Simha Dinitz Tells Detroit Leadership
U.S. Marines Are Not Defending Israel

Former Israeli Ambas-

minded an audience here
Monday night that Ameri-
can Marines are in Lebanon
not because Israel asked for
them but because "the
United States felt it was in
its own best interests."

Council leadership, Israel's
former ambassador to the
U.S. said the regrettable
American casualties in
Lebanon were not unex-
pected. "We would never
want it to appear that one
American soldier died in de-
fense of Israel."
For the same reason that
Israel did not want Ameri-
can soldiers stationed in the
Sinai, "we preferred that
there be no multi-national
force in south Lebanon. I
said then that when the first
American soldier dies in de-
fense of Israel that will be
the beginning of the end of a
beautiful friendship be-

tween our two countries."
Dinitz, who neverthe-
less described the friend-
ship as a strong one, was
in Detroit with Robert
Loup, national chairman
of the United Jewish Ap-
peal, for a series of meet-
ings with major Allied
Jewish Campaign con-
tributors. Loup had high
praise for Detroit and its
1984 Campaign chair-
man, Jack A. Robinson,
who accompanied the
visitors.
In an overview of the
Lebanon conflict, Dinitz
said Israel confronted a
no-win situation, and "any-
one who believed someone
could put law and order into
Lebanon is naive."
Not only is a cohesive,
united Lebanon an illusive
goal, he said, we can expect
the situation to worsen be-
tween the Moslems, Druze
and Christians and among
their many factions.
"Israel only seeks to get
out without prejudicing its
minimum gains from the
war: security for the
Galilee," Dinitz said.
In all of his career as a
diplomat, serving under
three Israeli prime minis-
ters and with three
American Presidents,
said Dinitz, "I never
heard anyone tell Israel
`Don't withdraw.' " Now,
however, "the Americans
want us to wait until
there is peace between
Christian and Moslem.
They're waiting for the
milennium."
He suggested that the
United States has suffered
damage to its credibility in
Damascus by removing spe-
cial Mideast envoy Philip
Habib on the grounds that
Syrian President Assad re-
fused to receive him.
In seeking an agreement
"between two countries that
don't recognize each other,
with a third country that
doesn't recognize either
one," the United States
would have fared much bet-
ter five months ago, said
Dinitz. At that time, "Syria
was still in a state of shock
and the Russian adminis-
tration was in transition.
They had not yet supplied
the Syrians with an air de-
fense system. The Syrians
would have had no choice."
Instead, "by the time we
finished dotting the Ts
nand crossing the 'T's, the

Syrians had recouped. It
was impossible to get Syria
to sign."
Dinitz said that most
serious problem in the
Middle East remains the
search for a resolution
of the Palestinian issue
and the West Bank.
He asked his audience to
understand the economic
reality in which Israel finds
herself in the midst of a
military situation not of her
choosing. "The war in
Lebanon costs Israel $1 mil-
lion a day," he said.
In 36 years, Dinitz said,
Israel has begun to build a
country, but it has yet to
build the society envisioned
by its founders. "We have to
live by the values and
standards of a Jewish
society," he said. "We'll
never be able to please any-
one; we're too easy a
scapegoat. But if we are not
`a light unto the nations,' at
least we can be a spark unto
the Jews."
