Workers Protest
Lavi Decision

Jerusalem (JTA) — Some
15,000 workers of the Israel
Aviation Industry (IAI) came
to Jerusalem last Sunday in
a desperate effort to reverse
the government decision to
scrap the Lavi fighter. But,
contrary to previous demon-
stration, this one passed
without any confrontation
with the large forces of police
which were at hand near the
Prime Minister's office. The
weekly Cabinet session pro-
ceeded undisturbed.
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin told the Cabinet that
the number of Lavi workers
who would be laid off would
reach 3,000, but, he said,
many could be employed by
the army and by the Israel
Electric Company.
In other developments, the
Cabinet's decision to cancel
the construction of the Lavi
closely reflected Israeli public
opinion, according to the
Dahaf poll published in
Yediot Achronot. Forty-nine
percent of 695 people polled
supported the decision, 45
percent disagreed and six per-
cent had no opinion.
From Washington, D.C.,
Secretary of State George
Shultz sent a message to
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir reaffirming
American commitment to
support Israel's economy and
security. Shultz told Shamir
that he understood the dif-
ficulty of the decision to scrap
the Lavi, but added that
future cooperation from now
on would strengthen both

Waldheim Query
Gets Underway

Vienna (JTA) — An interna-
tional commission charged
with sorting out the facts of
Austrian President Kurt
Waldheim's militay service
during World War II com-
menced its work last week
behind closed doors.
The commission will deal
with the question of whether
Waldheim was directly in-
volved in war crimes, what
did he know about operations
and was he personally able to
influence them.
The commission is headed
by Swiss military historian
Hans Rudolf Kurz and in-
cludes an Israeli military
historian from Tel Aviv
University, Yehuda Wallach;
a former U.S. General, James
Collins; the director of the In-
stitute for Military History at
the University of Freiburg in

West Germany, Manfred
Messerschmidt, a former pro-
fessor at the Surrey Univeris-
ty in Britain, Gerald Flem-
ing; and a professor at the
Belgian Center for Research
on the History of the Second
World War, Jean

Israel Attacks
Terrorist Bases

Jerusalem (JTA) — The
Israel Air Force attack on
Palestinian terrorist bases
near Sidon in south Lebanon
last week exacted heavy
casualties because it was the
first time since the Lebanon
war that the Air Force struck
on a Saturday and took the
enemy by complete surprise,
military analysts here said.
According to reports from
Lebanon, 49 were killed and
60 were wounded when the
second wave of planes hit
their targets as the terrorists
were trying to extricate the
wounded in the first strike an
hour earlier.
Brig. Gen (Res.) Aharon
Lev-Ran said in an interview
that the strike was pre-
emptive rather than retali-
atory and therefore unex-
pected. An army spokesman
said that the terrorist bases
hit were the staging areas for
planned terrorist attacks on
Israel that were to be carried
out shortly.

U.N. Expected

To Open Files

United Nations — Secretary
General Javier Perez de
Cuellar is expected to open
U.N. files containing accusa-
tions about Nazi war crimes
to historians and researchers
at a meeting Sept. 22 and 23
with representatives of the 17
former member countries of
the War Crimes Commission,
according to diplomats and
U.N. officials.
Much of the material in the
files, collected at the end of
World War II, is in the form
of raw accusations. The
Nurenberg war crimes trials
of major Nazi figures relied on
its own research rather than
the U.N. files. (A file on
Austrian President Kurt
Waldheim was discovered in
the collection last year.)
The opening of the archive
would represent a diplomatic
victory for Israel which has
been presiding for freer ac-
cess. France and Poland are
the only former commission
members against opening the
