WASHINGTON
Washington has been
enthralled in recent weeks
by the largesse of the Saudi
Arabians. The Saudis, who
have admitted that they get
more money from their oil
revenues than they know
what to do with, appear to
have targeted this nation's
capital as one of their favo-
rite charities.
First there was the an-
nouncement that Sheik
Mohammed S.A. al-Fassi
had donated $50,000 for the
city's summer job program.
Mayor Marion Barry was so
overwhelmed that he pro-
claimed last May 6 as a day
in honor of the young Saudi
and praised Fassi for his
"substantial contributions
toward increasing under-
standing and goodwill
among all nations."
This led Washington Post
writer Walter Shapiro, in a
satirical article, to complain
about' "unctious festivities
down at the district build-
ing," Washington's city
hall. Shapiro noted that "30
cents means as much to me
as $50,000 does to the
sheik," whom reportedly is
worth some $6 billion.
Fassi was previously
known to the American
public for some of his
outrageous behavior at
his home in Beverly Hills
and for the $3 billion di-
vorce suit his wife has
filed against him.
Then there is Wolf Trap.
The Washington area was
shocked earlier this year
when the park in Vienna,
Va. where summer concerts
are held burned down just
as the summer season was
being planned. People,

NEW YORK — U.S. Sen.
Alan Cranston (D-Calif.)
and Yeshiva University
President Dr. Norman
Lamm are among the
speakers who will address
the National Council of
Young Israel (Orthodox) at
its annual convention
June 17-20 in New York.

tions throughout the area
have been donating funds so
that the center can be re-
built and the summer pro-
gram held as planned.
The Wolf Trap Founda-
tion did obtain a modular
structure composed of fabric
panels stretched between
aluminum arches which
was being used as a storage
facility in Dubai and will be
used temporarily until a
permanent building is con-
structed. It was the Saudis
who brought the structure
to the attention of Wolf
Trap, according to Robert
Keith Gray, chairman of the
foundation's board of direc-
tors.
Saudi Arabian Airlines
has promised to pay the
freight charge of $100,000.
The. structure was shipped
on an Air France 747 cargo
jet.
Dr. Michael Berenbaum,
executive director of the
Jewish Community Council
of Greater Washington, told
the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, that these gifts
were "an example of the
vast economic power Saudi
Arabia enjoys. Lest we be
overly moved by this
largesse we should be re-
minded that over the past
nine years the Saudis in-
creased the price of oil.
What they are giVing us is
petty change on the billions
of dollars the American
people have paid to Saudi
Arabia for their oil."
There is no doubt that the
Saudis have gotten good
public relations values for
their donations. It is easier
for them to donate $150,000

than to really prove friend-
ship for the United States
by providing the moderate
acts for which the U.S. gov-
ernment likes to credit
them.
These donations are
"petty change" when one
considers the billions given
to the Palestine Liberation
Organization for their ter-
rorist acts, for example.
What is needed is not char-
ity, but proof that the
Saudis want to work for
peace in the Middle East, by
supporting, instead of seek-
ing to wreck, the Camp
David peace process, for
starters..
