An Israeli Oncology Clinic
Is Helping West Bank Arabs

The Israeli government
has established a cancer
treatment program in an
Arab hospital near
Bethlehem which has
treated more than 400
patients in its 18-month
- Dr. Yoav Horn, director of
the once-a-week clinic at
Beit Jala government hos-
pital, was in the Detroit
area this week as part of a
three-week visit to' the U.S.
Dr. Horn is also director
of oncology at Assaf Harof
Hospital near Tel Aviv. He
said the Beit Jala oncology
clinic is now seeing 40-45
patients each Tuesday in an
effort to give treatment
close to the patients' homes.
All 16 hospitals in
Judea and Samaria refer
patients to the clinic.
Patients are also referred
by private doctors and
are coming from Jordan.
Dr. Horn said the clinic
relieves some problems for
the patients in terms of
speaking Arabic and travel-
ing. The clinic has also
served to educate Arab
physicians on the West
Dr. Horn and another Is-
raeli doctor are aided by an
Arab doctor, nurse and sec-

Arafat to France without
fixing a date for the visit.

Anti-Israel Move
in WPU Defeated

— An attempt by Iraq and
Kuwait to oust Israel from
the World Postal Union
(WPU) was thwarted by a
majority of the delegates
from 142 countries.
The motion by Kuwait
and Iraq to modify the para-
graph in the WPU's regula-

two-thirds of the organiza-

member was defeated. The
two Arab delegations pro-
posed a simple majority vote
to oust Israel. - -

The representative, Gabriel
Robin, head of the French
Foreign Ministry's Political
Department, met last Fr'
day with Arafat in Beim,

Such a declaration,
French sources say, would

by the PLO and somehow
