Senators Offer Amendment Banning
Aid to Nations Waging Hate Campaigns

ators Kenneth B. Keating, New
York Republican, and Paul H.
Douglas, Illinois Democrat, in-
troduced an amendment to the
Foreign Aid Bill to ban aid to
the Arab states or other govern-
ments which wage intensive
hate campaigns.
The bill was also co-sponsored
by Senators Hugh Scott, Penn-
sylvania Republican, and Wil-
liam Proxmire, Wisconsin Dem-
Keating told the senate that
Egypt's Nasser was "the main
offender in the exploitation of
hate propaganda." He cited a
U.S. Government report reveal-
ing accelerated Arab propagan-
da against Israel in the press,
radio and television in the last
six months.
While approving a clause in
the: House version of the For-
eign Aid Bill which could ban
aid to nations preparing mili-
tary aggression against neigh-
bors, Keating criticized the
omission from the bill of "propa-
ganda offenses which may re-
quire just as great a diversion
of funds as military prepara-
He said that "spending by the
underdeveloped nations on pro-
paganda is just as inimical to
the interests of peace as spend-
ing on actual weapons. To teach
national hatreds may be more
dangerous in the long run and
more conducive to hostilities."
He added that "Voice of the
Arabs" blocked peace moves in
the Middle East and that propa-
ganda expenditures were wholly
out of proportion in budgets of
nations like Egypt.
Keating also drew attention
of the Senate to a letter by na-
tional commander Daniel Hel-
ler, of the Jewish War Veter-
ans, to President Kennedy, op-
posing further aid to Egypt in

Soviet Union are forced to live."
The resolution, passed unani-
mously, called on Secretary

Israel Bond Sales This Year Reach
18 Per Cent Incre ase Over 1962

During the period from Jan. 1
through Sept. 13, a total of $34,-
050,000 in Israel Bonds was sold,
it was reported by Dr. Joseph
J. Schwartz, vice-president of
the Israel Bond Organization.
The amount represents an in-

Israel Reaffirms Support of UN
Policy Against A frican Apartheid


(JTA)—Israel reaffirmed its
support for a United Nations res-

Israel's government, the reply
stated, "has noted with deep

Africa. The Israeli letter noted
that "the people of Israel have
a deep abhorrence of all forms
of discrimination on grounds
of race, color or religion deriv-
ing from age-old spiritual values
as well as from lengthy and
tragic historical experience."

In addition to barring
Israeli arms to South Africa,
the letter declared, the Israel
government is "at present

The 18th sesssion of the
United Nations General As-
sembly opened Tuesday with
the perpetual Arab-Israeli
issues among the '77 items on
its agenda.

It was confidently predicted
here that the three UN bodies
dealing with Arab-Israel prob-
lems will continue their exist-
ence at the present levels into
1964. These bodies are: 1. The
United Nations Relief and
Works Agency for Palestine Re-
fugees, which has more than
1,000,000 Arab refugees on its
relief rolls; 2. The United Na-
tions Truce Supervision Or-
ganization, which maintains its
headquarters in Jerusalem's
No-Man's Land; 3. The United
Nations Emergency For c e,
which guards the Israel-Gaza
Strip border as well as the
Egyptian shores of the Gulf of
Akaba. There was no doubt in
highest diplomatic and Secre-
tarial circles here that the nec-
essary budgets will be voted for
all three groups.
Israel will come to the As-
sembly this year with a dele-
gation composed largely of ex-
perts who are well known here.

Twelve-year Israel Savings
Bonds purchased in 1951 are
now being repaid at the rate of
150 cents on the dollar.
Dr. Abba Hillel Silver, chair-
man of the board of governors
of the Israel Bond Organization,
who recently returned from a
visit to Israel, reported that the
country is "growing and devel-
oping at a remarkable pace.
Everywhere you turn," he said,
"you see new buildings spring-
ing up — public buildings,
schools, hospitals and many new
buildings for the incoming im-
Silver emphasized the signifi-
cance of Israel Bond purchases
in making possible Israel's rapid
rate of economic advance.


"The purchase of Israel
Bonds on the part of our
people," he pointed out, "is
evidence of their confidence
in the stability of the State
and their great pride in its
growth and development."

Campaign Chairman of the
Israel Bond Organization, out-
lined for the delegates Israel's

and settlement of Central Gali-

Aryeh Manor, Economic
Minister of the State of Israel,
said that Israel is making a
determined effort to find its
place in the markets of the
world, despite the problems
created by the establishment of
the European Common Market,
and the "surge of protectionism"
in many areas.


Asserting that a total of
1,250,000 Jews have entered
Israel since the establishment of
