Israel Forces Will Leave South Lebanon by June 13

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The Cabinet decided that
Israeli forces will complete
their withdrawal from
south Lebanon by June 13
and instructed the defense
minister and chief of staff to
make all necessary ar-
rangements including coor-
dination with the United
Nations Interim Force in
Lebanon (UNIFIL).
The evacuation is
scheduled to be completed
three months to the day
after Israeli forces invaded
south Lebanon following
the March 11 terrorist as-
sault on the Tel Aviv-Haifa
highway. It will include the
six-mile deep security belt
that Israeli troops continue
to hold along the Lebanese
border.
The date of June 13 was
selected on the assumption
that UNIFIL by then will
have just about reached its
maximum authorized
strength of 6,000 men, suffi-
cient to prevent the return
of armed Arab terrorists to
the region.

It was learned, mean-
while, that small groups
of terrorists have suc-
ceeded in penetrating UN
lines and are hiding out
in the countryside but not
attempting to enter vil-
lages.

In a related development,
when France sent its troops
to join the United Nations
Interim Force in Lebanon
the soldiers were ordered by
their superiors not to
fraternize with Israelis. The
Israelis were not to be
trusted, they were told.
But the fraternization
ban isn't working here any
more than it did in Ger-
many at the end of World
War II. In fact, French
soldiers of UNIFIL who
flock to Israel on leave are
embarrassed by it and
frankly tell their Israeli
hosts that it was unfair.
A French captain said, "I
can see now that it was a
calculated incitement. In
the Middle East the only
ones you can count on are
the Israelis," he said.

For rest and relaxation
there is no place to go but
Israel. It is easily reached
and is a safe haven. The
resort towns of Nahariya
and Tiberias have excel-
lent hotels and all forms
of entertainment and
recreational facilities.
Both are close to the
Lebanese border and
transportation is fast and
efficient.

In addition to providing
recreation, Israel is feeding
UNIFIL. The United Na-

Begin Peace Stand Called
Hard Line, DMC May Quit

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Three top leaders of the
Democratic Movement for
Change (DMC), two of them
cabinet ministers, have
given new impetus to
mounting sentiments
within the party to quit
Premier Menahem Begin's
Likud-led coalition gov-
ernment because of its hard
line stand on peace issues.
The strongest attack yet
on the government's
policies was made by the
DMC's deputy leader,
Amnon Rubinstein, in a
television interview Mon-
day. The former law profes-
sor who founded the Shinui
(Change) movement after
the Yom Kippur War, the
original nucleus of the
DMC, charged that the gov-
ernment's peace efforts
were in fact "anti-peace."
He said the Begin gov-
ernment has become "pro-
gressively severe" in its
positions and that the
cabinet majority composed
of Likud and the National
Religious Party "totally ig-
nored the DMC as if we do
not exist."

DMC leader Yigael
Yadin, who is deputy
premier, reacted coldly
to the voices of dissent.
He still maintains that the
DMC can have a modify-
ing effect on policy if it
remains in the govern-
ment. He chided Rubins-
tein for expressing his
views publicly before
taking them up in the
party's policy-making
bodies.

Meanwhile, a new group
called "Professors for True
Peace" has emerged to

tions army gets most of its
fresh vegetables, milk and
dairy products from Israel.
The friendly relations be-
tween UNIFIL soldiers and
Israelis are in sharp con-
trast to the growing tension
between UNIFIL comman-
ders and the leaders of the
Palestine Liberation
Organization.
While PLO chief Yasir
Arafat promised UN Secre-
tary General Kurt Wal-
dheim that his men would

cooperate, other PLO lead-
ers such as Yasir Abed
Rabbo and Zahier Mouhsein
have declared that the PLO
does not recognize Security
•Council Resolution 425 of
March 19 under which''UN-
IFIL was established. They
warned that they would -
take action against UNIFIL
soldiers who attempt to pre-
vent members of the PLO
from carrying out their war
against the "Zionist
enemy."

They said that while
the U.S. media has given
the impression of a di-
vided Israel, "most Is-
raelis see the Begin plan
as offering more sub-
stance and greater prom-
ise for real peace than
any proposal put for-
ward by any previous Is-
raeli government."

The organizational lead-
ers are: Burton M. Joseph,
national chairman, and
Benjamin R. Epstein, na-
tional director, Anti-
Defamation League of Bnai
Brith; Richard Maass,
president, and Bertram H.
Gold, executive vice
president, American Jewish
Committee; Howard M.
Squadron, president, and
Naomi Levine; executive
director, American Jewish
Congress; and Theodore R.
Mann, chairman, and Al-
bert D. Chernin, executive
vice president, National
Jewish Community Rela-
tions Advisory Council.

In newspaper ads Tuesday
signed by about 400 aca-
demicians, they accuse the
Peace Now movement of
distorting the situation.
They claim it is not the
Begin government but
Egypt that has responded
inflexibly to Israel's "gener-
ous offers."

In a related development,
the heads of four major
American Jewish organiza-
tions who visited Israel "to
