Jewish and Congressional Leaders
Join Protest on Planes to Egypt

ABA Backs Genocide Pact

WASHINGTON — American Jewish leaders, together with non-Jewish friends of Israel,
pursued serious efforts this week to oppose the sale of U.S. C-130 troop transport planes to
Egypt, and the possible later sale of F-5 fighter planes, anti-tank missiles and helicopters.
Congressman William S. Broomfield of Michigan met with President Ford Tuesday
evening for more than an hour and ex—Pressed his own concern as well as that of Michigan
constituents over what is considered a serious threat to Israel's security in planned supply
of arms for Egypt. Rep. Broomfield related to the President the protests that were expressed
over the weekend at the sessions of the executive committee of the Zionist ,Organization of
America, which were conveyed to him by the Michigan delegate to that conference, Detroit
Zionist leader Louis Panush.

WASHINGTON (JTA) — The overwhelming vote in the House of
Delegates of the American Bar Association calling for the ratification
of the United Nations Convention on Genocide has been hailed by Sen.
Jacob K. Javits (R-NY) as a change in the association's position "of great
significance."
-Javits observed that the treaty, adopted by the UN General Assem-
bly 27 years ago to make genocide an international crime, was "con-
ceived in ashes of the Nazi Holocaust." Seventy-eight nations have rati-
fied the treaty, but not the U.S. A filibuster ended- an attempt to
consider it in the Senate last year. (See Editorial, Page 4).

A New Menace to the State of Israel
from 'Pacifists' and 'Lovers of Peace'

PURIM 5736

BY ROBERT ST. JOHN

(Special to The Jewish News)

WASHINGTON — This is to warn Israel and her supporters in the United States to be pre-
pared for a concerted attack from a new source — from men and women of goodwill scattered
across the country who are interested in peace — at no matter what cost to Israel.
In a letter soliciting signatures for an advertisement to be placed in The New York Times (and
also $40 from each signer), Allan Solomonow, a Jewish liberal, discloses that the organization
which he has headed for years, the Committee for New Alternatives in the Middle East, is about to
"fold its tents," not because of thetfailure of its cause but because of its success; because "following
long years of seed-planting by CONAME . . . the Middle East is now coming out of the closet . . .
We are transferring our resources to the Fellowship of Reconciliation (an organization made up
largely of Quakers) which has undertaken a creative and major initiative in Middle East program
work."
The ad for which signatures were being sought begins with the statement: "As Ameri-
sass who have worked for peace and social justice, we are profoundly disturbed by our gov-
ernment's policy in the Middle East."
After expressing concern "for both the Palestinians and the Israelis," the ad challenges Ameri-
can foreign policy and calls for the "inclusion - of the PLO as an essential party to the negotiation of
a full and lasting peace." It also calls for "full and open congressional hearings on U.S. policy in
the Middle East" aimed at bringing about "a redirection of pur policies."
What is most disturbing to those of us who are also interested in disarmament, an end to
terrorism and some start on the long road toward real peace, but at the same time are interested in
the survival of Israel as a Jewish state, is that in the name of pacifism, non-violence and peace, the
sponsors of the ad have been able to obtain the signatures of many men and women who have
worked long and valiantly as pacifists for a non-violent solution of the world's problems.
It is indeed ironic that the PLO has managed to win over such people as Martha Friedlander,
'person of the Fellowship of Ethical Pacifists; Barton Hunter, executive secretary of the Fel-
ship of Reconciliation; Homer Jack, World Conference on Religion and Peace; Rabbi Michael
- - Robinson, Temple Israel of Northern Westchester; Henry
Schwarzschild, American Civil Liberties Union; Rabbi Gerald Ser-
otta, director, City College of New York Hillel Foundation; Rabbi
Arnold Jacob Wolf, Yale Hillel Foundation director; Arthur Was-
kow, Institute for Policy Studies; Father Charles Angell, associate
director, Graymoor Ecumenical Institute. These are just a few of
the first 40 names affixed to the ad.
As these pacifists and disciples of brotherhood call for rec-
ognition of the PLO and the seating of its delegates at a peace
conference, one is tempted to ask them a few questions:
Have they forgotten that ignobel day in 1.974 when Yasir Ara-
fat, leader of the most unprincipled gang of terrorists the modern
world has ever known, A pistol holster on, his hip, swaggered to the
podium of the world organization that had been founded to try to
