Israeli Envoys Push
Separate Peace Plans

Jerusalem (JTA) — Labor and
Likud are taking their bitter dispute
over an international conference for
Middle East peace to Washington, a
development which could embarrass
the Reagan Administration and has
already heightened the atmosphere of
government crisis at home.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir confirm-
ed Monday night that he had receiv-
ed a message from President Reagan
urging him to respond to every possi-

press reports that Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres met secretly with King
Hussein of Jordan ten days ago and

chairmen plan to broaden the base of

BECOME TOO
INDEPENDENT?

On the eve of the 39th anniversary of
Jewish statehood, critics charge that
recent Israeli actions have seriously
jeopardized American good will. But
others assert that the $3 billion in
U.S. aid to Israel is a bargain.
