OHIO-KENTUCKY AOL REGIONAL BOARD MEETING IN COLUMBUS NOV. 22-23 by political and propaganda ex¬ citement but I am persuaded that all people of the Middle East yearn for stability and growth." Recalling the visit by Mrs. Golda Melr, Israel's Foreign Min¬ ister to London, Mr. Macmlllan deplored the fact that he was ab¬ sent from London at the time. He stressed that the result of Mrs. Meir's visit was that "a good many misunderstandings have been removed and a great deal of suspicion and doubt has been cleared up and this is all to the good. We wish Israel well and I trust our relations will remain strong and good on a basis of mutual understanding, trust and cooperation." He said peace and prosperity in the Middle East would depend to a large extent on acceptance of such standards by all concern, ed. He Insisted It was in the com¬ mon interests of those countries that relations between the United Kingdom and Israel "cohtlnue to move forward with harmony." OPPOSITION leader Hugh Gaitskeil expressed a similar view, declaring that he believed that all Israel wants Is to live in peace and he hoped that "she will be allowed to do so." Mr. Gaitskeil told the 600 dinner guests that the Arab countries for which he expressed sympathy, should devote more energy to their Internal affairs because it was through economic develop, ment that peace would eventually come to the Middle East. Jo Grlmmond, Liberal Party leader, told the dinner that Is¬ rael's future must ultimately lie in "a fruitful alliance with her neighbors." Peace In the Middle East will be a reality, he declared, when Israel Is eventually accept¬ ed among her neighbors aa a true Mediterranean power. He expres¬ sed his opinion that Israel has "enormous contributions to make in the Middle East." Ambassador Elath, replying to the speeches, stressed Britain's special place In the history of the Jewish people and of Israel as the nation responsible for the Balfour Declaration which guar¬ anteed the Jewish people a home¬ land after 2000 years of exile. "BRITAIN was first among the great powers to recognize the his¬ toric rights of the Jewish people in their ancient homeland and undertook to facilitate the up¬ building there of a national home," the envoy said. "in so doing, Britain gave wel. come encouragement to our peo¬ ple's age-old hopes and to our en- deavors to achieve In our time that for which earlier generations through 2000 years of exile had venteured to pray and hope."
