visit to Washington of Is-
rael's new prime minister,
Yitzhak Shamir, was pre-
ceded by a spate of news-
paper articles about the
prospect of closer U.S.-
Israel relations. Despite
broad hints from Administ-
ration officials that a new
era of cooperation is at
hand, to date it has been all
talk and no action — and
even some of the talk has
not been that promising.
In return for some minor
U.S. gestures and general
consultation with Israel,
the Administration expects
more Israeli concessions in
Lebanon, a lessening of Is-
rael's opposition to arms
sales to "moderate" Arab
states and reconsideration
of Israel's attitude towards
the defunct Reagan Peace
Plan. This is too tall an
order for U.S. diplomacy —
and certainly too much for
Israel to swallow.
Unless President Reagan
is willing to offer very con-
crete proposals, Israel is not
prepared to jeopardize its
national security in return
for an American pat on the

The paradox of a rela-
tively sympathetic State
Department and a hostile
Defense Department is
largely explainable in
terms of the attitudes of
Secretary of State Shultz
and Defense Secretary
Weinberger. Although
both are former Bechtel
Corp. employees (a firm
with close Saudi Arabian
ties), they differ in their
basic approach to treat-
ment of Israel.

Shultz, whose education
about Middle East politics
was accelerated by personal
rebuffs from Jordan and
Syria, is at least willing to
explore avenues of coopera-
tion and lessening of ten-
sions between Israel and the
U.S. In doing so, he is not
"tilting" toward Israel, but
is showing an appreciation
for the reality of Arab in-
transigence and Israeli re-
Weinberger, on the other
hand, has been an implaca-


Maybe you don't. Hidden food allergies (intolerances)
have been shown to cause a very long list of ailments.
Unlike, for example, hay fever, where almost everyone
gets-watery eyes and a runny nose, your reaction to a given
food may be different than someone else's reaction. Worse
yet, your reaction to a given food can take anywhere from a
few hours to days to appear. By then you may have eaten
other foods that you are also sensitive to keeping the reac-
tion going. That is why we call them "hidden."
A further problem has been that the traditional painful
skin scratch tests are not useful for finding food allergies
(intolerances ).


A partial list of ailments that have been connected to hid-
den food allergies (intolerances) includes: headaches, fat-
igue, insomnia, asthma, rashes, arthritis, depression, rapid
mood changes, migraines, hyperactivity, bed-wetting, joint
and/or muscle pain, diarrhea, hives, overweight, constipa-
tion, etc. Any part of your body can be affected, causing all
kinds of symptoms, not just those listed.

Now, a small tube of your blood, our scientific test for
over 240 foods and chemicals, and our nutritional counsel-
ing including a personalized, computerized diet could make
the dramatic difference in your life. Why suffer any longer?

ble opponent of closer coop-
eration with Israel and this
negative attitude is re-
flected by actions of lower-
ranking Pentagon officials.
The message from the top
has been clear-- stay away
from Israel, we have to
worry about how our Arab
friends will react.
President Reagan ulti-
mately must decide which
view will prevail. But given
his long personal associa-
tion with Weinberger from
their California days to-
gether, and the political
risk of having yet another
Secretary of State resign, he
will probably try to steer a
middle course. This will
simply not be sufficient if
Israel and the U.S. are to
indeed forge an effective
strategic partnership and
pursue the same goals in
achieving peace.
We will know soon
enough if the Reagan-
Shamir summit was show or
substance. The betting in
Washington is that it will
fall very short of what is re-
quired to put U.S. policy to-
ward Israel on the right
course — right for both
countries and right for
peace and stability in the
Middle East.

A back-handed tribute
to Israel's support in the
Congress was paid by
former Presidents Carter
and Ford in November at
the Carter Center at
Emory University in

Carter and Ford com-
plained of Congress thwart-
ing their ability to pressure
Israel and recommended a
"Blue Ribbon Commission"
to set forth guidelines for fu-
ture American policy in the
Middle East.
The conference was nota-
ble for its one-sided attacks
on Israel, thereby fully jus-
tifying Israel's refusal to of-
ficially participate. Those
countries represented were
Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Leba-
non, Syria, Jordan, the
USSR, "the West Bank" and
"the Palestinian commun-
In order to get a flavor of
the four-day proceedings —
and ex-President Carter's
contributions — the
Lebanese and Egyptian

representatives actually
appeared at times to be de-
fending or explaining Is-
rael's positions.

A commission such as
that envisaged by Carter
and Ford would be a threat
to better U.S.-Israel ties and
to Israel's security. It is both
wiser, and part of our sys-
tem of checks and balances,
to have the Congress main-
tain an active role in in-
fluencing foreign policy.
Congress is answerable to
the American people, while
commission members are
answerable to no one, other
than an Arab client here or
Given Carter's recent
pronouncements, one _ might
even wonder whether
brother Billy would be in-
cluded! But the Emory con-
ference was no laughing
matter — and its future in-
itiatives must be monitored
and reacted to accordingly.

In its haste to adjourn
until next January, Con-
gressmen. left
Washington two weeks
ago with a number of
pressing issues affecting
the future availability of
energy from domestic
sources unsolved.

While there was almost
unanimous agreement that
there should be changes in
the law affecting the supply
of natural gas, nothing was
Congress did, however,
place a moratorium on cer-
tain offshore energy de-
velopment leases. Both of
these issues were dealt with
in an atmosphere of "energy
glut" — but wise heads
know that this situation
could change abruPtly.
Although these subjects
are most complicated with
competing interests directly
involved, unless they are
approached with the basic
goal of achieving greater
American energy indepen-
dence, we might once again
be at the tender mercies of
OPEC and the Arab oil-
producing countries. Hope-
fully, the next session of
Congress will bear in mind
these consequences and ap-
proach these issues with
greater resolution than
exhibited this past year.
