4 Arab Youths Get Life Terms

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Four Arab
youths of East Jerusalem received
life prison terms from a military
tribunal which found them guilty
of throwing hand grenades in Jer-
usalem on Aug. 18, during what
later became known as "The Night
of Grenades," and with placing
explosives in the Tel Aviv bus de-
pot on Sept. 4. The judgments
were unanimous.
The tribunal rejected a plea of
defense counsel that the defendants
should be regarded as prisoners of
war in accordance with the Geneva
Convention and thus not subject to
criminal prosecution for their ac-
tions. The Israeli judges cited each
Geneva Convention clause, declar-
ing that none applied to the defend-
ants, who they ruled, acted with
intent to hurt civilians. The judges
noted that the defendants were not
members of an army, had no com-
manding officers and wore no uni-
The four Arabs — Chassam Ab-
dul Latif Kamel, 18; Sawim Kaled
Houseiba, 20; Ahmed Mouhamed
Muneimar, 19; and Mrwab Abu
Hard, 19 — were sentenced to an
additional 10 years imprisonment
for participation in a "hostile or-
ganization." Latif Kamel was given
an additional 20 years for posses-
sion of hand grenades when he
was captured. Terms are to run
concurrently, and the defendants
have two weeks to appeal.

The youths were not present
when the sentences were handed
down. They had been given per-
mission to speak in connection with
the sentencing, but they used the
occasion to make an effort to start
a political statement. The court
ordered them to stop. When the
defendants ignored the order, they
were removed from the courtroom.

No man would listen to you talk
if he didn't know it was his turn
next. —F. W. Howe.

'Dissident' Worshipers Pray at Temple Mount

ute Hanuka prayer service was
held on the edge of the of the Tem-
ple Mount in East Jerusalem by
seven members of the "Ariel"
group which has rejected a chief
rabbinate ruling that all of the
present enclosure of the Moslem
Holy Place on the Mount should be
considered part of the original

Temple grounds. The latter are
considered too holy for present day
Jews to enter. The chief rabbi of
the armed forces, Maj Gen
Shlomo Goren, is one of the reli-
gious authorities who holds that
the southwestern part of the com-
pound was not part of the Temple
Mount proper. That was the site of
the Hanuka service.
