Israel to Negotiate With States
Not Irresponsible Organizations;
Rabin Sees Only 2 States in Area
JERUSALEM (JTA) — Premier Yitzhak Rabin said here Monday that
the Mideast conflict was basically a conflict between states and therefore the
key to its solution lay in the relations between the countries in conflict.
Israel, he said, sought to negotiate with its neighboring states to end the
conflict — and in those negotiations all the problems which cause tension in
the region, including the Palestinian problem, would be aired and resolved.
The premier conceded that there was "a problem of Arabs who used
to live . . . or do still live in Palestine . . ." But, he continued, "this is a
secondary issue which must be solved and can be solved once the Arab states
are ready to make peace . . . and to reconcile themselves to the existence of
Israel as a Jewish independent state."
Rabin replied to questions at a Foreign Press Association luncheon at the
King David Hotel. Many of the newsmen sought to query him on the Pales-
tinian issue, following a statement by Information Minister Aharon Yariv that
Israel could possibly negotiate with the Palestine Liberation Organization
(PLO) if that organization renounced its declared aim. of destroying the Jewish
state and ceased terrorist actions.
Rabin said he thought this question was completely hypothetical and there-
fore did not warrant an answer from him It would be "wild" to assume that
the PLO would "change completely," he said.
He reiterated Israel's position that there must be only two states in the
area—Israel and Jordan; a "state east of Israel in which the Jordanians and
Palestinians can express their special identity. We see no possibility of a third
state. It will not serve as any solution of what is called "the Palestinian prob-
lem" . . . it will serve to increase tension . . . and it will be a lime-bomb to
both Israel and Jordan."
Commerce and Industry Minister Haim Barley declared Wednesday that
Israel would be willing to give most of the West Bank back to Jordan pro-
vided it was not turned into a separate Palestinian state.
Speaking to reporters accompanying U.S. Treasury Secretary William E.
Simon, Barley said as long as the area captured in the 1967 war remained
part of Jordan, "we are willing to give back most of the territory of the

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Reports arriving here from Cyprus Tuesday reflected the
continuing confusion following the coup Monday but confirmed that the estimated
250 Israeli tourists now on the island as well as personnel of the Israel Embassy in
Nicosia and representatives of Israeli companies on the island were well.
Nicosia airport has been closed since the start of the coup, and El Al .flights
to Nicosia were canceled.
The shutdown of the Nicosia airport caused some concern among Israeli avia-
tion officials because Nicosia airport had coordinated Israeli flights to Mideast coun-
tries whose airports do not have contacts with Israeli airports.

An Israeli freighter, Avocado Kor, in port to load grapes for Britain, found the

Lemberg left their passports with another ship in the port. Shortly afterward,

NY Presbytery Assailed for Refusal
to Censure Bigotry of Minister
Jews, Blacks Appeal to U.S.
for Guide in Wake of DeFunis
NEW YORK — The Anti-Defamation League of Bnai Brith labeled as a "whitewash" the outcome
of an investigation by the Presbytery of New York into charges that "repeated, willful, undisguised
bigotry" by the minister of Village Presbyterian Church had caused the end of a 20-year arrangement
in which the church and Brotherhood Synagogue were housed under one roof.
The ADL reaction came in response to a special Presbytery judicial committee's finding that the
charges against the minister, the Rev. William Glenesk, "were not supported by enough evidence" to
warrant an indictment.
According to Seymour D. Reich, chairman of ADL's New York board, "the judicial committee had
documentation of Glenesk's anti-Semitism through both his own printed words and the testimony of
members of the church's congregation who had witnessed the minister's anti-Jewish statements and
Reich questioned "how the committee could be so insensitive to Jewish concerns as to dismiss
clear, substantiated and unequivocal evidence." He gave as an example a written statement by Eliza-
beth C. Moore, president of the church's Brotherhood Council, who declared that Glenesk "certainly has
been guilty of anti-Jewish words and actions."
Reich said that even shortly after Mr. Glenesk's exoneration by the Presbytery, the minister wrote
in the June 23 issue of the church bulletin that "the rabbi and Zionists of the Brotherhood Synagogue"
