Firmness Against PLO Terrorism Asked

(Continued from Page 1)
International Red Cross,
and that the true numbers
of civilian victims are in the
hundreds, not thousands.
In Tyre, the press re-
ported that 1,000 civilians
were killed. The town's
mayor put the number at
63.
"Too many have died,
to be sure, but the press
failed to convey the ex-
nt to which the Israelis
took precautions to limit
casualties — including
warning civilians to
leave. On the contrary,
the TV networks' con-
stant emphasis on Israeli
censorship implied that
Israel was covering up
atrocities.
"The lesson of recent wars
surely is that nations are
well advised, if they can, to
make censorship total. The
pictures Israel has let
through have hurt its case,
as the footage from Vietnam
hurt ours. Britain beat the
Argentines and then re-
_leased the bad news about
how. You can be sure that
the Soviets will never show
what they've done in Af-
ghanistan, and so the world
will not scold them for it.
"The CIA, if it were wise,
would equip Afghan rebels
with videotape cameras as
well as rifles. In the modern
world, TV tape is mightier
than a cannon.
- "The U.S. press also has
overemphasized Israeli op-
position to the Lebanese
war. Polls there indicate
that more than 90 percent of
the country supports the op-
eration. The press has been
focusing on the other 10
percent. It also has almost
entirely failed to report
upon the style of govern-
ment the PLO gave to the
areas it formally occupied in
southern Lebanon.
"By accounts of those
who have been there, it
was thug government in
which PLO gunmen took
what they wanted and
punished those who er-
sisted them. Of late, the
press and TV have been
carrying daily pictuies of
Yasir Al-afat kissing
babies and rallying his
troops. Where are the in-
terviews with Lebanese

civilians held captive in
west Beirut?
"The image of Arafat
being conveyed to the
Ametican public now is that
of a moderate man forced by
his enemies into unsavory
alliances and desperate de-
e&. Menahem. Begin and
Ariel Sharon make con-
venient heavies for the
piece. It can easily be be-
lieved of them (as charged
in some full page ads) that
they are destroying the PLO
in order to supptess the
Palestinian people and hold
onto the West Bank forever.
"Possibly they would like
to do just that, but their
opportunity (indeed, the
Likud Party's assession to
power) arises fundamen-
tally from the consistent re-
fusal of all the Arabs except
Egypt to accept Israel's
existence.
"Israel would not have
the West Bank if it hadn't_
been attacked in 1967, and
it wouldn't have it now if
Jordan had agreed to a ter-
ritorial settlement after-
ward or if Arafat had-
launched a Sadat-style
peace campaign."
Kondracke, whose ar-
ticle, published three
days before the incredul-
ous sensationalizing of
the Arafat statement by
Congressman Paul
McCloskey, sounds like
"a prophecy of things to
come," added in his ad-
monishing statement:
"Now, the Reagan Ad-
ministration seems to be of-
fering the PLO's gunmen
not just an escape with their
lives, put political legiti-
macy. Time after time,
Arafat has been quoted by
visiting journalists and
congressmen as agreeing to
live in peace with Israel
only to disavow the state-
ment the following day.,
"Now, the Administra-
tion is implying that if he
should merely whisper that
he accepts UN Resolution
242, the U.S. will negotiate
directly with him. It's just a
step from there to promot-
ing the PLO as a partner in
West Bank peace talks and
only one more step to ad-
vocating PLO rule.
"Having failed to achieve
his aims by violence Arafat

"In 1980, presidential
candidate Ronald -Re-
agan correctly branded
the PLO as a terrorist
organization. This June,
Henry Kissinger cor-
rectly observed that
bringing the PLO into
peace talks would give a_
veto `to the most intrans-
igent element in the Arab
world.'
"The U.S. ought to be of-

Isaiah 32i5
"The Worthless person shall no more be called Liberal
And the avaricious man shall not be said to be bountiful"
They espouse the cause of tyranny and terrorism
Mocking all that is good and beautiful.

Let's hope the eyes of the world toward Israel
Shall not be blinded again,
And openly and wholeheartedly
Give credence to her achievements now and then.
