Israel Says It Won't Tolerate
Attacks on Lebanon Christians

JERUSALEM (JTA)—Is-
\ rael declared Tuesday that
it would not "stand idly by"
— if Lebanese Christian en-
claves adjacent to its north-
ern border were attacked.
Foreign Minister Yigal Al-
Ion made the warning pub-
lic during a television inter- •
view, but it is understood
that a similar message had
been transmitted earlier.
through U.S. auspices, to
13, "- the Levanese and the
S
n governments.
yilon in his interview
noted that to date the Pales-
tinian attacks on the Chris-
tians had been outside the
Christian enclaves.
At the Cabinet meeting
earlier in the day Allon out-
lined the four cardinal prin-
ciples which molded Is-
rael's stance towards the
ongoing battles in southern
Lebanon. His statement
was later made available to
the media.
The four principles were:
• Israel would not tolerate
an advance of Synrian or
"inter-Arab" forces south-
wards from the line they
now hold. (At present Syr-
ian forces are stationed
about 20 kilometres north of
the border, a line to which
they withdrew after Febru-
ary's tense standoff with Is-
rael. Israel television said
Tuesday that some 30,000
Syrian troops and 400 tanks
were sighted some 30-40
kms north of the border
and -Israel's entire north-
ern border was being pre-
pared to meet the possi-
bility of a Syrian thrust. -
• Israel would not tolerate
hits by Palestinian terror-
ists. whether by infiltration
across the border or by
shooting or shelling from
the Lebanese side.
• "As Jews with so much
experience of persecution"
Israel would not tolerate at-
tacks on the neighboring
Christian villages, and

would not permit a slaugh-
ter of friendly Christians
who are within our
reach."
(Wednesday morning
there were grateful reac-
tions from Lebanese Chris-
tians on the northern bor-
der.)
• Israel would not tolerate
any disturbance of its hu-
manitarian aid efforts at
the "good fence."
Meanwhile. more than 30
Lebanese. mostly youths
and children, were in Is-
raeli hospitals this week for
treatment of injuries suffer-
ed in the continuing fighting
between Moslems and Chris-
tians in Southern Lebanon.
The injured were brought
to Israel through the open-
ing in the border fence.
A Christian militiaman
who participated in the
battle for the village of
Hiam, now in the hands of
Palestinian terrorists, re-
portedly told Israelis that
the terrorists killed or
wounded any Lebanese sus-
pected of having received
medical aid or any ether as-
sistance from Israel.
Reports from Lebanon
quoted terrorist sources as
Saying that they had
stopped fighting under
orders from PLO chief
Yasir Arafat. Arafat was
apparently acting under
pressure from Syria which
wants the Moslems and
Christians to stop the shoot-
ing lest it escalate to a
point where Israel might in-
tervene.
Likud MK Uriel Lin de-
manded that the govern-
ment intervene immedi-
ately in Lebanon on behalf
of the Christians. The same
demand was made by
Mayor Avraham Aloni of
the border town of Kiryat
Shmona. He also urged the
government to strengthen
Israel's border defense in
the north.

Zionism May Be Debate Topic
of Arabs, Allies at UN Parley

UNITED NATIONS

SOC) during its five-week
session which opened.

the occupied territories, Is-
raeli diplomats said that Is-
rael is prepared to prove
that these allegations are
spurious. They said Israel
will point out the fact that
those countries that accuse
it of human rights viola-
tions, namely the Arab and
Communist states, are
themselves to be blamed
for violations of human
rights.

Analysts Rate Sadat Poorly

Instead, analysts in-
dicated, he chose to be a
partisan advocate of his
own country and his imme-
diate interests without per-
ceptible movement towards
that full settlement of
which he himself spoke of
but failed to implement.
The best pro-Egyptian
American officials could
say of Sadat's visit was
that they were satisfied
with the tone of his detailed
talks with President Carter.
U.S. officials conceded
that Sadat's visit did not
move closer either the pro-
cedure for a conference or
the substance for a settle-
ment.

WASHINGTON (JTA)—
When Joseph Sisco was the
State Department's Middle
East expert before becom-
ing American University's
president last summer, he
was fond of saying that the
Arab-Israeli conflict was a
history of - lost opportu-
nities.
The latest of the losers ap-
pears to be Egyptian Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat. In his
three-day Washington visit,
with the world media fo-
cused on him, political ana-
lysts saw him fumbling the
finest chance of his long
campaign to win over Amer-
ica by being a champion of
a just Middle East,peace.
