General Assembly President UNITED NATIONS, (JTA)—Salim Ahmed Salim of Tanzania, the president of ' the 34th General Assembly, began this session's proceedings last week by denouncing Israel's "senseless bombings of civilian targets" in south Lebanon and declared that the Palestinians have a right to self-determination and an independent state. The 37-year-old Ambassador also referred to the Palestine Liberation Organization as "the representative" of the Palestinian people. "The core of the Middle East problem is the continued, denial of the in- , alienable,rights of the Palestinian people to self-deter- . mination, including the right to establish -an independent state," he said. The "necessary conditions" for peace in the Mid- I east are "the realization of I that right, the refusal to give legitimacy Jo the fruits of conquest, the respect of the right of all states in the area to an independent existence," Salim said. His statement following", his election by acclamation, focussed attention of the world body's preoccupation with the Mideast and was a foretaste of the attacks which Israel will find itself under during the scheduled 113-week session. Salim, who - ' is also the Tanzanian Ambassador to Cuba and who . attended the recent com ference of non-aligned nations in Havana, praised what he termed the fresh and dynamic impetus generated by that gathering.

By Joseph Polakoff WASHINGTON, (JTA)- The Carter Administration condemned the Israel Cabinet's recent decision to allow Jews to buy land from Arabs in the administered territories, saying "it runs contrary to the spirit of the peace process itself." Faced with questions on the Arabs prohibiting-Jews from buying property in their 22 countries, the Administration backtracked to acknowledge - thatit was not assuming that a settlement over the West Bank would not prohibit Jews from buying property there. Reading a prepar2d statement, Department spokesman Hodding Carter said,. "While there is some question about the legal"implications of this action and its practical effect, it appears,to be contrary to the spirit and the intent of the peace process." He said that "what we regret in general" about the purchase decision and "other steps" are actions . that made the "negotiations in the peace process more difficult." when Multi-Media Presentation Interprets, Explains Center All community groups and organizations can now learn firsthand about the- New Jewish Center through a special multi-media presentation which explains The Jewish Center, its philosophy and activities ahd the need for a new structure. - ~'^ Grbup75~cah schedule" the' production for showings,-:to begin Nov. 1. The Center will also provide a qualified speaker, knowledgeable on the Center and the New Building project, to lead a question/answer session following the viewing of the - . multi-media presentation. All requests for this unique presentation should be directed to the Center's Communications Director, Lauri Zofan, at 231-2731. Many community members have asked "How can I help make the New Center a reality?" Along • with financial support the drive needs volunteer assistance- in all segments of the fund- raising process. Hundreds of volunteers will' be needed, beginning, next Spring (1980) in all campaign areas and classifications, including telephoning, speaking to groups and personal visitations. These individuals will participate in training sessions, to be held this winter, which will familiarize them with the New Center facility and building project. , Any community member willing to help interpret, explain and educate the Columbus Community -on the New Jewish 'Center' Building is ' asked tb call Sylvia Mellman at the Center. asked whether he based his statement on the assumption that a West Bank settlement would prohibit Jews from buying property there. He was then asked how he knows now that the Israeli decision is inimical to the peace process. Carter responded that "we don't know" what a settlement would provide on Arabs and Jews buying land but that "I am talking of the spirit" of the peace process. "I cant tell what the long-range practical effect will be." He said that the decisions "might best be reserved for the process in which we are now engaged. But while-Carter said thai 1 he was "not trying to make a legal tie whatever" about the decision and the peace process, he said that the U.S. position on the new Jewish settlements and on the.land purchase decision is "not greatly dissimilar." Meanwhile, a Jordan Embassy spokesman here confirmed that Jordan demands the death penalty for Arabs who sell West Bank land to Israelis, adding that such sales amount to "high treason."
