No Independence Day Parade Planned in Israel Next Year

JERUSALEM—(JTA) — Israel's
21st anniversary next year will be
celebrated without a military pa-.
rade, an annual feature in the
past. A ministerial committee will
be appointed to decide how the
day should be observed.
The cabinet decided not to hold
a parade next year. The command-
er-in-chief of the armed forces,
Gen. Haim-Lev told the govern-
ment he doubted whether a mili-
tary parade was a fitting method
Of marking the day. Other leaders

have opposed it on the grounds of
expense and in the belief that it
is not necessary to display the i
state's military power.
The parade last May 2, largest
in Israel's history, was steeped
in controversy. It was condemned
in a resolution of the Security
Council, principally, because its
route included streets in East Jeru-
salem, occupied during the Six-
Day War. Secretary - General U
Thant told the Council at the time
that he thought the parade would

Terrorist Denied
Status as POW

TEL AVIV (JTA) — A Nablus
military tribunal rejected a plea
by a member of an Arab sabotage
group that he be recognized as a
prisoner of war according to the
Geneva Convention.
Adnan Ghanem, 22, one of a
gang of ten marauders charged
with subversive and hostile ac-
tivities, claimed that he was a
lieutenant in the so-called Pales-
tinian Commando Battalion 421
which operated under Iraqi com-
mand. But the court ruled that
by entering Israel-held territory
in civilian clothing, using forged
documents and mingling with
civilians in Nablus, the prisoner
forfeited any claim to POW status
under the Geneva Convention.
Ghanem supplied his interro-
gators with the names and ad-
dresses of other members of his
group and also disclosed other
underground cells. He was separ-
ated from his comrades for his
:own protection but objected by
going on a hunger strike and had
to be helped into court, because
of his weakened condition. The
prosecution feared th at the
prisoner might be beaten up or
worse by his comrades for in-
'forming on them.
