Fate of 13 Men to Decide Future

last two years. On the other
hand, a greater desire for emi-
gration to Israel is seen among
Jews.
Moroccan Jews are watching
to see how the government will
treat the 13 Moroccan Jewish
men recently arrested in Nador,
where they were apprehended
for allegedly trying to leave for
Israel with forged passports.

T h e ultimate treatment of
these "unfortunates," says Le
Monde, will provide to Moroccan
Jewry the clue as to the gov-
ernment's ultimate intentions
regarding all Jews in the king-
dom. These 13 Jews were re-
ported trying to enter Algeria
March 20, presumably on their
way to Israel, with 38 Jewish
women and children.
Moroccan authorities per-
mitted the women and children

to return home after they had
held them for two days, while
the men had been imprisoned
in Nador, in northeast Morocco,
about 65 miles from the Alger-
ian border.

the entire community is in-
vited to participate in this trib-

ute to the heroism of Jews
who fought against overwhelm-
ing odds "to live with dignity,
to _die with honor."

JERUSALEM. — Following
three Cabinet sessions which
deliberated on the reserves
callup broadcast of April 1 the
government Tuesday fixed the
responsibility on two brigadiers
who are recommended for trans-
fer to other positions.
They are Head Administra-
tion Brigadier Meir Zorea and
the Head of Intelligence Briga-
dier Jehoshephat Harkavy.
The Cabinet requested De-
fense Minister Ben-Gurion to
effect transfers, with existing
ranks, for failure to carry out
exact instructions and failure
to submit the plan and timing
of the callup broadcast.
The broadcast, in which
created an international stir and
sowed panic among the popu-
lace locally, led to an enquiry
committee and motions of non-
confidence in the Knesset.
Ben-Gurion, in the capacity of
Defense Minister, told the Cabi-
net Tuesday that measures had
been taken to prevent any re-
currence. The Cabinet did not
criticize the new directive to
call up reserve, via the radio,
but found that no proper steps
were taken regarding the April
1 callup.
A Cabinet spokesmen told the
press that the transfer decision
does not reflect on the person-
alities of either high ranking
officer.

ROME, (JTA)—Vatican cir-

favor of establishing diplomatic
relations between the Vatican
and Israel, it was indicated here
by Ecomond, an Italian news
agency.
"There has been favorable

Israel's Premier David Ben-
Gurion to a group of American
journalists concerning Israel's
desire to establish diplomatic

PARIS, (JTA)—Through vari-
ous stratagems, which have no
legal basis, Moroccan regional
authorities are preventing Jews
from obtaining documents
needed for travel to Israel, ac-
cording to a report received
here.
The report, printed in the in-
fluential newspape, Le Monde,
declares that Moroccan Jews
wishing to go to Israel must
resort to getting forged pass-
ports. Moroccan Jews are re-
ported suffering from economic
difficulties and continuous ha-
rassment.
Among "petty administrative
measure s" reportedly taken
against Moroccan Jews recently
have been the supression of
Jewish broadcasts in the king-
dom and hampering postal ex-
changes attempted by Moroccan
Jews, both inside the country
and in small contact with Israel.
