Blum Says srael Wants Out of Lebanon

(JTA) — Yehuda Blum, Is-
rael's Ambassador to the
United Nations, declared
last week that Israel does
not want "to stay in Leba-
non or in any part thereof."
But, he said, "we are
entitled to demand that
proper arrangements be
made so that Lebanon
should not serve again as a
staging ground for terrorist
attacks against Israel's civi-
lian population."
Blum, who made this
statement during the course
of the-Mideast debate in the
General Assembly, reaf-
firmed Israel's stated posi-
tion that its forces will not
pull out from Lebanon until
concrete arrangements are

East is more eager than Is-
rael to see Lebanese sover- •
eignty restored, its inter-
nal strife resolved, the Sy-
rian occupiers removed, the
PLO subdued and freedom
and tranquility returned to
that war torn land," Blum
Charging that the Gen-
eral Assembly, by its "re-
petitious and distorted
presentation of the
Arab-Israeli conflict" has
no intention of coining to
grips with the reality in
the Mideast, Blum


made that would stop hos-
tile actions from Lebanon
against Israel.

Weizman Starts New Party
for Next Knesset Elections?

Former Defense Minister
Ezer Weizman, who quit
Premier Menahem Begin's
government in 1980, repor-
tedly intends to establish a
new centrist political party
to participate in the next
Knesset elections.
Weizman, who has kept
himself out of the political
scene in Israel for the past
two years, had no-comment
on the report: But Dror
Seigerman, a Knesset
member of the Liberal
Party wing of Likud, said
the founding convention of
the new party would be held
next month.
Seigerman and former
Energy Minister Yitzhak
Berman, also of the Liberal
Party, have been mentioned
frequently in connection
with rumors of a new party
headed by Weizman.
According to the latest
report, Weizman dis-
closed his political plans
to President Luis Alberto
Monge of Costa Rica
while on a recent busi-
ness trip to that country.
That information was
disclosed by David
Turgeman, Israel's am-
bassador to Costa Rica,
who, at Weizman's insis-
tence, was present at the
meeting initiated by
Turgeman said Weizman


told the Costa Rican
president that if general
elections are held next year
he would form a new party.
He said he could not accept
the political and social con-
cepts of Labor Party leader
Shimon Peres and that
Peres has made and is still
making serious mistakes
which play into Begin's
Weizman, who as defense
minister played a major role
in the Camp David meet-
ings of September 1978 and
in the subsequent negotia-
tion of the Israeli-Egyptian
peace treaty, left Begin's
Cabinet because of serious
policy differences with the

"Bitter and complex as it
is, the Arab-Israel conflict is
but one focus of Mideast
tensions and violence
among many, and as such, is
far from being the most cru-
cial," Blum said.
The Assembly concluded
its Mideast debate, but will
not vote on draft resolutions
on the Mideast until later.

PARIS (JTA) — France
and the United States
agreed Tuesday-to maintain
their forces in. Lebanon as
long as the country's inter-
nal situation warrants it
and to strive to obtain the
evacuation of -Israeli, Sy-
rian and PLO forces.
President Francois Mit-
terrand and U.S. Secretary
of State George Shultz, who
met for close to three hours
in Paris, were reported to
have been in near agree-
ment on most of the Concrete
issues dealing with_ the
Middle East.
The Lebanese situation
was analyzed at length by
Shultz and Defense Minis-
ter Charles Hernu. The two
agreed to cooperate closely
in the multinational force
now stationed in Beirut,
which also includes Italian
contingents, and to "seri-
ously consider" any call by
the Lebanese government
for strengthening the MNF.

Hernu later told the press
that Shultz had warned,
however, against involving
the MNFin any operations
against any foreign troops.
He said the task of the MNF
must be to support the gov-
ernment of President Amin
Gemayel "to restore Leba-
non's sovereignty and
enforce the government's
