and Israel ... The Arabs will be the fighters but the direction of the
war will come from the 3,500 Soviet generals and officers who arrived cial efforts are being made to ob-

in Cairo in the recent weeks following the sending by Moscow of

hundreds of Soviet warplanes and tanks to bolster Egypt's morale
. . Moscow has during the June war, suffered no small defeat by
Egypt's loss of all the Soviet MIGs and tanks in less than one week of
war with Israel ... However, Moscow lost no time to benefit from this
defeat ... It offered Nasser replacements on condition that the train-
ing of the Egyptian military is supervised by Soviet officers ... Hence,
Moscow is today practically in control of the Egyptian armed forces
„ . Moreover, she is also in control of the oil which Egypt needs for
her military machine-planes, tanks, submarines and transportation

-as well as for industrial establishments ... Since the destruction by
Israel of the Egyptian oil refineries, in retaliation for the sinking of the
Warship Elath, Egypt depends solely on Soviet tankers to bring her oil
from oil-rich Arab countries . . In addition to taking control over
Egypt's armed forces and oil supply, Moscow has also stationed part
of her war fleet at Egyptian ports, ostensibly to protect Egypt against
Israel but at the same time actually tighening its control over Egypt
•• . Thus, Moscow is now standing with both feet in Egypt, with Nasser

taking

orders instead of giving them . . . In a quiet way Moscow
succeeded in converting Egypt during the last months into a Soviet
satellite, and is dictating to Nasser what his policy vis-a-vis Israel



JEWISH DETERMINATION: It will not be a pleasant thing for the
Egyptian generals and officers to take orders from their Russian
Counterparts, but they are beginning to realize now that this will
exactly be the case . . . There is a school of thought expressing the
belief that a renewed Arab war against Israel would not be in the
interest of Moscow ... The argument is - why should Moscow stimu-
late a renewed war between Egypt and Israel when the Soviet govern-
ment maintains practically full control over Egypt now; and this is
all she wants . . . A war, it is pointed out, may bring about a change
in this situation; it may even produce a revolt among Egyptian officers

unwilling to take orders from Soviet generals ... Those advancing these
arguments are losing sight of the vicious anti-Israel propaganda in
the Soviet press which strengthens the hostility of the Arabs against
Israel and which Israel cannot afford to ignore . . . Not to speak of
the extreme attitude against Israel taken by Soviet representatives at
the United Nations . . . Israelis watch Moscow's tactics of keeping
Arab hostility against Israel strong, and they feel that they have
grounds for anxiety; a Soviet-trained Egyptian army is not the same
as an army trained by Egyptian officers . . . At the present moment
the Egyptian loss of Soviet warplanes and tanks has been replenished
fully from Moscow simultaneously with the stationing of Soviet warships
-with missiles and powerful guns'- in Egyptian waters . . . But
Israel has so far not made up as yet even for the loss of her own planes
during the Six-Day War and for the vast amount of ammunition which
she spent .. . . Israel is thus behind in the military equilibrium with
the Arab countries . . . This is why the Jewish community leaders
in this country are determined to make the 1968 fund-raising campaigns
for Israel no less a success than in 1967.

Israel Pound-Or Shekel?

JERUSALEM (ZINS)-A mem-
ber of the Knesset, Zalman Abra-
mov, introduced a resolution
which, if adopted, will change the
name of the Israel pound to "she-
kel." Explaining his theory, Abra-
mov declared that the concept of
"pound" derives from a Latin ex-
pression, whereas the term "she-
kel" denotes an ancient Judaic
coin. He added that the change of
name will cause no confusion in
Israel's financial activity.
