Tamir Says Hussein's
Move Will Not Work

New York — The director-
general of Israel's Foreign
Ministry says that despite
King Hussein's policy of
separating from the Palesti-
nians and the West Bank,
there can be "no solution" to
the Palestinian issue and the
question of Israel's perma-
nent boundaries without the
full participation of Jordan.
Avraham Tamir told the
Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations last week that
King Hussein acted out of
"frustration that the high ex-
pectations resulting from his
talks in London with then-
Prime Minister Peres two
years ago, had led only to
stalemate."
He added, "King Hussein
knows — and we know — that
Israel's boundaries cannot be
settled without the participa-
tion of the country that
shares the longest border
with Israel, and that the fate

of the Palestinians cannot be
determined without the par-
ticipation of the only state in
the world that has a Palesti-
nian majority."
Tamir said only an interna-
tional peace coference under
the auspices of the U.N.
Security Council, bringing
together Israel, Arab states
and a joint Palestinian-
Jordanian delegation as pro-
posed by Secretary of State
Shultz, can break the pro-
cedural deadlock by providing
a springboard for direct Arab-
Israel negotiations.
Such a conference is
necessary, he said, to serve as
a starting point for substan-
tive talks to bridge the vast
gaps that separate the
various plans and approaches
to the Arab-Israel problem —
among them, the Reagan
plan, the Allon plan, the Fand
plan and other proposals for
resolving the Arab-Israel
dispute.

New York (JTA) — While
Americans continue to sup-
port Israel, there is increas-
ing sympathy for the Pales-
tinians, according to the
heads of three national poll-
ing organizations.
The organizations, which
recently conducted surveys on
American attitudes toward
Israel in view of the Palesti-
nian uprising, said here
Wednesday that the
American public would like to
see the United States, Israel
and the Palestine Liberation
Organization open negotia-
tions for a settlement.
The spoke at a discussion
panel sponsored by the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organiza-
tions. Representatives of the
American Jewish Committee,
the American Jewish Con-
gress and the Anti-Defa-
mation League of B'nai
B'rith, which commissioned
the surveys, also participated
in the discussion.
John Marttila, of the Bos-
ton public opinion firm Mart-
tila and Kiley, who conducted
a poll last April for the
American Jewish Congress,
said that Israel's relations
with the U.S. are "strong and
secure" and that Israel is con-
sidered by the American pub-
lic as an ally.
Nevertheless, his survey
found that higher-educated

and upper-income Americans
are more critical of Israel's
policies, and, while sym-
pathetic to Israel, they also
favor a Palestinian homeland.
Douglas Schoen, of Penn
and Schoen Associates, which
conducted a survey for the
ADL in January, and David
Singer, Director of the AJC's
Information and Research
Services Department, who
commissioned a poll from the
Roper Organization in March,
shared the view that the
American public "as a group"
supports Israel.
The three pollsters agreed
that while there is a general
consensus in America that
Israel is a friend, Americans
have no monolithic view on
the complex Middle East con-
flict and hold a variety of
views on different aspects of
the problem.
Robert Lifton, president of
the AJCongress, suggested
that Americans who support
a Palestinian state are not
necessarily against Israel.
"There is no real contradic-
tory between supporters of
Israel and supporters of a
Palestinian state," he said.
Kenneth Jacobson, director
of Mideast Affairs of the ADL,
said that in his opinion, the
American public makes a
great distinction between the
Palestinians and the PLO.
