Come share this nachus (good fortune) with us!
Ttoar Texas Jewish Post is entering its twenty-third year of weekly
For us, it’s a simcha — a special joyous event. And it’s easy to
We know the average reader takes his newspaper for granted. It’s
here today and tomorrow the newsprint lined with the latest world-
shaking 3tory and columns of wisdom usually ends up lining the gar-
bage can if it's lucky to predominate there or it’s shredded into waste-
With us it’s a little special, however, Our TJPost — and yours —
has a longer life expectancy each week. Many folks have clipping books
of our recipes going back two decades. A recent reader wrote us that,
(because of a typographical error — oh, yes, we make them some-
times!) she used two dozen eggs and a half pound of sugar in a recipe
that called for 1/4 dozen eggs and a half cup sugar. “Who’s going to
eat this?” she demanded.
Others snip our birthday columns and bulletin-board them for fu-
ture use. Many praise our large pictures of Bat and Bar Mitzvah, En-
gagements, Weddings and other recorded joys in which we specialize.
And why shouldn’t we — haven’t Jews collectively and individually
been having enough tzurus (trouble) fending barbs, and other stings?
We are honored to print simchas and trust they’ll keep coming. One
critic blasted: “Oh, yes, you print all that social jazz so you get us to
read the other stuff!”
Now what about our other stuff? ,
Your Texas Jewish Post is inteersted in presenting all the local
news of every Jewish organization each week. Too, we give space to
worthy civic and community organizations. We also cover the regional
and national scene.
In the international scene your Texas Jewish Post has the services
of the Jewish Telegraph Agency, World-Wide News Service, Seven
Arts Features. London Jewish Chronicle News and Feature Service. The
latter service gives us an auxiliary staff of nearly 200 top reporters and
correspondents around the globe.
Our Man in Israel is the well-known author, lecturer and Technion
vice-president Carl Alpert whose home base is Haifa. He is employed
exclusively in Texas and the Southwest by us and no other newspaper.
Besides all this, we’re dedicated to £five you on the spot coverage.
To tabulate the personal visits we made to Israel and other news-mak-
ing areas of the world would be redundant. Let’s just tell you we are
jommitteed more than ever before to bring you the best newspaper
We still need your help to do this. There are people who do not
subscribe to the Texas Jewish Post regularly. We would be grateful if
our manv thousands of readers would pass their TJP’s to a friend who
doesn’t subscribe and ask them to consider it.

UN Meets To Discuss New Middle East Crisis;
Israel Destroys Half of Lebanese Airliners In Retaliation
For Attacks On El A! Plane At Athens Airport
BY JIMMY WISCH
Shades of 1956 were coming into closer focus as the United States and the Soviet Union joined other
nations in condemning Israel for its retaliatory attack on the Beirut Airport Saturday night which resulted
in the destruction of half of the Lebanese commercial airfleet.
Israel was provoked into the military response by the attack on an El Al jetliner last week by Lebanese
bas?d Arabs commandos which saw one passenger killed and the airliner under attach before the two were
apprehended by Greek authorities.
In the pre-Sinai campaign of 1956 Israel was expected to take every punishment the Arabs could admi-
nister and bow and say,"Thank you," while burying its dead and watching its country decimate into ob-
livion. The post-Sinai 1956 campaign revealed that the Soviet Union and the United States teamed to keep
Nasser in power as a symbol of Arab unity while Israel was promised safeguards against future Arab hosti-
lity and freedom of communication and exercise of national sovereignty.
This pipe dream faded following the rescue of Nasser and company. Resulting was a fuller penetration
of the Mediterranean by Soviet naval forces and greater reliance on Soviet equipment and counsel by the
Prodded by a new wave of hatred and frenzy the Arabs renewed their campaigns against Israel, never
learning from the past that Israel would not stand by idly and watch its people killed and its nation dis-
membered piece by piece. The Six Days War, or "Breakfast War" proved that!
Now, in this prelude to a possible fourth round of conflict, the Arabs feeling the movement of a grow-
ing pregnancy of war material by the Soviet Union again wants to test Israel's determination. Added to
this is the growing belief that the War in Vietnam will be settled and Israel's position as a defender of the
Asian flank for the Western world won't be needed much longer.
At this writing the United Nations is meeting to discuss methods of censure against Israel for retaliating
in greater strength that the Athens attack demanded.
It's time all the nations learned that Israel isn't playing games. She wants peace desparately and want to
recognize and be recognized. She will not allow her nation to be destroyed.
The time to talk peace is now. Instead of laying scenery for future Arab facades and playing into the
hands of the Soviet Union all nations should join in demanding a peace settlement.
That would be much better and wiser than playing games with human lives!
Also there are many firms who could but do not advertise with us.
We would welcome a well-meaning suggestion from patrons to business
establishments asking them to place an advertising message in your
Texas Jewish Post.
A newspaper is as strong as its community support from subscrip-
tions and advertising. A weekly English-Jewish newspaper will reflect
the strength and solidarity of the Jewish communities it represents and
When one considers the greatness of this precious country of ours
and how the Freedom of the Press is a living reality, one can see addi-
tional proof in the existence and perpetuation of the Anglo-Jewish
As we embark into our 23rd year of service, we want to thank our
mishbucha (family) of subscribers and advertisers — many have been
with us for 22 years.
We pledge our energy to bring you the best possible newspaper.
Thank you for your past patronage.
Have a healthy and happy New Year!
