Russia Trains Hundreds of Palestinians'
in Terrorist Schools Says Journalist

LONDON (JTA) — The
Soviet Union is training
"Hundreds of Palestinians"
in terrorist -schools near
Moscow and along the Black
Sea, and there are similar
training camps in Bulgaria
and Czechoslovakia, a
British newspaper reported.
Details of the connection
between the Soviet Union
and the Palestinians were
given in the Daily Tele-
graph by journalist Robert
Moss, a specialist on sub-
'rsion who two weeks ago
tended the Jerusalem
conference on terrorism.
Moss said that because of
the Soviet support for PaleS-
tinian terrorism, as well as
its toll of innocent lives, it is
a "tragic error" for any
Western government to con-
fer legality on the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
He named the Military
Academy at Simferopol
in the Crimea as "a pri-
mary reception center for
PLO men selected for
sabotage and terrorist
training in the Soviet
Union." Courses, said to
include river crossings
and all types of sabotage,
are attended by mixed
groups of 50 to 60 PLO
trainees, drawn from
different guerrilla organ-
izations according to a
quota system.
A "typical" course at Sim-
feropol included recruits
from Yasir Arafat's El
Fatah, the Syrian backed Al
Saiqa, the Palestine Libera-
tion Front and George
Habash's Popular Front for
the Liberation of Palestine.
Moss claims that Palesti-
nians of above-average

.

aptitude are sometimes
transferred to special
courses in KGB or GRU
(Soviet military intelli-
gence) schools, which also
receive a steady intake of
intelligence officers from
Libya, Syria, Iraq and
South Yemen.
In the Soviet view, Moss
added, the PLO is a "tre-
mendously useful asset." It
can supply shock troops,
like the members of Idi
Amin's bodyguard in
Uganda; subversive agents
in the Persian Gulf sheikh-
doms and Saudi Arabia
that can now hold a knife to
the throats of pro-Western
monarchs";. and "all-
purpose terrorists," he
wrote. The PLO "can also
serve as the middleman in
supplying arms to the na-
tional liberation move-
ments," as well as carrying
out missions of specifically
Soviet rather than Palesti-
nian interest.

Brandt have now seen fit to
accord," referring to the re-
cent meeting of Kreisky,
Brandt and Arafat.
He continued: "For the
sake of a cosmetic detente
with Russia, there has been
a malign tendency on the
part of some Western gov-
ernments to keep from the
public the mounting body of
evidence now in the hands
of Western intelligence
services of Soviet guidance
for the PLO and interna-
tional terrorism.
It is time for all civilized
nations to stand shoulder to
shoulder on the issue of in-
ternational terrorism and
condemn those (like Chan-
cellor Kreisky) who have
been ready, for the sake of
short term expediency, to
accord a false respectability
to those who murder women
and chirdren with the aid of
the KGB."

"One such case was the

Head of Israeli TV Fired;
Employees Stage Protest

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The managing committee of
the Israel Broadcasting
Authority (IBA) voted 4-2
Monday not to renew the
term of Arnon Zuckermann,
director of national televi-
sion. His ouster, however,
has sparked a' revolt by
television employes who
charged that Zuckermann
was not removed for profes-
sional reasons but because
he refused to follow the
Likud party line in the per-
formance of his duties.
Four coalition represen-
tatives on the managing
committee voted against
'uckermann, two of the
.bor Alignment voted in
nis favor and another, re-
presenting Likud's Liberal
Party Wing, abstained.
While the committee was
deliberating, several
hundred television em-
ployes marched outside of
IBA headquarters chanting
"independent television"
and "free State, free televi-
sion." They accused Likud
of politicizing the Broad-
casting Authority, an inde-
pendent quasi-
governmental agency.
Prof. Reuven Yaron, the
Likud appointee who heads
the IBA, said in an inter-
view yesterday that he
would quit if Zuckermann

was approved for another
term. He said the manage-
ment committee was acting
in accordance with the,
broadcast law and that IBA
employes had no right to
dictate its decisions. Educa-
tion Minister Zevulun
Hammer, a leader of the
National Religious Party,
has demanded on several
occasions that Zuckermann
be replaced.
Yosef Lapid, another
Likud appointee who is di-
rector general of the IBA, is
expected to take over Zuc-
kermann's job until a new
TV director is named.
The television workers
committee issued a state-
ment saying that they have
lost confidence in the ability
of the managing committee
to discuss or rule on any
issue without political bias.
The workers said the man-
aging committee has no
right to appoint a new TV
director and that anyone so
appointed would have no
cooperation frog) the work-
ers.
