Arnoni's Effective Resume of Middle East
Situation; Leftists Challenged on Issues

M. S. Arnoni is a leftist. His
magazine, The Minority of One,
is the arch-independent magazine
that is considered leftist. Its grow-
ing subscription list attests to an
admiration for a
man of independ-
ent thinking. He
is a bitter foe of
the U. S. Viet-
nam policies, and
he has exposed
the crimes of the
Nazis. He does
not hesitate to
oppose Establish-
ments which seek
Arnoni
to impose their
wills on the populace.
The magazine Of which Arnoni
is the editor is described as an
"independent monthly f o r an
American alternative — dedicated
to the eradication of all restric-
tions on thought," and the legend
adhered to, a quotation from
George Orwell, asserts — "there
was truth and there was untruth,
and if you clung to the truth even
against the whole world, you were
not mad."
Leftists expected Arnoni to op-
pose Israel, to to endorse the ex-
treme left's antagonistic attitude
towards the Zionist cause. He
emerged once again as the sup-
porter of truth, as the opponent
of the traducers, and he has writ-
ten, first in a complete issue of
The Minority of One and now in
a full-length book. an anatomycal
analysis of the vriddle East situa-
tion and the Six-nay War that

sideration by those studying the re-
cent events.
Arnoni's analyses relate not only
to the status of Israel, the era
during which there was a threat
that Israel and the Israelis would
be annihilated — relating to the
situation as it existed in May
1967 — but devotes itself very
thoroughly to the facts which
evolved from Arab quarters.
And he deals so effectively also
with the Russian position that his
book gains a top spot among
those aimed at revealing the
bases for the Middle East crises.
Few of the many published
books about the Middle East have
so devastatingly dealt with the lies
that crept into the United Nations
discussions and the lies that were
perpetrated by Arab and Soviet
Union propagandists.
It is especially noteworthy that
adherence to progressive princi-
ples. transcending the Middle
East's problems, concernig them-
selves with the effect of develop-
ing events upon the world peace
Problems, elevate Arnoni's book —
"Rights and Wrongs in the Arab-
Israel Conflict"—above the ro'itine
journalistic efforts of other works
about the Six-Day War.
It is the aftermath and the
total picture which causes that
"anatomy of the forces of nroq-
ross and reaction in the Middle
East" to be of such gre"t merit.
Published by Minority of (The

Prers (155 Pennington. Passaic.

Arnoni's book throws ,ligh1
on the history of the neonles in
the middle East. It defends Israel's
right to exist. He declares em-
phatically:
"Certainly, there must be some-
thing, wrong with such an inter-
pretation of the historic tasks
of progressive people and the
national liberation forces as. in
effect, denies the right to life
instead of upholding it. The
spectacle of communists, social-
ists and Asian and African anti-
imperialists supporting the poli-
cies of unreformed pro-Nazi-Arab
leaders is unbelievable despite
its sad reality. No presumed
ideological or political consist-
ency is worth such dehumaniza-
tion."
Arnoni, as an aftermath to this
book, published an article that ex-
posed the horrors of Polish anti-
Semitism (portion of it having been
reproduced in The Jewish News).

In his powerful book, he reveals
similarly the early relations be-
tween Communists and Zionists
and presents facts to dispel the
erroneous presumptions about the
Russian position, reveals the USSR
leaders' animosities, refutes argu-
ments about Israel that have sud-
denly become stock-in-trade for
leftists in this country.
On the score of his expose of
leftist delusions, Arnoni renders a
great service. If only those who
have been misled into following a
Communist - organized blockade
against Israel will study the facts
he presents, a great additional ser-
vice can he benefited from his
noteworthy book.
Recognizing that the prospects
for a settlement of the issue in-
volve the two super-powers who
are engaged in the Cold War, Ar-
noni has interesting nronosals.
In his conclusions he propagates
that Israel should not maintain
a one-sided relationship with the
United States and should strive
for cordial relations with the
Soviet Union and the Third
World. He emphasizes that
"nothing constructive and peace-
preserving can even begin in the
Middle East unless the Arab
world is first induced to realize
that its claimed prerogative to
annihilate Israel is wrong, im-
moral, intolerable and unachiev-
able." He is not hopeless, main-
tains that the approach to peace
is "slow and tedious" but that
"none of the difficulties is in-
surmountable and none more de-
cisive that the Arab attitude,"
and he adds on that score:
"Rarely in history has a clearer
option confronted nations than
that which now confronts the
Arabs: Contruction or Destruc-
tion. When all is said and consid-
ered, the final answer is theirs."
The author adds to his conclu-
sion this admonition: "A just solu-
tion of the Middle East conflict
must spell out the survival and
welfare of all, not the survival of
some and welfare for the few. If
I find myself in candid sympathy
with Israel rather than with the
Arab states, this is not because of
greater political or cultural rap-
port with the former, indeed for
no reason other than the fact that
Israel's position is immensely
closer to the principle of survival
and welfare for all then is the
Arab position."
