JERUSALEM—Press reports,
now definitely denied by both
the West German and Israeli
governments, that "Uzzi sub-
machineguns purchased here by
the Bonn authorities had been
resold to Portugal for use against
the independence movement in
Angola, Africa, brought a flare-
up and sharp anti-governmental
criticisms in the Knesset Wednes-
day.
When all the shouting and
recriminations were done, how-
ever, the Knesset approved
- unanimously a statement by
Finance Mini s ter Levi Eshkol,
acting Prime Minister, who said
the cabinet will report to par-
liament's committee on foreign
affairs and security about plans
to insert into future arms sales
contracts a clause forbidding
apurchaser to resell such
Israeli weapons to a third party.

Five parties had moved
resolutions for full-scale de-
bate of the arms sale issue in
parliament. Leaders of Ahdut
Avodah, Herut, the Commu-
nist party, New Liberal Party
and Mapam used the reports
about Bonn's alleged sale of
the "Uzzis" to Portugal as
whips with which to lash the
'government again on the ov
all issue of s
Germany.

Speaking for Herut, Dr. Arie
Ben-Elezer said "Every Uzzi sub- .
machinegun given to Germany
now is an injection for the re-
vival of the sleeping Satan."

Dr. Moshe Sneh, leader of
the Communist party, charged
Israel had been accused in the
past of selling arms to the
Dominican Republic and to the
anti-French rebels in Algeria.
"The trouble," he said, "is that
these reports are believed in
the world."

On behalf of the Liberals, Dr.
Elimelech Rimalt warned the
government that "arms are not
goods comparable to ordina•
trade, but are politically-sens
tive goods."
The Knesset was, then, racked
by a shouting match between
Maparn and Mapai members
when Mapam's Dr. Hanan Rubin
was asked the question from the
floor as to whether East Ger-
many was de-Nazified. He did
not reply to that question, re-
stricting his attacks to West Ger-
many only and insisting that
tighter controls must be insti-
tuted by Israel over possible
resale of its weapons.

Eshkol then assured the
house that the reports of
Bonn's resale of the Uzzis to
ortugal were "baseless" and
the entire Knesset accep
