Catholic Priest Defends Jews

Detroiter Dr. Clara Raven
recently received a letter
from a friend — a Catholic
priest — who applauded
Egypt's recent peace
moves, Israel and the Jews.
The letter, from Father
J.G. Gilbride, stated in
part:
"Regarding Israel and
Egypt. I think that Egypt is
smart in realizing that she'd
better make peace with Is-
rael. Egypt is one Arab na-
tion that knows that if an
all-out war comes to try and
wipe out Israel the whole
Christian community of na-
tions will be on Israel's side,

for the simple and com-
manding fact of civilization,
that spiritually we Chris-
tians are Jews!
"They gave us, after cen-
turies of suffering and
dying, our belief in the one
true God; and the Arabs (at
least I am convinced that
Egyptian Arabs) know that
we owe that debt of grat-
itude to the Jews!
"Recently I was speaking
before a group of clergy —
of rabbis, priests, and Prot-
estant ministers and law-
yers — and I put great
emphasis on this point,
also! So I hope and pray
that the God-damned Jew-
haters here in America do
not stick their dirty minds
in the negotiations, and so
destroy this blessing of
peace between Israel and
Egypt!"

tral Fund was laid in 1964

The Central Fund allows
contributors to make one
single annual contribution
which is then divided among
the various beneficiaries
based on their objective
needs. The institutions are
approved by the Ministry of
Social Welfare in Israel and
by individual research in
the United States. Adminis-
tration costs are borne by
the Jewish Welfare Feder-
ation, so the whole of the
contribution goes to the sup-
port of traditional in-
stitutions.

A Federation committee
oversees the operation of
the Central Fund. Com-
mittee members are Harry
B. Aronow, Morris H. Ber-
ris, Maurice Chandler,
Leonard Cohen, Aubrey H.

ber, Mitchell Feldman, Jo-
