Hints Questioning
Jewish 'Loyalty'
Arise in S. Africa



JOHANNESBURG (JTA) - The
local Jewish newspapers editorial-
ly endorsed the statement issued
by the South African Jewish Board
of Deputies criticizing recent com-
ments in some Afrikaans news-
papers on the position of the Jew
in South African politics, and in
particular an article by Dirk Rich-
ard, editor of the pro-government
weekly, "Dagbreek," saying that
many Afrikaners were suspicious
of where the Jews stood political-
ly, and whether, if the need arose,
they could be relied upon to defend
the country "to the last ditch." -
An appeal to all political parties
to avoid dragging the Jewish com-
munity into the campaign for
South Africa's next general elec-
tion, due early next year, was
issued by the board of deputies.
The appeal was decided upon by
deputies attending the board's
monthly meeting in Johannesburg,
following the comment in some
newspapers on the Jew in the
political scene.
The board of deputies statement
deplored that there are again
tendencies to drag "the Jews" into
the political arena and revive
suspicions "which we had hoped
had long been laid to rest."
Both the "Zionist Record" and
the "Southern African Jewish
Times" agreed with Richard that
once such suspicion exists, it is
better that it be brought into the
open and be frankly discussed. The
"Zionist Record" says "we are
loath to believe that Richard, and
those whose views he reflects, are
prepared to endorse such reac-
tionary and dangerous doctrines.
His thesis has evoked deep resent-
ment in Jewish circles. It calls into
question the status of Jews as citi-
zens, and their loyalty to the Re-
public, and also basic democratic
principles which South Africa has
hitherto professed.
"While maintaining their group
identity and institutions, Jews are,
and wish to be accepted as, full
South African citizens, integrated
into all aspects of South African
life," the Zionist organ stresses.
"South African Jewry has never
acted as a political entity. On the
contrary, individual Jewish citizens
have zealously asserted their right
to think and act independently in
political matters, and they have,
in fact, been found among the sup-
porters of all the political parties."
The Jewish community had proved
its loyalty to South Africa, the
paper points out.
The "Southern African Jewish
Times" say that when the present
government came to power in 1948,
its first Premier, Dr. D. F. Malan,
"stated as a plank of policy that
Jews were full and equal citizens
of South Africa" and this assur-
ance had been reaffirmed by J.
G. Strijdom and Dr. H. F. Verwoerd
when they successively attained
the premiership. "Each accepted
that, as full and equal citizens of
South Africa, Jews followed their
individual predilections in politics,
and there was no such thing as a
`Jewish group' attitude. Nor did
they see any incompatibility be-
tween this position and the exist-
ence of a Jewish community bound
together by ties of Jewish religion,
Jewish culture and Jewish history.
Through all the ups and downs
which South Africa has undergone,
including civil revolt and two
world wars, there has never been
any question that when there was
need to defend the country, its
Jewish citizens were in it with all
other citizens -- even to the last
ditch, as many South African Jews
proved with their lives."

U.S. Advised to Prevent
Development of Nuclear
Weapons in Middle East

WASHINGTON (JTA)-Senator
Robert F. Kennedy, New York
Democrat, said in the Senate Oct.
13, that action by the United States
in the Arab-Israel conflict is re-
quired if the development of nu-
clear weapons in the Middle East
is to be prevented.
"Israel," he told the Senate,
"feels threatened by her larger
neighbors; the continuance of her
pledge not to be the first to intro-
duce nuclear weapons into the Mid-
dle East may depend on the con-
tinued firm opposition of the
United States - to any aggression in
that area." He suggested that other
nations might assist American ef-
forts to - prevent proliferation. He
pointed out that "the nations of
the Mahgreb might exercise their
considerable influence against nu-
clear weaponry in the Middle
East."
