Peres Attack Fuels Government
Rift Between Rabin, Defense Chief

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The Labor Party's leader-
ship is urgently trying to
dampen the long simmering
feud between Premier Yit-
zhak Rabin and Defense
Minister Shimon Peres
which flared openly at a
Labor Alignment leadership
meeting in Tel Aviv last
week.
Peres delivered what pol-
itical sources described as
the most bitter and unres-
trained attack ever made on
the Premier by a party col-
league,
Peres was 'inc-ensed by
remarks attributed to "an
inside source very close to
Rabin" published by Haar-
etz columnist, Yoel Marcus.

The defense minister ac-
cused Rabin of trying to set
himself up as a quasi-auto-
cratic ruler without regard
to the views of other minis-
ters or of important sections
of his own Labor Party.
A "Source close to Ra-
bin" told newsmen the
premier felt that Peres had
cited "out-of-context"
statements from the Haar-
etz article and had made a
tendentious and emotional
attack. According to the
source, that was all Rabin
intended to say in reply to
Peres and he hoped the
incident would now be
closed.
Peres was affronted by a
number of personal and pol-
itical remarks attributed to
Rabin. These included the
alleged assertion by the
premier that he was not
dominated by his defense
minister as he claimed for-
mer Premier Golda Meir
had been dominated by
Moshe Dayan during her ad-
ministration. Rabin also re-
portedly expressed the wish
that the premier be empow-
ered to'fire a Cabinet minis-
ter. Under present Israeli
law this cannot be done.
Peres retorted that Rabin

63 for Bravery

could fire his ministers by
resigning himself, thereby
dissolving the government.
Peres also took angry issue
with Rabin's reported belief
that the Rafi wing of the La-
bor Party — of which Peres
and his predecessor, Dayan
are leaders — is not as
strong as it once was.
But the defense minister
aimed his sharpest attack
on Rabin's policies with re-
gard to Jewish settlement
on the West Bank. He de-
manded to know what right
Rabin had to say that Kir-
yat Arba was a mistake
and, by implication, that
Upper Nazareth was a mis-
take.
Kirya Arba is a Jewish
enclave adjacent to the
Arab town of Hebron es-
tablished by Orthodox na-
tionalists some years ago.
Upper Nazareth is a Jew-
ish town adjacent to Naza-
reth, in Galilee, the largest
Arab town in Israel.
Rabin had told'a meeting
of key members of the La-
bor Party's moshavim sec-
tion that the money and ef-
fort the government had
expended on Kiryat Arba
could have been used to bet-
ter advantage in the Gush
Etzion area midway be-
tween Jerusalem and He-
bron.
The premier- noted that a
large number of flats were
vacant in Kirya Arba and
there was .no apparent de-
sire by Israelis to move into
the enclave. He asserted
that Kirya Arba's failure
proved that it had been a
mistake to develop Jewish
appendages to major Arab --
population centers.
Rabin also told the same
meeting that his govern-
ment generally adhered to
the settlement policies of
Mrs. Meir's government
which are based on a funda-
mental readiness for terri-
torial concessions. Peres
angrily demanded to know
by what right the premier
.could speak of Israel's readi-
ness-for large-scale with-
drawals from the West
Bank.

Peres claimed that the

Rabin government was, in
fact, going beyond the set-
tlement policy of the Meir
government. He said that
in addition to Jewish set-
tlements in the Jordan
Valley, the present regime
supports Jewish settle-
ments, for security rea-
sons, on the easternmost
ridge of the Samarian
highlands. This, he said,
meant that the govern-
ment is irrevocably op-
posed to ceding territory
west of the Jordan River to
any foreign government.
Peres maintained that in
the interests of security,
Israel should in fact perma-
nently retain the entire Sa-
marian region. Rabin has
said that to do so would de-
prive Israel of its credibility
as a negotiating partner in
future peace talks with the
Arabs.
Rabin also accused the
Likud opposition of hypoc-
risy in supporting the Gush
Emunim squatters at
Kadum.
