Ambassador Sees Israel Living Under Shadow of Big Power Conflict

Israel may have to live for many years in the shadow of the conflict between Russia and the United States, Israeli Ambassador Abba Eban said here last night. Mr. Eban addressed an Israel bond rally attended by 900 persons who purchased a total of $225,000 worth of bonds.

The Israeli Ambassador declared that the Middle East had now become the arena of conflict between Communism and democracy. As to the Turkish-Syrian dispute, Mr. Eban expressed belief that it would not erupt into violence.

(In New York, it was announced that two Chanukah festivals will be held at Madison Square Garden, one on December 16 and the second a week later, to celebrate Israel’s tenth anniversary. Admission will be by purchase of Israel bonds.)
