Israelis Hit Lebanon, Stay
on Full Alert for Terrorists

JERUSALEM — Israel i
troops landed with helicopters
in the south Lebanon town
of Majdal Zoun, blew up the
home of its headman, then
kidnaped the man and his
older son.
The helicopters overflew
the town shortly before sun-
rise, then the force of about
150 troops walked into the
town from several directions,
the'witnesses said.
Israelis said the father and
son were being "detained"
for questioning. "Both were
known to have cooperated
with terrorists," they said.
It was the third Israeli
attack on Lebanese territory
in five-days but the first time
in months that an infiltration
squad was reported to have
brought back Leb ane s e
The mountain frontier be-
tween Israel and Lebanon has
been tense since Oct. 12 when
five or more Arab terrorists
crossed the border, apparent-

with talks being held in Jer-

Henry A. Kissinger. The
raiding party went into hid-
ing and was never found.
Over the weekend, a Rus-
sian rocket hit a home on
the outskirts of Kiryat She-

mona, but none of the occu-
pants were injured.

Tel Aviv, Israel's largest
city, will hold a practice drill

people, care for the injured
and provide food, water and
essential services in the event
of a missile attack.
Senior army officers and
civilian officials will witness

According to the plans,
school children will be desig-

center will participate as
adult "victims" requiring

—Yassir Arafat, the leader
of the Palestine Liberation
Organization has applied for
a visa to come to the United
Nations for the General As-
sembly debate next week on
the Palestine question, it was
learned. Wednesday.
But Courtney Sheldon,
spokesman for the U.S. mis-
sion here, refused to confirm
or deny that a visa applica-
tion had been made, although
previously he had made de-
nials to the same qudstion.
Sheldon also refused to
comment on whether the U.S.
agrees with Israel's view that
the PLO is a terror organi-
It was learned here that
Arafat has been advised to
come for 24 hours and may
be the first speaker in the
assembly discussion. The
secrecy surrounding Arafat's
arrival is attributed to se-
curity reasons.

opens Nov. 13, is expected
to take at least 10 full as-

Fulbright Tells
Israel: Make

J. W. Fulbright predicted
last weekend that another
Arab-Israeli war could de-
stroy Israel and claimed that
a settlement to avert war
would require Israel to with-
draw to "her approximate
borders of 1967" and relin-
quish East Jerusalem to in-
ternational control.
The Arkansas Democrat,
chairman of the Senate For-
eign Relations Committee,
said in a lecture at Westmin-
ister College in Fulton, Mis-
souri that another war be-
tween Israel and the Arabs
would . be more protracted
and devastating because both
sides had more deadlier wea-
pons and were prepared to
use them.
In proposing his terms for
a settlement Fulbright also
recommended "self-determ-
ination for the Palestinian
people of the West Bank,"
United Nations supervision of
the settlement and a U. S.
treaty with Israel to guaran-
tee her territory and inde-
"On the basis of unofficial
soundings there is reason to
believe that the Soviet Union
would be - prepared to join in
such a settlement, including
the guarantee of Israel," Ful-
bright said.
He noted that a settlement
might lead eventually to a
significant reduction in oil
prices. A settlement would
"create a much improved
environment for negotiations
on oil supply and prices," he
The 69-year-old Senator,
who was defeated this year
in a primary election, traced
the danger of inflation to an
imbalance of international
payments "caused by the
quadrupling of the price of
oil since the October war" in
1973. He stated that the only
way to avoid economic col-
lapse and political upheaval
is to get a Mideast settle-

mile ,radius measured from
mid-town Manhattan.
Meanwhile, a delegation of
Jewish leaders from the Con-
ference of Presidents of Ma-
jor American Jewish Orga-
nizations, headed by Rabbi
Israel Miller, met with the
United States Ambassador to
the United Nations, John
Scali, and discussed with him

estine Liberation Organiza-

cause they came from Is-

He declared that his coun-
try not only abhorred the
means of the PLO, which is
terrorism, but opposes their
objective, which is Israel's
The PLO is not a liberation
movement. "They are for
abolishing the liberty of
another people," he declared.
He said that while Israel can-
not prevent the ' PLO from
entering the UN "we can
and we will stop the terror-
ists from entering Israel."
A tumultuous o v a tion
greeted Dayan who declared,
"I want to assure you that
the future of Israel will be
determined not by the PLO
and not in Rabat" but by
Israel and the Jewish people.
He said that no matter what
the PLO claims to be, "they
are terrorists" and they are
rejected, even by the Arabs
living in Israel.
Dayan recalled that
throughout the 26 years of
Israel's independence, Jews
and Arabs in Israel have
lived in peace. The terror,
he said, comes from outside,
from Lebanon and Syria.
Rabbi Israel Miller, chair-
man of the Conference of
Presidents of Major Ameri-
can Jewish Organizations,
praised the New York City
Police Department for its
cooperation in handling se-
curity for the rally. In addi-

plainclothesmen, he said, the

Governor Malcolm Wilson
issued a proclamation des-
ignating Nov. 4 as "Protest
Against Terror and Injustice
Day." In his proclamation,
Wilson said the UN vote to
invite the PLO to take part
in the forthcoming General
Assembly debate was "inde-
fensible, unconscionable and
unworthy." He added: "I
join millions of my fellow-
citizens in urging that the
UN rescind this endorsement
of barbarism and bloodshed.
Those who would murder in-
nocent men, women and chil-
dren do not have any right
to sit at the table of peace."
