tlefield," Premier Yitzhak
Rabin declared on a radio
interview.
Foreign Minister Yigal
Allon reacted similarly. He
said it was mistaken to
make a distinction between
"moderates" and "extrem-
ists" in the PLO because
the only difference is be-
tween "extremists" and
"super-extremists." The
"extremists" commanded
the majority at the Cairo
meeting he said, adding
that "If these are the resolu-
tions adopted by the extrem-
ists, imagine what they
would have been had the
super-extremists won."
According to Allon, the
Cairo program gives Israel
additional reason to insist
on a solution of the Palesti-
nian problem in the context
of a peace settlement with
Jordan.

The foreign minister said
that PLO chief Yasir Ara-
fat and his deputy, Farouk
Kaddoumi, left no doubt in
their speeches in Cairo that
the destruction of Israel re-
mains the ultimate goal of
the PLO.
The only difference be-
tween their statements and
earlier ones by PLO lead-
ers, Allon and other Israeli
officials noted, was that in
Cairo this time the PLO did
not explicitly call for the de-
struction of Israel. But
there was no change in the
Palestinian Covenant de-
mand for a "secular demo-
cratic state" in all of Pales-
tine, which amounts to the
same thing.
The Cairo program does
not reject-Palestinian partic-
ipation in negotiations but
rejects negotiations within
the framework of Security
Council Resolution 242. It
states that the Palestinians
will negotiate under terms
of the UN General Assem-
bly Resolution 3236 of 1974
which supports their right
to a sovereign state and re-

turn to their former homes
in what is now Israel. It
also calls for continued mili- .
tary and political warfare
against Israel even after a
Palestinian state is estab-
lished on the West Bank.
In Washington, the State
Department said that the
positions taken by the Pales-
tine National Council meet-
ing in Cairo "do not contrib-
ute to a resolution of the
problems" in the Mid.
East.
A written statement read
to reporters by department
spokesman Frederick Z.
Brown, said: "We have
said before that one of the
difficulties in resolving the
Middle East problem is
that the PLO has not accept-
ed Israel's existence and
the Security Council's reso-
lutions on which the Gen-
eva conference negotiations
are based. The decisions of
the Palestine National Con-
gress in Cairo have not al-
tered the situation and
therefore do not contribute
to a resolution of the prob-
lem."

Israeli Speaker Interrupted
by PLO at UN Conference

.

BUENOS AIRES (JTA)—
Israeli Ambassador Moshe
Erel failed in his bid to pre-
vent a PLO representative
from addressing a session
of the United Nations Water
Conference at Mar Del
Plata last Friday. The Is-
raeli envoy's remarks were
interrupted repeatedly by
clapping from Arab and
some African delegates and
calls for order from the 'con-
ference chairman, Luis Jau-
regui of Argentina.
Erel protested the pres-
ence of the PLO whose "de-
clared purpose is to destroy
a UN member state and its
methods include murder."
He said it could contrib-

ute nothing to the "peaceful
gathering" called to discuss
the use and conservation of
the world's water re-
sources. The Arabs and
their allies set up a din
which forced Erel to leave
the podium.
He was followed by the
PLO delegate, Salah Za-
wawi who denounced Zion-
ism as "the most ruthless
form of racial discrimina
tion and human oppres-
sion" and accused Israel of
"oppression, torture and in-
human treatment of those
now languishing in prisons
in occupied territories." Za-
wawi received a standing
ovation.

TEL AVIV (JTA)—De-
fense Minister Shimon
Peres said last week that
statements made at the Pa-
lestine National Council
meeting in Cairo last week
left no doubt that the PLO's
goal is the destruction of
the State of Israel. He ex-
pressed concern over what
he saw as a change of U.S.
attitude toward the PLO,
particularly the failure of
the Administration to op-
pose an invitation to the
PLO to attend a reception
for President Carter at the
United Nations.
Addressing students at
the agricultural school of
the Hebrew University in
Rehovot, Peres said that
whoever supports the idea
of establishing a Palesti-
nian state is supporting the
annihilation of Israel.
He also expressed con-
cern that one of President
Carter's closest aides has
said recently that the Pales-
tinian question is a central
component of the solution
of the Middle East crisis.
Peres did not mention the
aide by name.
Meanwhile, extremist Pa-
lestinian terrorists, who
have found Baghdad, Iraq as
_
• _ _ .

their last safe refuge, an-
nounced last week that they
will go underground rather
than fall in line behind
more moderate terrorist
leaders, and condemned at-
tempts to reach a, peaceful
settlement of the Palesti-
nian question.
In. Cairo, Yassir Arafat
suffered a defeat last
Friday-when his Palestine
Liberation Organization
backed- off a proposal that410
would have given him
sweeping power in any nego-
tiations with Israel.
The PLO instead decided
to keep such powers in the
executive panel, which ob-
servers say is a victory for
the more extreme PLO fac-
tions, who suspect Arafat of
being too soft on Israel.
