Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 16-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, October 4, 1973 Emigrating Soviet Jews Move on to keep camp open By OSWALD JOHNSTON Washington Star WASHINGTON The pkmiu'd Austrian closedown under iciTorist pressure Migrant workers get UI pay TORONTO iCPi A senior official of the immigration de- li ar I m o n t says t h a t more than 3.000 migrant worki-rs from such countries as I'ortugal and Italy are drawing unemployment in- surance benefits from Canada. lie said the seasonal workers have been flying to Canada for years as "visitors" and working in seasonal construction jobs from Mav until October. ill a transit camp for emigrating Soviet .Jews has thrown the Nixon administra- tion into a quandary in which several basics of foreign are at odds. A diplomatic effort is under way to persuade Chancellor Bruno Kreisky's government to leave the door open to Soviet .Jews heading Tor Israel, even if the Schonau Castle camp should be closed. But officials are admitting nothing publicly. EXPLAIN SILENCE Their silence is explained by I he fact that these fundamen- tal strands of administration policy are in conflict: Terrorism. Washington considers itself the world leader in combatting efforts by terrorist groups to change their policies by blackmail, and only last March President Nixon publicly repudiated any deal with terrorists even while the lives of two .American diplomats held .hostage by Palestinians in Khartoum hung in the balance The two eventually were murdered. The I'liited Stales considers itself a champion of human rights, and administration officials insist that quiet diplomacy has been instrumental in the immigration to Israel of some 80.000 soviet Jews since early 1971. Detente. The administra- tion is acutely embarrassed at the prospect of trade and tariff advantages, and possiblv credit advantages as well, being withheld by Congress Irom the Soviet I'ninn as long as Soviet .Jews arc nut allowed to emigrate lively. The three themes have now converged The decision taken in Vienna on Saturday to close down the Schonau transit camp, the main staging area lur Soviet .Jews bound for Israel, has resulted in a near- silence that in the short run cmild encourage both Arab ex- tremists and Senate op- ponents of Soviet trade.

It remains unclear to American intelligence analysts whether the medium- range bombers are in Baghdad on a ''training exer- cise" for Soviet forces or whether the planes will be turned over to the Iraqi Air "orce. The general presumption among both state and defense department officials, however, is that the planes are intended for Iraq, which in recent years has been the recipient of large-scale arms aid from the Soviet Union. This presumption is supported by the Soviet Union training on how to fly and maintain the relatively sophisticated bomber. The flights marked the first time that the bomber, which made its first public appearance in 1961. has been deployed outside the Soviet Union or eastern Europe. The Soviet Union went to some lengths to conceal the flights, filing, according to defense of- ficials, a flight plan with the Turkish government listing another, older bomber which would be engaged in flight over Turkish territory. With its' 1400-mile range, the bomber, capable of speeds around 900 miles an hour, could represent a potential threat to Israel or Iran two of Iraq's adversaries in Mid- dle Kast politics. The general assessment of U.S. defense and state department of- ficials, however, is that the in- troduction of Soviet super- sonic bombers into the Middle Kast arms race in no way upsets the military balance in the area and that both the Ira- nian and Israeli air forces are completely capable of dealing with the bomber. T h e assessment of American officials, therefore, is that the deployment of the bombers into the Middle East was a politically motivated move, with the Soviets trying to use a relatively spectacular arms deal to restore the somewhat sagging position of the Soviet Union in the Arab world. If the bombers are to be turned over to Iraq, state department analysts speculate that the deal was probably worked out last year at the time when Soviet forces were expelled from Egypt and the Soviet Union began wooing Arab states sorrow Jewish emigrant boy from the USSR and his grandmother await trans- portation to transit camp at the railway station in Vienna when Jews arrived despite pending closure of the camp.
