Israel Pushing Arms Sales - International Jewish Sports
to Latin American Regimes Hall Includes 38 U.S. Stars

O

Latin America has be-
come the leading customer
in the Israeli arms market,
the Detroit Free Press re-
cently reported.
Israel's arms exports now
bring in $1.5 billion a year.
They are expanding in an
otherwise depressed
economy, outstripping re-
ceipts from traditional ex-
ports like oranges and
diamonds, according to the
Free Press article.

The right-wing regimes
in Latin America are cur-
rently absorbing more than
half of Israel's arms sales
abroad. Uruguay, Argen-
tina, Costa Rica, Honduras
Colombia, Ecuador and
Guatemala are all investing
heavily in Israeli weapons,
the Free Press reported.

time, according to Barry
Lee Coyne, the JASA social
worker who organized the
Sunshine Club last March.

perience of mankind, is the
demagogue's sneer at intel-
ligent liberty, inviting na-
tional degeneracy and ruin.
