B-G Sees Hope
for Arab Peace


for immigration of ' 1,500,000
Jews from the Soviet Union and
for the possibility of a peace
settlement with the Arabs dur-
ing Israel's second decade were
expressed by Prime .Minister
David Ben-Gurion.
He expressed these views in
a letter to Yisrael Galilee, a
member of Parliament from the
left-wing Achdut Avodah party.
The Prime Minister urged clos-
ing of ranks between workers
and pioneering elements of
Israel "in view of the fateful-
period which may prove more
decisive than 1948."
The Prime Minister warned
in the leter that Israel may be
faced with a "severe and dan-
gerous . military test," which
made it imperative that Israel
muster all of its material, tech-
nical, moral and spiritual re-
sources. He also wrote that the
immigration he expected from
Russia might prove to be the
most difficult burden which
could only be carried out with
the vast resources and coopera-
tion of Jews throughout the
Differences of opinion be-
tween parties need not prevent
cooperation the Prime Minister
said. He added that he deplored
election smears which "were
shameful and damaging to the
workers' unity."

Judaism Council
`Rigged' Report,
Charges Rabbi

NEW YORK, (JTA) — Rabbi
Irving Miller, chairman of the
American Zionist Council, ad-
dressing the dinner of the
Zionist Organization of America
at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel
Monday night, charged the Am-
erican Council for Judaism
with "rigging" its. news report
of a reply it received from
Parker T. Hart of the State De-
partment, to a • communication
from the president of the Am-
erican Council for Judaism,
Clarence L. Coleman, Jr. Rabbi
Miller said -"the report was
rigged in a manner best cal-
culated to serve that organiza-
tion's nefarious purposes."
Objecting to -repeated refer-
ences in recent UN debates to
the Jewish people and to their
ancient homeland, C olem an
asked the State Department to
reaffirm our government's op-
position to the "involuntary
association" of American citi-
zens with Israel. In his reply,
Hart wrote: "It is my consid-
ered belief that other govern-
ments are fully aware that the
United States Government does
not condone the involuntary
identification of its citizens with
a foreign state."
However, Hart further de-
clared: "I .believe there is also
a common awareness inside and
outside our country of the un-
divided loyalty which American
citizens, regardless of their
race, color or creed, possess
for their country and their
Rabbi _Miller said by deleting
this sentence from its press re-
lease, the American Council for
Judaism "distorted the intent
of the State Department letter."
This, he stressed, "is another
example of its fear psychosis
which leads the,American Coun-
.cil for Judaism. to attack the
loyalty of American Jews to
their country."
