U.S. Presses PLO; Shamir Pushes Aliyah
France, UK, Egypt
Called On For Help
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The United States has enlisted
the help of France, Great Brit-
ain, Egypt and other countries
in lobbying the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization to take a
clearer stand against the
attack one of its constituent
groups tried to stage last
month on beaches near Tel
Aviv.
The diplomatic effort was
revealed by Secretary of State
James Baker during a hearing
of the Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee.
His disclosure points to the
great lengths taken by the
United States to pressure the
PLO into making statements
that would allow the two par-
ties to continue their nearly
18-month-old dialogue.
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel
claimed that it had "additional
proof of the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization's involve-
ment in terrorist activity
against Israel.
According to the govern-
ment, three armed Palestini-
ans captured in the southern
Lebanon security zone by
Israel's allied South Lebanon
Army belong to the PLO's
mainstream Fatah faction,
which is directly responsible to
Yasir Arafat.
"The PLO knows exactly
what it has to do," a well-
placed State Department offi-
cial said.
Britain, which has an anti-
terrorism policy done to that
of the United States, has asked
the PLO to "take steps against
any of their members who
have been involved" in the
raid, said an official of the
British Embassy here.
The French Embassy's chief
Middle East expert said his
country has simply conveyed
the "reality" of the U.S. posi-
tion to the PLO.
In principle, France does not
believe the PLO has to meet
U.S. demands as a condition
for continuing the dialogue,
said Gerard Araud, first
secretary at the embassy.
Araud said the French gov-
ernment has "no reason to
doubt" Arafat's claim that he
was not aware of the raid
beforehand. On that basis, the
PLO chief should not have to
make concessions "for some-
thing you are not responsible
for,' he said.
Baker said the United States
will make the decision without
the pressure of "artificial
deadlines." The reference
appears to be aimed at Israel
and its supporters, who have
already called for the dialogue
to be terminated.
The secretary of state said
the decision would have
"important implications" for
the Arab-Israeli peace process,
but that the United States
would not allow its pursuit of
peace to "undercut the U.S.
stand against terrorism.
Both Vice President Dan
Quayle and Defense Secretary
Dick Cheney told the 31st
annual policy conference of the
American Israel Public Affairs
Committee that the President
Bush had not yet made a deci-
sion on whether to suspend the
dialogue in the aftermath of a
foiled terrorist attack against
Israel last month by a PLO
constituent group.
The PLO issued a statement
from its headquarters in Tunis

CONFIDENCE SHOWS Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir
Soviet Trade Waiver
Urged By Moynihan
NEW YORK (JTA) Sen.
Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-
N.Y.) urged President Bush to
grant most-favored-nation
trade status to the Soviet
Union now by waiving provi-
sions of the Jackson-Vanik
Amendment for one year.
In Indianapolis, meanwhile,
the executive committee of the
National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council
adopted a resolution urging
those in the Jewish community
relations field to "support the
President when he invokes the
waiver provision of Jackson-
Vanik."
A spokesman for NJCRAC,
an umbrella group of 13
national Jewish organizations
and 117 local community rela-
tions councils, explained that
the resolution's intent is to
urge communities to support
the President in any battle he
may have with Congress over

Likud Has
Slim Edge
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Israel has reacted with hurt
and astonishment to the stern
rebuke it got from U.S. Secret-
ary of State James Baker dur-
ing his appearance before the
House Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee in Washington.
The secretary bluntly
accused Israel of not being
serious about peace. Attempts
by the Bush administration to
soften the blow did little to
soothe injured feelings here.
With their new government
in office only a few days the
Israelis feel unfairly pushed by
their American allies.
"Never mind 100 days of
grace, they're not even giving
the new government 100 nours
of grace," Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir's spokesman,
Avi Pazner, said.
"A little patience would be
in place to give the new gov-
ernment a chance to formulate
its policy," Pazner added.
Israeli officials complained
that President Bush had not
bothered telephoning Shamir
to congratulate him on form-
ing a new government, by a
slim 62 to 57 majority, nor had
he responded to Shamir's ear-
lier message of congratula-
tions on the president's 66th
birthday.
Nor has there been any
American response yet to
broad hints from the new fore-
ign minister, David Levy, for
an early invitation to Washing-
ton to meet with Bush and
Baker.

Florida Hate Crimes Grow
Neo-Nazis Strike In Orlando
By ELENA NEUMAN
NEW YORK (JTA) A
neo-Nazi skinhead incident in
Orlando, has brought to light
the problem of hate-group
activity in Florida and the
steps that are currently being
taken to combat it.
"Hate-motivated crime is a
serious problem," said Arthur
Teitelbaum, Florida regional
director of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith. "At the moment we're
seeing a distressing increase in
these crimes."
Florida, which reported 66
incidents of bias-related crime
in 1989, is one of the "big
five," the states with the high-
est number of reported hate
crimes in the country, accord-
ing to the ADL annual Audit of
Anti-Semitic Incidents.
Latest incident occurred
June 4 at a housing project in
Orlando, where a group of
neo-Nazi skinheads sprayed
the outer walls of an apart-
ment with swastikas and anti-
Semitic slogans and shattered
windows with large iron bars.
The victim, Richard Nichols,
was not Jewish, but had once
been married to a Jewish
woman. The four shaven-
headed youths, all 18 and 19
years old, are self-proclaimed
white supremacists and punk
rockers.
All parties involved were
intoxicated, according to the
Orlando Police Department
report, and the incident took
on some of the characteristics
of a drunken brawl. The
crimes are nevertheless pun-

WASHINGTON Soviet leaders may

SEATTLE Leaders of the Union of

WASHINGTON The support of most
Jewish organizations for the Civil Rights
Act of 1990 could tip the balance on
whether President Bush vetoes or sign the
bill.

ishable under Florida's Hate
Crimes Act for their overt
anti-Semitic intent.
The youths were arrested
and charged with kidnapping,
aggravated assault, burglary,
criminal mischief, impersonat-
ing a police officer and inter-
fering with a police officer.
"They are nothing but a
bunch of punks coming from
middle- class, white homes,"
said Randy Means, spokesman
for the Orlando state attorney.
"Gangs like these are becom-
ing a larger and larger prob-
lem."
In May, windows in an
Orlando synagogue were shot
out and two weeks ago,
Orlando police were tipped off
to a neo-Nazi telephone
recording which featured seg-
ments of Hitler's speeches and
lessons in how to kill a Jew.
The recording was discon-
nected as soon as the police
began to investigate.
Orlando has experienced tre-
mendous growth over the last
decade. Means attributes the
increasing bias-related vio-
lence to the growing number
of minorities that have moved
into the city. As he says, "we
were just a country city until
10 years ago."
But Orlando is not the only
city in Florida experiencing
violence of this type. In
Tampa, swastikas were
recently painted on the walls
of an apartment complex and
at a construction site.
The entire state, with its
high concentrations of Hispa-
nic immigrants and post-
retirement Jews, has been
experiencing heightened eth-
nic conflict.
"Florida's high level of hate
crime incidents is partially due
to its large Jewish commun-
ity," said Alan Schwartz,
director of the ADL's research
and evaluation department.
"They provide more targets of
opportunity for organized Ku
Klux Klan," neo- Nazi and
New Alliance Party activity.
But Teitelbaum thinks the
problem is more socio-
economic than ethnic. "Bias
crimes are not geographically
specific. They occur in greater
frequency where there is a
considerable amount of eco-
nomic and social dislocation.
Many times these crimes occur
as a consequence of organized
extremist groups trying to
exploit intergroup tensions,"
he said.
Because of the seriousness
of the hate-crimes problem,
the Florida State Legislature
last year passed one of the
toughest hate-crimes acts in
the country. It became effec-
tive in October 1989.
Soviet Trade Waiver
Urged By Moynihan

a waiver.
Resolution suggested Bush
should issue the waiver "in
response to Soviet assurances
that would clearly enunciate
the fundamental right to leave
and return."
But it did not say the Presi-
dent should insist on Soviet
adoption of promised legisla-
tion that would codify reforms
in emigration policy.
In New York, Moynihan said
the Jackson-Vanik waiver
should be granted "without
the impediment of any addi-
tional conditions that did not
appear in the original legisla-
tion," an apparent reference
to the campaign in Congress to
link the waiver to Lithuania's
bid for independence.
Current Soviet emigration
rate, which could mean as
many as 120,000 Jews leave
the country this year, more
than fulfills the amendment's
waiver requirement, he said.
The senator also called for
the Soviet Union's help in
repealing the 1975 U.N. reso-
lution equating Zionism with
racism. He urged the Soviet
Union to "take a leadership
role in the growing interna-
tional campaign to repeal the
obscene 1975 U.N. General
Assembly resolution."
Launching a bi-lateral agreement to increase tourism between France and Israel, representatives
of the Israel Ministry of Tourism, Air France and Jet Vacations met in New York recently to
create new travel packages between New York, Paris and Israel. Left to right Allen J. Stolz,

NEW YORK (JTA) Nel-
son Mandela and Natan Shar-
ansky have agreed in principle
to meet in the United States
during the African National
Congress leader's upcoming
visit here, an American Jewish
leader confirmed.
"Both sides have indicated
that they are interested in the
meeting," said Abraham Fox-
man, national director of the
Anti- Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith. "Now it's a ques-
tion of working out logistics
and scheduling.'
The ADL leader said he
believed "it would be appropri-
ate for two prisoners of consci-
ence of our generation," to
"meet to exchange their expe-
riences and dialogue toward
understanding and common
ground."
Foxman spoke upon his
return from meeting with
Mandela in Geneva, along with
leaders of other Jewish organi-

and Amman, declaring, "We
remain against any military
action which targets civilians,
regardless of the nature of
such action, and we condemn
it."
Many of the 1,500 persons
attending the AIPAC confer-
ence had clearly anticipated
that Quayle would announce a
suspension of the PLO dia-
logue, if not a complete break.
Although the vice president
was frequently applauded and
received a standing ovation at
the end of his speech, there
was an audible gasp of disap-
ejintment when he said that
ush had not yet made a deci-
sion.
But they did applaud when
Quayle said, "President Bu3h
will make the right decision."
Thomas Dine, AIPAC's
executive director, called for
the administration to end the
dialogue in his address to the
conference Sunday night.
"The dialogue has failed,"
he said. "And the administra-
tion has no choice but to sus-
pend it."
zations. At the meeting, Man-
dela apologized for statements
he may have made offending
Jews and expressed support
for the State of Israel.
Foxman said that the plans
for the meeting grew out of an
exchange with Mandela at the
meeting. Mandela told the
delegation he was not sure if
he would have time to meet
with American Jewish leaders
while in the United States.
"I said it would be better if
you met with Natan Shar-
ansky, a friend of mine and a
hero of the Jewish people,"
Foxman recounted.
JOHANNESBURG (JTA) -
Nelson Mandela made his
peace with South African
Jewry at a meeting here June
4.
As he would do in Geneva six
days later, the African
National Congress' deputy
president apologized to a
group of Jewish leaders for
remarks made after his release
from prison in February that
might have offended the Jew-
ish community.
Mandela has been critical of
Israel's policies and supportive
of the Palestinian cause. He
upset many Jews by his physi-
cal and spiritual embrace of
Yasir Arafat, chairman of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion, in Lusaka, Zambia, at the
end of February, less than
three weeks after he was freed
from prison.
At that time and again later,
Mandela stated his solidarity
with the Palestinians and drew
an analogy between their suf-
fering and that of black South
Africans. He said that if "the
truth hurts the Jews, that's
too bad."

UCLA Students Fight
Chabad Dorm Takeover
LOS ANGELES (JTA) -
Residents of a Jewish student
housing cooperative picketed
the Los Angeles headquarters
of Chabad to protest what they
see as a takeover of their
residence to convert it into a
shelter for homeless men.
Some 40 residents and sup-
porters of the Westwood Bayit
marched in front of the nearby
Chabad building, chanting
"Save our Bayit/' and "Hell
no, we won't go!"
Chabad attorneys said that
the Hasidic movement
acquired legal title to the Bayit
last December, following a
period of financial difficulties,
health department violations
and physical deterioration at
the 20-bed residence on
UCLA's fraternity row.
The Westwood Bayit was
founded in the early 1970s by
university students seeking a
Jewish environment, kosher
food and coed living arrange-
ment near the UCLA campus.
It currently has 18 residents,
who claim that the house was
signed over to Chabad without
proper legal authority.
Lawyers on both sides have
been arguing over the cont-
ested agreement for over a
month, but matters came to a
head when Rabbi Boruch
Shlomo Cunin, West Coast
director of Chabad, arrived at
the Bayit with a van full of
helpers to remove furniture
and rugs from ground-level
rooms.
Resident students protested
and police were called to fore-
stall a shoving match, wit-
nesses said.
Rabbi Chaim Seidler-Feller,
the UCLA Hillel director, said
that losing the Bayit would
mean "the end of an era. It is
the residue of the Jewish coun-
terculture movement that
managed to survive and carry
on the spirit of the '60s. It is an
irreplaceable source of Jewish
independent life."

Agency Official Says
Housing Moving
Too Slow
By MARK JOFFE
NEWARK (JTA) The
Israeli government is moving
too slowly to construct housing
for the thousands of Soviet
immigrants arriving in the
country, an official of the Jew-
ish Agency for Israel conceded
here.
Gad Ben-Ari, who is the spo-
kesman for the non-
governmental social service
agency, said that although
tens of thousands of new
apartments will have to be
built to house the immigrants,
construction work has begun
on only 9,000 units so far this
year.
"That's not good enough for
us," he told members of the
American Jewish Press Asso-
ciation, which held its annual
convention here.
Ben-Ari, whose agency
works in partnership with the
government to assist the
absorption of new immigrants,
said his agency has "been
pushing the government" to
speed the construction of hous-
ing.

Viewpoint
Mandela Delegation Questioned
For a delegation of representatives of
several American Jewish organizations to
go to Geneva to meet with the Pope is in
arder. For such a delegation to have gone
there to meet Nelson Mandela of the
African National Congress is not.
And the statement that the group issued,
in effect calling on American Jewry not to
demonstrate against Mandela during his
visit to the United States and praising him
for saying Israel has a right to exist, was
even less correct.
Our Jewish community in the United
States is not, and should not be, monolithic.
The Conference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Congregations does and
should speak out on matters on which
organized Jewry has a consensus. A "pick-
up" delegation completely lacks that
authority.
This is not to say that Mandela should be
either boycotted or picketed. But he should
be judged on his actions in the light of his
open embrace of the PLO and its chairman,
Yasir Arafat.
Likewise, Mayor David Dinkins was off
target when he asked Jewish groups to
cancel scheduled protests of Mandela's
visit.

Israel and Ethiopia, in the
wake of the re- establishment
of full diplomatic relations
between the two states last

Jewish Claim To Jerusalem Surpasses Any Other
By DR. MANFRED R. LEHMAN
NEW YORK (JTA) All
Jews agree that a unified Jeru-
salem is the eternal Jewish
capital, and not barter in politi-
cal negotiations. It is neverthe-
less timely to scan the religi-
ous claims of Judaism, Islam
and Christianity to the Holy
City.
Jerusalem is mentioned
about 1,000 times in the Bible.
How many times is Jerusalem
mentioned in the Koran? Not
once.
Most Moslems answer that
when the Koran mentions "the
furthest mosaue," it is refer-
ring to Jerusalem's Al-Aksa on
the Temple Mount.
However, at the time of
Mohammed, Jerusalem was
part of the Byzantine empire.
What is today the Aksa Mos-
que was then a Byzantine
Christian Church. Anyone
familiar with the architecture
of Al-Aksa will immediately
recognize the characteristics
of Byzantine church structure.
Therefore, Mohammed could
not have thought of "the furth-
est mosque" in Jerusalem, but
rather in some other location.
But did Mohammed show
any affinity to Jerusalem
regardless of the fact that he
did not mention the city in the
Koran?
Mohammed, thinking Jews
might be candidates for con-
version to Islam, and knowing
that Jews turn to Jerusalem in
their daily prayers, temporar-
ily adopted this direction for
Islamic prayer to make conver-
sion more palatable for Jews.
When, after two years, he
noticed that Jews were not
converting in any significant
numbers, he suspended the
practice. He then issued a pro-
hibition against facing Jerusa-
lem, and proclaimed that from
then on, the direction was tow-
ard Mecca, as it is to this very
day.
In February 1978, as part of
an American Jewish delega-
tion, I found myself in Cairo
for meetings with President
Anwar Sadat and other
important Moslems.
One of them was the aged
Sheik al-Azhar, the head of the
le-.uing Islamic school, al-
Azhar University. The sheik
expressed his own solution to
the Arab-Israeli conflict: if the
Jews would give up Jerusalem
and the rest of "Palestine," he
would be in favor of giving
them back their banks and
shops in Cairo!
We were, of course, stunned.
I asked him how he could claim
that Jerusalem was holy to
Islam if Mohammed himself
had forbidden his followers in
the year 624 to face the city in
prayer. The sheik was visibly
taken aback. After some
moments and some quick whis-
pered exchanges with his
interpreter, the sheik said,
"Yes, but still, Jerusalem was
close to the prophet's heart."
Frankly, it did not sound very
convincing.
After Mohammed's death,
the rulers of Islam were called
caliphs. The second such caliph
was Omar, a mighty warrior
who captured Egypt, Syria
and Iraq.
In 638, he captured Jerusa-
lem from the Byzantine Chris-
tians. It is highly significant
that in the treaty signed by
both sides after the capture of
Jerusalem, there was a provi-
sion that all Jews had to be
expelled from Jerusalem.
Sadat ended his speech to
the Knesset in November 1977
with the words: "Let us invoke
the spirit of Omar." Did any-
one understand that these
words could have a sinister
meaning to the Jews of Jerusa-
lem?
One of the Islamic names for
Jerusalem is "AI Kuds."
According to an encyclopedia
of Islam, "Al Kuds: so-called
from al-Bayit al-Muqqadas, the
Holy House," or the Bet
Hamikdash, the Temple of
Solomon. So Jerusalem s Isla-
mic holiness partially derives
from its association with the
Jewish Temple and Jewish bib-
lical figures, such as Solomon,
who are also prophets in Islam.
It is a tragedy that the Jew-
ish roots of Islam have either
been forgotten or deliberately
suppressed.
We shall now turn to the
Christian claim to Jerusalem,
or at least the papal assertion
that the city not be Jewish but
internationalized.
The Christian affinity for
Jerusalem is derived from the
fact that the city was where
the events of the Gospels took
place. And there is no dispute
in the Gospels that Jerusalem
Yet, the Jews throughout history never left the soil
of the Holy Land. Only during one short period,
in the Uth century, when Christian Crusaders
ruled over Jerusalem, was the city made
"Judenrein." Immediately after the capture of
Jerusalem in 1099, the Christians killed
Jerusalem'8 entire Jewish population.
Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
"And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up. and
all the men that appertained unto Korah"
(Num. 16.32).
KORAH
KORAH Korah, son of Izhar, and Dathan and Abiram, sons of
Eliab, led a rebellion of 250 men who refused to accept the
leadership of Moses and Aaron. Moses tried in vain to persuade
them that all was being done according to God's will. Finally, God
Himself acted. "And it came to pass... that the ground did cleave
asunder that was under them. And the earth opened her mouth,
and swallowed them up, and their households, and all the men
that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods. So they... went
down alive into the pit; and the earth closed upon them, and they
perished from among the assembly... And fire came forth from
the Lord, and devoured the two hundred and fifty men" (Number*
16.31-35). To prove that Aaron had indeed been chosen by God for
his priestly function, Moses instructed every tribe to place its rod
near the Ark of the Covenant; miraculously, Aaron's rod
sprouted. Thus ended the controversy over the priesthood. The
portion proceeds to describe the various emoluments that the
priests and Levites received.
was at that time a Jewish city
containing the Jewish Temple.
The persons and events in
these accounts were all Jew-
ish, with the Romans being the
alien power. Nothing is
"Christian" about these asso-
ciations. Only centuries later,
in their ongoing efforts to dele-
gitimize and eradicate
Judaism, did they think of a
scheme to deprive the Jews of
their ancient homeland and
capital, by usurping these
names for themselves. The
Church called itself "the true
Israel" and Jerusalem was
relegated to a place in heaven,
not on earth.
The current pope is said
by people who know his think-
ing to share this view, which
is the main reason for this
refusal to recognize the reborn
State of Israel.
Yet, the Jews throughout
history never left the soil of
the Holy Land. Only during
one short period, in the 11th
century, when Christian Cru-
saders ruled over Jerusalem,
was the city made "Juden-
rein." Immediately after the
capture of Jerusalem in 1099,
the Christians killed Jerusa-
lem's entire Jewish popula-
tion.
However, the Jews soon set-
tled there again, as large
groups of Jewish immigrants,
many illustrious Jews among
them, arrived from France and
Spain.
Ail claims to Jerusalem are
based on the Jewish history
and character of the city. If
there had not been a Jewish
Jerusalem, there would have
been neither Christian nor
Islamic interest in the city.
Even today, these two reli-
gions only seem to perk up
about Jerusalem in a negative
way to take it away from the
Jews. It is interesting that the
Saudi Arabian royal family,
which claim to be the "protec-
tors" of the holy Moslem
shrines in Jerusalem, never
once visited Jerusalem during
the city's 19 years of Arab
rule, between 1948 and 1967.
Only Judaism has such
ancient and uninterrupted
longing for the Holy City.

JNF Plays Major Role In Absorbing Soviet Olim
By DR. SAMUEL I. COHEN
The thousands of new immi-
grants arriving monthly at
Ben-Gurion International Air-
port are a vivid expression of
the fulfillment of a cherished
dream for all Israelis. This
soul-stirring human drama
that has been unfolding each
day since the opening of the
gates of the Soviet Union is
the latest phase in the
triumphant march of the Zion-
ist vision. Projections of
150,000 or more new immi-
grants arriving in Israel each
year are no longer fantasy, but
are based firmly in current
realities.
Fulfillment of the Zionist
dream is evident in the over-
whelming response of Israelis,
who have opened their homes
and their hearts to help the
new immigrants feel that they
have a place in the Jewish
state. Planning for the absorp-
tion of immigrants on such a
monumental scale, however,
would have been impossible
were it not for the fact that the
land on which they are settling
is owned by the Jewish people,
who can determine how that
land can best be developed to
serve vital national needs and
goals.
The Jewish National Fund is
privileged to be one of the
cornerstones of the challenge
presented by today's massive
wave of immigration and the
need to ensure effective
absorption. It is devoting the
best of its energies, through its
Operation Promised Land
campaign, to the urgent devel-
opment of land in the Galilee,
Jerusalem and Negev regions
for the settlement of the new
immigrants.
Intensive land development
is required so that the most
fundamental needs of the
immigrants can be met rapidly
and efficiently. It is a hercu-
lean challenge, because of the
urgent need for a national
housing effort, for the paving
of access roads to connect
newly-established immigrant
communitites with major nigh-
ways, and for preparing the
infrastructure for agricultural
and tourism projects that pro-
vide sources of livelihood and
attract tens of thousands of
immigrants to development
areas.
JNF is also developing land
in order to make possible the
major housing projects being
carried out with the Ministry
of Housing and Construction.
Land development was
recently completed for a large
new residential district in the
southern port city of Eilat, and
plans are underway for similar
development in Tiberias and
Ashdod, as well as in rural
centers and community vil-
lages throughout the Negev
and Galilee.
JNF's land development
activities are devoted not only
to providing effective com-
munity growth, but also to
enabling isolated towns and
rural communities to create
employment opportunities
through development projects
that will attract large numbers
of new residents.
In the Negev town of Mitzpe
Ramon, JNF is widening
access roads, building roads to
various scenic attractions and
creating recreational areas,
including a sculpture garden
s"d a zoological park. With the
tiers and developing the
regions' economies.
Water is the source of life,
and an essential resource for
all economic activities. Israel
suffers from a chronic water
shortage, aggravated by two
consecutive years of drought.
Growing demands of a rapidly
expanding population further
compound this problem. JNF
has therefore undertaken
major projects to construct
and expand reservoirs, which
will add millions of cubic met-
ers of water to the country's
supply of this vital resource.
Today's massive wave of
immigration also demands

resulting expansion of employ-
ment opportunities, Mitzpe
Ramon has become a more
attractive place to live and
work.
Other development towns
are currently engaged in nego-
tiations with JNF on protects
for the enhancement of both
land resources and tourism.
For example, JNF is scheduled
to establish a tourist center in
the upper Galilee community
of Ma alot. This project should
significantly boost local
employment opportunities.
Elsewhere in the Galilee, as
well as in the Negev, JNF is
building new roads to ensure
efficient communication links
from outlying villages to major
population centers and to each
other. Such arteries are neces-
sary for attracting new set-

cational staff is gearing up for
a comprehensive program
designed to ease the culture
shock of immigrant youth by
bringing them into closer con-
tact with their Israeli counter-
parts and with the landscape
of Israel.
During the coming summer
season, a thousand young olim
will attend JNF summer

the opportunity to get to know
young people from all over
Israel and familiarize them-
selves with the country.
The tens of thousands of

clubs on the basis of race,
religion and gender continues
to operate as an invidious and
particularly hurtful form of
exclusion," Teitelbaum said.
He pointed out that these
"are not simple private social
clubs, but commercial centers
where important contacts are
cultivated and where signifi-
cant business is transacted.
Because of the role that these
clubs play in our society, dis-
crimination in their member-
ship remains a major obstacle
to the elimination of bigotry."
Teitelbaum said such dis-
criminatory institutions "deny
excluded groups access to eco-
nomic and social opportunities,
while also hindering their abil-
ity to prosper and flourish in
professional and business com-
munities."
"Exclusion from member-
ship," he said, "can place qual-
ified individuals at a profound
disadvantage and relegates
them to positions of inferior
professional status."
Noting that a number of
judicial nominees and Justice
Department candidates belong
to private clubs, Teitelbaum
asserted that their member-
ship in discriminatory organi-
zations "is incompatible" with
the high mission and responsi-
bilities of the Federal Judicial
system.
"Federal judges are entitled
to the same opportunity and
freedom to associate as other
citizens," he said. "But not at
the expense of their ability to
be, or appearance of being
impartial arbiters of the law."
Yeltzin Has Contacts
In Anti-Semitic Pamyat
By SUSAN BIBNBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA) A
visiting leader of Soviet Jewry
has linked Boris Yeltsin, newly
elected president of the Rus-
sian Soviet Republic, to the
virulently anti-Semitic Pamyat
and the "strong Palestinian
lobby" in Moscow.
Evgeny Satanovsky, who
belongs to the governing com-
mittee of the Wad, the
umbrella body of Jewish
organizations in the Soviet
Union, described Yeltsin as
the fulcrum of a dangerous
alliance between Soviet anti-
Semites and anti-Israel Pales-
tinians.
Yeltsin is "no friend to the
Jews," Satanovsky said here
in addresses before two syna-
gogue congregations in the
Riverdale section of the
Bronx.
$4 Billion
To Saudis
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Citing the absence of a clear
direct threat to Israel, Jewish
groups will not fight a $4
billion proposed U.S. weapons
sale to Saudi Arabia, the larg-
est to the kingdom since the
sale of AWACS reconnaiss-
ance planes in 1981.
"There is probably not going
to be a big fight over it,' said
Jess Hordes, Washington rep-
resentative of the Anti- Defa-
mation League of B'nai B'rith. .
He said that while the size of
the sale is "mind- boggling," it
As president of the largest
and most populous of the
Soviet republics, Yeltsin is
widely perceived to be Soviet
President Mikhail Gorbachev's
most dangerous political rival.
Satanovsky maintained that
Yeltsin "has some contacts
with Pamyat," and his rela-
tionship with the group will
become stronger if "he decides
that Pamyat is a strong force."
His opinion was seconded by
Soviet Jewry leaders here.
Myraa Shinbaum, director of
the Soviet Jewry Project of the
Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith and past associ-
ate director of the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry,
verified that Yeltsin had given
permission to demonstrate and
had met with Pamyat when he
was head of the Moscow Com-
munist Party.
Arms Sale
Unopposed
"does not contain the type of
specific technology or systems
that are going to prompt a
major congressional effort" to
block it.
Congress has until early July
to vote to block the sale; other-
wise it automatically becomes
official.
Pro-Israel lobbyists said
they are much more concerned
about a possible U.S. sale to
the Saudis in 1991 of F-15
fighter planes and later this
year of 40 Multiple Launch
Rocket Systems.
Not since the birth of Israel has
something so tiny made it so big.
