srael's security is in great
danger," New York Mayor
EdWard Koch told a
gathering Sunday night at
the Westin Hotel. "The PLO
is getting more crafty, wily
and duplicitous. The PLO is a
terrorist organization. It
destroyed Lebanon; it would,
if it could, destroy Jordan and
someday it would destroy
Israel if it could get its first
toehold!'
Speaking at the 74th an-
nual dinner on behalf of the
Beth Yehudah Schools —
Yeshivath Beth Yehudah and
the Sally Allan Alexander
Beth Jacob School for Girls —
Mayor Koch said the PLO is
pulling a "con job" on the U.S.
just so it can be a partner in
peace negotiations with
Israel.
"The PLO is beclouding the
issue by saying they accept
UN resolutions 242 and 338.
What an outrage!" Koch ex-
claimed. He was grateful to
President Reagan and
President-elect George Bush
for rejecting the PLO's desire
to be a negotiating partner
because its mandate doesn't
"meet the conditions" for
joining the peace discussions.
He paid tribute to President
Reagan for his Israel policy,
calling him "Israel's best
friend!'
Koch also expressed the
wish that President-elect
Bush be "as strong on Israel
as he was speaking to Jewish
groups before the election. I
believe he will be. I want to
help him become a good presi-
dent!'
Koch told the 1,980 guests
at the dinner that Egypt and
Jordan are "scared to death of
the PLO!' He reminded his

audience that Egyptian Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat was
assassinated because he
wanted to make peace with
Israel. "I admired him," Koch
said. "He was an enormous
presence in the Mideast." He
explained that Jordan's King
Hussein fears the PLO
because his grandfather was
killed since he, too, wanted
peace with his Israeli
neighbor.
"Israel can never be afraid,"
Koch warned. "Israel can
never lose its first war
because then it's over!' The
mayor told his audience that
the U.S. must not "threaten
Israel. We are allies and we
have to keep them (Israel) as
allies!'
Mayor Koch blasted the in-
crease of drug abuse in the
U.S. calling it the "scourge of
America!' "I have no compas-
sion for drug pushers and
users, none. They're making
our streets unsafe. How long
before we wake up and take
the consitutional action that's
required? Whatever it takes
to make America safe within
constitutional protections,
let's do it!' As a solution to
dealing with drug pushers,
Koch suggested prison camps
for drug pushers in the
deserts. He estimated there
are 200,000 heroin users in
New York, 500,000 across the
U.S. and nearly six million co-
caine users throughout the
country.
Calling himself a proud
Jew, Koch said Jews have sur-
vived oppression through
history. "There must be some
special tie with God that we
have to come through the op-
pression," Koch mmused. "We
never shun or run from the
word `Jew! You see before you
a proud Jew!'
The dinner paid tribute to
Mrs. Hannah Karbal, a long-
