Eshkol Asks Germans to Halt Scientists Working on Weapons for Egypt

Israeli Premier Levi Eshkol expressed the hope yesterday that West Germany would put a stop to the activities of ex-Nazi scientists working on non-conventional weapons for the United Arab Republic. Appearing over a West German television network, in an interview broadcast throughout the Federal Republic, Mr.Eshkol expressed satisfaction over a resolution submitted recently to the West German parliament, calling for legislative action to get the scientists out of Egypt.

“We expect the resolution to be followed by action as fast as possible, and we are sure that our expectations are shared by others too,” the Premier said. He declared that anyone who helps Israel’s enemies prepare her destruction is “an accessory to crime,” concluding: “When this is being done by sons of the German people, on whom rests the responsibility for the murder of 6, 000, 000 Jews, the crime is infinitely bigger, and weighs-infinitely more.”
