Krishnaswami; 2. a statement
made by Morris B. Abram, U.S.
member, implying that the
Soviet Union discriminates
against Jews as an ethnic group;
3. A statement filed with the
subcommission secretariat by
Label A. Katz, president of Bnai
Brith, on behalf of Bnai Brith
and the Board of Deputies of
British Jews.
Two members of the sub-
commission, one representing
the Soviet Union and the
other from Poland, maneu-
vered the debate in such a
way as to condemn racism
without touching on religious
bias. In the context of that
debate, Abram cautioned the
subconunission that the pro-
posed treaty must outlaw dis-
criminations against ethnic
groups as well as bias linked
with race or color.
"The Nazis," Abram pointed
out, "made a specialty of ethnic
discrimination. They prepared
elaborate charts by which they
graded ethnic groups into a sys-
tem of values. At the top were
the Aryans, lower came the Lat-
ins, still lower the Slays, the
Jews and the gypsies. This vi-
cious ladder of discrimination
was undoubtedly one of the
worst evils in the Nazi system
and furnished the basis for the
genocide campaign which de-
stroyed millions of Jews, Poles,
Russians and other Slays."
Then, obviously pointing at
the Soviet Union, Abram noted
that there are "some states
where laws forbid discrimina-
tion in the most forceful terms"
but where policies are carried
on which "may well have the
effect of obliterating an ethnic
group." Ethnic differences are
absolutely dependent on lan-
guage, schools, publications and
other cultural institutions in
order to survive. Cut an ethnic
tradition off from these, and it
will die, however nourished the
body of the citizen is by food,
clothing and shelter and how-
ever well treated he may other-
wise be. An ethnic group has
the right to survive as a group
as well as individuals."
"We should be able to pro-
hibit a state which makes pro-
vision for German-language
schools for that ethnic group
from denying Yiddish or Hebrew
schools to its Jews," he de-
clared. "A state which can per-
mit national and regional or-
ganizations of some ethnic
groups must permit the same
for others. A state which per-
mits recognized leaders of every
other group to travel abroad to
conferences and Holy Places
should not be able to deny that
right to others. A state that finds
facilities to publish textual ma-
terials in the language and tra-
ditiOns of some groups, should
not be able to deny this right
to any."

TEL AVIV (JTA)—An Egyptian air force captain on Sunday
landed his airplane at an Israeli airfield and asked for asylum.
He turned his aircraft over to the Israeli authorities.
The pilot, Cpt. Muhamed Abbas Hilmi, was flying a piston-
engined YAK-II.
Egyptian army planes tried to intercept Hilmi. But the
Egyptian interceptors fled back to their own territory when Israeli
air force fighter planes rose to protect Hilmi and escort him to
a safe landing at Israeli air base.
This was the first instance of an Egyptian pilot surrendering
voluntarily, together with his ship, to Israeli authorities.
His intention of landing in this country had evidently
become known to the Egyptians. But the Israeli fighters were
also on the alert, and assured the pilot's safe arrival and landing.
