Senator Kennedy charged the
Republican Administration with
"too much rhetoric and too little
leadership" on the Suez Canal
blockade. He will now face the
same complex problem the out-

He pledged "we will never

life must be admired by all
friends of freedom."
He revealed his views on the

In the Kennedy conception,
it "twists reality" to suggest
that Israel is to blame for the
Middle East's turmoil. Sen.
Kennedy said that "even by
