Arens Hits Lebanese Army Performance

-(Continued from Page 1)
_ In his appearance be-
fore the Knesset panel,
Arens said that in a few
instances, such as the
battle for the Lebanese
Christian stronghold of
Souk Al-Gharb, ter-
- rorists fought alongside
athe Druze. But the Druze
did not allow them to re-
main in the territory they
took from the Lebanese
army. He noted that the
Druze and Shiites enjoy

.

the support of the local
population.
Arens said Israel did not
oppose the United Nations
Interim Force in Lebanon
(UNIFIL) as an element in
the security of south Leba-
non. But he pointed out that
UNIFIL could operate only
with the consent of all par-
ties concerned.
Last week, Israeli leaders
appeared to be resigned to
the fact that Gemayel would
abrogate the Israeli-

Communications
Lebanese security agree-
ment. Israeli Premier Yit- Minister Mordecai Zip-
zhak Shamir warned that pori said there was a na-
such an occurrence, de- tional consensus in Israel
manded by the Moslems and in favor of pulling out of
Syria, "would be a blow to Lebanon. He said the
Lebanon's own sover- Cabinet ministers were
eignty." He stressed that Is- nearly unanimous on the
rael "would protect our issue. He said the only
interests and ensure the se- differences were over
curitIr of our northern bor- how long it would take.
Meanwhile, more than

Shamir hinted in a 16,000 Lebanese have

rulings which rejected the
claim of a Presbyterian
store manager that his reli-
gious rights had been vio-
lated by his being compelled
to work on Sunday have
been encouraged by two re-
cent legal developments in
the case, a spokesman for
one of the agencies said
Monday.
Dennis Rapps, executive
director of the National
Jewish Commission on Law
and Public Affairs
(COLPA), said one de-
velopment was the action of
the state of Connecticut in
filing a motion on Feb. 10 in
support of COLPA's petition
for certiorari in the Sup-
reme Court. Certiorari is a
petition for review.
The petition by COLPA,
with which the American
Jewish Congress is associ-
ated, was filed with the high
court by Nathan Lewin, a
Washington attorney and
COLPA vice president; on
behalf of Donald Thornton,
who was a manager for one
of the Caldor chain stores in
Connecticut.
The other development
is a petition for a similar
writ of certiorari for
Thornton filed with the
Supreme Court by the
federal Department of
Justice.
Rapps told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that,
given the intervention for
the plaintiff by both the at-
torney general of Connec-
ticut and the federal sol-
icitor general, the possibil-
ity that the Supreme Court
would decline to consider
the appeal for Thornton was
highly unlikely.
On the COLPA brief with
Lewin are listed Rapps and
Daniel Chazin, COLPA
general counsel; and Lois
Waldman and Marc Stern,
acting director and assis-
tant director, respectively,
of the AJCongress legal
staff.
According to the peti-
tions, when Thornton asked
to be excused from working
on Sundays, the Caldor
management offered to
transfer him to a store in
Massachusetts or to demote
him. Thornton rejected the
out-of-state transfer pro-
posal. He sued Caldor under
a 1976 revision of the state's
Sunday laws, specifiying no
employe could be required
to work on his or her Sab-
bath.
