Memmi Urges Arab, Jewish Intellectuals to Get Together to Work for Peace

A call to Arab and Jewish intellectuals to get together to work out a peaceful solution of the Middle East problem was published this week by the Tunisian-born Jewish writer Albert Memmi in the weekly Jeune Afrique, a magazine that reflects North African opinion. Mr. Memmi proposed the creation of a Jewish-Arab committee because “peace between the Arabs and Israel is necessary and possible.”
