(Studio) Labor party in Israel refuses to take part in new government to be headed by Menahem Begin. Begin revisits west bank, which he's said is part of Israel; and he won't give it up to Arabs. This could make peace settlement far more difficult.

[BEGIN - says land is by right Jewish-owned; his government will encourage settlement here.] General Arik Sharon will likely be in coalition government and endorses Israel's prior claim to all of Palestine. [SHARON - says Israel will stay there forever.] Begin's actions increase concern with regard to his government and that policy clash with Carter administration is inevitable.
