Action Day for Israel Bonds, Sunday
The •embattled people. of Israel look to American Jewry to protect them
against economic collapse in this hour of challenge. They are handling
their own military affairs, but they need encouragement in their battle
for economic existence. To protect Israel, it is important that investment
dollars should be made available to Israel through the purchase of
Israel Bonds. Detroit Jewry will have the opportunity to make such
purchases this Sunday, which has been declared Israel Action Day for
Israel Bonds. Enlist as a volunteer worker on that day, and buy as
many Israel Bonds as you possibly can. Make Sunday a real Action
Day for IsraeL Detailed Story, Page 2. Editorial, Page 4.

Suicide Squad Dangers Exposed:
Threat by 10,000 fedayeen
Compelled Israers Action
World Jewry Asked to Come to Israel's Assistance
If Israel had not acted against Egypt•on Oct. 28, the Jewish
State might have been in shambles today, it was revealed this
week when the truth regarding the dangers faced by the Israelis
began to become known.
While all the facts are yet to be made available, in the
course of possible peace talks between Israel and the Arab
states, it has been established that Egypt had trained 10,000
fedajeen — suicide commandos — to invade Israel over dif-
ferent frontiers and to murder and pillage, with the intention
of creating panic and making it possible for Egyptian troops
to destroy the Jewish state.
Some of the facts became known when Theodore Kollek,
director general of the office of Israel's Premier David Ben-
Gurion, in Jerusalem, arrived in New York Sunday for con-
sultations with Ambassador Abba Eban.
The imminent movement of fedayeen into Israel "means
that Egypt was the aggressor and we had to defend ourselves,"
Kollek reported that his government is "quite confident"
the other Arab states will not wage war on Israel.
Jacob K. Javits Wins;
Succeeds Sen. Lehman
Jacob K. Javits, Republican, Attorney General
New York, former Congressman, won a great victory at
the polls, Tuesday, defeating Mayor Robert Wagner of
New York City for the U.S.
Mr. Javits succeeds Sena-
tor Herbert H. Lehman, Dem-
ocrat, who has retired from
On the eve of the election,
on Sunday, Javits delivered
a radio address on the Middle
Eastern situation and went
only so far as to say that
"Israel is justified in her
own mind." He proceeded,
without reservation, to sup-
port the Eisenhower policies.
He gave the assurance that
he will "work indefatigably
for the cause of Israel's in-
tegrity as I have been doing
for 10 years, deeply convinc- -
J. K. Javits
ed that it is directly linked
with United States and free world security."
The New York Times, in an editorial on Monaay,
under the heading "Mr. Javits Measures Up," reaffirmed
its support for the Republican candidate and remarked,
in relation to Javits' position on the Middle East situation,
that "he has met the challenge of this test, we are gratified
to say, with courage, fairness" and justice. He did not
hesitate to concede that the Eisenhower Administration
had made mistakes in the past in the Middle East. But he
took his stand unflinchingly with United States policy
within the UN ... He has shown warm sympathy and full
understanding as to Israeli problems."

Judge Nathan J. Kaufman led the ticket for Wayne
County Probate Judge.
Lt. Col. Nahman Karni, of the Israel army, who only on
Friday, a day before leaving Israel, took part in the Sinai
Peninsula fighting, accompanied Kollek.
Israel's action in Egypt was in no way connected with
the French-British movements into Egypt, Kollek stated.
Kollek and Karni reported that Israeli soldiers had heard,
by radio, Russian spoken "in one or two Egyptian tanks" for
about an hour during the Sinai campaign. It is believed that
it may have been the result of Egyptian crews who visited the
Soviet Union, or a Russian technician may have been in one of
Col. Karni reported that Israeli dead in the battle num-
bered less than 100, with 500 wounded. He said the Egyptians
showed more firepower in the 1948 encounters and he added
that the Egyptians' firepower was mostly "in heavy equipment
apparently received from the Russians and some from Great

the blackout has been cancelled and that Israel's night life is
