Sources at the Jerusalem
municipality expressed hope
Monday that calm will be
restored to the city after
nine days of anti-Arab
violence that followed the
fatal stabbing of a yeshiva
student in the Old City's
Moslem quarter Nov. 15.
Their optimism may have been
inspired by the funeral of Palesti-
nian leader Anwar Nusseibeh
which took place in the Old City
Monday without disturbances. He
was buried on the Temple Mount.
The funeral procession followed
almost the same route as the
memorial march by Jews for the
slain yeshiva student, Eliahu Am-
di, Nusseibeh, a leading Palesti-
nian moderate, died last Saturday
at the age of 73.
HEAVY POLICE cordons kept
Jewish extremists away, even
when Arab youths joined the
funeral procession chanting pro-
PLO slogans. Sunday's memorial
march for Amdi was fraught with
violence, and police said later it
was a mistake to have issued a

passers-by were beaten and re-

In Austria
Liberals, Rightists Join
In Coalition That Tops
Parliamentary Elections
Freedom Party, a coalition of
rightwingers and liberals, emerg-
ed the clear winner in Sunday's
Parliamentary elections, under
the leadership of a charismatic
young nationalist, Joerg Haider.
Haider, who took over the reins
of the party from Norbert Steger
only three months ago, raised con-
cern in Jewish and liberal circles
for the unabashed chauvinism of
his campaign. While he carefully
avoided overt neo-Nazi or anti-
Semitic statements, he drew the
loudest cheers when he said he op-
posed the "downgrading" of the
wartime generation.
Observers believe it was not by
chance that he chose Braunau, the
birthplace of Adolf Hitler, for one
of his final campaign rallies before
election day.
HAIDER WAS in fact endorsed
by the radical rightwing National
Democratic Party (NPD) which is
considered by many to be anti-
Semitic. It urged its constituents
to vote for the Freedom Party.
Haider did not unequivocally re-
ject the overture.
El Salvador Fund
To Aid Victims
American Jewish World Service

Noting that 31,000 families
were left homeless by the quake,
according to recent United Na-
tions figures, the AJWS said

through non-governmental
organizations and used for

Hebrew U. Opens
Eight Days Late
The Hebrew University began
its 1986-87 academic year on
Nov. 10, eight days late
because of financial difficulties
and a related dispute with the
Housing Ministry. Facing a
court order, the university
opened its dormitories. It had
earlier kept them closed
because the Housing Ministry
refused to allow the university
to raise dormitory fees. About
5,000 of the 17,000 enrolled
students live in the dorms. The
university sought to raise the
fees because of a financial
shortfall due to reduced
government funding over the
past several years. The freeze
of fees at the current level will
increase the deficit by $1
With 99 percent of the vote
counted, the Freedom Party stood
to gain at least seven seats, giving
it a bloc of 19 in the 183-member
Nationalrat (Parliament). Its win-
nings were at the expense of the
Socialist Party, headed by
Chancellor Franz Vranitzky,
which is expected to have 80 seats
in the new legislature, down from
90; and the conservative People's
Party of President Kurt

upon an article in the Israeli daily
Yediot Achronot which criticized
Mock for statements he had made
during Waldheim's bid for the
This was cited to the electorate
as Israeli meddling in Austria's af-
fairs. Party aides pressured public
television stations to air the com-
plaint while criticism of the Peo-
ple's Party in the West German
media was ignored.
The tone of the People's Party
campaign only increased its ten-
sion with the Austrian Jewish
community. Spokesmen for the
latter noted there has always been
anti-Semitism in Austria, the
novelty being that it is now used
for political purposes.
But the People's Party failed to
gain the victory it had hoped for
largely because Mock is a colorless
figure. He was no match for

thia, Austria's southernmost pro-
vince, and presented himself as
champion of the common man.

ed Socialists as well as Conser-
vatives and to the unemployed in
depressed industrial towns.

election will be a coalition bet-
ween the Socialists and the Peo-

Waldheim is expected to ask the
Chancellor to form a new govern-
ment. On Sunday, Socialist Party
chairman and former Chancellor

worsening situation for Jews in
Iran. Shamir said Israel was con-

to help. At the same time, he said,

Shamir may have been referring
to, among others, a New York
Times report from Vienna recent-
ly that "persecution of Jews in
Iran has reached such intensity
that hundreds of them have joined
a much larger exodus of Moslem
Iranians fleeing the country." The
Times attributed its information
to refugees from Iran arriving in
Vienna and officials of organiza-
tions there assisting them.
According to Shamir, the situa-
tion of Jews in Iran is no worse
than that of other religious
minorities, and it has not
deteriorated. Asked who he would
like to see win the Iran-Iraq war,
he said he had no sympathy for
either side.
SHAMIR ALSO stood firm on
his insistence that Israel violated
no British laws in the case of
Mordechai Vanunu, the former
nuclear technician now in custody
in Israel who was allegedly kid-
napped in London by Israeli
agents last month. "Vanunu left
(Britain) on his own accord,"
Shamir said.
"We are not obliged to give any
promises to any country. I cannot
say we have promised something
to Britain, but we have only stated
the fact that we have not violated
any British law. And this person
(Vanunu) left Britain of his own
free will. That's all."
But reports from London said
the British government is not
satisfied with Israel's explanation
of Vanunu's disappearance from
London Oct. 1.
David Waddington, Minister of
State in the Home Office, said in
the House of Commons that while
there is no evidence Vanunu was
kidnapped, "I certainly regard it
as unsatisfactory that the Israeli
authorities have declined to give
any explanation, or even the date
of his arrival in Israel."
VANUNU IS awaiting formal
charges here for either espionage
or treason for giving a British
newspaper information about

London Paper
Says Libya Has Given Syria Deadly Nerve Gas Weapons
LONDON (JTA) The Sunday Telegraph reported
Sunday that Libya has given Syria deadly nerve gas
weapons, traceable to the Soviet Union, which could be us-
ed with devastating effect on Israel's main cities.
The report, by the newspaper's defense correspondent,
cited Western intelligence sources for the information. Ac-
cording to the writer, the Syrians can use the nerve gas
warheads on their Soviet-made SCUD missiles.
THE CHEMICAL WARHEADS could kill everyone
within a 25-mile radius and render a city uninhabitable for
about 24 hours after the attack, the Telegraph report said.
The SCUD is a vehicle-launched surface-to-surface missile
with a range of more than 160 miles.
High Court Declines
Lets Ruling Stand on Lighted Cross On Fire Department Roof
Until now, SCUDs in the arsenals of Libya, Syria and
Iran were thought to be armed with conventional warheads
in contrast to the Soviet weapons which are nuclear-armed.
According to the Telegraph, possession of a long-rangt
chemical warfare capability will give Syria "a huge advan-
tage" over Israel in any future conflict.
FIRED FROM the Golan Heights, a SCUD armed with
a chemical warhead could devastate the population of any
Israeli city... There will be immense pressure on Israel for
a preemptive strike," the Telegraph said.
Israel is said to be "fully aware" of the Syrian weapon
and has carried out military exercises in nuclear-chemical-
biological protective clothing.
The Supreme Court has
declined to review a federal
appellate court decision bar-
ring the city of St. Charles,
111., from displaying a large,
lighted Christian cross on
the roof of its fire depart-
ment as part of an annual
Christmas display.
The Supreme Court last week
also ruled that the Ansonia,
Conn., school system need not ac-
cept a teacher's proposed alter-
native to unpaid leave for
religious purposes as long as it
makes a reasonable proposal of its
own to accommodate his religious
needs. The suit, brought by Ronal
Philbrook, a member of the
Worldwise Church of God, was
sent back to lower federal courts
for further proceedings.
IN THE St. Charles case, the
court let stand the decision by
Federal Appellate Judge Richard
Posner that a prominent display
by the city of such an "un-
mistakeable symbol of Christiani-
ty" violated the First Amendment
ban against the establishment of
religion because it "dramatically
conveys a message of governmen-
tal support for Christianity."
Posner drew a distinction bet-
ween the cross and the less con-
spicuous nativity scene in

group of about 20 Jews sought to
provide a specific Jewish presence
in the demonstration at the
United States Department of
Energy last week urging an end to
nuclear testing.
David Shneyer, of the
Fabrangen Fiddlers, a local
Jewish band, sounded the shofar
as a signal for some of the
demonstrators to block the doors
of the government building. Ar-
thur Waskow, of the Shalom
Center, a Jewish peace group
founded three years ago, was one
of 137 demonstrators arrested in
the peaceful protest. All charges
were later dropped.
The U.S. government's rejec-
tion of the Soviet Union's offer of
a stop to nuclear testing was call-
ed by Waskow "a perverse rejec-
tion of all that the Jewish people

Waiting for the Third Shoe To Drop
In a "who's on first, what's on second?"
press conference Tuesday reminiscent of
that old, fabled Abbott and Costello routine,
Admiral John Poindexter, National Security
Adviser to President Reagan, declared that
he has asked "permission to be returned to
his naval duties.
This certainly means the end of his role in
the secret arming of Iran. Does it also spell
finis to his masterminding of President
Reagan's covert war in Nicaragua?
One can, we suppose, urge readers to stay
tuned for the second (and even third?) shoe
to fall in the guise of Secretary of State
Shultz or even Chief of Staff Donald Regan
(or both) to put a merciful end to the Presi-
dent's latest passion.
Peres Mum for Record
Our hunch is that Mr. Reagan's agony will
not be permitted to be stilled until Congress
hears his confession of complicity first, and
this is interesting because of the high
visibility Israel had in Tuesday's conference.
But no higher, of course, than in Israel
There, Prime Minister Shamir last week
and Deputy Prime Minister Shimon Peres
on Sunday and Monday of this week clung
steadfastly to a "no comment" about
Israel's role in the shipment of arms to Iran.
On Monday, Mr. Peres relented but merely
to submit that he would have something to
say about the role later, but only behind clos-
ed doors and only before a Knesset In-
telligence Committee.
This may well have been before Mr.
Reagan's California group of advisers and
friends put the screws on him to make his
chatasee ("I have sinned") to the appropriate
congressional committees currently seeking
his scalp and to the nation at large. Certain-
ly, the Israelis weren't going to attempt to
clear themselves with their government's
watchdogs at the expense of turning tail
(and tale) on the President of the United
But with Admiral Poindexter's "sudden"
desire to return to his naval duties, which
may suggest the decline and fall of Mr.
Shultz and/or Mr. Regan as well, that grim
Israeli determination for secrecy is also like-
ly to turn into a more confessional mood.
Lots of Explaining
In the case of Israel, it seems to us, the
issue runs deeper than in the U.S. President
Reagan's rationale for involvement may ap-
pear to be more complicated geopolitical
considerations, for example, overlaid by his
genuine concern for the late of the hostages
in Lebanon. But in fact it is not, since Mr.
Reagan's rationale is made complex, not so
much by detail or even goals to be achieved,
but by internal policy contradictions within
his administration itself.
In Israel, the motive seems to be the wide-
spread power structure's longheld belief
that an Iran victory in the war against Iraq
would be less damaging to Israel than an
Iraq victory, at the same time that
numerous Israeli authorities agree that
whoever wins the war, the end can only en-
courage newer Arab adventures against
Israel itself.
If this is more reasonable than Mr.
Reagan's alleged justification, we are not

quite sure how. Since both governments
wind up with pie-in-the-sky explanations for
the actions that place their rationale on a
similarly untenable basis, one thing is cer-
tain: both will be having a lot of explaining
to do in the near future.
Diversity in Unity
At the 55th General Assembly of the
Council of Jewish Federation in Chicago, a
dominant theme was the affirmation of
diversity in unity and the unity of diverse
views and elements in the process of effec-
tive community building.
This theme is a major one these days, with
meaning not alone for Jews in the United
States, but in Israel as well.
There, increasingly the social and political
fabric of the nation is being torn apart by
growing numbers of confrontations between
ultra-Orthodox elements and Jews from
elsewhere of more moderate religious per-
suasions. Furthermore, these ultra-
Orthodox elements are taking their
violence-prone solutions to other problems
they see as insoluble as well: principally, as
has been evident during the past two weeks,
to relations between Arabs and Jews in
In this sense, Israel's ultra-Orthodox seem
to be prepared to destroy their country
before they will see what Deputy Prime
Minister Shimon Peres last week called
more "civilized" solutions to Israel's
Herzog in Tour
No wonder, then, that diversity and unity
were a dominant theme at the 55th General
Assembly. At the GA, Mr. Peres focused on
the denominational dissention in American
Jewish life, as well as in Israel, by declaring
that he saw it as threatening to tear apart a
people "which is too small to become two or
three people instead of one."
Peres called on the Assembly to "mobilize
good-will" and "to find the necessary
wisdom and patience and talent to have our
arguments in a way that won't split us to
We agree. May he have the courage and
the power to bring the same message to his
own country's ultra-Orthodox, who these
days appear to have lost their reason.
Poor Planning Brought Embarrassments
Friday, November 28,1986
Volume 16
Number 32
President Chaim Herzog's official
tour to Australia, New Zealand
and Southeast Asia, now nearing
its end, has been fraught with em-
barrassments which some
Knesset members are attributing
to poor planning and inadequate
briefings of the President by his
aides and government officials.
But observers here stress it is
premature to say whether or not

that the noisy anti-Israel

was orchestrated by Singapores
powerful Moslem neighbors,
Malaysia and Indonesia.
Herzog was warmly greeted by
Singapore's veteran Prime
Minister, Lee Kuan Yew, who fac-
ed down heavy Moslem and Arab
pressure to cancel the visit. Israel
has a long-standing relationship
with Singapore which includes
civilian and military aid and trade
ties. Lee made a point of extolling
that relationship, though he also
urged Herzog that Israel must
vacate the Arab territories it oc-
cupied in 1967.
Nevertheless, Israelis were
disturbed by reports that Herzog
was politely asked to shorten his
visit to Singapore the last stop
in his tour so as to leave before
Pope John Paul II arrives on his
official visit.
HERZOG'S VISIT to Australia
unfortunately coincided with in-
tense interest there in the affair of
Mordechai Vanunu, the former
technician at the Dimona nuclear
facility who disappeared in Lon-
don Oct. 1 and has turned up in
jail in Israel. He faces charges of
either espionage or treason for
giving a British newspaper infor-
mation about Israel's alleged
nuclear weapons capabilities.
Vanunu lived in Australia for a
time and it was there that he con-
verted to the Christian faith. Rev.
John McKnight, the Anglican
vicar who converted him, went to
Israel last month in an unsuc-
cessful attempt to discover
Vanunu's whereabouts. He charg-
ed that Vanunu was kidnapped
from British soil by Israeli agents
and brought to Israel against his
Israel vociferously denied this
though it hasn't said how or when
Vanunu came to Israel. Herzog's
embarrassment was compounded
because the Jerusalem govern-
ment failed to inform him when it
decided, after weeks of silence, to
acknowledge publicly that
Vanunu was in Israel.
AS A RESULT, Herzog was in-
nocently denying knowledge of his
whereabouts after the Cabinet in
Jerusalem confirmed he was being
held under lawful detention."

the President found the focus of
media attention not on his visit or
on bilateral relations with Israel
but on the issue of nucS

revelations. There is a fierce na-
fconal debate going on in New
Zealand about nuclear defense.

Israeli chief of state, such as his
tour of toe South Pacific island na-
tions. The King of Tonga and
other local leaders displayed ge-
nuine warmth toward Herzog and
Israel and expressed interest in
improving relations with the
Jewish State.
In large measure, their attitude
stems from the favorable impres-
sions made by the small number of
Israeli experts, mainly
agronomists, who have served in
the region. The local population is
interested in more aid and know-
how from the Israelis.
One expected high point of the
tour, a visit to the Philippines,
was cancelled at the last minute
because of the troubled political
climate in that nation. Herzog,
after a telephone conversation
with Premier Yitzhak Shamir,
decided to avoid Manila.
When informed by the Israeli
Ambassador of the cancellation,
Philippines President Corazon
Aquino reportedly "shed a tear,"
as if Herzog's decision somehow

community to fill the time before
his scheduled arrival in Singapore,
Israel recently re-opened its Con-
sulate in the British Crown colony

in important commercial relations

J Judge's Ruling
Friday, November 28, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 5
On 'Christian Nation' Worries Jews
prominent jurist, Alan Der-
showitz, said that the latest
instance of what he called
"the Christianization of
America" should be
"There ought to be something
done," he said, about the view ex-
pressed by a judge in Chicago that
"America's origins are Christian"
and that the "founding fathers in-
tended and achieved full religious
freedom for all within the context
of a Christian nation in the First
Amendment as it was adopted,
rather than as we have rewritten
Law School professor and a
spokesperson for civil liberties
and human rights, was referring
to the ruling on Nov. 6 by U.S.
District Court Judge Frank
McGarr that a creche should stand
on the grounds of Chicago's City
Addressing the annual Ben-
jamin Epstein Memorial Lecture
of the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith Sunday, Dershowitz
urged resistance to those "who
are trying, by a two-step process,
to turn this country, in which all
citizens are supposed to be equal,
into a Christian nation where
Jews are tolerated."
He said that "being tolerated
was something very good for us in
most countries of the world. We
spent so much of our history in
Poland because Poland was one of
the first countries to tolerate us as
merely second-class citizens."
Jews, he said, were also so
tolerated "in the golden age of
Jewish exile in the Arab
Dershowitz cautioned those who
would say "What's so wrong with
tolerance?" and those who claim
that "second-class citizenship is
much better than something
HE SCORED the oft-used term
"Judaeo-Christian tradition" as
"one of the most seductive myths
ever fostered on the American
people. This is not a Judaeo-
Christian country. This is multi-
ethnic, multi-racial, multi-
religious country. Judaism has no
claim to being the second religion

second and because it has no right

of our Jewish institutions, but we

And we don't want the tunes call-
ed" either by Christian fundamen-
talists or by Jewish Orthodoxy.
He warned against prayer in the
public schools "because there is no
prayer without price. There is no
prayer without inevitably asking
the question, "Who is it we are
praying to'?"
HE SAID that either the
Chicago judge or those who say
that America is a religious coun-
try will have to answer, because
"There's no such thing as a
religious country which doesn't
eventually pick its favorite
religion," like a favorite state
flower, song or bird. "Inevitably,
there will be a state religion if we
allow this two-step process to go
Rabbi Calls Ruling 'Outrageous'
Rabbi David Saperstein,
co-director of Reform
Judaism's Religious Action
Center here, has called
"shocking" the justification
by a federal judge of a
creche on Chicago's City
Hall grounds on the basis
that the United States is a
Christian country.
"The language of the decision"
on Nov. 5 by U.S. District Court
Judge Frank McGarr in Chicago
"is even more outrageous than
the decision itself," Saperstein
said. McGair rejected a challenge
by five national Jewish organiza-
tions and a group of individuals to
the presence of a creche, and a
menorah sponsored by the
Lubavitch movement on public
grounds. McGarr's decision is ex-
pected to be appealed before a
higher court.
said: "The truth is that America's
origins are Christian with the
result that some of our fondest
traditions are Christian, and that
our founding fathers intended and
achieved full religious freedom for
all within the context of a Chris-
tian nation in the First Amend-
ment as it was adopted, rather
than as we have rewritten it."
Saperstein charged that the
McGarr decision violates 200
years of Constitutional doctrine.
He said McGarr used his "ra-
tionale not only to justify the
creche, "but to call as well for the
state to participate freely in
religiosu celebration of
But, he noted, "in order to pro-
tect himself under the current
constitutional standard set out by
the Supreme Court in the Lynch
v. Donnelly (Pawtucket Creche)
case, the judge also determined
that the creche has become a sym-
bol of secular national holiday
devoid of its religious context."
SAPERSTEIN stressed that
"the uniqueness of the American
vision was that freedom of
religion would be protected by
separating church and state and
that all religions would be treated
equally. It was in this context that
religious life in America has
flourished with unprecedented
freedom throughout our history."
The Jewish organizations that
participated in the suit were the
American Jewish Congress,
Union of American Hebrew Con-
gregations, Central Conference of
American Rabbis, United
Synagogue of America, and the
Rabbinical Assembly.
U.S. Lawyer:
Soviets Can Be Stopped in Court
PARIS (JTA) Samuel
Pisar, an international
lawyer from the U.S. who
recently pleaded successful-
ly in Soviet courts on behalf
of five Jews arrested during
a Simchat Torah celebration
in Moscow, believes that ar-
bitrary acts by the Soviet
authorities can now be
challenged effectively in
Soviet courts.
Foreign lawyers, refuseniks
and other Jews can make use of
the provisions of Soviet law, Pisar
said. "What is needed is a certain
amount of discretion, a low profile
and a thorough knowledge of
Soviet legal and criminal pro-
cedure," he said.
"CASES SHOULD be fought
n an individual basis. I don't
chink that all can be won, but
given the right men and a certain
amount of determination some
could be successful. By using this
method, the refuseniks could start
a new chapter in their relations
with the Soviet Administration,"
Pisar told the JTA.
The 58-year-old Polish-born
Holocaust survivor and Harvard-
educated jurist believes the less
authoritarian policies instituted
by Soviet leader Mikhail Gor-
bachev makes it possible for
others to achieve the same
breakthrough he did.
On Simchat Torah, Oct. 25, the
Moscow synagogue was packed
and thousands of Jews thronged
the adjacent streets. The crowd
was larger than usual because
Elie Wiesel, the 1986 Nobel Peace
Prize winner, had come to
celebrate the day with Soviet
while the crowds were still singing
traditional Hebrew songs and
dancing in the streets, two police
cars drove up and the police
ordered the celebrants to
disperse. Most did. But several
resisted. Five were arrested and
booked on charges of
"hooliganism" and disturbing the
peace, both relatively serious
charges in the USSR.
The next day, a small delegation
of Jews who had been at the Sim-
chat Torah celebration, called on
Pisar at his hotel and asked him to
represent the five arrested men
who were their relatives or
friends. On Monday, Oct. 27,
Pisar appeared before the district
judge in charge of the case.
He enjoyed certain advantages
in that he speaks Russian fluently,
is an expert on Soviet law and has
close links to Armand Hammer,
the American industrialist known
for his traditional ties with the
Soviet leadership. Only a few
months earlier, Pisar had attend-
ed a Soviet-American business
conference where he met
judge's chambers was a feat in
itself for a foreigner. Pisar said
that by using a combination of
legal arguments and moral per-
suasion, he managed to convince
the judge that the crime for which
the five Jews were arrested was a
mere peccadillo which normally
would be dismissed.

Prominent American Zionist
Leader Passes
Nathalie Resnikoff of New York
City, honorary national president
of AMIT Women, the major na-

Israel Bonds
$54.5 Million in Israel Bond
Holiday Subscriptions
Sets New Record
A new record of $54.5 million in
Israel Bond subscriptions during
the annual High Holy Day Bond
Appeals, which represents an in-
crease of more than $6 million
over last year's holiday results,
was announced this week by Brig.
Gen. (Res.) Yehudah Halevy,
President of Israel Bonds, and
Rabbi Stanley M. Davids of New
York, National Chairman of its
Rabbinic Cabinet.
This year's Bond appeals were
conducted in more than 1,100
synagogues in the United States
and Canada.
The new record in Bond
subscriptions during Rosh
Hashanah and Yom Kippur was
attributed by the two Israel Bond
leaders to the "extraordinary sup-
port" of the Rabbis of these con-
gregations, and particularly those
Rabbis who hosted more than 300
pre-holiday meetings for leading
members of their congregations.
At these small group meetings,
the new Israel Individual Variable
Rate (IVRI) Bonds ($10,000
minimum) were featured.
In their announcement, General
Halevy and Rabbi Davids added:
"This year's outstanding holiday
Bond results continued the rising
curve in Israel Bond subscriptions
during the High Holy Days which
we have experienced in the last
four years. This outstanding
response demonstrated once
again the confidence of the mass
of the North American Jewish
community in Israel's economy
and its prospects for continued
They pointed out that "Israel
Bond proceeds will help Israel to
expand investment in new in-
dustry and create more jobs in
development towns, as the
Government and the people of
Israel continue their joint efforts
to stabilize the economy and to
move forward to an era of
economic growth."

Italian Congress
Focuses on Religion in Schools
Quadrennial Congress of
the Union of Italian Jewish
Communities (UIJC) is
focusing on what is perhaps
the most disturbing issue
for Italian Jewry since the
last Congress four years ago
the teaching of the
Catholic religion in the
Italian school system.
Classes on Catholicism at all
grade levels were introduced as a
result of the 1985 accord between
the Education Ministry and the
Catholic Episcopal Conference.
While they are voluntary, there is
no feasible alternative for the
very small minority of Jewish and
other children who do not want to
THE PBOBLEM is high on the
agenda of the three-day con-
ference attended by delegates
from the Jewish communities of
Rome, Milan, Turin, Florence,
Naples, Venice and many smaller
cities all over Italy. Youngsters
from the Italian Jewish Youth
Federation handed out pamphlets
at the entrance to the Palazzo
Barberini, where the conference is
taking place, calling for repeal of
the 1985 accords.
The UIJC has compiled
numerous case histories testifying
to the ill-effects of the new law on
non-Catholic children, particularly
in nursery and kindergarten. It is
especially alienating for Jewish
children who cannot, at their age,
understand why they must be
separated from their friends while
Catholic ideology is taught, the

Vittorio Ottolenghi, one of the
four Jewish representatives on
the eight-member "Mixed Com-
mission" (government and UIJC)
which is charged with revising
and updating the 1930 treaty bet-
ween the UIJC and the Italian
state, told the Jewish Telegraphic

sent law may be suspended im-
mediately and revised within 2-3
years, at least as it applies to

The opening ceremonies were
honored by the presence of Presi-
dent Francesco Cossiga, the first
Italian chief of state ever to at-
tend such an event. It was ad-
dressed by Foreign Minister
Giulio Andreotti who spoke for
the human rights of Soviet Jews,
and by the 1986 Nobel Laureate in
Medicine, Dr. Rita Levi-
Montalcini, who traced the in-
tellectual and moral contributions
of Italian Jewry through the cen-
turies, symbolized by the history
of her own family.
AT THE LAST Congress, in
1982, the UIJC was in a
budgetary crisis which threatened
such communal services as the
Jewish schools in Rome where
nearly half of the country's 40,000
Jews live. The community was
then also divided over Israel's in-
vasion of Lebanon.
But a better atmosphere
prevailed at Mobday's opening.
The financial situation has im-
proved and Israel is once again
the focus of Italian Jewish unity.
A matter up for discussion is a
revision of the statutes of the self-
governing UIJC which, since the
last Congress, has been
transformed from a public institu-
tion with obligatory registration
and Jewish community taxation
for all Jews, into a private, volun-
tary association.
Two former chiefs of
Israel's military intelligence
see advantages for Israel in
the supply of arms to Iran
but differ over whether
Israel would benefit if Iran
won its six-year-old war
with Iraq.
Res. Gen. Aharon Yariv, direc-
tor of the Yaffee Institute for
Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv
University, believes Israel's in-
terests would be served if the war
continues, or at least ends in a
stalemate because there can be no
Eastern front against Israel as
long as the war continues.
But Res. Maj. Gen. Yehoshua
Saguy, a member of Yaffee In-
stitute staff, said President
Reagan was right to supply arms
to Iran, even though he failed in
trying to explain it to the
American people. Yariv and
Saguy participated in a seminar
on the Gulf war last week.
ACCORDING TO Saguy, Israel
has an interest in an Iranian vic-
tory in the Persian Gulf war
because there is at least a chance
it would then remain in the
Western orbit. Yariv, however,
said a victory for the regime of the
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini
would be "a disaster" for Israel.
Yariv said a good case could be
made for Israel to supply enough
arms to Iran to prevent an Iraqi
victory, but not enough to ensure
a victory for Iran. He admitted he
did not know what had happened
with respect to arms for Iran.
Reagan got into deep trouble
with his supporters and adver-
saries alike last week when he
conceded that the White House
had been secretly sending arms to
Iran in hope of gaining ground
with "moderate" elements who
might succeed Khomeini.
HE ALSO admitted, after deny-
ing it in a nationally televised
press conference last Wednesday
night, that a "third country" had
been involved in the clandestine
operation. Reagan did not name
the country but White House
aides had said earlier in the week
that it was Israel.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir refus-
ed to confirm or deny this. He said
last Thursday that it "has never
been, and is still not, Israel's
policy to disclose anything about
arms sales to other countries." He
also said he had no sympathy for
either side in the Gulf war.
Reagan insisted the supply of
arms to Iran was not a quid pro
quo for the release of American
hostages held by pro-Iranian
groups in Lebanon, but admitted
that White House emissaries has
mentioned the hostages to their
Iranian contacts.
YARIV NOTED, "Whether the
President did or did not say
something, the point is hostages
were freed. And from our point of
view, if the U.S. approaches us for
help and if and I don't say it
happened this way someone, an
Israeli or a Jew, has an idea how
to get them freed, all this I can
understand. I can also see the
other element ... casting your
bread upon the waters."
He explained that even if Iran
does not win the Gulf war, and
whether or not it continues to
have differences with its
neighbors, "we have an interest,
in the long term, in relations with
Yariv said he understood "that
we sell arms to Iran when she is in
a difficult situation, and since we
have no interest in an Iraqi vic-
tory. What I do not understand
and I hope this did not happen
would be the sale of arms to Iran
in quantity and kind which could
result in victory for the Khomeini
regime, because this could be a
disaster for us. We are not talking
about monetary gain but about
helping a great friend and prepar-
ing the ground for relations (with
Iran) without, giving Khomeini
HE SAID Israel had lessons to
learn from the Gulf war, par-
ticularly Iraq's use of chemical
weapons, which have not been us-
ed since World War I, except by
the late Egyptian President,
Gamal Abdel Nasser in his
military adventure in Yemen in
the 1%0's.
The peril, Yariv pointed out, is
that other Arab countries also
have chemical weapons and this
must serve as a warning to Israel.

Reception For Cast of the Golden Land
NEW YORK The Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith has called for a
federal investigation to
determine whether the new-
Nazi National Alliance has
used a tax-exempt church as
a vehicle for acquiring land
to build a racist compound.
The League urged the Internal
Revenue Service to revoke the
tax-exempt status of the
Cosmotheist Community Church
if an investigation confirms it was
used for that purpose. The Church
is the purchaser of record for the
land in question, 346 acres in
Pocahontas County, West
IN A LETTER to IRS Commis-
sioner Lawrence Gibbs, ADL said
it has a tape recording of a speech
by William L. Pierce, longtime
leader of National Alliance, in
which he indicated that the ac-
quisition of the property in 1984
at a cost of $95,000 was an activi-
ty of the National Alliance.
The letter, signed by Justin J.
Finger, director of ADL's Civil
Rights Division, noted that
Pierce, a longtime activist in ex-
tremist organizations, has been
publicly identified as a trustee of
the Church and that the'Church's
secretary is Don Trainor, a
recruiter for National Alliance.
Pierce, 51, was one of the prin-
cipal leaders of the American Nazi
Party later renamed the Na-
tional Socialist White People's
Party. He has headed National
Alliance, based in Arlington, Va.,
for more than a decade, during
which time it has been active in
disseminating anti-Semitic pro-
paganda and extremist materials
through the informal neo-Nazi
network in the United States. The
IRS denied National Alliance's
tax-exempt status in 1978 and
again in 1983.
PIERCE, editor of National
Alliance's bi-monthly magazine,
"National Vanguard," wrote
under the pseudonym Andrew
MacDonald, "The Turner
Diaries," a fantasy novel that
depicts the "overthrow" of the
American government by white
supremacists who loll Jews and
non-whites, destroy Israel and
establish an "Aryan" nation and
"The Turner Diaries," accor-
ding to an ADL background
report on Pierce, served as a
blueprint for The Order, a violent
underground terrorist group
founded by former members of
National Alliance and the anti-
Semitic, racist Aryan Nations
group. The Order was responsible
for a string of criminal and ter-
rorist activities in 1983-1985.
In his letter to Commissioner
Gibbs, Finger said, "If in fact the
Cosmotheist Church permitted
Six Jewish Writers
itself to be used as a conduit for
the National Alliance, then we
submit that the Church is no
longer entitled to enjoy the advan-
tages of 501(cX3) tax-exempt
status and its exemption should be
DM ITS 1983 decision upholding
the 1978 denial of tax exemption
for the National Alliance, the U.S.
Court of Appeals for the District
of Columbia Circuit ruled that the
National Alliance "repetitively
appeals for action, including
violence, to put to disadvantage or
to injure persons who are
members of named racial,
religious or ethnic groups."
The court added that the Na-
tional Alliance material "cannot
reasonably be considered intellec-
tual exposition," and "is far out-
side the range Congress could
have intended to subsidize in the
public interest by granting tax
ADL has also requested West
Virginia's Attorney General
Charlie Brown to launch an in-
vestigation to determine if the
Cosmotheist Church has violated
state law.

Knesset Member Cohen
Beaten by Zealots
Knesset member Ran Cohen
of the Civil Rights Move-
ment (CRM) was severely
beaten and stoned by
religious zealots last Thurs-
day (Nov. 20), on his way to
pay a condolence call on the
family of Eliahu Amdi, the
yeshiva student fatally stab-
bed by Arabs in the Moslem
quarter of the Old City.
The attack on Cohen and conti-
nuing anti-Arab violence by Jews
were denounced by Mayor Teddy
Kollek, Knesset speaker Shlomo
Hillel and others.
COHEN, a colonel in the
reserves, was treated at Hadas&ah
Hospital for head injuries caused
by a rock. "I fought through all of
Israel's wars and was never in-
jured. Now I was hit by a Jew,"
Cohen said.
He stressed that his attackers
came from outside the Shmuel
Hanavi neighborhood in West
Jerusalem where Amdi's family is
observing shiva, the seven-day
mourning period.
This was confirmed by local
residents. Rage in the
neighborhood was directed mainly
at the press and toward leftists,
such as Cohen. It was or-
chestrated by religious extremists
who were identified as
A memorial service for Amdi
was held last Thursday under the
watchful eyes of some 400
policemen sent to keep order. But
the police have been unable to
curb violence against Arabs in
Shmuel Hanavi or in the Moslem
quarter where Amdi was a stu-
dent at the Shuvu Banim yeshiva,
run by the Breslav Hasidim.
yeshiva have left their homes for
fear of reprisals by students. They
have been subjected to harass-
ment nightly since the murder of
Amdi. Several homes were burn-
ed, and Arabs have been stoned in
the streets. Arabs have also
engaged in stoning. A pregnant
woman resident of the Old City's
Jewish quarter was grazed by a
rock last Thursday afternoon.
The leader of the Shmuel
Hanavi neighborhood committee
said that the violence was likely to
continue until the end of the shiva
period. Kollek said that after the
mourning period, "one should
deal with the phenomenon of the
yeshiva which consistently pro-
vokes the Arab population."
Kollek spoke to reporters dur-
ing a visit to the scene of the
murder on Khaldiye Street. He
said the hotheads who have been
harassing Arabs all week are serv-
ing the ends of the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
Knesset Speaker Hillel said on a
radio interview that the police
must do their utmost to prevent
further hooliganism because that
is exactly what the terrorist
organizations want to provoke.
MEANWHILE. Baruch Mazel,
secretary of the Knesset faction of
the extremist Kach Party, was
released on bail last Thursday. He
had been jailed for 24 hours on
suspicion of organizing riots in the
Shmuel Hanavi neighborhood.
Leading Palestinian Moderate
Dead After Long Illness
Zaki Nusseibeh, a leading Palesti-
nian moderate who maintained
close ties with both Jordan and
top Israeli figures, died in
Jerusalem Saturday after a long
illness. He was 73 years old. A
former Jordanian Defense
Minister, Nusseibeh came from a
prominent Jerusalem family. He
was born and educated in
Jerusalem and studied law at
Cambridge University.
Nusseibeh had served in many
posts in Arab organizations,
beginning in the Arab Office in
London in 1945, and two years
later as secretary of the Arab Na-
tional Committee, set up in 1947
to succeed the Mandatory govern-
ment in Palestine. He helped
organize the Arab defense of
Jerusalem in 1948 and lost a leg in
the fighting.
HE SERVED as the Jordanian
Governor of East Jerusalem from
1961 to 1962, and as Jordan's Am-
bassador to London from 1965 to
After the Six-Day War,
Nusseibeh conducted secret talks
between Israel and Jordan on the
future of the West Bank and
maintained contacts with a wide
range of Israeli leaders, including
Moshe Dayan and Jerusalem
Mayor Teddy Kollek.
Late in the 1970's, Nusseibeh
appeared disillusioned with Jor-
dan, feeling that King Hussein
was indifferent to the West Bank
Palestinians. From being a
staunch supporter of Hussein he
came to sympathize with the PLO
which lost him the Jordanian
monarch's support. Nusseibeh's
last official position was as board
chairman of the Arab East
Jerusalem Electric Co.
Nusseibeh is on record as saying
he felt the biggest Arab failure
was missing the opportunity to
establish a Palestinian state in
1948, proposed in the United Na-
tions partition resolution,
alongside the Jewish State of

around the world met in Tripoli,
Libya, for a special "congress on

Strauss in Mideast
Will Try To Sell Arms To Saudis
BONN (JTA) West Germany is ex-
panding its military cooperation with
Saudi Arabia by appointing a Military At-
tache at its Embassy in Riyadh where no
such post previously existed.
It is also sending a counter-terrorist ex-
pert to the Saudi capital; and the schedul-
ed departure for Riyadh Sunday of Franz-
Josef Strauss, leader of Bavaria's conser-
vative Christian Social Union (CSU) is
widely interpreted here as a new West
German bid to sell arms to Saudi Arabia.
SOURCES HERE said government
policy with respect to arms sales to the
Saudis has not changed since Bonn of-
fered them highly sophisticated weapons
several years ago. Excluded "for the time
being" was the advanced Leopard-2 tank,
which is manufactured in Bavaria.
The Saudi took offense and refused to
buy any arms from West Germany unless
restrictions on certain weapons were
Strauss has strongly supported arms
sales to Saudi Arabia. He is a member of

the boards of several Bavarian-based
companies which have offered weapons
systems to that country. His party is
closely linked with the ruling Christian
Democratic Union (CDU) of Chancellor
Helmut Kohl.
November Memories
The Night of the Shattered Crystal
What do you think about in
Thanksgiving; arrival of winter;
and Kristallnacht, the Night of
Broken Glass...
What Jew who lives in our post-
Holocaust era can fail to be
reminded that this month in-
augurated, more than half a cen-
tury ago, the start of the Nazi ter-
ror? On a cold night in November
in Germany, bands of Nazis
destroyed synagogues and
created the opening which would
eventually allow them to destroy
human beings.
YET FOR JEWS, time is
seamless. The past always has its
reverberations in the present.
Thus, this month which com-
memorates the start of a period of
untold anti-Semitism, also
reminds us that hatred of the Jew
is not a fact of past history. Sadly,
anti-Semitism and bigotry are
found in our contemporary world,
as well.
To be sure, there is less institu-
tional anti-Semitism than there
once was. We don't hear about
medical schools and colleges
which maintain anti-Jewish
quotas. We don't hear about
hotels or clubs which advertise
that "Jews need not apply." But
these encouraging trends do not
mask the reality that anti-
Semitism, long after
Kristallnacht, and a generation
after Auschwitz, is still in our
Nowadays, anti-Semitism has
begun to wear a mask of anti-
Zionism. The terror of the old
anti-Semite, is now seen in the
terror of the new anti-Semite, the
modern terrorist.
THUS, a synagogue in Istanbul
is attacked and burned and its
worshippers murdered; or a street
in Jerusalem or some Jewish
quarter in Europe becomes the
new target. Or what about Lyn-
don LaRouche or the Aryan Na-
tion or a host of other groups,
which though small, nevertheless
spew forth their hatred of Jews,
much in the same manner that the
"small" followers of an Austrian
painter named Adolf Hitler did in
German beer gardens?
But anti-Semitism is not only
found in violence. It's found in the
raised eyebrow, in the snicker, in
the comment which masquerades
as detached intellectual inter-
change. Most recently, we read
how a renowned magazine, The
Nation, published an article in
which the author, Gore Vidal, at-
tacked two prominent Jews, Nor-
man Podhoretz and Midge Decter,
in classically anti-Semitic tones,
accusing them of dual loyalty (and
disloyalty, actually) to the United
States, because of their support
for Israel.
Similarly, a columnist in a pro-
minent conservative journal,
engaged in writing which also was
most negative to Jews. Clearly,
anti-Semitism is not confined to
the right or the left; its cancer can
attack any brand of ideology or
school of thought.
FOR US, what is important to
remember is that all anti-
Semitism begins with words, con-
tinues with action against proper-
ty, and ends in destruction of
human beings. November then
means Kristallnacht, and
Kristallnacht and Holocaust
always mean the same: Be Alert,
and don't forget.

Reagan Admission
Has No Bearing on 4 Israelis' Case
Friday, November 28, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 9
The disclosures of the
Reagan Administration
recently that it approved
covert shipments of
American weapons to Iran
"have no bearing what-
soever" on the prosecution
of 17 defendants, including
four Israelis, charged with
conspiracy to sell American
weapons to Iran, an Assis-
tant U.S. Attorney told a
court here last week.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Lorna
Schofield made the statement in
her opening remarks at a pretrial
motion hearing in Manhattan's
District Court The defendants in
the case face charges of con-
spiracy to resell $2.5 billion of
American arms to Iran and of
falsifying the documents needed
to gain U.S. approval for the
Judge Leonard Sand that she had
discussed the case with Justice
Department officials and people in

informed her that this case is not

A member of Temple Sinai of

volved with fundraising, scholar-
ship, the Youth Committee, usher-

related to any of the covert arms
shipments approved or or-
chestrated by the Reagan
Defense attorneys challenged
the prosecution's statement,
noting a remarkable convergence
of the accounts of defendants in
the case and the events confirmed
by the Reagan Administration
and other sources in the past
Attorney Paul Grand, represen-
ting the alleged middleman in the
conspiracy, Sam Evans, told the
court there was a "startling
overlap, coincidence and identi-
ty," between what the defendants
had said on tape and what was ac-
tually happening in government.
ON THE tapes recorded secret-
ly from December, 1985 to April,
1986 with the help of an Iranian
informant, Cyrus Hashemi, who
posed as an Iranian arms buyer,
the defendants said they believed
the policy toward selling weapons
to Iran was under evaluation
within the government.
The defendants said they believ-
ed the Administration would ap-
prove the arms shipments. In a
later tope, the defendants said the
arms deal had been approved and
that Vice President George Bush
favored it, Secretary of State
George Shultz was against but
nevertheless it would go forward.
These positions on the Iran policy
within the Admiministration have
also been confirmed, Grand said.
The defendants also said arms
sales would be allowed only for
the purpose of furthering contacts
with Iran.
SAND DID NOT rule on the at-
torneys' motions which would re-
quire the U.S. Attorney's office to
produce evidence of what the Ad-
ministration's policy on shipping
arms to Iran has been in fact for
the past two years and not what
the Administration purported it to
Sand told the defense attorneys
that he was not certain that such
material would be relevant to or
would help the dedendants' case.
He did not rule on the motion last
Tuesday, but is expected to do so
within the month.
William Kunstler, attorney for
defendant Nicos Minardos, asked
the court to produce the autopsy
and toxicology reports on the
government's key witness Cyrus
Hashemi, who died in London ap-
parently of leukemia in July. The
U.S. Attorney's office has said
that its investigation indicated
that Hashemi died of "apparently
natural" causes. Kunstler in-
dicated that it is possible that
Hashemi was killed.
He noted that Hashemi's death
could only help the prosecution
and hurt the defense because the
defense would not have the oppor-

tunity to cross-examine the key
KUNSTLER ALSO made a mo-
tion to exhume Hashemi's body to
investigate the possibility of a
murder. It was denied.
Hashemi, an Iranian expatriate,
has emerged as one of the intrigu-
ing puzzle pieces in the case. Re-
cent press reports indicated that
former U.S. Attorney General
Elliot Richardson had arranged a
contact between American of-
ficials and Hashemi last year in ef-
forts to free American hostages in
According to defense attorneys
in the case, Hashemi played a
similar role in 1980 when the
Carter Administration contacted
him to expedite the release of the
American hostages in the U.S.
Embassy in Tehran. Hashemi was
indicted in 1984 for selling
American weapons to Iran, after
an FBI surveillance of his room in
1980-81 revealed his activities.
Attorneys have said Hashemi
made a deal with the U.S. At-
torney's office to act as an infor-
mant in this case in exchange for
leniency on the 1984 charges.
an unconfirmed rumor during the
hearing. He suggested that a
defendant named in the indict-
ment, John de la Roque, who is
still a fugitive, is really Lt. Col.
Oliver North of the Marine Corps,
a highly placed official of the Na-
tional Security Council. North is
reportedly one of the chief ar-
chitects of the Iranian-U.S. arms
exchange and often disguises
himself and uses false names to
conceal his identity.
On the tapes, the defendants
discuss de la Roque's role in the
negotiations. He is said to be, on
the tapes, a former member of the
Delta Force who is very friendly
with Marine Corps Commandant
Gen. P.X. Kelley and with other
top Administration officials. On
one of the tapes, Evans told
Hashemi that de la Roque met
with Bush's aides in West Ger-
many to discuss the covert ship-
ment of arms to Iran.
The defense attorneys also
made motions to subpoena North,
National Security Adviser John
Poindexter, Bush and other
government officials. Sand did not
rule on this motion.

ABOUT 20 minutes into
Kahane's 75-minute address at
the Doubletree Hotel in Overland
Park, he berated the Arab
presence in Israel. Mousa
Shukair, 41, a member of the
Palestinian Human Rights Coali-
tion, and a group of supporters
began shouting from the back of
the hotel's meeting room.
"You took their land from
them," yelled one. Kahane yelled
for the protestors to be quiet
while he spoke. When they did
not, Kahane demanded that the
police eject Shukair.
Then, numerous police and hotel
security officers and about 140
stunned onlookers went hush as
the rabbi charged at Shukair.
Arms flailed, punches reportedly
were thrown, and Gary Lockhart,
a Kach International member
from Lawton, Okla., helped police
separate the rabbi and Shukair.
Shukair and one of his sup-
porters, Rezek Muslet, 26, were
led away in handcuffs by police,
charged with disorderly conduct.
Another half dozen of their sup-
porters also left the ballroom.
DESPITE THE interruption,
Kahane, founder of the militant
Jewish Defense League and the
Kach Party's lone member of

the Kach fund-raiser. Overland

National UJA Hatikvah Mission Offers
Opportunity to Explore Israel
Hope Voiced for Calm
NEW YORK, N.Y. Masada,
the Old City of Jerusalem, the red
deserts of the Negev, and the
mountainous Galilee will be
among the highlights of the
Seventh National United Jewish
Appeal Hatikvah Mission to Israel
this February.
Open to single men and women
between the ages of 24 and 40, the
mission will provide its par-
ticipants with the opportunity to
experience firsthand the special
qualities of Israeli life, said Victor
Gelb of Cleveland, Ohio, Chair-
man of the UJA Overseas Pro-
grams Department, who announc-
ed this mission.
Co-chaired by Esther Fink of
Chicago and Ronald Kramer of
Tidewater, Virginia, the mission
is scheduled for February 8-18,
"The UJA Hatikvah Singles
Mission is a special opportunity
for single men and women to meet
each other and Israelis in an ex-
citing, purposeful series of
events," Ms. Fink said. "Hatikvah
is known for the breadth of ex-
perience it offers to Jewish
singles," Kramer added. "Over
3,000 persons have participated in
UJA Singles Missions in the past
eight years," Kramer said, "and
this promises to have the best pro-
gramming ever."
Participants will be briefed by
representatives of UJA's
beneficiary agencies the Jewish
Agency for Israel and the
American-Jewish Joint Distribu-
tion Committee and will visit
absorption centers, settlements
within Israel's pre-1967 borders,
Youth Aliyah centers for troubled
teenagers and Project Renewal
neighborhoods where UJA
funds are applied.
The Hatikvah travelers
"hatikvah" means "the hope"
will visit the Old City
Jerusalem, the Knesset, and the
Western Wall, and will explore
the artists' colony of Sfad, Old
Jaffa and the Dead Sea. They will
meet with soldiers, students and
homemakers, as well as politi-
cians, businessmen and educators,
and will see history as uncovered
at archaeological excavations.
Mission participants may ex-
tend their stay or stop off in
Europe, or both, before their
return to the United States. Total
cost of the basic mission package
is $1,550 from New York, in-
cluding air fare, land costs, and
first-class hotels. For further in-
formation, contact your local

U.S. Jews
Condemn Identity Card Proposal
NEW YORK The pro-
posal to mark the identity
cards of converted Jews in
Israel with a special stamp
indicating they were not
born Jews was condemned
this week by Ernest Michel,
executive vice president of
UJA-Federation in New
In an address at the annual lun-
cheon of American Women for
Bar-Ilan University of Israel, at
which a veteran New York UJA
leader, Mrs. Myrtle Hirsch, was
honored, Michel said:
"I remember growing up in Ger-
many before World War II, being
forced to carry an identity card in
which the Nazis identified me as a
Jew and gave me and every
other Jewish male the middle
name of Israel," Michel told some
180 luncheon guests in the Plaza
Hotel. "Ev*ery Jewish woman and
girl was given the middle name of
Sarah for her identity card, which
was also stamped with the epithet
"THIS IS NO policy for Israel
to adopt," Michel said. "I deplore
it as I'm sure every one of you
does. At the same time," he add-
ed, "I think it would be wrong of
us to exaggerate the failings of
Israeli society.
"Israel was created out of hun-
dreds of different civilizations. It
would be folly to expect that, after
a brief 38 years, Israel should turn
out to be an ideal society. Yet it is
a nation that every one of us can
take pride in and rejoice in as we
share in its achievements.
"Many of you were shocked, as I
was, by the reckless act of an
Orhodox rabbi in seeking to break
up Reform services in a
synagogue in Jerusalem during
Simchat Torah," Michel said.
"That event made headlines.
What did not receive so much at-
tention was the apology and the
Jurist Urges:
Drop Trial of Demjanjuk;
Witnesses No Longer Reliable
acceptance of that apology that
followed, and the embrace of the
Orthodox rabbi and the Reform
rabbi that sealed the peaceful
resolution of this incident.
"ISRAEL IS a country of
diversity, and will remain so,"
Michel told the Bar-Ilan women.
"Let us take pricje in that diversi-
ty. Let us remember what Israel
means to us and to the millions for
whom it has offered a haven of
rescue and the opportunity to
build lives of dignity, of faith and
of security."
Mrs. Hirsch, chairman of Pro-
ject Renewal for the UJA-
Federation women's campaign
since 1980, was honored as "a
dedicated Zionist, outstanding
humanitarian and devoted com-
munal leader in the United States
and Israel."
She received the award from
Mrs. Jane Stern, president of Bar-
Ilan's American Board of
Overseers. Mrs. Henrietta
Shapiro, president of American
Women for Bar-Ilan, said pro-
ceeds of the luncheon would be us-
ed for scholarships to outstanding
students at the University. Mrs.
Doris Freeman served as lun-
cheon chairman.

According to police sources,
much of the violence was whipped
up by members of Rabbi Meir
Kahane's Kach Party, and by now
it may have exhausted itself. The
roughnecks were verbally chastiz-
ed Monday by Sephardic Chief
Rabbi Mordechai Eliahu who urg-
ed the public not to be "drawn in-
to acts that violate the spirit of the
Torah." He suggested that
whoever wanted to honor Amdi's
memory should study the Torah

the Arabs" should repent.

issued a condemnation Monday of
all elements, Jews and Arabs
alike, who have "caused unrest in
the city."
Foreign Minister Shimon Peres
said the anti-Arab violence caused
"grave damage" to Israel's image
President Chaim Herzog, in a
statement to Israel Radio, de-
nounced the outrages by both
Jews and Arabs and said that the
violence should be put down "with
an iron fist." He said that the
violent actions by Jews "can only
bring tremendous danger to the
standing and image of Jerusalem,
and plays directly into the hands
of our enemies." He also denounc-
ed the murder of Amdi and sent
his condolences to the victim's
family, promising that everything
possible would be done to stamp
out such racist and terrorist

Monday, joined with Mayor Teddy
Kollek in warning that anti-Arab
violence played into the hands of
terrorists who want nothing more
than to create strife between Jews
and Arabs in Jerusalem.
Interior Minister Yitzhak
Peretz, of the Orthodox Shas Par-
ty, condemned Rabbi Moshe Lev-
inger. the Gush Emunim leader
from Hebron, and others who
blamed the government for
Amdi's death. Three Arab youths
from the West Bank town of Jen in
suspected of the crime are in
custody. They have been linked to
George Habash's Damascus-based
Popular Front for the Liberation
of Palestine.
Nusseibeh's funeral was
relatively modest. Although the
former Jordanian Defense
Minister had maintained personal
ties with Israeli leaders, no Israeli
personalities attended the
funeral. Apparently they wanted
to avoid provoking Jewish ex-
tremists. Kollek stayed away
because he did not attend the
memorial march for Amdi.
Atty. Gen. Fights Legislation
To Avoid French Extradition
Attorney General Yosef
Harish is fighting proposed
legislation to avoid the ex-
tradition of William Nakash,
a Jew wanted for robbery
and murder in France.
Nakash is supported by a coali-
tion of rightwing and religious
elements who say they fear he will
be a target of revenge on ethnic
grounds if he is imprisoned in
France. The murder victim was an
Nakash allegedly killed him in
the course of a robbery in the
French town of Besancon in 1983.
France has asked for extradition.
But Justice Minister Avraham
Sharir has proposed a special law
that would give him the authority
to impose a prison sentence on
Nakash in Israel equivalent to
whatever sentence is pronounced
in France.
The case is being argued before
the Ministerial Legislation Com-
mittee where Harish maintained
that the Justice Minister's pro-
posal runs counter to Israel's legal
system as well as its international
legal commitments. He also de-
nounced Nakash as "trash" who
"came to Israel in order to
destroy it."
The Attorney General's harsh
words were in response to a
remark by Interior Minister Yit-
zhak Peretz of the Shash Party
that the "Jewish aspects'* of the
case should be considered.
Nakash's attorney, Ronald Rot,
filed a complaint against Harish
with the Justice Minister. "The
Attorney General has no moral or
functional right to call my client
trash," Rot said.

else can?" she asked. "It's not a
matter of revenge but of justice

The Association of Children of
Nazi Victims charged that
Cohen's remarks lent legitimacy
to those who want to forgive the
Nazis for their crimes. Associa-
tion president Edna Steinberg
suggested that they would only
encourage neo-Nazis throughout
the world.
Meanwhile, Tel Aviv attorney
Gershon Orion made dear that he
agreed to assist in Demjanjuk's
defense only at the request of the
Israel Bar Association to assist
the defendant's American lawyer,
Mark O'Connor, with respect to
Israel's legal system. Orion stress-
ed that even so", he would join the
defense only on the basis of a
court order.
HE EXPLAINED that he need

accusations by his family and
friends and others that he was
helping a Nazi.
Demjanjuk, the first Nazi war
criminal suspect ever extradited
to Israel, will go on trial in
Jerusalem on Jan. 19. About 67
survivors of Nazi death camps are
expected to testify. The case will
be heard by a panel of three
judges Supreme Court Justice
Dov Levin and District Court

Police Chief Says
Illegal Arms in Jerusalem
David Kraus, Chief of
Israel's national police, told
the Cabinet Sunday that
caches of illegal arms have
been found in the possession
of Jews in the Old City. He
said they included grenades
and light weapons. But he
did not believe they
signified the existence of an
anti-Arab Jewish
underground such as was
exposed in the West Bank
two years ago.
Kraus provided the intelligence
information to the Ministers after
a week of anti-Arab violence and
harassment by Jews that followed
the fatal stabbing on Nov. 15 of
Eliahu Amdi. a 22-year-old stu-
dent at the Shuvu Bamm yeshiva
in the Moslem quarter of the Old
City. Amdi was murdered near
the yeshiva. Three Arab youths
suspected of the crime are in
KRAUS SAID that unless calm
is restored to Jerusalem, massive
military reinforcements would
have to be called in to keep the
peace. He said the police prefer-
red not to ask the army for help,
but it could not allow itself to be
overwhelmed by rioters.
Kraus told the Cabinet that
searches for illegal arms would
continue. He said he understood
that people felt a need to protect
themselves but insisted that the
police could not allow them to act
in an illegal manner.
He shocked the ministers with
his description of the persistent
provocations by Shuvu Banim

Making Up
With Jews
British Labor Party is mending
fences with Britain's
350,000-strong Jewish community
and is seeking to renew its tradi-
tional friendship with Israel's
Labor Party, strained in recent
years because of the emergence of
anti-Zionism in some Labor circles
here. Labor Party leader Neil Kin-
nock spoke at a Labor Zionist din-
ner marking the 80th anniversary
of the establishment of Poale Zion
in Eastern Europe and the 65th
anniversary of its British branch
affiliation with the British Labor
Party. He shared the platform
with the Israeli Minister of
Economic Coordination Gad
Yaacobi said the growing rap-
prochement between the labor
movements in both countries was
symbolized by their common
views on terrorism. He praised
the British government for its
tough action against Syria, which
was involved in an attempt to
blow up an El Al airliner last
Kinnock stressed the continued
need to deal with the causes of ter-
rorism, but he spelled out a six-
point plan to deal with its effects.
They are: more effective coordina-
tion between national security
agencies; tighter extradition laws;
better cooperation between police
forces; an international conven-
tion to protect travellers from hi-
jacking and murder; exposure of
the support systems and state fun-
dings on which terrorists rely.

neighbors. He said one of their
practices was to hurl bags of feces
and urine from the yeshiva
building at Arab homes nearby.
The yeshiva is described as a
school for penitents and reported-
ly has a large number of former
criminals in its student body.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir called
on "all sectors of the Jerusalem
populace" Sunday to preserve
order and peace in Jerusalem and
avoid public disturbances.
JUST HOURS after Kraus ap-
peared before the Cabinet, a
Molotov cocktail was thrown in an
Old City street. A memorial ser-
vice for Amdi, marking the end of
the seven-day mourning period,
took the form of a procession from
the Shmuel Hanavi neighborhood
in West Jerusalem, where the
murder victim had lived, to the
site in the Old City Moslem
quarter where he was killed.
