Percy: Settlements Provocative,'
Defends Senate Record on Israel

NEW YORK (JTA)--
Sen. Charles Percy (D-Ill.),
calling Israel's "extensive"
West Bank settlements
"provocative," told a group
of Jewish leaders last week
that the settlements dis-
couraged Jordan from en-
tering into peace negotia-
tions with the Jewish state.
He said he had been assured
that King Hussein wants to
enter into negotiations with
Israel.
Percy, chairman of the
Foreign Relations Commit-
tee, spoke to a closed meet-
ing of the Conference of
Presidents of Major Ameri-
can Jewish Organizations.

The meeting with the some
100 Jewish leaders was re-
quested by Percy, who is
seeking re-election.
The Senator said he op-
posed the establishment of
an independent Palestinian
state but asserted that the
Palestinian people needed a
national homeland, which
he said should be in some
form of confederation with
Jordan. He said he regarded
Yasir Arafat, the Palestine
Liberation Organization
chief, as a "relative moder-
ate compared with George
Habash," the leader of the
Popular Front for the Lib-
eration of Palestine.

The senior Senator
from Illinois also de-
fended his support for
the 1981 sale of AWACS
reconnaissance planes
and other advanced
weaponry to Saudi
Arabia, which he termed
as a "moderate" Arab
state "compared with
Libya and Syria." He said
the military balance had
not shifted against Israel
as a result of the U.S.
arms sale to the Saudis.

On other topics, Percy
was reported to have ap-
peared uncomfortable with
a question about why the
U.S. did not move its em-
bassy to Jerusalem. He said
"the time was not ripe" for
such a move and that he
would not seek to push the
Reagan Administration
into such a step at this time.
Percy said he strongly op-
posed any demands by Syria
or its surrogates in Lebanon
that the government of
President Amin Gemayel

urity and withdrawal ac-
cord with Israel: The Ad-
ministration, he said, was
strongly opposed to any
such action. He said tht he
had personally urged Presi-

Egypt to return his ambas-
sador to Israel and to re-
sume progress toward nor-
malization between the two
countries.
In a statement distri-

Condemns
New Settlements

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The Reagan Administra-
tion expressed "regret"
Tuesday over a report that
Israel plans to establish five
new settlements in the West
Bank.
State Department deputy
spokesman Alan Romberg
said the U.S. "position is
clear: we regard settle-
ments as an obstacle to
peace." Romberg once again
quoted from President
Reagan's speech of Sep-
tember 1, 1982 announcing
his Middle East peace in-
itiative in which Reagan
said, "Further settlement
activity is in no way neces-
sary for the security of Is-
rael and only diminishes
the confidence of the Arabs
that a final outcome can be
freely and fairly
negotiated."

The spokesman was re-
sponding to a report from
Jerusalem that the Is-
raeli government has de-
cided to establish five
more settlements, three
near Jericho, one in the
northern part of the
West Bank and the fifth
near Nablus. The report
said that a source told Is-
rael Radio that the three
settlements near Jericho
were being planned to
hinder any future prop-
osal to return the area to
Jordanian control.

Anti-PLO Pledge
Dropped in WB

TEL AVIV — A require-

ment that lecturers at Arab
colleges in the administered
territories pledge to abstain
from assisting the Palestine
Liberation Organization in
any way has been discarded
by the Israeli civil adminis-
tration in the West Bank.
A number of foreign
teachers, who were refused
work permits last year
when they balked at signing
the pledge, are now free to
join the faculties of the four
West Bank universities.
