I ARKE TPLACE

T

he Hezbollah this
week threatened to
kill one of its three
Israeli captives unless Sheik
Obeid was immediately
released. But the truth is as
macabre and sickening as the
"hanging" of the long dead
U.S. Marine, Lt. Col. William
Higgins. It is believed that at
least one of the three Israeli
soldiers in Hezbollah's hands
is dead and has been for many
months.
Up until now, no Israeli of-
ficial would comment on this
report, in order to protect the
feelings of the three families
involved. But Hezbollah toys
with human life and is play-
ing the same kind of
transparent trick it did with
Col. Higgins. Any day now,
we may be treated to another
seedy snuff film — authentic
about the sacrificial death,
but nefarious about when and
how it occurred.
Lova Eliav would neither
confirm nor deny the report
that one of the three Israelis
died of his wounds or was kill-
ed long ago. Eliav, with the
late Shmuel 'Pamir, conducted
the negotiations with both
the Palestine Liberation
Organization and Ahmed
Jibril's Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine-
General Command. "Begin
asked me, because of my con-
tacts with the PLO?' said the
leftist MK, whose
humanitarian efforts have
won him the respect of people
across the political spectrum.
But there was also a great
deal of criticism over the two
previous exchanges. In 1982,
when Moshe Arens was
defense minister, 4,500
Palestinian, Syrian and
Lebanese prisoners kept at
Israel's Ansar camp in
southern Lebanon and 100
terrorists in Israel — in-
cluding 50 serving life
sentencees for murder — were
exchanged for six Israeli cap-
tives. In 1985, 1,150 Palesti-
nians, including Jibril's cap-
tured terror legions, were
freed in exchange for three
Israeli soldiers. Yitzhak
Rabin was defense minister
then as now. Many of these
trained terrorists were allow-
ed to return to their homes in
the territories as part of the
deal, and some of them played
a major role in turning the
spontaneous intifada into an
organized uprising. Eliav
doesn't see it that way. "It's
demagoguery to say that. The
Palestinians rose up because
they have been enslaved for

1?-

Special to The Jewish News

20 years?' The Arabs, he says,
know exactly how valuable
their Israeli captives are, that
the Jewish religion and the
Israeli army tradition re-
quires the Jews to pay
whatever price is necessary to
redeem their captives. "It is
in the Talmud that we should
go sell Torahs in the
marketplace if it is necessary
to get the money to pay ran-
som." He suggests that when
the next deal is arranged, the
matter be brought to the
Knesset for a vote, so that
there will not be any
recriminations. "The families
of the two or three Israeli
POWs should sit in the
gallery. I guarantee the vote
will be something like 119-1
— only a complete demagogue
like Geula Cohen would vote
against the mitzvah of
pidiyon ha'shevuim (redemp-
tion of prisoners)."
One Israeli bereaved
parent, Eliezer Whartman, a
journalist whose son was kill-
ed in a firelight with ter-
rorists in South Lebanon in
1975, says it would be a great
tragedy if Israel again gave in
to blackmail and released
masses of terrorists. "We have
to explain to the families the
cost of yielding to the ter-
rorists' demands. It means
that far more soldiers will die,
and far more civilians if these
professional killers are
unleashed once again."
He believes that only Obeid
and his two assistants should
be traded for the same
number of Israeli. "Of course
we have to bring our boys
back; we have to do it, but in
such a way that the terrorists
don't appear as victors," he
said. The Hezbollah is
demanding the release of
thousands of terrorists:
Shi'ites, PLO, Islamic Jihad,
Hamas, the rejectionists, all
the members of that big hap-
py family. Near the top of
their list are the Bus 405 at-
tacker, responsible for killing
16 Jews last month, and
another Moslem fanatic who
stabbed to death two elderly
lawyers (one of them was 90)
at a Jerusalem bus stop in -
May. Many Israelis want the
death penalty for such men,
who otherwise will be walk-
ing free after a few months of
playing ping-pong in an
Israeli prison.
Obeid is a big fish, and he
is singing away in the villa
north of Tel Aviv where army
intelligence is interrogating
him. The Israeli commandoes
also brought back the holy
man's files, and more raids on
the mafia clans can be
expected.
