Military Quid-Pro-Quo for Egypt
Demanded by Peres on Missiles
Zionism Question Splits
UN's Africa Members
UNITED NATIONS — In a key reversal, and indication
of a split among African countries, a United Nations com-
mittee voted Monday to postpone action to include Zionism
in a resolution condemning apartheid, racism and colonial-
Israeli Ambassador Chaim Herzog said Monday's vote
was an indication "that there is a growing reaction to the
Arab attempts to dictate to others."
"The African group has begun to realize that the
Arabs are ignoring the true interests of Africa and what
happened today is an expression of the awakening of
some Americans to the true state of affairs," Herzog
Herzog told the committee last Friday that the pro-
posed amendment, "together with similar moves, is de-
signed to sabotage the efforts of the Geneva conference for
peace in the Middle East, and to deflect those who are mov-
ing along the road to peace from their purpose."
He said the resolution before the committee to con-
demn apartheid and colonialism could achieve a consensus
"of great importance to our African colleagues."
But instead of this being permitted to happen, the en-
voy said. "a group of countries, drunk with the feeling of

The House of Representatives Wednesday evening voted, 341 to 69, to approve the pro-
posal to send American technical experts to monitor the Sinai buffer zone. The Senate was
expected to approve the resolution by a similarly overwhelming vote on Thursday or Friday.
JERUSALEM (JTA) — Defense Minister Shimon Peres said that Israel would withdraw its request for
Pershing missiles from the United States if Egypt reciprocated by giving up its Russian-made "scud" mis-
siles. "Instead of escalation, let us try the road to de-escalation," the Defense Minister declared in an
address at a dinner of the United 'Jewish Appeal annual study mission.
The Defense Minister said Israel sought weapons such as the Pershing not to make war but to deter
it. He said Israel was not interested in the Pershing for its nuclear delivery capability. He noted that the
Phantom and Skyhawk jets already in Israel's air force could theoretically delivP- nuclear devices. He said
that when Israel bought those planes from the U.S. it was with the clear understanding that they would
never carry nuclear devices and this understanding has been honored, Peres said.
Peres' offer to withdraw Israel's request for missiles if there is a reduction in Egyptian missile
stocks, came just before the full U.S. Senate debate on the Israel-Egypt Sinai pact got underway
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee by a 10-2 vote Tuesday adopted the House International
Relations Committee's resolution approving the sending of 200 American technicians to the Sinai.
Sen. Dick Clark (D-Iowa) who voted for the resolution, said he would propose three amendments that
go beyond the House committee's restrictions that includes all agreements apart from the assignment of
civilian technicians. Democratic Majority Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana and Sen. Joseph Biden (D-
Del.) voted against the resolution. Approval of Congress is required before the Sinai accord and the four
collateral agreements reached by the U.S. with Israel and Egypt go into effect.
Kissinger testified, with regard to the U.S. undertakings, including its 16-point agreement with Israel,
that the Administration is "particularly concerned" that congressional approval of the stationing of techni-
cians not be linked to the collateral agreements. He said the U.S. undertakings are "distinct and separate"

ZOA Adopts Vigilant Role Opposing Pressures
Threatening Israel's Existence; Presidents'
Conference Criticized, Democratization Urged
By Jewish News Special Correspondent
CHICAGO — Mounting concern over the next steps facing Israel in the struggle for security, the Zionist Organiza-
tion of America, at its 78th annual convention, which concluded five days of continuous sessions here at the Sheraton
Chicago, Sunday evening, moved in the direction of vigilance to mobilize public opinion against pressures that could
prove devastating for the Jewish state.
Dr. Joseph P. Sternstein, who was re-elected president of the ZOA, warned of impending new dangers and
called for action that would abandon both secrecy in dealings which could lead to further reductions in Israel's
territorial security as well as dangers to the established U.S.-Israel friendship.
The approach was based primarily on demands by Dr. Sternstein and his associates for democratization of the
major Jewish communal structures and firm actions to assure security for Israel and
continuity in pragmatic relations between Israel and this country.
In relation to the latest Israel-Egyptian pact there was concern, but the pact was
not rejected by the ZOA. The approach of the major Jewish organizations, through the
Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, was the primary
target of criticism on the grounds of resort to shtadlanut, of submission to complacency
stemming from Israeli leadership and White House pressures. On both scores, spokes-
men emphasized, there is need for the urgency of firmness by American Jewry, specifi-
cally by the ZOA, to assure firmness in facing dangers to Israel's future.
Jacques Torczyner, former ZOA president and member of the Jewish Agency
Executive; Prof. Hans Joachim Morgenthau, noted authority on foreign affairs;
Gen. Ariel Sharon, hero of the Yom Kippur War; Herman Weisman, a past ZOA
president; Admiral Elmo Zumwalt and other authoritative students of the Middle
East, joined in evidencing their concern of the next steps, involving the Golan
Heights and the West Bank, in the negotiations that may soon be renewed by Secre-
tary of State Henry A. Kissinger.
