Sinai Settlers, Government Rift Dutch Official Wary of EEC
Participation in Sinai Force
Continues Varna Controversy
AMSTERDAM (JTA) — scribe to the Venice declara-

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Angry residents of Yamit
burned a second house there
Sunday night. A house was
burned the previous night
and the townspeople, claim-
ing they could not afford to
buy a fire truck, summoned
the fire department from
the nearby Arab town of
Rafah to put out the blaze.
The fires were the latest
incidents in the mounting
confrontation between the
settlers in northern Sinai
and the government over
compensation for relocating
when the region is returned
to Egypt next April.
The Cabinet remains
badly divided over what ac-
tion to take to maintain
order in Yamit. The resi-
dents flatly rejected a
Cabinet appeal to resume
negotiations for compensa-
tion.

Sharon, the govern-
ment's most outspoken
hawk, is counseling pati-
ence. His position was
supported by the Na-
tional Religious Party
ministers.
But ministers of Likud's
Liberal Party wing joined
Herut's. Mordechai Zipori,
the minister of communica-
tions, in demanding a tough
response as recommended
by Attorney General Yit-
zhak Zamir.

Shamir, Economic Coor-:
dinator Yaacov Meridor-and
Finance Minister Yoram
Aridor, all of Herut, kept
their own counsel. Appa-
rently, they are waiting for
a reaction from Premier
Menahem Begin who, so far,
has. been silent.
Deputy Premier and Ag-
riculture Minister Simha
Erlich, who is in charge of
negotiations with the
Yamit settlers, charged
that the town was being run
by a group of hoodlums who
are terrorizing the other re-
sidents.
Ehrlich was supposed
to visit Yamit, but both
the town leaders and the
army said they could not
guarantee • his safety.
Ehrlich said Yamit bus-
inessmen were demand-
ing individual payments
of 2.2 million shekels (ab-
out $150,000) in advance
of their relocations, a sum
the government could not
and would not pay.
Sharon, for his part, said
he would not be the gov-
ernment's "hatchet man"
and warned his colleagues
not to take any action which
the Defense Ministry could
not carry out.
This was a hint that he
would not use force against
the Sinai settlers. He also
hinted that it would be to
Israel's advantage to keep

the world guessing whether
Israel would carry out its
treaty obligation to
evacuate all of Sinai by the
April 1982 deadline.
Begin, however, has as-
sured Egypt that Israel
would honor its commit-
ment to withdraw on time.
That pledge was contained
in a letter delivered to Pres-
ident Hosni Mubarak.
Meanwhile, Yamit ac-
tivists reportedly said
they would not mind a
violent confrontation
with the government if it
would advance their •de-
mands. Some have
suggested that Yamit de-
clare itself an autonom-
ous region.
Zamir said he could take
no legal action against them
because the area is under
military jurisdiction.
It was learned, mean-
while, that the Cabonet re-
frained from taking_ decisive
action to reduce the threat
of a violent confrontation
with settlers in north Sinai
which must be returned to
Egypt next April.
Cabinet Secretary Arye
Naor said the govern-
ment intends to carry out its
obligations under the
Egyptian-Israeli peace tre-
aty to the letter and will
complete the evacuation of
Sinai next April "with or
without the agreement of
the good people of the
movement to halt the with-
drawal."
Ehrlich, who is in charge
of the Sinai withdrawal,
said that if a compensation
agreement could be worked
out, all residents would be
removed by next March 31.
He added, however, that no-
thing could-be done to pre-
vent new residents from
moving in and that the
squatters were not violating
the law by occupying vac-
ated houses.
He was promptly
criticized by opposition
members of the Knesset
for inviting the Gush
Emunim and - other
ultra-nationalists to defy
the government, making
it more difficult to re-
move them.
Many Yamit residents
are willing to move but are
holding out for a better offer
of compensation from the
government for the
businesses, homes and
farms they will have to
abandon.
The ideologically moti-
vated settlers, their num-
bers enlarged by the squat=
ters, declare they will not
leave Sinai under any cir-
cumstances. They are, in
fact, repairing greenhouses
and farms as if there was no
question of evacuating in a
few months time.
These people, members of
the rightwing Tehiya fac-
tion, the "Movement to Halt
the Withdrawal" and the
Gush Emunim are trying to
collect one million signa-
tures on a petition demand-
ing that the government re-
nege on the sinai with-
drawal clause of its peace
treaty with Egypt.
