Optimism Marks Israel-Egypt
Accords on Sinai Withdrawal
AJC Super Sunday
Surpasses 1981 Mark
TEL AVIV (JTA) — Israel Defense Minister Ariel Sharon ended his three-day visit to Egypt on
Wednesday after signing 12 agreements with Egyptian Foreign Minister Kamal Hassan Ali covering
several aspects of the continuing peace process- between Israel and Egypt. Sharon traveled home by the
overland Sinai route.
The agreements, which Hassan Ali described as "a great achievement and a great success," covered
postal and travel arrangements after Israel completes its withdrawal from Sinai on April 26, charter
flights, consular establishments, border crossings and other aspects of normalization.
,The Egyptians also agreed to purchase certain installations and equipment Israel will leave
behind when it evacuates Sinai. The only outstanding matter not resolved during Sharon's stay in
Cairo was a technical one involving the town of Rafah which lies astride the international
boundary between Israel and Egypt. Sharon said a joint committee would meet on Sunday to
work out an agreement in the best interests of the inhabitants of the town.
Sharon said Israeli and Egyptian teams would meet again on March 15 to deal with any other problems
which might arise but added that he saw none at this time.
While there has been no official confirmation, the Egyptians reportedly have accepted Sharon's
proposal that the international peacekeeping force in Sinai would patrol the strategic -islands of Tiran and
Senafir at the entrance to the Gulf at Aqaba; that Egypt will purchase the tourism infrastructure built by
Israel at Sharm el-Sheikh; and that Egypt will open consulates at Eilat and Haifa.
Agreement also has been reached on international charter flights from Eilat to the Sinai airfields.
Israel Radio reported that Egypt has agreed to allow Israel to remove structures and equip-
ment from northern Sinai after the region is formally returned to Egypt.
Under terms of the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty, all Israeli civilians must be out of the area by the
time Israel makes its final withdrawal.
If the report is confirmed, the Israeli government would be relieved of the immediate problem of
dismantling installations and equipment in the face of resistance from militant settlers and squatters who
are trying to block withdrawal from Sinai. In order to avoid a confrontation, the government agreed last

Franklin D. Roosevelt's Tapes Maligned
'40 Opponent Wendell Willkie as Fascist
By PHILIP SLOMOVITZ
President Franklin D. Roosevelt had his "Tapes," in which he had some derogatory comments on the man who
opposed him for the Presidency in 1940. The tapes were made public in the current issue of American Heritage, in a
revealing article by Prof. R.J.C. Butow of the University. of Washington in Seattle. In the tapes, FDR called Wendell
Willkie a Fascist.
This is a bit of history which serves as a reminder of another President (Richard M. Nixon) whose taped comments
continue to be the means for disputes politically and socially.
The Butow revelations refer to similar aspersions by one of Roosevelt's closest advisers, Judge Samuel Rosenman,
who was "Old Sam" to the President.
Both Roosevelt and his adviser Samuel Rosenman, who was dubbed"Sammy the Rose," gave Willkie a
Hitler designation. The facts challenge their views. "Dirty political tricks" is the designation given to the
newly-revealed FDR tapes. Their vilification is labeled "Nixonism." Here are some of the basic facts related
to the Roosevelt designation of the man who opposed him for athird term of the Presidency but who, shortly
thereafter, became one of the strongest supporters of Roosevelt's policies.
The American Heritage article received wide publicity. A thorough review of the article in the New York Times by
Leslie Bennetts contained the following:
"Roosevelt described a conversation with 'old Sam Rosenman,' a Presidential adviser, in which Rosenman 'got off a
very searching remark.' Rosenman, the President recounted, said 'that Willkie is using the tactics of Hitler.' Roosevelt

The U.S. on Wednesday cast a
veto in the Security Council to block a watered-down Jor-
danian resolution calling for sanctions against Israel for its
annexation of the Golan Heights. The vote was 9-1, with
five abstentions (Britain, France, Japan, Ireland and
Nine votes is the minimum necessary to allow Syria to
ask for a General Assembly debate on the issue. Only the
Security Council, however, can vote sanctions.
-- UNITED NATIONS
U.S. Ambassador to the UN Jeane Kirkpatrick
called the issue "an aberration and perversion" of the
Security Council's purpose because the resolution
would have led to more tensions rather than prevent
threats to peace. She chastised the UN for not having
once discussed the "brutal repression" in Poland.
Voting for the resolution were Jordan, the Soviet
Union, China, Poland, Spain, Uganda, Guyana, Zaire and
Togo. ( See background story, Page 25.)
