Israel's 'Champs Elysee'
Suffers From Terrorism

TEL AVIV (JTA)—Dizengoff
St., the fashionable "Champs
Elysee" of Tel Aviv, was hit by
Arab terrorists shortly after mid-
night Sunday. Heavy property dam-
age was caused when a parked
car, apparently loaded with high
explosives, blew up, destroyed
four other parked vehicles and
showered shrapnel and splintered
glass 200 feet in all directions.
Miraculously, only 11 persons on
the crowded thoroughfare was in-
jured, none of them seriously. An
Atherican couple, Mr. and Mrs.
Rdbert Furman, of New York
City, were hurt by flying glass.
They were released from the hos-
pital after treatment.
The explosion, which sent sleepy
householders thronging into the
streets, marked the second ter-
rorist attack in Israel's largest
city since last September when
a bomb blast in the Tel Aviv cen-
tral bus terminal killed one per-
son and injured about 70.
The El Fatah command in Beirut
claimed credit. It said that guer-
rillas planted 265 pounds of TNT
in an Israeli vehicle and that the
explosives were detonated by a
time fuse. Police arrested 20 Arab

suspects from nearby Jaffa, and
an investigation was under way.

house windows. Several trees were
uprooted, a street lamp was wreck-
ed and electric and telephone lines
were ripped down by the force of
the explosion.
A passerby remarked that the
scene was reminiscent of the Jew-
ish neighborhoods in Berlin after
the infamous "Crystal Night" in
1938. Armed guards were posted
at damaged shops to prevent pos-
sible looting.
The terrorists' aim was ob-

viously to inflict death and in-
jury on civilians. Dizengoff St.
on a warm Sunday night is jam-
med with strollers window shop-
ping or dropping in at a favorite
cafe for an aperitif with friends.
The surrounding neighborhood is
one of the best in Tel Aviv.

Former Premier David Ben-
Gurion's Tel Aviv home is only 300
yards from the scene of the explo-
sion. Many of the city's wealthiest
businessmen a n d professionals
have their homes nearby. Dizen-
coff St., named after the late Meir
Dizengoff, a former mayor of Tel
Aviv, was laid out in the mid-
1930s on what a generation ago
was largely farm land with an
occasional blacksmith's shop. It
soon surpassed the older Allenby
Rd. as Tel Aviv's main business
and shopping center.
Gen. Dayan had a busy night.
After inspecting the damage and
talking to witnesses, he visited
some of the injured in the hospital.
Residents of the area also stayed
up late. As soon as the police bar-
iers were removed, hundreds re-
turned to the sidewalk cafes for
iced coffee or vermouth and to
discuss the events of the night.

According to eye-witness ac-
counts, the explosives were
planted inside or underneath an
Israeli Army vehicle parked on
Keren Kayemeth Blvd., near its
busy intersection with Dizengoff
St. The boulevard is largely resi-
d ■ tntial and tree lined., Dizengoff
St. is a broad avenue of fashion-
able shops, sidewalk cafes and
movie theaters.

One of the first officials on the
scene was Israel's defense minis- Arab-Communist
ter, Gen. Moshe Dayan. He told
reporters that he was at general Terrorist Link
headquarters when news of the

"We must join forces so that
the economic pie available will
become larger and thus avoid
black•Jewish confrontations," he
said.
"We must prove as a lie the
charge that the small Jewish busi-
nessman in the ghetto is an ag-
gressor . . . He is also the victim
of a restrictive social and eco-

nomic system. On the other hand,
we must develop such standards
as will deny honor and status to
any Jew who profits from bigotry
and exploitation."
College students participating in
the gathering called on the Recon-
structionist movement to reassess
traditional Jewish teachings on
sex so that they could offer a
guide to Jewish youth on questions
of personal morality. One student
claimed that traditional Jewish law
was "repressive and frequently
irrelevant" and said "Young peo-
ple can take no guidance from it
III its present forth." •
