that despite the official policy of
prohibiting negotiations with the
PLO, four successive U.S. Ad-
ministrations Nixon, Ford,
Carter and now Reagan have
talked secretly to various offi-
cials of the organization. The
Times said that the Reagan Ad-
ministration has "quietly con-
tinued low-level contacts with the
PLO through the Central Intelli-
gence Agency and the U.S.
Embassy in Beirut."
Reacting to that report, the
State Department said that "the
United States will not recognize
or negotiate with the PLO as long
as the PLO does not recognize
Israel's right to exist and does
not accept UN Security Council
Resolutions 242 and 338."
There was no reference to the
1'LO's record of terrorism or
alignment with the Soviet Union.
Such references had been rou-
tinely made by Reagan during
last year's presidential campaign
and even after the election. Thus,
he I..Id New Y ork Tim es
columnist William Safire in
March of 1980: "I don't see any
reason to negotiate with a terror-
ist group."
Reagan said that if the PLO
were to embrace Resolution 242,
"I'd still want to know whether
they represent the Palestinian
people they claim to represent."
Commented Safire: "His
mindset is wholly different from
that of Mr. Carter's coterie of

Israel Takes
Low Key Part
In Ceasefire
JERUSALEM Israel is acting low key in its
acceptance of a ceasefire with the forces of the Palestine
Liberation Organization in Lebanon, which was still hold-
ing as of mid-week. Not so for the Reagan Administration
in Washington.
Spokesmen for President Reagan are already spec-
ulating on just when the Administration will resume its
delivery of the now-twice suspended shipment of 10 F16
jet-fighters to Israel. They are so jubilant about the
ceasefire that they say that a decision should be forth-
coming within a week, possibly by Aug. 10, which would
be just two months after the first suspension which came
in the wake of Israel's bombing of a French-supplied nuc-
lear reactor in Iraq.
ISRAEL'S AMBASSADOR to the United States
Ephraim Evron met for more than an hour Monday in
Washington with U.S. envoy Philip Habib, who returned
from his Middle East shuttle to report to the White House
following the ceasefire arrangement last weekend. After
their meeting, Evron denied that discussions had taken
place about the F16s, but he affirmed that Israel expected
the shipment of the fighter planes to take place soon.
In the aftermath of growing criticism of Israel for its
bombing sorties over Beirut, Administration officials
muted their anti-Israel comments to conform to President
Reagan's own "pro-Israel" attitude. Still, Israel began
new flying missions over Beirut and southern Lebanon to
monitor the activities of PLO forces now being rearmed
and regrouped by Moscow and Syria. The PLO objected,
calling the overflights "a violation," but vowing never-
theless that "we will act with restraint."
AT THE SAME time, Israel was targeted for new
rocket attacks by members of the George Habash-led
Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which Israel
also listed as a violation of the ceasefire. The Palestine
Liberation Organization responded that the PLFP was
merely attacking Lebanese Christian forces in southern
Lebanon under Maj. Saad Haddad, whom Israel has been
backing, but Yasir Arafat is presumed to have pressured

non. He certainly never reported
Ui Israel that he was on the brink
of reaching a settlement, officials
said. On the contrary, he always
returned to Israel bearing bad
lidings. It was Israel's repeated
self restraint that prevented a
military escalation of the crisis,
the officials claimed.
ANGER WAS also expressed
here over the remarks of Deputy
Secretary of Stale WUliam Clark
who U>ld reporters in Washington
that the Iteagan Administration
fell "disappointment and some
embarrassment" when Begin
ordered the air raid on Beirut
shortly after Slate Department
Counsellor Robert McFarlane
had conferred with the Prime
Minister in Jerusalem about
Israel's use of American-supplied
wea|Mins in offensive action*
The gravity of the rift with
Washington seemed to dawn
slowly on Israeli political circles.
I ii fuel, there seemed to be little
up|M-ociulion in Jerusalem of how
vehemently critical U.S. opinion
was of Israeli actions.
One lacior which brought
Inline to Israeli politicians and
piililn how serious the situation
hud become was the television
accounts of the havoc wrought by
the Israeli liombings of Beirut.
Those accounts in U.S. net-
work television films broadcast
lieic ami seen previously all over
the U.S.. were ihe first inkling
Israeli viewers had of the nature
ol the Iteirul raid.
Another factor that left the Is-
raelis shaken was ihe statement
by Ambassador Kphraim Evron
in Washington, after a meeting
with Secretary of State Alexan-
der lluig. thai this was "one of
llie toughest limes" in U.S.-
Israeli relations.
AMOS EIRAN. who was a po-
htical counselor at the Israeli
Kmbussy in Washington during
much of the 70s and is now active
in the opposition Labor Party,,
told Israeli radio listeners that
the comments made by U.S.
ol licials were "unprecedented.
Oilier observes compared the
atmosphere with the tense U.S.-
Israeli relationship after the S'nai
campaign of October. 1956 when
the U.S.. joined by the Soviet
Union, ordered Israel to with-
draw its troops from Sinai. <
In an apparent attempt to
mitigate hostile opinion. Air
lone Commander Gen. David
lvry said the Air Force was under
strict orders lo keep civilian
casualties at an absolute
minimum in its strikes against
targets in Lebanon. He said Is-
raeli pilots were dropping the
smallest bombs possible for the
designated targets and the
minimum number of bombs.
"THE PROBLEM is that the
PLO deliberately places its
military' installation civilian sur-
1 roundings." Ivry said. "We have
not changed our policy of trying
not to harm civilians but we have
designated new targets which we
have not touched before."
Gen. Ben-Gal. who announced
the latest air strikes, acknowl-
edged that it was impossible to
completely silence artillery and
Katyusha rocket launchers by air
attacks since they are highly
mobile. "To prevent fire against
you completely, you have to be
present on the gun site," he said,
implying that in the last resort,
i Israeli ground forces would have
E occupy the.. Palestinian
sitions in south Lebanon as
ey did in 1978.

Reagan Once Vowed It Wasn't So
Are We Back to Business
As Usual With the PLO?
Continued from Page 1
-amber 3, 1980, Reagan ad-
^j a B'nai B'rith convention
i Washington and had this to
(bout the PLO: "President
ter refuses to brand the PLO
t| terrorist organization. I have
[ hesitation in doing so." And
fcwent on to elaborate:
"We live in a world in which
jv band of thugs clever enough
, get the word 'liberation' into
, name can thereupon murder
col children and have its
,jls considered glamorous and
brious. Terrorists are not guer-
js or commandos, or freedom-
jhters or anything else. They

| The I'LO is said to represent
Palestinian refugees. It rep-
ents no one but the leaders
hio establish it as a means of or
poking aggression against
el. The PLO is kept under
bt control in every state in the
except Lebanon, which it
lueffectively destroyed.
| AS FOR those it purports to
present, when any Palestinian
athes a word about peace to
|srael. he is an immediate target
assassination. The PLO has
unlered more Palestinians than
lu.s Israelis.
"This nation made an agree-
ment with Israel in 1975 concern-
ing its relations with the PLO.
This Administration (President
Carter's) has violated that agree-
"We are concerned not only
with whether the PLO renounces
its charter calling for the destruc-
tion of Israel, we are equally con-
cerned with whether it is truly
representative of the Palestinian
people. If we can be satisfied on
both counts, then we will not be
dealing with the PLO as we know
it, but a quite different organiza-
tion, one truly representative of
those Arab Palestinians dedi-
cated to peace and not to the
establishment of a Soviet
Satellite in the heart of the
Middle East."
On October 19, 1980, then Vice
Presidential candidate George
Bush spoke before the Zionist
Organization of America and de-
clared: "As a former U.S. Am-
bassador to the United Nations
with a special understanding of
the role this country plays in that
organization, I have been ap-
palled in recent times over the
equivocal, indeed two-faced
policy of the Carter Administra-
tion and its UN representatives
in dealing with the status of the

. M the same time, the State
I^Partment seemed to be accept -
I the Israeli position not to use
t term "ceasefire" in connec-
tion with Habib's mission. Israeli
Ambassador I'.phraim Evron,
after meeting with Secretary of
Stale Alexander Haig, used the
term "peaceful arrangement."
Fischer said this is a "semantical
point" and that what both Israel
and the U.S. want is a "cessation
of hostilities."
I le said other parties are try ing
to use their influence'' with the
I'LO, since the U.S. has no con-
tacts with it. Fischer refused to
name the other parties with it.
Fischer refused to name the other
parties although State Depart-
ment sources acknowledged that
one ol them is Saudi Arabia.
U.S. Israeli relations remained
"close and lnendly" and would
continue to remain so even
though, as he noted, friends do
have disagreements. His state-
ments seemed to be a conscious
effort by the Administration to
lone down the growing criticism
ol Israel lhai has appeared in
Washington in the aftermath of
Israel's air raid on I'LO head-
quarters in Beirul last Friday
which resulted in heavy civilian
Meanwhile, Israel's usual sup-
porters in Congress have not
jumped to its defense. Rep. Ste-
phen Solarz, (D., N.Y.), in televi-
sion appearances, was the only
member of Congress to publicly
defend Israel's raid on Beirut.
He said it was an effort to
destroy the "head" as well as the
"body" of Palestinian terrorists.
Solarz pointed out that most
members of Congress continue to
support arms for Israel and that
there is a majority in the Senate
and the House opposed to selling
AW ACS reconnaissance aircraft
and other arms to Saudi Arabia.
Reagan stressed that there is
no reveiw of American policy to-
ward Israel or whether to hold up
other arms shipments to Israel
beyond the 10 F16 jet fighter-
bombers which were suspended
indefinitely following the Beirut
less than an international Ku
Klux Klan, pledged to hatred,
violence and the destruction of
the values and free institutions
we hold dear. It should be
branded as such by this Ad-
ministration regardless of the
views held by President Carter's
former UN Ambassador and
current campaign surrogate,
Andrew Young."
Even after Reagan assumed
office, he continued his tough
talk against the PLO. He told
five reporters on Feb. 2 that the
PLO continued to declare that
Israel did not have "a right to
exist." He referred to "the terror-
ism that is being practiced by the
PLO," adding: "I never thought
that the PLO had ever been
elected by the Palestinians. May-
be it is recognized by them as
their leadership, but I've never
seen that that's been definitely
As is the case during the early
months of any new Administra-
tion, there is considerable jockey-
ing for influence between the new
batch of political appointees and
the career bureaucrats. This is
especially the case at the State
Department, where the so-called
area specialists are supposed to
have the historical memory to
"guide" a new Administration's
According to well-placed U.S.
officials, these Middle Eastern
experts at the State Department
have made it their business
during this recent period to make
certain that the once-tough
stance against the PLO by
Reagan, Bush and others would
be weakened.
Whenever a politically-ap-
pointed official has reverted back
to the campaign rhetoric against
the PLO as was the case
during National Security Adviser
Richard Allen's remarks on
ABC's '10-20 news program in
April or Under Secretary of De-
fense Fred Ikle's speech before
the annual policy conference of
the American Israel Public
Affairs Committee in May
careerists at the State Depart-
ment have shuddered. Concerned
about negative Arab reaction, es-
pecially from the Saudis, they
have doubled up their efforts to
make certain that such "slips"
don't happen again.
IN THE wake of the story in
The Los Angeles Times it now
appears that the traditional
voices in the State Department
have won the day. The new Ad-
ministration, formally, has been
brought into line on this sensitive
issue, still holding out hope for
PLO moderation and eventual in-
clusion in the peace process.
During that famous interview
with Reagan by Safire some 16

On many issues, U.S. foreign
policy has shifted since Reagan

the Soviet Union, Latin America,
Africa and the Third World. But
when it cornea to the Middle
East, there has been little shift so
far. The shots are still being

Part in Ceasefire

the splinter PLFP to put an end to the attacks.
"The end of armed attacks which has been achieved
could be a first important step on the road to greater calm
and security in the area," said Habib on his return to
Washington. "This will be indispensable if future prog-
ress is to be made toward a broad and lasting peace in the
Middle East."
A SPOKESMAN for the State Department, Dean
Fischer, declared: "I think it's hardly surprising that
there are some initial apparent violations of the ceasefire
in a matter as complex as this. We are still hopeful and
become increasingly optimistic that the ceasefire will, in
fact, take hold."
Referring to Haddad's Christian forces, the State
Department spokesman noted that attacks from these
forces would be "a clear violation of the ceasefire .
(which). is understood by everyone involved."
At the same time, Fischer explained that Israeli
overflights of Lebanon "are not strictly speaking armed
attacks" and therefore are not covered by the ceasefire ar-
MAJ. H ADD AD, speaking in an interview on Radio
Israel, defied the Fischer assessment of his Christian
forces operations. "If they (the PLO) will shoot, I will re-
taliate, and I am going to retaliate hard."
Haddad's statement came in the wake of the an-
nouncement by Habib that he had arranged a ceasefire
after 15 days of open warfare between Israel and the PLO
forces in southern Lebanon. But Israeli officials noted
Sunday that the ceasefire agreement clearly includes a
clause applying to the Christian forces' activities. And
they made no comment about the PLO charges that
Israel's overflights are a violation of the ceasefire.
In an interview on ABC's "Issues and Answers"
Sunday, Arafat repeated what he had said the day before
at a Beirut news conference: "I will consider that flying
over our forces is an attempt to photograph our positions,
and I will consider this a violation of the ceasefire."
At the same time, he warned that the ceasefire does
not include PLO operations on the West Bank and in
Gaza. "According to the United Nations charter we
have the right to resist" occupying 'forces in Palestine, he

The Ceasefire Charade;
What Israel Sacrificed
The ceasefire in Lebanon arranged by U.S. envoy
: Philip Habib is a temporary expedient. Those in W ashing-
: ton who think otherwise, who believe that the ceasefire is
I the beginning of some new and important era between
: Israel and the Arabs, don't know anything about today's
: Middle East.
The question is not whether the shooting will begin
: again, but when. Better than anyone else, the Israelis
: know that they have in fact hurt the PLO military force in
: Lebanon, which is now using the ceasefire respite to re
I group and rearm. That is why Israel's air force has con-
tinued its overflights of Beirut. They don't want to be
: caught napping; they want to know when the PLO will be
| at it again.
This does not mean that the Habib shuttle has not
accomplished a number of things. It has unfortunately,
not many of them very good for Israel.
To begin with, the U.S. charade in the form of the
Reagan Administration's vow never to deal with Yasir
Arafat's Palestinians except under certain circumstances
favorable to Israel's ultimate security has proven to be
just that a charade. (See our report this week, Page 1-
A.) There have in fact been direct if covert U.S. PLO ne-
gotiations for a long time now, both in the Carter Ad-
ministration and since.
A second accomplishment of the Habib shuttle was
Israel's acceding to a ceasefire with the PLO as a party to
the agreement. Even if only indirectly, this spells the end
of the vow in Jerusalem never to deal with the PLO under
any circumstances a vow that may be consigned now to
the same rubbish heap of historical memorabilia as the
Reagan Administration's charade with respect to this
same issue.
Third, and most regrettably, comes the realization
that not all the Israeli retaliation in the world, given its
superior force and its superior military operations and its
unquestionable courage, will in the end stymie the Pales-
tinian movement. In the end, the Palestinian movement is
an entity with which Israel will have to come to terms if it

Thus far, the western world, blinded by its greed for $

8 does not see this. Nor does it see the Middle East in larger 8
terms: Iraq, a Muscovite client: Syria, ditto: Saudi &

The decision "is not sending a

cularly responsibility on Israel."
the spokesman said.
In that context. Romburg said
that the U.S. would have to wait
and see what, if any. resolution
was presented to the United Na-
tions Security Council on the
situation in Lebanon before de-
ciding on a position. "We would
oppose any call for sanctions
against Israel or an unbalanced
resolution that sought to single
out only one side," Romburg
HE SAID the U.S. is looking
lor a ceasefire across the Israeli iMirder and "ultimately
a more permanent resolution of
the problem." He noted that U.S.
serial envoy Philip I labib was in
Jerusalem seeking Israeli agree-
ment to a ceasefire.

i In --c parties are undertaking this
task without necessarily being
asked to do so by the U.S.
He refused to name any of
these parties, although a State
Department source identified one
of them as United Nations Sec-
retary General Kurt Waldheim.
Rombcrg reiterated the U.S.
position that the U.S. will not ne-
gotiate or have any other con-
tacts with the PLO until the PLO
recognizes Israel's right to exist
and accepts UN Security Council
Resolutions 242 and 338.
Romburge denied that Rea-
gan's decision was made in return
lor support by the other six
participants at the economic
summit for positions the Reagan
Administration sought. He said
Hk' decision was made after Rea-
gan met with his own advisers in
Ottawa where he was meeting
with leaders of the industrialized
democracies. The U.S. did. how-
ever, go along with a statement
issued at the summit and read by
Prime Minister Pierre Elliott
Trudeau of Canada, the host of
the conference. It said, in part:
"WE ARE deeply distressed
by the scale of destruction, par-
ticularly in Lebanon, and the
heavy civilian loss of life on both
mi We cull on all states and
parties lo exercise restraint and
in pail it ul.ii to avoid retaliation
which only results in escalation
and lo forego acts which could
lead in the current lense situation
in the area lo further bloodshed
and war.
"We are particularly concerned
in this respect by the tragic fate
of the Lebanese people. We sup-
port the efforts now in progress
to permit Lebanon to achieve a
genuine national reconciliation,
internal security and peace with
its neighbors."
While House Counselor Edwin
Metse III said in Ottawa, "The
I'm iiieni doesn't want in do
anything about the tuning of his

cision to continue the t'ltis em-
bargo appears to have been sup-
ported by top Administration of-
ficials, including Defense Sec-
retary Casper Weinberger and

whom Reagan was in telephone

National Security Adviser
Richard Allen. A suspension of
arms deliveries to Israel was ad-

lican Senators.

Cabinet Thought Hard About Ceasefire
- Immediately after Presi-
dent Reagan's decision to
halt the shipment of 10 F16
jet fighters to Israel, the
Cabinet met in special ses-
sion for almost six hours to
consider the U.S. call for a
ceasefire in Lebanon. No
statement was issued.
Warfare innlinued over Ihe
Israeli-Lebanon border with Pal-
estinian terrorists firing rocket
and artillery shells at Israeli
towns and the Israel Air Force

heavy rocket and artillery fire

resident of Nahariya was injured
by a shell burst at noon, and a
woman was treated in a hospital
for shock. No other casualties
were reported, but the shelling
touched off brushfires and
damaged crops in Upper Galilee.

That move was linked here to the

had more children than we expected, and our staff rose to the occasion. We were
extremely fortunate to have Nofi Reschef, an official representative of the
Israeli scouting movement, with us for the eight-week session. She added a
dimension to the Camp that could not be duplicated in any other way."
James B. Baer, President of the Federation said, "this was a major under-
taking for us. We are extremely pleased that it was so successful. Ipersonally
look forward to an even larger and more successful camp next summer. Camp
Maccabee is now an established South County Jewish institution."

I expect that will happen."
Speaking on the day after Britain
assumed the six-month presi-
dency of the EEC Hurd added
that the 10-member countries
would pursue the EEC peace in-
itiative "without respite."
Besides awaiting the outcome
of the Israeli elections, it would
await the evolution of the Reagan
Administration's Middle East
policy, and make the EEC's
policy "complementary" to that
of the U.S. U.S. policy was "not

Argentina Releases
'Disappeared' Prisoner
A 25 year-old Argentine
Jew for whom the Anti-
Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith repeatedly
interceded with Argentin-
ian authorities has been re-
leased from an Argentine
prison after being detained
more than five years with-
out charge.
Alberto Schprejer is now in Is-
rael, one of five countries which
offered to accept him, Rabbi
Morton M. Rosenthal, director of
the League's Latin American
Affairs Department, said.
Rabbi Rosenthal said that
Schprejer's cousin, Marina Kap-
lan of New Orleans, phoned
ADL on June 16 to say he had
just arrived in Israel and ex-
pressed "appreciation" to the
ADL for "never giving up."
SCHPREJER IS one of 1,200
Argentine citizens, both Chris-
tian and Jewish, who are
prisoners or who have disap-
peared there, for whom the
ADL has interceded as part of its
Argentine Prisoner Project.
The rabbi said Schprejer, who
was never given a trial or a
reason for his arrest in January,
1976, while a high school student,
was shunted among five prisons,
the last one the Rawson
maximum security detention
center in the south of Argentina.
During his confinement, Sch-
prejer tried unsuccessfully on
four occasions to obtain permis-
sion to leave Argentina, a con-
stitutional right for Argentine
prisoners held without charges.
In April, he was finally granted
(he option to leave Argentina,
but was not released from prison
because officials claimed they
had lost his papers, Rabbi Rosen-
thal said. Schprejer had long be-
fore been granted visas by the
United States, France, Britain
and Sweden, as well as Israel.
ON THE contentious issue of
whether Carrington would meet
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization Chairman Yasir Ara-
fat, Hurd said emphatically that
no meeting was planned. How-
ever, it remained a possibility
within the framework of the
Euro-Arab dialogue later m the
Looking forward to what Hurd
termed "close and frank rela-
tions" with Israel, he suggested
f "It should have been possible
I without yielding anything of
I substance for Israel to have
' welcomed the Venice declaration,
and at the same time underlining
the principle of Israel's right to
exist," he said.
Although not immediately
evident from Hurd's remarks,
there are also reports here that
Carrington, in the wake of the Is-
raeli elections, now gives himself
little chance of making a major
contribution to the Middle East
peace process during his presi-
dency of the Council of Ministers.

For many years my husband and I
thought about traveling to the Holy
Land. Although we were versed in the
history of this land, our greatest ex-
pectations were exceeded by what we
Gene and I departed from Miami and
arrived in Israel on Saturday evening
May 23, 1981. Ascending the Judean
mountains to Jerusalem, the "eternal
city" and the home of our three great
religions, is a truly emotional experience.
While walking the dirt roads of this
walled ancient city, we immediately
comprehended why this city is so holy
to all our major religionsand why
Jerusalem has been the site of some of
history's greatest conflicts. We
recognized that this was not going to
be another tourthis would be a
unique experience.
Presented is a pictorial overview of a recent
visit by Senator Paula Hawkins to the
modern state of Israel the birthplace of
the two major religions of the Western world.
Senator Hawkins and her husband Gene had
the opportunity to visit Israel and to see the
miracle of a modern state born out of barren
rock and desert sand a country whose
technological advances are among the most
sophisticated in the world, whose unique ed-
ucational system integrates both Eastern
and Western cultures, and whose military
capabilities form a vital link in America's
global geopolitical strategy.
We appreciate and thank Senator Hawkins
and her husband Gene for sharing this excit-
ing experience with us.

Sunday, May 24,1981
Our first visit was to Yad Vashem, the memorial
to the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust.
This holy place serves as a constant reminder to
the world of the horrors of Nazism and the
genocide committed against the European Jews.
This must never happen again. We walked
through the museum which pictorially shows the
rise of Nazism and the cruelties that were inflicted
on a people only because they were Jews. We
viewed the impressive monuments to the heroes
of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising and then partici-
pated in a ceremony commemorating the death of
the Six Million.
Next we went to Bethlehem, where we visited the
Church of the Nativity the holy place where
Jesus was bom. While here, we witnessed a
confirmation ceremony and then chatted with the
parents, whose family had lived near Bethlehem
for hundreds of years. Our next stop was to visit
the Mormon garden on the Mount of Olives. Here
we saw the site where the Mormon missionary
Orson Hyde dedicated the land to the Jews; pro-
claimed, in 1841, the rebirth of the State of Israel;
and beckoned Jews to return from all over the
world to restore this historic land and form a
modern state. This was particularly meaningful
since Gene and I are Mormons.
After lunch we met with Jerusalem's legendary
mayor Teddy Kollek. 1 asked Mayor Kollek why,
in Jerusalem, where there are so many potentially

hostile groups living side by side, there is no
visible street crime. He responded that the in-
tegrity of the neighborhood and the importance of
the family unit are two values held deeply by all
groups. It is these values that prevent crime.
What a great lesson for us in the United States
who are plagued with an increasing crime rate!
At 4:00 we met with David Ephrati in the Minis-
try of Foreign Affairs; he handles relations with
all the churches. He explained the ongoing
dialogue with representatives of the Koman
Catholic. Greek Orthodox, and Moslem religions
regarding the importance of preserving the
unique status of the religious shrines throughout
the State of Israel. I was most impressed with
safeguards that allow each religion to function
freely, without any government interference,
while allowing each to respect the rights of others.
We met with Yitzhak Shamir, the Minister of
Foreign Affairs, who gave us a much greater
comprehension of the fragility of the existing
"peace" in the Middle East.
Mr. Shamir warned against allowing sophisti-
cated arms to fall into the hands of potentially
hostile or unstable neighbors. This would endan-

ger not only the security of Israel, but would also
compromise America's military technology and
jeopardize the safety of American pilots and sol-
diers. He showed us the geographic proximity of
Saudi Arabia and Israel and emphasized that
those lethal weapons would have no other even-
tual use but against Israel. Mr. Shamir's words
were sobering. He reminded us not only of the
most recent declaration of the Saudi leaders, de-
claring a Holy War against Israel, but also of the
Saudi's participation in at least three previous
wars against Israel.
That evening, we met with the current leader of
the Labor Party, Shimon Peres. He stated that,
even though there are great differences between
Mr. Ik-gin and himself, they share a common
ground concerning defense aiid adherence to the
belief that Israel and the United States share a
common position.

Monday, May 25,1981
We began the day by meeting with Prime Minis-1
ter Menachem Begin. I was impressed by his keen!
insight into Israel's relations with her Arabl
neighbors, his sincere desire for peace and hisrec I
ognition of the Soviets as the most serious threat I
to peace and stability in the Middle East and Perl
sian Gulf regions. He emphasized the disaster!
that would result if sophisticated American
weapons were sold to unstable Arab states who]
neither participate in the p-ace process nor sup. I
port American foreign policy.
Later in the morning, we met with Mrs. Tamarl
Eshel, a member of the Knesset (the Israeli Par. [
Lament). She noted that Israel is the only demo I
cratic state in the Middle East. She. a duly 1
elected member of the Knesset, serves with other
duly elected members including other women,
Arabs, Bedouins and Druze members. We dis-1
cussed the sociological problems caused by the
large number of Jewish refugees absorbed from
Arab countries refugees who, when they enter
Israel, for the first time enter the twentieth
century refugees with large families and many |
young children who have to be educated and (
integrated into a modern western society.
Gene and I spent the rest of the morning at the |
"new" Hadassah Hospital, a modem, world-
renowned medical center. Some of the major ad-
vances in medicine have been developed by
members of the staff of this hospital which treat
Jew and Arab alike. One of the doctors explained
to me that, before 1947, Arabs from all over the
Middle East came to Hadassah for advanced i

medical treatment; and. even now, non-Jerus^ern
Moslem and Arabs come there for treatment:m
their most serious medical problems Witn pea
in the Middle East, this most certainly wouia
the regional medical center improving neannw

Iifur hinch at the hospital and meeting with the
loedical staff, we visited Jerusalem's religious
larines, now accessible to all in a unified city. Je-
Irasalem is a holy city of the western world's three
Iwior religions Judaism, Christianity and
Islam- I was inspired to stand at the Western

Twday, May 26.1981
I We left for the north via the Jordan Valley where
In stopped at Kibbutz Gilgal, located three miles
Ifrom the Jordanian border, composed of approxi-
[mately eighty members, both Christian and Jew,
from all parts of the world. This kibbutz has a
I wry large number of children. The older children
I expressed their concerns about security and their
I fear of this territory's being returned to the Arabs
I-which would mean that they would have to
[leave their home. They reminded (iene and me
I that Jews were not allowed to live in occupied Je-
Irusalem or the Weat Bank while it was illegally oc-
loipied by Jordan from 1948 to 1967. The younger
(children showed me the bomb shelters in which
1 they sleep every night of their lives. We inspected
I the vineyards and were amazed to see barren rock
turned into fertile soil and grapes growing on
this soil. This ability of these pioneers to make
productive use of the land is a major reason for
the success of the State of Israel.
I We continued our journey to Lake Tiberias, the
Sea of Galilee, where Christ's ministry began and
where he performed many of his miracles. The
I historical significance of this area is as important
las its present day significance. Now a heavily
I fished sea surrounded by flourishing agricultural
[cimimunuii's. it supplies 80 percent of Israel's

i\|Mii.iu<\ The serenity that now exists must be
DM a shurp contrast to those times of peril.
I We then ascended the Golan Heights to visit Kib-
butz Kfar Haruv. Of the 110 member population,
one-third are American and most of these are
I American military veterans. Lenny Spector, who
conducted our tour, is from Bayonne, New Jersey.
He impressed upon us the importance of the Is-
raeli presence in the Golan Heights to protect the
heartlands of Israel. He reminded us that, during
the 1973 Yom Kippur War, the Syrians would
have overrun and destroyed Israel had it not been
for the Israeli chain of settlements in the Golan
Heights. As he was talking, I gazed from the
barren rock-strewn countryside to the kibbutz's
1,000 acres of land under cultivation and shared
the pride these people feel. From these heights, I
could see how easily the Syrians could shell the
region from which we had just come the vul-
nerable farms around the Sea of Galilee. I fully
understood the peril to Israel and her need to re-
tain these lands and settlements which serve as
her first line of defense against a repeat of Syrian
Wednesday, May 27,1981
We arose early in the morning and again drove
north towards the Lebanese border stopping at
Metulla to visit a gateway in the "Good Fence"
- a unique international boundary between
Israel and Lebanon where the beleaguered
Lebanese-Christians are able to enter Israel for
cial and medical aid. It is a site where one can
view what is left of the once beautiful country of
Lebanon now war-torn, occupied by Syria and
terrorized by the PLO. I was shocked to learn of
the genocide being practiced by Moslems against
Christians and to learn that, with the excep-
tion of Israel, the world silently watches, doing
nothing. Israel is the only country actively op-
posing the genocide of this once vibrant
Lebanese-Christian community. The Arab claim
that Jew and Moslem can live together in peace in
a secular state of Palestine is put to the test in
Lebanon. It fails that test! Israel's aiding the
Lebanese-Christians to survive is proof of Israel's
On this up-beat note, we left the "Good Fence"
and drove to the holy Jewish city of Sfad, a
quaint town where scholars intermingle with
artists and tourists visiting Jewish holy places. It
was in Sfad that I met Sara Zefira, the head of the
Israel Red Magen David, an organization with
much meaning for me since I serve as its United
States National Co-Chairman. Sara showed me a
new ambulance that had just been delivered there
and told me of the fine work being done by our or-
ganization. I resolved at that time to continue
even more strongly my fight to force the Interna-
tional Red Cross to recognize the Red Star of
David as an official symbol just as it does the Red
Cross, the Iranian Red Lion and Sun, and the
Moslem Red Crescent to include the Red
Magen David Adorn as a member of the interna-
tional organization of mercy and to allow
official affiliation of the American and Israeli
sister organizations.
We returned to Tel Aviv and had a most enjoy-
able dinner with Mordecai Zippori, the Deputy
Minister of Defense and his lovely wife Tova. I
had looked forward to meeting this couple who
are cousins of good friends of mine in South Flor-
ida, Stan and Karen Margulies. We had a
fascinating interchange of ideas regarding Amer-
ica's and Israels strategic and military needs.
Zippori expressed to me in the strongest military

terms how threatening the sale of sophisticated
weaponry such as the enhanced F-15's and

then added a much more startling thought how
could we Americans allow our most secret
military technology to be given a regime already
unstable? There was very little question in his
mind that the secrets of our AWACS and F-15's
would soon fall into Russian hands if given to the
Saudis, just as our F-14 airplane technology and
our Harpoon and Lance missile secrets had fallen
into Russian hands soon after being given to
Iran; and that President Carter planned to deliver
AWACS to Iran just before the fall of the Shah
AWACS that would now be in the hands of Aya-
tollah Khomeni and the Russians. He reminded
me that many of the same people who testified
before the Senate that this could never happen in
Iran were now coming forth with similar
testimony about Saudi Arabia. I restated my
active opposition to such a sale. We must leam
from our mistakes, not repeat them.
Thursday, May 28, 1981
Early :he next morning, we arrived in Beersheva,
the capital of the Negev. In the early 60's, Beer-
sheva was nothing more than a Bedouin trading
post; it is now the fourth largest city in Israel. I
was able to see again how barren and arid desert
had been transformed into productive, agricultur-
al soil. If what has been done here could be done
in other parts of the world, what benefits would
derive to underdeveloped nations, especially in
alleviating world hunger.
While in Beersheva, we visited the Ben Gurion
University, the youngest and among the most in-
novative of Israel's universities. Ben Gurion U.
concentrates its efforts in several areas. Most
interesting to me were agriculture, irrigation and
health care. The medical school provides com-
plete modern medical care to the large Bedouin
community of the Negev, a community which
prior to 1970 received almost none. In discussion
with students and faculty, I learned another im-
portant facet of Israeli life everyone who serves
on the faculty teaches and everyone who teaches
serves. The social and economic implications of
this to me were staggering. This means that each
Israeli citizen, male and female, after completing
mandatory military service, spends an average
one month a year on active military duty.
Gene and I examined other divisions of the Uni-
versity where applied research for specific prob-
lems is being performed. As a member of the
Senate Committee on Agriculture and as senator
from Florida, where agriculture is a major in-
dustry, the projects that centered on special uses
and conservation of water, new agricultural ap-
proaches and the unorthodox use of presently
grown crops were of special interest to me. We
visited four desert settlements where brackish
water, never before used in agriculture, is now
being used to grow cotton, com and wheat. I dis-
cussed the possible applications of this method of
agriculture for use in Florida. It seems to me that,
if brackish warm water could be used in our state,
we might be able to avoid the problems of un-
timely freezes and resulting crop loss. I have
asked Dr. Pasternak to provide additional in-
formation and to testify before the Senate Com-
mittee on Agriculture on these innovative
I was excited to meet with Dr. Mizrachi, who ex-
plained how his genetic research on tomatoes has
produced a commercially acceptable product with
a six week shelf life. I asked if this could be
feasibly done in Florida where tomato farming is
an important part of our agriculture industry. He
thought that his research could be useful in Flor-
ida and agreed to testify before the Senate on this
subject. I feel that, with the possible benefits to
residents and farmers in Florida, this is well
worth looking into. Because ot Florida's water
problems, especially shortages, I was extremely
interested in the Israeli system of drip irrigation
presently being used in the Negev to grow fruits
and vegetables. Their moisturized hot houses
allow for the inexpensive growth of large varieties
with very little usage of water and with extremely
high yield per acre. This is another area having
important implications for Florida and will be
carefully followed.
Of interest for Florida also were projects of de-
salinization, the use of salt water for commercial
growth of ornamental plants, and techniques for
energy production from solar resources. I was
amazed to leam that there were joint projects be-
tween Ben Gurion University and Egyptian
academic centers that are already benefitting the
populations of North Africa. One of these in-
volves research on animal health care at the Isan
Center for Comparative Medicine, the veterinary
center at the university, dedicated by Floridians,
Barbara and Jerry Isan. Before leaving the Uni-
versity, I had lunch with President Shlomo Gazit,
the former head of Israeli intelligence and Vice
President Israel Ben Amitai, former chief of Is-
raeli artillery. We discussed the strategic impor-
tance ot the Negev and the Sinai They explained
to me the strategic and economic sacrifice Israel
had made by returning to Egypt the Sinai with its
important military bases and its large oil supply
at a cost to Israel of over eight billion dollars!
They felt that Prime Minister Begin was offering
everything possible for the sake of peace. I sug-
gested that the military bases in the Sinai, the

It seems to me that there is a terrible sense of
unreality about the outcry over Israel's
attack on the Iraqi nuclear facility at Tuwa-
itha. Rarely does a commentator mention the
explicit threat made by Saddam Hussein, the
President of Iraq, to use weapons supplied
by this reactor against Israel. Rarely does
anyone mention the destabilizing effect a
nuclear weapon would have in the hands of
Hussein, or any of a number of other Mideast
Looked at realistically, the Israeli attack has
to be seen as stabilizing not upsetting. It is
ironic that those who call for having all
nuclear weapons destroyed should object to'
the destruction of this nuclear device,
potentially in the possession of someone
engaged in a holy war of elimination against
the people of Israel.
But, of course, Mr. President, the Israeli
attack is not viewed realistically. It is viewed
through the prism of the United Nations, an
organization which sometimes appears de-
dicated to clouding the real world in a fog of
rhetorical confusion. The United Nations is,
to put it mildly, irresponsible. It has no real
constituency, no economic base, no founding
in the real world. It is largely a paper organi-
zation, and so it can engage in a paper battle.
Nations such as Israel can pay some at-
tention to the U.N. so long as it does not
threaten Israel's real interests. The United
States is the same way. The only difference
seems to me to be that Israel has a clearer
sense of its own interests than the United
States has demonstrated in recent years."

person does not represent
humanity when he or she is made
to be every man or woman. Here
is what Levin said was dropped
from the "Diary:"
"Who had made us Jews dif-
ferent from all other people? Who
has allowed us to suffer so
terribly up till now? It is God
who has made us as we are, but it
will be God. too, who will raise us
up again. If we bear all this suf-
fering and if there are still Jews
left, when it is over, then Jews,
instead of being doomed, will be
held up as an example. Who
knows, it might even be our reli-
gion from which the world and all
people learn good, and for that
reason and that reason only do
we have to suffer now. We can

for that matter, we will always

the play with Anne saying:
'We're not the only people that
have had to suffer. There have
always been people that have had

sometimes another."
WHILE THE fight over Anne
Frank dominated Levin's last
three decades, it was part of his
long struggle against the literary
establishment, much of it Jewish
und assimilationist, who Levin
believed were opposed to writers
who wrote about Jews.
Levin was a writer who always
sought literary recognition but he
believes he has denied this by the
literary establishment. True, he
was paranoic, but as Freud or
was it Henry Kissinger pointed
out, even paranoics have
enemies. Levin also tried to
educate in his books. He wrote
about the Holocaust, he wrote
about Israel both about the pre-
State days and the Jewish State,
he brought the plight of the Fal-
ashus to world attention.
Levin is best known for his
best seller, "Compulsion" and his
early work "The Old Bunch" is
considered a classic of American
Jewish literature. Yet he always
believed that once the prejudice

Jewish writers, will get the

Israel Denies Promise
To U.S. About Iraq Raid
Israel denied that it has given
any commitment to the United
States beyond the joint state-
ment issued by Prime Minister
Menachem Begin and U.S. State
Department Counsellor Robert
McFariane that the misunder-
standing'' between the two
countries over Israel's June 7 air
attack on Iraq's nuclear reactor
had been clarified."'
A statement released by the
Prime Minister's Office spe-
cifically denied a report in
the Washington Pott that Israel
had given an oral promise to take
into account American interests
before using American-supplied
weapons in the future. The U.S.
suspended delivery of four F 16
jet fighters to Israel in the wake
of the Iraqi raid on which Ameri-
can-made aircraft were employed.
reporters by McFariane, with
Begin standing by, said: "The
governments of the United
States and Israel have had ex-
tensive discussions concerning
the Israeli operation against the
atomic reactor near Baghdad.
The discussions have been
conducted with the candor and
friendship that is cutomary be-
tween friends and allies. The
governments of the two countries
! declare that any misunderstand-
ing which might hnve arisen in
the wake of the aforementioned
operation have been clarified to
the satisfaction of both sides."
Israeli officials said they
regarded the statement, drafted
at the second of two meetings be-
tween Begin and McFariane, as s
significant diplomatic success for
Israel. They said they expected it
to open the way for the Reagan
Administration to report to Con-
gress that the "clarification"

sion of deliveries of the F-16.
