When Arabs Greeted Israeli Soldiers:
`Poor Devils Thougl it We Were Iraqi

At least once during the Six-Day
War the Arabs welcomed the
Israeli army with open arms. It
was more out of confusion than
love, however, writes the son of
Detroiters Mr. and Mrs. Fred
Growe of Breckenridge Ave., Fern-
Dan Gilead, 46, of Kibutz Ha-
sorea, wrote of his experiences as
an anti-aircraft officer of the re-
gional command:
"When our tanks broke into the
city of Nablus,, which is a keystone
of the whole of the western bank,
Jordan, the whole populace was
out to a man, waving flags and
throwing flowers to our troops.
"When our men started to dis-
arm the male population and sol-
diers, they met with reluctant
compliance, .which gave way to
stupefaction, and in no time the
cheering mob disappeared as if
by magic.

"The poor devils thought our
army was a much publicized
Iraqi relief force. We just came
in by the wrong gate, from the
east instead of from the west,
where Arab Legionnaires were
still peering intently over battle-
ments when they were roughly
taken by the s c r u f f of their
kefiyes and sent back without
further ado into POW corrals.

"The Iraqis, by the way, very
obligingly left every tank, vehicle
and rifle all in neat order the
moment our f or c es came into
binocular range and could be iden-
tified as such and scrambled for
the far banks of the much be-sung
River Jordan."
Gilead noted that when he went
into Syria to assess captured anti-
aircraft equipment and initiate its
removal, he found a "well-nigh
staggering amount of material,

guns, trucks, tanks and ammuni-
tion. . . . It is almost inconceiv-
able what a poor and underdevel-
oped country like Syria actually
wanted to do with this fantastic
amount of war material, which
was enough to sustain a major
power for a very long time. Well,
if anything, the Syrians are con-
scientious stackers of goods, and
although our air force left very
little intact that was above ground,
there are still vast quantities of
goods neatly tucked away in bomb-
proof shelters.
"The cost of all this, which must
approach the billion mark, would
easily have paid to convert all
the subpoverty hovels, that go for
villages in that part of the coun-
try, into garden cities".

Latvian Jewish Druggist
Sought by Son in Midwest

Abrams Tuvje Zeba, a Latvian
Jewish pharmacist whose last
known whereabouts were in Swe-
den, is sought by his son, Indikis
Ekis of Omaha.
Zeba, son of Herman and Lyndia
Zeba of Ventspili, Latvia, did work
In his own drug stores in Klostere
and Aizpute. He escaped from Lat-
via to Sweden in June 1941, and
then disappeared.
Ekis hopes that some Latvian I
Jews who migrated to this coun-
try may know of his father's
whereabouts, although Zeba may
have changed his name before
leaving Sweden. Ekis said it is be-
lieved that his father entered the
United States with help from the
Quakers, not from United HIAS

MONTREAL (JTA) — Canadian
Jewry was on the verge of reach-
ing its $25,000,000 goal for the
Israel Emergency Fund this week

tributions past the $24,500,00 mark.
