London Times Says Two
Captured Israelis Dead

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Israel has
declined to comment on a
British press report that two
Israel Defense Force soldiers
taken prisoner by Hezbollah
three years ago died shortly
after their capture.
The Sunday Times of Lon-
don said Sheik Abdul Karim
Obeid, the Hezbollah guer-
rilla leader abducted by
Israeli commandos from his
_home in Lebanon on quly 28,
told his interrogators the
soldiers were dead.
Israel has offered to ex-
change Obeid for Israeli
soldiers and Western
hostages held captive by the
pro-Iranian Hezbollah or by
other groups in Lebanon.
But according to the Times,
which quoted sources in
Jerusalem, Obeid said one of
the Israeli soldiers died of
wounds minutes after being
ambushed and the other died
"hours. later."
Brig. Gen. Ephraim Lapid,
a military spokesman, said it
was IDF policy not to react to
or comment on press reports.
Concerning the two
soldiers, Yosef Fink and
Rahamim Alsheich, believed
held by Hezbollah, Lapid
said, "We regard them as
alive until proven otherwise."
Interviewed on the Army

Radio Station Sunday morn-
ing, Lapid observed that the
issue of prisoners and
missing-in-action is a very
sensitive one for Israelis and
the IDF.
"We occasionally hear
various reports, some of
which are part of a
psychological war against us.
We consider the prisoners and
MIAs to be alive until it is
authoritatively proven other-
wise," Lapid said.
He added, "Authoritatively
does not mean through
British or any other media,
but through the Red Cross."
Lapid said he did not think
publication of the report
would sabotage negotiations
for the release of hostages.
But according to the Times,
Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir tried to conceal the
deaths of the two Israeli
soldiers from the Bush ad-
ministration "for fear that
Washington will put heavy
pressure on him to free Obeid
in exchange for American
and other Western hostages
in Beirut."
Obeid's release in return for
Western hostages, without ef-
fecting the release of Israeli
captives, would be severely
embarrassing for Shamir, the
Times said.

Na'amat Stages
Abortion Rights Rally

Chicago (JTA) — More than
500 women from 25 states,
delegates to NA'AMAT USA's
31st biennial convention,
staged a rally here supporting
women's access to safe and
legal abortions.
The gathering in downtown
Grant Park was a demonstra-
tion in support of women
"who care about freedom of
choice and freedom of cons-
cience for all women," said
Gloria Elbling, national presi-
dent of the women's Labor
Zionist organization.
"Reproductive choice must
be recognized as a matter of
individual conscience," Elbl-
ing told the crowd. "Once
again, women are being used
as political pawns and the
worst victim, as always, will
be precisely those women who
have the fewest options: the
very young and the very
poor."
Na'amat also resolved to
embark on a program to
monitor women's rights
legislation through its state
watch committees; to
mobilize support for legisla-

tion upholding a women's
right to choose an abortion;
and to convey to their respec-
tive state and federal
representatives their "con-
cern for preserving the con-
stitutionally protected rights
of all women."

Official Says
It Was Higgins

Washington (JTA) — Col.
William Higgins was likely
the person shown being hang-
ed in a videotape released last
week by a Shi'ite • group in
Lebanon, the FBI announced.
The Washington Post on
Tuesday quoted a senior ad-
ministration official as saying
that there is "strong cir-
cumstantial evidence". that
Higgins had been killed long
before the videotape was
released July 31.
The official said the "work-
ing assumption" is that he
was killed sometime after the
shooting down of an Iranian
airliner over the Persian Gulf
in July 1988.
