OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT REAGAN

President Ronald Reagan
The White House
Washington, D.C. 20500

Dr. Mr. President,
This is to express our deepest concern over the arms package-being proposed for Saudi
Arabia, the country that calls Israel their principal enemy and who has declared a holy war to
destroy the Jewish state. That is a threat that must be taken most seriously. Not only has Saudi
Arabia taken part and bankrolled three wars against Israel, but annually for many years has
supplied the PLO with hundreds of millions of dollars to support the PLO's murderous attacks
against Jews and Lebanese. As your admistration has pointed out, there is a Soviet connection to
the terrorist PLO. While the Soviet Union provides the arms, training and diplomatic backing, the
Saudis provide the cash. The Saudis, while maintaining that they are friends of the United States,
are in effect cooperating with Russia in partnership with the terrorist PLO.
Mr. President, the Arab states already have more arms than NATO. Israel has 65 percent of its
population and 75 percent of its industry concentrated along the coast and is highly vulnerable
from the air. Your administration's proposed arms package will provide the means with the five
AWACs, the plane for battlefield surveillance and tactical control, to knock out Israel's air defenses
and allow the 62 long range F15 attack bombers, which are also part of your arms package, to
readily penetrate and devastate all of Israel. No amount of military equipment or loans can
compensate for such a breach of Israel's defenses.
There is also the matter of the credibility of American promises and commitments. The
conversion of the Fl 5s to long range attack bombers violates a solemn 1978 pledge not to do so.
How will any further pledges.ab credible?
Mr. President, it is not in America's interest or honor to promote a war in the Middle East that
can lead to the destruction of Israel and its replacement with a Soviet surrogate. Please, Mr.
President, reconsider and do not give the Saudis the weapons to make possible their holy war to
destroy the Jewish state.

Sincerely,

1

displayed
fragments of Torah scrolls
and megillot that had sur-
vived the Nazi occupation of
Poland. He said Polish uni-
versity officials in Krakow
and Warsaw had presented
the scrolls as a gift to the
UAHC. The fragments will
be given, in turn, to a
number of Reform
synagogues around the
country "as a memorial to

the vanished communities
from which they come,"
Schindler said.
An exhibition of some 100
different relics of Jewish
religious and cultural life in
Poland will be displayed at
Harvard University's

the exhibition will be sent to

Hailing the agreement,

that within a period of 60
months the Nazis put to

NEW YORK — The
Jewish National Fund, the
organization responsible for
the afforestation and de-
velopment of the land of Is-
rael, will mark its 80th an-
niversary with a "Journey
Through History" mission,
June 25-July 12. Partici-
pants will see sites of sig-
nificance in JNF history in
Europe and Isarel.
The mission will include
stops in London, Amster-
dam, The Hague and Basle
for a review of the birth and
early days of JNF. In Basle,
Switzerland, mission mem-
bers will visit the Stadt
Casino, where in 1901,
Theodor Herzl, the father of
modern Zionism, pro-
claimed the establishment
of the Jewish National
Fund at the Fifth Zionist
Congress. Herzl's residence
in Basle, the Three Kings
Hotel, will be the location of

a meeting with local JNF of-
ficials and communal lead-
ers.
The "Journey Through
History" will also include a
visit to London, where the
1920 Zionist Congress con-
ferred special status on the
JNF. Among the activities
planned are a meeting with
the Board of Deputies of
British Jews, a reception by
the JNF of Great Britain,
_ _
conferences with the chief
rabbi of Great Britain and
Ireland and the Israel am-
bassador to the United
Kingdom, and a tour of
Jewish London.
A reception in honor of
the JNF mission will take
place in a castle at
Wasenaar, near The
Hague, Netherlands,
where JNF was head-
quartered during World
War, I. The stay in Hol-
land will also feature a

guided tour of Amster-
dam's Jewish landmarks
and other special events.
Highlights of the nine-
day stay in Israel will be vis-
its to the first kibutzim on
JNF-acquired land in the
Galilee, discussions with
three generations of vete-
ran settlers, an inspection of
JNF-prepared settlement
outposts and talks with
modern pioneers. They will
also see the transformation
of the Hula swarnps into fer-
tile farmland. Throughout
the stay in Israel the JNF
Mission will be treated to a
series of special receptions
and events.
