ONEG SHABBAT TO FOLLOW

I

Athens (JTA) — President
Hosni Mubarak of Egypt ended a
two-day official visit to Greece
over the weekend following a
90-minute meeting with Prime
Minister Andreas Papandreou.
During his stay he also met three
times with President Constantine
Karamanlis.
The Egyptian leader and his
Greek hosts appeared to be in
general agreement on the urgent
need to promote the peace process
in the Middle East and the impor-
tance of fresh initiatives by the
European Economic Community
(EEC), of which Greece is a
member, toward that end.
Karamanlis told Mubarak that
Greece would do its utmost to con-
tribute to a settlement of the
Arab-Israeli conflict by encourag-
ing the EEC to take a stronger
interest in that problem. He said
the Middle East issue, with the
Palestinian problem as its start-
ing point, has become danger-
ously complicated with the pas-
sage of time because of ideologi-
cal, economic and religious an-
tagonisms.
The president implied support
for the Camp David agreements
when he said he recognized the
courage and realism with which
Egypt tried in the past and is still
trying to promote the peace proc-
ess.
Mubarak said he was convinced
that Egypt and Greece held iden-
tical views, including Egypt's
support for the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization as the sole
representative of the Palestinian
people and its right to be included
in the peace process.
According to Mubarak, the first
step toward a comprehensive and

just peace must be mutual recog-
nition of and respect for the rights
of the Palestinian people to self-
determination and to establish a
state on their own soil.

The Egyptian leader stressed
that a suitable climate was
needed for the speedy resumption
of peace negotiations between Is-
rael and the Arab countries. He
expressed deep regret over the Is-
raeli government's decision to es-
tablish new settlements on the
West Bank maintaining that this
was contrary to the positive ges-
tures which were expected from
Israel and which would have
strengthened the moderate and

constructive elements in the Arab
world.
As a first step in that direction,
Mubarak called for radical meas-
ures to improve living conditions
for the inhabitants of the West
Bank and Gaza Strip leading to
the gradual return of sovereignty
to the Palestinian people who, he
said, own both the right and the
land.
Meanwhile, Mordechai Drori,
director general of Israel's
Foreign Ministry, arrived in
Athens Monday on a one-day visit
for talks with Theodoros Pan-
galos, Undersecretary of Foreign
Affairs in charge of relations with
the EEC.

Bond Gala Net $45 Million

Jerusalem (JTA) — About 200
Israel Bonds leaders from the
United States, Canada and Latin
America pledged to purchase
more than $45 million in Israel
Bonds during the coming year at a
banquet with Premier Shimon
Peres at the Jerusalem Hilton
Hotel Saturday night.
The gala affair, attended by
several Cabinet ministers,
marked the end of a week-long
tour of the country where the vis-
itors were shown industrial de-
velopment projects and military
installations and had meetings
with most government leaders.
Peres spoke of his government's

Sabotage Unit
Is Convicted

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Six Israeli
Druze from Galilee and a
Lebanese member of a terrorist
organization were found guilty of
charges of espionage and at-
tempted sabotage by a Haifa dis-
trict court.
The verdict on Sunday was the
first public disclosure of the affair
which began 18 months ago with
the arrests of the suspects. Ac-
cording to the charge sheets, one
of their sabotage targets was the
36-story Shalom Tower in Tel
Aviv, Israel's tallest building.
Other targets included the Haifa
oil refineries, Tel Aviv's Dizengoff
Street, and bus stations in
Jerusalem and northern Israel.
The sabotage ring was un-
covered in August, 1983, when a
Lebanese citizen, identified as
Farid el-Halik, was stopped at the
Rosh Hanikra border checkpoint
trying to drive his Mercedes from
Lebanon into Israel. Some 121
pounds of high explosives was
found in a reserve gasoline tank.
Also found were detonators and
electronic sabotage equipment.
According to the charges, el-
Halik's Mercedes was to have
been abandoned in the parking
garage under the Shalom Tower
with the explosives set to go off by
a timing device.

Washington (JTA) — Rabbi
Alfred Gottschalk, president of
the Hebrew Union College, the
Reform seminary in Cincinnati,
was one of the four clergymen who
participated in the swearing in
ceremony of President Reagan
and Vice President George Bush
on Monday which followed the of-
ficial swearing in of Reagan and
Bush at the White House Sunday
to meet the Constitutional re-
quirement that it be held at noon
Jan. 20.
In his prayer, Gottschalk urged
that the leaders of the govern-
ment be guided "in protecting the
Constitution of our beloved com-
monwealth founded in faith
which ensures unity without uni-
formity". and in advancing "the
American way which gives to
bigotry no sanction, to malevo-
lence no hope."
He also prayed that "this oppor-
tunity for renewal will advance
reconciliation in the family of na-
tions, guarantee peace in our
world and tranquility in the
farthest reaches of our universe."
At an ecumenical prayer serv-
ice at the National Cathedral
Sunday, Rabbi Lemard Cahan of
Cong. Har Shalom of Potomac,
Md., a Conservative congrega-
tion, chanted a selection from the
Torah and then translated it into
English. Cantor Joseph Malovany
of the Fifth Avenue Synagogue
was scheduled to sing Monday af-
ternoon at one of the official
cocktail parties, this one given by
New York lawyer Roy Cohen.

decision to withdraw the Israel
Defense Force from Lebanon and
relations with Egypt. "We want
Lebanon to remain independent
and peaceful," Peres said. "We do
not seek a part of her waters nor a
part of her territories, and we do
not want to play a part in her poli-
tics. But at the same time we are
determined that no katyusha
(rockets) will be fired from her
territories at the villages of
Galilee."
Peres stressed that "We do not
ask Lebanon for permission to
leave, nor do we charge Lebanon
with the task of defending our vil-
lages. We shall leave on our own,
we shall defend our villages our-
selves, with the strategy we deem
fit."
The Premier noted that talks
with Egypt are to begin shortly in
Beersheba to resolve the border
dispute over the Taba region on
the Gulf of Aqaba which both
countries claim. "Israel will work
uninterruptedly to make the
peace with Egypt a real political
success. We don't want the first
peace agreement (with an Arab
state) to be the last one," he said.
At an economic panel held ear-
lier in the day, the Bond leaders
heard from Arye Sher, Account-
ant General of the Finance Minis-
try. He said Israel's average
long-term-debt is at an advantage
Over other countries whose debts
are much shorter term. Israel's
average rate of interest payments
on long-term debts — 5.2 percent
— is low by international
standards, he said.
