West Germany as war criminals.
Nasser noted that the Arabian-
American Oil Co. (after a ruling
by American courts) agreed to
employ Jews (in New York
State only). His radio and tele-
vision immediately charged that
hordes of Jews were being
shipped to Saudi Arabia by
ARAMCO. A typical Cairo broad-
cast said the "presence of Jews
among Arab employees and
workers in ARAMCO is no less
and perhaps even more serious
than the infiltration of Jewish
military men . . . This is only
a precedent. Oh, Arabs and Mos-
lems, if you neglect this—do not
rule out the possibility of seeing
Jews soon in the outskirts of
Using transmission facilities
and electrical current largely
fiir.nced by American taxpayers,
another Nasser broadcast
charged "it has now become
certain that American Jews are
breathing the air (of Saudi Ara-
bia) . .. The Palestine tragedy
is being repeated now. The Jews
have entered the Arabian penin-
sula under the guise of the
American Army, American units,
and American aid. It uses the
Saud family (Nasser's enemies)
that these Jews should tread
upon Holy Lands . . . Faysal
hopes to use these Jews to strike
the blessed Yemeni revolution
, . . He prefers that the penin-
sula be flooded with American
Jews . . ."
Secretary Rusk has not said
a word to Nasser about these
racist denunciations of Ameri-
cans of Jewish faith who
proudly serve in the military
uniform of the United States.
The State Department is cur-
rently concerned lest Congress
demand implementation of the
anti-bias clause in the Foreign
Assistance Law. The Department
wants to continue aiding Nasser
in hopes of bUying his favor in
the East-West struggle.
Policy makers have ignored
compelling evidence that t h e
American taxpayer is forced to
indirectly subsidize, through the
aid to Egypt, Nasser's continued
purchase of Soviet arms, the
training of young Egyptian of-
ficers in Soviet military schools,
and the proliferation of the mis-
sile race.
American aid enables Egypt
to exchange her entire cotton
crop for offensive Soviet weap-
ons, including jet bomber s,
rather than for food which is
furnished by America.
Is America to continue com-
batting racism at home while
subsidizing it abroad?

Toronto Jewish
Leaders to Help
Nazareth Arabs

TORONTO, (JTA) — An of-
ficial of the Israel Young Men's
Christian Association an-
nounced that two Toronto Jew-
ish leaders will have key posts
on a committee seeking to raise
$425,000 to help build a recrea-
tion center in Nazareth for Is-
raeli Arabs.
Rev. Herbert Minard, general
secretary of the YMCA in Jeru-
salem, said that John D. Fien-
berg, Toronto builder, and Leo
Weinstein, retail grocery execu-
tive, would assist J. Howard
Hawke, director of the cam-
paign in Canada. He said that
about $17,000 has been raised
by public subscription in Israel
and that Canadians will be
asked to contribute the balance
in the two-week campaign.
The two Jewish members of
the committee are active in Jew-
ish communal activities and in
fund-raising for the United Jew-
ish Appeal, the local Jewish
Welfare Fund and other activ-

U.S. Jewish Intellectuals Scored
for Views at Jerusalem 'Dialogue'

(JTA)—Rabbi Emanuel Rack-
man, professor of political sci-
ence at Yeshiva University,
told the 27th annual convention
of the Rabbinical Council of
America, meeting here, that
"the recent dialogue in Israel
made it absolutely clear that
most Jewish writers and intel-
lectuals are creating a distorted
image of the basic value of
Orthodox Judaism. They have
never acquired a firm and thor-
ough understanding of the vital
power and creative dynamism
of religious beliefs and histori-
cal truths.
"The discussions in Jerusa-
lem revealed that these literary
scholars are assuming the man-
tle of self-appointed spokesmen
and leaders for Judaism without
justification and reason due to
their divorce from and indiffer-
ence to Jewish religious com-
munity living and the daily
problems of religious orienta-
tion," Dr. Rackham said.
"Because of the misrepresen-
tation of these Jewish littera-
teurs, the non-Jewish world is
denied an opportunity to appre-
ciate the overwhelming contri-
butions which Orthodox Jews

are making in every avenue of
modern endeavor such as phys-
ics, chemistry, literature, art,
culture and music." Rabbi Rack-
man added that "Orthodox Ju-
daism has managed to resist
the encroachments of such alien
philosophers as Marxism and
Freudianism and to emerge
with a more favorable position
in the world of general ideas
and moral concepts."
Avraham Harman, Israel's I
Ambassador to the United
States, told the convention that
"religious ideals cannot flourish
and develop in a culture which
is oppressive to the freedom-
loving inclination of men."
Rabbi Abraham N. AvRutick
lauded the U.S. Supreme Court
decisions banning Bible reading
and prayers in public schools.
At the same time he suggested
the enactment of legislation to
grant income tax allowance to
parents for tuition for their
children attending r eligious
schools. He also appealed to
President Kennedy to use his
good offices to terminate the
armaments race in the Middle
