STONE (Continued from page l) HERITAGE. Florida Jewish News. July ! 1. 1980. Page 7 the Israeli government simply had to no matter how painful. Henry Jackson (D. Wash.), Jacob Javits and Israel's other best friends in the Senate, Conveyed this message privately to Prime Menachem Begin and other Israeli leaders on OCcasions. Creating new settlements during diplomatic negotiations simply provides fuel to in Washington who are constantly trying support for Israel. about the way it is," said Stone, obviously by Israel's refusal to accept that advice. spoke about possibly dismantling existing and Gaza military settlements, but only in the peace agreement. "Assuminq that a good Peace could be worked out in the long run," he military outposts could be phased out period of time. I don't mean five years, but longer than that." Currently in the midst of a tough battle for In Florida, 'may have been critical of Israel's policies, but he spared no words in rebuking r Administration's refusal to support Israel in the What angered him was Washington's of abstentions on resolutions condemning Im up the Carter Administration's record on "Very good, when it's good. Very bad, when. rnp David agreements and the peace treaty were )ments. On the negative side, he cited the Israel at the UN. record of the Administration over the past has been uniformly negative and "Stone said, noting that he would have see the United States veto all those anti-lsrael not merely abstain. "Without a doubt," he Asked why the Administration refused to do so, he said there has been an "ambivalence toward Israel and the Middle East" on the part of Carter and his Administration. "It's as if they really can't make up their minds, practically speaking," he said. "There have been good statements, but some of the actions have gone against their own stated policies." Specifically, Stone said the Administration's behavior at the UN seems designed to encourage Soviet participation in the peace negotiations. The Senator, who so far has refrained from endorsing either Carter or challenger Edward Kennedy for the presidential nomination, said he would support the party's nominee following the August convention. He said it was "too early to tell" how the Jewish vote will go in the November contest against Republican Ronald Reagan. "Carter still has the levers of decision at his hand," he said. So far as Middle East policy is concerned, Stone sees no difference between Secretary of State Edmund Muskie and his predecessor, Cyrus Vance. He said Muskie would provide "more of the same," and noted that the new Secretary's June 9 speech on the Middle East "not surprisingly" was "the State Department's position." Stone said he was still pushing hard to have the United States take over Israel's Etzion and Ophira airbases in the Sinai following the scheduled withdrawal in 1982. "I hope that that concept can be realized before the bases are cannibalized," he said. "It would be cheaper for all concerned, U.S. taxpayers as well as Israel and Egypt, if the United States obtains those bases." So far, Egypt has rejected U.S. overtures regarding such an American takeover, Stone said, citing Egypt's sensitivity to Arab criticism. But Stone remains convinced that Egypt may yet have a change of heart. The Senator predicted that Israel and China will continue to improve relations in the coming months and years. Stone, who visited Peking last year, said the Chinese "admire strength ... they are practical, ruthlessly self- interested pragmatists who admire Israel because it is the strongest anti-Russian force in the Middle East. "The Chinese," he continued, "put first things first. They know they must contain Soviet Russia, otherwise China will be a province of the Soviet Union, and they don't wish to be." He said China may continue to be "anti-Israel," but that won't prevent Peking from improving ties with Jerusalem. "1 think the relationship will continue to get stronger because of Israel's required anti-Russian policy," he said. Neither Israel nor China has any "strategic alternative," and "that binds them together." DINING OUT v j.,,y & ', 1i ', ENTERTAINMENT     == 'lP -lt, J II I t" ,,r[,!,L!
