tions, is based on the Israeli assessment

Militia Leader
Shuns Lawyer

Drug Ring

Jerusalem/JTA — Palestinian militia
leader Marwan Barghouti plans to
represent himself when his trial starts
in an Israeli court.
Barghouti's lawyer, Jawad Boulous,
said Barghouti would reiterate his
argument that Israel has no right to
try him and that he is therefore
refusing legal counsel, Israel Radio
reported.
Barghouti who in recent Palestinian
polls ranked second in popularity
only to Palestinian Authority leader
Yasser Arafat was charged last month
with orchestrating terror attacks that
killed scores of Israelis. Israeli officials
hope the trial will prove that mem-
bers of the Palestinian leadership have
been directly involved in terrorism
against Israel.

Backed Terrorists

New York/JTA — An illegal drug
operation was funneling profits to
Middle East terror groups, U.S. offi-

The ring, which was run by men of
