NEW YORK (JTA) —
Menachem Begin, Knesset
leader of the Likud, warned
of the danger to Israel of the
creation of an "Arafatan
State" for Palestinians.
He was the principal
speaker at a dinner in trib-
ute to Sidney Green, finan-
cial adviser to the state of
Israel, which produced ap-
proximately $1 million in Is-
rael Bond purchases for the
strengthening of Israel's
economy.
An "Arafatan State"
would inevitably become a
base for Soviet arms aimed
at the heart of Israel which
might have to suffer mas-
sive casualties in a first at-
tack before Israel's defense
forces could go into action,
Begin declared. However, he
emphasized that Israel was
indestructible and would
remain so forever.

Israel's Safety in Its Platform

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The Demcwratic Platform
Committee opened its hear-
ings Monday for the 1976
Presidential campaign with

president George Meany
strongly calling for assur-
ances for Israel's security
and future. He also urged
the committee to safeguard
Soviet citizens wishing to
emigrate and condemned

this distinction results from
the fact that unlike Polish-

a later date.
The AFL-CIO also sair'
that it `"rejects the conteri
tion that international trade
negotiations are solely eco-
nomic rather than political
negotiations." These refer-
ences were aimed at the
Jackson-Vanik and Steven-
son provisions in the U.S.
Trade Act and Export-Im-
port Bank Law that re-
stricts U.S. trade benefits to
the Soviet Uniori unless it
eases its emigration policies
for Jews and others.

Striking at the Arab oil
weapon, Meany said: "We
believe that those who
would attempt to black-
mail the United States
through embargoes of es-
sential raw materials,
such as oil, must know
their actions will be met
swiftly by retaliatory eco-
nomic measures by this
country."

He added that "the econ-
omy of the United States
and the free world must not
be imperiled with impunity
by blackmailers."
