Rabin said the U.S. fol-
lowed that course because it
did not want to take respon-
sibility for ending the UN
presence on the Golan.
In several speeches last
week Rabin vowed that Is-
rael would not participate in
any forum to which the PLO
was invited, but also re-
jected reports that there
were differences between
himself and Foreign Minis-
ter Yigal Allon on the issue.

Allon and Herzog were re-
ported to favor attending
those sessions not attended
by the PLO, and this policy
was apparently pushed by
U.S. Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger.

Kissinger confirmed in
Washington that he had
"indicated" to the Israeli
government that "it would
be better served" if it par-
ticipated in the Security
Council debate Jan. 12.

Kissinger said Tuesday it
was "of course, clear" that

stated this week that more
than two-thirds of the 109

were women and children.
In Israel, Sen. George S.
McGovern and the Israeli in-
formation services came
under attack in the press.
The South Dakota Demo-
crat was assailed for his
description of the Israeli air
strikes at terrorist targets
in Lebanon as "savage
bombing attacks by Israeli
pilots flying American
planes." The government
information apparatus was
taken to task for having
failed "once again" to ex-
plain the nature of the Air
Force action.

Haaretz expressed criti-
cism of Israel's air strikes
which, it said, were car-
ried out with excessive
force and thereby in-
creased the danger of in-
flicting casualities among

Haaetz contended that

there was no need to esca-

Israel is charged with re-
sponsibility for a massacre
of civilians and said that the
price Israel willhave to pay

bears no relation to the bor-
der security achieved by the
air strikes.
Other newspapers de-
manded to know why the in-
formation services failed to
make it clear that all targets
attacked by Israeli planes in
Lebanon Tuesday were out-
side of the refugee camps. If
any refugees were hit they-
were inside terrorist bases
and apparently collaborat-
ing with terrorists, but Is-
rael did not get this across
to the rest of the world, the
papers said.
They noted that a school
building hit by Israeli
bombs had not been used as
a school for more than a
year but served as head-
quarters for the Syrian-
sponsored Al Saiqa terror-
ists. Similarly, what the
Lebanese described as a
farm attacked outside Tri-
poli was, in fact, a terrorist
training base, the Israeli
newspapers claimed.

UN Proposals Aim at Israel

(JTA) — Resolutions
adopted by the General As-
sembly Monday to finance

and Works Agency for Pa-
lestine Refugees (UNRWA)
were blasted by Israeli rep-
Ambassasor Jacob Doron,
speaking before the vote,
focussed,his attack on one of
four resolutions that urged
Israel to take immediate
steps for the "return of the
displaced inhabitants" and
"to desist from further re-
moval of refugees and de-
struction of their shelters."
Doron said this resolution
contained untruths • and
made unreasonable de-
mands on Israel. It did not,
he said, reflect the real situ-
ation because the all-per-
vading enmity Arab coun-
tries have shown toward
Israel did not allow for the
full return of the refugees.
He said that construction
was being undertaken by
the Israeli government to
provide proper housing for
the refugees and Israel was
not destroying the
"shelters" mentioned in the

by an 84-3 vote with 18 abs-

the dissenting votes.
Speaking to reporters out-
side the Assembly hall, Is-

sentative to the UN,
Ambassador Chaim Herzog,
said of the UNRWA resolu-
tion: "Eight hundred thou-
sand Jewish refugees left

years and were absorbed,
