Ambassador Scali States U.S. Position in Defense of Israel

UNITEID NATIONS (JTA) — John Scali, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, told the General Assembly last week that "weaving the
Palestinian interests into the give and take of the negotiating process" was the way to move toward a situation "more responsire" to those interests.
At the same time, he affirmed, "it must be understood by all that Israel has the right to exist as a sovereign independent state within secure and
recognized boundaries."
Scali said Palestinian interests would not be advanced "through new resolutions or dramatic parliamentary maneuvers." He stressed that
if any of the parties • to the conflict rejected the right to exist of any other parties to the negotiations, then "our best hopes for negotiations and
for peace are lost."
_Without mentioning Arafat by name, Scali denounced attempts to equate terror with revolution and Arafat's professing to see no difference
"between the slaughter of innocent people and a struggle for national liberation." He added that "there are those who wish to compare the
American revolution and the many other wars of liberation of the past 200 years, with brutal and indiscriminate terrorism." The American free-
dom fighters, Scali said, never succumbed to the easy excuse that "the end justifies the means."

Bigotr in UNESCO Shocks Civilized Society

UNESCO Actions Denounced,
Ford, Brezhnev Offer M.E. Hope

By JOSEPH POLAKOFF

WASHINGTON (JTA)—The major significance of the Middle East pas-
sage in the Brezhnev-Ford communique in Vladivostok following their one-
hour discussion on that area's problems, appears to be that the super pbwers
have agreed to prevent a fifth Israel-Arab conflict in the near future.
Beyond that, a conclusion drawn by some is that the super powers have
edged a bit closer to the long held Moscow viewpoint that Moscow and
Washington must impose a "peace" on the Mideast. That "peace" it is
thought, may be disguised as a UN solution but in effect it will be a Soviet-
American agreement along the lines of the old Rogers formula -- "Insub-
stantial changes" in Israel's pre-Six-Day War
borders.
Moscow has been agitating for that type of big
power solution even before the first Nixon-Brezh-
nev summit in May 1972. The U.S. position has
- been against an imposed agreement — a pledge .
that Israel has consistently held to be a cardinal
element of ties to Washington. Now it seems a
"new reality" is enforcement of the 1967 Security
Council- resolution 242 that is embodied in the
- council's resolution 338 mentioned in the Vladivo-
stockcommunique as the basis for settlement.
Of utmost importance is the emphasis in the
( communique that Moscow and Washington "be-
- lieve" that the Geneva conference "should resume

Israel's Moments
Glory Amidst
Internationalized
Perfidy at
UN's Cesspool

Israel emerges as a light unto the
nations.
In an era when so many peoples
have returned to the jungle and have
demolished every vestige of human
decency in an arena that had been
planned to become the Parliament of
Civilized Man, it was necessary for the
inheritor and legaltee to the world of
the Decalogue to hold high the banner
of decency.
Israel performed that task well and
honorably in an United Nations that

had been turned' into a cesspool by
men who were transformed into beasts
during the tragic moments in world
history on the banks of the East River
in New York.
History will recall with gratitude
that a handful of nations, under the
leadership of the United States, up-
held the hands of the littlest of states
in its determination to retain a life of
security and decency.
Other nations, submitting to the
title Great Powers, were found en-
tangled in the jungle created by the
insanities of haters who posed as sup-
porters of a United Nations Human
Charter while seeking to destroy a
member of the world organization that
formulated such a charter.
Perfidious Albion chose to besmirch
the Magna C'harta and to enter the
jungle. Arthur James Balfour and his
associates who fathered the historic
declaration affirming Jewish rights to
statehood must be turning over in
their graves!
Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite had
been an inspiration for many peoples.
Now the French nation is disgraced

WASHINGTON (JTA):—Sen. Clifford P. Case (R-NJ) and Rep. Barry _
Goldwater Jr: (R-Calif.) have indicated they will seek Congressional action
to offset the Arab-Communist actions against Israel in the United Nations
and its auxiliary organs. Case said he is considering a request either for a
Senate resolution condemning UNESCO or a move to cut off UNESCO from
U.S. assistance in the foreign aid legislation.
In three days last week UNESCO approved four resolutions: withdraw-
ing all assistance for Israel, excluding Israel from its European regional
group, calling for increased assistance within its projected budget for the
liberation of Palestine and other liberation movements, and asking the di-
rector general to cooperate with Arab states and
the PLO in assuring the right of education and
cultUre to Arabs in Israeli-occupied territory.
Goldwater, pointing to the UN votes to admit
the Palestine Liberation Organization to join its
General Assembly debate and to exclude the Re-
ublic of South Africa, said' these actions were
violations of the UN Charter. He stated that he
would introduce legislation in the new Congress
convening in January to reduce the level of Ameri-
can funding to the UN. "An organization which
persists in such actions 'as these," he said, "does
not deserve to be supported by the hard working
American taxpapers.

by an evil spirit that has beguiled its
statesmen!
Mankind might well sit in mourning
over the degradations that have been
imposed upon an international organ-
ization whose origin was rooted in so
much hope. It , fell to the lot of tiny.
Israel to hold high the torch of liberty,
equality, fraternity while bestiality
and insanity dominated the world or-
ganization!
Man, Jewish tradition has taught,
was created in the image of .God. Sel-
fishness and power-seeking are at-
tempting to transform man into beast.
The few who hold fast to hurnan
-values reject the jungle. Israel, in
this process of - true civilization seek-
ing to cleanse the United Nations cess-
pool, retains faith and adhered to the
definition of her very name:
"Your name shall be called . . . Is-
rael, for you have striven with God
and with men, and have prevailed."
—Gen. 32:29.
In such faith, Israel emerges as the
towering messenger of faith amidst,
despair. In the hours of disgrace for
mankind, in the shame that humiliates

the Great PoWers and the beasts from
the jungle who have influenced their
actions, Israel looms taller in a stature
of dignity.
A people that refuses to be tram-
pled upon, a nation that holds high
the banner of civilization, and a peo=
ple small in numbers nevertheless
holds, out the hope for mankind that
there will be a return to just human-
ism. It takes one adherent to justice
to hold high the lamp of civilization.
That hand, - finding support from this
great nation, will not weaken. A
nation that stands erect, dignified, re-
fusing to be crushed, emerges as a
light to all mankind.
The people Israel lives. The jungle
will be cleansed. The glory that stems
from Israel's ancient codes will once
again guide mankind so that beasts
of the jungle will not be shamed by
humans who attempt to imitate their
worst habits. Perhaps there will yet
be a day of glory for the United Na-
tions, and when that day comes, Is-
rael's present great moment, of cour-
age and dignity will be the shining
light leading it out of humiliation.
