PRIs I.:

he long-awaited Con-
gressional report on
the Iran-contra affair
has concluded that Israel
originally came up with the
idea of exchanging arms to
Iran for American hostages in
Lebanon. Israel has main-
tained that it became in-
volved in the arrangement
only at the request of the
United States.
However, the report ac-
cepted Israel's contention
that ousted National Securi-
ty Council staffer Oliver
North — and not Israel — in-
itiated the idea of actually
diverting profits from the
Iranian arms sales to the con-
tra rebels in Nicaragua.
North has maintained that
Israel came up with that
proposal.
The 431-page majority
report was relatively mild in
its criticism of Israel's in-
volvement in the affair. It
charged that "the ultimate
responsibility" must rest
with President Ronald
Reagan.
The separate 259-page
Republican minority report
was considerably less critical
of the President's role. At the
same time it was harsher in
challenging Israel's version.
It basically accepted North's
sworn testimony that
Amiram Nir, counterter-
rorism advisor to Prime
Minister Shimon Peres, had
concocted the scheme.
Both reports relied heavily
on an official Israeli historical
chronology which had been
submitted to the joint House-
Senate panels. But in the pro-
cess of submitting that
material, Israel effectively
undermined its own repeated
contentions over the past year
that it was totally unaware
that profits from the Iranian
sales were going to the con-
tras. Indeed, the Israeli
chronology said that North
raised the issue with Israeli
officials in New York on
December 6, 1985.
According to the Israeli
chronology "North remarked
to Israeli Ministry of Defense
officials that he needed
money and that he intended
to divert profits from future
Iranian transactions to
Nicaragua."
North, in his own sworn
testimony before the commit-
tees last July, said that Nir
had proposed in early
January 1986 that profits

from the weapons trans-
actions be used to help the
contras as well as other joint
U.S.-Israeli covert operations.

The report said that Nir,
starting in January 1986,
also proposed to North a
whole series of other covert
operations which could be
financed by the Iranian arms
profits.
The Congressional report
was scathing in its criticism
of the operation. It was
marked by "confusion and
disarray at the highest
levels" of the U.S. govern-
ment, the report said. It was
also characterized by "per-
vasive dishonesty and inor-
dinate secrecy"
The final majority report
noted that while the National
Security Council in the White
House was "already engaged
in covert operations" in the

summer of 1985, "the Govern-
ment of Israel proposed that
missiles be sold to Iran in
return for the release of seven
American hostages held in
Lebanon and the prospect of
improved relations with
Iran."
"The Israelis strongly ad-
vocated the initiative, view-
ing it as a joint U.S.- Israel
operation, and were willing to
give the United States deni-
ability — so long as it did not
subject them to criticism by
Congress and the Secretary of
State was fully informed!"
But the report went on to
point out that Reagan "was
under no illusion that the in-
terests of the United States
and Israel were synonymous.
As early as June 1985,
Secretary of State George
Shultz had pointed out to
then-National Security ad-
visor Robert McFarlane that
Israel had little to lose by pro-
moting the initiative: it had
no policy against arms sales
to Iran, and, given the hostili-
ty of most of its neighbors,
Israel was more willing to
gamble on the prospect of
changes in the Iranian
Government!'
But in the end, the report
concluded, the U.S. must ac-
cept full responsibility for the
affair.
"No foreign stste can dic-
tate the conduct of U.S.
foreign policy," it said.
"Superpowers make their
own decisions. And the
United States did so in this
instance. Nevertheless,
Israel's endorsement of the
Iran iniiative cannot be ig-
nored as a factor in its origin
and its continuation!" El

IN BRIEF I

Shamir Feels Confident
Over Summit Outcome

Washington JTA) — Israeli
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir expressed confidence
last week that the United
States will strive to "make a
giant step" to solve the issue
of Soviet Jewry during the
summit meeting here be-
tween President Reagan and
Soviet leader Mikhail
Gorbachev.
After meeting with Reagan
at the White House for about
15 minutes and then spen-
ding about two hours at the
State Department with
Secretary of State George
Shultz and his senior aides,

Shamir he was "really en-
couraged" about the "more
than sympathetic attitude"
about the problem shown by
Reagan and Shultz.
"We hope that Secretary
Gorbachev will come away
(from the summit) with the
understanding and conviction
that Soviet Jews must be
given their rights," Shamir
told a gathering sponsored by
the Washington Institute for
Near East Policy at which he
described his talks with the
Reagan administration.
He outlined these rights as
allowing "those Jews who
