Two leaders in the anti-
nuclear energy coalition,
Jane Fonda and her hus-
band Tom Hayden, said last
week that there is a tilt of
American foreign policy to
Arab causes through the
pressure of the major oil
companies and their friends
who depend on Saudi
Arabia and Kuwait for nine
million barrels of oil a day.
Hayden, who focussed on
this facet of U.S. policy,
stressed that there is "no
way the energy issue can be
disconnected from the crisis
in the Middle East and no
way the crisis in the Middle
East can be disconnected
from the energy crisis."
Hayden and Fonda ad-
dressed more than 900
people at Temple Shaarey

and Energy Issues of the
1980s" at a meeting spon-
sored by the citywide

Fonda and Hayden,
whose remarks were
greeted by frequent
applause, have been
touring the country to
speak out against the use
of nuclear energy and to
campaign for phasing out
nuclear plants, ending
American dependence on
oil and calling for a crash

program to develop solar
Hayden, who heads the
Campaign for Economic
Democracy, asserted that
there is a "coalition between
big oil and the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
The same establishment
that opposes radical change
suddenly finds itself in
secret but real alliance with
(PLO chief Yasir) Arafat he
said, adding "There's an in-
visible but far-reaching
lobby for the interests of
Arab states and the Arab
rich" in this country.
Both Fonda and Hayden
assailed the PLO as a
danger to Israel's security.
Fonda pointed out that "the
Covenant of the PLO still is
relying on the destruction of
Israel and I, with all my
heart and all I believe, want
Israel to be able to live in
peace and security and I will
stand for this as long as I
Hayden, in what many in
the audience felt was a
reference to the black lead-
ers who have been meeting
with PLO representatives
in this country and the
Mideast, said "some people
think that talking to the
PLO will solve the problem"
of the Mideast conflict. He
said he hoped that if these
people insist on talking to
the PLO they will convey

the view that Israel has a
right to exist and "will not
promote the idea that the
PLO can change American
public opinion by playing
one ethnic group against
Hayden, who visited
Israel earlier this year to
discuss implementing a
joint solar energy pro-
gram with California,
said the only way to re-
solve the Mideast crisis is
to change the energy pol-
icy of the U.S. "so it will
be good for American
working people and con-
sumers and also take the
pressure off Israel. It
would lead to a new situ-
ation in which (the fate)
of. Israel is not sacrificed
on the altar of the large
oil companies."
Calling for • an alignment
between American workers
and Israel, Hayden de-
clared: "Some would like us
to believe that Israel is a
burden (to the U.S.) and try
to convince the American

working people of that, but
American working people
have a common interest
with Israel in keeping world
politics from being domi-
nated by the oil companies."
He described Israel as a
"thriving scene of democ-
racy on the street level" in
the form of "very animated"

campaigning on behalf of

that I have been linked with

She praised American
Jews for their leadership
in progressive move-
ments during the McCar-
thy period. She said that
the "Jewish people have
a historic role" in the
struggle against all forms
of oppression.
She also stated that the
American left "has a stake
