    Background: UNITED NATIONS

    The United States has joined in a unanimous United Nations Security Council resolution which condemned Israel's thrust into West Beirut and demanded its troops withdraw immediately. The vote, taken on September 17, marked one of the occasions in the history of the United Nations when the American delegation has supported a Security Council censure of Israel. The fifteen council members' approval of the resolution, sponsored by Jordan -- the only Arab member of the council -- asked Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar to report on Israel's reaction. The Resolution, number 520, responded to Lebanon's request that action be taken to stop Israel' military push into West Beirut following the assassination of President-elect Bashir Gemayel on September 14. Israel's permanent representative to the UN. Yehuda Blum, who was in attendance, withdrew from the session shortly before the evening meeting began. He had informed the President, Ambassador Masahiro Nisibori of Japan, that he could not take part in a council session on Rosh Hasnanah, the Jewish New Year, which began at sundown.
