The Saudi press, which often reflects official thinking, called today for an all-out Arab war against Israel to regain Jerusalem and other occupied Arab lands.
The strong editorials, and similar anger elsewhere in the Arab world, came in reaction to statements by Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin yesterday that Israel never will allow Jerusalem to be divided again, withdraw to its pre-1967 borders or permit a Palestinian state.
Although the Saudi press follows government guidelines, the bellicose comments were not believed to presage any radical shift in Saudi policy. The Kingdom's conservative rulers have let it be known they plan to wait and see what the Egyptian-Israeli accord produces before making any important moves in reaction to it.
The editorials coincided with the arrival in Riyadh, the Saudi capital, of King Hussein of Jordan for talks on the future of the Middle East after the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty, scheduled for signing next week. The Jordanian monarch has strongly criticized the United States for "arm-twisting" in an attempt to win his support for the pact.
A front-page editorial in Al Jezira called on all Arab states to prepare for a long and continuous Arab war and allow radis by Palestinian guerrillas from all borders with Israel "until they turn the occupied lands into a blazing inferno for the enemy."
"We should convert all our resources into rifles. suns, tanks and fighter aircraft and turn every ablebodied man into a good soldier or a commando willing to die for this cause," the paper said.
Another Saudi paper, Al Bilad, said "Israel's intransigence" should make Arab leaders wary of th e dangers of war. "Israel is preparing to strike against the eastern and northern Arab fronts," it said, referring to the borders with Jordan and Syria. "It is being given arms and money which will be used not to make peace but to wage war for more land."
In Egypt, an opposition member of parliament was forced to leave the floor after branding the treaty a sellout and demanding a full debate before it is signed.
"The country is being sold out," he shouted, interrupting a routine discussion on another subject. "We must debate the peace treaty and give our opinion on it before the signature."
Several members of Sadat's party rushed from their sets and converged on the parliamentarian, Ahmed Nasser, an independent known for hard-line views. A motion was passed by a show of hands to eject him, and he was persuaded to walk out.
The treaty also was strongly denounced in Iraq, where Foreign Under Secretary Adbel-Hussein Jamali told ambassadors in Baghdad that it contradicts U.N. resolutions and the will of the Arab world. Foreign and finance ministers of Arab League countries are expected to meet in the Iraqi capital soon after the signing to carry out punitive measures against Egypt decided at an Arab summit meeting last November.
