Eshkol Appointment Upsets Politicians

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish

JERUSALEM — Premier Levi
Eshkol's surprise appointment of
Isser Harel, former Israeli intel-
ligence chief, as his general advisor
evoked a political storm in Israel
The appointment of Harel, who
led Israel's search for Nazi killer
Adolf Eichmann and who was
ousted two years ago as chief of
Israel's secret security services in
a dispute with then-Premier David
Ben-Gurion, brought him into the
public eye for the first time. Pub-
lication of his name as security
chief had been officially forbidden.
In the debate over handling the
problem of West German scientists
working on advanced weapons sys-
tems for Egypt, Ben-Gurion fa-
vored minimal protests to avoid

embarrassing the West German re-
gime with which he was negotiating
for arms for Israel. Harel favored
vigorous measures, including a
press campaign.
Harel was forced out after an Is-
raeli government employe was ar-
rested in Switzerland on charges
of threatening the daughter of
one of the West German scien-
The opposition parties, including
Ben-Gurion's Independent Israel
Workers List, charged that the ap-
pointment amounted to dragging
Israel's intelligence affairs into
party politics. Harel, as the pre-
mier's general adviser, will over-
see both military and nonmilitary
intelligence. It was reported that
after the election, if Premier Esh-
kol wins, he will be named direc-
tor general of the premier's office.

Landing of First Jews
in America Is Marked

Jacob K. Javits, New York Repub-
lican, called on American Jews
to play a greater role in the war
on poverty. Addressing a gathering
marking the landing of the first
Jews in America, 311 years ago,
Sen. Javits said that "Jews, who
have - exhibited a kind of genius
in dealing with social welfare
problems among their co-religion-
ists, must now turn this talent
toward aiding other groups among
the disadvantaged."
Earlier, in a ceremony at Bat-
tery Park, a wreath was laid be-
fore a memorial to the 23 original
Jewish settlers who landed in what
was then New Amsterdam from
Brazil in September 1654.
