left the impression Israel will fight
any move to disband settlements. He
said all Israel political factions,
except the minority Moscow-aligned
Communist Party, opposed removal
of the outposts.
At its weekly Sunday meeting,
Israel's cabinet accused Secretary of
State Cyrus Vance of "taking sides"
against Israel in Mideast mediation.
Begin said he did "not regret one
word" of the unanimously adopted
cabinet statement, which was his
eight-month-old government's sharp-

"As I always repeated, my friends,
everything is negotiable except the
destruction of Israel . . . our peace

details." Begin said the "differences
that have a'risen over Mr. Vance's
statement have not annulled our

ASSISTANT Secretary of State
Alfred Atherton is due here next

declaration of peace principles be-
returned to Washington two weeks
ago to be on hand for Sadat's meeting
with President Carter.
Agreement has been reported on
several clauses of the declaration,
but Israel and Egypt are believed
divided on the question of Palestin-
ian rights and the extent of Israeli
withdrawal from Arab lands.
BEFORE LEAVING Paris for
Rome, the final stop on his tour,
Sadat told reporters that Atherton's
shuttle was the only avenue open to
peace and that direct Israeli-Egyp-

"For them (the University) to with-
draw (divest) would have a great
psychological impact," he said. This
impact, according to Diggs, would be
felt by other institutions-, confronted
with the same question who would be
influenced by the University's decision.
DIGGS ALSO urged American
corporations to withdraw from South
Africa. He added both economic san-
ctions and boycotts of South African
goods to the list of actions which would
be used to facilitate change there.
He discounted any adverse effects
these actions might have. Diggs said
some people "worry about hurting
those people we are trying to help.
That's a fallacy in the South African
context," he said.
According to Diggs, the number of
people who would lose their jobs as a
result of American corporate with-
drawal is inconsequential compared
"to the 18 to 20 million blacks who are
THE ISSUE of South Africa holds im-
portant implications for blacks he said.
Blacks must learn to use their political
force to effect American foreign policy
toward South Africa just as the Jews
have been able to effect policy in the
Middle East, Diggs added.
After his speech, Diggs took part in a
panel discussion with history Prof.
Harold Cruse, and political science
Prof. Joel Samoff.
At the panel discussion, Cruse rein-
forced Diggs' point that Afro-
Amer'icans must involve themselves in
U.S. foreign policy. "Black people don't
have their own foreign policy on South
Africa," complained Cruse. "They are
echoing other peoples' policy on Africa.
"UNTIL AFRO-AMERICANS are
willing to be involved in South
Africa-to the extent that some are
willing to emigrate there as part of a
foreign policy-there won't be any
policy," he said.
Samoff stressed that corporation
executives-the very people who would
be hurt by disinvestment-are influen-
cing foreign policy in South Africa.
"It's not just that these corporations at-
tempt to influence American gover-
nment policy in the way you or I might
(by writing to a congressman). They
are themselves the ones who are ap-
pointed to the positions that are making
He said U.S. investments, especially
toward manufacturing and advanced
technology, are increasing. "South
Africa is based on racial
discrimination," Samoff added. "Per
petuation of this state is dependant on
the United States."
Diggs, in response to a question from
the audience concerning organization
and financing of foreign policy in South
Africa, said, "We need an African lob-
by-we don't have one.
