Gur: Israel Capable of Launching
Preventive Strike Against Arabs

Waldheim-Arafat Meeting Due

UNITED NATIONS
(JTA) — Secretary Gen-
eral Kurt Waldheim said
he will meet with Pales-
tine Liberation Organi-
zation leader Yasir
Arafat during his two-
Week swing through the
Middle East next month
aimed at reconvening the
Geneva peace conference.
Israel had no im-
mediate reaction on the
meeting with Arafat
which Waldh-eim an-
nounced at a press con-
ference. But Israeli Am-
bassador Chaim Herzog
noted that during his two
meetings with Waldheim
recently he emphasized
that Israel does not ac-
cept last December's
General Assembly reso-
lutions calling for a re-
newed Geneva confer-
ence with the participa-
tion of the PLO.
Herzog said his meet-
ings with Waldheim only
covered the UN official's
visit to Israel. He said he
stressed to Waldheim
that Israel's position is
that all Mideast negotia-
tions must be based on
Security Council reso-
lutions 242 and 338.

KURT WALDHEIM

Waldheim told the press
conference that it appears
now that "the circum-
stances are favorable for a
resumption of the nego-
tiating process (in the
Mideast). Indeed, there
would appear on all sides
to be an active desire to
find ways of reconvening
the Geneva conference
with the shortest possible
delay."

But Waldheim warned
that if the present oppor-
tunity is lost "the situa-
tion in the Mideast will
soon again be one of
danger and a threat to in-
ternational peace."

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
Chief of Staff Gen. Mor-
dechai Gur said Monday
that Israel's armed forces
were capable of launch-
ing a preventive strike
against the Arab states
and that in certain cir-
cumstances such a strike
would bring Israel both
military and political ben-
efits.
He also said that a sur-
prise attack on Israel by
all of the Arab confronta-
tion states could not be
ruled out but Israel's
forces could deal success-
fully with such an attack.
Gur, speaking on the
Army Radio, said that Is-
rael's military capabili-
ties gave it greater politi-
cal maneuverability. He
claimed that if Israel did
everything it could to
prevent war but the
Arabs appeared inclined
toward the war option, a
preventive strike by Is-
rael would be accepted by
the world.

There is no guarantee,
he said, that the Arabs will
not launch a surprise at-
tack as they did on Yom
Kippur, 1973.

The idea that the Arabs
need more time to arm is a
misconception since they
can shift their forces into
an offensive in a short
time, Gur said.
He said that Israel
must assume that such
an attack would involve
all of the Arab states —
Egypt, Syria, Jordan,
Saudi Arabia, Iraq and
possibly even Lebanon.
Israel has organized its
military forces in such a
way that it could turn
back ant attack on all
fronts, he said.

Gur said that the'impor-
tance of territory has not
diminished but in fact in-
creased in the age of long-
range missile warfare.

According to the Chief
of Staff, modern warfare
results in large numbers
of casualties, therefore it

from active participation
in political campaigns, al-
though they can attend
political meetings when
they are out of uniform.
Soldiers, of course, may
vote and the army will
make every effort to see
that all soldiers cast bal-
lots in the forthcoming
elections, Gur said.

MORDECHAI GUR

requires larger units and
territory is an important
factor when large forces
have to be maneuvered.
He said Israel's army
has been greatly
strengthened since the
Yom Kippur War. Rear
line manpower has been
diverted to field units.
The army has organized
more units and is training
every man for combat, he
said.
Gur said the army of
Jordan is developing into
the most modern of the
Arab armies and its
"strategic potential is in-
creasing. But it is doubt-
ful that Jordan would
start a war on its own, he
said.
