In resolutions passed at the con-

U.S. to provide Israel with the
weapons it needs for its defense.
The resolution said: "We are hope.

recognizing the importance of the
sovereign State of Israel for the

Soviet Union and its client states

future of the Middle East."
In another resolution the ZOA
convention "condemned the volun-

willful violations of the cease fire

To fight increased Arab propa-
