(CONTINUEDON PAGES) TEL AVIV (WNS)-De- fense Minister Ezer Weizman returned from Washington March 20 pleased by the United States military aid he had negotiated. But he was criticized here for not getting enough. Weizman said that after his talks with U.S. Defence Secretary Harold Brown the U.S. agreed to provide Israel $3 billion to aid its withdrawal from the Sinai of which $2.2 billion would be a loan and $800 million a grant. He also said that the U.S. will also provide Israel with military ■ items that have been denied up to now. "This is quite fair on their part," he said. He said that Israel is also to get 100 F-16 jets and that de- - livery will be speeded up. But many government sources, especially in the Finance Ministry, believe he should have received U.S. approval for the full $3.9 billion * Israel had asked to cover the move from the Sinai. They also said that more of the U.S. aid should have been in grants. • 'Weizman noted that when ^Tje wasTnttSTOS. TiTh"^- America'ns speaking about inflation and high prices. "America has its problems and it is nice that they gave us what they said they would," Weizman said. Meanwhile, at the White House, Presidential Press Secretary Jody Powell disagreed that the $5 billion in U.S. aid to Israel and Egypt would have to come from needed social programs in the U.S. He said the allocations would be stretched over three.or four years and would come from a "number of places" in the budget that do not bear on anti-poverty programs. Sen. William Proxmire (D. Mis.), chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, who opposed U.S. military aid to foreign 'countries, declared that it is "a remarkable contradiction" that President Carter negotiated the peace but that "in order to button up that treaty we are going to have to agree to $5 billion of arms- exports to Egypt and Israel." However, the feelings of most Congressmen, who have been quoted so far, is in support of the-proposed aid. Rivlin Announces New JNF Project Following Peace Treaty NEW YORK (WNS)-The Jewish National Fund plans to-greatly increase its projects as a result of the, Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty, Moshe Rivlin, chairman of the JNF Board of Directors revealed March 19. "As a direct consequence of the signing of a peace treaty between Israel and Egypt, the JNF will triple its operation in reclamation and development of new areas,-especially in the Negev," he told the^SOOV delegates from "acr^^tfieXrhiteorstateS attending the JNF's National Assembly here. Rivlin said contingency plans have already been worked out between the JNF and the Israeli government and Jewish Agency officials to begin the work immediately after the treaty is signed. He said the JNF is about to approve Europe Discreetly Mum On Treaty By Edward Eytan PARIS, (JTA)-Western Europe has kept a striking silence over the Israeli- Egyptian peace treaty. The European Economic Community (EEC) nine member-states, usually prompt to react on most international issues, have kept a discreet silence. There has been no joint communique welcoming the treaty, no messages of good wishes and no official rejoicings. This, in spite of Europe's geographic proximity to the Middle East, its heavy oil dependence on the area and its traditional close links with both Israel and Egypt. Some individual countries, and usually at ministerial level, have expressed some satisfaction but the EEC as a body had adopted an attitude of "wait and see," withioffi-. cials stressing, on the record and privately, that the treaty falls short of what they had expected. Egyptian President Anwar Sadat has personally contacted most of West Eu rope's leaders to explain his decision and plead for then- support. He has had over a dozen such telephone conversations with France's President Valery Giscard d'Estaing, Germany's Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, Britain's Prime Minister James Callaghan and even Austria's Chancellor Bruno Kreisky. N Last week, his deputy President Hosni Mubarak" toured Western Europe, meeting with all those leaders again. To all he explained that the treaty is only "a first step" towards a comprehensive agreement and that what Egypt now needs is help and encourage-' ment to break down the Arab wall of hostility and suspicion: A few days later, the American Deputy Secretary of State, Warren Christopher, undertook a similar mission. At the onset, Christopher, according»to American sources, hoped to mobilize not only political support and help set up a program of European investments in Egypt and Israel to help alleviate America's burden. The only country which made no promises but did not reject him outright was West Germany. However, a few days after his departure, even Bonn fell in line withits European partners. Western Europe refuses to become involved in President Carter's peace plan.-Its officials stress their skepticism on its chances pf success and some even say that the treaty might be worse than the previous situation of no war and no peace, The West Europeans are not prepared to invest money as part of the treaty and are not even prepared to use their influence with the other Arab states to help diminish their hostility to Egypt ahd Sadat. Egyptian diplomats in Paris openly blame France for this West European approach. They claim, with a certain justification, that France has used in Europe but also some fi- its influence to turn the tide nancial assistance for Egypt against the treaty. a budget that will enable it to build the infrastructure for 20 new settlements in the Negev near the Sinai border, additional settlements in the Negev near the Jordanian border and 29 outposts in unsettled parts of the Galilee which will develop into settlements. Rivlin stressed the importance of increasing the Jewish population of the Galilee saying if this is not done "we will all be sorry in thefutuie." Israeli President Yitzhak ' "Navon in a message to the National Assembly said "Wherever we go in Israel we meet with'evidence of the Jewish National Fund's well- conceived efforts. We see them in new roads, in the growing extent and diversity of wooded areas, in splendid outdoor recreation facilities." Navon said the JNF would be doing even more in the immediate future. "You will be working in cooperation with all factors involved in intensive settlement of Galilee and .the Negev, ahd • swift development of both these areas is absolutely essential to .Israel's security, economy and future." . Rabbi William Berkowitz, the JNF's president, said the' signing of the peace treaty places the Middle East "at a major crossroad." But he urged caution. "Let us remember that the battle for a secure and safe Israel is not over even after a" peace treaty is signed," Berkowitz said. He declared that "Now is the hour to stand up and declare an.end to Israel's isolation among the nations." Minnesota State Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey IH'told the JNF that his trip to Israel two months ago to at- ' tend the dedication of the Hubert H. Humphrey Parkway in the JNF's American Bicentennial Park was one of the most moving experiences he has had. "I experienced 4000 years of history ih 10 days," he said. He said Israel stands for "a.free, (CONTINUEDONPAGES) .
