Arens Believes Israeli Invasion
May Spark Autonomy Talks

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Moshe Arens, Israel's Am-
bassador to the United
States, said last week that
Israel's military operation
in Lebanon may provide a
basis for movement on
Palestinian autonomy on
the West Bank and Gaza
Strip.
"I think there is reason to
hope that we may be able to
move more expeditiously
than we thought we could
,before in the negotiations
Dr autonomy for Palesti-
Liar' Arabs living in
Judaea, Samaria and the
Gaza area," Arens said in a
speech to the National Press
Club.
According to Arens, the
participation of local Pales-
tinians in autonomy was
severly inhibited by the
Palestine Liberation
Organization which, he
said, murdered moderates
willing to cooperate with Is-
rael.
"We hope this impedi-
ment in the foundation of
the peace making has
now been removed,"
Arens stated, referring to
the military setback of
the PLO in south Leba-
non. He said that the Is-
raelis "may have taken a
step forward towards
that comprehensive
peace in the Middle East
that we are working for
and hoping for."
He predicted that the day
may not "be far oft" when
Lebanon, like Egypt, will

JERUSALEM (JNI) —

ments. Israelis weren't.

flourished with Israel until
Arab pressure induced a
boycott in 1948. Still, fol-
lowing a 1948 armistice,
Lebanon did not participate
in the wars of 1956, 1967 or
1973. Meanwhile, Israel has
tacitly assisted Lebanese
Christians in their struggle
against the PLO.

sign an independent peace
treaty with Israel, "and
then almost inevitably the
other Arab states will have
to follow suit."
In his address, Arens said
that before the Israeli ac-
tion, Lebanon, had been
"engulfed in violence, with
over 60 percent of its land
occupied by the PLO and
Syrian forces." He said Is-
rael has found a situation
over the years where the
settlements on the northern
border became "hostages" to
the PLO artillery and roc-
ket fire launched from
southern Lebanon.
Today, Arens claimed,
the PLO presence in south-
ern Lebanon has been "ef-
fectively eliminated .. .
they are not there any-
more." He pointed out that
for the first time in eight

years, since the 1975-1976
civil war, Lebanese
President Elias Sarkis has
succeeded in putting to-
gether a cabinet, in the form
of a Committee for National
Salvation which includes
representatives of all major
ethnic and religious groups
in Lebanon.
Arens said the Israeli
army found in southern
Lebanon a quantity of
PLO weapons and
ammunition that was 10
times as large as Israeli
intelligence estimated
prior to the operation.
"Furthermore, docu-
ments found in Palestine
terrorist emplacements
proved beyond a doubt a
close "almost organic
inter-connection" between
the PLO and the Soviet
Union, he said.

Acquittal Won in Case
of Stolen Sifrei Torah

NEW YORK (JTA) — A
Russian-born owner of a
skullcap store on Manhat-
tan's Lower East Side,
David Levy, 49, won acquit-
tal in Manhattan State
Supreme Court on charges
of possession of stolen To-
rahs.
His arrest on June 10,
1981, marked the first time
that stolen Torah scrolls
had been recovered by New
York City police since for-
mation of the police de-
partment's Bias Incident
Investigation unit, accord-
ing to Levy's attorney,
Ralph Matalon.
Three stolen Torah scrolls
were found in his shop and
he was indicted in July 1981
on a count of possession of
stolen Torah scrolls in the
first degree and a second
count of an attempt to
posess stolen property in the
first degree.
Levy pleaded not guilty
and told police that he
was rescuing the Torah
scrolls in accordance
with Jewish religious
law. Matalon said that
Levy handed the three

Torah scrolls over to an
assistant district attor-
ney.
Matalon said Levy gave
some money to a youth who
brought him some Torah
scroll bells and said that he
did so in the hope of per-
suading the youth both to
bring in any Torah scrolls
he had and to get friends to
bring to Levy stolen Torah
scrolls they had.
According to psychiatric
evidence presented at his
jury trial before State Sup-
reme Court Justice Richard
Wallach, Levy had set out to
repossess the stolen Torah
scrolls himself, instead of
reporting the thief's offer-
ings to the police because he
suffered from paranoia and
did not trust the police.
Levy testified his plan
was to regain as many of the
Torah scrolls as he could
and then try to return them
directly to their rightful
owners.
Matalon said there were
no pending charges against
Levy and that he had never
been convicted of any crime.

Damascus Denies Access
to Nazi Hunter Klarsfeld

PARIS (JTA) — Nazi
hunter Serge Klarsfeld was
rutned back at Damascus
Airport last week and sent
back to France.
Klarsfeld had come to
Syria to demand the extrad-
ition of one of Adolf
Eichmann's former aides.
Klarsfeld said upon his re-
turn that he had brought
with him to Damascus offi-
cial documents showing
that former SS
Hauptsturmfuher Alois
Brunner was living in Syria
under the name of George
Fischer.
West Germany, Austria,
France, Greece and Israel,
have all issued interna-
tional arrest warrants
against the former deputy
chief of the SS Jewish De-
partment. In France, mili-
tary court sentenced him to
death in absentia in 1954.
The 70-year old Brunner
served as one of Eichmann's
deputies first in Vienna,
then in Berlin and Salonika
and finally in Paris. After-
the war he was on the Allies
list of most wanted Nazi war

in 1948.
Most of them stressed
that it had taken much
coul-searching both to
organize and to attend
the demonstration while
soldiers were still on the
frontlines. But they
stressed that any na-
tional consensus which
had existed in favor of the
original limited aims, of
clearing a 40-kilometer
belt of terrorist artillery,
had disappeared with the
extension of the fighting
to the suburbs of Beirut.
The speakers concen-
trated their main attacks
against Premier Menahem
Begin and Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon. They were ac-
cused of waging a "political
war, rather than a war of
defense which the entire
country could support."

Anti-War Protesters Stage
Weekend Rally in Tel Aviv

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
Thousands of people packed
Kikar Malhei Israel Square
in front of City Hall here
last weekend to protest the
continuing fighting in
Lebanon.
The organizers, a loose
group of people not affil-
iated with any regular polit-
ical party, put the
attendance at "well over
20,000." The police esti-
mated the crowd at "about
10,000."
It was the first Israeli
demonstration against a
war held while the war was
in progress. Speakers, many
of them university profes-
sors, writers and intellectu-
als, noted that the demon-
stration was taking place
during what had become Is-
rael's longest war, apart
from the War of Liberation
