Israel Faces Modern Warfare Menace
She May Have to Produce Her Own


(Copyright 1968, JTA Inc.)

When it comes to questions of
the impact of science and tech-
nology on national defense, there
are few voices more authoritative
in Israel than that of Prof. David
Ernest Bergman, former chairman
of the Israel Atomic Energy Com-
mission and now head of the
country's Standards Institute. A
man not given to public pro-
nouncements in his previous post,
Prof. Bergman now sometimes
makes speeches discussing the re-
planning and security.
"Israel's research, develop-
ment and industrialization policy
in the next decade must have two
aims: intensification of produc-
tion and maximum self-suffic-
iency in every field vital to our
future. Past years have repeatedly
shown us how dangerous it is to
depend on the good graces of
others," Prof. Bergman said.
With the shock of the French
embargo on Mirage jets still not
forgotten, Israelis understood very
well the reference. The speaker
stressed that modern warfare is
electronic warfare - and therefore
Israel must expand urgently even
further her electronic research
and production facilities.
"The Arabs can afford to lose
wars with Israel and get ready
for the next round. Israel must
win in every round: There will
be no next round for her if she
loses one," he said. Though he
expressed hope that the Arabs
will not be so foolish as to use
non-conventional weapons in fu-
ture conflicts, Egypt's use of
poisonous gas in Yemen obliges
Israel to take such a possibility
into account, he said. The nation
must have enough gas masks,
gas - proof garments and gas-
proof air-raid shelters, Dr. Berg-
man warned.
He pointed out that the impera-
tives of survival compel Israel to
invest in defense-oriented projects
which even bigger and stronger

nations find economically unjusti-
fied, and therefore rely on the
major powers. If necessary, Israel
will have to build her own planes,
tanks and rockets, he said._
Yet, against the imperatives of
military preparedness, Israel must
take into account the hard reali-
ties of her economic situation and
the limited scope of her material
resources. This inherent conflict
is leading many in this country to
seek ways to turn the weaknesses
into a source of strength. In simple
terms, this argument runs, if it
is uneconomical for Israel to man-
ufacture defense-related products
for her own relatively limited
needs, she must find foreign mar-
kets to make production in eco-
nomically justified quantities.
It is no secret that Israel's de-
fense industries—mostly owned or
controlled by the ministry of de-
fense—have been exporting small
arms, ammunitions and other
weapons to a number of countries,
some of them industrially more
advanced than Israel. While pro-
duction and export figures are not
being disclosed, the latest edition
of the "Government Yearbook"
does reveal that the number of
employes in military industries
has increased by 40 per cent lately.
Yet, when one thinks of foreign
markets, it need not primarily be
for guns and bullets.
Israel Aircraft Industries,
founded some years ago by Al
Schwimmer of California, pri-
marily to serve Israel's then
fledging air force is now be-
coming one of the nation's im-
portant foreign currency earn-
ers. Its facilities provide main-

Jackier Reports on Progressive
Bar-Ilan Programs; Asks Detroit
Jewry's Aid for Israel University

In a report on most recent
achievements at Bar-Ilan Univer-
sity, Joseph Jackier, chairman of
the committee that is planning the
annual dinner of Detroit's support-
ers of the __university, announced
that an IBM electronic computer
will begin operation at the uni-
versity, in Ramat Gan, Israel,
next year.
Jackier urged community-wide
support of the university and ex-
pressed hope for a very large at-
tendance at the dinner in Cobo
Hall, Dec. 4. In his report, he
"Construction is now under way
of the building which is to house
the computer and the department
of mathematics. It is expected to
be completed before the summer
when the computer will arrive in
"This building will be construct-
ed at a cost of 2,500,000 Israeli
-pounds ($725,000), and the com-





puter will cost an additional 3,500,-
000 Israeli pounds ($1,015,000).
The Israeli government will join
in one-third of the cost of the
building and the remainder will
be loaned to Bar-Ilan for a three-
year period. Part of the cost will
be covered by contributors abroad.
"The computer, the most mod-
ern and up-to-date available and
a rarity in Israel, will be used by
the department of mathematics
and will also be of service to the
other departments."
Jackier also stated in his report:
"The school of social work at
Bar-Ilan University has put into
effect a new program of pro-
fessional training in the . field for
its entire third-year student body
of 30 men and women. It is plan-
ned that in the 10 localities where
the professional training course
will be implemented, the students
will not only pursue their own
studies, but will assist in the es-
tablishment of new methods of
"The program provides for a
constant follow-up of the students'
activities by an instructor who
will help them to organize the new
social group work units. The pro-
ject has been undertaken in re-
sponse to repeated requests from
numerous institutions in Israel en-
gaged in social work who have not
been able to introduce the social
group work method themselves,
owing to the shortage of qualified

tenance not only for military
aircraft of several countries but
also service foreign civilian cus-
tomers, including one of the ma-
jor world airlines.
This trend is even more evident
in the field of electronics.. Utiliz-
ing know-how developed for de-
fense needs, government - owned
electronics industries have gone
into partnership with other pro-
ducers to serve also the civilian
market. Some of their products
have become important export
Ever since the possibility has
existed even in a limited fashion,
there has been a certain inarticu-
late reticence in Israel about be-
coming an exporter of tools of
war. This does not fit the image
of a nation which gave The world
the prophecy of turning swords
into plowshares. But Arab hostil-
ity, and the excruciating experi-
ence of being dependent on the
good will of Washington, London
or Paris for instruments of survi-
val, have made the necessity of
such exports, if not better liked at
least more understood and ac-

life use of her weapons than any

made products.

at the International Aeronautics
and Space exhibition here. Accord-
ing to Col. Eliezer Lif, military
attache of the Israel Embassy, the
two small Israel-made aircraft on
display indicated Israel's capabil-
ities in the aviation field and open-
ed Latin American markets to
Israeli planes. He said the display
had aroused considerable interest
in Argentinian aeronautical circles.
