Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 25-years on the job UN peacekeeping officers forgotten men By DAVID LANCASHIRE EL QANTARA, Occupied Sinai (AP) Binoculars to eyes, the suntanned United Na- tions major watches the mas- sive fortifications of the Suez Canal for action. In six months he has seen nothing. Almost 300 miles away on lire Israel-Syria ceasefire line, other UN officers huddle in an under- ground bunker as artillery shells explode nearby. These forgotten men of the peacekeeping business have been on the job 25 years. Despite a lull in the Middle East, life can be dangerous in the United Nations truce super- vision organization. Twenty-four members have been killed since it was set up in May, 1948, not counting the first UN mediator, Count Folks Bernaclotle of Swe- den, slain by Israeli teiTorists four months later. In nine observation posts along Israel's side of the ca- rt a after colors- unarmed UN officers from seven countries watch for viola- tions that could shatter the United Slates-sponsored cease- fire of 1970. Eight posls with alphabetical names line the Egyptian side. Irish Commandant Harry Crowley, 51, is oflicer in charge of 40 UN observers on Israel's side of the canal. He is a vet- eran of UN peacekeeping ef- forts in Cyprus and the Congo. G. H.

Another incident which drew blacker headlines did not in- volve the UN: The Libyan air- liner disaster in the Sinai Desert. The Boeing 727 crossed into Israeli air space southeast of Suez City, an area where there are no UN observation posts. The unarmed plane was shot down by Israeli interceptors 12 miles east of the canal. The TJN was not asked to in- vestigate the incident or to affix blame. Mai. Alois Einspinner in Aus- tria in six months at Post Or- ange has reported only the sounds of practice firing and the demolition of old landmines. "I read a book a says Capt. Bjorn Dablman of Swe- den. The observers, who live in trailers, spend their days cook- ing, cleaning, making radio rer ports, washing dishes, burning garbage, hauling water, fillinj sandbags, maintaining the elec- tric generators and the kero- sene heaters for hot showers.

Outside each trailer, in case >f shelling or bombs, is an un- derground concrete bunker equipped with a spare radio, reds, mosquito nets, stove, irst-aid kit and rations. Each post is marked with big black UN letters, floodlit at night lo warn off Egyptian en- Israeli fire. During the "war of attrition" before the 1970 cease- :ire, several UN positions were blown to pieces. "The canal may be quiet now, but our job is still worth says Einspinner. "The UN would not spend so much money keeping its here if we were not necessary." The operation cost about million last year. "We are an observation 'and reporting says Crowley at his headquarter a converted railway station in Uae Sinai Desert. "We are not peace en- forcers." The observers admit they miss a lot. Reports to the secretary-general are publisher as Security Council dacuments and distributed to UN mem. bcrs. CLAIM UN FAILED Whether the reports do an; good is a subject of argument Some Arabs and Israelis con- tend that the constant unrest in the Middle East shows the UN has failed. The mandate is to observe and maintain a ceasefire firs ordered by the Security Oounci in violated b, two wars and countless and to assist the Arabs and Is raelis in applying 24-year-olc armistice agreements, which Is rael now ignores. Some Israelis consider the ob- .ervers useless. Some even ar- gue that the UN helped start :ie 1967 war by withdrawing now-defunct UN Emergency rorce from Gaza and the Sinai 'hen Egypt's late President lamal Abdel Nasser told them o go home. But senior UN observer offi cials report that they are "the yes and ears" of the United Nations and "we exevcise a de- gree of moral suasion. Our iresence conslitutes a restrain ng influence." Israel's defence minister Moshe Dayan, has said: "I am not impressed wilh this in they call the ceasefire observers we were naive to agree to their placement." Israelis in general consider the UN, with its heavy Ministe Abba Ebart has called the worl >ody as impotent organization "which would reject the 10 com mandments by a majority Israel, consequently, refuse Lo let UN observers work on it side of the Labanese frontier and since 1967 has quit takin part in mixed armistice com mittee meetings with UN ob servers and the Arabs.
