BY MARION KUK1NSTKIN .(Written for NEA Sen Ice) , -•,!. .The. sons of Sarah' and tl>e bons j J 'of HiEar live, side by side today jj m* , iii Palestine. And every once in while, (he newspapers of the world let us know Iliat these descendants of the same father Abraha not. live in peace, lhat and kill on« another,' because each is trying to defend its religious rights agninst the oilier. Contrary to popular belief, the conflict Between Jew and Arab . Is not a religious one. While, it is true that events occur periodicnlly which tend to strengthen that belief, careful In- vesiigatipn proves tliat these e'v- enis have been carefully planned to. glvej just lhat effect, to spread the idea to a world interested In the Holy Land thot the. Arabs, angered because their • Masque of Omar or some other lioly spot has Veen threatened , turned to bloodshed in defense. Basically .the reason behind the conflict between Jew and Arab . in Palestine Is economic. To' find exactly how true this Is, . one has to return to the time before 'the Jens came back into Palestine to rebuild that country.
