JERUSALEM (ZINS) —
Likud would suffer a heavy
defeat if new elections were
held today, according to a
Public Opinion Research
Institute poll.
Likud would receive 16.5
percent of the votes, com-
pared to 35 percent in the
May 1977 elections. Labor
would now receive 38.5 per-
cent, compared to 25 per-
cent in 1977.

Assessment of Palestinians Is Changing

By UZI BENZIMAN

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A
change of mood within the
moderate wing of Israeli
public opinion towards the
Palestinians is discernible
at this time. The new atti-
tude shows signs of evolving
into a profound disillusion-
ment with the prospects of
achieving a negotiated solu-
tion between Israelis and
Palestinians. It is expressed
by politicians and colum-
nists known as advocates of
a compromise between the
two peoples.
Several Knesseters, who
until now had consistently
favored great Israeli con-
cessions towards the Pales-
tinians — including the es-
tablishment of a Palesti-
nian state — have been de-
eply disappointed by Pales-
tinian leaders' reluctance to
take part in the recent polit-
ical meeting in Washington
initiated by the Israeli
quarterly, New Outlook.
Well-known "doves" like
MK Yossi Sarid of the Labor
Party, Avraham Melamed
of the National Religious
Party, and Mordechai Wir-
shoubsky of the Democratic
Movement, canceled their
plans to participate in the
meeting; and the few Knes-
set members who did take
part in the symposium re-
turned hoem plainly disap-
pointed.
The reason for their de-
spair was the hostile atti-
tude of Palestinian lead-
ers towards the oppor-
tutnity provided by New
Outlook to meet Israelis
and start discussing with

them the possibilities of
reaching an agreement
betweeen the two
peoples. None of the
front-ranking Palesti-
nian leaders on the West
Bank responded to the
invitation.
Those few Knesset mem-
bers who did attend realized
that Israelis are in fact
arguing among themselves
over the possibility of reach-
ing an accommodation with
the Palestinians. The Pales-
tinians, for their part, take
no role in the dialogue.
As one Israeli dove com-
mented later: "Instead of
waiting for a real Palesti-
nian readiness to change
their attitude towards Is-
rael, we — wrongly — ex-
press our expectation of
such a change and blame
the government for its re-
fusal to agree with the
Palestinians on the
hypothetical possibility of
such a new approach."
The bald fact is that the
Palestine Liberation
Organization establish-
ment has not shown — for
the time being— any sign of
flexibility towards Israel.
None of the top leaders has
expressed readiness to
begin negotiating with Is-
rael. None of them is ready
to amend the "Palestine
Covenant" which calls for
the dismantling of the Is-
raeli State. None of them
has declared publicly
willingness to adopt the UN
Resolution 242 as the basis
for a solution.
Recent commentaries
by Israeli journalists are

even more unequivocal
and can be described as
imbued with a new sense
of suspicion towards the
Palestinians' motives
and goals.

Month-Long Cash Collection
for Bonds Nets $1 Million

A month-long cash collec-
tion campaign by Israel
Bonds has realized $1 mil-
lion in payments on 1979
commitments, announced
David B. Holtzman, metro
Detroit general chairman.
The cash figure repre-
sents more than 600
families who, during the
past 30 days, have re-
sponded to Israel's urgent
call for loan dollars to help
meet the heretofore un-
precedented costs of its cur-
rent economic development
projects, especially the cost
of the Sinai-Negev rede-
ployment program.
Holtzman said he had
received a message from
Israel's ministry of fi-
nance acknowledging
Detroit's Bond program

Drilling Criticized

TEL AVIV (ZINS) —
Prof. Benyamin Shavdran,
an expert on oil exploration,
told Israel Radio recently
that Israel should stop wast-
ing its money on speculative
drilling for oil.
He said the chances of
discovering oil in Israel was
remote and that the funds
should be used to develop
nuclear power.
Prof. Shavdran also
minimized the return of the
Alma oil fields to Egypt be-
cause they only provided Is-
rael with 20 percent of her
needs.

Sadat Proposes
Jerusalem Canal

CAIRO — Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat has
asked Egyptian engineers
to study the feasibility of a
canal to channel the waters
of the Nile River 250 miles
across the Sinai Peninsula
and through Israel's footh-
ills to Jerusalem.
According to the maga-
zine October, Sadat called
the proposal a contribution
to peace and a symbol of
unity between Islam,
Judaism and Christianity.
