Navon Proposes 'Peace Headquarters'
During His Visit With Sadat in Cairo

(JTA)
CAIRO
President Yitzhak Navon of
Israel proposed Wednesday
that Israel and Egypt estab-
lish a "supreme headquar-
ters for peace" to conduct a
continuing dialogue and
study of the various aspects
of the peace now existing
between them, how to
enhance and deepen it and
fulfil the expectations of the
people of both countries.
Navon offered his ideas in
an address to the Council of
the National Democratic
Party, the ruling party of
Egypt, consisting of some 60
of Egypt's top political ,fig-
ures headed by former Pre-
mier Mustapha Khalil.
Speaking in Arabic, in
which he is fluent, Navon
also touched on political is-
sues relating to the West
Bank-Gaza autonomy
negotiations and the Pales-
tinian problem.
"These are subjects of
historic, religious, emo-
tional and security sig-
nificance," he said.
"There are serious dif-
ferences of opinion be-
tween us and it is sense-
less to underestimate
them. If Egypt and Israel
wished to sweep them
under the rug, the
negotiations could have
been concluded long ago,
but the deliberations are
being conducted in the
desire to confront the
problems and try to ar-
rive at reasonable solu-
tions and this calls for
great patience," he said.
Navon's hour-long speech
was interrupted by
applause only once — when
he mentioned President
Anwar Sadat, but his ad-
dress appears to have been
well received by his audi-
ence of government minis-
ters, party leaders and the
heads of various gov-
ernmental. departmerns‘,

Although he stressed that
it was not within his compe-
tence to negotiate on au-
tonomy or any other subject
during his visit to Egypt, he
mentioned the Palestine is-
sue.
"We know of its existence,
appreciate its importance
and want its solution," he
said. "Unfortunately, the

Arabs of Palestine and the
government of Jordan have
refused to sit at the
negotiating table. In their
absence, it is Egypt that as-
sumed the burden of
negotiating the details of
autonomy."
Navon said he came to
Egypt to bring to the
Egyptian people a true
greeting from the Israeli
people and to express its
determination to adhere
to the path of peace in
spite of all difficulties.
He said his proposed
"supreme headquarters for
peace" would be composed of
people of great moral and
spiritual strength of both
countries, including
teachers, psychologists,
sociologists and statesmen.
Navon had his second
meeting with President
Anwar Sadat Wednesday at
the Egyptian leader's birth-
place, the Nile delta village
of Mit Abul Kum. It was a
follow-up of their two-hour
meeting at the Abdeen
Palace in Cairo Monday
night.
Sadat said he and Navon
had agreed that a second
formal meeting was needed
to conclude discussion on
several subjects that re-
main to be resolved.

Both presidents appar-
ently needed time for
consultations after their
Monday night get-
together. Navon told re-
porters that he has been
in contact with Premier
Menahem Begin and re-
layed to him the contents
of his initial talk with
Sadat.
He also stressed tha the
did not come to Egypt to
negotiate in details over
outstanding issues, but to
air and review the situation
and consider ways to pro-
mote the continuing negoti-
ations.
At an impromptu press
conference after the Mon-
day meeting, Sadat said the
question of "full autonomy"
had been raised for the West
Bank and Gaza, emphasiz-
ing the world "full," and the
issue of Jerusalem which he
sees as related to it.
"Yes, we have raised the
question of Jerusalem," the

Egyptian leader said. "After
all, this is part of the gen-
eral autonomy issues."
Navon said at his own
press conference later
that the Egyptian
president is consistent in
his approach to the issues
and stands by the ad-
dress he made to the
Knesset in his historic
visit to Jerusalem in No-
vember 1977.
Although Navon, who is
Israel's chief of state, is not
a political figure, Sadat ap-
pears to be seeking in him a
supporter at the top level of
Israel's leadership to re-
place former Defense Minis-
ter Ezer Weizman. Sadat
regarded Weizman not only
as a personal friend but as a
man who could understand
the Egyptian point of view
and on occasion support
Cairo's positions against
the official position of the
Begin government.
Significantly, the Egyp-
tian media, including its
French and English as well
as Arabic publications,
have given extensive cover-
age to the Navon visit.
Navon and Sadat have
also discussed bilateral is-
sues relating to the nor-
malization process between
Egypt and Israel and, in
that area, they appear to be
in substantial agreement
that normalization should
proceed at a faster pace and
on a more substantive level
than has been the case until
nciw._
In Jerusalem, the Is-
rael cabinet endorsed a
series of understandings
reached between Sadat
and Nvaon to speed up
the normalization proc-
ess between Egypt and
Israel.

Navon, cabled Begin on
his meeting with Sadat and
asked for government ap-
proval of the two presidents'
mutual declaration of in-
tent and desire to push
ahead with various facets of
normalization.
Sources in Jerusalem said
understandings
the
tourism,
encompassed
commerce, culture and a -
ricultural cooperatic _
Sadat, among other things
apparently agreed to abro-
gate earlier announced
Egyptian plans to apply
more stringent entry re-
quirements for visitors,
especially foreign pilgrims
seeking to fly from Eilat
into Sinai and visit the
Santa Katherina Monas-
tery.
The two presidents also
rexolved to reactivate ag-
ricultural development
projects inside Egypt which
have been discussed before
but which have not ad-
vanced much beyond the
planning stages.

Alvin Kushner, executive
director of the Jewish
Community Council, issued
a warning this week about
Proposal D on next week's
election ballot — the Tisch
tax cut proposal.
Kushner said analyses
done by the League of
Women Voters, United
Community Services and
the Michigan League for

Human Services show that
Proposal D would have a se-
vere impact on health alai
social services.
Voluntary agencies
which are partially
funded through "pur-
chase of services" con-
tracts would be servely
hurt and property owned
by non-profit groups and
municipalities might be
subject to tax if Tisch is
adopted.
Kushner added that the
Jewish Family Service
would be affected by cuts
state general assistan
programs, the Jewish Home
for Aged would receive re-
duced Medicaid payments,
and Jewish Vocational
Service would receive re-
duced funding for its pro-
grams for the mentally re-
tarded.

Sources close to Begin
said all the under-
standings were in fact
reiterations of past
understandings. "We
hope this time they will
be implemented," these
sources observed.
But, at the same time, the
sources flatly dismissed
press speculation that the
premier was peeved or
otherwise offended at Na-
von's involvement in such
matters. On the contrary,
the sources said, Begin- con-
tinued to regard Navon's
visit to Egypt as a marked
success and relations be-
tween the premier's office
and the president's were
"excellent."

Journal Apology

LONDON — The British
journal, "Jewish Quar-
terly," has published a
lengthy retraction and
apology to Marcus
Shloimovitz for a libelous
condemnation of his activi-
ties to convince dictionary
publishers to change de-
rogatory definitions of the
word "Jew."
