Hussein Snubs Anderson

U.S. Presidential candidate
John Anderson dropped
plans to visit Jordan after
King Hussein let it be
known that he would not re-
ceive him. The Republican
Congressman from Illinois
who is running for the
Presidence as an Indepen-
dent, arrived in • Israel
Tuesday for a four-day visit.
Although Israel and
Egypt are the only Middle
East countries on his itiner-
ary, Anderson's aides
sought to include Jordan.
They were rebuffed appar-
ently because of Anderson's
statement in an interview
in the Jerusalem Post that
he would not differentiate
between East and West
Jerusalem and would visit
both parts of the city es-
corted by Mayor Teddy Kol-
lek and Israel government
Tuesday Anderson met
with acting Prem- ier Yigael
Yadin at the Knesset.
Yadin con; lained that the
U.S. had abstained rather
than vetoed the Security
Council resolution of June
30 condemning Israel's ac-
tivities in Jerusalem.
Anderson did not reply
directly to that issue, but
he reiterated the state-
ment he made at Ben-
Gurion Airport that he
favored moving the U.S.
Embassy from Tel Aviv to
Jerusalem as a final act
of the peace process."
In a prepared statement
to reporters at the airport,
`Anderson said-.
"I have said consistently
during the course of my
campaign that it would con-
tinue to be my-position that
until the Palestine Libera-

tion Organization has fully
accepted two very impor-
tant conditions — one is a
total denunciation of the
use of terror as a means of
achieving political gains
and the other is that it rec-
ognize Israel's right to exist
in secure and recognized
borders — there will be no
recognition or any contact
by the American govern-
ment with it."
In Philadelphia, prior to
his Mideast trip, Anderson
told representatives of the
Jewish community that he
was mistaken when in 1961
and 1963 he sought a Con-
stitutional amendment to
declare the United States to
be a "Christian nation," Al
Erlick, editor and David
Gross, news editor, of the
Jewish Exponent reported.
Anderson cited his op-
position to the school
prayer amendment,
which he said former
California Gov. Ronald
Reagan, the likely Re-
publican candidate, sup-
ports, as representative
of his views on church-
state issues.
Anderson, who has spo-
ken critically of Israel's set-
tlement policy in the past,
asserted that no purpose is
served by a noisy media de-
bate about its merits. This
too he would relegate to the
realm of quiet diplomacy.
Turning to the latest re-
quests for U.S. arms by Jor-
dan and Saudi Arabia, An-
derson said, "Flooding the
area with arms is not the
way to peace. To simply give
in to Saudi Arabia and Jor-
dan on arms without exact-
ing a price — their coopera-
tion in the peace effort —
makes no sense."

Vatican Against Changes
in Status of Jerusalem

(JTA) — At the same time
that the United Nations Se-
curity Council was adopting
a resolution denouncing Is-
rael for changing "the
status of the Holy City of
Jerusalem," the Vatican
issued a statement here dec-
laring that any unilateral
act tending to modify the
status of the Holy City
would be very serious."
The statement came in
the form of a letter from the
charge d'affaires of the Vat-
ican's permanent observer
mission to the UN to the
president of the Security
The statement contended
that the Jerusalem ques-
tion cannot be reduced to
mere "free access for all to
the holy places,' " an' argu-
ment often used by Israel
when its control over
Jerusalem is questioned. A
solution to the Jerusalem
question, the statement
said, also required:
• "That the overall char-
acter of Jerusalem as a sac-
red heritage shared by all
three monotheistic reli-
gions be guaranteed by
appropriate measures;
• That the religious free-
dom in all its aspects be
safeguarded for them;
• That the complex of

rights acquired by the var-
ious communities over the
shrines and the centers for
spirituality, study and wel-
fare be protected;
• That the continuance
and development of reli-
gions, educational and so-
cial activity by each com-
munity be ensured;
• That this be actuated
with equality of treatment
for all three religions;
• That this be achieved
through an 'appropriate
juridical safeguard' that
does not derive from the will
of only one of the parties in-
Meanwhile, in Brazil last
week, a delegation repre-
senting that country's
Jewish community ap-
proached Pope John Paul II
with a memorandum asking
for a Vatican pronounce-
ment in favor of an undi-
vided Jerusalem as Israel's
The memorandum also
called on the Vatican to
support secure and recog-
nized borders for Israel.

There is such a difference
between coming out of sor-
row merely thankful for be-
lief, and coming out of sor-
row full of sympathy with,
and trust in, Him who has
released us.
