Israel Firm in Rejecting Hijackers' Blackmail
Cease Fire Considered Ended;
Jordanian Crisis Adds to Chaos
Federations Endorse $400,000,000
Increased Emergency Goal for .UJA
The Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds' executive
board, at a meeting on Sunday, unanimously endorsed the decision of
the .Jewish Agency, taken in Jerusalem two weeks ago, calling for
cancellation of all fund-raising efforts by Israeli institutions in order
to concentrate on the $400,000,000 United Jewish Appeal effort in 1971.
The - $400,000,000 drive is to be part of a billion-dollar goal that will
include $400,000,000 to be secured through the Israel Bond drive and
an additional $200,000,000 to be raised for the Keren Hayesod in all
other countries outside the United States.
The CJFWF resolution states that, "deeply stirred by the utmost
urgency of the needs in Israel" which must be met by American Jewish
communities, it is "convinced beyond all doubt that the $400,000,000 is
most urgently needed by UJA." It declares that "these are times of
crisis," that "we shall have to give more—raise more for the Israel
emergency than we have ever raised." It recognizes the urgent needs
at home, the necessity to concentrate on most important priorities and
"Israel, for its part, already-has taken the decision to stop fund
raising of various other Israeli institutions—in order to remove competi-
tive campaigns—and to help us concentrate our funds and our energies
on the United Jewish Appeal as the channel of our philanthropic aid
"In the same spirit—and for the same purpose—we have been
assured that there will be the fullest cooperation with the Israel Bond
Campaign. We must make sure that bond sales and the gifts to our
campaigns add to each other, not substitute for each other.
"We are establishing a joint committee of the United Jewish Appeal,
United Israel Appeal and our Council of Jewish. Federations, to assure
the greatest national cooperation on the national aspects of the campaign
—and the greatest help we can give our communities to raise the

Israel Prime Minister Golda Meir's visit today with President Nixon, the crisis
in Jordan, retention of 55 hostages whd were passengers on the four hijacked and
subsequently destroyed planes and the rifts among terrorists combine to place emphasis
on the developing situation that affects the Middle East's status.
,Peace is more remote than ever as a result of the collapse of cease fire negotia-
tions. Soon after Egypt's President Gamal Abdel Nasser had announced that the cease
fire had ended, a similar statement was made by Acting Israel Prime Minister Yigal
Allon, in Jerusalem, but Allon said Israel would not resume military action unless
there were provocations from Egypt, and he declared that even a temporary truce was
Meanwhile, Israel remains firm in rejecting blackmail demands from the Arab
terrorists and insists on firm action- by the community of nations of the world to
end the terror and to act firmly against the danger of renewed hijacking.-
The international pilots associations also have commenced to plan firm steps to
end hijacking, yet Israel has been penalized by suspension of flights by British Euro-
pean Airways, BOAC, Alitalia and other lines, while President Nixon's proposal that
countries that harbor hijackers be boycotted has been ignored thus far.
It has been revealed that the hijackers took $750,000 in Swiss francs, which
were to be delivered to New York, from the hijacked Swissair airliner. They secured
information about the location of the money at gunpoint from one of the plane's
