pledged, would be liberated. Asked
if he could be sure that Egypt
would not be defeated again, he
replied "We defeird our territory,

in this context." He said he didn't

Benjamin Welles reported from
Washington in the New York Times
that President Johnson has been
rebuffed in his approaches to the
Soviet Union for a curb on arms
shipments to the Middle East and,
as a result, "Mr. Johnson is now
expected to permit the sale of 50
F-4 Phantom jets to Israel before
the end of the year."
According to Welles, the Soviets
replied to the President's proposal
that it would cooperate only when
there is "peace" between the Arab
states and Israel — presumably !
along Arab lines.
Welles reported that delivery of
the jets, which were requested by
Israel's Prime Minister Levi Eshkol
at his meeting with President John-
son in Texas last January, will be
authorized once the Presidential
elections are over and the trans-
action can be divorced from local
The Sunday Times report con-
tradicted a report in the New

York Times Sept. 15 that Presi-
dent Johnson had decided not to
sell the planes to Israel. White
House sources denied that report
and cited the President's state-
ments after Eshkol's visit in
which he promises to keep Is-
rael's defense needs "under ac-
tive and sympathetic" review in
the light of all relevant factors,
including the shipment of arms
"by others" to the area.
"The Soviet government's con-
tinuing refusal to cease rearming
Israel's enemies is now a matter
of grave concern here, government
sources said," according to Welles.
In Jerusalem, Eshkol said in an
interview with the newspaper Ma-
ariv that he believes President
Johnson will supply Israel with
Phantom jets. Eshkol said that if
he does not do so before the Pres-
idential election, he will do so
afterward. "President Johnson is
a strong personality who never
breaks his pr omise s," Eshkol
The prime minister also advo-
cated the continuation of the pres-
ent government of national unity.
Regarding his relations with De-
fense Minister Gen. Moshe Dayan,
he said that he believes Gen. Dayan
would continue serving in a cab-
inet headed by him after the elec-
tions just as Gen. Dayan is doing

Anti-Semitism Reassessed
by Jewish, Christian Leaders

Protestant and Catholic clergy-
