TRANSCRIPT: SPEECH: "It is not ??? pot; we have never tried to attempt a melting pot and we have never tried to attempt integration. We have 34 different Christian denominations, some represented here, who are representing churches that have existed here since the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th centuries. Greeks, Armenians, Cops, Abyssinians who want to preserve their own tradition their own nationality and who have ??? to intention ever to integrate They don't want ??? become Jeys, don't want to Arabs don't want to become Moslem or members of mother church...."
SPEECH: "We do intend to meet with a cross section of persons here, both to share (indistinct), There's much that you have to teach us about Israel and Jerusalem and you have Jewish interest. We as Americans have have Americans interests and our interests must converge if our relationship is to expand...
...And yet we understand war. We understand war talk; I am fairly convinced that the agony on both sides is almost too great for either party to break the cycle of pain and perhaps America being a superpower and having interests on both sides can in some way play its best role by reconciling its interest here"
SPEECH: "And so you should know that there is a great grass roots grand concern that's not entire Israel, but that's pro people, which includes Israel and I happen to belong to that group"
KOLLEK: "I am of a different opinion to the Prime Minister and the Foreign Minister who did not receive you and I was of the strong opinion that it you come here - make this effort then we should certainly meet with you and talk to you."
JACKSON: "First of all, one reason I appreciate the mayor's invitation to come here because apparently he accepts a proposition that we have the right to disagree without being disagreeable. We are not able to learn if the Prime Minister does not talk from his perspective. But we've given much to American Jews and to Israel. Never have we resisted the (indistinct) appropriations here, the reparations, the affirmative action. We have never resisted that; by and large we have been willing to give of out tax monies.."
