as the cause for the troubles in the
Lebanese crisis.
In consideration of the Syrian
involvements, the anti-Israel
threats from that area must never
be overlooked. Therefore, the fol-
lowing evidence of threats to the
Jewish state, which are therefore
threats to the Middle East peace,
must always be kept in view:
1974 — General Mustafa
Tlas, Syrian Chief of Staff,
proposing that medals be
given to Syrian soldiers
who participated in the
massacre of Israeli POWs
on Mount Hermon during
the Yom Kippur War:
"There is the outstand-
ing recruit from Alleppo
who killed all by himself 28
slaughtered them like
sheep. This was witnessed
by all his comrades.
"Moreover, he killed
three of them with an ax
and decapitated them. In
other words, he didn't use
a military weapon to kill
them, but used an ax to
chop their heads from
their bodies. He fought
with one of them face to
face, laid down his ax,
broke his neck and de-
voured his flesh.
"Need I single him out
for special honor? I will
award the medal of the re-
public to any soldier who
kills 28 Jews." (A speech
before the Syrian National
Assembly as reported by
Syria's official gazette, Al
Jarida al Rasmiya, No. 27,
July 11, 1974.)

1984 — Syrian Defense
Minister Mustafa Tlas, re-
sponding to Israel's com-
plaints that Syria had vio-
lated its agreement to re-
turn the remains of Israeli
soldiers killed in Lebanon
in 1982:
"After all, she (Israel)
will never identify the re-
mains. How can Israel ex-
pect to identify the skele-
tons after all this time? We
sent her dogs' bones and
she can protest all she
wants." (An interview with
the pro-Saudi newspaper
Al-Majla, printed in Lon-
don, on Aug. 4, 1984.)
Syrian Defense Minister
Mustafa Tlas:
"Our front is open to any
Palestinian who wants to
fight against the enemy.
We, on our part, will pro-
vide all of the necessary
facilities. You can tell
whoever wishes to fight
against Israel that he is
welcome and can fight
from the Syrian front. I am
prepared to defend and
safeguard all that is neces-
sary for him to attain his
goal." (An interview with
the pro-Saudi newspaper
Al-Majla, printed in Lon-
don, Aug. 4, 1984.)
Again, tragically, only the
United States saw through the
menace, and the Western Powers
represented at the U.N. Security
Council gave comfort to the bar-
barians in their vote on the anti-
Israel resolution. That's how the
international scene is kept pol-
