Bavarian Neo-Nazi Triumph
Arouses Worldwide Concern

Expressing serious concern over the neo-Nan elec-
toral triumphs in West Germany, in two elections, includ-
ing Sunday's in Bavaria, protests have been organized
in many cities in condemnation of the re-emergence of
the extreme rightist National Democratic Party.
Protest meetings in Israel, editorial comments in
newspapers in all democratic countries, condemnations
by Jewish and other anti-Nazi groups, were the spontane-
ous assertions of consternation over the new development.
There is equal concern among the liberal forces in
Germany, and while some believe that the election results
merely indicate the existence of a fractional extremely
rightist element, there is fear lest the nen-Nazi movement
should grow to uncontrolled proportions.

among the developments that have added to the aggravation of the Middle East tensions. There is
an increasing fear in Israel of a possible resurgence of aggressive acts which stemmed in recent

resolution censuring Israel. Jordan demands sanctions and the United States reportedly is blocking

New Security Fence Erected at Site of Guerrilla Attacks

Direct JTA Teletype Wires to The Jewish News

JERUSALEM—Israeli officials said Tuesday that sections of the Tel Aviv to Jerusalem railway
line near the Jordanian border will be sealed off by a high barbed wire fence in a program to
devise barriers against Arab guerrilla infiltrators.
The new security fence will first be erected near the Batir village, the site of the most recent
guerrilla attack on the railway. On that occasion a train was partly derailed when it hit explosives
planted on the tracks. The fence will be built on both sides of the line in vulnerable areas. Other
precautionary measures also will be taken.
At the same time Israeli railways announced cancelation of evening trains to and from Jerusa-
lem, affecting four runs — Jerusalem-Tel Aviv, Jerusalem-Haifa, Haifa-Jerusalem and Tel Aviv-
Jerusalem. No xplanation was given for the cance llation but it was assumed security was the reason.
