Israel Begins 2nd Stage
of Lebanon Withdrawal

New recruits for the South Lebanon Army are expected to control the
Israel-Lebanon border region after Israel fully withdraws from

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The Israel
Defense Force has already begun
the second stage of its withdrawal
from south Lebanon, which the
Cabinet decided Sunday was to
commence immediately. Military
sources said that non-operational
equipment and supplies are al-
ready on the move. But an IDF
spokesman denied Beirut reports
that the departure of Israeli
troops from the Bekaa Valley in
the eastern sector of south Leba-
non has been speeded up.
The speed with which supplies
and equipment can be moved de-
pends in large measure on
weather conditions, the sources
said. The mountainous areas of
south Lebanon are buried in snow
and temperatures are frigid.
The Beirut reports said the
Lebanese regular army is stand-
ing by to occupy the areas vacated
by the IDF. According to Beirut,
some villages and hilltop posi-
tions have already changed
hands. Lebanese sources and the
United Nations Interim Force in
Lebanon (UNIFIL) said the IDF is
continuing its "iron fist" searches
of Shiite Moslem villages in south
Lebanon, believed to be bases for
guerrilla attacks on Israeli units.
There were six attacks, but no in-
juries on Sunday.
The IDF searched Saalah vil-
lage east of Tyre on Tuesday,
shortly after a UNIFIL contin-
gent of Ghanaian troops were sent
there to investigate the death of a
man under suspicious circum-
Meanwhile, the explosion that
wrecked a mosque in Maareke vil-
lage, killing at least 12 persons,
continued to generate friction be-
tween Israel and the Shiite popu-
lation. The Lebanese blame the
Israelis for the blast because an
IDF unit searched the village two
days earlier for weapons and ter-
rorists. The IDF spokesmen deny
any Israeli involvement. Among
the dead were several leaders of
Amal, the Shiite militia, who had
been in scrapes with the IDF.

One of them, Mohammed Saad,
is said to have planned the bomb-
ing that destroyed an IDF head-
quarters building in Tyre in No-
vember 1982, in which 75 people
including 43 Israelis were killed.
Another was Hallil Jeradi, an
Amal spokesman who boasted
earlier this week that he had
eluded the IDF's search of
Maareke. He threatened that
Shiite forces would attack Israelis
inside Israel.
Dr. Yossi Olmert of Tel Aviv
University's Dayan Center for
Middle East Studies, an expert on
the Shiites, said it would have
been "absurd" for the IDF to bomb
the mosque because it would only
intensify local hostility toward Is-
raelis. Security sources suggested
that the bombing could have been
an accident-premature detona-
tion of an explosive device being
prepared for use elsewhere. Uri
Lubrani, coordinator of Israeli af-
fairs in Lebanon, thought it was
the result of a feud between rival
Shiite factions.
Last week, Lebanon called on
the United Nations Security
Council to sanction Israel for its
actions in south Lebanon, and the
U.S. threatened to veto any anti-
Israel resolution. UN Secretary
General Perez de Cuellar said
that the role of UNIFIL troops in
south Lebanon was being
threatened by the assaults by ter-
rorists on Israeli troops.

Defense Fund

Jerusalem (JTA) — Two Knes-
set members returned from the
U.S. this week claiming to have
raised $70,000 from American
Jews for the legal defense of 20
alleged members of a Jewish ter-
rorist underground.
Yuval Neeman, leader of the
ultra-nationalist Tehiya Party,
and Meir Cohen-Avidov of Likud
said the money was raised during
five days of meetings in New York
and Miami homes and

These are some of the treasures of the Jewish families of Central Europe.
As Hitler was methodically exterminating their Jewish owners—and millions of
. other Europeans of all faiths—he was just as methodically collecting in Prague
all the Jewish art and sacred objects he could gather from Bohemia and
Moravia, today's Czechoslovakia. He wanted to show the collection in a
proposed "museum of an extinct people." Rescued from the Nazis at the end
of the war, this collection can now be seen for the first time in the United States,
in an exhibition titled "The Precious Legacy: Judaic Treasures from the
Czechoslovak State Collections."
It dramatizes art and history, tragedy and transcendence. And the
treasures have become what their owners wanted them to be: links in a
chain of continuity, beauty and faith. So long as we treasure these things,
• the people who loved them can never be extinct.
