NEW YORK (Feb. 8)
Leon Dulzin, chairman of the World Zionist Organization Executive, praised the recommendations made by the commission that investigated the massacre in Beirut.
“The report and the recommendations by the commission are an example of justice coming out of Jerusalem” Dulzin declared in a press conference at the Jewish Agency headquarters here today. “It shows the world that there is justice in Jerusalem and I hope that the government (of Prime Minister Menachem Begin) will carry out the recommendations.” Dulzin said that Defense Minister Ariel Sharon ought to follow the decision of the commission and resign. He said that he does not believe that Sharon’s resignation will have any effect on the ability of the Begin government to function properly. “Sharon has to step down now. This is the recommendation of the commission and, yes, I think he should resign,” Dulzin said.
