mayors.
"The United Nations con-
tinues to fiddle while the
Middle East burns," he said.
"The future of two Arab
mayors who have openly
sided withe the terrorist
Palestine Liberation
Organization and fomented
violence that took the lives
of six Israeli citizens monop-
lizes the time and the atten-
tion of the Security Council
while the Soviet rape of Af-
ghanistan goes into its sec-
ond year and while the
mutual slaughter of Iran
and Iraq continues unre-
marked."
The Security Council's
unanimous vote on the two
Arab mayors, Fand
Kawasme of Hebron and
Mohammed Milhim of
Halhoul, was also de-
nounced by Yehuda Blum,
Israel's ambassador to the
Un. He told the Security
Council that Israel's judi-
cial system, which has an
"enviable reputation," had
ruled on the case and "we
cannot accept any attempt
to interfere with the judicial
process of our country."
He denounced the
council for hypocrisy in
considering the case for
the third time this year
while ignoring the Soviet
invasion of Afghanistan,
the Libyan invasion of
Chad, the Iran-Iraq war
and the ordeal of the
American hostages in
Iran.
The real bombshell in the
vote was that the United
States went along with the
other council members to
condemn Israel for expel-
ling the two mayors. It was
the first time since last
March that the U.S. had
voted against Israel in the
UN, and President Carter
himself repudiated that
vote after he came under
fire from American Jewish
organizations. However,
after the vote Friday eve-
ning, U.S. Ambassador
Donald McHenry stated,
"Cynics may claim that we
would have voted differ-
ently before Nov. 4, but I
can't be hostage to cynics."
As soon as the vote was
taken, Kawasme and
Milhim announced that
they would conduct a
hunger strike inside the
UN, hoping that this un-
precedented action would
force Israel to readmit
them. Secretary General
Kurt Waldheim gave the
two men personal permis-
sion to conduct their hunger
strike. The mayors had been
expelled originally last May
following the terrorist am-
bush killings of six yeshiva
students in Hebron. They
appealed against their ex-
pulsion and were again ex-
pelled earlier this month to
Lebanon.
Their hugner strike in
the UN building is un-

demonstrators have also
staged protests on the UN
premises but have been
removed by guards and
turned over to New York
City police. But Wal-
dheim gave his personal
permission for the sit-in
by the two mayors be-
cause, according to the
Secretary General's
spokesman, "In this case
there has just been a
unanimous Security
Council resolution. It is
not the same as coming in
from the street."
Wilhelm told the council
right after the vote was
taken: "We have no homes
to go back to and we con-
sider that this building be-
longs to everybody, espe-
cially those who are op-
pressed, so we have decided
to stay." Neither he nor
Kawasme indicated how
long they intend to conduct
their hunger strike.
