New York Businessman Presents Fleet of Ambulances for Israel

A fleet of three ambulances, destined for service on the Gaza border, was presented to the American Red Mogen David for Israel by Morris G. Kaplun, a retired New York businessman, it was announced today by Congressman Emanuel Celler, chairman of the organization, which acts as a supply wing of Israel’s Red Mogen Dovid.

In accepting the vehicles, Congressman Celler called them a “peace caravan” and urged the opponents of Israel to permit the ambulances free movement to aid Arabs and Jews. “Take away the guns, lift the mines, and let these ambulances serve everyone, Israelis and Egyptians, Jews, Christians and Moslems alike,” Rep. Celler said. “I am positive that is the way the Israelis want it, and I’m equally positive that is the way the mass of Arabs want it.”
