Author: Ennes, James Jr.

Thirty-four American servicemen were killed and 171 wounded – but it remains a miracle that there is even one survivor left to tell what happened that day.

Issue: 1984, Volume 17, Issue 4
Subject: Politics
Author: Schmida, Leslie C.
Issue Description: In October 1953, [then President] Eisenhower’s Science Advisory Committee responded to Israeli Prime Minister David Ben Gurion’s call for the settlement in Israel of an additional two million European Jews by warning that “this unrealistic approach can only lead to further economic and financial difficulties, and will probably result in additional pressure to expand Israel’s frontiers into the rich lands of the Tigris and Euphrates Valley, and northward into the settled lands of Syria.” Writes author Leslie Schmida in this 1984 issue: “Israel’s appropriation, time after time, of Arab property and water resources in abrogation of all commonly accepted international standards seems well on the way to realizing this dismal prospect.”
