Politicization Marks UN Women's Parley in Denmark

States appealed to the con-
ference to show "a spirit of
moderation and com-
promise" when discussing
resolutions, amendments
and political proposals. The
co-chairman of the Ameri-
can delegation, Sarah Wed-
dington, made no mention
of the issues to which she
referred, but it was clear
that she was appealing for
moderation in what has be-
come the conference's main
political issue — the pro-
posal by the non-aligned
nations to brand Zionism
as one of the major evils of
the world.
The politicization of the
conference, and the parallel
meeting, the open "forum"
held at Copenhagen Uni-
versity, is daily increasing.
At the "forum," which is
attended by semi-private
organizations and indi-
viduals, the atmosphere is
heavily anti-Israel.
At a session organized by
a Danish medical branch of
Amnesty International, two
alleged "victims" of Israeli
"repression" were brought
to "testify" about Israeli
brutality and torture. When

Rabbis Reaffirm Their Support
for Begin's Settlement Policies

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Prominent rabbis within
the Orthodox Jewish com-
munity reaffirmed their
support for Premier
Menahem Begin's policies
regarding settlements at a,
press conference held here
Monday. The same group
sponsored a full-page adver-
tisement in The New York
Times recently urging
Begin to halt the autonomy
talks.
The International Rab-
binic Committee for the
Safety of Israel (IRCSI),
claiming to represent the
community and responding
to recent media coverage of
open opposition to Begin's
policies, hailed Begin as "a
statesman who is motivated
by a sincere desire for peace,
and deplore those who as-
sail his leadership and
undermine his efforts."
Rabbi Sholom Gold, past
president of Young Israel
Rabbis and IRCSI co-
chairman, said that the
committee's foremost con-
cern is the Jews who live in
Israel and stressed that "au-
tonomy is a stepping stone
to the creation of a Palesti-
Alan state, which consti-
tutes a clear danger to the
life and limb of each and
ery Jew in Israel."
Though Gold would not
comment when asked
about territories already
returned by Israel to
Egypt, he did say "that
any further return of ter-
ritories places Israel in
dire jeopardy."
He also reiterated the

need for rabbis on the com-
mittee to publicize a legal
ruling from the Talmud,
later codified by rabbinic
authorities, to protect the
land from conquest by
"strangers." The new and
old legally established set-
tlements in Judea and
Samaria are not obstacles In
the way of peace, but rather
are the frontline of defense
for the state of Israel, he
continued.
The committee proclaims
"Jerusalem -will for all
times remain the indivisi-
ble, eternal capital of the
Jewish people, will never be
divided, nor will the flag of
any other nation fly from its
ramparts," and calls on the
American government to
resist pressures from coun-
tries hostile to Israel when
negotiating sales of mili-
tary equipment which could
be used against it.
World
Meanwhile,
Organization
Zionist
sources report that plans
are in the offing to establish
85 new settlements in the
West Bank within the next
five years.
However, Begin said
that Israel would only
build 10 more settlements
there. He said that was all
that was required. The
Begin government has
already set up 27 settle-
ments in the West Bank
since coming to power in
1977.
In London, Lord Car-
rington, the British Foreign
Secretary, accused Israel of
conducting a "damaging

policy" over the West Bank
and of making peace much
more difficult to achieve.
In his sharpest attack yet
on Israeli policy, Car-
rington rejected the strong
Israeli criticism of the re-
cent European Economic
Community (EEC) initia-
tive which had called for the
Palestine Liberation
Organization to be associ-
ated with peace negotia-
tions.
Denying that this con-
stituted official recogni-
tion of the PLO, Car-
rington told members of
the House of Lords that
he remained convinced
that the proposals by the
nine EEC countries at the
Venice summit - last
month were "balanced
and constructive" and a
basis for a settlement.
Switching to the offen-
sive, he said: "It cannot be
repeated too often that the
continuing expansion of set-
tlements in the occupied
territories makes the
achievement of peace much
more difficult. Our funda-
mental commitment to Is-
rael does not and cannot ex-
tend to her actions as an oc-
cupying power. I continue to
hope that wisdom will pre-
vail over this damaging pol-
icy."

Both Jerusalem and
Washington D.C. were cho-
sen as their nations' capital
because, among other
things, both cities were in
neutral territory.
