purposes against the

Portfolio Yitzhak Modai. He
said it had "occurred to him"
only after the accord was
signed.

(Continued from Page 1)
Sharon shouted back that
in 1956 Israel had with-
drawn from Sinai under a
Soviet threat, and in 1973
the Soviets had threatened
to intervene if Israel went
ahead to destroy the Egyp-
tian Third Army.
"Whom are you trying
to kid (that Israel is not
faced by a Soviet military
threat)? Sharon taunted
the Labor benches.
"Whom are you pretend-
g to ... I know it hurts

see someone else reach-
ing an agreement. But

ARTICLE II

1. The fields in which
strategic cooperation will be

above-mentioned threat

urity of the region include:

b. Joint military exer-
cises, including naval and
air exercises in the eastern
Mediterranean Sea, as ag-
reed upon by the parties.
c. Cooperation for the es-
tablishment and mainte-
nance of joint readiness ac-
tivities, as agreed upon by
the parties.
d. Other areas within the
basic scope and purpose of

The following is the text
of the memorandum of un-
derstanding signed ,Monday
by Israeli Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon and U.S. Sec-
retary of Defense Caspar
Weinberger:,

PREAMBLE

this frustration for a long
time to come ...'

The accord, he continued,.
would "put an end to the
hopes of our Arab enemies"
, that with the help of the
USSR they will eventually
be able to annihilate Israel.
It was also "a basis for ties
with countries in Asia and
Africa which fear Soviet ex-
, pansionism . . . and you'll be
hearing much more on that
in the future." (Sharon re-
cently toured several Afri-
can countries, according to
foreign reports.)
In his motion of no-,
confidence, Abba Eban for
Labor termed the govern-
ment's handling of the
whole episode "hasty, unba-
lanced and purposeless."
He mocked Sharon's
claims (made in the U.S.)
that there was a secret part
to the pact. "It is so secret
that even the Americans
don't know about it," Eban
said.
Both Eban and Amnon
Rubinstein (Shinui)
pointed out that by pledg-
ing to help Israel against
forces "outside the reg-
ion," the U.S. could be
said to have actually
weakened its commit-
ment to help . Israel
against its Arab enemies
("the real enemy," said
Eban) inside the area.
The same point was made
earlier in a press interview
by Minister Without

This memorandum of un-
derstanding reaffirms the
common bonds of friendship
between the United States
and Israel and builds on the
mutual security relation-
ship that exists between the
two nations. The parties
recognize the need to en-
hance strategic cooperation
to deter all threats from the
Soviet Union to the region.
Noting the long-standing
and fruitful cooperation for
mutual security that has
developed between the two
countries, the parties have
decided to establish a
framework for continued
consultation and coopera-
tion to enhance their na-
tional security by deterring
such threats to the whole
region.
