Arab Propaganda Effort Reported Flourishing in France

LONDON (JTA) — A
comprehensive study which
finds that a concerted Arab
propaganda effort in France
has been backed by both
leftwing and rightwing
elements and which warns
that "Arab propagandists
will intensify their
methods," has been released
by the.

gress. . •
The commissioned study,
issued by the WJC research
and publications unit, the
Institute of Jewish Affairs,
shows that France's Middle
ast policies and its posit-
n within the European
community were key factors
in its emergence as "ideal
territory for the propaganda
of the Arab states involved
in the Middle East conflict."
Among official Arab
bodies, the PLO office in
Paris is cited as the most
important source of anti-
Israel opinion.
The PLO office, the re-
port notes, has concen-
trated on building up its

press contacts to the
point that "whenever
events in the Middle East
attract the attention of
journalists, the PLO
office is one of the places
to which they go, for in-
formation and news."
Apart from the specifi-
cally Arab organizations,
run by Arabs, the Associa-
tions of French Arab Sol-
idarity spread the Arab
cause through French sym-
pathizers. They publish
numerous magazines, pro-
vide material aid for the
Palestinians, and organize
demonstrations with the
aim of becoming centers of
media attention.
The study shows that

Arab propaganda groups

UNITED NATIONS
(JTA) — Concluding four
days of debate at an emer-
gency session on the Pales
tinian question, the Gen-
eral Assembly voted 120-2
to endorse the establish-
ment of a Palestinian state
"in Paelstine" and to con-
demn Israel for failing to
comply with previous • UN
resolutions that it withdraw
from Lebanon and disman-
tle the Jewish settlements
on the West Bank.
The United States and Is-
rael voted against the reso-
lution. Twenty countries,
mostly Western democ-
racies, abstained.
The resolution called for
"the free exercise in Pales-
tine of the inalienable
rights of the Palestinian
people to self-determination
without external interfer-
ence and to national inde-
pendence."
The resolution also
called indirectly for sanc-
tions against Israel by
urging the Security
Council to take "practi-
cal" measures against Is-
rael if it failed to with-
draw from occupied ter-
ritories and from Leba-
non.
The assembly t. lso de-
cided, in another resolution,
to convene an international
conference in Paris next
August on the Palestinian
question: The vote on this
resolution was 123 in favor,
with the United States and
Israel again casting the
only negative votes. Eigh-
teen countries abstained.

Noting that the Paris con-
ference would cost the UN
$5.7 million, Yehuda Blum,
Israel's Ambassador to the
UN, said it was a scandal-
ous waste of money that
could be used to feed hungry
mouths instead of "playing
up to the vanities of the PLO
henchmen."
The assembly also voted
to observe June 4 as "Inno-
cent Children Victims" day.
The vote was 102-2, with
the U.S. and Israel opposed,
and 34 abstentions. The
June 4 date is to mark the
day Israel prepared to enter
Lebanon. The actual incur-
sion was June 6.
Initially, the Arabs
wanted to place a plaque at
the UN that would have
been dedicated to the "inno-
cent Palestinian and
Lebanese children, victims
of Israeli aggression." The
plan was dropped at the urg-
ing of UN officials who
argued that this would be
regarded as an affront by
Americans in general and
New Yorkers in particular.

and as a leftwing move-
ment, it will try to bring
the Socialist Party round
to a--less favorable posi-
tion towards Israel."
A limiting factor how-
ever, stems from the
presidency of Francois Mit-
terrand, "whose policy is
much more Israel oriented
than that of his predeces-
sors," the report said.

have strong extreme right-
wing political links. The
Committee for Peace in the
Middle East, for example,
"which is widely believed to
be financed by Iraq" is
headed by two individuals
associated with the extreme
right, including one, Gilles
Munier, who was "an active
neo-Nazi."
On the left, two important
anti-Israel- political forces
are "Temoignage Chretien"
(Christian Witness) and the
French Communist Party.
The study says the fu-
ture aims of Temoignage
Chretien are two-fold:
