PBS Series on 'Saudi Arabia' Veils Bias

where in the program. This
is a vehement hatred of
Jews as a race which has its
origins in the passion of
King Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud,
founder of the present state
and progenitor of the cur-
rent dynasty.
Ibn Saud swore that
where "we see (Jews)
encroaching on us we Mus-
lims will fight them and
butcher them until we have
driven them far from our
lands." He also pledged that
no Jew would be allowed
into the Kingdom and that
pledge has remained in
Saudi anti-Jewishness
remains extreme t-led
virulent. In January of
last year, the Saudis
called for jihad, or holy
war, against Israel. More
recently, they have used

an accusation of Jewish
ancestry to discredit Li-
byan dictator Muammar
Qaddafi, with whom they
have been having a war
of words.
The other major problem
with "Saudi Arabia" is the
inordinate amount of time it
devotes to the Arab-Israeli
conflict, which it labels "the
main foreign policy prob-
lem" for Foreign Minister
(later King) Faisal in the
1950s and 1960s. But the
program dismisses Saudi
Arabia's great conflict with
Egypt's Gamal Abdel Nas-
ser in a sentence.
While the Saudis were
unquestionably concerned

Egypt Nixes Jerusalem
for New Autonomy Talks

Butros Ghali, Egypt's
Minister of State for
Foreign Affairs, declared
here that Egyptian-Israeli
talks on Palestinian au-
tonomy cannot be held in
Jerusalem. He made that
statement at a press confer-
ence in the course of a
three-day visit to The
Ghali said, among other
things, that Europe can still
play a useful role in settling
the Middle East problem,
not independent of the
United States but in coordi-
nation with it. The key to a
soltition lies with Washing-
ton, the Egyptian diplomat
He added, however, that
the European Economic
Community (EEC) should
put forward its own views
on a Middle East peace set-
tlement and he hoped the
process would not slacken
because of the current Falk-
land Islands crisis.
Ghali also said that
Egypt would not partici-
pate in the forthcoming

with the Arab-Israeli clash,
and sent troops to fight in
the wars against Israel, this
was nothing compared to
the threat to the monarchy
which Nasser presented be-
tween 1952 and 1967.
While "Saudi Arabia" is
an American production,
the Saudi Pavilion at the
Knoxville, Tenn. World's
Fair is not. It is a $4-million
attempt to appeal to the
"grassroots" over the heads
of the New York and Wash-
ington media, which the
Saudis regard as hopelessly
hostile. The only other Mid-
dle Eastern country at the
fair is Egypt.
The Saudi message to
America will really

Arab summit conference
in Fez, Morocco, con-
vened by the Arab
League. The Arab
League moved its head-
quarters from Cairo to
Tunis in protest against
the 1979 Egyptian-Israeli
peace treaty. Ghali said
the move was illegal and
Egypt does not recognize
He said the Arab League
headquarters must be re-
turned to Cairo and a new
secretary general must be
In Jerusalem, the
Cabinet made- it official pol-
icy that Israel will not par-
ticipate in the autonomy
talks with Egypt and the
U.S. unless Jerusalem is in-
cluded among the three cap-
itals where the negotiators
Premier Menahem Begin
declared that by refusing to
send its delegation to
Jerusalem, Egypt was re-
sponsible for the failure to
resume the talks.
According to the
Cabinet, Israel wants the
autonomy negotiations to
be resumed without
further delays.
Richard Fairbanks, the
U.S. special envoy to the au-
tonomy talks, arrived in Is-
rael Sunday in an effort to
resolve the dispute and get
the talks moving. After his
meetings here, Fairbanks
will go to Cairo.
Meanwhile, United
States Deputy Secretary of
State Walter Stoessel said
in Paris that the U.S. has
made concrete suggestions
to Egypt and Israel and that
he hoped the tripartite
negotiations on Palestinian
autonomy will soon resume.
Stoessel also stressed that
Washington "has no pre-
conceived ideas" on the au-
tonomy talks but it will do
all it can to get them started
again. --
Another American visitor
who discussed the Middle
East with President Fran-
cois Mitterrand was former
President Jimmy Carter, in
Paris on a private visti. Ac-

hibit on U.S.-Saudi rela-
tions going back to the
clays of Roosevelt and
Ibn Saud, and a list of top
U.S. companies with joint
ventures in Saudi Arabia.
Jean Abinader, a former
executive director of the
National Association of
Arab Americans, is han-
dling the pavilion on behalf
of the Saudis.
It all seems very ironic.
The fair is dedicated to
energy and has as its main
structure a 266-foot igh
"Sunsphere." Israel,
is a world leader in so
search, is unrepresented.
Saudi Arabia, whose —
livelihood and political
clout are oil-based and
whose boycott in 1973
caused the current energy
crisis, is using this forum to
reach out to the American
people — who were vic-
timized by its actions.
