New Party Fights
Land Concessions

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Prof.
Yuval Ne'eman, former
president of Tel Aviv Uni-
versity, announced he is
forming a new political
party to fight against any
territorial concessions by
Ne'eman, a physicist who
returned last week to Israel
after a year's sabbatical,
said he would seek to unite
all forces in Israel's existing
parties opposed to the
Egyptian-Israeli peace
agreement into a new party
to run in the next Knesset
Calling the peace agree-
ment "the Purim disaster of
1979," he said it was more
serious than the "disaster"
of the 1973 Yom Kippur
War. He called on "all those
with eyes in their heads and
uncowed spirits" to join his
movement which "seeks to
save Israel and Zionism."
