Senator Lawton Chiles has an-
nounced his strong opposition to
the sale of the AWACS spy
planes to Saudi Arabia.
In communication with Rose
Rifkin. chairperson of the
AWACS Task Force of the Com-
munity Relations Council, Chiles
said, "I opposed the sale of the F-
16 jet fighters to Saudi Arabia in
1978, and voted against it in the
Senate. Then in July of last year,
I co-signed a letter with 67 other
Senators to President Carter
urging him to reject any request
by Saudi Arabia to purchase sup-
plemental equipment for these F-
16 V
In a statement prepared for the
South County Jewish Floridian.
Chiles stated again his unalter-
able opposition to the adminis-

His statement reads as

the sale of 62 F-15 planes to
Saudi Arabia. These planes were
to be equipped with the AIM-7
Sparrow missile and the AIM-
9P3 Sidewinder missile, all
alleged to be defensive weapons.
Should We Push Changes?
The worship of statues is
definitely not a Jewish
trait, as even the most
virulent anti-Semite will
allow. Yet there is one that
we venerate with almost
mystical ardor Our Lady
of the New York Harbor,
the neo-classical colossus
that in the past welcomed
all the world's poor, tired,
huddled masses yearning to
breathe free.

media are full of stories about
spiraling immigration rates and
their adverse economic and social
impact, immigration in the Jew-

referendum. But even before the
Cuban fiasco, there was growing
resentment against massive
immigration at a time of high un-
employment, rampant inflation,
and unreliable energy supplies.
In June, 1977, a Roper poll re-
vealed that 91 percent of the pub-
lic favored strong measures to
stop illegal immigration, and 75
percent wanted reductions in
legal immigration as well. The
poll was repeated in June of 1980,
with the same results except
that the percentage of persons
favoring less legal immigration
had risen to 80 percent. Such un-
animity and consistency is
astonishing, unparalleled in any
area of public policy.

Temple Beth El
Samuel P. Goldstein has been
appointed Administrator of
Temple Beth El, reported Mrs.
Ida (Herman) Herst, President of
the Temple.
Mr. Goldstein, a Miami native,
comes to Beth El after serving as
Executive Director for Temple
Emanu-El on Miami Beach.
Asked what some of his goals
are, Mr. Goldstein responded
that "he intends to work closely
with the Rabbinic and Lay lead
arship of the Temple to help
guide its growth and direction".
He further stated his desire to
meet and involve as many
Temple members as possible.
Mr. Goldstein is married to the

us that Saudi Arabia would not
seek to upgrade these airplanes.
Nor did the U.S intend to sell
them anything in the future to
improve their range or
Nevertheless, I voted against

doubts that they would remain
'Defensive" weapons and my
concern that the security of the
Middle East and our commit-
ments to the State of Israel
would be endangered. Unfortu-
nately, the sale was approved.
Now, the Reagan Administra-
tion plans to propose to Congress
the sale of advanced equipment
to Saudi Arabia for their F-15 jet
fighters as well as sophisticated
AWACS reconnaissance aircraft.
This equipment would dramati-
cally increase the firepower and
range of the fighters, making
them "offensive" weapons.
On the floor of the Senate re-
cently, joining in a colloquy with
Senators Moynihan, Eagleton,
Packwood and others, I reiter-
ated my concern that we are add-
ing to the tensions in the Middle
I will continue to oppose any
move to strengthen the offensive
military capabilities of Saudi
Arabia, of altering the present
balance of power by selling the
AWACS to the Saudis, giving
them the ability to monitor
Israeli defenses. I will give my
full support to a resolution to kill
any such proposal.
Mrs. Rifkin, on behalf of the
Task Force has publicly praised
Senator Chiles for his position
and has said, "Senator Chiles has
been a constant leader on this
issue in Washington. All
Americans Christians, and
Jews who fear that sophisti-
cated American military equip-
ment will fall into the wrong
hands through Saudi Arabia and
who also fear for the safety of
Israel if such equipment were to
be in Saudi hands praise Senator
Chiles' foresight and leadership."
Mrs. Rifkin also announces
that Lois Cohen, Ann Krainin.

Begin and Peres Hustle for Voti
(JTA, In the super-

strange way, part of the

For Begin, his personal rela-

cially important in view of his
recent public denunciations of
Chancellor Helmut Schmidt of
West Germany and former
French President Valery Giscard
d'Estaing and his repeated criti-
cisms of British Prime Minister
. Margaret Thatcher. Begin is un-
derstandably anxious to show
that he is not entirely bereft of
friends at the top strata of inter-
national politics.
Peres, for his part, has made
frequent reference to his own
well-known and long-time friend-

any first trip to Israel is thrilling,
but I cannot help feeling especi-

we did. While a mission may not

right way for us. It was so much

A Near-Tragedy
For the first time outside of the atawLsh commu-
nity, the attempted assassination last week of Pope
John Paul II has raised the possibility that the
attempt was part of an international conspiracy.
As late as this week, Italian police continued to
investigate the "hit man," Mehmet Ali Agca, as the
hired would-be assassin of a worldwide terrorist or-
ganization. Himself, Agca professes profound anti-
American and anti-Israel sentiments.
We have been saying this all along, principally
so far as the Palestine Liberation Organization is
concerned. Across the world, proponents of a knuck-
ling under to the petro-power of Araby have made
light of Jewish fears.
Even the Pope, himself, met recently with PLO
Chief Yasir Arafat, whose subservience to Moscow
and intimacy with Libya's Col. Qaddafi as principal
bank-rollers of his movement, are legion. The Pope's
meeting with Arafat was therefore roundly deplored
by Jewish leaders, a position that apparently left the
Vatican less than bewildered and uncomfortably
critical of Israel's policies.
For example, Vatican Secretary of State Car-
dinal Augostino Casaroli met with Farouk Kad-
doumi, head of the Palestine Liberation Organization
Political Department, in the Vatican last March, a
meeting which the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith at the time branded as giving the PLO un-
warranted recognition and respectability. Now, this
comes home to roost, for Agca, among his other
terrorist affiliations, confesses to a PLO tie.
We join the masses of people around the world
who are grateful that the life of this holy man was
spared. We pray for his complete recovery and his
return to a life dedicated to human betterment. We
are, however, sad that it took this particular near-
tragedy to give substance to often-expressed Jewish
fears. Before that, there was only indifference.
Attitude Must Change,
AJComm. Told in D.C.
The executive head of the
American Jewish Commit-
tee has urged American
Jews "to change some of'
our attitudes, acquire some
new frames of reference,
and develop a new vocab-
ulary" in meeting the "new
economic course" on which
the U.S. is embarked.
Executive Vice President
Bertram H. Gold, in an address
to the agency's 75th anniversary
annual meeting at the Washing-
ton Hilton Hotel, told 1,000
delegate* from across the
"It is dear that this country is
embarked on a new economic
course and that for the present,
at least, most Americans support
the Administration's program. It
ia equally clear that as a group,
we Jews, who have generally
favored the welfare state concept,
and the creation of social
programs on the national level,
are not at all certain how we feel
about it.
"WE ARE going to have to
lawn to work more affectively on
a stale and local level, and to re-
double our efforts to achieve
economic expansion in this
country. Because there can be no
doubt that only with an expand-
ing economy can we ameliorate
the plight of the diaadvantaged
and prevent dangerous inter-
group tensions and rivalries."
But, he cautioned, "we must
never lose our Jewish passion for
compassion" aa American Jews
shift gears to adjust to sassMgsssJ
national conditions and moods.
"Even aa we concentrate on
the economy as a whole, we must
not lose sight of what is happen-
ing to the individual," he stated,
then went on: "Even as we ac-
cept and welcome a smaller

Salt Lake City
Star of David Does Not a Shul Make
Salt Lake City
In the heart of this city is a
large but humble building with
Stars of David in the windows. It
looks so much like an old-time
Brooklyn shul that one would
expect its pews to resonate with
the sounds of the Kaddiah and be
permanently scented with pickled
herring and egg kicheL
But it would be wrong to
assume that the building ia a

PART OF the confusion lies In
the traditional identification on
the Mormons with the "Children
of Israel." Symbols such as the
Star of David and terms such as
"Zion," are emphatically
Mormon in Salt Lake City, so the
real synagogue, Congregation
Kol Ami, is carefully ornamented
with Menorahs, and historical
documents written by Jewish
leaders often refer to the Jews aa
part of the "Gentile" (non-
Mormon) community.
Yet the Jews have had an
authentic imprint as well. For
while the community has never
been large (there are about 2,300
Jews in Salt Lake City and less
than 10 families in nearby Provo)
it has a long and rich history in
the region.
The first Jews passed through
embryonic Salt Lake City on
their way to the gold rush. Some
settled there in 1854. In 1866
Mormon leader Brigham Young
donated land for the Jewish cem-
etery. He was cordially disposed
to the Jews, who had been helpful
to his Mormon pioneers in earlier
steadily, building successively
larger and more eleborate syna-
gogues. Its character is clearly
evident by the fact that an ar-
chitect was brought from Ger-
many to build a synagogue that
was a small-scale replica of the
Berlin Temple.

Behind U.S. Move to Sell

The Reagan Administra-
tion is downplaying the
President's decision to sell
Saudi Arabia the U.S. Air-
borne Warning and Control

at this time that there may
be sufficient resistance
against congressional
approval of the decision as
to embarrass him at a time
when he is enjoying such
overwhelming success with

Now that the President has
been confronted by an almost
solid wall of resistance to his plan
to aave the Social Security
System from bankruptcy by rol-

Even so, they did not give us
any explanation for his refusal to
work, but%again made it clear
that it was only because he
refused to work that he receives
these punishments and that they
will continue to punish him.
After that, I tried to see the
doctor, but he was not there, I
was able to meet the assistant, a
young lady. She told us that she
sees Tolia almost every day. She
confirmed that he had fainting
spells in the past and he was hos-
pitalized. Since that time he has
not asked for their help and the
only problem he has is some
bleeding of the gums. She said
that he is getting some injections
for that. It is clear that it is a
continuation of the same disease
from which he suffered in 1978,
caused by the lack of vitamins,
and it has become chronic. I
asked how much he weighs,
saying that he wrote in his last
letter, "1 think that I do not
weigh less than in Chistopol .
" This information had depressed
us greatly, because when we
visited him in Chistopol we did
not recognize him, he had
changed so much. The assistant
did not give us any concrete
answer as to this weight.
When the authorities told us
that he was alive, we were mo-
mentarily somewhat reassured,
but after analyzing our whole
conversation, we are afraid that
his refusal to work can be ex-
plained only by his poor physical
condition. They did not say this,
but it is evident.
And something else, from the
conversation I had with the
camp authorities, I have the im-
pression that the punishments
are provoked they are
prepared in advance. So we have
a vicious cricle: If he is ill, he
cannot work, and if he cannot
work and they ask him to work,
they have a good reason for pun-
ishing him. They can keep this
cycle up indefinitely.
So I did not succeed in my aim
to see him, to be sure he is alive
and well. But what is absolutely
clear, is that we must fight for his
Because the camp authorities.
That means I will continue this
struggle and demand that they
stop these tortures. But I do not
know how much time this will
take. From experiences in the
past, we know that in each appeal
we wait for weeks and weeks for
an answer and sometimes we do
not even receive one. And 1 do
not know if Anatoly has the
physical strength to live until the
moment 1 received such an
We tried during the hour and a
half to achieve one thing: an
answer as to why Anatoly refuses
to work. And to this question we
did not receive an answer. We
should concentrate our attention
on this because I think this is a
very, very important point.
The journey was very difficult
38 hours by train. It is not
always possible to get through to
this zone. Roads are bad a lot
of mud and sometimes people
can't even get to the camp. The
most difficult part was to get
from the train station to the
camp we had to hitchhike.
And all this we endured only in
the hope of seeing Tolia, even
from afar, and this was denied.
I showed the camp director a
letter from the Moscow camp ad-
ministration office and I told him
that each statement in it was a
lie. He became worried and asked
his aide to bring Anatoly s file.
He agreed that the points, men-
tioned in the letter did not corre-
spond with his records. The Jan-
uary 5 meeting, which the
Moscow office said was canceled
because of Anatoly's refusal to
work, was in fact never sched-
uled, according to his documents.
We went through the whole letter
and none of it agreed with infor-
mation in Tolia s file. I told the
director: "If more than two-
thirds in this official letter is lies,
how can I believe your word that
Anatoly Was punished because he
refused to work? You intention-
ally create circumstances to
destroy my son."
Shcharansky's Wife In Washington;
Fears for His Life
wife of POC Anatoly Shcharan-
sky, came to the capital this week
to bring her husband's desperate
plight to the attention of United
States officials and the general
public. On May 12 she was
received by Secretary of State
Alexander M. Haig, Jr., Senators
Alfonse D'Amato (R-N.Y.) and
Arlen Specter (R-Pa.). The meet-
ing, was also attended by Jerry
Goodman, Executive Director,
NCSJ, and Zeesy Schnur, Execu-
tive Director, Greater New York
Conference on Soviet Jewry, and
resulted in a strong statement of
support for Anatoly Shcharan-
sky. Mr. Haig promised to take
Avital's message to "those levels
appropriate," specifically to
Soviet Ambassador Anatoly
Dobrynin. Senate Resolution 131,
calling for "the release of impris-
oned Soviet Jewish activist
Anatoly Shcharansky," was in-
troduced by Senator D'Amato,
co-sponsored by 71 of his col-
leagues and unanimously passed
by the Senate.
Senator D'Amato also
arranged a meeting for Avital
with State Department officials
and the staff of the Helsinki
Commission, followed by a press
conference. Early next week she
hopes to meet with Vice Presi-
dent George Bush.
Mrs. Shcharansky carried with
her a recorded telephone report
from Anatoly's mother, Ida Mil-
grom, which has convinced her of
her husband's critically deterio-
rated health.

policies H ofU n expressed as
refugee backlash, the problem
besetting America i- far deeper.
Economic development through-
out the* world has been stag-
nating, population in the less
developed nations has continued
to climb, and the gap between
standards of living and rising ex-
lions is widening. Literally
billions of people are trapped in
lives of hopeless poverty, and
escape to the West seems the
onl) way out.
The I'nited States is the pre-
ferred destination of virtually all
migrants, not only because of its
own immigrant traditions, not
only because of its high standard
uf living but. above all else, be-
cause it has the most casual atti-
tude toward the integrity of its
land and sea borders, does not re-
quire a work permit as a con-
dition of employment, and makes
no attempt to screen people in the
country for legal residence
status. The word has spread, far
and wide, that once inside the
I'nited States, the illegal resident
is quite safe from prosecution for
Emigration irregularities.
The situation is attracting ever
larger numbers of unlawful
border crossers. and is en-
couraging students and visitors
to simply stay on beyond the
expiration of their temporary
visas. For the last three years,
over a million illegal entrants
were apprehended by the border
patrol, most of them along the
J.iXKI-mile Mexican border
According to border patrol
sources, at least twice that many
get through undetected.
THE MEXICAN presence in
the illegal resident population
baa been the primary focus of
media attention, so that the im
don is created that illegal
immigration is largely a Mexican
problem Nothing could be
further from the truth. Many
entering through the permeable
southern border are in fact na-
tionals of other Central American
countries, who find the route1
through Mexico and over the
border the easiest access to the
U.S. On the other hand, the un-
guarded border works both ways,
and many Mexican workers
prefer to commute between the
two countries, rather than settle
here permanently.
The public is largely unaware
of the sizeable and. by all indi-
cations, growing settlements of
illegal aliens from China. Hong
Kong, the Philippines, the Carib-
bean nations. Korea, Iran.
Greece. Poland. the Arab
countries and Israel.
Legal and illegal immigration,
combined with large-scale refugee
admissions, are now running at
an all-time high, setting immi-
grant entry records never equaled
in the history of this "nation of
immigrants." They are rapidly
changing the character of Ameri-
can cities across the land. The
city of Detroit, for example, has
become home to a thriving Arab
community, which is already po-
litically active and can be
counted upon to become more in-
fluential as its numbers grow and
.! ri wit -, deepen.

SUPPORT for the status quo
of minimal immigration law
enforcement and of maximum
immigration in all categories has
come from a very narrow sector
of American society. Some in
dustries. such as agriculture and
restaurants, havs welcomed the
ready availability of cheap man
power, willing to work under any
conditions, and they have resist-
ed enactment of legislation pro-
hibiting the employment of
illegal aliens. Ethnic minorities,
such as Hispanics. perceiving
their own best interests in rapid
growth through massive immi-
gration, have opposed all at-
tempts to curtail it.
Civil libertarians on the right
and on the left have battled
agains work permits, or other
measures designed to differ-
entiate between legal and illegal
residents. Though they represent
but a very small fraction of the
American public, they have suc-
ceeded in paralyzing every im-
pulse toward legislative reform.
The Jewish community, like
organized Hispanic and Asian
groups, supports the principle of
open immigration. It is the only
ethnic minority to do so. how-
ever, out of purely altruistic mo-
tives, without any expectations
of benefits for itself. In fact, the
very opposite is to be expected
realistically, the Jewish com-
munity in America stands to lose
greatly from a continuation of the
status quo.
On the surface, this statement
may well seem to be a blatant
contradiction of the facts After
all, it is by upholding the most
liberal immigration standards
that we have succeeded in re-
settling over 75.000 Russian
.lews in the U.S., as well as thou-
sands of lews from other F.astem
European nations and from Iran.
UPON FURTHER reflection,
the picture is quite different. We
rightfully rejoice in the rescue of
our brethren from oppressive
regimes, but by all logic, these
emigres should have resettled in
Eretz Israel. Israel was founded
by. and for. the victims of re-
ligious persecution, and its long-
term chances of survival directly
depend upon more Jewish im-
migration. Every new Jewish
settler strengthens it. and every
Jew diverted from settling there
is a profound loss to Israel, and
i here fore, to Jewry everywhere.
Israel's losses from America's
unfortunate immigration policies
have been compounded by a large
exodus of Israelis to these shores.
It is estimated that more than 10
percent of Israel's Jewish popu-
lation now lives permanently in
the United States nearly
400.000 Israeli citizens, mostly
young and enterprising people
whose absence is sorely-felt in the
Jewish homeland.

other industrial nation in the
world. Much of the increase is
due to immigration, which
presently accounts for about half
of our yearly expansion.
Ecological awareness teaches

tracts a terrible price, ac-
companied as it is by greater con-
sumption, by urban sprawl, by
more pollution and by rapid de-
gradation of the total en-
\ ironment. Every new resident
increases America's energy de-
pendence upon capricious sup-
pliers who are traditionally
hostile to Jewish interests, and at
the same lime diminishes our in-
dependence in foreign policy
FIFTY YEARS ago. the un-
just fate of America's racial
minorities was a matter of total
indifference to most Americans,
including to most Jewish immi-
grants. As they made their way
into the American mainstream,
immigrants gave little thought to
the possibility that they might be
advancing at the expense of oth-
ers those whose land it had
bean before the white man came,
and those who had been sold into
slavery and brought here forcibly
some three hundred years ago.
Jews, themselves the de-
cendanls of Pharaoh's slaves,
were among the first outside the
I Hack community to deeply feel
VLlfif' "T.lTJl I***^"**'
the injustice of this neglect. De-
spile recent tensions in the rela-
tions between Blacks and Jews,
the Jewish role in organi/.aing
and in financing the civil rights
movement remains a point of
enormous pride and satisfaction
(or us all.
The very people whose call for
equality of opportunity we made
our own are now the prime
victims of out-of control immi-
gration. Immigrants have
acquired a reputation as hard and
docile workers; ihey have become
the preferred workforce in many
industries, especially since most
of the non-Europeans enjoy affir-
mative action entitlements, and
t tins can relieve employers from
the need to hire Blacks to meet
obligations in this area.
COMPETITION with our own
disadvantaged is not limited to
ihe market place. Those here
legally, at least, also compete
hard for social services, educa-
tion, training, housing, food
stamps, small business loans,
scholarships, and the whole
panoply of benefits originally in-
stituted to further the advance-
ment of groups with a long his-
tory of willful discrimination in
the United States.
These reasons alone justify a
critical rethinking of the Jewish
|M>sit ion, but there are some more
parochial concerns that should
also give us pause.
We are a small minority in this
nation, probably not more than
2.5 percent of the population. Our
fertility is the lowest of any eth-
nic group, and the steady influx
of Russian and Israeli Jews not-
withstanding, our proportion in a
total population that is growing
dynamically through immi-
gration is still diminishing. Even
if our liberal immigration policies
resulted in the resettlement of all
the Russian Jews in the United
States, or and this is unthink
able even if all the worlds
Jews (estimated to be less than
10 million, according to a recent
study by Robert Becchi of
Hebrew University) were to come
here, we still could not compete
through strength of numbers.
broad enough to permit unim-
peded Jewish immigration will
necessarily promote immigration
of every other minority as well.
Such migration creates new poli-
tical power bases along changed
ethnic alignments, and increases
Ihe influence of the fastest grow-
ing ethnic communities. Many of
the newcomers migrate from
societies antagonistic to Jews
and to Israel, and with assimila-
tion lo traditional American
values no longer an avowed ob-
jective of immigrant groups, the
altitudes learned in the homeland
are likely to survive in the new
home for a very long time.
It is clear that in any situation
in which numbers alone affect the
outcome, the Jewish community
can't possibly win. The basis of
influence and position of
American Jews has long been,
and will continue to be, our
wholehearted and responsible
participation in the political and
intellectual life of this, our
The time has come to re-
examine our endorsement of pol-
icies that are at once detrimental

icle, Dec. 8.1980).
AWACS has a devastating ef-
fectiveness when directing air-
craft such as the F-15 which
Saudi Arabia will receive this
year. According to Gen. John
Vogt, a NATO tactical air com-
mander, tests in 1975 showed
that the AWACS can direct an F-
15 in bad weather so that its long-
range radar can lock-on to
numerous targets at all altitudes
over a wide front. "The AWACS
determines a threat that may be

several hundred miles out, takes

having to change its altitude,
gets a missile off many, many
miles away, and then can peel off
and go to the next target. We've

Compromise of the AWACS'
secrets would be a dangerous
blow to American security.
During 1977 congressional
hearings on the sale of AWACS
to Iran, the director of the
General Accounting Office's Pro-
curement and Systems Acquisi-
tion Division warned, "If the
Soviets should gain access to the
AWACS they could move ahead,
in the opinion of the Director of
Central Intelligence, some five to
seven years in certain technolog-
ies. More immediately, they
could learn how to jam any now
contemplated AWACS version."
IT MUST be recalled that in
1977, State Department, Defense
Department and CIA experts all
gave assurances of Iranian
stability and argued that there
would be a minimal risk in the
transfer of sophisticated military
equipment to the Shah's regime.
Within 30 months, the Shah had
fallen, and training manuals for
systems such as the F-14 and the
Phoenix missile were com-
The Saudi regime is compara-
bly unstable and faces numerous
threats. The takeover of the
Grand Mosque last year provided
ample evidence: that there is
popular resentment against the
concentration of power in the
hands of the Saudi royal family;
that skewed budgetary priorities
and pervasive corruption are
arousing domestic discontent;
that the tribal National Guard
and Saudi army are unreliable
and potential rivals; and that the
primary threat to the Saudi
regime comes from its own feudal
policies and from conspiracies
based in rival Arab states.
The range and detection capa-
bilities of the AWACS, combined
with the 62 F-15 fighter-bombers
Saudi Arabia will soon receive,
will make Saudi Arabia a potent
force along Israel's eastern front.
In past engagements, Saudi
Arabia provided forces to the
Syrian and Jordanian fronts, and
it is probable that equipment
with such advanced systems as
the AWACS, enhanced F-15s and
AIM-9L missiles, Saudi Arabia
will be drawn into any future
Saudi acquisition of AWACS
will preclude Israel's ability to
fight a preemptive war a vital
option for a small country out-
gunned by the combined forces of
its neighbors. Special operations,
such as the 1976 Entebbe rescue,
would be impossible.
AN ARAB surprise attack, in
coordination with Syria, Jordan
and Iraq, will be possible if
AWACS are deployed to cover all
of Israel's airspace.
The awacs far surpasses any
equipment in Israel's arsenal.
The closest system Israel has to
the E-3A AWACS is the E-2C
Hawkeye, a small, twin-
turboprop airborne early warning
system. But that is the
Hawkeye's only role; it has no
battle control capability. The
radar range and the hour-on-
station endurance is roughly half
that of the AWACS. The E-3A
can perform against electronic
counter-measures better and has
a much greater airborne surviv-
ability because of its speed and
greater surveillance. The E-2C's
radar crew consists of only three
operators (compared to the E-
3A's 13) and only three special-
ized consoles (compared to the E-
3A's 9 and soon to be 12
multi-purpose display consoles).
Israel's airforce is one of the
finest in the world and certainly
capable of meeting the challenge
from any one Arab state. But a
combination of forces, protected
and coordinated by AWACS,
would put a severe strain on
Israel's defenders. Saudi

Syria's deployment of

Although Damascus insists

visiting Saudi Arabia, after an
apparently fruitless third round
of talks in Beirut, Damascus and
Jerusalem, was to induce the
Saudis to bring their powerful
influence to bear on President
Hafez Assad of Syria for a peace-
ful solution. Before he left Riyadh
this week, the Saudi government
published a strong statement of
support for the Syrians. At first

Habib had failed again. The
statement condemned Israel's
"expansionist intentions" as re-

observers here that the American

Saudis to some action. A Saudi
minister was reported to be

Israeli observers know that
Saudi Arabia has clout in Dam-
ascus. Until recently, the Saudis
.have been paying some $50 mil-
lion a month to cover the costs of
the Syrian peacekeeping force
sent to Lebanon in 1976 by the
Arab League. That money, since
cut off, could be a powerful in-
entive to Assad and his govern-
ment to accede to Saudi wishes.
If the Saudis indeed want the
present crisis to end without an
outbreak of hostility in the
region, they are expected to exert
their leverage.
ON THE other hand, observers
here said, the missile crisis and
Assad's hardline stance have al-
ready paid handsome dividends
