JERUSALEM (JTA)—A foreign
ministry spokesman said that Is-
rael "has no obligation to treat
seriously" a resolution on the
Palestinians passed by the United
Nations General Assembly Dec. 8
by a 47-22 vote with 50 nations
abstaining.
The resolution, previously ap-
proved by the special political
committee, recognizes that The
people of Palestine" deserve "equal
rights and self determination" and
"full respect for (their) inaliena-
ble rights" as "an indispensible
element" of peace in the Middle
East.
Somalia, one of the eight nations
sponsoring the resolution, request
ed in advance of the vote that it
be declared "unimportant" so as
not to require a two-thirds ma-
jority for passage.
The foreign ministry spokes.
man said Israel could not take
seriously a resolution which the
General Assembly itself defined
as unimportant. He noted that
many of the 50 nations which
abstained based their abstention
on the "unimportance"' of the
vote.
There was no official comment
here on a resolution calling op
Israel to repatriate the Arab refu-
gees of the June 1967 war, which
the General Assembly passed by
a 93-5 vote with 17 abstentions.
The United States, Britain and
France joined the majority. It was
opposed by Israel and four Cen-
tral American nations. The U.S.
voted with Israel against the reso-
lution on the Palestinians.
The Palestinian resolution was
supported by the Arab bloc, the
Soviet Union, Ceylon, Czechoslo-
vakia, Poland, Romania, Hungary,
Greece, India, Pakistan and Spain.

Knesset to Debate
Diaspora Learning,
Student Exchange

JERUSALEM (JTA)—The prob-
lems of Jewish education in the
diaspora will be the subject of a
full-scale debate in the Knesset
shortly.
A motion calling for such a de.
bate was swiftly adopted after it
was introduced by Yitzhak Korn,
Labor MK, as a private member s
motion. It was one of the rare oc-
casions when a private moticn
has been accepted by the chamber.
Korn, who is chairman of the
world Labor Zionist movement,
deplored the fact that only a
fraction of Jewish youth in the
world is getting a Jewish educa-
tion.
Deputy Premier Yigal Allon who
also is Minister of Education and
Culture, said he was in favor of
debating the subject. He claimed,
however, that his ministry was
doing a great deal to further Jew-
ish education overseas and cited
a recent agreement with the Jew
ish Agency's department of educa
tion and .culture.
He disclosed that Israel's edu-
cational television trust was going
to produce a series of films foz
distribution to Jewish schools
abroad as one way to alleviate the
shortage of teachers.
Korn proposed an exchange of
students and teachers with dias-
pora communities. He proposed
a system of mass "adoption" of
Jewish pupils abroad—meaning
bringing them to Israel — for
periods of up to a year for
studies.
He also called for an increased
allocation of Hebrew teachers
from Israel for the diaspora and
anlargement of facilities in Israel
to train teachers from abroad.

were among the nations casting
opposing votes, and Britain, France
and Japan were among the many
abstainers.
Israel was the only abstainer on
an American-sponsored resolution
noting the "critical" financial
situation of the United Nations
Relief and Works Agency for
Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA).
It passed by 111-2-1. Israel sup-
ported another resolution for con-
tinued "humanitarian assistance"
to the 1967 refugees which passed
by a vote of 114-1-2. The resolution
contained a "strong appeal" for
more UNRWA funds.
Later, "Filibuster, obstruction
and procedural maneuvers" by
"a most peculiar combination of
states" were blamed by a key
figure in the U.S. Mission to the
United Nations for the shelving
of a proposal to establish a UN
high commissioner for human
rights.
<Speaking at the second annual
luncheon of the President's Club
of the Bnai Brith Youth Services,
Ambassador Seymour Maxwell
Finger noted the appropriateness
of the passage of the proposal,
during the 25th anniversary ses-
sion of the General Assembly.
Passage of the proposal which
would have provided an office "to
be headed by an eminent and re-
spected statesman to which indi-
vidual complains and violations of
human rights might be addressed
and on which a responsible in-
quiry might be made—procedures
which have been notably lacking
in the United Nations."
The move to create the high
commission which has been pend-
ing for several years, was shelved
to next year "without priority" in
the social, humanitarian and cul
ture committee of the General
Assembly.
The vote, 54 to shelve, 38 against
and 15 abstentions, is expected to
weaken the possibility of action at
the next session since it removed

Israel Insists She Is Not Obligated
to Take Palestine Resolution Seriously

Upper Galilee Village Shelled; Seven Gazans Hurt

the priority previously assigned to
the proposal. The heated debate,
prior to Ceylon's motion to shelve,
was highlighted by a physical at-
tack last week by Ambassador
Jamiel M. Baroody of Saudi Arabia
on Jean-Dominique Paolini of
France. The French delegate had
accused Baroody of filibustering.
Among the nations who voted
for the shelving were the Soviet
and Arab blocs with the support
of certain African and Asian
states. The United States, Israel
and the Western nations opposed
the motion to shelve.

TEL AVIV (JTA)--A number of
mortar shells were fired at Mar-
galiot village in Upper Galilee
from Lebanese territory without
causing casualties or damage.
An Israeli Army unit returned
the fire.
Seven residents of Gaza were in
jured when a hand grenade was
thrown into line of workers wait-
ing for a bus in Medina Square.
Security officials are investigating
the incident.
A curfew violator in Gaza was
wounded when an Israeli patrol
opened fire after be ignored orders
to halt.
A military spokesman reported
that there were 13 fewer border

incidents last week than the week
before. The total was 14 compared
to 27. Three incidents occurred on
the Jordanian frontier and two on
the Syrian line. But there were
only two on the Egyptian front
and three on the Lebanese border.
The biggest drop was in the Gaza
Strip, where only four incidents
were reported, compared to 13 the
previous week.
