PROVIDING A FOUNDATIONON WHICH ISRAEL BUILDS

AMPAL

The Lavi

Continued from Preceeding Page

Labor Party leader Shimon
Peres is hoist on a different
petard. Voting against the
Lavi—a decision that could
put thousands of workers out
of jobs—would place him on a
collision course with the
Histadrut labor federation,
his natural (and powerful)
political ally.
It would also hand a neat
victory to the Likud leader,
his coalition partner—and
political rival.
Ultimately, however, when
the cabinet debates the issue

again—this Sunday or the
next—it is difficult to imagine
that Israeli policy-makers
will vote to go ahead with the
Lavi in the face of such deter-
mined opposition from their
own economic and defense
experts—and from
Washington, which is, after
all, footing the bill.

Said Immigration and Ab-
sorption Minister Ya'acov
Tsur: "We cannot just tell the
Americans to go jump in the
lake."

Israel's Wish List

Israeli military planners
have a long list of weapons
which, they believe, would
give Israel a decisive advan-
tage on any future bat-
tlefield. But these weapons
cannot be acquired simply
because the armed forces
simply cannot afford them.
There is a strong—and
growing—lobby, both in the
Defense Ministry and in the
Defense Forces, which ad-
vocates scrapping the Lavi
in order to release $300
million a year which, the
planners contend, could be
better spent elsewhere.
One of the first items on
the military "wish list" is a
missile developed, ironically,
by Israel Aircraft Industries
(which is also building the
Lavi).
The Air Force needs 1,000
of these missiles which, ac-
cording to a military source,
could "change the bat-
tlefield." At present,
however, the Air Force has
funds to buy only 200 to 300
over the next few years.
Two other missiles—one
developed by Israel Aircraft
Industries; the other by

Rafael (the armaments
development authority) are
also high-priority items in
the Defense Forces.
A special plant has been
constructed to produce the
Rafael missile but, becau -se
of severe budget cuts, the
plant is working at just 40
percent capacity.
The navy also has a $1.1
billion development pro-
gram that is starved of
funds. The navy urgently
needs new attack craft, sub-
marines and missile boats.

There is p.o formal linkage
between the Lavi and
United States willingness to
produce the $200 million it
has promised to enable
Israel to develop the Arrow
ATB anti-tactical ballistic
missile, which has been
designed specifically to meet
the growing missile threat
on the Syrian front. But the
funds have not been for-
thcoming and the Arrow
project is at a standstill=
and will probably remain so
until the Lavi crisis has
been resolved.

Sharon Breaks Silence
On Lebanese War

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The
Lebanon war was a "great
success . . . a war of salva-
tion . . . the most carefully pre-
planned and implemented
war in Israel's history."
Moreover, it was directed on a
daily basis by the Cabinet,
which was fully privy to every
move made, Ariel Sharon de-
clared in a prepared four-hour
address to a VIP audience at
rIbl Aviv University last week.
Sharon's speech, in which
he quoted extensively from
the minutes of Cabinet and
military staff meetings and
briefings of senior army offic-
ers, was intended to "tell the

truth and clear my name."
But it has been followed by
the reopening of the Lebanon
war- debate, with renewed
sharp attacks on Sharon and
his veracity.
Introducing Sharon to the
packed audience of senior
government officials, senior
army officers and academics,
Maj. (Res.) Gen. Aharon Yariv
head of Tel Aviv University's
Jaffee Center for Strategic
Studies (JCSS), which spon-
sored the meeting, said that
Sharon had come under fierce
attack during a JCSS sym-
posium on the Lebanon war
two months ago "and we
