James Watt Criticized for Threat to Israel

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Jewish leaders and major
political figures are react-
ing angrily to a warning by
Interior Secretary James
Watt that U.S. support for
Israel could end if "liberals"
in the American Jewish
community continue to op-
pose the Administration's
energy policies. Many have
demanded Watt's resigna-
tion.
The implicit threat was
contained in a letter from
Watt to Israel's Ambas-
sador to Washington,
Moshe Arens. The letter;
JAMES WATT
dated June 17, stressed ef-
forts to end "America's de- crude energy" and observed,
pendency upon foreign . "If the liberals of the Jewish
community join with the
other liberals of this nation
to oppose these efforts, they
will weaken our ability to be
a good friend of Israel. Your
supporters in America need
to know these facts."
Watt met with leaders of
the Anti-Defamation
League of Bnai Brith Wed-
nesday and admitted that
the letter was "a .mistake"
and that American Jews
had "every right to be up-
set."
, The White House Dis-
avowed the letter. Deputy
Press Secretary Larry
Speakes said, "The main
quarrel we have with it is it
does not represent Adminis-
air and sunlight,
tration policy . . . It is not

the President's viewpoint."
The initial reaction from
the White House Friday had
been that the letter was
"unfortunate." But Watt in-
sisted, in various public
statements over the
weekend that he had in-
tended no threat and de-
fended his position.
Sen. Daniel Moynihan
(D. NY), accused the Sec-
retary of "bare-knuckled
bigotry" and declared
that if -Watt does not re-
sign "President Reagan
should dismiss him im-
mediately."
Reps. Toby. Moffett (D-
Conn.) and Tom Lantos
(D-Calif.) wrote to Reagan
over the weekend: "Mr.
Watt's remarks were highly
inappropriate and inflam-
matory. They suggest that
America's foreign policy is
in some way linked to
`Jewish' and 'liberal' sup-
port of the Administration's
energy policy."
The Washington Post
quoted Watt as saying,
"There's no threat intended.
To have a threat, you have
to say we'd do something if
they (American Jews) didn't
do something." His mes-
sage., he claimed, was, "If
you don't support this, the
Reagain Administration is
going to go ahead doing
what's right whether you
support it or not."
The letter came to light
when it appeared last
week in the Washington

Pro PLO Group
Sponsors Rally ,
on Lebanon

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The "November 29 Coali-
tion" held a 'teach-in" on
the war in Lebanon Sunday
that drew some 1,500 people
to Town Hall in midtown
Manhattan.
The all-day rally was
originally to have taken
place at the Diplomat Hotel
across the street, but was
cancelled, according to the
hotel's management, when
it became clear that the
sponsoring organization
was a front for the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
Comparing Israel's oper-
ation in Lebanon to the Nazi
Holocaust, the panelists,
who included pro-PLO
Americans, Lebanese, and
Palestinian academicians,
as well as an Israeli anti-
Zionist attorney, Lea
Tsemel, condemned the in-
vasion and derided the U.S.
attempts to evacuate the
PLO from Beirut. Also
attending the rally was
Zehdi Labib Terzi, the
PLO's permanent observer
at the United Nations.

Explosion Rips
Jewish Home

PARIS (JTA) — A house
belonging to a prominent
Jewish family was blown up
by a bomb last Saturday
morning near Toulon in the
south of France.
The house which is owned
by a Marseilles manufac-
turer, Daniel Cohen, was
empty at the time. Police
investigators said they
found leaflets at the scene
inscribed "Death to the
Jews."

Times, a recently estab-
lished daily of strong
conservative views.
There was no indications
how the newspaper ob-
tained the month-old let-
ter.
Last week, Watt sent a
letter to 28 Congressmen
criticizing them for attack-
ing his off-shore drilling
proposals at a time when
"Israel was embroiled in
war concerning her ow
survival and a liberated
Lebanon."
