Gaza Refugees
in New Housing

GAZA — Twenty-two more
families from the Khan Yunis
refugee camp in the Gaza
Strip have been moved into
new apartments.
Some 130 housing units are
being built for families whose
homes in the refugee camp
are being demolished for
road-widening operations.
About half the flats are al-
r e a d y occupied. The new
flats are sold to the refugees
for IL3,000 ($750) — IL1,000
down and the balance in
monthly payments of IL50
After the existing roads in
the refugee camp are wid-
ened (for security purposes),
new tines paved and electric-
:ty installed, the camp will
become part of the town of
Khan Yunis. It will then have
a population of nearly 50,000
— 30,000 of them refugees.
The land once was part of
army camp Ahmed Shukeiry,
commander of the Palestine
Liberation Army before the
Six-Day War.

Scali Sees UN Resolution as 'Small Step
Forward'; Tekoah Stresses Dialog Need

— Ambassador John Scali
believes that the Security
Council's resolution of April
21 condemning Israel for its
commando raids on terrorist
headquarters in Lebanon "did
represent a small step for-
ward" in that it also included
for the first time, a condem-
nation of terrorist violence.
For that reason, the U.S. re-
frained from vetoing the res-
olution, Scali explained in an
interview on the CBS Morn-
ing News television program.
He said that another rea-
son why the U.S. chose to
abstain rather than exercise
its veto power was that a
veto "might have been seized
on by the hardliners and in-
deed some of the fanatics on
the Arab side as a signal to
launch attacks and propa-
ganda against the United
States, alleging that this
proved American complicity
in the Israel raid in Leba-
The U.S. envoy said he
thought there are "definite
risks" in the Security Coun-
cil's decision to undertake a
general review of the Middle
East situation next month.
"I am concerned lest the re-
view serve as a take-off point
and as a forum for ventilat-
ing and exchanging one-sided
accusations and remarks of
the kind that heat up the dip-
lomatic atmosphere rather
than cool it down." He said
that if the review is a calm
discussion of "what to do and
where the next step should
be, then conceivably it could
be a step forward. But I'm
not busting with optimism
that this will be the case,"
Scali added.
Scali said the U.S. has
been talking "very candidly"
with the Israeli government
but would not say if it has
advised Israel not to conduct
future raids such as the one
on Beirut. "They (the Is-
raeli s) understand our
views," he said.
The ambassador denied
that Arab oil pressures affec-
ted American Middle East
policies. "Let me say that our
energy crisis and the fact
that most of the oil is in the
Arab countries will not ever
be a determining factor in
what our policy should be in
this part of the world."
Referring to his exchange
with the Soviet UN Ambas-
sador Yakov Malik over arms
shipments to the Middle East,
Scali said he was "a bit an-
noyed" by the contention
that the only arms going into
the Middle East were Ameri-
can arms sent to Israel.
He said the Russians have
shipped more late model MIG
planes to Syria in the past
several months than they did
all of last year. Scali stress-
ed that U.S. weapons ship-
ments to Israel "are intended
to keep an arms balance in
the area" and are "not in-
tended in any way to en-
courage anything that Israel
might have in mind — not
that they have anything in
mind that we know of — in
the way of offensive action."
Yosef Tekoah, Israel's am-
bassador to the United Na-
tions, stressed repeatedly
that "meaningful dialogue"
between Israel and its Arab
neighbors was the only way
to achieve peace in the Mid-
dle East and the only method
that has not yet been tried
in that region. Tekoah was
the guest at a luncheon of

the United Nations Corres-
pondents Association.
He emphasized in h i s
replies to correspondents'
questions afterwards that Is-
rael wants to "sit down with
the Arabs." He said only in
that way can the future bor-
ders be determined. He in-
sisted that Israel does not re-
gard the present cease-fire
lines as its permanent bor-
ders but cannot retreat to the
insecure boundaries that
existed before June, 1967.
The Israeli envoy made it
clear that he placed little
value in the overall review
of the Middle East situation
which the Security Council
has agreed, at Egypt's urg-
ing, to undertake late this
month. He expressed the
view that it would only con-
tinue to delay peace and
charged that Egypt's desire
to engage once more in pub-
lic polemics indicated that
it was not ready to take the

first step toward peace with
Tekoah also made it clear,
without saying so directly,
that Israel is not interested
in a resumption of the Jarr-
ing peace mission. Ambas-
sador Gunnar V. Jarring, the
secretary general's special
emissary to the Middle East,
is here to confer with Secre-
tary General Kurt Waldheim.
He reminded his audience
that the Jarring mission has
been stalemated for two
According to Tekoah, the
recent Security Council de-
bate which ended with a res-
olution condemning both Is-
rael's April 10 commando
raids on Lebanon and Arab
terrorist violence, showed
showed that the Arabs are
still not prepared to accept
Israel as a sovereign state.
He said that when the Egyp-
tian Foreign Minister Mo-
hammed el-Zayyat spoke of
the need to abolish Zionism,
he was reiterating the Arab
goal of eliminating Israel.
