Thatcher Says
Not To Disarm

Rehovot, Israel (JTA) —
Former British Prime Min-
ister Margaret Thatcher,
addressing an audience at
the Weizmann Institute of
Science here, called on
Western leaders this week
not to disarm too rapidly in
the wake of the fall of com-
munism.
"We live still in a world
full of uncertainty," she
said. "As I look around me
now, I have one fear: It is
that people will be taking
down our defenses too quick-
ly."
Mrs. Thatcher and her
husband, Sir Denis, were
due to leave Wednesday at
the end of a three-day pri-
vate visit as guests of the
Weizmann Institute. The
former prime minister of
Britain was one of six
honorees awarded doctorates
at a special session of the in-
stitute's board of governors.
Another honoree was a
longtime friend of Israel's,
U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-
Hawaii, who was cited for
"unflinching personal
courage in the pursuit of
dignity, justice and freedom,
both at home and abroad."
Mrs. Thatcher was recog-
nized for her "defense of
freedom around the world,
her valiant championing of
human rights" and "her de-
termined and enduring sup-
port for Israel and the Jew-
ish people."
In her address at the
ceremony, Mrs. Thatcher did
not refer to U.S. President-
elect Bill Clinton by name.
But she pointedly noted
that when Ronald Reagan,
George Bush and she were in
government in their respec-
tive countries, and had "to
take the awful decision to
send men into battle, we
never had to ask ourselves:
`Have we got the best
weapons? Have we got the
most advanced technology?'

She said the three of them
had learned the lesson of the
earlier history of this cen-
tury: If you want peace,
prepare for war. That was
why, she said, the West
could act so decisively in re-
sponse to the invasion of
Kuwait by Saddam Hussein
and the threat this posed to
"60 percent of the world's oil
reserves."
Mrs. Thatcher, now a
member of the House of
Lords, earlier unveiled a
plaque dedicating the
Margaret Thatcher
Interdepartmental Scientific
Equipment Center.
