The cabinet acted on the
matter at a 3 1/2 hour session
during which the principal
proponents of free land pur-
chases in the territories —
Defense Minister Moshe
Dayan and Justice Minister
Yaacov Shimshon Shapiro—
withdrew their proposals to
leagalize such transactions.

Dayan, Shapiro and Reli-
gious Affairs Minister Zerach
Warhaftig, who had a simi-
lar proposal, reportedly back-
ed down at the urging of
Premier Golda Meir. Mrs.
Meir had said categorically
that she would not support
proposals to change the exist-
ing situation.

The cabinet's decision was
seen as a blow to Gen. Day-
an, who has been taking his
advocacy of free land pur-
chases by Israelis to the pub-
lic in recent weeks.
Absorption Minister Natan
Peled and Health Minister
Victor Shemtov, both of
Mapam, told reporters they
were delighted with the de-
cision. It was also welcomed
by West Bank Arab leaders.
Welfare Minister Michael
Hazani of the National Reli-
gious Party said he was dis-
appointed.
There was no announce-
ment of any cabinet decision
on how to deal with the hun-
dreds of Israelis who have
reportedly made land deals
with Arabs on the West
Bank and other administer-
ed territories using irrevoc-
able powers of attorney
rather than normal sales
contracts. Such activities are
illegal and carry a penalty of
up to five years in jail.
The mayor of Nablus,
Sheikh Maazu el Masri, said
that the cabinet decision was
a right one. "We are under
military occupation and such
a situation forbids any
change in the status quo," he
said.

Sheikh Mohammed Ali el
Jaahari, the mayor of Heb-
ron, expressed similar senti-
ments. He thanked the gov-
ernment for upholding the
policy that only Arabs may
buy land in the territories.

Cabinet Upholds Ban on Land
Purchases by Jews in Territories

Jordanian religious lead-
ers had banned the sale of
land in the territories to
Jews and branded any Arab
who sells land a traitor.
Premier Meir told the
Knesset Tuesday that she had
changed her mind on the
issue of land purchases in
the administered territories
after seeing the list of appli-
cations from private perSOns
for permission to buy Arab
lands and watching the prices
"leap skyward" during the
two weeks of nationwide de-
bate on the subject.
She said that claims that
she was pressured by Wash-
ington to change her mind
on altering the status quo
were "laughable" and she
would not bother to rebut
them. Israel's record on
pressure since 1967 needs no
defense, the premier de-
clared.
Mrs. Meir admitted that at
first she was reluctantly pre-
pared to go along with a
compromise, offered by Jus-
tice Minister Yaacov Shim-
shon Shapiro, that would
have permitted Jews to pur-
chase Arab land under strict
government supervision and
license requirements.
Mrs. Meir spoke in reply
to three motions of no con-
fidence from the-444,1estid

JERUSALEM (ZINS)—Ac-
cording to official reports of
the World Zionist Organiza-
tion, Israel received more
than 60,000 new immigrants
in 1972, compared with 42,-
000 the year before.
The majority of new olim
came from the Soviet Union-
31,500.
The Soviet aliya in 1971
was 13,500 and in 1970, there
were only 1,000 Russian
Jewish immigrants.
Six thousand olim came

Free Center factions. She
stressed that settlement on
government purchased land
in the administered terri-
tories was going ahead as
planned. She noted that 45
settlements have been set up
so far in the territories and
observed that the cabinet
had never stated that any
part of those areas was
barred from Jewish settle-
ment. But every new project
must have cabinet approval,
she said.
Proposals by Dayan and
other leaders to change the
status quo apparently drew
an unfavorable response
from Washington. U.S. As-
sistant Secretary of State
for Near Eastern Affairs,
Joseph J. Sisco reportedly
telephoned Ambassador Sim-
ha Dinitz Monday for clari-
fication of Israel's position
on the matter.

from the U.S. and Canada in
1972, as compared with
8,200 in 1971.
Last year there were 2,200
from France, whereas in 1971
there were 3,100. Olim from
the United Kingdom totaled
1,000 (compared with 1,400
the year before). Immigra-
tion from Argentina and Uru-
guay in 1972 was also great-
er than the year before.
