This, he emphasized, demands Israel's uttermost preparedneaa. At the same, time. Mr. Ben Gur-i- — -;—¦ • — Ion stretched out a hand of peace to Egypt and declared that there is no reason tor any conflict be¬ tween countries. ''There la no foun¬ dation for border disputes," he said. "This Is not territorial quarrel between Israel and Egypt. On the contrary, peace between the two countries would help Egypt to strengthen Its Ihternatlonal statua." larael. Premier Ben Gurion stressed, . ia not hostile to Egypt because of ancient tlmea or even because of Its recent InvEuaion. "We did not dream of attacking Egypt when the former regime trembled and the new regime was settled as yet," he said. "We greet Egypt as far as her present government strives for peace. However, no¬ body can yet foretell whether the Egyptian regime now Is for peace or for war. We must, therefore, be prepared, alert and wise." With regard to Syria, the Israel Premier pointed out that the Syr- ion military dictator Gen. Shlsh- koll, who invaded Israel, was de¬ feated and barely escaped to save his skin. However, now he threat¬ ens Israel "In a typical Hitlerite fashion." "I shall not discuss now how such threats can be reconciled with Syria's belonging to the Unit¬ ed Nations, but from our defence viewpoint, we muat rely only upon ourselves and not on external forces," he declared. Mr. Ben Gurlon delivered his ad¬ dress In support of a government bill requesting that military service for Israelis be increased from the present 24 ntiC^nths to a 30-montb period. He called vigorously for "relentljess preparedness" empha¬ sizing that Israel's .enemies "did not sit idly during the last four years and were preparing them¬ selves" against the Jewish state. "There Is no doubt," he said, "that there are many among the ArabEf* who desire peace with Is¬ rael. But their voice Is seldom heard. Moat natlona of the world are Interested in peace between Is¬ rael and the Arab countries, never¬ theless there Is no peace. The sltua-, tlon In the neighboring countriea does not forecast stability and peace. The contrary la true.
