Israel Government Rejects Demand to Settle Territories Occupied in June War

A member of a right-wing faction demanded in the Knesset this afternoon that the Government take steps, in an organized manner, to settle all of the territories occupied by Israeli forces during the Six-Day War. He was answered by Foreign Minister Eban, who said that the future of occupied territories would be determined by peace treaties. Mr. Eban agreed, how-ever, to discuss the ideas advanced by S. Tamir, of the Free Center, a right-wing bloc, which were referred to the Knesset’s foreign affairs and security committee. Mr. Tamir quoted Biblical and other sources to support his contention that “all of Palestine” was promised to the Jews.
