Harman Defines Israel's Rights to Self-Defense

(Continued from Page 1)
that Israel intends to protect her-
self with her own means, without
calling upon outside military as-
sistance. "We want to protect our-
selves by our own blood," he
He evaluated the present situa-
tion as indicating a continuing
armistice, with Israel, embattled,
determined to resist aggression, in
the hope that "it will be possible
for us eventually to avoid war."
It was evident that the emi-
nent guest speaker was deeply
affected by the role of the stu-
dents in Israel who are ready
to serve in the country's defense
but who do not idealize war.
"There is no trace on the part
of our youth of idealizing the
situation," he stated. "They don't -
like it We are not a militaristic
people-. They don't like killing.
But they are ready to defend
without posturing about it or to
make an ideal of it."
Harman made it clear that Is-
rael is determined not to be pushed
into another situation like that of
1957, when the trops withdrew from
He reminded his audience that

in the armistice agreement of
1949 there were signed pledges
for not only a cease fire but also
an aim of eventual peace. "It's
not true that Arabs never sat
with ns," he declared. "When
they signed the agreements with
us in 1949_ it was to be a step
towards peace. But they kept
conducting a guerrilla war

against us as a curtain in an
effort to destroy Israel."
He charged that Nasser, in his
avowed support of the El Fatah,
negates the public statements of
desiring to recognize Israel if
Israel withdraws her forces from
presently-held territories, and he
explained how a withdrawal by
Israel would immediately subject
the state to possible destruction
by the enemies surrounding her,
with the arms supplied by Russia.
He ridiculed the false claims of
"recognizing Israel" and asserted:
"I exist in Israel and I don't need
anyone's recognition of it. What
is needed is that Nasser shall have
peace with us, not hostile rela-
"We won't do Nasser the plea-
sure to permit him to move his
military forces close to us on a

verbal statement of good will

while he gives support to the
terrorist groups that deny the


existence of our country,"

he said. "The cease fire was

will require many casualties, but
it is the only way of assuring sur-
vival and Israel's existence.
Sam Frankel reported at the
meeting on the progress of the
campaign and on the accomplish-

agreed upon and that's where
we stay within the context of
secure borders."

Harman was introduced by
Richard Sloan. Pledges were
called for by Max Shaye, Louis
Grossman and Milton J. Miller. Dr.
Leon Fram gave the invocation.
