Economic News is Upbeat; Coalition Gov't Divided
economic good news of recent
days has produced a sharp
divergence of views between
Premier Shimon Peres and
Finance Minister Yitzhak Modai
over economic policy in the mon-
ths ahead. Labor and Likud are
also clashing bitterly, with each
unity coalition partner accusing
the other of trying to manipulate
the economy to benefit its future
election prospects.
Peres, a strong supporter of
Modai's austerity economic pro-
gram until now, asserted recently
that with the inflation rate at a
record low of 1.3 percent in
January, the time has come to
ease restrictions and strive, for
economic growth and higher
Modai, a Likud Liberal, insists
that many more months of
economic restraint are needed if
the recovery program launched
last August is to be a lasting suc-
cess. "If the (money) presses start
rolling again, I shall quit," Modai
threatened in a television
Within the Labor Party, allega-
tions are mounting that Modai
and Likud are deliberately keep-
ing a lid on the economy now in
order to be able to ease restric-
tions dramatically after Peres
turns over the Premiership to
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir,
the Likud leader, next Oct. 13, as
required by the Labor-Likud coali-
tion agreement.
Likud politicians, for their part,
accuse Peres of seeking a coalition
crisis to break up the unity
government in order to avoid the
mandatory rotation of leadership.
They charge further that Labor
wants to ease the squeeze on
government spending in order to
pour money into economically ail-

ing Histaarut enterprises such as
Solel Boneh, the giant construc-
tion cooperative, Kupat Holim,
the Histadrut sick-fund, and the
Labor-affiliated moshavim.
In a television interview, Peres
said, "It is not a sin to defend
Histadrut firms ... I do not want
unemployment to break out in the
country." He denied he wants to
increase the State budget, but in-
sisted that some government sav-
ings should be channeled into in-
dustry to promote growth. "Part
of it should be used for investment
and part returned to the citizens,"
he said. The government in fact
announced moderate cuts in fuel
prices. Gasoline is down three per-
cent and heating oil five percent.
Modai, in a speech to the
Association of Chambers of Com-
merce in Tel Aviv recently, warn-
ed, "we cannot help failing enter-
prises. The labor Alignment
wants to waste the meager
resources we have in increase the
expenditures of the education,
health, agriculture and defense
ministries," all headed by
Peres told a Labor Party
meeting in Haifa that he wanted
to divert $500 million "saved by
the government" to aid viable in-
dustries that were suffering tran-
sient difficulties. He dismissed the
Likud claims he was seeking to in-
ject funds into failing Histadrut
The savings have been affected
by external developments for
which neither coalition partner
can claim credit the plunging
price of oil on the world market
and the decline of the U.S. Dollar
against European currencies.

Human Rights a Complex
Issue In the West Bank
Israel's human rights problems
are largely due to the "tensions"
between Israeli authorities and
the Arab residents of the areas
taken in the 1967 Six-Day War,
according to the State Depart-
ment's annual reports on human
rights throughout the world.
This assessment in the Depart-
ment's 10th annual "Country
Reports on Human Rights Prac-
tices" released recently is essen-
tially the same as has been made
in the past. The 1,140-page
report, which is mandated by Con-
gress, covers human rights condi-
tions in all countries that are
members of the United Nations.
"The complex human rights
situation in the occupied ter-
ritories is largely the result of the
fact that since the 1967 war and in
the absence of a peace settlement,
the territories remain under
military administration and there
is friction between occupation
authorities and the Palestinian
population which opposes Israeli
control," the 1985 report said.
"Among the symptoms of fric-
tion are active resistance to the
occupation, including episodes of
violence, sometimes encouraged
by outside extremist groups. Fric-
tion also arises from security
measures taken by Israel to
counteract terrorist acts and
threats of terrorism, and to
counter other kinds of activities
which the Israeli authorities
assert endanger security."
The report adds that "another
cause of friction is the introduc-
tion of civilian settlers, although
settlement activity has slowed."
In addition, the report noted
that "frictions are exacerbated by
some Israeli political elements
who advocate annexation or per-
manent Israeli control of the ter-
ritories as well as by the refusal of
the principal Palestinian organiza-
tions to recognize the State Of
The report also pointed to "a
marked increase in violent acts in
1985" against both Jews and
Arabs in the West Bank. "One or
another faction of the PLO as well
as a variety of PLO dissident
groups claimed responsibility for
nearly all acts of violence against
the IDF or Israeli civilians," the
report said. But it adds that most
of the violence "appears,
however, to have been spon-
taneous and local."
Israel itself is praised as a
parliamentary democracy
"characterized by its openness
and by its wideranging and lively
public debate of all issues."
The report also contains infor-
mation on the conditions of Jews
in other countries.
On Syria's 3,000-4,000 Jews,
the report said they are free to
practice their religion, and their
general situation "has improved
in recent years, despite continu-
ing uncertainty over the com-
munity's future" and they enjoy
"a relatively good standard of liv-
ing, access to higher education,
and entrance into the

Laborites charge that Modai has
been quietly sitting on govern-
ment funds to be able to pour
them into West Bank settlements
as soon as Shamir takes over the
reins of government. Such
arguments are directed at the
development towns in Israel,
which have been starved of funds
this past year.
There was an exceptionally
vitriolic Cabinet meeting recently.
Modai responded angrily to
Health Minister Mordechai Gur
who had called him a "liar" and to
Energy Minister Moshe Shahal
who accused him of deliberately
withholding government funds
from his ministry. He told Gur, "I
am sick and tired of your fat, self-
satisfied face" and suggested that
Shahal be given a daily newspaper
column to "sound off."
Modai apologized the next day
for "certain expressions at the
Cabinet table. A furious Peres
vowed on television that he would
not allow such acrimonious ex-
changes as long as he is Premier.
This is not the first time an
economic debate has taken on par-
tisan political coloration. Well-
placed sources close to Peres told
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that they could not envisage the
unity government collapsing over
economic policy, especially since
Peres himself has been closely
identified with that policy.
The Premier's argument for
easing restrictions to promote
economic growth was gravely
weakened recently when Prof.
Michael Bruno, one of Israel's
leading economists, warned in a
telephone interview from London
that the achievements of the
economic plan which Bruno
helped draft last summer would
be threatened if "growth" became
an excuse for easing up too soon.
He said real growth should come
"naturally" and the economy was
beginning to show signs of
"natural" growth.
Meanwhile, about 200 mayors
and employees of development
towns demonstrated outside the
Prime Minister's Office Sunday
against what they said was the
Treasury's failure to keep its pro-
mises to provide funds to ease
their financial crises. They charg-
ed that the government created
the situation in past years by
deferring local budget allocations
thereby forcing the towns to take
high interest loans.
The protest was bi-partisan.
Yossi Peres, Laborite Mayor of
Tiberias, said the development
towns would go bankrupt because
they will be unable to pay their
employers or suppliers. Meir
Shitrit, a Likud MK who is Mayor
of Yavne, said a mere $34 million
was needed to ease the crisis and
could be raised easily, if the
government, for example, levied
the full statutory income tax on
company and government cars for
senior officials. Peres promised to
appoint a committee to review
their demanHo
Myra learned that funeral service
between Florida and New York was
less expensive than she thought.
Thanks toTheGUARDIAN PLANprogram.
Myra believed in being prepared.
That's why she looked into buying cemetery property in Florida
where she had retired. Her two sisters, her children and her grandchildren
still lived in the Mew York area. And if the truth be known, Myra would have
preferred to have funeral services held in Mew York. But she thought that
would cost too much.
Luckily Myra learned about The QUARDIAM PLAM-the insurance
funded, prearranged funeral program. She liked what she heard, so she
decided to talk to The QUARDIAM PLAM counselor. He told her about
RIVERSIDE and the other members of the guardian family of Jewish
and JEPPER who honor The QUARDIAM PLAM program in Florida and Mew
York. Myra decided that The QUARDIAM PLAM program would make things
a lot easier on her family up north.
So Myra settled all the details in advance with the help of her
counselor. Everything was arranged as she wished. And at a cost she felt
was right for her.
She feels better because now she has more time to concentrate
on living.

Not Just a Film
Near East Report
Sitting through the 9V* hour film Shook (Hebrew for holocaust)
is an excruciating experience. An hour into the film which is be-
ing called the definitive documentary about the Holocaust I
wanted to escape. But walking out of Shook seems like a betrayal.
One can't help but feel that if the six million had to live the
Holocaust and die in it the least we can do is watch a film.
It isn't easy though. Director and producer Claude Lanzmann
subjects his viewers to horrifying images. They are not of the
dead. The entire film was made in the 1980s and no archival
footage is included. Its horrifying images are of people in Poland
and Germany today who seem as if they would perpetrate another
mass murder now if they had the chance and if a sizable Jewish
population could still be found in eastern Europe.
Other jarring images are of the places where the Holocaust took
place. Lanzmann takes the viewer to railway stations and death
camps. A train pulling into the Auschwitz station is shown again
and again. This particular shot leaves the viewer with the sicken-
ing sensation that he is on the train. The image and its seeming-
ly endless repetition has the feeling of a nightmare. You want
to wake up. You want to get out of that theater. But you can't.
Shook is not, by any stretch of the imagination, entertainment.
It is, rather, entertainment's opposite. It is oppressive. It takes
the almost meaningless term "Holocaust" and breaks it down in-
to its component parts. Six million people were not just whooshed
away by a storm. No, they were killed in a mechanized, almost in-
dustrial process. Shook shows how it was done. And it shows that
the hatred that made it possible still exists. See it. But don't ex-
pect even the satisfaction of easy tears.
One of Shook's main points is that the Holocaust was unique.
After seeing it, one cannot casually compare other tragedies to
what befell European Jews between 1933 and 1945. In the Feb.
17 New Republic, writer and survivor Primo Levi explains that
uniqueness. He says that he would not even compare Stalin's
Gulag to the Nazi death camps. The Nazi camps were "gigantic
death machines. Gas chambers and crematories were deliberately
planned to destroy lives and human bodies on a scale of millions.
The appalling record belongs to Auschwitz with 24,000 dead in a
single day, in August 1944."
The Soviet camps represent different "models of hell." The
"principal difference lies in the finality." Levi writes that "one
entered the German camps never to emerge. No outcome but
death was foreseen." In the Soviet camps, the death of prisoners
was not "expressly sought. It was a very frequent occurrence,
and it was tolerated with brutal indifference, but basically it was
not expressly intended. It was a by-product, rather, of hunger,
cold, infections, hard labor." He says that it is this difference that
led to a 30 percent mortality figure in the Soviet camps but to a 98
percent death rate in the Nazi camps.
Levi makes an important distinction. Nazi Germany's slaughter
of the Jews was not a war atrocity; not was it similar to the mass
incarcerations common in other totalitarian states. For the Nazis,
the slaughter of the Jews was an end in itself. Jews were not im-
prisoned to silence them or to stop them from opposing the
system. Jews were incarcerated as a prelude to their mass exter-
mination. There was nothing Jews could do no religious prac-
tice they could renounce or ideology they might adopt that
would save them or their children from the gas chambers. This is
where the Holocaust, the Shook, differs from most of the cen-
tury's other horrors. The Jews of the Holocaust sought no
"human rights" except to live and that is the right that was
denied them.
But, of course, we know all that. Why would we need to see a
9Vr hour film like Shook? For Primo Levi, the answer is simple: so
that we don't forget. "Because what happened could happen
again." Another murderous force "with its trail of intolerance,
abuse, and servitude, can be born outside our country and im-
ported into it, walking on tiptoes and calling itself by other names
... At that point, wise counsel no longer serves, and one must
find the strength to resist. But then, too, the memory of what
happened in the h- if Kurope. not very long ago, can serve as
support and wan At this point, all we can do is remember.

Jordan Arms Sale Shelved
By M. J. Rosenberg
Near East Report
The Reagan Administration has
decided not to go ahead with its
$1.5 billion arms sale to Jordan. It
had been planning to notify Con-
gress of its intent to make the sale
on March 1. Instead, it backed
down in the face of strong Con-
gressional opposition.
Senate Majority Leader Robert
Dole (R., Kans.) and Senate
Richard Lugar (R., Ind.) were key
figures in convincing the Ad-
ministration that a resolution op-
posing the sale would have had the
backing of at least 80 Senators.
The Administration was persuad-
ed that going ahead with an un-
popular sale and perhaps being
defeated on the Hill would have
harmed both the Administration
and Republicans running for the
House and Senate in this year's
election. In a letter to the Senate
and House leadership, Secretary
of State George Shultz wrote that
the Administration will only
"proceed with the Jordan arms
sale after affording Congress ade-
quate time" to review "the issues
Dole said that "the Administra-
tion's decision not to proceed with
the sale at this time is both wise
and necessary wise because it
preserves one of the most impor-
tant points of leverage we have at
our disposal to encourage Jor-
dan ... to work toward good-faith
negotiations; necessary because it
was clear that there was over-
whelming skepticism in the Con-
gress skepticism which, frank-
ly, I share about the impact of a
sale at this time."
Dole seemed to be suggesting
that while shelving the sale is a
good thing, the lack of progress on
the Jordan peace front is not. It
has now been one year since King
Hussein and PLO chief Yasir
Arafat reached their famous Feb.
11 "accord," one that supposedly
included a go-ahead for Israeli-
Jordanian-Palestinian negotia-
tions. Nevertheless, despite the
hoopla, nothing substantial has
happened. Both Prime Minister
Shimon Peres and King Hussein
have made optimistic statements.
But the Jordanian position has
altered very little. The King will
not join talks without Arafat's ap-
proval and, so far, Arafat is hang-
ing tough.
The postponement of the Jordan
arms deal will allow all parties to
focus on what the peace process is
supposed to be about: negotia-
tions, not weaponry. If the King's
real goal was (as many in Israel
believe)) arms from Washington
rather than peace with Jerusalem,
this round of the peace process
will die quickly and he will con-
tinue to snuggle up to Damascus.
If peace is his ultimate goal, there
is no reason for him not to join
negotiations with Peres, especial-
ly since Peres has accepted Jor-
dan's demand for negotiations
under international auspices.
In Israel attention is shifting
away from the still-theoretical
peace with Jordan to the sup-
posedly real peace with Egypt. A
few weeks ago it appeared that
Egypt and Israel had agreed on a
common approach to the Taba
border dispute. There was talk
about a summit between Presi-
dent Hosni Mubarak and Shimon
Peres and the return of Egypt's
ambassador to Tel Aviv.
It isn't happening. Instead,
Egypt has found reasons to object
to the proposed conciliation-
arbitration procedure which
would resolve the dispute over the
1,000-yard Taba beach. More im-
portant, however, is that Egypt
continues to cite reasons for not
living up to the Camp David peace
even if the Taba question is resolv-
ed. In an interview on Israel radio,
Egypt's Charge d'Affaires in
Israel, Mohammed Baassiouni,
said that there are many obstacles
to normalization. "The Lebanese
war had a very negative effect on
Egyptian-Israeli relations. The
practices on the West Bank and
Gaza, especially what is taking
place in Al-Aksa mosque are also
considered negative factors affec-
ting Egyptian-Israeli relations."
He said that only "the removal of
these obstacles" would "restore
normal Egyptian-Israeli rela-
tions." As for Taba, it is a "major
obstacle" but far from the only
Israelis are becoming increas-
ingly frustrated with Egypt as
they watch Cairo raise the ante
for resuming full ties over and
over again. It's almost hard to
recall that there was a time
back in 1983 when Cairo sug-
gested that it would resume the
Camp David process when Israel
pulled out of Lebanon. That is
now ancient history as Egyptians
indicate that even the Palestinian
problem may have to be resolved
before they live up to the terms of
Camp David.
On Feb. 3, Tom Friedman
reported in the New York Times
that Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir had received a warm
reception a day earlier when he
blasted Egypt for seeking to im-
prove its Arab ties at the expense
of the Israel-Egypt peace. The
surprising thing was not that the
Likud leader met a favorable
response for his attack on Cairo.
The surprise was that his audience
was a left-wing kibbutz in the
Negev. This only attests to the
fact that Egypt's retreat from
Camp David is disillusioning all
Israelis left and right about
the nature of Arab-Israel peace.
This hardly bodes well for the

Soviet Jewry Update
Friday, February 28, 1988/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 5
Shcharansky, Soviet Jews and the Future
By David A. Harris
Deputy Director
Relation! Department
American Jewish
Together with millions of other
people around the world, I spent
several days holding my breath,
praying silently and passing each
hour with a radio glued to one ear.
Could this latest report, unlike so
many previous others, of the im-
minent release of Anatoly
Shcharansky be accurate? Would
he, a moral giant of the Jewish
people and a name synonymous
with the struggle for repatriation
to Israel, finally be released
almost nine years after his arrest?
Would the unimaginable suffer-
ing and agony he endured in
Soviet prisons and labor camps be
over? Would he finally be permit-
ted to join his wife A vital, whose
unstinting devotion to her hus-
band's cause has inspired people
everywhere, after 11 ft years of
separation? Would his elderly
mother's courage and
perseverance in support of her
beleaguered son no longer be
necessary? Would the unstinting
efforts of President Reagan and
Secretary of State Shultz,
members of Congress, foreign
leaders and private citizens
everywhere at last yield results?
Would Anatoly Shcharansky's
profound faith, stated so eloguent-
ly during his trial in Moscow in Ju-
ly 1978, finally be redeemed? At
that time, he said: "For more than
2,000 years the Jewish people, my
people, have been dispersed. But
wherever they are, wherever
Jews are found, every year they
have repeated, 'Next year in
Jerusalem.' Now, when I am fur-
ther than ever from my people,
from A vital, facing many years of
imprisonment, I say, turning to
my people, my A vital: Next year
in Jerusalem." Would it be this
year, and not next, in Jerusalem?
We rejoice in the news of his
release and reunification with
A vital. We are humbled by his in-
describable courage, and inspired
by his faith. At the same time, it is
difficult to overlook the fact that
his release, as welcome and impor-
tant as it truly is, is not necessari-
ly the result of an altruistic,
humanitarian gesture on the
Soviets' part. Rather, it serves
four very concrete purposes for
the Kremlin:
It is part of an exchange involv-
ing spies, hence permitting
Moscow to maintain its original
contention that Shcharansky was
in the employ of the CIA (Note:
Shcharansky always denied the
espionage charge. Had he yielded
to extreme Soviet pressure to ad-
mit to the accusation, he might
well have been released years

Is Shcharansky's release, never-
theless, a genuine signal by the
Kremlin? As much as one would
like to believe so, the prevailing
condition of Soviet Jewry gives
serious pause. Consider:
The emigration rate which
was inching upwards from a mere
29 in August 1985 to 128 in
November, the month of the sum-
mit, has now reversed direction.
92 people left in December and on-
ly 79 in January.

On January 17, seven young
Jews in the Leningrad area par-

celebration. The party was
disrupted by the local police who
accompanied the group to the
local police station, beating a few
along the way and threatenig
them with expulsion from univer-
sity and military conscription.
They were interrogated about
their Jewish activities and study
of Torah, and accused of holding a
private religious ceremony.
Inna Meiman, the wife of
mathematician Naum Meiman,
has been suffering from a growing
tumor on the back of her neck,
near her spinal column, for more
than two years. The only apparent
remaining hope for treatment,
after four painful and ultimately
unsuccessful operations in
Moscow, is at one of a few on-
cological centers in the West
which have the sophisticated
equipment to treat the cancerous
growth. Despite countless ap-
peals, the Kremlin has adamantly
refused the Meimans permission
to travel to the West for medical
care, citing Professor Meiman's
classified work work performed
more than 30 years ago!
And despite all the focus on
Elena Bonner's visit to the West
for medical treatment and a visit
with her family in Boston, she will
soon rejoin her husband, Andrei
Sakharov, in an exile that, in
everything but name, is the
equivalent of imprisonment in
remote Gorky. Sakharov, a non-
Jew, is truly one of the outstan-
ding figures of this century an
extraordinarily courageous man
dedicated to peace and to human
rights, and a righteous Gentile if
ever one lives today.
How, then, does one interpret
current Kremlin policy? It is to re-
main tough at home as a signal
that no loosening of the reins is in
the offing. On the other hand, for
Western consumption, it pursues
a two-prong strategy. First, the
staggered release of a few promi-
nent figure's, such as long-term
refuseniks Mark Nashpita, Yakov
Mesh, Eliyahu Esaas and Yakov
Gorodetsky, succeeds in
generating positive publicity for
the Soviets at relatively little cost
and serves equally to deflect at-
tenton from the stark reality fac-
ing the Soviet Jewish community.
Second, the traditional Soviet
campaign of disinformation
abroad continues apace. In this
regard, events of the last eyar are
1) In Januai Soviet State
Bank Chairman Alkhimov told
U.S. Undersecretary of Com-
merce Olmer that if good relations
with the U.S. were restored,
50,000 Jewish emigrants annually
would be "no problem." After a
flurry of Western press attention
and U.S. interest in studying the
apparent opening, the Soviets
subsequently denied the story.
2) Three months later, optimism
was again generated when the
New York Times carried a front-
page story from Moscow that as
many as 1,000 Jews, including
long-term refuseniks, were
reportedly being summoned to
OVIR (visa office) and being
issued exit visas, but alas, nothing
3)In July, at a meeting with the
Israeli envoy in Paris, Soviet Am-
bassador Vorontsov indicated his
country's preparedness to move
forward on diplomatic relations in
exchange for Soviet participation
in the Middle East peace process
and Israeli flexibility on the Golan
Heights issue. Much media atten-
tion was given the story, but no
real progress has occurred.
4) Reports, originating in
Moscow, of an imminent release
of 15,000-24,000 Soviet Jews and
their transfer to Israel via War-
saw, have appeared in many
Anglo-Jewish papers this fall. To
date, though, nothing has
5) During his visit to France in
October, Soviet leader Gorbachev
addressed the emigration ques-
tion by noting that the Soviet
Union "solves" the problem of
family reunification, refusing per-
mission "only where state secrets
are involved." In such cases, add-
ed Gorbachev, applicants can
leave after waiting between five
and ten years. Despite these well-
publicized assertions, the several
thousand long-term refusenik*
with close relatives in Israel anc
elsewhere, whose first applica
tions were submitted as long ag<
as 1970, offer ample proof of th
inaccuracy of the claim. And, i
shrewd ana sophisticated com-
municator, Gorbachev also used
the occasion to speak of Soviet
Jews as a "privileged nationali-
ty," yet another element of the
Soviet disinformation campaign.
6) Finally, there was the New
York Times front-page story on
December 26, headlined "Russian
Said to Predict Israeli Ties And
Increased Jewish Emigration,"
referring to a Soviet Embassy of-
ficial in Washington. TASS, the
Soviet news agency, later denied
the story.
If Moscow genuinely seeks to
send an unambiguously positive
message, it should follow the ad-
vice of Anthony Lewis New York
Times, March 14, 1985): "What is
needed as a signal is evident: not
words but convincing action by
the Soviet Union." What would be
convincing action? In my view, it
would mean significant progress
towards the goals of the institu-
tion of an orderly of repatriation
to Israel and reunification of
families with a definite time limit
on those cases involving previous
security clearance, a resolution of
the prisoner of conscience and
long-term refusenik cases, an end
to harassment of Jewish activists
and arrests on trumped-up
charges, and a guarantee of the
religious and cultural rights for
Jews (including the right to study
Hebrew) given to other Soviet
If movement can be truly made
in these areas, it will doubtless be
welcomed in this country and con-
tribute to further progress in
other dimensions of the bilateral
relationship, not to speak of a
more general improvement in the
"atmospherics" that can play
such an important role in shaping
the direction of superpower

Nazi War Criminal Extradited
By Kevin Freeman
more than 30 years, numerous
legal proceedings and two formal
extradition requests, accused war
criminal Andrija Artukovic
recently boarded a plane bound
for Yugoslavia where he will face
charges stemming from his ac-
tivities as a senior official of the
Nazi puppet state of Croatia dur-
ing World War II.
Artukovic departed from Ken-
nedy International Airport after
Supreme Court Justice William
Rehnquist, without comment,
refused to block his extradition.
The Tanjug News Agency, the of-
ficial Yugoslav news agency in
Belgrade, reported that Artukovic
had arrived. The news agency
said, "Artukovic was transferred
to Yugoslavia and turned over to
court authorities."
In Washington the State
Department said the accused war
criminal was surrendered to
Yugoslav authorities who return-
ed him to Zagreb in northern
Yugoslavia for trial on murder
charges. A surrender warrant was
signed June 3, 1985 by deputy-
Secretary of State John
Whitehead, the Department said.
Two Jewish organizations who
have closely monitored the legal
proceedings involving Artukovic
the Los Angeles-based Simon
Wiesenthal Center and the World
Jewish Congress immediately
expressed their gratitude to the
Justice and State Departments
for their persistent efforts leading
to Artukovic's extradition.
The 86-year-old Artukovic, of
Seal Beach, a seaside community
south of Los Angeles, is accused
by the Justice Department of the
wartime persecution or murder of
700,000 Serbians, 40,000 gypsies
and 28,000 Jews while he was In-
terior Minister of Croatia. Suffer-
ing from various physical and
health related ailments, Artukovic
had been confined to the detention
facilities at the University of
South Carolina Medical Center
since his arrest in November,
1984, on the second of two ex-
tradition requests from
Artukovic has lived in California
since entering the U.S. in 1948
through the use of fraudulent
documents, according to the
Justice Department's Office of
Special Investigations. His depor-
tation was ordered in 1952, at the
same time Yugoslav officials were
requesting his extradition for trial
on 22 counts of murder stemming
from alleged war crimes.
Artukovic has always em-
phatically denied the charges, and
m 19 S. district court turn-
ed down the extradition request,
holding that there was insufficient
evidence of guilt. That same year,
the deportation order was stayed
by an immigration commissioner
on the grounds that Artukovic
would be persecuted if he return-
ed to his native land.
In 1978, Congress amended the
Immigration Act to provide that
such stays could not be granted to
members of wartime German
governments who are accused of
atrocities. U.S. immigration
authorites then renewed their ef-
forts to have Artukovic deported,
and the 1959 stay was ordered
Artukovic appealed, and in
December, 1982, the U.S. 9th Cir-
cuit Court of Appeals in Los
Angeles ruled that before the stay
could be lifted, the government
would have to prove its case, thus
providing a significant setback to
prosecutors in the case. To avoid a
drawn-out deportation battle,
U.S. officials reportedly en-
couraged the Yugoslavs to file a
new extradition request.
On November 14, 1984, Ar-
tukovic was arrested by U.S. Mar-
shals and local police on a new ex-
tradition request Among the
charges brought by the Yugoslav
government against him are that
he commanded the extermination
of thousands of persons, including
the entire population of several
villages in early 1942.

4,000 Expected at South
Florida Purim Festival
At least 4,000 men, women and
children are expected to attend
the Fourth Annual South Florida
Hassidic Purim Festival set for
Wednesday March 19, 7:30 p.m.
at Hollywood's Young Circle
Bandshell. The event is sponsored
by Congregation Levi Yitzchok-
Lubavitch and Chabad of South
Broward. It is Florida's largest
public celebration of the Purim
Emil Cohen, America's leading
Jewish humorist will highlight the
evening of celebration that unites
Jews of all backgrounds and
lifestyles. His one man Purim
Spiel will undoubtedly bring the
joyous Purim spirit to all those in
attendance. The festival will also
feature a live musical orchestra,
Hassidic dancing, prominent
dignitaries, gifts for children,
delicious refreshments and
chances for many festival goers to
win valuable prizes. Children are
asked to come in holiday
Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus, co-
ordinator of the festival points out
the significance of the Purim
"A wicked man called Hainan
had a plot many years ago to an-
nihilate the Jewish people. The
rightous Mordecai gathered
22,000 Jewish children and
studied the Torah with them.
This, our sages point out, was the
key to our survival then. This, our
eternal Torah points out, is the
key to our survival today!"
The rabbi added that the
tremendous turnouts at the an-
nual Hannukah and Purim
festivals (this year there will also
be a third festival in the summer-
time at the bandshell) sponsored
by Lubavitch sends a powerful
message to the community.
"The unaffiliated Jewish com-
munity, along with those who are
somewhat affiliated, are thirsting
for Judaism. There does exist
channels to bring the alienated
Jewish boy and girl back to his or
her Jewish roots. Our congrega-
tion and its educational arm
(Chabad of South Broward) has
the right approach, which has
opened the hearts and eyes of
thousands enabling them to ap-
preciate the warmth and beauty of
their precious heritage," Tennen-
baum said.
Chabad of South Broward
volunteers will pack 3,000 Purim
packages for individuals in nurs-
ing homes, hospitals and prisons.
An additional 10,000 brochures
about the Purim Holliday will be
distributed throughout the South
Broward community.

tions, expressed "joy" at
Shcharansky's freedom and prais-
ed President Reagan and
Secretary of State George Shultz
"for their unremitting and
ultimately successful efforts to
win his release. Their commit-
ment to the cause of Soviet Jewry
merits our deepest appreciation."
Noting that such refuseniks as
Yosef Begun and Ida Nudel have
been waiting for many years for
an exit visa, Bialkin said, "We will
continue our efforts to call to
world attention the consistent
violations by the Soviet Union of
the solemn commitments which it
made in signing the Helsinki ac-
cords more than 10 years ago," on
the issue of human rights.
Gerald Kraft, president of B'nai
B'rith International, declared,
"We can only rejoice that
Shcharansky's bitter ordeal has
finally come to an end and that he
can rejoin his remarkably
courageous and steadfast wife,
He said, however, that Jews in
the USSR are still denied basic
freedom as Jews," and that the
Jewish community in the United
States "will continue its efforts to
help those Soviet Jews who wish
to leave to do so."
In a joint statement, Howard
Friedman, president, and David
Gordis, executive vice president,
of the American Jewish Commit-
tee, said, "At the same time that
we rejoice in Shcharansky's
freedom, we are ever mindful of
the tens of thousands of other
Soviet Jews who remain behind,
denied the opportunity for an exit
visa. We reaffirm our pledge to
continue our efforts until they,
too. are able to establish new lives
in Israel and be reunited with
their families."
Abraham Foxman, associate na-
tional director of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, said he welcomed
Shcharansky's release but added
that there cannot be full rejoicing
"while hundreds of thousands of
other Soviet Jews continue to suf-
fer unable to live as Jews in the
Soviet Union, unable to leave."

NEW YORK, N.Y. The celebration of the joyous holiday of
Purim provides the theme for the latest edition of "Jewish Televi-
sion Magazine," a monthly magazine-format program produced
by the Council of Jewish Federations. The series is currently be-
ing seen in over 35 markets across the United States and Canada.
Hollywood Cable airs the program on Channel 14 (lo) on Mon-
days at 4:30 p.m. Selkirk airs the show on Channel 30 on Mondays
at 3:30 p.m and Tuesdays at 11:30 p.m. JTM is sponsored by the
Jewish Federation of South Broward.
The March program begins with a look at some of the quaint
and interesting ritual art objects associated with Purim, including
some noisemakers that date back for centuries and have par-
ticualr aesthetic or historical significance.
The second segment shows what happens to Jewish ritual ob-
jects and sacred books when they are old and worn and can no
longer be used. For centuries, such items have been buried in
what is called a "geniza." The segment takes viewers to Chicago,
where the traditional "geniza" ceremony was recently reenacted
at a Jewish cemetery, with local Hebrew school children par-
ticipating in this profoundly moving service.
Children are also featured in the program's third segment,
which highlights an exciting new program that teaches
youngsters in Israel how to play tennis. A growing network of
Israel Tennis Centers enables youngsters from all over the coun-
try to learn the game, to make friends, to have fun even to
become world-class tennis champions! In a country frequently
beset by wars and terrorism, this free program provides children
from all social and economic backgrounds with "rackets, not
The March edition of JTV is rounded out with a segment show-
ing children in Israel excitedly preparing to celebrate the holiday
of Purim.
Hosting the series is film and television actor Stephen Macht,
currently best known to viewers for his featured role on "Cagney
and Lacey."
The 12 programs which make up the "Jewish Television
Magazine" series are made available to local Jewish communities
affilliated with the Council of Jewish Federations. CJF is the na-
tional association of 200 Jewish Federations, the central com-
munity organizations which serve nearly 800 localities embracing
a Jewish population of more than 5.7 million in the U.S. and
Established in 1932, CJF helps strengthen the work and the im-
pact of Jewish Federations by developing programs to meet
changing needs, providing an exchange of successful community
experiences, establishing guidelines for fund raising and opera-
tions and engaging in joint planning and action on common pur-
poses dealing with local, regional and international needs.

In Iraq, where the Jewish com-
munity now numbers only about
400, the report finds "there is no
evidence of recent persecution."
In 1985 a Western journalist
visited the last known synagogue
in Baghdad and confirmed that it
is still functioning.
The report noted that
"Lebanon's tiny Jewish minority
has been intimidated by kidnapp-
ing during 1985 and very few
Jews remain in their traditional
neighborhoods in west Beirut."
In Morocco, the some 10,000
Jews operate schools and institu-
tions as well as 20 major
synagogues, and have the support
of the king. Unlike the situation in
other Arab countries, Moroccan
Jews are allowed to maintain close

In Ethiopia, the government
continues to prevent emigration
and to restrict Hebrew instruc-
tion, according to the report. But
the report said that claims of
genocidal or brutal action against
Ethiopian Jews is unfounded.
(A State Department official
recently stated that the prospects
for the emigration of the some
9,000 Jews who still remain in
Ethiopia are grim and that the
situation is not likely to change in
the near future.
"Ethiopian Jewry's present
situation is without prospects at
all," Princeton Lyman. United
States Assistant Secretary of
State for African Affairs, told the
plenary session of the National
Jewish Community Relations Ad-
visory Council (NJCRAC) at the
Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. "I do not
anticipate any dramatic
breakthrough in the situation" in
the near future, he added.
Lyman explained that most of
the emigration of Ethiopian Jews
in the last few years, including the
airlift known as "Operation
Moses" which brought about
10,000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel
more than a year ago, took place
through the Sudan.
But this is no longer possible
since the removal of Sudan's
moderate, pro-Egyptian president
Gaafar Nimeiry last spring and
the establishment of a radical
regime amidst political turmoil all
over the country, Lyman said. He
said that "Operation Moses" has
become a major political issue in
the Sudan, viewed by many
political issue in the Sudan, view-
ed by many Sudanese as an "in-
sult to Sudan's national honor."
In view of this development,
Lyman asserted, "it is impossible
to conceive of the Sudan as a
pathway for Ethiopian migration
in the near future."
The situation of Ethiopian Jews
is complicated by the attitude of
the military-Marxist-pro-Soviet
government in Ethiopia, Lyman
said. "The government objects to
free Jewish emigration. They re-
sent the attention of the interna-
tional community to the Jews of
Ethiopia. But at the same time
they are sensitive to the interna-
tional attention to the Jews." he
Lyman said that relationships
between the U.S. and Ethiopia are
not good, and that that makes it
difficult on Washington to exert
any influence on the issue of
Ethiopian Jews.
According to Lyman, Ethiopian
Jews were not hit by the terrible
drought in that country, because
the Gondar region where they live
was not part of the drought area.
He said, however, that they con-
tinue to live in "great poverty."
Lyman said that despite the
grim prospects for the emigration
of Ethiopian Jews, efforts on their
behalf must continue, including
visits by American Jews to that
country. "It is important to keep
up activity and concern for the
Jews of Ethiopia." he concluded.)

of the Soviet Union cited in
another recent State Department
report of official anti-Semitism,
crackdowns against Hebrew
teachers and continued low

president of the Union of
American Hebrew Congregations,
stated, "The release of Shcharan-
sky confirms once again that the
Soviet Union cannot forever resist
the force of world opinion. It
reminds us too that, blessed as we
are with freedom to think and
speak and act, American Jews
must never forget or abandon
their brothers and sisters, who,
because they wish to live as Jews
and join their families in Israel,
have been persecuted and im-
prisoned by Soviet authorities."
The National Conference on
Soviet Jewry said, "We are ex-
tremely grateful to this Ad-
ministration for the continuing
public and private efforts in help-
ing secure Shcharansky's freedom
and having him repatriated to
Israel to join his wife, A vital."
It added, "We trust that the
release of Anatoly Shcharanaky
indicates a change in Soviet
behavior, as it seeks to build a new
relationship with this country. In
so doing, we look forward to the
release of hundreds of thousands
of other Jews awaiting to leave,
some for more than 15 years."
Bernice Tannenbaum, chairman
of the American Section of the
World Zionist Organization, said,
"Soviet propaganda attempted
unsuccessfully to camouflage
Shcharansky's imprisonment for
Zionist and humanist activities, as
a defender of human rights, and
the Helsinki accords, with the
canard of espionage. It is so fit-
ting, so right, so inspiring that he
has already arrived in the State
that welcomes him while it con-
tinues to burn a lamp of hope for
his fellow Soviet Jews."
Chaim Aron, head of the depart-
ment of immigration and absorp-
tion of the Jewish Agency, said,
"While we celebrate the release of
Shcharansky let us not fall into
the trap of forgetting the other
Prisoners of Zion and the 400,000
Jews who have applied to leave
the Soviet Union. We must con-
tinue the struggle to free Soviet
Jewry and we must be careful not
to view Shcharansky's release as a
change in Soviet policy, a change
which unfortunately has not yet
been accomplished."
Alan Pesky, chairman of the
Coalition to Free Soviet Jews,
said that the "momentous event"
of Shcharansky's release "does
not mean the end of our struggle
to ease the plight of two-and-a-
half-million Soviet Jews." He said
his organization welcomed the
release, "especially in view of the
Soviets' unwillingness for many
years to even consider the notion
of his departure."
Pesky added, "The Soviet
Union must understand, however,
that the freeing of Shcaransky, or
for that matter a handful of other
prominent Jewish activists, while
appreciated among those who
cherish liberty, will only have a
lasting impact if it is followed by a
large-scale emigration of Soviet

Marc Lichtman Named
New Exec, of MJHHA
The Board of Directors of the
Miami Jewish Home and Hosptial
for the Aged at Douglas Gardens
has announced the appointment of
Marc Lichtman as executive direc-
tor. He will be replacing Fred D.
Hirt who has assumed the position
of president and chief executive
officer at Mount Sinai Medical
Lichtman, a native of New
York, has been an associate direc-
tor at the Miami Jewish Home
since 1973. His responsibilities in-
cluded administration and opera-
tion of the 376-bed skilled nursing
home and hospital facility as well
as Irving Cypen Tower, the Miami
Jewish Home's 102-unit adult con-
gregate living facility.
Appointed by Gov. Bob Graham
in 1980 to the Board of Nursing
Home Administrators, which is
part of the Department of Profes-
sional Regulation, Lichtman cur-
rently serves as its chairman.
"We are most fortunate to have
Mr. Lichtman assume the leader-
shp of our Home," said Chairman
of the Board Judge Irving Cypen.
"He is a recognized authority in
his field, and has been a valued
member of our staff for the past
13 years. He is supremely
qualified and I know he will do a
tremendous job as executive
director of Douglas Gardens."
Lichtman holds a bachelor of
science degree from Long Island
University and a masters degree
in Health Care Administration
from Mount Sinai School of
Medicine/City University of New
York. He has served on the
faculties of Yale University,
George Washington University,
Florida International University
and the University of Miami and is
the author of numerouis articles

Shcharansky's release is "an en-
couraging and significant event,"
but the degree to which it
"reflects a real change in Soviet
policy" remains uncertain. To the
extent that the Shcharansky ac-
tion does signal a new openness
on the part of the Soviet Union.
Mann said, "it holds the promise
of a new phase in American-
Soviet relations."
Rabbi Louis Bernstein, presi-
dent of the Rabbinical Council of
America, said that Shcharansky's
release was a tribute to the
greatness of the American people
and its President. "It is a victory
of tne indomitable spirit of a
human being created in the image
of G-d over the forces of evil and
darkness," he stated. Bernstein
expressed the hope that the
release will signal hope for the
release of other Prisoners of Con-
science who wish to leave the
Soviet Union and that the USSR
will open up its doors to all Jews
who wish to emigrate.
Ruth Popkin, president of
Hadassah, welcomed the release
of Shcharansky, stating that he
"has been a symbol of courage
and determination for the cause of
Soviet Jewry and to all who
cherish freedom. We hope that his
release will herald the opening of
the doors of emigration to the
many Prisoners of Conscience and
the thousands of other Soviet
Jews whose only crime is the wish
to rejoin their families and live as
free Jews in the Jewish State,
Other Jewish leaders who
welcomed Shcharansky's release
and stressed that the struggle
must continue on behalf of other
Soviet Jews who wish to emigrate
were: Rabbi William Berkowitz,
president, American Jewish
Heritage Foundation; Herbert
Magidson, president, Jewish
Labor Committee; Ernest Zelig,
president, B'nai Zion; Dr. Barnett
Zumoff, president, Workmen's
Circle; and Hart Hasten, presi-
dent, Herut Zionists of America.
Some 300 members of the Stu-
dent Struggle for Soviet Jewry
sang and danced in a "victory
celebration" at Stern College in
Manhattan around a wooden
prison cage which Avital
Shcharansky often stood in during
SSSJ demonstrations for her
Rabbi Allan Meyerowitz of Spr-
ing Valley, N.Y., who met Anatoly
Shcharansky in 1974, recalled
that Shcharansky had encouraged
him to sing the Israel anthem,
Hatikvah, with him in Red
Square. Israel Fridman of
Manhattan, who had been at the
courthouse in Moscow during
Shcharansky's trial, emphasized
that "many Soviet Jews are still
left in hell as Shcharansky reaches
his seventh heaven."
CAMPAIGN CABINET Campaign leaders recently met at
the Federation to meet and speak with Mark Talisman, direc-
tor of the Washington office of the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions. Talisman discussed current issues taking place in

Community Dateline
South Broward
The first meeting of JACS of
South Broward was recently held
at Temple Beth El in Hollywood.
JACS, which stands for Jewish
Alcoholics, Chemically
Dependents and Significant
Others, is a non-profit, volunteer
membership organization design-
ed to help alcoholics and chemical-
ly dependent Jews, their families
and the community.
JACS serves as a community
outreach program and resource
center helping to explode the
myth that there are no Jewish
alcoholics and addicts. Alcoholism
and drug addiction is a three-
phase disease: physical, mental
and spiritual.
"When I first sought help for
my alcohol problem I went to AA.
The first meeting happened to be
in a hospital but more than 65 per-
cent of all AA meetings are held in
churches," one JACS member
said. "The second night I walked
into a church for a meeting. Being
in a church only added to my feel-
ing of being uncomfortable for not
only was I a drunk but it seemed
that everywhere I looked was a
picture of Christ or a cross or a
saying from the New Testament.
"I felt I must be the only Jewish
alcoholic in the world or there
would be AA meetings in
synagogues. This was in
February, 1985. After the first
week I began to meet other Jews
in my program of recovery. I
began to feel more comfortable
knowing I was not the only Jew in
"In April I heard about JACS in
Tamarac, which seemed like a
great idea. I was able to attend
some of their monthly meetings
but I felt there was a need for
JACS in South Broward since a
large number of Jews I know per-
sonally are unable to attend in

of every month at Temple Beth

Academy Award in the best
documentary short subject

mont; Irene Opdyke (Poland) of
Orbs Linda, Calif.; Magda Trocme

The Israel University Center
recently announced the new
"Study in English in Israel" cam-
paign. The campaign is designed
to serve the rising interest of
American college students in
study abroad in Israel and to fur-
ther the awareness of Israel as a
challenging foreign study
The campaign's dynamic adver-
tising approach consists of color-
ful posters, brochures and buttons
distributed nationwide in the ef-
forts to focus attention on Israel
as an ideal setting for study
abroad. One of the highlights of
the campaign is the use of bold ads
which specifically appeal to to-
day's American college students.
The ads feature a return coupon
to the Israel University Center,
whose state-of-the-art computer
system will be used to forward
names and addresses to all five
universities for follow-up. In addi-
tion, visiting Israeli professors
who are in America support the
campaign by personally and
directly contacting their
American colleagues and
Each of the five universities
Bar Ilan, Ben-Gurion, Haifa,
Hebrew and Tel Aviv is unique,
yet they all offer programs iii
English for overseas students.
Depending upon the university, a
student may study for a year, a
semester, or a summer. All the
programs offer Hebrew Language
study, transfer credits, moderate
fees, scholarships and special
touring options.
Lisa Kohan, director of the
Israel University Center, com-
mented, "Students should know
that studying in Israel means a
first-rate education in a land that
is still exotic' yet achieving
marvelous breakthroughs in solv-
ing universal problems. It is our
intention to form an intensive on-

said, "Each time that we fail to
protest .. each time that we do
not write to television stations

have made it easier for the evil
and wicked to win the battle." She
also urged the two hundred
friends and members of B'nai Zion
present to send letters of com-
mendation to those members of
the Senate and House of
Representatives who support
Israel, as quickly as letters of
criticism and complaint are sent.

especially the Holocaust sur-
vivors, "... who give of
yourselves and worldly goods for
others to enjoy life as we do in the
United States."

segments of the community to at-
tend our annual dinner. The
Jewish population respects, ap-
preciates and supports the work
of Lubavitch both locally and na-
tionally. They realize the positive
results we've had in promoting
Jewish ideals to all Jews and in
generating Jewish interests
amongst our youth."

living reminiscences.
For Gilead, kibbutz life is an
ideal crowning the new society of
Israel. He has devoted his life to
helping Israel's young workers;
when disaster threatened Euro-
pean Jewry, he undertook a
rescue mission to Poland, helping
to prepare young Polish Jews to
reach haven in Palestine. He
fought in the Haganah and the
Palmach. His moving story is the
story of Israel it is highly
David Hacohen was one of the
vatikim the highly respected
old-time veterans of Zionism who
helped bring about the establishe-
ment of Israel. When he came to
Palestine early in the century, the
impoverished country was under
tyrannical Turkish rule. Ironical-
ly, Hacohen served in the Turkish
army in World War I, fighting
against the Allies.
After studying in England, he
returned to British-mandated
Palestine in 1923 and dedicated
his life to Labor Zionism, Working
for years in the Histadrut and as a
Haifa municipality member. He
remained an ardent socialist and
Zionist, and struggled to improve
relations between Jews and
Arabs, especially in Haifa.
He was a member of the
Knesset for some 20 years and
Leonid and Ekaterina Yuzefovich
of Moscow. Mark becomes a Bar
Mitzvah in absentia as he is the
son of Russian Refuseniks. The
government of the Soviet Union
makes it not only impossible to
learn Hebrew, but also impossible
for a Jewish child to become a Bar
or Bat Mitzvah. The significance
of stating that Mark Yuzefovich
become a Bar Mitzvah is, in fact,
recognizing that our Jewish
brothers and sisters are not
forgotten nor forsaken.
Isaac is in the seventh grade at

Book Review
also served as Israel's envoy to
Burma. He was deeply involved in
"illegal" immigration of Jews to
Palestine in the 1930s, and during
the Second World War was an im-
portant intelligence advisor for
the British. His views on many
burning issues often conflicted
with those of Israel's top leaders,
including Ben-Gurion, but he was
always honored for his idealism. A
very lively, personal history of the
Jewish state.
In Israel today, and for decades
past, only one person was called
"Berl" a philosopher of
socialist Zionism who was without
question one of the true founding
fathers of the Jewish state. He
was a statesman rather than a
politician, a pragmatic innovator
of many of Israel's social and
economic institutions. Without
doubt, he was a mentor and in-
spiration for Ben-Gurion, Golda
Meir and many other leaders.
Berl Katznelson was a man of
enormous vision. He never
faltered in his humanistic ideals,
and more than any other early
Zionist personality succeeded in
merging the twin concepts of na-
tional redemption and social
justice for all. Like Israel itself,
his intellectual growth continued
all his life, and it was this growth
that he sought to share with his
fellow Israelis. A very insightful,

Neo-Nazi Gaits
Members Receive
Prison Sentences
By Ellen Marks
SEATTLE (JTA) Ten members of a radical neo-Nazi gang
have been given stiff prison terms ranging between 40 and 100
years for following a bizarre plot to overthrow the government
and establish an Aryan society.
U.S. District Judge Walter McGovern made little comment
when members of die group, The Order, were sentenced here
recently for racketeering and conspiracy.
Prosecutors, during a three-and-a-half month trial last fall, ac-
cused the group of committing two murders, robbery,
counterfeiting, and other crimes as it sought to kill Jews, deport
minorities.and create an all-white nation.
The harshest sentences went to those accused of committing
m:irder. McGovern ordered a 100-year sentence for Bruce Carroll
Pierce, suspected of being the triggerman in the June 1984
machinegun slaying of Denver radio personality Alan Berg.
Government authorities claimed Pierce, 31, of Hayden Lake,
Idaho, and several other group members decided to kill Berg
because he was Jewish and relished baiting anti-Semites who
phoned him during his call-in show.
Also given a 100-year sentence was Randolph Duey, 34, of
Spokane. Wash. Duey was accused of murdering fellow white
supremacist Walter West because he was believed to be leaking
information about The Order.
Gary Lee Yarbrough, sentenced to 60 years for racketerring
and armed robbery, compared the defendants to patriots, and told
McGovern during the hearing that the lengthy trial was a sham.
"This was a political trial," said Yarbrough, 29, of Sandpoint,
Idaho. "These men are no more criminals than the men who took
part in the Boston Tea Party." Yarbrough warned the judge that
The Order's cause would be promoted by "200,000 faithful
members and 100,000 supporters. There will be many more. The
blood will flow and it grieves me."
But Assitant U.S. Attorney Gene Wilson, who headed the
government's six-member prosecution team, praised the
sentences and said they would serve as warning for others who
commit serious crimes for ideological purposes.
