JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Premier Menahem Begin
charged Wednesday that
the recent upsurge of ter-
rorist acts in the Gaza
region was related to the ac-
tivities of the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization's
office in El Arish in north-
ern Sinai.
He said Israel took a very
serious view of this de-
velopment and has lodged a
formal protest with the
Israeli-Egyptian joint mili-
tary committee. El Arish
was the first Sinai territory

returned to Egypt under
terms of the peace treaty.
The issue was raised in
the Knesset's foreign affairs
and security committee by
Yosef Rom of Likud,
Yehuda Ben-Meir of the
National Religious Party
and Binyamin Halevy of the
Democratic movement.
They contended that
Egypt was violating the
peace treaty by allowing
the PLO to establish itself
in El Arish and operate in
the Gaza strip.
The committee also dis-

cussed the situation in and wounding 11 others as
south Lebanon. Amnon Lin well as nine civilians and
of Likud complained that several Lebanese army reg-
the government was attack- ulars.
Begin agreed that Israel
ing Maj. Saad Haddad,.
commander of the Christian had "a sublime moral duty
to defend the Christians in
militia.
He was apparently re- Lebanon." He maintained,
ferring to an appeal by however, that Israel's influ-
Begin to Haddad for re- ence on Haddad was
straint after the Christian limited.
Begin said he had no
forces shelled Kantara vil-
lage in south Lebanon last knowledge of reports
week, killing two soldiers of that Egypt intended to
the Nigerian contingent of . publish a "white paper"
the United Nations Interim on the autonomy talks to
Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) date. He denied a repot
that the Egyptians pro-
posed a one-year trial set-
tlement in the occupied
territories that would
grant wide powers to the
National Guidance
Committee, the main
political body of the
Palestinians on the West
Bank which Israel con-
tends is a front for the
PLO.
Begin sent a letter of con-
gratulations to President
Anwar Sadat Wednesday on
the second anniversary of
the signing of the peace
treaty with Egypt.

NEW YORK (JTA) .-
Ceremonies here and in Is-
rael last week marked the
issuance by the Israel gov-
ernment of a commemora-
tive stamp honoring Rabbi
Abba Hillel Silver, the
American Zionist leader
who was the president of the
Zionist Organization of
America from 1945-1947,
headed the United Jewish

role in getting the United
Nations to adopt the Parti-
tion Plan in 1947 which led
to the establishment of t'
state of Israel.
In ceremonies held in
New York at the Jacob and
Libby Goodman ZOA

who died in 1963, "per-
sonified the decisive politi-
cal contribution of Ameri-
can Jewry to the state of Is-
rael's struggle for indepen-
dence."
The official ceremony
in Israel took place at
Kfar Silver, near Ashke-
lon, named after Silver
and sponsored by the
ZOA.
Un Sunday, Rabbi
Silver's son, Rabbi Daniel
Silver, will preside at a spe-
cial ceremony at Cong.

suance of the stamp.
