Israel Launches Campaign
to Explain Mideast Position

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Foreign Minister Yigal Al-
Ion has asked two major po-
litical rivals; Knesseters
Moshe Dayan and Abba
Eban, to join Israel's infor-
mation campaign to explain
Israel's role and 'position
during the second-stage
talks with Egypt that were
mediated by Secretary of
State Henry A. Kissinger.
Alton has asked Eban to
meet with him_ this week
and also sent a cable to
► an who is en route from
n to the United States
to join in the information ef-
fort when he speaks in the
U.S. on fund-raising mis-
sions.
Similar cables were sent
to Yitzhak Navon, Head of
the Knesset Security and
Foreign Affairs Committee,
who is also due soon in the
U.S., and to Knesseter Eli-
melech Rimalt, chairman of
the Liberal's Executive, who
is now in Europe. Other per-
sonalities have also been
asked to join the informa-
tion campaign. —
Meanwhile, sources
here reported that Israeli
Ambassador, Simha Din-
itz, has so far been encour-
aging in his-reports to Je-
rusalem about meetings
with leading congressional
figures as_ partof Israel's
campaign to explain the
breakdown of the shuttle.
The Israel Foreign_Minis- -
try is sending high-powered
delegations to the U.S. and
elsewhere to help in the in-
formation work. The first
team will be led by former
information and intelli-
gence head Aharon Yariv,
former Air Force head Dan
Tolkowsky, former intellig-
ence chief Meir Amit, and
Commerce and Industry
Minister- Haim Barley. -
In New York, a nation-
wide drive to mobilize broad
support for Israel was
launched by the Conference
of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organiza
tionS.
Leaders of the Jewish or-
ganizations met to inaugu-
rate "an intensified pro-
grani- to tell the American
people the facts about the
Arab-Israel conflict," ac-
cording to Rabbi Israel
Miller, chairman of the con-
ference. Speakers include
Dinitz and Representatives
Bella Abzug, Elizabeth
Holtzman, Edward I. Koch
and Lester L. Wolff, all New
York-Democrats.
a statement announc-
the meeting, Ribbi
' Miller declared: "Egypt's
intransigence in refusing
to make further progress
toward peace has created
a whole new situation in
the Middle East. Already
we hear threats of a 'jihad'
or holy war from Anwar
Sadat and expressions of
satisfaction by the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion and Syrian officials
that the road to peace has
been blocked again. Our
meeting will explore the
steps that must be taken
now to deal with these de-
velopments."
In a "Middle East Memo"
commenting on the suspen-

lin

sion of Dr. Kissinger'S peace
mission, the president's con-
ference-declared: "It was
Israel that made the major
concessions and Egypt' that
rejected them; Israel that
offered to give up territory
and Egypt that refused; Is-
rael that asked for peace
and Egypt that insisted on
continuing the state of war.
The failure of the peace
talks rests with Egypt. That
responsibility is clear and
unequivocal. It confirms
once again Egypt's — and
the Arab world's — continu-,
ing refusal to accept Israel's
right to exist."
The "Middle East Memo,"
a ,periodic analysis of cur-
rent developments affecting
U.S. security and Jewish
interests, concluded with
this projection of how the
U.S. would respond to the
suspension of Kissinger's
efforts:
"The American_ people
will understand who in the
Middle East offers .conces-
sions for peace and who re-
fuses to renounce war. By
the same token, the Ameri-
can people will continue to
.support the policy of our
government in defending
America's strategic inter-
ests by providing Israel with
the econom-ic, military and
political support necessary
to deter Arab attack and to
keep alive the search for a
just and lasting peace in the
Middle East."
-
Meanwhile, in Jerusa-
lem, Premier Yitzhak Ra-
bin's advisor on mass com-
munications, Dan Patir,
admitted that Israel had
lagged behind Egypt in
presenting to the world its
version of the unsuccessful
negotiations for a second-
stage Sinai agreement
conducted by Secretary of
State. Henry A. Kissinger.
He said, howe,ver, that
this was the result of a deli-
berate policy on Israel's _part
to avoid anything that
might have interfered with
the progress of the negotia-
tions while they were going
on.

Suicide of Warsaw
Ghetto Girls Told

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Nine-
ty-three. Jewish girls aged
14-22 who were abducted
from their school in the
Warsaw Ghetto in 1942 to a
brothel for SS officers, com-
mitted suicide rather than
submit to their captors.
Details of that little
known tragedy were re-
vealed in a last will and tes-
tament written by one of
the girls, 17-year-old Chaya
Friedman, who said that all'
she and her companions ;
hoped for was that someone
would recite kadish for
them.
The letter, written in Yid-
dish, was found in Poland
recently and was sent to the
Nazi war crimes documen-
tation center in Haifa, ac-
cording to Tuvia Friedman,
head of the center.
He has sent it to West
Germany where it will be
used as evidence in the trial
of Ludwig Haan, an ex-Nazi
who was in charge of the
Warsaw Ghetto.

Civilization is a constant
quest for non-violent means
of solving conflicts. It is a
common quest for peace.
