'Ppwers' Blamed In Mid East Crisis JERUSALEM, (JTA) — Joseph TOkoah, dh^ctor-general of the Israeli Foreign Mtaistiy, asserted here that the "failure" ot the United Nations and the major powers to act to discourage Syrian aggression was contributing to current Middle East tensions. Tekoah, who is chief adviser to Israel's delegation to the cur¬ rent extraordinarv session of the Israeli-Syrian i/tixed Armistice Commission, made the charge ta a speech at the Conunercial Club. Ihe MAC session, the first in Prominent Rabbi Sides With Jackie Kennedy A promtaent rabblrwho.'has stirred the religious and scholar¬ ly communities with virrittags lOn the relevance ot traditional Juda¬ ism to contemporary issues has sided with Mrs. Jacqueline Ken¬ nedy in her efforts to delete or change passages ta William Man¬ chester's "The Death of a, Pres¬ ident." Writing ta the current issue of "Jewish Life" magaztae. Dr. Norman Lamm, Ema and Jacob Michael professor of Jewish phil¬ osophy at Yeshlva University, said that a study of the Hala- chah (Jewish Law), which makes up the bulk oi both Biblical and Talmudical literature! shows that the rights of privacy are held weightier than the claims of history. DR. LAMM offered what he described as "a Jewish view" of the ethical issues in the contro¬ versy in an article entitled "The Private Lives of Public Figures" in Jewish Life magazine. He noted that while Jewish I law stresses the obUgations of the individual to the community and evidences respect for the community's right to know, it nevertheless makes dear that "when life and the tategrity of the tadividual come tato con¬ flict with the demands ^of the group — whether community or nation — Judaism does not sanc¬ tion the tavoluntary sacrifice of the tadividual in favor of the collectivity." eight years, was arranged at the initiative ofi U.N. Secretary-Gen- eral U Thant, who stepped in when Syrian-Israeli' order ten¬ sions reached a dangerous level last month. The fourth,meeting of the MAC session, scheduled for February 9, was postponed until Februaiy 16 at the request of Syria. TEKOAH DECLARED that, as long as the U.N, was unable to guarantee Israel's rights ta [accordance with the U.N. Char- |ter and prevent Arab attacks, the U.N. was not entitled, either morally or juridically, ,to criti¬ cize Israel's actions ta defense of its tadependence and territor¬ ial tategrity. ^ The Foreign Mtaistry official also expressed the belief that U.N. resolutions with an anti- Israel character might be con¬ trary to the U.N. Charter, which guarantees equal rights to ^aU member states. He expressed "deep Regret" that the major powers, particularly those with close-Unks'-to -Syriai—were not using those,.ties to counsel the Syrian regime to moderation in its attitude toward Israel. By such lack of action, he declared, these powers indirectly contribut¬ ed to Arab aggression and bor¬ der tension. Tblks Seen as Inq^rtant, Resulting In Some Border Tranquility He, declared that the MAC talhs, even though they may not ultimately reach a successful con¬ clusion, have nevertheless been highly hnportant. He said that, at f hst, the talks had shovm that the Syrian reghne was capable, if and vi^hen it wished to do so, to control its border with Israel to halt infiltrations by Arab guerrilliss. He noted that the talks alsb had brought about a Jotat Israel-Syrian declaration, at the f b:st meettag, on Januaiy 25, ta which both countries re¬ asserted theh: desire to respect the general armistice agree¬ ments. HE SAID the situation was not all bad, declaring that so far, Israel had managed "to con¬ vince three neighbors that it is preferable to respect peace with Israel and we hope eventually to convtace the fourth." He refer¬ red to Egypt, Jordan and Leb¬ anon as the three Arab countries. and to Syria as the fourth. ISRAELI circles noted here Sunday that Syria had used the period during which the MAC talks were under way to pene¬ trate tato the demilitarized zone at the northern tip of Lake li¬ beries, over which Israel had complete sovereignty. They not¬ ed that U.N. observers arrived in the locale only after Syrian farmers had completed thehr cul¬ tivation work in the disputed zone, but that Israel has delib¬ erately refrained from taking any action against this Syrian incursion whUe the MAC dis¬ cussions were under way. mt^termmmiBtaiataDammaBnmamaiam Chronicling The News Editorial 2 Real Estate '< ' 9 Society ,. 6,7 Sliopping Guide 4 Synagogues .\ 4 Sports 10, 11 Teen Scene 5 James B.
