Hadassah Urges U.S. to Continue Arms Aid
NEW YORK (JTA)—A resolu-
tion urging the United States "to
continue to insure Israel's defen-
sive and deterrent strength
through direct arms aid" and at
the same time, to encourage Arab
leaders "to engage in negotiations
leading to a peaceful settlement
with Israel," was adopted Tuesday
at Hadassah's annual mid-winter
"Peace is the only long-range
alternative to the futile and explo-
sive policy being pursued by the
Arab states in the Near East," the
resolution said. It welcomed the
announcement that the U.S. gov-
ernment is "not indifferent to the
destabilization" in the Near East
"resulting from Egypt's massive
purchases of Soviet arms."
"The fact that the United
States has been selling various
items of military equipment to
the government of Israel to help
it meet its defensive and inter-
nal security requirements served
notice to all concerned that the
United States commitment to Is-
rael's security and territorial in-
tegrity will be backed up by
measures necessary to assure
it," the resolution continued.
In another resolution dealing
with the problems of Soviet
Jewry, Hadassah called upon the
