Rabin Under Cabinet Pressure to Hold Talks on Gush Emunim Settlement

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Premier Yitzhak Rabin is
under mounting pressure
from within his own party
to hold the long postponed
Cabinet debate over Jewish
settlements on the West
Bank.
The debate, when it oc-
curs, will determine the fate
of the controversial Gush
Emunim encampment out-
side the Kadum army base
in the Samaria region. In
the process, it could destroy
Rabin's coalition with the
National Religious Party
and possibly prove fatal to

the Labor Alignment which
is sharply divided on the
issue.
The matter was not on the
agenda of Sunday's Cabinet
meeting. But it is clear that
the "doves" will not tolerate
further delay. Justice Minis
ter Haim Zadok blasted the
Gush Emunim's April 18-19
march through the West
Bank which touched off vi-
olent disturbances in Arab
towns and in East Jerusa-
lem.
Meanwhile, the Foreign
Ministry confirmed a re-
port that Foreign Minister
Yigal Allon has postponed
his trip to the U.S. where
he was to address major
fund-raising gatherings
and meet with Secretary of
State Henry A. Kissinger
and other Administration
and Congressional lead-
ers.
According to political cir-
cles, Allon's main reason for
postponing his American
trip was "his desire to parti-
cipate in the Kadum de-
bate." He does not want to
hold political talks in Wash-
ington before this controver-
sial issue is settled by the
government, the circles said.
Allon and other "doves"
maintain that the compro-
mise allowing a limited
number of them to remain
at Kadum under army pro-
tection was never brought
up before the full Cabinet.
Allon favors limited,
planned settlements, but
not those set up in violation
of government decrees.

mon Peres, who arranged
the compromise, has made
no secret of his support of
the Gush demands for free
Jewish settlement on the
West Bank. Peres is
backed on this issue by
Police Minister Shlomo
Hillel and Transport Min-
ister Gad Yaacobi.
The most vigorous Cabi-
net support for the Gush
comes from Welfare Minis-
ter Zevulun Hammer, a
leader of the NRP's "young
guard" who has threatened
to resign if the Cabinet de-
cides to evict the Kadum
settlers. Under Hammer's
pressure, the more moder-
ate NRP ministers, Yosef
Burg and Yitzhak Raphael,
have made similar threats.
So far, however, Rabin
has not stated his position
unequivocally. On one hand,
he has publicly condemned
the Gush Emunim for defy-
ing government authority.
On the other, he has reiter-
ated that the Jordan River
must remain Israel's perma-
nent security border in the
east. This presupposes a
chain of Jewish settlements
on the West Bank.

MELBOURNE, (JTA) —
The Australian government
has rejected an application
for entry by Eddie Zananiri,
a leading member of the
General Union of Palesti-
nian Students which is affi-
liated to the PLO.
Zananiri, 29, is a GUPS
vice-president and president
of its international rela-
tions bureau. The Minister
for Immigration, Michael
Mackellar, rejected the ap-
plication for "security rea-
sons" on the recommenda-
tion of the Crime
Intelligence Bureau of the
Australian police.
Under the Labor govern-
ment led by Gough Whi-
tlam, Zananiri was admit-
ted to Australian last May
when he came on a lecture
tour of student campuses.
His visit led to a series of
clashes between Jewish
students and PLO support-
ers.
Zananiri had given as a
reason for his application
his desire to marry a Mel-
bourne woman, Gail Cot-
ton, secretary to Bill Har-
tley who is an extreme left-
wing member of the Labor
Party's national executive
and a leading spokesman
for the PLO in Australia.
The Zananiri application
is the first test case of the
attitude towards the PLO
by the government of Fraser
whose Liberal-National
Party coalition ousted the
Labor Party from govern-
ment in a landside victory
last December. While in
opposition, Fraser had op-
posed Whitlam's willing-
ness to allow PLO officials
to enter Australia.

squatters from Kadum in
Samaria.
Meanwhile, security
forces are investigating
the source of shots fired at
a group of soldiers Sunday
who were driving . past
Herod's Gate in the Old
City of Jerusalem.
Preliminary reports said
that five shots were fired,
apparently from inside the
gate, which faces Saladin
Street, a main thoroughfare
in East Jerusalem. No one
was hurt.
East Jerusalem was in
the last few days the scene
of several extremist at-
tempts aimed at triggering

fact, encouraged settle-
ments in the sparsely popu-
lated Jordan valley and
presumably would offer the
Gush alternative sites there
or on the Golan Heights.
The Gush and their support-
ers claim that the entire
West Bank must be open to
Jewish settlement if it is to
remain secure.
Meanwhile, Herut leader
Menachem Beigin warned
the government Sunday
that any resolution it
adopted to evict the Gush
Emunim squatters from
Kadum in Samaria would
be opposed by a majority in
the Knesset. Addressing the
Herut central committee,
Beigin said he had a list of
62 MKs opposed to evacua-
tion of the Gush.
In a related development,
some 1,000 members of ki-
butzim and moshavim and
various political parties met
at Moshav Ein Vered under
the slogan "Settlers for Set-
tlements." They called for
renewed settlement mo-
mentum throughout the
country, including the West
Bank, and expressed abso-
lute opposition to the evic-
tion of the Gush Emunim
