Arafat Declares 'Palestine Liberation' Forces
Will Continue Fight; Rejects Jarring Mission

(Continued from Page 1)

Arafat, Premier Tal and the
Jordanian minister of information,
Adnam Audeh, appeared on the
BBC program devoted to the Pale-
stinian question. Audeh, a Palestin-
ian by birth, said Jordan would
continue to "fight to the finish"
the Popular Front for the Libera-
tion of Palestine headed by Dr.
George Habash who is trying to
overthrow the Hussein regime.
Arafat spoke of his organization's
differences with Habash. He said
the central committee of the Pale-
stine Liberation Organization, an
umbrella body of 10 guerrilla
groups, wanted to continue to fight
Israel while Habash, who heads a
political party called the National
Arabic Movement, decided two
years ago to remove King liussein.
Arafat said he would not interfere
with internal Arab affairs. "We do
not like to fight the Jordanian
government but if they insist we
clash, we shall fight." Replying to
questions, the El Fatah leader said
he was ready to meet Israeli
leaders, such as Defense Minister
Moshe Dayan, "on condition that
they accept the establishment of
a Palestinian democratic state
within what is now Israel." .
Meanwhile. the Jordanian gov-
ernment accused El Fatah Chie
Arafat Tuesday of "harming th e
Arab cause by creating divisions
for the sake of his personal glory."
The attack on Arafat, broadcast by
Amman Radio, followed a request
by the guerrilla leader that sol-
diers from other Arab states be
stationed on Jordanian territory to
protect the guerrillas from King
Hussein's army.
The Amman statement said:
"Arafat has forgotten all about
the Israeli occupation of Arab
land. He has resorted to political
trickery and false propaganda. He
would do much better to call for
a true struggle against Israel and
to urge all Arabs to marshal their
resources, His charge that Jordan
was involved in a plot with the
United States and Israel to destroy
the guerrillas is false. He is seek-
ing personal glory."
Defense Minister Moshe Dayan
said Tuesday that Israel has in-
formation that Soviet ground-to-air
missiles of the SAM-2 type are
presently deployed in Syria. Dayan

livered a prepared reply to ques-
tions on security matters submit.

activities. Dayan said on a tele-
vision interview that Israel's policy
should be to punish the culprits
and leave the peaceful population
alone. He added that the introduc-
tion of crack border police units
to the Gaza Strip two weeks ago
did reduce the number of terrorists
to some extent. But at the same
time, the normal activity of the
general population was curtailed,
he said.

The cabinet decided Sunday
that Israel will stick with the
process of peace talks with the
Arabs through United Nations
mediator Gunnar V. Jarring de-
spite the "polemical tone" of
Egypt's reply to Israel's first
proposals. Israel is still irritated
by what it regards as an attempt
by Cairo to undermine the Jar-
ring talks through leaking Israeli
diplomatic notes to the press.
That matter was discussed with
Dr. Jarring by Israel's UN Am-
bassador Yosef Tekoah last Fri-

Tekoah pointed out that Israel
specifically stipulated the need for
"quiet diplomacy" as one of its
conditions for returning to the Jar-
ring talks last month. Jarring was
said to have told Tekoah that he
agreed entirely with Israel's po-
sition and would insist that there
should be no leaks in the future.
Israel's anger was aroused by
publication in the Tunis-based
French language weekly Jeune
Afrique of what was purportedly
the text of Israel's latest proposals
which were conveyed to Egypt by
Jarring. The Egyptians followed
that up by publishing the text of
their reply and accused Israel
leaking its own diplomatic note.

The cabinet authorized the pre-
mier and foreign minister to draft

a new Israeli note for Dr. Jarring
to convey to Cairo.
An Israeli official told the JTA:
"We want to carry on . with quiet
diplomacy, but quite frankly, I
don't know how long we can keep
it up." The JTA learned that the
government is veering away from

its earlier conditional. willingness
to accept a multi-national force to
police new Arab-Israeli borders

ly accused Egypt of double-deal-
ing on Middle East peace pro-
posals, charging that its note to
Jarring and to the Security
Council was different and less
moderate than its still-secret
statement to Israel through Dr.
Jarring. The Israeli circles also
pointed out that Cairo, which had
accused Israel of foot-dragging
on peace moves, had taken nine
days to reply to the Israeli note
