Knesset Backs Rabin Policy to Oust Sebastia Settlers From West Bank Site

JERUSALEM (JTA) The
Knesset, by a 55-46 vote sup-
ported - the government's
policy in removing the 150
persons who 'attempted to es-
tablish a settlement in Sebas-
tia near Nablus.
During a long, heated de-
bate Premier Yitzhak Rabin
stressed that the Sebastia in-
cident was not an argument
over the Jewish right to the
land of Israel, but rather
over the foundations of the
democratic system.,
"Our right to this land is
indisputable," Rabin said in
an opening s peech to a Knes-
set session devoted to the
affair, but "in the state of
Israel the procedures of the
rule of law shall be main-
tained and no one shall be
permitted to iolate them. I
regard this event as a test

of the inner strength of Is-
raeli society, and not as a
test of strength for the Israel
Defense Force. I am glad
that we have saved ourselves
pain and shame — and per-
haps even more."
Rabin added that the gov-
ernment would work for the
continuation of settlements,
but "in accordance with the
decision that the government
of Israel will adoi)t."
A group of 35 families
evaded an army cordon in
an attempt to establish a
settlement at Sebastia. The
government ordered them
out but did not act, first be-
cause of the Sabbath and
then Tisha b-Av.
The settlers, who were sup-
ported by members of Likud,
the National Religious Party
and the Aguda faction, agreed
to leave two days later to
avoid a clash with the army,
but stressed they were going
against their will.
The settlers vowed to re-
group and reinforce their
numbers with other like-
minded persons, as they
broke up their encampment
and left for their homes all
around the country.
(Before dispersing, the set-
tlers told newsmen they in-
tended to keep their move-
ment alive and expand it to
include other nationalistic
groups and individuals.)
Rabin disclosed that in the
meetings he had with the
settlers prior to their act,
practical proposals were
made for other locations
where there was sparse pop-
ulation and needed reinforce-
ment. They were promised
consideration of specific pro-
posals.
Rabin accused the settlers
of being determined to im-
pose their_ plan on the gov-

ernment. "The people knew
that the government would
use its authority, and never-
theless they believed that
they would create an accom-
plished fact and the govern-
ment of Israel would say
amen."
lle challenged the settlers
and their supporters to in-
fluence the government by

the ballot box, by Knesset
decisions, and by public opin-
ion, but "not by deeds which
undermine the foundations of
our regime."
Likud leader Menahem Be-
gin praised the Samaria set-
tlement in comparison with
the "incitement" against it.
Somebody is trying to turn
things upside down, he said.

Diplomacy and Nomenclature

By DAVID SCHWARTZ

(Copyright 1974, JTA, Inc.)

A member of the House of
Lords has an interesting idea
for the solution of the Irish
problem which besets Eng-
land. He proposes a British
"Kissinger" be sent to Nor-
thern Ireland. He thinks a
colleague, Lord Goodman,
could fill the points
out that Lord Goodman "is
neither Catholic nor Protes-
tant" and is a prestigious
lawyer and negotiator. He is
a Jew.
Perhaps a new profession
of "Kissingers" will arise.
Some day one may look in
his Webster to find out what
a Kissinger is and will read:
Kissinger: a Jewish envoy
engaged by a nation to
iron out problems beyond
the capacity of Catholics
or Protestants to serve as
a traveling peace emissary
with a bit of an accent.
Considering the ominous
look of the world today, with
all the bombs and missiles,
what profession is more
needed?
Ah peace! Even if we can
only get a piece of peace, it
would also be good!
*
*
The idea of a peace envoy
is not new among Jews. The
Midrash tells us that Aaron,
the brother of Moses, was un-
ceasingly engaged in it.
Whenever he saw two people
quarreling, making peace be-
banie his pursuit.
"Be of the disciples of
Aaron," said Hillel, "loving
peace and bringing all men
to the Torah."

David was a Hasid. He be-
lieved in joyful religion.
He liked dancing and sing-
ing and he always listened to
the latest records. Well, any-
way, it was David in the
Psalms who said, "Sing unto
the Lord a new song."
*
*
Probably no single book
has brought so much comfort
— and courage — as David's
"Psalms."
Rabbi Shlomo Goren, the
Chief Rabbi of the Ashken-
azi Jews in Israel could prob-
ably write a good book about
that.
We once met Rabbi Goren,
when he wasn't chief rabbi.
It was a good many years
ago. He was a plain rabbi
then, but he had a distinction.
He was perhaps the only rab-
bi who parachuted from an
airplane.
He was a chaplain of the
army in Israel's War of In-
dependence. We asked him if
he was not afraid to jump
from the airplane.
"I just said "tilim" (the
Psalms) as I jumped," he
explained.

Museum Gets
New Director

Settlements in Samaria and
Judea are described as irre-
sponsible, whereas Judea and
Samaria without Jews is
described as responsible, he
declared. "I believe the ma-
jority of the people of Israel
are convinced that keeping
Judea and Samaria without
Jews is the record of national
irresponsibility."

Meanwhile, in Tel Aviv it
was reported that a number
of settlements are expected
to be established within a
short time in the Raffah sali-
ent in the Gaza Strip area in
accordance with a govern-
ment decision.

Defense Minister Shimon
Peres, who visited the Sinai
region, hinted that the gov-
ernment has resolved to
strengthen the Raffah region
by adding settlements, a de-
cision which will be imple-
mented within the shortest
time.

.

According to Gen. Reha-
vam Zeevi (Ret.), in an
article published in "Haa-
retz" on the Sebastia settle-
ment affair, the decision con-
cerning the settlements in
the Raffah area was adopted
prior to the Sebastia incident.
He expressed hope that the
controversy over Sebastia
will not harm plans for set-
tling the Raffah region.

What's in a name? There
is the story of the American
Jew named Ferguson. How
did he get the name? He ex-
plained that when he arrived
in the country, he was con-
fused. When they asked him
his name, he thought they
were asking his wife's mea-
Michael Botwinick, assist-
surments and he answered,
"Ich habe vergessen" so ant director for art at the
they put his name down as Philadelphia Museum of Art,
was approved Aug. 1 as di-
Ferguson.
rector of the Brooklyn Mu-
Israeli names make more seum. Botwinick was an as-
sense. For instance, 'Hemdat sistant then associate cura-
is the name given by some tor of medieval art and of
Israeli friends to their new- the Cloisters at the New
born child. H emdat means York Metropolitan Museum
"our desire." The name thus of Art from 1969 to 1971. Be-
has meaning and it is not a fore going to the Philadel-
copy of other names as most phia Museum in 1971, he was

Seymour. Not that Herman
is a bad name, but we would
like Herman better if his
name was Hemdat.
