IT JEWISH NEWS — Friday, December 8, 1961

Keep your eyes on the Africans. And your ears should be directed
toward catching their attitude.
Some of the Africans are, indeed, so fed up with the Arab
ranting that they are inclined to end it once and for all. They
are considering the introduction of a resolution that would put
the Assembly on an entirely different path. They want the Assem-
bly not to stop at a re-study of the refugee problem, but to take
a real, hard, fresh look at the entire Arab-Israel situation. Some
of the Africans are carrying around with them drafts of possible
resolutions on that overall subject. Some of them have already
begun to line up sentiment—and votes—on behalf of such a reso-
lution, not only among other Africans and among Asians but also
among Latin American and other delegations.
The Arabs are so busy listening to their own voices that they
cannot hear the rumblings of the explosion being prepared—an
explosion that could blow their entire anti-Israeli campaign
sky-high.
While peeling one's eyes on the African posture, the keen
observer will also not fail to watch the American delegation.
The pressures brought on Dr. Joseph E. Johnson, who changed
his refugee report in an effort to appease the Arabs, show how
even good, sincere men can be talked into amending their own
position. at the behest of loud barkers. The same could happen
to the American delegation here, at least on some points.
One excuse used by the American delegation during the
Arab refugee debate in the last Assembly is no longer valid. As
recently as last spring, the Americans could claim they are not
yet experienced enough in dealing with the - Arabs. Now Ameri-
cans are well prepared, thoroughly briefed. If they falter during
this debate, falling now and then into the Arab camp—they will
do so with eyes open—and with State Department acquiescence.
Now, through the fog, one can perceive certain moves. The
African eruption is one. The American stance is the other.
Those who are concerned with Israel and its relationship to the
Arab refugees are watching those two barometers—the Africans
and the Americans.
