4 Leading Israelis Meet PLO Heads

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
Four prominent Israelis
of doveish or leftist orien-
tation met with two lead-
ers of the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization at a
private home in Paris last
weekend.
The meeting, arranged
at the initiative of the
PLO, ended inZonclu-
sively, sources here said.
The Israeli particip-
ants were identified as
MK Meir Payil of Moked;
Gen. (Res.) Matityahu
Peled; Yaacov Arnon,
former director general of
Israel's Finance .Minis-
try; and Uri Avneri,

editor of the magazine,
Haolam Haze. The PLO
leaders were not iden-
tified by mutual agree-
ment. Israeli sources said
they were not Farouk
Kaddoumi or Said Ham-
ni a i.

Moked confirmed the
facts of the meeting. The
PLO was apparently in-
terested in discussing the
situation in Lebanon and
Israel's involvement
there. But no agreements
were reached.
It was learned that the
Israelis said they were
prepared to help create

the basis for a dialogue
with the PLO and mutual
recognition if the PLO
was prepared to acknow-
ledge Israel's right to
exist in its pre-June, 1967
borders.
But the PLO people re-
portedly were reluctant
to make any commitment
involving the recognition
of Israel. According to the
sources, they suggested
that PLO participation in
the Geneva peace confer-
ence could be taken by Is-
rael as defacto recogni-
tion. The Israeli particip-
ants rejected this as a
basis for a dialogue.

French Socialist Delegation
Led by Mitterrand Visits Israel

TEL AVIV — Said
Abdul Hak, of the Druze
village Harfish near the
Lebanese border, is the
first Druze colonel in the
Israeli Army. His rank
was awarded to him in a
solemn ceremony at the
General Staff by the
Commander of the
Northern front, General
Eytan Raful. It was a
special event not only for
the officers, who serve to-
gether with Colonel
Abdul Hak, but for the
whole Druze community
in Israel, who were very
proud of this honor.
The ceremony had also
a political meaning. It
served to foster the
friendly mutual relations
between Jews and Druze
in Israel, who are trying
to improve their social
standing.
Young Druze leaders
have often asked Israeli
politicians, why Syrian
Druze attain the highest
military and civilian
ranks and posts, but not
so in Israel.
Said Abdul' Hak was
among those Druze, wily
20 years ago appealed to
the Druze in Israel to en-
list in the Israeli Army. It
is significant, that 11
youngsters of his village,
Harfish, were killed in
fighting against the Arab
armies the War of In-
dependence. The village
also has a memorial for its
war dead of 1948.
Colonel Hak was born
in Ein Ata near Mt. Her-
mon in Lebanon. His fam-
ily came to Eretz Yisrael
in 1943. Said Abdul Hak
went to work immedi-
ately after finishing
elementary school, in
order to support his fam-
ily.
In 1957 he joined the Is-
raeli Army. He distin-
guished himself in mili-
tary service and was sent
to the Military Academy.
He took part in the Six
Day War and in the Yom
Kippur War, and distin-
guished himself espe-
