Rostow Criticizes United States Mideast Pol icy

THE; DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

32 January 30, 1976

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Eugene V. Rostow, who was
undersecretary of state for
political affairs during the
Johnson Administration,
charged that since the 1973
Yom Kippur War the
United States, in its efforts
to wean the Arab states

from the Soviet Union, has
abandoned its reliance on
United Nations Security
Council Resolutions 242 and
338.
Noting that the resolu-
tions provide that "the Is-
raelis need not withdraw
one inch from the cease-fire
,lines until there is a firm
and binding agreement on
peace," Rostow declared
that "In negotiating the mil-
itary disengagement agree-
ment between Egypt and
Israel, our government gave
up its strongest and most
important negotiating posi-
tion, and a fundamental
principle as well."
Rostow, who is now Ster-
ling Professor of Law and
Public Affairs at Yale Uni-
versity, in a paper prepared

for delivery to the opening
session of the National
Committee on American
Foreign Policy's second
symposium held at the Wal-
dorf-Astoria last week, de-
clared:

"The Arab states have
turned to the Soviet Union
for help in order to destroy
Israel. We will have no
chance of weaning them
away from their Soviet
connection until they have
made a genuine peace with
Israel, and the dream of
destroying Israel begins to
recede into history. By
pressing Israel to give up
some of the occupied terri-
tories without peace, we
have allowed the Arab
states to continue to hope
that somehow, someday,

with Soviet help, they will
be able to liquidate Is-
rael."

Rostow, who was chair-
man of the symposium,
strongly criticized President
Ford and Secretary of State
Henry A. Kissinger for tell-
ing the American public
that there is a detente with
the Soviet Union which,
Rostow said, does not exist.
Charging that the Yom
Kippur War was the Soviet
Union's answer to the
American rapprochement
with China, Rostow de-
clared: "The wars and other
conflicts of the Middle East
are not simply regional
quarrels, or wars of reli-
gion, of dynasty, and of cul-
ture. They could not have
lasted, or become a threat to

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Official sources indicated
that the political talks be-
tween Foreign Minister
Yigal Allon and visiting
Canadian Foreign Minister
Allan MacEachen were
friendly although Mac-
Eachen was not entirely in
agreement with the Israeli
government's position on
the Palestinian question.
The sources said that Al-
lon explained to the Cana-
dian diplomat that Israel
was boycotting the current
Middle East debate of the
UN Security Council as a
symbol and warning of its
possible reaction to any
changes in the terms of re-
ference of the Geneva con-
ference.
But Allon said Israel did
not boycott every interna-
tional forum or conference
at which the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization was
present. He noted in that
connection that Israel would
be participating in this
year's Habitat Conference
at Vancouver despite the
likely presence of the PLO
there.
MacEachen, who ar-

rived in Israel Jan. 18 on
the final leg of a Middle
East tour that took him to
Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Ara-
bia and Iraq, reportedly
briefed Allon on his im-
pressions from the Arab
capitals.

Allon reportedly pointed
out that several Western
countries have taken legisla-

Luxury Imports
Abound in Israel

TEL AVIV (ZINS) — One
would never believe that Is-
rael suffers from a severe
shortage of hard currency
reserves judging by the
abundance of luxury import
items of clothing, shoes,
household appliances and
furniture, according to a
story that appeared recently
in the Hebrew daily, Davar.

The imposition of huge
import taxes has not slowed
down the demand for luxury
items. The reason is found
in the continually declining
value of the Israeli currency
which people have no incen-
tive to save.

tive action against the Arab
boycott of Israel and seemed
to hint that Israel would
welcome similar steps by
Canada. MacEachen was
said to have been non-com-
mittal on that matter..
Allon expressed warm
w
praise for Canada's role in
the United Nations Emer-
gency Force (UNEF) in
Sinai and the United Na-
tions Disengagement Ob-
server Force (UNDOF) on
the Golan Heights. Cana-
dian units have participated
in every peace-keeping force
since the inception of the
world organization.

38 U.S. Personnel
Arrive at Sinai
Warning Station

TEL AVIV (JTA) — An
advance party of 38 Ameri-
cans connected with the
U.S. early warning surveil-
lance station to be installed
between Israeli and Egyp-
tian lines in Sinai arrived in
Israel last week. A chart-
ered plane with the first
consignment of equipment
for the listening post landed
at Ben-Gurion Airport at
about the same time.
The Americans include
nine State Department offi-
cials headed by Nicholas G.
W: Thorne, field director of
the Sinai mission, and 21
technicians who will install
and help operate the ad-
vance warning post. The
technicians are employed by
the Systems Inc. of Dallas,
Tex., the private contractor
selected by the State De-
partment to install, operate
and maintain the electronic
station.
The Israeli army is assist-
ing in setting up the Ameri-
can listening post that was
provided for in the Israeli-
Egyptian Sinai accord
signed last September.
Units of the army corps of
engineers have been prepar-
ing ground for the construc-
tion of prefabricated
houses.
Meanwhile, in Washing-
ton, President Gerald Ford
appointed C. William Kon-
tos to head the 200-person
U.S. team in the Sinai. Kon-
tos, 53, is a member of the
State Department's policy
planning staff.

rael and the Arab states, it
does not follow that it can
be solved by dealing with
the Palestine Liberation
Organization which he said
"holds no mandate from the
Palestinian Arabs."
Instead he urged that the
American effort be concen-
trated to facilitate peace
between Jordan and Israel
since "they — and they
alone — can solve the prob-
lem of Palestine, and re-
move it as a grievance and a
burden in Arab life and a
threat to world peace."

world peace, without en-
couragement and assist-
ance, and now the active
participatiion, of the Soviet
Union."
Turning to the Palesti-
nian problem, Rostow said
that while this is the heart
of the conflict between Is-

Bond Leaders
Pledge Support

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Raising their right hands,
the 250 members of the
Prime Minister's Israel
Bonds conference pledged
before President Ephraim
Katzir last week that "every
day of the year we will per-
form some specific act to en-
sure the continuity of Jew-
ish life in our country and
throughout the world . . ."
With that vow, the bond
leaders marked the climax
of their mission to Israel
during which they studied
the country's economic and
industrial problems in
depth.
The mission began two
weeks ago in Brussels with
briefings from European
Economic Community (EEC
and Israeli officials there on
the prospects of export ex-
pansion following the new
Israel-EEC tariff agree-
ment.
In their pledge of solidar-
ity, the Bonds leaders un-
dertook "the fullest mea-
sure of our energies to
promote Israel's economic
independence by mobilizing
our synagogues, our com-
munal organizations,
women, youth, and every
other section of the Jewish
population for maximum
participation in the Israel
Bond program."
