Golda Meir, Dr. Schwartz, Rothberg
Appeal to Detroit Jews for Emergency
Efforts in Support of Israel Bonds

Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel's former
foreign minister, Dr. Joseph J.
Schwartz, executive vice president
of the Israel Bond Organization,
and Samuel Rothberg, in addresses
to a group of 50 Israel Bond lead-
ers and prominent Detroit Jewish
community figures Wednesday,
pleaded that the next few weeks,
through the month of June, be
turned into an emergency effort
for increased bond sales to assure
Israel's security.
Their addresses were part of
a nationwide hook-up to 70 Amer--
can Jewish communities, and the
\— - address here was heard at the
;athering of leaders at the Jewish
';enter, specially arranged by the
Jetroit Israel Bond Organization.
/-
Supplementing the appeals of
the world leaders, upon the con-
clusion of their talks, Irwin I.
Cohn, chairman of the June 4
Israel Bond dinner to be ad-
> dressed by Menahem Begin,
asked all out efforts to assure
the bond drive's success here
by attending the dinner and by
buying more bonds.
Rothberg introduced Mrs. Meir
and Dr. Schwartz with his own
evaluations of existing conditions
and with his plea for immediate
efforts in Israel's behalf.
Both Mrs. Meir and Dr. Schwartz
rejected as unfair and unrealistic
the 13-0 UN Security Council vote
on Tuesday demanding that Israel
abandon Jerusalem unification
plans.
Mrs. Meir said no one in Jeru-
salem, Jew or Arab, really believes

.

that Jerusalem can again be a
divided city. She pointed to the de-
velopments in the united city and
said there is widest acceptance
that Jerusalem will not be divided
again.
Referring to the tragedies that
accompanied the several wars that
were fought by Israel, Mrs. Meir
said that there could have been
peace after 1948, but that mount-
ing dangers have prolonged the
existing emergency situation.
Paying tribute to the people
of Israel, she said they are not
afraid, they are not panicky,
and are not disturbed by United
Nations actions.
"The Jews of the world, espe-
cially the Jews of the United
States, must realize that the con-
tinuing threats to Israel also mean
a continuing emergency," Mrs.
Meir said. She admonished her vast
audience throughout the land and
the Detroit listeners not to believe
that the great effort exerted last
June was a one-time job and de-
clared that there must be a con-
tinuation of Jewish effort and of
Jewish dignity.
Asserting that Israel has many
friends, she said there is only one
ally — the Jews of the world —
and to these she appealed for
emergency action at this time.
Mrs. Meir told her listeners
that Israel's fate is linked with
the fate of the Jewish people
and she added to her appeal the
admonition that Israel's security
also involves Jewry's honor.

Dr. Schwartz's plea was coupled
with a statement he read from
Israel Finance Minister Pinhas Sa-
pir who outlined the new Israeli
obligations, the extent of the costs
in defense of the country and the
people and the great responsibili-
ties that devolve in assuring for
Israel continued industrial de-
velopment, expansion of educa-
tional media, provision of health
asurance. To that end, it was in-
dicated, Israel Bonds serve a great
purpose in providing assurance of
economic developments.
Dr. Schwartz urged the alerting
of Jewish communities to existing
needs, the devotion of a 24-hour-a-
day dedication to the bond drive
from now through June. "We must
have more commitments, more
cash," he declared.
