Meanwhile, Chief of Staff
Gen. Morde hai Gur found
himself in trouble with his
superior, Defense Minister
Ezer Weizman, over an
interview published in
Yediot Akhronot in which
Gur warned that 'Sadat's

As the initial reactions
subsided. diplomatic
observers and the media
began to speculate about the
possible outcome of this
visit. Most Middle East
experts believe that Sadat
decided- to go all the way in
an attempt to end the
Mideast diplomatic logjam.
The Egyptian president
faces grave economic and
social problems at home
and is genuinely interested
in a political solution of the
conflict with Israel. He
decided to go to Jerusalem,
_the experts say, in order to
convince the Israelis and his
fellow that peace is
his true intention.

Weizman was furious that
Our made those -remarks
for publicaiton without
clearing them or consulting
with him in advance. The
interview was conducted
over the weekend when a
Sadat visit was still far
from being an immediate
possibility. Its publication
only hours before Begin
extended his formal
invitation to Sadat was seen
in some quarters as an
attempt to sabotage the
Sadat sent a surprise mes-
sage to the 20th anniversary
symposium of the Zionist
socialist magazine New Out-
look in Tel Aviv Tuesday.
The message, transmitted
via Cyprus, said that recog-
nition of the rights of the
Palestinians for a state of
their own was the only way
to establish a fruitful dia-
logue between Arabs and
Israelis. "Only by a new
outlook on these human
problems can men of good
will find a path to peace and
prevent the horrors of a new
military confrontation,"
Sadat said. His message
was received with applause.
Begin said on two occa-
tions over the 'Weekend that
he was prepared to wel-
come the Egyptian leader.
His remarks were in
response to Sadat's asser-
tion to the Egyptian parlia-
ment last week and to a
group of visiting American
Congressmen that he was
prepared to go to Israel and
address the Knesset if that
would further the cause of
peace in the Middle East:


In a dramatic appeal to
the people of Egypt over
Israeli Radio last Friday,
Begin spoke of the futility of
four wars in 30 eyars and
the mutual benefits of
peace. He concluded:


"It is in the holy Koran in
Surah five that our right to
this land was stated and
sanctified. May I read it to
you, our neighbors, this
eternal Surah: 'Recall,
when Moses said to his
people: 0 my people,
remember the goodness of
Allah towards you when we
appointed prophets among
you. 0 my people, enter the
holy land which Allah had
written down as yours.'

"It is in this spirit of our
common belief in good, in
divine providence, in right
and in justice, in all the
great human values which
we handed down to you by
the Prophet Mohammed
and by our Prophets Moses,
Isaiah. Jeremiah and Eze-
kiel. It is in this human
spirit that I say to you, with
all my heart: Shalom. It
means sulh, and vice-versa,
stilh means shalom."
In Washington, President
Carter said the exchange of
statements by Israeli Pre-
mier Menahem Begin • and
Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat was "a good omen for
the future. - Presidential
News Secretary Jody Pow-
ell quoted the President's
reation following the State
Department's indication
that it was cool to the idea
of a visit by Sadat to Israel.
In a related development,
Powell denied that Sadat's
