I96& — 19 AV 5726 Dcvolw is AivMnMii Comay Bares Syrian Destruction Plan Br DAVID HOROWITZ UliitTED NATIONS, (WUP) — In his lengthy speech before the Security Council last week —¦ a speech in whidi he listed a sciirles of 55 Syrian sabotage and mining incidents causing havoc on the IsraeU border between Janucuy 3, 1965; and Jidy 20, 1966— 'Ambassador Michael Comay presented facts revealing a Syrian blueprint for the destruction of Israel. IHE ISRAELI Ambassador cited the foUowing steps the .Govenutieht of Damascus has undertaken to implement its blueprint: 1; The arming and tralntag of five to six thousands Palestin¬ ians which is nbw preceedtag to Syria, \vith the avowed, purpose of iisliig them as a spearhead ta the coming war on Israel; 2. The attempt to disrupt nor¬ mal civiUan life ta the Israel border region by harasstag gim- fire from Syrian fortified posi¬ tions. 3. The maUcious and iUicit pro¬ ject to curtaU Israel's normal and vital water supply, and 4. The promotion of sabotage, activities through a specially created sabotage organization called El-Fatah (conquest) or El-Asefa (storm). Commenttag on this blueprint for the destruction of the Jewish State, Comay told the Security Council that "the posture of bj- Jured (innocence t^en by, the Syrian spokesnien at the UN is astonishing. It hardly reflects what Syrian leaders say at hoine, where they: have; ^bUcly com¬ mitted Syria to the concept^of an ttadedared guerriUa War against Israel. This doctrine of naked aggression by bn VN member- State against another is put for¬ ward not by anonymous hot¬ head," Cpmay stated, "but by the highest bifficlals of the RepubUc of Syria, and by the commander of its armed fordes." The dynamic Israeli UN spokesman then cited the Presi¬ dent of Syria as havtag made the foUowing statement as recently as May 22: "WE XEARN to open the bat¬ tle .. . We raise the banner of the People's War of Liberation . .. We want total war — a war that knows no bounds and that WiU destroy Israfel . . .Thia wiU >e total war, the first aim of Which wU be a scorched earth poUcy." TRUMAN PEACE CENTER DEDICATED U. S.

This is a responsibUlty which the UJFC takes very, seriously and discharges with a great deal of prudence and discretion. THB FUND RECOGNIZES its responsibUlty to raise maximum funds through a federated com¬ munity drive. This year the Fund raised and made available for distribution $725,000.

In a letter sent to the Presi¬ dent of the Security (Council last week, signed by Issa Nakhleh and Omar Azouni, the Delega¬ tion requested that, ta order "to avert another war in the Middle East and possibly another Thhrd World War, the Council adopt the followtag course of action: "DECLARE THAT the admis¬ sion of the Zionist racist minori¬ ty regtaie of aggression to the UN is contrary to the principles 6f Intemational law and was ac¬ complished by pressure and un¬ due influence and therefore is nuU and void abanitio and there¬ upon the Security Council rec¬ ommends, ta accordance with Article 6 of the Charter, that the General Assembly expel the Zionist racist minority regime of agression from the United Na¬ tions. "Impose sanctions and order interruption of all relations with, and place tin .embargo on ship¬ ment of weapons; "OAIX UPON members of the UN to open the doors of their countries for receivtag the two miUion transplanted alien Jews from Palestine."

Reports Aiding 43,000 Jews In 1965 NEW YORK, (JTA) — "In 1965 there were as many Jews ta need of Jotat Distribution (Committee assistance as ta 1964," Charles H. Jordan, JDC executive vice-Chairman and director- general, stated ta the agency's annual report. "But," he stressed, "ta 1965 JDC had lost $7,00,000 — nearly a quarter of its 1964 tacome." This loss represented reparalEions money which the JDC had been receivtag annually stace 1954 through the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Agatast Germany. The grants, which av¬ eraged around $7,000,000 annual¬ ly, ended ta 1964 and desirtte ta¬ creased efforts by American Jewish communities through the United Jewish Appeal, only a. fraction of that sum was made up ta 1965, Jordan reported. AS A RESULT, he said, JDC was forced to curtail its pro¬ grams ta many countries. Even so, JDC aided nearly 413;000 needy Jews ta 1965, compared with 430,000 assisted the year before. Among cutbacks he noted were cinrtailment of 'clothtag dis¬ tribution to children ta Morocco, Tunlsia>and Iran; tightening of eUglbUlty requirements for ad¬ mission to the old age homes of Malben, the JDC welfare pro¬ gram ta Israel; and a cut of more than $1,000,000 In JDC sv*- vention to the French Jewisii community despite the presenc^ of thousands of needy Jewish refugees, particiUariy from North Africa. "In every one of the thirty countries' ta whldi JDC oper¬ ates, there have been cutbacks," Jordan stated. "We tried to cut without caustag suffering. But In the process people were hurt| people did suffer." 91,000 Aided ta Isrsel;, 70,000 ta Europe; :. 66,600 in ]U[08lem Lands Of the 413,000 aided in 1965, 97,000 were assisted in Israel, over 79,000 in Europe, and more than 56,500 ^ta the Moslem coim- ed by the JDC reUef-ta-transit program which cuts across nai. tional boundaries. Expenditures for the year to¬ taled $22,077,000, Jordan report¬ ed. Expenditures ta 1964 were close to $29,400,000. JDC re¬ ceives the bulk of its funds from the campaigns of the United Jewish Appeal. IN AN INTBODUOTOBY message to the report, Louis Broido, newly-elected JDC chair, man, paid tribute to Edward M. M. Warburg for his outstand¬ tag work during the 25 years he served as chairman of the Jotat Distribution Committee. Broido, who is Commissioner of the New York aty Depart¬ ment of Commerce and Indus¬ trial Development, said: "Duj;4ng most of that qiwrter-icfehtury, I was a member of the Adminis¬ trative Committee of the JDC %nd I had the opportunity to ob¬ serve at close range what he did and what was done by Moses A, I.eavitt, our long-time execu¬ tive vice-chairman whom wo so unfortunately lost ta 1965. We are aU deeply grateful to both of them." THE DBASTIO OUT in JDC income imposes responsibility on members"Of the National. Coun- jCili Sal Sattasky, JDC National Council chairman declared in a message ta the annual report. He stressed the importance of keep- tag the communities taformed of JDC's stringent financial situa- ' tlon and the ^pffect on needy Jews ov^eas.. He lauded the agency's Gohuniinity Information Program wliich brtags JDC country directors and other over- tries. Another 5,000 received aid ggag personnel to Jewish com- in other countries.
