State Dept. Against 'Coercive' Line
to Force Arabs to Abandon Boycott

Moslems Kill Jew
in Morocco Attack

PARIS, (JTA)—The murder
by strangulation in Casablanca
of a 50-year-old Jewish taxicab_
driver, Maklouf Dhriqui, by two
Moslems, was reported here.
He was strangled by a leather
belt. The general view among
Jewish leaders in Casablanca
was that the murder was the
work of anti-Semites. The vic-
tim was a friend of the vice-
president of the Em Habonim
Fund, which helps needy Jewish
children. No trace has been
reported of the killers.
The m u r d e r followed the
earlier killing of a young Jew
in a Moslem cinema. He re
ceived two knife wounds and in
that case too, there were no
arrests. Last week a Jewish
tradesman in Casablanca was
stabbed by a M o s 1 e,m from
whom he sought payment of a
debt.

has raised a query whether
such a condition would not be
an infringement of other inter-
national commitments.
Circles interested in both
Ceylon and Israel -affairs are
puzzled and disappointed by
the continued misunderstand-
ing in Ceylon-Israel relations
caused by the unilateral steps
taken last year by the Govern-
ment of Ceylon. While main-
taining diplomatic r e l a ti on s
with Israel and professing in-
terest in continued friendly
ties, the government last year
canceled the accreditation of its
minister to Israel.
While the reason for the step
—unprecedented between coun-
tries not divided by any con
flict—have never been fully
and frankly explained, it seems
to have been motivated mainly by
Ceylon's desire to avoid anta-
gonizing the Arab states and
jeopardizing its considerable
tea exports to those states.
It had been hinted, however,
that the accreditation of the
Ceylon diplomat had been ef-
fected in an irregular manner
by a previous government and

that his recall was designed
only to ,remedy that administra-
tive flaw and was not to be
construed as a concession to
Arab boycott threats.
It had therefore been hoped
that a new Ceylon envoy would
soon be accredited to Israel in
a regular fashion. As many
months have passed since the
recall and such a remedial step
has not been taken by Ceylon,
the feeling is gaining ground
that, after all, the recall was
motivated by Ceylon's desire to
appease Arab boycott threats.
This -impression damages Cey-

prestige, it is believed here.
