ing inflicted on the Jewish
people by German-
s." Kohl reiterated West
Germany's long-standing
position on the Middle
East conflict. He said a
political settlement in the
region should be based
on the resolutions of the
Arab summit meeting in
Fez, Morocco, President
Reagan's Sept. 1, 1982
peace initiative and the
Venice declaration of the
EEC heads of state in
June 1980.
The latter supported the
right of all states in the
region to live within secure,
recognized borders and the
right of the Palestinian
people to self-
determination. "Peace is
not possible against or
without Israel nor is peace
possible against or without
the Arab side," Kohl said.
Kohl's visit to the Yad
Vashem Holocaust Memo-
rial on Tuesday, shortly
after arriving in Jerusalem,
was without incident, de-
spite protests by various
groups opposed to any Is-
raeli contacts with Ger-
mans. Security precautions
were strict and cordons of
police prevented demon-
strators from reaching the
area around the Holocaust
memorial. One man was ar-
rested trying to raise a
swastika flag. Another pro-
testor threw a stone at
Kohl's car.
Stringent security meas-
ures were taken to protect
the West German visitors.
At least 1,000 police were
assigned to the area of Yad
Vashem.
Several anti-German
demonstrations were
planned and members of
Betar plastered posters
with the yellow Star of
David along Kohl's route
from the airport to
Jerusalem. They were
promptly removed by
police who made it clear
they would tolerate no
unauthorized demon-
strations.
Nevertheless, the West
German flag was conspicu-
ously rare at the airport, in
the streets and at Yad Vas-
hem. It is being displayed
only where demanded by
protocol.
Kohl is the third West
German chancellor to visit
Israel since the state was
founded 35 years ago. Kon-
rad Adenauer was the first,
though he came after leav-
ing office and former Chan-
cellor Willy Brandt was the
second, 11 years ago.

Last week, the Confer-
ence of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organ-
izations sent a cable to
Chancellor Helmut Kohl,
asking him to cancel the
proposed sale. The cable
stated in part: "Israel today
is threatened by Saudi
Arabia. This feudal de-
spotism is notorious for its
hatred of the Jewish people.
No Jew may obtain a visa to
enter Saudi Arabia. No Jew
may work i_n Saudia Arabia.
No Jew is safe from the
poison of international
anti-Semitism which finds
its major source of infection
in Saudi Arabia. No Israeli
is safe from the threat of
PLO terrorism which is
supported in the hundreds
of millions of dollars an-
nually by Saudi Arabia."
In Detroit last week,
Rev. James Lyons of the
Ecumenical Institute for
Jewish Christian
Studies, and Leon Cohan,
vice president of the
Jewish Community
Council, met with West
German Consul Dr.
Joseph Deutz.
They told Dr. Deutz that
Saudi Arabia is an unstable
regime still at war with Is-
rael, and that it transfers
arms to terrorist groups.
They asked the consul to
convey to his government
their hope that West Ger-
many would be involved in
peaceful means of settling
the Middle East disputes,
rather than become an arms
merchant.

Envoy Criticized

BONN (JTA) — Israel's
Ambassador to West Ger-
many, Itzhak Ben-Ari, ac-
cused West German Deputy
Foreign Minister Juergen
Moellemann of harming
prospects for negotiations in
the Middle East by urging
the European nations to put

pressure. on Israel for con-
cessions that would bring
Jordan to the peace table.
Ben-Ari's remarks, pub-
lished in a Die Welt inter-
view, appeared less than a
week before Chancellor
Helmut Kohl's visit to Is-
rael.
Diplomats here said it
was unusual for an envoy to
so sharply criticize a
member of the government.
Moelleman is president of
the German-Arab Friend-
ship Association and the
most outspoken critic of Is-
rael on the Bonn political
scene.
