'COMMITTEE IN
FORMATION

ARAB WARFARE IN THE U.S.: A massive and ugly
propaganda campaign is now being developed in this coun-
try by Arab agents and pro-Arab elements to influence
Congress to vote against giving American aid to Israel. The
campaign is being carried through large advertisements in
newspapers in 50 cities.
The basic text of the costly ad is the same for all the
newspapers accepting it — not all newspapers accept it,
recognizing its maliciously misleading contents — but the
text is slyly adjusted to each city to appeal to innocent
Americans locally.
Asserting that Israel "spent $2.5 billion in three weeks
to kill people in Lebanon," the inciting ad asks provoca-
tively whether the money given to Israel could not be "bet-
ter spent" for the benefit of the population of the city where
the advertisement is carried. The ad is placed by a group
calling itself "American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Com-
mittee" and gives an address in Washington. It urges the
readers "to write or call Congressmen and Senators to stop
American foreign aid to Israel."
The expensive advertisement — which is obviously
funded by Arab oil governments and by some American
firms dealing with these governments — does not mention,
naturally, that Arab countries are also receiving substan-
tial financial aid from the U.S. Nor does it mention the fact
that the Palestine Liberation Organization is being fi-
nanced by Saudi Arabia to the tune of $1 million a day, and
that the Soviet government is — according to a report by
the Central Intelligence Agency — allocating about $200
million annually for "national liberation" movements
abroad, the largest part of which goes to the PLO for ter-
rorist activities.
JEWS ON THE ALERT: National JeWish organiza-
tions are mobilizing to fight this Arab campaign. Because
the inciting Arab ad is focusing on sensit: ,re issues through
a local approach, the Anti-Defamation League of Bnai
Brith has alerted its regional offices across the country to
react in the form of a letter-to-the-editor campaign in any
newspaper in their region carrying the deceptive ad.
The U.S. government is committed to Israel for the
year 1983 under the Foreign Aid Bill (HR 6370). The bill
provides for $1.7 million in military assistance and $785
million in economic support. It has already completed the
Congressional committee process, and is awaiting action on
the floor ,of both the Senate and the House when Congress
resumes its session. A Congressional debate on the bill is
anticipated this fall.
It is feared that there may be a tendency on the part of
some members of Congress to take a position that Israel
needs less in terms of military supplies and equipment
because of the demonstration of Israel's strength in the war
in Lebanon. Jewish leadership is therefore preparing itself
for working with President Reagan and Congress to insure
the support of the request of close to $2.5 billion for Israel in
grants and loans in the 1983 budget;
There is special need now to demonstrate to the Ameri-
can public and to Congress that it is in America's interest to
maintain militarily and economically a strong Israel as the
only democracy in the Middle East upon whom the U.S. can
depend to thwart Moscow's ambition to make inroads into
the area. The Kremlin has already gained strong influence
in Syria and Iraq. In the Lebanon war alone, Israel defeated
two surrogates of the Soviet Union — the PLO and Syria —
thus weakening Soviet interests in the area.
With the PLO and their supporters now choosing
Washington as their real battlefield, Jewish leaders fear
that while Israel's operation in Lebanon resulted in the
military destruction of the PLO, pro-Arab petrodollars may
obtain a PLO victory in the U.S.
