Will Anything Change for Israel Under Reagan and Bush?
senior American Jewish
leader said here that
Israelis were "having pipe
dreams" if they thought
that the Reagan Adminis-
tration was going to base
its Middle East policy
solely on a close security
relationship with Israel.
Rabbi Arthur Hertzberg, vice
president of the World Jewish
Congress, told the Board of
Deputies of British Jews that
although President Reagan had
"tremendous goodwill" for
Israel, and the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization would be a
"non-starter" once he was in
office, it would be wrong to
presume that there would be no
more problems between the
Jewish State and the White
HERTZBERG, who stopped
here en route to the World Jewish
Congress assembly in Jerusalem,
ridiculed Israeli commentators
who had deduced from Reagan's
election statements that Israel
would now be regarded as a "first
class strategic asset" by
America's military thinkers.
Noting that Reagan had been
given a mandate to be tough with
the Russians, Hertzberg said
Reagan was probably the only
American President who could go
to Moscow to make a global
agreement with the Soviet
leadership. "At that moment, I
would worry about Israel,"
Hertzberg added.
In the meantime, Israel's
friends in the United States
would find that it would be
"business as usual" with the
incoming Administration and
that they would have to "fight
out the problems one by one," he
said. Hertzberg also noted that
1 the Reagan transition team was
strongly opposed to setting up a
"Jewish desk" in the White
House like that under the Carter

Sarah Davis, daughter of Linda Davis, licks her lips in antici-
pation of the good food which will come from the recipes in
the Jewish Community Center Cookbook. Danny Rosenthal,
son of Alice and Stanley Rosenthal, just dreams about the good
food Barbara Richman was all smiles on when presented with
the first cookbook dedicated to her for her love and devotion
given to the children in the JCC Pre-School.

Jackie Junas, Co-chairman
of the JCC Pre-School Cook
book Committee.
The Jewish Community Center
Cookbook, newly arrived from
the presses, was dedicated to
Barbara Richman, Director of the
JCC Pre-School. This surprise
honor was managed by the cook-
book committee of Pre-School
mothers. Jane Finkelstein and
Jackie Junas were co-chairman of
this project under Nancy
Verkauf, president of the Pre-
School Parent Teacher Group.
The dedication begins, 'Many
professionals and volunteers
have contributed over the years
to the success of the Jewish
Community Center Pre-School,
but the one outstanding in-
dividual whose influence is felt in
each classroom, each lesson plan,
by each teacher and most of all in
the loving eyes of each child is
Barbara Richman."
Jane Finkelstein, one of the
cookbook chairmen said, "We
wanted to show Barbara our ap-
preciation for all the love she
gives each day to our children."
Cookbook Committee members
in addition to Finkelstein and
Junas are Marie Simon, Carol
Weinstein, Susan Gluckman.
Thelma Karp. Deah Davidson,
Jeanne Sandberg, Gloria
Berkowitz. Nancy Linsky. Jane
Spector, Erin Carp and Joan
Goldstein. The cover design was
by Marie Simon.
Richman has been at the JCC
for the past eight years, first as a
teacher for two years and for the
past six years as the director of
the Pre-School. She has directed
the summer day camp for the
youngest campers. Camp K'Ton-
Ton each summer since she
joined the JCC staff. The Pre
School program has grown under
her guidance to include many
aspects of early childhood
development including sports,
music, arts, crafts and all her
programs try to include the
"But, remember," said one
parent, "What she gives the most
of, is LOVE!"
In addition to traditional
Jewish recipes there are recipes
for "Friendship." "A Growing
Boy" and one for "A Happy
Family." Many people con-
tributed their long-time favorite
recipes for this cookbook and it is
full of good recipes by some of
Tampa's finest cooks.
The books may be purchased
at the desk at the Jewish
Community Center for $6.00.

Tu B'Shevat is known in the
Talmud as the "New Year of the
Trees." It celebrated the
beginning of Spring in Israel. At
this time of year, the earth once
again turns green and trees begin
to blossom.
Each student in the school
potted a small house plant in
celebration of the holiday.
Additionally, each class used its
Tzedakah collection for that week
to purchase a tree in Israel from
the Jewish National Fund.
Special packages of fruits grown
in Israel such as raisins, dates
and almonds were received by
each child.
Rabbi Leonard Rosenthal said,
"We would have loved to
celebrate Tu B'Shevat by plant-
ing a tree on the building site of
our new Synagogue. However, we
did not want to start landscaping
the site indiscriminately so we
did the next beat thing by allow-
ing our students a chance to

hands and then enjoying it at

Letter to the Editor
Editor's note: This letter is in
response to petitions sent to the
United Nations protesting a
stamp to be issued commerating
"the inalienable rights of the
Palestinian people."
These petitions were sent from
Tampa as a joint endeavor of
OHT and Tampa Jewish
Federation. We refer you to the
Editorial page.
EDITOR, The Jewish Fbridian.
The Secretary-General of the
United Nations wishes to thank
you for your communication
about the forthcoming United
Nations stamp issue to com-
memorate "inalienable righto of
the Palestinian people." He
regrets, however, that the heavy
burden of his official duties
prevents him from replying to
you personally.
0. 12 December 1979, the
United Nations General As-
sembly adopted a resolution on
the question of Palestine which,
among other things, instructed
the Secretary-General to direct
the United Nations Postal Ad-
ministration to issue stamps to
publicize the inalienable righto of
the Palestinian people.
In carrying out his responsibil-
ities as Chief Administrative
Officer of the United Nations,
under the terms of the United
Nations Charter, the Secretary-
General and the members of his
staff act impartially and ob-
jectively, consistent with the
exclusively international
character of given to them by the
Assembly. The Secretary-
General does not have the
authority to prevent the im-
plementation of a resolution
adopted by the General
Assembly. A General Assembly
resolution could only be reversed
by a subsequent decision of the
General Assembly itself.
The United Nations Postal
Administration will accordingly
issue a stamp which relates to the
inalienable rights of the
Palestinian people. However, the
stamp is not, as some misleading
reports suggest, to honor the
PLO or any other organized
group. Indeed, the only in-
scription on the stamp is "The
Inalienable Rights of the
Palestinian People."
I trust that this explanation
will help to allay any misgivings
you may have about this stamp
issue. Your interest in the United
Nations is most appreciated and
I hope you will continue to
support the activities of the
Sincerely yours,

An Inauguration Prayer
We extend our congratulations to President
Ronald Reagan and Vice President George Bush on
their inauguration Tuesday. As our new chiefs of
state, we wish them every success.
The times ahead are fraught with peril. The
return of the 52 American hostages Tuesday should
not lull us into believing otherwise. Both at home
and abroad, the American way of life is being chal-
lenged as never before. *
It will take all of their cunning to meet these
challenges. Particularly President Reagan must bear
the burden of many agonizing decisions in the years
We join all American citizens of every per-
suasion in praying for the kind of effective leadership
that will spruce up our international image,
strengthen our determination as a people, and
commit us to guarding the nation's precious
One More Sign
One more sign of the PLO domination of the
United Nations is carried in this week's "Letter to
the Editor" column. The General Assembly of the
UN is going to issue a stamp bearing the inscription
"The Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People."
But, we are reminded by the Chief of the Public
Inquiries Unit of the Department of Public Informa-
tion of the UN, "While the Secretary-General and
the members of his staff act impartially and ob-
jectively, consistent with the exclusively inter-
national character of their obligations, they must, at
the same time, carry out the instructions given to
them by the Assembly itself."
Maybe some ought to remind the assembly that it
was the recognition of the inalienable rights of the
Palestinians which led earlier General Assemblies to
creat an Arab state, Jordan and a Jewish state,
Israel. That earlier assembly was well aware of the
history of the area and that there was no such thing
as a Palestinian people only Arabs and Jews
living in an area which was called Palestine for a very
short time.
But, the UN assures us, "The stamp is not to
honour the PLO or any other organized group."
We don't see it that way.
Let's Hear it in Yiddish
At a time when there are unrelenting prognos-
tications foretelling the doom of the Yiddish
language and Yiddish culture, there are two Yiddish
stage productions being presented in South Florida.
Obviously, the producers are banking on the fact
that all those prophets of gloom simply are wrong.
One of the things we observe about these pre-
dictions is that concerned Jews, particularly those
with facility for the Yiddish language, all too readily
Well, here is an opportunity to strike a blow in
the cause not of doom but of survival and renewed
vigor. Going to Yiddish theatre in South Florida is
one jfay of making certain that the productions will
be a success and of holding out promise for more
such productions in the future.
More important, it is a way of contributing to
the survival of the Yiddish language and Yiddish
culture, and even to their renewed vigor.
It is also a way of having some darned good fun
as we exercise the old mama loshen.

Sinai Giveaway Regrettable
"riday, January 23, 1981
olume 3
Number 4
NOW THAT he is being
hounded out of office by public
opinion both at home and abroad,
we ought to remind ourselves
that the most surprising and
most costly error that Prime
Minister Begin made in his career
was the essentially unconditional
return of the Sinai to Egypt. This
poorly-conceived decision has ir-
retrievably changed for the worse
the course of Israel's history.
To judge from the way in
which world opinion treats Mr.
Begin, no one is even inclined to
recall that he was singlehandedly
responsible for this grandiose
sacrifice in the fruitless cause of
good intentions. It is a strategic
blunder beyond the capacity to
deal with it except in the most
negative terms. Far from
hastening the peace process as he
had imagined, it has only made it
that much thornier.
Even his far more moderate
opposition, the Labor Party,
which held governmental control
since the founding of the State
until Mr. Begin's surprising
Likud victory more than three
years ago, was opposed to ceding
the Sinai in one fell swoop with
little to speak of as quid pro quo.
THERE ARE few who would
argue that the Sinai should not
have been returned on some basis
ultimately, but it is a poor poker-
player indeed who would give
away the game even before it
l>egan. And that is precisely what
Mr. Begin did in the cause of
peace. His reward has been to be
characterized by world opinion as
a terrorist, a murderer, and "in-
transigent" negotiator.
On the other hand, Egypt's
President Sadat now stands
astride the Sinai imaged as a
humanist, a man willing to do
almost anything to come to some
accommodation with those recal-
citrant Israelis, the great and
patient arbitrator. No one talks
about his own terrorist past or
his adoration of Adolf Hitler.
No one bothers to read Sadat's
testament of political faith, pub-
lished in the form of an auto-
biography in 1978, which speaks
in the most hostile terms possible
about Israel this after his
phony, ballyhooed "peace
initiative" to Jerusalem in
November, 1977 quite as if he
dropped out of the skies without
years of earlier spadework
inuunuruted by Israel and then
continued by the two countries
until the event itself mutually
agreed upon.
REMEMBER the presentation
of the Nobel Peace Prize to both
men after their initial meeting in
Jerusalem? And Sadat's scan-
dalous refusal to go to Scan-
dinavia to accept it because Mr.
Begin had been given equal credit
for the "initiative," and after all
he, and he alone, was responsible
for it, and therefore only he alone
should be honored?
Remember Mr. Begin's dis-
astrous decision (again) to go
anyway despite the insult,
despite the lie? Remember the
revolting messianism of a porno-
graphic world press that attacked
the Nobel committee for com-
promising the worth of the prize
by giving it to both leaders, when
clearly it belonged only to Sadat?
This was the beginning of the
Begin "intransigence" label,
which the porno press pro-
For all these reasons, Mr.
Begin's Sinai giveaway will
haunt him and Israel forever
after. And then, there is yet
another consideration, the return
Tuesday of the American
hostages from their imprison-
ment in Iran.
THERE IS much debate about
what changes to expect in U.S.
policy toward Israel now that
Ronald Reagan is safely installed
in the White House. My own
inclination is to discount by
better than half all of President
Reagan's campaign palaver on
Israel and the Middle East and to
divide, by at least two, the
remainder. The left-overs may
possibly be a safe basis for future
What 1 am suggesting is that
there is little change we can hope
for. With the Sinai gone, with the
oil fields at Abu Rodeis given
away in the second most cavalier
gesture of the 20th century the
first will continue to be the U.S.
invitation to Moscow to have
their armed forces meet simul-
taneously in Berlin as a noble
conclusion to World War II we
can not anticipate that either
President Reagan or Secretary of
State Haig should alter the
course of the new U.S.-Egyptian
axis in the Middle East. After all,
did not Israel help forge it, help
downgrade its own strategic
value in the Middle East?
The return of the hostages will
make- the new Administration
even more disinclined to recast
Israel's role a posteriori, a move
that would only upset American
public opinion longing for a
return to some stability in the
area and a sense that we have
come through our dark night of
the soul with Iran, a major world
supplier of oil, naturally.
NONE OF this takes into con-
sideration the malice of the Euro-
pean Economic Community
which is perfectly willing to flush
Israel down the drain for a re-
defined guarantee of sympathetic
petropolicy with Araby.
This is why I said at the outset
that Mr. Begin's largesse was ir-
retrievably costly, not only
Israel, but also to the west
whose greed devoid of question,'
of morality makes it blind to th.
fact that the blunder wa, ,
burden not only Israel must bear
The truth, as I see it. is that
strategically, the west w(ii
ultimately rue the blunder u
well. If the protracted hostage
negotiations with Iran should
have taught the west anything at
all, it is that doing business with
the Middle East minions is an
impossible thing.
OBVIOUSLY, it has taught
neither Washington nor the EEC
a single blessed thing in terms of
Israel's difficulty in negotiating a
peace settlement with Egypt a
settlement President Sadat abso-
lutely does not want until his role
as leader of the Arab bloc is re-
That is why he is unalterably
opposed to the Jordanian option.
It's possibility for success ap-
pears to be too "risky" to him.
Success without Sadat is some-
thing Sadat will do without at all
costs.. Should not at least, Iran
have taught the west to wonder
about Sadat, and possibly also to
wonder if it is conceivable that
Israel should be wrong ("intran-
sigent") all the time?
With this ubiquitous western
blindness to the difficult
situation in which Israel finds
itself today, indeed to the dif-
ficult situation in which Israel
has found itself from the very
Ix-ginning. and with the equally
ubiquitous indifference to the
massive sacrifice Israel has made
in the cause of peace up until
now, the cost of the Israeli sac-
rifice looms larger than ever.
WHEN PUBLIC opinion no sacrifice at all

That is Israel's greatest
dilemma today. For more,

Israeli Exports Up Sharply
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli exports rose by 22.4
percent in 1980, reaching $5,326 billion, the Central
Bureau of Statistics announced. The main increase was in
industrial exports which rose by 30 percent (to $3,299
billion) followed by diamonds by 15 percent (to $1.4
billion). Agricultural exports rose only four percent, to
$070 million.
About half of the increase in value was due to dollar
inflation, as industrial exports by volume rose by only 14
percent without diamonds, which rose in volume by eight
percent to 2,326 million carats. Agricultural exports fell in
volume by 10 percent.

that sa'd- 'This erratic cash flow has
made it necessary for the Jewish
Agency to borrow huge sums at
extremely high interest rates
simply to meet daily expenses."
To alleviate this critical
situation in 1981, the cash
chairman suggested that all
communities follow the lead of
several larger federations,
transmitting annual allocations
to UJA in proportionate monthly
amounts, rather than in one or
two lump sum payments.
"Encouraging more commu-
nities to join this growing
program will be among our
highest priorities tor 1981,"
Cadden stated. "The individual
pledge is only the first step in our
campaigns. The continuing needs
of the Jewish people worldwide
require that we step up our cash
collection efforts and transmit
funds evenly and regularly. No
campaign is truly completed until

mitted for the benefit of our

"infelexible" Linowitz pointed
out that it is Israel alone that is
being asked to give up powers on

"Egypt isn't being asked to give

being made to extract that from

In fact, he said, the rise of anti-

"tip of an iceberg." stating that
these could be an expression of "a
pervasive and deep-rooted anti-

"The United Nations has been

greatest proportions because we
haven't caught up with it."
AMONG Klutznicks respon-
sibilities is enforcement of the
U.S. laws against the Arab
League's boycott of American
businesses that trade with Israel.
Under his aegis, U.S. activity
against American firms that held
the boycott has increased. "It's
an operating Department," he
said. "Nobody is complaining
except those who are charged."
A Department official later
told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency that in the year that
ended Sept. 30 (more than 9 of
the 12 months under Klutznick),
the Department handled 33 en-
forcement cases, and 12 resulted
in fines and compliance actions,
while 21 companies received
warning letters. In 76 cases,
activity ended after no violations
were established and about 126
warning letters were issued for
late reporting on possible
violations. In the last quarter of
the year, under Klutznick, seven
enforcement actions were taken.

that there is no study of religion

Change in Soviet Emigre
Processing Procedure
procedures for processing Soviet
Jewish emigrants that, if suc-
cessful might reduce the number
of Soviet Jews who choose to
settle in countries other than
Israel, are announced by HIAS.
Addressing a press conference
at HIAS headquarters here,
Gaynor Jacobson, executive vice
president of HIAS, said that
under the new plan Soviet Jewish
emigrants would spend only two
days in Vienna, their first stop
out of the Soviet Union, instead
of eight to ten days as heretofore.
THOSE WHO opt for settling
in Israel will fly there from
Vienna. The others, according to
the new plan, will go to a hotel
north of Rome where, during up
to a week's stay, they will receive
expert "joint counseling" from
representatives of HIAS, the
Joint Distribution Committee
and the Jewish Agency.
The counseling will consist of
providing up-to-date information
about life in Israel and the oppor-
tunities Israel has to offer to the
individual Soviet emigrant.
"Those with close relatives in
the U.S. or other countries will be
helped to be reunited with their
families," Jacobson explained.
"For all the other emigrants, a
conscientious and sensitive effort
will be made to help them choose
to go to Israel."
response to a question from the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
the new procedures do not indi-
cate a shift in policy on the part
of H.IAS and that any Soviet Jew
who insists on going to the U.S.
will be assited by HIAS.
Jacobson said he hoped that
under the new procedures, two-
thirds of future Soviet Jewish
emigrants would choose to settle
in Israel and one-third in the
U.S., Canada, Australia and
other countries. At present, the
figures are exactly the reverse, he
He added that he believed the
expert counseling to Soviet Jews
in Rome, which is to begin in a
few weeks, "will help many
refugees make better informed
choices than in the recent past."
Israel, he said, "has a great

Soviet Nuclear Weapons Still in Egypt?
The probability that the USSR introduced
nuclear weapons into Egypt during the last stage
of the Yom Kippur War is discussed in detail in
an article in the latest issue of the Jeursolem\
Journal of International Relations published by
the Hebrew University's Leonard Davis Institute
for International Relations.
At that time, wide publicity was given to the
possibility that, in addition to the SCUD missiles
already delivered, Moscow also had sent Egypt
warheads, suspected of being nuclear, for the!
The authors neither confirm nor deny the
assertion of deployment of Soviet atomic arms in
Egypt. They quote, among others, former Secre-
tary of State Henry Kissinger for a statement to
the effect that the U.S. has no evidence, or at
least no confirmed evidence, that the Soviet
Union introduced nuclear weapons into the
conflict. The authors add, "This was a typical
Kissinger answer, deliberately framed in am
biguous terms."
The executive vice chairman of the National
Jewish Community Relations Advisory Council
told the 400 delegates to that organization's
Plenary Session in San Diego that the dedication
American Jews give to the struggle for the
security of Israel and Soviet Jews "must be given
also to the struggle for conditions that will assure
domestic tranquility in this country."
Albert D. Chernin asserted that "the Bill of
Rights is alive and well," and added that "we in
the Jewish community relations field can justi-
fiably claim our share of the credit for con-
tributing to this unfolding expression ofl
American liberalism."
But he admitted that there are "chilling
elements of truth" in the view* of groups who see
the Bill of Rights as "destroying the American
family, sapping American values and leading to
the disintegration of American society."

Four More Years of Jimmy Carter
It Would Have Meant More Humiliation for Israel
(JTA) In the closing
weeks of its four mainly
dispute-ridden years of re-
lations with Israel and its
friends, Carter Administra-
tion policy-makers reverted
publicly from a form of
towards Israel-Arab affairs
during the presidential
election campaign to re-
newed backing of the
Rogers Plan proposals of:
1969. !
In addition to adherence to the
plan that calls for Israel to return
to its 1967 borders and abandon
Jerusalem, Carter Administra-
tion aides went further. To ac-
complish this purpose, they now
again goad Israel's American
friends to lessen their support for
the Middle East's only democ-
racy and cast aspersions on its
freely-elected government.
back to old perceptions indicates
what a second Carter term might
have meant for Israel Evidence
is in the post-election U.S. atti-
tude in the United Nations; the
comments of State Department
spokesmen; the personal remarks
of the U.S. Ambassador to the
UN, Donald McHenry; the views
of former Ambassador to Egypt,
Hermann Kilts; and the outline
of U.S. psychological operations
towards Israel offered by Dart-
mouth Prof. Ian Lustick, who
worked in the State Department
on Middle East issues in 1979-
1980 and accurately reflect U.S.
policy as it has been carried out
most of the Carter term.
In post-election address at
the-dinner given last month by
frierute of Israel to AFL-CIO
President Lane Kirkland. Presi-
dent. Carter characteristically
lauded Israel's devotion to
political democracy and hailed
the Camp David agreements.
But he omitted such elements
Ambassador McHenry,
as the unity of Jerusalem, op-
position to a Palestinian state
and dealing with the Palestine
Liberation Organization, and
Jewish life and Israeli security
related to the West Bank, Gaza
Strip and the Golan Heights.
This presentation essentially was
in keeping with the Lustick
formula of limited support for
Israel a formula the President
outlined in Clinton, Mass. in
vacillating treatment of Israel in
its fourth year is illustrated by
pre-election and post-election
developments. On Mar. 1, the
U.S. voted in the UN Security
Council for Israel to abandon
Jerusalem, but in the subsequent
Congressional storm, much like
after the Soviet-U.S. agreement
Oct. 1, 1977, Carter repudiated
the U.S. vote, but the State
Department never changed it
formally at the UN.
After that, the Administration
did not cast any votes against
Israel in the Security Council
until mid-December after the
Presidential elections when
the U.S. voted along with the
other 14 members of the Security
Council on a resolution calling
upon Israel to allow two West!
Bank Arab mayors to return to
their homes after they had been
deported by Israel following the
terrorist ambush attack last May
in Hebron in which six yeshiva
students were killed.
Immediately after the vote
took place, McHenry delivered a
statement that might well go
down as the quotation of the
year: "Cynics may claim that we
would have voted diffrently
before Nov. 4, but I can't be hos-
tage to cynics." The resolution on
the mayors was one of six anti-
Israel resolutions the Security
Council passed the same day.
Through it all. the U.S. dele-
gation allowed Israel to be merc'-
lessly brow-beaten.
THERE WAS also an element
of vacillation on the part of the
U.S. when Secretary of State
Edmund Muskie addressed the
Security Council on Aug. 20
when that body voted to censure
Israel for proclaiming united
Jerusalem as its capital and
urged all states that had em-
bassies in the holy city to with-
draw them.
Muskie told the Council that
the resolution "is illustrative of a
preoccupation which has
produced this series of un-
balanced and unrealistic resolu-
tions on Middle East issues. It
fails to serve the goal of all faiths
that look to Jerusalem as holy."
He urged that "debates and
resolutions that are not germane
to the peace process and even
harmful to it should stop.
Elsewhere in southwest Asia, and
in southeast Asia, warfare is a
present reality. The aggressor
nations make no effort to find
peace. Yet this Council is con-
tinuously drawn to the Middle
East, where authentic work for
peace is underway."
BUT MUSKIE. instead of
vetoing the measure as his words
seemed to indicate he would,
instead abstained.
When Jordan's delegate en-
gaged in anti-Semitic abuse of e
kind not expressed by any
government in any international
forum since the time of the Nazis,
the U.S. delegation was silent.
Only Israel's envoy responded to
The focus of blame for Middle
East problems constantly is put
on Israel. In an interview pub-
lished Dec. 12 in the Kansas City
Jewish Chronicle, McHenry said
Israel's policies provide "am-
munition" to Israel's enemies.
'"We don't believe Israel's actions
on settlements, on Jerusalem, in
southern Lebanon, in the repres-
sive actions in the West Bank are
in the interests of Israel, the
interest of peace."
He rejected Israel's role in the
U.S. strategic interest. "I don't
use the language strategic
ally,' he said.
McHenry, 44, who leaves office
Jan. 19, presumably to take an
academic post, called for debate
in America about Israel's
policies. "There is a frequent
tendency among supporters of
Israel in the U.S. to take a
position that comes very close to
'my country, right or wrong' ",
he said. His words, some noted
here, come very close to calling
on Americans to denounce Israel.
THE WINTER issue of
Foreign Policy magazine, pub-
lished by the Carnegie Endow-
ment for International Peace,
contained two attacks on Israel.
Under the title, "Saving Camp
David," Kilts hinted Israel de-
ceived the U.S. at Camp David.
On the Jerusalem issue and
settlements, Eilts said "the
Americans had misunderstood or
had been misled."
Agreeing most of the way with
McHenry about the PLO, Eilts
said "only through open U.S.
contacts with the PLO leadership
will it be possible to guage
whether the PLO would be
willing and able to participate re-
sponsibly in broader peace
negotiations." Eilts added that
"in return, the PLO must re-
nounce terrorism." He did not
mention adherence to Security
Council Resolutions 242 or 338.
He regards Camp David as
having givea Israel too much

future," Eilts noted, the UJ
may find it prudent to sh
