NEW YORK (JTA)- Shocked by the attempted assassination last Thursday of Israel's Ambassador to Britain, Shlomo Argov, representatives of leading Jewish organizations rallied support behind Israel's military operation in south Lebanon designed to push Palestinian terrorist forces beyond artillery and rocket range of. Israel's northern settlements. ... the Israeli action is "a manifestation of the most basic responsibility a government has to fulfill—to protect the lives and security of its people." Maxwell Greenberg, national chairman of the Anti- Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, said the Israeli action is "a manifestation of the most basic responsibility a government has to fulfill—to protect the lives and security of its people." Greenberg called on the Reagan Administration to launch a worldwide "diplomatic offensive" with the "goal of quarantining the PLO, of busting it from international agencies .. . and of denying it financial and military support." I Henry Siegman, executive director of the American Jewish Congress, said that the Israeli action is solely designed to eliminate the PLO's military structure in Lebanon. "A truth we must all confront is that only when the PLO is no longer capable of backing its vehement opposition to the Camp David process with military power can the peace negotiations be expected to produce significant results," Sieg- French Catholic Weekly Found Guilty Of Anti-Jewish Attacks Soviet Advisors In Jordan TEL AVIV (JTA)—The United States has passed informal tion to Israel that "several score" Soviet advisors are presently operating in Jordan, according to Israeli military sources quoted by Israel Radio. The sources expressed hope that the Jordanians were fully awafe of the dangers arising from the presence of Soviet advisors on their soil. Their presence is believed to be connected with the ground-to-air missile systems King Hussein ordered from the Soviet Union two years ago. Western sources were quoted as saying the Jordanians intend to site the missiles along their border with Syria rather than on the border with Israel, PARIS (JTA)-The prestigious French Catholic wfiek- ly,. Temoignage Chretien, was found guilty by a criminal court here of inciting /racial hatred in an editorial attacking Israel as a "terrorist state" and raising the charge of deicide against Jews. Its editor, Georges Montaron, was fined 1500 Francs ($300) on grounds that the editorial overstepped the bounds of normal political commentary and contained material likely to arouse anti-Jewish feelings. • The nature of the editorial surprised many because ders, Shocked By , Back Israel man said. Rabbi Alexander Schindler, president of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, assailed the United Nations for its recent resolutions expressing concern over the territorial integrity of Lebanon. "Where was the UN when the terrorist PLO—banished from Jordan by King Hussein—moved into Lebanon in 1970 and set up a mini-government there without regard to the independence and sovereignty or territorial integrity of Lebanon?" Schindler asked. Urges Community To Respond Robert Loup, national chairman of the United Jewish Appeal, called on the American Jewish community to respond to the crisis in Israel by immediately launching an all out effort to complete the 1982 U J A/Community Campaign. "We must take all possible steps to increase the flow of cash to meet the basic human needs of the people of Israel and to do all we can to ensure the quality and continuity of life throughout this, crisis," Loup said. Temoignage Chretien, though pro-Palestinian in its views, reputedly represents "progressive liberal" elements in the French Catholic Church. French circles were also puzzled by an editorial in the Moroccan government controlled newspaper L'Opiruon, on May 30, which called the Holocaust a Zionist hoax and claimed that Israeli Premier Menachem Begin was more vicious than Hitler. Morocco traditionally has been moderate in the Middle East conflict. The French court acted against Temoignage Chre- (CONTINUED ON PAGE 15) "Just as other nations demonstrate their right to protect the safety of their citizens, the Israeli. ■. government has the right and obligation to protect its citizens..." Americans for a Safe Israel said that they "applaud" the decision by the Israeli government to "eliminate" the PLO in Lebanon. "Just as other nations demonstrate their right to protect the safety of their citizens, the Israeli government has the right and the obligation to protect its- citizens who find themselves under constant threat of missiles and artillery attack," the organization said. The statement Was signed by the organization's chairman, Herbert Zweibon, and director, Peter Goldman. Earlier, Jewish organization officials expressed their outrage at the assassination attempt on Argov and in various statements released throughout the weekend, blamed the Palestine Liberation Organization for the (CONTINUED ON PAGE 15) Community Reacts To Israeli Invasion "The security of the State of Israel can best be determined by Israelis." In what has been called the worst breakdown yet in the cease-fire negotiation last July by the United States and the United Nations, Israeli troops launched attacks into Lebanon against PLO strongholds. The hostilities were undertaken after Shlomo Argov, the Israeli ambassador to Great Britain, was shot and critically wounded by terrorists in London Thursday night. Five Arabs were arrested as suspects in the shooting, but the PLO has denied responsibility, Sunday night, the U.N. Security Council unanimously demanded that Israel withdraw its forces from Lebanon and asked both Israelis and the PLO to observe an earlier cease-fire call. U.S. presidential envoy, Philip Habib, arrived in Israel Sunday night on a peace mission, but Monday, an estimated 20,000 Israeli troops, backed by tanks, struck across southern and central Lebanon. Reaction in the Columbus Jewish community varied from expressions of concern to clear-cut enthusiastic support for the Israeli position. Charles Schiffman, Executive Director of the Columbus Jewish Federa- tion.jsummed up the general feeling by noting the failure oTffie United States' efforts, through Philip Habib, to bring peace to the area. "These efforts have been going on for a year, and we still can't get Syria or Lebanon to disarm," he said. "In fact, during that time they have built up their arms." He also noted numerous violations of the truce by the PLO, both in the Mid- East and around the world. "The security of the State of Israel can best be determined by Israelis," Schiffman stressed. "They are under the gun and we certainly can't second guess their security decisions," he concluded.
