"While stressing the impor-

"far from increasing the se-

a spokesperson for the
group said that the annexa-
tion has "grave implications
because it impairs the pos-
sibility of a negotiated set-
tlement between Syria and
Israel."
However, Rabbi Joseph
Sternstein, president of the
American Zionist Federa-
tion, stated, in response to
Israel's action: "The appli-
cation by the state of Israel
of the force of her law to the
Golan Heights was a neces-
sary and just step. It was
necessary for the welfare of
the inhabitants of that area,
including the Arab popula-
tion which was living under
the physical intimidation
and threat of the Syrians,
and will quickly stabilize
the situation on the Golan
Heights , . .
"Syria has sworn her
absolute refusal to make
peace with Israel even if
the PLO - does so,' in the
words of her leader.
Under these circum-
stances, the nations of the
world should dare not
impose a double
standard upon Israel in
terms of acts and conduct
all of them practiced in
their own experience,
namely that in a defen-
sive war, the defending
and victorious nation has
a right to remove a land
threat from its immediate
borders. , This is all that
Israel has done."
Ambassador Ephraim
Evron of Israel expressed
"regret and deep disap-
pointment" at the U.S. vote
against Israel in the Secu-
rity Council and its decision
to suspend the strategic
cooperation accord. He
termed the U.S. actions "un-
just" and noted that it gives
satisfaction to Syria. "It will
only serve to exacerbate the
situation and encourage the
extremist forces in the Arab
world, thus endangering
the peace process," Evron
said.
He stated that the Secu-
rity Council resolution and
the Administration's action



Shinui and Labor joined
in a Knesset no-
confidence motion
against Begin over his
remarks. But Begin won
the vote Wednesday,
57-47.

"will not deter Israel from
taking whatever action it
considers necessary to
ensure that the Golan
Heights will never again
serve as a base of Syrian ag-
gression." Evron noted that
the Knesset law on the
Golan "does not violate Se-
curity ,Council Resolutions
242 and 338 nor the Camp
David Accords."
Meanwhile, Israel Am-
bassador to the UN Yehuda
Blum, speaking after the
Security Council vote con-
demning Israel for annex-
ing the Golan Heights, said
the resolution was "tainted"
and fundamentally flawed
because it "ignores Syria's
persistent aggression
against Israel since the very
day it was established in
1948."
Premier Menahem
Begin and Defense Minis-
ter Ariel Sharon un-
leashed a severe
counter-offensive
against the Reagan Ad-
ministration.
Begin, in an angry state-
ment submitted to U.S.
Ambassador Samuel Lewis
on Monday, accused the
U.S. of attempting to
"punish" Israel for its act
and reneging on the prom-
ises of President Reagan
and Secretary of State Ale-
xander Haig. He vowed that
Israel would never rescind
the Golan law.

Sharon, in a radio inter-
view, charged that suspen-
sion of the strategic cooper-
ation agreement cast doubt
on the credibility of U.S. in-
ternational commitments
and raised doubts about its
commitment to the Camp
David accords.
He called the American
measures "unjustified" and
"immature" and said they
would only serve to
"encourage extremists in
the Middle East, especially
Syria which is hostile to the
U.S. and rejects the Camp
David process."
U.S. Secretary of State
Alexander Haig publicly
tried to smooth over the
difficulties.
"Israel has been, is today
and will remain a close
friend of the U.S.," Haig
said in an appearance on the
CBS-TV "Face the Nation"
program: He said that
President Reagan, probably
more than his predecessors,
understood the "vital im-
portance of our obligations
to the people of Israel and
guarantees to the survival
of that state. Nothing has
changed."
Hag said the long-
standing U.S. policy toward
Israel has been in the
"interests" not only of Israel
but of the U.S. He said the
task now was for American
diplomacy to work to re-
solve the problems, "not
exacerbate them."
However, Haig denied
that his remarks were a

"whitewash" of Israel's an-
nexation of the Golan
Heights last week.
But now, he said, the
leaders of both countries
have to work together to
"repair the damage" and
move ahead with the
peace process. He said
the U.S. condemned the
Israeli action on the
Golan Heights because it
put the peace process "in
jeopardy."
Meanwhile, Defense Sec-
retary Caspar Weinberger,
while also saying it was es-
sential for the U.S. to have
"close working relations"
with Israel and with "mod-
erate Arab governments,"
took a harsher line toward
Israel than Haig.
Appearing on the
ABC-TV "This Week With
David Brinkley" program,
Weinberger said it is essen-
tial for the U.S. to be per-
ceived as pursuing the
peace process in the Middle
East and it cannot condone
-unilateral action by one side
even if that side is a close
friend like Israel.
He said the U.S. has to
"bring home to the world"
that the "cost" of actions
such as the annexation of
the Golan Heights and Is-
rael's bombing of Iraq's nu-
clear reactor last June, can-
not be condoned.
Weinberger main-
tained that Israel had vio-
lated both the "spirit and
the letter" of the UN Se-
curity Council Resolu-
tion 242 which, he said,
requires the future of the
Golan Heights and other
territories conquered by
Israel in 1967 to be solved
by negotiations.
When columnist George
Will remarked that if Israel
had violated the spirit of the
law, Syria had "repealed" it

by its refusal to negotiate
with Israel, Weinberger re-
plied that a wrong by one
side does not justify a wrong
by another.
The American Jewish
Committee appealed to both
Israel and the United States
to heal the sharp dif-
ferences.
Bertram Gold, executive
vice president of the AJ-
Committe said, "We appeal
to our own government and
to the government of Israel
to stop the dangerous er.
lation of harsh declarat
and actions against one an-
other. Only the enemies of
both the U.S. and Israel can
benefit from -such escala-
tion. It is less important
now to assess blame for the
present disarray than to get
the- governments' back to
positive, trusting dis-
cussions."
