Despite Apology, Israel Officer Firing Asked by Arabs

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Arab

have made questioning the
loyalty of Israeli Arabs.
Ben-Gal was repri-
manded by Defense Minis-
ter Ezer Weizman after he
was quoted as telling a
group of Knesset members
that the Arabs of the Galilee
were "a cancer in the body of
the nation" and were wait-
ing for the moment "when
they can screw us."
A Davar correspondent,
who recorded the general's
comments, backed Ben-
Gal's claim that he had not
used the word "cancer" but
had said that the neglect of
the Golan Heights is a
malady in Israel's body.
Ben-Gal said he did not
mean to link this comment
with the Galilee Arabs.
Defense Ministry
sources said that Weiz-
man, after reprimanding
Ben-Gal, made it clear
that the Galilee Arabs are
Israeli citizens and no
one has a right to cast
doubts on them.
He also made it clear that

it is the government which
will decide whether to es-
tablish more settlements on
the Golan Heights. Ben-Gal
had also been quoted as tel.-
ling the MKs that there was
no more room on the Golan
for additional Jewish set-
tlements.
The Regional Council of
Jewish Settlements in the
Galilee had earlier issued a
statement defending Ben-
Gal. "What the general is
alleged to have said may
have been said in a rough
way, but in essence they are
true," the council said.
Ben-Gal, who claimed he
did not know reporters were

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Members of the Gush
Emunim settlement of
Kedumim on Monday
abandoned a one-acre plot of
land adjacent to their set-
tlement which they seized
illegally Sunday, thus
avoiding a clash with troops
which had been sent to evict
them.
The settlers, who had cut
the barbed-wire separating
their settlement on an army
base from the land which is
tilled by Arabs, agreed to
leave after National Reli-
gious Party MK Haim
Druckman and an official of
the Agriculture Ministry
suggested the settlers send
a delegation to Jerusalem to
discuss the need for more

Druze MK Zeid an
Atashi of the Democratic
Movement, MK Shmuel
Toledano, an adviser to
the premier on Arab af-
fairs in the former Labor
governments, said Ben-
Gal was apparently ig-
norant of the enormous
damage his reamrks have
caused Israel both inside
and outside the country.
He said the number of dis-
loyal Arabs was minor com-
pared to the majority who
are loyal to the state.

land for West Bank settle-
ments.
The decision came as the
army was moving into the
seized land on which the
settlers had put up several
mobile homes.
Kedumim was set up
following the repeated
Gush Emunim attempts
to settle near Nablus dur-
ing the Rabin govern-
ment. At first, it was
designated as merely an
adjunct to an army camp
in the area and was
placed within the army
camp perimeter. Since
then it has grown and
flourished, and, while
still within the perimeter,
it is now plainly in need of
room for expansion.
The government and the
World Zionist Organization
settlement department,
however, had arranged for
Kedumim to take over the
rest of the army camp,
which is soon to be vacated
by the military. Govern-
ment and WZO officials con-
tend that this would provide
Kedumim, which now has
some 100 families, with
ample land for all future
needs.
The settlers, however, are
dissatisfied with this offer.
They argue that the army
camp lands earmarked for
their expansion are low-
lying while they have their
hearts set on the surround-
ing hillsides.
The hillsides are owned
either by local Arab vil-
lagers or by absent Arabs
who have leased them to
local people, while the army
camp lands are state-
owned.
Emunim rejects any
distinction between the
various categories of
land-ownership and con-
tends that the require-
ments of the West Bank
Jewish settlements
should take priority,
where necessary, over
local Arab ownership or
usage rights with the
owners or users receiv-
ing adequate cash com-
pensation or alternative
land elsewhere.
Sunday's takeover was in
conjunction with a Gush
campaign to force the gov-
ernment to enact legislation
allowing the takeover of
Arab land in Judea and
Samaria for Jewish settle-
ments.

Survivors Lunge at Lawyer
Defending Arab Terrorists

TEL AVIV — Survivors
of an Arab terrorist mas-
sacre lunged at an Israeli
lawyer defending two
Palestinians charged with
the killings in a military
court on Sunday.
The courtroom in Rehovot
was charged with tension as
survivors described how
Palestinian terrorists, who
on March 11 of last year
landed on the coast from
Lebanon, hijacked a bus on
the Haifa-Tel Aviv highway
and went on a two-hour
shooting rampage.
Thirty-four Israelis were
killed and 72 injured, and
nine terrorists were killed.
The prisoners, Khaled
Hussein, 22 years old, and
Hussein Fiad, 19, were the
only members of the band
who survived.
When the prisoners
entered the courtroom on
Sunday, the older one's face
was bruised and the
younger man had his left

arm in a plaster cast. They
whispered to their attorney,
Mrs. Leah Tsemel, who then
told the court her clients
had complained of a beating
from wardens.
The presiding judge, Col.
Sharon Alpering, ordered
the commissioner of prisons
to investigate the com-
plaint.

A hint to the wise is suffi-
cient.
