a Reality in Occupied
Lands, Report Indicates
TEL AVIV (JTA)—The military
government summed up three years
of Israeli occupation of Arab terri-
tories and concluded that Jews and
Arabs can coexist and work in
The report was issued on the
third anniversary of the 1967 war
in which Israeli forces occupied
East Jerusalem, the west bank of
the Jordan, the Golan Heights, Ga-
za Strip and the entire Sinai Penin-
According to the military gov-
ernment's report, 30,000 Arabs
from the occupied territories are
now working at jobs in Israel
Some 26,000 Arabs from neigh-
boring countries vacationed with
friends and relatives on the West
Bank last summer, compared to
16,000 the year before.
Summing up the military aspects
of the occupation, the report dis-
closed that 378 Israelis were killed
or wounded in the occupied terri-
tories since the end of the 1967
war. The dead number 43.
During the same period, Israel
suffered 2,200 frontline casualties
including 528 dead.
Arab Gains on West Bank Balanced Against Persisting Conflict in M. E.
NEW YORK (JTA)—Israel has
gone a long way toward establish-
ing a modus vivendi with Pales-
tinian Arabs on the West Bank
and Gaza. Nearly $30,000,000 is
budgeted annually for the civil
administration of the territories.
According to Herbert Krosney,
writing from Jerusalem in the
June 15 edition of the monthly
magazine, The Nation, sizeable
loans and Israel expertise have
benefited Arab agricultural and
Industrial enterprises and if the
Arabs don't "suddenly love the
Jews" they have for the most part
chosen normalcy and a working
relationship with the Israelis.
But beneath the surface, the
seemingly endless Middle East con-
flict persists, reflecting the claims
of two peoples for the same land.
Krosney, an author and former
producer of documentary films on
Israel for National Educational te-
levision, noted that Israel has em-
barked on its policy of economic
integration of the occupied territo-
ries with mixed feelings.
They don't publicize their bene-
ficial acts because, in the words
of one high government official
quoted by Krosney, "we really
want the Arabs out of here. We
want our own state. We want to
be comfortable with ourselves,
with Jews, and we don't want
to make it seem, even for them
(the Arabs) that we're doing too
much for them, that life is too
Another Israeli friend told the
writer, "Another 10 years and all
the Arabs will be looking like
Jews. You won't be able to tell
them apart. Even so, I just can't
trust them, because they must
know they have lost the land. We
have beaten them. They have a
claim to the land too. How would
you feel if you were they?"
Many Israelis acknowledge that
the Arabs have a claim to the land
although "part of the problem in
the past has been the resolute re-
fusal of the Israeli government to
admit any validity to Palestinian
nationalism," Kro s n e y wrote.
"Golda Meir does not help when
she denies even a trace of validity
. . . What right, after all, does
anyone have to define another
peoples' self recognition?"
However, the writer continued,
"It is easy enough to blame the
Jews, but what it really boils down
to is that a very pugnacious, mod-
ern 20th Century people is being
asked to find a common path with
a people still living mainly in the
distant past . . The Arab world
is still in the painful throes of com-
ing to grips with itself; possibly
the Palestinian revolution is one
of its means toward modernity .
I think the Arab is still insulted
Moslems Thank Jews' Aid
JERUSALEM (JTA)—The Jew-
ish Agency office here received a
report that the Moslem community
of West Germany had expressed
thanks to the West German Jewish
community for contributing 10,000
German marks for the victims of
the recent earthquake in Turkey.

"The Jew shows the Arab what
he has failed to achieve.
"The existence of the Jessv forces
the Arab to look at his own so-
ciety. Certainly the Jew on his
part, must concede to the Arab
the rights of political man which
have become such an important
part of our century," Krosney
