Cease-Fire Accord Eludes
Lebanese Leaders at Parley

LAUSANNE (JTA) — A
rift developed in the
Lebanese National reconcil-
iation conference here
Tuesday when the partici-
pants, ravin g agreed in
principle on the urgent need
for a cease-fire, were unable
to agree how it would be
supervised and in what
framework. The differences
were so acute that the con-
ference degenerated into a
shouting match at one
point, some of those present
reported.

A group of eight leaders
representing the main fac-
tions in Lebanon are attend-
ing. The original proposal
for a cease-fire was that the
heads of the four largest
militias — Walid Jumblatt
of the Druze, Nabih Berri of
the Shiite Moslem Al Amal
and Camille Chamoun and
Pierre Gemayel, represent-
ing the Christian Free
Lebanese Forces — would
jointly declare a cease-fire
of indefinite duration. This

would be signed by
President Amin Gemayel.
Jumblatt and Berri ob-
jected on grounds that
Gemayel should not be
given the prerogative of an
arbiter because like them-
selves, he is no more than
the head of one of the war-
ring factions.
The split developed at the
outset of the conference over
who and what elements will
control the truce. Some par-
ticipants, mainly the Chris-
tians, wanted the army to
undertake the task. Others
insisted that the militias
be formally mobilized and
assume the role of the na-
tional forces.
The conference is the sec-
ond round of Lebanese re-
conciliation talks. The first
round, held in Geneva,
ended in failure last No-
vem.ber. Since then,
President Gemayel has
formally repudiated his
withdrawal and security
agreement with Israel, as
demanded by Syria.

Israel Makes Last Ditch
Try to Halt Bonn Arms Deal

BONN (JTA) — Israel is
making a last-minute effort
to dissuade the Bonn gov-
ernment from signing an
arms deal with Saudi
Arabia. The Israeli Ambas-
sador here, Itzchak Ben Ari,
warned that such a deal
would only increase ten-
sions in the Middle East.
He also said Jerusalem
was very much concerned
over plans by several major
West German arms man-
ufacturers to open factories
in Egypt.
But the Israelis are dis-
turbed most by the probabil-
ity that Bonn will sell ad-
vanced weaponry to the
Saudis. It has been cam-
paigning against this for
months and has enlisted the
support of American Jews to
put direct pressure on West
Germany and to get the
American Administration
to do the same.

Chancellor Helmut Kohl,
who was in Washington last
week, said no final decision
has been made on arms
sales to Saudi Arabia. But
he indicated that the deal
would be made. He insisted
that the arms would be of
defensive nature and pose
no threat to Israel.

Israel's Minister for Eco-
nomic Affairs, Yaacov
Meridor, said in an inter-
view in Die Welt last week
that he believed that Bonn,
in the end, would not sell
arms to Saudi Arabia.

Ben Ari denied press re-
ports here that Israel may
be interested in buying
arms from West Germany.
The reports indicated that
Bonn offered arms to Israel
if the Israelis toned doWn
their campaign against
arms sales to Arab coun-
tries.

Two Men Are Arrested
in Grave Robbing Incident

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Two
Orthodox Jews from Rishon
LeZion have been remanded
in custody for 15 days on
suspicion of grave robbing.
A Rehovot magistrate's
court identified them last
week as David Aronfeld, 34,
a driver and gravedigger
employed by the Hevra
Kadisha Burial Society in
Rishon LeZion and Meir
Agassi, who works in the
religious township of Bnei
Brak. Police are continuing
their investigation to de-
termine whether other per-
sons were implicated.
Aronfield and Agassi are
suspected of having illeg-
ally removed the skeleton of
Teresa Engelovitz from her
grave in the Rishon LeZion
Jewish cemetery March 1
and transporting it in Agas-
si's truck to Ramle. The
skeleton of a woman, pos-
itively identified by police,

forensic experts as Mrs.
Engelovitz.
The case has stirred a con-
flict between civil and reli-
gious authorities. The local
rabbinate in Rishon LeZion
ordered Mrs. Engelovitz's
body exhumed several
months after the deceased
was buried a year ago on
grounds that she had not
been converted to Judaism
in her native Romania ac-
cording to strict orthodox
practice. A court injunction
prevented the rabbinate's
order from being carried
out.
After the skeleton was
identified, Israel's chief
rabbis and the local rabbi-
nate deplored the apparent
grave robbery but insisted
that the remains could not
be re-buried in the Jewish
cemetery. The Supreme
Court overruled their objec-
tions
