Haig Criticizes Reagan Plan for Mideast

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Former Secretary of State
Alexander Haig, in his first
address to a Jewish organ-
ization since he resigned
from the Reagan Adminis-
tration in June, denounced
President's Reagan's "fresh
start" plan for the Middle
East.
Speaking Tuesday with-
out a text of 300 United
Jewish Appeal leaders at
the UJA's "Hineni I" lead-
ership meeting, Haig said
the Reagan proposal for a
freeze on Jewish settle-
ments in the West Bank was
"a very serious mistake."
He asserted that he had
