Peace With the Arabs '
BY DAVID SCHWAiiTZ
(Copyright, 1954, Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, Inc.)
*****
Henry Monlor of the Israel
Bond Organization, returning
from Israel, advises the friends of
Israel not to worry too much
about peace with the Arabs. In
fact, he is of the opinion that
the less talk there is of peace
with the Arabs the sooner it may
come.
It all brought back to mind a
story about peace that goes back
to Palestine some 16 years ago,
when I visited Palestine. The
story was told to me by a Jewish
farmer at Rishon—an old timer,
whose people had come to Pales*
tine among the earliest pioneers.
This Jewish planter had an
Arab working for him. I don't
pretend to remember his name.
We shall call him Ahmed. He got
along quite well. He appeared to
be a little more of a schemer than
most. The Arabs are Semites as
are the Jews and the Jews have
a reputation for great cunning but
anyone who really knows the
Arabs knows that we are the
merest of amateurs in that re
spect compared to the Arabs.
What goes on in the back of an
Arab’s mind you really never
know. What he says and what he
thinks are entirely in different
compartments. You go to an Arab
on a business errand. He refuses
to talk business with you. He in
vites you to have coffee with him.
You finish your demit asse and he
brings you another and another.
It will probably be three hours
later before he lets you talk about
the mundane matter which
brought you. He overwhelms you
with his hospitality, but when he
finally gets down to talking busi
ness, he will drive a hard bargain.
But all of this is byway of

parenthesis—not so much to ex
plain Ahmed personally as hii
race. But Ahmed was a true man
of his race.
As I was saying, Ahmed work
ed for this Jewish farmer quite
pleasantly, but one uay, tit
Bedouin in him asserted itself
ana "ne iolaea his tent,” and
“silently stole away.” )
And on another bright morning,
several months later, who comes
galloping up to the homestead of
the old Jewish farmer in Rishon?
You are right. It was not Paul
Revere. It was Ahmed. Yes, sir,
he was riding on a fine white
horse—the surest sign of prosper
ity. Ahmed seemed to have struck
oil figuratively at least. The fact
that Ahmed had a fine white
horse showed that he was getting
closer to the upper brackets or
maybe they call it the upper
shish-kebab.
The Jewish farmer and Ahmed
got to talking and the farmer
learned that Ahmed was not quite
as prosperous as hq looked. He
had in fact come to borrow 20
pounds of the Jewish farmer, but
it wouldn't be long he assured
the Jewish planter, before he
would repay him.
What (lid he need the money
for?
The chance had come to him
to buy a very young wife. He
was a little tired of his present
wife. The father of the young girl
he was now interested in had
originally demanded 30 pounds
but he had got the father down
to 20 pounds. He positively would
not go any lower. The new wife,
he thought, would go well with
the new horse.
Where did Ahmed get that fine
white horse? asked the Jewish
farmer.
Allah had been good to him.
Ahmed frankly admitted that he
had stolen the horse, but he re
assured the Jewish farmer. It was
perfectly safe. He had stolen it
from the other end of the country
and the owners could not trace it.
To remove any qualms about
the repayment of the 20 pounds
asked, Ahmed pointed out that he
was now in a business which
offered the most lucrative of re
turns.
At that lime, the Huranis were
flocking into Palestine in great
numbers attracted by the Jobs
created by the Jewish enterprises.
(We tend to forget that much of
the Arab population in Palestine
was of as recent an immigration

THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY
Dov Joseph To Appear
. ' :9jHk
Dr. Dot Joseph. Israel’s Minister of
Development, will be among the major
speakers at the National Planning Con
ference for Israel, which will be held
at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington,
D. from Friday, March 26, to Sunday,
March 28, under the auspices of the
State of Israel Bond Organization. At
the Conference, Dr. Joseph and other
prominent American and Israeli person
alities will meet with Jewish communal
leaders of the United States, Canada,
Latin America and Western Europe to
formulate plans for financial assistance
to Israel’s program of economic growth,
and to inaugurate Israel’s second Bond
Issue the Development Issue. The
new Bond Issue, which will be floated
soon after April 1, will seek to raise
$75,000,000 during 1954, and is 1 part of
a larger issue of $350,000,000 to be sold
during the next few years.
as the Jewish, coming to Pales
tine because of the Jews.) .
The Huranis were always fight
ing with another and Ahmed had
discovered that many of the
Huranis were willing to pay him
for adjusting their feuds. He had
a knack in that direction. The
saying “Blessed are the peace
makers” was true. He had found
peacemaking a fine business. H"
just hoped the Huranis would
keep on fighting so he would have
more orders to make peace.
The Levantine is a devious per
son. I think Mr. Montor may be
right. What goes on in the Arab
mind when you talk peace with
him, you can never know. His is
a fantastic world. He buys, a wife
like a horse and when you talk
with him about peace you have
got to watch your horse.
