Synagogue Council Head Hits Linking
of Viet Pullout to ' Betrayal of Israel'

NEW YORK (JTA)—The presi-
dent of the Synagogue Council of
America Sunday assailed individ-
uals who draw a "simplistic equa-
tion" between Israel and Vietnam.
Rabbi Solomon J. Sharfman said
it was "politically and morally re-
prehensible" to suggest that U.S.
withdrawal from Vietnam "must
inexorably lead to a betrayal of

Rabbi Sharfman spoke at the
annual dinner of the Synagogue
Council, the representative body
of the lay and rabbinic branches ,
Reform. Conservative and ;
Orthodox Judaism in the U.S. He
criticized sharply "public state-
ments that Jews who are critical
of the Nixon administration's po-
licy in Vietnam are doing a dis-
service to Israel."
Without identifying those alleged
to have made such statements, the
rabbi said they "ignore the funda-
mental distinction" between Israel
and Vietnam and "do a major in-
justice to Israel no less than to
our own country."
He said there is a sharp distinc-
tion between the Southeast Asia
war and the 'situation facing Israel.
"The survival of Israel is a moral
imperative that transcends the
transient, shifting grounds of
short-range strategies and inter
ests, Rabbi Sharfman said.

"Sooner or later, he said,
"American soldiers will be out
of Vietnam, and it is the Viet-
namese themselves who must

inevitably determine their own
fate. The issue for them is not
whether there is or is not to be
a Vietnam on the map. Rather It
is what kind of government,
coalition or otherwise, will gov-
ern them. There Is danger that
Vietnam will cease to exist," he
said. "For Israel, however, that
indeed is the issue will Israel
stay on the map . . . or will it
be destroyed? For it is the de-
struction of Israel that remains
the constant objective of Arab

Rabbi Sharfman said he did not
speak for or against President
Nixon's Vietnam policy. He noted
that whatever the position of
American Jews, "be it one of con-
fidence in the administration's
policies or one of criticism and
dissent, it is a position that flows
from a profound concern that we
have as American citizens for the
long-range interests and welfare
of this nation."

He conceded that "The effect of
a withdrawal from Vietnam on the
security and survival of small na-
tions who are dependent on us for
assistance is also a relevant moral
and political concern. But it is both
politically and morally reprehen-
sible to suggest that an American
disengagement in Vietnam, which
in any event is the stated goal of
President Nixon no less than of
the dissenters, must inexorably
i lead to a betrayal of Israel."
