THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Detroit Protestors Invade Senators Offices to Blame Israel, U.S.

Echoes of charges, ac-
cusations and condemna-
tion of Israel were heard
here, in the McNamara
Federal Building, from a
group calling itself the
Palestinians.
They invaded the offices

remained with the group
during the entire "vigil."
Ruth Broder and a staff in
Levin's office similarly
"hosted" the demonstrators.

In Levin's office, be-
cause of the confidential-
ity of manuscripts in the
senatorial suite, the
group was limited to the
conference room. They
smoked and ate apples,
and only a request that
smoking be limited was
the only restrictive
treatment accorded the
visitors. There were sev-
eral Jews among the pro-
testors.

The condemnation was
not limited to Israel. The
United States shared a role
as a target, and Israel was
blamed for the Beirut mas-
sacre. •
As in all other demon-
strations of this character,
Israel was called the
brutalizing force, and not a
word was uttered about the
admitted fact that in Beirut
it was a tragedy of Chris-
tians murdering Muslims.
The action in the name of
the Palestinians was part of
a series of demonstrations
against Israel and the U.S.
in Dearborn and downtown
Detroit. Senators Riegle

and Levin were in Washing-
ton and the demonstrators
said they were protesting
"the shocking similarity be-
tween the Senators' un-
willingness to honestly re-
spond to their concerns and
President Reagan's un-
willingness to take appro-
priate punitive actions
when faced with repeated
Israeli violations of the
Habib agreement which
had been guaranteed by the
U.S. government.
"The U.S cannot continue
to sit idle while genocide is
being committed against
the Palestinians and
Lebanese people in Leba-
non. Just as you, Mr.
President, hold the Israeli
government responsible, so
do we. In addition, we hold
you responsible, Mr. Re-
agan, as you guaranteed the
safety and security of the
civilian population in 'west
Beirut."
Their demands were:

• Stop all U.S. aid to Is-
rael.
• Immediate and uncon-
ditional withdrawal of all
Israeli troops from Leba-
non.

• Redirect all U.S.
budgetary allocations for
Israel to jobs and human
services.
• Convene immediate
hearings in Congress to in-
vestigate the failure of the
U.S. government to fully
implement the guarantees
of the Habib agreement.

Levin sent word to the
protesters that he would
meet with a committee
from their ranks either in
Detroit or in Washington
and he issued this state-
ment in response to their
demands:

"All Americans are hop-
ing that the perpetrators of
the despicable massacre at
Shatila and Sabara camps
in Beirut will be brought to
justice. While it does not
appear that Israeli soldiers
participated in the slaugh-
ter, if they were aware of the
nature of the murderous
acts intended, and permit-
ted them to take place or if
they did not act promptly to
stop those acts once their
character became known,
then those soldiers must be
held accountable for their
actions or inaction also.
"A complete, open and in-
dependent investigation of
the events of last week
needs to be initiated by the
Israeli government. I
understand that the
