Can Israel Say 'No'
To Washington?

For years, Israeli officials and -
their most active political sup-
porters in the American Jewish
community have harped on the
theme that Israel is a major
strategic asset for the United
States in the Middle East.
The argument, of course, has
focused on the point that the
strong American-Israeli connec-
tion represents a two-way street
— that yes, the United States
provides Israel with enormous
economic, military and political
support, but Israel also provides
a service to the United States
and, indeed, to the entire West-
ern world.
Over the years, most Middle
East specialists at the State
Department — the so-called
"Arabists" — have pushed hard
to avoid establishing an overly
public U.S.-Israeli strategic alli-
ance. They have argued that
such ties would undermine the
U.S. position in the Arab world.
But President Reagan, during
the first term of his Admin.
istration, was willing to risk
that threat. He authorized en-
hanced strategic cooperation
with Israel, including joint
aerial and naval maneuvers, pre-
positioning of U.S. military
equipment in Israel and joint
contingency planning. The
Arabs have come to basically
swallow this highly visible for-
malization of the American-Is-
raeli military relationship.
All of this helps to explain
why senior Administration offi-
cials, including the President
himself, have been somewhat
disappointed by Israel's slow
response to Reagan's personal
request that Israel allow the
United States to build several
powerful radio transmitters in
Israel. These transmitters would
help the U.S. government fund-
ed Voice of America, Radio Free
Europe and Radio Liberty to
overcome sophisticated Soviet
jamming.
The Americans believe that
Israel eventually will agree to
the U.S. request. Israeli officials
said they already had agreed "in

principle" to the U.S. proposal
with some remaining questions
yet to be resolved. The two
countries are currently examin-
ing various technical aspects of
the project. But there is no de-
nying that senior Administra-
tion officials, influential mem-
bers of Congress on both sides
of the political aisle and even
leading members of the Jewish
political establishment would
have preferred a speedy and
clearcut Israeli "yes" to the pro-
posal. The Chairman of the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organiza-
tions, Kenneth Bialkin of New
York, wrote to Ambassador
Meir Rosenne in Washington to
urge an affirmative Israeli
response.
Israel's geography, U.S. offi-
cials concluded as early as the
mid 1970's, is ideally suited for
broadcasts to reach large chunks
of the Soviet Union, including
its "underbelly," the largely
Moslem provinces in the south-
ern sections of the country. But
at that time, "Arabists" suc-
ceeded in convincing the U.S.
government not to raise the idea
with Israel. They were worried
about a negative Arab reaction
to such a highly visible U.S.-
Israeli cooperative venture.
But the Soviets intensified
their jamming techniques. As a
result, the U.S. secretly floated
the idea for the first time in
1979. The Foreign Ministry in
Jerusalem quickly raised all
sorts of concerns about the po-
tential complications for Soviet
Jewry. Some Israeli officials
also feared that such a course
might make it even more diffi-
cult for the Soviet Union to re-
establish diplomatic relations
with Israel, severed during the
1967 Six-Day War.
Since then, however, the So-
viet jamming of the American
broadcasts has continued to
worsen. While U.S. officials
were sensitive to Israel's stated
concerns, they concluded that
the increased dangers to the
Soviet Jews were minimal. So-
viet emigration last year was
less than 900. Bialkin and many
other Jewish leaders as well as
most Soviet Jewry activists on
Capitol Hill agreed.
The Americans also recog-
nized that the enhanced military
and strategic cooperation be-
tween the U.S. and Israel was
already publicly directed against
the Soviet threat to the region.
Why not add this additional
vital link?
Earlier Israeli fears were no
longer viable in an era of such
public U.S.-Israeli strategic
cooperation aimed against the
Soviet threat, according to the
Americans.
This helps to explain why
President Reagan, in an extraor-
dinary diplomatic development,
wrote personally to Prime Min-
ister Shimon Peres about the
radio transmitters. The letter
pointedly underscored the con-
