Blanchard Reports on Carter Meeting

The U.S.-Soviet declara-
tion of Oct. 1 on the recon-
vening of the Geneva
Middle East Peace Confer-
ence caused a storm of pro-
test in the U.S. because it
mentioned "Palestinian
rights" and failed to re-
affirm UN Resolutions 242
and 338 as the basis for the
conference.
Michigan Congressmen
James J. Blanchard (D-18th
District) was one of three
In-Jews
among a delega-
,
Jri of 27 Congressmen who
met with President Carter
last Thursday to discuss the
U.S.-USSR statement and
the U.S. Middle East policy.
Blanchard said the Presi-
dent, Vice President Mon-
dale and National Security
Council chief Zbigniew
Brzezinski met with the

Congressmen for 45 min-
utes, and that Carter was
firm in his statement that
there was no change in the
basic U.S. policy supporting
Israel.
Carter was quoted as
saying that he would rather
commit political suicide
than harm Israel.
Blanchard said Carter
told the meeting that the
USSR is co-chairman of the
Geneva Conference and the
U.S. would be foolish not to
include the Russians. Carter
said the U.S. "stands
behind" 242 and 338 and all
previous U.S. agreements
with Israel.
He said the USSR made
concessions by not referring
to "Palestinian rights" in
the join statement.
Blanchard quoted Carter

as saying that Israel is
aware of what the U.S. is
doing. even if they act like
they are unaware: that Gen-
eva is a first step; and that
the U.S. is seeking direct.
bilateral negotiations
between Israel and the Arab
states.
Carter insisted that there
would be no separate Pales-
tinian state, Blanchard said.
The President told the
meeting that even the Arab
leaders don't want a sepa-
rate state, in spite of what
they say publicly.
Carter said he has a close
friendship with all the lead-
ers of the conflicting par-
ties, and that he has
smoothed the previously
"rocky" relationship with
Menahem Begin of Israel.
Blanchard said members of
Congress have been trying
to give Carter room on the
Middle East and that is why
there has been little public.
criticsm from the House
and Senate. He said, though,
that there has been much
private criticsm, and that
the Congressmen were con-
cerned that key members
were not consulted before

the U.S.-USSR joint
statement.

Blanchard said that Car-
ter agreed to consult key
members before key issues
were decided or announced.
Blanchard said he is tak-
ing a "wait and see" atti-
tude on the entire issue of
U.S.-Israel relations. He
said he was greatly relieved
by Carter's statements at
the meeting, but was still
concerned by what he sees
as an Administration atti-
tude of considering Israel as
a U.S. vassel state "that
needs to be 'saved from
itself.
Meanwhile, about 1,500
persons gathered in
Lafayette Park opposite the
White House in a demon-
stration of support for
Israel. It was sponsored by
the Jewish Community
' Council of Greater Washing-
ton and drew large numbers
of youngsters from Hebrew
day schools and youths from
local universities as well as
members of Congress.
The principal speaker.
Sen. Donald Riegle (D-
Mich: ). urged the Carter
Administration to "put the
questions on the table" to
Israel's adversaries , and
"get straight answers."
Republican Congressional
leaders and the Republican
National Committee. mean,
while. also continued to
blast Carter for collaborat-
ing with the Soviet Union in
the Middle East. GOP
National Chairman William
Brock urged the Adminis-
tration to "reconsider"
its Middle East policy
"before more damage is
done to America's
national interest, fore-
most of which is the cause
of peace."

On Capitol Hill, the joint
Republican leadership of
the Senate and House issued

a statement declaring
that the U.S.-Soviet docu-
ment" goes a long way"
toward an "imposed solu-
tion" of the Arab-Israeli
conflict. The statement was
signed by Sen. Howard
Bakei. of Tenn. and Rep.
John Rhodes of Ariz.
Sen. Bob Dale (R-Kans.)
and Sen. Alan Cranston (D-
Calif. ) also criticized
Carter.
Carter later defended the
joint statement at a meeting
of the Democratic National
Committee, saying it dem-
onstrated the Soviet Union's
moderating tone on the
Middle East.
The U.S.-USSR joint state-
ment cost Carter Jewish
support at an upcoming
$1,000 - a - plate dinner in
Los Angeles. -
The World Organization of
Jews from Arab Countries
also protested in a letter to
Carter. stating that the Gen-
eva negotiations must con-
sider Middle East refugees
from all countries, not just
Palestinian refugees.
Meanwhile, West German
Foreign Minister Hans-
Dietrich Genscher wel-
comed the joint Soviet-U.S.
Mideast policy declaration.
During talks with visiting
Crown Prince Hassan Bin
Talal of Jordan, brother of
King Hussein, Genscher
said the statement corre-
sponded closely to prin-
ciples which Germany and
the European Economic
Community had repeatedly
outlined as the necessary
ingredients of a Mideast
peace.
According to official Ger-
man sources, Hassan told
Genscher the USSR-U.S.
document made the Arabs

more optimistic about peace
prospects. The Prince also
hinted, sources said. that
his country did not seek the
creation of an independent
Palestinian state, but rather
a Palestinian entity linked
with Jordan.
It was disclosed that
Israeli Foreign Minister
Moshe bayan has accepted
an invitation from Genscher
to visit Germany in the near
future. The two met briefly
at the UN General Assem-
bly last week.
