WASHINGTON (JTA) President Reagan has sent
messages to the Presidents of Israel and Turkey express-
ing the "sympathy of the American people"over the ter-
rorist attack on Istanbul's largest synagogue Saturday in
which 21 worshippers were killed and four were wounded.
STATE DEPARTMENT spokesman Bernard Kalb, in
announcing Monday that the messages had been sent,
repeated the Department's condemnation of the attack and
"its shock at the terrible loss of life."
"There can be no justification for this brutal and in-
discriminate attack," Kalb said. "Attacks, such as this

Bloodiest Synagogue Massacre Since

The machine gun and
grenade attack by two Arab
terrorists on the Neve
Shalom Synagogue in Istan-
bul Saturday morning,
which took the lives of at
least 21 Sabbath worship-
pers and wounded four,
bore the stamp of the Abu
Nidal gang, a dissident fac-
tion of the PLO based in
Syria, according to experts

countries.
Premier Shimon Peres, ex-
pressing outrage and revulsion at
what was probably the bloodiest
synagogue massacre since the
Nazi era, vowed on an Israel
television interview Saturday
night that "We will not rest until
we cut off this murderous hand."
HE ADDED that "whoever
hesitates about American
responses or Israeli responses can
now learn a lesson," a reference
to the U.S. bombing of Libya last
April in retaliation for terrorist
acts against American nationals.
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir declared that "Israel has
to constantly conduct an ag-
gressive war against all the terror
organizations in every place and
at every time to prevent them
from carrying out beastly attacks
like this one."

Shamir Says 'No'
He Didn't Authorize Beating of Arabs
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Deputy Prime Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir has rejected
allegations by the former
head of the Shin Bet that he
had authorized the beating
deaths of two Palestinian
bus hijackers and subse-
quent coverup two years
ago.
According to local press
reports, Shamir was interrogated
last week on his role in the affair.
Shamir was Prime Minister at the
time of the hijacking, which came
to an end when the bus was storm-
ed by Israeli soldiers. Two of the
four hijackers were killed during
the storming of the bus, but two
were taken alive and subsequently
beaten to death during interroga-
tion by Shin Bet agents.
ACCORDING TO reports,
Shamir told his interrogator,
Police Inspector-General David
Kraus, that he had learned of the
death of the two captured ter-
rorists in the hands of the security
forces only after the affair.
He said he had not known of the
conspiracy to mislead the two
committees that investigated the
affair, until a complaint was made
by Reuven Hazak, who worked
under Avraham Shalom, head of
Shin Bet at the time.
Shamir's reported evidence
came in direct contrast with the
testimony of Shalom, who ex-
plicitly said, in his pardon request
to President Chaim Herzog, that
all his actions were carried out
"with permission and authority,"
meaning with the full knowledge
of the Premier at the time.
It is now the task of Attorney-
General Yosef Harish to decide
whether the conflicting versions
have brought the investigation to
a dead end, or whether both ver-
sions should be brought before the
court to decide.
FORMER Attorney-General
Yitzhak Zamir warned last week
that he was alarmed by recent
statements from important public
figures "which might lead to a
deterioration in the rule of law."
He was referring to statements
by Premier Shimon Peres and
others that standard judicial pro-
ces must sometimes be subor-
dinated to security concerns. This
was used as an argument against
holding a full-scale public in-
vestigation into the case.
The police investigation now
under way is not public and those
Shin Bet officials who have been
implicated in the affair have
already received pardons from
Herzog.
In a speech Tuesday (Sept. 2),
Zamir sharply criticized the coun-
try's jurists for not sounding their
opinions at the height of the public
debate on the rule of law in the
Shin Bet affair. He urged jurists
to show greater involvement in
the issue.
"Everyone must obey the law,"
said Zamir, "and that includes the
government." For that, he said,
"one needs real leadership."
"Who will decide in which cases
one can ignore the law?" he said.
"Who will decide? The Premier?
The Defense Minister? And why
only them? Why not the Chief of
Staff? Or the commander of a
military operation, or any other
security agency? Hasn't it been
said that vital economic interests
may take precedence over the
law? And the fear of God? And the
wholeness of the country? Then
what will be left of the rule of law?
If the government does not
respect the law, one cannot expect
the citizens to do so."
JUSTICE MINISTER
Avraham Sharir differed with
Zamir, saying the Shin Bet Affair
was an extraordinary case, from
which one should not draw conclu-
sions on the rule of law in Israel.
"Israel is a state of law," he said.
"And there is no threat to that
rule."
Sharir expressed concern over
the negligence which he said
plagues the Israeli legal system,
and "the primitive management
of the courts, which fits the Ot-
toman era."
Nazi Bigwig
His Death Mocked Justice System
By MORTON ROSENTHAL
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Walter Kutschmann, the
Nazi war criminal fighting
extradition to West Ger-
many, was buried in Argen-
tina on Sept. 1. For society
at large, his death, ap-
parently caused by a heart
attack, serves to validate
the maxim, "Justice delayed
is justice denied."
Kutschmann's demise also
helped the Argenine government
out of the embarrassing position
in which it was placed by a federal
judge who recently decided to
take at least two more years to
determine whether the man who
claimed to be Pedro Ricardo
Olmo, a Spaniard, was really
Kutschmann.
THE KUTSCHMANN case has
been an exercise in delay. It first
came before the Argentine courts
in August, 1975. The government
of West Germany asked for his ar-
rest and extradition that year
after Simon Wiesenthal identified
Olmo as Kutschmann, the war
criminal who had murdered
several thousand Jews in Poland.
That same month, the Argen-
tine prosecutor asked the govern-
ment of Spain for the fingerprints
of Pedro Olmo. He never followed
up his request, and the case
became dormant.
In June, 1980, Judge Jorge
Segretto was informed that the
case file had been lying in a cour-
thouse safe for five years. The
Argentine court then renewed its
efforts to get necessary
documents.
SIX YEARS late, on July 28,
1986 the prosecutor presented the
same Judge Segretto with a bulg-

deserve the condemnation of all civilized countries."
Kalb said that the United States does not know which
"particular terrorist group or country" was responsible for
the attack. The U.S. also does not know which group car-
ried out the hijacking of the Pan American plane in
Karachi, Pakistan, last week.
HOWEVER, the four terrorists captured in Karachi
are Palestinians, as are believed to have been the two ter-
rorists who died while throwing hand grenades and firing
submachine guns in the Istanbul synagogue. President
Mohammed Zia of Pakistan said Monday that he had good
relations with the Palestinians, particularly Yasir Arafat,
head of the PLO.
But Kalb said that the U.S. has "confidence" that
Pakistan would carry out the prosecution of the hijackers.
Zia said the hijackers would be tried, noting that Pakistan's
law carries the death penalty for terrorism.
ing file of properly certified
documents which, in the opinion
of well informed individuals in
Argentina and Germany, proved
beyond doubt that Olmo was in
fact Kutschmann. The evidence
included the death certificate and
fingerprints of Pedro Ricardo
Olmo.
The Kutschmann case has also
been marked with instances of un-
conscionable hasste. Judge Enri-
que Carlos Shlegel, the presiding
judge, allowed less than five
minutes for court hearings on
Kutschmann's identity. When
"Olmo" came before him on
November 18, 1983, Judge
Schlegel as true his assertions
that he was Olmo, born in Spain,
and that he knew nothing of
Kutschmann. The judge did not
permit the questioning to go
beyond those answers.
Segretto, acting with unusual
speed, took leas than 24 hours to
announce the most recent and
most shocking delay. Upon receiv-
ing the completed file on July 28,
1986 he had three options to
issue a summary decision in a day
or two, to deliberate for a week or
two, or to proceed with an "or-
dinary" trial to determine
Kutschmann's identity. The latter
would require a period of 2 to 5
years.
TO THE dismay of many and
the embarrassment of the ex-
ecutive branch of the Argentine
government, Segretto who has
known the case for six years
chose the "ordinary trial
procedure.
The Argentine judiciary now
has an even more badly tarnished
image. Although Kutschmann is
dead, his flouting of justice has
caused many to wonder why he
and other Nazis are still protected
in Argentina.
Even in death, Kutschmann
mocked the justice system. The
Spaniard, "Olmo," was buried in
the German cemetery of
Polvorines, in Buenos Aires
province.
FOREIGN MINISTER SHAMIR
Peres' Last Tango in Paris?
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) The Centen-
nial celebrations marking the
birth of David Ben-Gurion,
Israel's first Prime Minister and a
founder of the Jewish State, will
be launched in Paris next month
at a gala concert given by the
Paris Philharmonic Orchestra
under the baton of Daniel
Barenboim.
The Prime Ministers of Israel
and France, Shimon Peres and
Jacques Chirac, and dozens of
other international personalities
will attend the event.
Peres is scheduled to arrive here
a few days before the start of the
celebrations for meetings with
President Francois Mitterrand
and Chirac. It will probably be his
last trip abroad as Israel's
Premier before handing over the
Premiership to Deputy Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir.
France was chosen as the site to
launch the commemoration
celebrations because of the late
Premier's personal relations with
France. Ben-Gurion is credited as
the artisan of Israel's close ties
with France, which reached a
climax with their de facto alliance
during the 1956 Suez operation.

In Jerusalem
Israel's Leaders Denounce Istanbul Slaughter
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The country's top leaders
denounced Sunday the
atrocity in Istanbul as the
height of anti-Semitic ter-
rorism and warned that
Israel will not rest until it
crushes the evil of terrorism
against the Jewish people
everywhere.
Prime Minister Shimon Peres
said: "No event has shown so
starkly the bestial nature of this
terrorism than what we saw this
(Saturday) morning in a
synagogue in Istanbul. Innocent
people, old people were murdered
in cold blood in the midst of their
prayers they were shot, then
set afire, without any respect for
human life, for worship, for a
synagogue.
"THERE IS STILL a world
that thinks that madmen can be
allowed to operate, move about
and commit murder in it. From
our point of view, we shall first of
all, of course, pray for the souls of
the innocent worshippers: the en-
tire Jewish people is today bound
in one great prayer. We shall send
condolences to the families.
"But we are also a State, and
we not only pray. We will not rest
until we lop off this murderous
arm such as we have not known
since the Nazis. We will pursue
them everywhere, and we will get
to them. At this stage, the govern-
ment of Turkey has to work in
order to determine whether any of
the terrorists still remain, to bring
them to trial, and to judge them
with full gravity."
"This attack has no political
significance. These are wild
animals, and we need not look for
meanings or diversities or political
nuances that is absurd. Today
the nation is united against
murder, against such a pogrom,
and this is what is on our national
agenda."
DEPUTY PREMIER and
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir
said: "It seems to me that the
heart of every Jew in Israel and in
the world is today bleeding. What
happened in the Neve Shalom
Synagogue in Istanbul is the
height of the bestial cruelty and
the profound hate of the anti-
Jewish and anti-Israeli terrorism.
"The Jewish blood that was
spilled in the synagogue in the
Istanbul diaspora obligates the
Jewish State to step up and inten-
sify its war of initiative against
the terrorist organizations, in
every place and at all times.
"It is essential to take all
measures in order to prevent the
men of blood from persisting in
the perpetration of their crimes.
And after what happened in
Karachi as well, the need for an
international struggle against in-
ternational terrorism becomes
more urgent with every passing
day.
"Israel must demand that other
countries enlist themselves, with
all the strength required, in this
struggle in order to extirpate the
affliction that is endangering all

At Sobibor
Catholic Church Was Built on Torture Chamber
By JTA Services
WARSAW A Roman
Catholic church has been built on
the site of a former Nazi torture
chamber at the Sobibor death
camp, where 200,000 Jews were
killed by gassing, the World
Jewish Congress reported here.
According to the WJC, Euro-
pean Jewish communities are
outraged at this development,
coming in the wake of the continu-
ing controversy over the erection
of a Carmelite convent in a
building which stored gas
canisters in the Auschwitz death
camps.
Virtually all of the victims at
Sobibor were Jewish. From April,
1942 to October, 1943 some
200,000 Jews from Poland, The
Netherlands, France,
Czechoslovakia and the Soviet
Union were transported to the
camp outside of Lublin where they
were killed in the gas chambers
and cremated.
The church was erected on the
site of a tiny chapel which the
Nazis had converted to a torture
chamber. The church contains no
reference to being on the site of a
camp created to murder Jews, and
there is no sign or plaque
memorializing the victims, the
WJC reported.
Anti-Terrorist Demo
Staged in Paris
PARIS A mass demonstra-
tion against terrorism and the
countries and organizations which
back it was held here Tuesday.
Jewish organizations called for a
protest march from the Memorial
to the Unknown Jewish Martyr to
Bastille Square, once a symbol of
terror and oppression.
French Jews, who traditionally
have close links with Turkey's
Jewish community, were shocked
and dismayed by the Saturday
morning attack on an Istanbul
synagogue which left at least 21
worshippers dead and wounded
several others.
The Central body of French
Jewry (CRIF) cabled a message of
solidarity and sympathy to the
Turkish Chief Rabbi. CRIF presi-
dent Theo Klein called on the
French government and the
governments of all democratic na-
tions "to take all the necessary
measures to prevent the reoccur-
rence" of such outrages.
Search Launched
For Sunken Submarine
TEL AVTV A specially-
equipped U.S. Navy aircraft car-
rying Israeli and Egyptian
observers began a systematic
search over Egyptian territorial
waters Saturday for traces of the
Israeli submarine Dakar which
disappeared 18 years ago.
The mission, to have begun a
week earlier, was delayed because
the Egyptian authorities refused
to allow the plane to take off from
the Alexandria airfield. The
search for the Dakar, however, is
a joint effort by Israel and Egypt
with technical assistance and
equipment provided by the U.S.
The search plane, an Orion P-3
reconnaissance aircraft equipped
with magnetic detectors, carries a
crew of 22. If the wreck is spotted,
future searches will be conducted
by surface craft employing
sophisticated underwater
equipment.
The Dakar, a British submarine
of World War II vintage purchas-
ed by Israel, was lost with her
69-man Israeli crew on her
delivery voyage to Haifa. The
undersea craft was last heard
from on January 25, 1968.
Israel Plans To Revive
Project Exodus in Africa
JERUSALEM The recent
thaw in relations between Israel
and the Black African nations that
broke diplomatic ties with it after
the 1973 Yom Kippur War will
revive a project undertaken by
Israeli ophthalmologists 27 years
ago to eradicate eye diseases com-
mon to tropical Africa.
Four Israeli ophthalmologists
will establish eye clinics in Africa
shortly. Their work is a continua-
tion of Project Exodus, establish-
ed in 1959 by the late Prof. Isaac
Foreign Minister
Michaelson of Hadassah Hospital
in Jerusalem to fight such eye
diseases as trachoma and river
blindness.
Michaelson had succeeded in
eradicating them in Israel and his
procedures were introduced in
many African countries by Israeli
doctors in the 1960s. An interna-
tional symposium dedicated to
Michaelson's memory recently
closed in Jerusalem.
It was organized by Hadassah
Hospital and attended by
ophthalmologists from 26 coun-
tries including Poland, Hungary,
Lesotho, Liberia and Haiti. The
symposium dealt with another
area of Michaelson's expertise
ocular circulation and
neovascularization.
UN Chief Shocked
By Istanbul Attack
UNITED NATIONS UN
Secretary General Javier Perez de
Cuellar said Monday that he is
"deeply shocked and outraged by
the attack against a synagogue in
Istanbul during the weekend and
the resulting loss of human life."
A statement released through
his spokesman said the Secretary
General "condemns in the
strongest possible terms this
odious and senseless act of ter-
rorism." The statement also con-
demned the hijacking of a Pan
American airliner at Karachi air-
port last Friday. It recalled that
the General Assembly adopted a
resolution last December condem-
ning international terrorism and
the taking of hostages.
The statement said the
Secretary General "strongly feels
that every effort should be made
by the international community
and individual member states to
implement this resolution and br-
ing to an end such abhorrent
practices."

determination" during a two-day
visit to Saudi Arabia this week.
His remarks were reported by the
French press on his arrival in
Jeddah.
He held tlaks with Prince Faisal
during which he delivered a
message from French Prime
Minister Jacques Chirac to King
Fahd before returning home.
News reports said his talks with
the Prince focused on the Persian
Gulf war, the Palestinian question
and bilateral cooperation.
The Foreign Minister's com-
ments were viewed as a further
bid to smooth ruffled Arab public
opinion over comments made to
an Israeli journalist by Chirac last
month in which he said he did not
believe in a Palestinian state.
Chirac and his Ministers subse-
quently backtracked on the com-
ments, and in meetings with two
senior PLO officials, Raimond
said France's two-pronged policy
on the Middle East remained un-
changed recognition of Israel's
right to exist and support for
Palestinian self-determination.
He stressed that his visit was
the first to Saudi Arabia an
"essential partner for France."

Terrorists Show They're
Anti-Semitic After All
The terrorist attack on the Neve Shalom
Synagogue in Istanbul on Saturday puts the
lie to Arab claims that they are not anti-
Semitic but "merely" anti-Zionist. The
machinegunning to death of 21 worshippers
after the terrorists bolted the doors of the
synagogue so that none of their victims
might escape demonstrates better than any
of the Arab leaders' words that they are op-
posed to this kind of wanton violence.
They are not. They support it. They
finance it. They arm it. They help train the
assassins.
The synagogue attack in Istanbul is all of a
piece with the hijacking of the Pan
American jetliner in Karachi, Paksitan the
day before. There, the murderous attack
was just as wanton and just as cynical.
There, the object was to collect American
passports and, particularly, perhaps, the
passports of Americans who were Jewish.
When the terrorists' plan failed in this, it
seemed that everything went awry, abetted
by the depletion of generator fuel that turn-
ed the jet s lights out and stampeded the ter-
rorists into their wild, indifferent,
murderous fusillade.
Cautious About Syria
We applaud the verbal rapidity with which
the Keagan Administration responded to the
attack in Karachi but are bewildered by the
apparent lack of determined retaliation just
as soon as it became a safe assumption that
the terrorists were not Libyan-based but
more likely, Lebanese.
In a word, this meant Syria. We are
reminded of the speed of the U.S.
retaliatory effort against Tripoli in the Spr-
ing, although it was already clear that Syria
was the probable source of the provocation
then. The Administration's decision to tread
softly with Syria now may well suggest to
President Assad in Damascus that he is im-
mune against U.S. anger inspired by
"Lebanese" depredations.
Last weekend's double round of terrorism
in Karachi and Istanbul may, indeed, be a
source of argument for the proposition that
Syria has already gotten the message. This,
despite current thinking that the Istanbul
attack was more likely the work of Abu
Nidal than an Assad inspiration.
Need for Response
One thing for sure: The respite from ter-
rorism that the world enjoyed since the U.S.
bombing of Libya in retaliation against the
terrorist attack on a frequently-attended
nitery by American servicemen in West Ger-
many is now over. It is time that the
Western nations joined hands in a genuine,
all-out response to Arab terrorism.
Unhappily, that is perhaps a more com-
plicated job than any would-be war against
the terrorists themselves. France, in par-
ticular, but also Britain and West Germany,
are always ready to play footsie with ter-
rorism whenever terrorists tender them
phony guarantees of immunity.

At 41st General Assembly
Israel To Focus on Human Rights
By YITZHAK RABI
Israel is planning
to focus its efforts in the
41st session of the UN
General Assembly, which
opens here Sept. 17, on
human rights issues.
"We want to draw the world's
attention to the plights of Jews in
the Soviet Union, Syria, Iran and
elsewhere,'' Binyamin
Netanyahu, Israel's Ambassador
to the UN, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency.
"We shall warn of the growing
threat of anti-Semitism, and we
shall demand that more be done to
expose and prosecute Nazi war
criminals. All of Jewish ex-
perience tell us that to be silent in
the face of repression is to insure
its continuity."
ACCORDING TO diplomats at
the UN, Israel can afford to focus
its efforts this year on human
rights issues since the Mideast
conflict and its ramifications will
not dominate the Assembly as in
previous years.
"There is a feeling of general
fatigue over the never-ending
Arab-Israeli conflict," one
diplomat observed. "The world's
attention is focused now on the
situation in South Africa, and this
issue will probably dominate the
41st session of the General
Assembly."
Eyal Arad, Israel's spokesman
at the UN, said in an interview
In U.S.
that Israel believes a pro-Israel
trend which emergd in last year's
Assembly will continue into this
year's.
"In the last General Assembly,
we saw a marked decline in the
anti-Israeli votes of many coun-
tries," Arad claimed. "More and
more nations recognized that the
infusion of extremism and hatred
into the deliberations of the UN
caused more damage to the
reputation of the organization
than it caused Israel. We shall
double our efforts this year to
maintain the trend of improve-
ment regarding Israel."
IT WOULD BE a mistake, in
the opinion of some diplomats, to
assume that the Arabs will not try
to use all the means at their
disposal to discredit and vilify
Israel. But, they noted, the Arabs
are aware that they are facing a
new reality and that they can no
longer pass any anti-Israel resolu-
tion they want to.
The Arabs suffered major
defeats in last year's Assembly,
which marked the 40th anniver-
sary of the organization. Most
notably, they were rebuffed in
their efforts to invite PLO leader
Yasir Arafat to address the
Assembly, and to inject an anti-
Israeli statement into the 40th
session's final declaration.
Moreover, for the first time in its
history the UN passed a resolu-
tion condemning terrorism, much
to the dismay of many Arab coun-
tries and the PLO.
The extremist anti-Israeli coun-
tries, such as Iran, Iraq, Syria and
Libya, are expected again to in-
troduce a resolution requesting
the suspension of Israel from the
deliberations of the Assembly.
But as their efforts were thwarted
in previous years, their attempt,
according to diplomats, will be re-
jected once again, with even more
countries voting against the Arab
move this year.
According to Arad, there was a
decline of at least 10 percent in
the anti-Israeli votes at the UN
last year compared with the year
before. "The PLO has lost almost
all its influence at the UN and no
longer can arrange anti-Israeli
votes at the UN as it pleases,"
Arad maintained.
ISRAEL WILL be represented
in the 41st General Assembly at a
20-member delegation, headed by
Netanyahu. Seven members of the
delegation are part of permanent
staff of the UN Israel Mission, and
the other 13 will arrive here for
the duration of the Assembly, un-
til the middle of December. Col.
Assad Assad, an Israeli Druze,
has already arrived in New York
as part of the delegation. It is not
clear if Natan Sharansky will join
the delegation as was reported
earlier.
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir will arrive in New York
Sept. 24 to attend the Assembly.
He is scheduled to address the
Assembly's general debate Sept.
30.

Terrorism Shocks Leaders
Friday, September 12,1986
Volume 8

Number 29
By MARGIE OLSTER
NEW YORK (JTA) -
American Jewish leaders
are reacting with shock and
horror to the mass murder
of 21 Jews worshipping in
Istanbul's Neve Shalom
Synagogue on Sabbath
morning.
Morris Abram, chairman of the
Conference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations,
said Sunday, "We are as horrified
by this appalling criminal and in-
sane act as we were by the bloody
hijacking of the Pan American
plane in Karachi.
"If the world is to rid itself of
the obscenity of terrorism, na-
tions must demand that such
governments as Saudi Arabia,
Syria, South Yemen and the
Soviet Union no less than Libya
must stop supplying terrorist
gangs with arms, training, money
and safe haven.
"The slaughter of Jews in Istan-
bul by Arab terrorists reminds us
again that it is not only Israel but
the Jewish people itself that is the
target of fanatical hatred."
Nathan Perlmutter, national
director of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, agreed
that the source of terrorism needs
to be dealt with. "The home bases
of terrorists should be struck.
Maybe that will provide their host
countries with the motivation to
police them," Perlmutter said.
THE AMERICAN Jewish Con-
gress linked the massacre to other
bloody acts of historical anti-
Semitism. Theodore Mann, presi-
dent of AJCongress said Sunday,
"We do know that the Sabbath
service was to have been a festive
occasion in the Istanbul
synagogue. It marked the first
service since the reopening of the
synagogue following its
reconstruction and refurbishing.
It now stands as the burnt and
bloody scene of an insane, coward-
ly attack upon a congregation
whose only fault was its Jewish
identity."
Mann continued, "This con-
clusively belies any disclaimer by
Moslem or Palestinian terrorist
organizations that they are not
motivated by conventional,
historic, vicious anti-Semitism.
"Clearly it is not merely Israel
who is the target of their attack.
It is the Jews of the world against
whom they aim their guns. They
are motivated not simply by a
resurgent nationalism but by
degenerate bigotry and religious
hatred."
Just six weeks ago, an
AJCongress delegation of officers
visited Turkey to establish closer
relations with the Turkish Jewish
community, 20,000 of whom live
in Istanbul. Mann said Henry
Siegman, executive director of
AJCongress, went to Istanbul to
attend the funeral for the victims.
AMERICAN JEWISH Com-
mittee president Theodore
Ellenoff said the "criminal act" in
Istanbul comes on the heels of the
equally horrible killing of 18 inno-
cent civilians and the wounding of
scores of others in the hijacking.
"Clearly, we are faring another
wave of Islamic fanaticism and
violence ... the international
community, especially those who
uphold the sanctity of each human
life and support law and civility,
must strengthen their resolves
and join forces to assure that this
criminal element is brought to
justice for this murderous deed."
In other reactions Sunday
Alleck Resnick, president of the
Zionist Organization of America
called on the United Nations
member-states to expel the PLO.
"The ZOA demands that the PLO
be finally and formally outlawed
by all the world's nations who pro-
fess to oppose terrorism,"
Resnick said.
IN A STATEMENT issued
from Jerusalem, the Simon
Wiesenthal Center equated Arab
fanatical hatred of Jews with that
of the Nazis.
"Today's attack on the
synagogue in Turkey a coward-
ly and vicious act is reminiscent
of similar outrages by history's
worst Jew-haters, the Nazis. It is
further proof that to many in the
Arab world, Judaism is the
enemy, and that claims by Arab
states that they are only anti-
Zionist are sheer fantasy," said
the Center's dean, Rabbi Marvin
Hier.
"It is about time leaders in the
West faced this reality that it is
the fanatic hatred of radical, fun-
damentalist Moslems and their
hatred of Jews which constitutes
the major obstacle to peace in the
Middle East."
Rabbi William Berkowitz, na-
tional president of the American
Jewish Heritage Committee, sent
a telegram to the United Nations
Secretary General urging united
world action against terrorism.
Berkowitz said in the letter,
"The recurring problem of ter-
rorism should be put on the for-
thcoming agenda of the General
Assembly so that it be made clear
that those nations which harbor
terrorists within their borders and
give aid and comfort to them,
whether through funds or guns,
will be censured and condemned.
The civilized world cannot endure
if it is to be at the mercy of inter-
national pirates and thugs who
murder innocent civilians in the
pursuit of their goals."
ERNEST ZELIG. president of
B'nai Zion, also compared the
massacre to acts reminiscent of
the Nazis. "The cold-blooded

IDF Opens
Debate
On Needs
In Future
By HIRSCH GOODMAN
London Chronicle Syndicate
The IDF High Com-
mand has initiated a series
of debates on the Army's
development plan for the
next decade. The plan will
be the basis on which
Israel's security strategy
will be built, dictating the
composition of the country's
forces to 1996, and hence its
overall deterrent posture.
It will take into account the
weapons systems expected to
reach the arena from both east
and west over the next 10 years,
assuming a worst-case scenario of
confrontation states, including a
potentially hostile Egypt.
The plan, whose code-name
means "the heavens," is also be-
ing based on the assumption of a
diminishing defense budget, the
implications of which are so
severe that, according to Chief of
General Staff Moshe Levy, "Even
if the Lavi project is killed, and no
new aircraft are acquired, we will
not be able to cater to our minimal
needs."
LEVY'S pessimism is due to an
expectation of diminishing funds
on two fronts: a drop in U.S. aid,
due to the Gramm-Ruddman
Amendment which sets a ceiling
on U.S. budget deficits and the
shrinking value of the dollar, and
continued cuts in the defense
budget at home.
Decisions taken now will only be
felt in 10 years, a decade being the
normal time-frame for the
development, supply and integra-
tion of a weapons system. They
have to be accurate in their projec-
tions of the threat, and of Israel's
economic and demographic ability
to respond. They have correctly to
project the answers to dozens of
basic strategy questions, such as:
The outcome of the Iraq-Iran
war and what the end of that con-
flict will mean in terms of the con-
stellation of forces Israel may
have to face;
The types of armaments flow-
ing into the region and the ability
of the Arabs to absorb them;
The economic, demographic,
sociological and political realities
in the neighboring and peripheral
Arab countries;
Israel's projected industrial
and technological capabilities;
And even the attitudes of
future U.S. administrations.
GENERAL STAFF will, in
essence, have to decide on the size
and structure of Israel's future
order of battle, as a consequence
dictating strategic imperatives to
future generations. If, for exam-
ple, the generals decide to build a
small but highly sophisticated ar-
my, based on a rapid and deadly
Among questions raised is: how many

response in the early stages of
battle, they are in fact
establishing preemption as a cor-
nerstone of Israeli strategy.
These are some of the baisc
dilemmas that currently face
Moshe Levy's General Stalfc
The size of the Air Force in
relation to other branches of the
Army and the internal mix of
frontline as opposed to less
sophisticated aircraft;
What number of Lavi fighters
the Air Force will procure
through to 1996 and beyond an
Air Force of 400 aircraft, for ex-
ample, would not be able to absorb
the 300 Lavi aircraft currently
envisioned;
There will have to be a fun-
damental decision concerning the
economic viability of the Lavi pro-
gram. It obviously is out of the
question to continue with the
multi-billion dollar project if only
50 Lavis, again hypothetical^, are
intended for procurement.

Istanbul Attack
Bloodiest Since Nazis Staged Them
Continued from Page 1
In Washington Saturday, State
Department spokesman Bruce
Ammerman declared, "We con-
demn this cowardly attack and
deeply deplore the terrible loss of
life which resulted from it."
Israeli sources saw a common
anti-Israel thread linking the
Istanbul outrage with the attemp-
ted hijacking of a Pan American
747 jet at Karachi airport Friday
which resulted in the death of 16
passengers and more than 100 in-
jured. The hijackers, they noted,
demanded to be flown to Cyprus
to effect the release of three
Palestinian terrorists imprisoned
there for the murder of three
Israelis on a yacht in Larnaca a
year ago.
THE NEVE SHALOM
Synagogue, an old Sephardic con-
gregation in the city's Beyoglu
quarter, had been closed for some
time for repairs. The Saturday
morning services marked its re-
opening. The two assailants
reportedly gained entrance by
posing as television cameramen
assigned to cover the event for
Israel television. One of them
spoke Hebrew to a guard.
According to eyewitness ac-
counts, once inside they barred
the heavy gates and opened fire
on the congregants with machine
guns and hurled grenades. Rafi
Saul, 17, who had been worshipp-
ing with his father, told reporters
later that after gunning down
most of the 30 people in the
synagogue, the attackers poured
gasoline over the dead and dying
and set them afire. The terrorists
then blew themselves up with
grenades.
Saul said he escaped by preten-
ding to be dead. His father was
killed by gunfire. Four women in
the women's gallery were injured
by flying splinters.
Radio Istanbul quoted
eyewitnesses as saying dozens of
people, haggard, in shock and
bleeding, ran into the street call-
ing for help. Ambulances and
police cars reached the area 10
minutes after the alarm was
sounded.

tacted by the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency from Paris said this was

massacre of Jews gathered in an
Istanbul synagogue by Arab ter-
rorists brings back the horror of
Nazi atrocities. This is yet another
instance of the terrorist war
against the Jewish people."
Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum, inter-
national affairs director of the
American Jewish Committee,
speaking about both the
synagogue attack and the Pan am
hijacking, said that "both these
tragedies have one thing in com-
mon: these murderers have utter
contempt for the value of human
life."
Tanenbaum said that shortly
after the synagogue massacre oc-
curred, he received a telephone
call from the Turkish Embassy in
Washington, in which the political
counselor, Candan Azer, express-
ed the condolences of the Turkish
government and condemned for-
thrightly the terrorist attacks.
Tanenbaum said that Azer told
him, "These people are not true
Moslems, they are plain killers
and we are determined to bring
them to justice."

community from Turkish Prime
Minister Turgut Ozal and the

commercial quarter were crowded
with pushcarts and shoppers at
the time.
The death toll would have been
much higher if a Bar Mitzvah
planned for Saturday had not
been postponed at the last minute.
The victims were buried at a col-
lective funeral, on Wednesday.
Israel's Minister of Religious Af-
fairs, Yosef Burg, represented his
country. The governor of Istanbul
province, Nevat Ayaz, said after a
meeting with Turkey's Chief Rab-
bi, David Asseo, that the services
would be held in the Neve Shalom
Synagogue.
According to Turkish officials,
the killers shouted "Jihad" (holy
war) as they opened fire on the
worshippers. The officials sug-
gested that the terror squad
might have belonged to the
Islamic Jihad, a gang controlled
by the extremist Lebanese Shiites
linked to the pro-Iranian Hez-
bollah (Party of God) which has
been responsible for murderous
attacks in Lebanon over the past
two years.
A SHIITE group in Beirut call-
ing itself the "Islamic Revenge"
claimed responsibility for the
synagogue attack in revenge for
Israeli attacks on Lebanese
villages. Another unknown group
calling itself the "Palestine
Revenge Organization" also
claimed responsibility.
But Israeli sources pointed to
Abu Nidal who is backed by Syria
and Libya. During the past six
years his terror squads carried out
fatal attacks on the Rue Copernic
synagogue in Paris, the main
synagogue in Rome and
synagogues in Vienna and Ant-
werp. They also attacked a Jewish
restaurant in Paris and a movie
house there during a Jewish film
festival.
Reports from Istanbul Saturday
said seven rabbis were among the
victims, also two cantors and
three tourists from Iran. Another
report named an Israeli rabbi,
Raphael Nesin, as a victim.
BUT HENRY SIEGMAN. ex
ecutive director of the American
Jewish Congress who was recent-
ly in Turkey, said on a television
interview Saturday that he had
ascertained by telephone from
Istanbul that no rabbi was killed.
The attack shocked Turkish of-
ficials. The first to reach the
scene, the Deputy Governor of
Istanbul, Hassan Ali Ozer, called
the spectacle "awful." Case-
hardened policemen were sicken-
ed by the sight of two dozen dead
and wounded, many wrapped in
prayer shawls, lying in inch-deep
pools of blood.
Turkish Prime Minister Turgut
Ozal, who called his Cabinet into
special session, issued a statement
in Ankara deploring "this heinous
act in a place of worship." He said
"All citizens of Turkey are under
the protection of the State, ir-
respective of their religion,
language or race."
He added, "We share as a na-
tion the grief and pain of all the
families of our fellow citizens who
have died because of this odious
assault and express our deepest
sympathy to them."
Israel's Charge d'Affaires in
Ankara, Yehuda Millo said: "This
outrageous and cowardly attack
on Jewish worshippers only
goes to show the nature of the
barbaric perpetrators and the
organizations the free world is
facing. It also proves that the only
way to combat international ter-
ror is the way Turkey and Israel
are doing is through resolve, firm-
ness and determination."
IN THE aftermath of the at-
tack, police swarmed through the
streets of Istanbul conducting
identity checks. Key buildings, in-
cluding the Israeli Consulate
General, were placed under heavy
security guard.
Extra police also patrolled
Ankara which has one synagogue
and a heavily fortified Israeli lega-
tion. Both were surrounded by
guards. Two synagogues in Izmir
were also under police protection.
There are 25,000 Jews in
Turkey, some 20,000 in Istanbul
and the rest in Izmir, Ankara,
Edirine and Adana. Virtually all
are Sephardic, descendants of
Spanish Jews expelled from Spain
in 1492.
The community consists mainly
of businessmen, professionals,
doctors, lawyers and scientists
who have played an important
role in Turkey's economic life.
Since the military coup six years
ago, many Jewish institutions
were revitalized.
IN MAY, 1984, Zeki Dushi
became the first Jew in over 20
years elected to the Istanbul
district council. Jews are allowed
to attend Jewish meetings abroad.
A Jewish delegation from Turkey
was present at the recent Geneva
meeting of the World Jewish Con-
gress European branch.
Apart form Egypt, Turkey is
the only Moslem nation to have
full diplomatic relations with
Israel. El Al, Israel"s national
airline, has direct flights from Tel
Aviv to Istanbul. There are also
maritime and commercial links
between the two countries and
they cooperate in many sectors.

Arab Education At New Low
JERUSALEM (JTA) A
team of Arab educators warned
Sunday (Aug. 31) a day before
the beginning of the new school
year that the situation in the
Arab educational system in Israel
has reached a new low.
At a Tel Aviv press conference,
the educators said an Arab child is
two years behind a Jewish child of
the same age in reading com-
prehension. The speakers said this
was the result of a persistent gap
in infrastructure, school classes,
teachers and books.
Thousands of teachers would be
needed to upgrade the level of
education of Arab children to that
of Jewish pupils, said Majed el-
Hajj, a sociology professor at
Haifa University and the head of
an educational committee set up
by the National Committee of
Arab Municipalities.

Gorbachev Betrays Soviet Jews
Continued from Page 1
cooperation." More significant
was the commitment extended by
the Kremlin leader in his major
policy speech at the 27th Com-
munist Party Congress this past
Feb. 25.
Among the few "fundamental
principles which Gorbachev listed
as a guide for Soviet action was
the obligation to handle a
''positive spirit of
humanitarianism questions
related to the reunification of
families ."
But neither in the Bern forum
nor in the behind-the-scenes
bilateral discussions with several
Western delegations, would the
Soviet representatives say
anything positive about allowing
exit visas to the several hundred
thousand Soviet Jews who seek to
be reunited with families in Israel.
THE CONTRARY was the
case, as indicated by the Soviet
response on May 1 to a strong
American presentation. Am-
bassador Michael Novak, head of
the U.S. delegation, after deliver-
ing an eloquent address about the
plight of Soviet Jews and par-
ticularly about the poignant fate
of the "refuseniks," distributed to
the 35 delegations a list of several
dozen of the most pressing
humanitarian emigration cases,
featurng widely-known refusenik
names.
The Soviet delegate exploded in
anger. Distribution of the list was
called "libelous" and
"McCarthyism."
In private bilateral meetings,
Soviet officials were even sharper
in their negative response. They
refused to discuss any of the
refusenik names. As far as the
USSR was concerned, emigration
was a closed book. They would not
send Jews to an alleged "war
danger zone" of Israel or to areas
of "occupied Palestine."
And they made a point of
disparaging the "drop-outs" in
Vienna who were defined con-
temptuously as mere "illegals."
IF, in previous Helsinki
Austrian Gov't. Said To Have
t
Hidden Waldheim File from UN
VIENNA (JTA) The
Austrian government had in 1971
completed a secret file on Kurt
Waldheim containing documenta-
tion of his Nazi past but withheld
it from scrutiny at the time when
Waldheim was seeking to become
Secretary General of the United
Nations, according to the
magazine Profit, which first broke
the story on Waldheim's past last
March.
Since then, the World Jewish
Congress has unearthed
numerous documents connecting
Waldheim to Nazi activities before
and during World War II.
THE SECRET Waldheim file
was reportedly assembled by
Austrian army intelligence so that
the government would be armed
with information about Waldheim
in the event that questions were
raised about him in the course of
his UN campaign.
The file, which is said to include
details of Waldheim's war service
and his pre-war membership in
Nazi organisations, "was s
favorite topic of conversation" at
army intelligence headquarters,
where "agents were proud at
their stock of compromising
material about various VIP's,"
Profit reported.
According to Profit, the
Waldheim file was to have been
transferred last year to a newly-
formed intelligence unit, but
never arrived.
Even some Austrian officials
were "stonewalled" when they
sought access to the Waldheim file
from Austrian army intelligence
in the 1970's, Profit said.
INDEED, the Israeli secret ser-
vice was tracking down
Waldheim's past at the time, ac-
cording to the magazine. "But the
Israelis could not make any head-
way in Vienna. There was nothing
to get out of the Army In-
telligence Office or from the
Chsncellory," Profit reported.
A spokesman for the WJC
deplored the Austrian govern-
ment's "scandalous" failure to
make available to the UN in 1971
the information it had gathered
about the then-candidate for the
post of UN Secretary General. "It
now appears that the United Na-
tions may have been deceived not
only by Kurt Waldheim, but by the
government of Austria as well,"
the WJC said.
meetings, notably in Madrid,
Soviet delegates linked Jewish
emigration to detente, and sug-
gested that the flow would resume
once Soviet-American relations
and considerably improved, now
references to the linkage were
negligible.
Instead, Soviet officials, in one
important private discussion, em-
phasized that further considera-
tion of Basket 3 which covers
"reunion of families" was no
lnger warranted.
Especially disturbing was a
Kremlin drive during the last few
days of the Bern meeting to
restrict all emigration and travel
issues exclusively to the 35 "par-
ticipating" states of Europe and
North America. When pressed on
"why," Soviet delegates made
clear that they wished to exclude
emigration of Jews to Israel. If
the Soviets were rebuffed at
Bern, it can be expected that they
will fay again in Vienna.
From the Gorbachev viewpoint,
Jewish emigration is dead. And he
has underscored his perspective
by reducing the emigration rate to
the lowest level in almost a
quarter of a century.
During the first six months of
this year, only 386 Jews were
allowed exit visas, which is one
quarter less than even the tiny
level of last year. The lowest mon-
thly figure came on the eve of the
Bern meeting, thereby
demonstrating Gorbachev's con-
tempt for his own "humanitarian"
commitments.
BESIDES, the Kremlin has
stepped up its campaign against
Jewish self-study groups which
aspire to perpetuate the Hebrew
cultural and Judaic traditions. The
assault upon Jewish consciousness
has the obvious aim of dissipating
emigration notions.
How to respond to the serious
thrust of the Kremlin st the
credibility of the Helsinki Accord
is of urgent and vital importance
to the Jewish community and to
the democratic world. At stake is
the future of Soviet Jewry and its
fundamental and legitimate right
to be reunited with kin in Israel.
Linkage must be at the center of
Western strategy at Vienna just
as it stands at the heart of the
Helsinki accord. At Bern, Soviet
delegates privately spoke of the
need to move from Basket 3 to
Basket 2 covering trade. It is up
to the West to make it clear that
progress in the trade and other
Helsinki areas depends upon pro-
gress covering 8oviet Jewish
emigration.

JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The coalition crisis
threatened by Ariel
Sharon's remarks faded
Monday as swiftly as it
arose 24 hours earlier when
the Likud hardliner implied
that the terrorist attack on
an Istanbul synagogue
Saturday was the result of
"weakness" shown by the
Israeli government.
Sharon sent a letter of retrac-
tion, published here Sunday night,
which Labor Party Ministers said
entirely fulfilled Premier Shimon
Peres' requirement for a full
recantation. Likud circles seemed
relieved that a showdown was
averted. But this was coupled
with embarrassment over
Sharon's behavior.
PERES CANCELLED Sun-
day's weekly Cabinet meeting and
demanded that Sharon retract
and apologize for his allegations
on a Saturday radio interview that
"the unceasing pursuit of dubious
and baseless peace plans at a time
when our enemies are waging an
unending war against us con-
tributed to the weakening of
Israel's shield. and has exposed
Jews abroad even more to
Palestininan terror."
Sharon, who is Minister of Com-
merce and Industry, stated in his
letter to Peres:
"There is no connection bet-
ween the decisions of the govern-
ment and what happened in Istan-
bul. There is no connection bet-
ween our sincere and general
striving for peace and the murder
of Jews. I have never once believ-
ed that this had to be the answer
to the PLO's murder and terror
organisations to the Israel
government's desire for peace, as
has been attributed to me. It is
they who, due to their murderous
nature, have chosen that course."
THE LETTER added: "We
must stand stalwart against the
PLO's terror which is backed by
Syria and Libya. Failure on our
part to stand united against that
terror will only encourage its ac-
tivities ... At this very moment,
the entire world is awaiting the
reaction of the Israel government.
We must stand united against the
dangers which confront us."
Drug Abuse Reported High
Among Many Israeli Prisoners
By MARLENE GOLDMAN
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Drug abuse in Israeli
prisons is at a higher pro-
portion than in the general
population, according to
Raphael Suissa, the Com-
missioner of Israel Prison
Services. About 1,200 of
some 9,000 inmates in
Israeli prisons are currently
using drugs, he said.
Of the 9,000 inmates, 3,000 are
Arab terrorists, and 6,000 are
Israelis, 1,000 of whom are Israeli
Arabs. Most of the prisoners in-
volved with drugs are non-
terrorists and Israeli Arabs bet-
ween the ages of 17 to 25, Suissa
said. The terrorists are too
disciplined and organized to get
addicted to drugs, he added.
ABOUT 89 percent of the
criminals involved with drugs are
from Sephardic families, accor-
ding to Suissa, the former mayor
of Mazkeret Batya near Haifa.
"In the Jewish faith, the family
is something central," he explain-
ed. "The family in Arabic coun-
tries is strong the father is like
a king. Most of those who im-
migrated to Israel in 1949-50 were
old, and their children learned the
language quickly, while the
parents couldn't understand daily
life. They relied on the kids, and
the children became independent
and grew up on the streets. They
became active in crime."
The Ashkenazim, on the other
hand, had smaller families, Suissa
said, and the children immigrated
alone to the kibbutzim. "The
parents were also more educated
than the Sephardic parents,"
Suissa noted, "and they quickly
found work and continued the
strong family."
SUISSA, who became commis-
sioner 1% years ago, believes
there is a need to improve the
rehabilitation system for the
Israeli inmates. He recently
traveled to the United States to
observe American prisons and at
the rehabilitation programs and to
meet officials at prisons and with
prison officials and the head-
quarters of the Federal Prison
Service in Washington.
"I like to see every inmate as a
human," Suissa said, speaking
through an interpreter, Gen.
Joshua Caapi, a representative to
the U.S. of Israeli police and
prisons. "I'd like to make life in
prison more comfortable," he
continued.
Presently, in Israel, the budget
allows for the treatment of only
200 prisoners. In order to treat all
1,200 drug users, Suissa said the
prisons would need $1 million an-
nually but are now receiving about
one-sixth of that amount.
The fight in Israel against drugs
is two-pronged. Israeli police are
trying to stop drug trafficking
which is prevalent around the
Lebanon border where hashish is
sold. "Hashish is used in Egypt to
our south," Suissa said, "and we
are in the middle, so part arrives
in our area."
SINCE THE 1973 Yom Kippur
War, the drug problem in Israel
has continued to escalate, he
noted. For the past 10 years, the
most accessible drugs have been
marijuana, hashish and heroin,
Suissa said.
"Cocaine and crack haven't ar-
rived in Israel yet," according to
Suissa, but he noted that Israel is
always at least five or six years
behind the U.S., and "unfor-
tunately in a few years I think
we'll face the same problem."
A second front in the attack
against the drug problem is the
prison service, which attempts to
rehabilitate those users who end
up in prison.
Suissa insisted that with proper
treatment, many of the users can
solve their addiction problem. The
prison program includes a
withdrawal process and
psychological treatment.
Suissa, on his first visit to
prisons outside Israel, found U.S.
prisons to be organized, large,
clean and comfortable as com-
pared to prisons in Israel. "Our
prisons are old. We got them from
the British when they left in 1948,
and the old buildings are not
suitable," he explained.

Cairo Summit
It Appears To Have Folded
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The much-awaited summit
meeting between Premier
Shimon Peres and Egyptian
President Hosni Mubarak,
which was to have taken
place this week in Alexan-
dria, appears to be in
danger of folding by
last-minute technical snags
between the two countries
in negotiations over the ar-
bitration agreement for
Taba, the 25-acre Sinai
beach front claimed by both
Israel and Egypt.
David Kimche, director-general
of Israel's Foreign Ministry, held
intensive meetings with top Egyp-
tian officials and U.S. Assistant
Secretary of State Richard Mur-
phy Thursday (Sept. 4), in a last-
ditch attempt to salvage the
foundering summit.
MEANWHILE, high-ranking
Reagan Administration officials in
Washington said that Secretary of
State George Shultz, reportedly
disappointed with the lack of pro-
gress between Israel and Egypt,
would not travel to the Middle
East after all in an attempt to fur-
ther efforts that could lead to
peace talks.
Meeting in Cairo, Kimche had
hoped to wrap up the arbitration
document by early this week. The
Egyptians have consistently main-
tained that a completed document
must precede the Sept. 10-11
summit.
Two problems delayed the sign-
ing of the document: designation
of the borders of Taba and a list of
three foreign arbitrators to join
one Israeli and one Egyptian legal
expert.
Israeli officials asserted that the
Egyptians dragged their feet in
the talks with Kimche. Kimche
claimed in a radio interview that

Brazilian senators and deputies,
54 of them of Arab descent.
On a more positive note, the
report said Israel continues to be a
significant source of technical
assistance for Latin America.
Representatives from three Cen-
tral American countries Belize,
El Salvador and Panama
visited Israel recently in order to
study Israeli agriculture and sign
various treaties of cooperation.
In addition, President Julio
Maria Sanguinetti of Uruguay
spent four days on an official visit
to Israel in early May, the first
Uruguayan president to visit the
Jewish State. Also visiting Israel
for a week last June were three
members of the Bolivian Parlia-
ment, representing the three ma-
jor political parties in Bolivia.

the Egyptians had reneged on
previously-articulated positions.
"I thought I could no longer be
surprised in this long and arduous
negotiation," he said. "But the
Egyptians have surprised me."
EGYPT, meanwhile, sent top
Presidential aide Osama El-Baz to
Amman, Jordan, last Wednesday
for urgent talks with King Hus-
sein prior to the king's departure
for Europe. This was the latest in
a series of high-level consultations
by the two countries designed to
evolve a common position on the
Palestinian issue in advance of an
Israeli-Egyptian summit.
Murphy was shuttling last week
between Israel, Egypt and Jordan
in what Peres said was an effort
to explore prospects for a joint
peace declaration.
Western diplomats in Tel Aviv
have said that the United States
hoped to persuade Hussein to en-
dorse ideas that could form the
basis of a joint statement at a
Peres-Mubarak summit.
Peres told a journalists' meeting
last Wednesday in Tel Aviv that
the greatest obstacle for Jordan in
the peace talks was determining
which Palestinians should par-
ticipate in a joint Jordanian-
Palestinian delegation. Both
Israel and Jordan agreed that an
international forum would accom-
pany any direct negotiations, but
that the forum would have no
power to impose solutions on the
Israel-Arab conflict.
The Premier described the sum-
mit meeting as trying to "for-
mulate strategy for the next two
or three years."

U.S. Aide
Flew To Amman To See Hussein
Friday, September 12, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 11
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
U.S. Assistant Secretary of
State Richard Murphy left
here for Amman Tuesday
morning (Sept. 2) in order to
meet Jordan's King Hussein
before he left on a private
trip to Great Britain.
Murphy flew into Israel Mon-
day evening and met late into the
night with Prime Minister Shimon
Peres. Murphy was due back here
Wednesday for talks with Vice
Premier Yitzhak Shamir and
other officials and was expected
to shuttle to Cairo and perhaps
again to Amman for further talks.
Murphy's visit was seen as
preparatory to an anticipated
meeting between Peres and Egyp-
tian President Hosni Mubarak,
tentatively scheduled for this
week but which now seems off.
ISRAELI AND U.S. officials
are not divulging substantive in-
formation on Murphy's mission,
but informed observers believe he
is seeking common ground bet-
ween the three nations on terms
for an international preparatory
conference on the Middle East.
Such a conference, with pro-
tagonists and major outside
powers participating, would lay
ground rules for an eventual
peace conference. This method
was tried in Cairo in December,
1977. Following President Anwar
Sadat's visit to Jerusalem, the
U.S. and the UN sought to con-
vene a preparatory conference
designed to pave the way to a
resumption of the short-lived 1973
Geneva peace conference. The
meeting, however, was boycotted
by all Arab parties save Egypt.
Among the issues believed to be
under discussion with Murphy is
Richard Murphy
the decision-making process at
such a conference. Israel insists
that no decision be forced upon
her by a majority vote, as the ma-
jority would be weighted against
her.
ANOTHER unresolved issue is
Palestinian representation. As for
the past two years, the key lies
with Hussein: Is he prepared to
cooperate in the creation of a
Jordanian-Palestinian representa-
tion no', necessarily approved by
the PI 0?
Sorre observers in Israel believe
Jorda i's reinvigorated interest in
West Bank Affairs reflects a
determination to cultivate an
alternative Palestinian leadership,
following Hussein's open rift with
PLO Chairman Yasir Arafat in
February.
High Court Says Boys, Girls
May Sit Together in School
JERUSALEM (JTA) Girls
and boys may sit together, after
all, on the benches of a religious
school in the Ramot neighborhood
in Jerusalem despite a Ministry
of Education directive to separate
the sexes the High Court of
Justice has ruled.
The court issued over the
weekend an "order nisi," which
obliges the Ministry and the prin-
cipal of the school to explain
within 15 days why they should
not reverse their decision to
separate the sexes at the request
of parents who opposed the
separation.
The separation order was issued
at the end of the last school vear.
following the holding of a referen-
dum among the parents.

But there has been no sign on
the diplomatic front that Jordan is
finally prepared to enter the peace
process even in a preparatory
forum with Israel.
Meanwhile, Minister-Without-
Portfolio Ezer Weizman prepared
to meet with Premier Bettino
Craxi and other Italian figures on
the second leg of a briefing mis-
sion in Europe on behalf of Peres.
On Monday (Sept. 1), Weizman
met for 90 minutes with
Chancellor Helmut Kohl of West
Germany.
WHILE THE Israeli envoy in-
sisted to reporters in Bonn that
his purpose was purely to
familiarize Israel's friends with
ongoing Mideast developments,
some observers here believe Weiz-
man was also seeking European
financial support for economic
projects in the Mideast which
Peres believes would aid the pro-
spects of political progress.
Jordan's five-year development
plan for the West Bank is certain-
ly one such project.
Much, however, will depend on
the positions of Jordan's King
Hussein, and it is within that con-
text that observers are studying
the upcoming Murphy mission and
Weizman's hitherto unannounced
trip to Europe.
Hussein was in London last
week for a private visit and
medical treatment.
While there is virtually no pro-
spect of Jordanian participation at
the Israeli-Egyptian summit, any
concrete progress achieved by
Peres and Mubarak would heavily
depend on Jordan's vicarious
cooperation.
HENCE, according to well-
placed observers, Mubarak's
thorough coordination with Jor-
dan in advance of the summit: the
President and the King met in
Amman, Jordan, and Jordanian
Premier Zaid Rifai was in Cairo
for further talks.
Weizman's talks in Europe
even if he does not meet secretly
with Hussein are seen as part of
Peres' effort to persuade the
neighboring moderate king to par-
ticipate in the new diplomatic
initiative.
Fashion Doyenne Dead at 82
TEL AVIV (JTA) Fini
Leitersdorf, the doyenne of
Israel's fashion designers, died
Aug. 31 at the age of 82. She
drowned while swimming in the
garden pool at the home of her ar-
chitect son, Toni, in Savyon. The
funeral was held in Kfar
Shmaryahu.
The Hungarian-born
Leitersdorf was the widow of ar-
tist Yohanan Simon. She began
working in Tel Aviv in 1940 and
designed theater costumes,
dresses, men's wear, shoes,
jewelry and even buttons. An ex-
hibition of her designs was held in
the Tel Aviv Museum two years
ago.
Leitersdorf s best-known work
is probably the desert coat she
designed for the desert coat she
designed for the Maskit folk art
shops 30 years ago and which has
remained a steady seller-
