Jarring's London Mission Losing Steam

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News) .

LONDON—The optimism which
surrounded the renewed activity
of United Nations peace envoy Am-
bassador Gunnar V. Jarring ap-
peared to be petering out Wednes-
day and prospects for an immedi-
ate break in the Arab-Israel im-
passe seemed remote.
Dr. Jarring met Tuesday night
with British • Foreign Secretary
Michael Stewart and earlier had
a second round of discussions with
Jordanian Foreign Minister Abdul
' Moneim Rifai. Dr. Jarring also
conferred Tuesday with Ambas-
- sador Gideon Rafael, director gen-
eral . of Israel's foreign ministry.

Nothing was disclosed of the
talks with Rifai. The Jordanian
diplomat afterwards would say
only that "Present prospects are
not without hope."
The Daily Telegraph noted
the length and obviously de-
tailed nature of the Jarring-
Rifai talks suggesting that the
UN envoy might regard Jordan
as the best channel for dealings
with the Arab countries.
Stewart was understood to have
expressed his government's grow-
ing concern over the continued
closure of the Suez Canal and told
Dr. Jarring that if there was no
immediate progress toward a Mid-
die East settlement, the problem

Polish Communist Leader Urges End
to Anti-Zionist Fight 'Fast as Possible'

LONDON (JTA) -- A Polish
Communist Party leader said Tues-
day that the "fight against Zion-
ism" was being "artifically main-
tained" by some of the party or-
ganizations and should be ended
"as fast as possible," it was re-
ported here in dispatches from
Warsaw.
The remark was attributed to
Zenon Kliszko, the party's ideolo-
gist, who spoke at the opening
session of a meeting of the Polish
Communist Party's central com-
mittee.
According to the reports, Klisz-
ko charged that "some organiza-
tions, -especially officials and
clerks, maintain an atmosphere of
anti-Zionism" that was "false and
exaggerated." He also contended
that "the Jews and the Zionists
are being made identical" by
those who are continuing the cam-
paign.

'No Substitute
for Phantorn Jet'

(Continued from Page 1)
missiles were viewed by the U.S.
as a substitute for the 50 Phan-
tom jets that were requested by
Prime Minister Levi Eshkol dur--
ing his visit with President John-
son last January. The administra-
tion has since been under strong
pressure from many Congressmen,
and from political candidates to
sell the Phantoms to Israel in view
of the massive Soviet build-up of
Egypt's air force. But the State
Department is believed to have
sought to defer the sale. Some
-- -- observers in Washington said to-
day that the State Department rec- .
ommended to the • White House
that a formula be found to bolster
Israel's air defense but deny her
the Phantoms whic,h could be used
offensively. The Hawk is a purely
defensive weapon.
(Other sources speculated that
the agreement to sell Israel addi-
tional Hawk missiles would pave
the way for the sale of the Phan-
tom jets. After Eshkol's visit,
Johnson promised Israel about 20
more A-4 Skyhawk fighter-bomb-
ers. The U.S. has already' begun .
the shipment of three –squadro-ns .
of 48 Skyhawks under a sales
agreement concluded • in '1966.
Their delivery had been held Up
by the June 1967 war. The presi-
dent was said to have made no
commitment on Israel's request for
the faster, more modern ftan-
toms. Officials have maintained
that their sale remained • Under
"sympathetic consideration.").
(The London Telegraph reported
from Amman Friday that the U.S.
has just completed and publicized
airflight to Jordan of arms and
military equipment. Heavy equip-
ment, including "dozens" of Patton
tanks, artillery and anti-tank guns
are being sent by sea and are
expected at Aqaba later this
month, the paper said. According
to the Telegraph the shipments
were not announced apparently at
the requeSt of American authori-
ties who are sensitive about re-
entering the Middle East arms
race and are worried about the
reaction of the "Zionist lobby.")

Kliszko is a close associate of
Communist Party chief Wladislaw
Gomulka. Observers saw in his re-
marks an indictment of the
methods used by Minister of In-
terior Maj. Gen. . Miecyzslaw Moc-
zar, Gomulka's chief rival, who
is believed to have headed Po-
land's four-month-old "anti-Zion-
ist" campaign, the Warsaw re-
ports said.
But in addition to being part
of the struggle for power within
Poland's Communist hierarchy,
Kliszko's call for termination of
the anti-Zionist campaign was
seen as in indication of the
Warsaw regime's growing sen-
sitivity to charges from abroad
that the campaign was thinly
disguised anti-Semitism.
According to the Warsaw dis-
patches, Kliszko charged that "an
exceptionally harsh tariff (fine)
is applied for petty transgressions
of persons of Jewish. origin . . .
transgressions of a type which are
sometimes not sen in others."
He said that "it is alien to our
party to make a difference . . .
according to criteria of nation or
origin." He affirmed the party's
opposition to Zionism but said
Zionism's "social basis" in Poland
is "narrow." The official Polish
press agency, PAP, carried a ver-
sion' Of the Kliszko „speech which
quoted him as saying that the
problem of Zionism has been
"basically explained, and one can
and has to take it off the agenda
of party propaganda."

would rapidly deteriorate. He re-
portedly prelicted a renewal of
the "angry Arab debate" in the
security Council and New Arab
demands for sanctions against
Israel.
The Times of London reported
from Beirut Wednesday that
America has delivered about 60
Patton tanks to Jordan at a time
when the Jordanian army was be-
coming increasingly critical of
King Hussein's military policies
and his refusal to buy arms from
Soviet Russia although officers
are complaining of shortages of-
almost every type of military
equipment. The Times of London
said that America has been ship-
ping tanks, artillery, ammunition
and spare parts and other equip-
ment to Jordan for the past two
months. But the shipments are not
being publicized, presumably to
avert increased Israeli pressure
for the American F-4 Phantom
jets, the Times said. The paper
estimated that J o r d an now has
about 11 British Hunter planes.
Dr. Jarring, it was believed,
would meet with Kosygin in
Stockholm where the Soviet
leader was due on a state visit
Thursday. He was expected to
confer with Thant in Geneva

where the latter has just open-
ed a general conference of the

UN Economic and Social Coun-
cil.
It was also reported here that
Dr. Jarring was anxious to meet
with President Johnson when he
returns to New York.
