Israelis Smash Lebanese Roadblock

TEL AVIV (JTA) — An
Israeli patrol, commanded
by a full colonel, smashed
through a Lebanese army
roadblock in East Beirut
Wednesday morning. There
was no exchange of fire be-
tween the two forces.
The incident occurred
only hours after the
Lebanese army took control
of the Christian section of
the city which had been
previously policed by the
Christian Phalangist
militia.
An Israel arty spokes-
man said "the Lebanese

army
erected
(the)
roadblock near Monte
Verde, east of Beirut and at-
tempted to prevent an IDF
patrol from passing
through. The patrol burst
through the roadblock and
continued on its way east-
ward in the direction of the
town of Beit Meri.
The
spokesman
stressed that "the IDF
has no intention of dis-
continuing the patrols
which are a routine part
of the ongoing security
activities in the region."
He said the incident oc-

Refusniks Populate Soviet
Farming Collective of Ilyinka

By MICHAEL SABIN

(Copyright 1983, JTA, Inc.)

(Editor's note: Michael
Sabin is a poet and writer
and a co-founder of The
Poetry Kibutz.)
The 130 religious, tradi-
tionally observant Jews of
Ilyinka, a sovkhoz (farming
collective) in the Soviet
Union, constitute a unique
phenomenon — for the
majority of them long des-
perately to go to Israel. '
Yet no one has been
allowed to even apply for an
emigration visa at the local
_emigration office in Vor-
onez for several years. And
the sovkhoz chairman,
Alexei Kuvaldin, has
adamantly refused to issue
character references and
statements that an exit
applicant did not owe the
collective any money. He
has also refused to deliver
the official invitations sent
by Israeli relatives which
are prerequisite to begin-
ning the application to emi-
grate.
And so, the Jews of
Ilyinka, even those who
have not formalized their
applications for exit visas to
be reunited with their close

relatives in Israel— as is
their right, guaranteed by
the Helsinki Accords — are
de facto refusniks.
Although Ilyinka is
1,000 miles from Moscow
in the heart of rural Rus-
sia, the Ilyinka Jews hold
fast to religious tradition
in the face of official cen-
sure. They keep the Sab-
bath and the dietary
laws, observe the chagim,
pray three times a day,
circumcise newborn sons
and bake their own mat-
zot.
In 1976, five Ilyinka
families attempted to pro-
test the Soviet authorities'
refusal to grant them exit
visas by a "work stoppage."
They demanded that they
be allowed to withdraw
from the collective farm and
move to a place where emig-
ration to Israel might be
possible.
Of the five "striking
families," only the family of
Yakov Isaievich Matveev
was inexplicably granted
exit visas in August of 1980.
They now live in Neve
Yakov, in Jerusalem. But
no one else has been allowed
to leave Ilyinka.

NOTICE TO OUR CUSTOMERS:

curred in territory under
IDF control, in an area
where Israeli soldiers kil-
led three terrorists who
attempted to attack an
Israeli roadblock Tues-
day.
A routine patrol under
the command of a colonel is
unusual in any army but it
has apparently become the
practice of the Israel army
in Lebanon. Two weeks ago
an Israeli tank patrol under
the command of a Lt. Col.
was involved in a confronta-
tion with a U.S. marine cap-
tain just south of Beirut, ob-
servers here recalled.
The observers suggested
that Wednesday's incident
and the earlier one were
"probing actions" by Israel
to test the response of loc-
ally deployed forces.
