WASHINGTON — Bnai
Brith, reacting to "angry
sentiments" over the British
government's pro-Arab policy
during the Mideast war, can-
celled London as the site of
its triennial convention next
year.
The cancellation was pro-
posed by Bnai Brith Presi-
dent David M. Blumberg and
adopted by the organization's
international board of gov-
ernors at its annual meeting
here.
Blumberg told the board
that prospective delegates
"have indicated a strong re-
luctance to convene in a
country whose government
has shown such little regard
for Israel's right to live."

Instead, the board voted to
shift the assembly • to Israel
as an expression of soli-
darity.
The convention, a $2,000,-
000 operation, was expected
to draw more than 2,000 dele-
gates and guests to Great
Britain in mid-November.
Blumberg said that the
London cancellation "is not
meant to be vindictive. We
have no quarrel with the fair-
minded attitude of the British
people."

But, he added, reaction in
the Jewish community finds
that "British government
policy, in contrast to British
public opinion, dealt a severe
blow to Israel and to West-
ern unity by yielding to the
Arab threat of oil blackmail,
while abandoning the Ameri-
can effort to resist a Soviet
takeover in the Middle
East."

Bnai Brith had received
petition and protests from its
members "expressing con-
cern that a convention in
London might be construed
as indifference to the British
government's anti - Israel
policy," Blumberg said.
He said that "angry senti-
ments" were directed par-
ticularly at the British gov-
ernment's unwillingness to
provide landing rights to the
U. S. military airlift to Is-
rael during the hostilities,
and to the "one-sided" arms
embargo which halted ship-
ment of British arms and
spare parts "which Israel
had bought and paid for."
The cancellation was en-
dorsed by I. Budd Rockower
of Philadelphia, chairman of
the convention committee.
Rockower said that his com-
mittee, which had selected
London 21 months ago, was
unanimous in support of a
shift in the convention site.
Similar support came from
David Stern of London who,
as president of Bnai Brith in
Great Britain and Ireland, is
a member of the international
board.
"We're sorry about it,"
Stern said. "But we under-
stand — and share — Jewish
emotions on this issue."

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Israel
has admitted that pilotless
planes are in use by its air
force. The admission came
after such a plane was
downed last week by Egypt-
ian forces.
According to the Egyptian
announcement an "Israeli
spy plane in the southern
Suez Canal area was shot
down by anti-aircraft fire."
Until this incident Israel
declined to make any state-
ments about the pilotless
planes despite American re-
ports that such planes have
been in operation for some
time.
