The well-known allegation that the
"homeless Palestinian people" are at
the core of the Middle East conflict is
"one of the most cruel hoaxes of the
seventies and the second half of this
century," Yehuda Blum, Israeli Am-
bassador to the United Nations (UN),
told a law school audience yesterday.
Blum told the group of about 85, most
of whom are lawyers or law students,
that three quarters of the land
designated for a Palestinian-Arab state
in the original UN Palestinian Mandate
of 1947 holds the majority of the
Palestinian people already. That parcel
is the kingdom of Jordan, "the only
thing non-Palestinian. . . is the king,"
Blum, who was a senior research
scholar in the University law school in
1969, said that half the membership of
Jordan's cabinet and Parliament, and
most of its popultion, is Palestinian.
This, he said, is evidence of the
fulfillment of the objective of a
Palestinian homeland. If the king.were
PLO head Yasssir Arafat, "it would
become obvious to the outside world
that Jordan is a Palestinian state,"
"This is not the biased Israeli view,"
Blum added. Jordan's King Hussein
imparted these views in an interview
with West Germans a few years ago,
Blum said, "and he pointed out that
there is no such thing as a separate
Blum said after the Six Day War in
1967 the Arab League realized military
avenues were no longer practical and
decided to employ political and
diplomatic resources. So it "invented
the Palestinian identity" in order to
juxtapose it to Israeli and other Arab
nations' interests, the former Inter-
national Law professor added.
WHEN THE UN Security, Council
passed Resolution 242, in November
1967, laying down the "guidelines for
peace in the Middle East. .. there was
no indication to the existence of
homeless Palestinian people," Blum
pointed out. In the fall of 1969,
"inalienable rights to self-
determination" for Palestinians were
first mentioned before the General
Assembly, Blum said.

LISBON, Portugal (AP) - Two
tel'rorists wounded Israel's am-
bagsador to Portugal and killed his
b6lyguard yesterday in a grenade and
niachine gun ambush. Three other per-
s6hs were injured..
'Portuguese national radio said it
re'.eived a telephone call from a
previously unheard of group, the Inter-
n'tional Militant Workers, claiming
responsibility for the attack.
The radio said the caller claimed the
group fought against "capitalism and
imrperialism as represented by
Zionists" and that other, unspecified at-
tavks would follow.
THE TWO unmasked men attacked
Ambassador Ephriam Eldar's car as it
drove up to the Israeli chancellery
shortly before 10 a.m.
A grenade fragment hit the am-
bassador's bodyguard in the head,
killing him instantly. Police said the 55-
year-old Eldar was saved by staying in
the car. But a bullet broke a bone in his
right forearm, another wounded him in
the thigh, and he suffered shrapnel
wounds along the right side of his body.
Shrapnel hit a female passerby in the
face, endangering her sight, and bullets
wounded the ambassador's driver and
a Portuguese guard at the embassy
door, police said.
Eldar underwent surgery in Lisbon's
Santa Maria Hospital, where doctors
described his condition as satisfactory.
"Jarrett's solo art remains a
unique entity in music, and The
Kdln Concert is its most moving,
most telling exposition."
"He doesn't sound like any other
guitarist, and at the rate he's
developing, other guitarists are
going to have a tough time
sounding like him."
