Security Measures In Territories Creating Image Problem
Israel faced challenges on the

paganda fronts this week as it

breaks of violence in 12 years
in the Gaza Strip and West
Friendly Western countries,
including the United States,
Britain and West Germany,

displeasure over the mounting
toll of Palestinian dead and

Jerusalem, linked to events in

Israel's normally quiescent
Arab population.
Peaceful demonstrations of
solidarity with their peers in
the West Bank and Gaza Strip
were held in Nazareth, the
largest Arab township in
Israel, and in several Arab
villages. They were organized
by the Democratic Front for
Peace and Equality, a front of
Israel's Communist Party.
At the same time, the Na-
tional Committee of Arab
Mayors, considered the most
influential Arab organization
in Israel, has urged the
government to leave the ter-

Taking Risks With Style and Substance
Jtvnsk Floridian Staff Writer
IN HER LIFE and in the
jewelry she designs, Joan
Boyce, the former Joanie Ap-
plebaum of Miami Beach, has
always believed in taking
chances. In her personal life,
Boyce has taken chances by
traveling the world alone, and
by marrying outside of her
religion and race.
In her business life, Boyce
has taken chances by design-
ing jewelry never intended for
the neck of a debutante; thick-
ly braided ropes of gold, heavy
ornaments set with colored
stones or old Roman coins,
earrings and rings as substan-
tial as small dinosaur eggs
these are what Boyce's crea-
tions are made of.
"I have a definite taste; bold,
big, very European, very con-
temporary, very daytime/'
says Boyce of her designs. "I
don't make fancy diamond
evening necklaces. I don't
make safe jewelry," in both
senses of the word: "It doesn't
sit in a safe, and you don't hide
behind a pair of diamond
studs," which Boyce refers to
contemptuously as "pimples."
"My customers rely on me
for what is new, modern, in
fashion I make jewelry so
you make a statement without
wearing ten rings you just
have one or two important
pieces," Boyce explains.
Boyce's fashion statements
do not come cheaply; you could
probably travel to China with a
friend, buy a new car, or put
your child through a year of
college for the price of her
Boyce, however, will not
discuss the cost of her designs.
"It's like being in a doctor's
office. I respect privacy if
someone comes in with her
best friend, I wouldn't serve
them together. I wouldn't tell
one what the other bought, or
how much she spent."
Boyce admits that her policy
stems from the possibility of
jealousy and fear of theft.
You could buy one of Boyce's
creations at Saks Fifth
Avenue, or, if it happens to be
summer, at her exclusive shop
in the West Hamptons. But
Joyce's special customers are
the ones she travels by plane
to meet for individual
For these buyers, Boyce is
more than a mere saleswoman;
she is a fashion consultant, an
image specialist, an arbiter of
good taste.
"That's just too small for
you," Boyce informs customer
Bonnie Barnett, an elegant
blonde who is art consultant
for Sun Banks.
"Could it be for the beach? It
looks very European," com-
ments Barnett.

Gabriel Levy
Levy said in an interview in his
office at the Empire State
Building that the United
States no doubt will attempt to
increase its exports to Europe
as well as other countries.
Israel's role will be more
than a stopping point for goods
to be traded, he added. Accor-
ding to the free trade
agreements, Israel must pro-
duce at least a third of the pro-
duct on behalf of an American
or European company in order
for the product to be traded
through Israel in the other
realm duty-free. "And Israel
of course has the infrastruc-
ture and professionals to do
it," he pointed out.
Levy, who assumed his post
here leas than a year ago, said
that he sees his task as
locating American companies
and businessmen and making
the aware of the new

Peace Conference
Continued from Page 1
in the face of the increasing
number of Palestinian
The French government also
made a significant switch in at-
titude toward the Middle East
peace process when it called on
Israel "to start a dialogue and
negotiations' with all in-
terested parties within the
framework of an international
peace conference."
Until now, France has
carefully avoided taking sides
on the issue of an international
conference, which has sharply
divided Israel's coalition
But the statement read to
the press after France's week-
ly Cabinet meeting, presided
over by President Francois
Mitterrand, expressed the
government's "worry and
emotion" over the continued
violence and loss of life in the
The statement said conven-
ing an international peace con-
ference "was now more urgent
than ever before." Govern-
ment spokesman Andre
Rosainot stressed that this
view was shared by both Mit-
terrand, a Socialist, and the
conservative Chirac.
Sources here said Wednes-
day that the Franch am-
bassadors in Washington and
London will urge the United
States and Britain to support
convening an international
peace conference at the
earliest moment, with par-
ticipation of the five perma-
nent members of the United
Nations Security Council and
all "the concerned parties."
At the same time, the cen-
tral body of French Jewish
organizations, CRIF, which
represents the country's
600,000 Jews, called on Israel
to open "a real dialogue for
peace." It deplored "the loss
of life" in the recent violence
in the territories.
Chirac's response to the
Arab envoys who visited him
was reported to the press by
Boujon de l'Estaing. He said
the premier told them that
France is in contact with its
European Economic Com-
munity partners for a possible
joint statement on the situa-
tion in the territories.
possibilities for investment in
Israel in view of the free trade
"Our economic mission's
goal is not to interfere in
business ventures, but rather
encourage them, to coordinate
between the various bodies in-
volved, to give advice and
escort the investor in all the
stages of the venture, until the
mission is satisfactorily com-
pleted," Levy said.
A lawyer and businessman
himself, Levy recommended
that American businessman
turn to the economic mission
here as the "one single ad-
dress" for all the aspects of in-
vesting in Israel. He said the
economic mission encompasses
the activities of Israel's invest-
ment authority, finance and
tourism ministries, and trade
and supply missions in the
United States.
Levy said he is aware of
complaints that bureaucratic
red tape deters many
Americans from investing in
Israel. However, he contend-
ed, "Recently, there has been
a lot of improvement in this
regard. In fact, things are
moving much faster now in
Israel, even faster, in many
cases, than in dealings with
governmental offices in the
United States.
"I want to stress, however,
that in many cases, when com-
plaints were looked into regar-
ding red tape in Israel's
governmental offices, it turn-
ed out that those who com-
plained did not turn to the
right offices or the right
"In many cases, they dealt
with too high-ranking officials.
Our goal is to direct these in-
vestors and businessmen to
the right people in Israel who
can help them solve their
specific problems."
Claiming that in recent
years Israel has become an at-
tractive place for financial in-
vestment, Levy disclosed that
his office and the Merrill
Lynch stock brokerage com-
pany are planning to create a
His ministry is undertaking,
together with Israel banks, a
rehabilitation plan of a number
of businesses to be presented
to American investors with at-
tractive terms, he said,
mututal fund to be registered
in New York, with the goal of
securing $60 million to be in-
vested in stocks in Israel.
"Such a mutual fund will
strengthen the stock market in
Israel and will give serious
Israeli companies the oppor-
tunity to rind financing in
Israel," Levy said.
Other avenues for in-
vestments in Israel include ex-
isting companies and factories.
Levy said that because of the
high cost of financing in Israel,
as compared with the United
States, "many good and
serious Israeli businesses find
themselves in difficulties."
As for Israeli exports to the
United States, Levy said that
Israel is still trying to
"penetrate" the vast
American consuming market.
He said that to a large extent
Israel is being helped in pro-
moting its products in America
by its "Jewiah connections,"
because many Jews are involv-
ed in the marketing networks
of this country.
For Israel, he noted, that
last goal is critical. "I beleive
that once we penetrate the
American market, and Israeli
products will become
household names here, we will
come to the important state of
increasing production in
Israel, because the potential of
the American market is almost
"In other words, we plan to
promote marketing of Israeli
goods in America in order to
stimulate and increase produc-
tion in Israel."

U.S. Moves Anne Pollard To Mayo^
For Treatment of Stomach Disorder
Anne Henderson Pollard, the
wife of convicted spy for Israel
Jonathan Jay Pollard, has been
transferred from prison to the
Mayo Clinic in Rochester,
Kathryn Morse, spokesper-
son for the Federal Bureau of
Prisons, said Anne Pollard was
moved Dec. 11 from the
Federal Correctional Institu-

treatment at the clinic of
stomach disorders.
She suffers from biliary

Morse refused to elaborate
on Pollard's condition, but con-
firmed that Pollard had
previously been transferred to
Kentucky hospitals for a day at
a time. There is no timetable
for the stay at the Mayo Clinic,
she said.

Refuseniks Invited To Pursue Visas
emigration officials Wednes-
day, Dec. 9 told an unspecified
number of Moscow Jewish
refuseniks to reapply to

quently refuse to sign the

tions are not at issue.
'Delay Tactic'
However, a long-time
Moscow refusenik told the
Long Island Committee for
Soviet Jewry that only
members of a seminar group
founded by Alia Zonis had
been notified they may reapp-
ly, and that refuseniks were
largely considering it a "delay
tactic at the time of the
U.S.-Soviet summit meetings.
But Dear said refusenik
Vladimir (Zeev) Dashevsky of
Moscow, who is not part of
Zonis' group, said he received
a phone call from the Moscow
emigration office telling him to
reapply for a visa. Dashevsky
added that some of his friends
had also received similar calls,
and that the news had been an-
nounced in the media.
He told his daughter, Irina
Dashevsky Kara-Ivanov, a
former refusenik living in
Israel since May, by telephone
that he would reapply. But she
said she was not sure he or
other refuseniks would actual-
ly receive visas.
"I hope this is a good sign,"
she said, "but I will believe it
only when I see my father in
Israel ... We would like to
believe that there are positive
changes in the Soviet Union
and that there is real glasnost
and democracy."
Europe Cautions Restraint
Ami JEAN COHEN (Atheiu)
(JTA) European nations
have told Israel to exercise
greater restraint in dealing
with the violent demonstra-
tions that enveloped the Gaza
Strip this past week.
A resolution to that effect
was adopted by the
Strasbourg-based Parliament
of Europe, the legislative body
of the 12-member European
Economic Community. Less
restrained criticism of Israel
was contained in a statement
released in Athens by the
Greek Foreign Ministry.
The European Parliament
voted 155 to 15, with one
abstention, for a resolution
calling on Israel to observe the
International Convention on
the Rights of Man in the ter-
ritories it administers and to
apply the rights and obliga-
tions of an occupying power as

The 1987 Israel Prize for
Jewish studies has been
awarded to two Israeli
scholars, Rabbi Adin Steinzalz
and Professor Moshe Goshen-.
Gottstein. The presentations
will be made here next April

Steinzalz 50, was selected
for his work on the Babylonian
Talmud. Nineteen volumes of
his annotated text and com-

ed, so far.
Goahen-Gottstein, 62, will

scholarship, translations and
commentaries and his study of
the development of Hebrew

Thousands Attend
Kosher Expo
The International Kosher Foods and Jewish Life Expo
has received a warm welcome to the Miami Beach Conven-
tion Center. Irving I. Silverman, president of Nancy Neale
Enterprises and creator of the Expo concept, says more
than 28,000 South Florida residents celebrated their
Jewish heritage at the Expo, December 4-7.
"They tasted an incredible variety of kosher noshes
everything from bagel dogs to pasta to French champagne
and fancy mustards to leben and imitation shrimp, lobster
and crab meat. They listened to Klezmer bands and a
Jewish rock 'n roll group, participated in seminars about
kashruth and health, and got a headstart on Chanukah
shopping choosing from books and arts, toys, jewelry
and Judaica."
Irving Silverman chose Miami Beach because of its active
and enthusiastic Jewish community, second only in size to
New York. "Lots of other cities wanted the Expo, but we
decided on Miami Beach because of the young families and
professionals who have migrated South to take advantaged
of economic expansion and the terrific climate. New com-
panies, great people and the Florida sun, were the perfect
combination for a successful Expo."
Billed as the "biggest Kosher Party ever held," the Expo
was created to meet the needs of America's growing
kosher community. Research shows that one out of every
four products on supermarket shelves today are under rab-
binical supervision, although of the six million people who
buy kosher, only 1.5 million are Jewish.
Frank" Talking
Relations between France and Israel are entering a new
phase with the recent visit of Prune Minster Jacques
Chirac to Jerusalem. In the 1950s and early 60s France was
Israel's main arms supplier, until General de Gaulle
dramatically turned his back on Israel in 1967.
The improvement in relations may be connected to the
fact that the French presidential elections take place in
mid-1988; most major political figures in France have
visited Israel recently. While there is no "Jewish vote" in
France, all politicians are out to woo the 700,000-strong
Jewish community (largest in Europe, fourth largest in the

Violence Begs For Peace
Irrespective of Israel's determination of
what the final disposition of the Gaza Strip
should be, the Jewish state again faces ter-
rorism and hatred virtually alone.
The United States indicated it would abs-
tain from voting on, rather than veto, a.
United Nations resolution denouncing ex-
cessive use of force by Israel in quelling
Arab protests in Gaza and the West Bank.
But the problem confronting Israel is not
just a protest, and far more than a public
relations crisis.
The violence of PLO-inspired Arabs is
such that it generates measures which rub-
ber bullets and water hoses cannot restrain.
Almost every one of the dead in the past
weeks of clashes has been the result of
Israeli use of live ammunition as a
last resort. Outnumbered by numbers rang-
ing up to 100-to-one, the Israeli soldiers and
the border police have chosen to survive
themselves rather than gain world
It is unfortunate, tragic that the strikes
and protests have spread to Israel itself. The
Arabs who are Israeli citizens have been
remarkably loyal through no fewer than five
Arab-Israeli wars.
Even as Israel reasserts its right to main-
tain its authority in Gaza and the West
Bank, the need for a permanent solution to

But just as it was a strong United States

strong Israel which brings the Arabs to the
peace table.
PARIS (JTA) A majori-
ty of the French population cl-
ings to stereotypical images of
Jews, some of mem bordering
on anti-Semitism, according; to
a survey taken last month, but
the overall feeling has become
friendlier of late.
The results of the survey by
Sofres, France's largest public
opinion polling organization,
were published in the Jewish
weekly Tribune Juive on the
occasion of its 1,000th issue.
'The Jewish image is still
linked to three terms: money,
tradition and a cosmopolitan
link to world Jewry," said Pro-
fessor Emeric Deutach, head
of Sofres.
Deutach reported at a news
conference that 72 percent of
the 1,000 persons questioned
agreed that "Jews represent
an international power as they
help each other in overlapping |
frontiers." Jews were "linked |
to international capitalism" by
57 percent, and 48 percent
thought Jews "tend to help
each other to the detriment of
other people."
While 91 percent described
Jews as "very attached to
their traditions" and 86 per-
cent saw that as positive, 26
percent said that without Jews
France would be culturally
poor," compared to 46 percent
who disagreed and 29 percent
with no opinion.
The poll found that most
French people associate Jews
with three traits "smart" in
a slightly pejorative sense, 47
percent; ^money-loving," 43
percent; and intelligent, 36
percent. Other traits scored
lower: well educated and
patriotic, 19 percent; and
generous, 8 percent.
According to Deutach, the
poll showed a clear split bet-
ween the major political par-
ties in their attitudes toward
Jews. "The Socialists continue
to have a generally tolerant
approach, traditional since the
days of Socialist leader Jean
Jaures, while the right has
changed, but continues to har-
bor certain basic prejudices
and misconceptions, Deutach
He added that the overall
results seemed to show that
the younger generation is
more tolerant regarding Jews
than are older French.
Tribune Juive, which com-
missioned the poll, was found-
ed in Strassbourg in 1946. It is
now published in Paris and has
slightly more than 16,000
subscribers. Its editor and
publisher is Rabbi Jacquot

Question of Israel Leads To Question of Palestine ...
In November the United Na-
tions staged its annual ir-
relevancy on the "Question of
Palestine." This "debate" re-
quire^ three days of General
Assembly time and the par-
ticipation of dozens of coun-
tries, most of whose represen-
tatives unreeled anti-Israel
During this year's rhetorical
ritual the PLO's Farouk Kad-
doumi a top associate of
Chairman Yasir Arafat
recalled the century of
"violence, terrorism and
murder" faced by "the people
of Palestine." He dwelt on the
"material and moral support"
the British gave to "illegal"
Jewish immigration and the
Jews' subsequent oppression
of the Arabs. The Jewish state,
Kaddoumi asserted, brought
to the apparently otherwise
peaceful Middle East "wars,
religious and racial ...
To accomplish this, Israel
managed to "align itself with
all the forces of evil in the
world." As it celebrates its
40th anniversary, Israel
should realize it pushed the
Palestinian Arabs "into a
Holocaust not less than (the
one) the Jews experienced."
The Jordanian represen-
tative insisted that early
Zionist leaders recognized that
"the presence of Jews in the
region" would be "in total
negation of the presence of
Palestinians." Thereafter,
Israel's policy always was that
of aggression, systematic ter-
ror, and colonial expansion
rather than concession and
coexistence. It still denies the
inalienable rights of the
Palestinian people; instead,
"the campaign for the Judaiza-
tion of Palestine goes on ...
Israel has no desire for peace
... One must not be deceived
by Israeli declarations ..."

most of his Arab and Islamic
colleagues: He, too, noted the

in which England looked
with favor on the establish-
ment of a Jewish homeland in
Palestine and thundered
that it was granted "by one
who did not possess to those
who did not deserve..."
As if he could not believe it
himself, the Kuwaiti informed
the General Assembly that
"basically, the creed of
Zionism holds that the land of
Palestine belongs to the
Jewish people." But, citing the
20th anniversary of T'the
Zionist entity's occupation of
the rest of Palestine," he of-
fered hope: This year is also

Just as a federal district court
judge in Tampa turned down a
request from the Lubavitch
movement to order the cities
of Sarasota and Tampa- to
allow members of the mov-
ment to place menorahs on
public land in those com-
munities, so too did a federal
district court judge in Ohio
turn down a similar request
from Lubavitch represen-
tatives seeking permission to
place a menorah on public pro-
perty in Cincinnati.

"She puts me together,
gives me very good advice for
my business and social life,
which is very busy, so I don't
buy pieces I wouldn't wear,"
Barnett explains.
This year, gold with a flat or
dull finish, colored stones, old
coins, and carved intaglio
(designs engraved into stones,
usually onyx, carnelian, or
malachite) are the fashionable
items, Boyce says.
But in the world of high
fashion, style is more impor-
tant than substance, and
Boyce would rather see a
woman interestingly dressed
in paste and rhinestones than
adorned by traditional stud
earrings and pearls.
"I'd rather have someone
trying to take a shot at making
a fashion statement with
whatever their pocketbook can
afford than be safe and overly
conservative,' insists the
woman whose designs are
featured in magazines such as
Harper's Bazaar.
SLENDER enough for high
fashion, expertly made-up and
exquisitely dressed in a butter-
cup yellow sweater and black
leather skirt, Boyce looks like
she travels in the same social
circles as do her customers.
Yet her husband of 23 years
works as the principal of a
Brooklyn school.
"My husband is black in the
ghetto, so we don't come from

15 year-old son and two step-
sons from her marriage.
"I did the same thing I
worked in the ghetto for 14
years as a teacher, so it wasn't
such a difficult transition," she
contends. "It's more in-
teresting for other people look-
ing in on us and speculating;
we're definitely not yur
average Jewish couple."
Boyce, who got started in
the jewelry business by selling
pieces sent to her by her late
mother, who had a jewelry
store on the 79th Street

to take charge of her own life
as being the key to her success.

Asked which historical

Boyce replies that she knows
which she least identifies with
Cleopatra: the legendary
queen of Egypt, whose name is
synonymous with glamor,
allurement and charm.
"I don't see myself as a
woman wanting to lure a

anti-Israel behavior has begun
to recede. In this view, the an-
nual "Question of Palestine"
grotesquery is becoming the
last showcase for posturing
a cost-free arena in which to
cheer the PLO.
But just in case, Israel had

The Reagan administration
has already told Israel at the

many of its actions in the ter-
ritories. United States Am-

Shamir expressed Israel's
regret for the loss of lives, but
he blamed the Palestine
Liberation Organization and
"Arab inciters" for ag-
gravating the situation.
He stressed to the American
envoy that the IDF and the
police are exercising maximum
restraint to avoid clashes with
the local population and ex-
pressed confidence that the
territories will soon be calm.
Meanwhile, Ezer Weizman,
acting foreign minister in the
absence of Shimon Peres, who
is touring Latin America, net
with Shamir for two hours
Wednesday (Dec. 16) to
discuss the adverse image aris-
ing from the tough presenta-
tion of events in the world
news media. So far, there is no
word of any immediate in-
itiative by Israel to balance
those reports.
The strict orders given
soldiers, to use their weapons
only in life-threatening situa-
tions and to avoid provocation
to the local population in the
territories, reflect Jerusalem's
sensitivity to the problem. The
security forces reportedly
deferred such tough measures
as administrative arrests and
the demolition of houses
belonging to terrorists.
An idea raised to close the
territories to the news media
was reportedly dropped. It
was said to have come up at a
meeting between Shamir and
Gen. Dan Shomron, the IDF
chief of staff. Weizman said on
a radio interview that he re-
jected it out of hand.

But according to a brief filed
in the Sarasota-Tampa case by
the American Jewish Congress

Manatee Jewish Federation,
the ADL and itself, Chabad's
claims for the secularity of the
menorah are a "sham, mask-

"The menorah is intended to
be a religious symbol, and the
(Lubavitch) leaders boast of its
success in that regard," accor-
ding to the brief.
The brief followed a stan-
dard argument in church-state
litigation: A Christmas tree,
unlike a menorah, is for First
Amendment purposes a
secular symbol, because it car-
ries a seasonal, but no actual
religious, significance.
As in other communities, the
local Jewish federation in
Sarasota had invited Chabad
to erect its menorah on federa-
tion or other privately-owned
property. According to Jack
Weintraub, executive director
of the Sarasota-Manatee
Jewish Federation, Bukiet's
reply to that invitation was,
"We'll do that, too."
Members of the Lubavitch
movement concede that erec-

Mengele, whose so-called

countless Auschwitz inmates,
had been the object of a world-

Rewards totalling $3.4
million were offered in 1985
for information on his

tion is a serious flouting of
human rights and aspirations.
Yuly Koeharovsky's apppeal
to Reagan and Gorbachev was
sent on November 15. The two
men to whom it was addressed
have now met and talked in
Washington. It would be a real
sign that human rights did in-
deed play a significant part on
their agenda if, in the days
ahead, Yuly Kosharovsky and
his family were to be told:
"Now you can go to Israel."
Beate Klarsfeld Demands
Waldheim Resign
hunter Beate Klarsfeld affixed
a poster to the front door of
Kurt Waldheim's office last
month demanding that the
Austrian president resign.
The poster displayed a
photograph of Waldheim in his
World War II German army
uniform alongside one of
Austrian Jews being foreced
to scrub the pavements after
Austria became part of the
Third Reich by the 1938
The poster read: "No more
liar-president with a war
criminal file. Waldheim must
resign." It was removed from
the door by a policeman.
A plain-clothes officer took
Klarsfeld's name, examined
her passport and asked her to
leave the premises. There was
no further police action, the
World Jewish Congress
Klarsfeld told reporters that
she acted to draw attention to
the fact that the United Na-
tions war crimes archives con-
tains a file on Waldheim, a
Beate Klarsfeld
former U.N. secretary general
who concealed his wartime ac-
tivities for 40 years. She said
she also wanted to remind peo-
ple that next year is the 50th
anniversary of the Auschluss.
The WJCongress has accus-
ed Waldheim of a role in the
deportation of Greek Jews and
atrocities against civilians and
partisan fighters while he was
an intelligence officer in the
German army in the Balkans
during the war.

Year-End Review KVETCHr
Of 'Jewish' News
Mikhail Gorbachev's policy of
glasnost, the arrest and trials
of Nazi war criminals, the U.S.
Justice Department's
crackdown on extremists and
Pope John Paul IPs meetings
with American Jewish leaders
are among the 10 issues of ma-
jor significance to the Jewish
community in 1987. The list
was completed by the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
The complete list follows:
* Gorbachev's Glasnost:
Although to be viewed with
continued skepticism and
tested at every opportunity,
glasnost may introduce a new
dimension of hope for Soviet
Jews as well as improved rela-
tions between the USSR and
the United States. Time and
pressure on the Kremlin for
continued democratization and
extension of human rights will
determine whether glasnost
heralds a dawn that is real or
* Apprehension and trials of
Nazi war criminals: The arrest
in Argentina of Josef Schwam-
mberger, the brutal Nazi labor
camp commander. In France,
the sadistic "Butcher of
Lyons" Klaus Barbie was
found guilty. John Demjanjuk
is on trial in Israel. Karl Lin-
nas was deported to his native
Estonia but died before facing
trial. Belatedly but inevitably,
Nazi war criminals are finally
reaping the whirlwind.
* Victory over extremists:
The Justice Department's con-
tinued vigorous prosecution of
hate group activists saw two
members of The Order con-
victed in Denver for violating
the civil rights of radio talk
show host Alan Berg,
murdered in 1984- In Arkan-
sas, ten Aryan Nations
members were indicted for
conspiring to overthrow the
government In Nevada, five
members of the Committee of
the States were found guilty of
threatening the lives of Inter-
nal Revenue agents and a
judge. Pope John Paul IPs
two meetings with American
Jewish leaders. As a conse-
quence of his embrace of alleg-
ed Nazi war criminal Kurt
Waldheim, modern dialogue
between Catholics and Jews
attained a new level of
frankness and significance
that, if properly implemented,
could lead to even greater pro-
gress on matters of our
Decisions on ethnic, racial
and sexual discrimination: The
Supreme Court ruled that civil
rights laws against racial
discrimination also protect
Jews and Arabs who are vic-
timized by ethnically-
motivated attacks. It also rul-
ed that the Rotary Clubs of
California must admit women.
The U.S. ban on
Waldheim: By placing
Austrian president Kurt
Waldheim on its "watch list,"
effectively barring him from
entering the United States,
the Justice Department
demonstrated that Nazi war
criminals, no matter how high
their office, are not welcome.
Anti-Semitism without
Jews: This phenomenon, which
emerged in practically Jude-
nein Poland and Austria, has
surfaced in Japan, a land with
hardly enough Jews to count.
Books blaming American Jews
for Japan's economic problems
have become best sellers.
Protestant declaration on
Judaism: The United Church
of Christ's policy statement,
the first by a major Protestant
denomination, affirms that
Judaism has not been
superseded by Christianity
and there is no abrogation of
God's covenent with the
Jewish people,
The opening of the United
Nations war crimes files: Long
sought, the opening to inspec-
tion by governments and
scholars of the dossiers on
some 40,000 suspects is a
welcome breakthrough in the
search for those who still elude
The indictment of Lyndon
H. LaRouche, Jr.: In the first
criminal charges to be brought
against him, political ex-
tremist and anti-Semitic pro-
pagandist Lyndon H.
LaRouche, Jr., was indicted on
charges of conspiring to bkx..
a federal investigation of a
multi million dollar credit card
fraud involving members of bis
Brig. Gen. Ephraim Sneh,
former governor of Israel's
West Bank Civil Administra-
tion, has been named director-
general of the Golda Meir
Association in Israel.

Hate Radio Off Air
controversial "Aryan Nations
Hour" on radio station KZZI-
AM near Salt Lake City has
been canceled by its host,
Dwight McCarthy, presumably
because the station has lost
most of its advertisers.
Station manager John Hin-
ton told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that Mc-
Carthy discontinued the week-
ly call-in program after two
shows due to sabotage at the
station in West Jordan, Utah,
including the destruction of a
satellite dish. Hinton also cited
death threats against his fami-
ly and the station's
But Hinton also acknowledg-
ed that the station had lost
almost all of its advertisers
since the "Aryan Nations"
show aired Dec. 5. The show
espoused the views of the
Aryan Nations, a white
supremacist group that ad-
vocates turning the Pacific
Northwest into an all-white
McCarthy, 87, reportedly
blamed the "liberal-Manrist-
homosexual Zionist coalition"
for his problems at the station.
He also claimed to have receiv-
ed death threats from the
Jewish Defense League.
Last week, Utah Gov. Nor-
man Bangerter and Salt Lake
City Mayor Palmer DePaulis
condemned the Aryan Nations
for its recruitment efforts in
Utah and for broadcasting its
On Dec. 5, the newly formed
Utahans Against Aryan Na-
tions held a rally against the
show in a nearby park.
Hinton said McCarthy might
reconsider broadcasting at a
later date and that McCarthy
had a constitutional right to
buy air time at the station.
McCarthy prepaid KZZI
$5,200 for a year's programm-
ing for "Aryan Nations Hour."
He had begun broadcasting at
the station in July with his
"Counter-Marxist Hour."
McCarthy has said he
prefers the appellation "white
separatist" to "white
supremacist," and broadcast
his arguments for separating
Israel Price
the races into "homelands."
The Jewish population in the
Salt Lake City area is 2,400.
Rick Trank of the Simon
Wiesenthal Center in Los
Angeles, which has been
monitoring developments at
the station, noted that the sta-
tion had lost advertisers since
first broadcasting the show,
and was drawing the ire of
At the Wiesenthal Center's
request, Rep. John Dingell (D-
Mich.) has contacted the
Federal Communications Com-
mission, which is examining
the matter. A month ago, the
FCC said it saw no "clear and
present danger" from the
7tAryan Nations Hour."
"It's our position that this
KZZI incident could repeat
itself in other cities unless
some corrective action is taken
by the FCC," Trank said.
Index Up
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli officials are concerned
about the 1.6 percent rise in the cost-of-living index in
November, which the Central Bureau of statistics announc-
ed last week.
The rise is six-tenths of a percent higher than forecast
and brings the inflation rate for the first 11 months of the
year to 14.7 percent.
The rate for all of 1987 is expected to hit 16 percent when
the December figures are released on Jan. 15

Rabin: 'Clear Conscience* About
Israel's Policy In West Bank, Gaza
Israeli Defense Minister Yit-
zhak Rabin declared that while
he regrets that Palestinians
have been killed during disrup-
tions in the West Bank and the
Gaza Strip, Israel will continue
to put down forcefully any out-
break of "public violent
disorder and terror"in the ad-
ministered territories.
"We are sorry about the loss
of life of anyone," Rabin said
in a speech at the Brookings
Institution. But he stressed
that those who engage in the
"use of public disorder, ter-
ror," must learn that "nothing
can be gained" by it
"The only way to solve the
problem is through peace
negotiaions with Jordan, with
Palestinians who are not
declared members of the
PLO," he stressed, referring
to the Palestine Liberation
Rabin, who spoke at the
Washington-based think tank
at the end of his three-day visit
here, dealt directly in his open-
ing remarks with the situation
in the West Bank and Gaza
Strip, where many Palesti-
nians and one Israeli have
been killed recently.
The defense minister was
reportedly asked that Israel
execise restraint during a
meeting with Michael Ar-
macost, undersecretary of
state for political affairs.

ever is needed to prevent it,"
he said.
Instead of participating in
violent demonstrations, the
Palestinians should tell their
leaders "to solve the problem,
seek a round of negotiations"
with Israel, Rabin said.
He said the situation could
be only be resolved when the
Arabs renounce war and ter-
ror against Israel and decide to
seek a solution through
negotiations, as did Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat.
Rabin suggested that the
current outbreak of civil
disorder was caused by the
"frustration" of the Palesti-
nians that the Arab-Israeli
conflict had received such a
low priority, first at the recent
Arab League meeting and
then at the summit meeting
between President Reagan
and Soviet leader Mikhail
He said the present situation
is "painful" for both the
Palestinians and the Israeli
soldiers and police who have to

But Rabin stressed he has a
"clear conscience "about
Israel's policy in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip. He noted
that Israel has a military
government in the territories
because it has not taken any
unilateral decision, neither an-

political solution.

Rabin said that from the ar-
mistice of 1949 to the 1967 Six-
Day War, Israel repeatedly
asked the Arabs to negotiate a
peace treaty based on the ar-
mistice lines, which would
have given the Arabs not only
the West Bank and the Gaza
Strip, but also East Jerusalem.
He added that while the
Arabs now insist that the solu-
tion to the Palestinian problem
is a Palestinian state, they
never suggested such a state
during the 19 years they oc-
cupied the territories.
Rabin also pointed out that
Israel only gained the ter-
ritories because King Hussein
of Jordan rejected pleas from
Israel, and entered the 1967
