convinced
that
Egypt's President Sadat
sincerely wants peace, and
Israel isn't sure.
This problem underlies
disputes like whether to call
the next agreement a mili-
tary withdrawal or an in-
terim political settlement,
or whether Sadat should be
called on to make a state-
ment of non-belligerency or
merely promise not to make
war for a certain time.
Israel needs to see an un-
ambiguous, public sign of
Egypt's good intentions, not
a vague, personal promise to
Ford or Kissinger which
may not mean quite what
Mr. Ford or Mr. Kissinger
thought it meant.
Israel needs this sign
not simply because it is
stubborn or because Prime
Minister Rabin runs a
shaky parliamentary coa-
lition, but because its
neighbors are actively
denying its right to be
there.

There are very few Arabs
who would not be deeply re-
lieved if the Zionist state
were dismantled and its
Jewish inhabitants sent to
live elsewhere.
Anything that makes this
hope seem feasible will
make the Middle East more
dangerous. American-in-
duced "progress" that leads
to a major weakening, real
or illusory, in Israel's ability
to defend itself will contri-
bute more to a new war
than the "stagnation and
stalemate" President Ford
says he fears.
Unfortunately, it's very
easy for Arab opinion to
conclude, from oil money
talk, votes in the UN and the
like, that things are turning
inexorably in its favor. The
current U.S. behavior is
only reinforcing this notion.
Israel is asked to give up
tangibles like strategic
passes and oil fields in re-
turn for ambiguous ges-
tures and secret promises,
and this fundamental im-
balance is then com-
pounded by the American
fallacy that the only
means of moving forward
is to pressure Israel.

For instance, that it allow
Israeli cargoes through the
Suez Canal, a concession
made with the first dissen-
gagement and then reneged
on.
Israel, we wager, would

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Frank R. Lautenberg, gen-
eral chairman of the United
Jewish Appeal, announced
that in spite of the latest
terrorism in Jerusalem, the
UJA is launching its most
ambitious mission program
to Israel to date.

Referring to last Friday's
terrorist bomb blast in Jeru-
salem, Lautenberg said "No
provocation, however cruel
and cowardly, will deter us.
This outpouring for mis-
sions is in itself a defiant ce-
lebration of the sanctity of
Jewish life."

The UJA announced that
there are already 250 Jewish
leaders going on the Prime
Minister's Mission to Israel
in August.

More than 300 commu-
nity leaders have signed up
for the annual study confer-
ence in October and there
are over 400 reservations in
the Young Leadership Cabi-
net's "Roach" mission Nov.
6-16 which is aiming for
1000 participants.

During September, Oc-
tober and November there
will be over 50 community
missions to Israel as part.
of the UJA's overseas mis-
sion program, the UJA
said.

Meanwhile, UJA head-
quarters reported receiving
a cable from the Family
Mission of its Young Lead-
ership Cabinet presently in
Israel, composed of 23 fami-
lies with over 63 children,
who reported that they were
\vell and undeterred by the
bombing in Jerusalem.

Toon in Israel
for New Post

TEL AVIV (JTAI — Mal-
colm Toon, the new United
States Ambassador to Is
rael, has arrived in Isra._
with his wife and daughter
to take up his new position.
He said he brought no
special message from Presi-
dent Ford but did bring the
best wishes of the President
and Secretary of State
Henry A. Kissinger for the
Israeli nation and its gov-
ernment.
Toon, a career foreign
service diplomat who has
had no experience in Middle
East countries, told report-
ers that like all Americans,
he shared sympathy for Is-
rael and its prohlems.
He added: "I think that all
Americans place a very
great value on the ties be-
tween Israel and the U.S.
and on every effort feasible
to maintain and keep these
