of the American Jew," charged he

anti-Israeli Arab, and on the other
by a "pro-Arab Jew" who was
willing to make uncalled for con-

reality," Rabbi Miller asserted,
"is that Israel has won a war from
the Arabs and they refuse to lie

"Upward M. Squadron, co-chair-
Esau of the AJCongress' govern-

approaCh to the issues was "in-

to the establishment of a Jewish
state was "unmatched by any
other person of Jewish extrac-

Squadron alleged the Arabs won't

Not every place in Israel
is mentioned in the Bible.

You probably think about going to Israel
for sentimental reasons.
And why not?
It is the place where all those wonderful
Bible stories actually took place.
And it is the treasured homeland of a
people who were homeless for nearly 2,000
So in our country sentiment plays a big
role. But not the only one.

Well, it you're planning a vacation in
What about the Israel that never gets
the Islands, or anywhere for that matter,
mentioned in the Bible?
The Israel of luxury Mediterranean think about it.
And while you're at it, think about our
resort-hotels, fashionable health spas, and
new low winter and summer rates.
golf courses?
Spend a week soaking up our sentiment
Or the Israel of fancy supper clubs and
loud discotheques that go until all hours and spend a week soaking up our sun.

Heaven knows,we could use the publicity.
