Rosenne Takes Long, Positive View of U.S.-Israel Relations

By DAVID FRIEDMAN

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Meir Rosenne, Israel's new
Ambassador to the United
States, believes that rela-
tions between Israel and the
U.S. have always been good
because the two countries
share the common princi-
ples of democracy and free-
dom and that the reports of
U.S. pressure on Israel have
been exaggerated.
"I don't think that the
talk about American pres-

sure on Israel is true," he
said in an interview with
the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency. "It is utterly false."
Instead, Rosenne argues
that the U.S. has used its
"good offices" to help Israel
negotiate the Camp David
agreements, the Israel-
Egyptian peace treaty and
the recent agreement with
Lebanon.
52-year-old
The
Rosenne has the creden-
tials to make this point.
As legal adviser to the Is-
rael Foreign Ministry
from 1971 to 1979, he par-
ticipated in the negotia-
tions with Egypt and
Syria following the 1973
Yom Kippur War and in
all the negotiations lead-
ing to the peace treaty
with Egypt. He headed
the Israeli team for the
autonomy negotiations
until he was named Am-
bassador to France in
1979, a post he held until
coming to Washington

June 5.
Rosenne appeared to ar-
rive at a time of almost
euphoric relations between
Israel and the U.S. follow-
ing the Israeli-Lebanese
agreement that had been
signed May 17. But he
stressed that the reports of a
"terrible relationship be-
tween our two countries"
that had existed since Israel
went into Lebonon were
exaggerated. He said there
were "differences of opin-
ion" but "this does not mean
there is a major crisis in the
relationship between the
two countries."
In Rosenne's opinion, the
problems have developed
because in the past 35 years
Mideast peace has been
negotiated between Jews
and Jews or with friends be-
cause, with the exception of
Egypt,"the Arab countries
don't want to sit down with
us at the negotiating table."
But; "in order to reach
peace in the Middle East

ORLANDO, Fla. — A
book of Mother Goose nur-
sery rhymes may be banned
from libraries in Miami and
Orlando because one of the
rhymes is anti-Semitic, the
Florida Jewish Heritage re-
ported.
The fate of the volume,
"Mother Goose Nursery
Rhymes" by Arthur Rac-
kham (Viking, 1975), is cur-
rently being decided by the
Dade County Library Advi-
sory board, the Heritage
said.

his "task" as presenting Is-
rael's position both to the
U.S. government and to the
general public. He noted
that billions of dollars are
spent in "campaigns of vil-
lification of the state of Is-
rael." He specifically men-
tioned efforts to rewrite his-
tory by denying the
Holocaust happened and
the "selective memory"
which forgets that the Jews
who left the Arab countries
were expelled, leaving be-
hind their property.
Rosenne also sees as his
task to "strengthen the ties"
with American Jews. He
noted that Israel was estab-
lished by world Jewry and
every Jew is a "share-
holder" in Israel.

MEIR ROSENNE

there should be negotia-
tions between the Arab
states and the state of Is-
rael," Rosenne said. "But
this has been rejected by the
Arab states because they
hope that peace can be im-
posed from the outside .. .
They hope that others will
do the job for them either by
imposing sanctions" as the
European Economic Com-
munity did last year "or by
giving the impression that
Israel is intransigent."
But Rosenne said that
Israel has shown in its
negotiations with Egypt
that it was "ready to give
up a lot ... in order to
sign a peace treaty with
the first Arab state that
was ready to negotiate
with us."
As for Syria, Rosenne
noted that since 1948 it was
always the last Arab state
willing to sign an agree-
ment with Israel. He
pointed out that Syria now
controls 50 percent of Leba-
non and has never accepted
the idea of an independent
Lebanon nor ever had an
Ambassador in Beirut. "We
hope there will be an Israeli
Ambassador in Beirut," he
added.
Rosenne is still hopeful
that Syria would agree to
withdraw. "We hope that
the Syrians will reach the
conclusion that in 1983 you
just can't dominate a sover-
eign state and agree to re-
spect the sovereign rights of
Lebanon and the territorial
integrity of this country,"
he said.
Until then, Israeli troops

will remain in Lebanon but
there will be a redeploy-
ment which will be done in a
way as not to endanger the
lives of civilians or Israeli
troops, Rosenne stressed.
He said Lebanese troops
will take over the positions
vacated by Israel and he be-
lieves that the Lebanese
army is now "numerically
and qualitatively" capable
of preventing the Syrians
from moving into these
areas. .
Rosenne was born in
Isai, Romania and as a
child he saw 10,000 Jews
taken from his town and
killed by Nazi troops and
their Romanian suppor-
ters. His family fled to
Palestine and he went to
school in Tel Aviv before
receiving a Masters de-
gree in political science
and a Doctorate in inter-
national law at the Sor-
bonne. He is also a
graduate of the Institute
for Advanced Interna-
tional Studies in Paris.
He was Israeli Consul
General in New York
from 1961 to 1967 and re-
presented Israel on var-
ious international bodies.
It is this background that
accounts for the way he sees
his job. "Every Israeli
representative knows he is
a Jew and an Israeli," he
said. "You represent not
only the Jews that live in
Israel today, but you also
represent all those that
didn't have this privilege of
seeing the Israeli flag, those
that died in the ghettoes,
the concentration camps
and all those that fought in
the War of Independence."
