tate news coverage of the Pope's
visit. Already, dozens of news-
men from all over the world
have made hotel reservations
here. Among them is a 10-man
crew from the television divi-
sion of the National Broadcast-
ing Company.
Israel's Cabinet, meeting on
Sunday, issued a statement
officially welcoming the forth-
coming visit of Pope Paul VI.
The statement said the visit
will be a "memorable event,"
and assured that everything
will be done by the govern-
ment to make all arrange-
ments.
Foreign Minister Golda Meir
reported to the Cabinet on Pope
Paul's forthcoming visit. A
spokesman for the Cabinet said
"in view of the importance that
the Cabinet attaches to this
matter," it issued the following
statement:
"The decision by Pope Paul
VI to make a pilgrimage to
the Holy Land, which he an-
nounced at the Ecumenical
Council of the Catholic
Church, is of great impor-
tance. This is a unique and
memorable event. The gov-
ernment of Israel welcomes
the Pope's intention to visit
our country. Every effort will
be made to ensure that the
conditions of the visit, and
all the necessary arrange-
ments, will be in full keeping
with its declared purpose and

the unique status of the Pope
for hundreds of millions in
the Catholic Church and in
the world as a whole."
Israel's Embassy in Rome
forwarded to Jerusalem the text
of the Pope's announcement to
the closing meeting of the sec-
ond session of the Ecumenical
Council on his planned visit but
officials in Jerusalem said that
nothing more had been re-
ceived. However, they wen t
ahead with plans for strict se-
curity precautions.

Although these activities have

from the fact that the Vatican
has never recognized Israel. He
pointed out that the Pope's
journey "is of a purely religious
character."
"As far as diplomatic contacts
are concerned," he stated, "the
situation is the same between
the Vatican and Jordan as it is
between the Vatican and Israel.
There are no established rela-
tions but the principal point is
that the whole event has noth-
ing to do with politics or proto-
col. There is free access to the
Holy Places for any pilgrim."

Rome said that "the spontane-

Pontiff's visit would be inter-
preted by the press as "recogni-
tion of Israel."
''Al Ahra m" also asked
whether there is a relation be-
tween the Pope's scheduled visit
to the Holy Land and the chap-
ter on Catholic-Jewish relations
pending in t h e Ecumenical
Council, which adjourned last
week without acting on that
chapter.

ous decision of the Pontiff" to
visit the Holy Land "was with-
out a doubt dictated by pro-
found religious motives. Since
the Holy Places are situated in
Israel as well as in Jordan, this
visit will not fail to have benefi-
cient e f f e c t s for pacification
among the nations of the Middle
East and thus for the peace of
the world."
An anti-Semitic pamphlet at-
tacking high prelates who it
charged were "in Jewish serv-
ice," was sent to the partici-
pants in the Ecumenical Coun-
cil which concluded last week.
The 18-page pamphlets were
signed "Bernardus."

Simon, in troducing the reso-

must be told "it is not enough
to address brotherhood ban-
quets. Action is necessary to
prevent a recurrence here of the
horrors that took place in
Europe."
Other organizations r epre-
sented at the meeting, in addi-
