Israel, Saudi Arabia Arms Flare Dispute in U.S. Committee

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The relative needs of Israel
and Saudi Arabia for large
scale infusions of U.S. mili-
tary hardware has punc-
tuated a dispute between
two members of the House
International Affairs Corn-
mittee. .
The matter came to a
head Jan. 2 when Rep. Ben-
jamin Rosenthal (D -NY)
introduced a resolution call-
ing for scrutiny of U.S.
arms deals with SaUdi Ara-
bia.

Rep. Clement J. Zablocki
(D-Wisc.) introduced a reso-
lution immediately after-
wards asking Congress to
disapprove the sale of 25 F-
15 fighter planes to Israel.
Zablocki objected to the
F-15 contract, said to
amount to $600 million,
noting that the proposal
came at the same time that
Rosenthal was opposing
the sale of $1.5 billion
worth of weapons to Saudi
Arabis.
Rosenthal pointed out
that "The Saudis, with their
unlimited resources and
market access, are under-
taking a major expansion of
their own forces along with
generously supplying and
bank-rolling the forces of all
the Arab confrontation
states. At the same time,
the Israelis, with most lim-
ited resources and market
access, are attempting to
modernize their aging air
force."
In his resolution question-
ing the deals with Saudi Ar-
abia, Rosenthal noted that
the current sale before Con-
gress would bring U.S. sales
to that country over an
82-day period this fall to
nearly $3.5 billion which
could be "a record year" for
such sales. He also cited

' NEW YORK — Prime
Minister Yitzhak Rabin has
invited more than 250 Jew-
ish leaders from the United
States and Canada to meet
with him and other govern-
ment leaders on Israel's eco-
nomic needs and problems
in 1976 next week.
The prime minister's Is-
rael Bond conference will
plan a program of action to
increase the participation of
Jewish communities abroad
in alleviating the severe
pressures on Israel's econ-
omy resulting from a record
high defense budget and a
staggering balance of pay-
ments deficit of more than
$3.5-billion, according to
Sam Rothberg, general
chairman of the Israel Bond
Organization, the central
source of funds for Israel's
economic development.
For the first time in the
20-year history of the Israel
Bond program, the confer-
ence will meet in Europe as
well as in Israel. The initial
sessions of the 1976 Confer-
ence will be held in Brussels
on Sunday and Monday to
focus attention on the new
opportunities for wider Is-
rael trade with Europe as a
result of the agreement Is-
rael signed early in 1975
with the Common Market
that will lift all tariff bar-
riers on Israeli goods by the
middle of next year.

Terrorists Are Jailed

TEL AVIV (JTA) — A
military tribunal in Gaza
sentenced three terrorists to
25 years in prison for plant-
ing a home-made bomb
which blew up an empty
tourist bus in Rishon Le-
Zion. The three were from
Khanyunis in southern
Gaza.

State Department projec-
tions of "at least another
billion, but if experience is
any indication, that is a con-
servative estimate."
Rosenthal said U.S. arnis
sales to Saudi Arabia total
approximately half of the
sales to all of the oil-produc-
ing Persian Gulf states and
more than a third of the $9
billion in sales to all coun-
tries this fiscal year.
Zablocki said that in of-
fering his resolution "I want
to make it abundantly clear

that I recognize and support
the preservation of the state
of Israel. Where I do depart
