'Peace for Galilee' Creates Sharp Divisions

By MOSHE RON

The Jewish News Special
Israel Correspondent

TEL AVIV — Operation
Peace for Galilee has al-
ready lasted eight weeks.
There are sharp polemics
about the war. The Peace
Now movement maintains
that the Israeli army should
not invade west Beirut be-
cause it would mean a lot of
casualties. It is against
widening the scope of the
war beyond a security zone
of 40 to 50 kilometers north
of the border of Galilee.
A few weeks ago, the
Peace Now movement or-
ganized a big demonstra-
tion in Tel Aviv. About
100,000 people took part. In
answer to this, the govern-
ment organized a counter-
demonstration which was
attended by about 200,000
persons. Premier Menahem
Begin, Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon and Interior
Minister Yosef Burg were
the main speakers.
Dr. Burg sharply at-
tacked the opposition, stres-

r

sing that their policy con-
cerning Operation Peace for
Galilee encourages Yasir
Arafat. This speech caused
an uproar in the Knesset.
Alignment members loudly
interfered with Dr. Burg
when he spoke in the Knes-
set. They accused Dr. Burg
of calling the opposition
"traitors" and of organizing
the demonstration as is
done by totalitarian gov-
ernments.
The son of Dr. Burg,
Abraham, who fought in
the Lebanon war, was a
member of a three-man
delegation of front-line
soldiers who met Begin
and spoke out against
widening the scope of the
war.
The Israeli press is full of
polemics about the war and
about the question whether
Israel should invade west
Beirut in order to liquidate
the terrorists.
The government coalition
accuses the opposition of
waging disloyal prop-
aganda against the Leba-

non war. They criticized
Labor Party Secretary Gen-
eral Haim Barley's declara-
tion that "exactly as this
government has led us into
Beirut, it could lead us into
Amman."
They also attacked Abba
Eban for his statement that
the "discussion on Opera-
tion Peace for Galilee has
some connection with Judea
and Samaria."
There are leaders of the
opposition who maintain
that as long as the fighting
continues against the
Palestinian terrorists and
against the Syrian army,
there should not be any
criticism or polemics be-
cause this could weaken the
morale of the soldiers.
The military rabbinate
(the Army Chaplains
Branch) is very active on
military bases in Leba-
non. Special "mobile
Torah tents" are visiting
the bases to enable
soldiers to pray or to
study Talmud. They are
working day and night
and are accompanied by
ordained military rabbis.
A mobile yeshiva was also
introduced and many non-
religious soldiers are join-
ing the prayer services.

The Palestinian ter-
rorists had planned terror
acts in several towns in Is-
rael. In one PLO hideout in
Bethlehem a number of
forged entrance tickets to
the Tel Aviv Habima Thea-
ter were found. It is quite
clear that the terrorists
planned to bomb the thea-
ter.
** *
A Protestant minister in
a village in south. Lebanon
told Israeli journalists that
once terrorists came to his
church and demanded that
he preach in favor of the
PLO. He refused. Next day,
some armed terrorists broke
into his house and abused
his 16-year-old daughter in
front of him and cut her
breasts with knives. Many
such outrages have been
committed by the PLO in
his village, he said.

The Israeli army
erected Hebrew road-
signs in Beirut and along
the roads in Lebanon di-
recting drivers how to
travel through southern
Lebanon to Beirut. These
signs are illuminated by
night. There are also He-
brew signs inside towns
and villages pointing to
parking places and to
out-of-bounds areas, etc.

private cars came to the
Rosh Hanikra borderpost
and announced their
willingness to take every
soldier coming back on
leave, in their private cars,
straight to his home, wher-
ever it may be. Since new
immigrants are not enlisted
for army service, they
wanted to participate in
their own way in Operation
Peace for Galilee. They
brought along with them
drinks, candy and sand-
wiches for the soldiers.
* * *
The great humanitarian
aid extended by the Israeli
soldiers to the Lebanese
population is very visible.
Israeli soldiers help the
sick. Children are trans-
ported by helicopter to hos-
pitals in Israel.
One army unit found a
widow with seven small
children. Her husband had
been shot by the terrorists.
The Israeli soldiers pro-
vided the family with food
and medical help.

Collette Joulin from .
Klea village in south
Lebanon gave birth to a
child at the hospital In
Safed. After consulting
with her husband, the
couple decided to call the
baby boy "Menahem Be-
gin" as expression of
their gratitude. "Begin
has freed us from the
yoke of the terrorists" the
happy mother said.
**
The Israeli army has as-
signed a special group of
officers to Lebanon to or-
ganize the administrative
and municipal institutions,
including local police units
and courts with Lebanese
judges. Many of these in-
stitutions were re-activated
for the first time since the
PLO took over in Lebanon.
