WITH DR. STANLEY LEVINE, D.C.

Israeli Official Wary
Of Bush Administration

WOLF BLITZER

Special to The Jewish News

ashington — A sen-
ior Israeli official in
Washington has ex-
pressed concern that a Bush
administration, facing very
serious budgetary problems
resulting from the massive
federal deficit, might be
prepared to reduce U.S.
foreign aid to Israel and other
countries.
Meeting with reporters, the
official, who asked not to be
identified, also expressed
alarm over indications that
the new administration will
try to push through fresh U.S.
arms sales to Saudi Arabia
and other Arab states. Such
sales, the official said, would
help the U.S. balance of trade.
The Israeli official, while
welcoming the very pro-
Israeli statements made by
President-elect George Bush
during the campaign, said he
is concerned about future U.S.
economic and military
assistance to Israel.
In recent years, Israel has
been receiving $3 billion a
year in all-grant aid from the
United States — $1.8 billion
in the military area; the re-
maining $1.2 billion in the
economic area.
The official said that the
United States has not dis-
cussed with Israel a possible
cut in assistance, but he noted
that mounting budgetary
problems in Washington
could force the administra-
tion and Congress to support
"across-the-board" cuts in the
budget, including cuts in
foreign aid.
During the campaign, the
Israeli official recalled, Bush
came out sharply against the
creation of an • independent
Palestinian state. The Bush
administration; he continued,
would maintain support for
enhanced strategic coopera-
tion with Israel. "They see
Israel as a strategic asset," he
said.
"Continuity is the key
word," the Israeli official said,
referring to U.S. policy under
Bush.
But he noted that "changes
on the ground" in the Middle
East could affect U.S. policy.
Thus, an aggressive Israeli
settlement policy on the West
Bank or moves to expel larger
number of Palestinians could
quickly strain U.S.-Israeli
relations.

Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, assuming he remains
in office, is expected to come

to the United States in March
to meet with Bush and Baker,
other U.S. and Israeli sources
said.
Bush, who will be sworn in
as president on Jan. 20, also
is expected to receive several
moderate Arab leaders short-
ly after he takes office.
Sources close to Bush
agreed that the new president
and secretary of state can be
expected to continue the
general thrust of the Reagan
Administration's policies
toward the Middle East.
"There will be
no major departures," one
informed source suggested.

Regarding Baker's appoint-
ment to succeed George
Shultz as secretary of state,
American Jewish leaders said
that long-time Republican
Jewish activist Max Fisher of
Detroit has had a close rela-
tionship with Baker for many
years. They predicted that
Fisher will continue to serve
as an important "back chan-
nel" to the White House and
the State Department in the
next administra-
tion.
Morris B. Abram, Chair-
man of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, mean-
while, has issued a statement
welcoming Bush's election.

"Over the past eight years
the Reagan-Bush administra-
tion cemented the friendship
and formalized the strategic
alliance between the United
States and Israel in the secur-
ity interests of each country,"
Abram said. "As vice presi-
dent, George Bush played a
major role in this
development.
"George Bush has a vision
of American foreign policy
that involves a key role for
Israel. Therefore I look for-
ward to the Bush administra-
tion continuing the strong
alliance and friendship bet-
ween Washington and
Jerusalem."
Abram also recalled the
very pro-Israeli Republican
Party platform, which he
described as "explicit in its
commitments to the State of
Israel and to the continuing
close U.S.-Israel relationship.
I have great personal con-
fidence in the integrity, the
experience and the judgment
of the President-elect, George
Bush!'
Bush sources have confirm-
ed that former Texas Sen.
John Tower was well-
positioned to become
secretary of defense.

JUST WAIT. YOUR BACKACKE WILL
PROBABLY GO AWAY?

And tomorrow or the next day it will probably return. Backaches often
start as a small pain that promises to go away. But, left untreated, backaches
usually return. Sometimes, what causes your backache may also cause other
problems such as headaches, constipation and even stiffness or fatigue.

The spine is a complex system of nerves, muscles, bones, ligaments and
cartilage, that are interconnected to control all of the areas of your body.
When the bones or VERTEBRAE are misaligned, they pinch surrounding
nerves and interfere with the signals to the rest of your body. This is when
you may notice back pain, constipation, headaches, stiffness and fatigue.

There's no color TV in the room. And there's
no swimming pool out back. Dinner's served once
a day. And the menu rarely changes. But the 551 rooms
at the Michigan Humane Society (MHS) are nearly
always full.
Because the MHS is the last refuge for thousands of
homeless and unwanted animals. We treat every one with
love and affection. But despite our best efforts. there are
always more pets waiting to be helped and adopted than
there are people waiting to help and adopt them. And that's
where the real heartbreak comes in.
If you could see the looks on these animals' faces. or
