Lebanon War Disclosure
Implicates Ariel. Sharon

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Demands for
an official inquiry into the Leba-
non war mounted over the
weekend following U.S. Ambas-
sador Samuel Lewis' assertion
that Ariel Sharon disclosed plans
for the Israel Defense Force to in-
vade Lebanon to special U.S.
Middle East envoy Philip Habib
on Dec. 4, 1981 when Sharon was
Defense Minister. The invasion
occurred six months later, at the
beginning of June 1982.
Sharon, now Minister of Com-
merce and Industry, denounced
Lewis' version of the meeting with
Habib as "a gross lie." But the
State Department, after first re-
fusing to comment, confirmed on
Friday that the Lewis' account
was accurate.
The Davar report, if true, con-
firms the charges by many in Is-
rael and the U.S. that Sharon was
planning the large-scale invasion
of Lebanon at a time the PLO was
in fact abiding by the cease-fire.
It also suggests that the main
target of the invasion was the
Palestinian population on the
West Bank which would have
been rendered docile as an indi-
rect result of the destruction of the
PLO in Lebanon. Sharon's plans
also called for handing over
100,000 Palestinians refugees in
Lebanon to the Lebanese
authorities, according to the
Davar document.
The invasion of Lebanon,
launched by the IDF on June 6,
1982, was officially called "Opera-
tion Peace for Galilee".
The Likud-led government - of
Premier Menachem Begin in-
sisted that its objectives were
limited to driving the PLO beyond
a 25-mile zone in south Lebanon,
out of rocket and artillery range of
Israeli border towns.
The Lebanon war cost Israel
650 dead and some 4,000 wounded
from its outset until recent weeks.
The IDF is now in the final state of
withdrawing entirely from
Lebanese soil and is expected to be
back behind the international
border early next month. As the
withdawal progressed, demands
rose from many quarters for an
inquire into the planning and
conduct of the war and these cen-
tered on Sharon who played the
key role.
But Premier Shimon Peres has
publicly opposed an inquiry which
would almost certainly bring
down the shaky Labor-Likud gov-
ernment, a partnership of con-
venience established last Sep-
tember to deal with the nation's
ongoing economic crisis.

Military sources said the up-
surge in attacks on the Israel De-
fense Force and its allied South
Lebanon Army (SLA) came from
rival guerrilla and terrorist
groups eager to outdo each other.
The sources warned that the at-
tacks might escalate as the Israeli
presence in South Lebanon nears
an end. The IDF is expected to be

Ariel Sharon

completely out of Lebanese terri-
tory by the beginning of next
month.
In Sunday's incidents, four
soldiers were wounded when a
roadside explosive detonated as
their patrol was passing near
Majdel Selim village, about eight
kilometers inside Lebanon oppo-
site the Israeli border town of
Manera. An IDF unit spotted two
terrorists near the Akaya bridge
over the Litani River further to
the north and pursued them to
Shakra village where the ter-
rorists opened fire. One Israel
soldier was wounded before both
terrorists were killed.

UNESCO
Scores Israel

Paris (JTA) — The United
Nations Educational, Scientific
and Cultural Organization
(UNESCO) executive committee
adopted a resolution condemn-
ing Israel for allegedly "hamper-
ing educational and cultural in-
stitutions in the occupied ter-
ritories" and called on the UN-
ESCO Director General to begin
a study of Israeli educational
and cultural policies.
The first resolution, sponsored
by a group of 17 Third World
countries, deplored "the practice
of repression and obstruction of
educational and cultural institu-
tions in Palestinian and other
Arab occupied territories." It
urged Israel "to annul all meas-
ures taken and all acts commit-
ted against educational and cul-
tural institutions."
The second resolution asked
the international community do
donate funds "to safeguard the
Arab spiritual heritage" in
Jerusalem and praised the Di-
rector General for "maintaining
UNESCO's presence in the
occupied territories."
The resolution was adopted in
the absence of the United States
which withdrew from UNESCO
last December after charging
that the organization was mis-
managed, politically minded and
biased in favor of the Eastern
Bloc and Third World Nations.
Britain and Canada said they
opposed the two resolutions be-
cause they failed to take into
account the "real nature of the
problem."
