Redgrave Defends PLO Film

NEW YORK—Vanessa
Redgrave, star of the highly
acclaimed new film
"Julia," but reputed to be a
leading anti-Zionist and sup-
porter of the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization, Satur-
day defended an anti-Israel
documentary she recently
produced in support of the
PLO.
In a London statement the
actress said, "I deplore the
attempts made on the film
Palestinians' and the
7Wauations against my pro-
fessional and political activ-
ities. The film was financed
solely by Vanessa Redgrave
Productions and made by a
highly talented team of
technicians headed by for-
mer BBC director Roy
Battersby.
"I made this film because
I believe the Palestinian
people have been denied the
right to be heard. Their
views become even more
important since world opin-
ion is now turning toward

the establishment of a just
and lasting peace in the
region.
"I have consistently

championed the rights of
the Jewish people. No one
can challenge the stand I
have taken against fascism
and anti-Semitism. I believe
that their rights in Israel
can' only be guaranteed by
the establishment of a dem-
ocratic secular state of
Palestine in which Jews and
Arabs can live and work in
peace together.

"The American public
cherishes its right to infor-
mation and to form its own
opinions. It should not be
abrogated into the. hands of
a minority of fanatical Zion-
ists who want to destroy the
Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization, and lie about its
aims."
The film was described by
Dore Schary, chairman of
the Anti-Defamation
League, as "very dull
fortunately."

Carter Criticized for-Granting
Soviets Voice in M.E. Talks

DALLAS—U.S. Senator
Richard S. Schweiker (R-
Pa.) criticized President
Carter for granting the
Soviet Union an expanded
role in the Middle East
peace negotiations and for
making concessions to the
Arabs which may increase
the likelihood of war.
"By giving the Soviet
Union the opportunity to
recoup many of the losses it
has recently suffered in the
Middle East, the President

-may well be hoping to raise
the prospects for a SALT II
agreement," Schweiker
said.
What he fails to realize,
y judgment, however,
is"that these issues cannot
be linked. the SALT negotia-
tions must proceed on their
own merits. To link them
together -subjects us and
Israel to Russian horse-
trading and even diplomatic
blackmail, depending on
how badly _Carter wants a
SALT II agreement."

Schweiker suggested that
the President, with his deci-
sion to grant the Soviet
Union an expanded role in
the negotiations and his ear-
lier statements on the role
of the Palestine Liberation
Organization and the right
of the Palestinians to a

UN Singles Out

SEN. SCHWEIKER

introducing

UNITED NATIONS
(JTA)—The General
Assembly opened. its debate
Monday on South Africa's
apartheid policy during
which Israel's relations with
Pretoria are to be singled
out in two resolutions.
The resolutions are part
of a series of 14 resolutions
deploring the apartheid pol-
icy and calling for strict
measures to fight them.
Unlike the resolutions of
the Security Council—which
recently adopted a resolu-
tion banning all United
Nations members from sell-
ing arms to South Africa—
General Assembly- resolu-
tions are not legally
binding.

Chaim Herzog, Israel's
Ambassador to the UN, was
scheduled- to address the
Assembly Wednesday.
According to an Israeli dip-
lomat, Herzog will "expose
the hypocrisy' . ' of the UN
which, under Arab pressure,
singles out Israel's relations
with South Africa.

Similar anti-Israeli reso-
lutions were adopted in pre-
vious General Assembly
debates on the question of
South African apartheid.
