`there's a hell of a lot
more Arabians in the
world than there is Jews.'
He also noted that 'the
Jewish media tears up
the Arab countries ftill
time.'
"Many newspapers pene-
trated Billy Carter's clown-
ing and boorishness and
asked what the Libyans
were seeking. None
explored, however, whether
the Billy Carter-Libyan tie
wasn't more than just an in-
dividual policy initiative.
"Throughout their visit,
the Libyans have stressed
their desire to foster .a better
understanding with the
United States. In recent
months, the Libyan gov-
ernment has played host to
scores of Americans — jour-
nalists, former diplomats
and congressmen — in an
attempt to dispel its image
of a purveyor of terrorism.
Several columns showing
Libya in a favorable light
were the result.
"And the Carter Ad-
ministration appears to
be moving toward ac-
ceptance of - the Libyan
image; last month it ap-
proved the sale of two 727
aircraft and 400 trucks to
Libya:"
Maryland free-lance
writer Rochelle Black
analysed the Libyan dele-
gation:

"The highest ranking
delegate among Carter's
guests is Ahmed al Shahati,
the head of the Foreign
Liaison Bureau of the. Gen-
eral Secretariat of the Li-
byan People's Congress. In a
recent interview in the San
Francisco Chronicle,
Shahati complained about
Libya's negative image in
the United States: 'That
image came about because
of a lack of understanding.
We are in a continuous
struggle with the Zionist
movement which controls
the American media. They
associate us with terrorists
and spoil our good image.'
Shahati, it seems clear,
writes the scripts for Billy
Carter."
"In the absence of nuclear
weapons, however, Libya
continues to prepare for any
future confrontation in a
two-pronged manner —
arming itself and arming its
terrorist clients. The Li-
byan armed forces haVe
been stocked — and accord-
ing to some military
authorities, overstocked —
with the latest Soviet
equipment. And-_ Libyan
largesse to terrorist groups
from Ireland to the Phil-
lipines continues unabated.
Of course, most of Libya's
support goes to Palestinian
terrorist groups."
The Jewish Commu-
nity- Council of Met-

ropolitan Detroit circu-
lated a fact sheet about
Libya this week, quoting
Qaddafi, listing•a record
of Libya's support for
terrorism and Libya's
persecution of Jews.
Included were the follow-
ing facts:
• The two terrorists who
carried out an attack in Is-
tanbul in August of 1976
reached their objective from
Libya. According to reports
of the news agencies from
Istanbul, the terrorists said
that they had been armed
and financed by the Libya
government.
• Libya served as the
first refueling stop for the
hijacked Air France plane
en route to Entebbe in July,
1976. In addition, it was
Libya which accorded a
heroes' state funeral to the
murderers of
Israeli
athletes in Munich in 1972.
• In February, 1970
Qaddafi's regime confis-
cated all Jewish property
and cancelled all debts owed
to Jews since June 5, 1967
(Libyan Law Number 14,
Feb. 7, 1970). Jewish claims
for compensation totaling
millions of dollars were can-
celled (Libyan Law Number
57, May 9, 1970). Homeless-
Jews were herded into spe-
cial camps. Today, Libya's
ancient Jewish community
has been all but obliterated.

Evron Calls Saudis 'Road Block'

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Israel's Ambassador to the
U.S., Ephraim Evron,
charged Tuesday that
"Saudi Arabia is the major
factor which has delayed
the signing of a peace treaty
between Israel and Egypt"
and called on "the American
government to take new in-
itiatives, especially in view
of the developments in Iran,
to prevail upon Saudi
Arabia to endorse the
agreements previously for-
mulated at Camp David."

TEL AVIV (JTA) — After
a 17-hour flight from Man-
ila, 102 Vietnamese refu-
4
gees arrived at Ben-Gurion
Airport Wednesday morn-
ing. They were greeted by
Absorption and Housing
Minister David Levy who
headed a large delegation of
Israelis and former Viet-
namese refugees who set-
tled in Israel.
"We shall provide you
ad
with solid land to step on,"
Levy told the newcomers,
referring to the weeks they -
had been stranded abroad a
ship in Manila Bay.
The refugees, with tears
in their eyes, thanked the
minister and the dele
tion. After a short ceremo
at the airport they were
taken by buses to Affulah
•-4
where they will stay for
some time at a new immig-
rants absorption center.
Even before their arrival in
Al.P1
Affulah, housewives there
were preparing cookies and
4
sweets for the new guests.
Rooms were being prepared
and decorated with flowers
and tables set with bowls of
fresh fruit.
The Vietnamese already
in Israel will help the new- .
corners - during their first
period of adjustment.
