An Appeal to
Role in Peace
Tasks ... Failure
to Get Arabs
at Halfway Path
LXIX, No. 7
With less than a week remaining before the formal closing of the
current Allied Jewish Campaign-Israel Emergency Fund, a serious obli-
gation rests upon many in this community whose names have not yet
been enrolled in the Honor Roll of those sharing in the destiny of Israel
and the Jewish people.
The two-fold title of the great humanitarian effort denotes its sig-
nificance. Allied Jewish Campaign spells the manifold causes repre-
sented in the drive — the many local educational, special service and
recreational movements and their national counterparts. Israel Emer-
gency Fund is the supplementary fund — raising aspect of a drive that
is geared towards providing the Jewish state with the means for its
continuing support of its resettlement programs for immigrants from
many lands and their health and educational needs.
Neither this community, the American Jewish institutions of
merit nor Israel are to be ignored by those who have concern over
the continuity of highest goals in Jewish life.
This appeal, therefore, is to the unaffiliated, to those not already
enrolled in the great drive, not to wait for solicitors but to call the Cam-
paign office, WO 5-3939, and to enroll as participants in the greatest of

Latest West Bank Disturbance
Stirs Religious Political Crises
Israel Liberty Bell Garden
Will Honor U.S. Bicentennial
JERUSALEM (JTA) — Unrest continued and escalated on the West Bank and in East. Jeru-
salem Tuesday in the aftermath of the Gush Emunim march on the West Bank. Israeli security
forces wounded three Arabs, one of them seriously, in a battle with stone-throwing youths in
Nablus. Two soldiers and a policeman were injured by stones in East Jerusalem where security
forces clashed with rioting students. Fifteen youngsters were detained. Reinforced troops also
broke up demonstrations in Jenin and Tulkarem.
The march was opposed by many Israelis who regard the militant Orthodox nationalist
Gush Emunim as a source of provocation and an embarrassment to the government for defying
its edicts against unauthorized settlement on the West Bank. The Gush Emunim insist that the
West Bank belongs to Israel by divine right.
While touring some of the 19 Israeli settlements on the West Bank Tuesday, near some of
the disturbance areas, Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin told the settlers they would not be aban-
doned. He said the settlements were a bargaining point for a future settlement with Jordan and
he sees the Jordan River as Israel's security border. His aides said Israel may establish five new
settlements on the West Bank within the next year.
Meanwhile, in Tulkarem, a curfew was imposed and police arrested 19 demonstrators and
curfew violators who were immediately brought before a military tribunal and sentenced to
prison terms of 8-9 months and fined $850.
Shopkeepers who went on strike in many West Bank towns were forced to return to their
shops when security forces smashed the locks. The trouble in East Jerusalem was the first there
in more than a month. About 200 Arab schoolgirls marched through the Old City carrying signs
denouncing the Israeli occupation. Police broke up the march near Herod's Gate but were pelted
by stones. Youths burned rubber tires in
the Old City and foreign tourists were
cleared from the area.

Israel Salutes America's Bicentennial With Philately
NEW YORK — The Israel Postal Administration will issue a stamp on Sunday to commemorate the
American Revolution Bicentennial, to honor Israel's "powerful friend whose struggle for freedom inde-
pendence and security two centuries ago was not so very different from that of the young state of Israel
in its own days.
"On the 200th birthday of the American people, Israel recalls this triumphant endeavor with a single
stamp, shown at left, of IL 4.00 value. Pictured is a United States flag trimmed to the shape of 200, with '
the tab highlighting the official U.S. Bicentennial symbol."
According to Israel's Philatelic Service, "It serves as a tribute not only to our valiant revolutionaries,
but to the great and powerful United States of America for which they laid the very foundation
"And by issuing this new commemorative, Israel recognizes the contribution made by over five million Jew-
ish-American citizens to our economy as well as the decisive assistance of the United States to the establishment,
development and security of the state of Israel."
At right are shown three alternative designs which won awards in the Bicentennial stamp competition. The win-
ning design was submitted by Adrian Lucaci, a Tel Aviv graphic artist who immigrated to Israel in 1973 from Romania.
A specialist in etching and oils. Lucaci won several awards in Romania for his work and was an advisor to the Ministry
of Posts in Bucharest. ,.; ;-
