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

ities involved in Israel's govern-
ment affairs and those who actu-

they are gruesome and gloomy,

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
