their peoples to move freely
between the two countries.
Although Sadat reiterated
his oft-repeated call for
complete withdrawal by
Israel from the occupied
Arab territories including
"Arab Jerusalem" and its
recognition of the right of
the Palestinians to establish
their own state, he did not
mention the Palestine Lib-
aeration Organization.
Begin, while affirming
Israel's "eternal undisputed
rights," did not refer to any
areas that Israel would
never give up, not even
East Jerusalem, but empha-
sized Israel's commitment
to free access to the holy
places.

When Sadat arrived at the
Knesset he laid a wreath at
the eternal light memorial
to fallen Jewish soldiers
everywhere. His entry into
the chamber was greeted by
a trumpet fanfare and a
warm standing ovation by
the assembled Knesset
members and guests.
"Today I announce and
declare that we welcome
you, we are ready to accept
you and live with you under
a permanent peace," Sadat
proclaimed from the Knes-
set podium.
Early in his address, the
Egyptian leader stressed
that he did not come to
Jerusalem to negotiate a
separate peace between
Israel and Egypt because a
separate peace would not
lead to permanent peace in
the area. He said he did not
come to achieve an agree-
ment to terminate the state
of war between the two
nations nor does he seek
another disengagement
either in the Sinai, the
Golan Heights, or the West
Bank.
"I came to you today on
solid ground to shape a new
life and to establish peace. I
came here so that we
together can build a durable
peace in the region," Sadat
declared.
He insisted that there can
be no peace without the
Palestinians, that the Pales-
tinian issue was the crux of
the Middle East conflict and
noted pointedly that the
United States, Israel's
greatest friend and ally, the
provider of military, eco-
nomic and moral support to
Israel "has accepted the
fact that Palestinians are
entitled to get their legiti-
mate rights."
Urging Israel's accept-
ance of the right of the
Palestinians to establish
their own state, Sadat
declared that Israel had
nothing to fear from "a

newly born state - which
would need world assistance
and would not be a threat to
anyone.
Sadat declared that for
ending the occupation of
Arab territory and acknowl-
edging the fundamental
rights of the Palestinian
people, Israel would receive
a peace agreement recog-
niiing its secure boundaries
and any international guar-
antees it chooses to accept.
Sadat acknowledged that
there were many in the
Arab world and some in
Israel who looked upon his
trip to Jerusalem with
anger and suspicion. He
said he forgave them. He
referred indirectly to a
charge by Israel's Chief of
Staff, Gen. Mordehai Gur,
that his trip was a cover for
war preparations. He said
that was not the case.
He said that he has been
asked, ever since arriving
in Israel, what he intends to
achieve by his visit. "I
came here without the
intention to achieve some-
thing but to start a new -
road;" Sadat said.
Begin, who followed Sadat
at the podium, had warm
words for Sadat's trip. "The
distance between Cairo and
Jerusalem is almost infinite
but President Sadat has
crossed that distance gra-
ciously," he said. He said
the trip required courage
and "We, the Jewish people,
know how to appreciate
such courage."
Begin stressed, "We do
not believe in might and we
have never put our trust in
might in our relations with
the Arab countries....All of
us here have one hope, one
desire and one ambition—to
bring peace."
He proposed that the first
clause of a peace treaty
should deal with the termi-
nation of all states of war.
"Let our frontiers be open
for free movement. Let
your people come here and
our people go to you. Our
country is open to the
people of Egypt without
conditions," Begin said.
He also reiterated his
invitations to President
Hafez Assad of Syria and
King Hussein of Jordan to
open negotiations for peace
with Israel. Begin said that
he himself was ready to
travel to any Arab capital to
promote good relations and
peace.
Begin's speech was inter-
rupted twice by Communist
MK Meir Wilner. Begin sig-
hed, lapsed into English and
told Sadat, "The Commun-
ist member bete disturbs
me but this is the price I

had to pay to convince him
not to disturb you."
Labor Alignment leader
Shimon Peres, who followed _
Begin to the Knesset ros-
trum, declared that "peace
cannot be achieved without
mutual concessions. We will -
have to concede things dear
to us and the Egyptians will
have to do the same."
The Israeli opposition
leader said that "some sort
of formula will have to be
found to the problem of
Palestinian identity, but not
at the cost of national secu-
rity to Israel and Jordan."
Peres suggested "a kind of
federation between the
_Palestinians and Jorda-
nians." He stressed that "a
momentous opportunity is
here and we must all prac-
tice patience and mutual
trust."
Peres, who was the for-
mer Defense Minister, said
he felt peace settlements
could also be reached with
Jordan and Syria as well as
Egypt. At the outset, Peres
said he was not speaking in
the name of the opposition
but for the united people of
Israel who want peace.

Forest Fires

TEL AVIV (JTA)—A
wave of forest fires of a sus-
picious origin has prompted
an investigation by fire and
police experts. Seven fires,
mainly in the northern
regions of the country in
recent weeks, have
destroyed thousands of
trees. At least in some cases
the fires are believed to
have been set by terrorists.
