Aaron Zacks, 19t>6 chairman of United Jewish Fund's Special Gifts division, Issued the following atatement concerning the Israel-Suez crisis: "I have just returned from the United Jewish Appeal's Overseas Study Mission in Europe and Israel, and have been asked to make a statement relative to the present critical emer¬ gency there... "It would be presumptuous of me to even attempt to weigh the Implications of this serious situation, which will likely have changed many times before this goes to press. I can only hope and pray, aa will all Americans, that order will be restored and a lasting peace established in thla sorely troubled area of the world. ."I look forward to the opportunity of reporting in a later [":. laaue on my thrilling experiences overseas and the magnificent >,'i accomplishments that have been achieved in tiny Israel In the iv.', face of overwhelming obStocles." Aaron Zaohs prevent the Israel attack on Egypt from becoming an all-out was war being stressed In edi¬ torials in tho American press. Most newspaper comments ex¬ pressed understanding of iNrners plight and recognlw'd the provo¬ cation, but inslstetl that all meas¬ ures must bo taken to end the present threat to the peace. The New York Times, while conceding that preventive war 'Hs not the purpose of the present action," warned however, that "tt could jeopardize the armistice system that ended the war In 1948." The New York Herald Tribune declared that the Israel action "goes beyond the grim sequence of raids and reprisals" and "might be described as an act of war," It noted that the Israeli Government "cites no special, ur¬ gent provocotlon for its action" and warned Israel that It runs "the risk of alienating world sym¬ pathy, of invoking International sojietlons and. In sum, preoipot- ihg all the dangers which Israel has seen on Its horizon for nwny months past." The New York Post edItorhUly declared that "we cannot condone the course Israel's government has chosen in seeking to end the dan- gerouN Htalemate and' force world opinion to face the cruel facts of Middle Eastern life." It described the action as "the desperate move of a besieged, lonely republic which hod decided that it must atriJke now or risk extinction .. ," The poper declaimed ^ thai "the free nations shore moral respon¬ sibility for the events thot pre-, ceded the crisis." ..The New York World-Telegram and Sun dtwlared editorially that "Isnu'l's invasion of Egypt seems to be a clear-cut case of aggres¬ sion." It added that "Israel has violated the Egyptlon frontier. It Is now up to the three great Wes¬ tern powers to induce the Is¬ raelis to get back behind tlieir own borders." The Washington Post and Times Herald said that It could be argued that the current Mid¬ dle East crisis might have t>een prevented by a more affirmative American policy and If the United States had given "stronger re¬ assurances to Israel at^the proper time.." The editorial called Ameri¬ can policy tn the Middle East since 19S0 "a succession of poul¬ tice'treatments" but. It said "no amount of provocation can Justify aggression against EgypL" It warned Israel that the action might lose It "the sympathy of the free world." If Israel does not withdraw, the editorial declared, "there will be no honorable al¬ ternative but for the President to siuitmon Congress and request authority to act. This Is' o matter beyond the concern of partisan politics. Aggression is an offense against sfwiety, wherever It ori¬ ginates." The Baltimore Sun, after analy¬ zing the factors preceding the Israel action, condemned It edi¬ torially as "rash'and Irresponsible in the extreme, dangerous not only to the peace of tho Middle East but to the peace of the world."
