U.S. Trying to Defuse Lebanese Crisis

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Former Undersecretary of
State Philip Habib left
Wednesday for Lebanon as
President Reagan's special
representative on a mission
aimed at defusing the cur-
rent crisis in that war-torn
country. Before departing,
Habib, who was called out of
retirement by Reagan for
the mission met with Sec-

retary of State Alexander
Haig who returned at about
midnight Tuesday from a
NATO meeting in Rome.
Haig called the Lebanese
crisis "a delicate, dangerous
situation."
State
Department
spokesman Dean Fischer
said `Habib's mission "un-
derscores the importance
and urgency that the Ad-
ministration attaches to de-
fusing the tension in the
region." Habib, who is of
Lebanese descent, fre-
quently dealt with the Mid-
dle East before his retire-
ment from the State De-
partment in 1978.
Habib is tentatively
scheduled to go to Syria and
Israel in that ,order after
Lebanon. But Fischer
cautioned that the purpose
of the mission will require
"maximum flexibility" and
that there is no set schedule.
Fischer said that Habib
will be in the three coun-
tries to listen to the views of
their leaders and will not, at
this time, be offering any
ideas of his own or of the

Reagan Administration.
The spokesman declined to
say whether it is the U.S.
goal to have Syria remove
the SAM-6 anti-aircraft
missiles it has deployed in
central Lebanon. Fischer
said he knew of no deadline
by Israel for the missiles to
be removed before the Is-
raelis take military action
against them.
The Israeli ambassador in
Washington, Ephraim Ev-
ron, delivered a letter to Re-
agan from Premier
Menahem Begin on Tues-
day agreeing to the Habib
mission. The letter repor-
tedly warned, however, that
Israel could not wait forever
for the missiles to be re-
moved. Begin told reporters
in Jerusalem he doubted
that Syria would peacefully
remove the missiles.
Israel took into consider-
ation the fact that shooting
down Syrian helicopters
last week might result in
the forward movement of
Syrian missiles into Leba-
non, Begin said.
He added that if diploma-
tic efforts by the U.S. and
others fail to remove the
missiles from Lebanon, Is-
rael will not be able to
tolerate their presence
there, as Israeli aerieal re-
connaissance over Lebanon
is essential for Israel's secu-
rity, and other measures
will ahve to' be taken to re-
move them.
Begin said Israel did not
want a confrontation with
Syria, and Syria had no rea-
son for war with Israel, in-
dicating that he did not
`think a major war would re-
sult from confrontation.
He said the American dip-
lomatic effort was "abso-
lutely global, from Russia to
Abu Dhabai." He said there
was complete understand-
ing between Israel and the
U.S. on the need to restore
the status quo in Lebanon
and America was making
no quid-pro-quo demands on
Israel.
He said the shooting
down of the helicopters had
saved the Lebanese Chris-
tians from collapse.
Syrian President Hassan
Assad this week accused Is-
rael of being-the fomenter of
trouble in Lebanon and

East. At the same time, the
Arab League announced its
full support of Syria in any
confrontation with Israel.
In Cairo, President
Anwar Sadat criticized Is-
rael's actions in Lebanon
but spoke far more harshly
against the Syrians who he
accused of "hooliganism" in
Lebanon. Referring to
Assad as a "bully," Sadat
declared, "Today he is not
placing Lebanon alone but
Lebanon and the Arab
world and the whole Middle
East in a cyclone and no-
body_ knows how this will
end up."
Observing that "Israel
got involved four or five
days ago," Sadat asked:
"Who opened the gates? The
deeds of the Syrians and the
negative attitude of the
Arab world and the leaders
of Lebanon. We all as Arabs
are responsible for that.
This opened the gates for
the Israelis."

(Editor's note: This poem was written by a 14-
year-old girl from Kibutz Ramat Hashofet at the con-
clusion of the Six-Day War in 1967. Its title is "Daddy
and Thousands Like Him Coming Home Tired and
Dusty, With a Heavy Beard and a Dark Tan.")
Sad, joyous, and happy. Again they remove the sweaty togs
caked with dust and perspiration.
Daddy has come home! Tomorrow he will be back at work
and everything will again be as it used to be. Yet among us,
there are an orphaned child and a weeping mother. He has
not come home
and he never, never will!
He paid with his blood for his comrades' victory. And it's
suddenly clear
to each of us that nothing will be the same.
The scars of war have been carved forever in our lives.",
The trees bathing in the blood-red dusk sway in silence,
they have
bowed their moving crowns and raised their eyes in prayer to
God.
There will be sunsets yet, and the wind will be blowing
through the branches
many a time. But for a long while to come
the white lime will still be gleaming along the walks, and for
a long while it will be our privilege to listen to tales about the
brave, about the finest of our boys, about the fathers and
,brothers who fell and
whose memory is marked so deeply within us.
Maybe the day will come when we shall no longer need to
fight for the
right
to exist and for the defense of our country.
Maybe . . .

Terrorists Hold
Irish Soldier

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Is-
rael Radio reported that a
kidnapped Irish soldier of
the United Nations Interim
Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL)
is presently in the hands of
the Arab Liberation Front,
an offshoot of the Palestine
Liberation Organization
supported by the ruling
Baath Party of Iraq.
Pvt. Kevin Joyce, 20, was
seized last week in a ter-
rorist ambush in south
Lebanon during which his
companion, Pvt. Hugh Doh-
erty, 20, was fatally shot.
Doherty was the 11th
Irish soldier to die on duty
and the 62nd fatality suf-
fered by UNIFIL since it
was established in 1978.

Eban Criticizes
EEC Initiative

AMSTERDAM (JTA) —
Israel's former Foreign
Minister Abba Eban said
here that the European
Economic Community's
(EEC) Middle East peace in-
itiative has already failed
and that the EEC should
abandon it and cooperate
instead with the U.S., Israel
and Egypt to pursue - the
success achieved so far by
the Camp David accords.
Addressing a meeting of
the Socialist International
last weekend, Eban said the
EEC had made a "grave
mistake" by not consulting
Israel on its approach and
by its de facto recognition
of the Palestine Liberation
Organization. The EEC has
shown insufficient appre-
ciation of the Camp David
achievements, he said.
