An economically strong and

noted that she protested to
Commentary in February
that there was "not even
one grain of truth in this
story." In Jerusalem, a
spokesman for Mrs. Meir
said that "Mrs. Meir
wants to stress she has no

Mrs. Meir would turn over

student will stumble over
this horrible charge and will
find no denial?" Mrs. Meir

"In any case, the whole
story is idiotic," Mrs.
Meir declared. She noted
that the time referred to
was 1948, "not now when
Russian Jews openly
speak of their desire to go
to Israel. But then, did we
have direct contact with
Jews? Did the police ena-
ble Jews to approach us?
Didn't we know that we
were listened to? We
scarcely spoke there. We
always jotted notes. And
here comes this writer and
writes of handing over a
list to Stalin."

Mrs. Meir asserted she
never met Stalin personally
although she was once near
him during a celebration
marking the Russian revolu-
tion when the diplomats'
area was near Stalin's plat-

during her period as Israel's

Mrs. Meir said: "All I can re-

Israel and if it will be good
for Israel it will be good for
all Jews in the world.

"That was that. No more
meetings with her," Mrs.
Meir said that only later did
she learn that Mrs. Molotov
was exiled from Moscow.
