North Testifies On U.S.,
Israeli Objectives

Washington (JTA) — Lt.
Col. Oliver North said last
week that while Israel and
the United States may have
had some different objectives
in the Iranian initiative,
there was a "basic fundamen-
tal agreement" on the need to
open contacts with the more
moderate elements in Iran.
"I believe that there was
sufficient congruence be-
tween Israeli objectives and
American objectives that
made this project worth-
while," North said during his
testimony before the Senate-
House special committee in-
vestigating the Iran-Contra
affair.
He said both countries "saw
the need to get to some fac-
tion within the Iranian
government that would lead
to a more moderate, more pro-
Western government in Iran,
if not immediately, then over
time."
The former National Secur-
ity Council aide explained
that both countries feared
that with no relationship
with Iranian moderates, the
"chaos" might result when
the Ayatollah Ruhollah Kho-
meini dies would allow the
Soviet Union to move into
Iran.
In addition, North said
there is need to control the
threat from "Iranian-
sponsored fundamentalist
Shiite terrorism" which, he
stressed, exists not only in the
Middle East, but also in the
Philippines, Indonesia and
elsewhere in the Far East.
Explaining the different ob-
jectives of Israel and the U.S.,
North said that the U.S.
wanted an end to the Iran-
Iraq war, while some in the
U.S. believe "Israel may like
to see the war go on."
During his testimony,
North strongly defended
Amiram Nir, who according
to a report in the Washington
Post was removed as terror-
ism advisor to Israeli Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir
because of North's testimony.
Shamir's office denied that
report, and Nir was unavail-
able for comment.
In that testimony, North
said that during a meeting
with Nir and Iranian arms
dealer Manucher Ghor-
banifar in Europe last
January, Ghorbanifar propos-
ed to North that profits from
the sale of U.S. arms to Iran
be used to finance the Contra
rebels in their efforts against
the Sandinista regime in
Nicaragua.
North said he was told by

the late William Casey, then
director of the Central In-
telligence Agency, that Ghor--
banifar was believed to be an
Israeli agent, and North said
he believed Ghorbanifar
made the proposal "with the
full knowledge and ac-
quiesence of the Israeli in-
telligence services, if not the
Israeli government." The
Israeli government has relied
on Nir for the its denial that
Israel knew about the diver-
sion of the arms sale proceeds
to the Contras.

Jewish Leader
Briefs Shultz
On 'Glasnost'

Washington
(JTA) —
Secretary of State George
Shultz was urged by Jewish
leaders last week to tell his
Soviet counterpart that
Soviet leader Mikhail Gor-
bachev's policy of "glasnost"
or openness is not being ap-
plied to the Jews of the USSR.
"Glasnost as far as the
Jewish population is con-
cerned doesn't exist at the
best and is a fraud at the
worst," Morris Abram, chair-
man of the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry
(NCSJ), told reporters after
the meeting at the State
Department. He said the sit-
uation for Jews under Gor-
bachev is more "oppressive"
than under previous regimes.

U.S. Opposes
Water Plan

Washington (JTA) — The
State Department said last
week that it is opposing plans
by the Israeli Water Commis-
sion to drill water in West
Bank for use in Jerusalem
and Jewish settlements.
The State Department
statement said "natural
resources of the occupied ter-
ritories should be used for the
benefit of the Palestinian in-
habitants of those territories
and should not be removed
from those territories."
Arab residents of the West
Bank are strongly opposed to
the water-drilling because
they believe it will sharply
reduce the water used in Arab
villages. The water-drilling
plan, which would result in
18 million cubic meters being
pumped outside of the West
Bank, would be located near
Bethlehem. The plan must
still be approved by the Israeli
Defence Ministry.
