the conference's lone official
spokesman, George Sher-
man of the State Depart-
ment, changed his char-
acterization of Egypt's alt-
eration from "clarifica-
tions" in the agreement to
"technical changes." He
emphasized repeatedly that
this characterization came
from Egyptian Prime
Minister Mustafa Khalil.
Egypt's semi-official
newspaper Al Ahram
first referred to the
changes as "amend-
ments" that are "basic"
to the treaty, but later
softened the language to
"technicalities."
in
Meanwhile,
Jerusalem, U.S. Assistant
Secretary of State Harold
Saunders had some success
in modifying the opposition
of local Arab leaders toward
the provisions of the Camp
David accords calling for
autonomy on the West Bank
and Gaza Strip. But in doing
so he incurred the anger of
Israeli officials, including
Premier Begin, for al-
legedly trying to satisfy the
Arabs at Israel's expense.
Saunders left Monday for
Washington after a week-

long visit to the Middle East
during which he met with
King Hussein of Jordan and
with Saudi Arabian officials
in Jidda as well as with Is-
raeli leaders and local Arab
officials.
Interior Minister Yosef
Burg told the National
Religious Party Sunday
that Begin has "harsh
words" with Saunders over
involving the possible re-
storation of East Jerusalem
to Arab sovereignty. Yosef

Ciechanover, director gen-
eral of the Foreign Minis-
try, met with Saunders over
the weekend to express
reservations over the
American position on the
future of the West Bank
that Saunders had repor-
tedly conveyed to the Arabs.
Other officials charged
that Saunders hinted at
solutions to the WeSt
Bank and Gaza Strip that
were at considerable
variance with Israel's

Begin Suggests Transferring
Offices to East Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Prime Minister Menahem
Begin suggested on Wed-
nesday morning that the
Prime Minister's office and
the Foreign • Ministry be
transferred to East
Jerusalem, Israel Radio re-
ported.
The report was confirmed
by informed sources.
Begin was speaking with
various ministers in his
Cabinet during its special
session convened to con-
sider the peace draft with
Egypt. It was also reported.
that the ministers re-
sponded favorably.
The move on the Pre-
mier's part appears to be a

not-so--subtle hint to the
U.S., constituted a clarifica-
tion of Israel's stand on the
future of Jerusalem and
reinforced Israel's stand
that the capital remain
united and under Israeli
sovereignty. The timing of
the leak was an obvious way
of pacifying the Cabinet
ministers hesitant in back-
ing the peace draft.

Many foreign diplomats,
meanwhile, might refuse to
carry out their dutieS at the
ministry's proposed new lo-
cation, just as many refused
to visit then Deputy Foreign
Minister Yigael Allon when
he lived in East Jerusalem.

TEL AVIV — A new
Hebrew-language volume
by, Shmuel Segev, former
Washington correspondent
for Maariv, claims that Is-
rael has consistently mis-
read President Anwar
Sadat of Egypt.
Segev's book, "Sadat: The
Road to Peace," says that
the 1973 Yom Kippur War
could have been averted if
Israel had read Sadat's in-
tentions correctly.
He also stated in his book
that former U.S. President
Richard Nixon urged Israel
to attack Soviet military in-
stallations in Egypt in 1970.
Israeli planes did shoot
down four Russian-manned
jets over the Suez Canal
during that period.
Segev denies that
former U.S. Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger
was wholly responsible
for delaying U.S. arms
shipments to Israel dur-
ing the Yom Kippur War.
Segev said Sadat's re-
fusal to accept a U.S.-
sponsored cease-fire in-

Some Israeli sources
questioned the necessity

region at this time, imply-
ing that it damaged the
current peace-making ef-
forts.
American sources coun-
tered with the charge that

Palestinian attitudes. They
contended that those state-

argued that Washington
could not ignore Israel's
potential negOtiating
