Churba Sees Israel as 'Unaligned' Power

The director of the Center
for International Security,
Joseph Churba, suggested
this week that because of
the inability of the United
States to • offset Soviet ad-
venturism in the Middle
East, Israel might consider
reshifting its policy away
from the U.S. and 'become
an "unaligned" third power
in the Mideast.
Israel, Churba told some
100 persons attending a
conference on U.S. policy in
the Mideast here, should
"emerge from its status as
an undervalued strategic
asset of the United States to
that of a third unaligned
power" in the region, "shift-
ing its weight East or West
in accordance with its secu-
rity needs." The conference
was sponsored by the

Sephardic House at
Churba, who worked with
President Reagan as an ad-
visor on foreign and defense
policy during Reagan's
presidential campaign, said
such a move by Israel would

create a "triangle" effect in •
which Jerusalem would
have to be considered in any
moves in the Mideast by
either the U.S. or the Soviet
Union. He noted that the Is-
raeli military is ranked as
the fourth best in the world..

Survivors Group Criticizes
Award for UN Ambassador

The executive secretary of
the Holocaust Survivors
Association, U.S.A., has is-
sued a sharp attack on
Simon Wiesenthal, the
famed Nazi-hunter, for hav-
ing "committed a tragic er-
ror" when the Simon Wie-
senthal Center presented
its Humanitarian Laureate
Award to Jeane Kirkpat-
rick, the U.S. Ambassador

to the UN.
In an open letter to Wie--
senthal, who is listed as
honorary president of the

Kirkpatrick of serving as an
"apologist for fascist dic-
