- VIENNA (JTA) — The
conclusion of a peace be-

might- remove Austria's
reservations about buying
Israel's Kfir jet fighters,
government sources said
last week. Austria has been
interested in purchasing
18-24 Kfirs since 1977 to
bolster its air defenses kit
some critics feared that
such a - deal would hurt Au-
stria's trade relations with
the Arab world.
The Kfir, after extensive
tests, was considered the
best choice among offers
which also included the
French Mirage F-1, Swe-,
den's Sviggen and the U.S.
Northrop's F-5E.• But Au-
stria must, modernize its
ground control system be-
' fore it can utilize new
lighter planes.
Last. month, the govern-
revea led..plans to pro,-
duce Kfirs at an assembly
plant in Wiener Neustadt, a
few miles south of Vienna,
to reduce costs of production
and maintenance. Israeli or-
licials were annoyed that
Austria disclosed the plans
at an early stage because
this might jeopardize the
deal.

Lebanese Group
Hits Aid to Syria

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The U.S. was urged by the
largest American Lebanese
organization to eliminate
aid to Syria and- bring
Lebanon into "an alliance of
Egypt and Israel firmly in
the U.S. camp."
Syria "has wrecked" the
Camp David initiative,
Robert Basil, president of
the American-Lebanese
League, told. the House
Foreign Affairs Committee
last week which was consid-
ering the new foreign aid
program.
The proposed $60 million
in aid to Syria, he testified,
"is unjustifiable in light of
its destructive role to U.S.
and Lebanese national
interests and - goals." The
$32 million in propoSed cre-
dits to Lebanon, he said,
"insufficient to rebuil
strong central army essen-
tial to restoring Lebanese
sovereignty and control
over its own territory."
