ATLANTA, Ga. (JTA) —
President Chaim Herzog of
Israel hinted very strongly
that America's policy of
standing tough against
Soviet and Cuban activity
in central America deserves
the support of the Jewish
people. But he stopped just
short of explicitly endorsing
the Reagan Administra-
tion's current policy as the
official Israeli position.
Nevertheless, his address

Israel and the United States
and was also viewed as a
speech uncharacteristic of a
president of Israel who usu-
ally delivers ceremonial
and non-political addresses
to American Jewish audi-
ences.
In a tough, no-nonsense,
sledgehammer attack on
the Soviet Union and its al-
lies in the Middle East,
primarily Syria, Herzog
told the Jewish communal
leaders from the U.S. and
Canada, "What you have
been experiencing in your
own vicinity is not new to
us. Already, in 1974, we
faced Cuban armored
brigades on the Golan
Heights, not to mention the
inevitable North Korean
and North Vietnamese ele-
ments."
In 1974 Israel also
faced Soviet missiles on
the Golan Heights in the
hands of the Syrians,
Herzog recalled, and
today the Damascus re-
gime "is backed, armed
and trained by the Soviet
Union, with some 7,000
Soviet military advisers
in its armed forces. It has
one of the fastest growing
armies in the world in
addition to being host, on
its own soil, to Soviet
combat forces and a con-
centration of Soviet-
manned missiles which
threaten not only Israel
and Jordan but also the
Sixth Fleet in the Eastern
Levant."
Herzog stressed that Is-
rael has "no, illusions what-
soever about the purpose of
these forces here or
elsewhere and we, in the
midst of all our national de-
bates on many issues, have
no debate whatsoever as to
the real purpose of these
forces and how to stand up
to them. I think it is about
time, too, that we as Jews
realized the nature of these
forces and that we should
finally call a spade a spade."
The real purpose of these
forces, the Israeli president
declared, is "to kill Jews and
to create the conditions for a
new Holocaust. I would ask
my fellow Jews to re-
member this when they
view the activities of thee
evil forces in the world,
wherever they might be,
and react to efforts to neut-
ralize them."
Behind all the forces of
evil, "as everywhere, in-
cluding in your own hemis-
phere, not so far from here,
looms the ominous Soviet
presence, pouring in the
weapons of death, sabotage,
of terror, of hatred and of
subversion," Herzog said.
"Our bitter experience
has been that this pur-
veryor of death will stop
at nothing as long as it
feels that it can get away
with it. It is not for us to
tender evidence to
others. We are only a
small nation, fighting for
our existence. What we
can do is to apply the les-
son that we have learned
from bitter experience,
namely that there can be
no truck or compromise
with these forces of evil."

Herzog noted that for a
long time Israel has been
accused of being intransi-
gent for refusing to com-
promise with terror. "Now
that the United States and
France have also had to
make a painful and tragic
sacrifice (in the terrorist
bombing attacks on their
armed forces in Lebanon
last month, perhaps some of
those in the world who were
so ready with criticism in
the past will begin to under-
stand the nature of the
enemy we have faced alone
for years and to appreciate
our motivation," the Israeli
president said, to sustained
applause.
Discussing the situation
of world Jewry, Herzog said
the Jewish people is under
attack on two fronts and
that attack has "assumed
sinister dimensions." One is
the open Soviet-inspired at-
tack which found its full ex-
pression in the November
1975 United Nations Gen-
eral Assembly resolution
condemning Zionism as a
form of racism.
"The other arm of the at-
tack which, in my view, is
the more serious and the
more sinister, because it is

so much more subtle, is the
process of disinformation in
the West, which creates the
atmosphere in which the
more brutal political and
physical anti-Semitic at-
tacks can be mounted with
