houses and to take shelter
on the slope of the hill. By
giving this humane warn-
ing our fighters threw
away the element of com-
plete surprise, and thus in-
creased their own risk in
the ensuing battle. A
substantial number of the
inhabitants obeyed the
warning and they were
unhurt. A few did not leave
their stone houses —
perhaps because of the
confusion.
The fire of the enemy was
murderous — to which the
number of our casualties
bears eloquent testimony.
Our men were compelled
to fight for every house; to
overcome the enemy they
used large numbers of
hand grenades. And the
civilians who had
disregarded our warnings
suffered inevitable
casualties.

The complete story and the
commentaries on the Dir
Yassin agony have already
filled many newspaper col-
umns, veritable volumes and

scores of speeches. Shipler's
account needs much
clarification.
Much has been written
about it in this column. More
may have to be added. Mere
mention and condemnation of
Jews and Israel is grossly un-
fair. Therefore the added
reference to it here.
Whatever may be said
about the many attacks on
Israel and the Jewish devo-
tion to the Jewish state, the
ultimate and inerasable is
the commitment never to
abandon our responsibilities.
Israel and the Zionist move-
ment have a long experience
in the battle for existence. We
keep rejecting the term "sur-
vival." "Existence" emphasiz-
ed is a fact of life for Jewry
and a page in world history
never to be tampered with.
Therefore, the ultimate in
testing the Shipler accounts
is to declare again and again
that the Israel "fact of life" is
the will and duty to live and
prosper dutifully. It em-
phasizes again and again the
Jewish responsibility: Never
Abandon Israel! ❑

Herzog Condemns
Vigilante Settlers

Jerusalem (JTA) — Presi-
dent Chaim Herzog express-
ed his strongest condemna-
tion ever of the vigilante tac-
tics used by Jewish settlers in
the West Bank last week,
warning that "no one is above
the law."
He spoke at the awards
ceremony of the Jerusalem
Prize for Torah Education in
the Diaspora, held at the
presidential residence.
Herzog was clearly
angered, not only by the
violent acts of the settlers
against the Palestinian
population in the ad-
ministered territories but
their frequent confrontations
with the Israel Defense Force.
The president observed that
the same army which
liberated the Jerusalem in
1967 has been verbally and
physically assaulted by "hot-
headed and inciteful Jews."
The soldiers who liberated
the Western Wall 22 years
ago represented diverse opi-
nions among the Israeli peo-
ple, some of which might be
considered "extreme and
traitorous" today, Herzog
said.
He warned that isolated
cases of violating the law
could become the norm. "No
one is above the law. No one
has the right to decide which
laws he will observe and

which he will ignore," the
president said.
In Washington on Tuesday,
the U.S. State Department
sounded a similar note.
"We condemn the vigilante
attacks," Deputy Spokesman
Richard Boucher said, adding,
"We note the Israeli govern-
ment's views that there could
be 'no justification for people
taking the law into their own
hands.'
"We certainly agree with
that," Boucher said. "We urge
all sides to refrain from ac-
tions that contribute to rais-
ing the level of violence and
hinder efforts to establish a
dialogue between Israelis and
Palestinians."

IDF Patrol Kills
Three Terrorists

Tel Aviv (JTA) — An Israel
Defense Force patrol killed
three heavily armed ter-
rorists attempting to in-
filtrate the south Lebanon
security zone last Tuesday.
There were no Israeli
casualties.
The clash was the third in
three days with terrorists at-
tempting to infiltrate into
Israel through the security
zone.
Six gunmen have been kill-
ed and two captured in the
three encounters.
