claimed, in an official
statement to the press,
that three Israeli army
officers attended the
demonstration. The
statement itself, from UN
headquarters in
Jerusalem, 'was un-
precedented. Israeli mili-
tary sources said that
only one army officer was
in' Nakoura at the time,
accompanied by his
driver and radio oper-
ator, and that he went
there to try to calm the
situation after two
Lebanese officers were
kidnapped. The officer
was identified as Yoram
Hamizrachi.
The UN did not comment
on the Israeli version but
insisted that Hamizrachi
was at the scene before the
kidnappings.
The Christians broke into
the headquarters of UN-
IFIL and destroyed a
Lebanese army helicopter.
The demonstration was in
support of demands that
UNIFIL take up positions
between the Syrian army
and Christian forces in Be-
irut.
According to sources in
Jerusalem, the Lebanese
officers were not kidnapped

but were taken into "protec-
tive custody" by Christian
militia commander Maj.
Haddad Saad to prevent
them from being lynched.
In Paris on Monday
French Foreign Minister
Louis de Guiringaud
blamed the Christian
militia and Israel for the re-
cent Lebanese bloodbath.
He charged that the militia
had started the recent fight-
ing with Israel's help so as
to bring about an inter-
natioal intervention which
would untimately lead to
Lebanon's partition.
He said Israel had
encouraged the Christian
militia of former
President Camille Cha-
moun by supplying it
with heavy weapons, in-
cluding American-made
Sherman tanks. De-

Court Ignores
Skokie Appeal

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The U.S. Supreme Court de-
clined to consider an appli-
cation for an appeal by the
village of Skokie, Ill., to air
the principles involved in
the effort by the National
Socialist Party, an Ameri-
can Nazi group, to march in
that heavily Jewish-
populated Chicago suburb
last April.
The village of Skokie had
appealed the Seventh Cir-
cuit Court's decision that
denied the application to
bring the •entire case to a
judicial hearing in a U.S.
court. The U.S. District
Court in Chicago had also
turned down the applica-
tion. A significant factor in
the Supreme Court's deci-
sion was the dissent from
the majority opinion writ-
ten by Justice Harry A.
Blackmun and concurred in
by Justice Byron R. White.
Blackmun argued in a
long opinion that the Sup-
reme Court should hold a
hearing and ultimately de-
cide on future cases • of this
kind. In a previous decision,
the Supreme Court had re-
fused to consider an appeal
by Skokie that it deny a
permit to the Nazis to
march through the village.
Skokie therefore granted
the permit but the Nazis did
not use it and did not march.

Nazi Found?

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Federal and Congressional
officials responsible for fer-
reting out former Nazis liv-
ing in the United States
have declined to discuss re-
ports that Liudas Kairys,
56, a native of Lithuania
who resides in Chicago's
southwest side, is a former
SS guard.
According to media re-
ports, Kairys was trained at
the infamous Travniki
"school for death" in
German-occupied Poland
and then assinged to Treb-
linka.

Guiringaud said that
both France and the
United States had asked
Israel last week to stop
supplying the Christian
forces with • heavy
weapons.

De Guiringaud's state-
ment was the strongest
anti-Christian and anti-
Israel attack to have been
voiced in the West since the
start of the fighting. France
has up to now energetically
supported, at least orally,
the Christian cause and de
Guiringaud's statement is
expected to provoke a storm
of opposition from within
both government backers
and opposition leaders.

De Guiringaud said the
fighting broke out in Leba-
non when the Christian
militia launched an attack
against the Syrian forces in
the country. He said the at-
tack was carried out "after
careful planning" and
added, "We knew since
early September that an at-
tack against the Syrian
forces (in Lebanon) was

being planned."
Both the Zionist Organ-
ization of America and Bnai
Brith have wired President
Carter about the Lebanese
situation. The ZOA called
for a UN Security Council
condemnation of Syria and
Bnai Brith asked that the
U.S. withdraw the recently
passed $90 million in U.S.
economic aid for Syria.
