Fisher-Ford Meeting Focuses on Aid to Israel During Transitional Period

1

Gen. Brent Scowcrift, Sec-
retary of State Henry Kis-
singer's successor as assist-
ant to the President on
internal security affairs,
attended the meeting.
Fisher, chairman of the
Jewish Agency Board of
Governors, afterwards said
that the President "listened
intently" when he suggested
that something ought to be
done about the Israeli-
American flareup over the
transitional quarter aid be -
tween the current and new
U.S. fiscal years. The Presi-
dent, Fisher emphasized,
gave no indication to him
one way or the other on the
Administration's future
course on the issue.
The Administration has
thus far refused to go along
with a Senate formula that
would add about $800 mil-
lion to the 1976 fiscal year
budget to account for the
three months prior to Octo-
ber 1 when the new fiscal
year 1977 begins. The cur-
rent year ends June 30.
Israel would receive
about $550 million, Egypt
$175 million and other
countries, including Syria
and Jordan, equally pro-
portional funds from a 25
percent allocation of the
1976 appropriations for
"the fifth quarter." With
the President having

legislation, Congress has
postponed its decisions
until its return next week
from the Easter recess.
Meanwhile, Sen. Jacob K.
Javits (R.-NY), currently
touring the Middle East,
arrived in Israel from Egypt
where he had lengthy meet-
ings with President Anwar
Sadat over the weekend. In-
terest in Israel, however,
centers mainly on what the
Senator will report to Is-
raeli leaders about the pri-
vate meeting he had with
President Ford prior to leav-
ing Washington at which
the $550 million transitional
quarter aid issue is under-
stood to have been dis-
cussed.
Israeli circles in Washing-
ton reported that the meet-
ing may have been the first
sign that Ford will relent in
his opposition to foreign aid
funding for the three
months between fiscal 1976
and fiscal 1977 that would
give Israel an additional
$550 million. According to
some sources, Ford inti-
mated to Javits that he
would be amenable to a
comprise that would provide
Israel with half of its aid
request.
It also was reported that
Secretary of State Kissinger
said that the Ford Adminis-
tration's opposition to for-
eign aid funding for the
transitional quarter was not
based "on foreign policy
grounds" but "substantially
on domestic grounds."
With respect to the addi-
tional U.S. aid that Israel
would receive for the three
months between fiscal 1976
and fiscal 1977, Kissinger
said that studies by the
Administration led it to con-
clude that Israel's needs are

"not so great as we had
thought."
He said the change of
mind was "essentially" a
difference of economic anal-
ysis, primarily between the
U.S. government's Office of
Management of the Budget
and the Israeli government.
Kissinger added that the
U.S. has no "legal obliga-
tion" to provide transitional
quarter funding but it is a
question of "real need."
Kissinger also predicted
that "a year or so down the
road a basic strategy will
begin to emerge" on a solu-
tion to the Arab-Israeli con-
flict.
He made his statement in
the course of defending his
step-by-step diplomacy in
the Middle East over the
past three years. He ap-
peared to indicate that the
would put forward the
"basic strategy" aimed at a
"comprehensive solution."
Kissinger said that the
differences between his
views and those of his crit-
ics were "very signifi-
cantly" the question of
timing. He said that "at
some point the comprehen-
sive approach was needed
instead of the step-by-step
approach.
Kissinger said that at the
time of the Yom Kippur
War if "we -put forward a
comprehensive scheme we
thought the danger of fail-
ing would sharpen the
(Arab oil) embargo, increase
Soviet domination" in Arab
countries, including Egypt,
and "enhance radicalism" in
the area.
The step-by-step ap-
proach, he said, has "given
us time to think and a more
comprehensive solution. I
think it is now generally
agreed — and Israel agrees

too — that the time for indi-
vidual steps with individual
countries is probably over

and we now have to work on
a wider canvas," Kissinger
said.
