The Long Island Committee for Peace and Justice in the Near East, a group composed of Protestant clergymen from all parts of the island, today sent a statement containing recommendations and suggestions to President Eisenhower and Secretary of State Dulles; in which they charged that the “Arab states have perpetuated the state of war with Israel, agreeing neither to meet with her representatives nor to cooperate in the solution of the problems.” The statement, signed by 62 ministers, also urged the halting of arms shipments to the Arab states and the adoption of a number of Israeli proposals to bring peace to the Middle East.
