Lebanon Jews
Still Waiting

GEORGE E. GRUEN

Special to The Jewish News

New York — A poignant
public appeal for the release
of the body of Dr. Elie Hallak
was made by his anguished
widow, Rachel Hallak, and
their son Andre at an inter-
national conference in Paris
in May. Dr. Hallak was
known as "the doctor of the
poor" because he treated
without fee needy Lebanese
and Palestinian patients ir-
respective of party or creed.
He was kidnapped by the
Organization of the Oppress-
ed on Earth, a Lebanese
Shi'ite terrorist group, in
Beirut in March 1985. His ex-
ecution was announced on
Feb. 19, 1986, but his killers
have refused to release his
body.
New information on this
tragic case was provided by
Jean-Paul Kauffmann, the
French journalist, who was
one of the three French
hostages released by kidnap-
pers on May 4 as part of a
French-Iranian deal. Kauff-
man met Dr. Hallak when he
was brought in to treat
Michel Seurat, another
French hostage, who was dy-
ing of cancer.
Dr. Hallak had told Kauff-
man that he realized the
ominous significance that he
was the only hostage who was
not kept blindfolded
whenever their captors were
present. "I know that I will
never be released alive, since
I can identify the kidnap-
pers," he said. "They will kill
me simply because I am a
Jew." Nevertheless, Dr.
Hallak continued to serve all
who were ill, without regard
to his personal safety. These
included American as well as
French captives.
After her husband was kid-
napped, Mrs. Hallak return-
ed to Beirut from Paris, where
she had gone with her three
children to escape the chaos
in Lebanon. She spent 11
months in meetings with
Shi'ite leaders and the many
friends and former patients of
her husband in the hope of
securing his release. She
noted that she had treated
many Shi'ites during the
years she had worked as a
nurse at the American
University Hospital.
At first there were hopeful
signs that her efforts would
succeed. Dr. Hallak's kidnap-

Dr. George Gruen is director of
Middle East Affairs for the
American Jewish Committee.
