Sander Levin on Monday
announced his support of
consumer groups who want
to go directly to the people
to enact a strong deceptive
trades practices bill for Mich-
Levin, seeking the Demo-
cratic nomination for gover-
nor, said he will ask his sup-
porters to circulate petitions
to put the consumer's bill on
the ballot in November. At
the same time, they are get-
ting signatures on his own
nominating petitions.
A similar consumer bill
passed the state House of
Representatives this year and
in the past, but has never
cleared the Senate. Current-
ly, the bill remains in the
Senate Judiciary Committee.
The bill gives consumers
the right to class action law
suits and gives the attorney
general 'legal power to fight
deceptive practices.
Levin also urged support
of a tax program to help
create 100,000 new jobs a
year in Michigan. Levin call-
ed for passage of Substitute
House Bill 4315, which gives
tax credits to businesses with
growing work forces.
Levin's suggestion to tie
tax relief for business to ex-
panded job opportunities re-
sulted in the introduction and
adoption of his concept by
the House Taxation Commit-
tee last week.

AIPAC Exposes Anti-Israel Propagandists

Editor-in-Chief Emeritus
Jewish Telegraph Agency

(Copyright 1974, JTA, Inc.)

Ask any leading member
of both Houses of Congress
whether they know Isaiah
Kenen, the chairman of the
American Israel Public Af-
fairs. Committee, and the
answer will be, "Yes." Ask
officials in the State Depart-
ment the same question and
the answer will be the same.
Everybody in Washington
who has anything to do with
Middle East affairs' knows
"Si" Kenen. •
Si has been the spark plug
of AIPAC ever since it was
established 20 years ago.
AIPAC combats the myths
which pro-Arab elements
spread about Israel and pre-
sents the true facts to legis-
lators, statesmen, clergymen,
educators, editors and public
opinion maker s. It also
reaches important personali-
ties outside of Washington
through its Washington news-
letter, Near East Report.
The AIPAC annual confer-
ence held last week closed
with a policy statement on
American-Israel relations and
with a reception at Capitol
Hill at which the participants
mingled with legislators and
U.S. officials. The partici-
pants were addressed in the
State Department by Assist-
ant Secretary of State Alfred
L. Atherton, Jr. who is in
charge of Middle East af-
fairs; he also answered ques-
tions from the floor.
AIPAC works_ to weaken
the impact which at least 17
Arab and pro-Arab organiza-
tions in this country are
seeking to make upon the
United States against Israel.
Some of these organizations
are influential in Washington
and AIPAC seeks to counter-
act them.
The oldest of these groups
is American Friends of the
Middle East which operates
from Washington and has of-
fices in the United States and
in the Middle East. It was
founded in 1951 by the late
Stephen Penrose, one-time
president of the American

University in Beirut, and the
late Dorothy Thompson, the
well-known columnist who
turned pro-Arab after being
for many years a close
friend of Dr. Chaim Weiz-
mann and of leading Ameri-
can Zionists. It has been re-
ported that the group al-
legedly has been substantial-
ly subsidized by the Central
Intelligence Agency for many
The Committee of Con-
cerned Americans is another
group seeking to undermine
sympathy toward Israel in
Washington. It has in its
ranks Dr. John H. Davis,
former High Commissioner
of the United Nations, David
Ness, a former State Depart-
ment diplomat who was in
1967 assigned to the Ameri-
can embassy in Cairo, and
Rev. John Sutton, editor of
a publication generally sym-
pathetic to the Arabs. The
committee published ads at-
tacking Israel as being re-
sponsible for the energy
crisis in the United States.
Then there is the American
Middle East Rehabilitation,
Inc., which operates on a na-
tional scale, and the Ad Hoc
Committee on the Middle
East which was launched
soon after the Six-Day War,
most of its sponsors being
faculty members of various
American universities.
There is also the Actions
Committee on American-
Arab Relations which • is
known to have 200 wealthy
backers and which became
very bold since the Six-Day
The American Palestine
Committee is the vehicle of
Norman Dacey, who during
the past five years has been
extremely active in support
of the Arab cause and was
an invited gupst of an Arab
conference • held in Kuwait.
Dacey seeks to penetrate
leading American news-
papers with bitter anti-Israel
allegations through paid ad-
vertisements and letters to

Washington. Officials of this
body are quoted as saying
that the association's goal is
to become a kind of an um-
brella organization for the
800 or so Arab-American
groups across the country.
The Association of Arab
American University Grad-
uates supports the Arab
guerrilla movement and had
Daniel Berrigan as a fea-
tured speaker at its conven-
tion last year.
The Organization of Arab
Students claims more than
8,000 members and over 100
chapters in universities
across the U. S. and Canada.
The Muslim Students As-
sociation with over 100 chap-
ters is actively engaged in
disseminating anti-I sr a el
propaganda. The MSA an-
nounced last December that
it has organized a "publicity
front" to reach officials in
Washington and newspapers.
The United American Arab
Congress and other Arab
groups are active against Is-
rael in this country.

War Is Part
of Israel Life


president of Tel Aviv Uni-
versity, Prof. Yuval Neeman,
said in an interview with the
editors of Ma'ariv that con-
stant warfare must be ac-
cepted as an inescapable
adjunct of living in Israel.
Prof. Neeman recently
served as a special adviser
to Israel's secret service.
"You will observe," he
said, "that the first Arab
assaults came in the years
1920-1921. Thereafter they re-
curred in a seven to eight
year cycle. There were the
. Arab "riots" of 1929, follow-
ed by intermittent attacks
in the years 1936 to 1939. The
fourth episode occurred in
1947-1948, Israel's War of In-
dependence. Then came
chapter 5 in the Suez Cam-
paign of 1956, and chapters
6 and 7 in the wars of 1967
and 1973." -
Prof. Neeman concluded
that Israel must be prepared
for future clashes with the
• Social and economic condi_
tions must be adapted to this
sad fact of life; and Israelis
must never again allow
themselves to be caught off
guard, as happened in the
recent Yom Kippur assault,
' Neeman added.
