Blasting Israel for Breakdown of Peace Talks Is Unfair: Begin

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Menahem Begin, leader of
the Likud opposition, said
here that President Ford is
a "great friend" of Israel,
but claimed that to blame
Israel for the breakdown of
Secretary of State Henry A.
Kissinger's efforts to
achieve a second-stage Sinai
agreement was an "abso-
lutely unfair judgment" and
a "gross injustice." Begin
was questioned by a panel
of journalists on the NBC-
TV "Meet the Press' pro-
-gram.

selves Palestinians" are

would be perpetrated if one
percent of the Arab people
lived under the sovereignty
of the Jewish state.
He said Arabs living in Is-
raeli territory were entitled
to social and cultural auton-
omy and the right to opt for
Israeli citizenship or retain
their previous citizenship.
But he stressed his position

that the land from the Medi-
terranean to the Jordan
River belonged by historic
right "to all of the Jewish
people" and that no other
state can be interposed be-
tween those boundaries.

Begin denounced as
"sacrilege" any equation
of the Palestine Liberation
Organization with the un-
derground Irgun that he
headed during the era of
the British Mandate in Pa-

Peace Options Open—Rabin

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Premier Yitzhak Rabin said
that the offers and options
Israel made to Egypt during

He also expressed confid-

that would elicit the support
of a majority of the Ameri-
can public.
The premier said that

lestine. He said the differ-
ence was in aims and
methods. The Irgun, he
said, was building a na-
tion while the PLO, which
he branded the "PDO —
Palestine Destruction Or-
ganization," aims to de-
stroy a people. He said Ir-
gun took great risks to
forewarn the British au-
thorities and all civilians
before acting while the
PLO deliberately "mur-
ders children."

He said he was-not con-
cerned by reported neo-iso-
lationism in the U.S. and
said that whatever the reap-
praisal by the Ford Admin-
istration of its Mideast pol-
icy, he was certain that
Israel would continue to re-
ceive American support and
military supplies while the
Soviets arm the Arabs. He
warned that a cut-off of •
American military supplies
to Israel could result in a
miscalculation by the Arabs
and lead to a new war. In
that event, he predicted the
Arabs _would suffer a stun-
ning defeat.

Honors Famous Jewish-American Patriots

A

ABIGAIL

bigail Minis was the matriarch of a dis-
_ tinguished family in the early history
of Georgia, and was a Revolutionary
patriot of classical note. Born in Eng-
land in 1711, Abigail at age 22, left the security
of London to settle in the new colony of Georgia.
She came with her husband, Abraham, two
daughters, Leah and Esther, and a brother
Simeon.
Abraham was a man of means and followed
mercantile pursuits in the new world. His
name is on the first real estate deed recorded
in Georgia, and his son Phillip was the first
European child born in that colony. Abraham
died in 1757 leaving his estate and business to
the capable Abigail who increased the inheri-
tance manifold during her long and fruitful
life of 96 years.
In 1779, the American high command decided
to recapture 'Savalmah from the British. Gen-
eral Lincoln selected Phillip Minis and Levi
Sheftal to help the expedition. After the attack
was launched, supplies were sorely needed and
the commanders applied to Abigail for
provisions.

She provided - sorely needed goods for the Continental Army

The keen old .woman knew the Continental
Army to be a poor credit risk, but her beloved
state and Independence came first. She "deliv-
ered the goods" without hesitation. The retak-
ing of Savannah was an American failure,
leaving Abigail in a very precarious position.
The British suspected her loyalty. But before
they acted against her, she managed to leave
for Charleston, S.C. with her five daughters.
Her son, Phillip, early in the Revolution, was
branded a "vile rebel - and blacklisted; he could
never hold office under any Royal governor.
Phillip Minis acted as Pay Master and Com-
missary General of the Continental Army in
1776. He personally advanced $11,000 for sup-
plies to Virginia and North Carolina troops.
He later served as President of Mikvah Israel
and as City Warden of Savannah.
