JERUSALEM — A request
by the opposition Herut party
for a parliamentary investiga-
tion into the quality of Israel's
military leadership during the
War of Liberation was the
latest development Tuesday in
a new controversy initiated by
former Premier David Ben
Gurion.
The former premier had de-
claired, in an interview with
HaBoker, a morning newspaper,
he believed that if Moshe Day-
an, now agriculture minister,
had been in command, Israel's
borders would have been "dif-
ferent" and its military achieve-
ments "greater."
Gen. Dayan had led a com-
mando unit which scored
great success in the 1948-49
war. He became chief of staff
in 1953 and commanded Is-
rael's forces in the defeat of
Egypt in the 1956 Suez Cam-
paign.
The statement was viewed as
downgrading the military
achievements of three former
commanding generals — Yaacov
Dori, chief of staff in 1948 and
now president of Technion;
Yigal Yadin, chief of operations
under Gen. Dori, later chief of
staff and now a leading archae-
ologist; and Maj. Gen. Yigal
Allon, now labor minister, who
commanded • several major
fronts in 1948.
Dori declined to comment,
but the other two officers re-
torted that as prime minister
and defense minister, Ben Gur-
ion was responsible for politi-
cal decisions which prevented
the armed forces from "freeting
the whole of Israel."
Four other former command-
ers in the 1948 war joined in
support of Gen. Yadin's counter-
charge that the final borders
were fixed by political decisions
for which Ben Gurion was re-
sponsible. They were Brig.
Moshe Carmel, Maj. Gen. Haim
Laskov, Maj. Gen. Mordechai
Makless and Israel Galili, for-
mer deputy secretary of de-
fense. Generals Laskov and Mak-
leff are former chiefs of staff.

Achdut Avodah, joined with
opposition party speakers
during debate in parliament
on the budget of the prem-
ier's office, in asserting that
the mistakes which prevented
the "total liberation" of Pal-.
estine were political and
therefore the responsibility
of Ben Gurion.
HaBoker Monday published an
item on the circumstances sur-
rounding Ben Gurion's state-
ment. HaBoker reported that
the former premier had hailed
all Israeli chiefs of staff and
said other nations would have
been blessed to have such mili-
tary leadership. Then he pro-
ceeded to make his comment
that the results would have been
better if Gen. Dayan had been
chief of staff in 1948.
Supporters of the former
premier insisted that what he
had said had not been under-
stood precisely and that in any
case his views were not those
that had been published in the
interview.

Mrs. Meir in Brussels for Talks
on Euromart Link; Assures British
That Arab Lag Boosts ME Peace

BRUSSELS (JTA) — Israel
Foreign Minister Golda Meir
met with government officials,
continuing her conferences with
members of the European Eco-
nomic Community over Israel's
efforts to conclude a satisfactory
trade agreement with the Com-
mon Market countries.
She had a talk with Jean Rey,
the members of the EEC Com-
mission in charge of external
affairs, and was received by
Prime Minister Theo le Fevre.
In London, before departing
for Brussels, she said peace in
the Middle East might be re-
garded as becoming more a
reality because the Arab rulers
have placed themselves in a
strategic bind.
She told a press conference
that the announced Arab in-
tention is not to attack until
they are sure of victory. While
they await that occasion, Is-
rael is steadily growing
stronger, making the projected
attack "a less and less attrac-
tive proposition," she said.
In the wide-ranging interview,
she also said that the projected
tap of the Jordan River would
go into effect some time this
year and called the Arab threat
of force to prevent it the first
time in international relations
that any countries had threat-
ened to cut off another country's
water resources.
She had previously asserted
on a nationwide televisioh that
if the Arabs tried it, Israel
would defend itself "whenever
attacked and for whatever rea-
son." She said at the press con-

budget that he was considering
the desirability of creation of a
special ministry for science and
research.
He reviewed the wide range
of activities underway in such
research in Israel and stressed
the need for more research and
for continuous planning for ex-
pansion in the field. He also
reviewed the progress achieved
in developing arab villages.
He said income from tourism
last year constituted more than
8 per cent of Israel's earn-
ings from exports apart from
earnings by shipping and air-
lines operations.

ference that Israel hoped the
Arabs would give serious second
thoughts to their plans for using
force.
She reiterated Israel's de-
termination to maintain a quali-
tative, if nat quantitative, lead
in arms and Israel's stand in
favor of abolition of all forms
of arms throughout the region.
She said that the friendship be-
tween France and Israel re-
mained as good as ever despite
French moves toward good re-
lations with the Arabs, and that
the Soviets remained as hostile
as ever.
Generally, she said, she had
found cordiality and under-
standing at all levels in
Britain for Israel. In her tele-
vision appearance she w a s
asked whether an effort to
enlist British government sup-
port for the Negev irrigation
project was one of the goals
of her visit. She replied she
thought the British did not
need any persuasion.
At both occasions, she stressed
that Israel's Jordan River tap
was within the allocation orig-
inally proposed by the late Eric
Johnston as an emissary of
President Eisenhower 10 years
ago, on the basis of_ which
Jordan has already drawn water
for its own irrigation needs.
