Security Council 'Futility' Marked by Narrow
Approach; Who Listens to Israel's Replies?
By Jewish News Special
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. -
Futility" is the verdict in many
quarters in relation to the repeated
accusations against Israel.
Without taking into account the
endless attacks on Israel, there
are constant calls for Security
Council meetings for t he purpose
of condemning Israel.
Israel's Prime Minister Golda
Meir has stated that Israel's
attacks on terrorists in Lebanon
are not aimed at Lebanese but at
the El Fatah and the guerrillas.
Yet Beirut now does some com-
plaining. But as the New York
Times stated edibirially on Wed-
nesday, "The Security Council
meeting called to discuss Israel's
air raids against Arab guerrillas
on Lebanese soil will be another
exercise in futility if it limits itself
to Beirut's complaint."
More distressing than the Se-
curity Council meeting, even if it
proves to be another dud, as it
may well turn out to be, is the
manner in which accusations are
being leveled at Israel in charges
of looting in East Jerusalem and
mistreatment of Arabs in Israel-
held territory. Thus, from London
comes the report that the Ameri-
can wife of a Lebanese doctor told
a United Nations investigating
group in Beirut Wednesday that

Arab property in East Jerusalem

Mrse. Nancy Nolan Abi Haidar,
formerly of Grosse Ile, Mich.,
alleged that Israeli troops display-
ed "utter lack of respect for any

or UN." Mrs. Haidar made her
charges before the human rights

The fact is that the International
Red Cross watches the situation
in the Middle East and there has
not been a single accusation
against Israel except from preju-
diced Arab sources.
Israel continues to face many
problems here, but the misrepre-
sentations both at the UN and
vis a vis the false accusations of
mistreatment of Arabs represent
