Moscow Takes Offensive Against Israel,

Moscow Compares Zionist
Movement with 'Mafia' and
`Cosa Nostra' Gangster Groups
Soviet Novosti Press Agency has
released from Moscow a vicious at-
tack on the Zionist movement
throughout the world, calling it
"a dangerous weapon of the im-
perialist West" and comparing it
with the Mafia and Cosa Nostra
gangster organizations.
According to reports received
here, Novosti denounced Zionism
as a world ring operating in 60
countries and dealing in every-
thing "from religion to espionage."
The article alleged that Zionism
was organized by Kaiser Wilhelm
II, the Rothschild bankers and
others "to detach Jewish workers
from the international labor move-
ment and to perpetuate the rule of
property owners." It alleged that
Zionism collaborated with Ukrain-
ian anti-Semitism "and, in 1936,
when Zionists actively cooperated
with the Nazi chieftains, they or-
ganized the World Jewish Congress
whose president today still is Dr.
Nahum Goldmann."
(From, London, it was report-
ed Monday that Soviet news-
papers reprinted Novosti's bitter
attack on Zionism very widely.
Novosti is a Soviet feature
agency w h i c h, customarily,
serves only the foreign press
with its Soviet propaganda.)
Soviet Air Force Lt. Gen. Ivan
Kazhedub said in Moscow Monday
that Soviet citizens have volunteer-
ed to fight alongside the Arabs
against Israel in the Middle East,
according to press reports received
The Moscow reports said that
volunteer applications were still
coming in from Soviet citizens who
offered to fight against Jews. Is-
raeli Comunists were denounced
for supporting Israel's "aggressive
policy" against the Arabs.

Tito Carries 'Peace Plan'
to Nasser; Attacks Israel
As Using 'Hitler Methods'
Yugoslavian President Tito ar-
rived in Cairo Thursday with his
own "peace plan" for breaking the
Arab-Israeli deadlock, the Wash-
ington Post reported.
The president of the Washing-
ton Post Company, Katherine Gra-
ham, cabled a personal interview
held with Tito at Brioni.
According to the Graham inter-
view, Tito held that Israeli forces
must withdraw from conquered
territory in exchange for an in-
ternational guarantee of borders
as they were before June 5. Is-
rael's independence and security
would then be assured by the UN
Security Council or by the big
four powers, Tito said.
He maintained that the new
plan was a compromise because it
in effect amounted to de facto re-
cognition of Israel. The Tito plan
would relieve Arab leaders of the
need to unilaterally recognize Is-
rael. Tito feels they could not do
that and survive . politically. He
described activities of some circles
inside Israel as reminiscent of
Adolf Hitler's methods. The Post
The Post said Tito asked how
It was possible that Jews "could
resort to methods from which
they themselves suffered so
much." He contended that Israel
