b query the absence of a single Israeli from the list of 19 session panel
U.S. government sources at the outset revealed that the State De-
partment was careful not to put Israelis in charge of panels, although the
Israelis were acknowledged to be highly qualified, because the Arabs
threatened not to sit in such meetings. Eleven nations, the United Na-

NEW YORK (JTA) — Pope Paul VI, addressing representatives of all major faiths
at the Holy Family Church here Monday, voiced a warm plea for the participation of
all peoples of all religions in the world's quest for peace. Nearly 50 representatives
of organizations in the United States including leaders of all three

zations of the United Nations. The work of peace is not restricted
to one 'religious belief, it is the work and duty of every human person regardless of his
religious conviction. Men are brothers, God is their father, and their father wills that
they live in peace with one another as brothers should.
"For our part, we thank you for the cordial friendship which you have accorded
our observers and we promise our collaboration insofar as we can join in your studies,
your programs and your activities and to this we join our prayers for the success of
your efforts and for God's choicest blessings on your noble endeavors."
Responding on behalf of the American Jewish community, Klutznick told the Pope:

we greet you on behalf of the Jewish organizations and agencies related to the work
