No Concussion Bombs for Israel

WASHINGTON (JTA)
-- The White House an-
nounced last week that
the United States will not
sell concussion bombs,
known as CBU-72, to Is-
rael. Presidential Press
- Secretary Jody Powell
said that decision was re-
lated to a U.S. reassess-
ment of its need for the
CBU for its own forces
and that the U.S. has no
intention of selling it to
any country. •
He said that two other
of the four advanced
weapons systems prom-
ised Israel by President
Ford last October would
be provided. These are
M-60 taftks and 155 mm.
Howitzers.
But the FLIR, a
ward-looking infra-red
ar system promised by
d, is also being with-
:1* held, Powell said. He ad-
ded, however, that "in-
tensive discussions about
this night vision radar
apparatus in under way" .
with Israel.

0r



Powell said that "no
vow" was made by the Car-
ter Administration that it
would not review or alter
decisions made by the. pre-
vious Administration.

He said the decision on
the CBUs is not inconsis-
tent with what President
Carter has said previ-
ously and neither it is in-
consistent with his oft re-
peated commitment to
the security of Is-
rael.State Department
spokesman Frederick Z.
Brown told reporters la-
ter, in reply to queStions,
that the decision not to
sell CBUs to Israel was
made earlier last week
but Carter and Secretary
of State Cyrus Vance felt
it was desirable to make
no announcement until
Vance communicated the
decision personally to the
Israeli government.
Arab governments,
notably Egypt, strongly
opposed the transfer of
concussion bombs to Is-
rael and their views ap-
parently were shared by
influential elements in
the State and Defense
Departments.
Some observers said
the denial of the bombs to
Israel was a tactic Vance
used to indicate to Arab
leaders the Carter Ad-
ministration's intention
to be objective in its rela-
tions with Israel and the
Arab states.

Winter; president of the

mittee which had ar-
ranged the event, de-

dent of Bnai Brith, and
Joel H. Levy, a member of
the executive committee of
the AJCongress, informed
Lopez Portillo 'that the
tour program to Mexico
operated by their organi-
zations had • been
reinstated.

.

At the conclusion of the
conversation, Winter,
speaking one behalf of the
group, expressed. the
hope that the traditional
riendly relationship be-
ween the United States
and Mexico had been
reinforced. Winter pre-
sented the Mexican Pres-
ident with a two-volume
