Ben-Gurion Wants Jewish Settlements in Old City,
Use of Half of Mt. Scopus Hebrew University Facilities

(Direct .(TA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

JERUSALEM—Former Premier
David Ben•Gurion proposed in par-
liament Monday th at a belt of
Jewish settlement should be estab-
lished around the former Old City
of Jerusalem as part of a program
of intensive Jewish settlement of
the area Ile spoke during the de-
bate on Foreign Minister Abba
Eban's report on foreign policy.

Ile also proposed that the He-
brew University should transfer at
least half of its facilities to the
former campus on Mount Scopus,
which was abandoned when Jordan
seized the Old City and its environs
in the 1948 war. A small mainte-
nance unit remained on the Mount
Scopus enclave which was serv-
iced by a twice•a-month convoy
from Israel during the 19 years
until Israel took the area in the
June War. Ben-Gurion urged also
that housing should be established
on Mount Scopus for teachers and
students.

between war and peace and that
for Israel and the Arab states
there can be nothing between
continuation of the present situa-
tion and the establishment of
peace.

I In Londo n, the British
Friends of the Hebrew Univer-
sity issued a statement declaring
that Israel's recovery of the
Mount Scopus area offered an
opportunity for further develop-
ment of the university's facilities
but that full advantage of the
opportunity could be taken only
if societies of friends of the
university throughout the world
would contribute an additional
3,000,000 Israel pounds ($1,000,-
000). The statement was signed
by Lord Cohen of Walmer, Dr.
Alec Lerner and Prof. „Norman
Bentwich.)
Ben-Gurion proposed also that
at least 20,000 Jewish families
should settle in the former Jewish
quarter of Old Jerusalem which
the Jordanians destroyed and in
the empty areas around the Old
City which have been incorporated
into the reunited Jerusalem. He
said his proposed belt of Jewish
population would contribute to the
raising of the' standard of living
of Arab residents of the area.
He emphasized that plans to
give "Jewry's Eternal Capital" a
Jewish character should not he
done by evicting the Arab popula- '
lion, not even one soul." Ile •
urged also that the Kalandria air-
port, on the site of the former
Jewish village of Etarot, which
was incorporated in the enlarged
capital. should be developed as an
international airport.
Ile said his proposals were based
on the idea that Jerusalem should
he a hustling commercial and in-
dustrial center and the capital of
Israel not only in name.
S.
Foreign Minister Abba
Eban told the Israel Parliament
Sunday that there is no stage

Despite the "overwhelming pow-
er of the United States and the
Soviet Union," the foreign minis-
ter told parliament, "The only dia-
logue that can change reality in
the area is a dialogue among the
states themselves. Renunciation of
Arab belligerence, which the
Arabs refuse to give up, can be
tested only through deeds. State-
ments will not be enough. The
question is whether the Arab
states will be ready to conduct
talks with Israel designed at con-
cluding a, peace treaty."

A different fiscal rule was put
into effection on the West Bank
of the Jordan River. There, legal
tender will be given recognition to
both the Israeli pound and the
Jordanian dinar. The rate of ex-
change for the dinar was pegged
on the West Bank at 8.4 Israeli
pounds. The dinar is pegged by
Jordan to the British pound, which
is worth $2.84 and has a free rate
of one-third the value of the dollar.

of the argument on behalf of those
who act to destroy Israel — then
cry out when their intended vic-
tim refuses to resign itself to this
fate."

The foreign minister said that
"by rejecting the Arab and So-
viet resolutions calling on Israel
to withdraw her force s, the
United Nations in fact accepted
the rule that one should not deal
with the outcome of war without
dealing with its causes."

Eban spoke to a crowded house,
making his first report since his
return from New York where he
led the Israel delegation during
the debates in the Security Coun-
cil and the special emergency ses-
sion of the General Assembly on
the Arab-Israeli crisis.

Regarding the status of Jeru-
salem, with which the Assembly
dealt in two separate resolutions,
Eban expressed the hope that the
world would recognize the "new
raility" in the city, which, he said,
serves the vital interests of the
city's population and the aspira-
tions of mankind. Underlying Is-
rael's policy on Jerusalem, he said,
are three basic aims: the integrity
of the city, its welfare and its
holiness.

Eban affirmed that Israel in-
tended to observe the cease-fire
arrangements "in letter and in
spirit" but he stressed that the
truce arrangements must be based
on mutuality and equality. "This,"
he said, "holds true in the Suez
Canal where the demarcation line
runs in the middle of the canal."
He said that "experience makes it
understandable" that the peace
proposals Israel is ready to offer
the Arab states "will reflect anxi-
ety over our security. But every
reasonable program," he said,
"must serve the mutual needs of
both sides. In this spirit, Israel is
ready for talks with every Arab
state separately."

Eban voiced sharp criticism
of the Soviet Union's attitude in
both the Security Council and in
the Assembly, and condemned its
attacks on the Jewish people. He
said that The Jewish people have
been frequently denigrated and
attacked. But rarely has there
been such vicious and concen-
trated vituperation as that used
by the Soviet delegation, headed
by its prime minister. But Soviet
efforts to obtain United Nations
backing for the Arab attackers
ended in failure. World opinion
has begun to realize the absurdity
