ring action on the P-4 Phantom
jet fighter-bombers sought by
Israel to maintain a deterrent
force. The committee charged
that the President asked as his
"price" that Prime Minister Levi
Eshkol of Israel help persuade
American Jewish leaders to sup-
port the President's Vietnam
policies and his re-election bid.
An editorial in the Republican
newsletter asked: "What was
LBJ's price for 50 Phantom jets?
Not only. Eshkol's support of the
President's Vietnam policy but
the prime minister's pledge to use
his influence to help win votes
among Jews in the country for
LBJ's re-election bid. The jets,
Johnson, in effect, told Eshkol,
would be forthcoming after the
election this fall."
White House spokesman George
Christian, rejected the charges of
pressure on Eshkol. Christian told
the JTA: "Yesterday I called it
ridiculous. Today I will call it
Citing a report in Newsweek, the
newsletter asserted that Eshkol
was "pressured" into acceptance
of this arrangement and later ask-
ed a closing meeting of Jewish
leaders in New York to support
"Either the decision to make
Phantom jets available to Israel
is sound or it is not," the Repub-
licans asserted. "If it is, the planes
should be made available now—
not after the election. We believe
the decision is sound. And we be-
lieve Mr. Politics' blatant efforts
to put Israel and her prime minis-
ter on the spot will be resented by
Americans generally, but particu-
larly by our citizens of Jewish
faith who will recognize that the
voice is the voice of Jacob but
the hand is the hand of Esau."
The editorial noted that "by the
best intelligence estimates, includ-
ing U.S. military leaders, NATO
experts and others, the Russians
are embarked on a massive mili-
tary and naval buildup in the
Mediterranean and Middle East.
Israel needs new weapons, parti-
cularly U.S. Phantom jets, to meet
the challenge posed by the Soviet
presence there and by the Soviet
MIGs supplied to the Arab na-

raelis here hesitate to offer a
categorical positive evaluation of
Eshkol's visit.
Nevertheless, they recognize cer-
tain achievements.
One is that Eshkol succeeded in
obtaining an American identifica-
tion with the security of Israel.
Also he re-established personal
contact with President Johnson;
healed the rift resulting from Is-
rael's failure to apprise the United
States of the impending war and
demonstrated to the Arabs and the
Soviet Union that Israel is not
The correspondent further re-
ports that in the friendly conversa-
tions, President Johnson clearly
emphasized that America does not
recognize the occupied territories
as being part of Israel, although
Israel is entitled to "certain"
border readjustments—a contention
which has been confirmed by U.S.
News and World Report.
According to its story, Johnson
told Eshkol that Israel will have to
make a "symbolic" withdrawal
from the Suez Canal as the first
tangible step toward Israeli-Arab
peace. It also notes that Israel
received similar advice from other
world leaders.

LONDON (JTA) — Mrs. Fran-
coise Jordan, ex-wife of British
Nazi party leader Colin Jordan,
was sentenced to 18 months im-
prisonment Jan. 17 after a jury
in Old Bailey Court found her
guilty of conspiring to set fire
to a London synagogue that burned
in 1965.
After the judge pronounced sen-
tence, the French-born Mrs. Jor-
dan faced the jury, gave the Nazi
salute and shouted "Heil Hitler."
The jury, which had beep
warned by Judge Cusack not to

convict Mrs. Jordan "because you
dislike her opinions," was unable
to reach a verdict on another
charge of conspiring to set fire
to a synagogue at Stanmore, Mid-
dlesex. On the instructions of the
judge, Mrs. Jordan was acquitted
of a third charge of inciting mem-
bers of the British Nazi Party to
burn synagogues.
During the trial Mrs. Jordan
declared that Hitler was her
"eternal leader" and that she
despised •the "Jewish race" be-
cause they are "evil."

`SNCC Cooled Jewish
Support of Civil Rights'

resolve on civil rights issues has
been "mitigated" by the activities
of extremist factions in the Negro
community, Rabbi Jay Kaufman,
executive vice president of Bnai
Brith, said at a reception given by
the order in honor of Mayor Walter
E. Washington and other members
of the District of Columbia admin-
Mayor Washington is a Negro.
"The anti-Israel position taken
by SNCC (Student Nonviolent
Coordinating Committee) and by
the New Left conference in Chic-
ago last year has created confu-
sion in the minds of Jews who
had supported the goals of the
Negro revolution." Rabbi Kauf-
man said. "I think that Jews were
singularly free of the corrosion
of the white backlash until then,"
he said, "but they are no longer
and must be brought back to
their former resolve and fervor."
Mayor Washington told the 200
guests at the reception that he ac-
cepted Rabbi Kaufman's challenge
and called for a coalition of busi-
ness, religious and civic leaders of
the district "to help bring about
the kind of town where we can live
in peace and dignity."
He warned, however, that "if we
develop the attitudes of negativism
and defeatism, we may as well not
make the effort."
