You should avoid foods high in

fatty, rich foods, you can do
yourself a big favor. You could
lower your blood cholesterol

Jerusalem (JTA) — One of
the most successful security
operations undertaken by
the Israel Defense Force in
Nablus has encouraged local
Palestinians to organize
against extremists who ter-
rorize or murder fellow
Arabs suspected of col-
laborating with the Israeli
authorities.
A month after the IDF
wiped out a gang called
Black Panthers, which
operated in the Nablus
casbah, and arrested every
member of a similar gang,
the Red Eagles, a Palesti-
nian counterforce has
emerged.
It calls itself the General
Security Service, and it has
served notice it will not
tolerate "holding suspects
for questioning" or exec-
uting them for alleged col-
laboration.
General Security Service
happens to be the name of
Israel's internal security
agency, known by the
acronym Shin Bet. Its adop-
tion by the Palestinians may
or may not have been ac-
cidental.
In any event, the group
marched through the narrow
alleys of the casbah last
week armed with a rifle and
three handguns.
Judging by their nation-
alist slogans and the colors
of the kaffiyehs they wear
around their heads, the mar-
chers identify with Al Fatah,
the largest and most
moderate branch of the
Palestine Liberation

Organization.
Fatah, which is headed by
Yassir Arafat, has spoken
out several times in the past
against the execution of
suspected collaborators.
Executions and torture
had become almost daily
occurrences before the IDF
operation. Since then,
however, only one local man,
Sa'adi Bakri, has been
murdered. But 15 people
were kidnapped and tor-
tured, though eventually
released.
The march through the
casbah was seen as an at-
tempt by PLO moderates to
regain control from the
violence-prone dissidents. So
were the leaflets circulated
in the West Bank this week,
which urged students to at-
tend classes and refrain from
staging demonstrations in-
side the school premises.
"The Palestinian state
needs educated people," the
leaflets said.
Hadashot reported that
Egypt was expected to de-
mand that Arafat, who is
now visiting Cairo, declare a
three-month moratorium on
the assassination of
suspected collaborators.
But even if Arafat loyalists
obey such an order, it is
hardly likely to be heeded by
Hamas, the Islamic fun-
damentalist organization,
which is the chief r _ ival of the
PLO.
Hamas has been responsi-
ble for a number of political
assassinations, mainly in
the Gaza Strip.

Intifada Dilemma
For Arab Christians

Jerusalem (JPFS) — The
situation of Arab Christians
is becoming more difficult
because of the growing
dominance of Moslem fun-
damentalists in the intifada,
according to Msgr. Richard
Mathes, head of the Notre
Dame monastery in
Jerusalem.
The Arab Christian truly
loves his identity,
peoplehood and nationality
and does not want to be
deprived of them, Mathes
said. But to hold on to those
values is more difficult for a
Christian than for a Moslem,
because Arab society is iden-
tified as being Islamic.
The Christian's problem
becomes even more complex
when he is charged with
belonging to an "outside"
church whose views are in-

compatible with the Arab
position. Mathes cited the
example of Lebanon, where
Arab nationalism is seen as
inconsistent with Christian
identity.
In addition, Christian
Arabs have a more Western
outlook than their Moslem
counterparts, largely as a
result of education, he said.
Many of the Christians were
taught by French, Italian,
British and American
teachers and accordingly
reflect their views.
Although there were ex-
ceptions in the Palestinian
movement, such as George
Habash, head of the Popular
Front for the Liberation of
Palestine, the Christians
have by and large tended to
adopt a more non-violent
stance in the intifada.
