Israel Hopes to Overcome
Independence Day Boycott

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

JERUSALEM — The Israel For-
eign Minis try was reported
Wednesday to be considering the
possibility of dealing with an ex-
pected boycott of the annual Inde-
pendence Day parade by many
foreign governments through the
device of not issuing invitations to
them. The parade will be held here
on May 15.
Another approach reportedly
being mulled was that of issuing
invitations only to those diplomats
stationed in the capital. The Brit-
ish embassy has already an-
nounced that Ambassador Michael
Haddow will not attend and it was
generally believed that the United
States, France, the Soviet Union
and the East European bloc coun-
tries will follow suit,
Observers here noted that the
foreign governments apparently
were ignoring the fact that arma-
ments scheduled for display in
the parade will be in accordance
with the limitations specified in
the Israeli-Jordanian Mixed Ar-
mistice agreement. Israel informed
the United Nations Truce Super-
vision Organization headquarters
two weeks ago about the troops
and arms for the parade in detail.
