Mubarak Launches Peace Initiative
President Hosni Mubarak of
Egypt has launched a peace in-
itiative aimed at restoring
calm in the administered ter-
ritories while advancing
negotiations for a peace
According to commentators
here, the plan appears to have
gained broad support in princi-
ple, but sharp differences re-
main over specifics.
A major issue of contention
is whether the peace process

Anti-Semitic vandalism was down in Florida in 1987, while the number of
such incidents across the nation climbed dramatically, according to the annual
audit conducted by the Anti-Defamation League of B nai B'rith (ADL). The rise
largely reflected a 121 percent increase in California, where such acts soared
from 62 reported in 1986 to 137 last year.
The audit revealed a total of 694 reported incidents of vandalism and
desecration, ranging from swastika daubings to arson, against Jewish institu-
tions and property a 17 percent increase over the 594 episodes reported in
1986. Ten of the 1987 vandalisms involved arson or bombings.
In Florida the number of incidents of anti-Semitic vandalism declined from
79 in 1986 to 64 last year a 19 percent decrease.
Arthur Teitelbaum, ADL's Southern Area Director, said "there is small com-
fort in these statistics, despite the welcome decrease in the number of reported
vandalisms this past year.
"First," said Teitelbaum, "the total for 1987 (64) is virtually the same as that
for 1985 (67), meaning that over three years there is no trend in Florida pointing
to an overall decrease in such incidents. Second, with over 60 anti-Jewish van-
dalisms in the state plus a significant number of serious personal assaults against
Jews, there is absolutely no reason for complacency about such crimes."
The highest number of vandalism incidents occurred in New York with 207,
up 21 from 1986; followed by California, then Florida; New Jersey with 43, down
5, and Illinois with 96, up 22. The survey found episodes in 34 states and the
District of (Columbia.
In announcing the results of the national audit, Abraham H. Foxman, ADL's
National Director, called the 1987 report "disturbing" and cited the following
among the findings:

Little Hope For
Vatican Recognition
Soviets Again Denying Visas
If No Close Relative In Israel
Vatican recognition of the
State of Israel cannot be ex-
pected soon, according to Car-
dinal Johannes Willebrands,
president of the Vatican's
Commission for Religious
Relations with the Jews.
The Dutch-born Willebrands
conveyed that message to
Dutch Catholic bishops visiting
Rome last week, according to
reports reaching here.
Willebrands had been asked
about the prospects of
Catholic-Jewish dialogue. He
replied that a sharp distinction
must be made between
religious and political dialogue.
A religious dialogue must
take priority. But a political
dialogue is not to be expected
soon, nor is Vatican recogni-
tion of Israel, the cardinal said.
He added that by no means do
all Jews in the world identify
with the State of Israel.
Greek Leader Calls
For Recognition Of Israel
NEW YORK, Jan. 13 (JTA)
Soviet authorities are deny-
ing exit visas to Jews without
first-degree relatives in Israel
an official Soviet policy that
had been relaxed in recent
months the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry
Vyacheslav Uspensky, son of
prominent refuseniks Igor and
Inna Ioffe Uspensky, was
denied a Soviet exit visa Jan. 5
because of the lack of the first-
degree relative in Israel. His
refusal followed those of a
number of Leningrad Jews.
Soviet authorities announc-
ed last January they would ac-
cept applications for emigra-
tion only if they contained in-
vitations sent by first-degree
relatives in Israel. In recent
months, however, the Soviets
have allowed some Jews
without close relatives in
Israel to leave the country.
In a statement issued here,
Morris Abram, chairman of
the NCSJ, demanded to know
whether the denials were
"random, or do they suggest a
renewed Soviet intransigence
on the emigration issue?'

U.S. Abstains
UN Vote Urges Return
Of Deported Palestinians
(JTA) The United States
abstained Thursday (Jan. 14)
on a Security Council resolu-
tion calling on Israel "to en-
sure the safe and immediate
return" of four Palestinians it
expelled Wednesday from the
West Bank and to "desist"
from further deportations of
Palestinian civilians.
The resolution, adopted by a
vote of 14-0, was the third anti-
Israel resolution passed by the
Security Council in less than a
month and the second in which
the United States abstained.
The United States voted in
favor of a resolution on Jan. 5
demanding that Israel rescind
deportation orders it had
issued on Jan. 3 against nine
Palestinian activists from the
West Bank and Gaza Strip. It
abstained from voting on a
Dec. 22 resolution that con-
demned Israel for the
measures it was taking to sub-
due rioters in the territories.
The U.S. ambassador to the
United Nations, Vernon
Walters, criticized the Securi-
ty Council's preoccupation
with the situation in the ter-
ritories. In a brief statement
after the vote Thursday, he
said the United States abstain-
ed, because it believes that the
continued Security Council
meetings on the subject do not
assist in bringing tranquility to
the area.
Walters stressed that the
United States has made it
clear that it is opposed to
deportations and that it "deep-
ly regrets" the expulsion
Wednesday of the four Palesti-
nians. But the U.S. envoy
noted that the four had declin-
ed to use their right of appeal
to Israel's Supreme Court
against the deportation
He declared that the Securi-
ty Council's "selective atten-
tion" to the unrest in the ter-
ritories will not restore peace
and quiet to the West Bank
and the Gaza Strip.
Israel's ambassador to the
United Nations, Benjamin
Netanyahu, speaking before
the vote, said Israel would not
accept the resolution.
Afterward, he expressed
"appreciation" for the U.S.
abstention. Noting U.S. sup-
Krt for the Jan. 5 resolution,
said, "We are pleased that
the American vote is now shif-
ting in the other direction."
The resolution was spon-
sored by Algeria, Argentina,
Nepal, Senegal, Yugoslavia
and Zambia. Its operative
paragraphs stated:
"The Security Council (1)
calls upon Israel to rescind the
order to deport Palestinian
civilians and to ensure the safe
and immediate return to the
occupied Palestinian ter-
ritories of those already
deported; (2) requests that
Israel desist forthwith from
deportation of any other
Palestinian civilians from the
occupied territories; (3)
decides to keep the situation in
the Palestinian and other Arab
territories occupied by Israel
since 1967, including
Jerusalem, under review."
The Security Council also
reaffirmed its resolution of
Jan. 5 and expressed "deep
regret that Israel, the occupy-
ing power, has, in defiance of
that resolution, deported
Palestinian civilians."
Netanyahu, in his statement
before the vote, denounced the
resolution as grossly one-
sided. He said it contained not
one word about Palestinian
violence against Israeli Jews
and Israeli Arabs. He said it
lacks even "an appeal for
restraint on all sides.
Netanyahu declared that the
anti-Israel resolution would
only contribute to inflaming
passions and increasing
violence in the territories.
By expelling the four
Palestinians, Israel acted "as
our right under international
law to secure law and order in
the territories," the Israeli en-
voy said. He accused the
Security Council of condoning
acts of violence against Israel
and of condemning Israel's
countermeasures. "In face of
violence, it pushes peace fur-
ther away," he said.
He added, "Even if we
threw rose petals at the stone-
throwers, Israel would be con-
demned by the Security

Blacks and Jews At Odds
But Seeking Common Ground
w^l The Jewish ^^ y
The Jewish
of South County
Jews and blacks may be unable
to restore the spirit of in-
tergroup harmony they
developed in the 1960s, say
black and Jewish leaders, but
the groups can avoid the con-
flicts that often have
dominated their interactions in
the 1980s.
According to analysts of the
black Jewish relationship, that
may mean bypassing divisive
issues and concentrating on
the local communal concerns
they share as members of
historically oppressed
minorities. Whether that is
possible in an election year and
m the light of events in Israel
remains to be seen, they say.
"The relationship between
blacks and Jews is rather
tense, but both groups come
out of a commonality that's
still there," said Albert
Vorspan, director of social ac-
tion at the Union of American
Hebrew Coogregations, the
Reform Jewish congregational
Tension peaked in 1984,
when Jewish groups, still reel-
ing from the Rev. Jesse
Jackson's "Hymietown"
remarks and what they con-
sidered his inadequate
apology, demanded that the
presidential candidate ad other
black leaders repudiate Nation
of Islam leader Louis Far-
rakhan for rhetoric Jewish
leaders cosidered anti-Semitic.
So far, Jackson's 1988
presidetial campaign has not
inflamed the same passions.
But disagreement over
Jackson is often perceived not
as a cause of tension between
the groups, but as a symptom.
The cause of the tension may
be that Jews and blacks have
diverged in economic status
and thus in political and social
Said Phil Baum, associate
executive director of the
American Jewish Congress,
"Both groups believe in the
better distribution of oppor-
tunity and advantage than ex-
ists at the present time.
However, we disagree on the
means of how to achieve that
A continuing conflict has
been over quotas in hiring,
which black leaders believe
would help speed economic
growth, but which many
Jewish groups feel serve to
limit individual achievement.
Analysts agree that discus-
sion of quotas does not create
the rifts it once did, but deep
misunderstandings remain.
According to Cherie Brown,
executive director of the Na-
tional Coalition-Building In-
stitute, those misuderstadings
became apparent when she
conducted, as part of the
group's activities, intergroup
dialogue in the months follow-
ing the Farrakhan controversy
in 1984 and 1985.
Ironically, Farrakhan's
notoriety led to the formation
of black-Jewish coalition in a
number of cities. Some, such
as the New York Black-Jewish
Coalition, have since become
Wilbert Tatum, a founder of
the New York coalition and
editor-in-chief of the Amster-
dam News, the country's
largest black newspaper, said
the coalition foundered
because "both sides are afraid
to speak out, lest they be called
racist or anti-Semitic."
In other cases, the coalitions
have avoided areas of major
conflict such as Israel's
trade with South Africa, affir-
mative action and black sup-
port for Palestinians and in-
stead seek common ground in
local social and economic
Boston's Black-Jewish Coali-
tion, for example, was formed
in 1979 to diffuse tensions that
arose when Andrew Young, a
black who was dismissed as
U.S. ambassador to the United
Nations after holding
unauthorized meetings with
members of the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
Blacks accused Jews of forcing
the ouster.
The coalition has since
changed its mission to tackle
urban issues such a s housing,
education and crime preven-
tion, according to Sol Kolack
of Boston, national community
service director of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
Such coalition-building im-
plies that Jews and blacks still
share an agenda. "Both
groups still have a strong
sense of being outsiders," said
Murray Friedman, Middle
Atlantic States director of the
American Jewish Committee
and vice chairman of the U.S.
Civil Rights Commission.
In addition, said Martin
Lapan executive director of
the Jewish Labor Committee,
"Of all white ethnic groups,
the Jewish community is still
in its voting patterns far closer
to the interests of the black
Blacks and Jews were the
only two groups to vote in ma-
jority for Democratic presiden-
tial candidate Walter Mondale
in 1984.
But Friedman and others
are concerned about underly-
ing tensions. "Polls are show-
ing more hostility towards
Jews in the young and better-
educated level of the black
community than among older
blacks who are knowledgeable
about the civil rights move-
ment," said Friedman.
On the other side, blacks say
the traditionally liberal Jewish
community has absorbed the
negative values of the larger
society. "There is a new kind
of racism," said Norman Hill,
president of the A. Philip Ran-
dolph Institute, a labor coali-
tion founded by the late civil
rights leader Bayard Rustin.
"Although less predominant
among Jews, there's a feeling
that there's something in-
herently wrong with blacks,
that they are incapable of mak-
ing it after all that was done,
that following the civil rights
legislation of the '60's, there is
still crime, drug abuse, single
parent families, teenage
pregnancy," said Hill.
Said Tatum of the Amster-
dam News: "There has been a
real pulling apart on the part
of blacks and Jews. There is
nothing to be done. A staunch
ally appears to be like all
others. They have failed us,
and we them."
Yet despite pessimism on
both sides, coalition-building
goes on, according to Diana
Aviv, director of domestic con-
cerns at the National Jewish
Community Relations Ad-
visory Council.
She said a survey being con-
ducted among 113 local Jewish
community relations agencies
nationwide shows that all of
their communities are involved
either in ongoing dialogues,
jointly issued statements, joint
cultural programing or com-
memorations of the birthday of
Martin Luther King Jr. Iden-
tification with the King holi-
day is especially strong, she
Part of that identification is
bound to be nostalgia for "the
good fight" the battle for
justice waged alongside black
leaders in the 1960s.

Time On Side of
Palestinian Terrorist
OTTAWA (JTA) The government, under sharp
questioning in Parliament, admitted that a convicted
Palestinian terrorist managed to enter Canada on an im-
migrant visa last year and said deporting him "may take
many months."
"There is due process that is being followed," Solicitor
General James Kelleher told the House of Commons.
Immigration Minister Bernoit Bouchard said he ordered
officials at his ministry last October to start deportation
proceedings against Mahmoud Muhammad Issa Muham-
mad, 46, a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation
of Palestine, who arrived in Canada last February on a visa
obtained from the Canadian Consulate in Madrid.

U.S. Anti-Semitic Crimes Up;
Vandalism Down in Florida
Continued from Page 1
Some of the more serious
vandalism incidents were
perpetrated by members of a
hate group, the neo-Nazi
Skinheads, in several cities, in-
cluding Chicago, San Diego,
Los Angeles and Miami.
There were 78 arrests con-
nected with 58 of the anti-
Semitic incidents, a sharp in-
crease in arrests over the 1986
total of 57 in connection with
33 incidents.
While the majority of
perpetrators remained
teenagers, a fifth (17) of the 78
individuals arrested were 21
years of age or older, the
highest proportion in that age
group ever recorded.
The increase in anti-Semitic
incidents paradoxically came
during a period of vigorous
local law enforcement and
statutory efforts against bias
crimes and the recent federal
crackdown against hate
The report pointed out that
while vandalism involving hate
groups had accounted for no
more than one or two incidents
over the past several years,
the number jumped to about
20 in 1987 because of anti-
Semitic episodes attributed to
Skinhead extremists.
One of the more serious
episodes cited in the audit oc-
curred on Nov. 9 when 11
separate Jewish targets were
vandalized in the Chicago
area. A Skinhead gang
member was arrested in con-
nection with one of the at-
tacks. (Nov. 9 is the anniver-
sary of Kristallnacht, the
"Night of the Broken Glass" in
1938 when Nazi mobs attacked
synagogues and Jewish stores
across Germany.)
Foxman said the sharp in-
crease in the total of California
incidents may have been due,
in part, to the involvement of
Skinhead gang members in at-
tacks on Jewish property. For
example, in the San Fernando
Valley area alone, of several
episodes of vandalism and

The audit showed that two
synagogues one in
Massachusetts and the other in
California were arson
targets and sustained major
damage. Arsonists also attack-
ed a home in Maryland. In ad-
dition, Jewish homes in

figures for 1987 reinforce the
need for stricter law enforce-

perpetrators of bias crimes,
strengthened security
measures for Jewish institu-

both in the community and in
schools to sensitize public con-

pointed out, 31 state
legislatures have adopted
stricter laws aimed at curbing
religious or ethnic vandalism,
12 of which have enacted
statutes baaed on or similar to
a model bill drafted by ADL in
1981. In addition, ADL
monitoring activities have pro-
vided law enforcement
authorities with information
on hate groups and their
leaders and the agency has
cooperated with local law en-
forcement authorities in com-
batting bias crimes.

Waldheim Charges Mount
ternational panel of historians
met here Monday for its fourth
and possibly final session to
examine the alleged role of
Kurt Waldheim in Nazi
atrocities in the Balkans. He
served there as an intelligence
officer in the German Army
during World War n.
The panel's report, which
could determine whether the
Austrian president resigns,
was to have been issued in mid-
January, but it is not expected
to be ready before the second

The panel, headed by Hans
Peter Kurz of Switzerland,
consists of military historians
from Belgium, Britain,
Greece, Israel, West Germany,
the United States and
Yugoslavia. It was set up and
financed by the Austrian
government to determine the
veracity of allegations that

deportation of Greek Jews and

Israeli Occupation of Gaza
A month has gone by since
the riots in Gaza began. Israel
has struggled morally and
pragmatically as to how best to
end the unrest. The world cer-
tainly has its opinions and
answers. The UN has asserted
that the Israel Defense Forces
are using overly harsh
measures to quell the riots;
others claim that a strong
hand or noncapitulation to
violence is the only way to end
it. But one thing is certain;
compared to their Egyptian
predecessors, the Israeli rulers
are angels.
From 1948 to 1967 Egypt
and its army was totally in con-
trol of the strip. Under a
"constitution" drawn up by
cibly conscripted into the
Egyptian Army. Many were
sent to fight Nasser's war in
Yemen; others were dispatch-
ed into Israel to murder and
undertake acts of sabotage.
Since Israeli control, all this
has changed. Private owner-
ship of land is permitted.
Gazans travel freely
throughout Israel; most of
whom earn their livelihood in
the State of Israel. As a result,
the standard of living, since
1967 has risen 120 percent.
Life expectancy has risen from
55 years in 1967 to 63 in 1986.
Infant mortality has fallen
from 150/1,000 in 1967 to
33/1,000 in 1986. Problems are
mounting, however, because
What disturbs me the most,
how ever, is the fact that Israel
is always portrayed as the ag-
gressor. The West rarely is in-
formed of the positive strides
made by Israel. It's as if the
press is only concerned with
the wrongs that the Jewish
State is committing. It's as if
the press is interested in por-
traying Israel in the worst
Nazi fashion. Have they also
read anti-Israeli texts such as
Arabic Islamic History, which
reads, "The Jews are always
the same, everytime,
everywhere? They dwell only
in darkness. They secretly plan
to do evil. They fight only from
under cover because they are
cowards." Why is it that we
only hear about Israeli efforts
to restore order to this troubl-
ed region, and never about the
improvements or moral pro-
gress? Why is it that we never
read in the papers or see on
the evening news what occur-
red under Egyptian control?
Why do so few know about or
care about the fact that King
Hussein of Jordan killed
thousands of Palestinians in
"Black September" in 1970, or
that President Assad of Syria
murdered 30,000 men, women
and children, in two days in
For how long will Israel be
held to this double standard?

the Egyptians, all legislative the population growth in the
powers were invested in the
Egyptian military commander,
who controlled the civil ad-
ministration. All political par-
ties except one endorsed by
the Egyptians were banned.
The military governor also
headed the judiciary, from
which there was no appeal.
No elections were ever held.
A puppet legislature, hand-
picked by the Egyptians,
automatically ratified all
legislation that the governor
brought before it. In 1965,
even this facade of local
autonomy collapsed when the
Egyptian Army dissolved the
legislative assembly.
No one was immune from ar-
rest by the secret police, who
probed every home. Arrest
was invariably followed by, at
best, a secret trial and long
terms of imprisonment. Tor-
ture was commonplace, and
the jails were always full.
Telephone lines were tapped.
There was official censorship
of mail and the press. Special
permits were required to ob-
tain employment.
No one was permitted to
leave the strip without a per-
mit, even to travel to Egypt. If
pass-holders failed to return to
the strip at the stipulated time,
the authorities took steps
against their families.
The Egyptian governor se-
questered land and property at
will. Refugees were prohibited
by law from purchasing or
owning land. Thousands of
young male residents were for-
Mine Kills
* \ Australian army captain was
killed and a Canadian officer
was seriously injured Monday
(Jan. 11) when their vehicle hit
a mine and overturned on a
dirt road in the western sector
of the southern Lebanon
security zone.
Both officers were serving
with the United Nations In-
terim Force in Lebanon. They
were among 76 officers from
16 countries attached to the in-
ternational peacekeeping
force. They were not im-
mediately identified.
UNIFIL sources said they
presumed the mine was
planted by guerrillas and in-
tended to injure soldiers of the
Israeli-backed South Lebanon
Army, which patrols the
security zone.
strip is the fastest on the
globe. In 1948 the residents
numbered 381,000. Today the
numbers are 700,000. By the
year 2000, experts predict that
830,000 people will be crowded
into that 7 mile by 25 mile
strip. No wonder poverty is on
the increase.

Wallenberg Seen Alive?
MONTREAL, (JTA) Raoul Wallenberg, whom the
Soviet authorities claim died 40 years ago, is still alive and
still in prison, according to Irwin Cotler, a McGill Universi-
ty law professor who left for Moscow Friday, with the in-
tention of raising the issue of Wallenberg's fate with
Kremlin leaders.
Cotler said at a news conference before his departure
that he has confidential information from a "highly placed
Swedish diplomat" that as recently as October 1987,
Wallenberg was "alive and incarcerated in a prison not far
from Moscow." If alive, he would be 76.

expelled. Four from the West Bank who waived their ap-
peals were deported to Lebanon on Jan. 13. The case of a
fifth from the West Bank is pending.
