ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the confidence of the American Jews to Menachem Begin, the elected premier of Israel in 1977. It states that the American Jews feared that the petitions of Begin on Israel's borders and Palestinian demands for homeland will induce a break with Washington and raise a fifth war against the Arabs. It says that the apprehensions of the American Jews were changed when the new premier took office, in which most of them started to support his government and admire him as a tough-minded patriot. It mentions that other U.S. Jewish leaders, Senators Jacob Javits of New York and Richard Stone of Florida were impressed when they met Begin after the election since they found out the willingness of the premier to listen and communicate in terms of relative moderation.
