Knesset Votes Confidence
in Israel Government
JERUSALEM. (JTA) —A vote of non-confidence on the foreign
policy of the Israel Government, proposed by Mapam members in
the Knesset, was rejected by a vote of 63-28 this week at a Knesset
session which lasted until midnight. Voting against the govern
ment were members of the Mapam, Herut, Fighters Party and the
Communists.
A motion introduced by the
Herut demanding the resignation
of the entire Cabinet was defeat
ed by a vote of 63-11, with the
Mapam deputies abstaining. The
General Zionists cast their ballots
both times for the government.
However, they demanded that
the proclamation of Jerusalem
«s the eternal and actual capital
of Israel be embodied in the Is
rael Constitution as the first par
agraph of that document. Their
request was referred to a special
parliamentary committee which
is now studying the Jerusalem
problem.
Replying to speakers who crit
icized the foreign policy of the
government, Premier David Ben
Gurion said that “Jerusalem is to
day Israel’s de facto and de jure
capital. 1 ’ He declared that the
decision of the United Nations to
place Jerusalem under interna
tional trusteeship is no disaster.
“The Jewish right to Jerusalem is
bigger and stronger than any such
decision,” he said. At the same
time, he emphasized that Israel,
more than anybody else, respects
and obeys the United Nations.
Addressing himself to the
Christian world, Mr. Ben Gurion
declared that the Jewish people
will never bow its head before
anti-Semitism insofar as it exists
in the Christian world, but will
always honor its obligations to
Christianity by assuring the ab
solute protection of the Holy
Places and unrestricted religious
freedom for all religious com
munities in the Jewish state.
The Israel Premier emphasized
that no new law was necessary ;
to proclaim Jerusalem the capital
of the Jewish state. This procla
mation, he said, was made by
King Solomon 3,000 years ago.
Only if Israel would change its
capital would such a law be nec
essary. he pointed out.

power in the world which can
move us out of Jerusalem, be
cause the United Nations has no
such power. However, we are
not satisfied with this situation.
We want the United Nations to
approve Jerusalem as Israel’s
capital. We do not want any
quarrel with the United Nations.
We want a peaceful and honor
able settlement of the issue.”
Reviewing the attitude of the
Israel Government with regard
to peace with the Arab countries,
Mr. Sharett said: “Our stand with
regard to peace with our neigh
bors is clear. We want peace and
are ready for direct negotiations
with any of these countries with
out exception.” He emphasized
that Palestine’s borders were not
always the same in various per
iods of history.

TEL AVIV, (JTA) A thous- j
and tents for six persons each and
400 for 60 persons each arrived
from the United States this week

was something that came natur
ally in the human race.
Oh, that was a golden time of
human kind, though Segal and
his contemporaries didn't realize
it then. Being decent toward the
neighbors was something that
was accepted in the course of
civilized behavior.
The O’Briens lived upstairs and
were good neighbors; next door
resided the Kramers, who came
from Germany in the early 90’s.
Mrs. Kramer occasionally bor
rowed a cup of sugar.
In our town Jews were well
accepted people, prominent in
many affairs of the city, honor
ed for their business probity. The
Catholic Good Samaritan Hos
pital was proud to have as its
head surgeon the great and good
Jew, Dr. Joseph Ransohoff.
There was no need for agen
cies to fight anti-Semitism. The
young men who far later were
to have anti-defamation jobs
weren’t yet born. Jewish charity
wasn’t a multi-million dollar pro
ject. Only in the czar’s Russia
were Jews being oppressed and
they were managing to get away
from their oppressors by the hun
dreds of thousands and settling in
the U. S? and making good.
Jewish charity was nickels and
dimes that, in moments of one's
feeling flush, were inserted in tin
boxes nailed to the kitchen wall.
Once a year some long-bearded
men came along to collect the
contents. No drives at all.
We were nearly all poor then —
poor, that is, in the sense that we
were on humble wages. The
mothers thanked God there was
always enough to eat for the
children. On Friday afternoons
the rooms were fragrant with
the loaves of home-made Sabbath
bread.
God was an inhabitant of every
household. He had been brought
along from the European coun
tries; He had walked with them
up from the railroad station to
the tenement houses in which
they settled.
The first thing they did, after
they had made house for them
selves, was to make a formal
house of worship for Him. They
rented some store room or a hall
upstairs. To be in the synagogue
they laid aside their peddler’s
packs and kept away from the
sweatshop on the Sabbath.
They were poor but for the
sake of God they could afford to
do without the day's profit. It
would have hurt much more to
lose God than it was to miss the
day's profit.
Oh, it turned out all right for
them in the end. Now the thous
ands of their children abide in
plushy dwellings and a lot of
them are in Cadillacs and minks.
Their country clubs are elegant
play spots. They build million
dollar synagogues which they
don’t often attend.
(All of this suggests that may
be the current anti-Semitism
doesn't hurt the Semite as much
as it does the anti-Semite whose
heart harbors the maggots.)
As the second half of the 20th
century starts, the ghosts of the
immigrant forefathers may look
with pride on the well-being of
their children. But old Mendel
or old Eliezer may ask: "Are they
really richer than we were? Our
houses were so rich with God and
the Torah, though we lived on the
third floor.”

NAZI LOOT SHOWN IN NEW YORK CITY
(Continued from Page One)
Experts were amazed by the
beauty and infinite variety of
many” of the objects, and before
disposing of many inscribed items
at public sate, U. N. Galleries an
nounced it first desired to permit
surviving members of families,
which originally owned the ob
jects, to claim them upon satis
factory proof as a gift and with
out any charge.
The objects include candle
sticks. platters, religious wine
cups, candelabras, trophy cups,
bowls, beskets. decorative art ob
jects, wine and cordial sets, tea
and coffee sets, pitchers, vases,
urns, inscribed snuff and pill box
collections, handled and footed
trays and other items.
Ironically, many objects still
possess the original pasted re
ceipts given by Nazi looters to
victims before trundling the lat
ter off to camps and sending the
loot to such overlords as Goer
ing, Goebbels, Himmler and
others. With the approach of Al
lied troops, the Nazis sent their
loot to the mines for safekeeping.
One engraved snuff box in
scribed with pictures of the story
of the Exodus from Egypt—bears
a name "Moshe Polichek". An
other is inscribed to "Fischel the
Writer." A third apparently was
given to a "Dr. Albonyi Yorsef"
as a gift by fellow practitioners
on Oct. 22. 1912.
A wine cup, customarily used
to herald gay holidays and re
ligious feasts, bears the letters
“M. J.” alongside a marking
merely stating, “Ghetto.”
