Egypt pulls out of Arab League;
PLO bomb rips Israeli market

By AP and Reuter
CAIRO, Egypt - Egypt, unable to
muster Arab support for its peace
treaty with Israel, announced yester-
day it was withdrawing in all but name
from the Arab League, of which it was a.
founder in 1945.
Egyptian sources said the move was
designed to undercut the expected ex-
pulsion or suspension of Egypt from the
league, which has been headquartered
here and staffed largely by Egyptians
since its inception.
"We wish to demonstrate that we still
have the upper hand and it is us, not
them, who make the decision," said one
high-level official, who declined to be
THE EGYPTIAN pullout left the
league in disarray. Secretary-General
Mahmoud Riad, an Egyptian, resigned
last week, saying the division in Arab
ranks made his job impossible.
In addition to finding new headquar-
ters and choosing a new leader, the an-
ti-Sadat states will likely have to find
new administrators to replace the
Egyptians, who held most of the civil
service jobs in the organization.
"I don't think they'll be able to carry
on, but they can try," one Egyptian of-
ficial said.
PRESIDENT Anwar Sadat's gover-
nment left the door open for future
reconciliation by stopping short of quit-
ting the 22-member organization.
But officials said Egypt would no
longer attend Arab League sessions,

pay dues or honor decisions made by
the organization.
The Foreign Ministry announced that
Egypt would "freeze" its relationship
with the league as Arab League
ministers of economy and foreign af-
fairs convened in Baghdad, Iraq, to
consider punishment for Sadat's
AT THAT MEETING, Palestinian
commando leader Yasser Arafat called
for an Arab economic boycott of the
United States, including withdrawal of
their petrodollars.
The Palestine Liberation
Organization (PLO) chief said, "It is
not sufficient to impose sanctions
against Sadat only. I call on you in the
name of the Palestinian people, the
PLO and the Arab nation to impose
sanctions against the engineer who has
planned this plot.
"I call' on you to take the most violent
measures against the United States and
its interests in the area.
SANCTIONS against the United
States should cover the economic and
trade fields and "petrodollars should be
withdrawn," he declared.
Saudi Arabia's foreign minister,
Prince Saud al Faisal, whose country
has enormous amounts of money in the
United States, sat 'impassively as
Arafat made his fervent appeal.
Outside the conference hall, tens of
thousands of Iraqis marched through
the streets to protest the peace treaty.

The official Iraq news agency put the
number of demonstrators at half a
million. Reporters following the rally
estimated that there were at least
Meanwhile, a terrorist bomb killed on
Israeli and wounded 21 others yester-
day, a jolting reminder to the Jewish
state that its peace treaty with Egypt
leaves enormous Mideast issues still
A BRIEF wave of emotion swept
Israelis as they watched televised tran-
smissions of the treaty signing in
Washington, but the country quickly
slipped back into its normal routine.
The bombing, following the usual pat-
tern of Palestinian resistance tactics,
occurred in a marketplace in the mixed
Jewish-Arab town of Lod, 15 miles east
of Tel Aviv. It came 12 hours after a
grenade was tossed into a Jerusalem
Arab coffee shop, injuring nine people.
And in Paris, a bomb exploded in a
hostel for Jewish students, wounding 28
The Palestine Liberation
Organization claimed responsibility for
both Israeli blasts, but said it was not
involved in the Paris blast, which it
deplored. A previously unknown Fren-
ch group, which said it was opposed to
the treaty, claimed responsibility for
the Paris blast.

they withdraw from Sinai as part of
the peace treaty.
Egypt is to receive military aid from
the United States for the first time as a
result of peace with Israel. The Carter
administration will ask Congressional
authority for $1.5 billion in military
credits for Egypt.
BOTH LEADERS won standing
ovations in their separate appearances,
as well as assurances of Congressional

Senator Jacob Javits, ranking
Republican on the Foreign Relations
Committee, told each leader: "We will
reward your act of faith. We, too, will
bear our responsibilities in mind."
The Israeli Embassy announced,
meanwhile, that Begin would postpone
by a week a visit to Cairo scheduled for
next Monday. A spokesman said the
delay was requested by the Egyptians
to allow more time to prepare.
The Egyptian Embassy would only

confirm the delay.
PRESIDENT CART#R, the driving
force behind the treaty signed Monday,
was host at a lunch yesterday with
Egyptian Prime Minister Mustapha
Khail. Khalil directed the peace treaty
negotiations for his country for most of
the past sik months.
White House spokesman Jody Powell
said they discussed "the continuation of
the peace process" and economic aid to
Egypt, which will total $300 million over

three years.
Begin, in his remarks in Congress on
the Palestinain issue, referring to the
coming negotiations over the West
Bank and Gaza and said: "Don't doubt
us, don't doubt our intention or resolve
to live in peace with all our neighbors.
We want to solve in a humane way the
problem of the Palestinian Arabs."
But he warned Israel would not give
up its security, saying, "The word
security means to Israel life itself."

Candidates' views range from liberal

organizations on campus, such as the

The number of people a potential can-

heavily into the decision of who the par-
ty will run on the ticket.
Party members feel a need for this
because. of the diverse nature of the
student body. This diversity also leads
them to their special graphics adver-

leaders say, to get the attention of the
students on campus without using such
political strategies.

A 20-year-old University student who
was reportedly sexually assaulted in
the Modern Languages Building Sun-
day drove off her attacker by stabbing
him in the stomach with his own knife,
police said.
Lt. William Hoover of the Ann Arbor
Police Department said the student was
approached while playing piano in the
MLB at about 2:30 p.m. The man,
described as white, about 30-years-old,
5 inches 6 feet and 130 lbs., reportedly

pulled a knife on the woman. She was
forced to partially remove her pants
and was fondled by the man before she
gained control of the knife and stabbed
him in the stomach, Hoover said.
The man immediately fled the scene
after being stabbed and the woman
reported the incident to police, Hoover
said. The assailant is being sought on a
fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct
charge. Hoover said police inquiries at
local hospitals have failed to turn up
any suspects in the assault.
