Sadat Asked to Renew Talks

raeli Premier Menahem
Begin called on Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat on
Sunday to "renew the spirit
of Jerusalem and Ismailia."
Appearing on NBC-TV's
"Meet the Press," Begin
said this spirit was impor-
tant to the Middle East
peace process.
The Israeli Premier ex-
plained that at his meetings
with Sadat in Jerusalem
and Ismailia there were dis-
cussions despite "dif-
ferences" between the two.
He said there should be
negotiations without ul-
timatums. He noted that Is-
rael has proposed a peace
plan and it was ready to dis-
cuss any counter proposals
offered by Egypt.
Begin said he has "hope"
that the peace talks will be

Israel for the West Bank

He said the U.S. under-
stands the troops must be
there for Israel's "serious
security problem."

the five years since that

NEW YORK — The Mat-
tel Toy Co. has rejected a re-
quest by the American
Jewish Congress to halt
production and distribution
in West Germany of models
of Stuka dive bombers and
other swastika-emblazoned
Nazi war models.
Julius Schatz, director of
the Commission on Jewish
Life and Culture of the Con-
gress, said he had written to
the company in support of
efforts by Protestant and
Catholic leaders in West
Germany demanding that
the sale of the toys be stop-
In response, Schatz said,
he received a telephone call
from Spencer Boyce, vice
president of Mattel in Los
Angeles, who said the com-
pany would continue to pro-
duce the toys and sell them
in accordance with West
German law that permits
the swastika to be used in
such circumstances.

involved in an impromptu
debate with former Under-
secretary of State George
Ball who supports the sale
of planes to Saudi Arabia
and who has urged greater
concessions by Israel for
Ball, questioning Is-
rael's opposition to the
sale of planes to Saudi
Arabia, said rejection of
the sale would under-
mine the United States'
value as an honest broker
"who can bring the con-
testing parties together."
He also contended that
the U.S. could be of value
to Israel only if it had the
confidence of the Saudis,
"a moderate, anti-
Communist nation."
Dealing with this issue,
Begin said it would make

said repeatedly their forces
will be at the disposal of
other Arab states in the
event of a new war.
Addressing a closed meet-
ing of the Conference of
Presidents of Major Ameri-
can Jewish Organizations,
and answering questions,
the Premier said he had
heard reports of erosion in
American Jewish support
but that he had found in Los
Angeles, Chicago and New
York a genuine devotion to
Israel on the part of the
Jewish people and also a
deep sentiment for the
security of Israel among
Christian leaders he had
Asked whether Jewish
dissent from Israel's policies
could be equated to treason
to the Jewish cause, Begin
responded that all Jews
have a right to their opin-
ions and to express them.
But he said that he would
ask the dissenters to look to

their consciences and ask
themselves whether what
they said in public would
strengthen or weaken those
who negotiate for Israel.
Begin also reiterated that
he found no erosion in the
U.S. of public support for his
