WASHINGTON — Is-
rael is competing with the
United States in export-
ing some weapons sys-
tems throughout the
world, and in some cases
has imposed restrictive
provisions similar to the
Arab boycott against U.S.
companies selling certain
weapon systems abroad.
These charges were
made in a lengthy article
by Clarence A. Robinson
Jr. in the Dec. 13 issue of
Aviation Week and Space
technology magazine;
Robinson listed - a
number of weapons sys-
tems that the U.S. has
supplied to Israel with
—certain co-production
rights, including- the
General Electric J79 „jet
engine used in the F-4
Phantom.
Robinson
Israel, ' •
charges, is using the J79 in
its Kfir C2 fighter, which
is now being marketed
throughout the world,
without U.S. approval. The
U.S. retained production
rights to some high-
technology components of
the engine.
Robinson quoted 'U.S.
estimates that Israel will
export $500 million in
weapons in 1976 and more
than $1 billion in 1977.

Robinson cited the
Shafrir air-to-air guided
missile as a copy of - a
Raytheon missile, and
quoted U.S. experts as
saying one-third of the
Shafrir production run is
for export.
He also listed the Gab-

Israel May Halt
F-16 Purchases

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Is-
-rael is having second
thoughts about whether
it wants to purchase 250
F-16 jets from the United
States. The reason, as
hinted by Defense Minis-
ter Shimon Peres while in
the United States earlier
this month, is the steep
increase in the price of
the planes.
The F-16, which Israel
hopes will be the leading
warplane of the 1980s,
originally was to cost $7
million per unit, but now
has climbed to $11.5 mil-
lion. This is without the
necessary equipment and
accessories which may
bring the price of each
plane up to $20 million.
In addition, while the
U.S. has agreed in princi-
ple to sell the planes to Is-
rael,-it has not approved
allowing Israel to man-
ufactwe parts for the
plane. This has now ap-
parently become a major
obstacle to Israel's final
decision to buy the
planes.

Iraqis, Libyans
Leave Lebanon

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Israeli officials report
that the Iraqi and Libyan
Units of the inter-Arab
peace-keeping force have
departed from Lebanon
during the last few days
and Syrian forces have
not moved south of their
original positions.
There is a political Vac-
uum in southern Leba-
non, but Israel prefers
that to a Syrian or ter-
rorist presence near its
borders. The vacuum is
expected to be filled in 3-4
months by a newly
formed Lebanese army,
sources said.
They noted that since
Syria occupied Lebanon,
a tacit understanding has
developed between Israel
and Syria limiting their
movements in the com-
mon interest.
The U.S. was said to
have been apprehensive
over the situation in
southern Lebanon but its
fears have been allayed
by the Israel-Syrian un-
derstanding, the sources
said.

exist.
The committee's letter
identified organizations
"cooperating" in the con-
ference as "those com-
fortable working with the
following framework of
the conference: belief
that the dispute between
Jewish and Palestinian
nationalism is at the
center of the (Middle
East) conflict, support for
the right of the Palesti-
nians to an independent
state, inclusion of all par-
ties, including the PLO
and the USSR, in negoti-
ations, concern over arms
to the area, and recogni-
tion that the U.S. is the
leading supplier of arms."
No mention was made of
Soviet arms supplies to
the Arab states.
The letter said that the
committee's program "is
increasingly focused on
exploring options for
peace in the Middle East
with media and opinion-
m al; er s."
footnote to a
A
brochure accompanying
the letter expressed con-
cern that, the PLO may
not be able to participate
in negotiations•because of
the damage it sustained
in the Lebanese civil war.
"We view this as a set-
' back•for the prospects for
real peace because the
PLO is a primary party to
the conflict in that, it is
the most representative
organization of the Pales-
tinians," the committee
said.
, In addition, the commit-
tee circulated a copy of its
"questions and answers"
about the Arab-Israeli
conflict which it described
as "the first of several re-
sources which Will include
a primer on arms and a
book of Palestinian and Is-
raeli poetry."
.U.S. policy currently
bars any "substantive"
contact with the PLO
until it adheres to UN
Security Council Resolu-
tions 242 and 338. The Is-
raeli government's offi-
cial position is that it will
not have dealings under
any circumstances with a
terrorist organization,
tha avowed purpose of
which is to dismantle the
Jewish state.

ALBANY, N.Y. (JTA)
