U.S. Becomes Aware of Arab PLO ArroganceiTHE

BY MILTON FRIEDMAN

(Copyright. 1966, JTA, Inc.)

WASHINGTON — American pol-
icy-makers are responding to the
changing world scene with a grow-
ing awareness of the mutuality of
American-Israel defense interests.

The United States is doing more

Hussein of Jordan.
American strategists have revised
their thinking of Israel's needs.
In this context, Israel was prov-
ided with jet bombers capable of
striking at Syrian and Egyptian
bases of agression. Washington to-
day sees Israel as a reliable and
stable friend on the vortex of reg-
ional turbulence.
The United States for years ig-
nored. Israel's complaints that Am-
erican surplus food - gifts were
feeding the soldiers of the "Pal-
estine Liberation Army" and other
Arab terrorist formations. But when
the head of the "Liberation" forces,
Ahmed Shukairy, announced that
these same elements would send
men to Viet Nam to fight the "Am-
erican . imperialists,".. Washington
quickly reacted. The U.S. Govern-
ment asked the United Nations to
stop giving food rations to all Arab
refugees receiving guerilla warfare
training in Egypt and Syria.
A single speech by Shukairy on

Viet Nam accomplished more to
bring down the tent on his head
than did all the protests of Israel.

The United States does not reg-
ard the "Palestine Liberation
Army" as a force of any signifi-
cance. But Washington is especially
sensitive to announcements that
Arabs from this group are to be
armed and trained by Communist
China and enlisted in the Viet
Cong.
Administration thinking has been
outlined by Vice-President Hubert
H. Huniphrey in an unusually
frank address at the convention of
the American Jewish Press Assoc-
iation.
The Vice-President reported that
"there is a militant type of Com-
munist action at work in the Mid-
dle East much of it directed from
Peking . . . that seeks to conquer
. . .- that uses the new techniques
of the wars of liberation."
Evaluating the Arab attempts to
foment a "liberation war" against
Israel, Humphrey said the Peking
role was "not unrelated to some of
the problems we face and that the
people of South Viet Nam face in
southeast Asia."
He said "there are militant
forces at work in the Middle East"
that seek to expand, that seek to
undermine. Some of these militant
forces of today do not even come
from the Middle East; they come
from the Far East. So let us be on
guard."
Humphrey revealed that a reas-
on the United States recently sold I
tanks and jet bombers to Israel
was "because here are aggressive
forces at work and free people
must be able to defend them-
selves."
