Conservative Leader
Denies Christians
Failed to Back Israel

NEW YORK (JTA) — Charges
by Jewish spokesmen that Israel's
Six-Day War proved the "failure
and futility" of Jewish-Christian
dialogue were termed "malicious
distortions" and "narcisstic non-
sense" last weekend by Rabbi
Wolfe Kelman, executive vice-
president of the Rabbinical Assem-
T h e Conservative rabbinical
leader also declared, in a state-
ment here, that it was not true
that there had been "an inade-
quate response" from Christians
during the Middle East crisis,
when Israel was "in danger of
annihilation." He asserted that
"most Christians in the United
States and, indeed, all of Europe,
both East and West, sided with
Israel's cause in May and June."
"Demonstrations and petitions
were signed and joined by hun-
dreds of thousands of Christians
in America France, Holland,
etc. " Rabbi Heiman asserted.

"There were also thousands of
individual Christian, many of
great distinction, who took - forth-
right and unequivocal positions
demanding that committments
to Israel be honored and that all
necessary action be taken to
thwart the conspiracy to destroy

He said that clergymen such as
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Dr.
John Bennett, president of Union
Theological Seminary, Archbishop
Hallinan and Cardinal Cushing, Dr.
Reinhold Niebhur and "thousands
of other clergymen of all denomi-
nations publicly expressed their
identification with the anxiety
which all Jews felt for the con-
tinued survival of the Jews in
Israel and the integrity of the
Jewish State."

NEW YORK (JTA) — Rabbi Is-
rael Miller, chairman of the Am-
erican Zionist Council, denounced
here "attempts by anti-Semites
and self-hating Jews to differen-
tiate between 'Jews' and 'Zion-
ists' " He called such attempts
"false and discredited" and de-
clared that "the unanimity of re-
sponse" by Jews everywhere to the
threat of destruction of Israel in
the May-June crisis and war
"should have laid to rest once and
for all the canard that Jew and
Zionist are separate and apart."
Rabbi Miller, who is also chair-
man of the American Jewish Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry, made his
comments in an address to repre-
sentatives of the council's nine
constituent Zionist groups at a
special dinner meeting of the
council's executive c ommittee
given in honor of Dr. Max Nuss-
baum of Hollywood and Nathaniel
S. Rothenberg, former chairman
and administrative committee
chairman of the council, respec-
tively. They were honored for 25
years of leadership for Zionism
and Israel.
