"Looking toward the
future," a reporter asked
the Secretary, "has Amer-
ica been so stunned by the
experience of Vietnam
that it will never again
come to the military or
economic aid of an ally? I
am talking specifically in
the case of Israel."

Kissinger replied, "As I
pointed out in a speech a
few weeks ago, one lesson
we must learn from this
experience (Vietnam) is that
we must be very careful in
the commitments that we
make.
"I believe that the experi-
ence in 4e war can make us
more mature in the commit-
ments we undertake and
more determined to main-
tain those we have.
"I would therefore think
that with relation to other
countries, including Israel,
that no lessons should be
drawn by the enemies of our
friends from the experience
in Vietnam."
Later, • when asked when

"are we ever going to take
some obvious action show-
ing American displeasure at
the behavior of the two com-
munist superpowers," Kis-
singer said that the rela-
tionship is "based on
ideological hostility" but
there are also "practical rea-
son for cooperation in cer-
tain limited spheres."

He said, "Of course the
Soviet Union and the Peo-
ples Republic (of China)
must be responsible for the
consequences of these ac-
tions that lead to an upset
of the situation in Indo-
china or maybe in the Mid-
dle East, that is, the intro-
duction of massive
armaments that will in all
probability be used offen-
sively is an event that we
cannot ignore."

The U.S. took no action or
publicly indicated displea-
sure towards the Soviet gov-
ernment while it was build-
ing up the armaments in
Egypt, Syria and Iraq that
preceded the Yom Kippur
War.

The Palestine Liberation
Organization also is heavily
armed with Soviet weap-
ons.

Rustin explained that
"our support of Israel does
not mean that we do not
support self-determination
for the Palestinians," but,
he added, "We are not for
the self-determination of
the Palestinians if they are
dedicated to the destruc-
tion of another people
. . .

Rustin was also critical of
the "Arabs attempting to
bring discrimination to the
United States by their boy-
cott"-and promised that the
American black community
was not going "to sit idly" in
the face of "imported Arab
discrimination."
