A Massacre When Israel Sent Phalangists Into Beirut Camps
SRUSALEM (JTA) It was assumed that when
\el sent the Christian Phalangist forces into the Sabra
Shatila camps in West Beirut that there would be ci-
m deaths, Defense Minister Ariel Sharon told the
rial commission of inquiry
Jo one thought they (the Phalangists) would behave

^mption to the anticipation of a bloody massacre .
of us, myself included, ever for one moment in our
st dreams anticipated or feared a horror like that."

lian casualties and anti-
Ition of a massacre saw

described it.
ever, that in the years of civil
war before the IDF's entry into
Lebanon there had been in-
stances of Christian massacres of
Palestinians, citing Tel El-Zaatar
(1976) as an example. He
remarked in an aside that Amin
Gemayel, now Lebanon's Presi-
dent, has been actively involved
in that episode.
Sharon said the aim of the
IDF's entry into west Beirut
itself in the wake of President-
Elect Bashir Gemayel's assassin-
ation was "to crush" the remain-
ing (2,000) PLO terrorists there
and prevent them regrouping,
with the help of sympathetic left-
wing militias, and retaking key
areas of the city.
"We did all that was humanly
possible to prevent civilian casu-
alties," Sharon said of this IDF
action that had been decided on
by himself, Premier Menachem
Begin and Chief of Staff Gen.
Rafael Eitan at midnight, Sept.
14, several hours after the bomb
blast that killed Bashir Gemayel.
Regarding the massacre on the
night of Sept. 16 and Sept. 17 and
18, Sharon said he first heard of it
from Eitan, who phoned him at
his home on Sept. 17 at 9 p.m.
Eitan reported he had just
returned from Beirut where he
had given orders at noon that day
that the Phalangists be removed
from the two camps by 5 a.m. the
following morning (Sept. 18) and
that additional Phalangist forces
be prevented from reaching the

Barak why, having learned of the

next morning, Sharon said that it
is hard for an armed unit to with-
draw fast from a built-up area
where fighting is in progress.
This was especially the case with
the Phalangist forces who lacked
communications equipment.
A subsequent phone call to him
at 11:30 p.m., on Sept. 17, from
Israel TV correspondent Ron
Ben-Yishai, with second-hand
reports from soldiers of killings in
the camps, had added nothing

ated Eitan's information and
he (Sharon) was satisfied with
the actions taken by Eitan and

Sharon: Lebanon Shan't Be In Vain
fense Minister Ariel Sharon is
calling on world Jewry to support
Israel in its insistence on mean-
ingful security arrangements in
south Lebanon.
Sharon made bis call in an ad-
dress to 1,000 United Jewish
Appeal leaders from the United
States attending "The Gather-
ing" in Israel.
Sharon met with the group at
the West Bank settlement of
Elkana. "The Gathering" was led
oy UJA National Chairman
Robert Loup and President Her-
schel Blumberg.
Sharon told the UJA leaders
that if Israel "does not stand firm
now ... we may reach the same
situation that we had before the
war" in Lebanon. "Nobody
wants to move the Israeli troops
out of Lebanon more than we do
ourselves," he assured the visi-
tors who responded with warm
"But it would be a major mis-
take if after so many sacrifices
and so many casualties we were
to move back without solving the
problem of the threat of terrorism

Arab World Needs Mubarak
More Than He Needs Them
London Chronicle Syndicate
Despite, or even because
of, the war in Lebanon,
President Mubarak has
demonstrated that the
Arab world needs Egypt
perhaps even more than
Egypt needs its Arab
neighbors. It looks as if
the policy initiated by the
late President Sadat is now
paying off.
President'Mubarak is now at
the center of the diplomatic
stage, acting as a trusted inter-
locutor not. only between the
United States and the Arab
world, but also between the Aral
world, the PLO and Israel.
It was widely assumed that
once Egypt recovered the Sinai,
the faintest raising of tension in
the region would be exploited as a
pretext for Egypt for evading the
Camp David peace process.
YET DURING the initial
stages of the war, a number of
prominent Egyptian officials
attempted to play down the mag-
nitude of the conflict. They de-
scribed the Israeli armored thrust
into Lebanon as merely part of a
plan to capture and divert the
Litani waters to Israel a
curious theory long-held by
former Foreign Minister Riad.
The Lebanese war raged, an Arab
capital was besieged and finally
invaded, and Cairo responded
merely with routine calls for an
Israeli withdrawal. It was only
after the Sabra-Shatilla massacre
that President Mubarak recalled
Saad Mortada, his ambassador to
Israel, for "consultations."
Arab states like Jordan, Saudi
Arabia and even Syria appeared
to look for Egyptian diplomatic
intervention in order to preserve
some vestige of credibility in the
face of their military impotence,
and the rising tide of local funda-
mentalism. This diplomacy came
in two forms: the draft Franco-
Egyptian resolution to the UN
security Council during the inva-
sion, and latent coordination with
the U.S. Administration in
presenting President Reagan's
peace plan on the Middle East.
Significantly. Egypt is the
only major Arab country to have
escaped scathing rebuke by the
PLO. And throughout the war
the PLO representative, Ahmad
Sidqi Dajani, maintained the
most cordial relations with the
Egyptian government.

Egypt's formal return to the
Arab fold stems from Egyptian
determination to maintain a
dialogue and normal relations
with Israel. The plain fact that
Egypt has gained more for the
Arab cause through negotiations
in pledging Israel to grant some
form of Palestinian self-
determination, is slowly being
borne in on its neighbors. The
conclusions of the recent Fez
Summit underline this point.
President Mubarak is now
facing internal pressure that will
have a direct bearing on which
way Egypt goes from here. The
expected appointment of a vice
president is going to be an im-
portant indicator. Kamal Hassan
Ali. the present foreign minister,
is seen as the favorite. If he is ap-
pointed, the foreign policy
launched by Sadat and taken
over by Mubarak is likely to con-
tinue uninterrupted.
Another runner has emerged in
the person of Aziz Sodqi, a
former minister of industry
under Nasser. The source of
much speculation, he has been
seen regularly at public functions
with senior government officials.
The announcement of Sodqi's
possible appointment by Mub-
arak can be viewed as an attempt
to reconcile the ruling National
Democratic Party with opposi-
tion elements.
THE EGYPTIAN president
has only latterly come to appre-
ciate that his efforts in greater
democratization must inevitably-
lead to some kind of power
sharing with the country's small
but vocal opposition. And, on the
evidence of the increasing circu-
lation of the various radical party
organs, such opposition is grow-
Khaled Mohieddin's Unionist
Progressive Party, for example,
is likely to attract potent support
on two of his party's major
planks. First, rapid action to halt
Egypt'8 declining economy,
which would entail in turn, re-
versing Sadat's "Open Door"
policy that led to a catastrophic
rise in imports (Israeli exports to
Egypt amounting to $13 million
in 1981 are a likely target). Sec-
ondly, a break in realtions with
I srael.
Mubarak is alert to pervasive
fears that the 1977 food riots may
be repeated this time with fun-
damentalist participation. He has
already authorized legislative
measures to curb imports, by de-
manding that traders produce
documents showing the non-
availability of local goods before
imports are authorized.

Ugly Campaign
Arab Agents Challenge Aid to Israel
'Accountability' Called
'Hypocritical' by Theologians
A massive and ugly
propaganda campaign is
now being developed in this
country by Arab agents
and pro-Arab elements to
influence Congress to vote
against giving American
aid to Israel. The campaign
is being carried through
large advertisements in
newspaper in 50 cities.
The basic text of the costly ad
is the same for all the newspapers
accepting it not all newspapers
accept it, recognizing its mali-
ciously misleading contents
but the text is slyly adjusted to
each city to appeal to innocent
Americans locally.
Asserting that Israel "spent
$2.5 billion in three weeks to kill
people in Lebanon," the inciting
ad asks provocatively whether
the money given to Israel could
not be "better spent" for the
benefit of the population of the
city where the advertisement is
carried. The ad is placed by a
group calling itself American-
Arab Anti-Discrimination Com-
mittee and gives an address in
Washington. It urges the readers
"to write or call Congressmen
and Senators to stop American
foreign aid to Israel."
THE CAMPAIGN obviously
speculates on the fact that the
forthcoming session of Congress
will have a substantial number of
new representatives and senators
who might be influence by voters
in the cities where they are cur-
rently running for reelection. The
Arab propaganda machine is
clearly figuring that its ad may
influeence also older members of
both houses of Congress who are
not up for reelection this year but
are confused about Israel because
of the Lebanon issue.
The expensive advertisement
which is obviously funded by
Arab oil governments and by
some American firms dealing
with these governments does
not mention, naturally, that Arab
countries are also receiving sub-
stantial financial aid from the
United States.
Nor does it mention the fact
that the Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization is being financed by
Saudi Arabia to the tune of SI
million a day, and that the Soviet
government is according to a
report by the Central Intelligence
Agency allocating about $200
million annually for "national
liberation" movements abroad,
the largest part of which goes to
the PLO for terrorist activities.
ganizations are mobilizing them-
selves to fight this Arab cam-
paign. Because the inciting Arab

leadership is therefore preparing
itself for working with President
Reagan and Congress to insure
the support of the request of close
to $2.5 billion for Israel in grants
and loans in the 1983 budget.
THERE IS special need now to
demonstrate to the American
public and to Congress that it is
in America's interest to maintain
militarily and economically a
strong Israel as the only demo-
cracy in the Middle East upon
whom the U.S. can depend to th-
wart Moscow's ambition to make
inroads into the area. The Krem-
lin has already gained strong in-
fluence in Syria and Iraq. In the
Lebanon war alone, Israel de-
feated two surrogates of the So-
viet Union the PLO and Syria
thus weakening Soviet in-
terests in the area.
With the PLO and their sup-
porters now choosing Washing-
ton as their real battlefield, Jew-
ish leaders fear that while Israel's
operation in Lebanon resulted in
the military destruction of the
PLO, pro-Arab petrodollars may
obtain a PLO victory in the U.S.
Members of Congress are
aware of the close ties that have
existed for years between the
PLO leadership and the Kremlin.
At least 70 summit meetings
have taken place during the last
five years between the PLO top
leaders and Soviet military com-
THE COMPLETE backing of
the PLO by Moscow and its
satellite countries in the United
Nations and at every interna-
tional forum is also well known.
The PLO representative to the
UN, Zehdi Terzi, has admitted in
an interview, carried by the Pub-
be Broadcasting Service, that
Palestinian terrorists are getting
training on a regular basis in the
Soviet Union.
It is estimated by competent
authorities that approximately
4,000 PLO terrorists were trained
in the last few years in Soviet
training camps in the use of
weaponry, sabotage tactics, ex-
plosives, terror and guerrilla war-
fare. In the current operations in
Lebanon, Israel captured
thousands of weapons supplied
by the Soviet government to the
PLO, including enough heavy ar-
tillery pieces to furnish six
brigades, many Katyusha rocket
launchers, tanks and anti-tank
missiles, armored personnel car-
riers and more than 4,000 tons of
The PLO has made it very
clear that it stands against the
United States. Its security chief,
Abu Ayad, openly stated in an
interview quoted by the Asso-
ciated Press that the PLO would
have allowed the Soviets "a
thousand bases" against the
United States if it controlled
IN LIGHT of the intention of
the PLO to secure control of the
West Bank and the Gaxa area,
now held by Israel, and declare
itself a government in these terri-
tories, it can be realized by every
thinking American what the
United State stands to lose to the
Soviet Union by cutting military
and financial support to Israel.
Gaza, which lies on the shores of
the Mediterranean, can easily be
converted into a Soviet naval
base, if the PLO succeeds in
reaching its goal of establishing
an indendent Palestinian state.
JTA FtmlunSyndtcait
A group of 14 Christian
theologians, most of them
long-time supporters of
Israel, issued a joint state-
ment declaring that "the
voices of conscience" call-
ing for the "establishment
of accountability" regard-
ing the role of Israeli au-
thorities in the massacre of
Palestinians in west Beirut
refugee camps "are mixed
with a chorus of cynicism,
hypocrisy and bigotry."
The theologians, members of
the Israel Study Group, stated:
"The history of anti-Semitism
demonstrates that the world has
too often remained silent in the
face of atrocities except when
Israel stands accused. We have
observed that people who in the
case of Hiroshima,
Nagasaki, as in the case of
My Lai and Cambodia and the at-
rocites committed by the PLO,
have remained silent, are now
stridently raising their voices in
condemnation of Israel. We have
observed also that little or no
criticism has been levelled
against the real perpetrators of
the massacres, the Phalangists, a
Christian militia."
NOTING THAT "many of the
Jewish sister and brothers in the
U.S. and Israel have called for an
accounting for the massacres in
Lebanon regardless of where the
blame may fall," the theologians
stated that they stand with "our
Israeli friends" as they "endure
this painful soul-searching" and
at the same time "we as Chris-
tians confess our own sins of
silence, hostility and indifference
which have so often contributed
to these tragic situations."
Among those who signed the
statement at the Israel Study
Group's semi-annual meeting in
Weston Priory. Weston, VT,
several days ago, were Sisters
Rose Thering and Ann Patrick
Ware, Prof. John Pawlikowski,
Rev. Edward Flannery, and Rev.
Isaac Rottenberg.

The U.S. government is com-
mitted to Israel for the year 1963
under the Foreign Aid Bill (HR
6370). The bill provides for fl.7
million in military assistance and
'85 million in economic support.
It has already completed the
Congressional committee
process, and is awaiting action on
the floor of both the Senate and
the House when Congress re-
sumes its session. A congres-
sional debate on the bill is antici-
pated this fall.
It is feared that there may be a
tendency on the part of some
members of Congress to take a
position that Israel needs less in
terms of military supplies and
equipment because of the demon-
stration of Israel's strength in

The Hassan Statement
Morocco King Hassan's statement
that the Arab League nations are ready to accept the
existence of Israel is at variance with the facts. In the
first instance, he seems to have gone further than
any single Arab leader heretofore in offering
So that the statement causes us to wonder
whom Hassan is speaking for, or whether in fact he is
speaking for anyone at all.
More than this, the statement is grudging in its
spirit, however much further it has gone than, say,
the eight-point declaration of the Arab nations
meeting at Fez in Morocco last month who addressed
themselves to this very same issue. And if Hassan's
statement is grudging, it is not hard to imagine how
recalcitrant the eight points at Fez were.
But whether the Hassan statement does or does
not in fact represent the feelings, beliefs and
determination of the Arab League nations, it is
unacceptable for other reasons. It is predicated not
on another one of those "simple" peace-for-land
offers, but on the Rogers peace plan of the early
Nixon years in the White House. In effect, its
purpose is to sweep Israel back into the borders that
were established following the Israeli victory in their
1948 War of Liberation.
Having failed to destroy Israel at that time, the
Arabs have since then waged a systematic and
persistent war of attrition against Israel, resulting in
wars in 1956 (Sinai-Suezj, 1967 (the Six-Day War),
and 1973 (the war launched against Israel by that
brave and peaceful humanitarian, Anwar Sadat, on
Yom Kippur of that year).
Not to mention the latest campaign waged by
Israel in Lebanon to root out and send into exile the
largest part of a Palestine Liberation Organization
phalanx there that not only disturbed the peace in
Lebanon, but in Israel as well.
And having failed in all these attempts, Hassan
now talks about the "new phase" in Arab-Israeli
relations based "no longer (on) a conflict of force, but
of law and rights."
In other words, what the Arabs couldn't win on
the battlefield, now they are determined to win by
Hassan's explanation of the Fez eight-point
declaration is, in itself in large part, at variance with
President Reagan's own peace proposal of Sept. 1.
Even the President recognizes that there is no
recognition of Israel in the Fez declaration. This does
not mean that the Reaganites are not determined to
press for their own land-for peace deal, a plan little
better so far as Israel is concerned than
Rogers deal or. the Fez fizzle.
More than ever, Israel needs our support to
weather the storm. Unfortunately, so far, it has had
all too much back-biting, not only from Israelis
themselves, but from American Jews without the
guts to speak up for the Jewish nation they profess
to love.

Peter Bech Thin. Sun tanned.
Gloriously healthy looking.
Except that he is lying in a bed
in a room in Rambam Hospital.
He is one of 1,000 young Israeli
soldiers, together with Lebanese
civilians and even Syrian and
PLO prisoners who were treated
at Rambam in the first 30 days of
Operation Peace for Galilee, the
mission to free northern Israel
from 14 years of PLO katuysha
attacks, ambushes, physical and
psychological terrorism.
Peter Bech, a paratrooper, did
not parachute into southern
Lebanon. He entered by land, in a
convoy of Zeldas, armored per-
sonnel carriers.
"Outside of Sidon," he says,
"we went through a village. Not
so little. Quite a large place, very
long and narrow. It was a pretty
place. The people came out to
welcome us. They threw rice, for
good luck. My friends and I, we
were standing up in the back of
our Zelda. out in the open from
the waist up. We were moving
slowly and sometimes had to stop
for a moment. We could see their
faces and they were talking to us,
but we couldn't understand
them. We could see their eyes,
though, we made some kind of
contact with them. They would
smile. We would smile. We gave
chocolates to the children.
"Ten meters after we passed
through the end of that village,
out on a dirt road, we were am-
bushed by terrorists. We got hit
by RPGS, portable anti-tank
rockets. Our Zelda caught fire. I
was hit and I dived out of it, the
way you'd dive off a board into a
swimming pool. I couldn't walk
or run, so I just rolled away, as
far as I could, about 10-15
meters. It happened so fast.
Hassan Offers Israel
Land For Peace Proposal;
Said to be Speaking
For Arab Nations
Hassan of Morocco in effect
Saturday said that Israel
can have peace with the
Arabs only at the expense
of giving up more land.
Speaking on behalf of the
Arab League countries,
Hassan declared that the
Arabs "want to live in
peace with Israel."
On the other hand, he warned
that "there will be no recognition
of Israel" until Israel returns to
its pre-1967 borders. In effect,
Hassan offered peace only if the
Israelis return to the borders as
set forth following the War of
Independence in 1948.
OBSERVERS were quick to
note that the Moroccan king
appeared to be going further in
his offer of peace than any other
Arab leader in the past and
wondered to what extent his
proposal in fact represented the
position of the Arab League
But they also said that it
appears that the Arabs are tired
of the continued warfare and
would prefer to call it quits on
their own terms.
Hassan's statement here in
effect reflected his sentiments in
a meeting with President Reagan
on Friday, which he and four
other Arab League leaders at-

tended. Hassan said that "a new
phase" is now opening in the
ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict,
which "is no longer a conflict of
force but of law and rights."
HE SAID that his presence, as
well as the presence of the other
Arab leaders, was proof of the
Arab desire for peace. But, he
cautioned, "There are some
conditions that have to be
fulfilled for this to happen."
Prior to his Saturday press
conference here, the White House
was already issuing statements
of optimism based on President
Reagan's meeting with the Arab
leaders the day before.
Officially, the Arab delegation
headed by King Hassan had
come to Washington to explain to
Reagan the eight-point
declaration adopted at an Arab
League summit meeting in Fez,
Morocco last month. One of these
points has been "interpreted" as
an offer to recognize Israel's right
to exist.
BUT OTHER points em-
phasize the establishment of an
independent Palestinian state
under the direction of the
Palestine Liberation
Organization. Essentially, at
least two of the eight points are
in conflict with President
Reagan's own peace proposal of
Sept. 1. It was Hassan's offer of
peace-for-land on Saturday that
spurred the earlier cautious
reserve of Administration
spokesmen on Friday.
Asked at the Saturday press
conference whether the Fez
declaration meant recognition of
Israel, Hassan said: "Paragraph
seven means and shows the will
of all Arab states to have war
come to an end with all the states
of the region." This in turn
means Israel's movement back
into the 1967 borders:
"When we establish these
borders on the basis of the pre-
1967 situation, we must say these
are the borders of Israel. We
must say it undeniably. Israel
then can say that it is living in
peace with security."
Of King Hussein of Jordan,
Hassan declared that the Arabs
regard the ongoing talks between
Jordan and the PLO with an eye
toward federation as "an ab-
solute necessity."
Every man tried to save himself.
There was a lot of shooting and
smoke and the Zeldas started to
"I found myself alone in a field,
a dry field with an orchard on one
side. Both my hands were hit.
There were bullet holes. My
bones were sticking out. I got hit
in the shoulder, too. There was a
lot of blood. An RPG is meant to
destroy a tank, so think what it
does to a man. I had my gun on
me, but I couldn't move my
hands to get it. They're going to
find me and kill me, I thought,
and I tried to pull out a grenade,
but I couldn't use my hands. I
was just lying there. I saw half of
one foot was gone. It was two
o'clock on a sunny afternoon and
1 was scared I would die.
"It was a cold scene. Very cold
and strange. After maybe 20
minutes, my friend Shimshom
crawled out under fire and came
to me. They got me, I told him.
They got me really hard. 'I can
see it,' he said. 'I'll get help.' Af-
ter a while, four guys came with a
stretcher and carried me out.
They took me and some others
back to the edge of that village
we'd just come through. At least
we weren't out in the open there
and that's where I got my first
medical treatment. Then they
drove us to some spot where a
helicopter could land and the
helicopter came and brought us
here to Rambam Hospital."
I don't know what to say or do
when Peter stops talking. He's
not crying, but I am. I fiddle with
my tape recorder to hide my face
from him. Offer him a cigarette,
light it for him and one for me.
We smoke in silence for a mo-
ment. I keep seeing Peter Bech's
five good toes on a dirt road
somewhere, without the rest of
"You don't seem to be angry,"
I finally say. "Why aren't you
Incredibly, Peter smiles.
"I was one of the lucky ones.
Very, very lucky. Just in our
Zelda, of the eight of us, seven
were wounded. One waa killed.
I'm not religious. But I believe
that for a Jew, Israel is the only
place. When I came here from
Vienna, I went to kibbutz. I
worked with the animals, helping
veterinarian. I worked on the
land. That's how I learned what
it is to be an Israeli, to feel what
life is all about here, to become
part of it.
"I'm not angry at Israel or at
anybody because I'm not 100
percent anymore. Its part of the
price we have to pay. No one lives
here without going through the
bad times, the hard times"
What makes it worth it to
Peter all he went through, all
he still has in front of him .?
He searches for the right
words. Then:
"It's a question of standards,"
he says. "If you're born here, or
if you come to live here as I did,
then you have to give as much as
you can to make it better here.
Stronger. Even if you're a
student and you come for the
summer, if you work in the fields,
in the orange groves, .you give
something. And Israel gives to
you. Everyone changes here, in a
good way I think. It's a simple,
hard but very beautiful way of
life And young guys like me,
who give our feet, the guy in the
bed behind you, who is blind now
because he gave his eyes .. .
we're Jewish. That's what we
have to give to have a country of
the Jews."
Peter Bech stops talking. It is
nearly midnight. He is tired. But
he has transferred something to
me. Strengthened me. He is a
force for life. Jewish life.

Shamir Says
Israel Ready to
I Aid Costa Rica
Israeli Foreign Minister Yitz-
hak Shamir, who has just com-
pleted a series of meetings with
leaders in the U.S. government
including Secretary of State
George Shultz, commented on Is-
rael's support of the Costa Rican
government. He noted that Israel
had deposited $7 million dollars
in Costa Rica's national bank as a
gesture of good will to a country
that has been friendly to Israel
for many years.
Costa Rica, the most demo-
cratic nation in Central America
is experiencing severe financial
difficulties including a banking
crisis. As a nation that has prided
itself on having no standing
army, it is now strengthening its
internal security because of the
unrest in the region.
Commenting on American
Jewish leadership, Shamir said
that American Jews had an obli-
gation to support both the State
of Israel and its government.
"The principle is to support the
State of Israel." Shamir said.
Responding to the results of
meetings with American Jewry,
Shamir said, "almost all of them
are supporting this principle.
"We have to solve the problem
of 1.2 million Palestinian Arabs
living under our control who do
not want to live under our con-
trol," he bbUL On the subject of
the West Bank, Shamir said that
it would Be' "unthinkable to
forbid Israelis from living there."
The Israeli Foreign Minister
said that relations between the
U.S. and Israel had improved
since the end of hostilities in Leb-
anon. He said, "The U.S. is con-
vinced of positive results of this
operation. He added that Beirut

Eban said that there is a divi-
sion of opinion in Israel about is-
sues arising from the war in
"Diaspora Jews should take
pride in the fact that Israel is a
pluralistic democracy and they
(Diaspora Jewry) need not be
afraid of stating their own views
on issues. Diaspora Jews should
not be inhibited."
Eban said the dissent among
Jews is "really about two wars:
the war of the Galilee and the war
of Beirut. Each stands in its own
pattern of justification."
He added that there was no
real dissent in Israel over the war
of the Galilee. "Jews in the north
(of Israel) are entitled not only to
protection from attack but also
from the threat of attack."
Eban also assailed the news
media for applying "double
values" in discussing Israel,
stating that he would have more
respect for the press if it had
shown equal interest in terrorism
and killings in other parts of the

TORONTO The chairman of
the Committee on Foreign Af-
fairs and Security of the Israeli
Knesset defended his country's
incursion into Lebanon as neces-
sary for the elimination of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion infrastructure and for gain-
ing the security of Israel.
Eliahu Ben-Elissar, who was
also Israel's first ambassador to
Egypt, told some 1,400 delegates j
and guests at the B'nai B'rith In-'
ternational Convention here that
the Israelis now want to leave
Lebanon as soon as possible.
Complete withdrawal will take
place as soon as the remnants of
the PLO forces and Syrian army
depart, he said.
Ben-Elissar, who said his ad-
dress was a message from Israeli
Prime Minister Menachem
Begin, stated that Jews have
learned painfully from a long his-
tory that all Jews are responsible
for the survival and well-being of
each other.
"We had to enter Lebanon for
one main reason," he said. "The
PLO had turned Lebanon
which used to be an independent
sovereign state into a PLO
state, not to make it a new Pales-
tine, but to make it the base for
attacks on Israel."
Ben-Elissar told the B'nai
B'rith audience that the Begin
government wants to adhere to
the Camp David agreements and
oppose any plan that alters them.
Israel cannot give any territory
to Jordan or PLO leader Yassir
Arafat, he said.
In response to a question from
a B'nai B'rith delegate, he said
that Begin stands ready to go to
Damascus or Amman to discuss
peace with Syria or Jordan, once
those nations recognize Israel.

munities around the world,
combat anti-Semitism, and cope
more effectively with pressing
problems in American education
and society. This was announced

rence will decide on methods to
augment our support of the

is more essential than ever to
expand ORT facilities and pro-

"Conditions here in our own
country also necessitate increas-
ing our efforts in combatting
anti-Semitism and the forces of
reaction, as well as in aiding the
American public educational
system to improve."

Sharon met with the group at
the West Bank settlement of
Elkana. The gathering is led by
UJA national chairman Robert
Loup and president Herschel
leaders that if Israel "does not
stand firm now ... we may
reach the same situation that we
had before the war" in Lebanon.
"Nobody wants to move the
Israeli troops out of Lebanon
more than we do ourselves," he
assured the visitors who re-
sponded to this with warm ap-
"But it would be a major
mistake if after so many
sacrifices and so many casualties
we were to move back without
solving the problem of the threat
of terrorism (returning to)

Elkana, from which the Gush
Emunim settlers and visitors
have a wide view of the entire
coastal plain a spot where
Sharon frequently brings visitors
to explain his security views,
even though no UJA funds are
spent on the West Bank the
Defense Minister blamed the free
world for compromising with ter-
rorism instead of fighting terror-
ism. This was an allusion to the
receptions given to PLO leader
Yasir Arafat by leaders of West
European nations, including the
IN FACT, even as Sharon was
making this point, Foreign Min-
ister Claude Cheysson of France
was preparing to fly to Tunisia to
meet with Arafat as part of what
French Foreign Ministry officials
described as France's regular and
frequent contacts with ail parties
involved in the Mideast conflict.
Sharon declared that Israel
was determined that no "terrorist
bases, headquarters, units"
operate against her out of
Lebanon ever again. He said that
if the U.S. was really interested
in peace in Lebanon, it could
ensure that the Beirut govern-
ment signed a formal peace
treaty with Israel "or at least
start a peace process." Many in
the audience applauded him and
pressed him for autographs.
The UJA gathering began
Monday evening at Modlin, the
ancient birthplace ot the Mac-
cabees. The group proceeded di-
rectly there after arriving at Ben

'Arabs Will Never
Accept Israel'
Sharon UrgesWorld Jewry to Support Israel
Ben Bella, the former president of
Algeria who was imprisoned for
many years under the regime of
Houari Boumedienne, said in a
recent interview with the French
periodical "Politique Inter-
nationale" that the Arabs will
never accept the Zionist fact.
"I am an Arab and Palestine
does not only concern Palestin-
ians; it concerns all Arabs. Even
if the Palestinians are forced to
accept some kind of solution, the
Arabs in general will never accept
the State of Israel," he said.
Asked if some territorial com-
promise was possible, Ben Bella
replied that acceptance of the
Zionist being would imply a
legitimacy to a non-Arab entity
in the Mideast.
"The Zionist State by its
internal logic," said Ben Bella,
"presupposes economic, political
and cultural control over the
entire region. For us this is
synonymous with sterilization
and a loss of identity that no self-
respecting Arab could accept."
Ben Bella, released from an
Algerian form of house arrest
only a year-and-a-half ago, said
that while individual Arab lead-
ers might go to Jerusalem to con-
clude some form of peace with Is-
rael there would always be a
Moslem who would arise "to
liquidate traitors."
Using the terms "straw
and "cancer" to describe lira
Ben Bella predicted that the |i
reel problem would be solved i
about 20 years.
Quoting Israeli statistics
garding immigration and ernie.
tion, Ben Bella noted that
1961, 22,000 Jews had left M
while only 11,000 had entered t
country. The Arab populatic
was already 750,000 and growii
faster than the Jewish one.
The former Algerian pr
pointed also to the technolc0.
gap which once separated Je
and Arabs. "The Arabs
beginning to have their own i
nicians, scholars, their
brains," said Ben Bella.
"Sooner or later they will have!
the atomic bomb; this is inevi-
table. At that point we will weigh
down so heavily on the Israelis
that they will be unable to resist
us. They don't have a chance."
Asked whether this line of
thinking did not justify an Israeli
pre-emptive strike against the
I Arabs, Ben Bella said: "That's
the classical threat. We are con-
stantly told: Watch out, the Is-
raelis have nuclear weapons, they
will blow up everything. They
have a Massada complex ... ,
Well, I'll tell you what I reatifM
think; if there is no other solu-
tion, let the nuclear war take
place and let us be finished with
it once and for all."

when they occur in

declared, raised "larger"
tions concerning media
"The American media," it
points out, "are no longer mere
spectators they have become a
factor in shaping public opinion,
and, in some cases, U.S. foreign
policy. In light of these develop-
ments, do the media need to for-
mulate a new set of responsibili-
ties toward the viewing public or
are they on the right track
The "greatest inaccuracies"
were found to have occurred in
reporting casualty figures in
June, particularly during the first
10 days of the month when Israel
did not release casualty figures.
In July and August there was an
improvement in reporting of
casualties, the study noted.
OFTEN, it went on, the net-
works provided casualty totals
without a source or based on a
biased source, the Palestine Red
Crescent, an arm of the PLO, but
neglected to report updated
figures provided by observers
such as the International Com-
mittee of the Red Cross.
On the subject of censorship,
the study concluded that
although Israeli censorship was a
factor in network reporting,
treatment of it "was overplayed"
and "went beyond normal jour-
nalistic practice."
Turning to the question of
balance and fairness, ADL said
"the issue is extremely difficult
to place in perspective," adding
that "we believe that all of the
networks, no matter unwittingly
or unconsciously, contributed to
distortions and lack of
objective perspective in their
coverage of the war."
The ADL said it recognizes
that evaluating the fairness of re-
porting political and military
events raises the issue of whether
any such evaluation can be
wholly free of subjective consid-
eration. Bialkin added, "We wish
to record our awareness of the
difficulties which the news media
experience in seeking to fulfill
their responsibilities. *'

Right-Wing Posters Paper Hate Over LA
The appearance in the Los
Angeles area of a series of
six wall posters linking a
proposed state handgun
registration measure to
Nazi atrocities committed
against Jews in the Holo-
caust may be the work of a
group with ties to the ex-
tremist rightwing and
virulently anti-Semitic
Liberty Lobby organiza-
tion, according to an official
of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith
Los Angeles.
The posters have appeared on
traffic control boxes on main
boulevards in Westminster and
Huntington Beach and just hat
Monday outside the headquar-
ters of Californians Against
Street Crime, the group cam-
paigning for passage of the mea-
sure known as Proposition 16,
which would require state resi-
dents to register handguns and
restrict future sales in the state.
THE BLACK and white
posters show photographs of
Nazi storm troopers, stacked
bodies of victims killed in the
concentration camps and Nazi
execution victims. One par-
ticularly horrifying poster con-
tains a photograph of a Nazi offi-
cer with a pistol to the head of an
elderly man who is sitting on the
edge of a mass grave filled with
corpses. The poster declares in
bold letters, "Gun Registration
Equals Mass Extermination."
Other posters, for example,
show two youths being hanged
and the words, "Gun Registra-
tion Equals Youth Extermina-
tion." Another poster showing
the bodies of death camp victims
stacked in a pile, states: "Gat On
the Bang Wagon Register
Your Guns." Still another pic-
tures Nazi troops and the phrase,
"First Register Their Guns, Then
Register the Jews."
The group which is officially
campaigning against Proposition
15, Citizens Against the Gun Ini-
tiative, has denied any connec-
tion with the posters.

Continued from Page 1
called, he had ordered a full-scale
report to be submitted to him by
the army.
Sharon spoke in a small lecture
hall at the Hebrew University
west Jerusalem campus, with 46
selected pool reporters from local
and foreign media intently noting
his every word. His wile, Lily,
and close aide Uri Dan attended
the session, too.
BEFORE THE evidence
began, the commission allowed a
five-minute photo opportunity
for scores of camermen who were
later ushered out to make way for
reporters. No ordinary members
of the public were allowed in.
The Defense Minister had pre-
pared a set speech, beginning
with a defense of the Lebanon
war and the wide-ranging assault
on the PLO. He read this out and
it was plain he expected the com-
mission then to adjourn the pro-
ceedings to behind closed doors.
(He had insisted on the right to
appear in open court saying he
had "nothing to hide," but in his
speech he noted that he had much
to say of a secret nature.)
Commission chairman Kaham
and Justice Barak were plainly
not prepared to fall in with
Sharon's stragegy and they
began presenting him with
tough, detailed questions about
Christian-Palestinian relations in
Lebanon, Israel's anticipations,
and more. Repeatedly, Sharon
said he would prefer to answer
behind closed doors and re-
peatedly the commission insist*
on an answer, even if incompk
in open court.

ADL in Los Angeles, told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency in a
telephone interview that the
posters contain two small mark-
ings that might disclose the iden-
tity of the organization that has
circulated them.
Glasser said that there are two
types of markings in the bottom
right hand corner of some of the
posters. One type, he said, is a
small sized capital letter "A"
surrounded by a larger capital
letter "G." He said it was unclear
as to what this symbol repre-
But another smybol on other
posters has a picture of a small
head of a cobra with the mouth
forming the letter "C" and then
the word "COBRA." Glasser
pointed out that this symbol has
not been used before, as far as the
ADL knows. However, he
pointed out that there is an
organization called COBRA
which is led by a man who has
extensive ties to the Liberty
Lobby organization.
COBRA is an acronym for
Citizens Opposing Bigotry and
Racism in America, a Los Altos-
based organization headed by
Aric .Leavitt. Glasser told the
JTA. Leavitt, according to
Glasser, is listed on the national
board of policy for Liberty
Lobby, the anit-Semitic hate
group headed by Willis Carto.
GLASSER ALSO noted that
Leavitt is a strong supporter of
California State Senator John
Schmitz, an ultra-conservative
Republican who caused an uproar
last year whan he said at a legis-
lative hearing that opponents of a
measure to outlaw abortion in
California appeared to him as "a
sea of hard Jewish and (arguably)
female faces" and are "murder-
ous marauders." In a letter last
May to a local newspaper in the
Los Altos area, Leavitt wrote of
Jews as "dual loyalists" and
'' money changers.''
While Glasser noted that the
evidence pointing to a COBRA-
Liberty Lobby association is cir-
cumstantial, he said the Liberty
Lobby is known to have linked it-
self to conservative issues such
as gun control, abortion and
prayer in public schools.
Glasser also pointed out that
the photographs used in the
posters are duplications of
original photographs and that
the printing process for the
posters is highly professional. He
said the ADL office is trying to
trace the original photos and
their origin.

cornerstone of future negotia-
tions and this too has become an
issue that divides Israelis while
they agonize over dismissing or
welcoming some of its points.
President Reagan's Peace Plan
to some of the Israelis has three
specific points which they ap-
plaud. It recognizes that Israel
cannot go back to the 1967
borders. The United States does
not agree to an independent
Palestinian State. It agrees that
the PLO not be involved in auto-
nomy negotiations with the
Palestinians. Regarding settle-
ments on the West Bank, all of
them agreed that there must be a
cessation of building settlements
there, and they were all against
Two distinct points of view of
Zionism were discussed. Some
Israelis believe that the state
must try to control as much terri-
tory as possible, and others point
out that a smaller state but a
more Jewish state is true Zion-
ism. Any annexation of the West
Bank would incorporate l'/t mil-
lion Arabs who, with their prolific
birth-rate, would soon be a
maj ority in the state.
Professor Galia Golan, in her
evaluation of the "games Russia
plays," pointed out Russia's cyn-
ical attitude toward the PLO in
not supplying them with all the
material the PLO wanted, who
got most of it from the Saudis.
The USSR was concerned about
Assad falling from power, and
Fatah, the largest group in the
PLO, not being a Marxist group
but having an Islamic back-
ground with nationalist goals,
the USSR's position was made
realistic. Russia's main goal is
bent on the United States failing
in the Middle East and becoming
Although the PLO is crushed,
dispersed in eight of nine coun-
tries, the Palestinian question is
still on teh international agenda.
During a session in the State De-
partment, Under-Secretary of
State Engelburger put forth
some of the United States poli-
cies. Keeping Lebanon, free of
foreign forces, preventing expan-
sion of USSR objectives in the
Middle East, bringing Jordan
into negotiations, creating condi-
tions for negotiations, working
toward Arab recognition of Is-
rael, and in President Reagans
words, "creating more Egypts."
It would be impossible to as-
sess all the creative thinking that
came out of these seminars and
discussions, but suffice it to say
that all four days with these Is-
raelis and the concerned people
from Mexico, Canada, and the
United States, warmed the heart
and gladdened the soul through
the outpouring of love and con-
cern for Israel and the world Jew-
ish community.
