Israeli Police Seek Firearms
Following Tel Aviv Slum Riot

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Pol-
ice searched for firearms
Tuesday in the Hatikvah
Quarter in southeastern Tel
Aviv following Monday's
riots in which a live hand
grenade and molotov cock-
tails were used against pol-
ice. Five persons, including
three policemen, were in-
jured.
Eye-witnesses claimed to
have seen a sub-machine
gun during the fray. Police
reportedly discovered a
store where the Molotov
cocktails or firebombs were
made.
The riots, mainly by
cliim-dwelling youths, were
:led at blocking the demo-
on of buildings erected in
the district without a muni-
cipal license. Mayor Shlomo
Lehat attributed the illegal
building activity to a "land
grabbing mafia."
He said speculators in-
cited people to put up

'Germany Offers
Israel Support'

NEW YORK (JTA) —
"The greatest danger that
Israel faces today is a grow-
ing feeling of isolation from
the rest of the world. We
must give Israel all the sup-
port we can," said Walter
Hesselbach, president of the
German Workers Bank,
Germany's fourth largest
bank. "As for us, my col-
leagues and myself, we
pledge to continue our ef-
forts and will not let Israel
down."
Hesselbach, who is presi-
dent of the German Friends
of the Hebrew University,
made his remarks affirming
Germans' support for Is-
rael, whatever the country's
straits, at a reception held
in his honor by the Ameri-
can Friends of the Hebrew
University.
Sam Rothberg, chairman
of the Board of Governors of
the Hebrew University of
Jerusalem, presented the
Torch of Learning Award to
Hesselbach on behalf of the
American Friends.

money from the municipal-
ity as the price of evacuat-
ing the lots. A heavy police
guard surrounded Mayor
Lehat's home Tuesday
after he received several
telephone death threats.
The local residents claim
that demolition orders, is-
sued some time ago by
Mayor Shlomo Lehat, were
being carried out only in
poor neighborhoods while
illegally built houses in the
wealthy northern districts
of Tel Aviv were allowed to
stand.
Lehat said that illegal
structures would be demo-
lished no matter where they
are located.

U.S.-Syria-Israel
Plot Is Charged

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Syndicated columnist Ni-
cholas Von Hoffman be-
lieves there is credibility in
charges that there is "an
American-Syrian-Israeli
,n" for the destruction of
_canon.
Such a possibility was
suggested by Raymond Ed-
die, described by Von Hoff-
man in the New York Post
Tuesday as "the head of a
moderate Lebanese
Chris-
ri group. ),
According to Von Hoff-
man, Eddie believes that
since Israel will not give up
all of the Golan Heights,
Syria could be compensated
in a peace deal by being
given thelebanese port city
of Tripoli.
"It takes no special effort
of the imagination to think
that Kissinger would not
draw back from supplying
the guns to kill 10,000 Le-
banese to encompass this
goal."
