Gorbachev: USSR
Not Hostile To Israel

TOM TUGEND

Special to The Jewish News

L

os Angeles — The Sovi-
et Union bears no hos-
tility toward Israel or
its Jewish citizens, Mikhail S.
Gorbachev claims in his book

Perestroika: Our Hopes for
Our Country.

The English-language ver-
sion of the book has been ob-
tained prior to publication by
the Los Angeles Times, which
has published a lengthy
analysis under a Moscow
dateline from its reporter,
Robert Scheer.
The main theme of Peres-
troika,
which means
"Restructuring," emphasizes
that the Soviet Union is now
in the grip of a new realism
about its domestic crisis and
world priorities. It is this
theme that Gorbachev will
convey to President Reagan
at their upcoming summit
meeting, Scheer writes.
One Gorbachev claim is
that "it is a tradition of our
party to combat any manifes-
tation of nationalist narrow-
mindedness and chauvinism,
parochialism, Zionism and
anti-Semitism, in whatever
form they may be expressed."
Scheer comments that, on
the contrary, "anti-Semitism,
sometimes in the guise of
anti-Zionism, has been a con-
sistent feature of life in
Mother Russia from the time
of the czars to the pres-
ent . . ?'

Later on, Gorbachev seems
to endorse Zionism in a way,
writing that "nonexistent
anti-Israel prejudices are
ascribed to the Soviet Union,

Gorbachev: Realist

although our country was
among the first to promote
the formation of the State of
Israel."
After reiterating the Soviet
plan for a Mideast peace con-
ference involving the Soviet
Union as a pre-condition for
restoration of full diplomatic
ties, Gorbachev adds: "I want
to stress in this connection
that we do not bear any hos-
tility toward Israel in princi-
ple . . . We have no complexes
here. As for the contacts
already in existence between
our countries, we will not
abandon them?'
Scheer comments that ac-
cording to his interviews with
high Soviet foreign ministry
officials, "those contacts are
substantial, though general-
ly with the Labor Party wing
of the Israeli government.
The sticking point now is the
matter of the emigration of
Soviet Jews desiring to leave,
and this topic is simply avoid-
ed in the book."

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Two Israel
Defense Force officers were
arrested in Jordan early this
month and are under inter-
rogation for espionage, ac-
cording to an Abu Dhabi
newspaper quoted last Sun-
day by Maariv.
The IDF has disclaimed any
knowledge of such incident.
The report said the officers,
when captured, said they
were on their way to explore
the ruins of the ancient Naba-
tean city of Petra in Jordan.
They admitted they were in
the country illegally, but in-
sisted their purpose was
innocent.

The timing of their trip, two
days before the Arab summit
conference opened in Am-
man, Jordan, has convinced
the Jordanian counter-
intelligence agencies that the
Israelis were on their way to
plant intelligence-gathering
devices, Al-ltihad reported.
Petra was built some 2,000
years ago, carved from the red
rock walls of the eastern side
of the Jordan rift, between
the Dead Sea and the Gulf of
Eilat. It has long been an at-
traction for Israeli hikers and
archaeologists, a number of
whom have been killed in at-
tempts to visit the ruins.
