"Like its predecessor, this

from divisiveness and extremism,

consideration for others, and will
seek to augment the love of Israel

He said that both Likud and the
Labor Party shared the aim of a

between the main coalition part-

New Conspiracy?
Is Veep Bush Behind
Arms Sales to Iran?
Attorneys for some of 17
defendants, including four
Israelis charged here with
conspiracy to illegally sell
American weapons to Iran,
have made motions to
dismiss the charges on
grounds of entrapment, lack
or jurisdiction for the case in
New York and prejudicial
pretrial publicity.
A hearing on the motion before
a federal judge in the Manhattan
U.S. District Court was scheduled
to begin late Monday. After hear-
ing from the defense and prosecu-
tion, the court will decide whether
to dismiss the charges.
AN AFFIDAVIT filed late last
month in support of this motion by
Paul Grand, one of the attorneys
representing Sam Evans who is
the alleged middleman in the con-
spiracy, contends that high-
ranking Administration, State

"We didn't have any precise

Shultz said on the NBC-TV "Mt-et

that Reagan and Gorbachev also
discussed the "hundreds of
thousands who would love to
emigrate. So all of that was
discussed, but there was no
precise agreement on either of
those cases."

Department and Pentagon of-
ficials considered and eventually
approved covert arms sales of
American military hardware to
Iran, using some of the defen-
dants as agents.
Grand also alleges that U.S.
Customs agents and a govern-
ment informant in the case
pressured the defendants to use il-
legal means to obtain the weapons
for Iran, while the defendants in-
sisted on using legal means.
Grand's affidavit, based on
some 200 tapes the government
recorded with the help of the in-
formant and numerous interviews
with defendants in the case,
claims that Vice President George
Bush, Secretary of Defense
Caspar Weinberger, Marine
Corps commandant Gen. P.X.
Kelley and unnamed State
Department and Pentagon of-
ficials were in contact directly
with several of the defendants and
were involved in an active debate
over changing U.S. government
policy to begin covert arms sales
to Iran on a quiet level.
GRAND AND other defense at-
torneys received access to copies
of the government tapes as part of
the discovery process in criminal
cases. In his affidavit, Grand
quotes from taped conversations
between the defendants and the
government informant in which
the defendants say they met with
Bush's aides in West Germany to
discuss an arms deal with the Ira-
nians and that Bush had given
"the green light."
The affidavit also cites press
reports in which an unnamed
White House official acknowledg-
ed "a secret tilt toward Iran after
six years of mutual hostility"
within the Reagan
This official reportedly stated
the U.S. hopes to solidify relations
with "reasonable" leaders in
Tehran and "regularize" the arms
flow from the U.S. directly to Iran
instead of going through mid-
dlemen, one of which was iden-
tified as Israel.
THE WEAPONS allegedly
under negotiation included F-4
and F-5 fighter jets, C-130
transport planes, thousands of
TOW missiles, Hawk missiles,
Sidwinders, Sparrow guided
missiles and Skyhawk aircraft.
According to the indictment,
the weapons were already in the
possession of Israel and three un-
named countries, and the defen-
dants were conspiring to resell the
arms without obtaining the proper
licenses for resale from the State
Department. The State Depart-
ment is the ultimate authority for
approving foreign military aid.
Under the U.S. ban imposed on
selling American arms to Iran,

THE TWO CASES he referred
to were those of David Goldfarb, a
long-time refusenik, who was
flown to the U.S. by Armand
Hammer last Thursday with his
wife, Cecilia, and Viktor and In-
easa Flerov who were told Friday
they could leave for Israel. Inessa
Flerova has a brother in Israel,
Michael Shirman, who suffers
from acute leukemia. She will

war crime suspect John Demjan-
juk appealed to the High Court of
Justice last Friday against the
decision by a lower court to hold
him in custody until the end of
legal proceedings against him.
The Jerusalem District Court
ruled that Demjanjuk would re-,
main in detention after the state
charged him with murdering
thousands of Jews at the
Treblinka death camp in Poland
during World War II.
Demjanjuk, 66, was extradited
from the U.S. last February. He
has continuously argued that he
was not the Nazi criminal known
as "Ivan the Terrible," and that
he had never been to Treblinka.
In the petition filed at the High
Court, his lawyer, Mark O'Con-
nor, said he could not present the
full arguments against his client's
continued detention because he
was not presented with all the
evidence against Demjanjuk. The

Asked on "Meet the Press"
about criticism that the U.S. was
making concessions to the Soviets
in return for the release of in-
dividuals, Shultz replied, "trading
in human beings is inherently a
repulsive matter." He added,
however, that the Soviet "system
is as it is. When we can get people
out we're glad to have them out."
HE STRESSED that it was not
only important to gain the emigra-
tion of people whose names are
well known, but also the "great

"he will be treated with the

kind of warmth out there in the
American public ... because of
the human rights problem."
On other matters, Shultz said
the situation along Israel's nor-
thern border was "tense," but he
did not expect a war to break out.
"We certainly don't want that to
happen," he said. He added, "We
do have a situation where Israel in

THE U.S. Customs Department
and the U.S. Attorney's Office of
the Justice Department built their
case on what Grand's affidavit
claims was an elaborate sting
operation conducted with the
cooperation of a former Iranian
arms procurement agent. Cyrus
Hashemi, who was indicted in the
U.S. in 1984 for selling American-
made weapons to Iran.
Hashemi, who posed as an arms
buyer for the Iranian government,
agreed to record various meetings
and phone conversations with the
defendants as part of a coopera-
tion agreement made with the
government in which he would not
stand trial immediately for 1984
Hashemi, the government's key
witness, died of acute leukemia in
a London hospital in July. After
an official investigation into the
cause of death, the U.S. At-

cluded that Hashemi died of "ap-
parently natural circumstances "

ment and the trial.
now relies almost entirely on some
200 tapes of phone conversations
and meetings between Hashemi
and the defendants.
Grand used excerpts from the
tapes in his affidavit to show that
Hashemi attempted at every step
of the negotiations to encourage
the defendants to obtain
American arms illegally. The ex-
cerpts show that the defendants
insisted on exhausting all the legal
channels for obtaining the arms
with legitimate American ap-
proval. The excerpts also show
that the defendants were convinc-
ed that U.S. officials were goine
to give that approval.
In the tapes, Hashemi also turn-
ed down several of the defen
dants' offers to sell Iran non-
Amencan weaponry, including
r rench Mirage jets.

government's economic program
a "Zionist economy." Its goals, he
said, are "reducing inflation to ac-
ceptable levels in order to attract
immigration and ensure economic
growth with work available for all
newcomers, and the settlement of
the entire Eretz Israel the
Biblical land of Israel or
According to Shamir, "The uni-
ty government which has just con-
cluded the first half of its term of
office, has already registered
some not inconsiderable
achievements in the economy,
in labor relations, in foreign
policy, in the war against Arab
terrorism, and in fortifying
Israel's security."
He expressed his "thanks and
appreciation to the outgoing
Prime Minister, Mr. Shimon
Peres, for the understanding and
cooperation he accorded me dur-
ing the two years (of Peres'
tenure), and to wish him the best
in his next position" as Foreign
SHAMIR presented an essen-
tially conservative economic pro-
gram. "We have to adopt the rule
of refraining as far as possible
from any government interven-
tion in the economic sector, unless
the need to do so has been pro-
ven," he said.
"In any other case, there is no
place for subsidies, for incentives,
for grants, or for providing free
services to everyone which con-
stitute the reason for heavy taxa-
tion." He said however that en-
couragement should be given
"any manifestation of initiative,
action, originality and the
assumption of personal
He pledged that "Every work-
ing citizen will be able to earn a
living with dignity and the State
will be able to look forward to
economic growth and augmented
aliya, the Zionist goal for whose
sake the State of Israel was
established and exists."
He conceded that reviving
economic growth will be difficult.
"Yet this is the true challenge.
Economic growth does not mean
only a growth in the national pro-
duct that enables a higher stan-
dard of living and reduced
dependence on foreign aid.
Economic growth signifies, first
of all, creating the conditions that
will allow us to fulfill the country's
Zionist goals and above all,
"THIS MEANS that we must
concentrate on those changes that
will permit new immigrants to live
and earn a living in this country.
We will have to struggle to cut
back on every non-essential
government expenditure.
We must place the emphasis on
a concrete effort to reduce the
burden of taxation a taxation
which hinders the emergence of
new places of employment for our
young people, for demobilized
soldiers, and for new
Shamir added that it was no
"exaggeration to term the
economic system which the
government will seek to forge a
'Zionist economy' an economy
that will not be based only on solid
economic principles but also on
the Zionist values which must be
our guide, and among them the
supreme value of settlement
throughout Eretz Yisrael. We will
not discriminate between one part
of the country and the other ..."
HE SAID, "We want to assure
the Arab residents of Judaea,
Samaria (West Bank) and the
Gaza district a life of dignity and a
life of peaceful co-existence with
their Jewish neighbors. It is our
aspiration that these Arab
residents will be able to run their
affairs by themselves. But the
necessary condition for this is ab-
solute severance from the various
terrorist organizations. The PLO
with its various branches poses
the danger to their future and
well-being and it is the obstacle to
a settlement and to peace."
He invited the Arabs of the ad-
ministered territories who reject
terrorism to enter into dialogue
with Israelis. He also promised
"to ensure Israeli Arabs their
rights and the advancement of
their living conditions." He ap-
pealed to Arab "public figures and
educators" in Israel "to exert
their influence in order to deepen
the affinity and loyalty of Israeli
Arabs toward the State" and to
serve as "a bridge between Israel
and its Arab neighbors. (to) ex-
pedite understanding and peace in
the region."
Shamir pledged that "The
government will continue in-
defatigably to create conditions
that will enable Israel and Jordan
to live in peace alongside each
other. But we will not be able to
attain this without free, direct,
face-to-face discussion. No inter-
national forum can serve as a
substitute for direct negotiations.
"IT IS ALSO perfectly clear
that peace and the terrorist
organizations cannot coexist, and
therefore we are following with
interest Jordan's trend to free
itself of any relationship with the
PLO," Shamir said. He expressed
regret that "despite efforts of the
government, with the assistance
of representatives of the United
States government, Jordan has
not yet responded to our call to
come to the negotiation table."
"The State of Israel has more
than once proved its sincere
desire for peace through the dif-
ficult and painful sacrifices made,
both in life and property, within
the framework of the various
agreements with its neighbors, up
to and including the peace treaty
with Egypt," Shamir said.
He said that although there are
disputes within the government
over tactics, "not over essence
and goals," there is "no point or
purpose in fanning the dispute
amongst ourselves so long as the
Arab side has not presented a pro-
posal that is acceptable to even
part of the government."
BUT SHAMIR stressed that
"We shall not sit idly by. The
government will continue to in-
itiate and seek ways to peace and
we shall not let the initiative fall
from our hands."
He said the government will
continue to adhere to the basic
guidelines continuing the peace
process, as agreed to at Camp
David. But within those
guidelines, "Israel will oppose the
establishment of an additional
Palestinian state in the Gaza
district and between Israel and
Jordan and will not negotiate with
the PLO."
Shamir hailed Israel's relations
with the U.S. which, he said,
reached an "unprecedented peak"
after President Reagan's 1983 en-
dorsement of strategic coopera-
tion between the two countries.
"President Reagan thus laid the
foundation for a very close
framework of cooperation which
has increasingly developed since,"
Shamir said.
"In the past two years, we con-
tinued to consolidate and foster
these important relations. Today
we have reached a situation when
Israel and the U.S. are allies in
many spheres, and formal expres-
sion should be given to this net-
work of relations. The govern-
ment will persist in developing
special relations with the U.S.,
our great friend, and will give this
topic high priority."
that there will be "a change of
heart on the part of the Eastern
bloc countries" toward Israel,
"first and foremost the USSR."
"Nonetheless," he said, "it is
our duty as a Jewish State to de-
mand of the Soviet government to
change its attitude toward our
people living in its territory and to
allow them to live as Jews, to
unite with their people and to im-
migrate to their homeland."
In his peroration, Shamir
declared: "From Jerusalem must
go forth a call to our people in all
parts of the diaspora: Come back
home, for Eretz Yisrael is your
place. We will receive you with
open arms in order to continue
marching together toward the
great and glorious chapter in the
history of our people: The chapter
of perfect redemption of the
Jewish people in its land."

Israel and Sale
Of Arms to Iran
For years now, Israel has insisted it is not
selling arms to Iran in its war against Iraq.
Now it appears that Israel's determined
repudiation of reports to the contrary may
be wrong and even dishonest after all, and
that the powers that be both in Jerusalem
and in Tel Aviv are stonewalling a very com-
plex conspiracy.
To complicate matters worse, Vice Presi-
dent George Bush may be involved. Four
Israelis are included among 17 defendants
awaiting their trial scheduled for late
November in U.S. District Court in
According to Paul Grand, who represents
middleman Sam Evans in the alleged con-
spiracy, Vice President Bush is mvolved
with some of the 17 defendants in active
debate over changing U.S. policy to begin
covert arms sales to Iran.
Grand says he has the taperecorded evidence to
show that Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger
and Marine Corps commandment Gen. P.X. Kelley,
among others, are also involved.
Wondering About Motives
It would be inconceivable that such highly-placed
government leaders, including as yet unnamed State
Department and Pentagon officials, would be able to
carry out this kind of an undercover operation
without the approval of President Reagan himself.
Nevertheless, it is charged by Grand that Vice
President Bush's aides met with the defendants in
West Germany to discuss an arms deal with the Ira-
nians. Grand further charges that Bush gave them
"the green light" there.
To complicate matters for Israel, it is Israel which is
mentioned as a major middleman whose role is to
"regularize" the arms flow from the U.S. to Iran.
We wonder why in the world either the United
States or Israel would each have it in its interest in-
dividually and in their mutual interest collectively to
favor Iran over Iraq. Of all of the Middle Eastern na-
tions, Iran is the most intractable, with its Islamic
fundamentalism turning that country back into a
medieval bastion of militant hatred for Western
civilization, including the religions and civilizations of
Judaism and Christianity as a whole.
U.S. Covering Tracks
This is not to be construed as a suggestion that
^modern" Irag makes that nation any more
"moderate" so far as the dominant value systems of
the Western world are concerned. After all, Iraq is a
Soviet client state.
So far as the United States is concerned, Grand in-
sists that his taped evidence names a thuafar uniden-
tified White House official who has declared that
there is "a secret tilt toward Iran after six years of
mutual hostility" within the Reagan Administration
about what this nation's policy toward the Iraq-Iran
war should be.
Who the White House official is, we have yet to
learn. What this explains about the reasons for our
nation's "tilt" is harder to imagine. But Israel's role
remains even more inexplicable. And possibly
therefore more damnable once the defense attorney's
evidence becomes part of the District Court's public
record. ;
Rotation on Road
Once again, Yitzhak Shamir is Prime
Minister of Israel. It happened almost as
easily as we suggested in these columns two
weeks ago it would happen. A virtually
predictable bitch a struggle over Cabinet
positions and outgoing Prime Minister
Shimon Peres' adamance about one of them
kept what was the certainty of rotation
for the Unity Government on tenter hooks
but a few days longer.
In his address to the Knesset on Monday,
Prime Minister Shamir insisted that there

would be little change in his rule from what
had occurred during Mr. Peres' tenure.
After all, why should there be? Mr. Peres
made monumental strides toward economic
stability and even some more modest ones
toward peace in the Middle East. What is
more, Mr. Peres achieved a level of world
leadership respect and even friendship for
him personally that Mr. Shamir may find dif-
ficult to emulate.
Tough Act To Follow
Part of this difficulty may stem from the
fact that Mr. Peres will be a difficult act for
anyone to follow. For Mr. Shamir this will be
especially true. He may anticipate little
change, but how otherwise is one to judge
his statement to the Knesset that "No inter-
national forum can serve as a substitute for
direct negotiations" between Israel and its
adversary Arab nations?
After all, Mr. Peres had several times
reiterated his readiness to accept such a
forum under the right circumstances. These,
of course, would include the Soviet return of
normal diplomatic relations to both nations
as a prerequisite to its role as an arbiter in
the Middle East peace process.
Does this mean that Mr. Shamir would
refuse even if the Soviets were to comply?
Then how could he, in the same address, ex-
press the hope that there must be "a change
of heart on the part of the Eastern bloc
countries" toward Israel, "first and
foremost the USSR"? Given the "change of
heart," would Mr. Shamir still say no after
Mr. Peres had already said yes?
Shamir's Hard Job
We must concede that Mr. Peres' two-
year tenure and his successes rest partly on
the cooperative spirit of the Likud Party and
Mr. Shamir in avoiding confrontations with
French Rightist
the outgoing Prime Minister's policies.
Without this forthcoming spirit, there would
have been a rupture in the Unity Govern-
ment, a Peres resignation and new national
elections, which Mr. Peres would most cer-
tainly have won hands down.
What there is now to hope for is that, once
again in the driver's seat, Mr. Shamir will
want the very same cooperation extended
toward him. In the end, this must mean a
Prime Minister's peace policy that the Labor
Party and Mr. Peres can accommodate
themselves to. In this sense, Mr. Shamir
surely meant in his address Monday that
there would be little change that his Unity
Government partners would find hard to ac-
cept without complaint.
But that would necessarily mean Likud ac-
ceptance of an international peace forum, in-
cluding the Soviet Union under the right
conditions. Otherwise, what we have once
again is a Likud Party and a Likud Prime
Minister whom other world leaders consider
intractable from the start.
LePen's Impressive Gains This Year
Friday, October 24,1986
Volume 8
21 TISHRI 6747
Number 34
Jean-Marie Le Pen and his
National Front made im-
pressive gains in the French
elections earlier this year,
riding a wave of xenophobia
inspired by such slogans as
"France for the French"
and "Two million im-
migrants eauals two million
For the first time since its foun-
ding in Paris in 1972, the National
Front, which used to fight its bat-
tles as a fringe group in the
streets, has become an important
political force in France. By winn-
ing 10 percent of the popular vote
in France's legislative elections in
March and a resulting 35 seats in
the 577 seat National Assembly,
over-all the party emerged with
more support in key cities than
polls had predicted.
WHY 18 the National Front
becoming popular? Mainly
because it has objected to the
presence in France of large
numbers of immigrants many
from Algeria, Morocco and other
parts of North Africa who, it
contends, cause unemployment,
taking away jobs from the French.
But there is another more wor-
risome side to the National Front
Its opponents, with good reason,
have called the party racist,
fascist and anti-Semitic. Party
publications have expressed racist
and anti-Semitic viewpoints and
some National Front leaders have
Nazi or neo-Nazi connections.
Since its establishment in 1981,
the National Front's daily
newspaper, Present, edited by
Francois Brigneau and Bernard
Antony (a.k.a. Romain Marie), has
become a major organ in France
Alison B. Carb is a member

Department of the Anti-
Defamation League Civil
Rights Division.
for publishing anti-Semitic
For example, Present contends
that too many Jews hold key posts
in 'government and administra-
tion, not only in France but in the
world. Romain Marie, Le Pen's
right-hand man and one of 10
members of the National Front
elected to the European Parlia-
ment, has claimed that the leader-
ship of the Russian Revolution
was an "international (sic) of
assassins that was composed
essentially of Jews."
HE ARGUES that there are
"powers in France" for which
"the interests of Judaism are
more important than those of
French society."
Present also criticized France's
Mitterrand government, singling
out Jewish ministers such as
Minister of Justice Robert
In 1983, Present editor Francois
Brigneau denounced Badinter's
alleged laxity toward criminals
and charged that he supported
"the nomad against the settler,
the cosmopolitan against the in-
digenous ... the outcast against a
society which has for so long done
without Badinter and his tribe
(emphasis added), the murderer
against the murdered."
He added: "The only thing
French about such men is where
they live. When we stop and con-
sider how far they have taken con-
trol of this country then it is in-
deed time for us to be afraid."
IN 1975, Simone Veil, a sur-
vivor of Auschwitz, who, as
Health Minister under the Giscard
administration introduced a law in
parliament legalizing abortion,
was attacked in the National
Front-connected publications, Le
National and Militant. Since
then, Le Pen has continued his at-
tacks on Veil.
It is noteworthy that Mark
Frederiksen, a National Front
candidate in the 1978 elections,
headed the French neo-Nazi group
which in 1980 claimed respon-
sibility for the Rue Copernic
synagogue bombing in Paris, in
which four persons were killed
and a dozen injured.
A number of those who profess
to deny the Holocaust have also
been linked to the National Front.
For example, Eric Delcroix, a Na-
tional Front candidate in the 1977
elections, who was the lawyer for
Robert Faurisson, the French pro-
fessor convicted of libel and pro-
moting racism because of his book
denying the facts of the
Holocaust. Delcroix has been
published in the Journal of
Historical Review, the publication
of the Institute of Historical
Review, the leading Holocuast
denial propaganda group in the
U.S. The pseudo-academic in-
stitute was founded by Willis Car-
to, who heads the extremist Liber-
ty Lobby.
ALTHOUGH Le Pen has at-
tempted to make himself look
respectable during the past few
years while campaigning for elec-
tion, he has continued to make
comments viewed at the very
least as insensitive by the Jewish

Stroessner Orders
End To Outbursts
Paraguay's strongman,
Gen. Alfredo Stroessner,
has ordered an end to a
wave of anti-Semitic out-
bursts which had swept his
country in recent weeks, the
World Jeiwsh Congress
"There is not, nor will there be
anti-Semitism in Paraguay," the
General stated in a letter to WJC
president Edgar Bronfman.
Stroessner's letter was in reply to
a cable from Bronfman on Sept.
12, which asked the General to in-
tervene and put a halt to the anti-
Semitic wave which had left the
Jewish community of Paraguay
"living in a state of alarm."
On Sept. 10, posters appeared
throughout Asuncion, capital of
Paraguay, calling on the popula-
tion not to patronize shops owned
by Jews because "they rob the
country and send the money to Tel
Aviv and Moscow." The posters
listed 20 shops with the names of
their Jewish owners.
"Wanted: Jews. Dead or alive for
killing Christ, for establishing the
Communist Party, for causing
two world wars, for bombing Li-
byan and killing children, for plan-
ning three world wan."
In his cable, Bronfman asked
that Stroessner act to "ensure the
Jewish community of Paraguay of
that safety they so direly need in
view of "the general manifesta-
tion of terrorism" against Jews
and particularly "in the aftermath
of the anti-Jewish terrorist attack
in Turkey."
Stroessner, in his reply to
Bronfman, stated he was the
"first to condemn" the ap-
pearance of anti-Jewish posters.
"Before receiving your message I
had already given instructions to
the competent national
authorities to intervene with
every energy in defense to the
Jewish community, as a means of
avoiding any misconduct on the
part of people interested in harm-
ing the prestige of our country.
"In my fatherland, all persons
are respected, whatever their na-
tionalities. This is why we will not
allow irresponsible people to
throw a shadow over the well-
deserved prestige of my country."

On Twelve-Day U.S. Visit
For the first time in the
history of the Soviet Union,

of Religious Affairs of the
USSR a post equivalent
to that of Minister of

United States, it was an-
nounced here.
The announcement was made
by Rabbi Arthur Schneier, presi-

Foundation, at a dinner in the
Pierre Hotel honoring Milton and
Carroll Petrie and Vernon
Walters. Ambassador of the
United States to the United
official Constantine Karchev
was to arrive in the United States
on Sunday for a 12-day stay as the
guest of the Appeal of Conscience

Sen. Arlen Specter (R., Pa.) has
introduced a similar bill in the
Senate. But because of Reagan
Administration opposition, there
is little chance it will be adopted
before Congress adjourns for the
election campaigns, according to a
spokesperson for the Senate.
The spokesperon said the Ad-
ministration believes these crimes
should be dealt with by state and
local governments and not the
federal government.
Glickman said the bill is aimed
at deterring a small minority in
this country "who see fit to van-
dalize and destroy religious pro-
perty and in turn to jeopardize the
freedoms of others to safely prac-
tice their religious beliefs.
He said while the majority of
these acts have been motivated by
anti-Semitism, "this problem is by
no means limited to the Jewish
faith. The entire range of faiths,
including Baptists, Catholics and
Episcopal, have been the targets
of such attacks." Glickman added
that an effort must be made to
"eliminate both the root of the
problem and the symptoms."
Panel Probing War Criminals
Given Six-Week Extension
Deschenes commission in-
vestigating Nazi war criminals liv-
ing in Canada has received a six-
week extension. Commission co-
counsel Yves Fortier said its
"report is 95 percent finished."
The extension was granted to
allow suspected war criminals
named in the report time to ex-
amine the evidence against them.
This is required by the Inquiries
Act under which the one-man
commission, headed by Quebec i
Superior Court Judge Jules
Deschenes was created in
February, 1985.
The commission was mandated
to determine whether Nazi war
criminal8 are in Canada, how they
got here, how many of them are
there and what can be done to br-
ing them to justice. The deadline
for its report, originally

"who has served his country with

representatives of Catholic, Greek

lay and religious leaders. "He will
observe at first-hand the diversity
of American religious life."

Schneier, who is also the spiritual

Synagogue, told the 600 guests,
"We are hopeful that Mr. Kar-

lead to an expansion of contacts
between religious communities in

Schneier reported that the Ap-
peal of Conscience Foundation
had established "close and friend-
ly relations" with the Academy of
Social Sciences of the People's
Republic of China and that a
series of exchanges had already
taken place, with additional visits
expected. In 1985 two Chinese
scholars spent a year at American
universities and theological
seminaries under the Founda-
tion's auspices to study American
religious life and thought.
"So positive were these ex-
periences that further religious
exchange agreements were reach-
ed/' Schneier said, noting: "The
Chinese Academy of Social
Sciences has accepted our invita-
tion to Prof. Gao Wangzhi,
China's leading authority on
Christianity and Judaism, to study
in the United States beginning
early next year."
authorities have agreed to par-
ticipate in a conference of Chinese
and American scholars on religion
and society to be convened by the

periodicals will be exchanged by
the Foundation and the Academy
as well."
Survey: The Placement
Of Women Rabbis
Five of the 20 women or-
dained as Conservative,
Reform and Reconstruc-
tionist rabbis last May and
June have been placed as
assistant rabbis, and four
have been named as solo
rabbis, according to the an-
nual Jewish Telegraphic
Agency survey of such
Solo rabbis is a term indicating
that a synagogue is too small to
either need or be able to afford
more than one rabbi.
The 20 brings to 130 the number
of women ordained as rabbis since
the practice of ordination of
women began in 1972.
The JTA was also informed that
two of the new women rabbis have
returned to study to earn advanc-
ed degrees and that several have
taken administrative posts in both
Jewish and general agencies.
THE ONLY woman to have
received ordination as a Conser-
vative rabbi last June, Nina Feins-
tein, has returned to her native ci-
ty, Dallas, apparently without
seeking placement. A spokesper-
son told the JTA that the plans of
Feinstein were not known. Feins-
tein is the second woman to be or-
dained as a Conservative rabbi.
Seven women were graduated
as Reconstructionist rabbis.
Among them is Avis Miller of
Pawtucket, R.I., named assistant
rabbi of Adath Israel Congrega-
tion, a Conservative congregation
in Washington. She was described
as the first woman to serve in that
Sheila Weinberg of New York
has been named rabbi of Beth Am
Shalom, a Conservative congrega-
tion in Penn Valley, Pa. She is the
first woman to serve that con-
gregation. She is a solo rabbi.
Sue Levy of Abington, Pa. has
been named rabbi of Beth Shalom,
a Conservative synagogue in
Dover, Del. This also is a solo
pulpit. Judy Gary of Richmond,
Va. is engaged in full-time study
for a doctorate in Jewish
philosophy at Temple University.
LAUREN LEVY of Plainsboro,
N.J. has been named program
director at the Hillel of Rutgers
University. Joan Sacks has
returned to Philadelphia to be
with her husband while she plans
her next steps as a rabbi. Gail
Glicksman of Yaedon, Pa. has
been appointed to a position in the
health professions division of the
University of Pennsylvania.
Five of the Reform women rab-
bis were named to posts as assis-
tant rabbis. They are Shira

received an appointment as a U.S.
Navy chaplain, with the rank of
lieutenant, junior grade, in San
Francisco. Eve Ben-Ora, of Min-
neapolis, has been named director
of education and programming at

Ruth Langer of Pittsburgh did
not accept a pulpit appointment
because she married Dr. Jonathan
Sarna, a member of the faculty of
the Hebrew Union College-Jewish
Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR),
where she had been ordained a
Reform rabbi. Sarna is on a sab-
batical in Israel. Langer is study-

Ephraim Katzir Elected
President Of ORT Union
Ephraim Katzir, former President
of the State of Israel and chair-
man of Israel's Region 2000 hi-
tech development project, was
elected president of the World
ORT Union Sept 22 at the World

Delegates from ORT organiza-
tions in 27 countries attended the
Congress, held once every six
years to determine future direc-
tions for the high technology
training and Jewish education at
ORT schools and training centers
throughout the ORT global
In his acceptance speech, Katzir
noted: "Brainpower is, and
always has been, the most plen-
tiful natural resource of the
Jewish people. The aim of ORT,
throughout its 106-year history,
has been to nurture this resource,
and train people to meet the
challenge of the working world.
"By providing Jews with the
means to learn technical skills and
upgrade their own lives, ORT en-
sures the continuity and viability
of the Jewish people. As presi-
dent, I will work to continue this
fine tradition which was begun
over a century ago."
Katzir'8 first official visit to the
United States on behalf of ORT
will be as guest speaker at the

Minister of Israel and Minister of
Education and Culture; and Ted-
dy Kollek, Mayor of Jerusalem.

Is Bonn Making Royalties on Nazi Films?
It all boils down to this:
The West German govern-
ment is making royalties
off of Nazi films and some
American film makers are
mad as hell. Josh Waletzky
and Aviva Kempner, the
director and producer of
"Partisans of Vilna," the
first American film soley
devoted to documenting
Jewish heroism during the
Holocaust, want to put
their ire on record.
"The Germans made us pay
them money," Kempner ex-
plains, "and it simply disgusted
me. Imagine, I actually had to
pay a fee to use footage of the
Nazis to the same country
responsible for these
INITIALLY, the claim seems
almost unbelievable. Several
critics would question the
morality of the German govern-
ment making any sort of profit
off the darkest period in their
history. In any case, documen-
tary film producers have rarely
had to pay any fees for footage
they obtain from archives. The
National Archives in
Washington, D.C., for example,
has a no-charge policy. Ap-
parently, though, Miss Kemp-
ner's assertion is correct.
Correspondence between
Kempner and Transit Films, a
German-based company that
describes itself as "acting in the
name of the German state," con-
firms a licence fee of DM 20
($10) was charged for every
meter of film incorporated into
the documentary.
"Partisans of Vilna," which
was created with a $600,000
budget, has only two minutes
and seven seconds of crucial
Third Reich documentary
footage. Kempner and Waletzky

clude more than that
WHAT MAKES all this even
more interesting is that the
Scene from 'Partisans of Vilna' was created
with a $600,000 budget and has only two
minutes and seven seconds of crucial Third
Reich documentary footage. That is all the
producers were able to afford.

will charge fees for footage.

Service in New York City.
footage used did not actually
come from Germany. The film
makers found their material in
the National Archives the
same institution with a no
charge policy.
Here is why Nazi films are an
exception to the rule: During the
Second World War, the United
States army confiscated several
reels of Nazi films and stored
them in the Archives. In the
1960s, when the United States
allied with West Germany, the
American government was
divested by law of retaining the
films. Because of the historical
significance of what had been
captured on film, a request was
made to the West German
Government that copies of the
film be kept in the National
Transit Films, which attained
copyrigth authority over all
documentaries and newsreels of
the Nazi era until May 8, 1945,
agreed. Their condition,
however, was that all film
makers using the Archive
footage would pay a royalty or
"licence fee" to Transit Films.
The funds, according to a Tran-
sit spokeman, would go to
"promoting films in Germany."
The office of the German Con-
sulate General flatly denies that
Transit Films is a "government
institution" or a "branch of the
government." Bemd Moranz,
press secretary for the Con-
sulate General, would not go as
far as denying that Transit Film
was a "representative" of the
German government. That, he
claims, is open to interpretation.
ner's written protest over the
German Government's using
Nazi films as a money
generating device "for the
state," a Transit spokesperson
wrote, "I cannot say that I
disagree, but I hope you will
understand that it is the order of
the company to control the pur-
pose and do the exploitation
herefore. We do not like it that
anybody can use the material,
perhaps in order to create pro-
paganda. Besides, we have the
possibility to charge fees with it,
which we naturally will do."
Despite it all, Kempner and
Waletzky seemed satisfied with
their final product, which took
them five years to piece
together. If the international
critics have any credibility, than
they ought to well be proud.
They drew absolute raves from
Europe, even in Berlin where
the film was screened at that
city's annual film festival. So, if
the film "makes" it in the United
States, will the two be ready to
put their troubles behind them?
"Well," Waletzky says, "there
was that situation with the
"What situation is that?" I
plain, "We went to the Soviet
embassy so that we could film
within Vilna, where this entire
history takes place. We told
them that we wanted to make a
film about the Jewish partisans
who battled the Germans. They
looked at us and said, "It is only
about Jews?" When we confirm-
ed that, they told us that our film
was too narrow-minded and
refused us permission to film
within Vilna."
How then, did they get
modern footage of Vilna?
Kempner answers very matter
of factly, "Oh, we had some of
the old Partisans visit Vilna, and
they sneaked 8-millimeter
cameras into their jackets and
photographed the town for us."
But that is another story.
Decision To Bring War Criminals
To Trial Was Not Unanimous
To some extent, the trials were
a spectacle.' Telford Taylor
The Nuremberg trials were
part of a larger effort to
assure a lasting peace
following World War II, ac-
cording to Telford Taylor,
Herman George and Kate
Kaiser Professor of Con-
stitutional Law at Yeshiva
University's Benjamin N.
Cardozo School or Law.
Forty years later, Prof. Taylor,
who was chief U.S. prosecutor at
Nuremberg, feels that "the in-
fluence of Nuremberg as a peace-
keeping effort has been good
rather than bad."
the same San Francisco con-
ference which established the
United Nations also established
the International Tribune for the
Trial of War Criminals.
"It was hoped," said Taylor,
"that (the Nuremberg trials),
along with the United Nations,
would be engines for keeping of
peace in the future."
Indeed, the charges leveled at
the trials included not only
. atrocities against civilian popula-
tions, but also the newly-defined
international crime of "waging
aggressive war."
THE DECISION to bring Ger-
man war criminals to trial was by
no means unanimous among the
Allies, Taylor said. The British,
according to Prof. Taylor, favored
drawign up a list of Germans to be
summarily executed without trial.
The problems with such an ap-
proach, he said, was not only its
repugnance to Western legal
tradition but the difficulty of
deciding whom to name.
The decision to conduct trials
"was the only rational choice," ac-
cording to Taylor. Such an ap-
proach allowed for investigation
of the facts and examination of
the evidence. Decisions concern-
ing which individuals to prosecute
could be left to the prosecutors,
who enjoyed the same pro-
secutorial discretion as "any U.S.

"brought home to the public the
content of those documents in a
way that could never have been

opportunity for explanation and
rebuttal. And the very existence

Grenade Attack
Bloodiest in Jerusalem Since '84
A grenade attack on Israeli
soldiers and their families in
the Old City Wednesday
evening (Oct. 15) killed one
person and wounded 69 in
the bloodiest terrorist foray
in Jerusalem in more than
two years.
The fatality, Dov Porat, 46, was
buried in Holon Thursday (Oct.
16). He was one of hundreds of
parents and relatives who had just
attended the swearing-in of 300
Israel Defense Force recruits of
the elite Givati Brigade at the
Western Wall, a short distance
from the scene of the carnage.
As of last Thursday noon, 34 of
the wounded were still hospitaliz-
ed. One was described in serious
condition, and seven others were
reported to have suffered
"medium" wounds.
POLICE AND border police de-
tained 18 Arab suspects for ques-
tioning and a curfew was clamped
on the Old City. But the search for
the terrorists spread to the West
Bank where the Jordan River
bridges were closed to block a
possible escape route for the
killers. Chief of Staff Gen. Moshe
Levy ordered an immediate in-
quiry into the circumstances of
the attack.
It occurred at 8:20 p.m. local
time, as the young IDF soldiers,
having just taken their oath and
been presented with rifles and
Bibles, were strolling with their
families to a parking lot at the
Dung Gate to board buses and
private cars for home.
According to police, three
Soviet-made F-l grenades were
hurles at them from ambush by
two men who escaped in a car
driven by a third. Within moments
the place was "a bloody hell," one
eyewitness said. Dozens of wound-
ed lay on the pavement crying for
Palestine Liberation Organization
claimed responsibility for the
assault in an announcement from
its office in Cairo. But two other
terrorist gangs also boasted of
responsibility for attacking armed
IDF soldiers. They are the Marx-
ist Democratic Front for the
Liberation of Palestine headed by
Naif Hawatmeh and a hitherto
unknown group calling itself the
Islamic Jihad Legion.
ADL Condemns Malaysia
For New Anti-Semitism
NEW YORK-The Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith has condemned
Malaysia for the latest inci-
dent of its "state sponsored
anti-Semitism" tne expul-
sion of two reporters for the
Asian Wall Street Journal
and the banning of the
Malaysian Prime Minister
Mahathir Mohamad, who is cur-
rently in New York for the United
Nations General Assembly
meeting, charged the newspaper
is "controlled by Jews" and is in-
volved in a "Zionist plot" to top-
ple his government.
Abraham H. Foxman, ADL's
associate national director and
head of its international Affairs
Division, called on the interna-
tional community, "particularly
those nations with close political
or economic ties with Malaysia, to
speak out against this outrage."
here, Foxman cited a pattern of
Malaysian anti-Semitism. He
pointed out that last spring Malay-
sian authorities responded to
press criticism of corruption in the
country by blaming "international
Jewish media."
In late 1984, he went on, the
New York Philharmonic Or-
chestra canceled a visit after

In addition, Foxman said,

United Nations has been con-
sistently anti-American as well as
anti-Israel and in 1984 Malaysia

chief Yasir Arafat. He pointed out
that the nation's caital, Kuala

and Libya, as well as the PLO.

Such claims from different
quarters are commonplace after
terrorist and are seen as attempts
to enhance the status of com-
peting terrorist organizations and
to confuse the authorities. In this
case there is some confusion over
the nature of the attack.
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, who was on the scene last
Wednesday night, said he doubted
the attackers were aiming
specifically at the soldiers "PLO
terrorists try to hit us anywhere,
at any time, and any target will
do," he said.
GEN. (RES.) Rehavam Zeevi, a
former adviser on terrorism to the
Prime Minister, said on a radio in-
terview last Thursday that if
Rabin's assessment is based on in-
formation, he had nothing to add.
But if the Defense Minister was
merely speculating, "one should
take into account the worst
possibility, that is that the ter-
rorists deliberately selected a
military target. If so, they showed
a greater degree of chutzpah (ef-
frontery) and courage" than in the
past, Zeevi said.
The inquiry ordered by the
Chief of Staff will try to deter-
mine whether the swearing-in
ceremony for the recruits, con-
ducted under brilliant spotlights
at the Western Wall, had been
adequately protected and if pro-
per security measures were taken,
inasmuch as many civilians were
at the ceremonies.
Zeevi called for a more intensive
war on terrorists. He said it
should be continuous, employing
whatever measures are necessary
and should not ebb and flow along
with the incidence of terrorist
acts. He urged capital punishment
for convicted terrorists.
The grenade attack also had
repercussions on Israel's relations
with Egypt, which have warmed
considerably of late since Egypt
returned its Ambassador to Tel
Aviv. The fact that the PLO an-
nouncement claiming responsibili-
ty emanated from Cairo triggered
angry reactions among Israelis.
Mohammad Bassiouny, was sum-
moned to the Foreign Ministry
last Thursday and handed a for-
mal letter of protest to his govern-
ment. It said the Cairo announce-
ment was contrary to "the new
spirit" in relations between the
two countries. One Knesset
member, Haim Druckman of the
National Religious Party, urged
Israel to demand that the Egyp-
tians close down the PLO office in
their capital.
The tragedy was personalized in
the exprerience of one recruit,
Omer Porat, 18, whose father was
fatally wounded. His mother,
Naomi, 48, and his sister, Liat, 21,
were also among the casualties.
Hit by grenade fragments, they
fell bleeding at his feet.
The young soldier, also wound-
ed, administered first aid to his
mother and sister and then went
in search of his father, who had
disappeared in the confusion. He
found him at the entrace of the
parking lot, bleeding profusely
while an officer attempted to
revive him.
"HE (his father) was losing a lot
of blood from his chest," Omer
told reporters at his hospital bed.
"He was breathing heavily."
After bandaging his father's
wound he accompanied him in an
ambulance to the hospital. There
doctors tried to save his life, but in
vain. "He died in my arms," Omer
The previous worst terrorist at-
tack in Jerusalem occurred in
April, 1984 when a Palestinian
gunned down 48 persons in a
downtown street, killing one and
wounding the rest.

1984, Le Pen stated: "I am accus-

This is a disinformation maneuver
by the Communist press." Le Pen
alleged that charges of his anti-
Semitism stemmed from "intellec-
tual terrorism." To prove that he
was not an anti-Semite, he
asserted, did not mean he had "to
love the Veil law, the paintings of
Chagall and the politics of
Mendes-France." (The late Pierre
Mendes-France, a Jew, was a
French Prime Minister.)
Le Pen said that Mendes-
France inspired in him a
"patriotic and almost physical
repulsion." Perhaps realizing the
racist ring to this, he quickly ex-
plained that his objections to the

tional Front number in the Na-

close to the limit of SO deputies
necessary to maintain a separate
parliamentary group. Whatever
the outcome, the actions of the
National Front and its leader bear
close watching.
BUT REAGAN emphasised in
his nationally-televised speech
from his White House office Mon-
day night (Oct. 13) that he had
told Gorbachev, as he had when
the two first met in Geneva last
year, that the United States will
judge Soviet action on human
rights not just words.
"I made it plain that the United
States would not seek to exploit
improvement in these matters for
purposes of propaganda," Reagan
said in his Oval Office television
"But I also made it plain, once
again, that an improvement of the
human condition within the Soviet
Union is indispensable for an im-
provement in bilateral relations
with the United States."
Reagan said he told Gorbachev,
"again in Reykjavik as I had in
Geneva, we Americans place far
less weight upon the words that
are spoken at meetings such as
these than upon the deeds that
follow. When it comes to human
rights and judging Soviet inten-
tions, we are all from Missouri:
you have got to show us."
specifically mention Soviet Jewry,
Shultz did in response to a ques-
tion on human rights at his brief-
ing in Reykjavik after the Reagan-
Gorbachev talks ended.
"The issue of human rights was
brought up on a number of occa-
sions and some very significant
material was passed to the Soviet
Union, which they accepted,"
Shultz said. He said this material
"stated not only our views, but in
detail things about Jewish emigra-
tion, the number of people who
have signified their desire to
leave, lists of people and things of
that land."
The National Conference on
Soviet Jewry had provided Shultz
with charts on Jewish emigration,
which totaled only 126 in
September and 667 for the first
nine months of 1986, as well as a
list of Jewish Prisners of Cons-
cience and the names of 11,000 of
the estimated 400,000 refuseniks.
might have been a statement on
human rights if the arms agree-
ment had not collapsed at the last
minute. "And in what might have
been a statement coming out of
the meeting dealing with this
issue, the subject is explicitly
referred to," he said.
"Perhaps at some point there is
a prospect of setting up some kind
of systematic basis for discussing
it. But of course that remains to
be seen."
Jewish activists and families
of refuseniks from a half
dozen countries pleaded the
cause of Soviet Jewry at the
summit meeting here bet-
ween President Reagan and
Soviet Leader Mikhail Gor-
bachev, Oct. 11-12.
They prayerd in public and
demonstrated peacefully, joined
by Icelandic sympathizers and
others. Some activists erected a
symbolic cage outside the Hofti
House where the two leaders held
their final meeting Sunday (Oct.
THE SOVIETS, for their part,
seemed to offer a slight ray of
hope that restrictions on Jewish
emigration from the USSR might
possibly be eased in the future.
One Soviet spokesman told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
"things are changing" and hinted
that the authorities may be more
accommodating in the future.
A member of the Soviet delega-
tion, Samuel Zivs, who came here
to deal with "the Jewish issue,"
met several refusenik families
whom he asked for details of their
relatives' cases and promised to
facilitate their departure.
The line taken by official Soviet
spokesmen was that while the
USSR refuses to let "foreign
countries meddle in its internal af-
fairs," it is now prepared to study
some of the issues raised by Soviet
Jews on a case-by-caee basis "out
of humanitarian considerations."
THE SOVIETS said that

American delegation with which

In private conversations before
leaving Reykjavik, Soviet officials
claimed that had the talks suc-
ceeded, a compromise solution on
humanitarian issues would have
been reached. "All this is a pity,"
one Soviet spokesman said of the
summit's failure.
BUT THE Jewish leaders and
others who had converged on the
Icelandic capital days before the
start of the summit meetings,
achieved their objective of bring-
ing the plight of Soviet Jewry to
the attention of the super power
leaders while international atten-
tion was focused on them.
American Jews were
represented here by delegations
from the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry (NCSJ), headed by
its chairman, Morris Abram, and
the Union of Councils for Soviet
Jewry. David Wakesberg of San
Francisco, a UCSJ vice president,
summarized their purpose when
he said, "We will be presenting
cases to the media and delegations
and try to insist that Soviet Jews
are not forgotten."
Two Knesset members, Nava
Arad of Labor and Uzi Landau of
Likud, were part of an Israeli
delegation that included relatives
of prominent refuseniks. They
met with the President of the
Icelandic Parliament, Thorvakdur
Gardar Kristjansson, who ex-
pressed support for the cause of
Soviet Jewry.
ARAD ALSO met with women
members of Parliament whom she
asked to take up the cause of "the
mothers of the prisoners" in the
USSR and to intercede on their
Especially poignant was the
case of Michael Shirraan, an im-
migrant to Israel from the Soviet
Union who is suffering from bone
cancer and needs a marrow
transplant which only bis sister,
Inessa Flerova, can supply.
Flerova has been unable to leave
for Israel because an exit visa has
been denied her husband, Victor
Flerov, to accompany her.
Shirman camped outside the
summit meeting hall for two days,
sometimes in heavy rain, carrying
a poster "to remind President
Reagan that he is meeting the
man (Gorbachev) who is murder-
ing me."
(The Flerovs have since been
granted a visa to go to Israel so
that she may give her brother
bone marrow cells for transplant.
The operation is scheduled for

ON FRIDAY night (Oct. 10),
two Jewish students from Britain
spent the entire night outside the
Saga Hotel which housed the
Soviet delegation, intoning
prayers and reciting the names of
11,000 refuseniks. Other
demonstrators held up
photographs of long-time
refuseniks. They attended Soviet
press briefings with posters urg-
ing the Kremlin leadershp to
"prove it has changed by allowing
Jews to emigrate."
Jewish prayer servies were led
by Yoeef Mendelevich who im-
migrated to Israel from the Soviet
Union in 1981. He wae joined by
an Israeli rabbi, Benjamin
Lehman, who noted that custom
dictated that in times of crisis,
Jews pray in public.
Police refused to permit the ser-
vice outside the hotel. The group
gathered outside the press center,
about 160 yards away. Icelandic
sympathizers sang with them,
"Pray for the peace of
Jerusalem." The Jews sang
Hatikva, Israel's national anthem.
Ministry spokesman told the JTA,

Soviets Let 2 Jewish
Families Leave Country
In two surprise moves last
week, Soviet authorities
allowed a prominent Jewish
scientist and his wife and
the family of a cancer victim
who is now living in Israel to
leave the Soviet Union.
David Goldfarb and his wife,
Cecilia, were given permission to
leave last Wednesday (Oct. 15).
Two days later, the entire family

Michael Shirman, 31, is a
leukemia patient living in Israel
whose sole chance of survival
rests on a possible bone-marrow
transplant from his sister, his only
sibling, who lives in Moscow. The
information about the Flerov
family was confirmed by the U.S.
State Department.
Inessa Flerova and her two
daughters, Dariya, 7, and
Mariana, 5, were granted exit
visas at the end of August, but
Soviet officials would not allow
them to leave with Viktor, citing
his father's refusal to grant him a
waiver of financial obligation.
Shirman had told Flerova not to
leave without her husband,
thereby separating the family on
his account. Viktor Flerov and his
father had had little contact, if
any, in years.
Flerova first applied for a tem-
porary visa last February, and
was repeatedly given conflicting
advice about emigration visas by
Soviet officials. Both Inessa and
Viktor went on hunger strikes to
protest against the official
United States last week for two
days following a visit to Iceland
during the summit meeting bet-
ween President Reagan and
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev,
where he pleaded his case with
American and Soviet officials.
Last Thursday, he told a press
conference on Capitol Hill that he
has been given about a month to
live unless he receives the
In a dramatic development im-
mediately preceding a press con-
ference in the Lincoln Square
Synagogue in New York, Shirman
received a phone call from the
wife of Dr. Kenneth Prager, a
Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital
cardiopulmonary physician, who
is attending to both Shirman and
Goldfarb, telling Shirman that his
wife, Anka, had called from Israel
with news that Flerova had called
her from Moscow.
Shirman immediately called
Anka, and she said she understood
that the entire Flerov family had
received permission to emigrate
to Israel.
SHIRMAN SAID his wife was
hesitant to confirm the conversa-
tion because she doesn't speak
Russian and that the language
problem may have created a
misunderstanding. But after
answering a series of questions
from the press, Shirman called his
sister in Moscow and confirmed
the news.
If all went well, the Flerovs
would be airborne some time this
week, he said. But some news
reports from Moscow noted that it
might take up to two weeks for
them to leave. Lynn Singer, direc-
tor of the Long Island Committee

president of the Union of Councils

is building a modem 180-bed
hospital in Kinshasa, Zaire, it was
announced jointly last week by the
United States Agency for Interna-
tional Development and
AID administrator M. Peter
McPherson and Hadassah presi-
dent Ruth Popkin announced that
the hospital will serve 160,000
residents. The facility is under
construction on the site of a small
hospital run by the KimbanguiBt
Church, a Christian sect The
original hospital was founded in
1973 and was the first to be built
in Zaire since the nation achieved
independence in 1960.
THE NEW hospital is a joint
project of AID, the Hadassah
Medical Organization, the Kim-
banguist Church and the govern-
ments of Israel and Zaire. A |1.5
million AID grant signed last
week will complete construction
and the equipping of the hospital.
The International Cooperation
Department of the Israel Foreign
Ministry will pay expenses of
volunteer Hadassah Medical
Organization personnel from
Israel who will work with the
hospital's Zairian staff.
Popkin noted that Hadassah has
conducted cooperative medical
programs in Africa for almost
three decades and said, "Our
work in Zaire is part of the
Hadassah tradition of concern for
the quality of life of every human
being on this planet"
The Hadassah Medical Center
has conducted medical programs
primarily in eye care in
several African nations since
1959. The Center also trains
public health doctors, nurses and
paramedical personnel from a
number of countries on the

Shirman has been able to main-
tain a level and sometimes cheer-
ful mood during his medical crisis.
But he underlined that his
leukemia is in the final stage and
told reporters that he might have
had a better chance of recovery if
the Soviets had not procrastinated
about allowing the entire Flerov
family to leave last February. He
is given only a 30 percent chance
of survival now even with the
bone-marrow transplant. He has
been receiving daily Mood tests,
and chemotherapy administered
by Dr. Prager, during his stay
here. Prager has taken a personal
interest in this case as well as that
of Goldfarb.
American industrialist who played
a role in the release of Goldfarb,
was asked if he was also involved
in the Flerov case. He told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency: "This
is part of the- same goodwill
gesture shown by the Soviets with
the Goldfarb release. I brought it
to the attention of the Soviets
when I heard from Dr. Prager
some time ago." Prager wrote to
Hammer in August, detailing
Shirman's condition and the
plight of die Flerov family.
In that letter, Prager asked that
Hammer, during his trip to the
USSR last month, intervene "as
forcefully as possible" and "as
soon as possible" to convince the
Soviets that allowing the Flerovs
to leave would be the "humane
thing to do."
UCSJ President Pam Cohen, in
a statement, said: "While we are
grateful by the decision (to let the
Flerov family emigrate), the
members and Board of the UCSJ
remain profoundly disturbed by
the Soviet Union's continued
refusal to allow emigration for the
estimated 400,000 Soviet Jews
who wish to do so. We see no
reason why the Soviet govern-
ment continues to delay in these
matters, and we urge Soviet
authorities to expedite emigration
procedures for all Soviet Jewish
citizens who wish to go."

In Stable Condition, His N.Y. Doctors Report

that ailing former Soviet

Silvestrini said.
THE PAPAL invitations were
divided between "Christians" and
"non-Christians," but Jews were
included on the Christians list
because, Silvestrini explained, of
the "special bond" Christians feel
they have with Jews and because
of historical reasons dating back
to the 1965 Second Ecumenical
Council (Vatican II) when the Of-
fice for Religious Relations with
Jews was incorporated into the
Secretariat for Promoting Chris-
tian Unity.
The non-Christian faiths invited
include Hindu, Buddhist, Islam,
Shinto, Zoroastriani8m and the
"traditional religions" of
American Indians and Africans.

solely by nations not at war, such
as Pakistan, Turkey, Egypt,
Morocco, Bangladesh and Ivory

and Iraq, which are at war with

peace," Silvestrini said.

THE PILOT was literally
scooped off the ground in a daring
helicopter rescue Thursday, 90
minutes after he parachuted safe-
ly in an area east of the port city
of Sidon controlled by terrorist
groups. Outgoing Premier
Shimon Peres said at Sunday's
Cabinet meeting that the rescue
was the most brilliant and
courageous act possible in the cir-
cumstances. He said it proved the
resourcefulness of the Israel
Defense Force and the Air Force.
Jews Safe In
El Salvador
Members of the small Jewish com-
munity of El Salvador escaped in-
jury in the massive earthquake
and even managed to hold Yom
Kippur services, according to in-
formation received by Rabbi Mor-
ton Roaenthal, Latin American
Affairs director of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
He said, however, that ADL
was advised by Jean-Claude Kahn,
president of the Jewish communi-
ty of El Salvador, that many of
them suffered damages to their
homes and businesses. Roaenthal
said Kahn urged that the
American Jewish community
assist in the general earthquake
relief effort.
The American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee announed
that it was opening its mailbox for
receipt of contribution* to aid the
earthquake victims.
Kahn, who owns a textile fac-
tory in San Salvador, is working
with other local hiinsnsn to
manage the flow of international
aid into the country. The program
is being coordinated by the
private sector, working with the
United States Agency for Interna-
tional Development.
Chair Funded
Chair for the Chief Librarian of
the Jewish Division of The New
York Public Library has been
created through a $1 million en-
dowment gift from the Dorot
Foundation. The endowed chair
represents the largest gift ever
made to the Jewish Division, one
of the greatest collections of
Judaica in the world and the moat
accessible. It will help secure the
continued growth of the Division
under the leadership of its chief,
Leonard Gold.
The American-built jet fighter
was the first Israel Air Force
plane shot down over Lebanon
since 1983. It was taking part in a
bombing raid on an El Fatah base
near the Lebanese coast south of
Tyre. It is believed to have been
hit by a Soviet-made SA-7 rocket.
Details of the pilot rescue were
released after nearly 10 hours of
official silence. According to the
account, the pilot managed for 90
minutes to evade terrorists in the
area. He was detected by a radio
transmitter device activated when
he bailed out of his plane.
A SEARCH helicopter braving
gunfire at treetop level swooped
to the ground long enough to
allow the pilot to grab the skids
and whisked him to safety. The
pilot, not immediately identified,
was released from Rambam
Hospital in Haifa after a physical
The search for the second down-
ed fyler proved fruitless.
Although Israel remains skeptical
of Amal's claim that he is their
captive, the government's coor-
dinator for policy in Lebanon, Uri
Lubrani, warned the Shiite militia
Sunday that it would be held
responsible for the safety and
welfare of the missing man.
Amal leader Nabih Berri spoke
over the weekend of a possible
major prisoner exchange. But
observers here doubt that Israel
would agree to anything on the
scale of the 1985 swap in which
1,150 convicted Lebanese and
Palestinian terrorists were releas-
ed in exchange for three Israeli
soldiers held in Lebanon by Ahm-
ed Jibril's Popular Front for the
