'Between You
... and Me'

(Copyright 1969; JTA Inc.)


INSIDE ISRAEL : Israel is naturally very much alert to border
provocations. Israeli armed forces keep a watchful eye on the enemy
at the Suez Canal, on the Jordanian frontier and on the Syrian border.
But even greater alertness is now required against enemy agents inside
the country.

E A L T O R S . . .

Israel faces
now a situation in Which the Arab pOpulation in the •
country—especially in the territories
acquired after the Six-Day War—
is openly hostile. Not only are there Arab terrorists penetrating into '
- Israel from the neighboring enemy lands, there are terrorists on the
inside. This is true not only with regard to the Arab population in the
Gaza area, where acts of sabotage take place almost daily, but also in •
other areas, including the Old City of Jerusalem.

You travel on the roads in Israel and you come across police road-
blocks on every-
road, whether one that leads from an Arab-populated
- section or one that lies between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, between Tel
Aviv and Haifa, between Haifa and any Israeli settlement in the
Galilee. Policemen in groups stand at these highway posts and check
any car or truck that provokes suspicion. They check drivers' licenses,
examine bundles. ask questions and sometimes detain suspicious look-
ing Arabs for examination even when they ride on donkeys or are on -

We believe the dedicated profes-

person is consumed with a desire
to serve his fellow man and is
guided in all things by the golden
rule. So strongly does -he under-
stand his responsibilities. He may
work. untiringly for weeks, sus-
tained not by money alone, but by
the knowledge of a service well
done. He loves his work -- He
loves his fellow man more.

Caution against the inside enemy — the Arab saboteur and the
member of a terrorist gang—is high on Israel's priority list. You can
fight the Arab terrorist groups when they are concentrated in Jordan
or Syria or Lebanon and shell Israeli settlements across the border.
- You can bomb them out of their positions or even attack them in hand-
to-hand clashes. Not so simple is, however, the fight with the individual
terrorist inside Israel. You have to discover him first.

Individual Arab terrorists in Israel usually work either singly or in
groups of two. What helps them to penetrate into Jewish crowds is the
fact that a large part of the Jewish population in Israel is composed of
immigrants from Moslem countries who look like Arabs and speak
Hebrew with the same accent as native Arabs do. In a crowd you can
hardly distinguish between an Arab who speaks Hebrew and a young
Jewish immigrant from any of the North African countries. Therein
- lid the difficulty in keeping. aneye on Israel's most dangerous enemy
inside the country, even though every Jews in Israel is on the alert.




B. F. "Bud" Chamberlain


THE ENEMY WITHIN: Alert against Arab terrorist activities in-
side Israel are not only the police and military, but also taxi drivers,
doormen in theaters and moving picture houses, -salesmen and sales-
girls in stores, and even children in schools.

A Tel Aviv mother tells me proudly that her nine-year-old son is
a "captain" of a team of children who watch out against possible Arab
terrorist acts in his school. What is his function? He and the team of
pupils whom he heads are to report to school every morning 15 minutes
ahead of the other pupils. They are then to make their round on the
premises of the school to see whether anything that looks suspicious
has been placed on the school grounds overnight. Suspicious material
can be a simple paper-bag that the team had not noticed yesterday
when inspecting the school premises. It can be a tin can. It can be a
pencil that may be filled with explosives instead of lead. It can even be
a small coin. The Arab saboteurs have been trained in the technique
of sabotage even to a point of placing explosives inside split coins.

When somthing "new and suspicious" is found by the team on the
school grounds, the children are instructed not to touch it but to report
it to one of the school teachers who is trained to dismantle explosives.
If the teacher finds the object really suspicious. he calls the police who
immediately send demolition experts to the school to handle the matter.

In Jerusalem. as well as in any other city in Israel, women enter-
ing moving picture houses are ordered at the door to open their bags
for inspection. Why? Why should Jewish women be subjected to sus-
picion? The answer given to me was simple. You cannot tell the differ-
ence between an Arab woman• and a darkish Jewish woman who immi-
grated from North Africa, all women—including European-horn women
—are told to open their handbags. Sometimes a simple lip-stick can be,
filled with explosives.

Civilian car owners are similarly keeping an eye on suspicious
cars. When they notice that a car is not properly parked, 'they imme-
diately telephone the police.. A •car that is not properly parked can lead
to Arab terrorists who don't know the parking regulations and who
might have come to the city carrying explosives.

All in all, one gains the impression now in Israel that the entire
Jewish population is on the lookout against • the internal enemy—the
Arab saboteur and terrorist. This may indicate a feeling of nervousness
to a certain extent, but it is not. It expresses the determination of the
nation as a whole to defeat the Arab terrorists inside the country just •
as the Arab armies are kept in check outside the country. •

Arabs in Israel—and there is no use of closing eyes to their growing
hostility—sense the suspicion which they arouse. That is why so few of
them are now seen in the Jewish section of Jerusalem: None of them
are seen any more in Tel Aviv in their long robes admiring the lobbies
of the - big ;hotels and the front windows of stores. They used to flock to
the Jewish part of Jerusalem in the early weeks after the city was
reunited. They discovered a new world there. Now they are either being
terrorized by their own gangs and do not fraternize with Jew's, or they
are simply afraid to visit Jewish localities to avoid suspicion:
