Union into the Middle East which
holds out to the Arabs the hope of
recovering their lost territories
without changing their anti-Israel
policy. Gen. Rabin doubted that
the Soviets want to see warfare
renewed in the Middle East. "But
I would say that she would not like
to see a peace settlement and an
end to the tensions in the region
unless it be on her own terms,"
he said. The continued tension and
instability in the area, he said, was
one of the factors that enabled the
USSR to establish herself in the
Middle East and to extend her
military presence there.
On the subect of American
arms shipments to Jordan, Am-
bassador Rabin said no Israeli
was happy to see a country that
waged war last June being re-
armed while there was still no
peace. On the other hand, he ob-
served, it is "perhaps better to
have someone other than the
Russians in Jordan."
With reference of France's con-
tinued embargo on the shipment
of Mirage jet planes to Israel, Gen.
Rabin said "although France re-
fuses to deliver the plans bought
and paid for in 1965, Israelis feel
a debt to the French government
and people for past assistance and
for the quality of French arms."
He said there was no doubt that
Israel will try to obtain jet planes
from other sources.

charges of multiple murders of
Jews in Grodno in Poland. One
was Heinz Errelis, 53, former SS

was Kurt Wiese, 53, another former
SS officer who headed one of the
two Grodno ghettos from 1941 to
1943. Wiese was accused of the
murder of Jews in 177 cases and
Errelis of participation in the mur-

Ambassador Rabin side-stepped
a question on the Vietnam war.
Asked what he, as a general,
would do in Vietnam, he replied
that no responsible general would
say anything about a war that he
did not know at first hand. Asked
why Israel forces stopped at the
Suez Canal in last June's war, he
replied: "try to imagine what the
world would have said if we had
advanced any further."
President Johnson is shown here welcoming Israel's new am-
bassador, Gen. ltzhak Rabin, at a ceremony at the White House.
Our Torah Says: "For man is as a tree
of the field" (Deut. 20:19) ie man's
life is similar to the tree that grows in
the field. Just as a tree has roots,
branches, fruits and leaves, so too does
a human being have roots, fruits —
which are deeds — leaves — which are
