Settlement on West Bank
THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS Dayan Urges Integration of Arabs, Creation of New

Launch $200,000,000 Bond Drive

TEL AVIV (JTA)—Defense Min-
ister Moshe Dayan has called for
the economic and legal integration
of the occupied Arab territories
with Israel. He also called for the
establishment of a string of Israeli
settlements in the mountainous re-
gions of the West Bank.
Gen. Dayan, who made his re-
marks at a meeting of physicians
and scientists here, said that con-
trary to the views of some of his
cabinet colleagues, such moves
would enhance rather than ham-
per the prospects for eventual
peace. Gen. Dayan stressed that
Israel must create new "facts" in
the occupied territories. Egyptian

and Jordanian laws still in force
in the Gaza Strip and the West
Bank must be abrogated and re-
placed with Israeli law, he declar-
ed, in order to symbolize the
changed situation.


A campaign to sell $200,000,000 in Israel Bonds this year as a
"living tribute" to the late Prime Minister Levi Eshkol was launched
at the inaugural conference for Israel Bonds in Miami. An unprece-
dented total of $61,124,000 in Israel Bonds were sold to initiate the 1969
drive to provide funds for every phase of the country's economic de-
velopment. Shown at the conference dais (from left) are: standing,
Louis II.. Boyar, chairman of the board of governors of the Israel
Bond Organization; Dr. Joseph J. Scawartz, vice president, and Col.
Jacob M. Arvey, honorary chairman for Chicago; seated, Ambassador
and Mrs. Itzhak Rabin of Israel and Samuel Rothberg, Israel Bond
national campaign chairman.

Sirhan, the 24-year-old Jordanian
immigrant who has admitted the
assassination of Sen. Robert F.
Kennedy, cursed the "God-damned
Zionists" of America from the wit-
ness stand.
He accused them of having sent
"$360,000,000 to Israel tax-free"
while there was unemployment and
hunger in this country and at a
time when President Johnson was
bringing home soldiers and urging
Americans to stay home in order
to save dollars.
He said that when provoked he
could kill Lyndon Johnson, Arthur
J. Goldberg or anyone else sup-
porting the Israeli cause. The out-
burst came during young Sirhan's
second day on the witness stand in
his own defense.
Chief Defense Counsel Grant D.
Cooper permitted him to vent his
rage to substantiate the defense
claim that Sirhan's passion about
the occupation of his homeland by
Israel led to the fatal shooting of
Sen. Kennedy last June 5.
Sirhan, who began by answer-
ing counsel Cooper's questions
quietly, launched into a tirade
when asked about events in the
Middle East. "I wanted a place of
my own where the people spoke
my own language, where they ate
my own food, where they shared
my own politics, where I could
have something I could identify
with as a Palestinian and as an
Arab," he said.
He claimed he had admired the
late Sen. Kennedy until he saw
him on television helping the
Israelis celebrate their independ-
ence and became so enraged he
wanted to kill him. "You must
remember, sir," he said to his
attorney, "Zionism is more

inimical to me than Communism
is to you."
He said he heard a radio an-
nouncement that Sen. Kennedy had
formally committed himself to
sending 50 Phantom jet fighter-
bombers to Israel. "I recognized
that Robert F. Kennedy was not
the good guy he was made out to
be," Sirhan said.
The young Arab also testified
that he was enraged by a magazine
photograph of jubilant Israeli
troops on the banks of the Suez
Canal in June 1967. "If I saw those
guys (the soldiers) in person I
would have killed them," he said,
"because they were the winners,
they could tell Nasser what to do."
Sirhan said that he read "every-
thing I could get my hand on" per-
taining to the Middle East conflict,
mainly material put out by the
Arab Information Center, a propa-
ganda agency supported by the
Arab League, as well as the Bnai
Brith Messenger, a Jewish weekly
published in Los Angeles.

N.Y. Bill Requires Police
to Prove Sabbath Violated

ALBANY (JTA)—The State As-
sembly has passed a bill that
would correct defects in the Fair
Sabbath Law by placing the bur-
den of proof for alleged Sabbath
business violations on the police
officer who makes the charge. The
bill, sponsored by State Senator
Jeremiah B. Bloom and Assembly-
man Georga A. Cincotta, both
Brooklyn Democrats, now goes to
the Senate.
The bill is intended to eliminate
the necessity of a court appear-
ance by a Sabbath observer charg-
ed with breaking the law. It re-
quires the police officer to inquire
whether the alleged violator is en-
titled to exemption for observing
a day of rest other than Sunday
before issuing a summons. It
places the responsibility of "prob-
able violation" on the policeman
and not on the Sabbath observer
to prove that he is entitled to ex-
emption under the Fair Sabbath
The Bloom-Cincotta bill also
spells out a day of rest other than
Sunday which it defines as from
sundown Friday to 45 minutes past
sundown Saturday.
