Triumphant Reagan Believes AWACS Will Boost Peace

tion containing agreements
with Saudi Arabia" that
certain conditions have
been met. These conditions,
outlined by the President
previously, included
guarantees to protect the
security of the equipment
being sold the Saudis to
ensure the information will
be shared with no one but
the U.S. and to ensure that
the five AWACS planes
would only fly over the area
needed to protect the Saudi
oilfields and would not
endanger Israel.
In his letter, Reagan said
on the command structure
of the AWACS planes,
"agreements as they con-
cern organizational com-
mand control structure_ for
the operation of AWACS
are of such a nature to
guarantee that the com-
mitments" on the AWACS
"will be honored." Gorton
took this to mean that this
guarantees joint crewing of
the plane. Reagan in his let-
ter noted that since skilled
Saudi personnel are in short
supply, the U.S. involve-
ment in the Saudi AWACS
operation will extend well
into the 1990s.
Another guarantee listed
by Reagan that was stressed
by Gorton was his promise
in the letter that he will cer-
tify in writing "that the sale
contributes directly to the
stability and security of the
area, enhances the atmos-
phere and prospects for pro-
gress toward peace and that
initiatives toward the
peaceful resolution in the
region have either been suc-
cessfully completed or sig-
nificant progress toward
that goal has been accom-

plished with the substantial
assistance of Saudi Arabia."
In the day long debate
on Wednesday, oppo-
nents of the sale and sup -
porters went over much
of the arguments that
have been advanced over
the past several months.
Sen. Claiborne Pell (D-
R.I.), the ranking Demo-
crat on the Senate
Foreign Relations Com-
mittee, called the sale a
"series of botches" which
began with the Carter
Administration and con-
tinued with the present
Administration. He again
called on the President to
withdraw the sale and
work with Congress for a
more acceptable pro-
posal.

Pell
oted that the
Foreign Relations Commit-
tee, in urging the Senate to
reject the sale by a 9-8 vote,

Unselfishness of Israelis
Seen in Rise of Volunteers

By SIMON GRIVER
World Zionist
. Press Service

JERUSALEM — There is
more active care and con-
cern for fellow citizens in Is-
rael than in any other
Western society. This is the
claim of Sara Meltzer,
chairman of Israel Volun-
tary Services and a former
secretary to David Ben-
Gurion. She cites the im-
pressive statistic that one in
every four Israelis are in-
volved in voluntary work.
Israel Voluntary Services
was established in 1972 by
the government, because
such an agency was badly
needed to cope with the
flood of people who were
volunteering to do social
work of some sort. The IVS
is a non-profit making
organization that receives
an annual budget from the
prime minister's office, but
is independent of the gov-
ernment.
Those who volunteer
their time can come to the
IVS offices, where they dis-
cuss their skills and inter-
ests and can be steered into
one of the country's 200 vol-
unteer organizations where
their talents might be best
tapped.

gave four reasons. He out-
lined these as: that sophisti-
cated equipment, particu-
larly the AWACS and the'
Sidewinder missiles could
fall into unfriendly hands;
that the AWACS being sold
are a downgraded version of
the plane and that the best
way to safeguard the oil-
fields would be to maintain
the four U.S. AWACS that
are presently there; that the
sale would escalate the
Middle East arms race and
that the sale would under-
mine the security of Israel.
Pell charged that he be-
lieves "the main reason for
this sale is to salve Saudi
Arabia's ego." He said that
this proposal, the arms sale,
"never should have been
allowed to become a litmus
test of U.S.-Saudi relations
or a referendum on the
prestige of the American
Presidency."
Sen. Charles Percy (R-

These organizations
undertake a wide range
of activities, in many
cases helping the old, the
poor and the sick. "Al
Samim" is a group that
offers educational infor-
mation on the problems
and pitfalls of drug
addiction. It was started
several years ago by par-
ents whose own children
had gotten into trouble
with drugs.
A road safety society has
contributed to the decrease
in Israel's notoriously high
number of traffic casualties.
Many of its members have
had relatives killed or in-
jured on the road.
Dentists have banded - to-
gether to give free treat-
ment to the poor, while
other organizations work to
advance Arab-Jewish
coexistence. Then there are
ad hoc organizations to help
iii international emergen-
cies. At the end of 1979 mil-
lions of dollars were col-
lected to help the Cambo-
dian refugees.
Eva Zamir is a 66-year-
old volunteer in the pediat-
ric
surgery
ward at
Jerusalem's Hadassah Hos-
pital. She makes beds,
brings the laundry, plays
with the children and
cheers up their parents. Her
only regret is that she can-
not speak Arabic in order to
communicate better with
the hospital's Arab
patients.
IVS is running a slogan
campaign with the catch
phrase "to give is also to re-
ceive" which aims to reflect
the way in which members
of a society are interdepen-
dent.

Named to Post

NEW YORK — Fred
Sichel of West Orange, N.J.,
has been elected president
of the Jewish Education
Service of North America.

The highest pleasure
which nature has indulged
to sensitive perception is
that of rest after fatigue.
—Johnson

Ill.), chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations Commit-
tee, said rejection of the sale
would hinder the
President's ability to con-
duct foreign policy. He said
it makes achieving Middle
East peace "more difficult"
and would confirm the per-
ception in the Arab world
that the U.S. cannot have a
Balanced policy in the Mid-
dle East.
He said approval of the
AWACS will not make the
Saudis more willing to
join the Camp David
process but may make
them more willing to join
an expanded peace proc-
ess in the Middle East.
Percy said that rejection
would "jeopardize efforts
to bring greater stability
to the Middle East and
the Persian Gulf." Sen.
Barry Goldwater (R-
Ariz.), said that rejection
of the sale "could lead to
war in the Middle East."
Two of the final vote
switches which helped push
the sale to victory were by --
Republican William Cohen
of Maine, who is half-
Jewish, and Democrat Ed-
ward Zorinsky of Nebraska,
who is Jewish. Others were
Mark Andrews (R-N.D.)
and Russell Long (D-La.).
Last weekend, President
Reagan sent a letter to
Prime Minister Menahem
Begin of Israel, assuring
him that the U.S. would
honor the strategic coopera-
tion agreements forged with
Israel this summer.
At the same time, speak-
ing in television interviews,
Senate Majority Leader
Howard Baker (R-Tenn.)
and former U.S. Vice
President Walter Mondale
dismissed reports that a Se-
nate veto of AWACS would
lead to an increase in anti-
Semitism in the U.S.
Baker said that those
like him who would
"grieve" if the AWACS
sale was rejected would
"immediately under-
stand that there is a first
prime responsibility to
see that no such result
(anti-Semitism) ensues.
And I don't believe it
would. And I think the

leadership of both sides
of the aisle, the White
House and throughout
the country will recog-
nize that this would have
such devestating conse-
quences that it is unac-
ceptable."
Mondale, while also re-
jecting a backlash added, "I
deeply resent the attempt to
introduce that kind of dis-
cussion into the debate." He
said the warnings by former
President Nixon that there
would be "consequences" to
the American Jewish com-
munity and Israel if the sale
was rejected was "totally
inappropriate." Mondale
added that "the AWACS
sale above all stands as an
example of the influence of
the Saudis in American
foreign policy."
