George Flesch, a pioneer
in the ranks of Israel's buil-
ders, a former member of
the Knesset, conferred here
with leading communal
personalities to introduce a
"Person to Person" task to
advance the Israel Bonds
The new effort, he em-
phasized, is aimed at enroll-
ing at least 1,000 Bond pur-
chasers in amounts of
$100,000 or more each, in
support of the
Mediterranean-to-Dead Sea
canal which was approved
by the Knesset last week.


"This plan is a fulfillment
of the dream of Theodor
Herzl," Flesch said. "I would
call it the Herzl Canal At-
tained. It is'a major part of
the Israel Bonds program,
which is not a charity but
marks a share in advancing
the economic needs of Is-
rael. My view is that a pos-
session of an Israel Bond is
to assure a Bond with Is-
The canal is being ad-
vanced as one of the
major needs of Israel.
Flesch pointed out that
the fulfillment of this
plan will be to the advan-
tage of all nations in the
Mediterranean area.
Greater Detroit is the
62nd American community
visited by Flesch on his cur-
rent tour. His plan for
enrollment of the
$100.000-or-more Israel
Bond purchasers will prob-
ably take him to as many
more American cities before
he completes his current
mission. He has visited a
number of Latin American

communities before coming
to the United States.
Flesch expressed a chal-
lenge to American thinking
regarding arms for Saudi
Arabia. He asked whether
those supporting this plan
really believe that Saudi
Arabia can withstand an at-
tack from Russia as the
supporters of planes for the
Saudis contend. He pointed
to the weakness of the
Saudis in the Arab world
and asked whether the
entire scheme is not a politi-
cal delusion stemming from
the oil power involved in the
current Middle East conten-
Flesch went to Palestine
from Vienna in 1933. He__
was an elected member of
Assefat Hanivcharim, the
representative body of
Palestine Jewry under the
British. This_ assembly be-
came the Constituent As-
sembly that proclaimed the
state of Israel in 1948.
Elected to the Knesset
in 1951, he became a
member of the Foreign
Affairs and Defense'
Committee and is consid-
ered one of Israel's top
authorities in the field of
foreign affairs.
Flesch has represented
Israel abroad on many occa-
sions as an envoy. A world
famous athlete, he partici-
pated in international
swimming meets, including
the Olympics and European-
From 1971-1977. Flesch
