Shcharansky
Apologizes
For Naivete

Jerusalem (JTA) — Natan
Shcharansky issued a public
apology last week for meeting
with pro-PLO Palestinians in
East Jerusalem. "I learned
that the delegation that met
with me was identified with
the PLO only after our
meeting. Had I known this
fact in advance, the meeting
never would have taken
place," Shcharansky said.
Shcharansky's statement, a
fierce attack on the PLO and
avowal of confidence in the
government's tactic of fight-
ing it, was issued after the
Soviet Jewry activist came
under fire from Orthodox and
rightwing circles for meeting
the Palestinians.

The group he met with is
seeking to block a deporta-
tion order, against East
Jerusalem editor Akhram
Haniye, whom the authorities
accuse of PLO activity„in the
administered territories
though not of direct involve-
ment in terrorist acts.

The most prominent
among them is Feisal Hus-
seini, a leading East Jeru-
salem intellectual sympa-
thetic to the PLO. Husseini
said that Shcharansky made
his statement under heavy
pressure form rightwing
Israelis.

Shcharansky said, "The
people of Israel are waging a
war of self-defense against
the PLO, a criminal terror
organization whose goal is
the denial of the legitimate
rights of the Jewish people to
their homeland, and ultimate-
ly the destruction of the State
of Israel. Both the aims and
the barbarous methods of
this organization of cut-
throats violate every human
standard.

"The PLO and those who
support it place themselves
beyond the pale of civilized
society. I learned that the
delegation that met with me
was identified with the PLO
only after our meeting. Had
I known this fact in advance,
the meeting would never have
taken place.
"...The blood of my brothers
is on their hands...I have full
confidence that the govern-
ment and security forces of
Israel are waging an unrelent-
ing battle for our protection...
The pursuit of this goal in ac-
cordance with the lasws of
the state of Israel and subject
to the judicial scrutity of the
Israeli supreme court is in no
way a violation of human
rights..."
Haniye has appealed to the
Supreme Court against his
deportation. The order will
not be implemented until the
high court rules on the
appeal. , ,
