point" and "there will have
to be intensive discussions
down the road". He added
that he was not prepared to
respond to a question on
whether compensation appli-
es to Jews forced to leave
Arab countries. The Presi-
dent spoke only of com-
pensation for Arabs.
In some quarters it was
feared that the White House
allusion to the 1947 and 1948
resolutions may become a
wedge to reopen the entire
question of Palestine's parti-
tion and the issue of Jerusa-
lem. Under the 1948 resolu-
tion, a Palestine Con-
ciliation Commission con-
sisting of France, Turkey
and the U.S. was to present
the General Assembly with
detailed proposals for a
"permanent international
regime for the Jerusalem
area..." The 1947 partition
resolution is considered in-
valid since partition was re-
jected by the Arabs who
subsequently made war on
Israel during which Jordan
seized the West Bank and
East Jerusalem:
Premier Yitzhak Rabin
and Foreign Minister Yigal
Alton expressed fear at Sun-
day's Cabinet meeting that
Carter's statements might
cause the Arabs to harden
their positions.
Rabin, presiding over his
first Cabinet session since
he went on vacation last
month, was apprehensive
lest the remarks by Admin-
istration officials crystalize
into an "overall American
settlement plan" despite
the fact that the Americans
have said repeatedly that
they have no such plan.
Allon informed the Cabi-
net that Israel's Ambassa-
dor in Washington, Simha
Dinitz, met with Secretary
of State Cyrus Vance on Sat-

working because we're the Buick sales leader in this area.

urday to inform him of Is-
rael's disquietude.
(After his meeting with
Vance, Dinitz told reporters
that no UN resolutions re-
quired Israel to give up all
occupied Arab territories,
allow 'creation of a Palesti-
nian homeland or - agree to
compensate Arab refugees.
In connection with the lat-
ter, he said, "Anytime com-
pensation is going to be dis-
cussed, we have valid
claims for hundreds of thou-
sands of Jewish refugees
for compensation, - a refer-
ence to Jews forced to
leave Arab countries after
Israel was formed.
He said, "I emphasized to
the Secretary that Israel be-
lieves UN Security Council
resolutions 242 and 338 con-
tinue to be the only basis
for negotiations. None of
those two resolutions call
for an Israeli withdrawal to
1967 lines. None of them
call for a Palestinian home-
land. None of them call for
compensation." Dinitz said
"We are not arguing with
the President here, we are
stating our position and we
are happy to learn that is
the United States position
also.")
(President Carter was
quoted in a U.S. News and
World Report interview yes-
terday as saying "Our pre-
sumption is that the govern-
ment of Israel will continue
to join us and the Arab
countries in seeking a per-
manent solution in the
Middle East...based on the
United Nations resolutions
that have been espoused
time and again by the na-
tions involved. If Israel
should disavow those com-
mitments, which have been
the basis for the hopes for
peace for years, then that
would be a very profound
change and I think the con-
sequences of it can't be ac-
curately predicted.)
According to an Algerian
News Agency report, Car-
ter said in a letter to Presi-
dent Houari Boumendienne
of Algeria, "To let pass the
favorable opportunity which
is available now to reach
an agreement could mean a
disaster for the Middle
East and perhaps also for
the international political
and economic order."
The Algerian News
Agency also quoted Carter
as saying, "Our policy will
not be affected by changes
of leadership in any country
of the Middle East."
Carter has stressed the
latter point since Israel's
elections on May 17 re-
sulted in an upset victory
for Likud over the Labor
Party.
His remarks that are se-
riously troubling Israelis
came after Likud leader
Menahem Begin's post-
election statements that the
West Bank is an integral
part of Israel by historic
right and therefore must be
viewed as "liberated terri-
tory" rather than occupied
land or land subject to anne-
xation.
Rabbi Alexander Schind-
ler, chairman of the Presi-
dents Conference of Major
American Jewish Organiza-
tions, said Carter's state-

ments are an escalation.
Schindler said the Admin-
istration began with a call
for honest negotiations and
for a desire to reach peace
among all the parties which
he interpreted as a normali-
zation of relations between
Israel and its neighbors, in-
cluding trade and tourism.
Then, Schindler said, this
escalated to a broad outline
of a plan described as a con-
ceptual framework which
suggested perimeters with-
in which the parties con-
cerned could negotiate.
But then came state-
ments based on certain pre-
sumptions which constitute
U.S. policy based on the
fact that the U.S. joined cer-
tain resolutions and these
were topped when a White
House spokesman expanded
the President's references
to Security Council resolu-
tions by adding General As-
sembly resolutions of 1947
and 1948, Schindler said. He
questioned how, under the
circumstances, it was still
possible to regard the U.S.
as an honest broker without
a plan in hand to be im-
posed on the parties.
In Israel, Peres was se-
verely critical of the politi-
cal methods of Likud which
defeated Labor in the May
17 elections. Asserting that
he did not want to be identi-
fied with personal criticism
of Likud leader Menahem
Begin that has appeared in
overseas news media re-
cently, Peres contrasted the
diplomatic methods of the
labor government with
those espoused by Likud.
He said the "two con-
ceptions" were evident as
early as 1947 when Begin op-
posed the United Nations.
General Assembly resolu-
tion to partition Palestine,
the resolution that gave in-
ternational sanction to Is-
rael's creation. The debate
between Labor and Likud,
he said, is between vision
and realism. It was the real-
ism of the Labor Alignment
that brought Israel some of
her greatest achievements,
Peres declared. And it is
that road that Israel should
continue to follow "no mat-
ter how many mandates the
Labor Party had," he said.
Peres spoke sardonically
of Begin's post-election
statements on the West
Bank and other matters as
examples of the gap be-
tween a realist and a vision-
ary. "One can change the fi-
nance minister but one can-
not change the price of oil
in the world," he said.
"One can make heart ren-

ding speeches in Kaddum
(the illegal Gush Emunim
settlement in Samaraia
where Begin spoke after
the elections promising addi-
tional Jewish settlements in
the region) but there are
still American interests.
And I am sure they will not
be looked after according to
the Books of Jeremiah and
Isaiah."

The latter was a refer-
ence to Begin's remark that
he would convince Presi-
dent Carter of Israel's right
to the West Bank by virtue
of the Bible.
