Justice Department
Concerned Over
Rockwell, Muslims

The United States Depart-
ment of Justice, specifically
citing the Americn Nazi Party
and the Black Muslims, has ex-
pressed concern about "the
activities of extremist groups
which attempt to arouse racial
emotions" in the current civil
rights crisis and street demon-
The department's views were
stated in a letter to National
Commander Morton L. London
of the Jewish War Veterans of
the United States of America
from J. Walter Yeagley, Assist-
ant Attorney General for Inter-
nal Security_ The letter was
signed by Oran H. Waterman,
Chief of the Civil Section.
The activities and agitation of
the American Nazi Party and
the Black Muslim group have
been un d e r careful Federal
scrutiny, it was r e v e al e d.
Waterman made clear that the
department disapproves t h e
activities of both groups.
He said 'the dissemination of
Nazi doctrines by George Lin-
coln Rockwell and his followers
is contrary to American tradi-
tions and concepts of govern-
ment and warrants condemna-
tion by all thinking Ameri-
cans." As for the Black Muslims
(Nation of Isslam), the Depart-
ment has "b e e n aware" of
"many of its activities for a
number of years," including
violation of the Federal Selec-
tive Service act.
The letter from the Depart-
ment of Justice stated the Black
Muslims have not been declared
subversive becuse the group
has no link with any foreign

Egypt's German Scientists Raise Genocide Specter Over Mid-East

The West German govern-
ment is an "embarrassed and
unwilling arbiter" in the "cloak-
and-dagger war" over German
scientists who are developing
military weapons for Egypt, ac-
cording to the Saturday Evening
Post this week.
The secret war raging be-
tween Egypt and Israel, said
reporter Sanche deGramont,
is a "war threatened, attempted
and real murder, a war with
ugly overtones of racism on
both sides, a war for military
supremacy in the Middle East."
Recounting instances of un-
explained explosions, fatal air-
plane crashes, ambushings and
mysterious disappearances of
technicians, deGramont said
"the struggle centers on the
German scientists who work
for Egypt against Israel, and
in the background hovers
the specter of Hitler's 'final
solution of the Jewish prob-
Israel feels that Egypt is pre-
paring the extermination of
Jews, said deGramont. The is-
sue of the German scientists in
Egypt is viewed by Israel "as
the most dramatic facet of a
more serious problem—arms
escalation in the Middle East,"
he added.
"Germany, still sensitive to
reminders of Nazi war crimes,
replies that it can take no legal
action to keep its citizens from
working where they choose,"
deGramont observed.
The German rocket and mis-

sile scientists, he pointed out,
claim they are without political
interests, simply working for
"any government that provides
them with the most money and
the best research equipment."
Egyptian rockets designed
by the Germans are described
by some officials as not much
of- Fa improvement over
World War II German
models, without great mili-
tary value and more a matter
of prestige for Nasser. But
to Israel, they represent a
threat and a fear that "Egypt
is taking up where the Third
Reich left off," deGramont
The German engineers, tech-
nicians and scientists who for
Nasser "live in an atmosphere
combining luxury and fear," it
was stated. With monthly sala-
ries ranging from $1,000 to
$2,500, they are Cairo's "big
spenders . . . untouched by the
austerity which Nasserist social-
ism has imposed on Egypt," de-
Gramont stated.
One Israeli official empha-
sized that Nasser has "promised
the destruction of Israel and
one of these days he's going to
have to deliver," a threat Israel
is hoping to meet through its
own military build-up.
"So the enemies continue to
confront each other, each build-
ing weapons of mass destruc-
tion, weapons neither c a n
afford," The Post writer ob-
served. "So long as the world

remembers the monstrous Nazi
crimes against the Jews, it can
not easily accept the idea of
Germans building rockets aimed

against the Jewish state of
Israel. Nobody is more aware
of this than the German govern-
ment itself," he concluded.




TI 6-1122


A new German invasion has hit Cairo: A battalion of
450 scientists paid to supply nuclear rockets to Nasser.
In this week's Post, Sanche de Gramont describes
the desperate moves by Israeli intelligence to curb
this danger: warnings, shootings, even bombs in the
mail. Yet the Egyptian military buildup continues.
What can the West German government do about it?
How did these ex-Nazis get involved with Israel's
sworn enemy? Don't miss this thrilling account of
Nazis on the Nile. In the July 13-20 Post. Now

Smoke all 7 filter brands and you'll agree:
some taste too strong ... others taste too

Viceroy's got-the
