cif resolution and said it was
"categorically rejecting it."
At the Cabinet meeting
Sunday, Begin said the
resolution was passed be-
cause the U.S. had
abstained. He described the
resolution and the absten-
tion as "surrender to
blackmail of the oil
monsters." -
Meanwhile, the Foreign
Ministry took issue with the
U.S. State Department for
denying the validity of a

sentence in a statement by
the Cabinet on Sunday that
said, "There are clear
pledges in the U.S. to trans-
fer the American embassy
from the plain (Tel Aviv) to
Jerusalem." The Foreign
Ministry statement re-
ferred to the Democratic
Party platforms of 1976 and
1980.
On Sunday, Begin said
that "the ancient nation
of Israel does not need
the recognition of the Se-
curity Council, or the
endorsement of its mem-
bers, that Jerusalem is
the capital of the Jewish
state. Jerusalem will con-
tinue to be, as it has been
for 3,000 years, the capi-
tal of Israel, one city, in-
divisible, the center of the
life of the Jewish people."

Cabinet sources said that
Begin reported on a tough
discussion between himself
and U.S. Ambassador
Samuel Lewis last Friday
during which the premier
compared the current ap-
peasement of the Arabs to
the European appeasement
of the Nazis in 1939. Begin
reportedly emphasized at
the Cabinet meeting that

the abstention decision had
been taken by President
Carter personally.
The Israeli Foreign
Ministry statement on the
UN vote said: "The unjust
and unilateral resolution of
the UN Security Council on
the subject of Jerusalem
furnishes additional proof
that the UN organization
has been converted into an
instrument in the hands of
Israel's enemies in their
war against her existence
and independence.
"We are especially disap-
pointed that very important
free countries lent their
hand to decisions which
they themselves know have
nothing in common with the
true reality prevailing in
Jerusalem. This resolution
will encourage extremism,
blackmail and incitement to
war in international rela-
tions.
"Israel categorically
rejects the resolution. I
will not undermine the
status of Jerusalem as
the capital of a sovereign
Israel and as a united city
never again to be torn
apart."
The reference to "incite-

ment to war" was plainly di-
rected at the recent call by
Saudi Arabia for a "holy
war" against Israel on the
Jerusalem issue, a call that
has been taken up by a
number of other Arab coun-
tries, most recently Kuwait.
Labor Party leader Shi-
mon Peres condemned the
resolution and said the
United States abstention
was "especially serious" in
view of the fact that it took
this stand in the midst of a
Presidential election.
Leaders of American
Jewish organizations ex-
pressed their disappoint-
ment and disillusionment.
Some noted that while
the resolution stopped
short of calling for an
economic boycott of Is-
rael, it was the first to
embody some form of
punishment against Is-
rael by calling on nations
with embassies in
Jerusalem to remove
them.
Other Jewish leaders said
that the abstention was an
act of cowardice and spot-
lighted the difference be-
tween the U.S. govern-
ment's words and deeds.

former editor of La Opinion

leased from a prison there
last year and expelled from
the country.

The Aspen Institute for

nounced that Timerman
was chosen because "he
exemplifies the same qual-
ities of courage, sensitivity
and perception in the field of
journalism that char-
acterized Arthur D. Morse
throughout his career." The
late Mr. Morse was a jour-

LENOX, Mass. — Con-
ductor Leonard Bernstein
has donated $50,000 to help
refurbish a 19-room
colonial-style mansion on
the grounds of the
Tanglewood Music Center.
The home, which was re-
cently purchased by the
Boston Symphony, was
originally the property of
Serge Koussevitsky, the
late director of the sym-
phony and Bernstein's men-
tor.

The fellowship sup-
ports year-long partici-
pation in seminars on jus: -
tice and human rights
and other activities of the
institute in the U.S.
abroad.
Timerman, who now lives
in Israel and writes a news-
paper column, suffered
three bombings of his
Buenos Aires newspaper
and one of his home.
His newspaper was closed
by the government several
times, and he was finally
imprisoned for 21/2 years
without charge.
