TEL AVIV (JTA)—Palestinian terrorists fleeing the Jordanian army continued to
surrender this week to Israeli forces and are telling stories of atrocities by King Hus-
sein's troops. Jcrdanian army jeeps equipped with loudspeakers were driving along the
east bank of the Jordan River Tuesday urging the fedayeen not to surrender to the
Israelis, promising that "we shall not harm you."
Baghdad Radio reported Tuesday that Iraq has officially demanded the expulsion
of Jordan from the Arab League and urged the League Council in Cairo to hold an urgent
session to cons: der collective measures against Jordan to "stop its atrocious liquidation
of the Palestinian guerrilla movement."
Palestinian guerrillas crossing the Jordan with their hands in the air alleged
that Jordanian troops were gunning down unarmed Arabs, women and children. A
group of the voluntary captives answered questions by local and foreign newsmen
Monday night. They said they surrendered' to Israel because they found out that stories
of "Israeli atrocities" were untrue and because "the Israelis treated us more humanely
than our brethren."
Suleiman Yunis, 17, said he would "never forget the Israeli soldier who gave
me water from his bottle."
The guerrillas are mainly members of El Fatah and a few who claim member-
ship in the Syrian-backed Al Saiqa commando group. One of them, from Horns, Syria,
was asked why he didn't return to his country. He replied: "Nobody wants us anymore.
We decided it is best to go to Israel."
The captives admitted membership in

Detroit Rabbinical Commission Adopts Plan
For Synagogue Members' Commitment to IJJA
The Detroit Rabbinical Commission has recommended support for a United Jew-
ish Appeal project seeking 100 per cent participation by synagogue members in local
UJA campaigns, through the Allied Jewish Campaign-Israel Emergency Fund conducted
by the Jewish Welfare Federation.
Support for the UJA "100 Per Cent Plan" was announced by Rabbi Leon Fram,
chairman of the commission, and Rabbi James I. Gordon, chairman of the committee
that planned this synagogue program.
Rabbi Fram stated that over 100 congregations throughout the country have al-
ready taken steps to implement the project.
As a first step, congregations are asked to adopt a resolution urging 100 per
cent participation by their membership in the local campaign. The second step calls
for the establishment of congregational solicitation committees to insure the success of
A number of local congregations are already actively engaged in developing the
plan, Rabbi Gordon said. His own congregation, Young Israel of Oak-Woods, was one of
the first local groups to support the plan.
"Everyone who belongs to a synagogue should be a contributor to the campaign,
in accordance with his means, and the synagogue should take the initiative to encour-
age him to do so," Rabbi Gordon said.
