This map appears in 'if Israel Lost the War" as an indication; of
what could happen if the Arabs had a free hand in the Middle East,
with the inevitable result described by the authors that there would
be a total devastation.

Woe unto Israel and Israelis if
the war had been won by the
Arabs! Three Newsweek associate
editors who studied conditions at
first hand during the Six-Day War
paint a gruesome picture of what
could have happened, what would
happen if Israel lost.
In "If Israel Lost the War,"
published by Coward McCann (200
Madison, NY16), the three writers
describe events, point to personal-
ities involved in Israel's govern-
ment affairs and those who actu-
ally played important roles in 1967
at the United Nations, in the capi-
tals of the major powers, as well
as the chief commanders and
political leaders in the Arab coun-
tries.
The basic happenings are re-
Viewed here, except that the auth-
Ors deal with the negatives, with
What might have happened, with
what could have occurred had the
Arabs struck first and then there
would have begun the wholesale
massacre.
Thus we have a picture of dev-
astation, rape, murder, orgies re-
sulting from passionate resort to
tyranny stemming from a triumph

by those who had been deprived of
their licentiousness by an Israeli
triumph.
The accompanying map repro-
duced from the book by the three
authors—Richard Z. Chesnoff, Ed-
ward Klein and Robert Littell-
provides details of what the auth-
ors have in view and how they
judge the possibilities of a whole-
sale massacre if Israel were to be
conquered.
Their descriptions — of what
might have happened, of the ter-
ror that would sink into the hearts
of Israelis and their leaders, of the
assassinations, murders, cruelties.
at the hands of conquerors — are
fantastic. They serve to frighten at
a time when Israelis are confident;
they are gruesome and gloomy,
Israel's experiences contradict the
prognostications.
But it is interesting that the

authors, after the terror they
point to, end with a note of faith
with the afflicted turning to con-
fidence inspired by this admoni-
tion in Deuteronomy: "When
thou goest into battle against
thine enemies and seest horses
and chariots and a people more
than thou, be not afraid; for the
Lord thy God is with Thee. Let
not your hearts be faint, fear
not, and do not tremble." •
