Peace in Mid-East Not Forseen
_ in Near Future by Carmichael

Author-lecturer Joel Carmichael
closed the Midrasha Institute se-
ries on "Prospects of Peace in the
Middle East" with a gloomy view
of the immediate future.
With the Arab national move-
ment having "no other reason for
existence" than the common hatred
for Israel, the possibility of Arab
recognition of the Jewish state is
a "long-range hope."
"The Possibilities of a Rap-
prochement Between Israel and the
Arab Nations" was Carmichael's
scheduled topic Wednesday night
at the Esther Berman Building,
United Hebrew Schools. He ad-
mitted at the outset, however,
that the possibilities are few and
in large part determined by the
Great Powers'intentions in the
Middle East.
Two prerequisites to peace as
Carmichael sees it are: (1) the
perception by the Arab leaders
that there is no threat from this
small country which, although
double her pre-Six-Day War size,
is a small fraction of her neigh-
bors' immense territory; and (2)
the realization that Israel is "so
well prepared militarily, there is
no point in attacking her."
The common people of the . un-
derdeveloped Arab lands must
be reached, Carmichael stressed,
if there is to be any peace move.
"The leaders concentrate on
Israel, because they can't solve
their own problems." He sug-
gested that such a breakthrough
could be in the area of econom-
ics—and now he was engaging
hi wishful thinking — perhaps
through private business inita-
ated by Jewish businessmen in
the United States, which would-
result in an overhaul of the
Arab economies.
Realistically, "tthe Arabs must
accommodate to Israel's presence
without a loss to their self-esteem."
Friends and foes of Israel, alike,



up for
U. S. Savings Bonds,
New Freedom Shares

said Carmichael, falsely assume
that the Jews want more territory.
Israel does not need more terri-
tory and does not want it; the
Arabs must be made to realize
The entity known as the Arab
people is largely a fiction, said
Carmichael, who briefly traced
the political history of the peo-
ples of the Middle East. The Arabs
are actually the nomads who in-
habit the Arabian Peninsula. "The
Arabic-speaking peoples never
thought of themselves as Arabs
. . . The Arab national movement
came into existence primarily as
a reaction to the Zionist presence
in Palestine." Until World War I,
there was not a single Arab en-
tity in existence, Carmichael
pointed out.
In the political sense, he said,
the Arabs as a nation were cre-
ated by Jews. When Mohammed
arose among the atomized tribes
in the Arabian Peninsula, he drew
them to him with a notion handed
to him by the Jews, monotheism,
and shaped his career on Moses'.
Once the tribes were given form,
said Carmichael, they stopped
their bickering and, united under
Mohammed, smashed the Persian
Empire. "The Arabian tribespeo-
ple weren't remotely interested in
religion, only material gain."
Carmichael suggested that with
the end to the war in Vietnam, a
great danger will face Israel:
"a great concentration of power
in the Middle East.
Carmichael condemned the "well-
meaning suggestion" that Israel
accept the Arab refugees into her
territory. "It would wipe her out,"
he said, adding that the Arab
countries have a great deal of land
to accommodate the refugees, who
are used as a "political harassment
to Israel."
He also said that the Arabs on
the West Bank of the Jordan, not
refugees but "wards of the Israel
government," may have to be ac-
commodated with a territorial so-
lution: either "bust up the Jor-
danian kingdom" or, more prac-
tically, create an "autonomous
state in Israel—an Arab sector that
would be subsidized by Israel.
As for the United States policy
in the Middle East, it's "very vari-
able, hard to implement. Like the
Soviet Union, the United States
must placate tthe Arabs at all
