Israel's UN Delegation and Its Adversaries


JTA Correspondent at the UN
(Copyright, 1966, JTA, inc.)

the current session of the General
Assembly, Israel has a strong dele-
gation of 25 members, led by the
country's redoubtable Foreign Min-
ister, Abba Eban, who is one of
the oldest, most experienced diplo-
mats at the United Nations.
Working closely with Eban is the
delegation's permanent chairman,
Michael S. Comay, and this year's
vice-chairman, Gideon Raphael.
Raphael has been for years one
of the top professional diplomats
in Israel's Foreign Ministry. Right
now, he is the Foreign Ministry's
chief international trouble-shoot-
er, head of a task force appointed
by Eban to help re-examine and
re-evaluate Israel's entire foreign

This year's delegation includes,
among its five top men, Joseph

Tekoah and Gershon Avner. The

Tatter holds the ambassadorship in

Ottawa—the same spot in which
Comay had established himself
The president of the Assem-
bly this year is an old diplomatic
hand from Afghanistan, Abdul
Rahman Pazhwak. Afghanistan is
a Moslem state and does not rec-

ognize Israel. While the presi-
dent of the Assembly may be
expected to be fair to all meni-
mers, including Israel, the fact
is that the delegation from Af-
ghanistan has always voted here
with the Arabs on any issue
touching Israeli interests. There
is no reason to suppose that the
delegation representing the pres•
ident's home state will be any
friendlier to Israel than it has
ever been.
But the president of the Assem-
bly is only one member of the As-
sembly's steering committee. Sit-
ting on it also are a number of
vice-presidents and the chairmen
of seven standing committees. The
vice-presidents are elected on a
regional basis. Six had to be chosen
this year to represent Africa and
Asia. The fact that Israel is also
an Asian state was ignored. Repre-
senting the region in which Israel
is situated is an outright enemy—
Of the seven on the standing
committees, three are headed by
Arab chairman. These represent
respectively, Jordan, Morocco and
Thus we see that the Arabs and
their Moslem friends are riding
"high, wide and handsome" all
over the Assembly. Add to them


the influential Soviet bloc and you
can see readily that Israel does.
indeed, need the strong team
lined up for this year's Assembly
by Eban, Comay and Raphael.

Moroccan Jews Name New Grand Rabbi

Council of Moroccan Jewish Com-
munities, after considerable delay,
presented to the Moroccan Interior
Ministry the name of Rabbi
Mikhael Encaoua for the vacant
post of grand rabbi of Morocco.
The new grand rabbi is 61 and
a son of the late Grand Rabbi
Raphael Encaoua of Sale, a city
near Rabat.
After the departure of Grand
Rabbi Saul Danan as spiritual head
of the Moroccan Jewish commu-
nity, the interior ministry asked
the council to designate a suc-
cessor. Rabbi Encaoua had been
an assistant to Grand Rabbi Danan
and acted as vice president of
the Moroccan Supreme Rabbinical
Tribunal when that court was in
existence. Approval of the nomina-
tion by the interior ministry is
expected as a routine procedure.
Rabbi Simon Suisse, judge of
the Jewish community of Mazagan,

was named attorney for the king
in Mazagan by Justice Minister
Abdelhadi Boutaleb. Rabbi Suisse
will continue his functions as
rabbi and judge. The Mazagan
Jewish community which, prior
to Morocco's independence, had
2,400 Jews, now has 500 Jews.

Named as alternate Israeli dele-
gates were: Dr. Joel Barromi, dep-
uty permanent representative of

Israel City Dating Back to 2000 BCE
Found by Japanese Archaeologists

PARDESS HANA, Israel — The
remains of an ancient city dating
back to the middle Bronze Age,
some 2,000 years BCE, have been
uncovered by 10 Japanese scholars
of Tokyo University.
The team, headed by Prof. Kiy-
oshi Ohata, found the city in the
mound Tel Zeror, near Pardess
Hana in the Sharon Valley.
The city existed in the Israelite
period, but later declined until
disappeared during the Byzan-
tine period in the 3rd Century AD.
In the earliest period, it covered
an area of some 14 acres, but by
the time of the kings of Israel, its
walled citadel covered only two

finds. Remains from the period of
the reign of King David, in 10th
Century BC, include a citadel built
of clay bricks. A drinking horn in
the shape of a roaring lioness was
found in a cave of the Canaanite
The citadel was within sight of
the great ancient road, the Via
Maris, which linked the northern
countries and the southern coun-
tries of the biblical world.
Dark ashes mark the destruction
of the citadel at about 800 BCE.
Its renascence came some 300 years
later in the Persian period, which
has left evidence of a metal indus-
try and a farming community.

(What else would you do with them?)

For a long time now we've been talking about the great collection
of Florsheims we have at our Northland Men's Shoe Shop.

Now we'd like to tell you some of the things you'll find in that col-
lection. Consider, for example, Florsheim hand-sewn moccasins,
rugged brogues, plain toes, hand-stained leathers. (Not to mention
things like golf shoes, at one end of the collection, and patent leather
dress shoes at the other.) You'll also find that the price tags in the
collection start at just $19.95 (unless you're interested in Phillips
Florsheim Imperials, which start at $36.95).

So come to Phillips Northland Men's Shoe Shop and look at our
Florsheims . . . now that we've told you a lot of good things about
