"I call upon those who

mental standards of Jewish
responsibility to offer their
apology to the Jewish com-
munity."
Under date of June 14, a
letter to The Jewish News
from the Birmingham Tem-
ple, unsigned but identify-
ing the writers as "Bir-
mingham Temple Board of
Directors," defended its
right to invite Stone for a
lecture but took issue with
The Jewish News Commen-
tary criticizing the Stone

invitation because The
Jewish News last year had
not similarly criticized the
lecture Birmingham Tem-
ple sponsored by Rabbi Meir
Kahane who appeared in a
debate with Rabbi Wine.
The critical gripe accuses
Kahane of advocating vio-
lence against Arabs, imply-
ing that his tactics are like
the PLO's.
Defending its right to
sponsor controversial lec-
turers like Kahane and
Stone, the writers stated:
"We did not invite I.F.
Stone and Meir Kahane
to speak at our temple
forum because we
endorse their points of
view. Our congregation is
composed of members
whose political and
Zionist commitments
cover a wide spectrum of
opinions.
"We invited them because

we believe in the value of
free inquiry and open de-
bate. We do not believe that
only speakers who echo the
political opinions of the cau-
tious establishment should
be represented on Jewish
platforms. As Menahem
Begin can testify from his
own experience, the Dias-
pora forum is only eager to
welcome you after you have
achieved popular success.
"How can we make pro-
gress if we are only willing
to listen to ideas after they
have become respectable?
Where is the Jewish love of
freedom that our rabbis are
always proclaiming?
"We believe that the De-
troit Jewish community
should imitate the state of
Israel in its willingness to
allow all Jews who regard
themselves as patriots the
opportunity to speak and to
be heard."

PARIS (JTA) — Egyptian
Vice President Hosni
Mubarak said here that
France will continue to sup-
ply Egypt with arms and
planes and will play an
active role in organizing
Egyptian defense systems.
Mubarak, who met with
French President Valery
Giscard d'Estaing, is in
Paris to continue arms talks
with the French and to visit
the International Air Show
at Le Bourget. France is al-
ready supplying Egypt with
Alpha jet training and
ground support planes,
helicopters and electronic
equipment. The Egyptians
are also planning to start
first assembling and then
building the new Mirage-

2000 is a powerful and fast
combat plane, but far less
effective than its American
counterparts.
Several Arab states, in-
cluding Saudi Arabia, are
considering acquiring the
plane.
King Hussein of Jor-
dan said that Jordan will
soon buy French-made
Mirage combat planes
including the Delta
winnged Mirage-2000
and 4000 models. The
King, who watched an
overflight demonstration
of Mirages, said the Jor-
danian Air Force will
first acquire the F-1 and
later the newer models.
French officials believe
that unless Jordan obtains
large-scale financial assis-
tance from Saudi Arabia
and the other Arab oil pro-
ducing countries, it will not
be able to afford more than a
token Mirage force.
