U.S. Businessmen Told
of Growing Integration of
Occupied Lands Economy

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

NEW YORK — The president of
the Israel Manufacturers Associa-
tion told an audience of American
businessmen Tuesday that the
economy of the occupied Arab ter-
ritories was moving toward inte-
gration with Israel's economy.
Zalman Susayeff, addressing a
luncheon of the American-Israel
Chamber of Commerce and Indus-
try, said that large amounts of
Israel-made goods such as textiles,
furniture and plastics were pur-
chased in the occupied territories
and that the "new territories ex-
port to Jordan and other coun-
tries." He added that about 4 per
cent of the total work force now
employed in Israeli industry is
from the occupied areas.
Susayeff said the purchases of
Israeli goods by the Arabs account-
ed in part for the increased pro-
uctivity of Israel's industry.
er factors, he said, were in-
cke_csed exports, defense needs and
increased consumption.

He noted that Arab workers in
Arab industries in the occupied
territories increased three-fold
during the year.

Susayeff, who was deputy min-
ister of commerce and industry
from 1953 to 1955, reported that
Israel's exports had increased 11-
fold since 1955. Industrial produc-
tion in 1968 rose by 28 per cent and
some $500,000,000 in comparison
with 1967. Susayeff said Israelis
expected a rise in industrial pro-
duction of 18 per cent in 1969.

the U.S. Consulate intervened to
save it.
(Damage to the Hebrew Uni-
versity cafeteria by infiltrators was
reported Thursday morning. Five
were hurt by the time bomb. In
another incident, one was injured
in the Ramallah Bank).

Israel police announced that
a Christian minister and a law-
yer, both from Ramallah, and a
East JerusaleM surgeon have
been arrested in connection
with the bombing investigation.

The minister, Rev. Elia , Khader
Khalil Khouri, 47, of St. Andrews
Church, was being held as a liai-
son with Arab extremists in the
Gaza Strip. He is militantly anti-
Israel and has refused to hold
mass in his church since the Six-
Day War as a sign of protest,
police said.
The surgeon, Dr. Nabih Am-
mar, was also linked with terror-_,
ists and is believed to have used
the "welfare hospital" in the Abu/
Tour quarter of East Jerusalemu
as a center for sabotage activity.
The Ramallah lawyer detained
was identified as Bashir Khairy.
Police said the investigation of
the bombing has led to the ex-
posure of two illegal underground
organizations on the West Bank,
one political and the other terror-
ist. They said that a total of 70
persons have been arrested so far
and that charge sheets were being
prepared for presentation in court.
