Glom of speech and assembly
for Arabs, even during a
state of war? Due process?
Are there Arab-run schools
teaching in Arabic? Arab
representatives in the Par-
liament? Government recog-
nition of Moslem and Chris-
tian religious authority?
Can the Israeli point of view
be freely expressed any-
where in the Arab or Corn-
munist worlds?
• If Israel is "racist-
Zionist," why do 75,000
Arab workers cross the bor-
der to work there every day?
Why do thousands from all
over the Middle East seek
treatment in Israel's hospi-
tals? Can Jews expect the
same consideration in Arab
states? In the PLO-proposed
"secular democratic state?"
• Aside from war-torn
Lebanon and Israel, are
there secular democratic
states in the Arab world?
• PLO activity is
curbed by goveinment in
Egypt and Syria, and not
permitted to operate in
Jordan. Is its freedom to
operate in Lebanon con-
nected with the tragic
events there?
• Why, for nine months,
has the UN ignored the kill-
ing of thousands in Leba-
non, a UN Member State,
and concentrated so much
of its time on Israel's al-
leged mistreatment of Ar-
abs in occupied territories?
• Most Arab states are
officially Islamic, and PLO
"foreign minister" Kad-
doumi calls for a unified
Arab world in which Pales-
tine "resumes its historic
role as a bridge between the
Arab states west and east of
Suez and between Africa
and Asia." How does this
pan-Arab vision square with
the idea of a "secular demo-
cratic state?"
- • If the Soviet Union
wants peace, why does it
support Syrian-PLO efforts
to undermine the Sinai
agreement between Israel
and Egypt?
• Is it valid to assert
that the international
community endorsed. PLO
claims when the Western
democracies and parts of
the African and Asian
blocs have voted against
them, or registered, disap-
proval by abstaining or
absenting themselves, as
they did in the case of the
Zionism-racism vote in the
UN General Assembly?
• Why do the Syrians
and the PLO seek to break
the link, in Resolution 242,
between Israeli withdrawal
from occupied territories
and Arab recognition of Is-
rael's "right to live in peace
within secure and recog-

Egypt Cuts Army

TUNIS (ZINS) — The
Egyptian army will demo-
bilize 350,000 men, accord-
ing to local press reports.
This is the first significant
reduction in the size of the
Egyptian army since the
Yom Kippur.War in 1973.
According to press ac-
counts, Sadat's decision had
to do with the furthering of
his economic programs and
the freeing of more men for
essential labor.

nized boundaries," and to
undermine the decision in
Resolution 338 that "nego-
tiations start between the
parties concerned?" Do the
Syrians and the Soviet
Union expect peace to en-
sure?
• Can Israel, a UN Mem-
ber State, be expected to
participate in a Security
Council debate on an equal
footing with the PLO, which
is not a state and has never
renounced the ultimate goal
of its "National Covenant"
— her liquidation as a sover-
eign Jewish state? Would
this not be tantamount to
Israel's debating the terms
for her national suicide?
• If in December 1973,
when the U.S. and the
USSR invited Israel to par-
ticipate in the Geneva Con-
ference, they specifically
stated that participation by
additional parties would
depend on the decision of
the original conferees, why
are the Soviets today trying
to deny Israel the right to
decide on this vital matter?
• If the Israelis say
they are willing, without
preconditions, to negotiate
all issues on the Geneva
agenda, why was the Pa-
lestinian question brought

to the Security Council at
all?
• In contravention of its
own procedural rules, the
Security Council has per-
mitted the PLO to partici-
pate in its Palestine debate,
with the same rights as a
Member State. What are the
implications for the rule of
law and due process in the
UN and other international
forums? What are the dan-
gers to Member States in
the selective application of
UN law?
