JERUSALEM (A') - The Is-
raeli parliament yesterday
crushed a leftist move to halt
settlement of Jews on the oc-
cupied West Bank of the Jor-
dan River.
The 120-member parliament,
or Knesset, gave the leftist pro-
posal only two votes despite the
diplomatic storm that has
blown up between the United
States and. Israel over settle-
ment policy. The Knesset also
approved the results of Begin's
White House talks last week by
a 59-36 vote with 13 obsten-
tions.
IN A FLOOR speech before
the vote, Begin expressed "deep
sorrow and disappointment" in
U. S. criticism of Israeli policy
of settling Jews on the West
Bank.
The prime minister also an-
nounced that the cabinet had
empowered its committee on
settlement "to decide on estab-
lishing new settlements" in the
zone.
In a decision that Begin said
was acceptable to the govern-
ment, a committee Tuesday
gave full legal status to three
settlements founded in 1975 by
Jewish nationalists without the
approval of the government of
Begin's predecessor, Yitzhak
Rabin.
THE U. S. State Department,
under Secretary Cyrus Vance,
objected Tuesday to the com-
mittee action, calling it "an
obstacle to peace."

Asked for comment Wednes-
day, Carter said: "The state-
ment the secretary' of state
made speaks for me."
However, a group of senators
from the President's party who
met with him over breakfast
pictured him as still optimistic
on the Middle East.
SEN. GEORGE McGovern (D-
S.D.), said Carter expressed "a
more optimistic view than I
would have expected," and,
Sen. Howard Metzenbaum, (D-
Ohio), said Carter's attitude to-
ward the prospect of Middle
East negotiations was "very
positive."
Begin, in his 90 - minute
speech, said the U. S. com-
plaint over recognition of the
settlements "had no justifica-
tion" and voiced "deep disap-
pointment and deep sorrow over
the announcement."
He said Israel's settlement
policy "has not dispossessed
and will not dispossess a single
Arab of his land."

ISRAELI ARMED forces ra-
dio quoted a government source
as saying the committee would
decide on new West Bank set-
tlement before Geneva Mid-
east peace talks reconvene, pos-
sibly in October.
Opposition leader Shimon
Peres, who as defense minister
in Rabin's Labor government
tacitly supported the three set-
tlements in dispute, called the
timing of the decision to recog-
nize them "unfortunate," a
term also used by U. N. Secre-
tary - General Kurt Waldheim.
A spokesman at U. N. head-
quarters in -New York said
Waldheim, who is in Vienna,
added: "This cannot but affect
the current efforts to resume
the negotiating process in the
Middle East."
The first manned moon land-
ing was made by Apollo 11 in
July, 1969. The first man to
walk on the moon was astro-
naut Neil Armstrong. Other
crew members were Edwin Al-
drin and Michael Collins.
