Israel Hits Vatican for Skirting Smuggling Issue in Capucci Case
cial sources here reacted
sharply to the Vatican's ex-
pression of "profound grief
and regret over the prison
sentence imposed by a Jer-
usalem court on Greek Catho-
lic Archbishop Hillarion Ca-
The sources noted that the
statement, by Vatican spokes-
man Federico Allesandrini,
"made no mention or any
condemnation of" the offens-
es for which the West Bank
cleric was convicted. These
included smuggling arms to
terrorists in Israel, main-
taining contacts with terror-
ist agents in Lebanon and
rendering services to an
The official sources said
they did not want to view
the Vatican's statement as
an indication of sympathy by
the Holy See with the actions
of a man who aided and abet-
ted terrorist activities.
Referring to Allesandrini's
charge that the sentencing
of Capucci had injured the
reputation of a land (Israel)
"where the leaders of reli-
gious communities have tra-
ditionally been surrounded
witih respect and regard,"
the sources noted that Israel
had always respected
"Church leaders who were
attention and interest, hoping
faithful to their high office"
and would continue to show
respect to such persons.
Capucci was found guilty
on six counts and was given
six sentences totalling 59
years. The court ruled that
the sentences would run con-
currently and he will, there-
fore, serve a maximum of
only 12 years. The Vatican
statement hinted that it had
hoped Capucci would be de-
ported after his trial.
Allesandrini, in the state-
ment released at the Vatican
said the Israeli action had
distressed "one of the most
glorious Catholic communi-
ties of the east, the Melkite
Church" and that the Vati-
can would continue to follow
the Capucci case "with all its
a solution that will favor—
rather than prevent—the re-
conciliation of spirits in the
