The commando position is that
there can be no peace with Israel
and that the Israeli state must be
liquidated. One guerrilla spokes-
man warned last week that any
Arab government leader who
moves toward peace with Israel
will be signing his own death war-'
rant. Although commando govern-
ment confrontations have been
limited so far to Jordan and Leba-
non, observers believe it could also
occur in Egypt with much more
serious consequences if talk of a

solidified its support of the Pal-
estinian Arabs; and has de-
clared its intention to "support

movement, to overthrow" what
he called Israel's "racist state
based on religious fanaticism."
Suhothov reiterated the Soviet
Union's endorsement of the "crea-
tion of a democratic state in Pales-
tine," one with an Arab majority.
The statement was said to be
the Kremlin's staunchest backing
of the Palestinian Arabs to date.
The news conference was timed
to coincide with Sisco's visit.
It was reported that Amman ra-
dio did not carry the details of the
Soviet attache's statement.

Rabbi Jacobovitz."

SEATTLE (JTA)—The admin-
istration of Seattle University, a
Jesuit institution, has bowed to
student demands. supported by the
faculty senate, and agreed to rein-
state Rabbi Arthur Jacobovitz as
a member of the faculty, to teach
one course in Judaica in the next
spring term.
Previously, the administration
had dropped the Jewish theology
courses which Dr. Jacobovitz had
given there since 1961. on the
grounds of economy although the
rabbi, who is Hillel Foundation
director at the University of Wash-
ington. had offered to teach with-
out fee.
More than 1.100 students signed
the petition urging the rabbi's
reappointment.
The faculty senate, by a 9- 8
vote, requested a budget grant
of S1,000 to permit continuation
of Rabbi Jacobovitz's two courses
in Jewish history and Jewish
theology, but the university ad-
ministration allowed only 5500
for one course.
The Seattle University student
newspaper, the Spectator, report-
ing the student demands for re-
tention of the Judaica courses, said
that "there has been hardly an ,
issue in recent times which has
