Rustum Bastuni, Arab Ex-Member of
Knesset, to Speak in Detroit Feb. 9

Rustum Bustuni, prominent
Israeli Arab leader, a noted
architect and a former member
of the Knesset, the Israel Par-
liament, will be a guest here on
Feb. 9 and will address several
gatherings, at locations to be
announced next week.
Bustuni is one of a small
group of Palestinian Arabs who
advocated Arab - Jewish peace
and a common understanding
between the two kindred peo-
ples even before the establish-
ment of the State of Israel.
Despite great pressures, po-
litical and personal, he stood
consistently and fearlessly in
defense of his program for
amity, and he emphasized it
during his four-year term as a
member of the Knesset.
He became the spokesman for
large groups of Israeli Arabs
who reject all forms of national
chauvinism and who not only
accept their roles as citizens of
Israel, but regard themselves as
spearheads and vehicles in
breaking the ring of enmity
that surrounds Israel.
Bustuni explained, upon his
arrival in this country on a brief
visit, that he and his group are
battling for the creation of a
basis for peace and cooperation
between Arabs and Jews.
All groups and parties in Is-
rael have recognized Bustuni's
stature as a spokesman for his
people. He especially gained
recognition for his intensive re-
search into Arab village life in
Israel. As an eminent architect,
his gifts towards improvement
of Arab village life—economic-
ally and socially — have been
considered as especially effect-
ive.
Bustuni is one of the editors
of the magazine New Outlook,
an authoritative publication that
deals with ]problems in Israel



and the Middle East. Jews and
Arabs contribute to its columns,
with the ultimate aim of ce-
menting friendship between the
two peoples.
During his two-month visit in
this country, Bustuni aims to
enlist support for the peace-
sponsoring magazine, in order
that it may penetrate into Jew-
ish and Arab quarters, including
the Arab countries.
His address in Detroit will
be on the topic "The Key to
Peace in the Middle East."

NEW YORK, (JTA)—The re-
cent termination by Regie
Renault, French automobile
manufacturers, of the firm's
business relations with the
Kaiser-Frazer car assembly
plant in Israel, was denounced
here this week by leaders of
17 major American Jewish or-
ganizations as "capitulation" to
Arab pressures and "harmful
to American and • United Na-
tions efforts toward stability in
the Middle East and toward
world peace."
Pointing out that the Renault
Company has admitted that it
withdrew from Israel "because

Lindbergh Guilty of Anti-Semitism?
Memoirs Claim He Aided Jewry

NEW YORK — Suspicions of
anti - Semitism against Charles
A. Lindbergh, held in many
quarters since his acceptance of
a Nazi medal in 1938, may be
completely unfounded, it was
revealed this week.
A memoir reported in the
National Review, a conservative
weekly publication, written by
its editor,
John Cham-
berlain, re-
veals that
Lindbergh ac-
tually was be-
ing used, at
the time, as a
State Depart-
ment "decoy"
in the hope of
Lindbergh
winning relief
for downtrodden German Jews.
The Review article is based
on a manuscript written by Col.
Truman Smith, who was then
the U.S. military atttache in
Berlin, which is in the Yale
University Library.
Col. Smith's memoir states
that Lindberg had made five
missions to Germany, where he

won the confidence of Field
Marshall Hermann Goerring,
second in command to Adolf
Hitler at the helm of the Nazi
regime.
The first two missions, he
says, were carried on for the
purpose of obtaining military in-
telligence as to the German air
build-up, facts that were inac-
cessible to Smith and other
military personnel, but which
Lindbergh, as a world hero,
managed to obtain.
The third Lindbergh mission
was for the aid of German
Jewry, Smith's manuscript re-
veals. '
Working along with U. S. Am-
bassador Hugh Wilson, Lind-
bergh was to get Goerring to at-
tend an "airman's dinner" at
the U. S. Embassy. Here it was
hoped that Lindbergh would be
successful in appealing to the
German leader to ease the
plight of the Jews.
At the dinner, .Col. Smith's
memoirs continue, Goerring un-
expectedly produced the Service
Cross of the German Eagle and
gave it to Lindbergh with the
-statement that its was"for his
services to the aviation of the
world, and particularly for his
historic 1927 solo flight across
the Atlantic." =-
In a letter written by Ambas-
sador Wilson to Lindbergh in
1941, the Ambassador wrote,
"Neither you, nor I, nor any
other American present had any
previous hint that the presenta-
tion would be made." Its re-
fusal, the letter adds, would
have constituted "a breach of
good taste and an act offensive
to a guest of the Ambassador
of your country."
Acceptance of the medal and
Lindbergh's later campaign to
keep the United States out of
World War II was attacked in
many quarters as an act of anti-
Semitism, a label which has
stuck through,the years.
Col. Smith's memoirs reveal
that the flyer's wife, writer
Anne Morrow Lindbergh, on
seeing the decoration called it
"The Albatross," a reference to
the way a slain sea bird was
hung around a sailor's neck in
Samuel Taylor Coleridge's
"Rime of the Ancient Mariner"
as a. curse.

of pressure from the Arab
League Boycott Office," and
that, subsequently Renault was
taken off the Arab League's
blacklist, the statement de-
clared:
"The Arab League boycott
also makes it impossible to
achieve progress toward peace
in the Middle East. UN Secre-
tary General Dag Hammarsk-
jold has characterized the boy-
cott as a 'dead weight upon
our efforts.' It is a form of
political and economic aggres-
sion that creates and maintains
tension in the Middle East. By
keeping the Middle East in a
state of near war, the boycott
is a continuing threat to world
peace. So long as the boycott
lasts, interests vital to America
are jeopardized.
"The boycott has brought
about violations of the rights
of American citizenship and in-
terference with the freedoms to
trade, invest and travel. Be-
cause the boycott imposes un-
necessary expenditures and eco-

tries of the Middle East, it sub-
verts the purposes of United
States economic assistance and
makes the Middle East more
dependent upon such American
aid. Arab League economic
warfare therefore places un- •
necessary and additional bur-
dens upon the American tax-
payer.
"We shall continue to expose
these evils in the conviction
that on political and economic
as well as moral grounds, the
Arab League boycott must be
resisted by the United States
Government, by American busi-
ness, and by the American pub-
lic."
