Israeli judge to probe massacre

JERUSALEM (AP)- Prime Minister Menachem
Begin's government, under intense pressure for an
inquiry into the Beirut massacre, asked the Israeli
Whief justice yesterday to investigate the killings. But
the judge delayed accepting the job.
Begin's critics dismissed the proposal because it
does not provide for a fully empowered judicial
commission of inquiry.
OPPOSITION Labor Party leader Shimon Peres
said such a commission would be the only way for
"the whole truth to be revealed to the end." He said
that under Begin's proposal, Kahan would not have
subpoena powers and witnesses would not be liable to
penalty for perjury. The plan is merely "something
to ease the tension .. . but it won't help," Peres said.
The chief justice, Yitzhak Kahan, cannot respond
to the government request immediately because the
Supreme Court is considering two private petitions on

whether to set up a full judicial inquiry, Justice
Ministry spokesman Yitzhak Feinberg said.
Israeli newspapers, meanwhile, reported Israel's
senior military command knew of the Lebanese
Christian massacre of civilians at two Beirut refugee
camps the day it began, not the day after, as reported
by Israeli Defense Minister Ariel Sharon.
IN BEIRUT, relief workers Friday reported un-
covering a mass grave with 19 bodies near one of the
Palestinian camps, raising the confirmed death toll
in last week's slaughter to 317.
Since the massacre came to light last weekend,
Begin has been buffeted by a storm of troubles-
protests by both Jews and Israeli Arabs, resignations
by some high officials, and strife within his governing
The pressure mounted after Sharon told

Parliament on Wednesday that the Israelis had
helped Lebanese Christian Phalangist militiamen
plan an assault on the camps. He said the action was
aimed at Palestinian Liberation Organization
guerrillas and that Israel had not imagined a
massacre would result.
Israelis staged new protest demonstrations yester-
day. At Tel Aviv's Dizengoff Circle, more than 1,000
rallied to hear poetry and songs from a dozen top en-
tertainers. Some protesters covered themselves with
red paint and lay on the ground to represent
massacre victims.
"We demand an investigation to the bottom of
this," said movie actress Gila Almagor.
Israel's state radio said several Cabinet ministers,
whom it did not identify, intended to renew their
demand for a full judicial inquiry when the Cabinet
met again on Tuesday.

three nations were involved in a similar
peacekeeping mission before the
assassination of Lebanese President-
elect Beshir Gemayel Sept. 14.
The 800 U.S. Marines, backed by
another 1,000 on ships anchored off the
Lebanese coast, are expected to arrive
tomorrow amid warnings by the State
Department that the new mission will
be more dangerous than the last.
The first of the Italian troops were
expected to arrive Saturday or Sunday..
Israeli troops slapped a curfew over
the heart of west Beirut yesterday after
a lone gunman cut down three Israeli
soldiers at an outdoor cafe in a blaze of
submachine gun fire.

Police said a gunman approached the
Israelis as they were having coffee at a
restaurant on Hamra Street, the main
commercial street of west Beirut, and
opened up with a Kalashnikov AK-47
assault rifle.
OneIsraeli officer was killed and the
two other soldiers were injured, one
seriously, the police said. The gunman
escaped on foot up a side street.
As dusk fell, state-run Beirut radio
announced Israeli troops were
patroling the area to enforce a strict
curfew through the night.
Israeli troops also fired flares over an
area south of the center between the
Corniche Mazraa and the Sabra and
Chatila refugee camps where there was
fighting Thursday night.

U.N. nuclear agency suspends Israel

(continued from Page 1)
Israel. The United States and other
Western industrial nations voted again-
st the motion.
THE RESOLUTION to expel Esrael
was defeated 43-27, four votes short of
the two-thirds majority required for a
suspension of membership.
After the credentials vote -which was
largely symbolic, since the current con-
ference was ending anyway - State
Department officials in Washington
denounced the move as "unjustifiable
and illegal.''

They said the United States would be
reassessing its participation in the
agency and the action "could have
ramifications for the whole United
Nations system."
Davis, deputy secretary of the U.S.
Energy Department, said "the degree
to which the IAEA has now becme
politicized, as evidenced by the
resolution just adopted, is completely
unacceptable to my government."
IN WASHINGTON, the State Depar-
tment issued a statement saying: "The
United States government believes that

great damage has been done to the in-
tegrity of the IAEA and the whole
United Nations system by the introduc-
tion of strictly political issues into a
credentials procedure."
The statement did not directly men-
tion the specific and long-term U.S.
U.S. supprt for the IAEA's system of in-
ternational safeguards intended to
prevent nuclear proliferation.
But it did state that "the government
of the United States will now reassess
its policy regarding participation in the
IAEA and its activities."

ANOTHER marcher, Liz Maszk-
zakiawicz, a recent graduate of the
University's School of Public Health,
said she was "outraged by the
massacre. I think there are horros
being committed against Jews and
against Palestinians. The previous
generation kept silent during the
Holocaust, she said. "I won't keep
quiet now."
The pro-Palestinian rally was not
ignored by the area's Jewish groups,
Before the rally, the Union of Students
for Israel passed out flyers sym-
pathizing with the Palestinians and
condemning the massacre but denoun-

"Everyone has a right to exist. No
one should kill anyone," Goldstein
stated, "Israel is just trying to exist, it
is very unfortunate that people ahve
taken one unfortunate incident and
blown it out of proportion."

Michael Brooks, director of
Michigan's Hillel Foundation, said he
was "proud of the fact that a lot of the
(international) protest is coming from
Israel. I don't recall similar protests in
Lebanon or Syria when children were
killed in Maalot or when buses full of
Israeli civilians were blown up."
Though no actual violence occured
during the protest, tempers almost
errupted when spectators yelled ob-
scenities at protesters after the march.
During the march, one of the protesters
produced a badge and identified him-
self as a representative of the
Washtenaw County Sheriff's Depar-
tment but, Deputy Sheriff Kirk Profit, a
department spokesman, said he was
acting without authority.

Koch loses in N. Y. governor primary

the mayor's narrow margin of victory
in New York City.
The mayor, who was re-elected with.
75 percent of the vote in 1981; got a bare
50 percent of the vote here in the gover-
nor's race.
Koch, who had not lost an election
since he was defeated in a state Assem-
bly bid 20 years ago, was rumored to
have had thoughts about a vice-
presidential bid in 1984-had he made it
to the governor's mansion in Albany.
KOCH REFUSED to speculate about
his future yesterday. "I'm the mayor
for the balance of three years and that's
enough," he said.
He offered his support to Cuomo,
whom he beat in the 1977 mayoral race,
and said he would now concentrate on
running the nation's largest city.
"I want to make it very clear," Koch
said. "I am not depressed." Cuomo
took 670,804 votes, or 53 percent, to

597,751, or 47 percent, for Koch. In the
Republican race, millionaire
businessman Lewis Lehrman swamped
former U.S. Attorney Paul Curran
nearly 4-1, 451,086 votes to 109,964.
IN OTHER statewide races, U.S. Sen.
Daniel Patrick Moynihan easily won
renomination and will be opposed by
Assemblywoman Florence Sullivan,
who won a three-way Republican
primary. Democrats nominated West-
chester County Executive Alfred
DelBello for lieutenant governor, but
left two men nearly tied in the race for
the nomination for comptroller.
Raymond Gallagher and James Tully
each had 35 percent of the vote in a
three-way race, but Gallagher was
ahead by about 8,000 votes and Tully
said he would abide by the official can-
City Council President Carol
Bellamy, who would have become
mayor if Koch became governor, also

reacted calmly to her indirect loss.
"I'm disappointed," she conceded.
"However, I think it's time to start run-
ning the city and stop crying over
spilled milk. As the pun goes, it only
makes it salty for the cat."
Bellamy was only one of almost a
dozen local politicians who had been
gearing up to run for mayor in a special
election next year on the assumption
Koch would leave office.
"There were at least 10 people I know
of who were very desirous of my
becoming governor so they could run
for mayor," Koch said. "Thank God I
still haye a job."
