Continuance of U.S. Aid Depends on Israel’s Actions, Officials Say

Download PDF for this date

United States officials said today that economic aid to Israel is contingent on the state’s good conduct and that this principle also applies to the Arab states.

Officials said Israel should have been sufficiently warned by the temporary suspension of funds. They reported that Secretary of State John Foster Dulles is ready to withhold American aid to Israel or the Arabs the minute either acts to displease the State Department. Israel, it was said, will get between $52,000,000 and $56,000,000 during this fiscal year. Last year’s total was approximately $70,000,000.
