Laborite Sees Abolition of UN Body as Step for Mid-East Peace

LONDON, (JTA) — Richard
Crossman, British Labor mem-
ber of parliament, asserted that
one of the first steps that should
be taken to end the state of
war beween Israel and the
Arabs would be to start bring-
ing to an end the United Na-
tions Relief and Works Agency
for the Palestine Refugees.
"The blunt fact," Crossman
asserted in a talk over the BBC
Hebrew Broadcast Service, was
that UNRWA as an institution
had become not merely a most
powerful propaganda weapon
against Israel, but a deeply
rooted vested interest in the
socio-economic life of the Arab
countries adjacent to Israel.
He said that impartial investi-
gators had proved "without
question" that the number of
refugees had been deliberately
inflated.
The Labor leader made his
comments in a discussion of the
final report by Dr. John H.
Davis as UNRWA commission-
er-general, to the current Gen-
eral Assembly of the United
Nations earlier this week.
Crossman declared that, by as-
serting there was no possibility
of winding up relief work for
the refugees unless the United
Nations was prepared to im-
pose physical starvation on the
refugees, Davis had "thrown
away his only ace." He held
that, by that statement, Davis
had also made it impossible for
either the Brfish or American
representatives to play the only
ace they had in dealing with
the problem.
With the aid of money col-
lected by the UN, mainly
from Britain and the United
States, and with the coopera-
tion of UNRWA officials,
Crossman asserted, the refu-
gees have organized them-
selves into a "powerful privi-
leged group" whose children
enjoy better health services
and far better education than
any other group of Arab chil-
dren in the Middle East.

Asserting that the number of
Arabs paid fulltime to run
UNRWA was out of all propor-
tio•1 to the work they do, Cross-
man declared that UNRWA,
which had originally been es-
tablished as a short-term mea-
sure to alleviate the aftermath
of war, had since become one
of the major obstacles to settle-
ment.
He declared there were today
nearly 1,000,000 Arabs with a
vested interest in the present
state of the Israel-Arab cold
war. In Jordan, he said, they
formed a large enough part of
the total population to have an
"absolutely decisive" voice in
Jordan's politics.
The Labor leader called on
either the United States or
Britain individually or joint-
ly to take the risk of permit-
ting a frank, impartial ex-

posure of the abuse to which
their taxpayers' money was
being put in UNRWA. He ar-
gued there was no use in
introducing proposals for end-
ing Israel-Arab tensions which
Israel might conceivably ac-
cept, and which any Arab
state could reasonably accept,
if it were known in advance
that the proposals would be
rejected by those "who con-
trol the refugees and who
know that peace means the
end of UNRWA."
Peace can come to the Middle
East only if a time limit is set
for the end of the agency and
when all details about UNRWA
are ruthlessly exposed to the
light of day, • he added. Sooner
or later, he declared, the "con-
spiracy of silence" must be
broken, and the Englishman or
American who succeeded in

doing so would deserve well not
only from the Israelis but also
from his own people, who have

Goldman Praises
Nobel Laureate

of achievements in politeness is
the ability to go through a door
"after" Wigner. On the Sunday
he received his Honorary Degree
from Yeshiva University last
June, his son graduated from
Hardvard College in Cambridge.
In spite of the significance of the
occasion for Dr. Wigner, he
would not leave until the last bit
of dessert was consumed at the
Commencement luncheon lest he
offend his hosts in New York.
"Dr. Wigner has authored 164
scientific publications including
several books that have become
bibles in their respective fields.
Wigner's Nobel Prize is not the
first one in the family. His
brother-in-law, Professor P. A. M.
Dirac of Cambridge University,
won the award in 1933. Profes-
sor Dirac has been visiting pro-
fessor at Yeshiva University dur-
ing the past two years."

LONDON, (JTA) — General
Labor Min-
ister, a hero of Israel's War of
Liberation, said that the Arab
threat to attack Israel over the

Yigal Allon, Israel's

Galilee Negev irrigation project
"may be an empty threat but

-

we are not taking chances and

we are ready to meet it."
The Labor Minister, who ad-
dressed the annual dinner of
the A n g 1 o-Israel Association,
touched on several issues of
Israeli security. Among other
subjects, he elaborated on the
frequently proposed offer by
Israel to sign a non-aggression
pact with its Arab neighbors.
