Soviets Are Blocking
Direct Israeli Flights

Washington, D.C. (JTA) —
The Soviet Union is refusing
to institute direct flights
between Moscow and Israel,
at least for the immediate
future, Bush administration
officials and Jewish leaders
have confirmed.
But they said the United
States is still hoping to per-
suade Moscow to implement
an agreement on direct
flights signed last fall by El
Al Israel Airlines and its
Soviet counterpart, Aeroflot.
Secretary of State James
Baker raised the issue with
Soviet officials during his
recent visit to Moscow, but
the "Soviet response to Sec-
retary Baker was not en-
couraging," State Depart-
ment spokeswoman
Margaret Tutwiler said
Tuesday.
She would not reveal what
the Soviets actually said.
At the White House,
spokesman Marlin Fitz-
water said Tuesday that the
United States is
"disappointed" that they
have not approved direct
flights, "but we are hopeful
that they may still have
them."
He said direct flights
"would be helpful in increas-
ing the number of Soviet
emigrants to Israel."
The Soviet unwillingness
to institute the El Al-
Aeroflot agreement is
believed to be in part the
result of pressure from Arab
nations. The Arabs have
been lobbying the Soviets to
curtail Jewish immigration,
because they fear Israel will
settle the new immigrants in
the West Bank and Gaza
Strip, thereby forcing out
the Palestinians.
Jewish leaders who met
with President Bush and
with Deputy Secretary of
State Lawrence Eagleburger
just prior to the Baker trip
pointed out that regular
flights to Israel through
Budapest were booked up
through January 1991. They
also expressed the urgency
of increasing the number of
Jews actually leaving the
Soviet Union, because of
growing concern about anti-
Semitism there.
Martin Wenick, executive
director of the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry, who
just returned from the Soviet
Union, was told by Soviet
Foreign Ministry officials
that the prospects for direct
flights are not encouraging.
A similar statement was
made by Michah Naftalin,

national director of the
Union of Councils for Soviet
Jews.
Fitzwater said Tuesday
that President Bush "is con-
cerned about reports of
growing anti-Semitism" in
the Soviet Union.
Tutwiler said Baker pre-
sented the Soviets with ac-
tual anti-Semitic leaflets be-
ing distributed in the Soviet
Union. Baker received the
material from Bush, who
was given them by Seymour
Reich, chairman of the Con-
ference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations.
The Bush administration
appears to have given the
issue of direct flights a high
profile. In a Feb. 6 speech in
San Francisco, Bush himself
publicly urged the Soviets to
institute direct flights as a
sign that they are ready to
play a responsible role in the
Middle East.
Fitzwater said Tuesday
that it is "unfortunate" that
Soviet Jews are settling in
the West Bank. Bush "has
made his views directly
known" to Israeli Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir, he
added.

ADL: U.S.
Too Dependent
On Arab Oil

Palm Beach (JTA) —
America's growing
dependence on imported
Arab oil could erode U.S.
support for Israel in the
1990s, the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith has
warned in a report.
The report, titled
"America's Oil Situation:
Still Getting Worse," was
released by Burton Levin-
son, ADL's national chair-
man, on the final day of the
organization's National Ex-
ecutive Committee meeting.
It points out that U.S. oil
production hit a 25-year low
last year, while U.S.
dependence on imported oil
increased almost 9 percent.
But U.S. dependence on oil
from members of OPEC, the
Organization of Petroleum
Exporting Countries, went
up 18 percent, and
dependence on oil from the
dominant Arab members of
OPEC increased 20 percent,
ADL reported.
The report recalled that in
the late 1970s, Washington
was the target of blackmail
by the Arab members of
OPEC.
