Opponents Hit Dayan's Candidacy

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
Former Foreign Minister
Moshe Dayan's announce-
ment Saturday that he will
run in the June 30 Knesset
elections at the head of a
new party, Telem (Move-
ment for National Re-
newal), was greeted with
scorn and ,derision by both
the opposition Labor
Alignment and Likud over
the weekend.
Spokesmen for both blocs
predicted that the new fac-
tion was doomed to failure
as a political factor but
would succeed in fragment-
ing the Knesset so that no
single party would be able
to achieve a working major-
ity.
Dayan made his an-
nouncement at a meeting of
the Ramah Political Discus-
sion Group. He said Telem
would work for the estab-
lishment of a broad coali-
tion but would not demand
any specific portfolios in the
next government. He
named the 15 members who
would stand for election
with him on the Telem tic-
ket.
Significantly, they did
not include former Fi-
nance Minister Yigal
Hurwitz who withdrew
his three-man Rafi fac-
tionfrom the Likud coali-
tion last year. Dayan
said, however, that he
was ready to accept
Hurwitz and the other
Rafi members if they ac-
cepted the Telem plat-
form.
Labor Party chairman

Shimon Peres criticized
Dayan's move, observing
that now was not the time to
split the electorate into
splinter parties.' A large
single party is required to
guide the country through
the difficult period ahead,
Peres said.
Victor Shemtov, leader of
Mapam, said Dayan's list
was composed of "outcasts
from various other parties."
Its existence, he said would
only ensure that the Na-
tional Religious. Party
would be courted by other
factions in order to form a
coalition. Likud Knesset
Whip Haif Corfu predicted a
short existence for Telem
because, he said, it was un-
necessary.
Avraham Sharir, of
Likud's Liberal Party fac-
tion, said Telem was the
Democratic Movement for
Change (DMC) in a differ-
ent guise and like the DMC
would serve only to split the
vote. He was referring to the
party headed by Yigael
Yadin which won 15 Knes-
set seats in the 1977 elec-
tions, chiefly at the expense
of the Labor Alignment,
later joined the Likud-led
goVernment and sub-

sequently disintegrated.
Mordechai Wirshubsky of
Shinui, a break-away fac-
tion of the DMC, said Day-
an's list was made up of
"power hungry individuals
surrounding an individual
(Dayan) who represented
all that was negative and
dubious in Israeli society."

Hurwitz said he re-
fused to join Dayan's

party because its call for
the unilateral implemen-
tation of autonomy for
the Arabs of the West
Bank and Gaza Strip was
"dangerous." He also
disagreed with Dayan
that the future of
Jerusalem should be in-
cluded in any agenda of
discussions with the
Arabs. Hurwitz said his
Rafi faction would meet
shortly to decide whether
to enter the Knesset elec-
tions with its own list. He
said he thought it should.
In addition to Dayan, the
Telem list includes Mor-
dechai Ben-Porat and Zal-
man Shoval, two long-time
supporters of the former
foreign minister, Yisrael

toral duties which the
Holy See had promised
Capucci would be limited
to, after his release from
prison in 1977."
The Italian newspaper Il
Giornale Nuovo, in a brief
comment on the meeting,
wrote that obviously the
"Holy See considers
Arafat's organization as one
of the 'parties concerned' in
the Middle East conflict."
