Shultz Loses No Time
Tackling Problems at Helm
(JTA) George Shultz
spent his first full days as
Secretary of State in unin-
terrupted conferences on
the Middle East situation
with top State Department
officials and experts on the
region, including former
Secretary of State Henry
Earlier, Shultz met for a
half hour with Israeli Am-
bassador Moshe Arens, the
first envoy summoned to
the State Department after
the new Secretary of State
was sworn in Friday. A
short while later he met
with the Egyptian Ambas-
sador, Ashraf Ghorbal.
State Department sources in-
dicated that Shultz was losing no
time tackling Middle East prob-
lems because he perceived oppor-
tunities arising from the com-
plexities of rapidly unfolding
events in that region. The sources
hinted that Shultz did not want
to become bogged down in the
stalemate over the evacuation of
the Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization from west Beirut.
HE WAS expected to press for
an Arab solution to the problem
of a haven for the 5,000-6,000
PLO fighters when he met here
Tuesday with the Foreign Minis-
ters of Saudi Arabia and Syria,
Prince Saud al-Faisal and Abdel

Pathological Reaction
Israel Spreading Doubts About War at Home. Abroad
f ideon Hausner
Some of the reactions in Israel
to the Peace for Galilee operation
are now bordering on the patho-
logical. Instead of taking pride in
having performed a supreme
service for the international com-
munity by suppressing a danger-
ous evil and thereby also se-
curing peace for ourselves we
are spreading doubts at home
and abroad about the justice of
our activity. And in the process,
we are weakening our army and
population and strengthening
our numerous foes by protest
It has become increasingly
clear over the years that the PLO
is the centers of a cancerous
growth which has metastasized
all over the world. All terrorists
believe that their aims can best
be achieved by violence and in-
timidation: their aim is to impose
their will by force, as an alterna-
tive to persuasion, negotiation
and agreement.
IN SO FAR as Israel is con-
cerned, the PLO has defined its
goal as "frustrating Zionism and

Statement of Sen. Moynihan
At Rally at the UNations
I regret that obligations in'
Washington prevented me from
being with you on June 18. Your
gathering is one of great
significance for all of us who
cherish the value of human
freedom and hope for a just and
complete peace between nations.
In the past few weeks the State
of Israel has demonstrated her
willingness to make historically
unprecedented sacrifices for the'
cause of peace. For the sake of
peace on her southern border Is-
rael gave back every square inch
of disputed area that she had
twice captured in bloody defen-
sive wars. And for the sake of
peace on her northern border she
has after years of provocation
and random terror shown a
willingness to act decisively and
effectively with the forces that
have nearly destroyed the once
proud and peaceful nation of
Much of the world has chosen
to view Israel's actions in Leba-
non through the prism of selec-
tive morality. Many were silent
when Syrian troops and armed
radical bands occupied the coun-
try. They were silent when Syrian
missiles were placed in Lebanon.
They were silent when death and
destruction rained down on Is-
raeli settlements. They were even
silent when the Syrian regime
destroyed one of its own cities in
response to entrenched political
and religious opposition.
But the world finds its collec-
tive voice when Israel sets out to
liberate Lebanon from those who
would use her as a pawn in their
political machinations and let
us never forget that the introduc-
tion of foreign troops in Lebanon
would not have been possible
without the provision of weapons
by the Soviet Union.
The time has come for all of us
to insist that our government
play a leading role in ensuring the
reconstruction of the pluralist,
democratic Lebanon free from
foreign occupation. Israel has
sacrificed the finest of her sons
and daughters toward this end.
American diplomacy must help
ensure that this is the last time
that the gallant warriors of the
Israeli Defense Forces are ever
called upon to pay such a terrible

You may have noticed some crumbs or Diet Pepsi stains on
:: this particular column. That is due to the fact that this one was
:: written in the prone position as I "re-cooped" from a recent ill-
:: ness (really, I just wanted some extra attention and to get out of
:: housework!) Anyhow, that's neither here nor there, but what is
f important is the demonstrations of "giving" that have crossed
:: in front of my eyes over the last two weeks. I never doubted that
5 I had friends but never did I dream of how much thev cared
:: and how quickly they were there when I needed them. You can
jH bet, I am feeling a plethora of emotions right now from lucky,
:: to special, to grateful. However, most of all, this experience has
J:| truly given me a renewed sense of the importance of giving of
:: oneself. I don't mean just helping a sick friend, but rather, a
$: realm much greater than that. I m talking about people helping
:: people and most of all, Jews helping Jews. Afterall, if we
: don't have each other to depend on then what do we have? So
:: won't you benefit from my experience too? This year, give just a
:: little more to that organization or to that person who asks for
$ your help. How about it?
fi We are thrilled to learn of the recent birth of Avraham Nathan
:: Silverman, first child of Bruce and Vikki Silverman. Avi, as he
:: will be called, made his appearance on Monday, June 21, at 4:30
p.m., at Womens Hospital. Avi weighed 7 lb. 14 ounces and was
;:: 21" long. Proud grandparents are Tampans Golda and Gordon
if: Brunhild and Janet Silverman. Also, this "little fellow" was
:: proudly named in memory of his late grandfather, Al Silverman.
; Tonight, Avi will be named during services at Congregation
0m Schaarai Zedek. Sharing in this very special occasion will be
:: greatgrandparents Rosalind Friend, of Hallendale, Mr. and
Mrs. Herman Silverman, of W. Palm Beach, and Baret Kapelow,
of Providence, Rhode Island. Also, Vikki's cousin from
California, who was Vikki's main-of-honor in her wedding, Karen
Fruchter, will be here not only for the naming, but for the whole
Summer to help Vikki with the new baby. Avi's godparents are
Karen Fruchter and Jeff Sugarman (formerly of Tampa but
now residing in Washington, D.C. and who will also be in town
tonight). Congratulations to all of you on this joyous event.
For Activists
Action Due
Attorney General Yitzhak Zamir
has deckled to bring criminal ac-
tion against a number of the most
violent activists who sought to
halo Israel's withdrawal from the
Yamit area. He will prosecute
those against whom there is
strong evidence of their having
physically assaulted Israel De-
fense Force personnel.
In taking this course, Zamir is
in effect rejecting the proposal of
Premier Menachem Begin to
"forgive and forget" the Yamit
drama in a gesture of national
unity. Sources close to the Attor-
ney General said he felt that as-
sau ts against army personnel
were an undermining of the very
foundation of the rule of law and
could not go unpunished.
Fourteen year old Craig Rothburd, son of Dr. Michael and
Judy Rothburd, decided to forego the usual Summer activities
this year and occupy his time in a really unique way. Craig was
among 60 students selected to participate in a three week
Marine Biology program, run by Hillsborough Community Col-
lege, and sponsored by Hillsborough County. Craig, who is on
the high honor roll and will be entering the ninth grade at Cole-
man Jt. High School, had earned an "A" in science this past
school year. Therefore, his science teacher submitted his name in
hopes he would be selected to participate in this terrific Marine
Biology program. Four days of each week the students work out
in the field, including most of the Gulf area on the West Coast of
Florida. They study and participate in experiments involving
the Bay area environment, the mud flats, Cockroach Bay, etc.
Then one day of each week, the students work in the lab at Jef-
ferson High School. In addition to having a marvelous Summer,
Craig will receive one-half of a college credit for successfully
completing this program. Sounds, like a fantastic three weeks
Craig (and maybe a little "itchy" too??!)
Joshua Schulman will be making his stage debut in St.
Petersburg's Showboat Dinner Theatre's production of "The
Music Man," starring Peter Palmer. Performances will be Julv
27-September 19.
Joshua has studied dance at the Largo Recreation Center,
participated in the Pelican Player's drama workshops, and is a
member of the Nifty-Notery Gang, a musical review group spon-
sored by the Largo Recreation Center. Joshua is a third grade
f student at Hillel School of Tampa, and resides in Largo, Florida

Rubber-Mouth Percy Gloats Over 'Israel's Vietnam'
Sen. Charles Percy, chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee, may just as
well be the object of our wrath as anyone else
these days. For, at least at the moment, Israel
has lost the initiative in Lebanon, and the
Palestine Liberation Organization appears
likely to emerge smelling like a rose, replete
with recognition from all.
. Far from destroying the PLO, as Prime
Minister Begin and Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon keep claiming. Israel's failure to
clinch its victory in Lebanon when taking
Beirut was a far more realistic objective than
it is today may well help the PLO to entrench
itself in the Middle East as never before.
Then why the grudge against Sen. Percy?
Because the Senator is among those rubber-
mouth politicians who, along with the one-
eyed media, have made Israel out as the
heavy and the Palestinians as angels in this
latest confrontation between them.
Now that we have PLO Chief Yasir Arafat
out of bis bathtowel head-dress and into re-
spectable fatigues, now that we've got Arafat
kissing babies all over Beirut just like any
other American politician on the campaign
trail, except for the scruffy Arafat beard,
you'd think everything was possible.
1 Not at all. Now we've also got Percy calling
Lebanon "Israel's Vietnam." One is not to get
the impression that Percy is therefore worried
about the impact on Israel of so tragic a com-
parison. Percy is in fact gloating. Still, con-
sidering the source of his power, he deserves
an answer. And a recent issue of "Near East
Report" says it best. How is Lebanon
"Israel's Vietnam"?
Says the editorial: "surely not in military terms. The
U.S. is, after all, the greatest power on earth, with
strong military alliances and political friendships and
access to vast resources, none of which was jeopardized
in Southeast Asia. Israel, on the other hand, largely
isolated in the world and devoid of resources, has since
its inception been surrounded by states and a terrorist
body which systematically warred against it with the
declared intention of annihala ting it.
"What of the two countries' military objectives? The
U.S., with neither its security nor its existence threa-
tened, extended its awesome military force thousands
of miles from its own shores in order to prevent a Com-
munist takeover of South Vietnam by invasion and
subversion. Israel, faced with a terrorist army on its
own border and with the grim certainty of an endless
cycle of violence and war stimulated by the Soviet
Union, acted to end the threat once and for all."
So much for rubber-mouth Percy.
Mubarak's Diplomacy
' Hosni Mubarack, in working so diligently
to reestablish Egypt's primacy in the Arab
world, is not so much undermining his rela-
tionship with Israel. For genuine Egyptian
friendship with Israel and genuine Egyptian
primacy in the Arab world would do nothing
other than advance the cause of peace in the
Middle East.
No. Mubarak at the same time is taking
positions against Israel that can only harden
the Arab world's attitude toward Israel and
help it discount Camp David more than ever
That is why what is achieved in Lebanon is
so critically important today. And why the
Israeli-PLO stalemate imposed upon Israel b;
the Reagan Administration is so dangerous in
the long term.
Still, at a huge pro-government rally in Tel
Aviv last week, Prime Minister Begin told
some 200,000 people that a peace treaty
with Lebanon by the end of the year se>med a
fair certainty to him and that the next
Israeli target was Jordan.
i In Jordan, Begin vowed, he would also
make peace with King Hussein and press for a
Jordanian-Israeli confederation between the
two nations over a Palestinian entity.
If true, Begin's promise would serve to di-
minish Mubarak and to elevate Hussein to a
position of genuine peace-maker equivalent in
status with the late President Sadat. But
these are a lot of if's. Mostly at issue is King
Hussein himself, who has not made a right
political or military choice since the establish-

ment of Israel in 1948.
Hessein should not have fought in 1948. He
did and lost Jerusalem. Hussein should not
have fought in 1967. He did and lost the West
Bank. Hessein should have fought in 1973. He
would most likely have retrieved all of his
previous losses and then some. But he did not
fight, and so lost his role as a serious conten-
der for Arab primacy in the Middle East.
Is Prime Minister Begins promise a pipe
dream? We hope not. For things appear
mighty dark for Israel right now.
Kudos for Supplement
The Israel Consul General's Office in
Miami, with Joel Arnon at its helm, and the
Tampa Jewish Federation are to be
commended for their joint effort this week in
circulating a special supplement to The Jew-
ish Floridian. The supplement made a large
amont of valuable statistical and tactical in-
formation available to the Tampa Jew-
ish community on Israel's "Peace for the
Galilee" operation in Lebanon.
At a time when the media in Tampa and
elsewhere throughout the world are so virule-
ntly anti-Israel in their reporting on just
exactly what is going on in Lebanon, the
special supplement rendered yeoman's service
to our community in the area of clarification
and answering fraudulent charges against
Israel involving its purposes and ultimate in-
tentions in that sad nation.
Consul General Arnon and the Federation
were instrumental in seeing that the Jewish
community should not be intimidated by
these charges and the kind of fictional report-
ing that leaves Israel bereft on the rack of
bigoted world opinion against her.
More than ever now, Israel needs the emo-
tional and intellectual support of every Jew at
least as much as it needs material support.
The special supplement helped strengthen
that support.
Reagan 'Explains'Rapid Cyclical Rebound
ON THE very first effective
day of President Reagan's in-
come tax cut the other week, I
decided to call the President and
congratulate him. Also to alert
him to an anomalous situation
that other taxpayers might be
experiencing and that perhaps he
is not aware of.
Other people are probably not
inclined to pick up the phone to
contact the White House even if
the impulse seizes them. They
feel this strange kind of embar-
rassment that I simply don't
share. I have tape-recorded some
of the less classified parts of my
conversation with Mr. Reagan. A
transcript follows:
Me: Congratulations. Mr.
President, on your fine '.ax reduc-
tion program. It sure has inspired
America. People everywhere are
jangling as they walk these days.
It must be all that extra cash.
The President: I appreciate
your call. Despite the fact that
some people are losing faith, I'm
still determined to see it through,
just as I promised.
Me: Sir, only one problem .
The President: What's that?
Are you worried (laughter) about
what to do with all that unex-
pected money?
Me: No, Mr. President. What I
can't figure is that even with the
tax cut, my take-home after the
usual deductions is $9 less than
before. I know you must have a
logical explanation.
The President: Well, yes. 1
have. That's what my best ad-
visersI won't mention names
because you don't have to know
who they arethat is what these
advisers of mine are calling the
negative cascade effect due to a
graduated tax situation. It'll
have to change.
Me: What, Sir, the negative
cascade effect or the graduated
tax situation?
The President: (Aside). Dave,
what the hell am I talking about?
Me: I'm not sure, Mr. Presi-
dent, what you are talking about.
The President: No, not you
Yes. of course, you. Whom else
would I be talking to? Well, as I
was saying, you don't have tc
know too much about that, not
really, so I'm not going to say
anymore at this point in time
Not anymore than that it's a
question of prioritizing and
maximizing input into solving
the problem.
Me: Oh .
The President: But I can say
this about that. You got $9 less
because of our supply-side view
of things. We are supplying more
money to the American people
now, and it is up to them to use it
Me: But, Mr. President, 1 got
less, and I imagine I'm not the
only one. How can I use wisely
what I don't have at all?
The President: Precisely You
are one of those privileged people

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
I hope you'll allow me to share
with the Tampa Jewish com-
munity some of my deep feelings
about the newly-reinstated Dial-
Transportation is an expensive
necessity and elderly people fre-
quently have fewer options in
this area than the rest of society.
The Tampa Jewish Federation
graciously allots several
thousand dollars annually to of-
fer a limited but nevertheless
useful transportation service for
senior citizens. When the TJF
provides this service, these are
dollars which are not going to Is-
rael, not going to Jewish schools
around the world, not going to
Jewish college students, Jewish
day school students or Jewish
preschool students, not going to
resettle Russian Jewish immi-
grants, not going to help fund the
Tampa Jewish Social Service, not
going toward the edification and
representation of the members of
the Tampa Jewish community.
This money which is not going
to all these Jewish interests, nor
to many more that don't happen
to be coming to mind just now,
are being used for the pleasure
and well-being of our senior citi-
zens. And, I might add that al-
most countless volunteer hours
have already been spent to try to
work out the most efficient serv-
ice at the most reasonable cost to
the riders as well as to TJF.

This service, then, is specifical-
ly designed to help the seniors
who, on whatever fixed income
they find themselves, are com-
mitted to supporting the Jewish
community through a contribu-
tion to the TJF. Non-Jewish
seniors and Jewish non-contri-
butors may either make a new
pledge to be eligible for the Dial-
s'Bus or register for the service
for $16.
Surely this is reasonable, and I
sincerely hope I have been able to
give you an inkling of the feelings
held by one member of the Dial-a-
Bus committee.
Yours truly,
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
The Tampa Jewish Federation
invites you to stop by the "new"
Federation office complex at the
JCC. We are now located on the

There will only be as many teams
as there are coaches. At this time
the Center has three coaches

Sharon Offers Refuge
To PLO Fighters
TEL AVIV Defense Minis-

Beirut that he stands by his offer
to give temporary refuge in Israel
to any Palestine Liberation Or-

Beirut who can prove they have
not participated'in terrorist acts
against Israel. He did not say
what would constitute such
proof. The PLO reportedly
rejected the offer.
Sharon spoke to the reporters
after meeting with U.S. special
envoy Philip Habib who is trying
to negotiate the departure of
PLO forces from west Beirut and
Lebanon. He said the problem
was that no Arab country has
agreed to accept the estimated

Oct. 31 through Nov. 11 of

According to July Levitt, a
Junteer with the JNW and

prominent sites of Israel such

raising mission but rather to edu-
cate Floridians as to the "mir-
acles of Israel." The tour is

exciting for the first time visitor
as for individuals who have
traveled there previously.

though the Way purports to be a
"nondenominational Biblical
research and teaching ministry,"
it has been investigated by
federal and state law enforcement
and regulatory agencies for
"questionable activities."
The Way was founded 40 years

Israel Gives Habib More
Time for PLO to Exit Beirut
Israel is giving U.S. spe-
cial envoy Philip Habib
more time to negotiate an
agreement for the Palestine
Liberation Organization's
departure from west Beirut
and Lebanon. That decision
was reached by Premier
Menachem Begin after con-
sulting with Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir
and Defense Minister Ariel
Shamir said on a television in-
terview, however, that the time
"cannot be unlimited. The situa-
tion cannot continue indefinite-
ly." He set no deadline for Habib
to achieve results. Begin, Shamir
and Sharon reportedly agreed to
await the outcome of the meet-
ings tentatively set for next week
in Washington between Ad-
ministration officials and the
Foreign Ministers of Saudi
Arabia and Syria before Israel
forces the issue in west Beirut.
THE ISRAELI leaders are
hopeful that Syria will agree to
host the PLO after they leave
Lebanon and believe some sort of
arrangement may be worked out
in Washington. However, Israel
will not give the political negotia-
tions another 30 days to bear
fruit, as suggested by Secretary
of State-designate George Shultz
in his remarks before the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee
this week.
Israel's forebearance so far is
attributed here to a stern warn-
ing Begin received from Presi-
dent Reagan last week not to
launch a direct assault on west
Beirut. There is also Reagan's
conditional offer to send a con-
tingent of U.S. troops to Beirut
to supervise the PLO evacuation,
Shamir said in his interview that
Israel would permit a mul-
tinational force only after a size-
able number of PLO men have
left Lebanon.
He also denied that Israel has
any desire to see the Palestinians
depose King Hussein of Jordan, a
scheme said to be favored by
Sharon. But he repeated the con-
tention that Jordan is a "Pales-
tinian state."
Meanwhile, Defense Minister
Sharon warned the Palestine
Liberation Organization that Is-
rael holds the upper hand around
Beirut and would set the terms
for the PLO's withdrawal. He
said the fact that Israel is allow-
ing time to negotiate a peaceful
solution should not be taken "as
a sign of weakness."
Addressing Air Force Day
ceremonies at an air base in
southern Israel, Sharon declared,
"Israel's air sword and the
swords of its other army forma-
tions has not yet been returned to
their scabbards.

Navon Takes Out After Mitterrand
President Yitzhak
Navon, in a rare political
statement, has blasted
French President Francois
Mitterrand for comparing
Israel Defense Force ac-
tions in Lebanon to the
Nazis deliberate razing of a
French village, Oradour-
sur-Glane, and massacring
its inhabitants during
World War II.
"With this calumny you have
gone too far," Navon declared in
a speech marking Theodor
Herzl's Memorial Day in Jerusa-
lem. He said Mitterrand's com-
parison was "terrible" and was
an offense against all victims of
Nazism, both Jews and the in-
habitants of the village in the
southwest of France.
"This calumny cannot be
allowed to resound through
France and Europe unchal-
lenged," Navon said. Premier
Menachem Begin was present at
the memorial meeting and ob-
servers assumed that Navon's re-
marks had been coordinated in
advance with the Premier.
MITTERRAND reportedly
made the comparison in a state-
ment during his visit to Budapest
last Friday. French sources in
Paris said that the President had
been "grossly misquoted." -j

Pathological Reaction
Israel Spreading Doubts About
War at Home, Abroad
Organizations in the News
Continued from Page 1
The Soviet connection with in-
ternational terrorism in unmis-
takable. To be sure, the Soviets
did not produce the movement,
but they were quick to realize its
Cntial for furthering their
_term plans in accordance
with their global strategy.
Terrorism is of course, an ti-
thetical to democratic values.
People do not count. The aim of
the terrorist is to destroy the
faith of citizens in the capacity of
their governments to protect
them. Ultimately his aim is to
destroy democratic institutions.
ISRAEL'S representatives
have been warning the world of
this steadily advancing peril.
While the PLO has penetrated
the international arena and world
capitals, Israel has never tired of
pointing out that peace m this
region will never be possible, as
long as the PLO can aim a gun at
any Arab who might wish to talk
peace with us. Not only can the
various Israeli projects for auto-
nomy and progress towards a
political solution never reach the
point of serious debate, but even
Egyptian plans for the Palestin-
ians will never get off the ground
if anybody who supports them,
from President Sadat on down,
will be ruthlessly assassinated.
The leader of this gang of
thugs, Yassir Arafat, when in-
terviewed by one of the outstand-
ing journalists of our time.
Oriana Fallaci, did not even at-
tempt to conceal his intentions.
"We don't want peace. We want
war victory. Peace means the
destruction of Israel and nothing
In frustration bordering on
despair, Israel in 1979 held an in-
ternational conference on terror-
ism in Jerusalem (under the
auspices of the Yonatan Institu-
te) to which came statesmen,
thinkers, historians and news
analysts from all over the free
THEY ALL expressed the
gravest concern over the ever-
spreading peril, and poured their
wrath out on countries that, in
amazing short-sightedness, are
getting softer and softer on ter-
rorism, but all they could do in
practice was to issue a call for "a
firm stand,"
Firm indeed! Since that confe-
rence on terrorism, the PLO has
managed to spread its tentancies
into dozens more international
bodies. One of the statements
made at the conference deserves
to be mentioned. George Bush,
now Vice President of the U.S.,
"As nations continue to sub-
stitute nuclear power for oil, we
are faced with a possibility of a
new form of terrorism that of
nuclear blackmail. We may find
ourselves one day being black-
mailed by terrorists, not holding
five, ten or a 100 hostages, but
threatening actions that could
result in the death of hundreds of
thousands of our citi-
zens. Each individual nation
must begin to formulate its own
programs/ to prevent the
horrifying threat.
Some foreign states, each for
its own reasons, have acquiesced
in terrorism to the point of open
support. The PLO has been con-
sidered a good means for curry-
ing favour with rich Arab states.
France, which has failed to sup-
press terror in Algiers, has suf-
fered a trauma, because Israel
learned to live with a problem it
was unable to solve.
ENGLAND IS still groping
with terror in Northern Ireland.
Jealousy, complexes, even out-
right anti-Semitism, have all
played their role. Many states-
men perceived an opportunity to
cut Israel down to size and make
its existence permanently depen-
dent on the goodwill of the Chris-
tian world. The survivors of
Hitler's camps had really gone
too far for the taste of some
leaders: "A domineering people,"
said Charles de Gaulle.
So the PLO has been elevated
to the position of being the exclu-
sive, or at least the main spokes-
man, of the Palestinian cause.
Without it, nothing can be
achieved. Its voice had to prevail.
If the PLO opposed the Camp
David accords, the EEC nations
obediently lined up in Venice
against the American intiative. If
the PLO maintains that a Pale-
stinian state is the only solution
of the Arab-Israeli conflict, how
can the European community,
immersed in economic problems
and chasing Arab funds, take a
different stand?
All U.S. initiatives at the UN
against international terrorism
have been successfully blocked
by the Communist and Third
World blocs. Since December
1972, the U.S. drafts have been
shelved by one General Assembly '
after the other. In December
1981, it was decided to include
the item in the "provisional
agenda" for fall 1983. Till then,
come what may, the UN will have
nothing to say on international
One of the most alarming as-
pects of PLO terror is the kind of
arsenal stored, perepared and put

wildering quantities. The

tended to generate fear, by deli-
berate, indiscriminate, wanton
destruction of whole cities and
villages, to paralyze civilians into
inactivity, to benumb popula-
tions, to deprive them of all hope
so they will fall on their knees,
praying for sheer life, under the
slogan, "Better red than dead,"
Against which populations
were all these terrorist weapons
to be used? Which African and
Asian States were to be subjected
to these apocalyptic campaigns?
Israel decided that it would
not tolerate this situation. Not
only for the people of Galilee, who
were always potential hostages of
the PLO, but because the whole
of Israel could never be secure as
long as Lebanon was a safe base
for the terrorists. So, in a cam-
paign carefully prepared and
brilliantly executed, we have torn
to pieces the myth of the PLO,
which went like straw in the

EEC Shelves Sanctions
Plan Against Israel
PARIS The European
Economic Community has aban-
doned plans to launch a separate
peace initiative in Lebanon and
has shelved the possibility of
sanctions against Israel.
The Foreign Ministers of the
10 EEC member-states, meeting
m Brussels decided that Europe-
an initiative now would only hurt
the chances for a political
solution in Beirut which the U.S.
is attempting to negotiate. But
they will press the U.S. "to take
into account the views of the Pal-
estinians" in their search for a

any more with these murderers.
Thus, the nerve centre of interna-
tional terror has been paralyzed,
and this will be felt in Japan,
Europe and South America.
APART FROM the relief the
world will now enjoy, new vistas
for peace are opening in the
Middle East. The Palestinians
will have to look for other repre-
sentatives to replace the dis-
graced PLO. The Palestinians,
who have had fantasies about ab-
sorbing Israel into a Palestinian
state, can now regroup and de-
velop a realistic, just plan.
The move in Lebanon put an
end to a tragic situation and did
so at a great price. The cost in
bloodshed and human suffering
on all sides was the excruciating
part of this mission. Israelis,
Christians. Moslems and Druse
suffered. The Lebanese had paid
dearly for their total surrender to
PLO violence seven years ago,
and for the pretence that a coun-
try can live in a moral morass.
The only possible consolation for
the losses is that there will be
fewer if any innocent
victims in the future.
The obscene allegation that
Israel, which broke the steel ring
around Lebanon's neck, had per-
petrated "a genocide" is per-
verse. It smacks of anti-Semitism
on the part of those who mourn
the lost opportunity to use the
PLO against the Jewish State.
Politically, the Near East is
now open, many options are
possible, and Israel and the U.S.
can almost without threat of
serious Soviet intervention,
apply new thinking to the com-
plex situation. A fresh, realistic
approach, one reflecting the new
reality that Israel has created, is
certainly due. One should not be
surprised if the echoes of
Lebanon will reverberate even in \
the arms limitation talks now /L
being held in Geneva, where the
embarrassed Soviets must be
swallowing their pride, due to the
abysmal showing of their sophis-
ticated weaponry.
FOR THE first time since the
founding of the Jewish state, we
were able to plan a campaign not
as result of foreign aggression, as
in 1948. 1967, 1973, and it was
one free from the restraints of
embarrassing partners, as in
1956. Israel has proved again its
dedication, its power and its res-
pect for human values.
Not for the first time in our
history, an outstanding Jewish
contribution is being first beg-
rudged, then gradually acknow
ledged and ultimately acclaimed.

The array of diplomatic talent
and Middle East specialists
gathered by Shultz within hours
of his assuming office indicated
that the new Secretary of State is
determined to hammer out a
strong, coherent Middle East
policy without delay and, in the
short run, avert further blood-
shed around west Beirut where
the PLO remnant is under siege
by Israeli forces.
THE PRESENCE of Rissinger
aroused most speculation inas-
much as the former Secretary,
with a record of successful nego-
tiations in the Middle East, had
been little used during Haig's
tenure at the State Department.
Only last week Rissinger publicly
opposed the dispatch of U.S.
troops to Lebanon to oversee the
departure of the PLO, an offer
"in principle" made by President
Reagan earlier this month. The
offer was contingent on several
conditions, none of which has
been met.
Whatever new Mideast policy
may emerge from Shult'z consul-
tations remained a matter of
speculation. Israeli sources here
said the fact that Ambassador
Arens was the first foreign diplo-
mat to see the new Secretary of
State indicated Shultz's appre-
ciation of Israel's security prob-
lems. According to the source,
Shultz wanted to reassure Arens
of the continuity of the Reagan
Administration'8 support for Is-
BUT SHULTZ went on record,
during his confirmation hearings
before the Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee last week, as be-
ing convinced that the aspira-
tions of the Palestinian people
must be addressed as a prere-
quisite for peace in the Middle
East and that the U.S. must
strengthen its ties with friendly
Arab states.
He made it clear that he op-
posed Israel's invasion of Leba-
non, Israel's settlement policy on
the West Bank and Gaza Strip
and its ouster of elected Pales-
tinian mayors in those territories.
Shultz also stressed that the U.S.
would not soften its conditions
for recognition of the PLO.

Argov Shows 'Miraculous' Rebound
After Six Weeks of Unconsciousness
LONDON (JTA) Ambassador Shlomo Argov of
Israel regained consciousness six weeks after being shot
in the head by an Arab terrorist. He is also breathing
without a ventilating machine, is eating and drinking
normally and "engaging in short periods of conversa-
tion," said the National Hospital for Nervous Diseases
which also emphasized that the 52-year-old diplomat is
still seriously ill.
An Israeli official said Argov's Embassy colleagues
had been "greatly cheered by this miraculous im-
provement." A bulletin added that Argov had been
treated for a "minor pulmonary embolism" (the medical
term for a small blood clot) but that this was a common
complaint associated with long periods of inactivity.
Immediately after being shot June 4, Argov underwent a
two-and-a-half hour emergency operation.

tion if Israel continued to
interfere with U.S. negotia-
tions in Beirut to evacuate
the PLO forces. Time mag-
azine said Reagan's letter
was described as "the
toughest from any U.S.
President to an Israeli
leader in years."
The interference by Israel
referred, according to Time mag-
azine, to Israeli shelling of west
Beirut and the blockade of the
city last month which at times
kept the leaders of the various
Lebanese factions from meeting
with one another and hindered
negotiations by Reagan's special
envoy, Phili Habib. Time maga-
zine also claimed that Reagan's
letter to Begin followed an angry
message to Reagan from Saudi
Arabia's King Fahd who de-
manded that the U.S. force Israel
to lift the blockade.
sisted here that Reagan's letter
to Begin contained no threat, not
even a hint, that the U.S. would
launch direct contact with the
PLO, nor was any anger ex-
pressed by the two leaders during
their meeting in Washington last
But informed sources con-
firmed that the message from
Reagan to Begin had contained
several chastening passages.
They said Begin spoke to the
Cabinet Sunday about the con-
tents of the message but had not
read its precise text.
Some observers linked the
message to what they noted was
a marked increase in recent days
in Begin's care and caution to
maintain "coordination'.' with the
U.S. At the Cabinet meeting, the
Premier spoke at length of the
need to give Habib time to con-
duct negotiations and not to fall
out with Washington over the
ongoing crisis in Beirut.
Begin was thus softening some-
what his earlier stance which has
threatened military action if the
talks failed, although at the Cab-
inet meeting the Premier again
warned that the present situation
in west Beirut could not go on in-
definitely and that Israel would
eventually have to consider
"other options."
But a Cabinet official quoted
Begin as telling aides that Israel
"should act with wisdom and be
patient, and I am convinced that
the terrorists will leave Lebanon.
As I have said, not a single one of
them will remain."
The official also stated that Is-
rael will not launch an all-cat
attack to drive the PLO out of
west Beirut while the U.S. con-
siders a peaceful withdrawal
possible. "Israel will wait so long
as the U.S. believes there is a
chance" for the diplomatic
process, he said. "There is no
need at preent to consider other
SOME policy-makers, mean-
while, continue to express open
skepticism as to the PLO's basic
intention to withdraw from Bei-
rut. They feel the organization
has been playing for time all
along and will continue to do so.
(In Amman, Jordan, Foreign
Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher
of West Germany appealed to all
parties in the Lebanese conflict to
end what he called "a vicious
circle of violence and counter-vio-
lence." Speaking at the start of a
four-day visit to Jordan and
Egypt, he said that West Ger-

could not achieve security by the
use of force, but only through the
recognition of Palestinian rights,

border of Israel.
"THE PRESIDENT also stressed the
importance of dealing with the problem
of the Palestinians and to solve that pro-
blem within the framework of the Camp
David accords. The President empha-
sized that there is a difference between
the PLO and the Palestinians."

Uter years of bloodshed at the hands of terror-
Israel has launched a campaign to halt PLO
Tcssion. which had become particularly fierce
ing the past year. "Operation Peace for the
Jilee," the current effort to eradicate the PLO
fesence on Israel's northern border, has allowed
Lilians of the Galilee to live normal lives, with-
; the fear of constant terrorist attacks.
ince launching its campaign in Lebanon on
e 6, the Government of Israel has repeatedly
lared that it will withdraw from Lebanon once
goals are obtained.
srael seeks a 25-mile buffer zone along the

on's territory. The PLO was given an additional
percent of Lebanon's territory, on which the
terrorists established training camps for inter-
ational terrorism and ammunition dumps for
i collections of Soviet-supplied weapons.
The Syrian military occupation had continued
puring the past six years, leading many observers
i conclude that Syria hoped to incorporate Leba-
non into "Greater Syria," a territory on which the
pyrians have had designs for four decades.
More than 100 terrorist assaults were directed

Focus Beirut
The PLO is a terrorist organization whose central aim is the liquidation of Israel. In pursuit
of this aim, the organization has been operating, from its bases in Lebanon, both against Israel
and against Jews abroad.
Israel is convinced that the only way to ensure that its citizens will henceforth be able to live
secure and in peace is to remove the PLO from Lebanon. This has been accomplished in South-
ern Lebanon, where the PLO bases no longer exist, but parts of its forces and headquarters re-
main in West Beirut.
The headquarters of the PLO's various component groups have been set up in the western
part of the Lebanese capital in total disregard of the authority and sovereignty of the Leba-
nese government. For the past twelve years, the city has served as the main center for PLO or-
ganizational activities of ail kinds, including the planning of terrorist strikes and the training
and activation of terrorists against Israel and other countries. In Beirut today, there are be-
tween 5,000 and 6,000 terrorists, together with their leaders.
Beirut has also been the hub of the organization's intelligence, publication and propaganda
apparatus. Its newspapers have been published there, and the broadcasts of its radio station,
The Voice of Palestine,' have been beamed to the surrounding region from Beirut. The PLO
news agency, 'WAFA,' has its offices in Beirut.
Beirut was the center of international terror, with active links to virtually every known ter-
rorist underground in the world. The city also houses the administrative, logistical and tech-
nical facilities connected with terrorist activity abroad: a travel agency, printing presses, facili-
ties for forging passports, and workshops and storage places for arms, ammunition and ex-
plosive devices.
Like the rest of Southern Lebanon, the city of Beirut was turned into an enclave of piracy and
lawlessness under PLO domination. So long as the Lebanese capital is not rid of these terrorist
groups and their facilities, Lebanon will not be able to restore the lawful and effective rule of its
government or exercise sovereignty there, nor will the welfare of its citizens or the citizens of
Israel be assured. Israel is certain that all the nations of the enlightened world support the
restoration of Lebanese sovereignty, the disarming of the PLO and the elimination of one of the
main centers of world terrorism.
In the last few weeks, the government of Israel proposed several times that PLO personnel
and their leaders lay down their arms and leave Lebanon by any route they choose taking their
personal weapons with them.

July 1981. At the end of that period, the United
Nations placed peacekeeping forces along the Is-
rael-Lebanon border to guarantee a ceasefire in the
region. None-the-less, there were 150 violations of
the ceasefire by the PLO during the past year.
After the failure of the UN forces to maintain
tranquility in the border area became increasingly
evident, the Israeli government determined that
action was mandated to protect citizens of the
Galilee from constant rocket and artillery assaults
by terrorists from across the border.
The overall objective of Israel's campaign in
Lebanon is self-defense of its people, a right that is
both a recognized and mandated factor of inter-
national law.
Make the truth known
One of the greatest tools of Nazi propaganda during World War II was
["The Big Lie," a theory which was based on the premise that if a be is re-
Ipeated often enough it is accepted as fact. The PLO and other enemies of
[Israel have resurrected The Big Lie and are using that theory to spread
[misinformation about "Operation Peace for the Galilee."
In recent weeks the media have been delu^-d with misinformation
(promulgated by the PLO terrorists and their allies about casualty and
I death statistics, about the Israeli objectives during the current military
campaign, and about the real purpose, history and political stance of the
PLO terrorists. This misinformation is spread to the general public each

Terror is its password
The major factor contributing to the PLO's
growth and political success in the Arab world has
been its unbridled use of conspicuous terrorist
acts and the resultant media spotlight this
heinous violence receives.
Since 1969, there have been over 40 attacks on
Jewish targets worldwide carried out by Arab ter-
rorist groups or with their encouragement, and
nearly 50 attacks were perpetrated against Israeli
diplomatic missions. A total of more than 200 ter-
rorist acts were launched against Israeli and other
targets located outside of Israel. Since September
1980, more than 40 attacks have been made
against foreign embassies and their personnel in
West Beirut. And within Israel itself, the PLO
has brashly claimed responsibility for countless
attacks directed exclusively at innocent civilians.
Major PLO Terrorist Acts:
MUNICH: The murder of 11 Israeli Olympic
ATHENS: Four murdered and 54 wounded
by terrorists assigned to murder travellers leaving

LONDON: Attempted assassination of tae

The high incidence of terrorist activities
throughout the western world stems directly from
a reluctance to speak out and fight against the
PLO and international terror.
Were you there?'
(One of the Israel Defense Forces' of-
ficers relates to a question that many
are asking these days.)
Question: The war sowed death and
destruction and claimed the lives of
innocent civilians in Lebanon. Was
this necessary?
Answer: I want to ask those who are
so free in their criticism on this score:
were you here? Did you see what went
on here? You know, there isn't an
army anywhere in the world that acts
with such care, with such considera-
tion for human life there just isn't!
In every briefing, every talk, every
exercise and, later, at every stage
of the actual operation, even in the
midst of battle, even when your finest
men are falling in battle all our of-
ficers keep telling the men, and re-
peating over and over: Don't touch
civilians! They are not our enemies,
and we don't want to kill them!
How cautiously we acted! In that
killers' camp down there, at Ain
Hilweh, there were terrorist-killers
who felt no compunction about hold-
ing their own people hostage and
murdering their children in cold
blood. Five times we sent delegations
of local dignitaries from Sidon to ask
them to come out and hold talks with
us, to let the civilians in that camp
come out, or to give up their arms and
none of them would be hurt. But they
refused even to listen. Instead, they
shot at the dignitaries and drove them
back, shouting after them, "Victory
or death!"
And still, we acted with caution.
Still, we refrained from any act that
was liable to harm civilians or their
But when you are storming an ob-
jective and you see your comrades
falling around you some of the fin-
est of our fighting men what com-
mander would not, in such a situation,
call for artillery or air support to
soften up the enemy positions?
The terrorists planned their defense
at the expense of the civilian popula-
tion deliberately, cold-bloodedly,
. with no thought at all to human life:
their bunkers were situated under-
neath apartment-houses, so that
women and children would "defend"
them. Who, then, has the right to tell
a commanding officer whose men are
dying to hold his fire and simply let
the carnage continue?! That would be
a rank betrayal of the trust placed in
us by the mothers of these boys!
I want to tell you in total candor
and sincerity: we suffered losses in
this war. We sacrificed wonderful
young boys. We talk about them day
and night; they are never out of our
minds. We talk about their families
and make plans to help them. As soon
as I can make myself free, I will go
and visit every family that had a son
from my unit was has fallen. I shall be
at the bedside of every one of our
I can assure all our critics: We have
not only gone to great lengths to
maintain a high moral standard in a
harsh and difficult war; but, on many
occasions, we did a great deal more
than what could have been expected
of us in the circumstances. I know
that my conscience on this score as
an Israeli, as a Jew and as a soldier
is clear.
What do Lebanese
Americans say?
At the conclusion of its recent annual convention in Washington,
D.C., the American Lebanese League adopted the following resolution.
The organization represents an important and politically sophisticated
element of the American Lebanese population of some two million.
Whereas; The American Lebanese League expresses deep sorrow at the
tragic losses of life, limb and property, and laments the added thousands
of Lebanese citizens made refugees in their homeland and;
Whereas: The Lebanese problem must be considered in a larger con-
text, having suffered the degradation and dehumanization of over seven
years of brutal Syrian and PLO military occupation;
Whereas: It is in the vital and strategic interests of the United States
and Lebanon to have all foreign forces withdrawn. A tragic error would
be made if Israeli forces were to withdraw leaving Syrian and PLO forces
in place. This would condemn Lebanon to its continued agony and suf-
Whereas: The present situation offers an opportunity for the United
States to solve the Lebanese problem and to neutralize its territory as a
flashpoint for conflict by alien forces with impunity.
Whereas: It would be in the United States' national and strategic in-
terests and those of Lebanon, that the present policy of containment and
passivism by reversed.
Therefore, Be it Resolved that the United States use all legitimate
means to:
Assist in the creation of a strong central authority and army in
Lebanon that assures a free, independent, pluralistic, sovereign state
with territorial integrity.
Focus Beirut
Continued from Page 1
Israel, in its wish to avoid further bloodshed and suffering on both
sides, and in response to appeals directed to it to refrain from acts or de-
mands that would humiliate the PLO terrorists, is patiently giving the
process of diplomacy and negotiation every chance to succeed. The Israel
Defense Forces have only fired when fired open. The PLO has responded
wi'.h its accustomed cynicism and ruthlessness, and has repeatedly
violated the ceasefire. It has resorted to delaying tactics and has con-
stantly tried to mislead the negotiators. The present position of the Leba-
nese government is that the PLO armed presence in Beirut is illegitimate
and that the Lebanese army be restored to its rightful role in its own
capital. The responsibility for the fact that the crisis remains unresolved
rests squarely on the PLO.
Most of the Lebanese people Christians, Moslems and Druzes an-
xious to see an end to the fighting, support Israel's proposals for a peace-
ful resolution of the confrontation with the PLO. Nevertheless, the PLO
has rejected these offers, preferring instead to consolidate its military en-
trenchment in Beirut. It has placed its artillery and other heavy weaponry
next to the foreign embassies in West Beirut, as well as alongside
mosques, churches, hospitals and schools as part of its customary and
well known practice of locating its military equipment and facilities in the
heart of civilian areas. Moreover, large numbers of civilians in West Beirut
are known to have been seized by the PLO and turned into hostages.

ii fr?m lB^ael and tnm Leb*non. th Israel Defense Forces are doing
all within their power to keep to a minimum the number of casualties and
the damage that will be caused by any war. In the course of the past few
weeks, the IDF has repeatedly dropped leaflets into the city and beamed
radio broadcasts to the residents of West Beirut, urging them to leave the
dty in order to save their lives. A large number of residents heeded Is-
rael s appeal and left West Beirut.
Israel's fight is not against Lebanon but only against the PLO. The best
evidence of this has been the enthusiastic reception that has been accorded
to Israel Defense Forces by the inhabitants of Lebanon, who have given
open and varied expression to their appreciation to Israel for having
liberated them from PLO terror.
Israel has no territorial aspirations whatsoever regarding Lebanon. A
its leaders have repeatedly stated, Israel's forces wfll leave Lebanon as
soon as thst country wfll have recovered its sovereignty, established an
effective central government and made suitable arrangement* to prevent
any future PLO activity from its territory.

U.N. school housed classes in terror
Jerusalem Post Reporter
SI DON What was apparently the central
training school for Fatah terrorists in Lebanon
was discovered several days ago by Israeli soldiers
in a vocational training school run by the United
Nations Relief and Works Agency.
The school, the Siblin Vocational Training
Center, sits on a mountain top with a breathtaking
view of the Mediterranean, several kilometers
north of Sidon. It was founded as part of the
UNRWA network of schools in June 1961. accord-
ing to the plaque above the door of the adminis-
tration building.
The impressive complex consists of a number of
large three- and four-story buildings on various
levels of the mountain. The upper buildings seem
to have served legitimate vocational-training
functions. The lower buildings were devoted ex-
clusively to the Fatah terrorist training school.
When reporters visited the school, Israel De-
fense Forces engineer corpsmen were busy defus-
ing bombs, removing booby traps, and sorting out
and loading the enormous quantity of weapons
and ammunition found in the complex. It was
their third day at the job.
There were crates of RPG (rocket-propelled
grenade) launchers and missiles, Kalashnikov as-
sault rifles, anti-tank and anti-aircraft missile
launchers, hand grenades and and an assortment
of other weapons and explosives.
The officer in charge of de-activating the
weapons and explosives said the large cache was
mostly of Soviet and Eastern Bloc origin. But
Chinese, Swedish. Belgian and NATO equipment,
and American recoilless rifles, were also found.
The terrorist training center had a modem

Thank you for your letter expressing concern over the Israeli
incursion into southern Lebanon.
As you know, on June 5, 1982, the Israeli Army attacked Palestin-
ian outposts in southern Lebanon. Previously, Palestinian forces
shelled Israeli settlements from Lebanon and made assassination
attempts on Israeli diplomatic personnel in violation of the
cease fire agreement negotiated by Ambassador Habib last year.
President Reagan met with Ambassador Habib and instructed him to
try to restore the cease fire agreement he achieved last year.
