U.S., Israel Criticize Weizman
for Aiding the Carter Campaign

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Former Israeli Defense
Minister Ezer Weizman,
campaigning in the U.S. for
President Carter's re-
election, has drawn angry
comments in Washington
and Israel. A White House
spokesman, however, indi-
cated pleasure at Weiz-
man's appearance__Tuesday
on Carter's plane while
w
he
was campaigning in Ohio.
Weizman, now a member
of the Knesset visiting the
U.S. as a private citizen, has
made no contact with the Is-
raeli Embassy. An embassy
spokesman said Israel's
position is that Weizmann
is acting in a personal
capacity, that he does not
represent Israel in any way
and that the Israel govern-
ment's policy is not to be-
come involved even by im-
plication in this and other
elections.
At the White House, the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
was told by a spokesman:
"We are quite pleased to
have him, of course. His ac-
tion speaks for itself. It is a
personal thing for himself.
Obviously, he feels the
president is a great friend of
Israel and wants to repay
him for what he did for Is-
rael by speaking for him.
This is the first time an Is-
raeli of his stature has done
this but it is not without
precedent. Zimbabwe's-
prime minister, Robert
Mugabe, made an outright
endorsement of the
President in his visit here."
The U.S. media barely
Weizman's
noticed
presence on the
President's campaign
plane. The only report
was contained in a Wash-
ington Post story which
noted that the President, -
campaigning in West
Virginia and Ohio, was
accompanied by "an un-
usual ally in a President.
ial election" — Weizman.
The New York Times re-
ferred to Weizman as
"a surprise guest among
the local politicians ac-
companying Mr. Carter
aboard Air Force One."
While some Jewish ac-
tivists supporting the
President's election recalled
the criticism of Yitzhak
Rabin who openly sup-
ported the re-election of
President Nixon in 1972
when Rabin was Israeli am-
bassador to tke U.S., none
hAd good words for Weiz-
man. The closest note of
tolerance for Weizman's ac-
tion came from a source
close to the White House.
"I don't like it all," the
source said. "But it is not an
unreasonable thing for
Weizman who is so active to
express his view. It is crude
and politically damaging to
Carter• for his (Weizman)
being on the campaign trail.
I feel ambivalent about him
because the Administration
is being savaged on its re-
cord on Israel and I can see
how he wants to say the
Administration has been
good for Israel."
Weizman represented the

EZER WEIZMAN

Weizmann Institute on his
visit. (Reports from
Philadelphia and Chicago,
where he addressed Jewish
audiences, are that his in-
trusion into American poli-
tics was deeply resented.)
The Israel Cabinet
Tuesday issued an offi-
cial statement in the
name of Prime Minister
Begin expressing "deep
regret at MK Ezer Weiz-
man's interference in the
U.S. democratic electoral
process" and upholding
the principle of non-
interference. The state-
ment reflected a sense of
outrage at Weizman's be-
havior throughout the
country Tuesday.
Weizman himself, in a
Kol Israel Radio interview
broadcast Tuesday, refused
to express any regret.
When the interviewer
pointed out that his state-
ments endorsing Carter for
re-election were "unprece-
dented" Weizman observed

that it was "always good to
be the first."
Asked about the possi-
ble effect of his words
and actions on relations
with Reagan, Weizman,
said he was sure Reagan
would have liked him
`Weizman) to say those
things about him (Re-
agan). "But I don't know
him . . ."
Opinion around the
Cabinet table was wholly
negative and critical re-
garding Weizman's be-
havior. There were repor-
tedly reflections by minis-
ters on their former col-
league's irresponsibility
and tendency to impetuous-
ness.
