National Committee for Labor Israel Lauds Nixon Foreign Policy Statement

NEW YORK (JTA)—Some 900
delegates from the Eastern Sea-
board attending the midwinter con-
ference of the National Committee
for Labor Israel adopted a resolu-
tion lauding President Nixon's
foreign policy statement submitted
last week to Congress.
The resolution singled out Presi-
dent Nixon's reaffirmation of
American intentions to maintain
"a careful watch on the balance of
military forces and to provide arms
to friendly states as the need
arises. The resolution scored the
Soviet Union and France for pro-
viding "tremendous quantities of
material" to the hostile Arab states
and to others equally hostile to
Israel.
The first official Israeli reaction
to President Nixon's foreign policy
message to Congress came from
Gideon Rafael. director general of
the foreign ministry, in a radio
interview.
( Rafael said that Nixon's call to
Soviet Russia to halt its interven-
tion in the Middle East was "one of
the clearest statements made by
the American administration in re-
cent years as regards Soviet inten-
tions to exploit the conflicts in the
area."
( Asked if he thought the message
impli•id that Israel would get the
American arms it asked for, Rafael
said "In this matter we have no
need for guesswork. We are in
dialogue with them (the Ameri-
cans). I call your attention to the
passage in the President's message
in which he said that the United
States will supply arms to friendly
nation's as the need arises.")
Dr. William Wexler. chairman of
the Conference of Presidents of
Major Jewish Organizations and
international president of Bnai
Brith, saluted Histadrut on its
golden anniversary. He said that
"Ilistadrut is the life, breath and
guts of the state of Israel. It is
a uninue labor movement doing a
comniete job of welfare, education
and medical protection for the
people of Israel." Dr. Wexler cited
Hist adrut's Afro-Asian Institute
that has forged links between Is-
rael and 81 developing nations.

Every Puppy Wormed, Inoculated and Accompanied With
Fabulous Health Warranty,

Leon H. Keyserling, Washing.
ton economist and president of
the National Committee, an-
nounced the convening of an
Assembly- of American Friends
of Histradrut in Israel on June

East policy would impose a settle-
ment "that s'ttles nothing except
the Arabs' right to attack Israel
with impunity," Rep. Richard L.
Ottinger. New York Democrat
charitnd here.
Speaking at Cong. Agudas Achim,
Rep. Ottinger also described that
policy as one of seeking to avert a
Soviet "monopoly of influence"
among the Arab states which pos-
sess "most of the material re-
sources that we and other great
nations have always coveted in
backward areas." Rep. Ottinger de-
clared that such a goal could be
achieved only at the price of "the
destruction of Israel and the ex-
termination of its 2,500,000 Jewish
citizens."
He also warned that "if Israel
is forced once again, as in 1957,
to surrender the fruits of a dearly-
won victory, the Arabs will once
again put off real ileac: negotia-
tions, secure in the knowledge they
have everything to gain and noth-
ing to lose.."
