JERUSALEM — A
Danish army officer who
served for two years with
the UN peacekeeping force
in Lebanon (UNIFIL), told a
Copenhagen newspaper
that the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization is "an in-
sane pack of murderers."
Major Joern Meedom also
said that 2,000 PLO ter-
rorists were in the Sabra
and Shatila refugee camps
in September when Chris-
tian militiamen entered the
camps and killed 300-800
persons.
Meedom said he believed
that the PLO may have used
the civilians as human
shields during the Beirut
massacre.

•JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Premier Menahem Begin
implied Tuesday that he ex-
pects President Reagan's
Middle East peace initiative
to eventually "disappear."
Opening a political de-
bate in the Knesset, Begin
reiterated his total opposi-
tion to the Reagan plan
which, among other things,
called for a freeze on Israel's
settlement activities while
peace negotiations are
under way.
Declaring that "One can-
not freeze the settlements
,just as one cannot freeze life
itself," Begin suggested
that "there are plans which
existed and disappeared,
there are positions which
exist and will disappear.
The only agreement signed
was the Camp David
agreement and this is the
only agreement that should
be negotiated," he said.
He repeated his recent
invitation to King Hus-
sein of Jordan to join the
peace talks, but only
without preconditions.
With respect to the
negotiations over the with-
drawal of Israeli forces from
Lebanon, Begin said Israel
was demanding security ar-
rangements, "not on paper
but in reality." He predicted
that there too an agreement
would be reached that
guaranteed Israel's secu-
rity.
Labor Party chairman
Shimon Peres, speaking for
the opposition, rejected the
"uncompromising" policies
of the government. "One
must seek a compromise.
One must try to talk to King
Hussein," Peres said. But he
added, "under no condition
negotiations with the PLO."
According to Peres, the
problem with the Palestine
Liberation Organization
was not the "biography" of
Yasir Arafat and its other
leaders but the fact that in
order to avoid a split in PLO
ranks, its leaders refrain
from making a clear politi-
cal choice.
Peres called on the
United States to refrain
from exerting any pres-
sure on Israel, warning
that such a move would
be "counter-productive."
Peres said he understood
American impatience with
the slow progress of the
talks with Lebanon, but
said the issue was highly
complex and might have to
be solved on the basis of an
interim government.
Peres said the peace talks
with Lebanon are slow and
complex "because Israel
would rather achieve an

agreement and normalize
its relations with all of
Lebanon rather than sign a
peace treaty with part of
Lebanon," implying that
such a treaty with the
Phalangists would have
posed no major problem.
He also called for security
arrangements for Israel's
northern border and said
this could be achieved by in-
tegrating Maj. Saad Had-
dad into the Lebanese army
and appointing him tolead
security arrangements in
the border strip.
