Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 24, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, February 24, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 5 Cautious Arab acceptance of Israel may lead to Mideast stability By HENRY TANNER New York Times Service CAIRO Foreign diplomats as well as Arab officials and intellectuals feel that a far- reaching psychological change has taken place in the Arab world and that there is now a growing, but still conditional, willingness to accept the. existence of Israel. The condition and it is a major one is, in the words of an Egyptian journalist, "Israeli reciprocity" that is, Israel's willingness to withdraw to the lines of before the 1967 war and to accept the right of the Palestinians to create their own state. At the government level, the single most im- portant change came after the war in October, 1973, when Syria, after years of refusal, accepted the United Nations Security Council resolution 242 of Nov. which, in addition to calling for Israeli withdrawal, gave each country in the area the right to independent ex- istence. Only Libya and, to a lesser extent, Iraq, remain opposed to that resolution. One of the crucial questions as yet unanswered is whether the Palestine Liberation Organiza- tion might shift to a policy of accepting Israel within the lines that existed before the 1967 war. The changing attitudes of Arab citizens are most often reflected in the new matter-of-fact way they speak about Israel. Some of the changes may seem ominous to Israel because they stem from the circumstance that many Arabs for the first time now think that they can influence the policies of Israel and "keep it within bounds." Some intellectuals in Cairo and Damascus say that the Arabs can afford peace and that the Israelis cannot unless they are willing to become small country like any other." In a peaceful Middle East, these Arab intellec- tuals contend, Israel will be unable to mobilize world public opinion, will be unable to obtain billions of dollars in weapons as gifts, and will be less attractive than in the past for large-scale Jewish immigration from the Soviet Union and Latin America. "The vision of an Israel relying on its own resources and living within permanent inter- nationally recognized borders that cannot be pushed outward as in the past, holds no terror for a Cairo university professor com- mented. He made it clear that his changing attitude depended on further progress toward peace but insisted, as did other intellectuals and jour- nalists in Arab capitals nearest Israel, that the change had nothing to do with the present diplomatic maneuvering. A Lebanese wrote a book a year ago proposing a federation of Israel, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and a new Palestinian state as the most logical grouping in the Middle .East from economic, cultural and geographic points of His friends persuaded him that it would be un- wise and perhaps unsafe to submit his manuscript to a publisher as yet. President Anwar El-Sadat of Egypt has gone further than any Arab leader in accepting the ex- istence of Israel. In a speech last year, he declared that the critics of his pro-American policy kept charging that it was the United, States that protected the existence of Israel. His answer, he said, was that so did the Soviet Union and the rest of the international community and that any Arab who refused to see this was like an ostrich sticking his head into the sand. There has been no visible grassroots opposi- tion in Egypt to such statements by the president. The government's domestic troubles are mainly economic and social. Criticism of foreign policy was strikingly absent from recent demonstrations by workers and students. In Damascus, an adviser to President Hafez S Al-Assad told a visitor: "Isn't it curious that the Arabs now are clamoring for direct negotiations fa in Geneva and that the Israelis don't want to S come? In the past the Israelis always said that if 3 only the Arabs would be willing to enter direct negotiations it could be regarded as de facto recognition and hence a giant step toward g peace." i'i Newspapers in Egypt and Syria now regularly print Western news agency dispatches from Tel Aviv identifying Israeli officials respectfully by Si their titles and reporting Israeli government ac- tivities as they do political events in any other country. Before 1973, newspapers in both countries would report the Israeli scene in terms 55 of the activities of various "Zionist gangs." g The biggest question involves the Palestinians. Rigid orthodoxy paves way for Tito successor By MALCOLM W. BROWNE New York Times Service BELGRADE Yugoslav President Tito, 82 years old and revered among nonalign- ed nations as the patriarch of Marxism free from Soviet influence, in what must be the last years of his rule, is promulgating laws and prac- tices that are moving this na- tion toward a Marxist orthodoxy that may be more rigid than that in the Soviet Union. One such law, already enacted, prohibits the "spreading of false news" and the "disparaging of the state organs." But an amendment before the Serbian Assembly would extend the ban to cover "hostile outbursts" at public gatherings, family religious feasts, in shops, public buses and even in private apartments. During the past year, scores of suspected political activists have been arrested. Among them was a group of Com- munists in Montenegro who were sentenced to terms of up to 14 years in prison for allegedly plotting to form a rival Communist party with Ask About The NEW INVISIBLE Multicocal Lens (MULTILUX) links to Moscow. Apparently to balance this, the arrest was also ordered of Mihajlo Mihajlov, an emigrant, Russian known in the West for his anti Soviet writings. Mihajlov, who in re- cent years had been deprived of employment in Yugoslavia, forbidden to leave the country, and finally evicted from his modest apartment by the government, has been in jail since last fall, and is scheduled to come to trial later this month on charges of "spreading hostile propagan- da." Last month, on Tito's orders, the Communist party broke the long standing tradition of autonomous ad- ministration for Yugoslav un- iversities (a doctrine the Communists themselves had espoused before they came to Serbian authorities stepped directly into the ad- ministration of Belgrade University, and ousted eight professors. The professors were removed during the un- iversity's winter vacation so as to head off possible student protests. All eight are Marxists and former party members. They belong to a circle of academic leftist dissidents associated with the Zagrep periodical Praxis. Praxis is the only legal publication in Yugoslavia regularly criticiz- ing the party and government. It has often argued, for ex- ample, that "self the economic and political system sup- posedly unique to Yugoslavia, is not really practiced. It appears that Praxis will now be suppressed. Why has all this happened? Yugoslav observers agree that the growing momentum toward authoritarian "centralist" rule comes directly from Tito. As he grows older, he has sought to tighten up every aspect of Yugoslav society, particularly the organization and authority of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia (Communist He has been demanding a kind of moral hardening, a rejection of modern (and decadent) "liberalist" thinking, and a return to Marxist purity. There is a belief among some Yugoslavs (and a good many foreign diplomats) that in the confusion after Tito dies, American and Soviet ar- mies could find themselves at war over conflicting interests in the Balkans. Certainly, both Moscow and Washington have seemed to be signalling in re- cent months that each would regard domination of Yugoslavia by the other as in- tolerable. But in the minds of more orthodox Yugoslav Com- munists, of whom Tito is one, the greater danger results from Yugoslavia's open borders and powerful economic links with the West, which they see as facilitating a softening or even rotting of Marxist Leninist purity at home.. Tito is counting on the party MORE COLLEGE BLOCK BUSINESS PROGRAMMING (DAYTIME) The School of Continuing Education Is striving to offer a more diversified business program this winter.

It is widely assumed that his favorite for the succession would be Edward Kardelj, a colorless party theoretician with views identical to Tito's but whose complicated speeches on party dialectics are regarded by many as practically incomprehensible.. Plot claimed LONDON (AP) Britain's Communist party newspaper, The Morning Star, says the Queen's lawyers, Conser- vative party leaders and the Bank of England worked together to keep her private wealth a secret. Buckingham Palace and the government declined comment. Unofficial estimates of the monarch's wealth range from million to million. Apart from a royal inheritance, such as a million art collection, the Queen receives a allowance from the state every year. The Star says that it has photostats of government documents proving the reported cover-up plan, and publishes what it said were parts of two of the documents. It says' the documents show- ed the Conservative govern- ment of former prime minister Edward Heath devis- ed a formula to ensure the Royal Family's private interests in companies were disclosed.
