New Garage
for Old City

JERUSALEM (JNI) —
Relief for the congested
parking situation facing
drivers in the Jewish Quar-
ter of the Old City is in sight
should the municipality ac-
cept a plan submitted last
month by an international
advisory group.
The plan calls for a mod-
ern underground parking
garage in the Jewish Quar-
ter, replacing the present
open-air lot. The panel's
proposals also included a
tent-roof area in the predo-
minantly Arab site outside
the Damascus Gate for a
farmer's market.

serves neither the cause of
peace nor Mr. Timerman's
own cause of trying to be-
come an Israeli. Israel's op-
position deserves a more
eloquent and honest state-
ment than this shrill, in-
accurate and misleading
book."
* * *
Of the 1984 Democratic
Presidential hopefuls, none
have been more closely in-
volved with Congressional
action regarding the Middle
East than Sen. Alan
Cranston of California.
First elected to the Senate
in 1968, the 67-year-old
Cranston moved to the
Foreign Relations Commit-
tee in 1981 to pursue one of
his favorite areas, having
been a foreign correspon-
dent prior to World War II.
He was assigned to the Near
East Subcommittee and has
been more intimately in-
volved in U.S. policy
towards Israel for the past
two years.
Supporters of Israel re-
member the Californian's
leading role in trying to stop
last year's sale of AWACS
and F-15 enhancement
equipment to Saudi Arabia.
Not only was Cranston
active publicly in opposition
to the AWACS, but he
played an effective role on
the Foreign Relations
Committee and in the Se-
nate, mobilizing his fellow
Democrats.
As the Democratic Se-
nate Whip, Cranston has
played an active part in
legislation affecting the
U.S.-Israel relationship
with characteristic energy.
Since 1969, he has consis-
tently backed the supply of
military and economic as-
sistance "to maintain Is-
rael's deterrent capability,"
but primarily for moral rea-
sons.
Last year, the Senator
sponsored' a major amend-
ment to the Foreign Assis-
tance Authorization Bill
setting a precedent that
economic aid to Israel
should not be less than Is-
rael's annual debt repay-
ment to the U.S. The
amendment was adopted by

the committee but later dis-
carded by the full Senate in
the end-of-the-year crunch.
Cranston's Senate record
over the past 13 years is dis-
tinguished by his activity
and involvement in most is-
sues of concern to the
American Jewish commu-
nity and his attention to the
views of his many Califor-
nia Jewish constituents.
On the negative side,
some veteran Senate aides
recall Cranston's early
difficulties with the
Jackson-Vanik Freedom of
Emigration Amendment.
More recently, his open let-
ter to Prime Minister Begin,
following the Beirut mas-
sacre dismayed supporters
of Israel.
* * *
Israel's friends in the
United States mourned the
untimely passing of Rep.
Benjamin Rosenthal of
Queens, N.Y. Ben, 59, and
in the House since 1962,
was always in the forefront
of the battles in the Foreign
Affairs Committee in
gathering support for Is-
rael. His wry sense of humor
and popularity with his col-
leagues were only two of his
outstanding char-
acteristics.
Ben was always there
when needed to provide ad-
vice and had unfailing
energies on behalf of the
causes he believed in. In
particular, his sharp ques-
tioning of State Department
witnesses during numerous
hearings on the Middle East
stand out.
There was no one quite
like Ben Rosenthal in the
House of Representatives
and he will be sorely missed.

Arabic Adopted
as UN Language

UNITED NATIONS
(ZINS) — The Security
Council has adopted a reso-
lution passed by the Gen-
eral Assembly two years
ago making Arabic the
sixth official language of
the UN.
The change is expected to
cost the UN $1.9 million the
first year. Arabic joins
Chinese, English, French,
Russian and Spanish as an
official UN language.
