Bush lb Use White House 'Bully Pulpit'
To Press For Israeli Peace
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak
Shamir will be asked during a U.S. visit next month to "move
forward" toward a Middle East peace, President Bush told the
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith recently.
Speaking to the group's international conference, Bush said he
will ask Shamir to "move forward in some way toward the peace
that everybody here really aspires for."
Bush said he told Foreign Minister Moshe Arens that Israel is
a "strategic ally and a lasting friend."
Bush also discussed his unusual meeting at the White House
with Rachamim Elazar, an Ethiopian Jew now living in Israel.
Bush said Elazar gave a "plea from the heart to continue the
flow of the people there who are still not able to join their people
in Israel."
Bush has been credited with playing a key role in arranging
the "Operation Moses" secret flights to rescue Ethiopian Jews.
The meeting was the second in less than a week between Bush
and a U.S. Jewish group. He also met with the Conference of
Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, in the first
of a series of regular meetings.
Referring to ADL's national director, who participated in
meeting, Bush said, "I told Abe Foxman here, 'Well, we're
practically going steady.' "
The Bush administration appears to have embarked on an
open-door policy with Jewish groups. By contrast, the Confer-
ence of Presidents seldom met with President Reagan, though
its leaders had frequent meetings with Reagan's secretary of
state, George Shultz.
Bush, who referred to the conference as the "organization of
presidents," said he looks forward to similar dialogues in the
future.
The ADL group, meeting in the Old Executive Office building,
also heard from Attorney General Dick Thornburgh, Secretary
of Housing and Urban Development Jack Kemp and White
House Chief of Staff John Sununu.
Bush's speech was largely devoted to his shared concern with
ADL to protect the "sacred right of religious freedom."
"There is no greater contribution that one organization can
make to the nation," Bush asserted. Religious freedom "can
never be taken for granted," he added, urging ADL to
"zealously" continue its work.
The president noted that ADL's annual report on anti-Semitic
incidents in the United States reported an increase during 1988.
"We must condemn all attacks on the Jewish religion, the
Jewish heritage, clearly, unequivocally and without exception,"
he said. "This nation must stand for tolerance, pluralism and a
healthy respect for the rights of all minorities."
Bush pledged to use the "bully pulpit" of the White House to
speak out "for what is just and what is right."
Arafat Offer
Termed 'Trickery'
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir had little but contempt for
Yasir Arafat's declaration that
he is ready to go to Jerusalem,
with Arab world consent, to
talk peace.
"Trickery" and "public rela-
tions stunt" were some of the
epithets used by Shamir to
dismiss the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization chairman's
statements, which were made
in a weekend interview with
the Italian newspaper La
Repubblica.
Shamir issued his reaction
during a tour of northern vil-
lages.
Shamir said it was not seri-
ous to compare Arafat's latest
proclamation to the late Egyp-
tian President Anwar Sadat's
historic visit to Jerusalem in
November 1977. "Sadat
intended peace," Shamir
explained, "while this man,
this chief murderer, intends
not peace but deception."
Shamir referred to the cur-
rent spate of attempted border
infiltrations from Lebanon as
evidence of the Palestinian ter-
ror group's determination to
thwart any advance toward a
negotiated solution.
He said that as hard as the
terrorists try to infiltrate, the
Israel Defense Force will try
even harder and with greater
perseverance to keep them
out.

Arens Denies Pressure
To Negotiate With PLO
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Israeli Foreign Minister
Moshe Arens denied Tuesday
that anyone in the Bush ad-
ministration had suggested
this week that Israel negotiate
with the Palestine Liberation
Organization.
He also said that no U.S.
official had proposed a series
of steps to ease tensions in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip,
contrary to media reports that
such suggestions would be con-
veyed.
Arens said that in his meet-
ings with administration offi-
cials Monday, he did not dwell
on Israel's opposition to the
U.S. dialogue with the PLO,
since the Israeli position that
such talks are "counterproduc-
tive" is well known.
The Israeli foreign minister
had a nearly two-hour meeting
Monday with Secretary of
State James Baker, followed
by shorter meetings with Pres-
ident Bush, Vice President
Dan Quayle and Brent Scow-
croft, the national security
adviser. He said none had sug-
gested Israel consider negoti-
ating with the PLO.
However, Baker told a con-
gressional subcommittee Tues-
day that if advancing the peace
process "takes talks with the
PLO, we should not rule that
out."
Arens had no comment when
asked about this during his
address to a luncheon spon-
sored by the Washington Insti-
tute for Near East policy.
But he made clear in his
address that the PLO cannot
be a participant in efforts to
bring about a Middle East
peace settlement.
He said the only reason
Palestinians in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip say that the
PLO is their representative is
that to do otherwise risks
being killed.
Arens said to grant the PLO
such status would also mark
the "beginning of the end" of
Jordan and its rulers and
would further the PLO's
efforts to subvert Israeli
Arabs.
The foreign minister
stressed that the negotiators
for a peace settlement should
be Jordan, the Palestinians liv-
ing in the territories and possi-
bly a third Arab country now
at war with Israel. He did not
name which on;.
When a reporter asked for
Arens' comments on an asser-
tion, made last week by a
major Israeli think tank, that
Israel cannot continue to
refuse to talk to the PLO, he
replied, "There is no shortage
of Israelis who think they
know what should be done."
Arens was in Washington to
lay the groundwork for Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir's
visit to Washington in April
and to present Israel's views
on the peace process as the
Bush administration formu-
lates its own Middle East pol-
icy.
But as Arens arrived in
Washington, the State Depart-
ment let it be known that it
plans to ask both Israel and the
PLO to take confidence build-
ing steps that could foster
an atmosphere conducive to
peace negotiations.
These include asking Israel
to reopen schools and release
some of the Palestinians im-
prisoned without trial during
the uprising. The PLO report-
edly will be asked to bring a
halt to violent demonstrations

Kissinger Urges Interim Self-Rule
By DAVID FRIEDMAN and
HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Former Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger is urging the
Bush administration to encour-
age efforts for an interim
arrangement in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip, rather than
press for a final settlement
leading to a Palestinian state.
But the head of an Arab-
American group rejected that
concept.
Writing in his syndicated
column, which appeared in The
Washington Post. Kissinger
said that an interim arrange-
ment for Palestinian self-rule
should be worked out with the
inhabitants of the territories,
not the Palestine Liberation
Organization.
"The dialogue between the
United States and the PLO
Dr. Henry Kissinger
could help provide a frame-
work for such a transition,"
Kissinger said.
"Any serious diplomatic
efforts" must recognize that
"conditions for a final settle-
ment simply do not now exist;
Israel cannot be asked simul-
taneously to give up territories
and to establish a PLO state,"
Kissinger said.
He added, "A Palestinian
state can emerge only after
Israelis and Palestinians have
learned to live side by side in
dignity." He suggested a per-
iod of self-rule of about five
years.
Kissinger said such a transi-
tional period "will test
whether coexistence between
Israel and a Palestinian politi-
cal unit is in fact possible
before a final political settle-
ment is negotiated."
He said such an approach
would not totally exclude the
PLO since most of those elect-
ed would be PLO supporters.

TOVAH FELDSHUH: ON UNIQUENESS
One of the great
motivating forces in my lite
is uniqueness. As an actress
uniqueness is important,
because acting is more than
just role-playing. It
requires being able to
expose a quality that is
uniquely you.
In other areas of my lite.
I look for uniqueness. Even
in my decallcinated coffee.
Sanka- Brand Decallcinated
Caffcc is unique, because
it's the only leading.

potential to be unique. All
we need is to experience that

Belgium
to Allow
PLO Contact
By YOSSI LEMPKOWICZ
BRUSSELS (JTA) Bel-
gium will now allow its diplo-
mats to accept official invita-
tions from the Palestine Liber-
ation Organization.
A Belgian Foreign Ministry
official told reporters that the
move is designed "to ease con-
tacts with the PLO and
encourage moderation and
readiness for dialogue."
But the official said it was
.not to be interpreted as recog-
nition of the Palestinian state
declared by representatives of
the Palestine National Council
at their meeting in Algiers last
November.
Nor is the PLO's diplomatic
status in Belgium being chang-
ed, the spokesman stressed.
The PLO, which has opened
embassies in several countries
that have recognized the state
of Palestine, has only an infor-
mation bureau in Brussels.

Viewpoint
Free Thought
It is incredibly ironic that in the midst of the
Salman Rushdie affair, there should be two
parallel incidents suggesting that restriction
of thought and expression is as widespread in
the western world as it is in the east.
While Rushdie remains in hiding for fear of
his life after a death threat by the Ayatollah
Khomeini following the publication of "The
Satanic Verses," singers in South Florida
were banned from the Calle Ocho street
festival and Israelis awoke to an outraged
scandal at the suggestion that Adolf Hitler's
"Mein Kamph" might be published in Hebrew
and in Israel.
The Little Havana flap centered on the fact
that entertainers might have sung in Cuba
prior to their political rebirth. Their loyalty to
an idea that of an anti-Castro Cuban
philosophy was called into question.
The Israeli issue should something as
hateful as Hitler's racist ideology, something
as hurtful as his ethic diatribes be available in
a country peopled by the fascist's survivors?
Many are answering "no," just as the Little
Havana Kiwanis Club did in the local free
speech controversy.
The idea of restricting thought and its
expression is exactly what Hitler sold to its
extreme. The Third Reich was built upon
restrictions: of faith, of "race"; of religion; of
a people.
To ban what he wrote, to deny its availa-
bility in the people's language, in this case,
Hebrew to withhold the possibility that
young people might learn how their parents'
world was bastardized before it was cremated
is to follow the questionable example of the
perpetrator of the Holocaust.
Such a move is an obscenity, no matter its
venue.

LBttBtS .... from our readers:
EDITOR:
It was most gratifying to see
The Jewish Floridian publish a
letter in support of the Pol-
lards.
The sentence of Anne Pol-
lard is ahsolutely without pre-
cedent in American treatment
of the wife or lover of a spy,
with the notable exception of
Ethel Rosenberg (also a Jew).
Anne's role was so incidental
and minuscule that one must
wonder why she was even pro-
secuted, especially since the
grand jury refused to indict
her. "Grotesque" is the kind-
est word to describe the im-
prisonment and treatment of
this acutely ill woman who
needs a specialist's attention
Pollard Campaign
that she cannot receive in
prison.
A careless charge against
Jonathan is "treason," a
charge made even by Caspar
Weinberger, lawyer, secretary
of defense. "Just" the Consti-
tution contradicts him. Much
as "contrary to all legal proce-
dure, the (French) ministry of
war had placed a file of secret
documents (part of which were
forgeries) before the tribunal"
trying Dreyfus in camera
(Encyclopedia Judaica, Vol. 6,
page 226).
Weinberger, just a day
before Jonathan Pollard's sen-
tencing, presented a classified
affidavit in camera to U.S.
District Court Judge Aubrey
Robinson. In view of Weinber-
ger's shrill cries of "treason"
and call to have Jonathan
hanged or shot, can anyone be
confident that Weinberger's
classified affidavit was more to
be credited than the French
war ministry's?
Israel does not abandon its
wounded in the field. For three
captured soldiers, Israel sev-
eral years ago released about
1,500 Arab prisoners, many
convicted terrorists. It is time
that the Jewish communities
of the United States and Israel
mount a campaign of no less
magnitude to free the Pol-
lards.

A Decade of Camp David:
Catalyzing The Peace Process
By IRA SILVERMAN
March 26 marks the ioth
anniversary of the Israeli-
Egyptian peace agreement.
The path to reaching the ac-
cord, through Camp David,
was tortuous; and implement-
ing it, with the Israeli with-
drawal from Sinai settlements,
oil fields and air bases, was
painful.
The peace has not been
overly warm. Nonetheless, the
agreement stands as the only
peace pact between Israel and
any of the neighboring Arab
states.
Its merits have been argued
in both Israel and Egypt.
Some Israeli hawks still call it
a dangerous mistake, but there
is a near-universal Israeli rec-
ognition of the relief from the
threat of war, and of the bene-
fit of a first welcome into the
Middle East.
Egypt has its skeptics, too:
Islamic fundamentalists, radi-
cal leftists, and a residue of
Nasserite pan-Arabists all
deride the peace with Israel. A
visit to Cairo last month, how-
ever, convinced an American
Jewish Committee delegation
that Egyptian leadership is
firmly committed to the peace.
President Hosni Mubarak
expressed his absolute attach-
ment to maintaining and
improving Egyptian-Israeli
relations. He was credible in
part on the basis of his record,
but also because of his per-
sonal magnetism.
Mubarak became president
seven years ago by accident,
upon the assassination of
Anwar Sadat on Oct. 6, 1981.
There was little reason at the
time to expect that the new

president would become a
charismatic leader.
It was a surprise, therefore,
for his AJCommittee guests to
see just how "presidential" he
has become. He filled the large
reception room of his office in
the Presidential Palace with
his presence.
Emphasizing his commit-
ment to the Egyptian-Israeli
peace, he described to the
group various cooperative ven-
tures already in place, espe-
cially in desert agricultural
technology.
He rued the paucity of Egyp-
tian tourism to Israel (in con-
trast with heavy Israel tourism
to Egypt), explaining that
most Egyptians are poor and
cannot afford to travel.
President Mubarak expres-
sed the hope that Israeli-
Egyptian relations would
become warmer, and dismis-
sed recent nasty items about
Israel appearing in the Egyp-
tian media as the excesses of a
free press.
The only negative senti-
ment he conveyed to his visi-
tors was couched in positive-
sounding language: Israeli-
Egyptian ties will improve
markedly only upon the initia-
tion of active Israeli-Palesti-
nian peace talks.
On that issue, the president
broke some new ground by in-
sisting that an international
peace conference gives Israel
no grounds for fear, because
no party, including Syria,
would have the right to veto
successful, mutually agreeable
peace arrangements made bi-
laterally between Israel and
Palestinians, Israel and Jor-
dan, Israel and Lebanon, etc.
As he envisions such a con-
ference, it would include a
brief convening meeting with
international representation,
and would move quickly to
concurrent bilateral negotia-
tions between Israel and its
various neighboring parties to
the conflict.
The outside "conveners"
might include, according to
Mubarak, the United States,
the Soviet Union, Great Brit-
ain, France, maybe Italy, and
of course Egypt.
Even more ticklish than the
international representation at
such a conference a major
source of objection on the part
of Likud leadership is the
composition of a Palestinian
delegation.
President Mubarak rec-
ommended a mix of West
Bank and local residents and
"outside" Palestinian exile
leaders, presumably associ-
ated with the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization, but not ne-
cessarily including Yasir Ara-
fat.
As for Aralat, the Egyptian
president took credit for hav-
ing persuaded the PLO chair-
man to meet the U.S. call for
recognition of Israel, renuncia-
tion of terrorism, etc.
Mubarak argued that despite
recent attempted acts of Pale-
stinian terrorism, Arafat was
sincere in his pledge just
unable to fulfill it, as a result of
some rivals who seek to "put
him in an awkward position."
It was easier for the Ameri-
can Jewish guests to believe
Mubarak as sincere because,
despite agitation from various
rivals of his own within Egypt,
he has been steadfast in his
advocacy of Camp David the
Israel-Egyptian part, that is;
he clearly sees the Palestinian
framework of the 10-year-old
pact as in need of renovation.
And he sees himself as a poten-
tial chief architect.
Not surprisingly, Mubarak
sees Egypt as playing the key
convening role in an interna-
tional conference along with
the United States and the
Soviet Union, 'despite the ap-
parently cosmetic inclusion of
the Europeans.
A bit of chutzpah, perhaps,
but it was not impossible to
imagine this man, who seemed
unexpectedly driven to make
a place in history for himself,
joining with the superpower

to try.

Sweden Postpones Ban
On Kosher Poultry
Al Golden Named
To Hospice Board
By SUSAN BIRNBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA) Inter-
vention by American rabbini-
cal groups has staved off for
the present a Swedish govern-
ment ban on the slaughtering
of kosher poultry.

the Rabbinical Council of
America, the Union of Ortho-
Fresh
Refusals of
Soviet Jews
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The Soviet Union has given
"fresh refusals" to Jews wish-
ing to emigrate who were
allegedly privy to state
secrets, refusenik Judith Lurie
told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency.
"We have several refuseniks
for state secrets who have
never had any secrets before. I
am speaking about the fresh
refusals," Lurie said from
Moscow in a telephone confer-
ence call placed by B'ani B'rith
International.
In addition, "those old refu-
seniks who happen to be in
contact with secrets more than
10, 15 and 25 years also have
been given fresh refusals," she
said.
On another issue, Lurie said
the new Jewish cultural center
in Moscow, the Solomon Mik-
hoels Center, which opened
Feb. 12, has been closed tem-
porarily for "repairs." But she
did not blame the closing on
any political foul play.
Lurie spoke after
B'nai B'rith leaders in 10 coun-
tries and five states praised
her role in a hunger strike
planned by 46 refuseniks
belonging to Jewish Women
Against Refusal.
The first day of the hunger
strike, held annually since
1987, coincides with Interna-
tional Women's Day.

in the territories and to pre-
vent its member groups from
attempting to infiltrate Israel
from Lebanon.
But Arens insisted Baker
"did not say anything like that
to me." However, he added,
"we did discuss the impor-
tance of reducing tensions in
the area, bringing down the
scope and the level of violence
that we have to deal with."
Arens told his listeners "if
anyone has a prescription of
how it will be done, I would
certainly welcome it. It is a
very difficult problem, and
there is no magic solution."
The foreign minister did
point out that Israel already
has released some prisoners
in the Gaza Strip, has begun
reopening schools there and
intends to reduce the visibility
of Israeli troops in the terri-
tories.
dox Jewish Congregations of
America and Agudath Israel of
America made an emergency
visit to the Swedish consul
general in New York to gain
time for Swedish Jews to con-
tinue the practice of shehita of
fowl, which Sweden declared
inhumane in legislation passed
last September.
B'nai B'rith International
also has been involved in
orchestrating what it called a
"worldwide protest" of the
Swedish ban.
The Swedish government
had originally given the Jewish
community a moratorium on
the ban until March 1, afte.
previous intercession by Jew-
ish groups. This time, Jewish
groups who sanction, service
or observe the practice of
kashrut in America have
interceded as representatives
of world Jewry and succeeded
in extending the moratorium
until June 30.
The groups have also invited
a delegation from the Swedish
Department of Agriculture to
come to America to observe
shehita in an attempt to per-
suade them that the practice is
humane.
In Sweden, slaughterhouses
stun their prey before killing
them. But this practice is con-
trary to Jewish law.
Because fowl may not legally
be imported into Sweden, the
shehita ban would leave the
Jewish community there with
no souce of kosher poultry.
Obtaining .kosher meat is not
a new problem in Sweden,
which banned kosher slaugh-
ter of cows and sheep in 1937.
Jewish groups claim the ban
stems from the influence of
Nazi propaganda at that time.
The extension of the ban to
poultry would mark the first
time a European government
has banned kosher slaughter
since the Nazi era.

Why ADL is Going to Jerusalem Now.
The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai Brith believes the time has come for the Jewish
community to publicly show its solidarity with Israel, and we are enthusiastically supporting the
Prime Minister's Solidarity Conference in Jerusalem.
We believe that too many enemies of Israel and of the American Jewish community have
mistaken the open communal discussion of Israel's current difficulties and the legitimate
differences within our own community as a withdrawal of our general support for Israel.
Even among some of our friends, there is a growing perception that the long-established,
previously unshakable network of support for Israel among American Jews may be weakening.
The cumulative effect of that perception, no matter how false, could be the steady
erosion of the political support Israel has long enjoyed in Washington with potentially disastrous
consequences for Israel's security and future.
ADL believes continuing American Jewish community concern and support for Israel
must be clearly and unambiguously demonstrated to the American political community and the
world.
Action is needed.
For ADL, the beginning of action is to participate in a conference supported by all major
political parties and leaders in Israel, to clearly declare the extent of Solidarity in Israel, and
Solidarity with Israel.
Despite all the discussions and the political and media attention given to our differences,
critical common ground is still shared by Israelis, American Jews, and American government
decision makers. That common ground reflects the fundamental legitimacy of Israel's position in
its quest for peace, and begins with unity on the need for direct negotiations without
preconditions.
There is unity on the need for interim solutions that will adequately demonstrate that
Arabs and Palestinians are more committed to coexistence than destruction.
There is unity in opposition to imposed solutions, because outside pressure will generate
illusions about Israeli weakness and lead to conflict, not peace.
There is unity in opposition to violence and terrorism as a means of negotiation, because
violence begets more violence, and is contrary to the peace process Israel wants and
needs so badly.
ADL is going to Jerusalem to let our own people hear and to let the world hear that we
are one, and that we understand that nobody wants peace more than Israel, nobody.
We still talk about what our grandparents, our parents, and we did or did not do to help
the Jews of Europe during the Holocaust. Our new trial is upon us. How will history judge us?
How will we judge ourselves?

Swiss Help Egypt Build Chemical Warfare Facility
GENEVA (JTA) Swiss

confirmed that Egypt has been
expanding its chemical war-
fare capability with the help of
a major Swiss company.

The New York Times, said
Swiss officials had "reason to

Eitan who was also a mem-

Yoram Sheftel and spilled a 30
percent concentrated acid in
his face.
Sheftel was rushed to the
hospital, where doctors treat-
ed damage to one eye.
During the court sessions,
Yehezkeli refused to express
regret over the attack. On the
contrary, he declared that he
was proud he had taken the
action. He did regret, though,
the fact that he had also hurt
the bystander.
Yehezkeli faces a maximum

A Plea For Medical Help Potential
for Soviet
The husband of a Margate
woman who must receive a
liver transplant within a year
and a half, has put out a public
plea for help to pay part of the
$250,000 hospital bill.
Jeannette Dix has been
immobilized by the disease
since it struck in 1985. Nor-
man Dix, who recently retired
after working in the meat
department at Publix for 18
years, said he learned that his
family insurance policy doesn't
cover organ transplants. He
also said Mrs. Dix is not old
enough for Medicare, which
would not cover organ transpl-
ants anyway.

Hosts For Israeli Students
High school students from
Israel and more than 20 other
countries are scheduled to
come to the U.S. in late
August to live with families
and attend school.
The Israeli students require
hospitality for approximately
five months; the others come
for a stay of 10 months. Offers
of hospitality are needed.
The program is run by the
Open Door Student Exchange,
founded in 1963 as a not-for-
profit organization.
An active scholarship pro-
gram enables both American
and foreign students to have
an international experience
abroad. In recent years, Open
Door has been the recipient of
10 American government
grants to help students partici-
pate in one of its programs.
Families interested in host-
ing a foreign student, or send-
ing their own child abroad,
should telephone the Open
Door toll free, 800/366/OPEN
(6736); or write: Open Door,
250 Fulton Avenue, P.O.B. 71,
Hempstead, NY 11551.
Host families are entitled to
take a modest tax deduction
(charitable contribution) for
each month they host a foreign
student. In addition Open
Door offers scholarship assis-
tance if their own child wishes
to go abroad or have the schol-
arship awarded to a student in
their host high school.
Scapegoating
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Jews will be made the scape-
goats if the Soviet Union's
attempts at economic reforms
do not benefit the average
Soviet citizen, a longtime re-
fusenik who immigrated to
Israel only last month warned.
The economic improvements
have not yet brought any tan-
gible benefits to the Soviet
people and their discontent
could soon be directed against
Jews, Roald (Alec) Zelichonok
told the Union of Councils for
Soviet Jews.
Zelichonok and his wife, Gal-
ina, both engineers from
Leningrad, had first applied to
nigrate in 1978, but had been
denied repeatedly on grounds
of possession of state secrets.
A well-known Hebrew teacher,
Zelichonok was sentenced in
1985 to three years in prison
for "defamation of the Soviet
state."
He was released along with

Baker Moderated Soviet Push
By REINHARD ENGEL
VIENNA (JTA) U.S.
Secretary of State James
Baker rejected Soviet calls for
a Middle East peace confer-
ence, saying such a gathering
would be "counterproductive
at this time."
Baker made the remark at
his first meeting with Soviet
Foreign Minister Eduard She-
vardnadze since assuming
office in January. Their meet-
ing was described as friendly,
despite a number of differ-
ences on policy matters.
The two men were here for
an East-West conference
whose major goal is a three-
stage reduction in non-nuclear
weapons and military person-
nel in Europe. There were also
discussions on human rights.
Baker said the human rights
situation in the Soviet Union
Child Survivors
of WWII Plan
50 Year Reunion
By BEHNAM DAYANIM
NEW YORK (JTA) The
beneficiaries of a British gov-
ernment campaign that took
place 50 years ago and ulti-
mately rescued 10.000 Jewish
children from Nazi persecution
by resettling them in Great
Britain plan a huge worldwide
reunion this June.
The campaign was known as
Operation Kindertrannport,
and the rescued "children," as
those saved still call them-
selves, now live throughout
the world.
The Kindcrlriins/iiirl was
especially significant at the
time, as it marked a radical
liberalization of Britain's im-
migration laws.
That set the precedent that
eventually made the U.K. one
of the most generous countries
in the world in accepting Jew-
ish refugees, according to
Judith Tydor-Baumel, coordin-
ator of Holoeuast studies at
Tel Aviv Open University.
Jewish groups in Britain lob-
bied vigorously Tor the change,
and were supported by several
influential members of Parlia-
ment.
Ultimately, it was Crime
Minister Neville Chamber-
lain's desire to appease British
public opinion, following his
highly unpopular different sort
of appeasement of Hitler at
Munich, that carried the day.
The transports began Dec. 2,
ly.'W, three weeks after Kris-
lnllnach.t. and continued right
up until the outbreak of World
War II.
Organized by two sisters,
Bertha Leverton of England
and Inge Sadan of Jerusalem,
the June 20-21 affair will be
held in Harrow, Middlesex.
Over 1,200 people are sched-
uled to attend, including chil-
dren and their families, some
of those involved in organizing
the operation, British govern
ment officials and beloved
World War II radio personal-
ity Vera Lynn.
An added touch to the affair
will be the presence of good
Samaritans who volunteered
their services to care for the
refugees.
had improved through last
December when Soviet
President Mikhail Gorbachev
visited New York.
But since then, not very
much has happened, the sec-
retary of state said.
The hour-long meeting
between the two men took
place without the presence of
aides. Following that, arms
control experts were called in
to participate.
Baker told his Soviet coun-
terpart the United States was
not ready to go along with an
international conference on
the Middle East. Instead, the
Bush administration favors
direct talks between Israel and
the Palestinians, he said.
Baker told Shevardnadze
that as far as the Middle East
is concerned, "more work at
the ground level" has to be
done before a peace confer-
ence can be organized.
Diplomacy was not intended
to be dealt with in front of
television lights, he added.
Diplomatic sources later said
the two had stuck > generalit-
ies, as both parties realized
that no specific details could be
discussed before Israeli Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir's
visit next month to Washing-
ton.
Baker said he would meet
with Shevardnadze in Geneva
in May to resume their discus-
sion.
The East-West conference
was opened here officially by
Austrian President Kurt
Waldheim. This duty brought
him some relief from his gen-
eral isolation.
During the recently con-
cluded, 35-nation Conference
on Security and Cooperation in
Europe, no foreign minister
came to visit Waldheim, who
has been ostracized for his
apparent link to Nazi wartime
atrocities.
Jewish Officers Among
Katyn Massacre Victims
By JAMES P. RICE
CHICAGO (JTA) At least
262 Jewish officers were
among the over 4,000 Polish
officers whom the current Pol-
ish government now states
were massacred by the Soviet
Union in World War II.
This was reported by Harvey
Sarner of Chicago and Lon-
don, an independent research-
er, who is writing a book on
Polish World War II General
Wladyslaw Anders.
The Polish government
recently reopened the issue on
which their Soviet colleagues
have thus far made no public
comment.
When the Nazis discovered
the victims of the Katyn mas-
sacre near Smolensk in 1943,
they blamed the action on the
Soviets, who in turn blamed
the Nazis.
A major source of Sarner's
information is a 1988 periodi-
cal, Niepodleglosc (Independ-
ence) of the Pilsudski Institute
of London, dedicated to the
most recent information on
Polish history.
Bush Pledge on Ethiopian Jewry
WASHINGTON (JTA) President Bush gave Ethiopian
Jewry leaders his personal commitment to help an estimated
17,000 Jews hoping to leave Ethiopia for Israel, according to
Rachamim Elazar, chairman of the National Association of
Ethiopian Jews in Israel.
In the first meeting between a U.S. president and an
Ethiopian Jew, Bush told Elazar that he would consider a
variety of political efforts to assist the Jews in leaving.

For Solidarity Conference
Baker to Request
$100,000 in Refugee Funds
By ANDREW SILOW CARROLL
NEW YORK (JTA) Israeli
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir has been largely successful
in rallying leaders of American
Jewish organizations behind
his "Conference on Jewish Sol-
idarity With Israel," taking
place in Jerusalem March 20 to
22.
But there is some ambiva-
lence about the event, even
among those who are partici-
pating. Some are wary that
Shamir will use the gathering,
which comes just weeks before
his meetings in Washington
with the Bush administration,
as proof that American Jewry
stands firmly behind the Likud
leader's political agenda.
Close to 1,000 hand-picked
Jewish leaders from the
United States and elsewhere
are expected at the confer-
ence, described by Shamir's
office as an attempt to form a

Transferred

TEL AVIV (JTA) Egypt
deposited $38.15 million in a
Swiss bank account, complet-
ing the bills of sale for the Avia
Sonesta Hotel and the Rafi
Nelson Resort Village in Taba.
The transaction removed the
last obstacle to the transfer of
the Taba enclave and its tour-

ownership and control, on
Wednesday.
Israeli army engineers spent
Tuesday, moving the Israeli
frontier control post some 100
yards north to the Israeli side
of the new border, while Egyp-
tian workers put up similar
facilities on Egypt's side of the
border.
The Egyptians also were
paving gravel and sand path-
ways, which had previously
lent a rustic aspect to the
resort area.
The Hebrew signs in the
former Avia Sonesta Hotel,
now renamed the Taba Son-
esta Hotel, have already been
replaced by signs in Arabic.
And the hotel staff, including
the switchboard, are already

WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The State Department is about
to ask Congress to increase
funding for resettling refugees
by $100 million, Secretary of
State James Baker told Con-
gress.
But a spokeswoman for the
Office of Management and
budget said Baker's announce-
ment, made during a hearing
of the House Appropriations
subcommittee on foreign oper-
ations, was premature.
Foggy Bottom also was
caught off guard by Baker's
revelation, with State Depart-1
ment refugee affairs spokes-
woman Sheppy Abramowitz
having no initial reaction.
OMB spokeswoman Barbara
Clay said such a request will
soon be made as part of a
supplemental aid request for
the current 1990 fiscal year,
which will cover other areas of
government spending.
The revelation comes just
two weeks after a bill was
introduced in Congress by
Sens. Edward Kennedy (D-

three days about the request.
But Rep. David Obey (D-Wis.),
the subcommittee chairman,
told the secretary of state that
was the first time he had heard
about it.

The Court At Palm-Aire
"Tbe Court at
Palm Aire doesn't
just have Lifecare.
It's got style."
Lillian T. Alpert
"I was looking for a Lifecare community
because I wanted peace of mind. Knowing extra care is
there if I need it. But I'm used to a certain standard of
living, too. And, frankly, I was disappointed until I saw
The Court at Palm-Aire
"It's in Palm-Aire, one of Florida's premier
communities, with its world-class spa, golf courses, and
ocean beach club. Then there's The Court itself. Spacious,
elegant public areas. Roomy, attrac-
tive apartments. Delicious meals in
a contemporary dining room. A full
calendar of recreational and social
activities. Not to mention the com-
pany of interesting people like
myself. Plus a new, fully-licensed, Medicare-approved
Healthcare Center. Now I've got both peace or mind
and the lifestyle I always wanted."

Mubarak
Praised
Israel
on Taba
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Egyp-
tian President Hosni Mubarak
warmly praised Israel for
peaceably relinquishing the
Taba beach resort to Egypt
and suggested it augured well
for Arab-Israel relations.
But he also criticized the
Jewish state for taking "stum-
bling" steps in the peace pro-
cess with the Palestinians, say-
ing Israel's "resort to vio-
lence" in trying to quell the
15-month-long intifada "can
only breed more violence."
In what was described as a
"major and important
address" to the Egyptian Par-
liament, convened to celebrate
Egypt's new sovereignty over
Taba, Mubarak said Israel had
fulfilled all its obligations
under the Israeli-Egyptian
peace treaty, which was signed
10 years ago this Sunday.
Addressing the Egyptian
people in his televised speech,
Mubarak repeated the mes-
sage of amity and peace he
delivered at Taba when the
Egyptian flag was officially
hoisted over the enclave.
He also reiterated a call on
Israelis not to fear the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization
and to be willing to meet its
representatives for negotia-
tions.
He said the fulfillment of the
Taba agreement would help
spread an atmosphere of
"peace and reconciliation,"
not only in relations between
Egypt and Israel, but also
between Israel and other Arab
countries.
