Israel and Arabs Reported Willing to Aid
Jarring; Guerrilla Warfare Is Wrecked

—The Arab states involved in the
Middle East hostilities, as well as
Israel, have treated Gunnar Jarr-
ing, the United Nations' special
representative to the Middle East,
"with the utmost courtesy and
with expressions of willingness to
cooperate with his mission," Sec-
retary-General Thant reported.
Thant made that report to all
members of the UN on the basis
of the first report he had received
from Ambassador Jarring after
the latter had concluded the first
of a series of visits to the Mideast
region, during which he had visited
the capitals of Egypt, Jordan and
Lebanon, as well as Jerusalem.
Ambassador Jarring will make
another visit to Israel in the next
few days, Thant said. The
Secretary-General added that he
is "encouraged" by the Arab and
Israeli willingness to cooperate
with Mr. Jarring.

The Soviet Union has unleashed
a new attack on Israel and Zion-
ism with an article in a leading
Russian newspaper seeking to
link Zionism with Nazism and
anti-Semitism, it was reported
here from Moscow.
The new wave of attacks fol-
lowed a short'lived indication of
possible moderation emerging
from the Warsaw conference on
Middle East policy, concluded last
week by Communist leaders from
eight countries. The Warsaw com-
munique referred to Israel's right
to exist, butt stressed the primacy
of unconditional withdrawal from
occupied territories.

and radio propaganda indicated
that the anti-Israel campaign
would continue unabated. The line
is based on charges that Israel
employed "Nazi" methods against
the Arabs.

Rival "Palestine Liberation"
movements are now meeting In
Cairo to discuss escalation of
guerrilla operations against Is-
rael, according to reports re-
ceived here. The Cairo news-
paper, Al Ahram, said the Arab
representatives of the various
terrorist groups convened "to
explore the possibilities of bring-
ing about unified Palestine ac-

guerrilla groups, and escalating
the armed struggle in occupied

The meeting followed the resig-

State Dept. Sees Israel

'Exaggerating' Need for Arms

State Department sources ex-
pressed the view that Israel is
exaggerating her need for addi-
tional military equipment and the
extent of the Soviet military build-
up of Arab states. Speaking on
the record, however, Spokesman
Robert McCloskey said the Depart-
ment had "no detailed informa
tion" on the Soviet resupply of
the Arabs.
Responding to questions about
Israel's desire to purchase 50
Phantom F-4 jets to replace air-
craft canceled by France, McClos-
key said "I can neither confirm
nor deny that such a request was

Rep. Jonathan Bingham, New
York Democrat, wrote President
Johnson on the need for the United
States to take greater responsibil-
ity for Israeli military needs, in
view of the French termination of
supplies to Israel. He cited reports
that the administration was re-
sponding negatively to the Israeli
requests at this juncture.

The attack in the Young Commu-

Zionism sought to exploit anti-
Semitism to manipulate Jewish
working class people. The writer,
Yuri Ivanov, quoted Theodor Herzl,
father of modern political Zionism,
as allegedly stating that anti-

with the permission of Israel
authorities last week, ostensibly
to negotiate the re-opening of
Jordanian banks in East Jeru-
salem, was permanently ban-
ished from Jerusalem Wednes-
day after he publicly swore al-
legiance to King Hussein and
was appointed by the king to
the Jordanian Senate.
The banker, Anton Atallah,
was one of six Palestinian
Arabs appointed to the senate
in Amman But none of the
others publicly took an oath of
allegiance to King Hussein.
The banishment of Atallah, on
the orders of Defense Minister
Moshe Dayan, apparently ended
a second attempt to reach an
agreement with the Jordanian
authorities for the reopening of
bank branches in East Jeru-
salem. A plan drawn up earlier
by the Central Bank of Jordan
was rejected by Israeli authori-
