JERUSALEM (Aug. 25)
The Jordanian radio last night sharply criticized the meeting of West Bank mayors held last week at Beit Sahur near Bethlehem to discuss West Bank economic problems. After several days of silence on the subject, an Amman radio commentator described the meeting as having been organized by “Israel and the Palestine terms groups,” He added that both are interested in forming a Palestinian state on the West Bank. Israel, he commented, is interested in a puppet regime so that later she can negotiate with it the refugee question. The terrorists, he continued, want a state on the West Bank after having failed in their attempt to take over the East Bank, that is. Jordan itself.
