Percy Denies Statement on Israel

WASHINGTON — Sen.
Charles Percy (R-I11.),
chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations Commit-
tee, released the following
statement last week:
The allegation that I
said Israel should be
brought to her knees if she
invades west Beirut is ut-
terly false. I never made
such a statement, and other
Senators who attended the
meeting at the White House
with the President agree
that I never made such a
statement nor anything like

it.
Minister Begin by cable

AFL-CIO Backs Israel Invasion

NEW YORK (JTA) — In
its first official statement on
the war in Lebanon, the
American Federation of
Labor-Congress of Indus-
trial Organizations de-
clared its unequivocal sup-
port for the Israeli invasion.
The resolution was
adopted unanimously by
the organization's executive
council at the end of a
three-day summer meeting
in which council members
heard a report by AFL-CIO
officials who returned re-
cently from a visit to Israel
and Lebanon.
"The executive council
considers the Israeli inva-
sion of Lebanon entirely
justified on security
grounds," the statement
said. "The seizure of vast
caches of PLO weapons and
ammunition in southern
Lebanon is proof of a PLO
military buildup which
posed a direct threat to Is-
raeli security.
"To protect its security,
Israel was justified not
only in altering its stated
objective of removing the
immediate threat but in
attacking its source — the
command structure of
the PLO itself."

The statement expressed
deep regret over the loss of
civilian lives in the conflict.
But in response to a ques-
tion at a press conference
held at the council meet-
ing's conclusion, AFL-CIO
president Lane Kirkland
said that "in the absence of
any action by Israel in mov-
ing into Lebanon, there was
wholesale slaughter by the
PLO and Syria in Lebanon
— slaughter that dwarfs
anybody's estimate of civi-
lian casualties since this
event began."
The statement left the
position of the AFL-CIO on
the war in Lebanon unam-
biguous.
"In the conflict be-
tween Israel, on the one
hand, and the PLO and
Syria, on the other, the
AFL-CIO is not neutral,"
it said. "We support Is-
rael. The world should
demand that the PLO and
Syria leave Lebanon now
and allow the Lebanese
to proceed with the task
of reconstruction and the
creation of an indepen-
dent central govern-
ment."

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The new Ambassador of
Costa Rica, Karen Olson,
presented her credentials to
President Yitzhak Navon.
Costa Rica was the first of
13 embassies which left
Jerusalem two years ago
and moved its embassy to
Tel Aviv following the
enactment of the Jerusalem
Law which declared that
united Jerusalem is Israel's
capital.
It was also the first
country which decided to re-
turn its embassy to
Jerusalem.

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Israel has a nuclear option,
but it will not be the first
country to introduce such
weapons in the Middle East
because of its moral views,
Knesset Speaker Menahem
Savidor told a delegation of
North American women_
leaders, participants in a
seminar for women.
Savidor said the "Peace
for Galilee" operation was
launched June 6 because Is-
rael believed it was facing
the danger of an immediate
military initiative by Syria.
The operation prevented
Syria's plans \to attack Is-
rael, he noted. _

Israel Consul
Assumes Post

CHICAGO — The Consu-
late General of Israel an-
nounces that Gabby Levy
has assumed the post of con-
sul for press and informa-
tion for Chicago and the
Midwest.
He succeeds Ehud Gol,
who has been assigned as
consul for information in
the Consulate General of Is-
rael in New York.

Israel's labor force in
1980 was 1,318,000 work-
ers.

Maintaining that then
PLO is not only "dedicated
to the destruction of Israel"
but is also "a terrorist
organization," the resolu-
tion urged the U.S. gov-
ernment "to continue
withholding recognition
from the PLO and to refrain
from any actions which
would encourage the PLO to
believe that it can snatch a
political victory from mili-
tary defeat.
