  • Description

    In Jerusalem on Monday (20 February), the Israeli Cabinet began a debate on whether or not to push ahead with Jewish settlements on Arab land in the face of hostile foreign opinion. Most government ministers joined in the discussion, but after five and a half hours, several had not managed to speak, so Prime Minister, Menachem Begin, adjourned the debate until Sunday (26 February).

    SYNOPSIS: The Cabinet met at the Knesset in its role of the Ministerial Defence Committee, a device which legally restricts disclosures about their discussions.

    After the adjournment Prime Minister Begin was asked how the meeting had gone.
