U.S. Will Stick. to Peace
Plan Despite Israel Protest

WASHINGTON

Nancy and I welcome the observance of Rosh
Hashanah and Yom Kippur as an opportunity to
send special greetings to the Jewish people
and to wish you every health and happiness for
the coming year.

According to Jewish legend, "Three books are
opened on Rosh Hashanah: one for the wholly
righteous, one for the wholly wicked, and one
for the intermediates. The wholly righteous
are at once inscribed and sealed in the Book of
Life; the wholly wicked are at once inscribed
and sealed in the Book of Death; and the inter-
mediates are suspended from Rosh Hashanah to
Yom Kippur." However, even the most severe
decree can be averted by repentance, acts of
kindness and prayer.

As the Jewish New Year commences, Jews throughout
the world will begin a period of introspection
and atonement and a reexamination of their per-
sonal relationship with God. The stirring sound
of the Shofar will echo in prayer services every-
where, calling out to all of the Jewish Faith.
Nancy and I join with you in the spirit of this
solemn holiday and in your prayers for the New Year.

Our heartfelt wish is that at the conclusion of
the Days of Atonement, each of you may be inscribed
for a good year in the Book of Life and that we may
work together to build a world of peace for our
children and freedom for all mankind.

Shamir: Israel Will Continue to Seek
Peace Treaty With Lebanon Government

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir said in a weekend
radio interview that a for-
mal peace treaty with
Lebanon remained Israel's
goal, because a formal act
was required to end the over
30 years' state of bel-
ligerencey between the two
countries.
"Normal relations be-
tween countries usually
start when there is a formal
peace treaty between them,
especially after such a long
period of war," he said.
Shamir said he did not know
how long this would take
"but it should be as soon as
possible."
The Foreign Minister
said there was no intention
of using force to obtain a
peace treaty. "Peace should
be reached by joint negotia-
tions and agreement,"
Shamir said.
There- were reports
from Beirut over the
weekend that
President-elect Bashir
Gemayel, who was assas-
sinated Tuesday, had
asked Israel not to press
for a formal peace treaty,
but to accept a de facto
treaty by normalizing
trade and commercial re-
lations between the two
countries.
reportedly
Gemayel

YITZHAK SHAMIR

pointed out that a formal
treaty with Israel would
generate adverse reactions

from other Arab countries
and isolate Lebanon from
the Arab world.
But Shamir contended
that only a peace treaty, and
not practical normal rela-
tions of trade and tourism,
could bring about the radi-
cal change needed for both
Lebanon and the Middle
East.
He said there was a direct
connection between the spe-
cial defense and security ar-
rangements which Israel
would require in a 40-
kilometer belt in southern
Lebanon along Israel's bor-
ders, whether there was
formal peace or not.

Soviet Leader Backs PLO,
Hits U.S. Support of Israel

MOSCOW — Leonid I.
Brezhnev has reaffirmed
Soviet support for the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion in a cablegram to PLO
leader Yasir Arafat pub-
lished by Tass, the Soviet
press agency.
The
Soviet leader
cautioned Arafat against
what he described as Wash-
ington's efforts to deny the
Palestinians their own
state. The cable was seen by
Western experts as an at-
tempt to steer Arafat away
from President Reagan's
proposals for a Middle East

peace agreement.
The message asserted
Moscow's position, repeated
throughout the Lebanon
war, that the U.S. shared
responsibility for the
bloodshed by providing the
Israelis with weapons and
"political and diplomatic
cover for the aggression."
"The United States is try-
ing to deny the Palestinians
their sacred right to self-
determination and to estab-
lishing their own state,"
Brezhnev said in an allu-
sion to the Reagan Ad-
ministration's initiatives.

LONDON (JTA) — A
blunt warning that the
United States will not be de-
terred from pursuing its
latest Middle East plan by
Israel's negative reaction to
President Reagan's pro-
posals was made here by
U.S. Defense Secretary
Caspar Weinberger.
One of the differences be-
tween this and previous
Administrations was that
"we will not turn and run,"
he told an interviewer in the
London Times.
"We will not say: '0 dear,
Mr. Begin doesn't like it, we
can't proceed with it,' or
anything of the kind." The
President, Weinberger
stated, "does not operate
that way. He had devoted a
great deal of time and
thought and effort to de-
veloping this initiative."
The Reagan plan,
Weinberger continued,
offered "one of the best
hopes for peace" in the
Middle East in recent
years.
"When I was in Israel I
expressed the disappoint-
ment that I think we all feel
that Mr. Begin after an hour
or half-an-hour, or what-
ever it was, of consideration
with his Cabinet flatly re-
jected it and then within a
few days started action that
seemed to be designed to
emphasize their opposition
and contempt for this at-
tempt to bring peace."
Weinberger said that de-
spite Premier Menahem
Begin's reaction, the U.S.
cannot say "That's the end
of it. I think we have to con-
tinue to do what we're try-
ing to do, to demonstrate to
all countries involved, in-
cluding Israel, that it's very
much in their interest and
advantage." He added that
although the U.S. intends to
pursue the Reagan pro-
posals, pressure will not be
exerted on Israel to accept

Weinberger also held
talks with British Denfense
and Foreign Affairs Minis-
