Only Israelis Can Make Decisions for Israel, American Jewish Leaders Are Told

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Deputy Premier David Levy
told visiting American
Jewish leaders that the only
people who can make deci-
sions for Israel are -those
who live here.
Speaking in Hebrew at a
luncheon to the Conference
of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organ-
izations, Levy stressed that
while Israel is constantly
being criticized it has no
other choice but to pursue
the policies it is following.
He was critical of the
Reagan Administration for
not keeping Israel informed
on the meetings now going

on in Washington between
President Reagan and King
Hussein of Jordan and
Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak.
Levy talked about the
critical need to close the
social gap in Israel. He
said while there was an
imperative need to im-
prove the economy, there
could be no solution
which created large-
scale unemployment.
Earlier, the Presidents'
Conference heard, in sepa-
rate sessions, Trade and In-
dustry Minister Gideon
Patt and Energy Minister
Yitzhak Modai declare that

Israelis need to cut their
standard of living to im-
prove the economy. Patt
said that while Israel's in-
flation was high, it was not
really 200 percent but actu-
ally 25-27 percent in dol-
lars.
Meanwhile, Leon Dulzin,
chairman of the Jewish
Agency and World Zionist
Organization Executives,
expressed the hope that the
selection of Konstantin
Chernenko to succeed Yuri
Andropov as head of the
Soviet Communist Party
will reopen the emigration
door for Soviet Jews.
"Let's hope that perhaps a

new chapter with regard to
Jews and the possibility of
Jews to leave and come to
Israel" will be written, Dul-
zin told the some 70 persons
participating in the four-
day mission here of the
Presidents' Conference.
Dulzin based his hope
on the fact that Cher-
nenko was "close" to the
late Soviet President
Leonid Brezhnev. He
noted that during
Brezhnev's regime some
260,000 Jews left the
USSR, of whom 165,000
settled in Israel.
In a related development,
former Deputy Foreign

Minister Yehuda Ben-Meir
told visiting American
Jewish leaders that the ef-
fort by Israel and the United
States to help Lebanon
achieve full sovereignty
was no longer achievable.
Speaking at a luncheon
meeting at the Jerusalem
Hilton, Ben-Meir, who is
now a National Religious
Party MK on the commit-
tee, said the Israel army in
south Lebanon can no
longer be used for the politi-
cal purpose of helping
Lebanon achieve sover-
eignty but must concentrate
efforts on realigning to
ensure Israel's major objec-

tive of ensuring the safety
and security of northern Is-
rael.
At the same time, Ben-
Meir rejected the view that
the goal of a free and sover-
eign Lebanon was never
achievable. He said there
were a number of moments
when Lebanon was "on the
verge" of achieving these
objectives. But he said the
Lebanese people "do not
have the will" to come to-
gether for national unity
but retain their separate
identity as members of var-
ious groups. Ben-Meir said
Israel should support the
Christians and Druze.
