the survivors, the group
was searching for a dis-

didn't find it they decided
to go sight-seeing.
They convinced an Israeli
checkpoint to allow them

where they were ambushed.
Several officers and soldiers
at the checkpoint have been

Hebrew U. Prof in Flint
to Discuss Israel Situation

Prof. Shlomo Avineri,
dean of the faculty of social
sciences and professor of
political science at the Heb-
rew University of
Jerusalem, was in Flint re-
cently to discuss the current
Mideast situation.
Speaking at Cong. Beth
Israel in a program -spon-
sored by the Community
Relations Committee of the
Flint Jewish Community
Council, Prof. Avineri said
the wars, refugee problem
and other issues might have
been solved had the Arab
states accepted the com-
promise advanced by the
United Nations in 1947.
He said the Arabs re-
jected the compromise
creating the state of Israel
and went to war. Prof. Av-
ineri said that the Arab re-
fusal to recognize Israel is at
the root of the Mideast con-
flict. •
He called the peace
movements on the part of
Egypt's President Anwar
Sadat the "first rum-
blings of a change of
mind in the Arab world."
Prof. Avineri also de-
scribed the last 10 years as
an "easy life" for Israel be-
cause all plans were
theoretical. But, now, he

said, "we have a plan and
have to make up• our
The major differences
within the Israeli govern-
ment, he said, was the posi-
tion on the West Bank and
Gaza Strip. Premier
Menahem Begin's Likud
Party insists on keeping the
West Bank and Gaza Strip
for security reasons and as a
natural part of Jewish
sovereignty while the Labor
Party would compromise
the West Bank and Gaza
Strip for peace.
The Labor Party would
insist on demilitarization
of the West Bank, which,
along with the Gaza
Strip, would be com-
prised of about 35 per-
cent Arab people.
Prof. Avineri • predicted
that negotiations would be
dragged out.
