Israel Facilitates Arab
Mayors' Bally to Discuss
Actions Against Boycotts

JERUSALEM (JTA)—The military authorities
in the West Bank agreed Tuesday to allow the area's
mayors to meet to discuss common problems—the
first time approval has been given for such a re-
quest, after numerous rejections, since the Six-Day
War. The mayors will convene Aug. 18 in Bet Sachur,
a village near Bethlehem, to consider practical meas-
ures against the Lebanese-proposed Arab boycott
of West Bank agricultural products.
The chairman of the West Bank Chambers of
Commerce will not participate in the meeting, which
they consider a political maneuver that will only
complicate the issue. They have, instead, requested
a permit to hold their annual meeting in Beth1e-
- 7. 1 -hem on Aug. 15 to discuss the same problem among
themselves.
The failure of the West Bank leaders to come
to a mutual understanding has caused Hamdy
'a:ICanaan, former mayor of Nablus, to initiate a public
drive for democratic elections in the occupied terri-
tory. He and his followers are soliciting West Bank-
U.„
ers' signatures on a petition to that effect.
A spokesman for the military authorities said

t policy is to hold elections in the area only if
the majority of the residents want them. So far he
said the authorities are not convinced of such a
desire.



JERUSALEM (JTA)—Contrary to previous expectations, United States Assistant Secretary
of State Joseph J. Sisco probably will not extend his stay here for another week and will leave
today, eight days after he arrived, informed sources said. One possibility, they said, was that he
would return home before visiting Egypt, and maybe even double back here between his Wash-
ington and Cairo stops.
In Washington, State Department spokesman Robert J. McCloskey said it was "highly
unlikely" that Sisco would go to Egypt this time.
American sources here had said that Sisco would remain here an additional week
because of resistance by Israeli officials to his reported proposals for Israeli "flexibility" on
terms for an interim Israeli-Egyptian

"Mr. Agnew was not in Cairo, he did not meet with
Mr. Sadat and at no time did he carry any presidential
message for him or have any other message for him
from the President," Press 'Secretary Victor Gold said.
Gold said he could not disclose the substance of
Agnew's discussions with the heads of state with whom
he had met, but did acknowledge that Sadat's name had
come up in them.
During July, Vice President Agnew met with, among
others, the Emir of Kuwait, ,King Feisal of Saudi Arabia
in Jidda, King Haile Selassie of Ethiopia in Addis Ababa,
and President Joseph Mobutu lof the Republic of the Congo
in Kenshasa. Gold described I the Ethiopian monarch and

noted that they were leading members of the Committee

Jerusalem's Status Becomes Major
Issue at Congressional Hearings

USSR Punishes Tisha b'Av Observers;
RepuutInte Black Pro-Soviet Apologist

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Jewish, Catholic and Moslem witnesses testifying at
a House subcommittee hearing on Jerusalem agreed that they were opposed to a divided
city but differed over who should have sovereignty over a unified Jerusalem.
Rabbi Marc H. Tanenbaum, director of the department of inter-religious affairs
of the American Jewish Committee, said a divided Jerusalem would be a "moral and
human disaster." He insisted that Jewish claims to the city took priority over the
claims of other faiths because Jerusalem is an entirely necessary and indispensible
part of Judaism as it is not for Christianity and Moslems."
I Different views were expressed by Dr. James Kritzeck of the Institute for Ad-
vanced Religious Studies at Notre Dame University; Rev. Joseph L. Ryan, S. J., of
the Cambridge Center of Social Studies, Cambridge, Mass.; and Dr. Muhammad Abdul
Raul director of the Islamic Center here. All of them gave testimony at a hearing of
East subcommittee of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, chaired by Rep.

- Hamilton (D., Ind.).
The two Roman Catholic leaders declared that the city of Jerusalem should be
internationalized, and said that the U.S. "must do everything possible to see that Israel
withdraws from the territories occupied in June 1967." Father Ryan said that "this
would be only the first step to peace in the Holy Land, but Christians are praying that
it will be taken in recognition and application of the requirements of justice." After

NEW YORK (JTA)—The 20 Jews arrested in Kiev and Wilna on Sunday when
they tried to commemorate Tish b'Av by visiting Jewish mass graves have been
sentenced for "hooliganism," Jewish sources reported. The 10 Kiev Jews received
15-day terms, and the 10 from Wilna were offered similar terms or fines.
The Kiev Jews were identified by the sources as Aron Naivelt, Isak Kleisinger,
Nathan Remenik, Leichenko Velednitskaya, Edward Davidovich, Abram Zingerman,
Igor Raiz, Evsei Rabinovich, Leonid Governovsky and a man surnamed Vanseter..
They were charged with resisting the police..
Illya Libman of Riga, who participated in the recent hunger strike in Moscow,
returned there to press for an exit visa, was detained half a day, was ordered back
to Riga and was warned not to continue demanding emigration, the sources said.
Dr. Thomas W. Matthew, leader of a black U.S. self-help group that has sent
a delegation to the Soviet Union, was described by Jewish spokesmen here as "naive"
and "unfamiliar with the facts of Jewish life" in Russia. Richard Maass, chairman of
the American Jewish Conference on Soviet Jewry, offered that explanation of Dr.
Matthew's remark at a Moscow press conference July 28 that according to statistics
furnished him by Soviet authorities, which he accepted, Jews in the USSR are better
off than blacks in America.
Dr. Matthew, who heads the National Economic Growth and Reconstruction
Organization (NEGRO), and Rabbi Meir Kahane, national chairman of the Jewish
Defense League, met in Harlem last May to announce what they termed at the time
