The signatories — 50
Democrats and 25 Repub-
licans — included most of
the Senate's leaders of
both parties. They com-
prised the largest number
of senators ever to sign a
letter to the President or
the secretary of state on
behalf of Israel since the
Six-Day War.

Is Egypt Troop Cut Easing
of Tensions or Military Move?

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Israeli officials are speculat-
ing over whether the recent
reduction of Egyptian
forces east of the Suez
Canal represents a deliber-
ate easing of tensions on the
eve of the official reopening
of the waterway and Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat's meet-
ing with President Ford; or
whether it is a tactical mili-
tary move preparatory to a
massive crossing of the Suez
Canal by Egyptian troops
and armor now deployed on
its West Bank.
Whatever Cairo's inten-
tions, the Egyptians have
withdrawn a considerable
portion of the 7,000 troops,
36 cannons and several
dozen tanks they are enti-
tled to keep east of the Suez
Canal under terms of the
January 1974 disengage-
ment agreements with Is-
rael.

This move, over the past
few days, was contrary to
the expectation in Israeli
military circles that the
Egyptians intended to beef
up their forces in Sinai coin-
cidental with the canal's
reopening, even to the point
of violating the disengage-
ment accords. Cairo was
expected to use the pretext
of protecting the waterway
from attack by Israeli artil-
lery deployed on a line west
of the Mitle and Gidi passes

and within easy range of the
canal.

Defense Minister Shi-
mon Peres said last week
that Israel welcomed the
reopening of the canal and
would not interfere with
shipping using it.

Meanwhile, former De-
fense Minister Moshe
Dayan, to the surprise of
many, has proposed that
Israel make a conciliatory
military "gesture" to coin-
cide with the official re-
opening of the Suez Canal
June 5.
Dayan, generally re-
garded as "hawkish" in his
views, said at a Labor Align-
ment political debate Tues-
day that Israel could thin
out its line facing the Suez
Canal by pulling back some
of its heavy artillery,
though infantry troops
manning the lines would
remain in place. Such a ges-
ture apparently has been
under discussion behind the
scenes in government circles
for the past few weeks.

Peres is known to have
favored it initially, but
Premier Yitzhak Rabin
was opposed.

Israeli circles are not dis-
counting the possibility that
the Egyptians pulled back
troops and armor from the
east bank of the Canal in or-
der to form a powerful
striking force that could re-
cross the waterway without
seriously interfering with
maritime traffic.

"We trust," the senators
wrote, "that your recom-

tary and economic needs."

NEW YORK (JTA) — The
Association for JeWish
Studies has established a
scholarly journal, to be
called the AJS Review, ac-
cording too the National
Foundation for Jewish Cul-
ture.
The AJS Review "is in-
tended to serve as a vehicle
for the publication of schol-
arly articles in all fields of
Judaica, defined as any sub-
ject directly bearing on the
civilization and experience
of the Jewish people." A
grant from the foundation
will support the periodical.

Special significance was
attached to the fact that all
10 of the freshmen senators
— including Dale Bumpers
(D-Ark.) who defeated for-
mer Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee Chairman
J. William Fulbright in last
year's primaries — joined in
signing the letter.
The signatories also in-
cluded Sen. George McGov-
ern (D-S.D.) who has been
praised by the Palestine
Liberation Organization as
the highest U.S. official to
meet with the PLO.
They did not include,
however, Sen Charles Percy
(R-Ill.) who did not meet
with the PLO but has urged
Israel to communicate with
it, or Sen. Robert P. Griffin
(R-Mich.)
The letter, nevertheless,
was a definite sign that re-
ports of an erosion of sup-
port for Israel in Congress
were grossly exaggerated.

The senators urged the
president to "make it
clear, as we do, that the
United States, acting in its
own national interests,
stands firmly with Israel
in the search for peace in
future negotiations, and
that this premise is the
basis of the current reas-
sessment of U.S. policy in
the Middle East."

The senators stressed
that "a strong Israel consti-
tutes a most reliable barrier
to domination of the area by
outside parties and "given
the recent heavy flow of
Soviet weaponry to Arab
states, it is imperative that
we do not permit the mili-

tary balance to shift against
Israel."
The letter was originally
sponsored by Sen. Jacob K.
Javits (R-N.Y.) and 18 co-
sponsors — 12 Democrats
and seven Republicans.
Previously, the largest
number of senators to peti-
tion Administration offi-
cials on Israel's behalf was
73 who wrote to former Sec-
retary of State William P.
Rogers in August 1970 urg-
ing an end to the delay in
sending phantom jets to Is-
rael during the Suez crisis
that year. Last Dec. 9, 71
senators wrote to President
Ford to support Israel's op-
position to the PLO after
Yasir Arafat's appearance
at the United Nations.
