framework that Israel set
forth last January.
In two private and sepa-
rate meetings at a
downtown Washington
hotel, special U.S. Ambas-
sador Sol Linowitz met first
with Egyptian Foreign
Minister Kemal Hassan Ali
and then with Israeli Inter-
ior Minister Yosef Burg.
The three then went to Blair
House, the Presidential
guest quarters opposite the
White House, for three-way
conversations.

Sources
Linowitz- Ali-Burg dis-
cussions will concentrate on
"resumption" of the au-
tonomy talks.
These sources ex-
pressed surprise at the
"surprise" asserted in a
widely-distributed re-
port to U.S. officials that
"on the eve of the formal
resumption of negotia-
tions on Palestinian self-
rule Israel has made a
concession to reduce its
differences with Egypt."
According to this report,
"American intermediaries"
had reported that "the Is-
raelis accepted an Ameri-
can contention that Pales-
tinians in the area should
have a voice in the area in
determining land policy for
the occupied West Bank and
Gaza Strip, including
whether more Jewish set-
tlements will be built
there." This appraisal re-
ferred to the Israeli paper
presented to the State De-
partment two days ago.
When the JTA brought up
this information to Israeli
sources for confirmation,
their reaction was "we are
very happy our position
paper has been received
here positively."

However, the sources
added, "whoever thinks
there was a change in Is-
rael's position which was
flexible and forthcoming is
incorrect. It has been Is-
rael's position since last
January when it was pre-
sented as a model to Egypt
and reaffirmed in the Israeli
paper. This paper reflects in
a nutshell the main points
of our position on the au-
tonomy plan."
"We are wondering
why there is surprise
about this now," sources
said. "This Israeli posi-
tion pointed out to the
American side two days
ago was in full con-
formity of Israel's posi-
tion that it has had for
months."
"We always suggested in
our model for autonomy
that the powers of responsi-
bility now maintained by
military government
should become three-fold.
Eighty -percent of these
powers would be vested in
the newly-elected auton-
omous body; some powers
would be shared by the au-
tonomous body and Israel;
other powers, namely secu-
rity, would be retained by
Israel. The shared powers
would be on matters such as
water and land. None of this
is new."
The sessions recessed
until Nov. 17 in preparation
for the planned summit
meetings.

Anderson Raps
Rightist Groups
in NY Dialogue

NEW YORK (JTA) — In-
dependent Presidential
candidate John Anderson
lashed out Sunday night at
rightwing Christian fun-
damentalists and others
who want their religious
views imposed on the coun-
try.
The United States from
its founding has been based
on a "recognition of a Sup-
reme Being," he told an
overflow crowd at Congre-
gation Bnai Jeshurun in
Manhattan. But, "I find this
vastly different" from the
demands by groups like
Moral Majority which say
the "Scriptures must be the
source of government."
Anderson was responding
to questions from Dr.
William Berkowitz, rabbi of
the congregation, in a spe-
cial session of the
synagogue's annual
Dialogue series, now in its
30th year. Berkowitz said
he hoped President Carter,
the Democratic candidate,
and Republican standard
bearer Ronald Reagan, will
also accept his invitation to
appear.
The Independent candi-
date, who is also a Republi-
can Congressman from Il-
linois, said clergymen had a
right to take political stands
but religious groups should
not support candidates.
He said it was especially
"dangerous in a pluralistic
society" to take positions
and label them as "Chris-
tian" and your opponents as
"non-Christian."

No Friend in the Pope

Editor, The Jewish News:
The statement of Pope
John. Paul II to the effect
that the creation of the state
of Israel was directly re-
sponsible for the exclusion
of the Palestinian people
from their homeland comes
at a time when the UN is
exposed to almost daily
diatribes against the
Jewish people, violent
anti-Semitic explosions are
witnessed in France and
other European countries,
Arab and non-Arab Moslem
nations are beating the
drums of an all-out war
against the Jewish state,
and even in America out-
standing church leaders are
chiming in in this hatefilled
harmony that raises, again,
the ugly spectre of Jewish
genocide.
It is important to recog-
nize the enemy. In this
period of history, the enemy
is making himself perfectly
clear: for this we may be
grateful. As for the Pope, his -
clear anti-Semitism should
remove the blinders from
those who thought here, fi-
nally, we have a sympathe-
tic friend of mankind, a

champion of justice and
right.
The Pope follows a time-
honored position of the
Roman Catholic Church
that the Jews are
blameworthy for all the
evils of the world; indeed,
they should no longer exist!
In the Confraternity Ver-
sion of the Holy Bible, St.
Joseph Edition, issued by
the Catholic Publishing
Company and bearing the
imprimatur of the Ar-
chbishop of New York, in an
introductory section on
Religion of the Old Testa-
ment, the statement is
made that "The history of
Israel came to its sad, tragic
end in A.D. 70, when the
Jewish nation reduced to
one tribe and representing
the last of Jacob's 12 sons
came to an end with the de-
struction of Jerusalem, its
temple and priesthood."
The conclusion is that any
Jews that are left should
long ago- have converted to
Christianity. The residue
are only warmongers and
international trouble-
makers.

Pastor Criticizes Baptist
Leader on 'Jewish Prayers'

Editor, The Jewish News:
The remark of the Rev.
Bailey Smith at the annual
conference of the Religious
Roundtable in Dallas re-
garding prayer and those to
whom God listens concerns
me deeply.
I fully appreciate the
ministry of Dr. Smith and
recognize his faith in Jesus
Christ. Indeed, Jesus did
say that he was the Way,
the Truth and the Life and
that there was no other way
to the Father except
through him, but I would
offer the following com-
ment.
An omniscient and om-
nipotent God is not limited
by a person's ethnic back-
ground when listening to
prayer. The Old Testament
prophet said, "His arm is
not shortened that He can-
not save nor his ear heavy
that he cannot hear."
Encouraging the Hebrew
nation, Jeremiah said, "Call
unto me and I will answer
thee and show thee great
and mighty things which
thou knowest not."
Clearly, it is not the ac-
cident of one's race but
the condition of one's
heart that is the deter-
mining factor in God's
hearing and answering
prayer. The issue is not
the ability of the willing-
ness of God to hear
prayer, but the sincerity
and contriteness of one's
heart.
It is my concern that Gov.
Reagan's beliefs not be
equated with Srilith's

statement. Recently speak-
ing at Liberty Baptist Col-
lege, Gov. Reagan told his
audience that "since both
the Christian and Judaic
religions are based on the
same God — the God of
Moses — I'm quite sure
those prayers are heard."
Gov. Reagan did attend the
Religious Roundtable con-
ference, but to ascribe
Smith's beliefs to Gov. Re-
agan is unbecoming to jour-
nalistic integrity.
Certainly, I reserve the
right to disagree with Rev.
Smith and I respect his
right to disagree with me
but Ronald Reagan's pri-
vate faith and personal be-
liefs are not questioned and
clearly should not be at is-
sue.
