Download PDF for this date

Deputy Prime Minister Yigal Allon told leaders of American Jewry here today that despite the tension along the Suez Canal, Israel was not faced with an immediate choice between imminent peace or inevitable war. He told the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations that it was quite possible that Israel would continue to live under conditions of neither peace nor war until the possibilities opened up for a fair and lasting peace between Israel and her Arab neighbors.

Earlier, Mr. Allon, who heads Israel’s newly established Ministry of Absorption, met with Arye L. Pincus, chairman of the Jewish Agency, at Jewish Agency headquarters here, to review the possibilities of immigration into Israel from the United States. He said that expanding economic activities in Israel opened greater employment possibilities there. He stressed the need for encouraging immigration from this country.
