PHILADELPHIA — Now
that a bloc of Senators has
tied up the sale of AWACS
and sophisticated F-15
complexes to the Saudi
Arabians, the munitions
manufacturers are attempt-
ing an end run. The present
play, very dangerous to
American and Israeli secu-
rity, involves the sale of 200
XM-1 ultra-modern tanks
to the Saudis.
Technical superiority in
tanks and in the air gave
the Israelis the edge in de-
feating the aggressor forces
in the previous attacks of
1967 and 1973. Totally out-
numbered in manpower, Is-
rael has overcome the dis-
advantage by superiority in
tanks and airplanes, backed
by what Golda Meir called
"our secret weapon" — the
knowledge that Israel could
not afford to lose.
Now "American" arms

dealers propose to erode
that technical superiority,
with a certain cost of Israeli
lives if the Arab League is
able to turn its verbal cold
war into another hot war.
Most Americans do not
follow even important
debates overseas and are
unaware of the raging
debate of the last six
months in West Germany.
The German Federal Re-
public, which depends
upon Saudi Arabia for 27
percent of its fuel oil, has
been under tremendous
pressure to sell Leopard
II tanks to the Saudis.
The sale would help the
West German economy,
recently sagging, and it
would lift some of the
pressure from the oil
blackmailers headed by
Sheikh Yamani of Saudi
Arabia.
All of Western Europe is
excruciatingly vulnerable
to this blackmail, so long as
the U.S. has no energy pol-
icy for itself and its allies.
Helmut
Chancellor
Schmidt made a special trip
to Riyadh, however, to ex-
plain that West Germany
could not accept the moral
responsibility — after the
German record during the
Holocaust — for supplying
the best tanks in the world
to a government still calling
for a "Holy War" against Is-
rael. It was a costly decision,
long debated in the news-
papers and in the Bonn par-
liament and cabinet.
The East German gov-
ernment, controlled by an
anti-Semitic Communist
leadership, has of course
had no such compunction.
They regularly supply ad-
vanced equipment, after the
Russians and Cubans have
had their pick, to the PLO
and aggressive govern-
ments of the Arab League.
"American" arms
manufacturers feel no
such compunctions
about supplying aggres-
sor governments, either.
Like "American" oil car-
tels, they are uninhibited
in their search for quick

profits by any considera-
tion for Israeli (or Ameri-
can) lives.
As this column has prev-
iously outlined, there is no
reason why the U.S. gov-
ernment should continue in
its failure to free America
and its allies from the pres-
sure of oil blackmail, so de-
structive of American
interests on the world map.
We have the reserves to
build a stockpile. We have
the alternative sources. But
so far our national adminis-
trations have utterly failed
to develop a suitable energy
policy.
It looks as though only Is-
rael and the German Fed-
eral Republic have the
moral strength to resist
those threatening the secu-
rity of the West.
The Israelis and the West
Germans have shown cour-
age in dealing with ter-
rorism, from Entebbe to
Mogadishu to suppression
of the Nazi "Hoffmann
Sportsverein" in Bavaria.
In the U.S., 80 percent
of German-language Nazi
propaganda is printed in
and distributed from
Lincoln, Neb. The KKK
and Nazis are allowed to
train and organize
para-military bands to
threaten the lives and
liberties of loyal citizens.
And internationally our
profiteers are allowed to
arm the enemies of the
Free World, even to the
extent of undercutting a
friendly ally whose gov-
ernment remembers the
past and is trying to lift
the burden of the past
from the human con-
science.

Mosque Re-opens

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The
Al-Jazzar mosque in Acre,
built in 1781 by Ahmad Al-
Jazzar (the butcher) Pasha
and held to be the most
beautiful in Israel, was
reopened last week after re-
novations paid for mainly
by the government.
The ceremony was
attended by President lit-
zhak Navon and hundreds
of Jewish, Moslem, Chris-
tian and Druze spiritual
leaders, judges and heads of
Arab local councils. One of
the most sacred relics held
by the mosque and on dis-
play in a glass cabinet is a
hair from the beard of the
Prophet Mohammed.

Jewish-Hispanic
Group Sets Goals

NEW YORK — Officials
of the American Jewish
Congress and a group of na-
tional Hispanic leaders will
establish a program for
cooperation on a voter regis-
tration. project and to sup-
port renewal of the 1964
Voting Rights Act. The
agreement to organize a
Jewish-Hispanic coalition
to work for these goals came
following a recent confer-
ence at Stephen Wise Con-
gress House here.

Administration check those
who seek quick profits in
disregard of the internal
and external well-being of
America?
Will the oil cartels, which
have used their uncons-
cionable profits to build
larger industrial amalga-
mations rather than expand
energy sources, be forced
into line with the national
interest?
Will the arms industry,

which would sell to the
Soviets as quickly as to the
Saudi Arabians if given the
chance, be controlled by
concern for American secu-
rity?
Or shall we continue to
see, as we saw under Nixon
and Ford and Carter, an
administration in Washing-
ton that is too weak to pro-
tect the American people
from internal predators and
external aggressors?

A Shavuot Treat

Dairy foods are eaten on Shavuot, the holiday
commemorating the giving of the 10 Commandments
to Moses on Mt. Sinai. The reason for this tradition is
that the Torah is compared to milk and honey, the
same words used to describe the Land of Israel in the
Bible. A traditional dairy treat for Shavuot is blintzes.
