Begin Defies U.S. and Opposition Over UN 242

(Continued from Page 1)
American adpiinistra-
tion, through Arnbassador
Samuel Lewis, to play down
differences over 242 on the
eve of his meeting with Car-
ter, the premier neverthe-
less heatedly defended his
interpretation of that
document in addressing the
Likud MKs.
"There is an Arab in-
terpretation to the resolu-
tion, there is a French in-
terpretation and there is an
American interpretation
,which the Arabs reject," he
said. "Why shouldn't Israel
have her interpretation?
Has anybody said the Arab
interpretation was an obs-
tacle to peace?" he asked.
He claimed that the Ameri-
cans knew all 'along what
Israel's interpretation Was
but refrained from mention-
ing it until now.
Begin insisted that the

settlements issue was
blown up out of proportion
and vowed never to disman-
tle the Sinai settlements
and to never stop insisting
on Israel's right to protect
them with its own forces. He
alluded to the rift in his
Cabinet over settlement
policy and indicated anger
toward ministers who ques-
tioned his policies.
"I suffer great pains
when friends who went
along with me for years
now attack me but I am
willing to accept the suf-
fering with love. On my
grave one should write
'he acted for an Israeli
peace plan,' " Begin said.
He also referred to
enemies of the govern-
ment who must be
watched. He promised
that when he returns
from Washington he
would "make order in the
Cabinet within two
weeks." All ministers, he
said, will have to abide by
cabinet resolutions.
Earlier this week, De-
fense Minister Ezer Weiz-
man called Begin from New
York and threatened to res-
ign if his orders temporarily
halting land development
work on two Gush Emunim
West Bank settlements
were circumvented.
Weizman, in the U.S. for
talks with defense Depart-
ment officials and President
Carter, had heard reports

Ariel Sharon had approved
resumption of the work de-
spite Weizman's order.
Reports that Finance
Minister Sim,ha-Ehrlich had
also threatened to reign
were denied by a spokes-
man, who added that
Ehrlich was in complete ag-
reement with Weizman on
the settlement issue.
The Gush Emuitim,
meanwhile, declared war
on the government's -set-
tlement policy and vowed
to continue their settle-
ment drive on the West
Bank regardless of the
consequences. Several
hundred Gush followers
demonstrated outside the
Knesset.
They claimed that the
government had betrayed
those who voted it into
power and demanded to
know "Who runs the coun-
try, Begin or Weizman?"
The demonstrators planned
to meet with Likud and Na-
tional Religious Party MKs
to win their support. They
said they would demand
that the MKs visit the army
bases on the West Bank
where Gush groups are en-
camped to see the poor con-
ditions under which the De-
fense Ministry forced them
to live.
At the Knesset Wednes-
day, Begin clashed angrily
with former Foreign Minis-
ter Yigal Allon of the Labor
Alignment. Allon submit-
ted a motion to debate Be-
gin's impending visit to
Washington. It was de-
feated by a vote of 51-31 but
the Labor MK was sharply
critical of the Begin gov-
ernment's interpretation of
Resolution 242. He said it
was "surprising" in view of
Begin's assurances that Is-
rael accepted the resolution.
He said that while 242 was
not a "dream documenGilt
was preferable to the pre-
sent government's interpre-
tations as expressed on the
West Bank.
Begin responded by at-
tacking the so-called "Al-
lon Plan" for the West
Bank, drafted by Allon
after the 1967 Six-Day
War. Begin called it a
"childish" farce, noting

that it was never ac-
cepted by the Arabs of by
the U.S. He also casti-
gated Allon for raising
the issue of 242 just be-
fore his trip to
Washington. Allon re-
sponded that "the gov-
ernment's hard line may
be disastrous for Israel."
He said, "We should not
be interested in govern-
ing 1.1 million Arabs and
the world will never put
up with it."
Meanwhile, the current
phase of shuttle diplomacy
pursued by Atherton has
ended. But an American of-
ficial indicated that Ather-
ton might return to the
Middle East later to
"follow-up on" the Carter-
Begin talks.
