JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Funeral services with full
military honors were con-
ducted on Mt. Herzl Sunday
for retired Gen. David
("Dado") Elazar who died of
a heart attack April 15 in
Tel Aviv at the age of 51.
His death occurred just
two years and two days
after he resigned as Chief of
Staff of Israel's armed
forces following publication
of the Agranat Committee's
report which held him re-
sponsible for Israel's lack of
preparedness when the Yom
Kippur War broke out.
The Chief Chaplain of the
army, Gen. Mordechai Fi-
ron, officiated at the burial.
Six major generals served as
pall bearers. Premier Yit-
zhak Rabin and President
Ephraim Katzir were
among the mourners.
Earlier, streams of offi-
cers, civilians and govern-
ment officials visited the
general's widow, Thelma
Elazar, to offer condol-
ences. Former Premier
Golda Meir was among the
mourners at the Elazar
home as was former De-
fense Minister Moshe
Dayan who many Israelis
thought should have
shared the blame for Is-
rael's military shortcom-
ings on the eve of the Yom
Kippur War.
Elazar himself had said
that he bore no personal
grievances. But he often ex-
pressed bitterness in private
that the Agranat panel
faulted him for being taken
by surprise when Israel was
attacked by Syria and
Egypt in October 1973. He
contended that if he had
been shown the 400 reports
received by army intellig-
ence during the weeks prior
to the war he would have
improved the state of readi-
ness of the armed forces.
Friends quoted Elazar as
saying that if the reserves
had been called up one day
earlier — an order that
could have been given only

by the Prime Minister, on
the Defense Minister's rec-
ommendation — the course
of history might have been
changed.
The charges, prepared
two years ago by Elazar,
were released Monday, one
day after the funeral.
The Agranat report cred-
ited Elazar with the sub-
stantial victories Israel
achieved in the latter stages
of the Yom Kippur War, but
according to Elazar, that
aspect of the report was al-
ways played down.
Likud leader Menachem
Begin declared that Ela-
zar would be remembered
as one of Israel's greatest
field commanders.
Elazar was born in Yu-
goslavia, the son of a par-
tisan in Tito's guerrilla
forces that fought the Nazis
during World War II. He
came to Israel at the age of
15 and lived at several kibut-
zim before joining Palmach,
the attack unit of Hagana.
At the age of 24 he was
the youngest battallion
commander in Palmach. He
participated in several ac-

New West Bank Disturbances
Are Provoking Israeli Crises

(Continued from Page 1)
Tulkarem and Jenin high
schools were forced to close
as students boycotted
classes to participate in
demonstrations. The disor-
der in Jenin appeared to
stem less from the Gush
Emunim march than from
bitterness over the outcome
of the April 12 municipal
elections.
Jenin was one of the few
towns on the West Bank
where a moderate candidate
garnered the largest num-
ber of votes. But an extre-
mist, supported by national-
ist groups, may be

support of a majority of the

Local politics were also
blamed for the shootings in
Ramallah Friday and Satur-
day which claimed two lives.
Six-year-old Jamil Hamis
El Jum was killed when an
Israeli soldier accidentally

fired his rifle while strug-

A Ramallah business-
man, Abdul Nur Janho, de-
feated in his election bid a
week ago, was arrested
Friday for allegedly slaying
Khalil Issa, 42, in a political
dispute. The riots in which
the youngster was killed
grew out of the earlier
shooting.
In New York Monday,
Jewish youths demon-
strated for and against the
Gush Emunim at two sepa-
rate rallies near the United
Nations.
About 200 youngsters,
mostly yeshiva students,
gathered in Dag Hammar-
skjold Plaza to shout and
chant support. Four blocks
