Iran Oil Pumped to Communist Bloc V is Israel Pipeline

LONDON (JTA) — Iranian oil,
pumped through Israel's Eilat-
Ashkelon pipeline, is finding its
way to Eastern European coun-
tries, among them East Germany,
the most rabidly anti-Israel mem-
ber of the Communist bloc, it was
reported here.
The Eilat-Ashkelon pipeline
bypasses the closed Suez Canal,
saving a three-week, 12,000 mile
voyage from Mid Eastern oil
fields to Europe via the Cape of
Good Hope.
(The use of the new Israeli pipe-
line to hasten the flow of oil to
Eastern Europe has been known

in Israel for several weeks but its
publication has been suppressed
by rigid censorship, the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency's Jerusalem
correspondent reported. The JTA's
correspondent said he spoke twice
to Dov Ben Drior, director of the
Trans-Asiatic Co. which controls
traffic on the Eilat-Ashkelon pipe-
line, but got no answers to his
questions. He said that Zvi Din-
stein, deputy minister of finance
who is in overall charge of oil
affairs, refused to see him.
The Sunday Times, which re-
cently broke the story here, said
the Soviet Union is fully aware

Kinneret Pollution
Poses GraveThreat

TIBERIAS—Lake Kinneret will
be a pool of undrinkable water
within five years unless some way
can be found to clear it of thou-
sands of tons of fertilized soil,
dirt, industrial waste and sewage.
With nearly all Israelis getting
at least part of their drinking
water from Kinneret, Haim Tsa-
ban, a government conservation
specialist and member of an 11-
man committee 'fighting pollution
of the lake, said "We are ap-
proaching the red line." Tourists
and picnickers have left debris
on the share; motor boats spill
oil; _dirty irrigation water, fish
pond drainage, industrial waste
and sewage flow freely into the
lake.
Nitrogen and phosphorus feed
algae, not only giving the water
a foul taste and smell but also
threatening to upset the natural
chemical balance of the water,
depriving fish of oxygen.
Tsaban said the anti-pollution
board wants farms to treat their
organic waste water and reuse it
for irrigation instead of dumping
it into the lake. But the process
would cost enormous sums. ,
For starters, a dike now under
construction will stop erosion into
the lake. A cleaning crew circles
the area every week.

Red Cross Turns Down
Magen David Adom
for Insisting on Ethblem

Friday, Dstagabar 111, 1970-19

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

of the movement of Communist
bloc"oll through the Israeli pipe-
line and has no objections.
Noting that the Russian supply
network is inadequate to meet the
urgent oil requirements of its Euro-
pean satellites, the Times stated:
"Over the past two years Russia
has given the go-ahead to Eastern
bloc countries to import oil from
any alternative sources."
The Times said the principal
destination of tankers loading oil
at Ashkelon and Haifa are two re-
fineries in Italy; one in Rijeka,
Yugoslovia; and one at Constanza,
Romania. At least one cargo of
oil shipped through Israel has
reached East Germany, the Times
said.
The paper said Iran was happy
with the arrangement because it
establishes its nationally-owned
Iranian Oil Co. as a major dis-
ributor in its own right. The
bulk of the oil produced by Iran
has been distributed heretofore
by the Western firms that drill
it.
Italy, too, is benefiting, the Times
said. Its major oil sources have
been the fields of Libya and the
Trans-Arabian Pipeline (Tapline)
but supplies to the West from those
sources have been severely cut
back owing to a price war.
The Times believes that if the
Suez Canal was to reopen, the
Israeli pipeline would be bank-
rupt overnight. "The conclusion
must be that Israel — and increas-
ingly the giants of the oil world —
do not expect the canal to re-
open," the Times said.

JOHANNESBURG — Its emblem
is the one issue over which recog-
nition of Magen David Adorn as
the official red cross of Israel has
been denied.
Israel has said that she is willing
to accept the Red Cross emblem,
provided only that one emblem be
used throughout the world. At
present, eight countries display
the red crescent and one, Persia,
the red lion and sun.
On a number of occasions, the
Magen David Adorn in Cape Town
has applied for official recogni-
tion by the International Red
Cross.
Grounds for refusal were that
the red Shield of David would
cause confusion.
Twenty Red Cross members
voted for Israel and 21 against,
with six abstaining. Neverthelels,
Magen David Adom relations with
the International Red Cross, of
which it is not an official mem-
ber, have been excellent.
