Lacking in Jerusalem Number 85 EDITORS NOTE This is one of a series of daily reports by our editor on a trip by air around the world By W EARL HALL is no true J peace so far as this cradle of three major religions of our world are c o nc e r n e d At best its an uneasj cessation of hos tilities between two peoples with no basis as yet discovered for compromise The differ ences between Arab and Jew have their roots in ancient his tory Creation W EARL HALL of the free state of Israel a decade ago merely served as a catalytic agent for this hatred born of the centuries The Suez crisis has been but one Plymouth Mother of 7 Dies After Crash g more irritant needed where none was Manifestations of this undying rancor have been numerous and impressive since my arrival here a scant 24 hours ago Just a few of them From the balcony of our room in the recently completed Am bassador Hotel built with Amer ican dollars incidentally I can look down on a massive wall built to provide a physical separ ation between Arabheld Jerusa lem and Jewishheld Jerusalem Beyond the Wall Beyond that wall is a No Mans Land a block or so in width Beyond that lies the ma jor part of New Jerusalem with a populatior estimated as some where between and 000 or approximately twice that of Araboccupied Jerusalem in cluding all of the old walled city The street between my hotel and Damascus Gate is filled with pill boxes and massive concrete spikes designed to block the path of possible invading tanks Sol diers in khaki uniform and typi cal Arab headdress are every where Some are on sentry duty behind sand bags on top of or alongside the dividing wall Live in Caves Arab refugees from the Israel side of no mans land are very numerous By choice or neces sity probably the latter many of them have taken up residence in caves where the paltry allowance by U N approximately a month helps them to keep body and soul together The blow to tourist business produced by the Suez crisis has shewn up in two ways 1 My colleague and I are al most the only patrons of this hotel built for 200 persons Were told there arc two others but we havent yet seen them 2 The business he and I gave our guide yesterday and today was the first lie has had in 76 days Hes in dire straits By happenstance rather than by design nearly all the shrines dearest to Christian hearts are on the Arab side of the dividing line between Israel and Jordan The ratio is figured at 10 to 1 with Nazareth and the Jerusalem site of the Lords Last Supper the fore most exceptions Arab Viewpoint The Arab point of view has been pounded into me ever since I arrived in the Middle East At the core of it is the premise that the Jews have had no claim upon what is now Israel tree state for 13 centuries and that what hap pened before doesnt count While I know in something more than a general way wha the Israeli point of view is Im not getting exposed to it on thir world trek To let the word Israel show up among the visas in my precious passport would be to surrender all hope of visiting another Arab country So Im maintaining an attitude of objective detachment until have both sides of the story Nobusuke Kishi
