WASHINGTON -- That a subtle, bt perceptible change in United States foreign policy in the Middle East has taken place has now become Clear to observers here. And for Israel, and Israel's friends, the view from Washington is a most disturbing one. On the surface, and in the vehement view of the State Department, American-Israel relations are un- changed. In th technical sense, this is true. Cultural exchanges between the two nations are constantly in- creasing, So is U. S. economic assistance, two-way trade and all the other outward trappings of bilateral relation- ships. But a new factor has clouded the picture--the eternal international triangle. U.S. foreign policy makers are embarked on a new campaign to win over Arab friendship particularly Egypt's Nasser. The result, say observers, is the begin- ning of a steady process of erosion of the old United States objectives of keeping the Middle East as quiescent as possible a view with which Israel has been in hearty accord. Evidence of the change is aiready mounting. Cairo Radio has stepped up its anti:Israel propaganda blasts, and it takes little maginhtion to conjecture what a U. S. courted Nasser can do in terms of stirring up still fur- ther large doses of anti-Israel feeling in the Arab world which never has!needed additional encouragement any- way. The point is, that while the U. S. has not turned anti- Israel, its new "be kind to the Arabs" campaign has served to embolden the self-appointed leader of the Arab Middle East. Nasser is able to point to increased U. S. aid as evidence of tacit approval on the part of the State Department to all Arab actions against Israel. And while this may not be factually correct, U.S. actions can, and are, being so interpreted. It should be poirited out that Nasser's boasts of U. S support came against a backdrop of two serious Israeli reversals in the United Nations last December's vote in the General Assembly against a 16-nation resolution calling for direct Israel-Arab peace talks, and last April's Security Council censure. The United States played an active+role in both cases, to the delight of the Arabs and the consternation of Israel. Israelis, who in the recent past have been character- ized as tolerant of United States global commitments and its need to retain friendly relations with the Arab states, have now taken a second look at U.S. policy and ar obviously disturbed by what they see. For the first rime'in several years, Israe has officially expressed its misgivings over U.S. Middle Eastern policy. Within recent weeks, Israeli Ambassador Avraham Harman has spelled out in detail to Secretary Dean Rusk his government's concern. While, obviously, the details of their discussion .remains a closely guarded diplomatic secret, it is a fairly safe guess that Harman raised: 1.: the matter of the U.N. censure and the Security Council's failure to make any mention of Israel's provo- cation in connection with its retaliatory actions; 2. the alreal;ty-apparent ferment being created by Nasser as a result of increased IJ. S. aid. The fact that Harman met with Rusk within a couple of weeks after his "return to Washington from a two- week recall visit to Jerusalem gave added urgency and authenticity to the meeting. Furthermore, the meeting was held at the request of the Israeli ambassador. The new U.S. policy of more friendship towards the Arabs stems, according to State Department sources-- from what it considers the hard-headed realities of the situation. There i] a general concession that U.S. aid cannot actually win over Arab loyalty including Nas- ,:/, Egypt but the belief is that it can serve to neutral- :xe lmstile feelings towards the U. S. In this sense, Egypt i:: being likened to Yugoslavia. In pursuing this line, the State Department has over- looked some vital factors. For one thing, Egypt contin- ues its anti-American radio tirades to say nothing of i t verbal assaults against Israel. For another, it contin- ties to purchase large quantities of its Soviet bloc nation :,ms, while claiming at the same time that it is striving ;, beef-up its economy at home. What is perhapsmost disturbing about the whole af- fair is the State Department's willingness to rationalize away all contrary evidehce, It accepts  or seems to Egypt's contention that its arms purchases are for defen- sive purposes only. But is doesn't explain how long- range bombers one of Nasser's favorite purchases can be classified as "defense." As to the anti-American tirades, and the stepped-up propaganda blasts against Israel, Department officials mark these up to "Arab talk," but they avoid.the real crux of the question which is why Nasser needs to continue these hostile verbal actions if he is so busy developing his domestic economy.

Correspondent in Israel) (Copyright, 1962. Jewish Telegraphic Agency. Inc.) ONE EICHMANN AIDE RISKED LIFE FOR 'HIS' JEWS UNITED NATIONS, N. Y.-- By extension, the United Na- tions "beat" covers the world. Correspondents often receive information--often it is out- and-out propaganda -- from many member and non-mem- ber governments. The Soviet Union floods the racks and sometimes bends the ears with its stuff. Material comes in from Katanga and Samoa, France and nationalist China, do-good organizations inter- ested in everything from hu- man rights to vivisection, offi- cial releases literally covering the globe from Austria to Zanzibar. Seldom is this stuff, even from friendly govern- ments, worth very much either as news or feature material. But, once in a while, some- thing comes in that should no be ignored. Recently, the Jewish Tele- graphic Agency carried a dis- patch from Israel, reporting that, on the Day of Remem- brance, May 1, the Israel Gov- ernment, represented by For- eign Minister Golda Meir, dedicated on Har Hazikaron (Mount Remembrance), in Je- rusalem, two rows of newly planted tr e as, named "The Avenue of th Righteous Gen- tiles." This boulevard com- memorates the work of rescue performed during the Nazi holocaust by many heroic non- Jews not only in Denmark but also in Poland and Russia, even in Germany itself. Non- Jews who performed such la- bors of love were special Gov- ernment guests at these cere- monies. Among them was Os- car Schindler, a German who had worked directly under the aegis of the apparatus headed by Adolf Eichmann himself, The story of Mr. Schindler's work has just been told in the influential West German newspaper, Die Welt, of Ham- burg. Here is a reprint of that article: "He calls himself a God- [earing Christian who obeys the Ten Commandments and ries to act according to the ;-equirement 'love thy neigh- bor as thyself.' He believes hat nothing that he has ever done has made him better than his fellow-men. He says that he merely fulfilled his duty as a Christian. "For more than a thousand persons, however, he is almost a saint, while he hiniself con- alders it to be a matter of course that he disobeyed the extermination orders of Eich- mann. Those thousand people ought to know, for they are Jews. And he saved their lives. His name is Oscar Schindler. The then 35-year-old Catholic was a successful businessman h'om the Sudetenland. As a counterespionage agent of the Wehrmacht he was sent not to the front but to occupied Po- land to 'Aryanize' Jewish busi- ness undertakings. "In contrast to others who were given jobs like this, Herr Schindler did not rob the Iews of their property. He took over a Cracow factory, enlarged it with his own money, and proceeded to man- ufacture enamel-ware. "At this point his unobtru- sive struggle with the Gestapo began: When the order was given that all Jewish workers must be dismissed, Schindler enlarged his factory again in order to be able to employ more Jews. In 1940, he had 150 Jews on his payroll; in 1943, 900; and by the end of the war, more than 1,100. "For a certain length of time, it was possible for these Jews to move unhindered be- tween the factory and the ghetto. But the time came when Eichmann's myrmidons aegan to arrest Schindler's men as they walked to and fro and Schindler went into ac- tion. Toward the end of 1942, when Himmler had ordered the 'final solution for the Jew- ish problem' and ghettos were being liquidated and death camps established, Schindler built a camp of his ownin the courtyard of his factory. There, the workers lived with their wives, their children, their parents. "Once, Schindler was able to divert Several rail/ay cars in which Jews were to be taken to a death camp. When the cars were opened, theY contained 16 corpses, and the persons still alive looked like skeletons. With his wife, Schindler set up a hospital in the fctory courtyard, and managed to get hold of three Jewish doctors who nursed lhe undernourished back to health. "Around this time, Schind- ler began to equip his Workers with weapons. He managed to get decent clothes for them bY bartering jewels for textiles and finally even setting up a tailor shop. "Thus they awaited the end of the Nazi era. As it ap- proached, Schindler took his Jews to the American zone of occupation, to make absolutely sure that he was fulfilling his duty to his fellow-men to the very last moment. "After the war, having lost all his property in the Sude- tenland, Schindler settled in Frankfurt-on-the-Main. In his 3overly, Jewish organizations gave what help they could. Everything he undertook to earn a living remained with- out success, however. Then 'his' Jews went into operation for him. Half of them are liv- mg in Israel, the rest are scattered throughout the world, so that they are a kind of world-wide organization. From the Federal Govern, ment, Schindler recently got one-third of the 150,000 Deutschemarks ($37,500) that is coming to him as restitution for what he lost during the Nazi period. "Among the 'Schindler Jews' in Israel are judgeS, lawyers, doctors and promin- ent businessmen. They sent him his ticket for the trip to Israel and invited him to stay with them as long as he wishes." OUR FILM FOLK, BY HERBERT LUFT Nathan Silberberg, Israeli pro.ducer of the contem- plated "A Walk in the Desert," has arrived in Holly- wood to sign a director and star for his forthcoming picture. He tells me that the story, written by George Tabori, deals with the men and women who came to Israel to find freedom. It is not a historic picture and will not depict the plight of the Jews in Europe during the time of the Nazis. Silberberg emphasizes that his film, produced in English, will be the first major Israeli vehicle for worldwide distribution. Seattle Hebrew School Students Entertain Twenty students of the Seat- tle Hebrew School entertained the residents of the Kline Gal- land Home on June 6 with a surprise party and perform- ance in honor of Shavuot, the traditional Feast of the First Fruits. Boxes and baskets filled with fresh and canned fruits, which were donated by the students to the Home, were presented by the performers. Individual performances on various musical instruments, group singing and Israeli danc- ing filled out a program "which was thoroughly enjoyed by the surprised residents, as was evi- denced by their gracious ap- plause," stated Rabbi Samuel Graudenz, Hebrew School principal. Mrs. Harold Rosenbaum, of the school faculty, was in charge of the program. JAKE ROCKOV HEATING OIL CO.
