United Nations General Assembly opens

United Nations (JTA) — The
39th session of the General As-
sembly opened Tuesday after-
noon, seemingly in a conciliatory
mood in view of the upcoming
meeting between President Rea-
gan and Soviet Foreign Minister
Andrei Gromyko on Sept. 28 in
Washington.
But diplomats said the issue of
the Middle East conflict will
probably again dominate the dis-
cussions of the General Assembly
this year as it has in past years.
According to diplomats, Iran,
Libya and Syria have been
engaged in intensified efforts to
deny Israel its credentials when
the Credentials Committee pre-
sents its report for General As-
sembly approval. According to the
diplomats, the three extremist
countries have been lobbying in
various capitals, expecially
among Moslem countries, to join
in a vote to suspend Israel from
the current session. If Israel's cre-
dentials are denied, it is, in effect,
suspended from the General As-
sembly.
Two years ago, when Iran
started to push the move to sus-
pend Israel, it had only eight sup-
porting votes. Last year the
number of countries joining Iran's
motion rose to 43. According to
Ambassador Aryeh Levin, the
acting permanent representative
of Israel to the United Nations,
the number of countries support-
ing the Iranian move this year
could increase to 48-50.
But, Levin explained in a brief-

Oil firm claims
Bible will lead
investors to riches

Salt Lake City — Ford Oil and
Development Inc., a three-year-
old energy firm with no capital
assets or recent operating history,
is telling prospective investors
that Old Testament prophets will
lead them to oil in Israel.
"What we are saying is if there
is no oil in Israel, then we don't
have a Jesus," James Groover,
president of Messenger III Corp.,
a major shareholder in Ford Oil
said. "If there is no oil, then the
word of the Bible isn't true."

OBITUARIES

Meyer- Rubin

Meyer R. Rubin, a practicing
attorney with offices in Detroit,
died Sept. 15 at age 80.
Born in Poland, Mr. Rubin lived
74 years in the U.S. He was
graduated from the University of
Michigan Law School in 1931 and
was admitted to the bar that same
year.
He was the first secretary of
Adat Shalom Synagogue and
former secretary of Marshall
Lodge of B'nai B'rith.
He is survived by his wife,
Mabel; a son, Theodore S.; a
daughter, Mrs. Alan (Susan)
Saltzman; and a sister, Mrs. Ada
Handelsman; and four grand-
children.

ing for Israeli reporters, the Ira-
nian move is expected to be
thwarted as it was last year, by a
motion to set aside the Iranian re-
quest until the end of the General
Assembly.
The Iranian plan thereby would
be ignored by the Assembly.
The set-aside motion last year
was introduced by Norway and
the motion this year is also ex-
pected to come from one of the
Scandinavian countries.
Meanwhile, the general debate
of the General Assembly will open
Monday with an address by
President Reagan. Foreign Minis-
ter Yitzhak Shamir of Israel will
be present during Reagan's ad-
dress.

Shamir is scheduled to arrive
Sunday and remain in New York
for ten days to two weeks. He will
address the General Assembly
Oct. 3.
During his stay in New York,
Shamir is expected to meet with
about 30 foreign ministers from
around the world. These include
Secretary of State George Shultz
and the foreign ministers of Brit-
ain, France and other European
nations as well as of countries of
Africa and South America.
The new Israeli Ambassador to
the U.N., Benyamin Netanyahu,
will present his credentials to
Secretary General Javier Perez de
Cuellar next week. The Israeli
delegation to the General Assem-
bly will be strengthened by seven
more members.
The President of Argentina,
Raul Alfonsin, who will address

the General Assembly on Mon-
day, will probably meet next week
with Shamir.
According to Levin, the major
Middle East issues will be dealt
with during the Palestinian and
Middle East debates when Pales-
tine Liberation Organization and
Arab countries will press again
for an international peace confer-
ence on the Middle East.
The Middle East, also will fig-
ure in the Security Council when,
on Oct. 19, the mandate of the
United Nationsl Interim Force in
Lebanon (UNIFIL) comes up for
extension and on Nov. 30 when
the mandate of the United Na-
tions Disengagement Observers
Force (UNDOF) which separates
Israeli and Syrian forces on the
Golan Heights, is also due for ex-
tension.
Levin noted that the Arab
foreign ministers are having a
meeting in Tunis on Tuesday, be-
fore their arrival in New York for
the General Assembly. The Arab
foreign ministers could revive the
issue of Israeli settlements at the
Security Council.
The major general issues at this
year's General Assembly will be
economic and disarmament ques-
tions and the threat of famine in
Africa. "But the most noisy debate
and shouting will take place
about the Middle East and Israel."
one diplomat remarked.
Secretary General Javier Peres
de Cuellar said Monday that he
hopes Israel's new Premier, Shi-
mon Peres, will reconsider the
withdrawal of Israeli troops from

south Lebanon in line with the
proposals given by the Secretary
General when he visited
Jerusalem last March.
De Cuellar said that when he
met with then Premier Yitzhak
Shamir and with Peres, he pro-
posed that Israel withdraw its
troops from south Lebanon
gradually with the assistance of
the U.S. peace keeping forces in
the area. De Cuellar said Monday
that he proposed the idea to Peres
and that the newly-elected Pre-
mier "listened with great atten-
tion and interest."
He added that after the Israeli
troops complete their withdrawal
his proposals call for the U.N.
forces to hand over the area to the
Lebanese government.
De Cuellar said that one of the
issues he will discuss with
Mideast foreign ministers will be

The Secretary General was re-

last year to organize such a con-

so far he has not received a posit-

attend such a conference. Israel
rejected the idea a few months ago
in a letter to de Cuellar.
