Policy Parley Stresses Israel Arms Need

(Continued from Page 1)
Republic as an example of mis-
use. Egypt, the statement said, de-
pends heavily on U. S. food, but
systematically exacerbates and ex-
ploits tensions throughout the de
veloping world.
Associate J u s ti c e Arthur J.
Goldberg of the United States
Supreme Court proudly reaffirm-
ed his Zionism here, likened it to
that of his illustrious predeces-
sors, Justices Louis D. Brandeis
and Felix Frankfurter, and called
on Americans not to "feel restrain-
ed" in their all-out support for
the "integrity of Israel and its
peaceful development."
Justice Goldberg, addressing the
AIPAC Policy Conference, declar-
ed he did not understand "the rea-
soning of those who question the
support which Americans and
other free peoples, both Jewish
and non-Jewish, extend • to Israel
and its people."
Although he did not name
names and said he did not wish
to "impugn the motives or good
will of anyone," delegates ap-
plied his words to the American
Council for Judaism which had
just concluded its convention in
Washington and had issued the
usual spate of statements con-
demning political activities for
Israel and assailing Zionism and
the concept of Jewish people-
hood.
The keynote address was deliv-
ered to the executive committee
of AIPAC by Rabbi Philip S.
Bernstein of Rochester, N. Y., who
was re-elected chairman of
AIPAC. I. L. Kenen, executive
director, also was re-elected.
Rabbi Morris Adler is a member
of the executive committee. .
Both Justice Goldberg and Rab-
bi Bernstein called for the supply-
ing of arms by America to Israel.
Justice Goldberg said that neither
the the U. S. nor Israel welcomes
the arms race and that both .seek
peace, but "the cause of peace
. . . will not be served by encour-
aging those preparing for aggres-
sion or by permitting those whose
security is imperiled to be the
victim of an imbalance of arms."
Israel, he said, deplores along
with America the "wastefulness of
armaments . . . in an area which
loudly calls for social and econo-
mic development." -.
He quoted President Johnson's

statement that "peace is first on
our agenda for the Middle East"
and commented: "Our country has
the obligation and commitment to
keep it there and pursue unceas-
ingly the goal of freedom for
Israel and all the other countries
in the Middle East. And until this
goal is achieved, we must reaffirm
and give fresh vitality and prac-
tical implementation to the decla-
ration of President Kennedy, re-
newed by the present Administra-
tion to intervene against aggres-
sion on the part of any nation in
the area. Our firm resolution is in
the best interests of the United
States and the rest of the free
world as well as the countries
directly involved."
Rabbi Bernstein in his address
declared that America must supply
arms directly to Israel to deter the
Arab states which have reaffirmed
their determination to destroy her.
He cited the intemporate attacks
on Tunisia's President Habib Bour-
guiba's proposals for an eventual
setllement with Israel as evidence
of unabated Arab hatred.

Israel's Desperate Need
for Arms Shown in Survey
LONDON (JTA)—Israel is "des-
perately" in need of more modern
arms, as defense against the mas-
sive military strength of the Arab
states surrounding it, the Institute
for Strategic Studies reported
here after a detailed survey of the
military capabilities of the Arab
states and Israel. The survey re-
ferred specifically to the "over-
kill capability" of the Arab states
that are hostile to Israel.

planes, including five squadrons
of French-built Mystere fighters
and the same number of light-
strike aircraft.
IsLsael's "desperate need" for
more modern arms is shown by
Israel's current interest in obtain-
ing British Hawker, Siddeley and
Buccaneer low-level bombers and
the British Chieftain tanks, the
published report says. The latter
are the most formidable weapons
of their kind in existence.
Senate Report Negative
On U.S. Aid to EaYpt
WASHINGTON (JTA) — T h e
Senate Foreign Relations Corn-
mittee issued its official report
on the Foreign Aid Bill, which it
called for severance of aid to
Egypt.
The committee considered
recommending an "absolute pro-
hibition" on aid to Egypt. But it
finally substituted an expression
of Congress that all aid should be
ended to any country following
"officially incited or unrestrained
mob action" against U. S. embas-
sies and other properties and not
be resumed until the foreign gov-
ernment takes "appropriate meas-
ures" to prevent recurrence.
Anti-Zionist Parley
Condemned by Kenen
WASHINGTON (JTA) — The
American Council for Judaism
concluded its three-day national
conference following the usual at-
tacks on Zionism by its leaders.
These included Clarence L. Cole-
•an, Jr., president of the Coun-
cil; Henry S. Moyer, president of
its philanthropic fund; and Rabbi

Jordan has a well-trained army
of 35,000 men, armed mainly with
American weapons, including the
heavy Patton tank. Its air force
has only about 60 craft, including
one or two squadrons of obsolete,
British-built fighters. Iraq was
shown in the survey to have about
75,000 men in three infantry divi-
sions, a mountain division and
three brigades of special Defense
Ministry troops. Its armor includes
250 Russian T-34 and T-54 tanks.
Its air force has 250 craft, includ-
ing several types of the Russian
MIG fighters.

Syria has an army of 60,000
men, with some 500 tanks, mostly
Russian and between 150 and 200
aircraft. Lebanon has an army of
10,000 men and a small air force
including about 20 British Hunter
and Vampire fighters. According
to the survey, Israel's enemies
could call upon more than 400,000
troops, excluding reserves and
gendarmery reinforcements from
other Arab countries.

Against all this combined Arab
"overkill capability," the survey
concluded, Israel has a wartime
strength of 250,000 men. Its regu-
lar army strength has only three
infantry brigades and one armor-
ed division equipped with medium
tanks, some of them the obsolete
Shermans. Israel's air force is
given as containing only 450

Elmer Berger, executive vice-
president. Coleman, in his ad-
dress, accused Zionist leaders of
agitating for a Jewish "enclave or
sub-society."

I. L. Kenen, executive director
of the American-Israel Public Af-
fairs Committee, charged in a
separate statement that the Coun-
cil "is smearing American Jewish
friends of Israel with misrepre
sentations about • the objectives
and purposes of the Zionist move-
ment." He called the Council "a
miniscule minority of the Ameri-
can Jewish community" which
fought the creation of the State
of Israel since 1943. He said the
Council had been denounced by
every major Jewish organization

Starting with Israel's "most
powerful adversary," the survey
showed that that enemy, Egypt,
has an army of 160,000 men. and
officers, organized in eight divi-
sions, two of them armored, four
of them mobile divisions with tank
support. Egypt's total armored
strength was given as 1,200 tanks,
including 400 Russian T-34's, and
the survey added that the Rus-
sians are now delivering to Egypt
their new T-10 battle tanks.

Egypt also has about 1,500 ar-
tillery and multiple rocket
launchers, and about 250 mobile,
single-stage, ground - to - ground
missies. These include the Al
Zafir, whiCh carries a 1,000-
pound warhead and the Al Ka-
hir with a larger warhead. The
first has a range of 235 miles,
the second a range of 375 Miles.
However, the survey stated,
there is no evidence that Egypt
has as yet developed a modern
guidance system for these wea-
pons, and expressed doubt about
Egypt's ability to pinpoint the
targets.
