THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

`Friendship for Israel' is Carter's Mideast Policy Defense

WASHINGTON (JTA)—
President Carter's address
at a Democratic Pary fund-
raising dinner in Los
Angeles Saturday night was
seen as outlining the curse
his Administration spokes-
men will take in coping-with
the tide of uneasiness
among Israel's sympa-
thizers over his Middle East
policy.
The White House issued
the transcript of his

that showed "applause"
welcomed his remarks that
"my ocerwhelming com-
mitment and the com-
mitment of the nation is to
guarantee a strong, inde-
pendent, secure and peace-
ful Israel" and when he
repeated the statement he
made to Congressmen at the
White House after the
Soviet-American Mideast
declaration that he would
"rather commit suicide
than to hurt the nation of
Israel."
`If I should ever hurt
Israel, which I won't," the
President said, "I think
political suicide would
almost automatically result
because it is not only our
Jewish citizens who have
this deep commitment to
Israel but there is an over-
whelming support through
the nation because there is
a common bond of corn-

Meanwhile, Carter's
Middle East policy has
come under severe attack
from the Democratic
Party's Senate Whip while a
leading Republican Senator
warned that "there could be
a crunch, a cooling in U.S.-
Israeli relations relative to
the Geneva Conference."

PLO Agent Given
Unrestricted Visa

WASHINGTON (JTA)—
The U.S. government, with-
out public notice, has for the
first time provided an offi-
cial of the Palestine Liber-
ation Organization, Mah-
moud Salem Darwish, with
a visa to enter this country
with freedom to go and do
as he pleases. Up to now,
PLO members have been
restricted to New York and
for United Nations business
only.
Issuance of the visa
became known when it
appeared without attribu-
tion in the Washington Star.
Sources said Darwish
appeared in Detroit last
weekend at the convention
of Arab American Univer-
sity Graduates.

White House Opens Doors
to Jewish Editors and Leaders

WASHINGTON (JTA)—
Doors are opening wider
and more often at the White
House and the State Depart-
ment these days for Jews
concerned over the Carter
Administration's course in
the Middle East. They meet
Administration officials
eager to persuade them that
the President's com-
mitments to Israel "remain
unchanged:"

Ostomy surgery
no ban to a full social life

The person who has had a colostomy
or other ostomy operation can—and
should--expect a normal business,
family, and social life. As professional
pharmacists who stock Hollister ostomy
products, we can help assure this per-
son's comfort, convenience, and peace
of mind.
Hollister has a one-piece, disposable
appliance for each of the ostomies-
including urinary diversion. All are

the person who has already suffered
skin damage.

rules in the middle of a life-
or-death game" to expect
Israel to give up territory
on the West Bank for the
creation of a Palestinian
state. He said that "no such
development should be
expected from a reconvened
Middle East Peace Confer-
ence in Geneva. A PLO-
dominated Palestinian state
on Israel's border would be
a loaded gun aimed at
Israel's head at point-blank
range," he said.
Cranston had been
strongly supportive of the
Carter policy until the
Soviet-American statement
was disclosed.
Meanwhile, Sen. Jacob K.
Javits (R - NY) pointed out
that "while Israel can count
on full U.S. support respect-
ing its national security it
cannot count on the full sup-
port of the U.S. at the
Middle 'East negotiating
tables under policies
adopted by the Carter
Administration."
So far, Jordan is the only
Arab - country to officially
respond to the U.S.-Israel
working paper on reconven-
ing the Geneva talks. The
U.S. State Department
would not disclose the
response.
Discussions are contin-
uing with Egypt and Syria
on the paper. According to
reports from Cairo, Egyp-
tian Foreign Minister
Ismail Fahmy said Egyp-
tian President Anwar Sadat
had requested President
Carter to amend the paper
to include the PLO as a par-

Ten top officials of the
American Jewish Com-
mittee conferred for 90 min-
utes at the White House last
week where Vice President
Walter Mondale was pre-
sent for most of the time. A
few days before, President
Carter himself casually
entered a discussion Robert
Lipshutz his counsel and a
confidant, was having with
six Jews.

Secretary of State Cyrus
Vance met Wednesday with
the Conference of Presi-
dents of Major American
Jewish Organizations
headed by Rabbi Alexander
Schindler.
The 70 Jewish leaders pre-
sent were described as frus-
trated and angry. One said
the Administration, if noth-
ing else, was unifying the
Jewish community.

Martin Citrin, president of
the Jewish Welfare Feder-
ation of Metropolitan
Detroit, attended Wednes-
day's meeting. Vance was
also scheduled to meet with
a number of Jewish editors
at 11 a.m. today at the State
Department. Philip Slomov-
itz, editor and publisher of
The Detroit Jewish News
was in Washington for that
meeting.

ticipant. Fahmy said that
this was Egypt's view fol-
lowing agreement with PLO
chairman Yasir Arafat.
A similar view was pre-
sented by Saudia Arabia's
foreign minister in talks
with President Carter this
week.
Israeli officials do not
expect the Arabs to approve
the paper without change.
But they believe that with
American encouragement,
the Arabs, could be brought
to accept the working
paper's principles and that
subsequent haggling over
verbal formulations could
lead to the resumption of
the-Geneva talks.
The paper, in its present
form, represents Israel's
basic position for going to
Geneva: no participation by
the PLO; - no negotiations
over a Palestinian state;
and no automatic with-
drawal by Israel to its 1967
borders. If these principles
remain unaltered, Israel is
prepared to consider pro-
posals for changes and
amendments to the working
paper, officials say.

Government sources
acknowledged that there
has been an exchange of
correspondence in recent
days between President
Carter and Menachem
Begin. They insisted that
the correspondence con-
tained re-affirmations of the
U.S. commitment to Israel
and did not demand that
Israel agree to changes in
the working paper.

Government spending
keeps increasing.
Don't you as homeowners
have ideas to keep it at a
minimum?
A CHARTER REVISION
would be beneficial here.
