Israel Press Criticizes Ben-G urion Visit wit h Adenauer
The strongest criticism came


New York meeting between Is-
rael Premier David Ben-Gurion
and German Chancellor Konrad
Adenauer drew critical com-

pers, some of them representing
the views of parties in the gov-
ernment coalition.

atrocities or latent anti-Sem-
The paper complained that
Ben-Gurion seemed to be judg-
ing by Dr. Adenauer, who was a
product of the pre-Nazi era, and
said he could not know what
the face of Germany would be
after Dr. Adenauer disappeared
from the scene.
The newspaper also warned
of the implications the meeting
could have on Israeli-Soviet re-
lations since, it said, Dr. Aden-
auer symbolized the most ex-
treme anti-Soviet attitude.
The newspaper Al Ha-Mish-
mar, organ of the Mapam party,

described the meeting as a
painful fact interpreted in a
harmful, serious way." Lamer-
hav, organ of the Achdut-
Avodah party, noted editorially
that the meeting had "saddened
and depressed many Jews in
Israel and abroad."
Tel Aviv evening newspapers
reported that a result of the
Ben-Gurion-Adenauer meeting
in New York last week might
be a German loan to Israel of
$75-100,000,000 for industrial
development. Chancellor Aden-
auer was reported to have told
Ben-Gurion that he would be
prepared to push such a loan.
