Dispute still up in the air
over MK, Kach Party clash

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The
verbal and physical assault
of four Knesset members by
supporters of Rabbi Meir
Kahane's Kach Party as
they tried to visit Tel Mond
Prison Sunday, and the re-
fusal by Interior and Police
Minister Yosef Burg to
allow them to enter the
prison continued to make
waves throughout the coun-
try this week. - -
The four MKs — Mor-
dechai Virshubski of Sinui,
Bennie Shalit of Likud,
Yair Tsaban of the Mapam
wing of the Labor Align-
ment, and Mordechai
Bar-On of the Citizens
Rights Movement — had
announced their intention
last week of seeing whether
members of the Jewish un-
derground were getting
preferential treatment in
prison while awaiting trial.
Kahane also announced his
intention last week to stop
the MKs from getting into
the prison.
The parliamentarians
contended that their visit to
the prison was a right given
them under Knesset im-
munity and did not have to
be coordinated with the
prison authorities or the
Minister of Police, although
they did inform Burg of
their intention.
Legal experts, however,
said Monday that the legal
issue was not clear regard-
ing whether parliamentary
immunity allowed a Knes-
set member to enter a prison
without prior coordination
with the authorities. Most
held that MKs appeared to
be in error since immunity
referred to public places, not
to closed institutions such
as a prison.
Nevertheless, Virshubski
said Monday that he and
other MKs would visit Tel

Teachers asked
to stress values
of democracy

Jerusalem (JTA) —
Teachers throughout the
country' will be asked to
stress to students the na-
ture of democratic values,
the meaning of tolerance
and openness to varying
views, and to warn the chil-
dren against phenomena
which could destroy the re-
lations between Jews and
This was announced here
by Education Minister
Zevulun Hammer at a
meeting with parents. He
said •that the, pedagogic
secretariat of the Education
Ministry has already set up
a team which would prepare
a special study curriculum
in democracy. However,
Hammer added, until that
program is ready, teachers
will be asked at the begin-
ning of the school year to
devote time to this issue.

Burg again repeated his
charge Monday that the
four MKs were engaged in a
political and public rela-
tions ploy by trying to get
into Tel Mond Prison Sun-
day without having coordi-

authorities. Burg also said
he was still awaiting a full
report from the police and

set speaker, as requested by
When the four MKs- ar-
rived at the Tel Mond
Prison they were sur-
rounded by between 20 and
30 Kahane supporters,

many of them wearing yel-
low shirts with the Kach
emblem on them. Among
the demonstrators was the
family of an Israel Defense
Force soldier who was killed
by terrorists in the West
Bank two weeks ago. The
PLO claimed responsibility
for the murder.
Demonstrators pummel-
led and.cursed the MKs and
yelled "terrorists," "PLO
lovers," "We will smash in
your faces . . . We will break
your legs." Police denied
that any physical violence
had taken place. Prison
guards behind the gates
stood by passively as the
MKs were being pummel-
led. After a half hour of
tumult the Sharon district
police deputy inspector,
Kalman Bernstein, arrived.
He later told Israel Radio
that. he had plainclothes
policemen in the crowd and
had arrived as soon as he
thought police reinforce-
ments were warranted.

Israeli warplanes strike
Lebanese terrorist• base

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israeli
warplanes hit a terrorist
base near Majdel Anjar in
east Lebanon Tuesday, an
army spokesman reported.
The planes destroyed build-
ings at the base in the
Bekaa Valley that was op-
erated by Palestinian rebel
leader Abu Musa. All Is-
raeli aircraft returned
safely to their base.
The army spokesman said
the base had been Used as 'a
departure point for attacks
by terrorists operating from
behind Syrian lines in east
Lebanon. Another base
used by the Abu Musa ter-
rorists was bombed Aug. 16
after their leader claimed
responsibility for a
thwarted car-bombing at-
tempt in Jerusalem.
Tuesday's attack followed
reports that three Israel De-
fense Force soldiers were
wounded in south Lebanon
within a 24 hour span. One
was wounded Tuesday
when a roadside explosion
was set off as a conoy passed
by on a road west of the
Ansar detention camp. Two

wounded Monday in a clash
with a terrorist band north-
east of Tyre.

Both incidents occurred
in the area known as the
"iron triangle" which is in-
habited by Shiite Moslems
who have carried out many
attacks on the IDF in recent
weeks. In a search of the
area, IDF soldiers found a
large cache of arms, includ-
ing Katyusha rockets, mis-
siles and rocket-propelled
The IDF instituted new
security arrangements at
the Awali River crossing in
this region, including a
"terminal building" where
passengers and vehicles are
searched, to reduce the
amount of arms smuggling
between the north and
south - of Lebanon. The
bridge, which had been
closed last week, has now
been reopened, and delays
at the crossing point have
been reduced from three or
four days to about three
hours. ,
