"The danger of losing our support among moderate Cath- olics and Protestants in Ulster and finding ourselves isolated i in stating that there has not is at Its said a British been a greater danger of losing defence spokesman. "Until now, our main oper- ation has been against the IB A and their Boman Catholics. If we liave to face active Protestant hostility as well it will be like fight- ing on two fronts, very tough." Protestant militancy this week reached a new peak in Ulster, with hardliners accus- ing the army of murder and de- claring the British government and military forces their enemies.

The task of restocinE the arm5''s acceptability lies with the British government, pri- marily with William Whitelaw, the harried minister saddled with the job of searching for a peaceful solution to "Ulster's centuries-old conflict, But a spokesman for White- law said the main political dif- ficulty now is in trying to "idenlify the middle and find a body of moderate opinion which we can build upon." On the one hand, the minister stands condemned by hardline Protes tants for not succeeding in his efforts to eliminate the IRA. On the other, he is charged with discrimination by the Catholics for directing the attack against terrorism too much toward Catholic areas of Ulste.-. He is blamed by Prc'i slants for moving too quickly to re- lease Ihose interned without trial on suspicion of acts of ter- rorism. Catholics say he has not moved quickly enough, Meanwhile, groups on both sides have voiced opposition lo local government elections said loday. Tiie plan involved "more which hold.

Ileiitcr news agency, quoting Philippine military sources, said an American veteran of the Vietnam 'var was one'of the two foreigners involved in the plot and was arresled. Tatad told reporters that the top Filipino involved in the at- tempt on Marcos's lite was ar- rested by military intelligence agents bcroro he could leave Ihe country. He said Ihc identity of the plotters will be made public "in due time."
