Secret Documents Reveal Tactics
Against Efforts for Jewish State

(Continued from Page 1)
to blame pro-Zionist statements in
the United States for indirectly
encouraging "the more extreme
Zionist elements, such as the as-
sassins of Lord Moyne." Lord
Moyne, British minister of state in
the Middle East, was assassinated
in Cairo by the "Stern Gang" Nov.
5, 1944.
Murray sought to link the
"Stern Gang" (fighters for the
freedom of Israel) with the
Irgun Zvai Leumi, national mili-
tary organization, and to con-
vince the State Department that
these groups were not distinct
organizations "but rather are
two parts of one secret terroris-
tic organization."
According to Murray's memo :
randum, "Both of these groups are
made up of fanatical young Jews
who are completely unscrupulous."
Loy Henderson, U.S. minister in
Iraq in 1944, raised questions
about "internal political expedi-
ency" in opposing American sym-
pathy for Jewish aims. He com-
plained that the better educated
Arabs were asking whether it was
possible that American foreign
policy was shaped "to meet the
demands of private pressure
groups possessed of ample funds
and exercising extensive control
over American channels of infor-
mation."
Henderson conceded in a tele-
gram to the State Department
from Baghdad on Nov. 4, 1944, that
the "readers of these telegrams
are likely to feel that I am rabidly
anti-Zionist. I am merely endeavor-
ing truthfully to inform my gov-
ernment what results might be ex-
pected in this area from its es-
pousal of the Zionist cause."
A report from the U.S. mili-
tary attache in Beirut in 1944
was based on a conversation
with the assistant chief of the
British security mission for
Syria and Lebanon. It made a
point that Arab-Jewish difficul-
ties were caused by "the mis-

Kramer Sponsors
Resolution Against
Soviet Bigotry

State Rep. Albert A. Kramer,
who represents portions of the
cities of Oak Park and Southfield,
among others, was a co-sponsor of
the House-passed Concurrent Reso-
lution 33 memorializing Congress
to condemn Soviet discrimination
against religious minority groups.
The resolution referred to the
"singling out" of Jewish citizens
for extreme punishment by confis-
> eating synagogues, arresting reli-
gious teachers and by imposing un-
due restrctions in education, travel
and cultural activities. Copies of
the resolution were sent to Presi-
dent Johnson, the president of
the Senate, speaker of the House
and to each member of the Michi-
gan delegation to Congress.
Rep. Kramer stated, "This reso-
lution is one that has been long
laeeded and it has been overdue
. I further hope that by the
adoption of this resolution, which
this House has seen fit to adopt,
that the Soviet Union would be-
come aware of the deep-seated ex-
pression of statewide revulsion at
the continuation of these acts."

S. Africa Paper Retracts
Anti-Jewish Article

JOHANNESBURG (JTA) — A
leading South African newspaper,

"Die Vaderland," has retracted an
anti-Jewish article reprinted in
its columns from the American
anti-Semitic publication " C o m -

mon Sense," which described as
"a great lie" the Jewish conten-
tion that Hitler was responsible
for the murder of 6,000,000 Jews.

taken Allied policy of overem-
phasizing Jewish aims."
One State Department memo-
randum openly reveals that the
State Department, in order to com-
bat Jewish hopes for Palestine,
sought to learn the nature of Brit-
ish conversations in London. One
State Department memorandum
openly revealed that the State De-
partment was deeply interested in
learning the nature and contents
of private talks between Dr.
Nahum Goldmann, Rabbi Israel
Goldstein and other Zionist lead-
ers in London with Dr. Chaim
Weizmann "and presumably with
high British officials."
President Roosevelt's 1944 mes-
sage to American Zionists sym-
pathizing with the Jewish situation
was protested by State Department
officials like Murray. He reported
that such pro-Jewish statements
helped create "a very serious prob-
lem for American interests" in the
Arab world.
The State Department, to justify
its opposition to Zionism, sought
to establish the extent of Soviet
anti-Zionist strategy in the Near
East. "If now the Soviet govern-
ment comes out opposing all Zion-
ist ambitions in Palestine, it will
place us in a greatly inferior posi-
tion to the British and Russians
in that area," said a memorandum
submitted to Undersecretary of
State Stettinius.
Speaking officially for the
State Department's Office of
Near Eastern Affairs, Murray
left no doubt as to his opposition
to endorsement of Jewish hopes
for a national refuge. He wrote

that "It is difficult to see how
recent developments can be
taken by the Arab countries as
showing anything but a lack of
goad faith and an intention on
the part of this government not
to carry out its previous commit-
ments when political expediency
dictates otherwise. Such an im-
pression, if not speedily and
completely counteracted, would
seriously prejudice our ability to
afford adequate protection to
American interests in the Near
East."
Henderson boldly warned that
"if the United States government
actually begins to take steps to im-
plement pre - election statements
supporting the Zionist cause, Arab
friendship for and trust in the
United States will change instantly
into a feeling of betrayal and into
a resentment which will render
further friendly relations impossi-
ble."
State Department maneuvers to
block pro-Zionist expressions by
Congress are also related.

Billboard Firms Trip Over Hebrew

All is not right in the sign-paint-
ing business. Or maybe someone
isn't thinking?
The word "hashowv" (think) has
blossomed out on billboards
throughout the city, but unfortun-
ately not all billboard workers
know Hebrew.
There is a sign over a store at
Campus Martius which bears the
word "think" in four languages,
including Hebrew. The letters het,
sheein and vawv are all right, but
the last letter, bet, is malformed:

Not long ago, a passerby report-
ed seeing a billboard on East
Jefferson which carried the
"Hashowv" upside down. It was
the passerby's theory that the sign
painter merely was reading his
instructions upside down.

it lacks the required tail, and
comes out looking like a koff.

Dr. MILTON R. KONVITZ,
professor of industrial and labor
relations at Cornell University,
was presented with the Yeshiva
University Mordecai Ben David
Award at the university's 34th
annual commencement exercises
on Tuesday.
