By LEO ROSTEN
Why did the Israelis fight so well?
Because they secretly hardened their muscles
by working as librarians. shoe clerks and theology
students. Nasser had been assured ihat Israel's
army consisted only of beatniks from Beersheba.
You could hardly expect him to recover from
shock when he discovered that 50-year-old Jews
were openly fighting on the side of Israel! This
was a flagrant violation on the side of Israel!
This was a flagrant violation of Egypt's treaty
with Russia. which clearly specifies that Israel's
armed forces should contain only arthritic men
The Israeli Army contains an unfair
number of waiters from Tel Aviv. Anyone who
has ever eaten in a Tel Aviv restaurant knows
that for fallen arches and hutzpa, Tel Aviv
waiters are unequaled anywhere in the world. It
was a brazen violation of the Geneva Rules of
Civilized Warfare to put guns into the hands of
Why did the Israelis get so worried just be-
cause Egypt grabbed the entrance to the Gulf of
Aqaba? Because "Aqaba" is the only word in
the English language that does not have a u after
the q. This upset the many Israelis who study
English in high school. Israel went to war in
order to capture the Gulf and put the u back
in its name. In this way, "Aqaba" could never
again be used as a trick question in high-school
Why did Israel bomb the Arab air forces?
Egypt. Syria and Jordan had announced that they
were about to destroy Israel, yet despite that, the
Israelis bombed Arab warplanes, which were
all peacefully on the ground and harming no
one. In addition, remember that the MIG planes
that Israel knocked out were Russian property,
since the Arabs had not paid for them. So Israel
was bombing planes that belonged to a neutral
power! How much sympathy can a nation expect
after it so callously damages other people's
Why did Israel attack Arab airfields from a
completely unexpected direction? That was typi-
cal of Israel's treachery. They never told the
Arabs what time they were going to attack, which
is what any civilized nation on the verge of being
destroyed does. Before the Allies landed on the
coast of North Africa during the last war, Gen-
eral Eisenhower telephoned Hitler and Mussolini
to tell them when we were arriving, so that it
could be an open, fair fight. We did the same
thing before invading Normandy: President
Roosevelt personally told Hitler where our troops
would land so that the Nazis would not be taken
by surprise. The Israelis know all this, but they
are dirty fighters. After all, Russia, India and
France had led the Arabs to believe that they
would be allowed to destroy the Israelis before
the Israelis had a chance to throw any sneak
Who started the actual shooting? Israel. The
only thing Egypt, Syria and Jordan did was to
place loaded pistols against Israel's head from
three sides, peacefully announcing their intention
to "annihilate," "exterminate," and "push Israel
into the sea." But did they do this? No! Egypt.
Syria and Jordan were very careful not to
exterminate Israel. They did not even push it
into the sea. Even the Israelis now admit this.
What should Israel have done? Israel should
have follewed the courageous example of U
Thant and lain down before the Arabs; then the
peace-loving tanks of Egypt, Jordan and Syria
could have driven right over the Israelis, and
there would have been no war.
Is it true that Israel broadcast an intercepted
conversation between Nasser and Hussein. in
which these two statesmen decided to say the
U.S. and England had attacked them? Yes! And
this shows the kind of people Nasser and Hussein
had to deal with—people who listen in on other
people's private telephone conversations. which
is against the regulations of the FCC.
How explain the fact that Israel, which has a
population of under three million, defeated
enemies with a total population of over 100
million? This is a dirty lie. It is Israel that has a
population of 110 million. The total population of
the 14 Arab countries that bravely allied against
Israel is 739, and that includes chiropodists.
Israel deliberately fooled Nasser into thinking it
is a small nation by cleverly using proofreaders
as spies; these unprincipled traitors slipped fake
population figures into all of the newspapers and
almanacs in the world.
What have the Arab nations done to try to get
along with Israel? For 19 years, the Arabs peace-
fully refused to recognize Israel; they patiently
boycotted all her goods; they pacifically forbade
trade and travel to or from that troublemaking
country; they created any number of helpful
border incidents that tried to teach the Israelis to
behave nicely and let law-abiding enemies walk
all over them.
Since 1956, the Egyptians have even closed
the Suez Canal to all shipping, under any flag, to
or from Israel. Ships might have carried war
materials such as sewing machines, mezuzas and
carbon paper. I don't know how much more the
Arabs could have been expected to do to. keep the
Israelis from provoking them.
Why did India support the Arabs? Because.
since 1946, India has received only $7,281,210,000
from the American Agency for International De-
velopment and the World Bank. We should quad-
ruple our gifts and loans to India in order to
keep it on the side of freedom.
Why 'did Israel fight on despite the censgre of
so many Arab and African countries? That was
Israel's greatest mistake. Any nation that ignores
the political judgement and military power of
states like Mauritania and Kuwait deserves to
pay for its stupidity.
What should be done with Egypt. Jordan and
Syria? Give them to the Indians. India could solve
all of the Arab countries' problems as easily as it
has solved its own.
What should be done about the Arab leaders
who have so long and so wisely led their peoples?
Nasser should replace U Thant in the UN. Then
Nasser would not have to ask U Thant's per-
mission the next time he wants to slaughter Israel.
The fact that the Israelis have beaten Egypt
three times in 20 years shows how important it is
to prevent this from happening again. King
Hussein, whose army and economy depend on
American aid, could get a job in a circus, biting
the hands that feed him.
What does the astounding Israeli victory
prove? That God is liable to be on the side of
people who fight for their freedom, their honor.
their children and their lives—even if such people
are pig-headed enough to fight entirely alone.
