Brooinfield. WarnS Mr. and Mrs. Steinberg
to Live in New Jersey
of USSR's Arms
Dangers in M.E.

In his address in which he re-
viewed his experiences as a mem-
ber of the U.S. House of Repre-
sentatives fact-finding mission to
the Middle East after the Six-Day
War, at the meeting Monday night
at the Zionist House, Rep. William
Broomfield warned of increasing
dangers from the Soviet Russian
military build-up and the USSR's
expanion of maritime strength in
the Mediterranean and declared:
"While this massive Soviet
naval build-up in the Mediter-
ranean certainly is a threat to
Israel, it is equally menacing to
the rest of the world. Clearly,
Soviet goals go beyond the eradi-
cation of Israel."
Congressman Broomfield stated:
"They (the Soviet threats) are
aimed at the dominance of the
entire Middle East and control of
60' per cent of the world's oil re-
"They are aimed at the neutral-
ization of Europe and at outflank-
ing NATO's land-based defenses.
In Southern Europe, the long; ex-
posed coastlines of It a l y and
Greece are now much more vul-
nerable to the uncertainties of
naval attack.
"In the long-range future, strong
Soviet presence and increased in-
fluence in the Mediterranean al-
most certainly will affect the fate
of Africa and even the develop.
ment of South America.
"The Soviets already are be-
ginning to realize a return on
their Middle East investment."
Acknowledging the dangers and
uneertainities" that stem from
the Arabs' military build-up and
the resumption of threats to Is-
rael, Rep. Broomfield said "it
seems the least the administra-
tion could have insisted upon in
return for our arms to Jordan.
is some tangible concession to-
ward peace and security." At
the same time he criticized the
failure of the administration to
fulfill the agreement for the sale
of Douglas Skyhawks to Israel.
"It is my view" he said, "that
the United States should provide
Israel with the planes it needs
now. It takes time to train techni-
cians, pilots and mechanics in the
operation of s u c h sophisticated
equipment and that time is being
lost. Further delays can only
jeopardize Israel's deterrent ability
and add to the adready existing
arms imbalance in the Middle
Rep. Broomfield concluded his
address with an expression of con-
cern over the anti-Semitic trends
in Russia and Poland and declared:
"Our government has expressed
itself on the racial policies of the
Union of South Africa and Rho-
desia. It is difficult for me to under-
stand why we cannot do more to let
the rulers of these Communist na-
tions know that the government of
the United States cares what bap-.
pens to the people of Jewish faith
all over the world.
"Russia and other Eastern
European nations are responsive,
within certain limits, to the pres-
sure of world opinion. Last year,
for example, the Russians were
anxious for an agreement permit-
ting a Soviet airline to acquire
landing rights at Kennedy Inter-
national Airport in New York.
"An agreement was made to
exchange landing rights. The Rus-
sians and most other Eastern
European nations remain eager for
an expansion of East-West trade.
"The time has come to em-
phasize in these negotiations that
we are serious and vitally con-
cerned about the treatment of
minorities everywhere."
