Sentiment JERUSALEM (WNS) - Premier Yitzhak Rabin has urged Egyptian President Anwar Sadat to hold direct talks with him on a Middle East peace settlement. Directing his remarks to Sadat, Rabin declared: "I have heard what you have had to say to others. Now - what do you have to say to us? You have explained your willingness to make peace with American sena¬ tors, congressmen and other visitors. You have talked about peace with NBC, CBS and ABC. If you are serious about peace let us negotiate. Please let me hear from you." UNITED NATIONS. (WNS) - The report by the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights.of the Palestinian People which calls for Israel to evacu¬ ate all occupied territory by June 1,1977 was approved Ijy the General Assembly Nov. 24 by a 90-16 vote with 30 abstentions. The report by the 20-member committee also recommends allowing Palestinian refugees to re¬ turn to their former homes or to be compensated for loss of property and urges the creation of a Palestinian State under the aegis of the Palestine Liberation Or¬ ganization. The General Assembly resolution urged the Security Council to act as soon as possible to imple¬ ment the recommendations. The Council earlier this year rejected the report when the United States vetoed it.

About a week later, on Nov. 15, the pair lunched with five other Jews at the invitation of Tartt Bell, director of the American ..Friends Service Committee's Washington public affairs program, at the Committee's quarters. Those invited to the two gatherings were mainly offi¬ cials,-some of high rank, of major J.ewjsh organizations, but several emphasized to individuals and not as repre¬ sentatives of their organi¬ zations. PLO officials had met previously in Paris with 'non-official but politically active Israelis. Bell declined to go into de¬ tails about the meeting or to identify those present. He said he was "delighted to hear signals of change in the position of the PLO," which he described as being aimed at a two-state solution and acceptance of a "secure Israel."

Since U.S. policy is not to have official contacts with the PLO, whose charter calls for Israel's destruction, and the Israeli government has vowed never to have deal¬ ings with it regardless of any change it might make in its public position, Jews avail¬ able for interviews with JTA were aked why they decided to meet with the PLO of¬ ficials. "It was useful for us to hear what they had to say and to tell them what we think," one replied.
