Israeli Soldiers Protecting Christian Holy Places, U.p.a. Head Reports

Israeli soldiers in Jerusalem are protecting Christian Holy Places “marked off by Hebrew signs, Dr. Israel Goldstein, United Palestine appeal national chairman attending the Zionist Actions Committee sessions and currently making an on-the -scene survey of needs in Israel, declared in a cabled report received here this week-end.

Of Jewish life in Jerusalem, the U.P.A. chairman said it was slowly returning to normal although supplies were still “very short and prices very high.” Visits by delegates from abroad to the meeting of the Actions Committee, he declared, “have had tremendous effect in lifting the long isolated Jerusalemites’ morale.” Old City evacuees, however, still “show signs of ordeal,” Dr. Goldstein reported.
