has redrawn posters • last
spring's posters and has plans
to place them on every other
Metro subway car for a
month. The posters were
withdrawn after long negotia-
tions with Metro board
officials.
One of the original posters
showed Israeli soldiers
beating an Arab civilian. The
caption read: "Soviet Union,

South Africa, Israel: One

Another, with the same photo
read: "Your tax dollars at

Despite protests from
groups like CAMERA, it is
expected that the latest batch
of posters will be approved by
the Metro board. _

Bush Pledges Arms
Stockpile In Israel

WOLF BLITZER

Special to The Jewish News

W

ashington — Going
beyond existing U.S.
policy, Vice Presi-
dent George Bush has
pledged to stockpile "dual-
purpose" U.S. military equip-
ment in Israel if elected presi-
dent in November.

Bush: Challenging Democrats.

His nine-page "Middle East
Position Paper" released by
his campaign represents a
dramatic challenge to Demo-
cratic presidential candidate
Michael Dukakis for support
in the pro-Israeli community,
including American Jews.
Bush's very pro-Israeli
paper outlines in considerable
detail what his position will
be if elected president. Much
of the document focuses at-
tention on the U.S.-Israeli
strategic relationship, en-
hanced during the Reagan
years in office.
Israeli officials and other
pro-Israeli political activists
were especially pleased that
Bush had pledged to preposi-
tion heavy combat equipment
in Israel. Israeli defense of-
ficials have long sought such
a commitment from Washing-
ton in order to avoid the
necessity of appealing for
another U.S. emergency
resupply airlift to Israel in
the event of another war.
U.S. strategic planners are
also interested in pursuing

this area of strategic coopera-
tion since the U.S., too, could
find itself in need of heavy
military equipment in that
part of the world. By having
it in Israel, the U.S. also
would avoid a costly and
militarily and politically
risky airlift from Western
Europe or the United States.
Bush has now pledged to
move forward on this issue.
By establishing appropriate
policies and institutions," the
paper says, "the goal of
strategic cooperation with
Israel has been achieved. It
will be sustained through
continued security and
economic assistance to Israel,
and expansion of existing
elements of strategic coopera-
tion including joint exercises,
pre-positioning of dual-use
stockpiles (including combat
equipment, spare parts, and
ammunition), intelligence
sharing and contingency
planning."

Regarding the Arab-Israeli
peace process, the paper
states: "We oppose the crea-
tion of an independent
Palestinian state; its
establishment is inimical to
the security interests of
Israel, Jordan and the U.S.
We will not support the crea-
tion of any Palestinian entity
tht could place Israel's securi-
ty in jeopardy."
Bush, after endorsing the
Camp David peace process,
says that "ultimately, direct
negotiations are the only
viable means of securing
peace between Israel and its
neighbors. The U.S. cannot
and will not impose a settle-
ment, nor will we be party to
any effort to do so through a
multilateral entity."
In connection with a PLO
role in the peace process, the
paper says the Bush ad-
ministration will not support
any PLO involvement "unless
it recognizes Israel's right to
exist, accepts UN Resolutions
242 and 338, renounces ter-
rorism and removes language
from its charter demanding
Israel's destruction!'
