Sharett Raps B-G
for Defense of Plane
Landing on Sabbath

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

JERUSALEM — Moshe Shan
ett, former Prime Minister and
ex-Foreign Minister of Israel,
now chairman of the Jewish
Agency Executive, made public
Tuesday a sharp letter to Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion crit-
icizing him for some remarks
made during a debate in the
parliament here last week.
In the Knesset debate, a rep-
resentative of Agudat Israel
had reprimanded the govern-
ment because an El Al passen-
ger plane bringing some Bar
Mitzvah boys to Israel had
landed at Lydda Airport on a
Friday evening after sundown,
thus violating the Sabbath.
Angered by this attack, Ben-
Gurion told parliament that the
flight of the boys had been
sponsored not by the govern-
ment but by the Jewish Agency.

Reca mg that for 13 years
prior to the establishment of
the State of Israel Ben-Gurion
had been chairman of the
Agency, Sharett held that Ben-
Gurion "could hardly be ignor-
ant of what the Agency does."
He pointed out that Ben-Gurion,
himself, has presided over the
periodic meeting s - of the
Agency's government coordinat-
ing board set up under ari agree-
ment between the government
of Israel and the World Zionist
Organization.
Ben-Gurion on Wednesday
replied to Sharett. In cordial
terms, Ben-Gurion replied to his
former cabinet colleague assur-
ing Sharett he was "fully
aware" of the Agency's activi-
ties in the fields of immigra-
tion absorption of newcomers
and settlement.
Ben - Gurion, however, re-
peated his insistence previously
expressed in the parliament
during a debate last week that
the government was not respon-
sible for the fact that an El Al
plane bringing Argentine Bar
Mitzvah boys to Israel had
landed at Lydda Airport on , a
Friday evening after sundown,
thus violating the Sabbath.
"The Government Tourist Of-
fice," Ben-Gurion said in his
letter to Sharett, "had no part
in arranging this tour and the
government is not the proprie-
tor of the Jewish Agency."
With Ben-Gurion's reply, it
is believed that the issue be-
tween him and the Agency
chairman is now closed.

London Court Rules
Israeli Is Extraditable
on Kidnaping Charge

LONDON, (JTA) — Shalom
Shtarkes, an ultra-Orthodox Isra-
eli, is back in prison here again
after a hearing at which a magis-
trate ruled that the kidnaping of
his nephew charged against him
by Israeli authorities was extra-
ditable.
An attorney sought a postpone-
ment of the case on the basis of
a presentation of a Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency bulletin in which
Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion
was quoted as saying during a
debate in Israel's parliament
that the nephew, Yossele Shu-
macher, was kidnaped by his
aged Orthodox grandfather.
The attorney said that if this
was the case, then his client
could not be charged in London
with the kidnaping. The request
for postponement, to confirm the
Prime Minister's statement, was
rejected by the magistrate.
