The executive committee of the National Jewish Community Relations Advisory Council (NJCRAC) voted unanimously here today to commend President Reagan and his Administration for their recent positions on Lebanon and Israel, which the committee said, recognized the need to couple Israeli withdrawal with a long term solution.

The action, taken at the tri-annual meeting of the NJCRAC and relayed to President Reagan by telegram, praised the Administration for “advocating arrangements to bring peace and stability to Lebanon; to prevent Lebanon’s use as a launching pad for PLO terrorism; and restore true Lebanese sovereignty; and to obviate Israel’s need to repeatedly take military action in its self defense.”
