UAW Urges Directs M.E. Talks

ATLANTIC CITY (JTA) — A
resolution urging direct talks as
the "one road to peace in the Mid-
dle East" was approved by dele-
gates to the 22nd convention here
of the United Automobile Work-
ers. The union represents almost
2,000,000 auto workers.
The resolution noted its long
friendship toward Israel as "a
democratic oasis in a troubled and
turbulent area of the world" as
well as its continued "generally
cordial contacts with the various
labor movements in the Arab
world."
The resolution warned that the
"tragedy" of the area could ex-
plode in a "direct confrontation"
of "the great powers."
The resolution urged the Big
Four to "use their separate and
combined influence to bring all
parties to the Middle East conflict
to the conference table to settle the
political issues first. It must be
made perfectly clear to Arab
leaders that guerrilla warfare can-
not and will not contribute to a
just and peaceful solution."
Declaring that Israel had a right
to "peaceful existence and recogni-
tion of its place in the family of
nations," the resolution also ex-
pressed concern for the plight of
the Palestinian refugees and urged
that a solution be found to that
plight.

The resolution denounced "the
terror tactics of El Fatah" which
it said led to "vengeance on the
innocent." The resolution also

Buddhist Influence
on Judaism Found
in Ancient Carving

PARIS — An exotic theory that
pre-Christian Jewish monastics
like the Essences of Palestine and
the Therapeutic of Alexandria
were inspired by Buddhist ideas
has found support in the recent
discovery of a 2,200-year-old in-
scription found beside what was
once a great highway through
Afghanistan.
The inscription, found last fall,
carved into a rocky hillside near
Kashrhir, was deciphered here last
month. Prof. Andre Dupont-Som-
mer, the translator, said that the
inscription proclaimed, in Ara-
maic, "This way to Tadmor," an
oasis in Syria, and advertised the
reforms of Asoka, the Buddhist
missionary emperor of India.
The professor, who work on
the Dead Sea Scrolls, sal in a
public paper that the essage
testified to Asoka's passionate
ambition to spread his Buddhist
precepts along the trade route
that led through Afghanistan to
Syria and points west, including
what is now Israel.
''For a long time," the profes-
sor said, "One had been wonder-
ing about the origin of these Jew-
ish mystic brotherhoods which had

no precedent.

Parliamentarians Propose
M.E. Peace Conditions

LONDON (JTA)—Parliamentar-

ians from 17 countries, members
of the Council of Europe's Con-
sultative Assembly, discussed in
Strasbourg, France, the possibility
of a common European policy in
the Middle East to thwart a grow-
ing Soviet threat to their interests
there. They were reported to have

set down five conditions for peace:
mutual renunciation of force,
security for Israel, freedom of ac-
cess to holy places, freedom of
navigation in international waters
and solution to the Arab refugee
problem.

called upon Arab governments

"now sheltering and arming"
guerrillas to prevent the reoc-
currence of such acts of piracy
by organized guerrilla groups;
the secretary general of the
United Nations to convene the
UN Security Council to consider
means of halting such attacks;
the world's airlines operating
flights in the Middle East "to
cancel all flights to airports in
any nation implicitly or explic-
itly sanctioning . . . such acts
of international piracy and ter-
rorism" and to the International
Airline Pilots Association "to
urge their members to . . . boy-
cott all flights to these same
nations."

The resolution added: "While
the Major Powers may be helpful
in finding a solution to the Middle
East dilemma, they cannot legiti-
mately impose such a solution on
the nations directly involved ...
This is thus far the missing ingre-
dient in the Middle East."
