Lebanon 'chaos' seen


Tel Aviv (JTA) — Brigadier-
General Amos Gilboa, head of the
Israeli delegation to the Israel-
Lebanon military talks at Nak-
ura, foresees chaos in Lebanon if
Israel is forced to decide on a un-
ilateral withdrawal from Leba-
non without satisfactory ar-
rangements being made in ad-
vance to ensure security.
Gen. Gilboa told Israel radio
last week that if such a unilateral
withdrawal is made, the Druze
will take action to seize control of
the Christian areas, especially
those along the coast below their
Kharoub mountain region. They
would also probably try to seize
Sidon port.
The Shiite Amal military
organization would move to take
control of southern Lebanon, and
there would likely be fighting be-
tween the various Shiite Moslem
factions, the general said. He also
thinks the PLO would try to re-
turn to the southern area abut-
ting Israel.
Gen. Gilboa was pessimistic
about Syria's chances of using the
Christmas and New Year's recess
to bring about some form of stabil-
ity in Lebanon.
United Nations Secretary Gen-
eral Javier Perez de Cuellar is re-
ported to have told Israel's Am-
bassador to the UN, Binyamin
Netanyahu, that he would try and
use the end-of-year recess to per-
suade the Lebanese government
to get the Nakura talks restarted.
Natanyahu reportedly told Perez
de Cuellar that if the talks fail,
the Israel Defense Force (IDF)
would have to effect a redisposi-
tion in Lebanon.
In an Israel radio interview last
week marking the 100th day of
the national unity government,
Deputy Premier and Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir, whose
Likud Party is opposed to Shimon
Peres' ideas on unilateral with-
drawal, said that Israel would
have to thin out its forces in Leba-
non if the Nakura talks fail.
Meanwhile, a massive car bomb
exploded in the courtyard of a
school in the Lebanese Druze vil-

lage of Ras Al-Mattan in the hills
east of Beirut last Friday. More
than 25 people, including a
number of children, were killed or
Druze radio reported that the
booby-trapped car had been
packed with over 200 killograms
(about 450 pounds) of explosives.
Extensive damage to buildings
was reported over a wide area.
Immediately after the blast,
Druze gunners lobbed at least two
artillery shells in the Christian
suburbs of the east Beirut, caus-
ing several casualties.
There were no casualties in two
guerrilla attacks against IDF and
South Lebanon Army (SLA)
troops in south Lebanon last

A Katyusha rocket was fired at
an IDF position near the Zaharani
River, last Friday, but burst in an
empty field. Also on Friday, light-
arms fire was directed at a SLA
post south of the Zaharani.
The IDF arrested 21 Shiite Mos-
lems from Sarafand and Ein
Hilwe villages last Thursday for
questioning in connection with
recent attacks on IDF and South
Lebanon Army (SLA) units. The
detainees include several mem-
bers of Amal, the Shiite militia.
The IDF reported resistance
from villagers, including women -
and children, during its round-up
In a related development, two
French soldiers of the United Na-
tions Interim Force in Lebanon
(UNIFIL) were wounded last
week when a UN convoy from Be-
irut to Nakura came under small
arms fire. The convoy returned to
Beirut where the soldiers were
Beirut radio reported Dec. 19
that an IDF column of 15 tanks
and a bulldozer patrolled north of
the Awali River into territory
evacuated months ago by the IDF.
The column was reported to be
headed toward the Kharoub area
where heavy artillery exchanges
were reported between Druze and
Christian militias.

School for Peace, an educational
center in intergroup relations.
Neve Shalom, or Oasis for Peace,
is where Arabs, Christians and

In an effort to develop new edu-
cational programs in Israel to-re-
duce ethnic divisions in Israeli
society, the foundation has an-
nounced a grant of $150,000 to the
Van Leer Institute, a private
group that prepares curriculum

materials and trains teachers in
their use.
A Ford Foundation grant last
year to the Van Leer Institute was
used to evaluate and supplement
texts currently used by Jews and
Arabs in primary and secondary
schools and to develop materials
on language, culture, literature
and intergroup relations.
In making the announcement,
the foundation noted that at pre-
sent, "Arab school children are
required to study such subjects as
Jewish immigration to Israel,
Hebrew and Jewish scripture.
Jewish children, on the other
hand, do not study Arabic, Arab
culture or the basic tenets of Is-
Furthermore, the foundation
cited an Israeli Education Minis-
try paper that said state interven-
tion to further understanding is a
"vital need," adding that "in the
absence of appropriate education,
directed on a national scale, it is
