Felix Frankfurter

tion of other Jews. Led by
David Philipson, the former
president of the Central
Conference of American
Rabbis, the reform wing of
Judaism resisted efforts to
redirect the thinking and
financial resources of their
synagogues in the direction
of Palestine. 'The United
States is our Palestine,'
Philipson declared, 'and
Washington our
Jerusalem.'
"If they hoped to expand
their base of support beyond
the urban working class and
a handful of intellectuals,
Brandeis and Frankfurter
had to capture the middle-
class citadels of reform
Judaism in the cities and
suburbs of Cincinnati, San
Francisco, Minneapolis and
Boston. This became
Frankfurter's principle
project during the westward
journey of the President's
Mediation Commission."
Of course, Frankfurter
was a Brandeissist in the
conflict with Chaim Weiz-
mann over Zionist economic
and resettlement issues
There is historic signifi-
cance to Frankfurter's role
in bringing Weizmann, as
president of the World
Zionist Organization, to-
gether with King Feisal of
Arabia. Parrish has this to
say about Frankfurter's role
in the Weizmann-Feisal
confab:

"His greatest victory took
place at a villa in the Bois de
Boulogne, where against
the backdrop of rising Arab
protests in Palestine, he sat
down to discuss peace with
King Feisal and his boyish,
charismatic ally, Lawrence.

"Frankfurter showed
Feisal the proposed
Zionist borders for Pales-
tine, which included
plans for an extensive
hydroelectric project and
irrigation system on
lands claimed by France
for the Syrians. He told
Feisal of his hope that
Jews and Arabs could
develop the land together
without fighting and
without bloodshed.

"Several days later, Fei-
sal sent a remarkable reply.
Jews and Arabs were
`cousins in race,' the king af-
firmed, who had suffered
`similar oppressions at the
hands of the powers' and
should now stand together.
He regarded the Zionists'
demands as 'moderate and
proper' and vowed 'we will
do our best in so far as we
are concerned to help them
through.' "
The fascination in Par-
rish's "Frankfurter" is both
in the story of the eminent
jurist and as much in "his
times." The excellently re-
searched book is good biog-
raphy and splendid as an
historical addendum.

Israelis, Terrorists Exchange
Fire at Lebanese Front

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Is-
raeli soldiers and Palesti-
nian terrorists exchanged
fire for several hours Tuday
in the eastern sector of the
Lebanese front.
No Israeli soldiers were
injured in what a military
spokesman described as the
most serious breach of the
cease-fire in Lebanon in a
month.
Army sources said the ex-
change began when snipers
behind Syrian lines opened
fire on Israeli positions near
Yanta, 22 kilometers east
of Lake Karoun. Israeli
soldiers returned the fire
which escalated to
machinegun and rocket ex-
changes.
The sources said the Is-
raelis limited their fire to
the immediate area from
where they were being
attacked in order to
avoid an eruption of
fighting along the entire
easter front.
The incident was the sec-
ond since Sunday night
when Palestinian terrorists
fired rockets and small
arms at Israeli positions
north of Amik on the east-
ern front. An army spokes-
man said the fire was re-
turned and no Israeli
soldiers were hit. But one
Isreli soldier was slightly
wounded a day earlier when
he was caught in cross fire
between battling Druze and
Christian factions near the
town of Aleh.
Meanwhile, Israeli and
foreign journalists have

protested a new army order
barring them from driving
Israeli vehicles in Lebanon
without an escort of army
jeeps. The army, for its part,
has refused to provide the
escorts.
Israel television net-
works from Lebanon and
newspapers are using the
dispatches of foreign news
agencies to report develop-
ments in Beirut.

JERUSALEM (JNI) —
While historian Barbara
Tuchman did not foresee a
change in U.S. policy
toward Israel in an Israel
TV interview Oct. 1, she ad-
vised that "Israel would do
well not to trust anybody.
Trust is not an element of
international relations."
"Israel is absolutely
unique, without historic
parallel, and in a sense far
more important than its size
and strategic position war-
rant," the 70-year-old
American continued. "It is
also important for its
Jewish history, the military
strength it has developed,
and its extraordinary
capacity to survive against
enormous odds.
"Although history is now
unhappy with Israel, all
Diaspora Jews should be,
and probably in their hearts
are, grateful for its exist-
ence. Israel has made our
lives totally different."
