Israel Attacks Secret EEC Plan

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Pre-
mier Menahem Begin shar-
ply attacked what he called
a secret West European
document reportedly cal-
ling for Israel's complete re-
turn to the pre-1967 borders
in exchange for normal ties
with the Arab states.
"This is a plan of making
it possible one day to wipe
out Israel, to change our na-
tional security situation
otnpletely, to bring the
reatest damage to our
country," he told a group of
French former paratroop-
ers.
Begin condemned the
Venice Declaration by the
European Economic Com-
, munity adopted last June
calling for the inclusion of
the Palestine Liberation
Organization in Arab-
Israeli peace negotiations.
He then turned to the secret
document in which the
Europeans reportedly call
for Israel's complete with-
drawal within two years
and promise foreign secu-
rity guarantees to Israel.
The existence of a
secret EEC plan was de-
nied in Amsterdam by
Dutch Foreign Minister
Christopher van der
Klaauw, chairman of the

--

EEC's Council of Minis-
ters, in a meeting with
representatives of
Jewish groups from the
10 EEC countries. But
foreign press reports
claim that the EEC gov-
ernments have been pre-
sented wiht a secret
working paper contain-
ing the proposal for Is-
raeli withdrawal.
Meanwhile, a new con-
troversy has broken out be-
tween France and Israel

over remarks made by
Foreign Minister Jean
Francois-Poncet to a group
of Israeli journalists.

The minister said he
thought that certain aspects
of Israel's policy were "suic-
idal." The remark, reported
in the Israeli press, drew an
angry reaction from French
Foreign Ministry officials
who claimed that Poncet's
words had been distorted by
the Israeli media.

U.S. Cuts Funds to Resettle
Soviet Jews Here, in Israel

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
In its slashing of the federal
budget, the Reagan Ad-
ministration has recom-
mended elimination of
matching funds totaling
$24 million for resettlement
of Soviet Jewish immig-
rants in the United States.
The Administration last
month also decided to
eliminate the subsidy to Is-
rael of $25 million for the
current fiscal year for the
resettlement there of Soviet
Jews. The funding fot Israel
is to be ended by March 31.
Both actions are beign
protested by leading mem-
bers of the House of Repre-
sentatives. Rep. Jonathan
Bingham (D-N.Y.) has pro-
tested elimination of fund-
ing for Israel and Rep. Sid-
ney Yates (D-Ill.) has as-
sailed the proposal for im-
migrants in this country.
He said "charitable agen-
cies simply cannot provide
the necessary funding for
this task."
Meanwhile, the United
States had urged South
Africa to swap a Russian
spy now in a Johannes-
burg jail, Maj. Aleksei
Kozlov, for Anatoly
Shcharansky, the im-
prisoned Soviet human-
rights activist.
It marks the first Reagan
Administration involve-
ment in the world-wide ef-
fort to free the 33-year-old
Jewish dissident. Sources
say a break could come after
South African elections in
April.
In a related development,
Soviet officials have ques-
tioned several leading Mos-
cow Jewish activists in the
case of Viktor Brailovsky,
who was arrested and jailed
last November, the Greater
New York Conference on
Soviet Jewry reported.
In Jerusalem, Avital
Shcharansky launched yet
another effort to mobilize
world opinion to free her
husband, who is serving the
fourth year of a 13-year sen-
tence for "subversive activi-
ties" and slandering the
Soviet Union.
At a press conference here
she declared, "I ask all the
heads of states, particularly
the Administration of
President Reagan, to do ev-
erything possible to stop the
suffering of my husband."
She was flanked by
other former Soviet
Jewish Prisoners of Con-
science, including Yosef
Mendelevich who was
freed last month after

serving 11 years of a 15-
year sentence, later
commuted to 12 years,
imposed at the 1970
Leningrad hijack trial;
and Hillel Butman and
Alexander Lunz who
were released earlier
from Soviet prisons.
According to Mrs.
Shcharansky, her husband,
an inmate of Labor Camp 35
in the Urals, was trans-
ferred about - a month ago
from the camp proper to its
prison compound for a
period of six months.
Mendelevich said that
"judging by past experience,
this is he first phase before
returning Shcharansky to
regular prison." His friends,
who underwent similar
ordeals, said prison condi-
tions were far worse than
the labor camps. They said
prisoners were refused
blankets at night despite
bitter cold and were
punished if they fell asleep
during the day.
Mrs. Shcharansky dis-
missed recent press reports
that Shcharansky would be
released shortly in ex-
change for a Soviet spy irri
prisoned in South Africa.
She claimed the reports
were planted by the KGB to
mislead world opinion.
Lunz agreed with that
theory. He told reporters
conditions in the USSR are
getting worse and urged
them to disregard "mislead-
ing optimism."
