JERUSALEM (MS) — Open-
ings are available in Israel in the

surplus of specialists in the hu-
manities and in the social sciences,
according to Arieh Goral, director
of Israel's ministry of labor.
Goral, in an interview with the
student paper Campus, noted that

Buckley a Delightful Opponent,
His Views Interesting to Know
William F. Buckley, Jr., is a de-
lightful fellow. He is good to listen
to, he is charming—he is ultra-
conservative. He has written a book
—"The Governor Listeth—A Book
of Inspired Political Observations."
published by Putnam—and it is
worth reading to get the views of
a critic who has much to say about
American and world affairs.
He believes that "the assassina-
tion of George Lincoln Rockwell
brought an end to the American
Nazi Party." Did it? He believes
that "the assassination of Faisal
brought republicanism, if that is
the word for it, to Iraq." Did it?
He makes lots of interesting
comments on many things. For
instance: "In 1936, the Olympic
games were held in Berlin, and
the government of Adolf Hitlei,
it is generally conceded, was for-
tified by the prestige of the
games. Now Poland's Communist
hierarchy, thrashing out against
the rioters, starts pogrom-talking
against the Jews, those pathetic
few who are left after Hitler's
ravages; 235 English MPs protest
anti-Semitism in the Soviet
Union. DeGaulle, Prof. Raymond
Aron insists, has renewed anti.
Semitism on a continental scale.
Would Secretary Rusk scold the
American Jew who refuses to
patronize Air France or to com-
mit his company to trading with
Poland or the Soviet Union? Or
the Gentile who wishes to support
the Jew?" (The book was written
in Rusk's days).
There is a splendid chapter on
"The Great Week — June, 1967,"
subtitled "Israel to the Rescue of
the United States," in which the
Johnson position of that month is
reviewed, the Jewish role explained
and the new confrontation with

Arabs Criticize Their
Governments, but Not
Ready to Accept Israel
INDIANAPOLIS (ZINS) — At
the recent annual convention of the
Organization of Arab Students, Dr.
Abdo Elkholi, sociology professor
at.the University of Northern Illi-
nois, criticized the lack of personal
and political freedom in much of
the Arab world.
The professor declared that it
is impossible for scentists to func-
tion in a climate of repression.
Greater personal freedom, he said,
is also a precondition to an ulti-
mate Arab victory over Israel.
He said the average Arab lacks
self-respect and trust in his lead-
ers under present conditions.
Many scientists and professionals
remain abroad in self-imposed
exile, Prof. Elkholi added.

There was agreement with Dr.
Elkholi's criticism of Arab total-
itarianism, but many deplored
the practice of self-exile. Dele-
gates argued that there was a
duty to work for change by re-
maining in one's home country.
Dr. Elkholi stated that if there
were some 10,000,000 to 20,000,000
Arabs in the United States, such
a force would counter Zionist in-
fluence. Attendance at the confer-
ence was small, not exceeding 35-
Although the group comprised
intellectual Arabs, opposed to total-
itarianism, there was no sign of
readiness to accept Israel's
legitimacy and right to exist.
Those who spoke in opposition to
their own repressive governments
continually referred to the "tem-
porary loss of Palestine."
Israel was regarded as an "ob-
stacle to Arab unity" and "an
outpost of imperialism helping to
maintain rulers such as the Shah
subject it touches. The organization
was originally founded to guard
against anti-Semitism. In recent
years it has gone in for the big-
think, taking firm positions on any
number of social issues that have
- nothing whatever to do with anti- of Iran and King Hussein."
