crease tensions" in the
Mideast by charging that
Israel plans a "piratic
strike" against Syria.
Department
-deputy
spokesman Alan Romberg
said, "We don't have any in-
formation that a buildup is
underway" by the Israeli
army or that Israel plans
any "military action" in the
Bekaa Valley of Lebanon
against the Syrians or
against the SAM-5 surface-
to-air Soviet-made missiles
recently installed in Syria.
Romberg said the ,Soviet
charges may be aimed at
"undermining politiCal ef-
forts of all parties to achieve
a fair and comprehensive
settlement" in the Middle
East.
In Jerusalem, Premier
Menahem Begin said that
Israel "certainly has no in-
tention" to attack Syria, nor
does he believe Syria in-
tends to attack Israel.
Begin's press spokesman,
Uri Porat, said Israel should
"neither treat the -Soviet
statement lightly nor be
frightened by it." He said Is-
raeli_ analysts were study-
ing the Tass statement but
were frankly puzzled by its
=nature and timing.
Israel Radio reported that
the government sees the
Soviet warning aimed at the
U.S., although it' was ad-
dressed to Israel. Porat de-

nied that the report was in-
spired by the prime minis-
ter's office. The Tass state-
ment alleged Israel-
American collusion against
Syria and warned that
Syria was "not alone."
Tass spoke of Israel's
"barbarous aggression"
against Lebanon, and
claimed that Washington's
"unconditional support" for
Israeli aggression was a
prelude to U.S.-Israeli
domination of the entire
Middle East.
Begin met with report-
ers briefly after confer-
ring with Shimon Peres,
chairman of the opposi-
tion Labor Party.
They are believed to have
discussed Peres' recent
meeting with President
Nicolai Ceausescu of
Romania. •
The Tass statement said
Israel's "criminal designs"
against Syria must be
foiled, but did not say Mos-
cow would take any action if
Israel did attack Syria.
Gideon Rafael, a senior
diplomat at that time who
was sent to Moscow to try to
ward off Soviet - provoca-
tions, said that he was "very
concerned" by the current
escalation of Soviet
Rhetoric.
He said the Russians
had proved by the com-
plicity with Syrian and
Egypt in the 1973 war
that on occasion they
would, not object. to an
outbreak of hostilities in
the Middle East if they
thought it would serve
their interests.
Rafael pointed out that
Yuri Andropov, a new and
still untested Soviet leader,
might be seeking a
peripheral showdown with
the U.S. in an area where
Soviet arms employed by
Syria were decisively de-
feated by American-armed
Israeli forces in Lebanon.
But Rafael and other
analysts do not predict
Soviet-provoked hostilities
between Israel and Syria
this spring, although they
do not rule out the possibil-
ity. They contend that Mos-
cow's basic aim is to restore
its position of power and
influence in Middle East
politics to match the influ-
ence -a the United States.
The stepped-up Soviet
rhetoric is consonant
with that aim, Israeli
analysts say. They noted
several recent develop-
ments in the region point-

,

Propaganda
Effect Told

TEL AVIV (ZINS) — PLO
propagandists in Scan-
dinavia have succeeded in
reducing the number of
Norwegians who volunteer
to work on Israeli kibutzim
according to Kaarze Kris-
tiansen of the Norwegian
Democratic Party.
Kristiansen told the
Norway-Israel Friendship
Association • that many
Norwegians now prefer to
work in refugee camps
under PLO auspices, but
that Norwegian public opin-
ion has reverted to its tradi-
tionally friendly 'attitude
toward Israel. .

-

ing to increased Soviet
activism.
These are an expanded
Russian military presence
in Syria; Soviet wooing of
Egypt; the recent Syrian
Soviet joint statement de-
nouncing President
Reagan's Middle East peace
initiative; and energetic
Soviet efforts to influence
the Palestine Liberation
Organization away from
participation in or enforce-
ment of the American in-
itiative.
