further Israeli territorial
withdrawals, it will become
more, rather than less, dif-
ficult for Israel to strike an
adequate balance between
geography, demography
and military technology,
particularly if the flow of
U.S. weapon systems and
supportive equipment is re-
strained. Dr. Quandt would
do well to pay closer atten-
tion to -these points when
discussing the military bal-
ance and U.S. arms sales
policy in the Middle East."
Discussing his third
criticism of. Quandt's
views, Perry found
"some difficulty reconcil-
ing" Quandt's emphasis
on the regional, rather
than global, determi-
nants of the Arab-Israeli
conflict," with "Quandt's
suggestion that U.S. pol-
icy follow the guidelines
of the well-known peace
plan published by the
Brookings Instiiution"
which Perry noted
Quandt helped to author.
"In calling explicitly for
Israeli. withdrawal to the
June 1967 borders, as well
as for the establishment of
an independent Palestinian
state, the Brookings plan re-
judges — prior to Arab-
Israel negotiations — the
territorial concessions re-
quired by UN Resolution
242," Perry wrote. "This
position, it seems to me, is
not likely to inspire Israeli
confidence in American
peace-making activities."
Regarding Churba's "The
Politics of Defeat," Perry
wrote, Churba "contends
that the paramount Ameri-
can interest in the Middle
East is politico-strategic —
namely 'to prevent the area
from falling under the
domination of the Soviet
Union' and being manip-
ulated against the West.' "

To this, Perry added that
Churba's "central thesis is
that "Israel has been, and
hopefully will remain, an
invaluable strategic asset
for the U.S., serving as a
stable bastion against
Soviet influence and provid-
ing an alternative, via the
Israeli Defense Force, to di-
rect American intervention
— as in the September 1970
Jordan crisis . . . .
"In short, Israel stands as
America's only proven and
reliable ally in the Middle
East, and, in association
with Turkey, Iran and —
hopefully — a Christian
