Nasser Complains of 'Israeli Espionage'

(Continued From Page 22)
days. Addressing the first meeting
of the congress on Monday, Minis-
ter of Justice Mohammed Abu
Nusseir charged that an Egyptian
hired by Israeli agents was respon-
sible for student rioting in the cit-
ies of Mansoura and Alexandria
that led to the closing of Egyptian
institutions of higher learning in
November.
Nasser on Thursday repeated an
old threat — that if it takes the
lives of a million Arabs Israel
will be punished.
The Iraqis reacted to the puni-
tive action by Israel by shouting
"Down with the Americans."
Israeli spokesmen called the
latest Nasser charge about Is-
raeli espionage as being utterly
ridiculous.
Eban returned Tuesday from
his brief visit to Cyprus where
he met with Dr. Jarring.
Eban met with Archbishop
Makarios, the president of Cyprus,
Foreign Minister Spiro Kyprianou,
and with two leaders of the
Turkish community, Fadil Kut-
ehuk, vice president of the
Turkish community, and Raouf
Denktash, chairman of the Turkish
Communities Association.
Italian 'Peace-Feeler'
Mission on Middle East
Tour Arrives in Cairo
ROME (JTA)—A "peace-feeler"
mission of two high ranking Ital-
ian diplomats with backgrounds in
Middle Eastern affairs was in
Cairo this week on the first leg of
a tour that will take them to Is-
rael, Jordan, Yemen and Saudi
Arabia, the foreign ministry an-
nounced today. The purpose of
their tour, the ministry said, was
to sound out Middle Eastern gov-
ernments on peace possibilities and
support for the mission of Gunnar
V. Jarring that would give it new
Impetus. The diplomats are Carlo-
perrone Capona, deputy director-
general for political affairs, for-
mer ambassador to Damascus and
head of the foreign ministry's
Middle Eastern desk, and Umberto
Bozzini, former minister of the Ital-
ian Embassy in Cairo. They were
to meet with Mahmoud Fawzi,
President Nasser's political ad-
viser, and with Foreign Minister
Mahmoud Riad. Italy has cordial
relations with Israel and the Arab
states.

Mandelbaum Gate St.
Recalls Crossing Point

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Mandel-
Gate Street was dedicated here
this week to perpetuate the mem-
ory of Mandelbaum Gate—for 19
years the official crosspoint be-
tween Israeli and Jordanian-oc-
cupied Jerusalem and a world
symbol of the divided city.
The gate was named for Imche
Mandelbaum, whose house was the
last outpost of Jewish resistance
near the Old City in Israel's 1948
war for independence. The building
was demolished by Jordanians
when the Arab Legion tried to
force its way into Jewish Jerusa-
lem in defiance of a truce that
both sides had accepted.
Mandelbaum Gate for two dec-
ades thereafter was the friontier
post through which thousands of
tourists and pilgrims moved be-
tween Israel and Jordan. It gave
its name to a best-selling novel by
British authoress Muriel Spark.
Mandelbaum Gate Street is locat-
ed near the square where Mandel-
baum's house stood.
