Allon Warns Syria: Stay Out of Jordan;
Arafat, Habash Reported to Be Allies

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Deputy
Premier Yigal Allon warned Syria
Sunday not to intervene in the
renewed fighting between Jordan-
ian forces and Palestinian guer-
rillas. He recalled that Syrian
forces suffered an ignominious de-
feat when they attempted to inter-
vene on the side of the guerrillas
in last September's civil war in
Jordan.
Allon said the Syrian invasion
attempt was foiled by the Jordan-
ian army, the presence of the Is-
raeli army on the borders and
American intervention in Moscow
which kept the Soviets on the side-
lines. Egyptians on the west bank
of the Suez Canal .have replaced
their observation balloons with fire-
men's ladders.

King Hussein of Jordan vowed
to restore order= in his country
after 10 days of bloody clasties
with Palestinian guerrillas. Ac-
cording to reports from Beirut,
El Fatah leader Yassir Arafat
has given orders for an all-out
campaign to topple the Hussein
regime and establish Jordan as
the main base for guerrilla act-
ivities against Israel.

Arafat, who is reportedly in
Syria, was said to have joined
forces with Dr. George Habash,
the Marxist leader of the Popu-
lar Front for the Liberation of
Palestine.
The PFLP, one - of the most ex-
treme of the Arab terrorist groups,
was responsible for a rash of
aerial hijackings last September.
Arafat was said to have linked up
with Habash in order to suppress
his rivals for power within El
Fatah ranks.
El Fatah was badly mauled in
the Jordanian civil war last Sep-
tember and its ranks were deci-
mated by mass desertions. The
image of the Palestinian guerrilla
movement has suffered and it no

longer enjoys the popular support
it once had in neighboring Arab
countries.
The Jerusalem Arabic daily Al
Kuds reported that the current
fighting in Jordan has not pro-
duced the same anti-Hussein feel-
ings that were prevalent among
West Bank Arabs during the Jor-
danian civil war. The paper said
an anti-Hussein campaign by for-
mer Mayor Hamdi Kanaan of
Nablus was a complete failure.

It's Hard to Gather
Minyan in Warsaw,
Olini Group Says

TEL AVIV (JTA)—Little more
than 4,000 Jews remain in Poland,
most of them aged and living off
meager pensions, according to a
group of Jewish immigrants who
arrived here from Poland Sunday.
They were the first group of
emigres from that country in many
months although the Warsaw au-
thorities began issuing visas en
masse to Jews nearly two years
ago.
Polish Jews numbered more than
30,000 in 1968 when a wave of offi-
cial "anti-Zionism" spread over
the country in the wake of student
unrest and thousands of Jews were
purged from their jobs. Jews emi-
grated, but mainly to nearby
Sweden and Denmark, where they
found hospitality and favorable
conditions.
Relatively few came to Israel
which was disturbing to authori-
ties here. One elderly couple that
arrived recently said there was
still a synagogue in Warsaw but it
was almost impossible to gather a
minyan for worship.

Israel Is Admired by Air Force Men

NEW YORK (JTA) — An over-
whelming majority of Israelis sup-
port their government's position in
negotiations with the Arabs, ac-
cording to a Louis Harris poll
commissioned by Time magazine
and made public in its new issue
out this week.
Harris, who conducted the poll
jointly with Public Opinion Re-
search, an Israeli firm, found that
85 per cent of Israeli Jews believe
the Meir government "is doing
all it should to negotiate a peace
treaty."
Only 7 per cent of those ques-
tioned felt the government should
be more flexible in negotiating
with the Arabs, Time reported.
