Report Many Algerian Jews Flee Homes
After Clash with Moslem Rebels in Casbah

PARIS, (JTA)—While order
was . ;restored Tuesday in the
Casbah at Algiers, following two
days of wild rioting in which
Moslems attacked Jews and vir-
tually wrecked the Old Syna-
gogue on the Place Rondon, the
situation of the Jews in Algeria
remained grave and tense, ac-
cording to dispatches received
here. The flag of the National
Liberation Front still flew from

have charged that Jews fired
on the rebels from the balconies
and windows of -their homes.
These allegations are called by
the Jewish leaders in Algiers
"completely unfounded."
The fighting in Algiers came
on the heels of other Moslem
attacks against Jews in various
towns in Algeria. In the capital,
Algiers, many Jews are re-
ported to have fled their homes
nd shops, abandoning all their
ongings, and taking shelter

her Abduction of 2
Girls, Escorts' Death

ALGIERS, (JTA)—The Jewish
population of Rabat was shocked
by the murder of two Jewish
youths and the abduction of two
Jewish girls whose whereabouts
were still unknown. The four
young people were attacked while
en route to their homes. The
bodies of the youths were found
later.
The crime has further increased
the uneasiness of Moroccan Jewry
in the deteriorating political situ-
ation. The double murder and
abductions followed the recent
seizure and forced conversion of
a number of Jewish girls and
their subsequent forced marriages
to Moslems. Jewish leaders who
met recently with Crown Prince
Moulay expressed their fears
about the situation.

Reassures Jews
on Algeria Status

PARIS, (JTA)—Prime Minis-
ter Michel Debre gave assurance
in Parliament that all French-
men in Algeria, "whether Chris-
tians, Moslems or Jews," will
keep their nationality regard-
less of the outcome of the corn-
ing referendum.
During a full dress debate
on the Algerian problein, the
Premier said that all Algerians
with French nationality could be
certain they would keep such
nationality for themselves and
their descendants "if they so
want, whatever the outcome of
the public referendum" on the
future of Algeria may be. That
assurance also had been given
in private talks between high
French Government officials
and Jewish leaders.

At Constantin, Arab rebels
exploded a mine in the vicinity
of the local synagogue. There
were a number of casualties
but the censorship has forbid-
den transmission of dispatches
giving details as to the number
of dead or killed and as to
their identity.
In Oran, Moslem demon-
strators desecrated the Jewish
cemetery, overturning tomb-
stones and inscribing anti-Jew-
ish slogans on the walls sur-
rounding the burial grounds.
One Algerian terrorist, who
was convicted of tossing a hand
grenade into a Jewish shop at
Blida, was sentenced to death
by a military tribunal at Al-
giers. The man had thrown the
grenade into the shop owned
by M. Ben-Hamou at Blida. The
military court gave the terrorist
a speedy trial, obviously in an
effort to help deter further anti-
Jewish attacks.
At the height of the Casbah
rioting Sunday and Monday,
many Jews were beaten. It is
not known here whether any
Jews were killed. The terror
stricken Jews were surrounded
twice by two different groups—
first by about 100,000 Moslems
in the midst of whose quarters
they live, next by regiments of
French paratroopers who enter-
ed the Casbah to subdue the
rebels. Some of the Casbah Jews
were evacuated by the French
soldiers:

CASABLANCA — Me
Obadia, president of the
ish community in Casab
and a candidate for electio
the Casablanca Chamber o
Commerce and Industry, said
Wednesday that friendship be-
tween Jews and Moslems in
Morocco was more than ever
indispensable.
In an interview in "Al Alam,"
Obadia said that such friend-
ship was necessary to save
Morocco's economy and he
warned that "there must be no
support of discrimination be-
tween Jews and Moslems, be-
tween black and white."
He expressed confidence in
the future of Morocco under
the regime of the present king,
adding he was against any re-
gime which discriminates. He
added he himself had been a
victim of discrimination during
the Petain regime, explaining
he had been expelled by a
college where he had taught
Arabic.
He said that the king had in-
vited the assistance of the vari-
ous elements of the Moroccan
population. He said Moroccan
Jews "are working for the in-
terests of Morocco and our
king."
