State Dep't. Says Exodus
Of PLO Finally Over
WASHINGTON State Department spokesman
Alan Romberg has announced that with the departure of
nearly 700 PLO terrorists by ship to Tartus, Syria, on
Sept. 1, the evacuation of the terrorists, which began Aug.
21 has ended.
He said that during this 12-day period, ap-
proximately 8,300 PLO members left Beirut. This in-
cluded 3,850 who went to Syria, 1,100 to South Yemen,
1,000 to Tunisia, 850 to North Yemen, 600 to Algeria, 500
to the Sedan, 260 to Jordan and 130 to Iraq.
The PLO terrorists were transported aboard eight
Greek and Cypriot merchant ships which made a total of
15 trips from Beirut, Romberg said. In addition to the
18,300 listed, the International Red Cross took ap-
proximately 175 sick and wounded terrorists to Cyprus
and Greece aboard the hospital ship Flora. Also, 2,600
members of the Palestine Liberation Army and 3,600
Syrian troops left Beirut for Syria by land.

Israel Rejects Reagan's Initiative
Israel's Cabinet, sum-
moned into special session
by Premier Menachem
Begin, has rejected uncon-
ditionally President Rea-
gan's call for a "fresh
start" in the Middle East
peace process and defied
one element of the Presi-
dent's plan by announcing
that Israel would continue
to set up settlements in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Begin interrupted a vacationta
Nahariya, in response to Presi-
Prime Minister Begin
dent Reagan's nationally-
vised speech on his "fresh start"
plan, to convene the Cabinet for
its bristling rebuff to the Presi-
dent. The Israeli press predicted
an imminent new low in Ameri-
can- Israeli relations.
THE STATEMENT issued af-
ter the Cabinet meeting, read by
Cabinet secretary Dan Meridor,
called the Reagan plan a blue-
print for suicide for Israel and
said it was inconceivable that Is-
rael could ever accept it.
The President repeatedly
stressed the United States com-
mitment to Israel's security as he
called for a halt to Israeli settle-
ments in the occupied areas as an
neatintial element to the creation
of trust by the Palestinian in-
habitants in Israel's commit-
ment, in the Camp David ac-
cords, to autonomy for the Pales-
In an apparent effort for a
balanced position, Reagan said
the United States would not ac-
cept a Palestinian state in the
West Bank and Gaza and equally
would not accept Israeli annexa-
tion of the disputed areas.
Reagan proposed, as a possible
alternative, some kind of linkage
between the occupied areas and
Jordan, which has seized the
West Bank in Israel's 1948 War
of Independence, and lost it to
Israel in the Six-Day War.
THE CABINET statement
said the positions relayed to
Begin in Reagan's name, a
reference to a letter the President

sent to the Premier Tuesday,
much of which was leaked in Is-
rael ignored or contradicted the
Camp David accords. The con-
tent of that letter was spelled out
by the President in his televised
The Cabinet statement said
that "since the positions of the
United States government devi-
ates to a serious extent from the
Camp David accords, contradict
the accords, and are liable to
cause a serious danger to Israel,
to its security and future, the
government of Israel decided
that, on the basis of these posi-
tions, it will not enter any nego-
tiations with any element." Rea-
gan reiterated that, for his.
government, the Camp David ac-
cords were the only possible
framework for peace talks.
The Cabinet statement con-
tinued: "The government of Is-
rael is ready to resume without
any delay the autonomy talks
with the governments of the
United States and Egypt the
signatories to the Camp David
accords as well as with other
countries and elements which
were invited to participate in the
the areas which, in the Cabinet's
view, contradicted the Camp
David Accords. These included
the status of Jerusalem which
the President said should remain
undivided, with its final status
subject to negotiations the
settlements freeze proposal, the
autonomy-Jordan proposed link-
age, and the handing of control of
security to the Arabs in the terri-
tories for the period of autonomy.
At the Cabinet session, Begin
reportedly said Aeagan's plan
was worse than the plan U.S.
Secretary of State William
Rogers posed in the early 1970's
which called for "insubstantial"
border changes in Israel's bor-
ders. Begin quoted former Pre-
mier Golda Meir who said at the
time that anybody who would ac-
cept the Rogers plan would be a
traitor. "The same policy should
apply to whoever adopts the
Reagan plan," Begin said.
The Cabinet said that if trn'
Reagan proposal had been imple-
mented,, "nothing would have

dan) from inviting his new friend.

let Union, and arming itself
with all modern weaponry. The
l'LO did that in Lebanon, creat-
ing a state within a state. Why
would there by anything to pre-
vent the PLO from doing the
same in Judaea and Samaria."
MERIDOR indicated that the
ministers were unanimous in re-
jecting the Reagan proposals.
Deputy Premier David Levy said
the eventual outcome of imple-
mentation of Reagan's "fresh
start" would be a Palestinian
state even if that was not the

2 confrontation with the United
States but rather was trying to
avoid one.
Tourism Minister Avraham
Sharir expressed disappointment
that the Reagan Administration
did not consult with Israel prior
_ to the President's speech, es-
/ pecially since the Reagan Ad-
- ministration did consult with
i Jordan, which Sharir described
as "an ill-fated move."
The President said nothing
about an approach to Jordan in
the many talks with Arab diplo-
mats Secretary of State George
Shultz has had since taking of-
fice, particularly after it became
overwhelmingly clear that Israel
was determoned to drive the PLO
and its terrorist allies out of Bei-
ergy Minister, called the Rea- i
gan initiative an "error," not \
necessarily because of its com-
ponents but because Reagan was
trying to determine now possible
solutions which should be dis-
cussed only after the interim five
year period of autonomy.
The Camp David accords pro-
vided for creation of condition?
for free elections in the West
Bank and Gaza officials to exer-
cise governmental authority for
five years of self-rule, after which
negotiations would be held on the
final disposition of the territories.
Berman said Israel and Egypt
had the right to define the fate of
the territories after the five-year
autonomy period but that the
Reagan Administration, by try-
ing to do so now, was losing its
credibility as an "honest broker."
He did not clarify this remark but
it was seen as reference to the
fact that Reagan had moved from
being a mediator in the Mideast
peace process to being a partici-
pant in determining its course.
Ministers at the Cabinet ses-
sion criticized Shimon Peres, the
Labor party chairman, who
visited the United States last
month. The ministers charged
that in recent meetings with Rea
gan Administration decision U
seek to link the occupied areas in
some form with Jordan.

ing it would not be "tantalized"
by the attempts of Begins Likud
party to "smear" the Labor
Party's name. The Labor Party

presented its own peace plan, ad-
vocating a settlement with Jor-
dan over the West Bank, at the,
time it was in power and that it
continued to stand for that plan
now when it was in the opposi-
"The demagoguery attempts
of the Likud leaders indicate a
basic lack of understanding of
substance of democracy and of
the fact that the Israeli society is
an open society," the Labor
Party declared.
Shevah Weiss, an Alignment
member of the Knesset, said the
Reagan plan indicated support
for the Allen plan, a reference to a
proposal by the late Labor For-
eign Minister Yigal Allon, under
which Israel would have with-
drawn from sections of the West
Bank heavily populated by Arabs
but maintaining an Israeli
security belt along the Jordan
River, plus pockets of Israeli
security forces near Israeli popu-
lation concentrations, meaning
the Jewish settlements.
Imrin Ron, leaders of Mapam,
said the Reagan plan had "posi-
tive elements" and should be ex-
amined seriously. Similar posi-
tive reactions came in bom
smaller leftist parties.
Haim Druckman, a National
Religious Party Knesset deputy,
called on the Begin government
to prove through "action" that it
rejected the Reagan proposals,
specifically, by annexing the
Arab territories.
The Reagan plan waa also
criticized by the Israeli ministers
because it was presented to Israel
without prior consultation, while
the Reagan Administration did
consult with Egypt, Jordan and
Saudi Arabia.
The first Arab reaction came
from a Egyptian official, Saad
Mortada, Egypt's Ambassador
to Israel. Speaking on the Voice
Of Israel, Mortada said the Rea-

sisted, the issue of Jerusalem,
which also was discussed by Rea-
gan, "is not mentioned in the
Camp David agreements."
"We cannot accept that
(Jewish) settlements (in the West
Bank and Gaza) are an obstacle
to peace," Burg declared, ad-
ding," Eretz Yisrael cannot be

Burg points out that Israel's

It is time to move boldly

_ that is, neutrality
guaranteed by the super
powers and assured by the
presence on Lebnese soil of
a multinational force. .
Disarmed neutrality for Leba-

The enforcement of demo-

ANY FURTHER progress in
the Middle East peace process is
irreversibly tied to a stable and
lasting solution for Lebanon.
This depends on the reestablish
ment of Lebanon's territorial in-
tegrity and sovereignty.
Lebanon, at the geographic
heart of a region in a state of war
since 1948, signed an armistice
agreement with Israel that form-
ally recognized the existing
boundaries between Lebanon and
The neutrality of Lebanon
means peace and security for Is-
rael without risking the exclusion
of Lebanon from the Arab com-
munity until negotiations pro-
duce a comprehensive settlement
of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
For Israel, Lebanese neutrality
will be a "state of peace." No
Lebanese leader, not even a
Maronite President, could carry
the burden of being isolated by
the Arab world. We just could
not handle it, especially given the
economic burden of reconstruc-
Neutrality would amount to a
de facto peace with Israel without
the need to negotiate and sign a
peace treaty. Such a formula
would probably be acceptable to
most of the Arab States, since it
would have pacified Lebanon.
TODAY, Lebanon is basically
united. The danger we face is that
we may be asked to pay the price
of pleasing President Assad of
Syria, or Prime Minister Begin of
Israel, or the Christian militias,
who may be encouraged to be-
lieve that they could establish
their rule and dominate Lebanon
with the help of the Israeli mili-
tary machine.
It is worth remembering that
the Maronites are no more than
20 percent of the Lebanese and
the Phalangists, at best, 6 per-
cent. In a parliament of 99 mem-
bers, the Phalangists have no
more than seven members.
In the past, the Moslems of
Lebanon asked: How can we be
neutral between Israel and the
Arab world? Today, if they ask
that, we tell them that neutrality
is essential to maintain the unity
of Lebanon, but also to preserve
Lebanon from further occupa-
tion, to have every Moslem and
every Palestinian left here pro-
tected against revenge and mas-
THERE HAS been a real shift
among Moslem Lebanese. The
first priority now, as it was not
always in the past, is to conserve
Lebanon. They used to hesitate
between their Lebanese identity
and their Arab identity.
What we tell them today is:
"We are Lebanese, and we are
Arab, but we have to be Lebanese
first. You Moslems of Lebanon
have been let down by the Arabs
when you were smashed, first by
the Palestinians, second by the
Syrians, and third by the Israelis.
You have no other priority except
your partnership with the Chris-
tians of Lebanon."
As for the Palestinians in
Lebanon, it is unrealistic to ex-
pect that, tomorrow, they will be
given the chance of going home.
We would like to see that, and we
will do whatever we can, diplo-
matically and politically, to pro-
mote this because we think that

Amputation Operation
The Begin decision to move in the direction of
establishing more settlements in Judea and Samaria
is the only one possible in the wake of these
developments. It is a stern answer to an American
foreign policy determined to amputate Israel down to
the sliver it was in 1948. There is to be no booty for
the victor in any of the Israeli wars since then but
no punishment for an Arab world determined to push
Israel into the sea yesterday, today, tomorrow,
whenever it will be able to.
. The Begin decision also comes on the heels of
Labor Party chairman Shimon Peres' own "peace
initiative" in Washington the other week in his
meetings with President Reagan. Whatever Peres
said there, we doubt that the Labor Party or even
Mr. Peres himself will be as "giving" in new con-
cessions demands as the Reagan Administration
hopes or as obliging in relinquishing Jerusalem as
the Arabs insist upon in the world of Bechtel.
Still, the impression is that Peres will be that
obliging. And so comes the new torrent of
Nostradamus predictions in the general press. Mr.
Reagan wants to topple Mr. Begin.
Mr. Begin s settlements reply suggests that he will
be a tough bolder to sweep out of the way on
Washington's drive toward the Israeli amputation
Letter to
President Reagan
President Ronald Reagan
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington DC, 20023
Dear President Reagan:
1 have written to you before
(August 9, 1982, and have not re-
ceived an answer. As a 'Regis-
tered Republican' I hope this let-
ter will somehow reach you per-
sonally, since these questions
need answering not only to me
but openly to ail the American
Why is it that the State De-
partment section on Mid-East
policies when advising you for-
get., certain items? As an ex-
ample, had the Arab nations ac-
cepted the United Nations parti-
tion of the Palestine Mandate
creating the State of Israel there
would have been no wars.
In every utterance from you
the American people have heard
only that Israel must make some
adjustments. Never once a sug-
gestion of an Arab compromise.
Never did the agreed upon reset-
tlement of the Arabs who chose
not to remain in Israel (though
100,000 of them did) take place;
not one Arab country welcomed
its "brothers. "Since 1948 Israel
has resettled Jews from Iraq,
Morocco, Yemen, etc. The Arabs
have left their kin in camps. Why
hasn't the United States asked
the Arab countries to disband
these hotbeds of terrorism and
absorb these unfortunate human
beings in the mainstream of life?
^ i m m '
The cease fires of 1949, 1966,
1967, and 1973 have been mean-
ingless simply because the Arab
countries are still determined to
push Israel to the sea, and you
now expect Israel to allow her en-
tire eastern border to be exposed!
If Canada were Russia how would
you react?
Peace between Israel and
Egypt is a great beginning for
peace in the area, however, in
order for Sadat to have been part
of the "Camp David Agree-
ments" he first waged war, pre-
emptively, in Oct. 1973.
And finally, what was your
rationale in notifying the Arab
countries and not your demo-
cratic ally, Israel, before your re-
cent public address on the Mid-
East? What would your reaction
be should an ally such as Great
Britain or France do similarly to
the United States?
Acknowledging all the econo-
mic factors of American based
multi-national companies in Arab
areas, and the United States'
need for oil, the 'Registered Re-
publican' still expects even-
handed leadership to emanate
from you at the White House,
Mr. Shultz at the State Depart-
ment and Mr. Weinberger at the
Department of Defense. Am I too
I hope my expectation of your
statesmanship will be demon-
strated in the near future.

Although Magen David Adom
is the major emergency, disaster

in Israel, it is not recognized as a
Red Cross society because its
symbol, the Red Shield of David,
is not an authorized emblem. Re-
cognition of Magen David Adom
by the International Red Cross

Geneva Convention and would

Senator Hawkins credited
Senator Percy, Chairman of the
Foreign Relations Committee, for
making the resolution a priority
item in committee and said she is
hopeful the full Senate will act
quickly on the issue.
"Since it was founded in 1948,
Magen David Adom has demon-
strated time and again that it is a
strong and fully qualified
emergency relief agency,"
Senator Hawkins said. "This or-
ganizations's desire for recogni-
tion by the International Red
Cross stems from a wish to
continue its humanitarian work
in times of international conflict.
The American Red Cross sup-
ports its efforts, and I believe the
United States Senate'should do
likewise. This committee vote is
the first step toward achieving
that goal."

cuss "Operation Recognition" for Magen David Adom.

Peres Says He Doesn't See Mitterrand
As French Anti-Semite
rael opposition Labor Party
leader Shimon Peres said
here after meeting with
President Francois Mitter-
rand that he did not believe
France was a center of ram-
pant anti-Semitism.
"I myself believe that there
may be anti-Semites in France,
but France herself is not anti-
Semitic, neither by culture,
neither by philosophy, nor by
tradition," Peres said after a 90-
minute meeting with the Presi-
Peres arrived here at the invi-
tation of Mitterrand in an effort
to relieve the strains developing
between Paris and Jerusalem in
the wake of several terrorist
attacks against Israeli and
Jewish-owned installations, cul-
minating in the terrorist attack
on Goldenberg's restaurant in the
heart of Paris' traditional Jewish
ISRAEL HAS blamed France
for having "created an anti-
Semitic climate" because of its
support for the PLO in the Leba-
non fighting. Premier Menachem
Begin issued a sharply worded
attack on the French government
last week.
Peres said he was confident
that the strain in relations be-
tween Israel and France has-been
eased by his visit "because what
was necessary was a clarification
and not just an exchange." He
added: "I think when polemics
are overtaking politics we are all
in trouble"
Peres said that Mitterrand
provided a detailed account of
the government's efforts to
combat the surge of terrorism in
France. Mitterrand later made a
television address to announce
new anti-terrorism measures and
clafify French policy in the Mid-
dle East.
Peres, who is an old friend of
Mitterrand from the Socialist In-
ternational, said France and Is-
rael have similar views in the
Middle East except for the issue
of a Palestinian state and the role
of the PLO in the region.
which was described as "ex-
tremely friendly," Mitterrand re-
affirmed France's willingness to
contribute to a peaceful evacua-
tion of the PLO forces from
Beirut but emphasized that all
foreign armies the Israelis,
Syrians and the PLO must
withdraw from Lebanon.
As for the long-range political
solution of the Palestinian prob-
lem, Mitterrand called for, the
"participation" of the PLO in the
negotiating process as "one ele-
ment, among others."
There was no insistence on his
part for recognizing the PLO as
the "sole representative" of the
Palestinian people, nor did he re-
peat the traditional French call
for a Palestinian state.

Habib Wins Nation's
Medal of Honor
WASHINGTON (JTA) Special Presidential
envoy Philip Habib returned to Washington Tuesday to
receive the Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest
civilian award, from President Reagan at the White
Habib, who helped negotiate the removal of the
Palestine Liberation Organization terrorists from west
Beirut, also discussed the situation in Lebanon with the
President and Secretary of State George Shultz.
AT THE State Department, deputy spokesman Alan
Romberg said it was not known whether Habib, who was
brought out of retirement by Reagan to deal with the situ-
ation in Lebanon, would return to the Middle East. White
House deputy spokesman Larry Speakes said that Habib
would be at the President's "disposal."
The award was given to Habib for his relentless effort
in resolving the latest Middle East crisis against
"staggering odds," a White House spokesman said.
Reagan flew back to Washington from vacation in
California to make the presentation on the South Lawn of
the White House.
HABIB LEFT Beirut last week after the completion
of the evacuation of Palestinian guerrillas from the
Lebanese capital and flew to Rome. He was to have
traveled to Paris this week for a few days of vacation
before returning to Washington.
The French Foreign Ministry said Monday that
Habib had been called back to Washington immediately
and would not make a stopover in Paris.

Streisand's Dream, 'Yentel,'
Finds Her More Approachable
London Chronicle Syndicate
"Yentl" is an Isaac
Ba she vis Singer story
about a girl who disguises
herself as a boy in order to
be allowed to study the
Holy scriptures. For some
15 years, Barbra Steisand
has had a burning desire to
play this erudite transves-
tite in a film. She is now a
substantial part of the way
through the movie which is
being made in England and
This is rather odd because in
Czechoslovakia no Jewish child
of either sex can study the Holy
scriptures, as the authorities do
not allow the teaching of Hebrew.
Streisand is striving to re-
create Polish stctl life as ac-
curately as possible. She could
not make the film in Poland be-
cause of "difficulties." So. some

the farm and three houses that1
made up a place called Rozytly.
once-flourishing, thousand-year-
old Czech Jewish community
have been happily working as ex-
tras, playing minor roles in what
was once their way of life, ex-
tending warm hospitality to the
visiting actors and renewing their
acquaintance with Miss Strei-
sand who was there on a recon-
naissance four years ago.
On her first night in Prague, a
Saturday, British actress Miriam
Margolyes went to the Alt-
neuschul with a friend, a psycho-
logist she had known at univer-
sity who was attending a con-
ference in Prague. A non- Jew.
"There were very few people
there," said Miriam, "barely a
minyan. They were very welcom-
ing and after the service they in-
vited us into a back room for a
meal of boiled eggs, tomatoes and
bread. They sang wonderful old
Yiddish songs, beating the table
with their fists in rhythm No
women, just six or seven men.
Some of the tunes I recognized
from shut, but mostly they were
strange to me. They wanted me
to sing something, and I felt so
ashamed because I had nothing
to offer them."
A SENSE of oppression
weighed on the Western actors
and a sense of shame too when
they were told that the Czech
authorities had insisted that the
extras and Czech technicians and
crew must not share the location
food flown out from England.
"It was an unedifying sight,"
said Miriam, "us eating and them
watching us. They were shocked
by the amount of food we had and
by what we wasted. We were in a
luxury hotel, handsomely paid
with big expenses. All around us
was oppression and drabness.
I'm a socialist and I feel shaken
by it."
Equally shaken was Jack
Lynn, a big, bearded English
actor who, though technically a
Jew through his mother, has,
never considered himself to be
one as he was baptized as a child,
and received no Jewish education
of any kind. All the same, he has
played a couple of Jewish roles on
television as a rabbi in Jack
Kosenthal's play, "Bar Mil z\ ah
Boy" and in "The Dybbuk."
LIKE MANY of the others, he
visited the Terexin (Thereaien-
stadt) concentration camp, near
Prague. "I broke down," he said.
"Thank God some of the younger
members ot the cast got me out.
For the first time in my life,
though I still can't feel some-
thing I was not brought up to
feel, I wanted to shout out loud,
tell everybody, that I was a Jew.
"Some of the extras had con-
concentration camp numbers tat-
tooed on their anna. I said to one
of them, 'Well, at least it isn't aa
bad as the Germans.' He said,
There are more ways than one of
getting nd of us. Hitler did it
openly. We can't teach our chiis
dren, so in a couple of generations
there 11 be no Jews left here.'
"I'm very glad I went but I
never want to go back."
Streisand could not face gouur
to Terezin but asked some of the
others what it was like. Nor could

[uestion that Israeli authorities

hawa said that since the PLO
^presents the Palestinians, "we

Palestinian people are entitled to

a "state of our own."
Freij, a more moderate Pale-

It was all either a pack of lies,
or there has been a radical
change. No one has a bad word
for her; indeed, the good words
pour out in torrents. Her opening

Anti-Semitism in Switzerland:
specter is beginning to
haunt Switzerland, the
specter of anti-Semitism.
Its current expression
takes the form of blistering
attacks against Israel's
government and its policies
in the Middle East, partic-
ularly its "Peaces for
Galilee" operation.
These attacks, couched in
political terms, invariably spill
over into attacks against Jews.
For many Swiss, Israel and Jews
are one entity, two sides of the
same coin, and an attack against
one is simultaneously an attack
on the other: a critism of Israel is
also used as an excuse to criticize
Jews in this country for any
domestic problems.
IRONICALLY, the Swiss were
never known to be particularly
anti-Jewish. One of the reasons is
that the Swiss Jewish com-
munity is small, and Swiss Jews
maintain a very low profile. There |
are some 20,000 Jews in Switzer-
land of a total population of some
6.3 million. The largest Jewish
communities are in Geneva and
in Zurich.
But the war in Lebanon
brought whatever unconscious
anti-Semitism there was to the
fore and made implicit anti-Simi-
tism explicit. This development
is across the board, from left to
right, from politicians to the
average citizen. Examples
The largest agricultural co-
operative in the country, Migros,
none of whose directors is Jewish,
was recently under attack by
some farmers for selling tomatoes
at too low a price, thereby engag-
ing in unfair competition with
private farmers. At the same
time, a soda water bottling fac-
tory which is owned by Migros
was burned down under suspi-
cious circumstances. How did
this translate into anti-Jewish
A GROUP OF Swiss men dis-
cussing the war in Lebanon were
overheard saying, "Look at what
Jews are doing in Lebanon.
They're doing the same in this
country. Create trouble wherever
they are. After all Migros is in
Jewish hands, and look at the
problems there."
They continued to mention
that all the large department
stores in Geneva the Grand
Passage, Pharmyca Principal and
Placette are owned by Jews
(which is true.) But from this
they concluded that Jews own or
control the major enterprises in
the country and thereby exploit
the Christians.
The Socialist Party in Geneva
joined forces with the Communist
Party to collect signatures for a
petition requesting that the
Swiss government reconsider its
deal to buy arms from Israel and
to break diplomatic relations
with the Jewish State. In addi-
tion, the Communist Party pub-
lished an article attacking the
president of the State of Israel
Bonds and the Untied Jewish
Appeal, saying that he was col-
lecting money for Premier
Menachem Begin and his govern-
ment and therefore was acting
against the best interests of
Radical Party member of Parlia-
ment who is the president of the
Swiss-Israel Friendship Associa-
tion in Geneva, has been
harassed by anonymous phone
calls and threatening letters
warning him to discontinue his
pro-Israel activities.
Ruth Raeli, Israel's consul in
Bern, said that during the fight-
ing in Lebanon the Embassy re-
ceived letters every day denounc-
ing Israel. Some were anony-
mous, while others were signed
with epithets.
Some letters stated. "What a
shame Hitler did not finish off all
the Jews." Others said, "It's a
pity that only five Jews were
killed in Rue des Rosiers in
Paris." This was a reference tc
. the terrorist attack on Jo
Goldenberg's restaurant in Paris
Jewish quarter earlier last month
where six people were killed and
22 wounded. None of the dead
was Jewish. In Geneva, graffit
include hate messages such as
"Begin-Hitler," "Dirty Jews,'
and "Jews-Murderers."
MRS. RAELI said that ant.
Israeli editorials in the nation
press and photographs claiming
to show that the devastation in
Lebanon was caused by Israel has
provided legitimacy for anti-Is-
raeli and anti-Semites to come
out of the closet and express their
feelings publicly.
One example of what might be
termed media incitement to
hatred was a recent talk show on
Swiss radio where the host of the
program was reading from Hit-
ler's Mein Kampf. Each time he
read a passage which contained
the word "Jew" he substituted
that with the word "Palestinian,"
and for the original word "Jews"
he said "Palestinian nation."
The Jewish weekly, Israeli-
tische Wochenblatt, has de-
manded a public explanation of
bis from the director of the radio
station and is planning legal ac-
THE WAR in Lebanon' has
also taken its toll among those
who supported Israel. A woman
phoned the Israeli delegation to
the United Nations in Geneva
and asked to speak to an Israeli
official. She reportedly told the
official: "I have always been a
fervent supporter of Israel and
have visited your country several
times. But now I am totally op-
posed to Israel's conduct in Leba-
non, and my feelings have turned
against Israel. I am not the only
one who feels that way. Many of
my friends feel exactly as I do.
We no longer support Israel and
will not again visit Israel."
The harshest critics of Israel
are Swiss youth between the ages
of 15 and 20. Their criticism of
Israel spills over into attacks
against Jews. Not infrequently,
Swiss youth can be overheard
saying: "Maybe Hitler was right
after all to want to exterminate
the Jews when we see what they
are doing in Lebanon."
This mood and these senti-
ments are becoming more per-
vasive and open. A specter is in-
deed haunting Switzerland, a
country which boasts of having,
among other accomplishments, a
policy of neutrality that has kept
its troops from becoming in-
volved in foreign wars since 1515,
a balanced budget, almost full
employment, religious tolerance,
and a democratic political system
in existence longer than in any
other country in Europe.
Egypt, France Renew
Their Own Initiative
_ Egypt and France have re-
newed their efforts here to stir in-
terest in their jointly sponsored
plan which calls on Israel and the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion to mutually recognize each
other and let the PLO participate
in negotiations for the solution of
the Palestinian problem.
The Egyptian Ambassador,
Amre Moussa, in a letter to
Secretary General Javier Perez
de Cuellar, circulated here but
dated Aug. 26, asked that the
Egyptian Franco draft resolu-
tion be resubmitted for a vote in
the Security Council.
The joint Egyptian-French
draft, which details the new plan
by the two countries, was first in-
troduced July 28 in the Security
Council, but it was held in
abeyance because of strong
American and Israeli opposition
and due to an emergency resolu-
tion which was introduced in the
Council July 29 demanding an
end to Israel's siege of Beirut.
The Egyptian envoy reintro-
duced the provisions of the new
initiative which calls on the
Security Council to: "Reaffirm
the right of all states in the
region to existence and security
in accordance with Security
Council Resolutions 242 (1967)
Reaffirm the legitimate national
right of the Palestinian people
including the right for self-deter
mination with all its implications,
on the understanding that to this
end the Palestinian people shall
be represented in the negotia-
tions and, consequently, the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion shall be associated therein:
Call for the mutual and simul-
taneous recognition of the parties
Dipolmatic sources confirmed
that consultations were under-
way between members of the
Security Council on a possibility
of an official Council meeting to
vote on the resolution. Egyptian
and French officials reportedly
met with U.S. diplomats here to"
discuss the issue.

made it clear that the

it is the firm view of the
United States that self-govern
through negotiations involving
exchange of territory for peace.
This exchange is enshrined in
United Nation Security Council
Resolution 242 which in turn is
incorporated in all its parts in the
Camp David agreements."
Throughout his address,
Reagan stressed the U.S. contin-
uing commitment to Israel's
security. He said when the final
border is negotiated between
Israel and Jordan, "Our view on
the extent to which Israel should

yearning of the Palestinian

He continued, "I call on the
Palestinian people to recognize
that their own political aspira-
tions are inextricably bound to
recognition of Israel's right to a

Arab states to accept the reality

chance for a durable, just and
lasting peace," the President
said in a nationally-televised
address from California where he
was vacationing.
REAGAN ALSO stressed that
the U.S. will not support an "in-
dependent Palestinian state" or
Israel's "annexation or perman-
ent control" over the West Bank
and Gaza. He urged the Palestin-
ians and the Arab states to re-
cognize the State of Israel, and
declared that "Jerusalem must
remain undivided" with its final
status agreed upon through neg-
Reagan also called for an im-
mediate freeze by Israel of Jewish
settlements on the West Bank.
"Indeed the immediate adoption
of a settlement freeze by Israel,
more than any other action could
create the confidence needed for
wider participation in these (the
autonomy) talks," he said.
"Further settlement activities is
in no way necessary for the
security of Israel and only dimi-
ishe.s the confidence of the
Arabs that the final outcome can
be freely and fairly negotiated."
The President's speech, which
he said marked the completion of
the evacuation by the Palestine
Liberation Organization from
Ik'irul, was his first outline of a
Mideast policy since taking
office. He said that full details of
his proposal which followed two
weeks of discussion here and
abroad, were presented this week
by the U.S. Ambassadors to
Israel, Egypt, Jordan and Saudi
THE DETAILS presented in a
letter by Premier Menachem
Befin Tuesday sparked a furor in
Israel and caused Begin to sche-
dule a special Cabinet meeting. It
?.was believed here that Reagan's
tastily scheduled television ap-
pearance was an attempt by the
President to make his proposals
of true peace and normalization
and the security arrangements
offered in return."
He seemed to imply that
Israel's withdrawal would not be
to the pre-1967 borders which he
noted had left Israel only 10 miles
wide and with most of its popula-
tion in artillery range from its
enemies. "I am not about to ask
Israel to live through that
again," he said.
REAGAN SAID, "The United
States will oppose any proposal
from any party and at any point
in the negotiating process that
threatens the security of Israel is
ironclad. And I might add, so is
At the start of his talk, Reagan
said that Americans should be
"proud" of the outcome in
Lebanon since the "peaceful" de-
parture of the PLO "could never
have been taken without the good
offices of the United States and
especially the truly heroic work of
Philip Habib.
"The Lebanon war, tragic as it
was, has left us with new opport-
unity for the Middle East,"
Reagan said. "We must seize it
now and bring peace to this
troubled area so vital to world
stability while there is still time."
HE SAID the first step is
rebuild Lebanon because "a
stable and revived Lebanon is es-
sential for all our hopes in the
region," but -x>st of his talk was
concentrated on the autonomy
negotiations. Reagan noted that
the departure of the PLO drama-
tizes the "homelessness of the
Palestinian people. He said that
the Camp David agreements call
tor addressing the "legitimate
rights of the Palestinians."

war. "First the military losses of

'Pletzel' Before the Terrorist Attacks
Pletzel, the Paris Jewish
quarter, was once an East
European ghetto where
100,000 people spoke
French with a Yiddish ac-
cent. It covered a sizeable
part of the city stretching
from the Place de la Repub-
lique, where Zev Jabotin-
sky used to speak in pre-
World II days in the locaJ
Jewish "Palace," the Hotel
Modern, to the Rue Saint
Paul, where poor Jews
made a living hawking olte
sachen, alte shiech (old
clothes, old shoes).
Today, it is a sentimental
memory to which people return to
try and remember how their par-
ents or their grandparents once
lived when thev first arrived in
France from somewhere east
Poland, Rumania, Russia.
The Pletzel is a maze of narrow
alleys and winding streets, fai
from the glitter of the Champs
Elysees or the skyscrapers which ,
line the banks of the River Seine.
It is filled with dark courtyards, "
where the sun rarely shines, and
small, modest shops.
IN ITS center, La Rue des
Rosiers, where terrorists struck,
killing six people and wounding
22. there still are half a dozen
kosher butchers, a Hebrew book-
shop, two or three Jewish
restaurants and an old woman
who sells of Fridays the tradi-
tional chalot.
In between the remaining
Jews, live and work Paris' new
poor: immigrants from North
Africa and Spain. The shoemaker i
who resoles the shoes and boots
of the neighborhoods's residents
is from Portugal; the locksmith is
from Auvergene. France's poor-
t'st province.
The Pletzel is a museum, and
Jo Goldenberg's restaurant, with
its hot pastrami and chicken
soup, is its main exhibit. The res-
taurant was also the scene of the
terrorist attack.
"People could not live, if they
did not know their roots." says
.mold Jew who has lived here
since before the war. "The rich
Jews, those who now live in the
posh sections, and have villas in
the country, spend their holidays
on the Cote d" Azur and drive big
Mercedes, they all have to come
back here from time to time.
where it all started, to remember
who they are."
THE OLD MAN, a regular
client at Goldenberg's, comes in
every day with his copy of the
local Yiddish paper, Unset Wort,
to drink a glass or two of vodka.
He has his own theory of why the
killers struck on the Rue des
"They did not come to kill
Jews. They could have found
more Jews and easier to hit in the
center of the city or in the Jewish
suburbs, like Sarcelles or Plessy.
They came to kill a dream. Yes
monsieur, a dream. They wanted
to erase the past. They want us to
be just like them, people with no
past and no future."
The Pletzel is filled with past
history. Jews first started set-
tling in what was then a suburb
of medieval Paris back in the
Uth century, and after Philip
Augustus expelled the Jews from I
France they returned to the area
in 1198.
THE RUE des Rosiers was
named at the time "La Rue des
Juifs," the street of the Jews, and
on the site of the synagogue,
where President Francois Mitter-
rand came to attend services for
the victims two weeks ago, stood
a famous yeshiva where in the
early days of the 13th century,
Yudah Ben Isaac, known as Sir
Leon of Paris, used to teach.
The pletzel is Jewish history.
Every street, every corner, is
somehow linked with the past.
After the Jews were definitely
expelled from France in 1394, the
Pletzel emptied itself as if leprosy
had struck. The streets were
barely inhabits ted till the early
part of the 18th century when the
rich Jewish businessmen from
Metz and Alsace started return-

the time, the Jews gathered to

It was from the start of the
19th century that the Pletzel
started to grow as more and more
Jewish emigrants arrived. Every
morning, the night trains from
Eastern Europe, Russia, Ruman-
ia, and the Slav Provinces of
Austria, used to stop at the
"Gare de 1 'Est" and a human
mass of poor, unshaven and un-
washed Jews would disembark.
The Pletzel was only a short
walk from the station. Many of
them settled near the Place de la
Republique which in popular
speech became the Pletzel, the
place where the rich Jews, or
those on their way up the doc-
tors, the lawyers, the prosperous
shopkeepers lived.
THE DREYFUS affair in the
early 1890's was their first shock.
The widespread anti-Semitism
provoked by Edouard Adolphe
Drumont, the leading spokesman
of French anti-Semitism under
the Third Republic, was their
second shock. Neither, however,
affected the mass immigration
which reached its peak between
the two world wars.
It was in the 1930's, despite
the threat rising in Nazi Ger-
many, that the Pletzel Jew felt at
his beat. France was prosperous
and the Jewish community's
standard of living unproved fast'
even faster than that of the ma-
jority of France's inhabitants.
They also could fully live and ex-
press their Jewishness.
In the Pletzel kiosks, half a
dozen Yiddish dailies were on
sale, Jewish pastry shops lined
the area's chic avenue, Boulevard
de la Republique, and two Jewish

Current Efforts to Inject
Religion Into Public Schools
NEW YORK Current
efforts to inject religion in-
to the public schools pose a
serious danger to freedom
of religion, the entire Bill of
Rights, and the balance of
powers between the three
branches of Government,
warns a report just issued
by the American Jewish
Moreover, declares the report,
titled "The Fourth 'R': Religion
in the Public Schools," these ef-
forts "fueled partly, but not
exclusively, by the religious 'New
Right' constitute a "major
campaign" to "erode the wall of
separation between church and
state erected by the framers
of the Constitution."
WRITTEN by Samuel Rabi-
nove, director of the Discrimina-
tion Division of AJC's Domestic
Affairs Department, "The
Fourth R' "is part of an ongoing
series of "Pertinent Papers" on
current social issues being pub-
lished by the department.
National director of the de-
partment is Seymour Samet, and
national chairperson of the
Domestic Affairs Commission is
Richard L. Weiss
Pointing to President Reagan's
proposed constitutional amend-
ment to permit voluntary organ-
ized prayer in public schools,
Rabinove asserts that this pro-
posal, like other recent attempts
to legalize prayer in the schools,
violates the principle of separa-
tion of church and state because
public schools, being tax-
supported, "are clearly state in-

the paper, quoting from a recent

the booklet, in a quotation from
another Washington Post
column, 'to contend that in
such circumstances 'prayer and

gious instruction into the publk
schools, continues Rabinove
"the religious 'New Right' hat
launched a drive to accomplish
its goal in another way by
seeking legislation to curtail the
power of the Federal courts to
rule on school-prayer cases origi-
nating in the states*"
declares, "threaten to upset the
delicate balance of powers be-
tween the executive, legislative
and judicial branches of Govern-
ment set forth in the Constitution
a balance that has been the
cornerstone of this country's po-
litical system almost from its be-
ginnings as a nation."
Furthermore, he emphasizes,
these measures could lead to less
stringent enforcement of Consti-
tutional protections: "Sponsors
of these laws obviously feel, with
good reason, that many state
courts will enforce Constitutional
rights with less vigor and effec-
tiveness than their Federal
"The U.S. Supreme Court as
well as Federal lower courts
. have traditionally been more
receptive to claims of Constitu-
tional rights than have state
courts, and also more effective in
implementing these rights .
State judges (are) less free from
political pressure and far
more vulnerable to the public
mood (than are Federal judges)."
Amendment, which mandates the
separation of church and state, is
"first and foremost a safeguard
for the minority against the ty-
ranny of the majority," Mr.
Rabinove states:
"If Congress were to enact a
law barring the Supreme Court or
other Federal courts from review-
ing cases involving school prayer,
no provision in the Bill of Rights
would ever be truly secure again.
For any time that a decision of
the Supreme Court or a lower
Federal court seriously offended
a majority of both Houses, the
jurisdiction of the Federal courts
to hear the issue would be elimi-
. Another effort to involve the
[public schools in the teaching of
religious doctrine, continues Mr.
Rabinove, is 'the powerful drive
to discredit the theory of evolu-
tion in the public schools and to
compel the schools to teach
'scientific creationism' the
Biblical account of creation."
Despite the effort to cloak
scientific creationism' in scienti-
fic garb," argues Rabinove,
"there can be no serious question
that it is a religious doctrine."
RABINOVE contends that
public schools should teach
"common core values that are
broadly shared by religious be-
lievers of all denominations and
secular humanists as well," but
adds, "for reasons of law and na-
tional harmony, those lessons, in
the public school classrooms,
may not be couched in religious
terms .
"The men who framed the
Constitution were painfully
aware of what happened to 'here-
tics' and 'dissenters' in the many
lands where church and state
were joined and the historic
documents that helped shape the
First Amendment warned that
tax-supported religion would cre-
ate enmity and endanger free-
"Religious teaching belongs in
the home, the church, the syna-
gogue and the parochial school,
but not in the public schools of
this country."

The Soviet Union and the PLO
By Terrene. Prtttie
ll^MMton Chronicle Syndicate
The development over
I the past ten years of rela-
tions between the Soviet
Union and the PLO has
I been a spasmodic rather
than organic process. The
Russians burned thier fing-
ers badly over the 1967 war
land were later ejected from
Egypt. Thereafter, the So-
Iviet leaders have been su-
Ipremely cautious in the
[main Middle East area of
|conflict, while strengthen-
1'ing ties, influence and ac-
tual presence on the peri-
[phery thus in Libya,
lEthiopia, South Yemen and
I Afghanistan.
The fratridical conflict between
the Syrian and Iraqi Ba'athist
I Parties has made it impossible to
find a viable alternative ally to
[Egypt. This is why the Soviet
lleaders have turned to the PLO
i a substitute for a Middle East
TEN YEARS ago, the Rus-
sians began regular arms deliver-
ies to the PLO to enhance its nui-
[sance value; they began to give
[consistent backing to PLO de-
|mands to secure a sovereign
(Palestinian state. All sorts of
signs of recognition of the PLO
Ifollowed. In 1974 its leader, Yasir
Irafat, was first invited to Mos-
ow and then, with Soviet back-
ug, to New York to speak in the
JN General Assembly.
In 1975. the PLO set up an of-
i in Moscow, and in 1977 train-
ng bases in Southern Russia.
Since Ihen Soviet-PLO relations
ave been steadily strengthened.
Culminating in October, 1981, in
|lu' logical granting of full diplo-
natic PLO status in Moscow, in
eturn for full PLO backing for
oviet participation in a recon-
|rened Geneva Peace Conference.
Arafat's right-hand man. Abu
lyad, declared that the "decision
4aeY the Soviet Union to recognize
rur office in Moscow as an em-
ignifies recognition of the
Palestine beloiv ii
bind :ind the same spokesman
leclared in tuguit 17, 1961: "It
i I I'.'. capability to sign a
treaty with the Soviet Union, we
would have signed a Hj
treaties; and if we controlled land
we would have allowed the Sovi-
ets a thousand bases, because we
are dealing with a foe stronger
than Israel, the United States."
IN AN interview broadcast by
Voice of Palestine on October 21,
1981, he enumerated four joint
aims for the Soviet-PLO entente
to establish a sovereign Pales-
tinian State, under PLO control;
to strengthen the Soviet-PLO al-
liance; to induce all Arab nations
to "lift their embargo" on diplo-
matic relations with Moscow;
and to work for revolution in the
Middle East based on PLO
Marxism and its "pan-Arab posi-
Finally, on January 6, 1982,
Abu lyad added a fifth joint aim.
This was for the Soviet Union
and the PLO to induce Jordan
and Syria to open battlefronts
against Israel "so that all Arab
revolutionaries can fight the
.Israeli enemy.
For, "The only way open to the
Arab revolutionaries is fighting
and then all friends, the first of
whom is the Soviet Union, will
side with us without fighting,
not one inch of land will be re-
turned from the Golan or Pales-
tine through diplomacy,
memoranda or protests."
Not one of Abu Iyad's state-
ments was modified by Arafat.
Three of them were singled out
by Israel for particular attention
that joint objectives include
the realization of PLO aims by
force, the spreading of the PLO
neo Marxist gospel of revolution
in the Arab world, and the estab-
lishment of Soviet military bases
in whatever preliminary Pales-
tinian state may be established.
IS SHOULD be recalled, too,
that the PLO have laid claim to
the whole of the Kingdom of
Jordan. The reasons are demo-
graphic, because 60 percent of the
population of Jordan are Pales-
tinians, and ideological, because
the Palestinian "revolutionary
idea" presupposed the demise ol
the Hashemite Monarchy. So far
at least, there has been no ex-
plicit Soviet Admission of direct
involvement in destroying the
Kingdom of Jordan, but the So-
viet Union must regard the
survivul of the Hashemite

Monarchy as inimical to its own
The most recent explicit PLO
resolution calling for the King's
overthrow was made in the Pal-
estine National Council on April
15, 1981; it was publicly ap-
proved by Yasir Arafat as being
"our brand of democracy, and we
are proud of it."
So much for joint Soviet-PLO
objectives. What the outside
world has failed to grasp is the
astonishingly close collaboration
which has sprung from them.
Since March, 1978, Arafat has
paid at least four, and possibly as
many as six visits to Moscow. In
addition, he has had at least two
meetings with Soviet Foreign
Minister Gromyko in Damascus,
in March, 1979 and January,
1980. His meetings with Ambas-
sador Soldatov in Beirut have
become matters of regular
routine, generally monthly.
When Soldatov is not available,
Arafat travels to meet the Soviet
Ambassador in Damascus. Close
liaison with the Soviet Union is
further maintained through
Arafat's subordinates.
THE RUSSIANS are very,
very interested in the PLO, and
their use of it is, finally, a link in
the field of subversion. The PLO
reaps the benefits of unstinted
Soviet aid, in military training,
procurement or arms, political
schooling, administrative co-
ordination, and expertise in sub-
versive action and techniques.
Estimates of the number of
PLO members trained in the So-
viet Union and other East Euro-
pean countries vary between
1,000 and 3,000. But Soviet arms
and instructors have been avail-
able for PLO camps inLebanon,
Libya and South Yemen as well,
and PLO members have in turn
been used to train terrorists from
Africa, South and Central
America, p.nd Europe.
No comprehensive conclusions
can at the moment be drawn from
the intimate interlinking of the
PLO with the Soviet Bloc. The
PLO is of course useful < hile it
remains a terrorist organization,
as an agent of disruption. A PLO-
controlled mini-Palestine consist-
lag of the West Bank and Gaza
would be much more valuable.
FOR A STATE so small and
scattered, so economically un-
viable and politically immature,
would be a "natural" Soviet
client even more so since PLO
leaders believe, mystically and
mistily, in Arab "revolution."
What has been happening in
Central America could be re-
peated in the Middle East; an in-
dependent "Palestine" would
play the part of Nicaragua. The
ways in which a poor and
basically helpless state could be
manipulated would be legion.
Here, then, may rest the explana-
tion of the inordinate interest of
Moscow in Arafat and his hench-
men. Of only one thing can one be
sure: that interest will continue.

Reagan Demands Settlements Freeze
New tensions in the rela-
tions between Israel and
the United States have de-
veloped as President Reag-
an, in a letter to Premier
Menachem Begin, de-
manded a freeze on Jewish
settlements on the West
Bank and Gaza Strip, a halt
to the expansion of existing
settlements, and full link-
age between Jordan and the
West Bank.
Israeli leaders, caught by sur-
prise at this development, ex-
pressed anger not only at the de-
mands but also at the timing,
just as the last group of PLO and
Syrian forces left west Beirut and
as Begin was scheduled to meet
with U.S. Defense Secretary
Caspar Weinberger later that
very day.
Reagan's message as constitut-
ing a new American policy
toward the autonomy negotia-
tions and the Palestinian
problem, and as challenging the
basic principles of Israeli policy
on those issues. Israeli officials
also viewed the timing of Reag-
an's letter in the context of the
upcoming summit conference ol
Arab nations, noting that the
U.S. seemed to want to make it
clear that it does not intend to
waste any time to solve the Pal-
estinian issue which was pushed
to the top of the international
agenda by the war in Lebanon.
The understanding of senior
political sources in Jerusalem
was that Reagan issued his de-
mands as a precondition for the
resumption of the autonomy .
talks. If true, the sources said,
Israel would not agree to resume
the autonomy talks on the basis
of Reagan's demands. The,
sources also pointed out that Is-
rael would have to seriously
study Reagan's letter to deter-
mine if the message constitutes a
deviation from the Camp David,
It was recalled that U.S. Secre-
tary of State George Shultz told a i
television interviewer a week be-
fore that the Camp David process
can be interpreted in many ways
and that the Palestinian should
have a role in determining the
conditions under which they live.
This was seen as a reference to
some form of Palestinian par-
ticipation in the peace negotia-
ting process.
SHULTZ, at a press confer-
ence in Washington last month,
also stated that the Camp David
accords had a "lot of room for
ideas" and that the Reagan Ad-
ministration was forming its own
views. He said the Administra-
tion expected to be moving on the
issue of Palestinian rights, but
did not elaborate at the time.
Begin told a Cabinet meeting a
week ago, in response to Egyp-
tian officials who were saying
that Israel was maintaining a i
narrow and restricted interprets
tion of the provisions of th
Camp David agreements, that
Israel would not feel bound to ad-
here to the accords if Egypt tried
to change its dimensions.
However, at least one Israeli
official was quoted as saying:
"As far as we are concerned, we
stick, and we shall stick to the
Camp David accords." According
to this concept, only the autono-
my issue should be discussed at
this stage. Any other ideas, such
as Jordanian linkage to the West
Bank, should be discussed only
after the mechanisms for autono-
my have been settled and au-
tonomy is in effect for five years,
according to the Israeli view.
A KEY question at this stage
is whether Reagan's points are
academic or operational It the
Reagan Administration insists
that the. demands raised by
Reagan be implemented, Israel
will undoubtedly reject them, and
S* confrontation will be unavoid-
able, Israeli political sources said.
The issue of Reagan's letter
figured prominently in the talks
Begin held last week with Wein-
According to political analysts,
the outcome of the session was a
foregone conclusion: it decided to
expand existing settlements and
establish new ones. In fact, the
new town of Maale Adumim,
located on the road linking Jeru-
salem with the Jordan valley
town of Jericho, was dedicated
immediately in a festive cere-
Deputy Prime Minister David
Levy, addressing a crowd of
several thousand people at the
dedication of Maale Adumim,
sharply criticized any attempt to
halt Israeli settlements activities,
saying Israel will not allow the
establishment of a Palestinian
state on the West Bank.
HE SAID not even a message
from Reagan would deter Israel
from building the Land of Israel.
This issue is not negotiable be-
cause it is a problem of survival
on which Israel's future and that
of its children and their children
. Addressing himself to Reagan,
from afar. Levy said: "From time
to time we hear things which con-
tradict this (the demands in
Reagan's letter), and we would
prefer to work in concert with
you. But if you do not want coop-
eration and wish to act freely,
you cannot impose your will on
us if it involves our security and
survival." Levy added that there
would be "settlements in all parts
of the Land of Israel because it is
essential for our security."
Beyond reactions attributed to
political sources, there were reac-
tion from political parties. Yuval
Neeman, leader of the Tehiya
Party and Minister of Science
and Development, whose party
recently joined the government
coalition, said his party would
demand that the government
make the settlements in the
occupied territories a priority
issue in response to Reagan a
Ehud Olmert said Israel would
not tolerate any "deviation" from
the Camp David accords. He
added, however, that he was not
certain the U.S. has yet shaped
an overall comprehensive Middle
East policy. "In the past there
were messages, cables, letter
from the President, and even-
tually the practical policy was
not identical to some of the
demands and threats," Olmert
Labor Alignment dove Yossi
Sarid welcomed Reagan's mes-
sage as positive. He said the
