Rabin Promises Aid to Arabs, Says Disregard Koenig Report

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Premier Yitzhak Rabin
has promised Israeli
Arab leaders full help
from the government to
develop Arab settlements
and villages. He urged
them to forget the con-
troversial Koenig report
and get on with the job of
developing and improv-
ing their towns...Rabin's
- pledge was contained in a
letter from his advisor on
Arab affairs, Shmuel To-
ledano, to the heads of
local Arab municipalities
who had demanded the
dismissal of Yisrael
Koenig, the Interior
Ministry's commissioner
for northern Israel.
A secret report drafted
by Koenig and others re-

commending harsh treat-
ment of Arabs who did not
cooperate with the au-
thorities and measures to
reduce the Arab popula-
tion in Galilee, was leaked
to the press last month and
published in the Mapam
newspaper, Al Hamish-
mar.

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
Egypt has dismantled the
third and last of the mis-
sile sites it erected on the
east bank of the Suez
Canal, _apparently satis-
fying Israel's demand for
their removal on grounds
that the sites were a vio-
lation of the 1975 Sinai in-
terim agreement.
The Egyptians re-
moved the first two sites
last month following an
Israeli complaint lodged
with Gen. Ensio Siilas-
vuo, commander of the
United Nations Emer-
gency Force (UNEF) in
Sinai.
The third site remained
a point of contention but
was taken down after dis-
cussions between Siilas-
vuo and Egyptian military
authorities.
A dispute persists,
however, over Israel's
charges that the Egyp-
tians have more battal-
ions in the limited forces
zone than authorized
under the interim accord.

Richard Bolston has
been named "Volunteer
of the Year' by the
American Red Cross.
Lisa Braun, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Percy
Braun, has graduated
from the University of
Vermont where she re-
ceived her doctorate in
clinical psychology.
Marc Kippelman, son of
Mr. and Mrs. Jack Kip-
pelman, has become a
certified public accoun-
tant.
David A. Green, son of
Dr. and Mrs. Bernard ..
reed , has been named a
semifinalist in the. 1977

tion.

of a promised land, Israel.

THE FORD ADMINISTRATION
HAS BROKEN AMERICA'S
PROMISE TO ISRAEL...

THE FORD ADMINISTRATION
HAS IGNORED THE NEEDS
OF THE AVERAGE AMERICAN • • •

—When Gerald Ford took office, there were 5 million
persons unemployed. That number has increased to
7 1/2 million people. We've seen inflation soar, while
pressing needs in health care, housing and education go
unmet. We've seen a growing lack of confidence in our
country's institutions, arising from a lack of confidence in
our government.

YET IT HAS ACCOMMODATED
SPECIAL INTERESTS.

—The Ford Administration in 1975 refused to allow the
Commerce Department to disclose to Congress reports
by American corporations participating in the Arab
boycott, until Commerce Secretary Morton was cited for
contempt.

—In March, 1975, the Ford Administration "reassessed' .
America's relationship with Israel. This included a virtual
embargo of critical military aid, the outright stalling of
badly needed funds, and a verbal attack branding Israel as
"short-sighted" and "needlessly intransigent"



BUT THEY HAVEN'T BROKEN
THEIR PROMISE TO THE ARAB STATES
THAT THREATEN TO DESTROY HER.

—Since 1974, the Ford Administration has provided Arab
States on Israel's borders and in the Persian Gulf with $8
billion worth of military equipment.
—In July of 1975, the Ford Administration sought to
supply Jordan with highly mobile Hawk missiles and only
after intense Congressional pressure, assured that the
missiles would be non-mobile.

JIMMY CARTER'S COMMITMENTS ARE UNSHAKABLE AND
UNMISTAKABLE. THE PROMISE WILL BE KEPT.

On social services:

should not have to worry whether their

On Arab boycotts:

"We ought to resist all attempts by foreign
governments to impose racial or religious
discrimination on American citizens as the
price of doing business. The Department of
Commerce has shut its eyes to the boycott

"We need a nationwide health care delivery
system. The Carter Administration is
committed to freedom from fear of illness
and so is the Jewish community
throughout America. We know this job can
and will be done."

On the Arab oil embafgo:

declaration of war. We would respond by

On Soviet Jewry:
"I would not hesitate to use trade pressure to

encourage the Soviet Union to allow the
emigration of Jewish citizens. The
Jackson-Vanik Amendment which is now
the law of the land will be effectively
implemented by a Carter/Mondale
Administration."

On his religious beliefs:

On cultural neighborhoods:

"We can have an America that encourages
and takes pride in our ethnic diversity, our
religious diversity and our cultural diversity.
We know that our pluralistic heritage has
become the strength and vitality and
creativity that made our nation great and
will keep us great."

"I would make it clear to the Arab countries
that if they ever again try to blackmail this ..
country as they did in 1973, we would

by failing to collect information on alleged
offenses and failing to carry out a firm policy
against the boycott. All laws concerning
these boycotts should be vigorously
enforced and legislation should be passed to
make compliance with any secondary
boycott against Israel illegal."

Jimmy Carter received the coveted
Eleanor Roosevelt-Israel Humanities
award in 1973 from Israeli
Ambassador SimchzeDirOz.

"Our nation was founded by those who
demanded religious freedom and
respected religious diversity. I believe faith
is a deeply personal matter. One of the
basic tenets of mine is the complete
separation of Church and State. But I can
also say with pride that the very essence of
my faith is the very essence of the Jewish
faith. Its roots are imbedded in the Judeo-
Christian tradition of a well-integrated
family life, a fair and just legal order and the
principles of ethics and morality. Its highest

. ideals:am based-on love of one's fellow
man and respect for his personal beliefs."
