JfiVfr, 2t\\/ Serving Columbus, Dayton, Centrat and Southwestern Ohio v^ ''I Vol. 44, No. 25 FRIDAY, JULY I, 1966 — 13 TAMMUZ 5726 itt D«*o<»j t»,AiiijNJpa The World's Week Compiled from JTA and WUP Reports NBW YORK, (JTA) — King Faisal, of Saudi Arabia, who delivered antl-Jewlsh remarks In Washington last week, and was, as a result, snubbed by New York's mayor Lindsay and Gov. Rockefeller, made an effort ,Sunday to "clarify" his attitude. In a statement for the Arab press, broadcast to Saudi Arabia through the facilities of the 'Voice of America, which is owned and operated by the United States Government, he said: "We are not against the religion of the Jews, but against the Zipnists and the Jews who help the Zionists." A spokesman for-the king also quotedthe monarch as counseling the acceptance of those _, Jews who had made their home in Palestine long before it became the Independent nation of Israel In 1948. "Those Jews who were in Palestine have a right to stay there, but the —Jews who came from outside are intruders," the king was reported to have asserted. The spokesinan then added that Islam had always regarded itself as "a continuation of Judaism and Christianity," but he did not make it clear if the king had made, this —point, or If he considered this as further evidence that no attack on the Jews as a whole had been intended. i '"j '.. '" JEBVSAIjBIM, (JTA — A tombstone was unveiled Fri¬ day over the grave of the late Moshe Sharett, at Tel Aviv, and impressive memorial services in his honor were held here. Sharett, one-time Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, and chairman of the Jewish Agency executive, died July 7, 1965. WASHINGTON, (JTA) — The plenary session of the National Community Relations Advisory Council, central advisory body of eight national Jewish organizations and 78 local Jewish Councils, was split here over a resolution concerning the Viet Nam war, and expressing fear that the right of protest and dissent is threatened. The resolution was presented at Sunday's meeting of the four-day,NCRAC ^ session, whichils^l»lng_rf(fe,ndedMbyt25a„i^jl^gates„Jtrom all;^ parts ~of the country. It "was vetoed" by" the "Jewisli War' Veterans of America, one of the eight national organizations affiliated with the NCRAC. Immediately, the seven other national organizations voted for it. Under NCRAC pro¬ cedure, any of the eight national constituent groups can exercise a veto on a policy action, to prevent Its issuance in the name of the NCRAC. Thus the resolution is hot an NCRAC measure but an expression of the seven groups which voted for it. TOBONTO, (WUP) — A reappraisal of Jewish tradi¬ tional thinking to meet the challenge of the modern scien- tlflc-bent Jsoclety was urged here laSt week by leading Reform rabbis attending the annual meeting of the Central Conference of American Rabbis. Rabbi Jacob J. Welnstein, who was re-elected president, declared that the reappraisal of Judaism would involve "the shifting of God from meta¬ physics to politics." Such a reappraisal, he noted, would mean that a belief in God "motivates man in making a decision on all matlters pertaining to the improvement of the human being — in such areas as civil rights, the creation of peace and order."

Gen. de Gaulle then said that France also has good relations?;)with the countries in the Middle East, mentioning Is¬ rael specifically among the states in thalf'region. THE FRENCH JSEADER then stressed the need for nwiintaih- Ing the territorial status quo In the iMiddle East. France, along with fhe United States widBrlt ain, is a partner to theTiipar- tite Declaration for the.guaran¬ tee of the Middle East bordors, issued by the Isthree'-powers in 1950. ¦ ^ Israel's Ambassador to Paris, Walter Eytan, was understood! to have requested in a visit to the French Foreign Minister, Maur¬ ice Couve de Murville, a week ago, that President de Gaulle raise the point of including the USSR in the 1950 Declaration.

Israel's Foreign Ministry sources were not prepared to discuss that report today. How¬ ever It was tadicated that Israel will' launch a. strong political and diplomatic offensive On that issue'soon in the capitals of the sb£Euromart states — France, West Gertnahy, Italy, the Neth- ^ erlands, Belgium and ' Luxem¬ bourg. ISRAEL IS disappotated ovei- what officials here call the "mgg- ger and disappointtag" residts of its long' drive to establish a link with'the EEC. In the view of the Israeli officials, finner action than ever must be undertaken to assure Israel's ability to ex¬ port goods to the Euromart coun¬ tries; and such results can be achieved only through associate membership ta the EEC. In Brussels, headquarters of the Euromart, a jotat oommittee of the EEC and Israel si^ed a ' protocol yesterday deftatag Is¬ rael's current link with ihe EEC, which, jlsrael's^delegationrj^edi, "'•a" "dijsappiointment" The proto¬ col was signed after a warm debate in which. Israel potated out that the present trade ar¬ rangements between Israel and the Euromart are. too limited.

The ex-schoolteacher who has become one of America's favor¬ ite humorists and lecturers has been called the most unprofess¬ ional comedian in show business. No less an autliority than the late'Joe Laurie, Jr., once told Sam during his early days as an entertainer, "Sam, you do everythtag wrong. But don't ever change." HE LAUGHS AT his own jokes. He bounces around. He misuses his hands. But they love him. After graduation from Brook¬ lyn College with a B.A. degree Sam went on to get his M.A, from Columbia. He then taught Spanish at Samuel' Tilden High School, in Brooklyn, for ten years. He also spent five years as a Guidance Cduiiselor.

Waldor, Na¬ tional Commander of the Jewish War Veterans of the U.S.A., charged. The national head of more than 100,000 veterans of the Jew¬ ish faith said that Ktag Faisal has violated the hospitality of the American people and "di-s-s paraged a section of our . citi¬ zenry. , "PARTIOULARLT degrading is the fact that the Arabian Ktag made his remarks while on an official State visit sponsored by the U.S. State Department at a press conference designed to amplify the malicious impact of his words to attract natidn- wide attention," Conunander Waldor, a Newark, New Jersey, practicing attomey, declared. He said that Ktag Faisal's "anti - Jewish diaracterizations went beyond any legitimate dip¬ lomatic expression of differences Ijetween the Arab world and the State of Israel. "ONLY AN OFFICIAL dis¬ avowal by our State Department can even begta to mend the dip¬ lomatic rifts implied by the Arab ruler's brutal statements," Com¬ mander 'Waldor concluded. (EDITOR'S NOTE: The Faisal controversy on the national front is not without its local counter¬ part ta light of the fact that h's son, Prtace Faisal, Is slated to speak at the Columbus Bustaess University this month. Is every controversial state¬ ment concemtag Israel to be the basis of such widespread reac¬ tion? We hope not! Jewish Youths Give President A Dog For five mtautes, Skippy, a two-month-old beagle, with an taquls'ltive nose and a playful disposition, was the property of President Johnson.
