Court Ruling on Elections Will Delay Zionist Congress

Council last July to waive
elections. in those coun-
tries where 90 percent ,of
the Zionist consistency
agreed to a single slate.
The Court did not say
that the Congress would
have to be postponed, but
the time required to hold
elections in the par-
ticipating countries
makes a postponement
inevitable, according to
Yosef Almogi, chairman
of the WZO and Jewish
Agency Executives. Al-
mogi said that the Con-
gress would probably be
held next summer.
Meanwhile, the WZO
xecutive reminded all
Zionist federations that if
the Congress is postponed
for more than six months,
new elections would be re-
quired in countries that
have already held elec-
tions. Elections to the 29th
World Zionist Congress
have been held in seven
countries this year, and 11

fusal was a matter of
principle and that since
the Dimona reactor was
built with French know-
how but no American as-
sistance, Israel did not
feel obligated to open it to
inspection by the Ameri-
can legislators.
Rabin was more flexible
when the Senators raised
the question of Israel's re-
fusal so far to sign the In-
ternational Nuclear Non-
Proliferation Treaty.
Rabin said that Israel fa-
vored the treaty in princi-
ple but _would sign it only
when all other parties con-
cerned agreed to sign a
joint agreement. This is
not possible under the
present political cir-
cumstances. Arab signa-
tures to the document con-
tained a clause saying it
did not apply to Israel.
The Senators' visit is
viewed as one step in the
long process of purchas-
ing a nuclear power plant
that former President
Nixon offered to sell Is-
rael during his trip to the
Middle East in 1974.
Nixon made the same
offer to Egypt. It was
learned after his resigna-
tion from the Presidency
that he had made the of-
fers to both countries
against the advice of Sec-
retary of State Henry A.
Kissinger and other ad-
visers.
Israel eventually ag-
reed to the strict controls
that were a condition of
the American sale and
would apply to the Egyp-
tian reactor as well. But
the entire matter seems
to be hanging fire at
this time in view of
President-elect Jimmy
Carter's assertion that he
would make tighter con-
trols over nuclear de-
velopment one of the key
points of his foreign pol-
icy.
During their visit, the
Senators visited the Yad
Vashem Holocaust Me-
morial, met with fac-
ulty members of the
Hebrew University and
took part in a forum at the
Institute of International
Relations.

Media Overplayed Dimona

an agreement between
Israel and her neighbor&
that would keep the area
free of nuclear weapons.
Sen. Glenn and Sen.
Howard Baker Jr. (R-
Tenn.) had originally re-
quested permission for
the group to visit Dimona
from Washington when
the Middle East trip was
still in the planning
stages. It was turned
down by Israel at that
time but the Senators re-
peated their request at a
meeting with Premier
Yitzhak Rabin when they
arrived Sunday. Rabin
said no. Israeli officials
explained that the re-

Court's criticism of
Navon was justified.)
