United Nations Circles See U.S. Proposal As Doom of Peaceful Palestine Solution

The certainty that an international army will have to be sent to Palestine, if peace and order is to be restored, was underscored at United Nations headquarters here this week-end by gloomy delegates who saw in the United States reversal on partition the quenching of all hope for peaceful solution.

Meanwhile, Arthur Louie, director of the Jewish Agency’s New York office, charged that British military supplies had been moved form Egypt to Palestine in the first half of this month for the use of the Arab Legion. In a letter to Karel Lisicky, chairman of the U.N. Palestine Commission, Lourie said “the actions of the British authorities in this regard are incomprehensible in the light of their professed neu?ality in the present situation in Palestine.” He called attention to reports that its of the Arab Legion have entered Palestine “under authority of the Arab league ##d that members of the Legion have frequently figured in attacks on Jews in the past.”
