JERUSALEM, Dec. 23.-Two pre-Christmas thoughts expressed today in the Holy Land of Christians, Moslems and Jews-

By “Ad Difaa” (“Defense”), Moslem-published Arab newspaper- “Repartition threatens the present of the world, its future, even its life, with the worst consequences. The Arabs have already made up their minds (to defy it) and rely on God.”

By David Remez, chairman of the Jewish National Council- “We hope the Arabs will realize some day that the Jews offered peace…. We have to accept now that we are in a war, and we will fight it. With God’s help we will win.”
