Israeli chorus against British plan

Israeli Deputy Premier Yigael Yadin accused Britain Thursday of trying to disrupt the Israeli-Egyptian peace process by making a diplomatic initiative to placate the Palestine Liberation Organization. In an address to the Hebrew Union College here, Mr. Yadin joined the growing chorus of Israeli resentment over British ideas on creating a revised version of Security Council Resolution 242, the standard United Nations formula for Middle East Peace.

The British sponsored Resolution 242 after the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, it specified Israeli withdrawal from occupied Arab land and spoke of the right of all Middle Eastern states to live within "secure and recognized boundaries." Israel and the Arab lands accepted the resolution, but the PLO did not, because it made only brief mention of the Palestinian question.

The British proposals, as understood by Israeli officials, is to introduce new wording with a clear reference to the right of Palestinians to determine their own future.
