Washington — The unofficial
theme of the 27th annual
American Israel Public Affairs
Committee (AIPAC) policy con-
ference turned out to be ter-
rorism. Speaker after speaker,
including Senators, Administra-
tion officials and Israeli repre-
sentatives, addressed the subject
at the pro-Israel lobby's three-
day meeting last week.
The other chief issue of dis-
cussion, talked about privately
among the thousand or so par-
ticipants more than in public
forums, was AIPAC's controver-
sial decision not to oppose the
Administration's proposed $350
millions Saudi arms deal. (See
Leading the call for the U.S.
to take a tougher stand on ter-
rorism were Israeli Ambassador
to the U.S. Meir Rosenne and
Israeli Ambassador to the
United Nations Benjamin
Netanyahu. Rosenne called for
cutting off commercial relations
with countries, such as Saudi
Arabia, which provide financial
assistance to the PLO and other
terrorist groups. He criticized
those who claim there are "bad"
terrorists like Abu Nidal and
"good" terrorists like Yassir
Arafat, and Western states that
have "accorded virtual diploma-
tic status on the PLO."
Netanyahu was even tougher.
"There is absolutely no way of
winning the war on terrorism if
you say (to countries that har-
bor terrorists). "You are inviola-
ble,' " Ambassador Netanyahu
said, adding that Western gov-
ernments already possess
enough evidence against certain
nations to justify strikes against
military targets in those coun-
"Only the United States can
align the West to organize a
common defense. The more
America resorts to action, the
greater the number of states
that will join the effort,"
The UN ambassador, brother
of Entebbe-rescue hero Jonathan
Netanyahu, outlined a three-
pronged strategy for Western
governments to adopt in their
battle against what he called, "a
new form of war."
"First must come political
sanctions," he said. "Today we
have left-wing terrorists and
governments that support them.
These are the key elements we
have to face. Governments are
susceptible to pressure. This
(political sanctions) says to
them, 'I know what you're doing
— I'm calling your bluff.' "
Netanyahu called for Western
governments to cut diplomatic
relations with countries that
harbor or protect terrorists, and
to shut those nations' embassies.
That would also eliminate their
access to diplomatic "pouches,'
which Netanyahu said could be
anything from a briefcase to a
"half a house."
"You could fit a squad of ter-
rorists in there," he said.
The second prong, according
to Netanyahu, is economic sanc-
tions, including the denial of
landing rights to airliners from
"The third step is. selective
military strikes. "A successful
war on terrorism will involve a
series of blows and counter-
blows. There are no one-shot
solutions," the ambassador said.
Netanyahu also said that re-
sponsibility for airline security
should be taken by governments
instead of airlines. "You don't
have private highway
patrolmen," he said. "No one
says, 'This stretch of highway is
in front of Howard Johnson's, let
Howard Johnson's be responsi-
ble for it.' "
Netanyahu was preceded at
the conference by Attorney Gen-
eral Meese who said the Ad-
ministration was "giving the
highest priority to going after
those who control" terrorist
groups. He said that because of
the sensitive nature of talks at
the White House regarding
anti-terrorist measures, he could
not discuss details. He did say
