DMC Votes Against Joining Likud Coalition, Ideological Reasons Cited

off the current negotiations
with Likud. But the council
authorized the party's secre-
tariate and its Knesset fac-
tion to consider resuming
talks when and if new condi-
tions have emerged.
Simha Ehrlich, Likud's
number two man, said after
learning of the DMC's deci-
sion, that it did not close
the door on negotiations. He
said he would propose that
talks be resumed forthwith.
But Likud leader Menahem
Begin indicated Monday
night that he would present
his government to the Knes-
set next Monday. He quoted
the late Winston Churchill,
who said that in a democ-
racy a majority of one is
sufficient. Begin will con-
trol 63 Knesset seats, a
bare majority.
The vote by the DMC na-
tional council showed that
it stood firmly behind party

leader Yigael Yadin, who
participated in most of the
coalition talks with Likud
over the past two weeks
and had a 90-minute meet-
ing with Begin on Sunday.
Yadin said Monday nioht
that Likud was intransigent
on political issues, it re-
jected all proposals to
bridge the gap between the
DMC's readiness for territo-
rial compromises in ex-
change for peace, and
Likud's refusal to consider
withdrawal from any part
of the West Bank, caused
the breakdown in negotia-
tions.
Yadin said the DMC sup-
ported Jewish settlements
in Judaea and Samaria
when they were justified by
security requirements, but
it could not under any cir-
cumstances accept the
Likud formula allowing Jew-
ish settlement anywhere in
those regions.
Breakdown in the talks
was also caused in part by
Likud's objection to the
DMC's use of the term
"State of Jews" in its guide-
lines on grounds that this
would mean limiting the
area of the state of Israel
to those areas where Jews
are in a majority. It re-
gards the term as another
way of indicating readiness
for territorial compromise.
Likud insists on the term
Jewish State.
DMC MK Amnon Rubins-
tein said his party would
have had absolutely no in-
fluence in a Likud-led coali-
tion under the conditions of-
fered by Begin, and he pre-
dicted that the Likud gov-
ernment would not survive
for long.
The slim Likud majority
will be composed of 45 of
its own Knesset seats, 12 of
the National Religious
Party (NRP) four of the
Agudat Yisrael and one of
the Poale Agudat Yisrael.
In addition, Likud will be
able to count on the seat of
the Moshe Dayan, who de-
fected from the Labor
Party last month after
Begin nominated him for
the post of foreign minister.
Likud apparently has
hopes that the DMC may
join its government at a
later stage and will leave
three 'ministries open in
that event. They are the
Ministry of Transport, Min-
istry of Engergy and Min-
istry of Housing, none of

them key cabinet posts.
Likud has yet to decide
whether to fill them with
temporary ministers or
leave them in the hands of
deputy ministers for the
time being.
Meanwhile, Leon Dulzin
of Likud's Liberal Party
wing announced that in
view of the DMC decision,
he is once more a candi-
date for the post of deputy
premier. Dulzin withdrew
his name last week in order
to leave that office open for
Yadin. Dulzin also expects
to become minister of com-
merce and industry in the
new administration.
In Tel Aviv Labor Party
leader Shimon Peres told
newsmen after a meeting
with Begin last week that
Labor will not join a Likud-
led national unity coalition
government. He said the
party's various bodies
made that decision and
stand by it. Begin said after-
wards that he would contin-
ue to meet with Peres once
a week to discuss political
and defense problems pend-
ing the formation of a new
government.
Meanwhile, Likud leader
Begin has raised the hack- .
les of his prospective coali-
tion partner, the National
Religious Party, and has
elicited no small amount of
grumbling within his own
faction by appointing veter-
ans of the underground
fighting group, LEHI, to
key government and Knes-
set posts. His appointments
are regarded by some of
his own colleagues as arbi-
trary and authoritian.
Begin has defended them
on grounds that he was se-
lecting the best people for
appropriate jobs.
protest
angriest
The
came from the NRP after
Begin announced Monday
that he was naming former
LEHI member Geulah
Cohen as deputy minister of
education and culture. The
Education Ministry had
been assigned to the NRP's
Zevulin Hammer, and the
Religious ?arty was furious
that it hal not been con-
sulted or even informed in
advance of Begin's in-
tentions. Party secretary
Tzvi Bernstein said it was
"inconceivable that such a
decision could be made
without prior consultation
with us." He said this was
a matter on which all par-
ties to the coalition should
have been consulted.
Hammer himself seemed
appalled. "The appointment
of Geulah Cohen was not
coordinated with me. If I de-
cide that I want a deputy
minister I'll chose the per-
sonality I want," he said.
Hammer is believed to
favor Likud MK Avraham
Katz, education committee
chairman in the old Knes-
set.
Cohen is regarded as a
firebrand, and was one of
the most outspoken and vo-
ciferous opposition mem-
bers in the last Knesset.
She served LEHI as an un-
derground radio announcer
during the pre-state period,
was imprisioned by the Brit-
ish and made a spectacular
escape disguised as a Bed-
uin woman.
LEHI, sometimes known

as the Stern Group, was it
anything, more extreme
than the Irgun Zvai Leumi,
which was headed by
Begin. Some of Begin's old
Irgun colleages have corn-
plained that relative new-
comers like Cohen and an-
other LEHI veteran, Yitz-
hak Shamir, were getting
key posts. Shamir was elect-
ed speaker of the ninth
Knesset Monday with unani-
mous Likud support.
announcement
Begin's
Monday night that MK
Hayim Korfu will be deputy
minister of commerce and
industry, irritated Yigal
Hurwitz of Likud's State
list and the appointment
was not finalized.
The only faction that
seems satisfied is the ultra-
Orthodox Agudat Yisrael
which has agreed to a par-
liamentary coalition with
Likud while rejecting cabi-
net posts. Begin disclosed
Monday night that Likud
would relinquish the chair-
manships of the Knesset fi-
nance and welfare com-
mittees and one of its depu-
ty speaker's posts to the
Aguda as a reward for its
support.
This too angered some
members of Likud's Herut
wing, who charged that
Begin was depriving his
own faction of important
jobs. They are also com-
plaining that high cabinet

posts will be filled by Gen.
Ariel Sharon and Gen. Ezer
Weizman, relative new-
corners to Likud ranks.
Begin said that in order to
achieve a Likud govern-
ment, some members of his
party had so subordinate
their own political aspira-
tions.
Meanwhile, the quarrel
between Likud and the
Labor Alignment over seat-
ing arrangements in the
new Knesset was settled
last week in Likud's favor.
Likud had demanded tb^)
its deputies occupy the
side of the chamber, to
side now occupied by the
Labor Alignment which has
governed Israel since its
founding.
Labor declared that the
left side is traditionally oc-
cupied by Socialist factions,
an arrangement that has
prevailed in European par-
liaments since the last cen-
tury.
Likud contended that seat-
ing has nothing to do with
the political orientation of
the party, left or right, and
claimed the left side of the
chamber because Israel's
governing coalitions have
always been seated there.
But knowledgeable observ-
ers believed the nub of the
dispute was the desire of
both parties to face the tele-
vision cameras which cover
the left side of the chamber
from the visitors' gallery.
