tivists for the two Congressmen
were represented at the meet-
ings.
The two Congressmen were
"not confrontational" in their
lengthy meeting with Gor-
bachev, Broomfield said. "But
we had a frank discussion on
the issues that divide us," in-
cluding regional conflicts,• trade,
nuclear arms proliferation and
testing.
"We focussed new attention on
the human rights issue, and it
was important to show the
Soviet leadership that human
rights is not just an issue being
raised by the Reagan Adminis-
tration."
Broomfield and Fascell, the
ranking Republican and Demo-
crat on the House Foreign Af-
fairs Committee, were assured
by Gorbachev that each of the
families on either list would be
investigated on a case-by-case
basis.
"It was sad talking to those
families and understand the
hardships they are going
through," Broomfield said.
"They represent all kinds of
tragic situationsxjobs lost after
applying to emigrate and family
separations. But I think we sent

Rep. William Broomfield

a message to the Russian lead-
ership, and I think they were
receptive."
The last time Broomfield vis-
ited the Soviet Union was 25
years ago during the Cuban
missile crisis. "Not much has
changed since then," he said.
"It's still dreary, and the people
are still waiting to get into
stores to buy a limited amount
of consumer goods. It makes you
glad to be an American."

A Saudi Petro-Party
Creates Negative Image

BY MORRIS J. AMITAY

Special to The Jewish News

Washington — In 1977, when
Georgetown University accepted
a $750,000 donation from Libya
for endowment of a chair in Arab
culture, Art Buchwald, the
humorist, was prompted to ask in
his column whether the univer-
sity might also set up a "Brezhnev
Studies Program in Human
Rights" or an "Idi Amin Chair in
Genocide." Johns Hopkins Uni-
versity's School for Advanced In-
ternational Studies, located
nearby, also accepted a grant of $1
million from the Arab world for
Middle Eastern studies.
Last October, the Saudis
graciously offered the Smithso-
nian Institute a $5 million grant,
but with stipulations. The Saudis
wanted an entire wing devoted to
Islamic culture. Considering the
size of the gift, the size of the re-
quest and the relatively small size
of the museum, the gift caused
some controversy.
Frederick Dutton, Washington
counsel to the Saudi government,
clarified the Saudi perspective:
"What annoys me is they've got
this Holocaust thing (museum)
here, and fine, they should have
it, but they don't want a quality
Islamic thing that would be under
the Smithsonian's control."
But academia and the arts are
not the only areas in which Saudi
Arabia throws money around in
Washington, Besides generous re-
tainers to lobbyists like Dutton to
represent their interests, the
Saudis entertain-in grand style.
In early March, the Saudi Em-
bassy threw a spectacular recep-
tion which even impressed the
jaded social writers of the Wash-

ington Post. The Post story re-
ported that, "Money was spread
like the sands of Arabia and glit-
ter gushed like an oil well when
His Royal Highness Prince Ban-
dar Bin Sultan, the Saudi Ara-
bian ambassador, entertained
last night."
The Post speculated that this
was probably the city's "most ex-
pensive single event ever" to dis-
play a nation's "culture." In this
case this included cast and crew of
200 with no less than 70 models.
Just how long the Saudis will be
able to continue to display their
opulence is a matter of conjecture
with crude oil prices on the spot
market dipping below $12 a
barrel. Already huge develop-
ment projects in the desert king-
dom are being cancelled or mod-
ified and foreign contractors com-
plain of late payments. But this
apparently has not dampened the
Saudi appetite for the latest in
U.S., British and French arms.
Under consideration now is a
Saudi request for some $350 mil-
lion in additional missiles. One of
these is the latest air-to-air Side-
winder missile. While the U.S.
Air Force makes do with about a
dozen reloads' per aircraft in its
fighter inventory, the Saudis
would have three times as many.
But winning friends and in-
fluencing people in the United
States is not always a matter of
money. A Saudi Embassy official
at the March bash is quoted as
saying, "We hope to have many
more parties. like this one. We
want the American people to
know what Saudi Arabia is really
like."
