Israel Considering Hebron Plan

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The Israeli government ap-
pears ready to revive a con-
troversial plan to expand
the Jewish quarter in Heb-
ron. It is strongly supported
by Jewish settlers and their
advocates in the Knesset
and government. But some
Likud MKs have expressed
reservations over the cost at
a time of economic re-
trenchment, and possible
political repercussions.
Nevertheless, a discus-

what is now the Arab
market-place. The market
would be relocated and ven-
dors compensated at a cost,
estimated by the Defense
Ministry, of about $1.6 mil-
lion. This does not include
rebuilding the Jewish quar-
ter itself.

Nobel Prize Winner Decries
Anti-Semitism in Argentina

BUENOS AIRES (JTA)
— Adolfo Perez Esquivel,
winner of the 1980 Nobel
Peace Prize for his struggles
on behalf of human rights,
stated that there is "sys-
tematic anti-Semitic ac-
tivity" in Argentina which
"must be overcome" in an
article in Argumento, the
news organ of President
Raul Alfonsin's Radical
Party.
The World Jewish
Congress-Latin American
Branch reported that this
article is one of a number of
such pieces included in an
unprecedented feature sec-
tion in the newspaper on
Argentinian anti-
Semitism.
The other pieces were
written by prominent mem-
bers of the Jewish commu-
nity: Herman Schiller and -
Marshall Meyer, of the
Jewish Movement for
Human Rights; and Dr.
Nehemias Resnizky, former
president of the DAIA, the
central representative body
of Argentine Jewry and the

Perez Esquivel ex-
pressed the view that
there is an absence of
knowledge among
Argentines in general
about the Jewish com-
munity and stressed the

Saudis Buy French Arms

PARIS (JTA) — France
and Saudi Arabia have con-
cluded a $3 billion arms
agreement providing for the
sale of French-made highly
sophisticated electronic
equipment.
The French Defense
Ministry and the manufac-
turers, the state-owned
Thomson-C.S.F., said that
they have been asked by the
Saudis not to disclose de-
tails of the agreement, re-
puted to be the most impor-
tant of its kind ever con-
cluded by France.
The usually reliable Le
Monde said France will
supply the Saudi Air Force
with the latest French
ground-to-air missile, the
Shahine, and radar equip-
ment to guide it to targets.
The Shahine, a top secret
weapon, is reputed in
aeronautical circles to be
the world's most efficient —
and most expensive —
anti-aircraft missile of its
kind.
It would be used
mainly to protect Saudi

airports, missile bases
and oil production
facilities. The French are
also scheduled to export
advanced training
equipment for the Saudi
personnel who will man
the missiles. French ex-
perts and Air Force per-
sonnel are to be stationed
at Saudi bases for the
next-several years.
Saudi Arabia, which has
been trying to diversify its
arms supplies, has become
an important French client
over the last few years.
In 1975, the Saudis
bought Crotale ground-to-
air missiles which until now
formed its main anti-
aircraft defense network.
The Saudis also equipped
their armored brigades with
French AMX-30 tanks,
which since 1980 have car-
ried supersonic missiles
produced by France.
Also, in 1980, the Saudis
bought in France four fri-
gates and 24 combat
helicopters equipped with
air-to-ground missiles.
