Mr. Abel explained that "there are more than 200,000 refugee Jews In Europe, North Africa and the Middle East who must be transferred and settled in Is rael, as well as in the U. S., In the next elght-to-10 months. The transfer of these homeless Jews which must be, carried out this year be«au.se of the dire medical needs o f the.se Individuals, makes the 1950 drive one of paramount importance. "Many of these rfefugees," he continued, "face disaster and death because they cannot con¬ tinue to live In countries where they cannot sustain themselves economically. Even to this day Jews in the Moslem countries of the Middle East are menaced by Increasing persecution and descrlminatlon. Jews In many European coOntries are also suf¬ fering. "This Is a race against time," Mr. Abel concluded. "We must have Uie funds to get our people out of these devastated and (re¬ stricted areas.
