the Iraqi ambassador to the
United Nations last fall
praising the Iraqi regime in
the name of "anti-Zionist
Jews" for declaring Jewish
holidays official holidays in
Iraq.
The JTA obtained a copy
of the letter, dated Oct. 26,
1972, and addressed to Am-
bassador Abdul Karim Al-
Shaikhly of the Iraqi UN
Mission. which concluded
with the remark that "We
are sure that the ancient
ties and traditional friend-
ship between your country
and the Jews will continue
long after the Zionist plague
will have disappeared."
Neuburger, who claimed
that a "distorted" version of
the letter had been published
some months ago, confirmed,
after hearing it read, that
the copy in JTA hands was
authentic.
He said that he had re-
ceived a "courtesy reply"
from the Iraqi envoy, who
had stressed the ancient ties
between Baghdad and the
Jewish people.

Beame Wins Democratic Nomination;

ber is whether any substan-
tial portion of the non-Jewish
white Democrats will switch
party lines and vote for
either Sen. Marchi or Rep.
Biaggi. Should such defec-
tions occur, they could be
attributable to a reluctance
to have a Jew in City Hall.
Beame is not the first Jew
to run for mayor — and lose
— in this heavily Jewish
city. He was defeated in 1965
when he ran against then
Republican John V. Lindsay
and Conservative William F.
Buckley.
