Anti-Semitism on Various Levels
Studied; Seen in NY School Situation

NEW YORK.—A Church of Eng-
land clergyman co n t e n d e d that
"latent anti-Semitism" affected the
judgment of Christian Churches
which remained
silent during the
weeks before
June 5, 1967
"when the Arabs
were threatening
in speeches,
broadcasts a n d
even pre,cise
Army orders to
kill ever y Jew
they could in
Israel."
Dr. James W.
Parkes, a histori-
an and pioneer in
scholarship on re-
Parkes lations between
Judaism and Christianit, made his
remarks at a meeting of Chris-
tian and Jewish scholars sponsored
by the American Jewish Committee
and the National Conference of
Christians and Jews.
Dr. Parkes stressed the need
for continuous dialogue between c
Christians and Jews. But he said
it "will only become creative, and
really *help the world to under-
stand itself and its needs when it
is a dialogue without any qualifica-
tions between equals."
He also called for an increased
dialogue by informed schplars and
other authorities who would -ex-
plore the problems of peace be-
tween Israel and her Arab neigh-
bors more objectively than has
\ been possible in the course of
heated debates between Arabs and
Jews.
The education editor of the
New York Times warned Monday
of the growth of anti-Semitism
among Negroes particularly in
connection with the New York
City school situation, A "sick
and dangerous kind of racism"
is developing in the conflict over
decentralization of the school
system, Fred M. Hechinger
wrote.
"Anti-Semitism among the Negro
Separatists should not be mini-
mized," he declared. "But there is
also strong indication that more of
the growth anti-Semitism in the
all4Negro areas is of the angry,
largely economically motivated
kind that sees the successful shop-
keeper, the policeman, the bank
teller and, of course, the teacher
as the enemy 'because he repre-
sents the power structure."
Hechinger declared that "in such
irrationality it matters little that

the whites who work in the Negro
ghettoes and their schools are so
often Jews only because the Jews
were among the last to rise from
their own ghettoes."
He noted that "Some Jewish
teachers who have worked hard
to improve the lot of their pupils,
black or white, and who under-
standably resent some Negroes'
indifference to the long years of
Jewish suffering, are probably be-
ing driven into a position that
makes them appear to be anti-
Negro in reply. But it should not
be too surprising that anti-Semi-
tism, along with anti-white racism,
breeds in the poverty and ignor-
ance pent up in Negro slums."
