Israel Replies to British Criticism for Sternists' Burial

Israel informed Britain this
week that the state funeral
held last week for two mem-
bers of the Stern Group who
assassinated Lord Moyne in
1945 was part of an "on-
going effort of national rec-
onciliation" that "in no way
implies a change in the atti-

Israel toward assassination
as a political instrument."
The message was deliv-

Israeli Ambassador in Lon-

Tzuri who were hanged
in Cairo 30 years ago.
The protest was tele-

Bernard Ledwige, on behalf

The Israeli reply stated
that "the fact that the gov-

the attitude of the govern-

why Callaghan should see
the slightest link between
an act of grace involving
the distant and present
terrorism in the Mideast to
which Callaghan rightly
says, we are all anxious to
put to an end.
"It is disappointing that
this gesture of human de-
cency toward men who died
over 30 years ago should be

and the Gaza Strip to Egyp-

and received in exchange
coffins bearing the remains
of Eliyahu Hakim and Ely-
ahu Beth Tzuri, who were
hanged in Cairo on March
23, 1945 for the murder of
Lord Moyne, the then Bri-
tish Resident Minister in
the Middle East.
The bodies were re-in-
terred with full military
honors at the military ceme-
tery on Mt. Herzl.
Hakim and Beth Tzuri
were members of the under-
ground Stern group of the
British Mandate era in Pa-
--- lestine. They assassinated
Lord Moyne in Cairo on
November (, 1944 and were
subsequently captured and
sentenced to death.
Relatives of both men
were at the Balooza check-
point in Sinai on June 25
when the bodies were ex-
changed for the terrorist
convicts. Also present were

(In Britain, meanwhile,
the Herut Movement issued
