Latest PLO Ploy;
Geneva Conventions
Palestinian Liberation Organi-
zation, in another ploy to adv-
ance the concept of Palestinian
statehood, says it wants to
sign the Geneva Conventions.
Nabil Ramlawi, the PLO rep-
resentative to the United
Nations in Geneva, informed
the International Red Cross
here that he would make the
request of the Swiss Foreign
The Geneva Conventions,
the international code of
humanitarian law, are admin-
istered by the Swiss federal
government. They have been
ratified by 166 nations.
The PLO request poses a
dilemma for the Swiss govern-
ment. Switzerland has not rec-
ognized the Palestinian state
proclaimed in Algiers last year
by the Palestinian National
Council, the so-called Palestin-
ian parliament-in-exile.
According to Swiss law, only
a state with international
boundaries can be recognized
as such.
But a request to sign the
Geneva Conventions may not
be unilaterally dismissed.
Switzerland is bound by the
regulations to notify all 166
signatories, which will have six
months to accept or reject the
To qualify, the requesting
party must be recognized by a
substantial number of nations
and belong to a regional organ-
Though non-existent, the
Palestinian state has been at
least partially recognized by 90
governments and is a member
of the Arab League.
Permission to sign the
Geneva Conventions would be
a significant step forward for
the PLO in its campaign to
promote the idea of Palestin-
ian statehood by acquiring the
rights and trappings of a sov-
ereign state.
Danish Police Uncover
Arms Cache
... Pro-Palestinian Link
The discovery here of an arms
cache Danish police said was
sufficient to start a small war
has resulted in the arrests of
10 people suspected of staging
robberies in support of a Syr-
ian-based Palestinian terrorist
The suspects are all Danish
nationals, one of them born in
Jordan. They were remanded
in custody for 21 days, during
which time the police hope to
gather enough evidence to sup-
port a charge sheet.
A number of suspects have
been under investigation for
some time. Six arrests were
made last month, when five
men and a woman were charg-
ed with a series of robberies in
and around Copenhagen be-
tween 1980 and 1983.
They were also accused of
kidnapping a bank director in
1980 and holding him for ran-
The proceeds of those and
other robberies since 1983
amounted to about 70 million
Danish kroner, the equivalent
of $10 million.
According to the police, the
money was sent by Syrian dip-
lomatic mail to the Popular
Front for the Liberation of
Palestine, a hard-line faction
of the Palestine Liberation
Organization headed by
George Habash.
Diplomatic mail can be dis-
patched from a special desk at
Copenhagen airport, free of
customs inspection or control.
While Syria has no resident
ambassador in the Scandinav-
ian countries, the Syrian na-
tional airline flies regularly
between Copenhagen and Da-
Discovery of the weapons
stock resulted from a road
accident. Police searching a
wrecked car found a quantity
of money and the address of an
apartment in a Copenhagen
Searching the premises,
they found weapons, ammuni-
tion, forged passports and
drivers licenses, and a police
Likud's Histadrut Candidate
Likud, confident it can make a
strong showing in next fall's
Histadrut elections, nomi-
nated Yaacov Shamai to be its
candidate for secretary-gen-
eral of Israel's trade union
federation, which has been
dominated by Labor since its
inception nearly 70 years ago.
Foreign Minister Moshe
Arens, chairman of the Likud
Secretariat, claimed the public
understands that the Labor
Party "has strangled the econ-
omy with its policies. He said
he was sure Likud can win.

Sharon Challenges Shamir Plan
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir faces an imminent show-
down within his own Herut
party over his proposals for
Palestinian elections in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Industry and Trade Minister
Ariel Sharon, the most out-
spoken opponent of the plan,
announced that he would con-
vene "within 10 days" the
Herut Central Committee,
which he chairs, to debate the
The elections are the corner-
stone of the peace plan Israel
has presented to the United
States. The idea is for Pales-
tinians in the territories to
elect representatives with
whom Israel would negotiate
an interim autonomy arrange-
But Sharon, calling the plan
"a major calamity," claims it
would lead to the creation of a
Palestinian state "and to the
partition of Jerusalem."
Political observers say that
if Shamir and his closest ally,
Foreign Minister Moshe
Arens, are unable to head off
the Central Committee ses-
sion, they will face a fierce
battle between Herut hard-
liners and the relatively mod-
erate elements in the party.
A key figure is housing Min-
ister David Levy, who is
deputy premier. While usually
moderate in Herut affairs, he
has spoken out against aspects
of Shamir's plan.
But political observers say
that even if Levy backs
Sharon, Shamir will still com-
mand a sizeable majority in the
Central Committee, whose
membership exceeds 2,000.

JEWISH PROTEST. PARIS French Jews, waving Israeli
flags and banners, protest the first official visit of PLO leader
Yasir Arafat here. The banner of the Jewish community of the
Belleville district reads; "Mitterrand betrayal. Hostage of the
terrorist PLO." The protest took place in front of the Rue
Copernic Synagogue where four people were killed and a dozen
wounded in an October 1981 terrorist attack. While the organized
community was vigorously protesting Arafat's visit, a number of
Jewish intellectuals planned a meeting with the PLO leader.

Arafat's French Connection
When French President Francois Mitter-
rand made known his intention to meet with
Palestine Liberation Organization Chairman
Yasir Arafat, two goals were met: he helped to
further legitimize terrorist movement; and he
put the French Jewish community in a defen-
sive position.
Having consummated the deal struck to
meet with Arafat but not grant him the full
treatment normally accorded a head-of-state
Mitterrand apparently attempted to put the
best face on the meeting and garner for
himself a reputation as an international states-
The result of the newest French connection
is that another Geneva-type statement dis-
avowing past PLO policy has been made .. .
Refusing to reconfirm or reaffirm or rede-
fine what he meant by "null and void" in
relation to the Palestine National Covenant
which calls for the extinction of the Jewish
state, Arafat once again equivocated.
PLO lieutenants who contradict Arafat in
the echo of his words do little, as well, to
inspire confidence in their chairman's dubious
We view with disfavor the kinds of invita-
tions that lead to Arafat playing the spotlight.
Currying favor with world leaders in the form
and fashion that Arafat has, to date, does not
accomplish the real goals that would further
Mideast peace.
PLO Redundancy
Yasir Arafat made the news last week for
his use of familiar rhetoric.
The Palestinian Liberation Organization
Chairman suggested, in French, that his PLO
covenant was "null and void" as it related to
Seems the charter itself uses the same
language: Article 19 reads that the existence
of the State of Israel is null and void.

fer once called it "ordeal by
He was describing the bat-
tering that America was un-
dergoing in the wake of the
Vietnam War. While he was
opposed to the war, he felt that
the self-flagellation America
was inflicting on itself was

belief in American democracy,
its liberties and its role in the
In many ways, the State of
Israel and its people have been
undergoing an analogous "or-
deal by change." Israel has
been experiencing an extraor-
dinary battering externally as
a result of the intifada, the
Ordeal by Change
Palestinian uprising, and
internally in the wake of the
political and religious upheav-
While the debate over the
wisdom of Israel's political pol-
icies toward peace negotia-
tions with the Palestinians and
the "Who Is a Jew" issue are
necessary and essential, it is
vital that we not lose sight of
the core reality of what Israel
represents in the context of
4,000 years of Jewish history.
Reviewing the desperate
conditions of Jewry prior to
the creation of Israel, Dr. Leo
Pinsker, the Jewish doctor of
Odessa, wrote in his classic,
"Auto-Emancipation," that
because of their statelessness
and lack of power over their
lives, "the world beheld the
Jewish people as the eerie fig-
ure of a corpse wandering
among the living."
This "ghost-phenomenon of
a wandering corpse" among
the nations inspired a "ghost
terror, Judeophobia."
With all its real problems,
Israel's existence as a sover-
eign state has ended that ghost
condition of the Jewish Dias-
pora. It is the one sure haven
whose gates are open to any
Jew anywhere who suffers or
who is threatened.
Israel's existence has ended
the role of Jews as victims of
history and has invested the
whole of Jewry with the power
of mastery over our fate and
Yom Ha'atzmaut is an
important time to restore that
historic perspective.

Q: You said in French that the Charter is caduque, that is
to say nullified "
Arafat: "That is your translation. Would it make sense
for me to teach you how translate?"
Q: "Let's say that it has expired (Arabic: Faata alaiha
alzaman) "
Arafat: "It has aged (Arabic: Taqaadamat)."
Q: "Fine, the translation is: 'It has aged'."
Arafat: "The word Taqaadamat appears in many verses
in the Koran with regard to other [earlier] verses. Does this
mean that these other verses were nullified? No."
Q: "If the Charter can be amended only by the PNC, are
you ready to convene a meeting on the issue? Is there a
possibility "
Arafat: "Can anyone claim that it is possible to change
something adopted by the PNC not by means of the PNC
members, whether it concerns political decisions, the
Declaration of Independence, or the Charter."
Stamp Memorial
L^ttBFS from our readers:
an effort that enabled thou-
sands of Jewish immigrants to
adapt to their new land while
continuing their traditional
religious education.
The stamp recognizing Dr.
Revel is the 35th issue in the
U.S. Postal Service's Great
American Series. Unlike a
commemorative stamp, which
is available for a short time
only to mark a special event or
anniversary, Great American
stamps are issued on a long-
term basis.
Jewish people across Amer-
ica should take special pride in
the unique honor bestowed on
Dr. Bernard Revel.
An eminent Jewish scholar
and educator received the very
distinct honor of being immor-
talized on a United States
postage stamp. Dr. Bernard
Revel, president of Yeshiva
University for 25 years, is now
featured on a $1 stamp. The
stamp was issued in conjunc-
tion with the centennial of
Yeshiva University, the
nation's oldest and largest
institution of higher learning
under Jewish auspices.
A highly regarded Talmudic
scholar, Dr. Revel came to the
United States in 1906 and, in
1915, was named president of
Yeshiva. While there, he
implemented a curriculum that
combined Jewish studies with
a secular educational program,

Incitement to Riot
At Soldier's Funeral

Resistance At Dachau
** W*4440*
Police in Ashdod were out in
force to curb rioting by Jewish
youths, following the funeral
of Sgt. Avi Sasportas, presum-
ably kidnapped and murdered
oy Arabs.
The violence was triggered
jy the discovery of the 21-
year-old paratrooper's re-
mains. He was found in a
shallow grave near the Gaza
Strip, not far from where he
was last seen Feb. 16 trying to
hitch a ride home on weekend
The discovery was made in
the course of a search for
another soldier, Ilan Sa'adon,
who was last seen hitching a
ride to Ashkelon on May 3.
Eight Arab laborers were
reportedly attacked and beat-
en by roving bands of youths
shouting "death to Arabs."
Police used smoke grenades
to disperse other angry mobs.

party was on hand to incite
and inflame passions.
Afterward, more than 50
youths hurled stones at pass-
ing Arab cars. An attempt to
blockade the main highway to
Gaza was promptly thwarted
by police.
Israel Defense Force Chief
of Staff Gen. Dan Shomron
said that in virtually all such
cases in the past, the assail-
ants were "ultimately caught
and punished. This time will be
no different, he promised.
BONN (JTA) West Ger-
many's extreme right-wing
Republican Party, seen by
many here as a neo-Nazi
group, is trying to block plans
to open an educational center
for youth at the site of the
Dachau concentration camp.
The party's leader, however,
denied allegations that the
Republicans are seeking to
remove the Holocaust memo-
rial already in place at the site.
Republican leader Franz
Schoenhuber spoke in Munich
with reporters after Gernoit
Jellin, the Republican chair-
man in the town of Dachau,
told a crowded meeting that
the town was tired of being
linked with the adjacent camp.
Jellin's statements were
enthusiastically applauded by
supporters and touched off
rumors that the party is about
to urge a closure of the memo-
rial site.
Jellin is a police officer who
has been presented as a typical
example of the broad support
the Republicans allegedly
enjoy among men and women
in uniform.
Schoenhuber vowed recently
to disclose the names of sev-
eral generals in active service
who support the party.
He said that the planned
youth center is irrelevant and
could only harm the cause of
fighting extremism and
"We just think enough is
enough," he said. But he den-
ied that the Republicans would
call for the closure of the pre-
sent memorial.

have discovered a new way to
restore to health victims of
poisoning by toxic metals such
as mercury, lead and arsenic.
Scientists in Technion's

procedure which takes only
three to five hours.

rejected the Israeli govern-

accepting press cards issued
by the Palestinian Press
Office. The cards have been
issued to journalists covering
events in the administered ter-
Right-wing Knesset mem-
bers sharply criticized foreign
correspondents who use the
cards, saying they should be
thrown out of the country.
Police Minister Haim Bar-Lev
said he would investigate poss-
ible illegalities connected with
the issuing of the cards.
The FPA responded to the
government saying that re-
porters had accepted the cards
for their own safety. Israeli
police posing as journalists and
using counterfeit press creden-
tials in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip had put them in
danger, the association said.
The Palestinian Press Office
reportedly has issued 100 ID
cards to foreign journalists.

American Tourist Profiled
JERUSALEM (JTA) Statistics recently published by
the Ministry of Tourism revealed that three-quarters of the

A profile of American tourists who come to Israel shows

Two-thirds of them make their own travel arrangements
rather than join an inclusive tour.
Some of the findings include:
74 percent of the American tourists are Jewish.
36 percent come in inclusive package tours.
41 percent make their decisions six months or more
before their trip.
99 percent arrive on scheduled flights, only one percent
on charters.
42 percent give the desire to visit relatives or friends as
one of their reasons for traveling.
61 percent stay in hotels. Average expenditure is
$1,300, or $62 per day.

Trying to plan a funeral
at a time when your grief is
overwhelming may not insure the best
decisions being made. That's why Levitt-
Weinstein offers the Guaranteed Security
Plan... the pre-arrangement program
that allows you time to plan, freezes the
cost of funeral and burial at today's
prices and relieves you or your family
of taking care of everything at a very
difficult time.
And as an incentive to
plan now, Levitt-Weinstein
will write your name on a $100
check and apply it to a new Guaranteed
Security Plan pre-arrangement program
for you. And if you currently hold a pre-
need plan other than GSP, we will be
pleased to evaluate whether it best serves
your needs. Our $100 offer is valid only
through June 30,1989.

Showdown Demanded Over Election Law
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir faces an imminent show-
down within his own Herut
party over his proposals for
Palestinian elections in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Industry and Trade Minister
Ariel Sharon, the most out-
spoken opponent of the plan,
announced that he would con-
vene "within 10 days" the
Herut Central Committee,
which he chairs, to debate the
The elections are the corner-
stone of the peace plan Israel
has presented to the United
States. The idea is for Pales-
tinians in the territories to
elect representatives with
whom Israel would negotiate
an interim autonomy arrange-
But Sharon, calling the plan
"a major calamity," claims it
would lead to the creation of a
Palestinian state "and to the
partition of Jerusalem."
Political observers say that
if Shamir and his closest ally,
Foreign Minister Moshe
Arens, are unable to head off
the Central Committee ses-
sion, they will face a fierce
battle between Herut hard-
liners and the relatively mod-
erate elements in the party.
A key figure is housing Min-
ister David Levy, who is
deputy premier. While usually
moderate in Herut affairs, he
has spoken out against aspects
of Shamir's plan.
But political observers say mand a sizeable majority in the
that even if Levy backs Central Committee, whose
