Kiesinger Warns of Middle East Danger
to World Peace, Welcomes Bond With Israel

BONN (JTA) — West German
Chancellor Kurt Georg Kiesinger
warned that "Any war in the
Middle East carries in itself the
danger of becoming a world war"
and said that whether it did or
not depended "on that old riddle,
will the Soviet Union run the risk
or will Moscow refrain from
action?" He added that "Russia
has always left the way open to
pull back when a general war
seemed imminent."
In an exclusive interview with
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency's
West Germany correspondent
Alfred Wolfmann, the chancellor
said be had "no doubt that the
smouldering Middle East crisis
should be viewed in the context
of what happened in Czecho-
slovakia and of the new Soviet
foreign policy generally."
In reply to a question about the
Soviet naval build-up in the
Mediterranean, the Chancellor
said it was impossible to know
what the Russians had in mind
there, "but it is clear that their
relationship with Yugoslavia has
changed."
Chancellor Kiesinger emphasiz-
ed that any normalization of rela-
tions" between West Germany and
any Arab state would not be at
the expense of Israel.
He said it was "premature for
Germany to offer herself as a
mediator between Israel and the
Arab states, but we would not miss
a chance to mediate if it offered
itself to us—that would be a mis-
sion we would gladly accept."
Dr. Kiesinger said relations be-
tween West Germany and Israel
"have been undergoing a welcome
revolution." He attributed this to
"the reaction of the German peo-
ple to the Six-Day War, which was
the turning point." He said Ger-
mans "displayed a real sense of
participation. It was all emotion
that erupted suddenly."
Dr. Kiesinger replied to a ques-
tion about his meeting with former
Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-
Gurion at the funeral of the late
Chancellor K o n r a d Adenauer,
lauding Ben-Gurion as "one of the
most remarkable personalities of
our time" and saying that "In the
craving for world peace, the
Israeli and (President) de Gaulle
show similar insight."
Dr. Kiesinger said, with refer-
ence to the European Common
Market, that on numerous occa-
sions he had instructed the West
German representative to support
Israel's application for associa-
tion, "with persistence, if needed."
Referring to the reputedly neo-

Nazi National Democratic Party
(NPD), he said the best way to
get rid of it was by democratic
means in an election.
Meanwhile, in Tel Aviv, a
member of the Knesset resigned
his seat Dec. 4 criticizing the
government's decision to send a
parliamentary delegation on a
good will visit to West Germany
next spring.
Prof. Dov Sadan, of the Mapai
faction of the Israel Labor Party,
said that if a government that en-
joys a majority in Parliament can
decide on a mission to West Ger-
many it should "let the ministers
go but not members of the Knes-
set."
Prof. Sadan said be had wanted
to resign for some time but heeded
his party's request that he remain.
adding "This was the last straw."
Nine visiting Israeli journalists
joined 10 West German newsmen
at a seminar that opened in Bad
Godesberg to discuss matters of
common interest. The Israelis ar-
rived on the inaugural flight of
Lufthansa, the German national
airline, which has just established
regular flights to Israel.
West Germany's Minister of
Justice Gustav Heinemann ex-
pressed concern to the group
that some already convicted
Nazi war criminals may get
amnesties if the statute of
limitations on war crimes pro-
secutions goes into effect as-
scheduled at the end of next
year. The seminar was also ad-
dressed by Minister of Interior
Ernst Benda.
Dr. Heinemann, who has long
advocated abolition of the statute
of limitations, said current war
crimes investigations could not
possibly be completed by the end
of 1969 or even after next year
although 50 state prosecutors are
working at the Ludwigsburg cen-
tral investigations office and 300
others are sifting evidence else-
where in the Federal Republic.
He noted that no statutes of
limitations on war crimes exist in
Austria, Italy or in the English-
speaking countries. Asked about
the light sentences that many for-
mer Nazis convicted of mass mur-
der have received in West Ger-
man courts, the justice minister
said they were not only the fault
of judges since the latter must
consult with juries, which have an
important role in determining
sentences.
In reply to another question, Dr.
Heinemann said that war crim-
inals convicted at the Auschwitz
trials are still at large because

$17,000,009 Terminal Building, Largest
in World, Is Under Way in Tel Aviv

1h,l, AVIV—The world's largest
bus. terminal; including shops and
movie theaters on its five levels,
is under construction here and is
expected to be opened at the end
of 1971.
The $17,000,000 structure will re-
place an inadequate terminal built

in the early 1940s. It will have both
local and out-of-town platforms,
which will eliminate the need for
some 60 small out-of-town stations
on streets adjacent to the terminal.
Simha Kaljuski, director of the
municipal traffic department, said
some 10,000 buses a day arrive at
or leave the present terminal. Its
six platforms were designed to
handle 60,000 passengers a day,
but 500,000 are using it.
Partners in the venture are
Arie Pilz, a private builder;
Egged, the interurban bus co-
operative; and Solel Boneh, the
contracting company owned by
Ilistadrut, the labor federation.
With slightly more than 2,500,000
square feet, the terminal will out-
rank New York's Port Authority
terminal building by 1,500,000
square feet.
An air-conditioned, glass-enclos-
ed core of shops, offices and rec-
reation places are expected to
bring in revenue. The bus com-
panies will pay rent for use of
the station facilities. Movie thea-
ters, a sauna, and possibly an ice
skating rink are planned for pas-
sengers' diversion.
A special expressway will link
the terminal with the highways

their appeals are pending. Until
the appeals are decided, the de-
fendants are not considered to
have been convicted, he said.
Benda said he did not share the
belief of many West German poli-
tical observers that the extreme
right-wing National Democratic
Party (NPD) was on the decline
as a result of its poor showing in
recent local elections. He predict-
ed that the reputedly neo-Nazi
party would win more than 5 per
cent of the vote required for
entering the Bundestag (lower
house) in next year's general elec-
tions.
In Dortmund, a former chief of
police went on trial Sunday on
charges of having ordered the
shooting of 3,000 Jews in Riga,
Latvia, between 1941 and 1942.
Gunter Tabbert was removed
from his police post in 1952 and
has been free on bail since 1955.
One hundred witnesses from the
United States, Canada, Australia,
Israel and the Soviet Union are
expectedly to testify.
West Germany's largest political
party, the Christian Democratic
Union, apologized in a letter to
the World Jewish Congress for an
electoral alliance that some of its
members arranged with the Na-
tional Democratic Party in local
elections earlier this year.
A letter received from the office
of Dr. Bruno Heck, general secre-
tary of the CDU, described the al-
liance as "an unfortunate blun-
der" and said that disciplinary
proceedings are under way to ex-
pel the party members respon-
sible. The letter was a response to
a WJCongress resolution express-
ing concern over the CDU alliance
with the NPD.

In a million people there are a
thousand thinkers, and in a thou-
sand thinkers there is one self-

Greek Orthodox Liturgy in Israel Ordered Purged

HAIFA—The new head of a
Greek Orthodox community in
Israel said Tuesday that he or-
dered all passages offensive to
Jews removed from liturgical
books.
Archbishop Joseph Raya, who
came from Birmingham, Ala., last

month, ordered the deletion of all
references that the Jews caused
Jesus to suffer. He also changed
the date of the Easter celebration
in Israel to coincide with celebra-
tions by Eastern churches "as
a gesture of interdenominational
good will and friendship."
