and other French transport and
trainer aircraft. Israel's aircraft
industry has adapted rapidly to
make up for the loss of France as
a source of spare parts, officials
Production schedules have been
agreed upon by defense officials
and industry leaders. The latter
are convinced that their plants
can assume the added burdens
without restricting production for
export or slowing down the de-
velopment of prototype commer-
cial and military aircraft of Is-
Leaders of France's aircraft in-
dustry said here Tuesday that they
opposed Gen de Gaulle's embargo
and indicated that the equipment
needed by Israel could be obtained
from sources other than France.
Israeli officials were at Lydda
Airport to greet Joseph Shidlovsky,
head of the Turbomeca Co. of
France, who officially opened Is-
rael's first jet engine manufac-
turing plant at Beth Shemesh, near
Jerusalem Wednesday. He was
accompanied by Bourges Monoury,
former defense minister of France;
Diomede Catroux, former minister
of aviation; and president of the
Franc e-Israel Association; and
Marcel Ghassany, president of the
Fr ench Aircraft Manufacturers
Assocaition, whose company pro-
duces the Matrax missile.
The Beth Shemesh plant, an
affiliate of Turbomeca, will start
production of spare parts and will
eventually produce complete jet en-
gines. Shidlovsky, one of France's
leading industrialists, said he did
not believe de Gaulle would sell
TEL AVIV (JTA)—Israel is well
on the way to self-sufficiency in
the production of arms. It is al-
ready manufacturing spare parts
for its French-built jets, will soon
turn out complete engines, and
will eventually build its own
fighter planes of exclusively Is-
raeli design, according to reports
by Israeli military-industrial lead-
ers last weekend.
The disclosures of progress
made by Israel's arms industry,
hitherto veiled in secrecy, was
seen as an attempt to allay public
fears that the country might be
left high and dry by France's em-
bargo on military equipment and
airplane spare parts to Israel.
The backbone of Israel's air
force has been the French Mirage

I do not want to believe de Gaulle
wants to destroy Israel." He added
that "De Gaulle is certainly not
mad enough to sell 50 Mirages to
the Iraqis for nothing, and the
Iraqis certainly will not pay."
The French manufacturers
said the de Gaulle embargo on
military equipment and spare
parts to Israel came as a sur-
prise to all French circles,
especially to friends of Israel of
which there are many. They said
they had no choice but to obey
the orders of their government.
They indicated, however, that

Father's Footsteps Are Followed by Magnes
The London Jewish Observer and
Middle East Review carried this
item in a recent issue:
When the late Judah L. Magnes

United States to be the first presi-

degree too, after which, in 1938,
he returned to Jerusalem to join
the staff of the Hebrew University.
It took nine years before the uni-
ersity was equipped to provide
him with his PhD.

other sources. Shidlovsky hinted
that some modifications may be
introduced at the new Beth Shem-
esh plant in view of the embargo.
The Beth Shemesh works is
Israel's largest aircraft parts

workers, some of whom have been

Itzhak Ironi, director-general of
the defense ministry's military in-
dustries department, said in a
television interview that local in-
dustries are also producing all
types of guns and ammunition used
by the air force which were im-
ported from France until recently.
He said military aircraft parts
such as fuel tanks, bomb bays
and rocket holders are all being
manufactured locally as are tank
guns and ammunition.
According to Ironi, Israel's mili-
tary-industries are producing more
than the country's armed forces
require, and the surplus is export-
ed. "As a matter of fact," he
noted, "France was one of our
customers, and we have not yet
declared a counter-embargo."
Israel has long produced its own
basic infantry weapon, the Uzzi
submachinegun, which it has also
become standard equipment in the
armies of West Germany, the
Netherlands and Iran.
