WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 194f BLYTHEVILLE <ABK.) COURIEB KEW1 PAGE MINK Arabs and Jews Rarely at Peace Inability to Writ* Lasting Truce Has Origin in Bible By dirk ReuK WASHINGTON — Stories •bout how Arabs and Jews can't final peace for Palesih • write » after montlis of Iruce an negotiations have an indent ring. Those two nations, next-door neighbors and cousins, members oJ one ol the oldest families on earth, have lived In A kind of armed truce with each other all through tlie ages- except when fighting. they were actually It all began in the time of Abraham, about 4.000 years ago. The lore of both nations relates lha S ahara was the. father ot both bs and Jews. One of Abraham's sons was Jacob, whom the Ange named Israel, and the Jews claim descent from him. He settled down in his father's country, which i roughly the Interior of the present State of Israel. Abraham's eldest son was fsh- mael, and he is reputed to be the ancestor of the Arabians. He lefl his father's lair to raise his family in the desert country east of the Jordan River. Israel's sons settled down in towrs and cities and took pride in scholarship and the building of permanent structures such as the Temple of Jerusalem. Ishmael's sons just wandered, camped by the oases, led .their flocks hither and yon to follow the grass where it was green. Rtjarded is "Yokels" In tlie Old Testament you read repeatedly of bloody contacts between the Israelites and the nomads to the east. It is quite clear that by the time of the prophet Nehemiah (5th Century B.C.) the Isivelites regarded their cousins across the Jordan as barbarous and untutored yokels and robbers. Despite having the same blood and a language with the same- Semitic—root, they have gone their separate ways all through the ages. The same enemies threatened and overwhelmed them. time after time, but they never teamed up for common defense. The only time jkjpi read about an Arab and Jew lighting on the same side is when an Arab army helps out one Jewish faction which is busy beating the Hie'out ot another set of Jews. Assyrians, Babylonians and Per- ifans picked off the Israelites and Arabs, one at a Ume. Greeks and Romans took over all of Israel and aeized control of the caravan routes of the Arabs. In one of Israel's final, desperate battles against Rome." the attack by Titus in 61 A.D., an Arabian leader loaned Titus 1,000 horse- and 5,000 foot soldiers. With the Mohammedan sweep • cross most of the Mediterranean world in the seventh and eighth centuries Arabians became the masters of Palestine and of Jewish colonies in the lands they conquered. Under Islam the Jews didn't lare too badly. Although the Prophet's policy was to slay al persons who did not embrace the faith, he made an exception, of which many Jews took advantage They could retain their own faith • nd still live if they paid a gen- trous poll tax and were "reducer low"—accepting A kind of second- class citizenship. Actually, man; Jews became prominent statesmen Milkers and scholars under the Islamic rule. Side* Alwajt Unequal One reason the «ews and Arab never jo'-ied in * common fron probably was that they were-neve In the asc dancy at the sam time.
