Percy Policy Toward Israel !Draws strong Reaction

(Continued from • Page 1)
reportedly said that Israel
had missed a chance to ne-
gotiate a settlement with
King Hussein of Jordan and
was making a mistake in re-
fusing to deal with Arafat.
He reportedly indicated
that Israel would • have to
withdraw to "essentially"
the lines that existed before
the 1967 Six-Day War. He
said there was no question
that the U.S. must do every-
thing possible to insure
Israel's independence b u t
warned that "there are
limits to the level of sup-
port," particularly "to the
extent we'd go to support
Israeli occupation" of Arab
lands.
The statement issued by
the Jewish United Fund here
said, "It is difficult to un-
derstand his (Percy's) . char-
acterization of Yasir Arafat

at the United Nations call-
ing for the destruction of a

namely, Israel, with a holster

The statement continued:
"For Sen. Percy to be taken
in by so-called moderate
talk at a time when Arab
terrorists are firing bazook-
as at civilian aircraft and

"We wonder what has
happened to Sen. Percy's
sense of perspective and
even-handedness when he re-
fers to Israel's intransigence
when none of the other par-
ties are asked to take any
steps toward normalizing re-
lationships, leading to peace
in exchange for territory.
"That territory keeps those
who would destroy an ally
of the United States out of
gun's reach of the homes
and schools of a people who
would welcome true peace
more than 'anything in the
world."
Statements similar to those
attributed to him at the
journalists' breakfast were
made by Sen. Percy to news-
men in Israel before his de-
parture from that country
last week.
The senator visited 12
Middle Eastern countries in-
cluding Israel on his tour.
When asked by the Washing-
ton newsmen which of his
views changed the most as a
result of his visit to the Mid-
east, he replied that he had
gained a new impression of
the Palestinians.
Meanwhile, in Washington,
Rep. Sidney Yates (D-Ill.),
dean of the Jewish con-
gressional delegation, said
Sen. Percy should "come
down from the cloud of pro-
paganda which still en-
velops him and look at the
hard facts."
"I must say to the sen-
ator," Yates said, "I am
surprised that as a member
of the Senate Foreign Re-
lations. Committee he is not
more aware of t h e harsh
realities and sensitive re-
lationships in the Middle
East. Making such provoca-
tive and ill-advised criticism
of Israel on the eve of sen-
sitive negotiations between
the parties could be pre-
judicial to Israel. The sen-
ator has rendered no con-
structive service to the cause
of peace."
His assertions that Israeli
leaders were "unrealistic" to
think they could avoid com-
municating with the Pales-
tine . Liberation Organization
and that its leader, Yasir
Arafat, is "relatively speak-
ing, a moderate," were seen
as another act towards pres-
suring Israel into accepting
the PLO as a negotiator
despite Arafat's statement to
the United Nations that the
PLO view of Palestine would
be to eliminate Israel as a
state.
Percy was one of 71 sen-
ators who less than two
months ago signed a letter
and sent it to President Ford
asking him to resolutely op-
pose recognition of the PLO
in any way. That letter out-
lined Arafat's support of
Palestinian terror and his in-
sistence on wiping out Israel
as a state.
In Tel Aviv, Sen. James
McClure (R-Idaho) implied

here that Israel should not
expect to get all of the
$21.5 billion in American ec-
onomic and military aid it
has requested. Arriving here
Tuesday on a three-day visit,
McClure noted that Israel's
request came at a time of
severe economic difficulties
in the U.S.
He said that while he be-
lieved U.S. support for Israel
would continue, there were
indications o f reluctance
among Americans to con-
tinue massive military as-
sistance to Israel, especially
in • view of the controversy
over the continuation of such
assistance to South Vietnam

and Cambodia. The senator
also expressed doubt that
Congress would agree to
send American troops to as-

sist Israel in the event of a
new outbreak of war in the
Middle East. McClure was
scheduled to meet with

Premier Yitzhak Rabin Wed-
nesday. He will visit Saudi
Arabia, Iran and Algiers
after leaving Israel.
