called away on "unforeseen
matters of state" outlined
Sunday evening reasons
why he thought the UN
would never achieve the
goals set forth at its incor-
poration.
Speaking to nearly 1,700
persons at the 69th an-
niversary dinner on behalf
of Beth Yehudah Schools at
Fairlane Manor, Lichtens-
tein said "The UN is not
now, never was and never
will be a rational forum ..
preventing conflict or .fos-
tering economic develop-
ment or enhancing human
rights."
Lichtenstein read a quote
from William Penn, in
which the Pennsylvania
founder envisioned a "par-
liament of princes" who
would work for "the peace of
Europe." "That dream will
never be fulfilled," Lichten-
stein concluded.

He proceeded to de-
scribe both the U.S. and
Soviet Union's positions
in the international
forum.

To preface his remarks,
Lichtenstein said the "pro-
liferation of nations" from
52 in 1945 to 158 today was
a roadblock to achieving the
goals originally set forth by
the world body.
"Most of these nations
don't share the values of the
American people, the
Judeo-Christian tradition,"
he said. "They create a
happy playground for the
Soviet Union, with which
most are not allied, most
fear and most wouldn't
want to submit to," but
added that they still give
the Soviets their support
and their votes.
He decried what he called
the "disgraceful obscenity"
of the Zionism equals ra-
cism canard of the 1970s
and called it "a symbol of
the controlling bloc that
dominates politics in the
UN."

In light of these,
Lichtenstein said it is an
"absolute impossibility"
for a "peacetime al-
liance" between the
Soviet Union and world
democracies because
"totalitarianism cannot
co-exist with freedom."

On the topic of why the
U.S. should remain in the
UN, Lictenstein said "it is
our fate to remain in the
UN. If we don't remain in
the UN to defend freedom
. . . I despair that there is
any other defender, or coun-
try that would so affirm the
cause of freedom."
Lichtenstein alluded to
what he called the "strength
of President Reagan" and
gave examples that he said
he felt boosted Reagan's
popularity with the Ameri-
can electorate:
"Reagan has begun to
build a foundation of U.S.
foreign policy that meets
requirements of our country
that wins approval of most
of the American electorate";

"He has a willingness
to commit U.S. power, to
commit force prudently,
proportionate to a

schools this year.

Lichtenstein said recent
events also have helped to
"crystallize" Reagan's ap-
proach to foreign policy: the
shooting down of the KAL
007 airliner, Lebanon .and
the Grenada "rescue mis-
sion."
He said all of these events
had a common thread — the
distinction between the
Soviets' use of force for "in-
timidation" and the U.S.
use of force to "preserve
freedom." Lichtenstein
added that the "free and
democratic state of Israel" is
a "partner (with the U.S.) in
making the distinction. The
shared commitment to the
cause of freedom, that is the
tie that binds the U.S. and
Israel."
The dinner was the occa-
sion to present the Golden
Torah Award to Jack
Shenkman, whose many
gifts to the community and
awards for his generosity
were recalled during the
presentation ceremonies. In
celebration of the 43rd an-
niversary of his marriage to
his wife, Miriam,
Shenkman donated a lib-
rary to the girls' affiliate,
the Sally Allan Alexander
Beth Jacob School for Girls.

Blot on German-Israel Ties
If Bonn Sells Arms to Arabs'

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Deputy Foreign Minister
Yehuda Ben-Meir warned
of a "cloud" that could dar-
ken Israeli-German rela-
tions: the possibility that
Bonn might sell advanced
weaponry to Saudi Arabia
or other Arab countries.
Delivering a keynote
speech on the opening day of
the annual meeting of the
Israel-Germany Friendship
Association, Ben-Meir said
Israel could not agree with
nor acquiesce in such a
prospect. Israeli sources
forecast intensified dip-
lomatic action by Jerusalem
in the weeks ahead de-
signed to forestall any arms
sales.

Recently,
following
Chancellor Helmut Kohl's
visit to Saudi Arabia, Ger-
man officials sought to dis-
tinguish between offensive
weapons, such as the
Leopard 2 tank, and defen-
sive weapons such as anti-
tank devices and anti-
aircraft systems. But Israel
has declared firmly that it
recognizes no such distinc-
tion. Ben-Meir dwelt on the
"special character" of the
Bonn-Jerusalem relation-
ship, a character molded by
the Holocaust experience.
