Plan Revisions in Arab Policies

sweeping revision in the Israel
government's policy toward its
Arab citizens, aimed at making
them fully_ integrated and pa-
triotic Israelis, has been de-
cide& on in highest government
circles for eary implementation.
Under the proposed new pol-
icy, which also would look to-
ward developing Israel's Arab
population as a bridge toward
friendship with neighboring
Arab countries, rather than a
suspected minority, military
government would be continued
in Arab-populated areas. How-
ever, its authority would be
strictly limited to security
matters, with all other proced-
ures transferred to normal civ-
ilian authorities.
The plan 'calls for an effort
to employ a substantial num-
ber of Israel Arabs in all Min-
istries except Defense and Fi-
nance where security problems
are involved, it was reported.
Another projected step would
be arrangements for many Arab
teachers to teach in Jewish
Schools and Jewish teachers in
Arab schools.
Landless Arabs commuting
daily from villages in neighbor-
ing major towns and cities
would be encouraged to settle
in urban areas permanently in
Government-aided housing, it
was reported. The Municipality
of Haifa, it was understood, a
city in which the largest num-
ber of such commuting Arabs

are employed, is willing to ab-
thousands of Savings Bonds for
sorb in housing and permanent people who have had their
employment many thousands of Bands burned, stolen, or de-
these Arabs.

er and a forester, at Bad Nau-
heim, sentenced to two months
and four months, respectively;
and a housewife at Steinheim,
fined 200 marks.
In Hanau, a 45-year-old lab-
orer was sentenced to two
months in jail for yelling at a
Jewish bar owner that "since
Hitler forgot to kill you, I will
do it now." The laborer, Ernest
Krebs, pleaded before the
Hanau Jury Court that he had
been intoxicated but Judge A.
Gatzsche said "severe punish-
ment" was needed as a deter-
rent to others.
At Launburg, in Schleswig-
Holstein, parents complained
that a high school principal "un-
justly" caused the arrest of a
15-year-old boy caught painting
the swastika on the walls of the
school building.
At Wetzlar, a 12-year-old boy

was sentenced in juvenile court
to detention, after being caught
scribbling on a shop window the
words "SS Is Fine." The boy's
parents claimed the letters SS
stood for the name of his girl
friend, Susanna Schmidt, and
not for the initials of the Hit-
ler security police. The court
threw out the complaint, al-
though of ascertained that the
boy's mother had been a school-
mate of the late Josef Goebbels.
