ator Kenneth Keating (R., New
York) called attention in the
Senate to the Arab summit con-
ference and said that "the
United States should take this
opportunity to make clear, once
again, that the U. S. will not
tolerate Arab efforts to block
reasonable Israeli diversion of
some of the waters of the Jor-
dan River." In warning of pos-
sible "extreme action" on the
part of the Arab nations, Sena-
tor Keating stated:
"Our Sixth Fleot is a potent
force. It should be alerted now
and in ensuing months to dis-
courage any Arab adventures or
military activities directed to-
ward Israel. The Jordan River
water plans were originally
based on joint Arab-Israeli co-
operation. The Arabs have no
right to deny Israel a share of
the Jordan waters. The tragedy
is Arab policies since the
e m e r g e n c e of Israel have
turned to unproductive hate."
Eshkol Confers With
U. S. Ambassador on Israel's
Water Pumping Plan
rael's Prime M i n i s t e r Levi
Eshkol held an hour-long talk
with U. S. Ambassador Wal-
worth Barbour during which
Israel's plans to start pumping
water from the Jordan River
and Lake Tiberias to the Negev
were discussed.
The United States is support-
ing Israel's water development
plan within the framework of
the regional water development
project developed by the late
Eric Johnston, special American
envoy who presented the pro-
ject to Israel and the Arab
countries about ten years ago.
It was learned here that the
U. S. and British embassies re-
minded the Arab rulers attend-
ing the summit conference in
Cairo that the two Western
Powers continue to stand by
their previous positions on the
regional use of the Jordan
River waters by Israel and the
involved Arab countries. The
U. S. and British embassies in
Cairo have also made inquiries
about the Arab military plans
decided upon today by the par-
ticipants of the summit conferL
ence of the Arab rulers.
(In Cairo, an Arab spokes-
man revealed that the American
and British embassies there re-
affirmed Western views on the
Arab- Israel situation in an ap-
parent warning to Egyptian
President Nasser that the U. S.
and Britain plan to stand by
their pledge to prevent armed
Arab-Israeli conflict.)
Moscow Incites Arabs
Against Israel's Project
warning carried by the Moscow
radio in Arabic urging the Arab
rulers at the Cairo summit
meeting "not to transform the
state of war existing between
Israel and the Arab countries
into a bloody battle" simulta-
neously incited • the Arabs
against Israel's plan to carry
water from the Jordan River
and Lake Tiberias to the
Negev, according to the text of
the broadcast monitored here.
Describing as "criminal atti-
tude Israel's decision to divert
the Jordan waters to the
Negev," Moscow radio told its
Arab listeners that "if Israeli
extremist succeed in complet-
ing this project, it will have
serious consequences for thou-
sands of Arab peasants," who
the Moscow radio claimed "will
be forced to abandon their vil-
lages in the Jordan Valley" and
seek livelihood elsewhere.

peated the usual Communist
propaganda line that Israel is
acting as a tool of American im-
perialism and claimed that the
cause of the "present Israeli
Arab conflict" is the unwilling-
ness of Israel, the United States
and NATO "to respect the rights
and interests of the Arab coun-
The Moscow broadcasts also
told the Arab listeners of re-
ports that "the Tel Aviv rulers"
have begun massing armed
forces along the borders. How-
ever, none of the broadcasts
monitored so far has come out
with a promise of Soviet sup-
port for the Arabs in case of
military action against Israel's
water scheme.

Community-wide interest is
being shown in the address to
be delivered Sunday evening,
at the Jewish Center, by Dr.
Erich Rosenthal, associate pro-

gy at Queens College of the

Flushing, Queens, on the sub-
ject "Intermarriage: Old Prob-

Arabs' Anti-Jewish Propaganda
Evokes Protest in W. Germany

Henryk G. Van Dam, secretary
general of the Central Council
of Jews in Germany, denounced
the distribution of an Arab-
sponsored pamphlet on the
Palestine refugees as a
"scandal" and a violation of the
West German constitution.
He said the pamphlet, which
was distributed by a delegation
of Arab states in Bonn and the
Information Bureau of the
United Arab Republic, was like
the Viejo u s l y anti-Semitic
material disseminated during
the Nazi era by Julius Streicher
one of the most rabid of the
The pamphlet was distributed
to many prominent Germans.
"The Jews were persecuted
by Byzantines, Russians and
Spaniards but never without
reason," the pamphlet states.
"The last great persecution
of Jews occurred under the
Hitler regime after the Zion-
ist organizations, using their
political marionettes, Winston
Churchill and Zionist Frank-
lin D. Roosevelt, succeeded in
bringing war to Germany. One
of the most popular Zionist
lies is that 6 million Jews
were liquidated by Germans
during that period."
Dr. VanDam, writing in the
organization's official publica-
tion, the Allgemeine Zeitung
der Juden in Deutschland, de-
"This kind of propaganda is
being spread in the German
language in the Federal Re-
public, just at the moment
when the Auschwitz camp trial
is taking place in Frankfurt.
Chancellor Ludwig Erhard is
negotiating with an American
President whose teacher and
ideal was Franklin Roosevelt
who, along with Win s t on
Churchill, is being labeled an
initiator of World War II."
Dr. Van Dam said that "a
logical result of such a pam-
phlet can only be the instiga-
tion of hatred of Jews, sabo-
tage of all efforts to develop
a spirit of citizenship, de-
terioration of relations be-
tween the Federal Republic
and the major powers, and
the approval of old and pre-
paration of new policies of
The German Jewish leader
requested that the laws against
anti-Semitic propaganda should
be applied "to the propaganda
modeled on that of Gauleiter
Streicher, disseminated in the
Federal Republic by foreigners
with the aid of foreign states.
The states involved are ones
which receive en or mous
amounts of development aid
paid for by West German tax-
payers, including Jewish tax-
payers," he stressed.
Although this propaganda ac-
tivity is disguised as anti-Israel
information, it is in fact direc-
ted at Jews living in Germany,"
he declared. He said that those

responsible, if they live in West
Germany, will have to answer
to the authorities and face
prosecution under the West
German criminal code.
This was a reference to a
paragraph of the code which
prohibits inciting hate against
any segment of the German
population of slandering any
religious, ethnic, national or
racial group.
