Defeats Rabin, Plan Shadow Cabinet

(Continued from Page 1)
higher representation than
demanded strictly by their
numbers.
In his victory speech last
week, Peres urged the party
to forget about the contest
just ended and unite and
mobilize for the "real chal-
lenge — beating Likud. I
ask you all to forget 70 per-
cent and 28 percent. We are
"0 percent," Peres de-
red to thunderous
applause. He placed great
emphasis on unity within
Labor ranks, calling for a
"massive majority" in sup-
port of its leadership.
The greater the majority,
the smaller the danger of
"factionalism" in the party,
he said. "If we are to ask the
nation for a clear majority
the Knesset elections)
us not smash the major-
s y in our own camp." If a
new Labor government
hopes to be free of depen-
dence on other parties, it
must be free of dependence
on internal factions within
its own party, Peres said.
This was seen as - a
pointed warning to Ra-
bin's supporters to close
ranks and not attempt to
form a separate
separate "camp"

within the Labor Party's
institutions. Rabin, in a
terse statement to the
convention, said he "ac-
cepts and respects" the
decision of the delegates.
He reiterated his pledge
"that the party will
emerge from this conven-
tion whole and united."
But the former premier
was widely criticized by
convention delegates for his
failure to shake hands with
Peres or to mention him —
much less congratulate him
— in his speech. Peres, in
contrast, walked over to
Rabin and demonstratively
shook his hand before he
began his speech.
While Peres' margin of
victory exceeded the expec-
tations of his supporters —
they would have considered
65 percent a substantial
success — political obser-
vers said his 70 percent
majority did not constitute a
landslide but was solid
enough to enable him to
exclude Rabin from his fu-
ture leadership team and
from his Cabinet should
Labor triumph in the next
elections. According to the
experts, Peres should refuse
point blank to negotiate for'
power positions with the
"Rabin camp" as a camp.
The first test of his ability
and de t ermination to con-
solidate his victory began
when the convention com-
menced the complex and ar-
duous procedure of electing
the party's new 701-
member Central Commit-
tee, its key policy-making
body between conventions.
Peres supporters were in-
sisting that the Rabin group
cannot claim representa-
tion in precise proportion to
the 28.8 percent of the vote
garnered by their man.
Peres' lie itenants
argued that t_ Kibutz
Hameuchad movement,
as a bloc, and other ele-
ments of the "Rabin
camp" would be fairly
represented in the Cen-
tral Committee as indi-
viduals or as local
groups. But the "Rabin
camp" as such must now
disband, they said.

Peres' victory speech and
his keynote speech at the
convention meeting were
acknowledged even by his
critics to have been among
his best. He reviewed his
many years of service to the
Labor movement and the
government, dwelling espe-
cially on his tenure as de-
fense minister.
He spoke of Labor's re-
juvenation since its massive
electoral defeat at the hands
of Likud three years ago. He
emphasized his plans for
encouraging "sophisticated
science-based induetries" in
Israel to provide employ-
ment for hundreds of
thousands of newcomers
and veterans and to reduce
the nation's foreign debts
-and its dependency on
foreign oil.
Rabin's speech was also
well received. It was mainly
a programatic review of na-
tional policy and national
needs. He dwelt on the
merits of the Allon plan, ad-
vanced by the late Foreign
Minister Yigal Allon as a
compromise settlement on
the West Bank.
A large number of
foreign visitors from "sis-
ter Socialist parties" in
various parts of the
world joined Israel Labor
Party leaders on the dais
at the party convention.
Two of them, Egypt's
former Premier Mus-
tapha Khalil and Butros
Ghali, minister Of state
for foreign affairs, repre-
senting President Anwar
Sadat's National Demo-
cratic Party, contrived to
arrive in Israel late to
avoid attending the con-
vention openign in
Jerusalem.
When the convention
transferred to Tel Aviv for
its _second day they were
present.
Other visitors included
Francois Mitterand, the
French Socialist leader who
represented the Socialist

Cabinet Opposes
Golan Bills

JERUSALEM The Is-
raeli Cabinet on Monday
voted to oppose several bills
in the Knesset that were
due for action on Wednes-
day to annex the Golan
Heights.
The Cabinet said the
move was unnecessary and
that it was bowing to
American pressure.
An American Zionist
organization has sent a
telegram to Shimon Peres,
head of the Israeli Labor
Party, urging him to oppose
any efforts to unilaterally
annex the Golan Heights.
The telegram, sent by the
Anielewicz Circle of Ameri-
cans for Progressive Israel,
said annexation would play
in to the hands of the
enemies of Israel.

International. The foreign
guests included a high-
ranking minister from
Romania, another from
Sierra Leone and an exile
Chilean Socialist leader.
There were delegates repre-
senting all Western Euro-
pean Socialist parties.
Mario Suarez of Portugal
was unable to attend at the
last minute because he was
slightly injured in an auto-
mobile accident.
President Yitzhak Navon
attended the convention
opening, as he does the con-
vention openings of all of Is-
rael's political parties. Al-
though his office is non-
political and he is barred
from making statements
favoring any particular fac,
tion, he told the Laborites,
"I wish that you emerge
whole in body and spirit
from this convention."
Mapam Secretary Gen-
eral Victor Shemtov
exhorted Labor to "unite,
conciliate, join hands here
and now." His plea was
echoed by Histadrut Secre-
tary General Yeruham
Meshel who warned that
the nation "will not forgive
us" if Labor misses its
chance to change the gov-
ernment.

Rabbi Requests
MDA Recognition

OFFICIAL 0 AGENCY

MIAMI BEACH — In an
effort to gain International
Red Cross recognition for
Israel's Magen David
Adorn, Rabbi Rubin R.
Dobin has instigated a
world-wide petition drive
with a goal of one million
signatures.
According to Dobin, Is-
rael's Red Cross fulfills 9 of
the 10 criteria for admission
but is kept out because it re-
fuses to use the Red Cross
emblem, preferring instead,
its own star of David.
