Call for Robert Bruce

July 1976
National Review;7/23/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 27, p773
The article reports on developments related to the civil war that broke out in Lebanon between the Christian Maronite minority and the leftist Moslem majority in 1976. A presidential election has been held but no new president because the incumbent president refused to resign. The proposal by France to send a peacekeeping force was rejected. The Syrian army invaded and attacked the Moslem leftists and their Palestinian allies. In response to the massing of Arab troops along it border, Israel warned of further trouble in the region.
