U.S. Stand on Arab-israel Issue Criticized in Both Houses of Congress

Criticism against the American-policy in the Middle East continued in both Houses of Congress this week-end with the State Department being accused of “floundering” on the Arab-Israel issue.

Sen. William Langer, Republican, said that while Egypt aims to smash Israel with all the Soviet weapons it commands, the State Department is “sitting on our hands.” In the House, Rep. T. James Tumulty. Democrat, urged a change in the Administration’s policy of refusing to sell arms to Israel.
