"A Palestinian state

state in the energy heart-
land of the world," he con-
tended. "To permit the es-
tablishment of such an
entity in the wake of the
Soviet invasion of Af-
ghanistan and the continu-
ing threat to Iran would be a
geo-political disaster for the
U.S. Unless suicide has be-
come our foreign policy, the
U.S. must not let this hap-
pen," Kirkland said. "Our
country should be utterly

Mann said, the goal must be
to achieve "rejection of the
Ayatollah and what he
stands for from within —
and to make sure that what
emerges thereafter is some-
thing other than another
Soviet satellite ...
"Israel's security and fu-

what occurs in Iran and the
rest of the Islamic world in
the years ahead as on the
outcome of the current
peace negotiations.
"Soviet Jewry's future
depends as much or more on

superpowers than on what
we or Israel can do for them

At another session of the
NJCRAC, Israeli Justice
Minister Shmuel Tamir ex-
pressed concern over the
"timing, amounts and qual-
ity" of Western military
shipments to Egypt in light
of the unpredictability of
events in the Middle East.
But he agreed in principle
that the Cairo regime

He said he was disturbed

hopeful that the present
trend in Egypt will con-

served, however, that "Is-

Tamir also told the
NJCRAC assembly that the
crisis in Iran and the Soviet
invasion of Afghanistan
have drawn Israel and
Egypt closer together and it
was time for the free world
to recognize that both coun-
tries were essential ele-
ments of the "overall
