amount from the contribu-

cessfully stymied by the
State Department for rea-
sons best known - to its
policymakers. •
Thus we have the paradox
of American dollars being
used to pay for a policy
which the U.S. officially op-
poses, for the benefit of an
-,organization the President
has condemned. As the Wall
Vt.Street Journal noted edito-
rially: "On- Nov. 29, the
United States will be foot-
ing a large part of the bill for
one of the more grotesque
'examples to date of the per-
verse force the UN has bp-
come in international poli-
tics."

rent case in which we spend
American dollars to frus-.

icy. Syria, leader of the "re-
jectionist" forces seeking to
overthrow the Camp David
accords, was scheduled to
receive $90 million in
.foreign aid from us this
year; Damascus has been
given $425 million since
• 1975 on the theory that this
would help lead to Syrian
moderation.

nian People - with a
$300,000 yearly slush fund.
To make better use of the
UN machinery for this pur-
pose, it also created a 'Spe-
cial Unit on the Palestinian
People" within the . UN
Secretariat with a budget of
some $500,000 a year.
,Among the tasks assigned
this unit is the organization
annually on Nov. 29 of a
special observance of the
anniversary of the UN
Palestine partition plan, to
mourn its adoption.
A feature of this year's
observance will be the pre-
miere of a - film, "Palesti-
nians Do Have Rights,"
produced by the UN's film
department for the Special
Unit at a cost of $80,000.
The film describes the mis
ery of Arab.refugees -in the
camps, depicts the Jewish
settlers in Palestine as ter-
rorist invaders, extols the
PLO and affords Arafat a
platform from which to de-
fend the PLO's terrorist ac-
tivities which have taken
such a terrible toll of lives.
The Special Unit has also
begun publication of a new-
letter to be distributed in
this country and other
Western nations where the
Special Unit feels the Arab
position is not adequately
supported.
The U.S. contributes 25
percent of the UN budget
and of its associated
agencies except the
Palestine Arab relief
agency where we pay
about 60 pgcent in 25
years, the American con-
tribution to this agency
has exceeded $620 mil-
lion. The American share
of the UN expenditure on

.

gress to approve the allo-
cation last year, the Ad-
.ministration,, on what
- basis it alone knows, told

Congress that "Syria ap-
pears to be committed to
a negotiated peace with
Israel." That eyewash
wasn't repcirted this year
but Congressmen were
told the grant was neces-
sary to keep the door
open in Damascus for
Secretary of State Vance.
The House eliminated the
Syrian grant from the aid
bill but reluctantly restored
it after extensive arm-
twisting with the provis
that it would be im-
plemented only if the
President believed the aid
would "serve the process of
peace in the Middle East."
Did it? Secretary Vance
couldn't even get to see Sy-
rian President Assad until
after a meeting of the rejec-
tion front which voted to
raise a billion dollars to
fight Camp David and
President Sadat of Egypt.
And immediately after the
House turnabout, Syria
showed how much it wanted
peace by launching a new,
murderous attack on the
Christians in Lebanon.
The world has managed
to shut its eyes to the
Lebanese tragedy which
began in 1975 when an al-
liance of the PLO and Mar-
xist Moslems, with the aid
and backing of Syria,
sought . to destroy the
Moslem-Christian gov-
ernmental structure.
Now, thousands of deaths
later, after the virtual de-
struction of a once-
prosperous and thriving na-
tion, we are at last begin-
ning to think about ways to
end the carnage because we
have finally learned that we
cannot hope to build a last-
ing peace in the Middle East
without an independent
Lebanon. It is not to our cre-
dit that we learned the les-
son only at such great cost to
others..
