T

he State Department's
ranking military af-
fairs expert says the
United States again will
raise with the Israeli
government reports that
South Africa was receiving
Israeli assistance in the de-
velopment of a new medium-
range missile capable of car-
rying nuclear warheads.
Assistant Secretary for
Politico-Military Affairs
Richard Clarke told
reporters following a con-
gressional hearing Monday
that a new round of
U.S.-Israel talks on the sen-
sitive subject would take
place soon.
Henry Sokolski, deputy
secretary of defense for non-
proliferation policy, told a
House Foreign Affairs Sub-
committee earlier in the day
that the issue already has
been raised at the highest
levels of the Pentagon and
the Israel Defense Ministry
— an apparent reference to
Defense Secretary Richard
Cheney and Defense Min-
ister Yitzhak Rabin.
Sokolski said that reports
of Israeli-South African
military cooperation "have
been and continue to be a
matter of serious concern at
the highest levels of DOD
[Department of Defense]."
He added that "such col-
laboration is in no one's
security. interest."
Clarke warned that a pro-
posed bill by Rep. Howard
Berman, D-Calif., man-
dating U.S. sanctions
against countries transferr-
i ng ballistic missile
technology to Third World
nations, could force the
United States to curtail
several aid programs with
Israel if the legislation
became law.
"In the case of Israel and
South Africa," Clarke said,
"if there is a corporate rela-
tionship, a government rela-
tionship, then this legisla-
tion or other versions of it
might mandate that we ter-
minate a variety of pro-
grams with Israel."
Clarke, who did not detail
what programs might be af-
fected, also stopped short of
confirming the news reports
that Israel had helped South
Africa launch a 900-mile-
range missile on July 5 in
exchange for South African
supplies of enriched ura-
nium.
Berman and other pro-

Israeli lawmakers, in
originally pushing for such
legislation, had been con-
cerned primarily about West
European, Soviet, South
American and North Korean
missile technology being ex-
ported to Arab countries, in-
cluding Syria, Saudi Arabia,
Libya and Iraq.
Israeli officials and other
pro-Israeli activists in
Washington agreed that the

Rep. Berman: Bill could backfire.

Berman legislation could
backfire against Israel if the
reports of Israeli-South
African missile cooperation
are verified.
Sen. John Glenn, D-Ohio,
meanwhile, has publicly
urged the Bush administra-
tion to reject pending re-
quests by Israel, Brazil and
India to purchase the latest
U.S.-made supercomputers.
Glenn, chairman of the
Governmental Affairs
Committee and author of the
Nuclear Non-Proliferation
Act, said in a statement on
the Senate floor Monday
that the United States
should not sell supercom-
puters to nations "building
nuclear weapons or long-
range missiles."
Glenn said that selling
these computers to the three
countries could lead to the
further spread of nuclear
weapons and ballistic mis-
siles.
, Glenn's statement repre-
sented another blow to
Israel's hopes to purchase
two supercomputers from
the United States — one for
the Technion in Haifa and a
second for Israel Military
Industries.

publicized news reports of an
alleged Israeli-South
