Arabs Told to Forget 'Extermination'
War on Jews; Jordan Opposes Kassem's
Plan to Elevate Mufti as State Head

Arab world was advised by
Radio Baghdad, in a broadcast
monitored here, to forget the
idea of a "war of extermina-
tion" against Israel.
The broadcast was made in
support of Iraq Premier Kas-
sem's plan for creation of a
"Palestine Republic" under the
leadership of the former Mufti
of Jerusalem, Haj Amin el Hus-
seini, one-time Nazi 'collabo-
rator. Renewed opposition of
the plan, which would require
Jordan to give up the territory

west of the Jordan it absorbed
during the attack on the new-
born State of Israel in 1948,
was expressed by Hazzi Majali,
Jordanian Prime Minister.
The Jordanian Prime Minister
said in Amman that the Jordan
government did not recognize
the Arab Higher Committee or
any other body as the legal rep-
resentative of the Arab refu-
gees. The refugees would, un-
der Premier Kassem's pro-
posals, become the citizens of
the proposed new Arab state.
