speak out anti-Semitically.
The orchestration of
the anti-Israel, anti-
Zionist and anti-Jewish
campaign by the Soviet
Union was exposed and
assailed by the confer-
ence participants.
It was a learning confer-
ence for the participants
and their communities to
know the truth and a
mobilizing movement to as-
semble all available forces

to overcome the menace.
The climax of the revela-
tions came in a cabled mes-
sage from Israel's Prime
Minister Menahem Begin
who described the mounting
hatred against Jewry and
called for a "counter-
offensive" to prevent even
more menacing growth of
the bigotries that threaten
the very life of Israel.
It was under the general
chairmanship of Gordon B.
Zacks of Columbus, the
prominent philanthropic
leader, that this historic

conference functioned as an
organizing force for Israel's
defense. Under the leader-
ship of ZOA President Ivan
Novick, World General
Zionist President Jacques
Torczyner, and their associ-
ates, a new spirit was intro-
duced to confront the anti-
Semites and to battle for
truth in American and
world circles.
Biden told the 400
people at the opening
session that the erosion
of support for. past
Mideast positions in-
volved changing condi-

scene" from which U.S.
Middle East policy "is not

ernment. He said, "I per-

in this regard."
Declaring that "the sur-'
vival of Israel is directly
connected to the survival of
America," Biden said "the
creation of a PLO state" in
the West Bank and Gaza "is
contrary to U.S. interests.
As supporters of Israel we
are uneasy because we have
become unsure of the fun-
damental commitment of
the American people and
the lack of continuity of the
Carter Administration" in
its Middle East policy.
He said also that "there
has been a breach among
old allies — the black and
Jewish communities — and
this breach runs very deep,"
a reference to overtures to
the PLO by some American
black leaders, including
some leaders of the South-
ern Christian Leadership
Conference which, Biden
said, "is being naive about
what is at stake in the Mid-
dle East."
Leon Dulzin, chairman of
the Jewish Agency and
World Zionist Organization
Executives, said "the case of
the Palestinians" had be-
come "one of the greatest
distortions of modern his-
tory," a development he said
stemmed from the fact that
"we in Israel are responsible
for not explaining properly"
that case.
He said "200,000 is the
maximum number of
Arabs who lived on both
sides of the Jordan River
prior to the first wave of
Jewish immigration. It
was after then that Arabs
from the surrounding
areas came to Palestine
to live. In this Palestine,
the Jews now have their
sovereign state, Israel,
with 3,150,000 popula-
tion, and the Palestinians
have their. state, Jordan,
with 1.5 million. There is
no place for a second
Arab state in Palestine."
Declaring it was "truly a
paradox that the Jews are
always the scapegoats,"
Dulzin said there were two
million Arabs fighting for
autonomy in Iran and
asked: "Does anyone care?
What about the Kurds? Did
anyone care about them?"
He added: "You can rest as-
sured Isarel will not be the
scapegoat any more. There,
is complete consensus in Is-
rael that there will be no
Palestinian state, that we
will not negotiate with the
PLO and Jerusalem will not
be divided."
Ivan Novick, ZOA
president, said that "those
who join in public criticism
of Israel are in fact under-
mining Israel and
encouraging the impositimi
of solutions to difficult prob-
lems by outside powers."
Urging an end to "such tac-
tics," Novick called "upon
the American Jewish lead-
ership assembled here to
express a solid front of sup-
port for Israel:"
Gen. Alexander Haig,
former supreme comman-
der of the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization
(NATO), said that Israel is
the strongest military
power in the Middle East

whose "very existence"
serves to deter Soviet ag-
gression. He added that a
strong, viable Israel assists
American interests and
"bolsters our friends in the
region and elsewhere."
Haig said attempts to
draw the PLO into the
negotiations between Is-
rael and Egypt "withou
agreement on the goals a,
the process" undermines
both Egyptian President
Anwar Sadat and Begin.
He called the peace
treaty between Israel and
Egypt "a deterrent to
war."
Haig described linkage
between Arab-Israeli set-
tlements and oil prices as
"tenuous" and denied any
connection between U.S. re-
lations with the PLO and
American ties to Saudi
Arabia.
Yehuda Blum, Israel's
ambassador to the United
Nations, said that he recog-
nized a parallel between the
systematic program of the
Germans which sought to
isolate the Jews of Europe
from the general population
and the current worldwide
effort to "delegitimize the
state of Israel."
Theodore Mann, chair-
man of the Conference of
Presidents of Major Ameri-
can Jewish Organizations,
expressed his concern that
the position of black leaders
and Republican President-
ial candidate John Connally
will eventually win many
adherents and that "around
March, when there are new
oil shortages, it is possible -
the President will adopt the
Connally position." Mann
was referring to the con-
troversial Connally position -
paper linking Israeli con-
cessions to the supply of
Arab oil.
Mann also told the con-
ference that he was con-
cerned by Moshe Dayan's
resignation as Israel's
foreign minister. "The
State Department and
the President know
Dayan has a big consti-.
tuency in the United
States," Mann explained.
"Thus they may feel they
can lean on Israel. I am
also concerned about the
lack of a counter to Gen.
Arik Sharon," Israel's
agriculture minister who
favors massive Jewish
settlements on the We
Bank.
There were numerous de-
partures from the usual
convention practices, in-
cluding the religious serv-
ices on Sabbath morning at
which the sermon was de-
livered by a layman, the
venerable octogeneraian
leader Beinish Epstein.
35 years, religious services
at Zionist conventions have
been organized by the New
York leader, ZOA national
treasurer Jack Lefkowitz.
The uniqueness of the
conference was in the
multi-lingual character.
Simultaneous translations
were provided over
specially-installed ear-
phones of speeches deliv-
ered in Enlgish, Spanish or
Yiddish.
