Harriman Proposes Lend-Lease for Israel
NEW YORK—In a special article
written for the New York Times.
W. Averell Harriman, American
statesman who represented this
country in the Paris tawlks with
the North Vietnamese and who is
a former governor of New York,
proposes lend-lease for Israel.
Pointing to the strains on Israel
as a result of the 1967 war, he
called attention to qaudrupled
military costs, indicating that
Israel's balance of payments now
shows an annual deficit of $1,200,-
000,000 on a current accounts basis.
The 70-year-old diplomat wrote
that "the great advantage of
lend-lease is that under it "the
Arab nations could be assured
that after peace had been
achieved, major items of sophis-
ticated military equipment would
not be kept by Israel but would
be returned to the United
Mates." He recalled thit "In
December 1910 President Roose-
velt made a brilliant proposal
'to get away from the dollar
sign' while providing arms to
nations whose survival we want-
ed to support."
Roosevelt did that through "tho
loaning of military equipment on
the basis that when it was no
longer needed the unexpended part
would be returned to the United
States," Harriman wrote.
The former governor of New
York state _and presidential cabi-
net member, continued:
"We must recognize that many
Arabs have a real, though un-
realistic, fear, based in part on
lease that Gov. Harriman rejected
is "to make military equipment
available to Israel on a grant
(free) basis." Although "Israel is
virtually unique in having had to
contract to pay for all arms she
received from the United States,"
he wrote, to give that country free
arms "at this late date . . . would
be seen by the Arabs as a provoca-
tive act and might impede our
effort to bring about peace."

HISTADRUT'S SECOND HALF-CENTURY
on what brought
on the June 1967 war, that Israel
is an imperialistic state bent on
expanding her position. The knowl-
edge that in the event of peace
Israel would relinquish much of
its sophisticated armament could
serve as an incentive for the Arab
states to negotiate."
Ambassador Harriman noted
that "Equipment supplied under
lend-lease should be carefully lim-
ited, as Israel, like her neighbors,
must be encouraged to accept the
fact that security lies not in
strength of military forces but in
a genuine peace settlement"
Harriman contended that "Presi-
dent Nixon's request to the Con-
gress for $500,000,000 for arms to
Israel makes urgent the immediate
reconsideration of how we should
aid Israel in her struggle for sur-
He observed that "the flow of
Soviet weapons" to Egypt since
the Six-Day War "has required an
economically costly and increas-
ingly burdensome Israeli response."
While Israel has "the determi-
nation and ability" to defend
herself without outside troops,
"It is clearly essential to insure
that Israel has sufficient wea-
pons to defend herself," the
diplomat stated. "But," he added,
"it is also vital that Israel not
be compelled to spend herself
into bankruptcy or to undermine
the fabric of her society."
