United Nations (JTA) — The
United States last week vetoed
in the Security Council a
Lebanese-sponsored resolution
"deploring" Israel for "violence"
in south Lebanon and demand-
ing that Israel withdraw its
military forces "to the interna-
tionally recognized boundaries
of Lebanon."
Eleven members of the 15-
member council supported the
resolution while three countries,
Australia, Britain and Denmark
abstained. The U.S. was the
only country that opposed the
resolution. It traditionally vet-
oes anti-Israeli resolutions as
unbalanced and one-sided.
Meanwhile, not a single civi-
lian has been killed or injured
in northern Israel since the Is-
rael Defense Force withdrew
from Lebanon last June, De-
fense Minister Yitzhak Rabin.

Israel's New Lavie Fighter
May Never Get Off Ground

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israel's se-
cond generation jet fighter
plane, the Lavie, may never fly.
Although Israel Aircraft Indus-
tries (IAI), its manufacturer,
promises a prototype will be
ready for test flights by the end
of the year, the multi-billion
dollar project could be ground-
ed for budgetary reasons.
Hirsh Goodman, The 'Jeru-
salem Post's defense corres-
pondent, says opposition to the
Lavie is growing as politicians
and planners examine the Israel
Defense Force's proposed devel-
opment program for the period
While the Air Force must
keep pace with the rapidly grow-
ing air forces of the Arab con-
frontation states, it could be
better served by purchasing
sophisticated aircraft abroad at
less cost titan the home-built
Lavie. This is the option of
many senior Air Force officers.
IAI must sell at least 300
Lavies to the Air Force in order
to break even. But cuts in the
defense budget have reduced

Speaking to reporters on the
first anniversary of the
Cabinet's decision to pull the
IDF out of Lebanon, Rabin
noted that two Israeli soldiers

"That is a dear price to pay
but it cannot be compared to the
human and economic price paid
while we were deployed" in
Lebanon, Rabin said. He said Is-
rael's position toward Lebanon
is "live and let live" but in no
case will Israel tolerate terrorist
attacks across the Lebanese
An explosion heard in several
northern border villages last
week was apparently a
Katyusha rocket that was aimed
at Israel territory, but fell short
in the security zone. Bad
weather prevented the IDF from
searching the area to determine
where the rocket exploded.

prospects for orders anywhere
near that number. The Lavie
still has powerful supporters,
notably Defense Minister Yitz-
hak Rabin, Chief of Staff .Gen.
Moshe Levy and Likud Minister
Moshe Arens. The latter, an
aeronautical engineer by train-
ing, was one of the originators
of the Lavie project. The plane
is supposed to replace Israel's
first generation jet fighter, the
Kfir, built in the seventies.

Jewish Envoys
In Guatemala

New York — An American
Jewish Committee delegation
attending the inauguration of
the first democratically-elected

nomic stability for the key Cen-
tral American nation and its
800 Jews.
