Bush Trip To Israel
Considered A Success

Jerusalem (JTA) — Israel as a
whole has a markedly more
secure and confident feeling
after Vice President George
Bush's visit here last week.
The man who may well be the
next U.S. President and leader of
the free world had been regard-
ed here with a certain sense of
distance, even trepidation.
Some of the media, and some
pundits, had written that Bush,
while not unfriendly, was less
friendly than other American
leaders — and other Presidential
hopefuls — towards the Jewish
State. At best, they said, he was
uncaring, indifferent to the uni-
que features of the Jewish
historical experience.
Now, after stripping away all
the pap and pizzaz inevitably
present in a Vice Presidential
visit, and in Vice Presidential
rhetoric, most Israelis are left
with a comfortable feeling that
Bush follows what is by now a
mainstream tradition in Ameri-
can government of regarding
Israel as both a strategic ally
and a moral mainstay for the
United States.
His declaration that the two
countries were "allies in every
sense of the word" and his state
ment that "many intangible, and
in a sense spiritual, ties" have
developed "a multitude of word-
ly bonds" between the U.S. and
Israel, .seemed to leave a glow
here. And Israeli leaders, par-
ticularly Deputy Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir, had made a
point of emphasizing Bush's per-
sonal involvement in the rescue
of Ethiopian Jewry and his long
time interest in the cause of .
Soviet Jewry.
Bush for his part visited a
Russian immigrant family and
an Ethiopian absorption center
in his packed, much photograph-
ed and filmed four-day itinerary
here — thereby stressing those
same points.
In terms of substantive poli-
cies, the Vice President had no
major pronouncement to make
here. But he pleased his hosts by
indicating that Washington is
weighing a new, more preferred,
status for Israel in the field of
military supplies and support.
He said at his press conference
in Jerusalem that Israel might
in the future benefit from the
same preferential trade benefits
as Australia and New Zealand
enjoy.
He was also at pains to ease
recent tensions surrounding the
Pollard spy affair and subse-
quent allegations of Israeli
technology-smuggling, which
have sullied relations between
the U.S. and Israel.
He hoped, he said, that his
visit had the effect of dispelling
misplaced suspicions here that
some American officials were
conducting a vendetta against
Israel.
On the Palestinian issue,
moveover, the Bush was careful
not to step out beyond the
Reagan plan — this despite
pressured on him by hardline

Palestinian circles in the West
Bank and Gaza.
And he was generous in his
praise of Prime Minister Shimon
Peres's visit to King Hassan of
Morocco.
On the debit side in summing
up this visit, there were the fail-
ed hopes that somehow Bush's
presence in the area could be us-
ed as a pivot around which to
construct the long-awaited sum-
mit between Peres and Egyptian
President Hosni Mubarak. Some
Israeli officials believed the sum-
mit could become a threesome,
with Bush participating.
But this is apparently not to
be, as Israeli and Egyptian
negotiators still continued in
Eilat to haggle over the fin-
ishing touches to the Taba ar-
bitration document.
On the credit side, however,
the visit did catalyze the initiall-
ing of an accord on the building
of huge Voice of America trans-
mitters in the Negev — with
Washington pledging that some
50 percent of_ all the contracts
linked to this $250 million pro-
ject will go to Israeli companies.

WHAT IS
CONGENITAL
HEART DISEASE?

Congenital heart disease is the ab-
normal development of the heart be-
fore a child is born. A congenital
heart defect may be diagnosed at
birth or it may be discovered at some
time during childhood in a routine
physical examination. Some defects
may be caused by'cirugs taken
during pregnancy or exposure to
German measles (rubella) during
pregnancy. They may be inherited,
or the cause may be unknown. Con-
genital heart defects may require
only minimal medical supervision or
they may require corrective surgery
to avoid complications later in life.
Some congenital heart defects can
be prevented by vaccination of the
mother against rubella prior to preg-
nancy and by following a doctor's ad-
vice while taking medications during
pregnancy. Contact your local - Ameri-
can Heart Association for more
information.
