A man with an Interesting and colorful background, Max Varon has lived tn Jerusalem since 1939, when he came there after fleeing for hia life In Germany. In 1941 he enlisted for service, joining the British Brigade, and saw service In Italy and North Africa. After the war he was active ifl; Haganah, taking part In the reacue operation of Jews then languishing in con¬ centration camps. He helped many of them find there way to Israel. The New Yoi'k Consul spent four years working In England as both Director of the Jewish National Fund and co-director of the Joint Palestine Appeal. He came to New York on his present assignment last November. ISRAEL'S FAILURE to receive defensive arms to balance the heavy .shipments made recently to K&ypt by both the East and Brit¬ ain nas helghtenod tension and caused profound, concern among friends of Israel everywhere. It 13 the fervent hope of those planning the visit of Mr. Varon that the Columbus community will respond to Israel's peril by coming to tho meeting as a demonstration of support for the young democ¬ racy as It faces lis worst crisis. l-,oaders of the Columbus com¬ munity were quick to note national support for Israel's cause in the statement released over iast week¬ end by former President Truman, Mrs. Eleanor Roosevolt and Walter Reuther, asking our government to make arms available to Israel. Al¬ ao, a large advertisement In the New York Times, (Jan. 27), placed by the American Christian Pales¬ tine- Committee and algned by prominent Americans in every walk of life that "urge our Gov¬ ernment to make available to Is¬ rael without delay the legitimate means for its self-defense. "Israel's enemies, encouraged by lavish supplies of weapons of de¬ struction from the Communist world, are making rapid prepara¬ tions to unleaalx a new round of war which their leaders assert will destroy Israel. A renewed war a- gttlnst Israel would set the whole Middle East aflame, endangering the peace of the world. "WE CANNOT." the statement continues, "accept the view held hy some (if our British friends that war can be forestalled or prevent¬ ed by applying pressures to Israel td yield territory to the Arab sUtes. Wo recall the historic fail¬ ure of the Munich Conference to avert World War II by forcing democratic Czechoslovakia to sur¬ render its territories to Nazi Ger¬ many.
