JERUSALEM—In spite of

One of these improvements
is construction of a commu-

those dotting the Old City

an underground parking ga-

streets of their congestion.

past conflicts and civiliza-
tions in the hastily built
apartment buildings con-
structed after the Six-Day-
War, the illuminated First
and Second Century tombs
and walls and decaying and
war-torn edifices that still
remain.
However, there are mod-
ern buildings that make up
an architectural balance in
the city's character. For ex-
ample, there are "suburban-
style" buildings and high-
rise apartments that jut into
the Old City skyline.
Sites around the Old City
walls, eyesores from the
days of the British Mandate,
have been cleared away and
have been turned into park-
ways and promenades.
Kollek enjoys a new res-
taurant called Peer's locat-
ed near the artists' complex,
owned by a Moroccan chef,
whom Kollek insists cooks
the only kosher haute cuisine
in the world.
In spite of the advances
the city is still threatened
politically. King Hassan II of
Morocco announced a call for
"next year in Jerusalem,"
and no Arab leader has chal-
lenged that call. The Vatican,
whch for years called for the
internationalization of the
city, has changed its view
somewhat and asked that the
city be ruled by foreign con-
suls.
That would put Kollek out
of a job.

U.S. Urged to Get
Oil Blackmailers
Where It Hurts

WASHINGTON — A recent
U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture survey showed that Sau-
di Arabia is 100 per cent de-
pendent on imports for both
wheat and feed grains, and
even wealthier Kuwait is 100
per cent dependent on im-
ported feed grains.
This fact should have a
bearing, says Sen. Strom
Thurmond (R. S.C.), on U.S.
dealings with those countries
that have put an embargo on
oil supplies.
Thurmond introduced legis-
lation last month which
would require the President
to prohibit the export of
agricultural grain "to any
nation reducing, for political
purposes, the quantity of oil
normally exported to the
United States or nationaliz-
ing any U.S. properties." A
similar resolution was intro-
duced in the House.
Besides Saudi Arabia and
Kuwait, countries that need
imported foodstuffs include
Iraq, Egypt, Jordan, Leban-
on and Syria. In many cases,
the exports are shipped at
reduced cost or as outright
gifts.
American agricultural ex-
ports to the Middle East are
expected to jump 50 per cent
in 1973-74--totaling $300,000,-
000.
In a leter to members of
"Herut U. S. A." (United
Zionists-Revisionists), Presi-
dent Howard Adelson urged
a letter-writing campaign to
all U.S. senators and repre-
sentatives calling on them to
co-sponsor Thurmond's bill,
52604.
Meanwhile, the U.S. gov-
ernment is reviewing the
commercial agreement it
signed with Saudi Arabia in
1933 to determine whether
King Faisal's oil embargo
against the U.S. is violating
it.
However, an early decision
-on the results of the review
is unlikely.

and El Al Israel Airlines.
Benjamin Hershkovitz,
manager of the local El Al
office, said the "physical
presence" of American Jews
in Israel, at this time, is "a
significant inspirer of moral
courage" to the embattled
Israel, and that "Operation
Solidarity" will help strength-
en the bonds between Israel
and American Jewry.
Information regarding the
"Operation Solidarity" and
the Ramati reception can be
