Observers noted that the
state did not produce De-
fense Minister Ezer Weiz-
man to testify. Weizman
was one of the minority in
the Cabinet who voted
against Alon Moreh.
The land at the Alon
Moreh site was seized last
week "for security pur-
poses." A grout; 'of Gush
settlers rushed to the
scene where, protected
by the army and pro-
vided with earth-moving
equipment, tents and
pre-fabricated huts by
the World Zionist Organ-
ization's settlement de-
partment, they pro-
ceeded to build an access

tions for the settlement.
Apart from the con-
troversy over the settle-
ment's security value, the
Supreme Court appeared to
accept the appellants' com-
plaint that they had not re-
ceived legal notice of the ex-
propriation of their land.
"The proper way to seize
land is to notify the land-
owners before the actual
seizure," Justice Landau
said.
Elon Moreh and the gov-
ernment's settlement policy
was the subject of a furious
Knesset debate last week.
Agriculture Minister Areil
Sharon called opponents "a
fifth column," trying to halt
the march of "true
Zionism."
Sharon was heckled
throughout his speech, in
which he criticized a Druze
TV reporter and Labor
Party leader Shimon Peres.
He heckled his detractors by
saying that while they
argued, "We lay another
meter of pipeline, another
kilometer of road and build
another house."
Some 30,000 persons,
responding to a call by
the Peace Now Move-
ment, masses in Tel Aviv
June 14 to protest the
government's settlement
policy. A cable was read,
signed by 62 prominent
American Jews, warning
that the new settlement
undermined Israel's cre-
dibility in the eyes of the
world.
Among the signatories
were Saul Bellow, winner of
the Nobel Prize for litera-
ture, conductor and corn-
poser Leonard Bernstein
and actor Theodore Bikel.
The Prime Minister's
Office claimed Thursday
that no such cable had been
received.
An American aca-
demican, Prof. Leonard
Fein of Harvard, and

editor of the Jewish maga-
zine, "Moment," who ad-
dressed the rally, ques-
tioned a statement made in
Jerusalem Thursday by
Theodore Mann, chairman
of the Conference of
Presidents of Major Ameri-
can Jewish Organizations,
that the concensus among
American Jews was that the
West Bank settlements
were "legal" and "neces-
sary" for Israel's security.
Mann did not specifically
mention Alon Moreh in that
connection.
Fein declared that there
is no concensus of American
Jewry in support of the set-
tlements. He said there are
many American Jews who
feel that Israel's settlement
policy, as it is being carried
out, can create serious di-
visions.
The cable from the U.S.
expressed anxiety over
the decision to set up yet
another settlement on the
West Bank on the eve of
negotiations with Egypt
and the U.S. on the future
of that territory.
While stating that they
understand that there are
legal and historic factors
which prompt Jewish set-
tlements, the signatories
declared that "Alon Moreh
undermines the credibility
of Israel in the eyes of the
West Bank people and the
nations of the world." They
also said that "A policy that
requires forfeiture of Arab
lands is regarded by us as
unacceptable from a morall
point of view and harms the
democratic character of the
Jewish State."
Riots broke out in Nablus
Monday, after the Military
Governor of the West Bank
prohibited a protest march
by local residents to the site
of Alon Moreh. About 1,000
Arab youths burned tires
and hurled stones at Israeli
soldiers and police in the

Casba district of the town.
Two soldiers and one local
youth were slightly injured.
The crowd was dispersed
with tear gas. An Israeli
army truck was set on fire
by youths who fled when the
soldiers fired into the air.
The violence erupted after
some 1,500 Nablus resi-
dents gathered outside the
Military Governor's resi-
dence to present a petition
protesting Alon Moreh. The
town was quiet by evening
but the air of tension re-
mained.
Meanwhile, Deputy Pre-
mier Yigael Yadin, who re-
turned from a six-day ar-
cheological tour of Egypt
Friday, expressed serious
concern over Begin's asser-
tion the night before that
"there will be many more
Alon Morehs."
Yadin indicated that he
was especially embar-
rassed because, at a
meeting he had with
President Anwar Sadat
Thursday, the issue of
provocative statements
by Israeli leaders was
taken up. Yadin coun-
tered by pointing to the
bitter personal attack on
Begin published in Egyp-
tian newspapers but he
also prothised to try to
influence his colleagues
in the Cabinet to avoid
making statements that
do not help the peace
process.
Mann over the weekend
attacked the statement by
the 62 American Jews.
"The distinguished men
and women who signed the
June 15 communication to
Prime Minister Begin have
unfortunately allowed their
concern over a single
settlement, Alon Moreh — a
concern which I share — to
color their views about all
future settlements on the
West Bank," Mann said.
He said that after his con-
versations with Begin, De-
fense Minister Ezer Weiz-
man, Foreign Minister
Moshe Dayan, Interior
Minister Yosef Burg and
other leaders, "I have ut-
terly no doubt that Israel in-
tends to carry out the letter
and spirit of the Camp
David accords. But if the
West Bank is not to become
a staging ground for PLO
terrorism against Israel —
as Jordan was once and
Lebanon is now —then full
autonomy can be achieved
only in the context of effec-
tive security arrangements
for Israel's protection."
According to Mann,
"The heart of the prob-
lem is to harmonize Is-
rael's desperately needed
security against terror
with the inhabitants'
need for autonomy.
Jewish settlements are
an answer to the first part
of the equation. Great
sensitivity in regard to
their location is an an-

swer to the second. That
such settlements are
legal is not only my view
but the concensus view in
the American Jewish
community; nor is this
view contested by the
signers of the message to
Mr. Begin," Mann said.
On Friday, however, two
American Lab6r Zionist
leaders declared that the
settlement policy of the
"current Israeli govern-
ment" undermines the con-
census of the American
Jewish community on the
settlement issue and urged
the Israeli government "to
be cautious" in undertaking
actions "which make it
more difficult to maintain a
unified American Jewish
community in these dif-
ficult times."
The statement was issued
jointly by Prof: Allen Pol-
lack, president of the Labor
Zionist Alliance and De-
tpiter Frieda Leeman,
president of Pioneer
Women.

Device Permits
Shabat Driving

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Orthodox engineers at the
Institute for Science and
Torah in Gush Etzion claim
to have invented devices
that will allow observant
Jews to drive vehicles in
emergencies on the Sabbath
without violating Halakhic
injunctions.
Rabbi Yisrael Rosen, one
of the inventors, said in an
Army Radio interview that
the new devices have rab-
binical approval.
Religious law permits rid-
ing on the Sabbath in cases
of dire emergency by physi-
cians or security men, but it
does not permit them to
turn their motors and head-
lights on or off because
those actions are not in-
cluded under the dispensa-
tion.
This posed a severe prob-
lem for the strictly obser-
vant who had to leave their
motors running and lights
on until the Sabbath ended.
The new devices, accord-
ing to the rabbi, allow the
religious driver to press a
button which is not linked -
to any electric circuit, but
causes the automatic
switch-off of engine and
lights.
A similar device allows a
pious driver to start his ve-
hicle on the Sabbath with-
out touching the ignition. If
turned on before the Sab-
bath, it feeds a small
amount of fuel to the
engine. The driver only has
to steer and does not have to
use the clutch pedal in ve-
hicles with conventional
transmissions. Another
electronic device operates
windshield wipers without
the intervention of the
driver. •
