NEW YORK (JTA) —
Mayor Teddy Kollek of
Jerusalem proposed that be-
fore a final agreement on
the status of Jerusalem is
reached, Israel make a
statement that it is not
going to use Arab-owned
land for Jewish settlers in
Jerusalem and its environs.
Addressing a press
luncheon sponsored by the
American Jewish Commit-
tee at its headquarters, Kol-
lek said there is enough
land controlled by Israel to
settle some 250,000 people
in the next 15 years so that
the present population ratio
in the city is maintained. It
is presently 72 percent
Jewish, 22 percent Moslem
and six percent Christian.
Kollek also suggested
that Israel "formalize
and legalize" the actions
it has taken so far in
Jerusalem on such mat-
ters as the education of
the Arab population and
the question of their citi-
zenship. Arab residents
of East Jerusalem may

opt for either Israeli or
Jordanian citizenship.
"I believe that we will be
able to solve the problem of
Jerusalem," Kollek said,
but reaching a final agree-
ment on its status will be a
matter of years. "We need a
lot of time for it."
He said that in his opin-
ion, the issue of Jerusalem
should be the last item in
negotiations toward a peace
settlement between Israel
and its Arab neighbors. He
said the Arab citizens of
Jerusalem are afraid to
negotiate openly with the
Israeli authorities regard-
ing their status and a solu-
tion of the city's problems
because of threats by the
Palestine Liberation
Organization. But there
have been contacts on an
unofficial level whereby Is-
rael learns about the prob-
lems of the Arabs in
Jerusalem, Kollek said.

The mayor was sharply
critical of a recent UNESCO

UN Groups Pressuring U.S.
to Change Copenhagen Vote

NEW YORK (JTA) —
There is increasing pres-
sure on the United States,
in an upcoMing UN General
Assembly session, to re-
verse its rejection of the
"Program of Action"
adopted at the world confer-
ence of the United Nations
Decade for Women in
Copenhagen this summer,
the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency has learned.
A campaign is being
mounted through regional
meetings where the
. Copenhagen vote is being
discussed by local chapters
of the United Nations Asso-
ciation of the USA (UNA)
and by various women's
groups. The women's groups
were not immediately iden-
tified.

resolution condemning Is-
rael for its archeological ex-
cavations in Jerusalem.
"We are revealing the (an-
cient) city and restoring it,"
he said. He stressed that the
excavations unearth relics
of many cultures and faiths
at various periods and all
are treated with equal care
and respect by the Israeli
authorities.
Kollek said that a Vati-

can statement, issued
June 30, warning Israel
not to change the status
of Jerusalem, was "dis-
turbing." He said he did
not think the Vatican still
wants the internationali-
zation of the city but it
would like to have a
greater role with respect
to the Christian commu-
nity there.
In that connection, Kol-
lek observed that while the
Vatican represents the
Roman Catholic church,
there are 34 different Chris-
tian communities in
Jerusalem, the strongest
being the Greek and Arme-
nian churches.
Asked what he thought
were the prospects of a
Palestinian state being es-
tablished on the West Bank,
Kollek said that in his opin-
ion the Arabs themselves
"will prevent a Palestinian
state" because many Arab
countries, especilly Jordan,
view such a state as a grave
threat to themselves.

meeting a resolution was
passed calling for the U.S. to
reverse its vote, with re-
strictions, and express its
solidarity with women
around the world, the JTA
was told. On Tuesday,
UNA's New York City
chapter scheduled a discus-
sion on Copenhagen, fol-
lowed by a meeting at the
United States Mission with
Ambassador Donald
McHenry and other U.S.
Mission personnel to dis-
cuss strategy when the
World Conference for
Women's report comes up
before the UN General As-
sembly.
This weekend, the UNA
New Haven Chapter is
sponsoring a meeting at
Yale Law School to inter-
pret the results of the
Copenhagen Conference. It
is anticipated that pro-Arab
forces wish to convey the
argument that by the U.S.
support of Israel the United
States is selling out the
women's rights movement
around the world.
The Program of Action
adopted at Copenhagen is
currently in a UN commit-
tee and may not reach a vote
in the UN General Assem-
bly until after, the U.S.
Presidential election. The
Program of Action is not
valid until it is adopted by
the Assembly.
Despite the many positive
aspects of the program,
and its concern for develop-
ing valuable assistance
programs for women inter-
nationally, the U.S. along
with Canada, Australia and
Israel, felt compelled to vote
against it in Copenhagen
for its equation of Zionism
with racism and its
legitimization of the PLO.
The program calls for the
eradication of the "evils" of
Zionism, racism, im-
neo-
and
perialism
colonialism, and for eco-
nomic assistance to Palesti-

nian women inside and out-
side occupied territories in
cooperation and consulta-
tion with the PLO.
In a letter sent to
President Carter, Secretary
of State Edmund Muskie
and other officials, the
president of the National
Council of Jewish Women,
Shirley Leviton, urged that
the United States remain
firm in its opposition to the
Program of Action as it was
adopted in Copenhagen.
She further urged that
the U.S. take the offensive
in demonstrating its con-
tinued commitment to the
achievement of universal
women's rights as long as
this is not done at the ex-
pense of the security of Is-
rael or the interests of the
U.S.
Mrs. Leviton stated, "It is
those governments which
are either indifferent to or
oppress women in their own
countries that are responsi-
ble for distorting the Pro-
gram of Action adopted at
Copenhagen."

Armies, though always
the supporters and tools of
absolute power for the time
being, are always its de-
stroyers too, by frequently
changing the hands in
which they think proper to
lodge it.
