Doubt Arab Unanimity on Refugee Plans;
Egyptian Press Calls Mufti Dangerous Man

LONDON (JTA) — Strong
doubts were expressed as to
the degree of unanimity with
which representatives of nine
Arab states, winding up a ten-
day conference at Beirut, re-
jected recommendations ad-
vanced by United Nations Sec-
retary General Dag Hammarsk-
jold for solution of the Pales-
tine Arab refugee problem.
Although the conference de-
cision was described as "unani-
mous," demands were repeated
by the Lebanese for a "positive"
approach to the problem. The
Kingdom of Jordan was said
to be receptive to the plan as
was Iraq. Both Jordan and Iraq
were described as being most
interested in the financial as-
pects of the Hammarskjold plan
which envisaged a capital in-

vestment of two billion dollars
for the economic development
of the Middle East and the
resettlement of the displaced
Arabs.
The Lebanon, with a popula-
tion almost evenly divided be-
tween Christians and Arabs,
would like to see a settlement
of the refugee problem which
would relieve it of the burden
of 100,000 refugees, nearly all
of them Moslem, whose settle-
ment in that country would
upset the present balance.
Violent opposition to the
Hammarskjold plan was led by
the United Arab Republic. Its
dictator, Col. Gamal Abdel Nas-
ser, has found the refugees a
useful instrument with which
to prolong restlessness and dis-
order in Jordan and other Arab

(The New York Times, in a
cable from Beirut, said that
"from the tone of some edi-
torials in the Arab press, it is
believed that there was pressure
within the conference to work
out a set of counter-proposals
that might have been consid-
ered a positive response to
Hammarskj old." The cable notes
