Washington (JTA) - - State Department officials told thu press this week that an allegation by Israel that Soviet pilots were flying for the Egyptian Air Force was a maneuver to pressure the United States into approving the sale to Israel of 50 Phantom jets that it is seeking. The officials spoke for "background only" and insisted on anonymity. A press association report from Jerusalem attributed • to Israeli intelligence sources a statement that beCHAPLAIN FRANKLIN C.

WASHINGTON (JTA) —. The Arab community on the West Coast is nervous over possible reprisals in the aftermath of the assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy and has "gone into h i d i n g " ' ever since it was learned that the accused gunman Is an Arab, Sirhan Sirhan, the Washington Post reported from Los Angeles. According to I'osl reporter George Larduer, there is, at the same time among Los Angeles' 25,000 Arab-Americans, a "wides p r e a d rationalization, even sympathy, for. Hie murder for which Sirhan stands Indicted. Ills anti-Zionism is w i d e l y shared," Lnrduer' wrote and "time and again it is argued that the real villain is 'international Zionism' and secondarily, Kennedy's support of Jet fighters for Israel," Mr. Larduer said that "not a

few of the Arab-American organizations show the same sort of persecution complex so widely attributed to Sirhan. It also makes them candidates for the overtures of the American far right and white racists." Arab Groups

The Post report named four A r a b - American organizations that had been active before the assassination. They are the United American Arab Congress, formed after Israel's victory in the June, 1007, Six-Day War "to help raise funds for Arab refugees and to combat 'support of Zionism by the American press'; the American Arab Citizens Council; the Americans (of Lebanese-Syrian nncestry) for America; and the Arabic Society of Americanists. The United American Arab Congress ha3 likened Israel to "Nazi Germany" and "Fascist Japan" in its propaganda, Mr. Larduer re-

ported, "Sirhan does not appear to have been a member of any of the Arabic organizations in the city," he said, but "according to one report, Sirhan and several of his brothers attended meetings of the so-called 'American Arabs' which was allegedly n youth auxiliary of the UAAC." According to the Post report, the Arab community in Los Angeles has been the target of a few minor incidents by cranks since the assassination. But Sirhan's family is under tight security guard. Mr, Larduer said it was an open question how successful the Arab organizations have been in resisting overtures from the e x t r e m e right. "One UAAC newsletter last summer warned against 'white racist groups . . . coming out in support of the Arabs' and cautioniea Its members against aligning themselves with 'Ivitemongers' " I -

NEW Y O H K - - Jews, who have tended to reject the concept of "the chosen people" during the past 100 years because of their drive to integrate into ii more open society, appear ready to reaffirm this calling in the wake of the Nazi Holocaust and the founding of'the State of Israel. Dr. Irving Grcenberg of Yeshiva University told a closing-day session of the American J e w i s h Committee's (".2nd Annual "Meet ing"Major historic events have always reshaped J e w i s h life. While the whole world are survivors of Auschwitz, it is particularly basic to Jews to reaifirm life at 'all costs." New Concepts "The key to Jewish existence." he continued, "has been the willingness to accept the obligations of. ch'oseness. A new religious emphasis has emerged since the Holocaust. As a result, this generation of young American Jews is less self-conscious about its Judaism than were their parents. And ii is less sentimental and more critical of the synagogue. "While their parents practice a vicarious religion, manifested through communal activity and a limited synagogue attendance. this generation wishes to irlte.juate religion into its life. These young people are less conventional and have feweer hangups a b o u t their identity as Jews than their parents. "Unfortunately, the religious institutions, which are geared to the thinking of the late liKiu's. are unprepared for them. And because the young people are clearer about their identity, they will be less fearful of charges of double loyalty, which they wiii dismiss."

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Although Anti-Defamation League studies four years ago found less anti-Semitism among Negroe anti-Semitism has emerged pendulum has swung the other way" and a marked rise in Nogro.s anti-Semitism has emerged during recent tensions, according to Jason Silvcrman, regional director of the B'nai B'rith ADU Mr. . Silvcrman - spoke on a special CBS-TV program which examined the problem emerging froiti the riots here following the assassination of Negro civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. last April. Mr. Silverman said that Jews were singled out although they tried lo help Negroes because the Negroes expected something from them and they became the targets of Negro frustrations.

He said that Negro anti-Semitism is dangerous and must be rooted out. A Negro spokesman interviewed on the program said that "absentee landlords" and "absentee merchants" were no longer welcome in the ghelto. He charged that white business men exploited the Negroes and declared that ghetto businesses must be taken over by Negroes.

The first phase of the study has been completed, according to Louis .1. Fox. CJFWF president. It consisted of the pooling of all known information on the Jewish population in every county in the United States, The next steps will be the selection of 10.000 sample households for personal interviews, drafting of a questionnaire and the actual interviewing. The study will provide basic information on attitudes, patterns of Jewish identification, intermarriages, the use of Jewish and other organizations and services, and contributions. It will also furnish basic demographic data —age. sex, vocation, education and similar facts. This data. Mr. Fox said, "will be an invaluable tool in designing and delivering services best suited to the current and future needs of American Jews."

By BORIS SMOLAR I* A It I S M O 0 I) S: Jews in France are nervous following the turbulent .strikes and demonstrations. And tlit-y have a good reason to he. French Jewry is nervous because of the antiSemitic tendencies that were brought out into the open by young Gaullists during the student unrest in Paris and also because of the intense hatred which General tie Gaulle displayed against former Premier Pierre Mendes-France —a Jew— whom he considers his major political opponent. What bothers the Jews in France now is the lact. that among the Gaullists who have shown their strength in the huge demonstration on the Champs Elysee there are quite a number who, by t h e i r references to Mendes-France as a Jew, are serving the purposeof the antiSemitic elements in the country. Jews in France cannot forget that an opinion poil last year found 44 per cent of the French public in agreement with General de Gaulle's remark about Jews being a •'dominating elite." Nor have they forgotten that only two years ago a survey . found roughly 20 per cent of

It mobilized i\onii ti auxiliaries, itlm cither by foot or by using ears from people who still had some gas lelt, undertook to deliver food and cash to the needy Jewish refugees residing in remote sections of tile city. This at a time when general welfare work in Hie city was compleiely paralyzed. .Some of the JDC employees volunteered to w a I k miles to deliver aid to the refugees daily. Incidentally, not a single Jewish w e l f a r e institution was cl'jttd in Paris during the general strike, despite the fact that tin; personnel belonged to the striking unions. By explaining to the unions the nature of their work, the employees were permitted to perform their lunctions. The JDC offices has remained open all the time and was in • touch with all Jewish welfare offices in the city. Thus, with the aid of devoted and eiiicient volunteers—mostly ladies—the JDC in Paris has prevented thousands of 'needy Jews from starvation in the days when they were completely isolated from the relief institutions,

By David Schwartz The English word "assassin"' comes from the Arabic "Hashashan" smokers of Hashish. During the 12th century, a mystic group of Moslems dedicated themselves to the «•* - murder of their enemies. The Israeli cm ly, Yediot Achranot, c a r ri e s a s t o r y , quoting some source that the shooting of Robert Kennedywas the work of such a revived group. A kind of internationalize d "• Schwartz El Fatah. The purpose of this murder band is to cast such terror internationally that it will cause political leaders to be afraid of lending any support to Israel. The Israeli paper admits there is no proof for this but points out that Arab papers in Lebanon recently carried stories urging the organization of an international band. It is the kind of an idea to appeal to tha fantasyloving Arab. Arab Fantasy The Arabs are highly prone to fantasy. Some of it may come from Hashish. There is a great deal of Hashish smoking in the Arab lands. Mohammed banned alcohol and Hashish takes its place with many. ..,-.. But the Arab mind, perhaps because of the long stagnation of the Middle East, seems naturally to lean to fantasy, even without drug assistance. One might have surmised as much from the statements, by the Arab leaders before and during the Six-Day War. Nasser announced he would destroy Israel. (With Hashish, he could not have said more.) The Syrian leader used the term "wipe out" instead of destroy. Another Arab leader invited the foreign correspondents to have dinner with him the next week in Tel Aviv. All that he left out was the menu. As soon as the war started, Cairo announced that the Haifa refineries were burning and Tel Aviv was being reduced to ashes.

There is the same retreat from truth in the stories that come from the family of Sirhan. Over the radio it was reported that the young alleged assassin told someone in California, that in the first Arab-Israel war he had seen an Israeli soldier cut off the breast of an Arab woman. Of course this is utter nonsense. Sirhan is 24 years old. Then ii° was four v/japc o]H Probably at the time he couldn't tell a woman's breast from an egg sandwich. It is interesting to note that the New York Times, a day later quotes Sirhan's father—in an interview in Israel—and the father says his :;on was greatly disturbed by the bombs dropped by the Israeli soldiers. There is no mention of a woman's breast. He apparently was not disturbed by the. bombs dropped by the Arabs. In the first war with the Arabs, almost every Jewish family in Israel lost at least one member. The father in Israel, says his son was also grieved by the assassination of King Abdullah, but no mention is made of the fact that Abdullah was assassinated by an Arab. Israel's Friends Robert Kennedy was a friend of Israel. So are Mr. Humphrey, Senator McCarthy, Governor Rockefeller, Mr. Nixon.. All have expressed friendship for Israel. So was Woodrow Wilson, who was proud of the American association, at least morally, with the Balfour Declaration. So was President John Adams, way back in the beginning of this country, who as the second President of the United States, wrote to Mordecai Manual Noah expressing his support of the Zionist idea. So also was the Emir Feisal, the Arab who did most to win independence for the Arab states, and who felt that the presence of the Jewish state would help with the Arabs in bringing the Near East out of the ' 2,000 years of stagnation and in step with civilization, end this vision may yet be realized, if the Arabs abandon their fantasies. ><

Many Jews in France are far from taking easy a report revealing that one of the French i n t e 1 ligence services checked last year on Jews working in defense and atomic installations, and that government authorities quietly investigated alleged "undue Jewish influence" in com-. munications media. Unofficial sources had it that the police .services looked with more than their usual routine interest into tiie activities of Jewish organizations.

negative stand on Israel. However, there is no question that there is hidden antagonism today against Jews in the ranks of the rightist parties in France. Jews are. therefore, awaiting anxiously the results of the new parliamentary elections in the country which are scheduled to take place on Sunday, June 23. They are not exactly alarmed but they are apprehensive. JDC BLITZ 'KKLIKF: The American Joint Distribution Committee added a glorious chapter to its history during the turbulent days of the general strike in Paris. There are thousands of Jewish refugees . in France toi'.ay—many of them old and sick—who depend on relief. Hundreds of them are being fed hot meals in JDC-sponsored kitchens, while others arc receiving aid in cash from Jewish philanthropic organizations financed by the JDC. During (he strike—when no autobuses, no subways, not even (axis were running—these needy Jews could not reach the soup kitchens. They had no means of transportation that could bring them (o the kitchens or to relief offices. Owners of private cars, even if they wanted to help (hem, could not do so because (hoy had no gasoline to rim the tars. . CASUALTIES The twenty years of the Arab-Israel war has claimed the lives of 7,506 Israelis, the Israel Government disclosed last week. Some 2.0C9 died in terrorist raids, 4,487 in the 1947-48 war, 191 in the 1956 Sinai campaign and 759 last June.

ll By MILTON FKIKDMAN Washington—The State Department is embarrassed to find the United States Cavalry troops in Korea coming to the rescue of Israel's application to buy Phantom jet fighter-bombers. Israel's plight has apparently had a greater impact on American soldiers stationed along the ceasefire lines in Korea than it has on the policymakers. Members of Headquarters Troop and '"A" Troop. Fourth Squadron, of the historic U.S. 7th Cavairy are patrolling the Imjin River to block Communist guerrilla penetration. They are within sight of North Korean positions. A trooper was dismayed to read in a newspaper from home that Israel was threatened by a Communist-armed buildup but that the Administration refused to sell Phantom jets to the Israelis He called this to the attention of the men in his troop, They were indignant- over this apparent stu pidity in U.S. policy. Friedman Troop Protest The name of Rep. Bertram L. Podcll, New York Democrat, was mentioned in the newspaper as urging approval of the Phantom transaction. Rep. Podell was rather surprised to receive an A.P.O. letter from Korea bearing 75 signatures. The troopers wrote that "we lend our support wholeheartedly to your efforts on behalf of the only democratic nation in tiic .Middle Kast—(he State of Israel." They explained that they were stationed facing the North Korean Communists "and we know and understand what it is like to live under the threat of MIGs lurking just across the border."

"As it is vital for us here in the Republic of Korea to have modern jets to defend ourselves, we feel that it is just as vital for Israel to have F-4 Phantom jet fighters. As American soldiers, we support our friend and ally, (he Stale of Israel," said the men of the 7th Cavalry.' It has been established that the signatories represented a crosssection of America—white and black, Protestant, Catholic and Jewish. The White House and the Department of State and Defcnso were asked to comment. None of the officials had anything to say.

We have just received the June 14 issue of the Jewish Press. To say the least, my husband and I were quite disturbed by the lead article, "Arab Fa-n:\tielsm Blamed in Kennedy Murder."
