Lebanon Arrests

Anti-Israel Plot

'Between You
. . and Me'

(Copyright, 1966, JTA, Inc.)

THE ISRAEL SCENE: The voices in Israel that plead for seeking
more accommodation with Russia will be more powerful now that the
left-wing Mapam Party has joined the Israeli Cabinet . . . However,
it is questionable whether Abba Eban, the new Foreign Minister, will
follow a policy different from the one followed by Golda Meir, who
retired from the post . . . A good deal depends, of course, on whether
Moscow will soften its attitude toward Israel . . . Already Eban
indicated that he would like to see Moscow join the Anglo-American-
French pact guaranteeing Israel's borders . . . Prime Minister
Levi Eshkol has in recent years based his administration on three
stalwart supporters: Foreign Minister Golda Meir, Minister of Educa-
tion Zalman Aranne, and Finance Minister Pinhas Sapir. . . The
latter two have remained in their posts in the new Cabinet . . . Before
the formation of the new Cabinet, Sapir sprang a surprise on the
country by announcing that he refused to return to the Finance
Ministry . . . However, Eshkol and others would not hear of this, nor
would the non-Mapai business community, whose favorite son Sapir
has been for many years . . . Strong pressure was put on Sapir, who
finally agreed to remain in the new Cabinet on condition that he
would be given a free hand to carry out his economic policies . . . He
wants to curb inflation by cutting off virtually automatic wage increases
that have followed in the wake of every rise in the living index . .
Most economists agree with his basic premise that Israel's industrial
efficiency is kept down, and costs are driven up by labor's "right"
to wage hikes with every rise in living cost . . . The left-wing is nat-
urally opposed to Sapir's demand, because it is committed to help
labor voters to protect labor's interests; come what may . . . The fight
to curb wage demands will therefore be fought by Sapir now, with
the backing of Premier Eshkol.

THE AMERICAN SCENE: The American Jewish Committee is
developing strong activity in anti-poverty projects . . . It has conducted
conferences of Jewish business leaders in a number of cities to promote
job-preparation training programs and job integration . . . Such con-
ferences were held in Washington, Cleveland, Miami, Milwaukee, Detroit
and other cities . . The AJCommittee has also promoted nonsectarian
conferences in Dallas, Atlanta and a number of other cities . . . These
conferences have already resulted in opening up a considerable number
of new employment opportunities for ethnic minorities . . . Work is
also being conducted by the AJCommittee with universities and colleges
in developing research and other materials related to special aspects
of the phenomenon poverty.

LONDON (JTA) — Two Pales-
tinian Arabs are under arrest in
a Lebanese prison to prevent their
participation in a commando raid
against Israel, it was reported
here Monday from Beirut.
The arrest of the Arabs was dis-
closed by a Lebanese Army spokes-
man who displayed the two pris-
oners to show that they were in
good health after the death of a
third prisoner, also arrested to
prevent his infiltrating into Is-
rael, gave rise to allegations that
the prisoners were tortured.
The Lebanese spokesman said
that the third prisoner, Jalal Kaa-
wash, died after jumping from a
window of an army headquarters
building. On hearing of the man's
death last week, Syrian and Pal-
estinian demonstrators in Damas-
cus hailed Kaawash as a "hero and
martyr" and denounced "traitors
and treason" in the Arab dispute
with Israel.
- Earlier, it was reported from
Amman, Jordan, that a number
of Palestinians have been arrest-
ed in Jordan as a result of the
sharp conflict between the Jor-
danian government and the Pal-
estine Liberation Organization.
The arrests followed two inci-
dents, one at Jericho and the
other at Hebron, both on the Jor-
dan River's western bank. The
first incident took place when Pal-
estinian crowds stormed a tent
set up in Jericho's main square
for King Hussein and his party,
who were to attend a festival. The
king left a few minutes before the
tent was stormed.
The incident occurred when the
Jordanian authorities confiscated
light arms from a car traveling
between Hebron and Jerusalem and
arrested four persons. Searching
further, they discovered two caches
of arms, one in Hebron and the
other in Arab-held Jerusalem.
Some reports said the arms be-
longed to an underground Pales-
tinian organization known as Ven-
Tension between the Jordan gov-
ernment and the Liberation Orga-
nization has been mounting steadi-
ly. Hussein says Ahmed Shukairy,
leader of the PLO, is trying to
undermine the unity of the Jor-
danian people and the army.
