Holland Attitude to Israel Unchancred% Statement Was in Error

Foreign Minister Max van
der Stoel has relieve d
Charles Thurkow of his
duties as foreign office
In an official communique,
the foreign minister stated
that recent events made it
very difficult, if not impos-
sible for Thurkow to con-
tinue his duties as spokes-
Last week, in a weekly
talk with journalists, Thur-
kow said that the Dutch
Mideast policy had changed
and now demands Israel's
withdrawal from all the
areas it has occupied since
the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.
Van der Stoel strongly de-
nied Thurkow's statement
upon his return from the
Euromarket ministers' meet-
ing in Brussels.
Earlier, a government
spokesman said the Nether-
lands' Mideast policy re-
mained "unchanged." He de-
nied that Holland had revised
this policy in favor of pre-
1967 borders for Israel.
He added that Thurkow did
so entirely on his own author-
ity and in the absence of
van der Stoel.
Van der Stoel said later
that it was very probably the
Soviet Union, despite its stat-
ed policy of detente, which
greatly encouraged the out-
break of Mideast hostilities
in October.
Speaking at the NATO
meeting in Brussels, van der
Stoel accused the USSR of
instigating the Arab oil coun-
tries to put long-existing
plans for using oil as a weap-
on into operation. He said
the Soviet Union purposely

wanted to put pressure on
Western Europe and sow
Meanwhile, observers say
the defeat of Premier Anker
Joergensen and his Social
Democratic Party in the na-
tional elections may weaken
Denmark's long-tiMe pro-
Israel policies in the Middle
Joergensen personally was
staunchly pro-Israel. In addi-
tion, the appearance of six
Communist deputies in the
Danish Parliament after an
absence of 17 years could
bode ill for Danish-Israeli re-
lations, they said.
In another development,
Scandinavian Airlines (SAS)
announced that it will cut
back its flights to Tel Aviv
in the coming weeks.
A spokesman for the air-
line said the move was
"strictly commercial" and in
no way directed against Is-
rael or a surrender to Arab
pressure. He said the cut-
back would affect most Mid-
dle Eastern countries.
In Bonn, Chancellor Willy
Brandt warned West Ger-
mans that the oil crisis would
increase inflation, now about
6.6 per cent, create unem-
ployment and cause the gov-
ernment to make changes in
its economic planning.
He said West Germany
would not take retaliatory
measures against the Arab
states because of the oil em-
The energy crisis was not
identical with the Middle
East crisis, he observed. The
former would last long after
the latter had been resolved.
In Washington, Jewish De-
fense League chairman Will-

Israel Lists Soviet Weapons
Captured From Arabs in War

viet Union has become a
substantial if unwitting sup-
plier of modern military
hardware to Israel.
Russian-made weapons and
equipment — and some made
in Czechoslovakia — includ-
ing hundreds of tanks and
artillery pieces, millions of
rounds of ammunition, anti-
tank missiles, amphibious
vehicles and bridge-building
equipment were captured
from Egypt and Syria during
the Yom Kippur War and
assimilated into Israel's ar-
Some of the weapons, taken
intact, were used immediate
ly against the enemy. Other
items in need of repair saw
action against their former
owners in later stages .of the
Israel's Corps of Engineers
has been enriched with ad-
vanced types of bridge-
building equipment. This in
eludes a Russian tank ferry
and mechanized bridges
which consist of bridge com-
ponents mounted on trucks
The Russian artillery seized
from Egypt and Syria in-
cludes 122 mm. long- and
short-barreled guns with
ranges from 11,800 meters to
over 20 kilometers; 85 mm.
and 100 mm. anti-tank guns
with 1,000-1,500 meter
ranges; and a 3,000-meter-
range anti-aircraft gun.
Israel also captured guns
of various caliber with
ranges of 6,000-13,700 meters
equipped with computerized
radar controlled sighting and
firing devices.
There are large quantities
of Czech-made "Topaz" ar-
mored personnel carriers

iam Perl described an attack
on the French Cultural Mis-
sion in New York Tuesday,
as "an apparent demonstra-
tion against the perfidious
policy of the -Pompidou gov-
ernment" toward Israel. '
Objects thrown at the mis-
sion by persons as yet un-
identified shattered several
of its windows and damaged
its interior. No one was re-
ported hurt.

Secretary of State Henry
A. Kissinger declared Wed-
nesday night that the energy
crisis was not simply a prod-
uct of the Arab-Israeli war
but the inevitable conse-
quence of the explosive
growth of worldwide demand
outrunning the incentives for

He called for collective ef-
forts to solve it.
The Middle East merely
made a chronic crisis acute.
But the crisis had been corn-
ing in any event, he said, ad-
dressing the Pilgrim Dinner
in his honor at the Europa

"The United States pro-
poses," Kissinger said, "that
the nations of Europe, North
America and Japan establish
an energy action group with
a mandate to establish within
three months an initial ac-
tion program for collabora-
tion in all areas of the energy
problem." He said the ener-
gy-producing nations "should
be invited to join it from the
very beginning in matters
common to both sides."
