Reagan's Middle East peace
proposals which he
enunciated Sept. 1 but said
the PLO should be associ-

Mideast peaqe negotiations.
The EEC had defined the
PLO's role in similar fash-
ion in a resolution it
adopted in Venice. in June
1980.
While the EEC ministers
were meeting, officials in
Rome and Paris said troops
have been placed_ on the
alert and are ready to re-
turn to Beirut at a few hours
notice. A contingent of
French paratroopers left
Tuesday for Lebanon.
President Francois Mitter-
rand said in a television ad-
dress that the French units
would be ready to take up
positions in Beirut within
three days.
France and Italy had
been part, along with the
U.S., of the multinational
force which supervised
the evacuation of the
PLO from Lebanon's cap-
ital last month. The force
withdrew last week. Sev-

eral days afterwards,
Christian gunmen
entered two Palestinian
refugee camps near Be-
irut and massacred sev-
eral hundred men,
women and children. Ita-
lian and American troops
were also ordered back
to Lebanon by their gov-
ernments.
French and Italian
spokesmen deplored that
the multinational force was
so rapidly withdrawn, and
indirectly blamed Washing-
ton for the decision.
British Prime Minister
Margaret Thatcher was
quoted as having said in
Tokyo, where she is on an
official visit, that the kil-
lings of the Palestinians in
the refugee camps "are un-
believable barbarism." In
Paris, Mitterrand issued a
statement expressing his
"horror" and calling for
speedy international action
to prevent a reoccurance.
The Italian government
rapped the massacre and
also indirectly charged Is-
rael with responsibility in
the killings. The Spanish
government also violently
condemned the killings and
mentioned Israeli responsi-
bility while Greek Premier
Andre Papandreou termed
the massacre "an anti-
Palestinian genocide."
In Moscow, the Soviet
government for the first
time ever called for Is-
rael's expulsion from the
United Nations. Tass, the
official news agency, car-
ried a dispatch saying the
Soviet government will
propose that the matter
be taken up by an ex-
traordinary session of
the General Assembly.
The Tass dispatch said
"there is no place for
countries like Israel,
which totally disregard
international law and
commitments, within the
United Nations."
Several hundred Italian
students demonstrated in
Rome to protest "Israel's
complicity" in the murders
and some 5,000 demon-
strators dragged Israel's
flag through the dust in Mi-
lan.
The Federation of Jewish
Students protested against
the demonstrations but
called for the resignation of
Israeli Premier Menahem
Begin, Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon and Chief of
Staff Gen. Rafael Eitan. The
students union said "Israel
was not to blame" but said
the three carried some re-
sponsibility for what had
happened.
In - Athens, several
thousand people marched

on the building where Is-
rael's interests are repre-
sented to protest the mas-
sacre. The march, organized
by the General Confedera-
tion of Workers, began near
the American Embassy
where the protesters lis-
tened to speakers denounce
U.S. and Israeli policies in
Lebanon and the Mideast.
A strong police force
guarded the building of
the Israeli representation
in Psyhike, a few miles
north of Athens.
In Paris, French writer
Roger Ikor, a Goncourt
Prize recipient, also called
for Begin's resignation. In
an article in the French
Socialist daily, Le Matin, he
said, "Begin has to go and go
at once." Ikor, a long-
standing supporter of Is-
rael, called on President
Yitzhak Navon and the
Knesset to "ask the victims'
pardon."
Several Jewish intellec-
tuals led by philosopher
Vladimir Jankelwitz
demonstrated in front of the
Israel Embassy and left an
appeal to Begin asking him
to have Israeli troops
evacuate Lebanon at the
earliest.
Most French Jewish
communal organizations
and personalities have con-
demned the massacre but

Flavius Josephus was
the first Jewish historian.
His "Antiquities" and "The
Jewish War" were histories
of the Jewish people from
ancient times to the de-
struction of the Second
Temple. The history of
Masada is based on his
work.

Israeli responsibility in the
crime.
Most radio, television and
press commentators in West
Europe blame Israel for, at
least, indirect, responsibil-
ity in the massacre. Televi-
sion stations throughout
Western Europe showed at
length pictures of bloated
bodies, dead children and
wanton destruction, which
they said had taken place in
the two camps while sur-
rounded by Israeli forces.
