State Department Unaware
of Plot to Kill Kissinger

WASHINGTON (JTA)
— The State Department,
responding to reports of
an alleged Israeli-based
assassination threat to
Secretary of State Henry
A. Kissinger, denied it
had ever been informed of
any such threat.
Department spokes-
man Robert Funseth de-
clared that the depart-
ment does not normally
get reports from the Se-
cret Service about
threats against the sec-
retary of state and that
the department's policy
was not to comment in
any way about stories on
specific threats.
However, he added,
"We have never been in-
formed of any threats in-
volving Israeli political

parties, or any group
within an Israeli political
party, including specifi-
cally the Likud."

The statement followed
publication of a story by
the New York Daily News
that a "radical splinter"
group in the opposition
Likud, or "perhaps" the
Jewish Defense League,
was involved in the alleged
plot, in which $150,000
purportedly was collected
to engage two European
killers to assassinate Kis-
singer.

The United Zionists
Revisionists and the JDL
both repudiated the as-
sassination report as un-
true and slanderous,
while Likud said the
charges were ridiculous.

Jaabari Rejects
PLO Spokesmen

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Mohammed Ali el,
Jaabari, the former'
mayor of Hebron, de-
clared that the people of
the West Bank, not the
PLO, must have "the first,
word to say" on the future
status of that territory.
The 80 year old sheikh
made his remarks on re-
turning from a visit to
Jordan last Friday. He
was welcomed by
thousands of well-
wishers in Hebron who
beat drums, blew horns
and hailed him as "leader
of the West Bank."
Asked if he had spoken
to any PLO representa-
tives in Amman, he re-
plied, "No, they did not
speak to me and I regret
it."

Nahum Goldmann Says Israel
Should Produce a Peace Plan

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Dr.
Nahum Goldmann, presi-
dent of the World Jewish
Congress, called on Israel
to produce a peace plan of
it own, Goldmann told re-
porters at Ben-Gurion
Airport last Friday prior
to leaving for West Ger-
many to negotiate a final
reparations settlement.
The WJC head said he
was convinced that the
projected meeting be-
tween a delegation of
world Jewish leaders and
President Anwar Sadat of
Egypt would take place.
"We are only waiting for
the dates to be fixed," he
said.

He said the delegation
would be headed by Philip
Klutznick, chairman of
the WJC's Board of Gov-
ernors. He said he would
not participate because
Sadat considered him
"too Zionist" but he did
not rule out a separate
meeting later between
himself and Sadat.
Goldmann said that one
should try to take Sadat
seriously. "Let the Israelis
for once — and they have
not done that as yet—pro-

duce a plan of their own for
a peace proposal and rec-
ognition of the Arabs.
"Let us see what would
be the reaction of the
Arabs to the Israeli plan.
If they reject it, the whole
world would see that the
Arabs are bluffing,"
Goldmann said.
Addressing the inter-
national conference of
Jewish journalists in
Jerusalem last week,
Goldmann reiterated his
belief that, for the first
time in 28 years there is a
real chance for a break-
through for a Middle East
settlement.
He said his optimism
was based on his belief
that most Arab countries
are ready to accept Israel
because they finally
realize there is no way to
destroy her.
But Goldmann criti-
cized the Israeli govern-
ment which, he con-
tended, so far has pre-
sented a "schizophrenic
face" to the world with
every minister proposing
his own personal peace
plan and his own view of
what constitutes secure
borders.
