Mrs. Mortimer Jacobson, national president of Hadassah, is
shown receiving the keys to Hadassah Hospital atop Mt. Scopus, from
Menahem Scharfman—known as "The King of the Hill"—who repre-
sented Israel authorities. Scharfman had been in command of the

which is to be transformed into a Hadassah Rehabilitation Center,
had remained empty' for the last 19 years, sealed off from use when

The vilest anti-Israel propaganda
is the "View from the left" as the
communists themselves have la-
beled it in their publications in
Greenwich Village and wherever
they can publish their hate sheets.
Their misleading comments on
Israel's treatment of refugees—
(the refugees never were treated
as well as in the last four weeks-
and if Israel's role is not stymied
those in Gaza eventually will have
the citizenship Egypt has been de- I
nying them)—and their lies about
Israel's aspirations are galling.
But most distressing is the fact
that a few Jewish leftists are
among the leaders in this hate-
spreading propaganda campaign.
The poll taken of Americans'
viewpoints—the expression of an
overwhelming majority of our fel-
low citizens in support of Israel
—negates all the poppycock that
stems from the Beirut School of
Theologian hatred, from misled
Arabs and from the viewpoint on
the left (the commies) who take
orders from the Kremlin. Lincoln
was right: you can't fool all of
the people all of the time. Let's
keep Americans informed so that
the hate-spreaders will remain
exposed for the lies they spread.
