Bush: No Upgrade In
PLO Negotiations
WASHINGTON (JTA) The Bush administration is resisting
pressure to upgrade talks with the Palestine Liberation Organi-
zation to the level of a meeting between Secretary of State
James Baker III and Yasir Arafat.
"You crawl before you walk," President Bush said in rejecting
the possibility of such a meeting for now. He spoke at a White
House news conference.
Bush supported the Reagan administration's decision in
December to begin talks with the PLO once it was satisfied that
Arafat had accepted longstanding U.S. conditions for such
contact. These conditions were recognition of Israel's right to
exist, acceptance of UN Security Council Resolutions 242 and
338, and a renunciation of terrorism.
Since then, the only authorized channel for talks with the PLO
has been Robert Pelletreau Jr., the U.S. ambassador to Tunisia.
"As long as they (PLO) stay hooked and stay committed to
those three principals, we will have quite appropriate meetings
with the PLO," Bush said. He said he had not given any thought
to when a meeting with Arafat would be appropriate.
The European Community, however, has found Arafat's
recent gestures appropriate for talking to the PLO leader. The
foreign ministers of France, Greece and Spain, representing the
community, met with Arafat in Madrid and began pressing for
an international conference on the Middle East.
Bush is expected to come under pressure from King Hussein of
Jordan and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to open talks
with Arafat when he sees the two Arab leaders in Tokyo, where
they will be attending Emperor Hirihito's funeral, scheduled for
Feb. 24.
Arafat has indicated he will not seek a visa to come to
Washington, where he has been invited to address a meeting of
the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee in April,
unless he is assured of meetings with administration officials.
This takes the administration off the hook in deciding whether
or not to grant him a visa. Secretary of State George Shultz
came under intense international criticism after he refused to
issue Arafat a visa to address the UN General Assembly in New
York in December.
The UN meeting was then shifted to Geneva, where Arafat,
after several attempts, finally said the words accepted by
Washington.
Bush stressed that he wants to see what is accomplished in the
present low-level talks with the PLO before considering any
further steps.
"The point in talking to them is to try to facilitate peace in the
Middle East," he said. "And it seems to me that if there's some
logical step that requires high-level sign-off by participants over
there, then and then only would it be proper to elevate the
meetings to that level."
But, he stressed, "we're just starting."
No Pressure
from Britain
LONDON (JTA) Prime
Minister Margaret Thatcher
has invited Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir of Israel to
visit London. Discussing the
Middle East, Thatcher told
Parliament that peace talks
will take a long time to get
going and will be led by the
United States.
But the British government
will not pressure Israel to talk
to the Palestine Liberation
Organization, according to
Foreign Secretary Sir Geof-
frey Howe. He warned, how-
ever, that Israel must respond
to "events."
Howe, interviewed by the
London Jewish Chronicle s dip-
lomatic **t*r. Joseph Finkles-
tone, explained that the
"whole foundation of our
respect for Israel is baaed on
her attachment to the princi-
ples of democracy and justice,
and therefore we believe in
persuasion rather than pres-
sure." He added, "The pres-
sure on Israel is the pressure
of events. The status quo is no
answer."
Meanwhile, William Walde-
grave, a minister at the For-
eign Office, told Parliament
Britain opposes an independ-
ent Palestinian state. Walde-
grave, who met with PLO
leader Yasir Arafat in Tunis,
said the government believes
the PLO has made a historic
shift from a one-state to a
two-state solution.
PROTESTING NAZIS' PARDON Demonstrators protest outside the Dutch Parliament in
The Hague after that governmental body voted to pardon Franz Fischer, 87 and Ferdinand
Aus der Fuenten, 79 who had been serving life sentences for Nazi war crimes. The two had
served US years in prison and were believed to have been the world's longest-held war
criminals. Following their release from prison, Fischer and Aus der Fuenten were
transported via Dutch ambulance to the Dutch- West German border. (AP/Wiae World Photo)
De Facto Implementation of
'Who Is A Jew'Ruling
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
Orthodox-controlled Interior
Ministry is effectively denying
immigrant status to Reform
and Conservative converts to
Judaism, though it insists it
has not instituted a new policy.
The potentially explosive
action came to light in a state-
ment by Interior Minister
Arye Deri of the ultra-Ortho-
dox Shas party, read to the
High Court of Justice. The
statement was addressed to
Attorney General Yosef Har-
ish.
He said the ministry's aver-
sion to registering non-
Orthodox converts as Jews
would henceforth be extended
to the issuance of immigrant
visas to such converts.
Some observers see that as
tantamount to implementing
the "Who Is a Jew?" amend
ment to the Law of Return,
lone demanded by the ultra-
Orthodox, but consistently
rejected by the Knesset.
But Benny Ya'ari, the Inter-
ior Ministry's deputy legal
adviser, denied that Deri's
statement represented a new
policy.
He said it meant only that
ministry officials are now
referring converts to rabbini-
cal courts as a matter of
"friendly advice."
"Our officials are not know-
ledgeable about Jewish com-
munities around the world, so
as a matter of friendly advice
we refer converts to those who
know about Jewish communi-
ties around the world the
local rabbinical courts," Ya'ari
said.
He admitted it is virtually
unthinkable that a rabbinical
court would validate a non-
Orthodox conversion certifi-
cate.
He denied that Deri starteu
a new policy when he took
office as interior minister. But
when an official has doubts
about a document, he can
refuse to accept it, Ya'ari said.
The legal adviser pointed out
that the former interior minis-
ter, Rabbi Yitzhak Peretz also
of the Shas party, had told the
Knesset and the High Court
that non-Orthodox converts
were allowed to enter Israel
under the Law of Return, even
though he was unwilling to
register them as Jews.
Ya'ari replied that "virtually
all" of those converts were
spouses of Jews who were
automatically covered by the
Law of Return.
He maintained that Sho-
shana Miller, an unmarried
American woman converted
by a Reform rabbi, was never
given immigrant status and
remained a temporary resi-
dent as long as she was in
Israel.
The Miller case was the first
in which the Interior Ministry
refused to abide by a court
order to register a convert as a
Jew. Peretz, who was minister
at the time, resigned rather
than comply.
But Rabbi Uri Regev, direc-
tor of the Reform movement's
Religious Action Center here,
stated flatly that Miller "was
given an Aleph/1 (immigrant)
visa at the Israeli Consulate in

BONN (JTA) Anti-Semitic
vandalism was rampant in
West Berlin, leaving the Jew-
ish community outraged and
Mayor Eberhardt Diepgen
vowing that no effort will be
spared to find and punish the
perpetrators.
In one incident, pig car-
casses were hung on the Put-
litzbrueke memorial to Jews
who were transported in trains
from Berlin to Auschwitz and
other death camps.
The same desecration was
found at the Ploetzensee
memorial, where hundreds of
anti-Nazis were killed, and at
the Tiergarten, where a plaque
stands in memory of the Jew-
ish-born Communist, Rosa
Luxemburg, who was mur-
dered on that spot in 1919.
In addition, the walls were
daubed with anti-Semitic slo-
gans such as "Juden Raus"
and "Judensau."
Local news wire services
received anonymous telephone
calls claiming responsibility
from an unknown group call-
ing itself the "April 20 Move-
YOUR CAR IN ISRAEL
ment." April 20 is Hitler's
birthday.
Heinz Galinski, head of the
Jewish community in West
Germany, urged West Berlin
residents and local authorities
to prevent the town from
becoming "a playground for
anti-Semites and Nazis."
Neo-Nazi organizations are
forbidden by the Allied author-
ities in West Berlin. They are
legal in West Germany but
closely watched.
IDF Reserve Duty Shortened
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel
Defense Force reservists call-
ed to active duty this year will
have a shorter tour than last
year, but still longer than it
was before the Palestinian
uprising broke out 14 months
ago.
Maj. Gen. Uri Saguy, com-
mander of IDF ground forces,
told military correspondents
that soldiers in the ranks will
serve 40 days during the
reserve year, which starts
April 1. Officers will serve 50
days.
On average they will serve
two weeks less than the 60
days of reserve duty required
at present. Before the inti-
fada, reserve soldiers aver-
aged 30 to 35 days of active
duty a year.
The longer duty is intended
to allow regular and reserve
units make up for the training
time lost while they are
deployed to maintain order in
the territories.
The orders apply to infantry,
artillery, armored corps and
army engineers.

The New President's
Commitment
In a piece entitled "George Bush: Promises
to Keep," The Washington Post compiled a list
of fully 161 campaign promises that Vice
President Bush made as he lobbied America
for his boss' job.
The areas covered range widely from educa-
tion and economic issues to crime and drug
abuse to energy, the environment and ethics.
There are sections dealing with health and
space and summits.
From our perspective, some of the most
trenchant commitments are in the areas of
civil rights and foreign policy.
Given the increase of hate crimes in this
country, given the desire by many to restrict
the rights of a few, there can be no more
important national direction to this new
administration than to truly make this land
the Constitutionally secure one it ought to be.
On the international landscape, President
Bush will be shadowed by his firm resolve not
to offer sanction to the formation of a Pales-
tinian state. Given that he does, indeed,
encourage Palestinian participation in a poten-
tial Mideast resolution, Bush must have Solo-
monic wisdom to determine the fine lines.
In recent days, the administration's honey-
moon period has been reflected through a new
Washington mirror of ethics. That President
Bush is demanding only the best from his
appointees should put even greater stress on
his own fulfillment of campaign promises.
Political Debauchery
There is democratic sordidness at work
when the political process is bastardized by the
primary win of a former Grand Wizard of the
Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
Is it possible that the good people of a
Louisiana congressional district dismissed the
possibility that even one vote counts? And,
that they did so collectively?
-OTA
When David Duke won a spot in a runoff
after a special election last week, the agenda
of the National Association for the Advance-
ment of White People which he heads was
on the ballot.
It got a frightening 33 percent of the total
vote.
Anti-Semitism on the Rise
There is no glory in being first or near the
top in the recently published survey relating to
incidents of anti-Semitism in the United
States.
After a four-year decrease in the number of
anti-Semitic acts and harassments, the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai B'rith reported a
fifth-year high.
And Florida, together with New York and
California, led in such incidents.
The hostility measured over a 10-year period
offers no surcease of concern that, surely,
anti-Jewish bias and acting out on the
hatefilled belief system is very much a part
of the American scene.
Still.
That perpetrators of such acts pegged their
vandalism and attacks on the rationale of the
ongoing Arab uprising the intifada and the
50th anniversary of the Kristallnacht the
Night of Broken Glass in Germany and
Austria, serves no palliative purpose.
Excuses never are needed when bigotry
seeks its outlet.
These demonstrations, even when recorded
as grafitti and simple vandalism, should never
be dismissed. Too often, they are precursor to
arson and bombings and assaults.
As was the case in 1988.
With an increase of more than 18 percent in
vandalism and a 41 percent increase in per-
sonal threats and attacks, neither the ADL,
which monitors these trends, nor any Ameri-
can of good will should rest.
With anti-Semitism on the rise, every citizen
is threatened.

Maligning the Establishment
By RABBI
MARC TANENBAUM
The recent conference of lib-
eral-to-left intellectuals organ-
ized by Tikkun magazine was
impressive in terms of the
numbers of participants who
attended, as well as the re-
ported quality of the discus-
sion.
From everything I could
read in the press, it was less
than impressive by virtue of its
knee-jerk bashing of "the Jew-
ish establishment" and Israel.
I have been involved as a
professional in several "Jew-
ish establishments" for some
37 years. During most of these
decades, I do not recall seeing
any of the Tikkun core leader-
ship manning the barricades to
Florida To Host
Dem Women
The Democratic Women's
Club of Florida will host the
National Federation Demo-
cratic Women's Convention
May 25-28, at Saddlebrook
Resort, 25 minutes north of
Tampa. The theme of the con-
vention is "National Federa-
tion of Democratic Women
Shine in '89."
Democratic women from all
parts of Florida will meet Sat-
urday, Feb. 11, at Ashley
Plaza in Tampa, to finalize
convention plans.
save Jewish lives or solidify
Israel's security.
No human institution or per-
sonality, including the so-
called "Jewish establishment"
and Tikkun itself, are beyond
criticism.
But for the critique to be
taken seriously, it needs to be
truthful, balanced and fair.
That honesty requires ac-
knowledgment of certain basic
truths: It was the major Jew-
ish agencies that mobilized
American and world opinion
and political support that
resulted in the liberation of
several hundred thousand
Soviet Jews.
The same case can be made
for Ethiopian Jewry, our co-
religionists from Arab coun-
tries and defense of Jews in
South and Central America.
The Tikkun leadership, to
my knowledge, also has had
little to do with the historic
improvement in Jewish-
Christian relations in many
parts of the world.
The remarkable political and
economic support of Israel by
the United States is largely
attributable to the decades-
long mobilization by "the Jew-
ish establishment of Ameri-
can public opinion.
With all the real problems
world Jewry faces, I shudder
to think of what might happen
if the maligned "Jewish estab-
lishment" did not exist, and all
we had to depend on were
Tikkun's polemics.

the year ended Dec. 31, 1987.
According to Jefferson Ban-
corp board chairman Arthur

accepted by the business and
general communities."
Courshon also notes that the

The delegation was the first

organization since the forma-
tion of the new government.
Israel Bonds had just com-
pleted a record-breaking year,
topping the previous campaign
for the fourth consecutive
year. The $631,078,000 total
represented an increase of $27
million over 1987 results.
Later in the month, Jan. 30,
more than 150 rabbis, repre-
senting conservative, reform
and orthodox congregations in
the U.S. and Canada, arrived

UN Commander Slurs IDF
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel
lodged a strong protest with
UN peacekeeping authorities
against a Norwegian officer
who allegedly compared the
behavior of the Israel Defense
Force in Lebanon to that of the
Nazis in his native country
during World War II.
The complaint was against
Col. J.E. Carlsson, comman-
der of the Norwegian battalion
of the United Nations Interim
Force in Lebanon, for his slur
against the IDF and its allied
South Lebanon Army.
According to the Israelis,
Carlsson made his offensive
remarks in the presence of
IDF officers and officers of
several other countries which
contribute personnel to
UNIFIL.
The IDF has severed all con-
tacts with the Norwegian bat-
talion and has demanded
Carlsson's removal from the
area.
Emigration Figures Down
NEW YORK (JTA) An update by the National Conference
on Soviet Jewry now puts the total number of Jews leaving the
Soviet Union on Israeli visas in January at 2,796.
Of those emigrants, 205, or 7.3 percent, went to Israel.
The January figure is 24 percent less than December's total of
3,652. However, if the January rate is maintained or increased
for the rest of the year, more than 33,000 Jews will leave the
Soviet Union in 1989. Nearly 19,000 Jews left the Soviet Union
last year.

Consulate in Argentina as the

true not to his duty to observe
the law but to his religious
convictions, has seemingly

parties have for years failed to
secure by means of orderly
legislation," the paper said.
