REPORTER: John Chancellor
(Jacksonville, Florida) For 10 days, Sadat tried to convince Americans that Arabs aren't devils. Sadat wants to keep up pressure on Israel for disengagement agreement with Syria. He wants aid from United States so he can show Arab world he gets something for his close relations with US. Sadat's remarks at National Press Club with regard to Zionism alienated him from many Americans [SADAT - says Zionism brought bitterness, violence and hatred to area. Not against Jews, but against Zionism.] In Chicago, Sadat tried and failed to further explain view. Spokesperson says Egypt sees Zionism as political expansionist policy that led to war. Israel sees Zionism as means of self-preservation. Americans see Zionism as synonym for Israel and Judaism. Leaving US, Sadat has possible agreement to buy nuclear reactors, increase econ. aid and base for future arms deal. Sadat must clear up lingering questions with regard to Zionism for trip to be complete success.
