Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE tr.lBRIDGE HERALD Monday, July S 1971 Egypt wants territory back to reopen Suez By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Egypt said Sunday night that it will agree to reopen the Suez canal only if Israel agrees lo withdraw from all territory oc- cupied in the 19G7 war. A joint Egyptian-Soviet com- munique said "the problem of opening the Suez canal for inter- national shipping cannot be solve-1 in isolation from other problems of the settlement and should be in context with an agreement on the withdrawal of all Israeli troops" to the fron- tiers existing before the June. 1967, war. The communique was issued at the end of a five-day visit to Moscow by Foreign Minister Matmoud Riad of Egypt. Meanwhile, the Tel Aviv newspaper Haaretz says that Joseph Sisco, the United States assistant secretary of state for the Middle East, probably will visit Israel in mid-July with new proposals for a partial Is- raeli-Egyptian settlement. A foreign ministry spokesman said the visit is "possible." Haaret? does not elaborate on the proposals Sisco would bring, but presumably they arc an other step in State Secretary William P. Rogers's attempt to promote an agreement for re opening the Suez canal. His ear Her proposal for such an agree- ment foundered on Israel's op- position to Egyptian troops re- placing the Israelis on the eas jank of the canal and Egypt's mounting insistence that the Is- raelis agree to withdraw from all the occupied territories. 'LAN LEAGUE HQ Also in Tel Aviv, Use militant Jewish Defence League an- nounced that it will open a neadquarters in Israel. A repre- sentative, Neil Kothernberg of New York, told a news confer- ence that Rabbi Meir Kabane, the league's leader and New Yorker, will immigrate 10 Israel when the U.S. government re- turns his passport to him. Premier Golda Meir and other Israeli officials have cond- mened the league for its cam- paign Soviet of violence on behalf of said the organization's actions in Israel will be non-violent. Ha said the league will try lo "educate underprivileged Jews in ienns of one entity, not div- ided groups but one nation of equals." He said Israel "is being ripped apart by disunity." "It could stand more love be- tween Jews." He cited the Black Panthers of Israel, emigrants from Asia and Africa who say they are discriminated against. The U.S. government confis- cated Rabbi Kahane's passport because it feared he might jump bail and not appear for his trial in the United States on charges of harassing Soviet dip- Jews, but Rothenberg lomats and inciting to violence. Sato makes big cabinet reshuffle Israel makes offer TEL AVIV (Reuter) The mass-circulation evening news- paper Maariv says that Israel has told the United States it is prepared to pull back from the Suez canal if U.S. troops are sent in to ensure that Egyptian troops do not cross the water- way. The Paris correspondent of the newspaper attributes the re- port to "an American diplo- matic whom he quotes as saying also that the United States has offered to refund to Israel the cost of the Bar Lev Suez canal defence line if it pulls back as part of an interim solution to reopen the water- way. The source is quoted as say- ing that although Israel has not yet taken up the offer, it has already passed on to Washing- ton the estimated cost o[ the fortified line.

Subchan, leader of the Mos- em party Nahdatul Ulama, said reports of Gol- [arites were coming in from many parts of the vast archipel- igo. His party was running sec- nd but far behind. The acting chairman of the PNI, the Indonesian Nationalist >arty which the late President jukarno founded, said several PNI officials were arrested in the West Java town of Subang because votes had been cist there for the party. Results trickling in gave Gol- 50 per cent of the vote in East Java, 84 per cent in Bali' ,nd 70 per cent to West Java. The voting Saturday was for national provincial and local parliaments. Because of poor communications among the hundreds of islands, final re- turns are not expected for sev- eral weeks. Golkar is a coalition of groups put together by the military and the government in an effort to push the nine political parties into the background. A total of 360 seats in the national parliament were at stake in the election, and it ap- peared that Golkar would far exceed its minimum goal of 131 nf them. After the election, President Suharto will appoint another 100 members, and all of them will be Gblkarites.
