17 Nations Sign Terror. Accord

PARIS (JTA) — Seven-
teen of the 19 member-
states of the Council of
Europe signed in Stras-
bourg the European con-
vention an joint mea-
sures against terrorism.
Only Ireland, because
of its own involvement in
northern Ireland, and
Malta, .because of its
pro-Arab line, refused to
sign the convention
which describes as
"common law crimes"
practically all terrorist
attacks.

The French delegate,
Pierre Christian- Tait-
, tinger, signed the ,con-
vention but said France
will ratify it only after the
nine European Economic
Community member
states conclude their own
j oint work on this subject.

New Israel Budget
Meets Opposition

JERUSALEM - (JTA) —
Premier Yitzhak Rabin's
minority government
submitted its $13.5 billion.
budget for fiscal 1977-78
to the Knesset, but ran
into stonewall opposition
from Likud, the National
ligious Party and its
uctant coalition part-
- r, the Independent
Liberals.
Yisrael Kargmann of
the Labor Alignment,
chairman of the Knesset
Finance Committee, said
that even if it passed the
first reading, slated this
week, it . might not
weather the second and
third readings.
In that case, the gov-
ernment would have to
present an interim
budget pending the May
17 elections and leave the
final budget to the next
government.

French Jewish weekly, `
"Tribune Juive," French
President Valery Giscard
d'Estaing explained that
the convention makes ex-
tradition for terrorism
mandatory. He said that
theoretically this would
bind France to extradite to
a potential dictatorship
people accused of terrorist
attacks.
This is the first time in
French history that a
French president has
granted an interview to a
Jewish publication.
In Jerusalem, Justice
Minister Haim Zadok ex-
pressed the belief that
the French release of
Palestinian terrorist Abu
Daoud will result in the
"tightening of the strug-
gle" against terrorism in
many countries.

Israel Shuns
French Envoys

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The visit to Israel by Fr-
ance's Minister of Com-
merce and Economy,
Michel d'Ornano, has
been postponed indefi-
nitely • for political
reasons.
Israel last week turned
down an invitation to at-
tend the inauguration of
the European Parlia-
ment's new building in
Strasbourg.
Israel's Ambassador to
France, Mordechai Gazit,
is still in Israel after
having been called home
two weeks ago "for con-
sultations" following
Daoud's release.
However, Foreign
Minister Yigal Allon is
still expected to meet
French Foreign Minister
Louis de Guiringaud in
Brussels Tuesday when
Israel signs an agree-
ment with the European
Economic Community.
