The emergency meeting was called to plan efforts to neutralize the situation created by the new Anti-Jewish and Nazi provocations. These irtcluded a virulently anti- Semitic letter to the DAIA by a re¬ tired Air Force general and a ceremony in a church by a neo- Nazi group featuring a typical Nazi harangue. Dr. Isaac Goldenberg. DAIA president, said that the DAIA had been assured by Police Chief Ins¬ pector Nicholas Rodriguez that in¬ vestigations of some anti-Jewish assaults during the past two weeks have been undertaken. Dr. Goldenberg also said that he will meet with Defense Minister Leopoldo Suarez about the involve¬ ment of the Air Force officer, Brig. Gen. Gilberto Hidalgo Oliva. and Col. Alexandre Laciar, who addressed the neo-Nazi church meeting, in anti-Jewish extremist actions. The DAIA leader said he also planned to meet with Antonio Cardinal Caggiano, Archbishop of Buenos Aires, about Nazi-style meetings in churches. The meeting at which Col. Laciar gave what the DAIA called a typ¬ ical Nazi speech took place on Ar¬ gentine Flag Day, a national hol¬ iday. It was held by members of the Guardia Restaurojora Nation¬ alists. Dressed in Nazi-style, the participants swore loyalty to their Nazi principles in the Nuestra Sen¬ ora Church of Buenos Aires. Gen. Olivia's statement to the DAIA, wjiich he published as an open letter in local newspapers, attacked Zionism as virtually the source of all the evjis Argentina is now suffering. He charged that the "daily provocations" of the DAIA "exceed the limits of toler- ability." The former commander of the Cordoba Air garrison declared also that "the Jewish community which you. represent forgets its duties towards the nation which received it so generously. The time has ar¬ rived to remind your co-religion¬ ists that they do not tread on conquered land. Do not misunder¬ stand our Christian patience and do not get'erroneous ideas. A sleeping lion is not a dead lion." Following this "introduction," the retired officer said that "with the double \yeapons of Masonry and Communism, Zionism has started its action." Accusing the DAIA of having "infiltrated its Zionist co-nationals in all important Government posi tions. Gen President Illia "only symbolically presides over a government man¬ aged by Zionists." He also com¬ plained about "Zionist tyranny" over the press, television and liter- atiu-e. The letter was published in several dailies.

The World's Week Compiled from JTA and WUP Reporh Orthodox Rabbis Are Rebuffed By A.J.C. NEW YORK (JTA)—The American JewishCommlttee took vigorous issue this week with a complaint of the Orthodox Rab¬ binical Council of America that the Committee had involved itself in "areas of theology." The charge was based on efforts hy (he A.IC Committee in connection with a statement on Catho- lic-.lcwlsh relations pending iwfore the Ecumenical CJouncil. The Rabbinical Council urged at its annual convention this week, that interreligious coopera- ISRAEL PAVILION DISPLAYS COPY OF OFFENSIVE MURAL NEW YORK, (JTA) — Refusal of the Jordan Pavilion at the World's Fair to remove its anti- Israel mural led the American Israel Pavilion this week to an¬ nounce a display of a blown-up reproduction of the mural along with a poem stressing peace. Thousands of Fair visitors, in- OUva charged^ that- duding Jews, have paid .an admis¬ sion charge to enter the Jordan Pavilion. The reproduction and the poem .will be placed in the Ameri¬ can-Israel courtyard where there is no admission fee. The poem called "Peace Through Understanding," the World's Fair theme, and was written by Harold C. Caplin, Ameri¬ can-Israel World's Fair Corpora¬ tion board chairman. The poem is patterned after the inscription on the Jordan mural and begins: "Be¬ fore you enter have you a minute to spare to hear a word on Israel and enjoy our dreams." Another effort at removal of the mural failed this week when World's Fair President Robert Moses rejected a resolution by Fair directors to investigate the mural. His ruling was backed by a majority of the directors.

The Prime Minister also expressed confidence in President Johnson's devotion to maintaining peace in the Middle East and the protection of Israel's territorial integrity. "President Johnson's aides took pains to convince us that tijey will prevent and frustrate any attempt at aggres- sic?h Bgainst Israel and that this is not merely an expres¬ sion of a wish but a firm political decision," tho Prime Minister reported to the Knesset. BONN (JTA)—The first reading of a draft proposal to forTaid West German nationals to work on cert;tin types of weapons projects in other countries submitted bv the Social Democrats, took place in the West German Pari ament this week. The draft was transferred to the Parliamentary Legal Commission for further consideration. The draft listed a variety of weapons and other arma¬ ments to be banned for the nationals in foreign countries. NEW YORK (JTA)—The Hassidic organizer of a citi¬ zens car patrol in the crime-ridden Crown Heights section of Brooklyn reported thii? week that crime in the area had dropped by 90 per cent since the patrols began, l^olice of¬ ficials, noting that the area had been heavily reinforced with additional police, confirmed that the situation had im¬ proved. The police reinforcement followed the formation of the Hassidic radio-equipped car patrol last May 17 after a wave of muggings, assaults and murders in the area. STOCKHOLM (JTA)—The Central Council of Swedish Jewish Communities sent a communication to visiting Pre¬ mier Khrushchev urging him to intervene to end discrimi¬ natory measures against Soviet Jews. In Copenhagen, tho Scandinavian Jewish Youth Federa¬ tion, representing 3,000 members, issued an appeal for fa¬ cilities for a cultural exchange between the Jews of the Soviet Union and the Scandinavian countrie."!. The Federa¬ tion offered to arrange^ theater performances, concerts and lectures by Soviet Yidtlish artists in the Scandinavian coun¬ tries and to assist in arrangements by Scandinavian Jews to give performances in the Soviet Union. NEW YOKK (WUP)—"The Aswan Dam Is one of Is¬ rael's best deterrent's against a possible attack by Nasser." Thus declared the noted author Pierre Van I'aasscn dur¬ ing a recent TV interview here. "President Nasser knows that the moment IiTgypt launches an attack on the Jewish State, Israeli jets will be on their way not only for a speedy bombing of Cairo but also of the Aswan Dam, the destruction of which may mean more to Nas.ser than the destruction of his neighbor to thg. ./ north." HAMHt'KO (WUP)—A recent issue'of tlie local news magazine "Spiegel" published a front page photograph show¬ ing a number of West German Ambassadors all of whom (continued on page 4) tion between ChrLstians and Jews should be conducted on the basis of "sound sociological doctrine rather than the complicated area of theology." The criticism was rebuffed in a statement issued by AJ Commit¬ tee president Morris B. Abram, who asserted that better understanding and cooperation between Jews, Catholics and Protestants had been a major responsibility of the or¬ ganization since it was formed jn 1906. He said one of the primary objectives of the Committee's human relations program was the need to counteract the stereotype of the Jews as "Christ-killer," and "underlying source of hostility to the Jew for almost two mil- lenia." Contending that the essential first step was to stimulate Christ¬ ian religious educators and inter¬ group research specialists to exam¬ ine Christian teachings to under¬ stand that such material contained material reinforcing that stereo¬ type, the statement said that "this centuries-old problem" was first projected as a subject for scientific analysis 30 years ago. At that time, the AJ Committee suggested to Protestant leaders a series of self- studies of church- and Sunday school teaching materials. "Out of tiiis suggestion have come historic findings, first under the aegis of Drew University, later at Yale Divinity School," the state¬ ment said. "Early in 1963, Yale University Press published 'Faith and Prejudice' by Dr. Bernhard Olson, the report of Yale's seven- year project in this field. Only recently a report on a parallel .self- study of Catholic teaching at St. Louis University was released and is already having a profound in¬ fluence." Asserting that the movement tow¬ ard critical self-examination by re¬ ligious groups of the impact of their teachings on other groups was "in part, traceable" to the AJ Commit¬ tee's "pioneer work," Mr. Abram said that "a great impetus" was given to that movement by the ad¬ vent of Pope John XXHX and the convening of the Vatican (Council," and particularly through the ef¬ forts of Cardinal Bea, head of the Secretariat for the Promotion of Christian Unity, who prepared the draft on Catholic-Jewish relations.

HERZL By DAVID HOROWITZ NEW YORK (WUP)—Zeev Jabotinsky, who died in Hunter, N.Y., on July 9, 19-10, and who undoubtedly did more than any other son of Israel in our time to stir Jewish youth for militant in\plomentation of Herzl's ".lewish State" in Palestine, will be flown to Israel for reburial on Mt. Herzl. The official state ceremony will take place on Thursday, July 9, the 24th yahrzeit of his death, adjacent to the grave of Theodor Herzl.

Israel was established in 1948 under the Premiership of David Ben-Gurion, and despite continu¬ ous pleas made by numerous worid Jewish leaders as well as by non- Jews of renown urging Ben-Gurion to act in honoring Jahotinsky's last will and testament, no action was taken by the B.G.
