No Love, Only Hate in Kennett Love's
Mercilessly Anti-Israel Book on 'Suez'

Kennett Love, one-time Nev‘
York Times correspondent in the
Middle East, a UN correspondent
for several years, a research asso-
ciate on the Suez matters at Prin-
ceton where he currently resides,
couldn't possibly be an anti-
Semite. Isn't he an accomplished
Arabist who has said that in his
work on Middle East problems he
has found the Cairo Military
Archives especially rewarding?
Hasn't he been close to our cousin
the Semite Gamal Abdel Nasser?
So—he couldn't be anti-Semite if
he is so dedicated an Arabist-
Semite.
But his "Suez — The Twice-
F o u g h t War" (McGraw-Hill)
proves without a shadow of a
doubt that he is not only anti-
Israel: he is mercilessly anti-
Jewish, he is biased and he spreads
venom that makes his work the
most violent expression of dislike
for anything that sounds like
Zionism, Judaism, Israelism, lib-
ertarianism in principle for Jews.

All one need search for are his
authorities. He makes much of
Israel's enemies like Anthony
Nutting and Gen. E. L. M.
Burns. The latter, as head of the
United Nations Truce Super-
vision Organization, emerged as
one of Israel's vilest enemies
and he proved it in a book he

wrote which provided ammuni-
tion for Israel's basest haters.
For Kennett Love, Nasser is the

chief authority. Nasser is the
lover of peace and Ben-Gurion
the plotter of war. To prove his
point he even builds up a case
between Ben-Gurion and Sharett.
As if there were no room for
of opinion which
differences
existed between B-G and Sharett,
but certainly not on the basis
of Love's exploration. And Love
does not hesitate to draw upon
the Jewish writer I. F. Stone
who has suddenly begun to pro-
vide fodder for the anti-Israel

guns.
Indeed, there is no love for Is-
rael or for Jews in Kennett Love's
"Suez." He resorts to every trick
to emphasize that Israel is an
aggressor that has always plotted

war against the Arabs. And where
he mildly shows that there are
Arab terrorist acts, he plays them
down: it is always the Jew, in
whom Love has found not merely

Only Nasser Is the darling. In

"Suez" can be foreseen as a

Bible for anti - Semites and
anti-Israelis. Ile does not de-
limit the attacks on the United
States. While presenting many
important details about the
Eisenhower-Dulles roles during
the Suez war of 1956, he never-
theless is destructive insofar as
the Jewish position is concerned.

He draws upon every critic of
Israel, like Uri Avnery, who is sud-
denly one of the great Israeli jour-
nalists because he condemns Is-
rael's foreign policies.
In his review of "Suez" in the
NYTimes, Gordon Craig praised
Love as if he had made a great
contribution to a mity•and to peace,
but he does add: "The person who

Tel Aviv U. Gets Million
for Technology Center

NEW YORK (JTA)—A contri-
bution of SI million to Tel Aviv
University toward the establish-
ment of a new center for techno-
logical studies was made last week
by Leonard Rosen. president of
the American Friends of Tel Aviv
University, at that organization's
annual dinner. Rosen, a resident of
Miami, is also deputy chairman of
the university's board of governors.
Contributions of $500,000 to the
university's scholarship fund were
reported by Eugene Ferkauf of
New York, chairman of a special
leadership committee which has
been soliciting this form of support.
More than 700 friends and suppor-
ters of the Tel Aviv institution at-
tended the function at which hon-
orary fellowship awards were
made to Herman Stein and William
Levi.

Gov. Frank Licht of Rhode Is-
land, who recently visited Israel
with a party of governors, told
the assemblage that the inter-
ests of the United States in the
Middle East were tied to the sur-
vival of Israel.

demon who did not come to Pales-

From the very first p a g e,
Nasser is portrayed at once as
"no more a villain as his chief
antagonists, Ben-G u r i on and
Dayan." Zionism is defined most
ingloriously. There is a classic
sentence: "Lord Balfour, like
God, promised to one people the
country of another."

unless Israel can bring the number
of its university students up to
70,000 and triple the number of
science students, it will fall behind
the Arab states in technological
manpower. He cited the rapidly in-
creasing number of Arab students
in universities in Arab countries
and abroad and declared that "we
are no longer dealing with fela-
heen but with a generation of
young, well-educated people."

Nasser, and some readers will
doubtless feel that Love is too
kind to him and that his picture
of him as a moderate and a pacif-
ist, sinned against but never sin-
ning, is as unconvincing as his
attempt to prove that his direction
of the Sinai campaign was touched
by genius, making possible a troop
withdrawal as brilliant as that of
Dunkirk . . One can have reser-
vations about such judgments
without condoning the tactics used
against Nasser in 1956 and without
closing one's ears to Love's play
for a better understanding of the
Arab case, and particularly of the
plight of the Palestinian refugees,
than presently exists in this coun-
try."
All this shows is that Love mis-
leads the reader, that he injects
bias, and the NYTimes reviewer
for a better understanding of
leads the reader, that he injects
dominates on every page of Love's
loveless book.

All one needs do is peruse
those portions of the Love book
in which he touches upon the
United Nations decision for par-
tition and Love's comment that
in 1948 Israel had to fight for
territory upon which to be
born." How about the truth, Mr.
Love? What about Israel's fight
for _life at the time when all the
Arab states ganged up to wipe
out the Jewish settlements?
And how dare anyone, if he is
not filled wth venom and hate.
write in this fashion: "What has
'made "the struggle for Palestine
more unquenchable with every
war that Israel wins and every
square mile that she conquers is
that every new refugee furthers
the Palestinization of the Arab
world, Just as the fate of the
Jews in the Nazi Holocaust
Judaized the conscience of the
western world and made possible
the Zionist establishment of Is-
rael, so the dispossession, dis-
persion and sufferings of the
Palestinians at the hands of Is-
rael Palestinized the conscience
of the Arab world .. ."

Love mentions Na•iser's and the
general Arab threats to destroy
Israel, but this approach to a
new genocide does not seem to
have disturbed the Nasser-inspired
expert on the Middle East.

Nothing has yet been written
that could be considered more
heartless as to speak of a Judaized
era after Nazism. There are dis-
tortions in all the Love evalua-
tions. Zionism did not begin with
Herzl but with the Dispersion, and
Arabs were not dispossessed by
Jews but by their effendis who
sold them down the river.
But it is undoubtedly useless to
debate with loveless Love. All he
has written was angled, from first
page to last, through the final sen-
tence ("there will be more re-
prises before Israel gives up
Zionism or the Arabs forget thee,
O Jerusalem"), to create hatred
for Israel. There is no love in
"Suez" by Love and there is too
much in it that it not true. Beware
of this type of vicious anti-Jewish
propaganda!
