THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Weicker Denounces M.E. Policy

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
President Carter and his
national security advisor,
Zbigniew Brezezinski, were
bitterly attacked for their
Middle East policies and, in
turn, were personally de-
fended in an unexpected
confrontation of national
political figures at the 19th
annual policy conference of
the American-Israel Public
Affairs Committee (AIPAC)
at the Washington-Hilton
Hotel Monday night.
The attack was launched
by Sen. Lowell Weicker
(R-Conn.) who, in effect, ac-
cused the Administration
and Brzezinski in particular

of using Jews as scapegoats.
"We know from history," he
said, "that time and time
again, when national lead-
ers run into difficulties,
they found it convenient to
blame their problems on the
Jews 'and we know the re-
sults. If there is a meaning-
ful distinction between
those historical proclivities
and the signals which
Brzezinski is sending, I
don't know what"they are."
Weicker's remarks were
interrupted 26 times by
applause from the 1,000
AIPAC members and
guests. It was especially
thunderous when he de-
clared, "If I were President
and I had a national
security advisor who sin-
gled out American Jews as
an impediment to my
policies, I would have his
resignation before sundown
and his reputation for
breakfast."

Sen. Daniel P. Moynihan
(D-NY) also defended the
integrity of President Car-
ter and Brzezinski and the
intentions of the Adminis-
tration in the Middle East.
It was Weicker's conten-
tion that Brzezinski be-
lieves "that world order
politics" should "replace
balance of power politics"
and that this "requires that
the U.S. disengage from its
historic alliance with Is-
rael."
According to Weicker,
"The Carter Administra-
tion, from its inception, has
deliberately pursued a pol-
icy of confrontation with the
government of Israel" that

Lipschutz said. He
added, "America will
never abandon Israel,
never," a remark that
drew applause.

Responding to
Weicker, Moynihan pref-
aced the prepared speech
he was scheduled to de-
liver with a defense of the
Administration's integ-
rity. "The great difficul-
ties" between Israel and
the U.S., he said, "is not
the sincerity of Carter, of
(Secretary of State
Cyrus) Vance or
Brzezinski nor the weak-
ness of their desire" to
achieve a Middle East
settlement. "They are
men of transparent
honor," Moynihan said,
recalling President Car-
ter's pledge to Begin on
the White House lawn
last week that America's
friendship for Israel "will
never waver."

Moynihan also referred to
Leonard Fein's comments in
Moment magazine that
Brzezinski holds U.S.-
Israeli ties to be "deeply
binding moral ties."
Weicker's speech was
heavily denounced Tuesday
by Senators Abraham
Ribicoff (D-Conn.) and
Jacob Javits (R - NY).
