Shimon Peres: 'A Time for Decision, in Jewish
Life—on Verge of Peace, in Face of Danger'

The 1977 Israel Bond cam-
paign in Metropolitan
Detroit formally concluded
Sunday evening at the
Detroit - Israel Dinner of
State held at Cong. Shaarey
Zedek.
Guest speaker Shimon
Peres, leader of the Labor
Party and Defense Minister
.in Yitzhak Rabin's govern-
ment, gave the major
address of the evening, and
dinner co-chairman David
Holtzman announced that
more than $2.2 million in
Israel Bonds were sub-
scribed at Sunday's dinner
and an earlier parlor meet-
ing in honor of Peres. .
Peres told the audience
that this was "a time for
decision in Jewish life—on
the verge of peace, in the
face of danger."

He said Anwar Sadat of
Egypt had expressed his
desire to come to Jerusalem
to "explain his version of
peace, and our government
rightfully said it would wel-
come him. But it cannot be
a peace at any price. We
cannot have foreign guaran-
tees—that would detract
from what was created as
an, independent Jewish
state.

"We cannot be guests in
someone else's house, -
Peres said. "We shall pro-
tect our lives with our own
hands, with our own chil-
dren," adding that Israel
has never sought U.S. sol-
diers to defend her.
"We refuse totally and
absolutely to have a Palesti-
nian state in the midst of
our country, armed with the
most terrible weapons,
dependent on Soviet Russia.
With all our love for the
Russians, the farther away
they are the better off we
are," he said.
On the subject of Geneva,
Peres told the audience of
major Bond subscribers,
Palestinians, yes. PLO,
No. We must have a peace

-

with Israel, not a peace
without Israel."
He spoke of Israel's
accomplishments in agricul-
ture and exports in 30 years,
but cautioned that there was
much more to be done. "We
have won wars, but have
not yet won peace," he said,
and lauded the Detroit Jew-
ish community for helping
to make Israel "something
meaningful and true."

Earlier in the day, Peres
answered questions for
more than 30 minutes at a
press conference at his
hotel. He was in Detroit as
part of a 10-day U.S. trip-for
Bonds and the United Jew-
ish Appeal. He said he
would prefer to see more
step-by-step diplomacy and
then conclude peace nego-
tiations at Geneva. "Israel
would compromise a long
way," he added. "I think we
would give up land" in the
Sinai, on the Golan Heights
and on the West Bank.

He believes that a con-
federation between Israel,
Jordan and the West Bank
or between Israel and the
West Bank would be best.
Peres said that Anwar
Sadat's proposal calling for
an American of Palestinian
descent to represent the
Palestinians at Geneva
made him uneasy.
"Israel _would prefer to
deal with the Palestinains
themselves—the West Bank
residents and residents of
Gaza—than deal with repre-
sentatives of the PLO. We
would - rather deal with the
people living in the area."
He added that this was part
of the recent U.S.-Israel
working paper for reconven-
ing the Geneva Conference.
He said the question of
Jerusalem was one of the
reasons why he preferred
the confederation idea.
Peres was asked if Israeli
settlements on the West
Bank would hinder peace
negotiations. He said the

settlements "are taking up
