The which has not yet been severely tried by the is not believed to be prepared to accept major concessions on Middle East policy that would weaken Israel. it has remained silent as the government has beaten a cautious retreat from its pro-Israel attitude at the start of the October war. The backdown has included signing the European Common Market declaration of Nov 6 endorsing the return to the Arabs of territories cap- tured in the 1967 war. There has also been polite recogni- tion of the rights of the Palestinians in recent govern- ment declarations. At the demand of Arab gunmen who hijacked a KLM Royal Dutch Airline jumbo jet over Iraq last the government went a step further in the hi- jackers that it would transportation of weapons or volunteers to and would not permit the opening of offices or camps for Soviet Jews going to Israel. Dutch officials have pointed out that these pledges do not represent a change in Dutch policy. So far the pledges have not satisfied the who seek a more though still change in Dutch policy.

These are South Africa and against which the Arab leaders announced an embargo yesterday. With a need to retain solidarity in the Atlantic Alliance and especially with the United the Netherlands has avoided tak- ing the lead in Europe on the issue of recognizing the independence of a part of Por- tugal's African territory Portugal is a North Atlantic Treaty Organization ally.
