JNF President
Issues Warning

GROSSINGERS, N.Y.
(JTA) — Rabbi/ William
Berkowitz, president of the
Jewish National Fund,
warned Sunday that Israel
was entering a "fateful
period" in which her basic
security was threatened by
"the willingness of Western
Europe to be intimidated by
Arab wealth, the apparent
inability of the Reagan Ad-
ministration to say 'no' to
Saudi Arabia and a new
arms race that imperils Is-
rael's economic recovery."
