THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
Friday, December 1, 1967-7

Meted by Israel in the June deb-
acle, he reported that 80 per cent of
the army's equipment had been
smashed, 10,000 soldiers and 1,500
officers lost and 5,000 soldiers and
500 officers captured.
He declared that "the naval bat-
tle off Port -Said shows what we
can do," a reference to the sinking
of the Israeli destroyer Elath on
Oct. 21 by Soviet-made missiles
from Egyptian naval vessels.
The Times of London said that
Nasser's speech had made "non-
sense" of the Security Council
resolution.
NEW YORK (JTA) — Dr.
Nahum Goldmann, president of the
World Zionist Organization, said
Israel's leaders were aware that
Israel's central problem was to
reach a system of co-existence
with the Arab states and that the
Soviet Union, by virtue of its
status as principal source of arms
for the Arabs, had a crucial vote
and major influence in settling
the problems of the Middle East.
He told a press conference here
that without Soviet acquiesence,
"it is hard to foresee any definite
or even temporary settlement
which will do away with the dan-
ger of renewal of hostilities." He
warned that in the absence of a
settlement, r e n e w e d hostilities
could break out.
The Zionist leader advised that
a settlement could not be expected
in the near future because of the
complexity of the situation and
multitude of interests by so many
powers, religious and other groups
in that sensitive area.
