W. German, Argentinian Anti-Semitic
Occurrences Cause Growing Concern

New Trial, Right to Attorney
Granted to Arab Under Death
Sentence; Gaza Escapees Freed

TEL AVIV (JTA)—An Israeli military appeal court or-
dered a new trial Sunday night for Mohammed Hijazi, the
Arab El Fatah infiltrator who was sentenced to death earlier
this month by a lower military -court for shooting at an
Israeli patrol. Hijazi was captured. in January this year while
he was on a raid into Israel. He was tried before a three-man
military court.
The new trial was ordered in response to Hijazi's law-
yer's claim that he was not given sufficient time to secure a
foreign lawyer. The defense counsel, Avigdor Michali, was
selected by the Tel Aviv Bar Association at the request of the
military authorities. The appeal court gave Hijazi three
months to secure a Jordanian lawyer or one from any Arab
or other country to defend him. If Hijazi fails to get an Arab
or other foreign lawyer within the three months, an Israeli
lawyer will again be appointed for him.

Two groups of Arabs from Egypt's Gaza Strip, captured
in Israeli waters, who said they were seeking refuge in Leb-
- anon, were en route to that Arab country after being re-
Six were Arab youths who said they left the Gaza
Strip by boat two weeks ago. They were detained while try-
ing to enter Jaffa harbor. They told Israeli police that life
in the Gaza Strip was hard and that they were afraid they
would be forced to join the new El Fatah commando group
recently organized-for Syria for infiltration attacks on Israeli
settlements. A police boat towed them out of Israeli terri-
torital waters so they could continue their journey to Leb-
The other group was made up of 10 fishermen who were
arrested when their boat went aground on a reef near a kib-
butz. They were allowed to continue to Lebanon after claim-
ing they also were refugees from the Gaza Strip.

West German and Argentinian Nazi groups were roundly condemned
this week by heads of the respective countries, and the revival of anti-Semitic
activities in both countries brought forth strong protests. But in both coun-
tries the Anti-Semitic groups remain active and there is deep concern in Jewish
ranks over the consequences. While the vandals in Bamberg and other Ger-
man centers and in Buenos Aires are believed to form very small units, their
threats are taken seriously, and need is felt for increased police protection.

BONN (JTA)—West German Chancellor Ludwig Erhard joined other Christian Dem-
ocratic Party leaders in Bamberg Sunday in condemning the recent spate of anti-Semitic
vandalism which swept this Bavarian town • and other German cities.
Addressing a mass rally of 10,000 members of the Catholic laymen's organization
here, Dr. Erhard said that the desecration of Bamberg's ancient Jewish cemetery with
swastikas and Nazi slogans had caused widespread indignation. He said his government
had given a reply to anti-Semitism by establishing diplomatic relations with Israel.
In another address at the rally, Bavarian Minister President Alfons Goppel said that

Ben-Gurion Defies ishkoll. With His Own Slate

Special to The Jewish News
TEL AVIV—Within hours after Prime Minister Levi Eshkol had announced that the split in
the Mapai Party "has been averted and logic prevailed after all," former Premier David Ben-Gurion
announced on Tuesday that he was breaking away from the party he helped create 35 years ago and
that he will offer a slate of his own candidates in the November general election.
The Lavon affair and Ben-Gurion's opposition to a combined Mapai-Ahdut Avodah campaign
ticket played their roles in the rift. There were other factors, the personal ones that had developed,
Ben-Gurion's opposition to the reinterment of Vladimir Jabotinsky in Israel and other issues.
Prior to Ben-Gurion's announcement of the formation of his own election slate, one of his sup-
porters, Moshe Dayan, former minister of agriculture, said he did not feel a Mapai split was justified
by the -Ben-Gurion-Eshkol controversy and that difficulties should be ironed out within rather than
outside the Mapai. But Joseph Almogi and Shimon Peres, who resigned from the Eshkol cabinet, re-
main among Ben-Gurion's staunchest supporters.
Ben-Gurion's decision to have an independent list of candidates was reached after a four-hour
meeting in his Tel Aviv residence on Tuesday. Ben-Gurion said "whoever wants to join us is welcome"
and that "we are the real Mapai and the others are not Mapai but alignment." The reference was to
the inclusion of Ahdut Avodah in the Eshkol alignment. Ben-Gurion supporters were asked not to
turn in their membership cards to Mapai. But Eshkol's backers said that those backing the independent
list would find themselves "outside the party."
Ben-Gurion will issue a ten-point program calling for a change in the electoral system, develop-
ment of industry, increase of the Negev and Galilee populations and raising of the living standards of
Israel's backward population groups.

ederation Gives $1,537,741 to Local Agencies

An unprecedented record sum exceeding $1,500,000 was earmarked Monday night by the board of governors
of the Jewish Welfare Federation to assure the continuing service and programs of some 20 local beneficiaries of the
1965 Allied Jewish Campaign.
The 1965 appeal, the most successful since 1957, will provide $1,537,741 for local operating needs this year in
accordance with the categorical distribution authorized by the Pre-Campaign Conference held last winter. The confer-
ence was headed by Paul Zuckerman, vice president of Federation.
The allocations will enable Detroit's Jewish health and welfare agencies, schools and community relations
programs to continue in 1965-66 the high level of communal service which has received national recognition for
excellence. In addition, Hyman Safran, Federation president, reported that some degree of program growth and devel-
opment also will be possible. He pointed out that, as • an example of such increased service, the new Borman unit of the
JeWish Home for Aged, now under construction at Seven Mile Road and Sunderland, will be opened later in the year.
The JHA budget has been increased to provide the necessary deficit appropriations to cover rising costs and added
Enriched programing will be possible this year in several Federation-supported agencies. The Jewish Com-
mlu ► ity Center will be able to concentrate additional attention in its cultural activities and to offer a greater number
of teen-age and youth programs in the Ten Mile Road facility. The Jewish schools under Federation's aegis will be
providing Jewish education for more than 3,500 boys and girls in the coming school year. The new budget makes it
pOssible for the United Hebrew Schools to supplement its staff by engaging an assistant superintendent and program
consultants in the areas of Hebrew-oriented dramatics, and arts and crafts. It is expected that UHS expansion will
benefit the affiliated schools of the community's central education agency:
More programing in community relations has been authorized through an additional grant for the Jewish
Community Council. The Jewish Family and Children's Service received a larger allocation in partial relief of a re-
