  • Description

    PRESIDENT BOURGUIBA OF TUNISIA HAS PROPOSED TALKS BETWEEN THE ARABS AND ISRAELIS IN AN ATTEMPT TO END THEIR LONG FEUD OVER THE PALESTINE QUESTION. HE SAID THEY SHOULD SETTLE THEIR DIFFERENCES ALONG THE LINES OF A UNITED NATIONS SUGGESTION 17 YEARS AGO - UNDER WHICH ISRAEL WOULD SET ASIDE PART OF ITS TERRITORY FOR THE REPATRIATION OF ARAB REFUGEES WHO FLED THE COUNTRY WHEN THE JEWISH STATE WAS FORMED IN 1948. THE PROPOSAL CAME SOON AFTER HE GAVE A TELEVISION INTERVIEW IN TUNIS.

    (PRESIDENT BOURGUIBA'S PROPOSAL DREW A STORM OF CRITICISM FROM OTHER ARAB COUNTRIES. ONE CAIRO NEWSPAPER SAID HE HAD "GONE RAVING MAD," WHILE A DAMASCUS PUBLICATION SAID HIS WAS THE "VOICE OF TREASON").
