Israelis Still Angry at Scranton Debut Despite U.N. Veto

The United States veto last
week of a United Nations
Security Council resolution,
which deplored Israeli poli-
cies in the administered ter-
ritories and Jerusalem,
failed to dissipate the anger
and resentment following
the speech by William
Scranton, the U.S. Ambas-
sador to the UN, in which he
charged that Jewish settle-
ments in the territories,
"including East Jerusalem,"

Scranton, in vetoing the
resolution which had been
worked out by the Coun-
cil's Third World members
in talks with Arab and Is-
lamic representatives and
those of the Communist
bloc, declared that the res-
olution was unbalanced.
He said it did not corre-
spond to the reality of the
situation in Israeli-adminis-
tered territories and that it
was wrong to charge that Is-
rael intended to change the
religious character of Jeru-
salem. He said that, on the
contrary, Israel's adminis-
tration of the holy places in
Jerusalem "has literally and
actively minimized ten-
Scranton also stated that
the U.S. was trying to
"regain momentum in the
negotiating process to reach
peace in the Middle East,"
and that the resolution
"would not help" such ef-
Herzog praised the veto,
noting that it was "an effort
to stem attempts to convert
the United Nations into an
instrument of intransigent
despotism and to turn the
discussion on the Middle
East away from one-sided
fiction back to reality."

Rabbi Alexander Schin-
dler, chairman of the Con-
ference of Major American

Jewish Organizations,
who met with Scranton
prior to the vote on the res-
olution, welcomed the U.S.

"It will continue for genera-
He said that the U.S. cast
its veto because Israel had
reacted sharply to Scran-
ton's speech and the U.S.
understood the significance
of Israel's protest.
"The timing, the place,
the style and the cumula-
tive effect of Scranton's
statement were damag-
ing," Rabin asserted.
The Foreign Ministry, in
an official statement, also
welcomed the U.S. veto but
took strong exception to
Scranton's speech, objection
to its contents, time and
Meanwhile, Jerusalem
Mayor Teddy Kollek said
that Scranton's speech
seemed to prove that even
"our friends, the last and
only country which re-
mained friendly to Israel,"
do not accept Israel's view
on the Jerusalem issue. But
he also castigated the Israeli
government for its failure to
stress that Jerusalem is the
capital of the Jewish state.
While noting that he was
happy with the statements
and declarations of the gov-
ernment regarding Jerusa-
lem, he added that "those
declarations are worthless,

and statements will not
build this city."
Meanwhile, in New
York, the Zionist Organi-
zation of America rejected

remarks made by the
United States Ambassador
to the United Nations,
William Scranton, before
the Security Council, did
not, in fact, represent a
change in the U.S. position
on the Middle East. A
White House spokesman
had termed the remarks
"a restatement of policy."
Dr. Joseph P. Sternstein,
president of the 120,-
000-member ZOA, called the
statement, "a sign that the
Administration is preparing
to impose its own, non-nego-

tiated solution in the Middle

Dr. Sternstein called the
statements a violation of the
terms of the interim agree-
ment with Egypt in which
the United States agreed to
consult with Israel before
making changes in policy.

He said, "the statement,
by defining the U.S. posi-
tion more specifically than
the words of Resolution 242
is a reversal of the previous
policy of American sup
