Israel's Lebanon-war tax set at more than $1 billion

Israeli Finance Minister Yoram Aridor says Israelis will have to pay more than a $1 billion in extra taxes for the Lebanese invasion, which he claims prevented another surprise attack against Israel.

Speaking to US Jewish leaders, Mr. Aridor pulled out and quoted captured Palestine Liberation Organization documents that he said proved the PLO was planning suprise war on Israel similar to the 1973 Yom Kippur conflict and Pearl Harbor. One of the captured PLO documents he read, dated July 1981, described plans to attack three Israeli towns. It also detailed the weapons to be used, but gave no date for the attack.
