Rightists Learn Nothing; Haters Blast Israel

NEW YORK—Hypocrisy of ex-
tremists at both ends of the spec-
trum has nowhere been more
evident than in their reactions to
the crisis in the Middle East,
Nathan Perlmutter, director of the
American Jewish Committee's of-
fice of domestic affairs, said, com-
menting on a survey of extremist
statements on the Middle East
issue. He pointed out that hate
publications, traditionally anti-
Communist, had been trapped by
their fierce anti-Semitism and
hatred of Israel into denying Rus-
sian support of the Arabs.
On the left, he noted, the Com-
munists, who have long termed
themselves as champions of pro-
gress, have placed themselves in
the position of supporting regres-
sive Arab countries against the
mockrate social democracy of Is-
The survey was compiled by
Milton Ellerin, director of the AJC
trends analyses division.
The anti-Semitic hate publica-
tions, which have always pictured
themselves as vigorous opponents
of Communism, the report dis-
closes, have denied that Commun-
ist Russia has been supporting the
Arabs. These publications have
termed this a "giant hoax" that is
being perpetrated upon the Ameri-
can people as part of a Zionist-
Communist conspiracy.
Typical of this, the report shows,
is the comment of Edward Fields
in the Thunderbolt, who suggests
in a recent issue that the Ameri-
can people are "being fooled into
believing that '7ommunist Russia
is supporting the Arabs in their
confrontation with Israel." The
article "assumes" that the Soviet
government is aiding Israel, and

that "the clever trick that they
have perpetrated is to make it ap-
pear as if by fighting for Israel,
Americans are fighting against
Communism. Just the opposite is

Argentine Jews Proclaim
1967 'Emergency Year'

extraordinary national assembly of
Argentine Jews, held here re-
cently, proclaimed 1967 as a
year of emergency and called for
concentration of all Argentine
Jewry's efforts,to give material and
other aid to the people of Israel.
Dr. Harry Swarsensky, Buenos
Aires editor, presided at the_con-
The three major Argentine Jew-
ish organizations, DAIA, the repre-
sentative body, the Federation of
Argentine Jewish Communities and
the Argentine Zionist Organization,
published a statement denouncing
charges of aggression against Israel
made to the United Nations Gen-
eral Assembly by Premier Alexei
Kosygin of the Soviet Union.
The statement noted that while
the Soviet Union had condemned
Israel as the "aggressor," it was
the Soviet Union which had sup-
plied billions of dollars in arms to
the Arab world. The statement
called for direct Arab-Israeli nego-
tiations leading to "a fruitful and
durable peace in the Middle East."

The longest novel ever published
is Marcel Proust's "A la Recherche
du Temps Perdu," published in 15
volumes between 1913 and 1926. In
its English translation, it contains
1.307,000 words.

special report to his Christian Na-
tionalist Crusade followers, insists
that "the mind-washers will tell
America that we must enthrone
the Jews in Israel in order to re-
sist Communism among the Arabs.
This is another big lie akin to the
one they told when they said that
6,000,000 Jews were killed in
World War II."
The extremists of the Far Left,
the survey shows, have been ex-
pounding the theme that Israel is
a tool of Western imperialists.
Deirdre Griswold, a leader of
Youth Against War and Fascism,
is quoted as having declared that
"Israel in fact is acting as a pawn
of Western interests. Our people
with their sympathies are for the
Arab revolution."
The report adds that Herbert
Aptheker, the leading theoretician
of the Communist Party, has been
critical of Israeli action in the cur-
rent crisis in similar terms.
The reactions of the Radical
Right press to the Middle East
situation, the survey indicates,
have been to utilize the situation
to attack American foreign policy.
