Arab Propaganda
Takes The Low Road

ROBERT E. SEGAL

T

wo decades after the
attack on Israel
launched by Nasser's
Egypt — a conflict referred to
recently by columnist George
Will as "six days that shook
the world" — a coalition of
pro-Arab groups based in
Cambridge, Mass. has placed
posters in metropolitan
Boston subway lines bewail-
ing Washington's continued
support of Israel.
The coalition is said to con-
sist of the American Friends
Service Committee, the
Lebanon Emergency Commit-
tee and Mobilization for
Survival.
The uninformed may ask
why a peace-loving group like
the Quakers (AFSC) is a part-
ner in that venture? Why do
those who march under a
Quaker banner champion a
terrorist cause mounted by
Yassir Arafat's PLO? And
why has this Quaker group
campaigned against U.S.
assistance for Israel while
claiming its goal in the Mid-
dle East is humanitarian and
not political?
Some answers can be found
in the strongly biased book,

Search for Peace in The Mid-
dle East, published in 1970 by

AFSC. (Among those inter-
viewed by the authors was
Rabbi Elmer Berger,
spokesman for the American
Council for Judaism, foe of
the State of Israel.)
That misguided study plac-
ed upon Israel the burden of
making peace. If only the
Israelis would make the first
move, if only they would
withdraw from occupied ter-
ritory, Arab terrorism would
cease to exist and peace would
reign — thus ran the book's
central theme.
The Boston transit line pro-
Arab advertising cards are
only one example of recent ef-
forts to win Americans over to
a pro-Arab stance.
The pro-Arab cause has
been advanced over the years
by Dorothy Thompson, who
headed the misnamed
American Friends of the Mid-
dle East even though she had
earlier referred to opponents
of Zionism as hypocrites;
Virginia Gildersleeve, famed
dean of Barnard College, who
felt sorry for Nasser and in-
sisted Jews had a deadlock on
the American media; Under-
secretary of State George
Ball, who criticized Israel for
having the nerve to defend
itself against Arab attacks;
and Sen. J. William Ful-

bright, who frowned on
Washington's prudent habit
of aiding Israel and went on
to serve as an agent for Saudi
Arabia.
In more recent days, key
lawmakers such as Sen.
James Abourezk and Rep.
Paul Findley have fought
vigorously for the Arab cause.
Harold Minor, chief of the
U.S. Office of Near Eastern
Affairs, raised a powerful
voice for Arab nations. And as
one who toiled for ARAMCO,
he recalls for us the powerful
American oil barons who had
the money to put Madison
Avenue ad agencies to work
devising Arab propaganda.
Today the anti-Israel drums
beat on, with foreign cor-
respondents leading the
parade. In his book The
Arabs, David Lamb insists
that Israel must bear blame
for "making peace impossi-
ble." Edward Tivnan has dish-
ed up a frontal attack on the
duly-constituted lobbying
agency, the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee, for
working to defeat the AWACS
sale to Saudi Arabia. Yet, Tiv-
nan failed to recall how hard
Saudi potentates worked over
U.S. Senators to get the
armaments.
Compared to the heavy pro-
paganda firepower discharged
by senators, authors,
educators, foreign cor-
respondents, TV celebrities
and some Americans who un-
fairly blame Israel for their
captivity in Lebanon, the sub-
way ad cards are pop-gun
shots.

Goldfish
Point The Way

Rehovot, Israel — Israeli
scientists are learning lessons
from goldfish that may help
man in re-growing nervous
systems.
Neurobiologist Professor
Michal Schwartz of the Weiz-
mann Institute of Science,
became interested in the fact
that while major nerves of
mammals do not repair
themselves, fish can regrow
damaged nervous systems.
Her study of goldfish showed
that tissues surrounding
damaged nerves release
natural substances which are
essential to the healing
process.
The next step of research
was to determine if natural
products from goldfish could
contribute to the process.
