Abba Eban: Advocating a
U.S. role

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Abba Eban,
the former Foreign Minister who
currently chairs the Knesset's
Foreign Affairs and Security
Committee, would like to see the
United States embark once more
on "an era of controlled activism"
in the Middle East.
The time has come for the U.S.
to take new initiatives in the
region, Eban said last week. "The
U.S. seems now to be much less
disposed to enter the arena than it
was a few years ago." he conceded
that many- Israelis would prefer
no new American initiatives.
However, the Israeli diplomat
said, "My own feeling is that we
gained a great deal from Ameri-
can activity in the five years from
1974 to 1979."
He enumerated the five agree-
ments concluded in that period
between Israel and its neighbors
through U.S. mediation: the dis-
engagement agreements with
Egypt and Syria after the Yom
Kippur War; the Sinai interim
agreement with Egypt; the Camp
David agreement and finally the

Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty
signed in 1979.
"I think it is about time for the
wheel to turn into an era of con-
trolled activism," Eban said. He
suggested in that context "help-
ing us mediate a settlement in
Lebanon such as would enable us
to move out of Lebanon without
endangering our security, if they
(the Americans) would develop
their relations with Syria to that
end; if they would work for a more
warm human content in relations
between Egypt and Israel; and if
they would then investigate the
possibility of an Israeli-Jordan
negotiation on the basis of (UN
Security Council) Resolution
242."
Eban said American activity, in
that order of priority, "would be
more useful than for all of us to sit
back and do nothing." He added,
"I have a traumatic recollection
which tells me that periods of dip-
lomatic inactivity usually end in
war and do not end in peace."
Eban said there was nothing in
the Labor-Likud unity coalition
agreement to prevent the gov-
ernment from implementing the
national consensus for dis-
engagement from Lebanon.
He observed that every week Is-
rael stayed in Lebanon seemed to
increase the rancor of the Shiite
Moslems, the majority population
in South Lebanon. "We seem to
have exchanged PLO rancor for a
rancor and a hatred which is even
more intense, because instead of a
few thousand PLO people we have
three quarters of a million Shiites
and a great danger they will be-
come our enemies. It is therefore
very urgent to find an exit " from
Lebanon, Eban said.
Dr. Clinton Bailey, a Tel Aviv
University authority on the
Shiites, said he thought Eban's
analysis was essentially correct
but that Shiite hostility toward
Israel was not necessarily a per-
manent phenomenon.

Compensation for doctor

Tel Aviv (JTA) — A heart at-
tack suffered by a Haifa surgeon
after performig four operations on
cancer patients found to be termi-
nal has been recognized by the
National Insurance Institute as a
work-related accident.
Dr. Fridel Kretchner, of the
Carmel Hospital's surgical de-
partment, claimed compensation
in the Haifa district court for the
heart attack he suffered 18
months ago.
He said that he had operated on
four patients within a short time,
and in each case, after beginning
the operations, he had found that
the stomach cancer growth was
inoperable and the patients were
doomed to die within weeks or
months.
He said that after the operating
session he had got into his car to
drive home in a very depressed
state. He- had suddenly blacked
out and crashed into two other
cars.
He said his depression and loss
of consciousness, from a heart at-
tack, was due to his work.

After the evidence had been
presented in the court the repre-
sentative of the National Insur-
ance Institute rose to say the gov-
ernment institute was prepared to
accept the claim of a work-related
accident.
The judge gave legal force to the
institute's acknowledgement, and
the surgeon will receive financial
compensation.

ment has decided to convene the

million Jewish soldiers who
