  • Description

    AN APPEAL TO ISRAEL TO END ITS POLICY OF BLOWING UP HOUSES IN RETALIATION FOR GUERRILLA ACTIVITIES WAS MADE YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) BY THE ARAB MAYOR OF ISRAELI-OCCUPIED GAZA, MR. RAJIB EL-ALAMI, DURING A VISIT TO JERUSALEM. IT WAS THE FIRST TIME HE HAD BEEN TO JERUSALEM SINCE THE SIX-DAY WAR IN 1967. PREVIOUSLY HE HAS MAINTAINED A PRINCIPLE OF NOT ENTERING ISRAEL.

    THE MAYOR IS BELIEVED TO HAVE TOLD THE DEPUTY SPEAKER OF THE ISRAELI KNESSET (PARLIAMENT), MR. YITZHAK NAVON, THAT ONLY THE GUERRILLAS SHOULD BE PUNISHED, NOT OTHER OCCUPANTS OF HOUSES CONCERNED.

    DURING HIS VISIT MR. EL-ALAMI IS BELIEVED TO HAVE RAISED OTHER MUNICIPAL AND PERSONAL COMPLAINTS AS WELL.

    THE MEETING WAS REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN CONDUCTED IN A CORDIAL ATMOSPHERE AND AFTER DISCUSSIONS, THE MAYOR AND HIS DELEGATION WERE TAKEN ON A TOUR OF THE KNESSET BUILDINGS.

    NO CAMERAS WERE PERMITTED AT THE MEETING, BUT LATER THE MAYOR AGREED TO BE PHOTOGRAPHED BEING SHOWN AROUND THE HOUSE.

    AFTER SEEING THE PLENUM, THE MAYOR VISITED THE KNESSET LIBRARY, WHERE HE SAW AN ARABIC NEWSPAPER PRINTED IN ISRAEL, AND THE SCROLLS OF LAW.

    THE MAYOR LATER LEFT TO RETURN TO THE GAZA STRIP.
