Israel'Will Win If New War' Erupt's'

WASHINGTON (ZINS) —
U.S. military experts, speak-
ing at a conference at Bran-
deis University, said that in
the event of a new Mideast
war Israel would emerge the
victor( with casualties less
than she sustained in the last
war.
According to these author-

ities, Israel now has a stand-
ing army of 100,000' soldiers
with 2,000 tanks, opposed to
a force of 300,000 men and
6,000 tanks in Egypt, Syria
and other-Arab states.
That prediction is sup- -
-ported by British military
experts, who contend, how-
ever, that Israeli casualties
will be much higher than in
the previous war.

Blacks, Jews Meet in Chicago'
to 'Re-Form Liberal Coalition

CHICAGO (JTA) — Black
and Jewish religious leaders
from across the nation con-
vened a two-day conference
Monday to re-establish their
once powerful civil rights
coalition and develop a work-
ing body to eliminate the
common social concerns fac-
ing the nation.
The meeting, convened by
Reverend Jesse Jackson,
"Operation Push" and Rabbi
Irwin M. Blank, president of
the Synagogue Council of
America, national umbrella
organization f o r Orthodox,
Conservative and Reform
Judaism, brought_ together
50 clergymen and laymen
from 10 cities.
In opening statements,
Rev.- Jackson and Rabbi
Blank expressed a sense of
urgency that both groups
have in reuniting to work
together. While they agreed
that there may be some is-
sues which could still divide
both blacks and Jews, they
called for "honest and frank
exchanges" and hoped that
any areas of disagreement
would result not in "re-
courses of either racism or
anti-Semitism."
Rev. Jackson, a leader in
the civil rights movement,
called the conference "more
compelling than the civiliza-
tional crisis itself, in which
the U.S. is now engulfed.
"An economy that is stag-
nant and unstable, the epi-
demic of corruption in the
political life of this society,
the moral and spiritual decay
that we witness all - around-
us, is putting our respective
ministries to the test. -
"The challenge to feed the
hungry, find socially useful
work for the jobless, care
for the aged senior citizens
of our country, provide qual-
ity education for every child,
reduce inflation by reducing
the military budget which is
the prime source of inflation
and re-ordering the priorities
of our country to serve the
needs of the people — these
are the common grounds for
cooperation between the

black and Jewish commun-
ities."
Rabbi Blank stressed that
both groups must overcome
Their tendency to see each
other as symbols rather than
as living beings. "As long as -
black people see Jews as
the symbol of white oppres-
sion, t h e super-employer
discriminator, then it will be
that much more difficult to
deal with those sources.
As long as Jews persist in
seeing black people as the
symbol of threats to eco-
nomic security, community
stability and Third World
hostility to Israel, then con-
structive approaches to its
concerns will be stifled be-
fore they can take shape.
Seeing each other as symbols
rather than as living indi-
viduals and vital commun-
ities prevents any real meet:
ing."
Rabbi Blank stressed the
need for blacks to under-
stand the passion Jews have
for Israel. "It is _a source of
puzzlement, which ferquently
shades into anger for Jews
when black movements with
legitimate concerns and rea-
sons for anger and hostility
take the occasion, it seems to .
us gratutiously, to malign-
Israel' and thereby insult the
Jewish people.
"We- wonder at this and
take it_ as an expression of
anti-Semitism. Positive state-
ments of support, positive _
gestures — of course we
would like this. But, in our
more reasoned moments, we
know that this may not be
possible„ or even necessary,
other than as an expression
of compassionate- f e 1 w -
feeling."
After the , opening state-
ment, the clergymen went
behind closed doors for meet-
ings for the continuation of

the conference.
