Middle-East Peace?

March 1956
New Republic;3/26/56, Vol. 134 Issue 13, p5
The article presents information on the United Nations (UN) Security Council meeting to be held on April 1, 1956. The UN Security Council will devote its meeting to the Arab-Israeli war threat. Details are being ironed out with Britain and France. The package will include a proposal that a UN political unit should again undertake to mediate Arab-Israeli differences. Another proposal is a UN embargo on shipment of arms into the Arab-Israeli area. If this proposal is unacceptable to the Security Council, the U.S. will probably announce bilateral granting of defensive arms to Israel, particularly lighter planes and anti-tank guns sufficient to blunt an Arab attack.
