where the Pontiff is sched-
uled to enter Israel from
Jordan, and will not take
part in the ceremonies sched-
uled in Jerusalem, when the
Pope is to return to Jordan
via the Mandelbaum Gate.

other newspapers also com-
plained against the fact that
the Pope will not enter Israel

in Jerusalem.

It was indicated that Rabbi
Nissim felt that his participa-
tion could be only on the basis
of reciprocity. This was taken
to mean that Chief Rabbi Nis-
sim would greet the Pope only
if the latter would include in
his itinerary a visit to the Chief
Rabbinate of Israel.
(In Rome, Monday, Pope
Paul said, in his annual Christ-
mas message, that the purpose
of his forthcoming pilgrimage
to the Hily Land is "solely
religious." He stated he will
greet not only Christians but
also "those outside the fold of
Christ," and our good inten-
tions will embrace all the peo-
ples of the earth, far and
near.")
The plans were presented on
behalf of the special Ministerial
Committee by Deputy Premier
Abba S. Eban. As planned, the
Pope will be greeted when he
enters Israel near the Jordanian
border, at Megiddo. Some 10
hours later, when the Pontiff
leaves Israel for his return to
Jordan, via the Mandelbaum
Gate, in Jerusalem, President
Shazar and the Cabinet will be
there to say farewell to the head
of the Catholic Church.

At the Mandelbaum Gate,
there will be a brief cere-
mony, lasting two minutes.
During the Pontiffs' visit, the
Pope will be accompanied by
an entourage of 31 persons.
When Pope Paul enters Jeru-
salem, on his return trip to
Jordan, he will be greeted by
Jerusalem's Mayor Mordechal
Ish-Shalom and other city of-
ficials.

Eban reported that the plans

have been approved by Vatican

authorities. Under the arrange-
ments, the Pope will be accom-
panied by a security detail from
the Vatican, will be with him.
All responsibility for the secur-
ity of the Pope and his entour-
age in Israel will be delegated
to Israeli authorities. About
3,000 Israeli policemen will be
on duty as guards for the visitors
from the Vatican.

There was dissatisfaction
with the arrangements in the
Israeli press and among some
of the opposition parties. Da-
var, pro-government organ of
the Histadrut, expressed the
opinion that . only the Cabinet
should go to meet the Pope
a Megiddo, but not President

Shazar will deliver a brief wel-
coming address and present the
Pope with a specially - minted
gold Pilgrims Medallion set in
olive wood. Similar medallions
will be presented to the Cardi-
nals accompanying the Pontiff.
There were unconfirmed re-
ports that President S h a z a r
might include in his welcome
address a request for the Pope's
intervention to open Jewish
Holy Places in old Jerusalem.
Jordan has refused, since the
signing of the Israel-J or d a n
Mixed Armistice agreement in
1949, to abide by a -provision in
that pact stipulating free access
to those places.
A Herut spokesman raised the
question as to whether Presi-
dent Shazar should welcome the
Pope outside of Jerusalem. Of-
ficial sources stressed, however,
that courtesy required that the
Pope be greeted at whatever
point of entrance into Israel
he chose but the same sources
conceded that the route chosen
was not accidental.
