Mrs. Meir Says She is More Worried About Assimilation in West Than Another War

Download PDF for this date

Mrs. Golda Meir told a convention of North American Labor Zionists here yesterday that she was more worried about the threat of assimilation of Jews living in the West than she was about another war by the Arabs against Israel. The retiring secretary-general of the Israel Labor Party remarked in reply to questions about whether another such war might happen, “one can never know when the Arabs will lose their heads and plunge into another war though they are not ready for it” and that she was convinced that if this did happen, “we will win as we won previous wars.”
