Israel’s sth Anniversary
; *snP f
The five ’years which have moved past so swiftly have
brought great chances to the people of Israel, to their home
and to their very land. Since 1948, hundreds of thousands of
new settlers have been absorbed into the country’s economy,
not without pain, suffering, and physical hardships, but still
in an orderly and humanitarian fashion which has done
honor to the finest Jewish traditions.
Israel is a cross-section of the Jewish people, its citizens
having come together from almost every country in the world
which has a Jewish community. Ancient Jewish tradition, the
memory of common experiences in the Diaspora, and a com
mon aspiration for Jewish emancipation—these are the uni
fying factors which have produced, in a remarkably short
time, an advanced degree of national unity and self-discipline
strong enough to carry the State through the difficult trials of
emergence to independence and defense against aggression.
However, the varied origin of the citizens of Israel is
still apparent in every aspect of life: the multiplicity of lan
guages spoken and read by the new immigrants, variety of
dress, wide divergencies in styles of living, habits, attitudes to
religious practice and the idioms of cultural expression. Many
years will pass before a synthesis of all these divergencies
emerges in a common form of cultural and social expression.
It is our profound hope that a new era of peace between
Israel and its neighboring Arab states—and progress for the
entire area—will begin during the coming months, and that
our own Government will strive for the attainment of these

Last Sunday night many Jewish
communities throughout the world
celebrated the fifth anniversary of
the Stale of Israel. Americans, ac
customed to thinking of themselves
as a young nation as compared with
the old countries of Europe, find it
hard to realize that the infant land
of Israel, born in strife and forced
to withstand the onslaughts of half
a dozen invading armies, has already
weathered five action-packed years
and is now accepted almost univer
sally as a full-fledged member of the
family of nations.

ments from many of your readers

Dear Major: I
I am fresh back from KorSa and
Japan. I have many interesting
experiences and observations to
relate and wonder if you would
commission me to write my report
from Pusan and Yokosuka as you
did Herb Sohn’s excellent reports
from Israel after he left Jackson
I am in good health again
though still recuperating at the
U. S. Naval Hospital here.
There’s a special story I would
like to write about real heroism
about an Atlanta boy, Lt. Asher,
USMC. His exploits were sensa
Please let me hear from you.
With best wishes and kindest
personal regards, I am,
(Editor’s Note: Jay Cohen will
be remembered as the author of
several excellent poems published
in this newspaper, which’ he
served in our advertising depart
ment prior to being called into
military service. We are looking
forward to his articles.)
U. N. Sidelights
Mrs. Golda Myersun, Israel’s
Labor Minister, came, spoke and
conquered at the United Nation’s
debate on the Communist anti-
Jewish policy . . . Her appearance
had a dramatic effect . . . Some
delegations, after listening to Mrs.
Myerson’s presentations, thought
it a very good idea to have women
as Cabinet members . . . Inciden
tally, some were under the mis
taken impression that Mrs. Myer
son came to the United Nations
session as permanent head of the
Israeli delegation . . . This was
not the case . . . The permanent
head is Ambassador Abba Eban ..
Mrs. Myerson’s mission was limit
ed to the present session of the
U. N. Assembly, primarily to the
debate on the new Soviet anti-

Horowitz, until recently Director General of Israel’s
Finance Ministry . . . The author, who actively participated in
the United Nations session at Lake Success at which the parti
tion decision was voted five years ago, partly lifts the curtain
on behind-the-scenes activities at that historic session ... He
reveals fascinating facts which have not been made known
till now . . . One of the most interesting revelations is of how
Israel won the Negev at Lake Success . . . The American
delegation, influenced by the British, had decided against the
inclusion of the Negev in the Jewish State ... And the head of
the U. S. delegation, Herschel Johnson, was in the midst of
breaking the sad news to Moshe Sharett in the delegates’
lobby some 30 minutes before announcing it to the U. N. ses
sion . . . While Johnson was speaking to Sharett, one of his
aides told him he was wanted on the telephone . . . Johnson
refused to break off his conversation with Sharett at this
delicate moment . . . But, he quickly changed his mind when
his aide wispered to his ear: “The President, sir.” . . . After
spending 20 minutes in the telephone booth, Johnson emerged
and indicated to Sharett that the U. S. delegation would vote
to support Israel’s claim to the Negev ... Israel’s struggle for
its frontiers at the United Nations thus ended in victory due
to a timely telephone call from Truman who had promised
Dr. Weizmann that the Negev would be part of the Jewish
state . . . There were other critical moments for Israel at the
United Nations during which Truman personally stepped in—
against the will of the State Department—and saved the situa
tion . . . Mr. Horowitz also has much to reveal about the
stand of the Soviet delegation on the issue of voting for the
establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine . . . And he
tells very interesting, hitherto unknown details, of how it
came about that Moscow surprised the world by voting in
favor of the historic partition resolution which brought about
the creation of Israel...
