Hussein Tells Magazine
Jordan Rebuilds Air Force
With British, U.S. ,Planes

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

LONDON (JTA)—King Hussein
of Jordan disclosed in an inter-
view in a British aviation journal
that his country is rebuilding its
Air Force with British and Amer-
ican military planes and expects
to complete the first phase next
year. The Jordanian Air Force
was destroyed by Israeli aircraft
in the first hours of the June,
1967 war.
According to the interview in
the magazine "Flight," when the
phase is completed the Jordanian
Air Force will have two squadrons
of Hawker Hunter close support
aircraft and one squadron of
United States Starfighter inter-
ceptors. New air bases are being
built in Jordan. The King said
that a second phase in the rebuild-
ing process may be the purchase
of the British Hawker Siddeley
"Harrier" jump-jet tactical fighter
planes. He assured the interviewer
that Jordan had no intention of
turning away from its traditional
arms suppliers, Britain and the
U.S., to Russia or any other
country.

FALLSBURG N.Y —"Arab stu-
dents on American college cam-
puses are engaging in a vicious
campaign of defamation against
American Jews and are casting
aspersions on their loyalty, inte-
grity and devotion to the ideals
of America," Rabbi Zev Segal of
Newark, N.J., the newly elected
preident of the Rabbinical Coun-
cil of America, declared here
Wednesday.
Rabbi Segal, speaking at the
32nd annual convention of the as-
sociation of Orthodox Rabbis here,
blamed "these Arab students for
causing the recent assassination
of Sen Robert F. Kennedy due to
their inflammatory, irrational and
brazen hate activities." Rabbi
Segal, in his acceptance speech to
the 600 delegates, appealed to At-
torney General Ramsey Clark to
"undertake an intensive investiga-
tion of the nature of Arab propa-
ganda and action on the campuses
and to suppress any manifesta-
tions, illegality, abuse and violence

which are being indulged in by
these Arab students organizations.
He said "it is absurd to permit
these students to castigate the
American government which is ex-
tending to them extraordinary op-
portunities for study, learning and
travel. They are abusing the hos-
pitality and generosity of the Am-
erican taxpayer who is defraying
the costs of their lengthy stay in
the United States."
Rabbi Segal called upon the
State Department "to revoke the
scholarships of these 7,000 Arab
students who are not adhering to
the requirements of the moral and
legal code which is explicit in the
grant of financial assistance. Th?,
Arab students are collaborating
actively with a variety of subver-
sive elements such as the Commu-
nists and the Black Nationalists in
a deliberate effort to damage and
undermine the security of the
United States. They are daily
waging a most contemptible pro-
gram of hatred and animosity
against American Jewry through-

Nazareth's Mayor Affirms
Loyalties to Israel, Rejects
Charges of Discriminations

Mayor Musa Kteily of Nazareth,
Israel, in a series of appearances
here, at meetings with clergy and
representatives of the Lebanese
Maronite community, stated em-
phatically that he and his fellow-
Arab citizens of Israel are loyal
to their state and they are receiv-
ing equal treatment with their
Jewish fellow citizens.
Pointing out that five Arabs are
members of the Israel Knesset,
Kteily said they are loyal to Is-
rael and that the Israeli Arabs
work together with Israel to as-
sure constant improvement of the

anti- Semitic anonymous letter
threatening the life of Dr. Edward
Goldstuecker, a leader of the
progressive wing of the Czechos-
lovak Communist Party, was pub-
lished in the party newspaper,
Rude Pravo, along with an article
by Dr. Goldstuecker urging the
party to cleanse itself "of people
who have tried to smuggle Nazi
demagoguery into it." According
to press dispatches received here
today, the unsigned letter called
Dr. Goldstuecker a "Z i o n i s t
hyena" and a "disgusting Jew"
and warned him that "your time
will come, your days are reckon-
ed."
Dr. Goldstuecker, who is chair-
man of Czechoslovakia's Writers
Union, attributed the attack to
hard-line opponents of the new
Communist regime's liberal pol-
icies probably associated with
former President Antonin Novo-
tony. The letter alleged that the
democratization now taking place
in Czechoslovakia was the work of
Jews like Dr. Goldstuecker. Dr.
Goldstuecker himself a victim of
Stalinist persecution in the 1950s,
expressed the belief that the anony-
mous writer was a member of the
state security apparatus, because
the language of the letter was
much the same as that used
against him and other defendants
in the anti-Semitic atmosphere of
the purge trial of Rudolf Slansky,
former Secretary-General, of the
Czechoslovak Communist Party,
executed in the 1950s.
The letter and Dr. Goldstueck-
er's article were prominently fea-
tured in the party newspaper. Ac-
cording to some sources, it was
reported here, progressive Corn-
munists are concerned that the
democratization process so far has
benefitted mainly intellectuals and
journalists like Dr. Goldstuecker,
more than the masses of the popu-
lation. Jews hold leading positions
in ciech politics and

out the length and breadth of the
U.S.," Rabbi Segal declared.
Rabbi Segal warned the State
Department and the Department
of Justice that "failure to stem
this type of Arab campus involve-
ment will inevitably result in other
homicidal tragedies, weaken the
diplomatic status of the nation,
and create an environment of
mutual hostility among our popu-
lace. It is incument upon all of
our government officials to pre-
vent such catastrophes by adopt-
ing drastic means to curb this
well financed Arab machine."

status of all Israeli citizens.
He reaffirmed that the Is-
raeli Arabs enjoy political and
economic status, that Arabs re-
ceive equal pay with Jews in
Israel and have economic equal-
ity.
Expressing regret over propa-
ganda that is spread by Arab
countries he asserted that the
rumors stemming from outside
areas are the cause of misunder-
standings.
Replying to a question from a
Christian clergyman regarding
charges that Israel prevented
Arabs from praying at holy places,
he categorically denied the rumors
and said that, on the contrary,
only the outside Arab propagand-
ists had spread such rumors, that
there is absolute religious free-
dom in Israel and that Arab pol-
iticians in the Arab states had
ordered a boycott of religious
places in order to give the im-
pression that Israel is discriminat-
ing. He said such orders are not
being adhered to.
There were reports of some
threats to Mayor Kteily by anti-
Israel university students, but all
of his appearances ended peace-
fully.
As mayor of Nazareth, Kteily
heads one of the most important
municipal centers in Israel. An
Arab of the Greek Orthodox faith,
he has lived all of his life in Upper
Gailee.
