American Policy Towards Israel
Criticized at Senate Hearings

American policy toward Is-
rael came under fire here
during hearings held by the
Senate Foreign Relations
Subcommittee on Near
Eastern and South Asian
'The promise of Ameri-
can guarantees to Israel,
and alternatively the threat
of the withdrawal of U.S.
support. are being used as
'-).e 'carrot and stick' of
nerican pressure on Is-
' ael," Robert Loeb, execu-
tive director of Breira (Al-
ternative) told the
committee last week.
Loeb described Breira as
a national Jewish educa-
tional organization commit-
ted to discussing Diaspora-
Israel relations.
Others who testified be-
fore the subcommittee
which was conducting a
hearing on the "Arab-Is-
rael Dispute — Priorities
for Peace," included
Rabbi Israel Miller, chair-
man of the Conference of
Presidents of Major Amer-
ican Jewish Organiza-
tions, Arthur J. Goldberg,
former U.S. Ambassador
to the UN, and Philip
Klutznick of Chicago, a
world Jewish leader and a
former member of the U.S.
delegation to the UN.
The subcommittee was
chaired by Sen. George Mc-
Govern (D-SD).
Loeb, who was speaking
for himself, not for Breira,
said that the policies of Sec-
retary of State Henry A.
Kissinger are "nothing more
than political blackmail."
He stated that the reas-
sessment of America's Mid-

dle East policy, part of a
reassessment of U.S. for-
reign policy called for by
President Ford last spring,
has "simply not taken place,
though it has been used as
an excuse to cut off discus-
sions with the Israelis about
future arms shipments,
even while negotiating arms
sales to Arab countries."

decision to force the renewal

the city of 38,350 Arabs,
tried to force their way into
the Cave of Machpela (the
burial grounds of the pa-
triarchs) Sunday during the
hours in which only Mos-
lems are allowed.
A group of about 30 Kir-
yat Arba militants on Mon-
day tried to enter the empty
building which served as the
Hadassah clinic in Hebron
until Jews fled the city in

the Arab riots of 1929.

Rabbi Moshe Levinger,
who was the leader in es-
tablishing Kiryat Arba
over government opposi-
tion, said efforts to extend
Jewish presence in Hebron
will continue.

He charged that he has
been unsuccessfully press-
ing, the military government
