JWV. Asks Expulsion of Two
Arab Diplomats for Improprieties

Two Arab diplomats, assigned
to Washington, who have im-
properly intruded into domestic
American legislative processes
`should be declared persona non
grata and told to pack their
bags," National Commander Mor-
ton L. London of the Jewish War
Veterans said in a letter to Sec-
. retary of State Dean Rusk.
1 London noted the "unseemly
intrusion of diplomats of the
United Arab Republic into
. domestic American political af-
fairs . . . defaming and slander-
ing a number of distinguished
'members of Congress of both ma-
•jor parties."
He said the Arab diplomats at-
tacked the Members of Congress
because of their expressions of
concern in Congress over Egyp-
tian acquisition of Soviet arms
and the role of Nazi and other
German scientists in the UAR
missile weapons program.
London cited a New York
Times report, attributing to Mo-
hammed Habib, press attache of
the UAR -Embassy, a statement
that "United States politicians
were using the issue of German
scientists for purposes of local
politics." The UAR Ambassador
reportedly made similar re-

tional Commander said: "This



arrogant attempt to smear mem-
bers of Congress and influence
voters by casting aspersions on

whose views are not to Egyptian
liking must be challenged."

Nazi Stickers Appear
in Australia; Posted
on Synagogue Walls

SYDNEY, Australia, (JTA)-
Australian Jewish leaders ex-
pressed concern about the ap-
pearance on public buildings of
pro-Nazi stickers. The stickers
bear the phrase: "Hitler was
right" and a four-inch swastika.
Some have been pasted on the
gates and walls of the Great
Synagogue in Sydney, prompting
Rabbi I s r a el Porush to com-
ment that "such incidents war-
rant suspicions that there is
more to this than is visible."
The stickers began appearing
in Sydney following Prime Min-
ister Menzies' denial last week,
in the Federal Parliament in
Canberra, that there was any
significant Nazi activity in Aus-
tralia. Security police in Syd-
ney have been checking reports
that 5,000 of the stickers have
been imported.
