Hussein jolts peace efforts; Sadat, Begin return home
WASHINGTON (AP) - The mood of triumph that
swept the capital with the successful end of the Camp
David summit was shaken Tuesday by sharp words from
Jordan's King Hussein and lingering differences over inter
pretation of the accords.
While President Carter and the leaders of Egypt and
Israel tried to maintain the momentum toward peace,
their hopes were jolted by an official announcement
in Amman that "Jordan is not obligated morally or
materially by the agreement signed at the Camp David
The announcement by a spokesman for the Jordanian
government came as Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Be
gin prepared to return home and Secretary of State Cyrus
R. Vance was to fly to Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia in
an effort to enlist support for the accords.
President Anwar Sadat of Egypt planned to fly to
Rabat, Morocco, on Wednesday to meet with King Hassan
before returning to Cairo.
White House press secretary Jody Powell said he did
not see the Jordanian statement "as any contravention
of the view expressed to President Carter, that they are
awaiting full briefing,"
Despite Hussein's reaction, there was no indication
the Arab leader, whose support is considered critical to
the success of the summit, had changed his mind about
meeting with Vance.
Before the announcement in Amman, Sadat told
senators that "if the Arab countries do not immediately
perceive the great stride forward that has been made, they
soon will come to perceive it."
An American official, who declined to be identified,
said he was not too discouraged by the Jordanian
"They haven't completely repudiated the accords,"
he said. "I still think they want to hear what we have to
say." Jordan will be Vance's first stop in the Middle East.
As expected, the Syrian reaction to the accords was
much harsher. Prime Minister Mohammed Aly Halabi said,
"Sadat has stripped himself of all Arab affinities."
Begin and Sadat spent Tuesday morning on Capitol
Hill at separate, private meetings with members of the
House and Senate.
Out of those meetings came further signs of the basic
disagreement on the touchy question of Israeli settlements
in the Sinai and on the West Bank of the Jordan River.
The Israeli Knesset or parliament is to vote within two
weeks on whether to remove the settlements from former
Arab territories, as Sadat demanded as a condition to an
Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty.
Sadat told senators that if the Knesset rejects the
proposal, it would kill the Camp David accords.
Also about 50 Jewish settlers moved into an uninhab
ited area just south of Nablus, in the occupied West Bank
of the Jordan River, during the night in defiance of Prime
Minister Menachem Begin's agreement at Camp David
to halt establishment of new settlements in the disputed
The move was sponsored by the ultra-nationalist group
Gush Emunim -Bloc of the Faithful - which said it
would establish 10 such new settlements to demonstrate
its opposition to abandonment or evacuation of existing
Radio Israel said Israeli security forces patrolling the
area did not stop the settlers and closed the paths leading
to them after they moved into the site. The settlers said it
was a Biblical site called Alon Moreh.
