Republicans Assail Carter

The Republican National Committee said today in a statement that President Carter “has now dictated the terms for a Middle East settlement and has seriously undermined the negotiating position of the Israeli government with its neighbors.” Former Sen. William Brock of Tennessee, the committee’s chairman, said “the reversal of President Carter’s strong support of the State of Israel as he outlined it in the 1976 Presidential campaign is the most serious promise he has broken since his election.” Carter, Brock said, “must give the new leaders (of Israel) time to establish their own negotiating positions.”
