Among people who know UK Arab-Jewish Filiation closcup, about 55 per cent say yes. When is war likely to break out if it does? This spring. Here on this strategic Mediterranean island the opinion Ls: Neither the Arabs nor the Jews are intent on launching an outright attack. The danger is that one side or the other may reach the point c£ no return because of raids or border flare-ups. Today, the Mid-East' is aflame with controversy, and there is a. real threat that She flames will eat their way to a powder keg— the boundaries that Israel has with her enemies. The Jews are convinced there will be war. Every week sees war equipment moving into Egypt. MIG-15 jet fighters from Czechoslovakia. Russian-m a d e llyushin-2S jet bombers. American-made tanks. Already there are British Centuri- an and Russian Stalin heavy tanks. Israel is outnumbered in mobilized military manpower by at least two to one. Now the balance in weapons is swinging to the Arabs, too. Why should there be war? What factors push the Mid-East toward it? 1. Arabs feel that Israel, while no bigger than New Jersey, has the power and wealth of the world community of Jews behind it and inevitably will expand. 2. Jewish plans to divert the waters of 'the River Jordan for. irrigation. Egypt's Premier Gamal Abdel Nasser has said that will be an act of aggression. 3. Wounds have never healed from the 19-18-19 Jewish-Arab war. 4. Some Jewish factions exhort Israel to wage "preventive war" while she still can win. 5. British influence over Jordan's Arab Legion was removed with firing of Gen. Sir John Bagot Glubb and removal of 50 other top British officers. for 100 17/0 \im per i 00 7 A 95 .engraved as low as OM (more cost much less per 100) matherne's...
