Business Agency Predicts
Warm U.S.-Israel Relations

The Holt Executive Advi-
sory, a major investment in-
formation service for
businessmen, has told its
readers not to be surprised
if, "when tempers cool," the
relationship between the
United States and Israel
"becomes the warmest in
According to the newslet-
ter, "the fact is, America
won't and can't really break
with Israel" because the
U.S. wants "a strong de-
nse belt against Soviet
ession in the Mideast"-

mericans Still
Support Israel

spite the heated debate over
the sale of AWACS planes
to Saudi Arabia and despite
the U.S. Administration's
inference that Premier
Menahem Begin of Israel
was trying to interfere with
U.S. foreign policy, the
American public maintains
its strong support of Israel,
according to a Gallup poll
just released.
The survey, based on
more than 1,500 interviews
conducted during the last
week in November, was
commissioned by the
American Jewish Commit-
In response to a ques-
tion about countries that
constitute a vital interest
for the United States, 81
percent of the respon-
dents named Israel. This
was an increase of three
percent over responses in
a similar survey con-
ducted in 1978.
Given the hypothetical
situation of war breaking
out between Israel and one
or more of her Arab
neighbors, only about one in
eight of those surveyed -
would sympathize with Is.-
rael's oppoinent. However,
the survey revealed that a
significant number of
Americans, more than one
in three, could not or would
not choose either side.

Romanian Aliya
at 1,000 in 1981

About 1,000 Jewish immig-
rants from Romania arrived
in Israel last year, Rafael
Kotlowitz, head of the
Jewish Agency's Immigra-
tion and Absorption De-
partment, reported.
Kotlowitz, who recently
visited Romania, said that
although the Romanian
government _objects to
emigration in principle, it
makes an exception regard-
ing Jewish emigration,
tly for historic rea-
." In the past Romania
was known for its stiffpolicy
regarding Jewish exit.
Kotlowitz visited 20
Jewish communities in
Romania. Most. of Roma-
nian Jewry lives in
Bucharest. The community
lacks Hebrew teachers and
suffers from widespread as-
similation, he said. Kot-
lowitz praised Chief Rabbi
Moses Rosen for his com-
munal activities.


and cannot count on Riyadh
"to serve as the center of
that belt."
While Egypt is considered
relatively more dependable
than Saudi Arabia, Egypt's
new leaders, with President
Anwar Sadat gone, resist
going "all the way" to sup-
port U.S. strategy, the
newsletter noted.
Israel's dependence on
the U.S. "is no longer a
one-way street," the news-
letter states. As U.S. policy
shifts toward the Third
World and Asia, "the value
of local bases and reliable
troops is rising sharply."
Against that background
the recent "lovers quarrel"
may be "a good thing," ac-
cording to the newsletter.

Two Appointed

The Cabinet has extended
the term of Chief of Staff
Gen. Rafael Eitan for an-
other year and also ap-
pointed Dr. Moshe Mandel-
baum Governor of the Bank
of Israel, succeeding Arnon
Gafni who resigned several
weeks ago.
Eitan's reappointment
makes him the longest te-
nured , Chief of Staff in Is-
rael's history.
The new Governor of the
Bank of Israel is 49 years
old and served as Deputy
Governor under Gafni.

U.S. Welcomes Egypt's
Jet Deal With the French

The U.S. gave its blessing to
Egypt's purchase of 20 ad-
vanced Mirage-2000 jet
combat aircraft from

that there was "no conflict
between our own program
