WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Central Intelligence Agency
Director George Bush de-
plored but did not deny a
statement attributed to
"senior" CIA officials that
Israel is estimated to have
10 to 20 nuclear weapons
"ready and available for
use."
According to Arthur
Kranish, a Washington
science writer, "no further
details were given" about
Israel's nuclear capability
by the officials at a "rare"
and "nonclassified" briefing
by the CIA at its headquart-
ers in Virginia March 11.
Kranish, editor of the
newsletter "Science Trends"
who attended the briefing
and wrote about it for the
Washington Post, said that
the briefing was attended
by some 150 persons and

Israel Gives Aid to Ecuador
for Reforestation Projects

QUITO, Ecuador (JTA) —
About three years ago Ecua-
dor initiated a series of refo-
restation projects and Coop-
erative agricultural
settlements with the aid of
Israeli advisers.
(Conscription
CAME
Agropecuaria Militar de
Ecuador) is modeled after
the Nahal system, in which
a small group of Israeli sol-
diers train together, work as
a volunteer unit on a kibutz
and when discharged form a
cooperative farming village.

was held for members of the
American Institute of
Aeronautics and Astronau-
tics.
Asked about his article,
Kranish said the CIA offi-
cials had asserted that in
advance of the Syrian and
Egyptian attacks on Israel
on Yom Kippur, 1973, the
CIA had at least one report
of the certainty of the at-
tack and other reports that
were less certain it would
take place.
The report of the cer-
tainty was discarded be-
cause of the disbelief that
Egypt and Syria could coor-
dinate their attacks as they
did, Kranish said he heard
the CIA officials say.
In a telephone statement
read by a CIA official to the
JTA, Bush said "We have no
comment on any of the sub-

mander of CAME, explained
that the 800 soldiers com-
prising the unit at any one
time are drafted for one
year's service. Three months
are spent in agricultural
training followed by an ad-
ditional three months at one
of several reforestation sites
or colonization areas.
The colonization zones
are centered in the oil
producing region on the
border with Colombia in
the town of Lagro Agria
and in Sangolqui, just
south of the capital city,
Quito.
Settlements composed of
80-100 demobilized CAME
soldiers and their families
radiate out from the central
army camps found in both
northern Ecuadorian towns.
As this level is reached in
one place new settlements
are established in nearby
areas, with support pro-
vided' by the same central-
ized camp.
Capt. Omri Negev, Israeli
tank cammander from Mos-
hav Bertuvia, is beginning
his fourth year as agricul-
tural adviser to the pro-
gram.
Projects like CAME have
worked to cement firm
bonds in the past and con-
tinue to offer further bene-
fits to both Ecuador and Is-
rael through cooperative
development action.

any classified information
might have been mentioned,
I accept full responsibility. I
am determined it will not
happen again."
Kranish said that those
attending were told not to
bring cameras or take
notes and not to talk to the
press. But he noted there
were several reporters,
including himself, present.

Israel Supporter
Invited to Egypt

PARIS (JTA) — One of
the biggest Paris supporters
of Israel's cause, singer En-
rico Macias, said that the
Egyptian Embassy had in-
vited him to come to Egypt
for a series of concerts.
Macias, who has often
been at the top of the
French box office, told the
French television that his
impresario had been in-
formed by the Egyptian
Embassy that he would be-
welcomed in Egypt because
peace with Israel was about
to come.
The Embassy would not
comment on the informa-
tion. Macias' impresario
said the singer would refuse
the invitation. Macias, born
in Algeria, came to France
with thousands of North Af-
rican Jewish emigrants
after Algerian independence
in 1962.

Bergman Pleads
Guilty to Federal
Fraud Charge

NEW YORK — Nursing
home operator Bernard
Bergman pleaded guilty last
week to a charge of conspir-
ing to defraud the federal
government of $1.2 million
in Medicaid funds and fail-
ure to file income tax re-
turns.

said "there was a clear
understanding beforehand
that the discussion was
private and not for publi-
cation or for further dis-
semination."
In his article, Kranish
recalled that last summer
there were press reports
that Israel had about 10
nuclear weapons. He said
last week's briefing was
apparently the first time
that CIA officials "made a
public estimate of Israel's
nuclear capability."
