Film star Elizabeth Taylor has begun a 10-day “peace tour” of Israel and Lebanon. While in Lebanon she will meet with Israeli soldiers and Lebanese residents. Miss Taylor called on Ofira Navon in Jerusalem Tuesday. After congratulating each other on their dresses, the two talked about a subject of interest to both — children affected by the stress of war. The film star later told reporters: “I care about people. I care about Israel, I care about peace.” Miss Taylor’s trip was arranged by Phil Blazer, publisher of the Los Angeles-based American-Jewish bi-weekly, Israel Today.
