THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Alfred Kazin Sees Israel Destined
for Special Role in World History



In the November issue of Har-:
per's Magazine, Alfred Kazin, dis-
tinguished author, reviews the cur-
rent situation in Israel. He deals
with it as "a phenomenon of reli
gious experience" and believes Is-
rael is "destined for a special role
in world history." In the course
of his analyses he states:
"The Jews of Israel have learned
that they are not Canaanites, but'•
Jews. Never, it is safe to say, has
the bond to other Jews been felt ,
so keenly. Therefore, what the Is-
raelis are consciously striving for
most is a great new immigration
of Jews, especially of young Jews,
and preferably from the West. The
Israelis are looking very hard at
American Jews, but of course are
getting only youth volunteers for
a season—and tourists. It would
seem that the staggering prosper-
ity of so many American Jews,
though it creates 'alienation' and
a special affection for positive.
Spartan, heroic Israel, also makes
it impossible to see Israel as one's
personal destiny. The Israeli lead-
ers, constantly pleading with what

one writer bitterly called the 'rich,
self-satisfied burghers of Cleveland,
Philadelphia, New York,' will not
admit to themselves that most im-
migrants to Israel went there out
of dire necessity. 'How can you
write the Russian novel in Amer-
ica,' Robert Frost inquired, 'when
people live so unterribly?' The Is-
raelis think that spiritually speak-
ing, American Jews do indeed live
'terribly.' They feel that they are
the center of Jewish existence in
the world, and what they are most
deeply concerned about just now
is no longer the survival of their
country, but the survival of Jewish-
ness, of the Jewish idea, in Israel
itself."

Head of French Ziortists
Says Time Opportune for
Emigration to Israel

PARIS (JTA) — The chairman
of the French Zionist Federation
said here that widespread
identification with Israel and grow-
ing unemployment in France have
created conditions favorable to the
recruitment of French Jews, par-
ticularly the youth, for immigra -
tion to Israel. M. Benveniste told
newsmen at a press conference
that the newly created French
Zionist Youth Federation fils set-
tled in Israel as its chief aim.

Israel Girl Traffic Cops Try
to Help, but Snarl Rome Traffic
ROME (JTA)—Three attractive,
smartly uniformed girls from Is-
rael caused a traffic jam in one
of Rome's busiest intersections
though their, intention was just the
opposite. The girls, members of
Israel's traffic police corps, were
sent here for a week's stay in con-
nection with the opening of Israel
Week at a large shopping center
on the Via Tritone. They were as-
signed to direct traffic for several
hours a day on the Piazza Barbe-
rini, where several roads converge.
Italian motorists, however, paid
more attention to the girls than to
their traffic directions.
