sponsored by the Israeli

opened with a reported reg-
istered attendance of some
600 persons from a half
dozen countries, including a
representative of the Arab
population of the West
Bank and Gaza Strip.
That spokesperson, the
poet and feminist,
Raymonda Tawil, came to
explain why Arabs in those
territories who were invited
to the symposium had de-
clined to attend.
She said that the reasons
included "uncertainty and
confusion generated by liv-
ing under the occupation";
the denial of exit permits for
the mayors of Nablus and
Gaza to attend a Palesti-

nian Arab conference in
Washington in September,
and "rumors" that they as
well as others were to be re-
fused exit permits and that
the State Department had
"rebuffed" visas to the U.S.
"for some PLO Palestinians
living abroad."
In addition, she said
"most mayors thought"
that their attendance at
the symposium would be
interpreted as approval
of the Camp David
agreements.
Tawil, a leader of the ac-
tivists, said that she favored
a two-stage solution of the
Israeli-Palestinian Arab is-
sue. She said that Israel
would have to withdraw to
its pre-1967 lines and the
Palestinian Arabs would
take over the territory, in-
cluding East Jerusalem and
Mt. Scopus. She said that
"all of us" (Palestinian
Arabs) oppose the Camp
David accords.
Tawil, who was wearing a
gold pendant with the word
"Palestine," read a prepared
statement in which she said
that "we Palestinians fully
support every effort to bring
a just and lasting peace with
Israel on the basis of mutual
recognition of national
rights and which would en-
able the Palestinian rights
to self-determination and
independence to be fulfil-
led."
Saying "we whole-
heartedly support the peace
movement in Israel and ex-
tend to it our hand in friend-
ship," Tawil sketched "a
brief outline of a transtion
program of constructive Is-
raeli action which would
halp in breaking the long-
standing hostility between
Israelis and Palestinians."
"Such Israeli initia-
tives should include," she
said, "a moratorium on
all Israeli settlements
occupied by Israel be-
ginning in June 1967 and
a reversal of land pur-
chase policy in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip."
She also called for the
"right of Palestinians in the
West Bank and Gaza for un-
restricted internal dialogue
and debate on the future of
the West Bank and Gaza
and its relationship to its

NEW YORK — Even at
the risk of an Arab oil
boycott, most Americans
feel that the United States
should give its strongest
support to Israel, or at the
very least believe that both
Arabs and Jews should be
treated equally, according
to a recent study conducted
by the Gallup Organization
for the American Jewish
Committee.
Thirty-eight percent of
those polled favored
heaviest backing for Israel,
18 percent thought that
Jews and Arabs should be
treated equally, 25 percent
of those polled said the U.S.
should pay more attention
to Arabs and 19 percent
were undecided.

neighbors" and the "right of
the Palestinians to choose
their own representatives."
Other Israeli initiatives,
Tawil said, would include
infrastructures and permit
Palestinian expatriates "to
return and participate as

catalysts in the process."
Others attending the con-
ference were two journalists
representing the East
Jerusalem Arabic news-
paper, El Fajr, about six Is-
raeli Arabs and some 20
Palestinian Arabs from out-

side the region; and from
the U.S., Israel, England,
France, West Germany and
Italy. Lord Caradon, the
British reprqsentative to
the UN when Security
Council Resolution 242 was
drafted, chaired the session.
