(Studio) Comment with regard to potential for trouble presented by Israeli settlements on west bank, constituting annexation of area. In former Israeli government, Moshe Dayan began settlements and now as foreign minister in new government, he is visiting with President Carter to defend settlements there and those planned. Israeli settlements on west bank are against United States policy, endanger relations with Arabs and are leading to inevitable confrontation between United States and Israel. Potential for war faces United States in either letting settlements stand or confronting Israel; effects of war in Mid. East on West world noted. If United States confronts Israel, conservatives against Panama Canal treaty could get support from Israeli lobby in United States; if treaty defeated, United States faces guerrilla war in South American
