Published by Territory Times Publishing Co., Malakoff Texas. ad lib An example of how tem- pests get in teapots was :Jemonstrated last month when an appeal was issued for an international Day of Prayer to free the Jews in Syria. The Day was sche- duled for March 14 and allei ed to be a joint effort by the fews and Catholics all over the world. Chances are you never knew there was any need to pray for the Jews in Syria In fact if you happened to see Mike Wallace on "60 Minutes" last year: you saw filmed evidence to the con- trary, As a result of his interviews, Wallace com- mented with obvious sur- prise, that the Syrian Jews were treated as fairly as Syrian Arabs and were not discriminated against be- cause of their ethnic origins and the Arab conflict with Israel. "60 Minutes" recalled a trip I made to Damascus in -- not as a political rver, but as a house-fe on a shopping spree. Damas- cus is one of the world's greatest bargain spots and a shopping excursion through .e city's ancient souks is an experience every female bar- gain hunter should exper- ience once in her lifetime. My quest was for hand carved wooden doors, an item for which Damascus is noted, and I was fortunate to have an Arab merchant, George Obeid, helping me. George was a young, blue eyed. blond Arab. possibly of Circassian or Crusader descent. He was also an historian and very know- ledgeable about Damascus and the people who live there. After a morning of wan- dering through the back alleys of the old city and admiring hundreds of carved doors in the stone walls that hide fabulous homes of wealthy Syrians from the public's curious eyes, we came m one of the main streets in the covered bazaar. "This is the Street Called Straight," said George. "You mean the Street Called Straight from the New Testament7" I asked. "Well. that street is buried many feet below this one. but it's the same treet." he replied. Along the Street Called Straight are hundreds of small shops selling every- thing from almonds and pistacchio nuts, antique brass and copper, Damascus silks and brocades, hand made wooden cookie and bread molds, to camel halters. We stopped at one of the shops where ! bought some wooden molds while George talked to the merchant. He was a charming gentleman and invited us to have a cup of Ar coffee and a pastry. It waa pleasant half hour and I enjoyed it very much. I said so to George as we contimed down the street. What nationality was the merchant, I asked. Ar- me;>:aL perhaps.., his name didn't sound Arab. "He's a Yehudi" replied "Yg'di!" I was aston- ished.  Jewish merchant in Damascus? How could that be? the on i.i win.

Under brutal rule of Israeli occupation, the Arabs of Palestine held a general strike March 30, 1976, which they called "The Day oftbe Land." It is a public expression of their wrath at, and rejection of, a wave of barbaric measures launched by the Zionist occupying authorities in the ugliest demonstration of hate and violence that the unarmed Arab population has yet faced. They are confronting the Israeli authorities by their children's demonstrations. Many of these young demonstrators are being killed and wounded. The Israeli police break into Arab girls schools and arrest and beat them in their classrooms. Why are these demonstrations held? Israel is committing serious violations of the Geneva Conventions relating to the Human Rights of people under occupation, and other relevant United Nations Resolutions relating to the Holy City of Jerusalem, the holy places and the Arab-owned lands. Israel is a signatory to those Conventions Israeli courts ruled the allowance of Jews to pray in AI-Aqsa Mosque, second in importance among Islamic shrines, as well as partitioning of the Ibrahimi Mosque, another shrine in Hebron. They desecrate other Islamic and Christian heritages, disfigure landmarks of Arab culture and civilization, confiscate vast Arab lands to build new settlements, and nullify Arabs' titles to their lands. Furthermore, Israel continues to practice, against the Arabs of Palestine, the acts of violence, torture and suppression of Arab patriots, arrest, detention and deportation without formal charges or trial. About 1500 Arab intellectuals and patriots were so deported and separated from their families and communities. We appeal to our American friends to speak out for the rights of, and justice to, the Arabs of Palestine. Without such justice and recognition of such rights, no lasting peace can ever be achieved in the Middle East.
