for military service because
of a new law that auto-
matically exempts religious
women from such duties.
Ms. Gilad, who is not reli-
gious, , was released after
she agreed to report for in--
duction.
She said she had made
her point which is that
non-religious women are
discriminated against by
being required to serve
while women claiming reli-
gious beliefs do not.
The Defense Ministry
appeared embarrassed
by the episode and De-
puty Defense Minister
Mordechai Zipori met
with a deputation of pro-
testors. The Ministry is-
sued a statement saying
tkat there has been no in-
crease in the proportion
of eligible women exemp-
ted from military service
since the new law went
into effect last year.
The law was passed with
government backing at the
demand of the religious par-
ties in the coalition. It
grants exemption to any
woman on her own declara-
tion that she is religious.
Previously, women claim-
ing exemption on religious
grout:ids were carefully
screened and questioned by
a panel to make sure they
were bona fide.

More than 3,000 gentiles
have been cited by Yad
Vashem as "Righteous
among the nations."

Peres"Slip of the Tongue'
Causes Dismay to Laborites

TEL AVIV (JTA ► — A re-
ported "slip of the tongue"
by Labor Party chairman
Shimon Peres on the issue of
Jewish settlements on the
West Bank has dismayed
many Laborites, but
pleased Likud which is still
smarting over Foreign
Minister Moshe Dayan's
remarks about the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion.
The Peres gaff occurred
during a banquet in honor of
visiting Defense Secretary
Harold Brown tendered by
U.S. Ambassador Samuel
Lewis to which leaders of
both government and oppo-
sition factions were invited.
In response to a question,

Israel Praised
for Lebanon Aid

ROME (JTA) — Maj.
Haddad, leader of the Chris-
tian militia in South Leba-
non accused the United
States and the Vatican of
abandoning Lebanon to in-
vasion and occupation by
Syria. "The only disin-
terested help we receive
today comes from Israel,"
but that is not enough Had-
dad said in an exclusive
interview published in Il
Giornale Tuesday. --
He said that "Arab ex-
tremists" cannot stand to
see Arabs and Israelis get-
ting along as they do in the
border area where Israel
maintains an "open fence"
policy. He claimed their aim
was to repopulate the bor-
der region with fedayeen
and to create psychological
obstacles to the peace talks
in the Middle East.
Haddad charged that the
U.S. and the Vatican had
failed to react against "the
Syrian military occupation"
of Lebanon. He said "that
there is a religious war
going on between Moslems
and Christians is a monstr-
ous lie." He claimed that the
Palestinian refugees of
1948 were "completely ab-
sorbed" and the real trouble
started "with the invasion
of armed Palestinians sent
by Syria."

Leaders Meet
in California

LOS ANGELES (JTA) —
In what -a spokesman called
"a significant new depar-
ture in our work," the .Con-
ference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations held its first
meeting in California re-
cently at the invitation of
the Los Angeles Jewish
Federation-Council.
Theodore Mann of
Philadelphia, chairman of
the Conference of
Presidents, said the meet-
ing was "a major step for-
ward in our efforts to bring
West Coast Jewish com-
munities into our delibera-
tions and our policy-making
process."
The visit was under-
taken, it was learned, in re-
sponse to a "feeling of isola-
tion" on the part of the Los
Angeles Jewish leadership.

Peres is alleged to have said
that if Labor returned to
power, it would remove
Jewish settlements in the
Judea and Samaria regions
while settlements in the
Jordan Valley might come
under Jordanian sover-
eignty.
According to accounts
by a person attending the
gala, former Premier Yit-
zhak Rabin and former
Commerce Minister
Haim Barley sought
rescue their colleagu
from embarrassment.
They were quick to ex-
plain that Peres really
meant to say that the set-
tlements in the Jordan Val-
ley would remain under Is-
raeli sovereignty while
those in the heavily Arab
populated regions could
come under another sover-
eignty provided that a peace
.agreement was reached be-
tween Israel and Jordan.
Peres promptly agreed that
that was indeed what he
had meant.
