Israel Trying to Persuade Gush Emunim
to Postpone Settlement Drive in West Bank

The government is trying to
persuade the Gush Emunim
to postpone their new mass
settlement drive into the
West Bank scheduled to
begin later this month. In-
dications that the Likud re-
gime may be responding to
international political pres-
sure to restrain the militant
Gush appeared when Pre-
mier Menahem Begin ad-
dressed ceremonies mark-
ing the 10th anniversary of
the restoration of the Et-
zion bloc settlements south
of Jerusalem.-
Begin made no mention
of settlement plans for the
West Bank, a subject on
which he has been out-
spoken in the past. He said
that those who support Is-
rael's right to the entire
country have a human-
itarian vision of Arabs and
Jews living side-by-side on

the same land, but thou-
sands of celebrants, who
had expected another tough
statement in support of
their settlement plans for
the Judea and Samaria re-
gions, were . disappointed.
Begin confined his speech
to reminiscences of the
past, dwelling on the re-
building of the Etzion settle-
ments after the Six-Day
War. The Etzion bloc was
captured by Jordanian
forces during Israel's war
for independence in 1948.
Earlier this week, Agricul-
ture Minister Ariel Sharon,
one of the strongest advo-
cates of massive Jewish set-
tlement on the West Bank,
tried to convince members
of the Gush Emunim secre-
tariat to hold off on their
- The Gush leadership an-
nounced at a press confer-
ence last Friday that 12
new settlements would be
planted in the West Bank
during the Sukkot holiday
period beginning Sept. 26.
They said the settlements
would be started with or
without government assist-
ance and services. Sharon,
who urged restraint, said
he spoke in behalf of Begin.
The Gush leaders said
they would meet with Begin
during the next few days
for a "decisive" discussion.
Some ministers reportedly
have said that if the Gush
attempted to settle without
government approval they
would be removed, by force
if necessary.
A new plan for settle-
ments on the West Bank is

The plan, reportedly in
the final stages of prepara-
tion, would increase the
Jewish population around
Jerusalem; establish a net-

west of the Arab population
centers of Nablus, Jenin
and Ramallah and build a
series of roads from the
Mediterranean Sea to the
Jordan River.
According to the proposal
which was revealed by Maa-
riv, there will be three new
Jewish urban centers in the
Jerusalem region, at Givon,
west of the capital, Maaleh
Adumim east of the city,
and- Efrath to the south.
This will become a civilian
defense line for Jerusalem.
In Samaria, an eastern
strip of Jewish settlements
will be built in a region
where few Arabs live to pro-
vide a continuation of Jew-
ish settlements from the
The plan calls for an
east-west road from the sea
to the Jordan River in the
southern Samaria region
along which will be .estab-
fished industrial centers,
army installations and civil-
ian settlements. There will
be two north-south roads
from Meggido to Latrun
and from Afula to Ara, both
of which will pass through
Samaria. There are also
plans for a series of settle-
ments- south of Hebron that
will use the Kiryat Arba set-
tlement as its urban center.

Meanwhile, King Hussein
of Jordan is in Paris for a
two day official visit during
which he will try to enlist
France's and Western Eu-
rope's support for pressure
on Israel to stop estab-
lishing new settlements in
the West Bank.
In Jerusalem, it was re-
ported that Arab foreign
ministers who have been
meeting in Cairo urged the
forthcoming United Nations
General Assembly to take
strong measures against Is-
rael and intend to urge the
world body to condemn Is-
rael's settlement policy in
the occupied territories.
They also have approved
a draft resolution asking
the UN to call on member
states to halt military and
economic aid to Israe4 lirg-
ing the restoration of all
rights of the Palestinian
people including their right
to return, self-determina-
tion and the creation of a
Palestinian state.
In a related development,
Israel has launched an infor-
mation campaign designed
to improve its image in
Western public opinion in
preparation for this
month's foreign ministers
talks in New York, accord-
ing to political observers in

The first move in this
drive, according to the ob-
servers, was the speech by
Foreign MiniSter Moshe
Dayan last Thursday in the
Knesset in which he went
as far as saying that Israel
would "consider" Arab pro-
posals to divide the West
Bank. So far the Israeli offi-
cial view has simply been
that the West Bank would
never be returned to "for-
eign rule."
In his speech, Dapu aid
he would present in New
York a comprehensive Is-
raeli peace plan—a step so
far avoided by both the for-
mer Labor Alignment gov-
ernment and the present
Likud government. Dayan
refrained from stating a def-
inite Israeli position on the
future of the_occupied terri-
tories. He preferred to
speak of other options for a
settlement, not necessarily
territorial options..
Opposition Knesseters
said Dayan's speech was
different only in outward ap-
pearance, but there was no
change in the rigid sub-
stance of the Israeli stand,
which the opposition said
could not be accepted by
the Arab states and the

JTA Earns Praise
of Carter, Begin

The Jewish Telegraphic
Agency received messages
from President Carter in
Washington and from Pre-
mier Menahem Begin in Je-
rusalem praising the JTA
for its role since it was
founded in 1917. Carter, in
his message, stated:
"For .60 years, the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency has
served readers with de-
tailed and accurate news re-
ports on matters of concern
to Jewish communities. In
this 60th anniversary year
of the founding of JTA, I ex-
tend my congratulations to
you for the agency's two
generations of service to
the public. May you contin
ue to serve in the same
high journalistic tradition
for generations to come."
"I extend my warmest
greetings to the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency on its 60th
anniversary. The JTA has
proved to he a living chron-
icle of the Jewish people. It
is a mirror of the destruc-
tion which befell our people
in our generation and
unfolding redemption.
are the decisive Jewish ex-
perience of our time.
"The_JTA is an important
instrument of Jewish educa-
tion serving not only as a
non-partisan avenue of com-
munication between the
communities but also a liv-
ing link between the people
of Israel and Jewry the
World over.

Who is honored? He . who
honors others, as it is said:
For them that honor me I
will honor. and they that
despise me shall be held in
