New Anti-Jewish Measures Feared
In Morocco; Jews Charged with
Sending Delegate to WJ Congress

PARIS, (JTA)—Jews in Mo-
rocco were reported greatly wor-
ried over a bitter attack launched
against the Jewish community
there by the Istiqlal Party, the
dominant party in the govern-
ment.
The attack was made in the Is-
tiqlal newspaper Al Alam, which
charged the Jewish communities
with sending a delegation to the
World Jewish Congress parley
held in Geneva.

The paper, which often reflects
the government's view, said that
the delegation was headed by
David Amar, secretary-general of
the Council of Moroccan Jewish
Communities. It presenfed the
World Jewish Cpngress as a
"Zionist" body, and said that re-
ports of the Geneva meeting were
distributed "clandestinely" - to
Jews throughout Morocco.
The article was interpreted
in Paris as indicating that new

anti-Jewish measures may be
contemplated in Morocco. Le
Figaro, a leading Paris news-
paper, said that, should it be
proven that Moroccan Jews,
"even in a private capacity
and without official mandate,"
attended the parley, the situ-
ation of Morocco's remaining
160,000 Jews would become
serious, with unpredictable
consequences.
The Paris daily reported from
Morocco that large sectors of the
Moroccan Jewish community had
joined in the criticism of Amar,
asserting he had no right to ex-
pose them to difficulties by a
tending the Geneva confere
or by sending other deleg
Amar has vehemently denied
he was in Geneva. It was
gested that a misunderst
might have developed fro
fact that, while he was
Geneva at the time, some
Jewish Congress publication
ed him as an observer.
The Paris daily expressed
belief that,- when King Hassan
returns from the conference o
neutral countries in Belgrade, he
would investigate the matter and
that, if he found that Amar's
contention of not attending the
Geneva 'conference was correct,
the whole matter would be drop=
ped. However, the daily added, if
the King accepts the Istiqlal the-
sis that even the presence of
"observers" is the Jewish com-
munity's responsibility, then the
situation of the Jews • of Morocco
would be seriously affected.
In attacking the alleged par-
ticipation of Moroccan Jews in
the World Jewish Congress
conference, the official organ
of the Istiqlal Party requested
"merciless sanctions" and said:
"If the elected leaders of the
Jewish community have failed
in their duties as Moroccan
citizens and . prefer to serve
Zionist doctrine and - Israel,
this means that the persons
they represent are deliberately
and consciously hostile to na-
tional Moroccan policy."
The denunciation by Al Alam
came as an unexpected blow
since, in recent weeks, there had
been reports that the government
had decided to Implement the
policy of liberalizing Morocco's
attitude toward Moroccan Jews
promulgated by the late King
Mohammed V shortly before his
death.
The Central Statistics Service
of the Moroccan government
published the results of the 1960
census of the population show-
ing that there are now 159,803
Jews in Morocco. Of these, 151,-
245 live in 11'7 urban centers
and the remainder in rural areas.
The five largest Jewish commu-
niites are: Casablanca with 70,-
026 Jews; Rabat with 11,008
Jews; Marrakesh with 10,007
Jews, Meknes with 10,894 Jews,
and 87,032 Jews in Fez. There
are also 6,232 Jews in Tangier;
4,103 in - Teutan; 3,118 in Sefrou
and 2,917 in Seeaouria, formerly
Mogador.
Jews in Algeria Uneasy
as Terror Increases;
Several Reported Injured
ALGIERS, (JJTA)—Consider-
able uneasiness_ among the Jew-
ish population exists here, as a
result of new Jewish victims in
a series of terrorist outrages.
At Setiff a grenade was thrown
into the Bagatelle cafe, wound-
ing a number of persons includ-
ing Joseph Atlanti, a disabled
veteran of the first World War.
A plastic bomb was also thrown
recently into an apartment in
the Bab el-Oued quarter of Al-
giers wounding a Jewish prop-
erty owner, Prosper Atlan.
An Algiers Jewish merchant
was also shot and died of his
wounds. And late this week, a
grenade was thrown itno a cafe
in the Bab ol-Oued quarter in-
juring two Jews.
