Israelis trade fire with Syrians
in effort to free trapped patrol

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israeli
army tank gunners traded
fire with Syrian forces last
week in an effort to extri-
cate an IDF patrol pinned
down by Syrian fire. There
were no Israeli casualties,
an army spokesman said.
Elsewhere on the Leba-
non front the army spokes-
man said that the south
Lebanon army (SLA) has
been active in recent days
and has exposed a hostile
organization which origi-
nated in an Arab village.
The spokesman said that

several of the local residents
of the village connected
with the organization have
been arrested, including
Sheikh Abo-El-Karim
Shams-A-Din, a local nota-
The arrested men are re-
ported to have admitted to
involvement in a large
number of attacks on both
the IDF and the SLA.
The sheikh is said to not
only have been involved in
the organization but also to
have initiated its activities
and directed its operations.

House unit hears testimony
on Free Trade Agreement

Washington (JTA) — Op-
ponents to the proposed
United States-Israel free
trade area (FTA) joined
forces on Capitol Hill last
week in two days of tes-
timony before the subcom-
mittee on trade of the House
Ways and Means Commit-
tee to voice their fears that
such an agreement might
disrupt American markets
and create unemployment
and displacement through
competition from Israeli
duty-free products.
These were the final set of
hearings before the House
subcommittees, chaired by
Rep. Sam Gibbons (D-Fla.).
Last month, the Senate Fi-
nance Committee headed by
Sen. Robert Dole (R-Kans.),
approved a free trade area
Florida citrus growers,
American fruit and vegeta-
ble growers, California to-
mato packers, onion and
garlic growers of Nevada,
rose growers, and textile
and apparel manufacturers
were among those who ex-
pressed doubts that the FTA
would be beneficial. to the
U.S. as well as Israel.
Robert Keeney, vice
president, government rela-
tions, United Fruit and
Vegetable Association,
stated that United "opposes
the FTA as long as trade
sensitive fresh fruit and
vegetables are included in
the agreement." He added,
"We are of the opinion that
duty free status for all Is-
raeli fruits and vegetables
without providing a sig-
nificant opportunity for in-
creased trade for our prod-
ucts in Israel" is harmful.

Representatives of
American Jewish organiza-
tions sought to allay the
fears of the trade represen- .
tatives and Congressmen by
pointing out the more posit-
ive aspects the FTA would
create. Alfred Moses,
chairman, National Execu-
tive( Council, American
Jewish Committee, • slated,

"The AJCommittee is con-
vinced that the passage of
this bill and the actual im-
plementation of the agree-
ment will be of benefit both
to the United States and Is-
rael for the following rea-
"The proposed FTA will
open new export oppor-
tunities for U.S. manufac-
turers; provide Israel with
an opportunity to reduce
her balance of payments de-
ficit to the U.S.; open new
research and development
opportunities for U.S. com-
panies in Israel: provide
new opportunities for U.S.
companies operating their
plants in Israel to sell their
products in Europe."
Moses contended that the
FTA will not adversely af-
fect U.S. jobs. On the con-
trary, he maintained that
the FTA will add jobs for
Americans by increasing
opportunities for the export
of U.S. products to Israel.
"U.S. manufacturers will be
able to sell more products —
employing more workers in
the U.S. — as a result of
sales in EEC countries of Is-
raeli products containing
U.S. origin materials,"
Moses started.

Council of Metropolitan De-
troit is urging the public to

sentatives and United

The SLA shot and killed
two guerrillas when a SLA
patrol was fired at from an
ambush near the south
Lebanon village of Jezzine.
The attackers were found
to have been in possession of
hand grenades.
Meanwhile, five -Israeli
soldiers were injured in
south Lebanon, none seri-
ously, when a booby-
trapped car exploded as it
passed their convoy on the
coast road less than a mile
south of the Zaharani River.
According to Beirut radio,
credit for the incident was
claimed by a hitherto un-
known group called Jabr
Amal. In a later announce-
ment the Lebanon Resis-
tance Movement took re-
sponsibility, claiming that
the car was driven by a 17
year-old suicide volunteer.
In a related development,
four Israeli soldiers were
wounded when a bomb
exploded on a roadside near
Bazuriya village, six
kilometers east of Tyre in
south Lebanon.
A man who aimed a
hand-held missile launcher
at an IDF patrol in the cen-
ter of Sidon was shot to
death by a soldier of the
On Tuesday, an Israeli
Defense Force patrol killed
three Arabs in south Leba-
non when they were caught
planting a bomb on a road-
side south of Sidon.
In another development,
Defense Minister Moshe
Arens has rejected former
Defense Minister Ezer
Weizman's request to visit
IDF troops in Lebanon on
grounds that it would be an
intrusion of politics.

Critic of Nazis
is compensated
after rebuke

Bonn (JTA) — West Ger-
man courts have ordered
the town of Bad Hersfeld to
pay 45,000 marks to actress
Eva Renzi, who was dis-
missed from a theater festi-
val there last year after she
criticized the local
authorities for renting a
public hall to veterans of the
Waffen SS.
Bad Hersfeld, a remote
village in Hesse, was the
scene of the Nazi reunion
and of a theater festival
under the patronage of
President Karl Carstens of
the Federal Republic.
Renzi, one of the best
known performers on the
West German stage, par-
ticipated in an anti-Nazi
rally, published an open let-
ter to the town' fathers and
referred to Carstens as an
"old Nazi."
In retaliation, she was
forcedlo- leave the - festival.
