Procedural
Genocide for
Israel at UN?

Thirty years after the end of Nazism the genocidal evils are more
in evidence than ever before.
It seems as if the entire world has conspired to renew Hitler's
aims—this time within the headquarters of a movement that was
created for peace.
Once again, only the United States rejects the tyranny of a major-
ity in what has become a den of bandits bent upon destroying the
sovereign state of Israel.
Not only the Arab-Kremlin combine, but "friendly" Romania and

Sweden have joined the genocidal barbarians!
But Israel does not stand alone. With the U.S. as a consistent
adherent to common decency that demands just rights for Jews
amidst an avalanche of enemies it must never be said that all hope is
lost.
Tried and tested through the centuries when an evil world sought
to destroy the People Israel, the descendants of martyrs do not give up
the battle for life at the whim of a pack of would-be murderers.
The slogan, anew, is AM YISRAEL HAI—the People Israel lives!

Israel's Fate on Bargaining Table

Israel's Foes Seeking Disruption
With 'Moderate' UN Resolution

UNITED NATIONS (JTA) — As the Security Council continues its debate
on the Mideast, sources say the Arabs are seeking a moderate resolution that the
United States can go along with and not use its veto power. This strategy, accord-
ing to the sources, is aimed at creating a rift between Israel and the U.S., which
is likely to happen if the U.S. does not cast a veto. In that case, Israel will be
internationally isolated more than ever before, the sources said.
The Council meeting, which is boycotted by Israel because of the PLO's
participation, will be presented possibly with amendments to resolutions 242 and
338, or with additional provisions to those resolutions. According to the sources,
the addenda to the resolutions will ask for recognition of the "national rights
of the Palestinians," will demand the resumption of the Genva Peace Conference
with the participation of the PLO, and request Israel's withdrawal from all Arab
territories taken in 1967. Resolution 242 calls only for Israel's withdrawal from
"territories."
Other sources said that a resolution would be introduced demanding that
Israel withdraw to its 1967 borders within a year under penalty of UN sanctions.
Another possible resolution is a call to establish a Palestinian state in the West
Bank and Gaza.
Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger said Wednesday that the resolu-
tions currently "being talked about" at the Security Council "seem not too
promising." He gave that assessment at a State Department press confer-
ence. Kissinger said, "The U.S. supports the reconvening of the Geneva
Conference or a preparatory conference to convene the Geneva Conference.
But I will not pre-judge the debate which is still going on. But from what we
have seen, the resolutions that are at this moment being talked about seem
not too promising. On the other hand, the U.S. strongly supports progress
toward peace and we will make efforts when this debate is concluded to
begin the negotiating process in whatever form can be arranged."

Rabin Has Own Plan,
Sadat Raises Hopes

Following last week's meeting in Washington between Kissinger and Israeli
Foreign Minister Yigal Allon, Israeli sources said the U.S. and Israel see eye-to-
eye up to a point on the issue of the PLO. The U.S. insists that the PLO recognize
Israel's existence and accept Resolutions 242 and 338 in their present form as a
pre-condition for their inclusion as a negotiating partner at Geneva.
Israel has the additional demand that the PLO renounce its "Palestine Cov-
enant" which calls for the replacement of Israel by a secular, democratic state.
Before leaving the U.S., Allon said, "There is full understanding,
though not a written agreement, between the United States and Israel on the
basic issues, such as recognition of the Palestine Liberation Organization
and impairing the chances of peace by changing the nature of the Geneva
conference."
He said, nevertheless, that there is still fear "that our adversaries will be
subtle and introduce 'corrections' to Resolutions 242 and 338 which will use, so to
speak, semantic formulas used on several occasions by the U.S."
He added, however, that it was more or less clear to all concerned that any
risk to the process of peace that has been achieved through U.S. policy and is
recognized internationally as a U.S. achievement — any risk by minor changes or
the injections of new aspects — would affect the national interests of the U.S.
world-wide.
Monday night the Security Council voted 11-1 to invite the PLO to partici-
pate in the debate with the same speaking rights of a United Nations member
state. The United States cast the only vote against the motion. France, Italy and
Britain abstained.

After the vote, which was preceded by a two hour debate, PLO repre-
sentative Farouk Kaddoumi, in an acrimonious speech, attacked" Israel's
"imperialist Zionist" actions and denounced the U.S. for its support of Is-

He Stood Alone . . . Defending
Dignity of U.S. Principles

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Premier Yitzhak Rabin said Tues-
day that Israel has a peace plan, that it recognizes that a Pales-
tin an problem exists but that it is not the heart of the Middle
conflict and that the interim accord Israel signed with
t last Sept. 1 contains great hopes for peace and might be
the real beginning of peace.
Addressing the Israel Bond Organization convention in Je-
rusalem, Rabin, who will visit Washington at the end of the
month, said he hoped the U.S. would stand by its commitment
to Israel to block any attempts to change Security Council res-
olutions 242 and 338 during the council's present debate on the
Middle East.
Any changes, he warned, would create political chaos
in the Middle East and in the entire world and their affects
would be felt not in terms of years but within the next few
months.
Rabin said that if Egyptian President Anwar Sadat was
quoted correctly, his reported remark in Cairo Tuesday that
Egypt would not raise an issue if the Palestinian Liberation
Organization is not represented at the Geneva Conference was
a stand that resulted from Egypt's interim agreement with
Israel.
He said Arab extremists feared that agreement because of
its implications for a peaceful settlement.

Herzog Boycotts UN,
Cites Peace Menace

NEW YORK (JTA) — Chaim Herzog, Israel's ambassador
to the United Nations, declared Monday that Israel was not
participating in the Security Council debate on the Middle
East not only because of the presence of the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization but "because of our unwillingness to be a
party to the process of destroying the mechanism for peace in
the Middle East by transferring the issue from the Geneva
Peace Conference to the Security Council in pursuance of an
avowed Syrian-PLO purpose to annul all moves toward peace."
But the Israeli envoy stressed that Israel is ready to
negotiate with the Arabs for peace. "We are ready here and
now to negotiate peace — but the operative word is nego-
tiate," He stressed. "We are not ready to be dictated to and
we will not accept a dictate."
Herzog's remarks were made in an address to a meeting,
sponsored by the Conference of Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations timed to coincide with the opening of the
Security Council. About 250 persons attended the meeting held
at the Carnegie International Center across from the UN
building.
Attacking the record of the recently-completed 30th Gen-
eral Assembly, Herzog charged that "The United Nations is
gradually being turned by a small group of despots led by the
