Philanthropy, Defense Needed


(Continued from Page 16)
neighboring village of
Azivah, and to other places
where they have been relo-
cated in public buildings
until a permanent ar-
rangement is found.
"The residents of
Rashadiyeh left the area
following warnings from
the IDF prior to its cap-
ture. To the best of our
inowledge there were no
-'civilian casualties either
in Rashadiyeh or any-
. where else in southern
Lebanon, apart from the
three cities of Tyre, Sidon
and Nabatiyeh, or if there
were, the number is min-
"All the residents of
southern Lebanon who fled
the hostilities and took
shelter in orchards have
now found temporary living

"It is worth mentioning
that 120,000 Lebanese ref-
ugees who had fled to Beirut
in the years 1975-1976 be-
cause of the PLO, have now
returned to their former
places of residence and are
trying to repair and build
their homes, which were de-
stroyed or damaged during
these years.
"According to estimates,
the PLO suffered 1,000-
2,000 killed in the fighting
in Lebanon. This is only an
estimate. The above statis-
tics do not include that part
of southwest Beirut held by
the PLO.
"It is generally ac-
cepted that the number of
wounded in any war will
be approximately three
times the number of
dead. It should be noted
that the PLO and its sup-
porters have ceased
spreading rumors about
the number of wounded.
The reason is simple. The
number of wounded can
be checked in hospitals in
southern Lebanon and
"The number of civilian
wounded who remain in
hospitals in southern Leba-
non and Israel is approx-
imately 700."
On the home front, edito-
rials like that in the Detroit
News, July 5, aroused in-
dignation. The Detroit
News is charged with bas-
ing its attacks on Israel and
accusations of mass mur-
ders of civilians on the ear-
liest advertisements in-
serted in daily newspapers
filled with figures which are
constantly repudiated as
Then there are the adver-
''- -\ isements

by Jews, includ-
ing some of prominence,
like Marie Syrkin, Elie Abel
and others, who are now
demanding that Israel
withdraw from Lebanon
immediately. These Jewish
liberals are asked whether
the anti-PLO campaign
should be abandoned,
should be permitted to re-
turn to Israel's borders,
should be encouraged to
renew the massacres which
compelled Israel's military
actions into Lebanon.
Meanwhile, there is a
growing movement on
the part of Lebanese

Christians to assert
themselves, assailing the
Syrian and PLO intru-
sions into Lebanon which
contributed to that na-
tion's tragedies since
The critical advertise-
ments, especially those by
Jews, notably New Jewish
Agenda, advocate Is-
rael's withdrawal from
Lebanon and for a speedy
solution of the Palestinian
problem, some advocating
establishment of a new
Pelestinian state.
Much attention has been
given in some quarters to
the very critical articles by
Nat Hentoff in Village
Voice. One of his articles
was reproduced in the Free
Press on Sunday, and it was
refuted in an extensive
analysis of events and con-
ditions in a parallel essay by
Dr. Leon H. Warshay, pro-
fessor of sociology at Wayne
State Unviersity.

Extensive coverage of the
Lebanese situation in the
New York Times includes
daily reports by David Ship-
ler. In one of them from
Nabatiyeh, Lebanon, Ship-
ler reported:
"The Israeli troops have
generally received good
marks from the Lebanese
for behavior. They seem to
have obeyed their strict or-
ders not to loot, and some
Lebanese say that the only
looting problems have oc-
curred where no Israelis
were around to stop local
" 'Until now, there have
been no problems from the
Israeli Army,' said the
mayor of Tyre, Ali Khalid
Sha'alan. 'Nobody has sto-
len anything. Nobody has
attacked anybody. No
soldier has tried to sneak
anything with a girl.' "
The Lebanese situation
provides an interesting
study in propaganda
techniques. Anti-Israel
advertisements are rep-
licas of prejudicial
statements with which
Israel's enemies have
bombarded her for many
At the same time, it is
evident that the anti-Israel
forces are "copying history."
For example:
Qaddafi now proposes
that the PLO defenders,
rather than surrender in
shame, should commit
suicide, therby putting Is-
raelis to shame and on the
defensive. This is an evident
effort to copy Masada.
Much is said and pub-
lished about the need for re-
lief of sufferers from the
Lebanese crisis. Even Mobil
Oil, in a paid advertise-
ment, undertook the
sanctimony of listing organ-
izations seeking funds for
that purpose. Not a word
about the massive Israeli ef-
fort to provide food, medi-
caments and medical aid to
the needy! But the Jewish
effort in a sense supersedes
them all, and an American
Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee task in that field


of endeavor is described in
this most recent report:

JDC Describes

"Delivered on July 1 to
senior social welfare offi-
cers of Lebanese Ministry of
Social Welfare in Tyre and
Sidon 1,500 foam rubber
mattresses, 300 boxes of
cooking and eating utensils
and 500 blankets (latter do-
nated by Terre Des Hom-
mes). Delivery effected

cooperation of both

"Actual distribution of
these goods by Lebanese
authorities will commence

family-by-family survey of
needs in both Tyre and Si-
don. Our second shipment of
1,500 mattresses, 200 cook-
ing sets and blankets will be

ers are working responsibly
despite the difficulty of
communications from the
central government. Beirut
