Letter Shows Egypt Jewry's Anguish
Copyright 19S7
While the plight of Hungary's
refugees is famijiar to the entire
Western world, and while many
of the West's free nations are
opening their doors to these vic-
tims of Soviet oppression, there
seems to be only small concern
today for Egypt's approximately
60.000 Jews who are under-
going systematic liquidation pro-
cesses in the best Nazi tradition of
President Nasser's mentors and
who, except for a freak in the
antiquated legal processes of
"modernized Egypt," might have
no way out to freedom.
Only token official objection to
this treatment comes from the
same Western powers that have
spoken out so forthrightly at the
United Nations in behalf of Hun-
gary's oppressed.
For one thing, Arab propa-
ganda has it that the persecu-
tion by Egypt of her Jewish
residents Js a fake tale fabri-
cated by the Israel Govern-
ment. For another. Western
courtship of Arab favor today
reinforces the view, principal-
ly he Washington, that any sym-
pathetic reference to Jews will
be interpreted in Cairo as
official U.S. support of Israel.
Thus, Arab propaganda has
brought Washington to heel
mainly to a practical application
of the by now traditional Arab
equation between all Jews and
The Jewish Floridian today has
in its files a letter written to a
former Egyptian, now an Ameri-
can citizen, by an Egyptian friend.
The letter reveals that all efforts
in Washington to discredit the
extent of Egyptian atrocity against
its Jewish citizens are without
basis that the Egyptian Gov-
ernment is, in fact, engaged in a
vast campaign to rid itself of
Jews by expropriation of their

The substance of workshops to be held at
the AJCommitte? chapter's meeting reveals the
major interests of the group:
"Social Discrimination How Does it Af-
fect You?" "Integration What is Your Role
in its Achievement?" "Middle East Crisis
What is the American Jew's Responsibility?"
"Church and State Should We Teach Reli-
gion in Our Public Schools?"
These subjects effectively demonstrate the
scope of American Jewish Committee programs
that vitally affect each of us today.
Perhaps no more than at the present time
do foreign affairs relate to American Jews.
For once again, American Jewish interest in
Israel is reaching unprecedented heights. Only
on the occasion of Israel's establishment did
this interest rise to similar levels.
The difference is that a punitive attitude
exists in official Washinqton toward Israel to-
day. Back in 1948, it was Washington's decision
to support the creation of a Jewish State in
Palestine that principally contributed to the tri-
umph of the United Nations partition plan.
For American Jews, therefore, American
Jewish Committee programs pertaining to the '"" i*-7 u'e
Near East are of significance. In this regard ,he horizon for four years
the problems of integration and religious in-
struction in the public school system are of
equal importance on the homefront. Apart from
fundamental aspects of human rights, the re-
lationship between anti-Semitism and pro-
segregation forces has been shown time and
time again while the effort to introduce Bible
study into the school system strikes at the very
root of the separation of church and state
prmaple a principle whose preservation
must concern every minority group.
The American Jewish Committee is to be
congratulated nationally for its achievements
in civic defense, as well as in the struaale
agams. Communism and anti-Semitism durina

tr.bu.ion on a local level, workina individually
and in conjunction with other civic defense
organizations, is similarly laudable.

No Gas Chambers Yet
The recent Israeli campaign in
Sinai disclosed that captured
Egyptian soldiers carried trans-
lations of Hitler's 'Mein Kampf"
in their knapsacks. This is Nas-
ser's primer on the treatment of
the Jews. Perhaps the only
thing that can be said thusfar is
that Nasser has not yet launched
into the construction of gas
chamber projects and cremator-

passed a "modernization" law in
1948. one year before he was
killed by revolutionaries. Accord-
ing to ancient Egyptian law. a
person could not be a citizen of
Egypt if his family, during some
past generation, came from an-
other country.
How far back this was traced

jokes of political and diplomatic
Nokrashi Pasha's law made it
possible for an individual at age
21 to choose Egyptian citizen-
ship if he so desired or to re-
tain the citizenship of his fam-
ily. According to The Jewish
Floridian informant, it is this
antiquated system that may be
responsible for the many Jews
thusfar, who have left Egypt
stripped of their property
but alive. Mainly with Italian,
British and French passports,
Jewish nationals of these
countries freqently genera-
tions-long residents of Egypt
were afforded a partial im-
munity from the excesses of
Nasser's secret police.
For since 1348. few Jews have
elected Egyptian citizenship
chiefly by virtue of adherence to
family custom, unwillingness on
the part of "older people to go
through the redtape of official-
dom and an increasing reign of
terror against the J- following
the establishment of Israel, which
tended to bar them from the priv-
ilege in any case.
