Secretary Jody Powell told
reporters at the White
House: "The President's
comment with respect to the
American civil rights
movement and the Palesti-
nian` issue related to a
specific point in the Camp
David accords, namely Sec-
tion A, West Bank and
Gaza, Paragraphs 3 and 4.
"The President made the
point that he felt the right of
return was important to
Palestinians as a matter of
principle, even though
many would not choose to
exercise it, as certain rights
are important to certain
black citizens as a matter of
principle.
"References to the civil
rights movement in the con-
text of the Palestinian issue
underscores the personal
views of the President and
the position of the American
government, in total opposi-
tion to terrorism and vio-
lence. The American civil
rights movement was and
continues to be successful
largely because it is and
continues to be non-violent.

parallels between these two
disparate movements,
either in tactics or in objec-
tives," the institute said ina
letter signed by Bayard
Rustin, president, and
Norman Hill, executive di-
rector. Their letter stated:
"Whereas our civil rights
movement demanded the
rights of the black minority
to participate on an equal
basis within the overall
society, the Palestinian
cause — as represented by
the Palestine Liberation—,
Organization — is not
terested in securing rights
for a minority. Instead, it
openly seeks the destruc-
tion of Israel.
In short, while we in the
civil rights movement
fought for reforms which
would strengthen and pro-
tect the rights of all Ameri-
cans, the PLO supports a
program which denieOthe
_just rights of Israel and its
citizens."

Major black organiza-
tions have assailed
President Carter's state-
ment comparing the Pales-
tinian cause with the civil
rights movement as "in-
appropriate, unfortunate"
and "a disservice to the
entire movement."
"The historical back-
ground of America's civil

and foremost based upon a
solidly non-violent, non-
terriNrist approach," said
Horace W. Morris, execu-
tive director of the New

treaty, the bases must be
completed within three
years. For that reason,
the government-
sponsored bill bans the
right of the Bedouins to
appeal the confiscation
of their land, a process
that could seriously
delay work on the air-
fields. The Bedouins
would be offered corn
pensation, however, and
the right to appeal this
offer if they consider the
offer to be insufficient.
At a press conference,
Justice Minister Shmuel
Tamir said that the public
committee would include a
representative of the gov-
ernment, a retired judge
and a representative of the

Bedouins. He promised the,
Bedouins they could settle
in agricultural settlements,
as they have asked for.
Tamir said the requisi-
tioning of land at Tel
Malhata resulted from the
peace treaty. Israel, he
noted, had to find a re-
placement for the Eitam
and Etzion airfields in Sinai
"otherwise our planes
would have to be stalled."
He added that there is
"therefore a supreme na-
tional need to take the area
needed to build the base."
Tamir argued that the
compensation the govern-
ment is offering the Be-
douins was fair and liberal
and double that offered by
the previous government.

WZO, Jewish Agency Study
Two Cost-Cutting Procedures

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The World Zionist Organ-
ization Executive is about to
invest $60,000 in a com-
puter that will monitor all
telephone calls from WZO
and Jewish Agency head-
quarters in an attempt to
cut down soaring telephone
bills. The Executive be-
lieves the computer will
more than pay for itself
within one year.

months April-June repor-
tedly fell by $19 million
compared to the same
period last year.
The Executive hopes to
save some 20 percent in
WZO expenditures by
cutting down on tele-
phone calls, its car pool
and manpower. In prin-
ciple, it will hire no new
employees unless ap-
proved by a special
committee headed by di
rector general Shmut
Lahis.
Leon Dulzin, chairman of
the WZO and Jewish
Agency Executives, has also
asked the savings commit-
tee, headed by Jewish
Agency Treasurer Akiva
Levinsky, to check the
number of WZO emissaries
overseas and reduce it by
half.
The Jewish Agency now
maintains some 500 emis-
saries abroad at an annual
expense of about $17.5 mil-
lion. This constitutes some
50 percent of the Agency's
operating budget. Each
emissary is estimated to
cost $35,000 a year.
