Blame 'Holocaust'
For l\Tco-i\Tai Rise
IONN (JTA) Interior
nster Gerold Tandler of
Bavaria raised a heated con-
troversy when he stated in
Munich that the screening of the
American television film
Holocaust in West Germany last
Mai was largely responsible for a
dramatic rise in neo-Nazi ac-
tivity. Tandler presented that
view in his annual report to the
^'iinstitutional body charged with
"H rolling political extremism.
Hf attributed neo-Nazism to
nt i Scmitism, denial of Nazi war
Brimes and glorification of the
Hitler era. The number of anti-
pemitic incidents reported in
Bavaria in 1979 was 279 com-
Jarcd to 127 in the previous year.

pirred in Munich and Nurem-

member of the Social Democratic
Party opposition in the Bavarian
State Parliament, said Tandler's
claim that the Holocaust film
canned an increase in neo-Nazi
activities was a "monstrosity."
Whoever tries to explain the
phenomenon in such a manner is
in fact trying to veil the real
reasons, he charged.
Holocaust was screened on
national television in January,
1979 and according to polls had a
dramatic influence on the
estimated 26 million viewers. But
while the film ended West
Germans' silence and indifference
toward the Nazi persecution of
Jews, later polls showed that the
effects quickly wore off.
(JTA) The Foreign
Ministry of Egypt an-
nounced that the autonomy
talks with Israel will not be
resumed. The official
reason given was Egypt's

nouncement in Jerusalem

reading had approved a bill
declaring united Jerusalem

because of "lack of progress" but
declared, in the course of a four-
hour speech to the Egyptian

he would announce the date of

RESTON ADDED that "what
we want to do is to have a chance

Reston said he was not aware in

Ministry's announcement "or
any communication" from Egypt
about the Egyptian govern-
ment's second suspension of the
talks within the week.
Reston said that the talks with
the Egpytians will begin "very
shortly." but he did not specify
when that would happen. The
U.S. Ambassador to Egypt,

News in Brief
Drinan Hopes His Voice Will
Continue to be Heard
Robert Drinan (D., Mass.) will
retire from Congress at the close
of its current session next
January, but he intends to con-
tinue raising his voice on behalf
of Israel and Soviet Jewry "in
every possible forum" following
that retirement, he has informed
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
Fr. Drinan is abiding by the
papal decree directing him not to
seek reelection to a sixth term as
a congressman. As a committed
Jesuit priest, his associates re-
ported, he has no choice but quit
public office even though he has
served his constituency with
obvious satisfaction.
Now 60 years old, Fr. Drinan
entered Congress in 1971 and has
been from the beginning con-
sistently outspoken in support of
Israel's security and measures to
relieve the plight of Soviet Jewry.
TEL AVIV Recently-cap-
tured terrorists claimed under
interrogation that they were

Cairo which Israelis believed was
shut down when the peace
process with Egypt began. El
Fatah is the terrorist arm of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion. Its Cairo office is located on
Adlie St., near the synagogue.

The Rabbinical Assembly, the |

annual convention at the Concord I
Hotel here with the controversial
issue of the ordination of women
high on the agenda.
Rabbi Wolfe Kelman, exec-
utive vice president of the
organization, referred to it in his
opening address when he urged
the 600 delegates to approach the
subject in a balanced way that
respects the sensibilities of the
traditionalists who oppose or-
dination of women but would
recognize "that the liberal also
has a conscience."
The debate is expected to be
enlivened by the lobbying activ-

Menachem Begin said that there was no justification for

Begin. "I myself read a similar statement in the ears of

continue, but this depends on the positive attitude of all

Understanding the Refugee
As Jews, we are perhaps more aware of the
meaning of the word, "refugee," than most other
peoples in western civilization. We have been
refugees, at one time or another, for thousands of
years. And even when we were not, our permanent
homes, wherever we chose to make them, which often
meant wherever we were permitted to make them,
took on the psychological set of a wayside inn.
History has repeatedly taught us to be prepared
to be plundered and have to pass on.
With this ancient and sophisticated relationship
to the status of refugee that is a part of our very
fiber, we understand in the best way possible, in the
gut sense, the plight of the new wave of Cubans who
seek refuge in the United States, more specifically
South Florida, from the oppression of the Castro
To seek freedom in America is a tradition since
the founding of the nation, indeed since the founding
of the colonies a century and a half before that.
The Need for Law
No people in our recent history has been
welcomed with more widely opened arms, more
assistance and encouragement in the emigration
process than the Cuban people. Even today, when
the ragtag flotilla of boats continues to bring
refugees to South Florida in desperate contravention
of the national rules and regulations being hammered
out in Washington, not to stem their tide but to
control it so that their emigration is in accordance
with American law and not Castro's meddling, once
they are here the Cubans are welcomed.
We raise this issue in our columns as an
American issue, not a specifically sectarian Jewish
issue. Most of the Jews who wanted to leave Cuba
did so long ago, beginning in the first great wave of
refugees in the mid-1960's. There are few Jews in
Cuba today, and their number among the newest
wave of emigres is surely miniscule.
We raise this issue because the emigration
process from Mariel itself, not the luckless Cubans
seeking to leave there, frustrates American law and
overheats the social machinery of the South Florida
community, where the new arrivals want almost
uniformly to make their home.
Those who oppose the influx of Cubans on an
ethnic basis are a separate problem in
un Americanism.
The focus of the problem is Fidel Castro himself,
whose manipulative methods trading on the tragedy
of Cuban refugees have encouraged the flouting of
American law. It is against this mischievousness
that we object. It is to be hoped that all Americans,
including Cuban Americans, object to this, as well.
Stilling the Violence
The violence that tore Miami apart last weekend
and early into this week can be understood but not
The Arthur McDuffie verdict seems impossible
on its face. Someone must have murdered him;
surely, he did not murder himself.
Clearly what is needed is a deep-seated overhaul
of our system of justice that gave rise to this
miscarriage of the law. What is needed is a more
careful screening of candidates who present them-
selves For the position of police officer. With greater
attention to this, McDuffie might not have been
We observe with admiration the way in which
the Community Relations Board of Dade County
went into action over the weekend in an effort to help
stem the tide of violence.
In these activities, the Greater Miami Rab-
binical Association has also played a role and the
organization's statement, along with those of other
responsible organizations and leaders, is one that
ought to be heeded.
A^uPerta^- most emPathic of all were the words of
Arthur Duffie s own griefstricken mother on Miami
television, who pleaded with the rioters to "cut it
out Needed she said, is "God in us." Her son, she
declared, would still be living and working in the
community today were "God in us."
We agree. It is a good basis on which to move
forward to reunite the strife-torn Miami communitv
and to rectify the wrongs that gave rise to the
McDuffie tragedy in the first place.
Nightmare of McDuffie Verdict
IF THE Arthur McDuffie case
has not been a national cause
celebre up until now, it surely will
be in the weeks and months
I was satisfied with the Johnny
Jones decision in Miami, the case
declaring the former Dade
County school superintendent
guilty of lining his own pockets
to the tune of gold plumbing for
his Napes, Fla. vacation home.
I AM NOT satisfied with the
McDuffie decision. In fact, I am
incensed by it, and those who
judged that a change of venue
was necessary if the policemen
involved were to get a fair
hearing on the charge that they
had beaten a Black man to death
in the process of arresting him
must now live with the thought
that what they really
encouraged in Tampa was an
unfair hearing, an acquittal by a
community that would not have
to bear either the moral con-
sequences or the violent social
realities of the fall-out that the
acquittal has already given rise
But both cases, McDuffie and
Jones, are part of the process of
trial by jury. If I acknowledge
that trial by jury is a just and
indispensible building block in
the American juridical process,
then it is unreasonable to con-
clude that the process worked in
one case and not in the other.
It can not be, I must conclude,
that truth has triumphed in one
instance and been brutalized and
subverted in the other.
THE TROUBLE is that what
is involved here are personal
predilections. I have given myself
the privilege of sitting in on both
cases as an uninvited juror. I
accept the Jones ver
correct because I agree with it,
and the McDuffie verdict as an!
insult to human intelligence
because I disagree.
By definition, these
elusions are my personal opinion
But the point is that the juridical
process, in toto, is predicated
upon personal opinion upon!
the human fallibility of others, as
well as my own.
If I accept my own human I
fallibility, I must accept the]
human fallibility of others I

incapable of arriving at sound,
objective conclusions based upon
verifiable evidence. On the other
hand, I do not trust this capacity
for objectivity in others.
IN FACT, it is subjectivity I
expect in others; while at the
same time I am blind to precisely
the same subjectivity in me. For
example, on the basis of the given
as an all-white Panhandle jury, 1
conclude there could not possibly -
have been a just verdict in the
Arthur McDuffie case, which
means guilty.

Private Club Bias Won't Go Away
I oil/Mar KolAnnn tMMMMjMMMMMMMMt^mMaf^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^.
Robert j
Say a fellow belongs to i
private club that won't admit
Jews, blacks, Haitians, and
Jehovah's Witnesses. Then say
the same fellow, when tax return
time rolls around, claims
exemption for the $25 or $50 or
$500 he paid in dues. Does the
private club still have the all-
clear signal?
If 22 of New York City's 43-
member City Council have their
way, the answer may be "no,"
and "all-clear" will turn to
"murky." For the Gotham
council people have designed a
proposed ordinance under which
the private club would have to
answer to the law if more than 20
percent of its members deducted
their club dues as business ex-
penses on their tax returns. The
prime argument is that lots of
business is transacted at the
private clubs along the bar,
across the bridge table, in the
handball court, etc. making
the tax exemption a no-no.
That's one ingenious, new
approach to the irksome problem
of private club discrimination.

contracts of more than $10,000

Ifor reality" by implying that oil

("capitulate" and accept an in-
dependent Palestinian state.
"NOT ONLY would this fail to

declared Abraham H. Foxman,
ADI.'s associate national
director, "but it would have
precisely the opposite effect: it
would increase danger to the U.S.
[ because a Palestinian state would
inevitably thrust a Soviet
surrogate like a dagger into the

Foxman added that "Mobil

Citing Mobil's contention that

Mideast impasse, he said:
"Indeed the Arabs wonder about
U.S. reliability, as do many other

THE REAL reasons, ac-
cording to ADL, stem from the
perception that America allowed

Saudis to use oil for political
purposes only to have the Saudis
rebuff them time and again."
Oil prices went up drastically,
Foxman added, due to "control

House on Fire
Three residents of the Chabad
Lubavitcher House on the UCLA
campus in Westwood, Los
Angeles, were killed in a fire
which swept through the three-
story building in the early hours
of May 13. Three of the six
persons in the house at the time
escaped by jumping through
windows. One of them was in-
jured as was one of the 55 firemen
who battled the blaze. The Fire
Department said the building
was a total loss and estimated the
damage at $1 million.
The B'nai B'rith Messenger of
Los Angeles informed the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that the Fire
Department has labeled the fire
of suspicious origin, pending
completion of an investigation

served as West Coast
headquarters of the Chabad
Lubavitcher movement.
Solomon, managing editor, one of
the victims was a 17-year-old
student from Beverly Hills,
another was a recently arrived
immigrant from the Soviet Union

The jury ruled McDuffie guilty
for simply being Black, which it
was not their job to do. They
were telling the bureaucrats that
they are tired of egalitarianism
and welfarism, which lie at the
root of our nation's racial and
ethnic polarities.
The danger in their verdict is
that it gave carfe blanche to the
police to put an end to the Arthur

from us Boy, and you've had it.
The verdict was a bugler's call to
a battle that can never be waged

It was a monstrous verdict, not
only on its own terms, but
because of the new forces it has
unleashed in the effort to achieve
racial and ethnic harmony. It
judged not McDuffie's murder,
but the vitality of Cubans and
Puerto Ricans and Mexicans who
come in increasing numbers to
these shores. And Blacks, whose
tribe increases, though we do
everything in our power to make

It was a verdict that said: Stay

it defied American history and

Soviets Found Guilty Of
Miscarriage in Sharansky Case
An international tribunal con-
vening here found the Soviet
Union guilty of a grave
miscarriage of justice in the
imprisonment of Anatoly
Sharansky and called on it to
release the Jewish activist who
was sentenced in 1977 to 13 years
in jail for alleged espionage and
anti-Soviet activities.
The 11-member panel, com-
posed of distinguished jurists,
diplomats, political and civil
rights leaders from many
countries, reached its unanimous
verdict after a two-day review of
the evidence in the Sharansky
case. The tribunal was chaired by
Andrew Young, former U.S.
Ambassador to the United
ITS MEMBERS included
Coretta King, widow of Martin
Luther King Jr.; former U.S.
Attorney General Ramsay Clark;
Rep. Robert Drinan (D., Mass.),
a Jesuit priest active on behalf of
Soviet Jewry; Mario Soares,
former Premier of Portugal;
Johan den Uyl. Jormer Prime
Minister of The Netherlands; and
George Fernandes, former
Minister of Transport and
Industry in India.
McGill University law
professor Irwin Cotler, legal
counsel to Sharansky, served as
his representative before the
tribunal. At the opening session,
Sharansky's wife, Avital. made
an impassioned appeal for the life
of her husband and for all
prisoners of conscience in the
Soviet Union.
The official Soviet news agency
Novosty charged that the
tribunal was an anti-Soviet forum
that was inciting to "cold war"
and would cause a deterioration
in relations between East and
West. Harry van den Bergh, a
Labor member of the Dutch
Parliament, told a press con-
ference here last week that the
charge was "nonsense."

Unanimous Resolution
Knesset Condemns Ambush

The Knesset unanimously
adopted a resolution condemning
the terrorist ambush that claimed
the lives of six Jews in Hebron.
But the stormy debate over
responsibility for the incident
and future policy on the West
Bank, underlined the deep
divisions within the Knesset and
the public at large which have
surfaced as a result of the Hebron
The moderates scored a victory
when the Knesset's Foreign
Affairs and Security Committee
postponed a crucial vote on an
appeal against a Cabinet
majority decision to establish
two Jewish religious schools in
COMMITTEE chairman
Moshe Arens, a Herat hard-liner,
objected vehemently, apparently
because he was convinced that
the appeal against the decision
by Deputy Premier Yigael
Yadin's Democratic Movement
would be rejected. But he was
foiled by Pessach Grapper of
Likud's Liberal Party wing who
intimated that if Arens forces the
issue, the Liberals would vote
with the opposition.
The Knesset debate was
marked by bitter charges and
counter-charges hurled by right-
wing extremists, moderates and
leftists The exchange was
triggered by Labor MK Maim
Barlev who observed that the
Hebron killings could have been
avoided had the government
implemented its own decision to
evacuate a group of tiush
Emunim women who have been
occupying a former Hadassah
clinic in Hebron lor the past year.
Harlev referred to the weekly
"procession" by religious
militants from the Machpela
Cave synagogue to the former
clinic to demonstrate their
solidarity with the squatters. He
called this a needless provocation
at a time when Israel should seek
to minimize friction between
Jews and Arabs.
Cohen of the ultranationalist
Tehiya faction responded that if
the women were a provocation,
the entire Zionist enterprise was
a provocation. The shouting
match that ensued ended only
after Knesset Speaker Yitzvak
Berman ordered Cohen ejected
from the chamber.
Defense Minister Ezer
Weizman, target of a fierce at-
tack from religious and
nationalist militants for alleged
laxity in dealing with West Hank
Arabs, defended the Military
Government's policies in the
territory. He railed for a careful,
non-extremist policy in the
Wei/man conceded that
political considerations, par-
ticularly those connected with
the peace process and the current
round of autonomy talks, guided
Israeli policy on the West Bank
to some extent. But he firmly
denied that this had "cost lives."
He urged that the pursuit of
peace should continue to be the
basis of all Israeli actions.
THE KNESSET resolution I
called for the restoration of law
and order in the territories to
ensure peaceful co-existence
between Jews and Arabs. The
resolution expressed condolences
to the families of the Hebron
victims and wished the wounded
a speedy recovery.
Yehuda Ben-Meir, a National
Religious Party hard-liner,
demanded legal measures that
would place actions by the
Military Government beyond the
jurisdiction of the Supreme
Court. He was referring to a
temporary injunction granted by
the high court yesterday barring
the deportation of West Bank
political figures without due
The injunction was issued on
the appeal of the Palestinian
Council of National Guidance,
which was set up as the leading
body of the Arabs in the ad-
ministered territories, after the
mayors of Hebron and Halhoul
and the Moslem religous judge of
Hebron were summarily deported
following the Hebron killings.
Linn of Likud's La'am faction
urged the deportation of every
member of the Council and of the
principals of any school on the
West Bank whose students
participate in anti-Israel
demonstrations. But Weizman
made it clear that the Military
Government is not planning any
future deportations at this time.
The polarization was evident in
the public sector today, in a
"battle of ads" published in
major newspapers. One ad-
vertisement enjoined Barlev to
remember the 1978 Haifa Tel
Aviv coastal road massacre by
noting that "There were no
women from the Hadassah
building at that time."
The same ad also claimed that
the former Chief of Staff was
responsible for a "national
disaster" the impact of which is
still felt today. The reference was
to the breaching of the "Barlev
Line" on the Suez Canal by
Egyptian troops in the initial
stages of the 1973 war.
ANOTHER advertisement
was aimed at Weizman. "Can you
say with all frankness and truth
that our hands have not shed this
blood?" it asked. An ad-
vertisement signed by Irit
Blitzer, who said she was the
mother of two sons, asked the
government: "Is your belief in
life weaker than the belief of the
Hadassah (clinic) women? What
are you doing to enable our sons
to live. Mothers of sons, tell
(Premier Menachem) Begin that
not only the Gush Emunim has a
say in our country. We want to
know why is a settlement in
Hebron so vital for our security?"
