LONDON — Yigal Allon, Is-
rael's labor minister and for-
mer chief of staff, declared
here Tuesday that if ."the
Arabs attack us again the re-
sult will be similar to that of
1948 and 1956." Israel defeated
the combined Arab armies in
the 1948 War of Liberation and
Egypt in the 1956 Suez Cam-
Speaking at the national
banquet of the Joint Palestine
Appeal (JPA), Gen. Allon also
warned President Nasser of
Egypt that "The distance be-
tween Egypt and Israel is ex-
actly the same as that between
Israel and Egypt." He added that
"Israel is quite safe now."
J. Edward Sieff, chairman
of the banquet, told the
guests that in 1963 the JPA
raised 2,250,000 pounds (56,-
3 0 0 ,. 0 0 0 ) of its 3,000,000-
pound ($8.4 million) goal. He
said the target for 1964 was
again 3,000,000 pounds and
that the JPA hoped to
achieve it.
Gen. Allon said Israel was
pursuing three main purposes

"It has become crystal-clear to me that the sur-
vival of Jewish life in our country — and by Jewish
life I mean the synagogue, Israel. Federation and its
116 institutions, non-affiliated charitable endeavors and
other affairs of Jewish life — rests on knowing what
Judaism is. Only the day school can supply that vital
need. . . ."
