Labor Given Jan. 30 Deadline to Settle Territory Concessions

TEL AVIV (JTA)—The
Labor Party, its top lead-
ership seemingly
hopelessly divided over
the future status of the
West Bank, was given
notice by Mapam that it
has until the end of this
month to preserve the
Labor Alignment.
Mapam has been insist-
ing that the Labor Party
amend its platform to
specify a willingness to
negotiate territorial con-
cessions on the West
Bank. It also wants what
it calls "satisfactory an-
swers" on domestic, social
and economic issues.
Mapam Secretary Gen-
eral Meir Talmi proposed
that a decision whether
or not to quit the Labor
Alignment should be held
in abeyance until the
Mapam convention which
opens Jan. 30. The
Mapam leadership
agreed, although a major-
ity of the rank and file fa-
vored splitting with
Labor now

Labor may be willing but
unable to provide Mapam
with a concrete position on
territorial concessions by
Jan. 30. If last week's
meeting of Labor's special
committee for political af-
fairs was any indication,
the party may not even be
able to offer the electorate
a consensus on the crucial
issue of Judaea-Samaria
when it goes to the polls
May 17. The meeting found
Labor's most influential
policy-makers seriously
split on the issue.

Foreign Minister Yigal
Allon said he favored ter-
ritorial concessions, even
in the absence of a final
peace settlement and
that he did not want the
next cabinet to be bound

Peres Will Challenge Rabin
for Party,. Government Posts

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Defense Minister Shimon
Peres formally an-
nounced that he would
challenge Premier Yit-
zhak Rabin for leadership
of the Labor Party and
the office of prime minis-
ter.
Peres, who made his
.long expected n -
nouncement in the course
of a television interview,
received an enthusiastic
verbal pat - on - the - back
from former Foreign
Minister Abba Eban who
has indicated he too in-
tends to declare his can-
didacy for the premier-
ship.
He said he would agree
in principle to serve in
another Rabin Cabinet
and stressed that the
functions of premier and
defense minister should
remain separated.

Eban praised Peres for
conducting himself "on a
high cultural level" and re-
jected claims that an
internal fight for leader-
ship would harm the Labor
Party.

Sources close to Rabin
dismissed Peres' an-
nouncement as "nothing
new" since his intentions
have been well known for
some time.
Meanwhile, a delega-
tion of 30 mayors and
other local authorities in
new development towns
met with Rabin to ex-
press their support for his
continued leadership of
the Labor Party.

They deplored Defense
Minister Shimon Peres'

Israeli Pound
Devalued Again

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The Israeli Pound was
devalued by 1.9 percent
Sunday night and now
stands at IL 8.98-$1.
It was the second
"mini-devaluation" in
less than a month. The
last previous devaluation
took effect Dec. 22, 1976'.
The U.S. dollar is now
worth almost nine
Pounds. It was worth six
Pounds when the policy of
"creeping devaluation"
was instituted in June,
1975.
Under this system, the
Pound may be devalued
up to a maximum of eight
percent in any four-
month period .

challenge to Rabin to head
the party list in the May 17
elections and warned that
an internal struggle could
do serious damage to the
Labor Party and perhaps
ruin it.

Instead of uniting the
party against the grow-
ing forces of the "right-
wing" elements Peres'
challenge will weaken it,
, they said.

grily: "We never left Hus-
sein in a fog. He knew we
were ready for talks and
he presented his plan — a
10 kilometer retreat from
the Jordan plus East
Jerusalem, plus dismantl-
ing the settlements in the
10 kilometer strip. But we
know he will never come
to an agreement before
(President Hafez) Assad
(of Syria) or (President
Anwar) Sadat (of Egypt)
because he is not that
much of a hero," Meir
said. She stressed that
there was a clear promise
to go to the nation when
the time arrived to neg-
tiate territorial conc€,
sions.

Aelia Capitolina was
the name given to the re-
built city of Jerusalem in
135 CE by the Roman em-
peror Hadrian, who built
a sanctuary on the Tem-
ple Mount, and threat-
ened all Jews with death
if they entered the city.
