Egypt's Dictator Acting Like Hitler
(Continued from Page 3)
by Nasser —despite the fact that under the age-old treaty all
nations, including Israel, have the right of freedom of trade
in the Suez —is just another of Nasser’s egomaniac tendencies.
To his own people Nasser is trying to make it appear as
if by his big grab of the Suez Canal he is doing something
heroic and patriotic. But when the final chapter is written
the story is certain to be a different one. It is inconceivable
that Britain, France and other countries affected by the at
tempted steal will permit Nasser to gel away with it. Even
without the use of force they can apply economic and political
pressure that will force him to disgorge.
Nasser’s coup has all the earmarks of desperation. He is
but one of several dictators who have been strutting across
the world’s stage. His ambition and his ethics are reminis
cent of Hitler, Mussolini, Peron and other swashbuckling
rulers who bit off more than they could chew. Invariably
the people in whose behalf these egomaniacs profess to act
are the chief sufferers.
The masses in overpopulated Egypt are impoverished.
Their lot could be improved, but the Nasser regime is using a
large part of the country's resources in playing the game of
dictator. Peace in the Near East with the friendship of na
tions that would be willing to aid in alleviating Egypt's needs,
is the one great boon Nasser seems unwilling to permit. He
is committing his country to an adventure beyond its power.
It is the gamble of a desperate man, and a gamble he is going
to lose. For Nasser—it is the beginning of the end.

Jewish citizen has his Jewish identity stamped on his docu
ments . . . Under the Czar this was done on the pretext of
religion but in the USSR, where religion is not taken into
consideration, such a practice amounts to pure and simple
discrimination . . . Such discrimination opens up possibilities
for any kind of anti-Jewish action against Soviet Jewry as a
whole ... Jewish organizations in the United States, by over
looking this aspect of anti-Jewish discrimination in the USSR
and by concentrating merely on the suppression of Yiddish
culture—display profound ignorance of what they should
reallv complain about . . . How would they act if authorities
in the United States, or in any other country, were suddenly
ordered to stamp the word “Jew” on every identity document
held by a Jewish citizen?

the many scheduled activities
were back in full swing.
This week was highlighted by
several tripouts for the senior
campers. Some of the senior boys
left camp Tuesday morning for
four days, returning to camp Fri
day at noon. One of the tired but
happy group was remarked to
say, "It was really a tremendous
trip, but Belle Aire is always a
wonderful site to see again.”
The senior boys were not the
only ones who took tripouts. Sev
eral of the senior girls' cabins
went on all day trips to Oak
Ridge, Tennessee, where they vis
ited the famous atomic city and
were guided through the plant
where atomic bombs were made.

QUESTION: Why is it that
pius Jews consider it necessary to
cut their finger nails in prepara
tion for the Sabbath? (A. B„ Fox-"'
bury. Mass.) y»
ANSWER: Since the Sabbath
is the holiest and most important
day of the week, it is logical that
a man can be cleanest for the
Sabbath. The Zohar (Exodus 208
b) gives us a mystical meaning
for this custom. When Adam
was originally created he was ar
rayed witn precious garments
that covered him in a protective
fashion. After he had sinned,
these garments were taken from
him. All that remained as a sym
bol of these garments were the
finger nails that remained on his
hands and on his feet, indicating,
perhaps that the garments were
some sort of material comparable
to the finger nails. These finger
nails have an outer edge of im
punity. Cutting them indicates a
symbolic removal of the impurity
that remained from that time on.
Since it was on the eve of the
Sabbath that Adam sinned, it is
perhaps most appropriate that the
finger nails be cut on Friday to
remind us of this and to purify us
in preparation for the Sabbath.
* * * *
QUESTION: Why do pius Jews
refrain from throwing away the
finger nails carelessly?
ANSWER: It is stated in Rab
binic literature that the most
pious bum their finger nails.
Some bury them. The Zohar
writes that one must not cast
away the finger nails in a place
where people pass, lest harm
come to them. Some texts claim
that finger nails cast away in the
street are especially injurious to
pregnant women.
Most people cast the cuttings
down the drain and flush them,
which is comparable to burning.
It is also understandable from a
practical standpoint that finger
nail cuttings have sharp edges
and cause cuts. Also, dirt collects
underneath the finger nails and it
is preferable that cuttings be dis
carded in such away as to pre
vent other humans from coming
in contact with their impurity.

Israeli •workmen'open a bale of domestic tobacco in one of the factories of the
Bejarano Brothers Company, a leading cigarette manufacturer, which receives
the assistance of funds derived from State of Israel Bonds. Here the tobacco
undergoes the 6rst stages of treatment prior to blending for cigarette pro
duction. Since 1951, Israel Bond investment capital has been utilized to expand
Israel's tobacco industry. With Israel self-sufficient in Oriental varieties of
tobacco grown in the Galilee, other sectors of the country are being irrigate
for the cultivation of the ‘‘Virginia" type of tobacco. In 1955, the area under
tobacco in Israel amounted to 12,000 acres, yielding a crop of 2,500 tom with
a value of 11,500,000. Israel expects to double this output by the end of 1958,
with continued Israel Development Bond aid.
