to Jerusalem by the Confer-
ence of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Or-
ganizations. While much of
the information was given
in private background brief-
ings, some of it was allowed
to emerge publicly.
President Chaim Herzog,
in welcoming the more than
70 men and women who
participated in the visit to
the President's mansion,
gave a tour de horizon of Is-
rael's problems. But when
he talked about his recent
visit to Zaire and Liberia he
became exuberant.
Herzog told the visiting
American Jews that the
American Jewish com-
munity should "find
ways of expressing its
appreciation of the way
the President of Israel
was received'in the two
countries. He did not ex-
plain what form this
appreciation should
take.
But it is an open secret in
Washington that Israel has
urged U.S. aid for Zaire and
Liberia. Opposition has
been particularly strong in
the House 'Foreign Affairs
Subcommittee on Africa,
headed by Rep. Howard
Wolpe (D-Mich.), a Jew. A
Jewish representative here
noted that Congress has
been reluctant to provide
aid to the two regimes
which many consider cor-
rupt and authoritarian.
Moshe Gilboa, director of
the Foreign Ministry's
World Jewish Affairs Di-
vision, who discussed the
briefings with visiting
Jewish reporters, said the
Herzog trip to Africa had a
good effect on other black
African countries. Israel
hopes that other African
countries will restore dip-
lomatic relations with Is-
rael as did Zaire and
Liberia.
Gilboa noted that reports
on Herzog's visit were car-
ried throughout Africa. He
said Herzog made it clear
that Israel opposes South
Africa's practice of apar-
theid. He said that while Is-
rael exports goods to South
Africa its trade is less than
that of the United States,
West European countries
and even many African
countries.
Latin America is an-
other place where Jewish
Congressmen, and many
non-Jewish Con-
gressmen and Senators
who are staunch suppor-
ters of Israel, have been
among the chief critics of
the Reagan Administra-
tion's policies.
Gilboa noted that many
Latin American countries
have been traditional sup-
porters of Israel. While not
expressing any opinion
about the Reagan Adminis-

dr

tration's policies, he pointed
out that the countries that
are "hostile" to the U.S. —
Cuba, Nicaragua and
Guyana — are also anti-
Israel and support the
Palestine Liberation
Organization.
As for arms, Gilboa
stressed that Israel arms
exports are far less than are
sent to Latin America by
the U.S. and West European
countries.
"Israel does not send arms
to a Latin American coun-
try where there is a civil
war," Gilboa maintained.
"But Israel does send arms
where all Western countries
do."
