Labor Party Territory Policy Gets Dayan Nod; U. S. Displeased

fense Minister Moshe Dayan
said he was satisfied with
the recommendations of the
'–abor Party ministers on
policy toward the adminis-
tered Arab territories but
warned the party that it
must go into this fall's na-
tional elections with "a
clear-cut program on such
crucial issues."
Proposals by the Labor
Party include the acquisi-
tion of additional land by
the Jerusalem municipality,
the establishment of Israeli
'settlements in the occupied
areas and creation of a cabi-
net committee to approve
'land acquisition in the ter-

I ritories by private indivi-
duals and companies.
Addressing former mem-
bers of the Labor Party's
Rafi wing, he said that con-
ditions now present Israel
for the first time with the
opportunity to "shape the
country as we would like it.
Today we are deciding on
our future borders of our
own volition," he said.
Dayan called the Egyptian
border the most important
one. He referred to the wide,
almost empty region between
Raffah and El Arish in
northern Sinai, known as
Pithat Raffa, as one that will
have to be populated by a
concentrated Jewish settle-

ment program.
The Arabs now living there
will have to be moved "in
an honorable manner and
with compensation," Dayan
said. "This must be faced
and we have to tell it to the
electorate. We cannot cheat
the voter," he said.
The U.S. State Department
objected to the platform pro-
posals by the Labor Party
that would alter the status
of Arab territories seized
by Israel in the 1967 Six-Day
War. Department spokesman
Paul Hare reiterated the de-
partment's opposition to any
changes in the territotries'

F jh Court Rejects Appeal by 10 Terrorists

Claiming International Law Contravened

Supreme Court rejected, for
the time being, and on pro-
cedural grounds, an appeal
by 10 Arab terrorists cap-
tured in an Israeli raid into
Lebanon last September who
are being tried by an Israeli
military tribunal.

The 10. in appeals filed
through their defense law-
yers. claimed that the tri-
bunal was not competent to
try them. that they were
brought to Israel against
their will and that their trial
is a contravention of inter-
national law.

In rejecting their appeal,
a three-judge panel of the
Supreme Court held that the
accused must exhaust the
proceedings within the mili-
tary tribunal before they can
appeal to the highest civilian
court in the land.
The terrorists, who claim
to be citizens of Iraq, Jor-
dan, Syria, Lebanon and
Qatar, are on trial for mem-
bership in a terrorist organ-
ization and for intent to do
harm to Israel.
The charges were filed
against them under a new
Israeli law which permits
Israel to try and punish any-
one for acts aimed against
Israel even if carried out on
foreign soil.

server, said that Israel had
the right to try the terrorists
according to its own law but
suggested that Israel would
have done better to treat
them as prisoners of war.
LeBlanc warned that Is-
rael's law under which they
were brought to trial a
month ago could be used
against it. By the same prin-
ciple, an Arab country could
place on trial any Israeli
they managed to capture,
LeBlanc said, for serving in
Israel's armed forces. He
also noted that a man should
know what the law imposes
on his deeds.
In this case, the Arabs
were not aware of the pun-

Various aspects of Jewish

"Aspects of Jewish Belief,"
a Ktav-published paperback.
The author, Rabbi Alexander

the democratic impulses in

other elements in the faith,
such as myths, miracles, inti-
mations of immortality and

extensive variety of Jewish
religious interests.

Charles Yost said that under

are to be submitted to the

documents are so-called be-
cause they were summed up

According to Mapam sec-

Controversy on Religion
Averted by Mrs. Meir
Premier Golda Meir's cabi-

clude on the agenda a pro-

Moshe Kol that could have
raised a bitter controversy
two months before the na-

Kol, of the Independent

cabinet to discuss a measure
that would give all religious

The Waldheim tour was
considered a positive step
here because it shows that
efforts to break the Mideast
deadlock are possible even
though Ambassador Jarring's
mission has been in suspen-

The sources said Israel
would try to convince the
secretary-general of its sin-
cere wish to establish peace
based on secure boundaries
and would continue to main-
tain communications with
Waldheim after the conclus-
ion of his visit.
The Egyptians are expected
to try to convince Waldheim
that Israel is the main ob-

problem as such, Waldheim
was expected to hear com-
plaints from Israeli leaders
over the allegedly biased UN
attitude toward Israel.
Israeli leaders also were

expected to raise the problem
of Jews in the Soviet Union.
The secretary-general plan-
ned to pay a courtesy call to
President Ephraim Katzir
and was to visit Yad Vashem,
the Holocaust memorial in
Jerusalem. He also planned
a visit to Christian holy
places in East Jerusalem but
in a private capacity, be-
cause the UN does not recog-
nize Israeli sovereignty in
that sector. M o s t of the
secretary-general's visit was
expected to be occupied in
talks with Premier Golda

Meir and Foreign Minister
Abba Eban.
In his report to the General
Assembly, which opens its
fall session Sept. 18, Wald-
heim took a sober view of the
situation in the Middle East.
"Time is not on our side in
this highly explosive situa-
tion," he wrote in the 15-page
introduction which was a
brief survey of the world's
chief trouble spots.
