Hussein on Anti-Zionist Mission in U.S.

(Continued from Page 1)
Thus, the U. S. aim for inter-
national control over atomic re-
search is creating a new problem
for Israel. The Israelis approve of
such international inspections in
principle. but they object to im-
mediate implementation because
of a fear of favoritism for the
Arabs. The reason for it is ob-
vious. Israel is not represented on
the board of the International
Atomic Energy Agency. The Middle
: Eastern seat on this agency has
gone to an Arab nation, and under
conditions of such lack of repre-
sentation there is always an in-
evitable prejudice against Israel.
Thus, the dangers to Israel con-
tinue, and every Israeli attempt to
counter the threats to the coun-
try's existence either is misin-
terpreted as an Israel aggressive
Move or it is charged against Israel
under claims of non-cooperation,
without regard to the overwhelming
flow of military supplies to the
Arabs from Communist sources.
These are the conditions that
have made the Hussein visit here
so damaging to the peace of the
Middle East.
A question that deserves seri-
ous international consideration is
whether Hussein, now a bosom pal
of Nasser. approves of the latter's
invasion of Yemen and the con-
tinuing stream of his troops into
that country. Nasser had promised
the United States that he would
withdraw his troops from Yemen,
yet his forces there continue to

warning against the system they
themselves sought to perpetuate.

Warnings Against Nasser's
Threats Made in Senate

As an indication that Hussein's
speeches were seen in their true
light, as outbursts heard for home
consumption, many members of
both Houses of Congress delivered
strong protests against the threats
to Israel's existence and in con-
demnation of Nasser's aggressive
Senator Ernest Gruening of Alas-
ka was especially outspoken in his
address in the Senate on Monday
when he demanded action by our
government to avert a crisis that
might lead to Israel's destruction.
He stated bluntly that we will share
in guilt if Israel is harmed by the
Arabs and he warned that if Nas-
ser is armed continually Israel
could be destroyed in a matter of
hours. Then, he said, all that could
be expectetd is a mere protest.
At the National Foreign Policy
Conference for Editors and Broad-
casters sponsored by the State De
partment on Monday and Tuesday,
the Israel-Arab issue was injected
in the discussions. A State Depart-
ment spokesman asserted that the
Communists are trying to exploit
