Toynbee Rebuked

by Dr. Albright

Prof. William F. Albright, who
was in Jerusalem recently to re-
ceive an award as a "Worthy of
Jerusalem," had interesting opin-
ions on the views of the historian
Arnold Toynbee in which Israel's
doom was predicted.
Commenting on the anti-Jewish
views of Toynbee, whose antagon-
ism to Israel made him a welcome
guest in Arab countries, Dr. Al-
bright said:
"Great men have their weak-
nesses: Arnold Toynbee's is that
he Is a Victorian romanticist who
sees Arabs not as human beings
but as heroes of Romance, chil-
dren of nature and Arabian Nights'
characters rolled into one.
"If anything is absolute non-
sense, it is Toynbee's idea that Is-
rael originated in national fana-
ticism and separatism." He added
that if Israel had not remained
steadfast in its faith during the
thousand years after Moses, the
"world would have been the
As Moslems view the Old and
New Testaments as forgeries, said
Prof. Albright, he therefore saw
no common ground in the foresee-
able future between Moslem ;.nd
Christian-Jewish scholars. "This is
very regrettable and we must find
some way to bridge it."

Russia Fails to Keep
Jewish Organizations Out
of Economic, Social Body


(a totally new concept in automobile retailing)

is open
for business.

Soviet attempt to deprive the Co-
ordinating Board of Jewish Organi-
zations (COJO) of accredited status
with the United Nations Economic
and Social Council has failed.
A resolution introduced by the
Soviet Union in the Council's com-
mittee on nongovernmental organi-
aztions that COJO be given no
status at all was defeated by a
vote of 5-4 with two absentions.
Bulgaria. Libya, and Indonesia
supported the Soviet resolution,
which was opposed by Britain.
France. the United States, Urug-
uay and Tanzania.
India and Turkey abstained.
It was decided to record that

the committee had been unable
to take action on the Jewish or-
ganization at this time.

COJO represents Bnai Brith, the
Board of Deputies of British Jews
and the South African Jewish
Board of Deputies. The Russians
have been extremely critical of
the Jewish nongovernmental or-
ganizations which have spoken out
against the Soviet treatment of the
Jewish minority in Russia. They
are being supported by the Arab
states in their efforts to bar the
Jewish organizations from speak-
ing before UN bodies.
