Israel's Credit
Called Good

LONDON (ZINS) --1- Dr.
Joseph Mandelbaum, head
of the Israel State Bank, has
refuted a Euromoney article
which ranked Israel 92nd
out of 114 countries in terms
of financial health.
Dr. Mandelbaum said
that while Israel's foreign
debt is high ($19 billion),
most are long-term obliga-
tions. In addition, he said,
Israel's credit rating with
the international banking
community is extremely
good.

Israel Explored Phalangist
Ties Before State Formed

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A.
study by a Hebrew Univer-
sity graduate student has
produced documents related
to attempts by Jewish lead-
ers in Palestine to establish
friendly ties with the Chris-
tian Phalangist party in
Lebanon before and after
the state of Israel was
founded.
The student, Yaron Dan,
found a report by Alexander
Lutzki of the Jewish Agen-
cy's Arabic department who
visited Beirut in the sum-
mer of 1947 to establish con-
tacts with various per-
sonalities. These included
Pierre Gemayel, founder
and leader of the Phalangist
party who is the father of
President Amin Gemayel of
Lebanon and of the late
Bashir Gemayel, assassi-
nated last September
shortly before he was to
take office as president.
Lutzki's report to David
Ben-Gurion, chairman of
the Jewish Agency, recom-
mended that the Phalan-
gists should be taken into
consideration as a possible
ally. Ben-Gurion dismissed
Gemayel as a man of "very
littlb political wisdom."
Lutzki noted that the
Phalangist leader left the
door open for further

Mossad Warning
on Massacre?

WASHINGTON
Newsweek magazine re-
ported this week that Israeli
intelligence prevented an
attack by Christian
Phalangists on a Palesti-
nian refugee camp near
Sidon and warned that the
Phalange" were eager to
purge Beirut of remaining
Palestinians.
Newsweek claims the
Mossad report was part of
the 10-page secret annex to
the official Israeli report on
the Beirut massacre. The
Mossad report was addi-
tional evidence, according
to Newsweek, that Israeli
officials should have ex-
pected bloodshed in the Be-
irut camps.

contacts between his
party and the Jewish
community in Palestine
and recognized that both
could gain from coopera-
tion. He thought there
should be further study
given the possibility.
Dan's research disclosed
that Lutzki advocated rela-
tions with Elias Rabibi,
editor of the Phalangist
newspaper Al Ammal. He
said Rabibi showed more
openness than Gemayel and
hinted that bribing the
editors of Lebanese Chris-
tian newspapers could ad-
vance the Jewish cause.
According to Dan, rela-
tions with the Phalangists
continued into the early
1950s. Lutzki served later
in the Foreign Ministry. His
last post was as Israel's
Ambassador to the Domini-
can Republic where he died
seven years ago in a road
accident.
