Syrian Intransigence Forced Israel's Annexation of the Heights

The only workers' move-
ment with any degree of
freedom in the Communist
imperium — "Solidarity" in
Poland — is being crushed
by police state measures.
Even John Paul II has spo-
ken up politically for Po-
land's people, but again "the
civilized world" — an in-
teresting fiction! — does
nothing.
But now "the forum of
world opinion," the UN As-
sembly, has again an issue

upon which it can unite: an-
other condemnation of Is-
rael. Amidst the major dis-
asters on the world map, the
pygmies of world states-
manship are spending
hours and days to determine
the precise form and phrase
to express their moral in-
dignation that Israel has
regularized the status of the
Golan Heights.
Forgotten facts must be
recapitulated, to cut
through the fog of diver-
sionary rhetoric. Fact:
the Israeli goirernment
has ended 14 years of
military government in
the Golan. Fact: after the
War of Independence, the
Heights were closed to
everything but enemy in-
stallations, massive dis-
placements and exten-
sive tunnels in the rocks

In 1973 it was clear that
the Arab League was de-
termined to close the ring
about Israel in prepara-
tion for another attack.
The presence of many
thousands of PLO ter-
rorists in Lebanon, who
had been driven out of
Jordan for attempting to
overthrow King Hussein,
de-stabilized that society.
The PLO again created

"a state within a state" —
disloyal to their host

rorist raids into Israel.
