Johnson, Goldwater Messages to Z.O.A. Convention Please Israel

The messages sent to the Zionist Organization of American convention, last weekend, by both President Johnson and Sen. Barry Goldwater were welcomed in political quarters here today as indications of bipartisan United States support for Israel.

The messages from the Democratic and Republican nominees for the American Presidency were seen here as particularly significant, coming as they did after the recent Arab summit conference at Alexandria, where all 13 members of the Arab League had joined in a declaration calling for plans for a new war against Israel.
