The Bush administration
expressed regret that the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion has "flat out" rejected
proposals by Secretary of
State James Baker to bring
about Israeli-Palestinian peace
"If we are ever to get the
process off the ground, Pales-
tinians are going to have to
find a way to respond posi-
tively," State Department spo-
keswoman Margaret Tutwiler
She was reacting to the
announcement that the PLO's
Central Council, which is
meeting in Baghdad, was
asked by PLO leader Yasir
Arafat to reject the "five
points" Baker proposed to
Bush: Saudi Sale No Threat
The Bush administration is
trying to convince Congress
and the American public that
its proposed $3 billion sale to
Saudi Arabia of 315 tanks and
other military equipment
poses no threat to Israel.
While the Abrams M1-A2 is
the "world's best tank," its
possession by the Saudis would
not change the military bal-
ance in the Middle East in a
way that "would negatively
affect Israel," a State Depart-
ment official said.
He reiterated the Bush
administration's commitment
to maintain Israel's qualitative
edge over any possible combin-
ation of enemies against it.
The official was briefing
reporters on the administra-
tion's informal notification to

Congress that it plans to sell
the Saudis the tanks and vari-
ous other military vehicles.
The tanks alone cost $1.1 bil-
The notification triggered a
20-day period of consultations
with Congress to be followed
immediately by formal notifi-
cation. Once that happens,
Congress has 30 days to vote
down an arms sale; otherwise
it automatically goes through.
The Israeli government
opposes arms sales to any
Arab government, except
Egypt, which has signed a
peace treaty with the Jewish
But the State Department
official indicated he does not
expect Israel's opposition to be
as vociferous as it was for such
past deals as the 1981 sale of
AW ACS surveillance planes to
Saudi Arabia.
The organized Jewish com-
munity has voiced opposition
to the sale, but has not yet
decided whether to engage in
an all-out fight with the admin-
istration over it.
"We support the consulta-
tions between Congress and
the Executive Branch," Toby
Dershowitz, spokeswoman for
the American Israel Public
Affairs Committee, said last
week. She noted that in the
past there had not been such
extensive consultations as
there have been over the cur-
rent sale.
Dershowitz indicated that
AIPAC would like to avoid an
all-out fight. She said that if
details can be worked out to
the satisfaction of supporters
of Israel, the arms sale is
"likely to go through."
Israel and Egypt to bring
about an Israeli- Palestinian
meeting in Cairo.
The State Department has
emphasized that the Cairo
meeting would be a way of
hammering out the details of
Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir's plan to hold elections
on the West Bank and Gaza
But Tutwiler did not seem to
feel that Shamir's remarks in
an interview with Ma'ariv
were also a rejection of
Baker's proposals.
She quoted Shamir as say-
ing: "Why go all the way to
Cairo when both sides, Israelis
and Palestinians, are here?
After all, this would be a meet-
ing to discuss only technical
matters concerning the modal-
ities of the election.
"Israel would send a delega-
tion of officials knowledgeable
on the subjects, rather than a
delegation of politicians. This
would be a preliminary stage
only and it should not be port-
rayed as a major international
effort," she quoted the prem-
ier as saying.
Tutwiler said Shamir's
remarks do not "rule out or
rule in a different meeting,
which we are still working
on," that would deal with "the
overall framework" of peace
Baker's proposals were not
discussed when Robert Pelle-
treau, the U.S. ambassador to
Tunisia, met informally with
PLO officials, Tutwiler said.
as they have in the past, in
which case Israel's relations
with the United States would
remain as they are, Shamir
But if the Americans refuse
to back off, relations would
change for the worse. "We
wish to avoid a confrontation
but we will not give in not
even for the United States,"
Shamir asserted.
He said Likud would not
take the initiative to break up
its coalition with the Labor
Party, but would act to block
efforts by Labor to form a
new, narrowly based coalition
under its leadership.
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir stated flatly this week that
he would risk a confrontation
with the United States sooner
than negotiate with the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization.
Addressing the Likud Knes-
set faction, Shamir forecast a
period of tension with Wash-

Peace Process Alive
Israel's peace initiative is not
dead yet, according to Foreign
Minister Moshe Arens, but
instead of negotiating with the
Palestinians, the dialogue for
the moment is with Washing-
ton and there is every
chance that agreement will be
reached over how to proceed.
Interviewed on Army Radio,
the foreign minister dismissed
reports from Israeli correspon-
dents in Washington that U.S.
Secretary of State James
Baker is "growing impatient"
with the positions taken by
himself and Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir.
He said that from his
acquaintanceship with Baker,
he is convinced the secretary
does not lose patience easily.
"We, for our part, will not
lose patience because we are
negotiating over our vital
interests," the foreign minis-
ter said.

Military Balance Shift
In Middle East?
Israel-Morocco Phone Link Established
TEL AVIV (JTA) A direct-dialing telephone link
between Israel and Morocco was inaugurated with a
telephone conversation between Minister Without Port-
folio Raphael Edri in Tel Aviv and Robert Asseraf, a leader
of the Moroccan Jewish Community.
Since the Yom Kippur war,
Syria, Jordan and Egypt have
doubled the size of their tank
and aircraft inventories. From
a combined force of 4,500
tanks in 1973, Israel's three
Arab neighbors built up their
armored forces to 7,300 tanks,
an increase of 62%. Fighter
aircraft in the three countries
almost doubled from 750 in
1973 to the qurrent level of
approximately 1,400, while the
level of assault helicopters
increased by 150% from 200 to
500. Growth levels in the
peripheral states of Libya,
Iraq and Saudi Arabia have
been even more striking.
A number of factors account
for this dramatic level of mili-
tary expansion and moderniza-
tion. First and foremost, the
Arab states increased the size
and sophistication of their
arsenals to regain superiority
over Israel, following the set-
backs they suffered during the
fighting in October 1973. This
rationale primarily affected
Egypt and Syria immediately
after the war as they replaced
war losses with increasingly
modern equipment, and con-
tinues in Syria to this day.
It also extended, however, to
states which played only a
secondary role in 1973, such as
Libya, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.
The monarchy in Saudi Arabia
began its buildup with the pur-
chase of American F-15 figh-
ters in 1978. During the last 10
years, the Saudis acquired
arms and other military ser-
vices from the United States
worth $30 billion. Just two
months ago, the Administra-
tion sold them another pack-
age worth $850 million.
One factor driving the influx
of arms into the region during
the last 15 years has been the
economic power brought about
by petroleum exports, allow-
ing the Arab oil states to spend
vast sums on their armed
forces. The leverage provided
by petroleum allowed these
states to have significant influ-
ence over the arms supplier
nations, particularly in West-
ern Europe. A number of arms
purchases were paid for by oil
The oil boom also indirectly
assisted non-petroleum pro-
ducers in the region, as states
such as Saudi Arabia financed
military acquisitions by Jordan
and Syria, among others. By
contrast, Israel, with its lim-
ited economic resources, has
had to be more selective in
choosing which weapons sys-
tems to import, and more con-
servative in determining what
quantity of each weapon to
Petroleum income for the
oil-producing states is still rel-
atively high. Where shortfalls
have occurred it has been poss-
ible to continue purchasing
weapons by reducing civilian
imports. When faced with a

choice between curtailing
weapons purchases or reduc-
ing investments in economic
infrastructure, the common
result has been a decision to
acquire more military hard-
In addition, large-scale Arab
arms imports have often been
prompted by domestic political
considerations, such as the
prestige created by the posses-
sion of modern technology and
the assurance of continued loy-
alty by the nation's armed
forces. For example, Egyptian
President huttii ivlubarak sub-
stantially increased arms
imports and total military
expenditures after Anwar
Sadat's assassination to win
the allegiance of the Egyptian
It is likely that arms imports
in the Middle East will con-
tinue at a high pace for the
next few years as more weap-
ons are purchased and delivery
is made of previously ordered
equipment. Although annual
imports probably will not
exceed the record $18.5 billion
in deliveries recorded in 1982,
it is doubtful that they will
drop below the $10 billion-plus
level maintained since the late
1970's. Further, while the
total volume of arms sales may
level off slightly as Arab coun-
tries reach the limit of their
ability to deploy the quantity
of arms delivered, major arms
sales of increasing technical
sophistication will continue as
forces are modernized to
replace obsolote equipment.
The latest example of this
trend is the expected proposal
to sell Saudi Arabia America's
top-of-the-line M-1A1 tanks.
Though there is no apparent
military threat for which
weapons of this sophistication
are needed, the Saudis are
insisting on the need to replace
older tanks.
As Arab forces grow,, Jeru-
salem will be forced to devote
more resources to defense at a
time when economic realities,
including a reduction in the
real value of U.S. foreign aid,
are pushing the Israeli budget
in the reverse direction. The
Jewish State is still capable of
meeting this growing external
threat, but unless multilateral
efforts are made to restrain
the regional arms race, Israel
will find its deterrent capabil-
ity increasingly diminished.

analyst for the American Israel Public
Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

Hussein Addresses Canadian Parliament
OTTAWA (JTA) King Hussein of Jordan told a joint
session of the Canadian Parliament that "Israel's unwil-
lingness to cede to Palestinians the Arab territories
occupied by force in the 1967 war is the one remaining
obstacle to a just peace," in the Middle East. Hussein, here
on a 7-day state visit, is the first Arab leader and the first
head of a non-democratic regime ever to address the
assembled members of the House of Commons and Senate.

Where are the Voices
Protesting Threats to Israel?
Even as the pressure mounts from the
Administration in Washington for Israel to
accept the Baker and Mubarak Plans for
implementing the Shamir proposal for
Palestinian elections, the Arab states push
ahead with their annual push to have Israel
expelled from the United Nations.
While it is true that the United States
helps to mobilize votes against this outra-
geous Arab proposal, the voice of high
Government officials were virtually mute
as Libya prepared to present the seventh
formal motion in seven years to oust Israel
from the UN.
Cannot Stand Idly By
Correct as America may be in its position
that Israel should accept the positions of
Secretary of State Baker or of Egyptian
President Mubarak, it cannot stand idly by
while the virtually total war against the
Jewish State is waged by the Libyan-led
At the same time, the Bush Administra-
tion deserves credit for influencing the
UNESCO vote postponing the PLO's appli-
cation for membership. The rejection, or at
least the postponement for two years, of
UNESCO membership came with a price.
The UNESCO governing body voted to
provide $1 million for Palestinian participa-
tion in various UNESCO-sponsored activi-
The Conference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations warned
that "giving the UNESCO platform to the
PLO could cause serious mischief and
serve as a precedent for further attempts
by the PLO to enter into and participate in
the work of other UN agencies under the
name of a non-existent 'Palestine.' "
Cause For Concern
Yet another cause for concern is the
seeming agreement among the surviving
members of Lebanon's parliament to per-
mit greater Moslem rule over Israel's
northern neighbor, and to allow Syrian
occupation of Lebanon to continue more or
less in its present form.
Israel's right to maintain its security
zone in southern Lebanon must be main-
tained, at least so long as Damascus keeps
a major armed force in the rest of that
country torn by so many years of civil war.
Every Jewish organization has a respon-
sibility to join in voicing support for Israel
at a time when so many international blocs
threaten her.
The time is now to pick up a pen or sit
down at the typewriter, and let both the
President and the Congress realize that
American Jewry is united behind the State
of Israel's security.

Helping AIDS Victims
total of 528 Jews suffering
from AIDS symptoms or their
precursor, AIDS-related com-
plex, received clinical care and
other forms of help over a
12-month period from 36 Jew-
ish family service agencies
throughout the United States,
a recent survey disclosed.
mhe survey was conducted
r/ the Association of Jewish
Family and Childrens Agen-
cies, according to Burt Gold-
berg, executive director of the
umbrella association head-
quartered in Kendall
Park, N.J. Goldberg said the
association sent question-
naires to 61 of its 135 member
agencies known to be qualified
to provide such care.
Goldberg estimated that
infected Jews probably consti-
tute no more and no less than
the general population. But
because AIDS victims can
carry the virus for years
before developing the fatal
symptoms, there is no way to
compare either the numbers or
percentages of infected Jews
and non-Jews, he said.
The survey, covering the
period Aug. 1,1987, to July 31,
1988, revealed that 109 family
members of AIDS victims
received counseling in that
period and eight additional
families obtained financial aid
from the family agencies.
Of the 528 Jewish AIDS or
ARC sufferers, 26 received
financial help, 30 were pro-
vided with meals-on-wheels
and seven received home-
maker services.
Survey data showed that, in
addition, 14 of the ill received
Passover baskets; 14 received
information and referral help;
two obtained job assistance
The agency reported it had
been "working closely with the
gay Jewish community and
have been using members of
the Dallas gay havurah as
resource people and volun-
teers for other programs at
the agency."

and each received dental care
and chaplaincy visits. Jewish
agencies assisted with two
Six patients in the terminal
stage of their illness received

A family agency in Spring-
field, Mass., reported that one
of its programs was Chesed
House, an "independent living
facility for homeless persons
with AIDS or ARC."
The Jewish Social Service of
Metropolitan Washington
reported that all of its services
are available to Jews suffering
from AIDS or ARC.
The agency said these
included counseling for indi-
viduals, family and friends;
home-delivered kosher meals;
escorted transportation to
medical appointments; home
health care; and home-based
hospice care.
The Dallas Jewish Family
Service said it facilitated dis-
cussions among the rabbinic
community "to insure that the
issue of AIDS does not become
a gay issue, but rather an issue
of concern to all Jews."

PARIS (JTA) The Gen-
eral Conference of the United
Nations Educational, Scien-
tific and Cultural Organization
decided by unanimous vote
Tuesday to postpone for two
years consideration of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion's request for admission as
the "state of Palestine."
But Israel was dissatisfied
and complained angrily that
the PLO's bid will be allowed
to come up for consideration at
the next session of the General
Conference in Oct. 1991.
The 161-member General
Conference of UNESCO is
that agency's equivalent of the

Half The 15 Nuns At Auschwitz Have
Already Left The Convent
NEW YORK (JTA) About half the nuns at the
Auschwitz convent have already left the convent, accord-

Sultanik, who was in Poland last week, said several
members of the Polish government and Polish Catholic
Church officials told him that "several," perhaps "seven or
eight" of an estimated 15 nuns at the Carmelite convent
have left and that the others will leave soon. Sultanik said
he "has no idea" where the nuns went.

U.N. Vote Shows Soviet Switch
For the first time since
1982, the Soviet Union has not
joined with the Arab countries
in their annual move to oust
Israel from the United
The Soviets chose to abstain
Tuesday from voting on
whether the Arab move to
revoke Israel's U.N. credenti-
als should be considered by the
General Assembly. The two
Soviet republics that hold sep-
arate votes, Byelorussia and
the Ukraine, followed suit.
The rest of the Eastern bloc
countries also either abstained
or, in the cases of Hungary,
Romania and Yugoslavia,
voted in support of Israel.
How they vote is important
to Israel, which is eager to
restore relations with Eastern
bloc nations that cut ties to the
Jewish state in 1967. Romania
never severed relations, and
Hungary restored them last
Overall, the General Assem-
bly decisively rejected the
Arab attempt in Tuesday's
credentials vote, with 95 coun-
tries voting in favor of a reso-
lution tabling the Arab move.
Hebrew Grammar Book in Chinese
JERUSALEM (JTA) A Chinese scholar has just
completed a Hebrew grammar book for Chinese-speaking
Cho Chiang, who heads the Institute for African and
West Asian Studies at the Chinese Academy of Science,
wrote to Ben-Zion Fischler, head of the World Zionist
Organization's Hebrew Language Section, saying he was
at the point of completing the grammar. Cho said he would
soon be sending Fischler galleys for perusal and comments.
The Chinese scholar's letter, written in flowing biblical
Hebrew, explained that while Hebrew is taught at only two
Chinese universities Peking and Nanking his book is
intended to help Chinese-speaking students of Hebrew in
such countries as Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong and the
United States.

Community Effort Helps
Make Bar Mitzvah A Reality
At one time, the thought of

would never materialize for
Mark Friedland.
The South Broward youth
was just one of an unknown
number of Jewish youths
whose learning disabilities
made it difficult to get a Jew-
ish education.
So when Friedland was cal-
led to read his Haftorah
recently at the Temple Beth
Ahm Israel synagogue, it was
not only a personal victory.
It was a victory for the 10
other children who are
involved in a creative learning
program. And it was a victory
for a community that cared
enough about their Jewish

because his needs happen to be
different and that you might
have to go a little slower or
repeat things a few more
times. He still comes out of a
program like this with an
awareness of Judaism."
Until the Jewish Learning
Center opened, many children
with a variety of disabilities
might have missed out on an
important Jewish education,
particularly in a group setting
with their peers.
It was one child's need,
though, that opened the doors
for so many others.
About two years ago, a fam-
ily approached Beth Ahm
Israel spiritual leader Rabbi
Avraham Kapnek with an
inquiry about a special Jewish
program for their child. There
weren't any such programs
and Kapnek realized that other
children could use such a pro-
gram too.
Kapnek developed the pro-
gram with Dr. Leon Weiss-
berg, director of the Jewish
Federation of South Brow-
ard's Office of Jewish Educa-
tion (OJE), and the Rabbis and
Educational Directors Council
Beth Ahm Israel Cantor
Eric Lindenbaum also works
closely with the children.
Funds for the program are
provided by the OJE, the par-
ticipant's synagogue and from
private tuition fees.

father, also has a daughter

Jewish Agency Officials Visit U.S. Communities
NEW YORK A team of
five officials representing the
Jewish Agency for Israel
(JAFI), and the Israel office of
the United Israel Appeal
(UIA), will visit 18 U.S. com-
munities in November to meet
with Jewish Agency commit-
tees and campaign leaders,
announced UIA Vice Chair-
man, Edgar L. Cadden of Chi-
The participants in the visits
will include Jewish Agency
officials, Moshe Nativ, director
general; Howard Weisband,
secretary general; Zvi Barak,
director general of the Trea-
sury Department; and Arnon
Mantver, director general of
the Department of Immigra-
tion and Absorption. Neale

UIA's Israel office, will also be
These senior personnel will
bring an update on the pro-
gress within the Jewish
Agency and Israel. The Jewish
Agency is in the midst of
assisting in the settlement of a
new wave of olim. These olim,
primarily from the Soviet
Union and Argentina, present
the most positive challenge to
the traditional task of the
Agency. JAFI has increased
its budget to handle the more
than 18,000 new olim to Israel
this year. The Department of
Immigration and Absorption,
using the three tracks of
absorption: absorption cen-
ters, direct absorption and
municipality based absorp-
tion projects, is preparing for
the possibility of 100,000 new
olim in the next two to three
One of the concerns of UIA
and JAFI is the flow of funds
from the American Jewish
community, which provides for
the majority of this work to
take place. In recent years,
federation allocations to the
Jewish Agency have declined
in percentage as compared to
the overall campaign increase.
These officials will be prepared
to discuss this dilemma with
federation leadership.
These visits are being spon-
sored by the United Israel
Appeal, that provides funds,
raised by UJA/federation cam-
paigns in America, to aid the
people of Israel. These funds
