sus on that question here
than there is in Jerusalem.
Another Capitol Hill staffer
involved with the issue
believes that Congressional
support for the project has
never been seriously in doubt.
"It's more of a problem over
at the Pentagon, where they
are very concerned about the
economic bottom line. There's
also the suspicion that the
Israelis will build the plane,
then turn around and com-
pete with us in the arms
market."
This source agrees that the
project represents a heavy
drain on Israel's economy and
on American aid. "The Is-
raelis like to compare it to our
moon project. But the moon
project never took up 5 per-
cent of G.N.P. In reality, the
Lavi is like the moon project
multiplied a few times over."

Currently, the Lavi project
is budgeted for more than
$500 million a year; to date,
the U.S. has contributed
almost $1.5 billion to the
plane's development. Accor-
ding to some estimates, the
final cost may go as high as
$35 million per plane.
Meanwhile, there are also
suggestions that Rabin's visit
had more to do with Israeli

internal politics than with
"fact finding," the label that
was officially attached to the
trip. According to several
sources on the Hill, Rabin,
who is opposed to continuing
the Lavi project, was seeking
ammunition to use in the
ongoing cabinet debate in
Jerusalem.
One weapon in this debate
is apparently American re-
assurance that if the Lavi is
scrapped, Israel will acquire
100 American F-16s as an
alternative, which military
analysts claim is a better deal
for both countries. There are
also indications that Sec-
retary of Defense Caspar
Weinberger is prepared to of-
fer "sweeteners" if the Lavi
is scrapped, including conces-
sions that would increase
Israeli production of other
weapons systems.
Defense analysts here see
the Lavi question as multi-
layered. Issues include the
need for defense-industry jobs
in Israel and that nation's
hopes for expanding its role
as a major arms supplier on
the world market, as well as
the military value of the
planes and the electronic
technologies that will come
out of the development
process.

Debating Israeli Policy

Washington_(JTA) — A sym-
posium on Israel-Diaspora
relations at the B'nai B'rith
International headquarters
quickly turned into a debate
over whether American Jews
should participate in Israel's
political controversies.
Rabbi Arthur Hertzberg,
vice president of the World
Jewish Congress, declared
that it must "cease being
heretical within the Diaspora
for all the various opinions in
Israel to be supported and be
supported publicly."
He said that up to now it
has been acceptable within
the Jewish community to be
to the right of Israeli policy or
more hawkish than Israel,
but not more dovish. He said
the American Jewish com-
munity is liberal and must
not allow the perception to
continue that it is part of the
right, in Israel or the U.S.

University political science
professor, said that American
