UN's Debate on Self-Determination Is Postponed;
Israelis Worried About Possible U.S. Shift on PLO

UNITED NATIONS
(JTA) — Acting on the re-
quest of the United States,
Kuwait and the Palestine
Liberation Organization,
the Security Council de-
cided Monday to postpone
until Aug. 23 its debate on
Palestinian rights.
Sources said that the
delay was apparently due to
the fact that the Arabs have
not succeeded in persuading
the U.S. not to veto a
Kuwait-sponsored, PLO-
inspired resolution urging
the Security Council to sup-
port the right of the Palesti-
nian people to "self-
determination."
According to diplomatic

sources, the unusual coop-
eration between the PLO
and the U.S. in requesting
the delay of the Council
meeting is a result of "the
quiet, behind-the-scenes"
contacts between American
officials and the PLO. Dip-
lomats explained that a
U.S. veto in the Security
Council — as Israel vigor-
ously requested — could
have an adverse effect on
the present PLO-American
contacts.
"It therefore can be as-
sumed that the PLO and the
U.S. agreed to postpone the
Council meeting and con-
tinue with the delicate con-
tacts," a diplomat ex-
plained.
A vote on that resolution
had been expected this
week. It emerged from the
recommendations of the
General Assembly's special
committee on the inalien-
able rights of the Palesti-
nian people, a 23-nation
body which Israel does not
recognize.
The committee called for
Israel's withdrawal from all
occupied Arab territories,
the creation of a Palestinian
state and the return of Arab
refugees to the homes they
left in what is now Israel.
The Kuwait resolution
omitted those points in
what was viewed as an at-
tempt to avoid a U.S. veto.
Reports published in Is-
rael last week claimed that
the U.S. was considering
amendment of Security
Council Resolution 242 to
facilitate its acceptance by
the PLO which, in turn,
could lead to recognition of
the terrorist organization
by the U.S. According to the
reports, the resolution
would be amended to refer
to the rights of the "Palesti-
nian people" instead of
"Palestinian refugees."
A spokesman for the U.S.
Mission to the United Na-
tions said, "We are not con-
sidering the amendment of
any resolution." She added,
"Our position in regard to
the PLO has not changed.
We will not recognize nor

talk to the PLO until the
PLO recognizes Resolution
242 and the state of Israel."
Department
State
spokesmen in Washing-
ton repeatedly stressed
the same points this
week. They stated Wed-
nesday that President
Carter would "be willing
to talk with the PLO" if it
recognized Israel's right
to exsist.
Israel's Ambassador to
the UN, Yehuda Blum, who
returned to Israel last week
for consultations, said on
his arrival that there was no
foundation to the Israeli
press reports. Nevertheless,
diplomatic sources at the
UN indicated Friday that
such a change was indeed
being contemplated.

That some change is in
the offing seemed to be
hinted by Assistant Secre-
tary of State for Near East
and South Asian Affairs
Harold Saunders in his ap-
pearance before the Mideast
subcommittee of the House
Foreign Affairs Committee
in Washington Friday. Al-
though he reiterated that
the U.S. is committed not to
negotiate with or recognize
the PLO unless it accepted
Israel's right to exist, Saun-
ders made it clear that the
issue had political ramifica-
tions in addition to the legal
commitment to Israel.
Asked about the possibil-
ity of the U.S. holding in-
formal talks with the PLO,
Saunders replied, "It is a
sensitive political issue and
we are going to be dealing
with that not as a legal issue
but as an issue that must be
resolved in the context of

* * *

Carter Equating

supporting the negotiating
process."
At another point he ob-
served, "We are dealing
here not just with a legal
commitment but with a
political situation. The
political situation is that we
have opened the door and
invited one million Palesti-
nians to be represented in
the negotiations which
are now beginning . . . I
think the important thing
for all of us is that we de-
velop the kind of dialogue
with Palestinians that will
move the negotiating proc-
ess forward by their partici-
pation in the resolution of
the process."
Rep. Lee Hamilton (D-
Ind.) said he felt Saunders'
remarks indicated that the
U.S. is "on the verge of a
concerted effort to include
Palestinians of all political
stripes in the negotiating
process." Saunders said he
agreed with Hamilton's
assessment. He also said
there had been "an evolu-
tion" in some PLO attitudes
toward Israel.
When the JTA raised the
question of the reported
amendment to Resolution

242, a State Department of-
ficial insisted there was no
foundation to such reports.
In Israel, meanwhile,
Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan, just returned from a
visit to Holland, stressed to
reporters that the U.S. was
committed not to recognize
the PLO unless it accepted
Resolution 242. "The U.S. is
bound by its commitments
in the bilateral agreement
with Israel," Dayan said in
what was seen as a direct
reply to Saunders. He
that the U.S. "reaffirmed
after the signing of the
peace treaty with Egypt
(March 26) that it would
continue to abide by its
commitments to refuse to
negotiate with the PLO un-
less that organization ac-
cepted 242."

'UPHOLSTERY

PLO, Civil Rights
Is Resented

A statement by President
Carter, to a New York
Times interviewer, likening
the Palestinians to the civil
rights movement was de-
eply resented in Jewish cir-
cles.
Giving credibility to the
PLO was assailed by the
Anti-Defamation League of
Bnai Brith, Conference of
Presidents of Major Ameri-
can Jewish Organizations
and religious leaders.

British Anxiety
Over Protocols

INCLUDING:

LONDON (JTA) — Brit-
ain's Jewish leaders are ex-
pressing concern at reports
that the "Protocols of the
Elders of Zion," the notori-
ous forgery "exposing" an
alleged world Jewish con-
spiracy, is widely circulat-
ing in Britain, and even in
universities.
The reports have aroused
fears that anti-Semites and
anti-Israeli extremists are
planning an even bigger
campaign on British cam-
puses after the summer va-
cation. The Protocols are
promoted here not only by
an extreme right-wing pub-
lishing company but by stu-
dent "Islamic Societies."
