Jerusalem Rioters After Explosion Warned They Aid Terrorists

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire

to The Jewish News)
JERUSALEM — Defense Minis-
ter Moshe Dayan declared in a
television interview Monday that
Jews who rioted against Arabs in
East Jerusalen were playing into
the hands of terrorists and warned
that the army would be called in to
keep public order should the Sun-
day night rioting be repeated.
The rioting broke out after a
terrorist grenade explosion in
downtown Jerusalem which injur-
ed 10 persons, two of them serious-
ly. The explosions were followed
y assaults on Arabs in the east
and west sections of the city by
mobs of infuriated Jewish youths
who were dispersed by police.
Gen. Dayan reiterated his con-
demnation of the rioters which he
made in the strongest terms dur-
ing a personal tour of East
Jerusalem Monday, He said the
rioters were doing the work of the
terrorists who want to poison re-
lations between the Jewish and
ab communities. He said that
erturning cars and breaking
op windows can achieve nothing
t more trouble. Gen. Dayan was
interviewed on a test program
produced in advance of the estab-
lishment of - regular TV broadcast-
ing in Israel.
His visit to East Jerusalem Mon-
day was at the request of Mayor
Teddy Kollek and apparently had

city appeared normal Tuesday, al-
though police -patrols were more
in evidence than usual and some
Arab taxi drivers refused to take
fares to the Israeli sector.
Gen. Dayan's comments reflect-
ed fears expressed -by other of-
ficials and in newspaper editorials
Tuesday that future terrorist
attacks on civilians could lead to
large-scale anti-Arab rioting. Of-
ficials considered the grenade at-
tacks part of a new effort by
Arb terrorits to concentrate on
civilian targets in retaliation for
allege Israeli attacks on civilian
targets in Jordan.
Sixteen Jerusalem Arabs sus-
pected of involvement in the
grenade blasts in downtown Jerus-
alem were remanded in custody
Wednesday for a week. Two Jew-
ish youths are also being held for
smashing the windows of an Arab-
owned taxi during the riots that
followed the grenade explosions.

El Fatah Band Beats
Arab Merchant to Death

JERUSALEM — A prominent
Nablus merchant who had re-
portedly advocated peace be-
tween the Arabs and Israel,
was beaten to death by El
Fatah terrorists while on a
business trip to Jordan, it was
learned here Wednesday. The
information was provided by a
leading West Bank Arab whose
name cannot be disclosed.
He said that Jamal Abdul
Rahim Shikhada of Nablus was
seized by terrorists who had
laid in wait for him when he
crossed the Jordan River to the
East Bank. The victim was
questioned on his alleged asso-
ciations with Israelis and during
the course of the interrogation
he was fatally beaten, the in-
formant said.

Steel helmeted police, aided by
border patrolmen, restored calm to
Jerusalem after an evening of
terrorist grenade explosions Sun-
day. The city was under heavy
guard to prevent another outbreak
of terror tactics and retaliation by
angry Jews. But another bomb
went off Monday near the Knesset
building, although nobody was in-
jured and no property damaged.
Incensed Jewish mobs severely
beat up Arabs in the east and
west sectors of the city and even
assaulted one of the injured in the
belief that he was an Arab sabo-
. Dayan condemned the riots and
beatings of Arab residents and
declared that the acts of a few
terrorists did not reflect the atti-
tude of the general population. He
said the residents of East Jerusa-
lem were opposed to terrorism and
proved by their daily behavior that
they can live peacefully under
Israeli rule.
All of the injured were hospital-
ized and were reported out of
danger except a beaten Arab who
was listed as critical. They includ-
ed two American students at the
Hebrew University. Suzanne
Greenstein, of New York and Den-
nis Fuchs of New Jersey, both 22,
whose injuries were described as
slight. Two Jews were seriously
wounded. Police rounded up sever-
al dozen suspects in connection
with the sabotage and 16 of them
were held for questioning. Six
Jewish rioters were also in jail
and charges may be brought
against them.

Minister of Police Eliahu Sas-
soon ordered police to take strict
measures to suppress any attempt
to disturb law and order no mat-
ter from which side. Jews and
Arabs were reported to be mingl-
ing normally in Jerusalem this

plosions were described by ob-
servers as the most serious
terrorist acts on Israeli soil since
the Six-Day War and were ob-

The grenades, each with a
Chinese-made chemical timing de-
vice, were planted in central parts
of West Jerusalem, concealed in
trash bins and in wastepaper cans
attached to lamp posts.
Five of them exploded between
9 p.m. and - 10:30 p.m. local time
but nine of the 10 injured persons
were struck by fragments from a
single grenade that detonated in a
trash bin on Strauss Street, near
the Bikur Holim Hospital, about
100 yards from the city's main
business crossroads. The 10th vic-
tim was an attendant at a filling
station near which another gren-
ade went off.
The blasts temporarily disrupted
activities in downtown Jerusalem.
Several streets were sealed off and
two movie theaters near the scene
of the explosions shut down. Police
began a foot-by-foot search in pub-

lic gardens, empty lots and trash
cans in the downtown district. Civil
defense wardens found several
grenades which were taken to open
lots where they were exploded
The blasts which were an ob-
vious terrorist attempt to cause
indiscriminate injuries or death
among civilians, infuriated many
Jerusalemites. Hundreds of Is-
raeli youths poured into East Jeru-
salem, severely, beating up any
Arabs they encountered, smashing
shop windows, hurling rocks into
Arab houses and through the win-
dows of Arab taxis and overturn-
ing cars. Arabs found in the Wes-
tern sector were also beaten.
