Israeli Opinion on Eichmann's Return; `No!'

(Continued from Page 1)
(Most of the press in Brazil,
according to dispatches from
Sao Paulo, holds that the moral
and human considerations • out-
weigh the strictly legal aspects
of the Eichmann case.)
Diplomatic sources said here
that France. had offered a com-
promise solution to the .Argen-
tine-Israeli dispute over the cap-
ture of Eichmann. Under this
plan, it was said, Israel would
agree to the return of Eichmann
—by proxy—to Argentina, and
would immediately initiate for-
ma} extradition demands which
Argentina would immediately
.grant. Argentine "face" would
thus be saved, and the capture
of Eichmann legalized.
(From Paris, it was reported
thats, a Fr en c h government
spokesman has declined to com-
ment on reports that France
might serve as mediator be-
tween Israel and Argentina in
•the 'dispute over the 'capture of
Adolf Eichmann in Argentina.
It was asserted, in Paris that
France would agree to act as
mediator only if Israel should
request it.)
The Argentine government
announced the arrest of Jan
Durcansky, a Czechoslovak resi-
dent, for extradition to Czecho-
slovakia on charges of mass
murder of Jews in that country
during World War II. A prelimi-
nary statement was taken from
him after the Czechoslovak lega-
tion here filed a formal peti-
tion for his extradition.
Uniformed Neo-Nazis
Picket White House
in Defense of Eichmann
uniformed squad of George Lin-
coln Rockwell's neo-Nazi• brown:-
shirts, wearing swastika arm-
bands, picketed the White
House last Saturday, bearing
placards urging gassing of Jews.
Police Sunday arrested two

supporters of Lincoln Rock-
well's neo-Nazi group on charges
of disorderly conduct at a Nazi
rally near the U.S. National
Archives Building. One of the
men arrested participated in the
picketing of the White House
at which time he wore a brown-
shirt uniform and swastika arm-
band. Rockwell's meeting Sun-
day ended in confusion as sev-
eral non-Jews heckled the neo-
Nazi leader.
B G, Frondizi May Meet
on Eichmann Incident


(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
Special to The Jewish News)

PARIS. — Sources close to
Prime Minister Ben-Gurion's
party here indicated Tuesday
that a meeting between Israel's
Prime Minister and President
Frondizi of Argentina was pos-
sible, but if it took place it
would not be in France. Such
a meeting, it was presumed,
would deal with the impasse in
Israel-Argentine relations aris-
ing from the Eichmann case.
A meeting in France was
ruled out by the schedules of
the, two leaders. Ben-Gurion is
leaving France on June 20 and
Frondizi is arriving on June 22.
A meeting might materialize in
Holland or Belgium, which both
leaders will be visiting after
their French tours are finished.
It was learned that no initi-
ative had yet been taken to ar-
range such a meeting, but also
that the possibility had not been
ruled out.
(The London Daily Express
reported that Argentine au-
thorities had cooperated in Eich-
mann's capture out of fear for
"international embarrassment"
if they interfered.)

added that Eichmann should
not be returned to the coun-
try where he found a quiet
shelter for so long.
"Even if the price for this is
high, as it may be, it is not only
Israel's right to try Eichmann
but also the obligation given to
Israel by the 6,000,000 Jews who
cannot say anything now," the

est circulation in Israel, stated.
Israeli experts on interna-

tional law asserted that Argen-
tina was in error in saying, in
its note demanding Eichmann's
return, that Eichmann was be-
ing charged by Israel with geno-
cide and, therefore, he should
be tried in the countries where
he committed his crimes or be-
fore an international tribunal.
The experts emphasized that the
charge against Eichmann, as
stated before Haifa Magistrate
Alfred Bach, w ere crimes
against humanity under. the law
for punishment of Nazis and
their collaborators, which is an
Israeli law.
It was' also noted that the
Israel - Argentine extradition
treaty, signed shortly before
Eichmann's capture, has not yet
been ratified by either country.
Moreover, Israelis were becom-
ing doubtful that Argentina
would have extradited Eich-
mann, noting that Argentina
has not extradited various ex-
Nazis whose return has been
requested by several countries,
including West Germany and

Threatening letters in connec-
tion with Eichmann's arrest
continued to arrive addressed
to various members of the Is-.
rael Cabinet. More than a half
dozen have been received at
Prime Minister David Ben-Gti-
rion's office written in various
languages, ,some from France
and some from Germany. Some
of the letters, were mailed in
Israel and while these also were
turned over to the Security
Service, it was believed they
were the work of pranksters.
Argentina Refused to
Extradite Nazi Charged
with Killing Jews
BONN, (JTA)—The Bamberg
public prosecutor revealed in
connection with the controversy
over the Israeli seizure of Adolf
Eichmann, that Argentina sev-
eral years ago refused a West
German request for extradition
of a former German Foreign
Office official accused of par-
ticipation in the wartime mass
Murders of Jews.
The Federal Republic had
asked Argentina for the extra-
dition of Karl Klingenfuss, a
counsellor in Hitler's Foreign
Ministry. Inquiries 'into - Kling-
enfuss' case were opened in 1952
on the basis of information 01347
tamed in the prosecution of
Fritz Rademacher, another for-


mer counselor. R a dema cher
was sentenced to three years
and five months' imprisonment
when he was convicted as an
accessory in the killing of 1,300
Siberian Jews. He escaped while
his appeal from the sentence
was pending.
Ambassador Leaves Israel
dolfo Garcia Arias, Argentine
Ambassador to Israel, left for
Buenos Aires. He was summon-
ed home for consultation on the
case of Adolf Eichmann, the
Nazi specialist in the mass mur-
der 'of Jews. •
Prior to his departure, Dr.
Arias conferred with high offi-
cials of the Israel Foreign Min-
istry. At the airport at Lydda
he told reporters: "The difficult
situation that has arisen over
Eichmann brought about my
leaving for Buenos Aires." He
was believed to be indicating
that he has not been recalled,
and that he expects to return.
Mrs. Arias returned to her
home here, which is being
guarded - by Israel police. The
Argentine Embassy, too, is un-
der special guard since an
anonymous telephone call was
received by police authorities
:Friday, Warning that bombs had
been placed at 'the Embassy as
well as at the Arias home. A
police official said a search of
both places had revealed no
explosives. .
