Khrushchev is pursuing the anti jewish policy which Stalin developed in his latter years a policy that reverts to the concept of an utterly monolithic society of the pan slavish of czarist Days. In the bolshevik revolution it was jews Trotzky Kamenev Zinoviev who fought against the tyranny of Stalin and gave their lives for that fight. Similarly the jewish writers in soviet Russia were the ones who have been somewhat critical of the regime. Even if their voices were like a whisper in a Tornado. Who knows which of them remains alive this kind of Independent thinking. Khrushchev does not need and although he boasts of a jewish son in Law or some such relative he has made it Clear that he wants no Independence of thought that lie wants a tight channelled or Paniza Tion in which men do As they Are told and he does All the thinking jews do not lend themselves readily to such a concept of life. If they Are at times out of step it is because they Are compelled by an ancient tradition to speak up. Khrushchev does not need them any More than Nasser needs them or Hitler needed them. Independence is not a desirable Quality among dictators. Oso this rather than religious differences or the Arab refugee problem. Is the basis for the antagonism toward Israel. It will not Readill die Down and yet there Are too Many centuries of jewish life in the Arab world to permit religious difference to to used As an excuse for Arab antagonism toward jews. For instance for centuries there were jewish principalities in Arab countries. Itzhak Ben Zvi.

There is too much of this in the Arab world to assume that difference of religion is the basis of Illtred. The attitude is political.
