THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
On 'Star Wars'
Jerusalem (JTA) — Leading
Knesset members have called for
exhaustive parliamentary discus-
sion before Israel decides how to
respond to Washington's invita-
tion to participate in Star Wars
On Sunday, Victor Shemtov
(Mapam), acting chairman of the
Foreign Affairs and Security
Committee, suggested a full de-
bate in that committee. Earlier,
Shevach Weiss (Labor) urged dis-
cussion in the plenary.
The invitation, from U.S. De-
fense Secretary Caspar Wein-
berger to Defense Minister Yit-
zhak Rabin, reached Israel Fri-
day. President Reagan had said
publicly he would offer the NATO
countries, Japan, Australia and
Israel a chance to join in the re-
The Foreign Ministry said a
reply would be sent as soon as
possible. Plainly, the high-level
consultations on the American
invitation will focus not only on
the scientific aspects but also on
possible political repercussions,
given the Soviet Union's intense
sensitivity to Star Wars.
Haaretz reported Sunday that
in three Israeli universities and at
several high-tech companies re-
search work was under way which
could be of relevance to the Star
Wars program. The paper men-
tioned Haifa Technion, the Weiz-
mann Institute and Tel Aviv Uni-
versity. The paper noted, too, that
some space related work, funded
by the U.S., has been done in.these
institutions for years.

ion Airport in 1972.
