  • Description

    WHILE TROOPS MASS ON HER BORDERS, ISRAEL IS A COUNTRY OF CONTRASTS. IN THE STREETS OF THE OLD TOWN OF JAFFA, BOYS BUSILY DIG TRENCHES AGAINST ATTACK, WHILE ON THE SANDY BEACHES OF TEL AVIV, WASHED BY THE MEDITERRANEAN, SUNBATHERS AND SWIMMERS TAKE THEIR EASE.

    LATEST MOVE IN THE WEEK-LONG CONFRONTATION BETWEEN ISRAEL AND HER ARAB NEIGHBOURS CAME YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) WHEN PRESIDENT NASSER PUT FORWARD A FOUR-POINT PLAN FOR PEACE.

    HE ASKED FOR:
    INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION OF THE STRAIT OF TIRAN AS WITHIN EGYPTIAN TERRITORIAL WATERS;
    FULL ACCEPTANCE BY ISRAEL OF THE 1949 ARMISTICE AGREEMENT;
    UNITED NATIONS TROOPS TO POLICE ALL BORDERS BETWEEN ISRAEL AND THE ARAB STATES;
    A BAN ON ISRAELI FORCES BEING ALLOWED INTO THE DEMILITARISED ZONE.

    MEANTIME THE TWO ARMIES FACE EACH OTHER. EGYPT, WITH THE LARGEST ARMY IN THE MIDDLE EAST, CAN MUSTER 300,000 TROOPS AND SOME 1,000 TANKS.

    ISRAEL CAN CALL ON 275,000 TROOPS AND 800 TANKS.
