VOTE Z.O.A. SLATE 3

in Zionist Congress Elections

Men and Women Zionists
of America

I

n Israel the Likudgovernment, headed by
Menahem Begin, is leading the country toward
genuine peace. The government's new economic
policy, fashioned by Finance Minister Simcha Er-
lich, aims at a new deal for all Israelis.

Thus, Z.O.A. policies have been vindicated.

Our historic faith in the principles of liberal democ-
racy and free enterprise has triumphed in the Jewish
State.

In America, the Z.O.A. is in the forefrOnt of the
struggle against forcing Israel into surrendering its
vital security positions. The Israel government
needs our support and endorses our battle for public
opinion:

"The'Z.O.A. was the only organization that stood
firmly behind us," says Defense Minister Ezer
Weizman.

"We are all proud of your stand," cables Prime
Minister Menahem Begin.

Endorse Israel's New Direction!

Your vote in the Zionist Congress elections
is fundamentally a political act!

Zionists in America are now electing delegates -co the
29th World Zionist Congress, an assembly equiva-
lent to a parliament of the Jewish people.

Charity alone is not enough!

Israel's new government needs responsive leader-
ship in the World Zionist. organization. A vote for
Z.O.A. — Slate 3 — will assure this result.

The record of the Zionist -
Organization of America is- clear.

VOTE Z.O.A.
