ZOA Speakers Hit U.S. M.E. Policies

Sen. Joseph Biden (D-Del.),
called on President Reagan
on Sunday "to read the mes-
sage of Congress" and ship
F-16 jet fighter-bombers to
Israel. He also urged the
President to halt all arms
sales to Arab nations in the



Middle East and declared
that the U.S. should begin
to treat Israel "as an ally
and brother and not wash
dirty laundry in public."
Biden, a member of the
Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, spoke at the
luncheon session of the 83rd
national convention of the
Zionist Organization of
America. He said American
public opinion is beginning
to understand what is at
stake in the Middle East,
"that oil is not a weapon,
that the Israelis are the
ones who have made conces-
sions in Lebanon" and that
it is the Syrians, the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion and the Lebanese gov-
ernment which are "in-

of Metropolitan Detroit

Alleck Resnick, a Balti-
more lawyer, was elected
president of the ZPA, suc-
ceeding Ivan Novick of
Pittsburgh. Resnick is a
member. of the executive of
the World Union of General
Zionists and since 1978 a
member of the General
Council of the World Zionist
Organization. Before his
election to the presidency of
the ZOA he served 'as
chairman of its national
executive committee.
Addressing the ZOA
convention Friday, El-
liott Abrams, Assistant
Secretary of State for
Human Rights and
Humanitarian Affairs,
charged that the Soviet
Union and the PLO are
the "forefront of the
newest form of anti-
Semitism which accuses
Jews of being in league
with the forces of evil."
He said that "the most
important assumption bind-

ing the Cubans, Viet-
namese, the Sandinistas of
Nicaragua, the PLO and the
Soviets together is the
theme that the United
States is the incarnation of
evil" and that groups and
nations such as Israel, asso-
ciated with the U.S. or sym-
pathetic to it, are "equally
Abrams observed that the
Soviets assert that "Zionism
is the enemy of all man-
kind." In .this, he said, "we
are dealing with a great
threat to the survival of
Jews and Judaism in the
Soviet Union, the survival
of Israel and indeed to the
survival of freedom in the
Also addressing the 500
convention delegates Fri-
day, Sen. Arlen Specter
(R-Pa.) declared that when
the U.S. puts sufficient
pressure on the Soviets so
that they must respond for
their own self-interest, pro-
gress will be made in the
cause of Soviet Jews. .
Referring to the Middle
East, Specter described
Israel as having liberated
Lebanon and said it was
"unmitigated gall" that
the Lebanese govern-
ment should refuse to
recognize Israel. He said
that until there is recog-
nition of Israel's right to
exist, "how can anyone
call on Israel to make

that it is "the Arab refusal
to accept and recognize Is-
rael whiCh is the obstacle to
"It appears that the tradi-
tional scenario continues,"
Novick said. "Israel is ready
for direct negotiations, the
Arabs are not. Israel is
branded as inflexible, and
the Arabs can sit back and
wait for the U.S. to lean on
Israel for more conces-

Shultz Optimistic About Accord

Secretary of State George
Shultz _held high-level dis-
cussions with Israeli lead-
ers on Wednesday after an
overnight visit to Beirut
where he held further talks
with President Amin
Gemayel and other
Lebanese leaders.
Reporters accompanying
Shultz on his shuttles
quoted him as saying he
hoped to conclude the
negotiations by the
weekend when he plans to
fly to Paris for a NATO
meeting. According to Is-
raeli observers, Premier
Menahem Begin called his
Cabinet into special session
this morning in order to
make the final crucial deci-

sions. Shultz. met with Be-
gin, Foreign Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir, and Defense
Minister Moshe Arens on
Wednesday morning.

Reports from Beirut were
less than optimistic after
Shultz's latest round of
talks there. Lebanese
Foreign Minister Elie
Salem was quoted as saying
that as one born in the Mid-
dle East he was less san-
guine than the Secretary of
State over the prospects of
reaching an agreement
quickly. He reportedly said
that a miracle was needed to
wrap up an accord now, but
added that miracles happen
some times.

Meanwhile, IDF Chief

of Staff Gen. Moshe Levy,
briefing the Knesset's
Foreign Affairs and Se-
curity Committee on
Wednesday, confirmed
that Syrian forces in
eastern Lebanon are still
in a state of prepared-
ness. He said it was dif-
ficult to read Syria's in-

The almost daily casual-
ties suffered by Israeli
forces in Lebanon are add-
ing to pressure on the gov-
ernment to make a decisive
move; either conclude an
agreement or, failing that,
unilaterally pull back to the
Awali River line, the boun-
dary of the 28-mile security
zone in south Lebanon.
