JWV Commander Criticizes Austria Receives PLO Head at Wrong Time WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Nathan ht Goldberg, national commander of the Jewish War Veterans of the USA, has criticized Chancellor Bruno Kreisky of Austria for receiving Yasir Ararat, head of the PLO as a visiting head of government, "As a patriotic American and as a Jew, I question Kreisky's official reception of Ararat, and the timing of their meeting," Goldberg said. "By officially receiving the head of an organiza- tion whose declared aim is the destruction of the state of Israel at the very moment that Middle East peace efforts are being conducted by President Jimmy Carter's special envoy, Robert Strauss, I believe that Kreisky has committed a deliberate act against Israel, an act that could undermine the peace efforts of the U.S. "The PLO has been responsible for erroneous acts of terrorism, with complete disregard for innocent human lives. Although Kreisky spoke with Ararat in his capacity as vice president of the Socialist International, he cannot disassociate himself from his role as Chancellor ofAustda. I believe that it was reprehensible for Kreisky, the head of a legitimate government, to schedule a meeting with Ararat at this time," he concluded. Ararat met in Vienna recently with Kreisky and former Chancellor William Brandt of West Germany, president of the Socialist International.

Sen. Barry Goldwater (R. Ariz.) raised the matter of the Carter Administration's commitment to Israel in a floor speech in which he set forth a report that noted the National Association of Arab-Americans are fighting the commitment and tied part of its opposition to Jewish se,Jements on the West Bank and Gaza Strip. "Americans sweating it out in gas lines and being asked to turn up their thermostats," Goldwater said "will be interestd to know that President Carter's ill-timed promise to guarantee Israel's oil supply for 15 years is going ahead on schedule." Qoldwater said that "legislation to accomplish this part of the deal for an is now HouseS."

The visit has brought to life a project begun 25 years ago -- the construction of a modern passenger terminal in the port area -- which obser- vers say would have taken another 25 years to complete were it not for the impendihg arrival of the Egyptian leader. Workers are swarming over the partly built structure in a crash effort to get it ready in time for Sadat. Haifa, which many people consider the scenically most beautiful city in Israel -- it has been Naples and Rio -- is Israers largest seaport. But as travel by sea declined and most tourists arrive and depart from Ben Gunon Airport, the city on the slopes of ht. L.armel, overlooking a crescent- shaped bay, tended to be bypassed by visitors.
