U. S. De-Escalating Support to Israel;
Fears Losing Jordan, Saudi Arabia
By MILTON FRIEDMAN
(Copyright. 1967, JTA, Inc.)
WASHINGTON — Despite the
threat to Israel from leftist Arabs
armed with the same types of wea-
pons Russia supplies to North
Vietnam, American policy-makers
are de-escalating American com-
mitments to Israel.
The United States does not want
to find itself linked with Israel's
defebse. This is not because of
anti-Jewish prejudice or dislike of
Israel. The reasons are more subtle
and ensue from fears that United
States backing of Israel would
undermine the shaky, "pro-west-
ern" Arab kingdoms of Jordan and
The U. S. policy makers private-
ly reassure Israel, in increasingly
vague terms, of support against
aggression. But the 19th anniver-
sary of Israel's independence was
observed in Washington without a
single strong reassurance from any
important spokesman for the exe-
cutive department of the govern-
Just at the time that Syrian ter-
rorist provocations escalated, offi-
cial Washington grew cautious and
detached. The American Ambassa-
dor to Israel was ordered to boy-
cott the Israeli Independence Day
parade in Jerusalem. This was cri-
ticized in congress on grounds that
it indicated to the Arabs that the
United States wavered in its com-
mitment to the permanency of
Officials agree that the Syrians
are guilty of a palter of border
outrages but do not deem these
adequate to justify Israeli counter-
United States diplomats sought
to placate Arab positions when
Lebanon took exception to a long-
scheduled goodwill visit by the
United States Sixth Fleet to Bei-
rut. The Arab complaints were
based on a reported assertion by
Israel's Prime Minister Levi Esh-
kol that he had assurances that
the fleet might protect Israel.
United States officials denied that
such promises were made. Never-
theless. "pro-western" Lebanon
cancelled the fleet visit.
Now, when Egypt unilaterally
demanded withdrawal of t h e
United Nations Emergency Forces
from the Egyptian-Israel border,
the State Department took sharp
exception. The Department valued
the ten-year peace-keeping role of
UNEF. It had long been the de-
partment's position that UNEF
should be expanded rather than
reduced. Washington saw the UN
as an agency to restrain Arab-
Israel tensions without the direct
intervention of the United States.
The administration may now
Move to increase and expedite the
shipment of military equipment to
Israel, and many other important
items of military hardware. An
important factor in Israel's de-
fense is the American "Hawk"
ground-to-air missile that was sup-
plied some time ago. Israeli sol-
diers have been trained in the
United States to operate the anti-
aircraft missile system.
The juncture may come where
Washington must choose whether
the democratic state of Israel
should be backed in the manner
that America supports other gov-
ernments threatened by Commun-
ism. But the State Department
hopes this will never occur be-
cause of its illusion of "pro-west-
ern" Arab friendship.
