Israel Tells U.N.
PLO Still Same

Geneva (JTA) — An unbridl-
ed verbal assault on Israel by
the Palestine Liberation
Organization and its Arab
allies was cited by the Israeli
delegate to the U.N. Human
Rights Commission here as
proof that the PLO's goal is
still the destruction of Israel.
There should be no illusions
that PLO chief Yassir Arafat
and his cohorts have changed
their attitude and really
desire peace, the Israeli
delegate, Rafael Walden, said.
The commission's annual
conference opened last week
and will end next month. The
first agenda item is "The
Violation of Human Rights in
the Occupied Arab terri-
"How can anyone listening
to the speeches delivered here
by the Arabs harbor the illu-
sion that they did a complete
about-face and abandoned
terrorism and the aim of the
destruction of Israel?"
Walden asked.
Walden claimed that the
PLO and the Shiite militia,
Amal, have agreed to con-
tinue anti-Israel operations
from Lebanese soil.
The Israeli delegate also
deplored what he called the
one- sidedness of Amnesty In-
Its representative, Ingrid
Kircher, gave no credence to
the extreme Arab charges
when she spoke last week.
But she repeatedly express-
ed concern about a broad
range of human rights viola-
tions attributed to the Israelis.
