    Background: Mrs. Golda Meir's Government survived on Tuesday (August 4) after six Gahal party members of the Israeli Coalition resigned at a Cabinet meeting in Jerusalem because of the acceptance of the U.S. Peace plan.

    Later Mr. Meir survived a no-confidence vote in the Knesset by 64 votes to 5, and told members (in Hebrew) that major military and political U.S. guarantees had persuaded Israel to endorse the plan. She said that Israel had not made any territorial commitments, nor been asked to.

    Israel now waits for the implementation of a limited cease-fire along the Suez Canal, following the official delivery in Washington of its acceptance of the U.S. plan.

    In her Knesset statement, Mrs. Meir stressed that Israel would not return to the borders existing before the 1967 Six-day war, and said the U.S. Government supported her position that there would be no withdrawal from the ceasefire lines before a binding agreement.

    The average Israeli tends to approve the Government's position, and even many supporters of Gahal's more extreme Herut-wing were opposed to quitting the Government at this stage. The Central Committee decision to quit was reached by a Slender 117 - 112 majority.
