Commentary

(Continued from Page 2)
the events that followed did not have the concurr-
ence or assent of anyone from the political or civi-
lian echelon.
• The commission of inquiry decided not to
enter into the question of indirect responsibility
of other elements besides the state of Israel, such
as the Lebanese army, or the Lebanese govern-
ment to whose order this army was subject, since
despite Major-General Drori's urgings in his talks
with the heads of the Lebanese army, thry did not
grant Israel's requests to enter the camps before
the Phalangists or instead of the Phalangists. It
should also be noted that in meetings with U.S.
representatives during the critical days, Israel's
spokesmen repeatedly requested that the U.S. use
its influence to get the Lebanese army to fulfill the
function of maintaining public peace and order in
west Beirut, but it does not seem that these re-
quests had any result.
• The commission established that the at-
rocities in the refugee camps were perpetrated by
members of the Phalangists, and that absolutely
no direct responsibility devolves upon Israel or
upon those who acted in its behalf. It is clear that
the decision on the entry of the Phalangists into
the refugee camps was taken without considera-
tion of the danger — which the makers and
executors of the decision were obligated to
foresee as probable — that the Phalangists would
commit massacres and pogroms against the in-
habitants of the camps, and without an examina-
tion of the means for preventing this danger.
Similarly, it is clear from the course of events
that when the reports began to arrive about the
actions of the Phalangists in the camps, no proper
heed was taken of these reports, the correct con-
clusions were not drawn from them, and no
energetic and immediate actions were taken to
restrain the Phalangists and put a stop to their"
actions. This both reflects and exhausts Israel's
indirect responsibility for what occurred in the
refugee camps.
• The commission concluded that in the wit-
nesses' testimony and in various documents,
stress is laid on the difference between the usual
battle ethics of the IDF and the battle ethics of the
bloody clashes and combat actions among the
various ethnic groups, militias and fighting forces
in Lebanon. The difference is considerable. In the
war the IDF waged in Lebanon, many civilians
were injured and much loss of life was caused,
despite the effort the IDF and its soldiers made
not to harm civilians. On more than one occasion,
this effort caused the IDF troops additional
casualties.
• The main purpose of the inquiry was to
bring to light all the important facts relating to the
perpetration of the atrocities, it therefore has im-
portance from the perspective of Israel's moral
fortitude and its functioning as a democratic state
that scrupulously maintains the fundamental
principles of the civilized world. We do not de-
ceive ourselves that the results of this inquiry will
convince or satisfy those who have prejudices or
selective consciences, but this inquiry was not
intended for such people,
We have striven and have spared no effort to
arrive at the truth, and we hope that all persons of
good will who will examine the issue without
prejudice will be convinced that the inquiry was
conducted without any bias.
• Various reactions from different quarters
would appear to justify the assumptions of the
commission regarding both those who have prej-
udices or selective consciences and persons of
goodwill.
The truth must not be stifled and it is of the utmost
urgency that all the facts be recorded and reiterated. There
must be an avoidance of further distortions.
