JERUSALEM (ZINS) —
Government officials are
worried by growing Israeli
Arab identification with the
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization.
Following terrorist inci-
dents, the Israeli govern-
ment normally receives
hundreds of letters and
telegrams from the Arab
community expressing
sympathy. After the bus
hijackings and killing of 35
civilians on the Tel Aviv-
Haifa road this spring the
government received three
Arab letters.

Paperback Answers Missionaries

By REENA FRIEDMAN

(Copyright 1978, JTA, Inc.)

A paperback sponsored by
the Jewish Community Re-
lations Council of New York
seeks to counter the claims
made by members of Christ-
ian proselytizing groups,
especially the "Jews for
Jesus." Aimed at those in-
dividuals who feel that they
can reconcile remaining
Jews with a belief in Christ,
the book presents the
Jewish view of Christianity
and sets forth the major
theological distinctions be-
tween the two religions.
Entitled "Jews and
Jewish Christianity," its
avowed purpose is "to re-
trieve for Judaism every
possible Jew." It is pub-
lished by Ktav and was co-
authored by Dr. David
Berger, a historian, and Dr.
Michael Wyschogrod, a
philosopher, at the request
of the JCRC's newly formed
Task Force on Missionary
