THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Begin Was Firm on Major Issues, Soft on Minor Points

(Continued from Page 1)
through that had been
achieved. They, like the rest
of us, were only apprised of
it hours later, by President
Carter's announcement on
the tarmac of Cairo Airport.
They did not know that
the Premier -undertook to
the President to present to
the Cabinet an American
guarantee-pledge in place of
the Israeli demand for di-
rect and regular oil supplies
from Egypt. Only the night
before this oil _demand had
een regarded in the
abinet as a sine qua non
for the treaty because it ex-
pressed, in the minds of the
Cabinet, Egypt's readiness
or reluctance to engage in
normal trade relations with
Israel.
The Cabin.edid not know
that, after months of rejec-
tion, Begin now signalled

his acceptance of the Egyp-
tian demand that Israel va-
cate El Arish within two or
three months, and pre-
sented a detailed timetable
for Israel's phased with-
drawal from the rest of the
"interim withdrawal" area

El Arish line) over the
nine-month period stipu-

Post-Treaty

Aid Topic of
Ehrlich Visit

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Finance Minister Simha
Ehrlich will go to Washing-
ton immediately after the
signing of the peace treaty,
to discuss with the Ameri-
cans U.S. economic aid in-
volved in the implementa-
tion of the 'treaty, it was
learned in Jerusalem Wed-
nesday.
Whereas originally Israel
demanded some $3.3 billion
for that purpose, the talk in
Jerusalem's economic cir-
cles is now of $4 billion. It is
understood that this is the
sum which was 'brought up
in the talks with President
Jimmy Carter.
So far the treasury does
not intend to revise the
budget, but if expenses
on the redeployment ex-
ceed IL 8 billion in
the first year after the
peace agreement, it is be-
lieved here that changes
in the budget will be
necessary, as well as new
economic steps.
The Ministry of Com-
merce and Industry has al-
ready set up a special team
to examine the influence of
peace on the economy.

lated under Camp David. In
return for this, President
Carter indicated, Egypt
would be prepared to restore
its agreement to exchange
ambassadors with Isi-ael
during the 10th month.
The Cabinet also did
not know at that time
how Begin was refusing
to give ground, despite
the massive pressure
inherent in the cliffhang-
ing circumstances of the
Presidential mission, on
the Egyptian demand for
a military "liaison office"
in Gaza. This, he told Car-
ter, was not an issue on
which he could concede
— no matter what the
consequences. It remains
to be seen what precisely
the U.S. President has
proposed as a _corn-

First Lady Plants
a Tree in Israel

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
U.S. First Lady Rosalynn
Carter took time out during
her visit to Israel to plant a
cypress sapling on the out-
skirts of Jerusalem. The
First Lady said: "Let us
hope that this tree will
bring us peace."
From the brief ceremony
she went on to visit Mevas-
seret Zion absorption cen-
ter, bear Jerusalem, where
she spoke to recent immig-
rants from the U.S. and
other countries.
Another highlight of Mrs.
Carter's schedule was a
visit to the Bnai 'Brith
Women's Home for (dis-
turbed) Children in
Jerusalem's Bayit Vegan
Quarter. Accompanied • by
Mrs. Ofira Navon, Mrs.
Carter listened and
watched as the severely
handicapped children put
on a song and dance show
especially prepared for her
visit.
Mrs. Carter devotes much
time in the U.S. to the cause
of emotionally disturbed
children.

promise on this key ques-
tion.
While appreciating and
praising Menahem Begin's
exhibition of historic lead-
ership qualities at a critical
moment, many observers
will now ask themselves-
whether the same leader-
ship could not have been
shown months ago — back
in November, when the
peace talks first got bogged
down in what, after all,
were largely subsidiary is-
sues.
When the triumph and
euphoria subside, com-
parative studies will inevit-
ably be made between the
terms that were available
then and those that have
been agreed upon now. On
the face of it, the argument
could be made that the dif-
ference between the No-
vember package and the
March package does not jus-
tify all the tension and
brinkmanship of the inter-
vening months.
But equally it could be
contended that "Israel's
"haggling" produced impor-
tant Egyptian concessions,

especially on Article Six
which the Israeli govern-
ment felt was "the heart of
the treaty."
