JERUSALEM — Israel's foreign
ministry has accepted Alexander
Toeroek as counsel of the West
German embassy in Jerusalem,
ministry sources indicated Wednes-
day.- The diplomat whom press re-
ports have linked with the Nazi
era, has been cleared a second
time by the foreign ministry.
Israel police meanwhile set up a
24-hour watch on the Sheraton
Hotel in Tel Aviv, where three
West German officials, the van-
guard of the West German em-
bassy staff are now staying. The
officials entered the hotel Wednes-
day. Dr. Toeroek, who was due to
arrive Wednesday, put off his
arrival for a few days and is now
expected to arrive today.
In Bonn, the West German
foreign ministry denied Wednesday
that Dr. Toeroek had been con-
cerned with the Nazi plans for the
deportation of Hungarian Jews to
the death camps.

The ministry confirmed the
Jerusalem reports that the form-
er Hungarian diplomat, now a
naturalized German citizen, had
served in Hungary's Berlin em-
bassy between December 1944
and May 1945. That was precisely
the period during which the Nazis
were deporting Jews from Hun-
gary. The Ministry said, however,
he had no relationships "formally
or intellectually" with the Nazi
party or with the Hungarian
Fascist Party.
Die Welt, influential Hamburg

daily newspaper, said Wednesday
that although it was wrong to con-
nect with the Nazi plans for depor-
tation of Jews every diplomat who
had served in Berlin during the
regime of Admiral Horthy, leader
of the Hungarian government, "it
is not surprising that many Israelis,
particularly those from Hungary
have the greatest mistrust for a
man who was occupied with state
business at a time when Jews were
fighting for their lives.
("Emotions," stated the news-
paper, "are also a factor. Perhaps
Bonn could have paid more atten-
tion to this in choosing the staff
for the Tel Aviv embassy.")
Formal acceptance of his ap-
pointment now awaits approval by
Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel's foreign
The foreign ministry has decided
that the Israel embassy in West
Germany will be set up in Bonn.
Consular commercial departments
will be set in Cologne.
Meanwhile, another demonstra-
tion was staged here, demanding
that the Israel government recon-
sider its acceptance of Dr. Rolf
Pauls as Germany's ambassador
designate. Participating in the
demonstration were members of
organizations composed of former
partisans, ghetto fighters, concen-
tration camp inmates and survivors
injured by the Nazis. Dr. Pauls is
scheduled to arrive next Wednes-
"We who defended the honor of
our people," the organizers of the
joint demonstration told the Israel
government, "speaking in the
name of 6,000,000 who died in the
holocaust, will never accept this
desecration of Israel's honor."
The principal objection to Dr.
Pauls is due to the fact that he

4 Israelis Hurt as Jeep
Hits Mine in Corridor

TEL AVIV — Four members of
the Israel border police were in-
jured, one seriously, when the jeep
in which they were making a rou-
tine border patrol Tuesday night
in the Jerusalem Corridor stuck a
mine which exploded.
The mine was believed to have
been planted by members of the
El Fatah terrorist organization, cur-
rently believed to be operating
from Jordnian territory. The mine
had been placed about a half
mile from the Jordanian border.
United Nations observers began an
investigation, followin a complaint

ment but as an old camp com-
Rev. Gruber's appeals against
t h e demonstrations illustrated
growing West German concern
about the kind of reception Dr.
Pauls may receive in Tel Aviv
when he arrives there to take up
his post.

The Rev. Heinrich Grueber,
the Lutheran clergyman noted
for his anti-Nazi activities dur-
ing the war, and the only Ger-
man called by the Israeli prose-
cution to testify at the trial of
the late Adolf Eichmann, ap-
pealed for a cessation of the
demonstrations that have been
staged in Israel against the ac-
ceptance of Dr. Pauls.

In Berlin, Dr. Pauls paid a
visit to leaders of the Jewish
community, which is the largest
in any of the West German
cities. He also attended services
in the synagogue there.

In a letter to, Israel's foreign
minister, Golda Meir, Rev. Grueber
appealed to her to try to - see to
it that "the demonstrations cease,
since they are prejudicing Israel's
own interests and the work of
Israel's friends in Germany."
At the same time, the 73-year-
old clergyman, whom the Nazis de-
ported to a concentration camp for
having rescued Jewish children,
sent a similar appeal to the Asso-
ciation of Former Concentration
Camp Inmates in Israel. He of-
fered to come to Israel "to discuss


During the services, Rabbi Dr.
Lehrman, spiritual leader of the
congregation, praised Dr. Pauls as
"the spokesman for a new genera-
tion of Germans, who wishes to
establish a better and more pro-
gressive era."
The congregation included Dr.
Pauls in a special prayer, lauding
him as "a true ambassador of good
will and atonement."

on a trip to Europe in 1956, and he
has offered the patented invention
to U.S. firms.
It would be used primarily in
such cities as New York, Chicago,
London and Paris. Raz comes from
Safed, a town whose telephone
numbers barely cover three pages

AMMAN, Jordan—A state secur-

week passed a death sentence on
two soldiers and a sentence of life
imprisonment on a junior officer
charged with high treason, es-
pionage and taking up arms in
enemy ranks against Jordan.
The three men admitted co-
operating with an Israeli military
intelligence officer.
