Sharett Hopes His Mission to Paris and Geneva Has Not Been in Vain

Download PDF for this date

The rapidly developing crisis in the Middle East following the Czech-Egyptian arms deal demands permanent alertness and preparedness. Premier Moshe Sharett declared here last night upon alighting from the plane which brought him from Geneva. The Premier was greeted by fellow members of the Cabinet, an infantry guard of honor and a military band.

He voiced the hope that his mission had not been in vain and said he had been greatly encouraged by the keen interest shown by newsmen of the entire world press in Israel’s problem, and by the fact that the Israel problem had become a focus of world public opinion. He stressed world Jewry’s support of Israel, something he had witnessed while abroad, and urged Israel to be united and conduct itself courageously and “we will find that we are not alone in the world.”
