Russia Blamed for Mid-East Tension WASHINGTON (JTA)  The United States charged that Rus- sia is aggravating Middle East tensions by shipping' "large quan- tities of arms and ammunition" into the area, in a note delivered to the Soviet Government. The French and British Governments presented similar notes to Russia. Israel-Arab "tensions continue to face the world as the most im- portant problem in the Middle East, Selvyn Lloyd, Britain's for- eign Minister, told the General Assembly of the United Nations last week. He backed John Fos- ter Dulles, U. S. Secretary of State in Mr. Dulles' proposal to the Assembly that it should use a 1949 resolution dealing with the "Essentials for Peace" in an effort to halt the Soviet Union's ',indirect aggression" in the Near East and Middle East. The British Foreign Minister attacked the Soviet Union with a charge that Moscow's entire purpose in the Middle East seemed to be "to perpetuate and not to reduce tension." He re- turned to Israel's early history at the United Nations to point out that "it was the votes o the Soviet bloc that gave the neces- sary majority for the State of Israel to be cyeated." He also re- minded the Assembly that "it was the Soviet bloc which first sent arms to Israel. He said that now the situation in Syria must be viewed with grave concern. In Tel-Aviv, Premier Ben-Gur- ion in a message to the Israel Army, declared that the contin- ued supply of arms to Syria and Jordan was a grave danger to Israel, which must maintain its armed forces in a position of high preparedness and utmost effi- ciency. The Premier added that Israel must strive to win the friendship of nations participat- ing in the European Common Market plan. Summing up Israel's achieve- ment during the past Jewish year, the Premier said it would be impossible to exaggerate the value of French aid to Israel which he called of "paramount importance." lie urged finding means to help Afro-Asian nations to help themselves Direclor of Nati0nal Affairs AJ Committee To Speak Wednesday Mr. Edwin J. Lukas, Director Israel Seeks Clues For Soviet Detention of Israel Diplomat JERUSALEM (JTA)Israel officials were long on theories but shot on facts this week in their hunt for clues as to the precise motivation of the Russian bear in his latest savage slap at the Jewish State--the extraordinary detention and third degree abus6 of an Israel diplomat by Soviet secret agents. Brushing aside all questions with a terse "I have arrived safely, that's all I can say," Eliahu Chazan, attache of the Israel Embassy Foreign Ministry refused to repozt the details of his ordeal. The Israel Government promptly filed a protest with the Krem- lin and recalled members of the Knesset Foreign Affairs Committee from summer vacations to consider the implications of the un- precedented violation of Chazan's diplomatic immunity. Guard Soviet Embassy > Israel police guards around the Soviet embassy in Ramat Gan, the Tel Aviv suburb, were doubled and mobile police units patrolled the streets leading to the embassy, while Charon pre- pared a full report for the for- eign ministry on his experiences. He told reporters it would con- tain even "more shocking de- tas" than had been published. Foreign ministry officials care- fully refrained from speculabions as to when the Soviets would reply to the protest and what the Israel Government might do if the reply was unsatisfactory or unduly delayed. Alexander Abramov, the Rus- sian ambassador to Israel, was understood to have expressed disbelief in the report of the kid- napping of Chazan. The Russian embassy announced, on the day of Chazan's return to Israel, that Abramov was taking a "short leave." Israel newspaper prompt- ly asserted that he was doing so to avoid expressing the good wishes of the diplomatic corps to President Ben Zvi, a traditional ceremony on the occasion of the Jewish New Year. Because of the absence of French Ambassador Pierre Gilbert, now home on leave, Abramov as next senior diplomat would be acting as dean of the corps and its spokesman for the New Year greetings. A number of suggested impli- cations of the Soviet breach of diplomatic courtesies were pon- dere'd in government circles, the principal one being the possibil- ity that the Russians intended to,. frighten Soviet Jewry which, in a mass demonstration, expressed its undiminished interest in Is- rael during the recent World Youth Festival in Moscow. The flaw in this guess was that there was no indication immedi- ately of a press campaign in the Soviet Union against Israel in connection with the Chazan inci- dent. A theory voiced in London diplomatic circles was that the Russians had hoped to get from Chazan the names of the Russian Jews whom the Soviets believed had organized the large demon- stration of Moscow Jews to wel- come the Israel delegation to the Youth Festival. DATE SET The Jewish National Fund Council has set the date for their annual Chanukah Festival for the evening of Sunday, December 22, it has been announced by Sam Prottas, president.
