Jordan to give up land
By United Press Internationaj
King Hussein has announced plans to overhaul the Jor
danian constitution to give Palestinian guerrillas, once his bit
ter enemies, the right to the Israeli-occupied half of his divided
Hussein said Tuesday he would call both houses of
parliament into special session to fulfill his promise aVlast
week's Arab summit conference to recognize guerrilla
authority over the West Bank region.
Political sources in Amman said parliament would be
dissolved after Saturday's session approves a new constitution
excluding the West Bank from Jordanian sovereignty. .
The sources said all officials of the new parliament and
cabinet will be East Bank residents. Half the current ministers
and members of parliament come from the West Bank, where
some 670,000 Palestinians
The move will be Hussein's first step in fulfilling his
agreement with other Arab leaders last week to renounce Jor
dan's claim to, West Bank lands seized by Israel in the 1967
Middle East War.
The Arab summit in Morocco called for the Palestine
Liberation Organization to set up a state on the West Bank and
Gaza strip if Israel gives up the regions. -
Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin Tuesday rejected any
dealings with , the PLO, which he branded a terrorist
organization ''whose avowed policy is to strive for Israel's
des4ruction and whose method is terrorist violence."
Rabin told parliament in Jerusalem that the Arab decisions
were "designed to disrupt any progress towards peace, to en
courage the terrorist elements and to foil any step which might
lead to peaceful coexistence with Israel."
He said IsraQl has enlarged its army and has embarked nn a
massive weapons procurement program. Diplomatic sources
in Washington said the United States is speeding up its
weapons shipnients to Israel.
