not kill," according to a re-
port from Tunis by Le
Monde. -
The French daily also re-
ported that another dec-
laration, signed by 190
Tunisian personalities,
condemned "all forms of ra-
cism" and rapped recent
anti-Semitic incidents in
the Tunisian towns of Zarzis
and Ben Gardane. Homes
and businesses of Jews in
those cities were recently
set afire and looted and sev-

eral Jews were injured. The
declaration by the 190 per-
sonalities was published in
the Tunisian ruling party's
newspaper Al Aman.
Le Monde pointed out
that with the two declara-
tions, the Tunisian Jewish
community now hopes that
the current tensions will
abate and that the situation
will revert to the normal
peaceful relations between
the Jews and their
neighbors.

How do non-Zionists interested in the fate of Israel feel
about President Reagan's proclaimed proposals for an
Arab-Israel understanding.
An answer to this question will be given at a four-day
meeting of American Jewish Committee leaders which will
open Nov. 4 in Los Angeles. The decision adopted at that
meeting will be considered by many in this country and in
Israel as expressing the sentiments of American non-
Zionist Jews who are pro-Israel but have never been associ-
ated with the Zionist movement.
The American Jewish Committee has a strong Jewish
tradition but has during all the years of its existence
abstained from being ideologically involved in Zionism.
The organization was considered as the non-Zionist partner
in the Jewish Agency. Even now the AJCommittee is not a
member of the Conference of Presidents of Major American
Organization - the roof organization of other national
Jewish groups alert to developments in American-Israeli
relations. In this central body the AJC prefers to be only an
"observer"; it perfers to go its own way in supporting Israel.
Its efforts have been highly appreciated by all Israeli
governments. There are issues on which the AJCommittee
differs with the Israel government, but it expresses its
dissent to Israeli government leaders privately, never pub-
licly.
The new plan by President Reagan, presented by him
to the American people - in fact to the entire world - on
television as a policy statement, as well as the develop-
ments in Lebanon, have stimulated some leaders of the
American Jewish Committee to raise a question whether
the present AJC policy with regard to issues concerning
Israel is to be considered merely as an "interim position,"
and whether the basic position of the organization should
be re-examined or re-interpreted with a view to establish
broad guidelines for setting a policy as new conditions
arise.
Recommendations on this question are now being sol-
icited from the AJC chapters. The AJC leaders from var-
ious parts of the country are being requested to come to the
Los Angeles confab prepared to debate Regan's initiative,
as well as the disagreements between Reagan and Israel on
major issues. These issues are: final status of the West
Bank (Judea and Samaria) and Gaza; The degree of au-
tonomy for Palestinian Arabs in these territories, which
are now under Israel; The issue of whether Israel should
continue to establish settlements in these territories dur-
ing on-going negotiations.
Another major question on which AJC leaders are sol-
icited to be prepared with an answer for the Los Angeles
meeting is whether the organization,-in adopting a position
differing from the Israel government on any of the three
points above, should make its differences known only pri-
vately to Israel or be ready to air them publicly.
POLICY POINTS: The American Jewish Committee
believes that President Reagan's proposals open new pos-
sibilities for a diplomatic breakthrough in search for Mid-
dle East peace, if all parties involved will seize the opportu-
nity the Reagan plan presents. However, the AJC wants
the proposals to be considered as "talking points" for dis-
cussion, not pre-conditions the U.S. should seek to impose.
The AJC finds that there are points in Reagan's plan
that require clarification. Also, that there are points that
are clearly unacceptable, like Reagan's call for negotia-
tions on the status of Jerusalem. The AJC opposes any
tendency by the U.S. to move away from its role as
mediator, which has been successful in the Camp David
agreement and brought about the Egyptian-Israeli under-
standing. It believes that Reagan's initiative should be
judged as a whole and dealt with on its merits. In this spirit,
the AJC intends to present opposition or support for various
aspects of Reagan's plan, giving each of them full consider-
ation.
