BONN (JTA) — The decennial
performance of the traditional Pas-
sion Play at Oberammergau, not
due for a repeat staging until 1970,
was reported here as causing im-
passioned disagreement in the Ba-
The mayor and the director of
the play, which relates the death

against the village council's refusal

State Dept. Defends Arms Sale
to Arabs on Case-by-Case Basis,
Blames USSR for the Buildup
WASHINGTON (JTA) — The
stand of the U.S. government on
the question of supplying American
arms to Israel- and the Arab states
was outlined by the State Depart-
ment Monday in reply to the joint
protest of 75 members of Congress
who deplored the Arab arms build-
up and asked consideration for Is-
rael's security needs.
The reply, written for the Secre-
tary of State, was addressed to the
dean of the House of Representa-
tives, Congressman Emanuel Cel-
lar, New York Democrat. It was
signed by Assistant Secretary of
THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS State Douglas MacArthur II.
Friday, February 18, 1966-17
It emphasized that "the continu-
ing state of tension in the Near
East results from the basic dispute
between Israel and her Arab neigh-
bors" and indicated that the
United States deemed it desirable
to continue providing arms on a
"case-by-case" basis to the Arab
states and Israel.
"The best course for us would
be to maintain the lowest level
of armaments possible, but this
is not something we alone can
do," the letter stated. "To
achieve this would require a com-
mon approach by all the states
capable of supplying arms to
the area. It would presuppose a
fundamental agreement on the
need to avoid an arms race in
the area as well as a situation in
which differences and tensions
among the arms-supplying na-
tions did not exist."
MacArthur pointed out that "in

Declaring that the arms sales
made to Israel and the Arab states
are "in support of our objectives of
maintaining friendly relations with
all the states of the area while
seeking to advance peace, progress,
and stability," the State Depart-
ment official added:
"We do not underestimate the
seriousness of any arms augmen-
tation and will use our influence
as we can see that the dangers
inherent in the military confron-
tation in the Near East are lim-
ited to the extent possible. To
this end, we will continue our ef-
forts to assist in resolving the
basic differences which divide
the Arab states and Israel."
Rep. Thomas M. Rees, California
Democrat and co-signatory of the
letter to the State Department,
commented: "I do not think the
reply from the State Department
suggests any solution to the arms
race in the Middle East." Rep.
Rees, who recently assumed the
seat vacated by United Nations
envoy James Roosevelt, said the
State Department should recall
the recent warfare between India
and Pakistan. He said although
America asked that arms supplied
be used only for self-defense, "in-
structions were ignored and we
had fighting between two nations
using American supplied equip-
ment in a border dispute."
In a communication to constitu-
ents, Rep. Rees went on to stress
that America should not supply
arms to nations like the Arab states
"whose open policy is to make war
with another nation." He said he
hoped the Sate Department would
find "a solution more profound
than by trying to outdo the Soviet
Union in supplying military hard-
ware to nations of the world."
