Dayan Urges A Iiya for Youth

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Former Defense Minister
Moshe Dayan urged that
Diaspora Jews send their
young people to Israel "even
if only for short periods" in
order to "fire them with
national pride" and thereby
contribute to the continuity
of the Jewish people.
Only Israel can "inject
into them a feeling of being
Jewish." Dayan told the.
World Assembly of Jewish
War Veterans in Jerusalem.
He claimed that except for
the Orthodox, it was becom-
ing increasingly difficult to
distinguish between Jews in
Western countries and their
non-Jewish neighbors in ei-
ther their lifestyles or
thought processes.
Jewish Agency treasurer
Leon Dulzin, addressing the
same session of the war vet-
erans' assembly, refuted
Soviet claims that aliya was
down because Soviet Jews
were no longer interested in
emigrating to Israel. Ac-
cording to Dulzin, there are
some 160,000 visa applica-
tions pending in the USSR
but only 9,000 Soviet Jews
were permitted by the au-
thorities to leave during
1975.
He said about 50,000 af-
fidavits were sent from
Israel to Jews in the Soviet

Union in 1975 at the re-
quest of Jews seeking exit
visas. He said the affida-
vits bore witness to familiy
ties between the appli-
cants and their relatives in
Israel and helped people
leave under the family reu-
nification program which
the Soviets say they honor.
Dulzin disclosed that
since 1970, 120,000 Jews left
the Soviet Union and 106,-
000 of them came to Israel.
Of the latter, about 5,000
left subsequently to settle
elsewhere. Dulzin said the
World Conference on Soviet
Jewry to be held in Brussels
this month, would seek to
open the gates wider for
Russian Jews wishing to
leave.

U.S. Plane Sale
to Egypt Denied

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
A U.S. State Department
spokesman has denied re-
ports that the U.S. has pro-
jected the sale of six C-130
military transport planes to
Egypt. "At the time of the
Sadat (President Anwar
Sadat of Egypt) visit (last
fall), we said we would con-
sult Congress before selling
military equipment to
Egypt," the spokesman said.

sador to the United Nations,
Roberto Rosenzweig Diaz, is
of part Jewish ancestry.
Ironically, his previous post
was Mexico's Ambassador
to Egypt. The Ministdr of
Tourism, mentioned above,
is also partly Jewish. And
the former Foreign Minis-
ter, Emilio 0. Rabasa has a
Jewish mother whose
maiden name is Mishkin.
An Israeli delegation ar-
rived in Mexico two weeks
ago to negotiate the imple-
mentation of agreements
for cultural and scientific
cooperation between Mexico
and Israel that were ar-
ranged last August between
President Echeverria and
Premier Yitzhak Rabin in
Jerusalem. The delegation
was warmly received.
But Mexico's Jews are
still uneasy. According to
the correspondent, Mexico's
flirtation with the Arabs,
while attempting to reas-
sure Israel, resembles the
precarious performance of a
tight-rope walker. He may
fall, and Mexico's Jews are
wondering, which way?

Allon Visit Planned

Allon's visit is viewed as
an important step in com-
pleting the rapprochement
between Israel and Mexico.

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
Ephraim Evron, deputy di-
rector general of the For-
eign Ministry, flew to Mex-
ico last week to prepare for
Foreign Minister Yigal Al-
lon's visit to that country in
February.
