Ben-Gurion Claims in His Memoirs He Urged 1948 West Bank Occupation

TEL AVIV — Former Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion dis-
closed, in memoirs to be published
here shortly, that 20 years ago
he proposed Israeli occupation of

the West Bank of the Jordan be-
cause of repeated Arab truce vio-
lations, but was overruled by his
cabinet.
The Israeli leader also told how
as early as 1945 he went to the
United States and enlisted the sup-
port of 20 Amer-
ican Jews who
pledged $1,000-
000 to purchase
arms for the
Jews of Pales-
tine to fight the
n e i g h b o r-
ing states.
Ben - Gurion's
memoirs will be
published in al-
bum form by the Ben-Gurion
newspaper Maariv in connection
with the 20th anniversary of
Israel's independence.
Ben-Gurion wrote that in 1948
he believed that Arab violations
of the truce justified Israeli
counter-action.
After the Arabs blew up the
water pumping station at Latrun,
cutting off Jerusalem's water sup-
ply and after the Egyptians pre-
vented supply vehicles from reach-
ing isolated settlements in the
Negev, he asked the general staff
how much time was needed to
capture Latrun, eliminate the

LOS ANGELES (JTA) — The
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center has
joined with six other Los Angeles
hospitals to form the Los Angeles
Transplant Society, which will
establish the world's first pool of
organs for transplant.
A live donor program for kidney
transplants has been underway at
the Jewish-sponsored hospital for
11- than two years. That pro-
_ .11. is administered by the Ced-
ars-Sinai Transplant Dialysis com-
mittee, headed by Dr. Charles
Kleeman, director of the Cedars-
Sinai divisions of medicine, and
comprised of hospital doctors and
representatives from the hospital's
social service and administration
departments. The committee will
work with the Transplant Society.
The Transplant Society's pro-
gram will deal initially with kid-
neys. As medical advances are
made, the program will be en- THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

The general staff said they
needed a week or two to organize
the operation, Ben-Gurion wrote.
He submitted the proposal to the
provisional cabinet but was able
to get support of only three minis-
ters.
Ben-Gurion said he decided to
liberate the Negev but got cabinet
approval before submitting the
plan. He ordered the army into
action and "The Egyptian force
in Palestine was smashed."
Ben-Gurion contended in his
memoirs that Israel's first foreign
minister, the late Moshe Sharett,
had been influenced by warnings
from U.S. Secretary of State Mar-
shall that the Arab armies would
destroy the Jewish state and en-
tertained grave doubts about pro-
claiming Israel's independence.
According to Ben-Gurion, Israel
Galilee, then chief of Hagana and
today minister of information in
the Eshkol government, had been
"psychologically unprepared for
the transition from fighting Arab
brigands to facing the Arab reg-
ular armies.
Ben-Gurion said he flew to the
United States in August 1945, and
convened a meeting of 20 "trusted
American Jews" whom he told that

the Jews of Palestine must pre-
pare for war to be waged by all
of Palestine's Arab neighbors.
About $1,000,000 was pledged
at the meeting, he said. Surplus
arms manufacturing equipment
was bought and shipped to Pales-
tine. Most of the heavy weapons,
including fighter aircraft, tanks,
cannon, machine guns and rifles
were bought in Czechoslovakia and
some artillery was clandestinely
sold to the Jews by France, Ben-
Gurion said.
