The United States should supply Israel with American jet fighter planes to help the Jewish State defend itself, Mrs. Rose Halprin, acting chairman of the Jewish Agency executive, recommended yesterday upon her return from Israel.

Mrs. Halprin reported that Israel had been heartened by the decision of Canada and France to sell jets. The U. S., she noted, had not interfered with these transactions. It should now go “a step further” and make American jets available directly to Israel, she urged.
