regional water plan to de-
velop and allocate the area's
water resources. The Is-
raelis, he claims, are seek-
ing to make Israel self-
sufficient in water and he
asserts that Israel's plans to
divert water from Leba-
non's Litani River would
prevent development of
southern Lebanon and
would require Israeli mili-
tary control of a large area
of Lebanon.
"Israeli planners pri-
vately admit," he declares,
"that unless the country
concentrates purely on ex-
pensive desalination plants,
or finds a way to increase
substantially the present
recycling of used irrigation
and waste water, present
aquifers can scarcely meet
the country's current needs
or greater levels of con-
sumption much beyond
1990. Another major water
source will be needed.
"The hydraulic impera-
tive, from the Israeli point
of view," Cooley argues, "is
capturing either the Litani
or a much greater share of
the Yarmuk. Whether Is-
rael moves unilaterally or
whether the region returns
to the Eisenhower-Johnson
concepts of finding ways to
share the Earth's most pre-
cious resource for the com-
mon good, will help deter-
mine the future political
geography of the Middle
East."
Only the United States,
Cooley says, can persuade
the regional states to return
to the idea of planned water
sharing and development as

400 attend
economic parley
in Jerusalem

Jerusalem (JTA) — More
than 400 foreign
businessmen from 27 coun-
tries are attending the
Jerusalem Economic Con-
ference which opened here
Sunday night. They include
steel magnates from West
Germany, representatives
of major electronics firms in
the U.S., bankers, leaders of
the automobile industry in
Europe and a variety of
businessmen from South
Africa. Most are not Jewish.
The conference, toward
which the government allo-
cated about $700,000, is
aimed at inducing foreign
investments in Israel. The
delegates will be-addressed
by Israeli leaderltepresent-
ing the government and the
opposition and will mingle
with about 200 Israeli
businessmen at various
local industrial plants.
The conference is the
third major international
get-together in Israel for
economic cooperation. The
first was held in 1968 and
_the „second in 1973..

part of any really practical
peace package. The Reagan
Plan, he says, "is adequate
to the task."
He calls on Israel to reas-
sure the West Bank Arabs
that Israel does not intend
to expel them and to permit
them to use their own wells
and water resources again.
If Israel needs some Litani
and Yarmuk water, he says,
it should say so and propose
ways in which available
water resources can be de-
veloped for the benefit of all
riparian states. •.
Further, he says, a public
declaration by Israel that it
does not intend unilateral
diversion or seizure of Li-
tani, Orontes or other
"Arab" watePs would be
helpful if it were matched
by Arab assurances to Israel
and guaranteed as part of a
larger peace package
endorsed by the United

States and other powers.
The United States,
Cooley advises, should
make it clear it will not
tolerate military campaigns
by Israel or anyone else to
seize additional land or re-
sources. It should firm'
back Lebanon's plans to di
velop Litani water re-
sources within a sovereign
state free from foreign troop
occupation. It should warn
Israel against proceeding
with the Med-Dead canal
without prior agreement
with Jordan and should
press for completion of the
Maqarin Dam on the Yar-
muk in Jordan.

These steps, Cooley as-
serts, could "prove to be the
bare minimum required to
head off a. new war over
Mideast resources — a war
that would be the most de-
structive yet seen."

UN

chief avoids controversy
in speech to AJCommittee

BY DR. MARC TANENBAUM

The Secretary General of
the United Nations, Javier
Perez de Cuellar delivered
his first address before a
Jewish audience when he
spoke at the annual meet-
ing of the American Jewish
Committee in New York
earlier this month. It was a
risky undertaking for both
sides.
The AJCommittee risked
misunderstanding in the
Jewish community for pro-
viding a platform for the
highest official of the UN
which is rightly perceived
as the "bulliest" interna-
tional platform of political
anti-Semitism in the world
today. The UN Secretary
General risked alienating
the Soviet Union, the Arab
and Third World blocs who
clearly were not happy at
hi's accepting AJCommit-
tee's invitation.
As it turned out, the
speech was not as bad, as
some feared it might be, nor
was it as good as some hoped
it might be. The gains in his
talk were several-fold:
He acknowledged several
times that "positions taken
by several bodies of the
United Nations have
aroused misgivings and
even resentment." And de
Cuellar flatly said that
"there- is no excuse for mis-
takes or wring judgments or
erroneous courses." Jews
took that euphemism to
mean that, according to the
Secretary General, there
was no excuse for the hor-
rendous attacks on Israel
and Zinoism, the incite-
ments to hatred by Arab na-
tions and the Soviet Union
y. ,which .consistently violate

the U.N. Charter and U.N.
declarations.
DeCuellar also affirmed
repeatedly the "rich tradi-
tion of tolerance, compas-
sion, and maganimity" • of
the Jewish people, as well as
"the broad and humane con-
cern of the American
Jewish Committee with the
problems of mankind."
Those affirmations, among
others, were taken as im-
plicit rejection of the vicious
defamation of the Jewish
people and of Judaism by
Iran, Syria and Lybia at the
United Nations in recent
months.
The U.N. official also
spoke of the need "to strive
for an arrangement which
encompasses the security of
Israel and the other states
in the area as well as the
political and human rights
of the Palestinians."
In his response, Howard
Friedman, AJCommittee
president, respectfully
pointed out that "the politi-
cal behavior of U.N.
member nations will need to
be altered if U.N. credibility
is to be restored."
