ZOA Protests Forsaking Israel

For Custom Drapery

Cleaning, Call


NEW YORK -- The Zionist
Organization of America has
published in The New York
Times, The_ New York Law
Journal, The Washington Post
and various Israeli newspapers,
appealing "to President Ford, to
the Congress of the United
States, and to the people of

America, not to submit to perfi-
dious counsel and treacherous
advice to forsake Israel, a loyal
friend and ally.
"Appeasement of the Soviet-
Arab axis will not bring peace,
but more war. Appeasement of
the Soviet-Arab axis will not
bring the price of oil down to its
pre-1973 level.

"Only a strong and secure
Israel, in alliance with the
United States, can prevent new
wars and bring economic stabil-
ity to the world."

BONN (JTA) — The West
German National Olympics
Committee rejected any idea of
staging the 1976 Olympici
Games in Munich, should Mon-
treal be unable to do so.



Dr. Joseph P. Sternstein, of
the ZOA, in a letter to the New
York Times, wrote; "All those
who urge Israel to accept re-
treat from positions essential to
its defense and security are
knowingly or unknowingly agi-
tating for the ultimate demise
of the Jewish state."

The West German NOC pres-
ident, Willi Daume, said costs
and security problems pre-
sented obstacles.

Bonds Marks 25th Anniversary,
Organizer Montor Honored-

TEL AVIV — In celebration
of the 25th anniversary of the
founding of the State of Israel
Bonds Organization, Israel's
1975 Prime Minister's Israel
Bond Conference recently hon-
ored Henry Montor, who estab-
lished the organization and
headed its campaign during its
first five years.
Montor was joined 25 years
ago by Julian B. Venezky, now
national chairman for regions,
and Sam Rothberg, general
chairman, in setting up the or-
Montor helped David Ben-
Gurion establish the nucleus of
American Jewish support for
the defense of pre-state Israel,
three years before the state de-
clared independence.

Venezky presented the sil-
ver anniversary Prime Minis-
ter's Medal to Montor at a
closed session with Defense
Minister Shimon Peres at
Beit Hahayal here.

Appeal which he and Abba Hil-
lel Silver helped to set up in
partnership with the Joint Dis-
tribution Committee.

Montor had a major role in
the preparations for a confer-
ence convened by Ben-Gurion
in September 1950 in Jerusa-
lem where the prime minister
asked American Jews to sup-
port the flotation of Israel's
first foreign bond issue.

Among the speakers at the
prime minister's Bond confer-
ence were Eugene Gold, chair-
man of the Brooklyn Division of
Israel Bonds and chairman of
the New York Conference for
Soviet Jewry; Menahem Begin,
leader of Likud; Ira Guilden,
chairman of the board of
Bonds; Rothberg; Pinhas Sapir,
Jewish Agency chairman; and
Leonard Goldfine, national
campaign co-chairman. More
than 400 leaders from 22 coun-
tries attended.






Since its inception, Israel
Bonds has raised more than $3
billion for the growth of Israel's
economy through its develop-
ment budget.
Montor began his association
with Israel in 1925 when he be-
came the assistant editor of the
"New Palestine," the ZOA offi-
cial publication edited by Meyer
Weisgal. He was publicity
chairman of the United Pales-
tine Appeal, and in 1937 was
named its executive difector.
He also was executive vice
chairman of the United Jewish

Menuhin Refutes
UNESCO Protest

NEW YORK — Famed Jew-.
ish violinist Yehudi Menuhin,
and the executive committee of
the UNESCO-affiliated Inter-
national Music Council which
he heads, have announced op-
position to any boycott against
UNESCO for its recent anti-Is-
rael resolutions.
Leonard Bernstein had ca-
bled Menuhin asking him and
the music council to join "more
than 100 musicians and dan-
cers, including me, in with-
drawing all participation in
UNESCO-affiliated activities

In His Life We Were
Blessed. In His Death
We, of the JEWISH
Stand Bereaved. May
the Blessing of His
Memory Serve to Guide
and Strengthen Us.


In his cabled answer, Menu-
hin said that Jerusalem, "be-.
cause of its universal meaning,
must be treated as a trust for
humanity at large and not as
the province of a single power."
(Moshe Menuhin, Yehudi
Menuhin's father, has actively
opposed the existence of Israel
in a number of books and pam-
phlets.. A former Hebrew
teacher, Moshe Menuhin pur-
sues an attitude even more ex-
treme than that of the Council
for Judaism.)

West Bank Arabs
Conduct Talks

Arab leaders of the West Bank
are conducting three separate
dialogues. One of them is di-
rected at Israel, a second at the
terrorists, and a third at the
Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
They must avoid a confronta-
tion with the Israeli authori-
ties, or suffer sanctions by way
of deportation or arrest. At the
same time they are fairly cer-
tain that, sooner or later, Israel
will yield control of the terri-
tory, and it is not clear who will
take over in the provinces of Ju-
dea and Shomron — Arafat or
Hussein. For that reason they
must maintain good relations
both with the terrorists and the
Jordanian trrof ► Arth.s
