All Jewry Hail U. N. Acceptance of Israel
Jews all over the world will count
the day on which the historic event
of Israel's admission to the United
Nations took place as the most im
portant in Jewish history, next to
the Proclamation of the Jewish
State. This approval after one
year's embryonic development cli
maxes Israel's brilliant military and
Last Friday night the three local
Jewish congregations, orthodox,
conservative and reform, joined to
gether in a special service to give
thanks. Thousands of similar celebrations took place
throughout the world.
As a member of the United Nations, the State of Israel
can now take its full and rightful place in the community of
nations, which is striving to build a just and permanent peace
for all peoples throughout the universe. We look to Israel as
a stabilizing force for political amity and harmony and as a
source of economic prosperity throughout the Middle East.
No state in the world has a greater interest than Israel
in the establishment of enduring peace, and no people has a
lengthier tradition of justice than the Jewish people with its
heritage of prophetic teachings.
Through the act of admission, the United Nations has
carried to logical conclusion its own recommendations and
decisions, and has thus further strengthened the status and
prestige of the world organization.
We, the publishers of The Southern Jewish Weekly, who
have consistently fought for the Jewish state despite difficul
ties with anti-Zionists in this area, hail with deep joy and grat
ification the 59th member of the U. N. We salute the people
and government of Israel, who with such distinguished states
manship, courage and dedication have brought Israel to
equality among the nations of the world.

U. Nf ECHOES
The talk you hear now about Israel among diplomats in
the lobby of the United Nations headquarters is quite differ
ent from what was heard prior to Israel’s admission to the
U. N. . . . There is, for instance, talk of the possibility that
the Israeli delegation at the U. N. may soon include an Arab
citizen of the Jewish state . . . And there is much talk about
Bernard Baruch’s intention to visit Israel this summer . . .
Also, a lot is being heard about a wish expressed by Vice
President Alben W. Barkley to go to Israel “in his later
years” . . . The Vice President hopes “to sit in the shade” of
a forest planted in his name by the Jewish National Fund...
Aubrey Eban’s popularity in the ranks of the United Nations
now exceeds that of any of the older U. N. delegates . . . The
Arab delegations at the U. N. are anticipating a change of
leadership in their ranks . . . Emir Adil Arslan, a leading
Syrian nationalist, is expected to leave Syria shortly for Lake
Success ... He will take the place of Faris el-Khoury, present
head of the Syrian delegation, who was the leading “brain
truster” of all Arab groups at the U. N.
