Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israeli
Defense Minister Moshe
Arens has appointed a
commission to investigate
the circumstances sur-
rounding the deaths of four
rrorists the circumstances
arrounding the deaths of
four terrorists when Israeli
troops stormed a hijacked
bus April 13.
Meanwhile,
the
authorities ordered the
newspaper Hadoshot sus-
pended for four days for
breach of censorship. The
tabloid reported the estab-

Second Israeli
child undergoes
liver transplant

New York (JTA) — A sec-
ond Israeli child has been
flown to the United States
for a liver transplant during
the past two months, but
unlike 19-month-old Chaya
Cohen of Natanya, Limor
Eisner, a 12-year-old
daughter of Holocaust sur-
vivors, had a successful
transplant in Pittsburgh on
April 7 and "is really mak-
ing a remarkable recovery."
That report on Eisner of
Givatayim was made by
Jane Berkley, director of
planning of the Jewish Fed-
eration of Greater
Pittsburgh, which has
mobilized the resources of
the Pittsburgh Jewish
community to help the
child's parents, Joel and
Pnina Eisner, particularly
the huge costs the trans-
plant operation and post-
operative care entail:
The father has been an
Egged bus driver in Tel
Aviv for 26 years, after
entering Palestine illegally
in 1947, with his wife. They
had three children, a boy
and two girls.
Yoram, the son, died five
years ago of the same liver
disease when he was 17.
Doctors say it is rare for two
children in one family to
have the disease. The
mother is recovering in a
Tel Aviv hospital from gall
bladder surgery and, ac-
cording to the federation,
hopes to rejoin her husband
-ind the two children in
ttsburgh.
The Egged bus company,
Eisner's employer, raised
funds for the flight of Eisner
and his two daughters to
Pittsburgh, where Limor
was promptly admitted to
Children's Hospital for tests
and surgery, with hospital
officials indicating confi-
dence the bill would be paid.
Chaya Cohen has been
approved for the transplant
by the bledical staff of the
University of Minnesota
Hospital and is awaiting a
suitable liver dpnation.

ficially announced. The Is-
rael Supreme Court rejected
an appeal by the paper
against the suspension.
Arens announced that the
commission would be
headed by Maj. Gen. (Res.)
Meir Zorea, a former De-
fense Ministry comptroller,
and that its report would be
published. According to the
Defense Ministry, Arens in-
structed Zorea to complete
his investigation as quickly
as possible.
The investigation was
prompted by widespread
media reports that at least
one of the terrorists was
taken into custody un-
harmed, implying that he
was subsequently mur-
dered. All four, residents of
the Gaza Strip, were buried
on April 15 under army
supervision.
David Shipler, the New
York Times correspondent
in Jerusalem, was sum-
moned to the government
press office last week and
was reprimanded by its
head, Morton Dolinsky, for
dispatching his report of the
incident to New York with-
out submitting it to the cen-
sor. He was admonished for
a "serious breach" of censor-
ship regulations.
Reporters present when
troops surrounded and then
assaulted the Tel Aviv-to-
Ashkelon Egged- bus were-
quoted by Israel Radio as
saying that two of the ter-
rorists were killed on the
spot. Arens was later quoted
as saying that he had no
reason to disbelieve the
army account that the other
two died or their wounds
shortly afterwards, one of
them on the way to a hospi-
tal.

Cop foils
terror blast

Jerusalem (JTA) — An
alert policeman was cre-
dited last week with pre-
venting another terrorist
attack in Jerusalem that
could have resulted • in
heavy civilian casualties.
The officer noticed a
suspicious-looking bag in
the Givat Shaul quarter on
the western outskirts of the
city. He summoned police
sappers who found that the
bag contained a powerful
explosive device which they
dismantled safely.
The last assault in
Jerusalem occurred April 2
when three . terrorists
opened fire and hurled gre-
nades on King George Ave.
near Jaffa Rd., the city's
busiest intersection,
wounding 48 persons.
Armed civilians at the scene
killed one terrorist and cap-
tured another. The third
was captured by police.

But a photograph, taken
by a Hadoshot reporter,
showed one man, appar-
ently unharmed, being led
away from the scene hand-
cuffed by two plainsclothes
Israeli security men.
Friends and relatives later
identified the man as 18-
year-old Majdi Abu Jama, of
Beni Shuheila village in the
Gaza Strip, one of the bus
hijackers.

Arens originally said the
incident was being
"routinely" investigated by
the army. He announced the
special inquiry after de-
mands by opposition politi-
cians and local editors for a
thorough investigation.

The authorities cracked
down on Hadoshot, a new

In a letter to the Secre-
tary General, Blum, reply-
ing to an earlier letter on•
the issue by .de Cuellar, re-
called that Israel voted
against such a conference in
the last General Assembly.
The Israeli ambassador de-
clared "that the sole path to
a peaceful settlement in the
Middle East is that of direct
negotiations, based on Se-
curity Council Resolution
242 — which has already
proven effective in bringing
about the Camp David ac-
cords and, through them,
the Israeli-Egypt treaty of
peace of March 26, 1979."

Israel marks
May Day

Histadrut and Labor
party leaders headed a May
Day parade in Haifa. The
slogan was "Stop the Col-
lapse," a reference to Is-
rael's economic woes. There
were a number of rallies in
other parts of the country as
well.

Hadoshot won a 30-day in-

the Defense Minister bar-

The Press Council and the
Editors Committee have re-
fused to back Hadoshot be-
cause it "broke the censor-
ship law." But observers
suggested that the Council
and the Committee decided
the issue was not a matter of
"freedom of the press" be-
cause of their ongoing dis-
pute with the publishers of
Hadoshot. They do not be-
long to either group, do not
employ members of the _
