Improvement of relations with
Egypt, Prime Minister Shimon Peres
told the Knesset recently, was Is-
rael's foremost foreign policy issue.
But even as he spoke, events in
Egypt were rapidly outrunning the
possibility of improvement through
any Israeli action and were creating
the strong probability of a major se-
curity problem for Israel where one
has not existed since the signing of
the Camp David peace accords seven
years ago.
Egypt's Defense Minister, Field
Marshal Abdel Abu Ghazala, flew to
Washington in June to warn Secre-
tary of State George Shultz and De-
fense Secretary Caspar Weinberger
of the gravity of the situation in
Egypt and the need for aid. He was

to be followed by Kamal Ganzouri,
Egypt's planning minister, to discuss
possible measures the United States
could take to ease the domestic pres-

Southfield-based institute which

In May, the Detroit Free Press

of the institute, headed by Rev.
James R. Lyons and based in the
North Congregational Church. Since
then, friends of the institute have
banded together to create a plan
which will keep the four-year-old
agency alive.

The agency sponsors a speakers
bureau, offers forums for youth,
adult study groups and for dialogue
between men's and women's groups
and clergy; houses a research library
for persons interested in studying
Christian-Jewish relations and ulti-
mately aims at combatting theologi-
cal and social anti-Semitism.
