U.S. to Israel:

Leave Lebanon

(Continued from Page 1)
in which the Israelis grabbed a swath of
Lebanese territoty along the entire 49-
mile border. He said more bloodshed
"will not create security and solving
the Palestinian problem is the correct
approach for establishment of peace in
our area.'
Sadat told visiting African
parliamentary leaders in Cairo that he
will convene his national security coun-
cil to decide the next step, but he said he
would continue to search for a peaceful
solution.
"WE THOUGHT WE HAD reached
the point when we were about to solve
the whole problem peacefully and then

Israel resorts to the use of force again,"
he said in his first public comment on
the raid.
Begin has said the troops will remain
in Lebanon until an agreement can be
reached to halt Palestinian attacks
from the area.
Buth Palestine Liberation
Organization leader Yasser Arafat said
in a speech to Moslem leaders in Beirut
he would prevent any agreement to
create a guerrilla-free zone. "We shall
never allow such agreements and shall
never submit to them," he said.
ARAFAT ACCUSED THE United
.States of plotting with Israel to create a
separate state in southern Lebanon to

be ruled by a right-wing Christian
government.
He said the Israeli military action
was "part of this plot" which he said
was hatched by President Carter and
begin.
"This plot is a link in the chain of an
even wider American-Israeli con-
spiracy aimed at liquidating the
Palestinians to impose a Middle East
peace settlement in Israel's favor,"
Arafat said.
PALESTINIAN artillery shells thud-
ded into the hills around the southeast
Lebanese villages of Kleia and Mar-
jayoun in an apparent effort to harass

the Israeli entrenchment operation.
The Israeli military command has
listed 11 soldiers killed and 57 wounded
and said about 100 guerrillas were
killed and hundreds more wounded.
The PLO's casualty report issued in
Beirut said 79aofdits fighters were killed
or wounded and claimed the Israelis
lost 350 killed or wounded.
The PLO also claims its forces have
knocked out 70 to 80 Israeli tanks, ar-
mored personnel carriers and other
military vehicles.
LEBANESE PRIME Minister Selim
el Hoss told reporters after a Security
Council to "take the necessary
measures that would guarantee a
cessation of the aggression and ensure
withdrawal of Israili forces."
Israelis rejoiced in the streets
yesterday as did Christiantvillagersin
the captured zone. Christians in the
area have been fighting the
Palestinians and leftist Moslems with
Israeli help for the past two years.
Israeli soldiers reported being
welcomed in the Christian hamlets by
men and women blowing kisses. The
reception in the Moslem villages was
sullen, they said.

African Liberation committee (SALC),
and the Revolutionary Communist
Youth Brigade (RCYB), all who have
asked the University to cut its ties with
South Africa.
When not chanting, the crowd
listened to local musician Fred Small
sing protest songs and then to represen-
tatives of the groups in the WCCAA in-
cluding Hank Bryant, ASA president
Riase Jakpor and Diane Clark of the
RCYB.
"The issue is apartheid, the purpose
(of the demonstration) is divestiture,
the method is peaceful demonstration,"
said Bryant, the first speaker.
HE SAID THE protest would send "a
very distinct message" to the Regents
and the world: "No longer will
American money prop up theapartheid
regime of South Africa."
Clark-said, "We're here to ask not to
beg." Echoing the sentiments of
Bryant, she told the Regents, "D'ivest
your investments right now and we're
going to keep on (protesting) until you
do."
AT 1 P.M., after listening to Andrew
Patton of the Black Student Movement
and Bruce Richards of the Socialist
Party, most of the crowd moved to the
Michigan Union where the Regents held
their public discussion on the South
African Investment issue.
For another half-hour the crowd of
protesters stayed outside the Union
singing: "No matter how hard you try
you can't stop us now." Just before
moving inside the building and as
several regents passed by the group,
Bryant said, "We are here to let the
Regents know the only moral course is
divestiture."
Meanwhile, Richard Kennedy,
University vice-president for state
relations, said of the demonstrations-
"I'm not surprised." Regent Sarah
Power" said it's very important the
meeting proceed in an orderly fashion
and that all views are heard."
" AT 1:30 P.M., just as the Regents set-
tIed into position for the expectedly long
public hearing on the South African
issue, the protesters marched into the
second floor ballroom chanting: "U of
M, U.S.A. out of South Africa right
away."
In the face of all the protest the
Regents remained calm and allowed
everyone the opportunity to speak
whether they had been scheduled or
not.
But when it became apparent that the
Regents would not vote to divest, a

0

wave of disappointment enveloped the
room. The crowd demonstrated their
dissatisfaction by heckling.
Towards the end of discussion of the
resolution proposed by Regent Thomas
Roach, a solitary figure moved from
the crowd to the Regents' table, where

rprotest
he picked up a pitcher and poured a
glass of water.
Standing in front of Regent Robert
Nederlander and University President
Robben Fleming the young man finished
his drink, looked at all the Regents and
said: "You're despicable things, you
really are."
