that $250,000 was raised at the

Prime Minister
Menachem Begin is taking
a tough line toward
President Carter on the
settlements issue and
defied his critics at home in
a television interview in
which he declared that his
government would com-
plete its present term of
office and that he would
stand for reelection af-
Begin, who will meet with
Carter in Washington this
month, said: "If President Carter
asks me to freeze the settlements,
1 shall tell him this is our right,
this is our duty, and it is an
integral part of our national
security and we must settle." He
said he and Carter had been at
odds over the settlements since
their first meeting in July. 1977.
flatly rejected the latest
American proposal that Israel
freeze settlements until May 26,
the target date for completion of
the autonomy talks with Egypt.
The U.S. cited as a precedent the
three-month freeze during the
peace treaty negotiations with
But Begin said, "Even then it
was not really a freeze, since we
continued to strengthen existing
settlements. That undertaking
expired a long time ago and if it
were renewed there would never
be an end to it."
Although a Cabinet decision to
establish Jewish religious in-
stitutions in the heart of the
West Bank Arab town of Hebron
polarized opinion in Israel and
has drawn criticism from many of
Israel's friends abroad, Begin
was adamant on the subject. He
said it was not a political decision
but merely the "correction" of an
historic wrong when Hebron
Jews were killed by Arabs in the
1929 uprising.
BEGIN SAID the fact that the
Cabinet's decision was adopted
by a narrow margin made it no
less valid. "Even a majority of
one is a majority," he said. He

Anti-Semitic Sermons
Evoke Shock Waves
A local preacher who delivered a
series of what is regarded as
blatantly anti-Semitic sermons
three months ago, claiming that
the Holocaust was God's punish-
ment of the Jews for their
rejection of Jesus, drew ex-
pressions of shock and anger
from Christian and Jewish
groups that have not abated
despite a recent disclaimer and
charges of a "witch hunt" by the
Rev. Ernest O'Neill, an Irish-
born former Methodist minister
who heads the non-
denominational Campus Church
here and a number of affiliated
business enterprises, drew a
sharp rebuke from the Council of
Religious Advisors (CRA) of the
University of Minnesota and a
somewhat equivocal protest by
the Minnesota Council of
Churches which upheld his right
to express his views although it
disagreed with them.
THE CRA is a group of 14
clergymen and church workers
who serve the student body at
the university. The Campus
Church is in no way associated
with that institution but many
students attend its services.
Morton Ryweck, executive
director of the Jewish Com-
munity Relations Council of
Minneapolis and of the Anti-
Defamation League of Minnesota
and the Dakotas, saw O'Neill's
sermons as a reminder "that
theologically-based Christian
anti-Semitism is still with us,
notwithstanding the progress
that has been made in recent
decades in reforming church
teaching and certain liturgical
references about the Jews and
O'Neill initially defended his
nvidious references to Jews on
^-rounds that he was merely
luoting Biblical verses about
lews to provide examples
idevant to Christian living,
.ater he disavowed some of his
nore scurrilous remarks,
(aiming they were taken out of
context and distorted by his
critics. In a Jan. 27 sermon, he
called the Jews a "reprobate"
people who had spurned God's
will and said that "the nation of
Israel faces more contempt and
more suspicion than any other

Jewish Census Soon to Arrive at Your Home
Uncle Abe wants you! Not to
be confused with Uncle Sam, the
Jewish Community Survey will
soon arrive in some of your
This census costs less to run,
requires 12 months to develop,
implement and analyze, asks
very Jewish questions and was
last conducted in 1958 under the
very capable chairmanship of
Mrs. Lawrence Falk.
In 1958, the then Tampa
Jewish Welfare Federation spon-
sored a rather extensive survey
among its then 3,127 Jews. This
number constituted 1.2 percent of
the total (300,000 +) population
of metropolitan Tampa. Now in
1980, 22 years later, Tampa has
an estimated population of over
500,000 persons of which almost
2 percent are Jewish.
Since 1958, the Tampa Jewish
community has grown
tremendously. We now have five
synagogues; in 1958 there were
only three. In 1980. we have pro-
fession Federation, Social Ser-
vice, and Community Center. The
building which houses the Jewish
Community Center. Tampa
Jewish Federation, and Tampa
Jewish Social Service was built in
1961, replacing a beautiful but
inadequate converted home
which used to stand on 325 Hyde

Passover Baskets Distributed in Area
Once agian. the Tampa
Chapter of B nai B'rith and Hillel
School, in cooperation with
Tampa Jewish Social Service,
have provided Passover baskets
to over 30 families in the area.
Under the direction of Jeff
Miller, chairman of community
volunteer services, and I^ee
Rubin. B'nai B'rith has for the
second year reached out in an
effort to provide an opportunity
for the entire Jewish community
to celebrate Passover in its true
tradition. Hillel School, this year,
has joined B'nai B'rith in this
mission by supplying food and
transportation of goods.
Brightly colored boxes,
decorated in Passover style by
Hillel students, were distributed
throughout the community by
Hillel School mothers, coor-
dinated by Gail Pershes. JoAnn
Williams and Sue Forman who
were helped out by other com-
munity members.
The task of providing these
sizable amounts of Passover food
could not have been ac-
complished without the dedicated
commitment of all three
organizations said Miller who
expressed special thanks to
Publix, Albertson's and the
Sheppard'a Farm Market for
making these large amounts of
Passover goods availabe.
Through the efforts of many,
the tradition of good will has
truly been reflected this Passover
season," said Anne K. Thai,
executive director of Tampa
Jewish Social Service.

Home Settlements
There is growing concern among American Jews,
as well as Israelis, that the Israel government's
concentration of Jewish settlements on the West
Bank is resulting in the neglect of increasing Jewish
settlements within Israel proper. No matter how one
feels about the issue of West Bank settlements, there
is no question that the development of such areas as
the Galilee and the Negev are vital to Israel's future.
Rabbi Alexander Schindler, president of the
Union of American Hebrew Congregations, points
out that of 1,250 new housing units planned, 1,000
are for the West Bank, 200 for the Golan Heights, "a
sprinkling for the Galilee hilltop settlements and
nothing at all for the Arava." In his view, "the entire
nation is disadvantaged." At the same time, the
Jewish Agency budget committee reports that it can
not spend its funds earmarked for infrastructure
work at settlements in Israel because the govern-
ment has budgeted its housing funds for the occupied
Israel is trying to reduce government spending
in an effort to curb inflation. But to eliminate almost
entirely funds for developing settlements within
Israel is shortsighted, not to mention a denial of the
spirit of Zionism and the call for aliya.
There are plentiful figures available from Israeli
government agencies to show that the large birth
rate of Israeli Arabs will mean that the Galilee will
have more Arabs than Jews unless many more Jews
settle there.
The Negev is the empty space where Israel's
future development was first forecast by David Ben
Guion, Israel's first Prime Minister, who tried to set
an example by moving there himself. The govern-
ment's aim should be to encourage Israelis, both
newcomers and its young people, to move into the
deserving careful consideration,

by Monroe Bell, Interim
Executive Director, which it said
"reflects fairly the prevailing
opinions among the leadership of

Minnesota with a total mem-
bership of about a million per-
sons." The statement reaffirmed
"our affection for the Jewish
people and our gratitude for their
cultural heritage which has
enriched and ennobled human life
for thousands of years."
With respect to O'Neill, the
statement observed that "Our
scriptures, both Old and New
Testaments, call on us to be
reticent in passing judgement.
We affirm that the Rev. Mr.
O'Neill is fully entitled to hold

declared that the opinions he

people are derived from the true
reading of scripture and
Christian faith. We disagree."

mended the CRA, the Council of
Churches "and other concerned
Christians for their forthright
criticism of Rev. Ernest O'Neill's

O'Neill accused his critics of

Strain Develops in Relatiori&*
As Israel-Egypt Talks Continue
Strains appeared to be
developing in Israeli-Egyptian
relations following President
Anwar Sadat's complaint that
Israel is dragging its feet in the
autonomy negotiations and the
sharp response by Israel's chief
negotiator. Interior Minister
Yosef Burg, who suggested that
the delegations start dealing with
the "difficult problems per-
taining to eacter and substance of
proposed autonomy."
Sadat said, in an interview
with writer Amos Elon published
in Haarett, that he was "partly
disappointed" with .Israel
because of the failure to make
progress in the autonomy talks
and the Israel lobby's efforts in
Washington to thwart the supply
of advanced American arms to
Egypt. Sadat also warned that if
there is no progress on autonomy
by the May 26 deadline set by the
Camp David accords, "a new
situation" would arise. He would
not elaborate.
BURG, for his part, sent cables
to his negotiating partners.
Prime Minister Mustapha Khalil
of- Egypt, and U.S. Special
Ambassador Sol LinowiU,
suggesting that they step up the
pace of the autonomy talks by
scheduling weekly plenary
sessions, while the lower level
working groups continue their
meetings as before.
Another sign that Israeli-
Egyptian relations are not
running smoothly hardly a
month after the two countries
exchanged ambassadors was the
break-off in trade negotiations in
Tel Aviv. The Egyptian
delegation left the country
without reaching a trade
agreement with Israel. The
parties decided to continue their
talks, but no time or place were

very sorry, very, very sorry. But

Begin said his government
would continue to rule as long as
it has a Knesset majority "and all
of the Peace Now demonstrations
will not help." He said he had no
intention of resigning "even if
50,000 people demonstrated
because they do not constitute
more than two and one-half
mandates in the Knesset."
He said most of his fellow
ministers felt the government

Anti-Jewish animus in Pakis-
tan was typified by a mining
engineer, educated in the West
who was quoted in a Xcir York
Times survey of anti-Semitic
attitudes as saying:
"American banks are con-
trolled by Jews, so of course.
Washington supports Israel
against the interests of the entire
Islamic world ... we Pakistanis
think the (icnnans were right in
World War II.''
ONE OE the most blatant
expressions of Pakistani anti-
Semitism was the publication of
the lMM>k. A History of Jewish
(rimes, by Shakil Ahmed Zia. in
the 1960s. The volume is filled
with virulent and hysterical
attacks on Jews.
Dawn, an influential English-
language newspaper in Pakistan,
has quoted the "Protocols of the
Elders of Zion." the notorious
t'zarist forgery, in condemning
the Jewish people.
Such hate propaganda has its
effects. Several years ago a
student, screaming anti-Jewish
slogans, smashed into the office
of Pan Am World Airways in
Karachi and tried to set the
premises on fire. The youth said
he "thought the airline was
owned by Jews." At about that
same time. Pakistan officially
banned the Cecil H. DeMille film

accord with the wishes of Moslem
leaders who called the movie

(JTA) Results of Sec-
retary of State Cyrus
Vance's two bouts in the
Senate and House on the
anti-Israel UN Security
Council Resolution 465 of
Mar. 1 appear to be on
these lines:
Notwithstanding Presi-
dent Carter's disavowal on
Mar. 3 of the U.S. vote for
it and his expressions that
his policy has not changed
towards Israel, Vance's
testimony tended to con-
form to all aspects of the
resolution and the entire
matter ended there.
ments that Jerusalem is an "un-
divided city," Vance repeatedly
told the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee and the House
Foreign Affairs Committee on
successive days that East
Jerusalem is "occupied territory"
and even referred to the Rogers
Plan of 19fi9 that called on Israel
to withdraw from "occupied"
Although no Security Council
resolution that asserts "Pales-
tinian and Arab lands"'has been
previously approved by the U.S.,
Vance dismissed this vital
language change as demo-
graphic description" and "merely
descriptive language."
While the Security Council's
record shows the U.S. approving
the resolution and the U.S. com
ment saying that "dismantling
of the settlements "including
East Jerusalem" is "impractical"
(Carter said "dismantling" is
"improper and impractical"),
Vance rejected suggestions that a
U.S. statement be placed in the
UN files the President's own
words of Mar. 3 and his list of
"principles" the following week
to set the record straight.
Later, a specialist was asked,
why not? "It would irritate the
Arabs," was the answer
about the resolution's impact on
the autonomy talks, Carter had
said the resolution violated key
aspects of his policy toward
Israel, particularly on .Jerusalem.
Vance simply testified that the
President's disavowal resulted
from concern that the Egyptian-
Israeli autonomy talks would be
Vance's testimony
corroborated 'earlier Stale
Department responses that the
resolution was unsuitable "at
this lime" meaning, ap-
parently, the timing, not the
content, was the basis for the
Resolution 465 does not men-
tion Resolutions 242 and 338 that
underpin the Camp David ac-
cords and speaks of "East
Jerusalem" as "occupied." Hut
Vance defended it in all its
aspects although in both Houses
of Congress it was emphasized
the new resolution, if carried out,
destroys the earlier resolutions
and lhe basis for the autonomy
outlook and attempts at
justification of policy at the
highest levels in the U.S. govern-
ment have made many wonder
who makes policy and speaks for
it. Since Vance refused to make
available to the Senate and the
House any documentation of
what led up the Mar. 1 vote, the
situation remains unclear as to
the U.S. position.
Such confusion apparently
caused Sen. Jack Danforth (R.,
Mo.) to exclaim that the Ad-
ministration is indulging in
"gross hypocrisy," while Rep.
Millicenl Fenwick (R., N.J.)
exclaimed that "it is very hard to
say our policy is unchanged and
vote for so many things that
represent change.' Sen George
McGovem ID., S.D.), who has
angered friends of Israel by his
overture to tha Palestine Lib-
oration Organization, told Vance
that the U.S. should have ab
stained or vetoed the resolution
because of the harm it was doing.
When UN Ambassador Donald
Mcllenry, who cast the US rote
in the Security Council, was dis-
cussing the resolution the
morning after the President
repudiated it. he said the "settle-
ment" in Hebron was the cause
for the U.S. support of the
Security Council action. But
Vance, near the end of his
testimony in the House, seemed
to have doubts about the im-
portance of the Hebron situation
in relation to the resolution.
N.Y.) told him: "You are remark-
ably insensitive at tunes to the
reelings of Israelis, particularly
regarding Hebron." Bingham
noted the return of .Jewish
families "was not a settlement in
the normul sense but Jews
moving back lo their houses
from which Jews were driven in
the "pogrom of 1928."
Vance replied that the matter
"is not clear in my own mind with
respect Ui Hebron. It remains to
be seen how that can be
In supporting the resolution's
aspects and U.S. policy calling
settlements illegal'' and "an
obstacle to peace. Adminis-
tration spokesmen and their
allies, in Congress and the media
have used Israelis and American
Jews who have spoken out
against settlements. Typical was
the remark to Vance by Hep Joel
Prilchard We should say the settlements
are counter-productive and that
many in Israel and Jews in this
country agree."

Passover Thoughts
Rabbi Samuel Mohliver of Biolestek took upon himself the
great Mitzvoh of supplying kosher food to Jewish soldiers
stationed near his city. The government was elated for it saved
them the cost of non-kosher food supplied free by the army's
One day before Passover, the rabbi was visited by the head of
the Jewish congregation who explained that due to inflation and
the high cost of food, it would be impossible for the Jewish
population to contribute towards purchasing kosher Passover
food for the soldiers.
Rabbi Mohliver said. "In that case, I will call a meeting of my
Bait-Din (Hebrew Judges) and we will allow the use of beans
this Passover." As all knowledgeable Jews know, legumes
(beans) are not permitted to be eaten on this holiday.
THE HEAD of the congregation was elated to see how easily
the problem was solved by his religious leader. "May the Lord
bless you. 1 was worried how to supply the Jewish soldiers with
meals for Passover. Now you have come up with an excellent
solution to the problem, we will feed them beans, a high source
of protein."
"Legumes, for the Jewish soldiers did you say? I will never
allow this in Bialostok. We. you and I, and the entire Jewish
population of this city will eat beans for Passover but the
soldiers, they will eat meat and the best food available to keep
their strength up!" exclaimed the rabbi.
During Passover we are commanded by our Torah, to rid
ourselves of all Chometz (Leaven). It is a "checkup," time when
we are given the opportunity of searching into our inner souls,
for the purpose of attaining higher spiritual goals, Bedikat
Hamctz and Biur Hametz (searching and removing leaven).
Our sages regarded Chometz, as a symbol of "Evil Desires."
They likened our desires to the leaven in the Dough of Life. By
the act of removing all Chometz from our homes, we symbolize
our desires for liberation from the corrupting influences which
makes us subservient to our passions and desires. Matzah
portrays the virtue of humility, whereas Chometz denotes pride
and arrogance. During the Passover week, we are to cultivate
the virtue of humility (Matzah) and make it an integral part of
our lives.
Moses said to Pharoah: 'Ki Mimenu Nikach Laavod ."
"Because from them (our cattle) we will take to serve the Lord
our God (Exodus 10:26)
THE TALMUD (Ervin 100) says: "Rabbi Yochanan stated,
If the Torah had never been given to us, we could have learned
I modesty from the cat, honesty from the ant, chastity from the
I dove (one mate) good manners from the rooster (who has
foreplay before mating). From the animals we would have
learned the way to serve the Lord. "Ki Mimenu Nikach
I Laavod," Because From Them We Will Take A Lesson To Serve
|The Lord our God."
And Moses said to Pharoah, "Binaraenu, Uvizkenaenu,
iNelech." "We Will Go With Our Young and With our Old, With
|OurSons And Daughters." (Exodus 10:9)
I lir old as well as the young are essential to a nation. A child
Iis an orphan when he does not have parents. A nation is an
|orphan when it has no children.
Rabbi Judah Halevi, a Jewish poet and inspired thinker of the
Middle Ages, on his pilgrimage to the Holy Land stopped over
|in Egypt, the land that witnessed Israel's deliverance.
(He Wrote), Look on the cities and consider the villages which
I Israel held in possession and give glory to Egypt and lighten thy
[steps: Nay, tread not heavily upon the streets where the
IDivine Presence passed through to seek the blood of the
[covenant upon the doorsteps, and the pillar of fire and the pillar

land from there were carven the cornerstones of the people of the
|Lord (Rabbi Judah Halevi)
IT IS told of Rabbi Israel Salent, the Father of the Muser
movement in Judaism, that he would supervise the baking of
Matzahs in his town.
It happened that one day he became sick and could not
personally supervise the Matzah baking before Passover. His
students volunteered to take his place. "Are there any last
minute instructions? What is the most important thing we
should guard against?" they asked.
The rabbi replied; "There is something very important. There
is a poor woman, a widow who comes every year to bake her own
Matzahs. Be very careful not to yell at her or embarrass her.
Help her feel at home. "This is the essence of the spirit of
Passover. A Kosher and Happy Passover to Y'U!

Vets' Counseling Center Opens
The Veterans Administration's
newest program, a unique
outreach effort aimed at Vietnam
era veterans with readjustment
problems, officially began in St.
Petersburg. March 24, with the
opening of a VA counseling
center at 250 31st St.
Center director Joe Gelsomino
and the program's regional
director Steven Levenberg, who
is setting up 12 such centers
throughout the southeast, hosted
an open house at the St.
Petersburg "VetCenter."
The center is the second to
open in Florida. The Miami Vet
Center opened a month ago and
centers in Fort Lauderdale and
Jacksonville are due to open in a
few weeks. Over 80 Vet Centers
will open in cities across the
country this year. They are being
established under a provision of
the Veterans Health Care
Amendments Act of 1979, signed
into law by President Carter last
June, that provides for informal,
low-key psychological counseling
for Vietnam era veterans who
have had difficulty re-entering
civilian life.
ALL CENTERS are located
away from established VA
facilities, in store fronts or other
locations thought to be con-
venient to large numbers of
veterans needing their services.
The centers are to be as free of
conventional government regula-
tions and red tape as possible.
Eligibility for help will not be
based on a medical examination
or diagnosis and veterans need
not make prior contact with VA
offices or hospitals.
The St. Petersburg center is in
a one-story converted store front
building in St. Petersburt's
Central Plaza area. It houses
private counseling rooms, rooms
for rap sessions, a lounge and
coffee area and staff offices.
Center team leader Joe
Gelsomino said the center is
designed and furnished to
provide an informal "home-like"
"We've just moved into our
permanent location," Gelsomino
said, "but we've been seeing
veterans since late January. So
far our program has been well
received and our counseling staff
is quite busy. The response has
been very positive."
VA CHIEF Max Cleland,
himself a disabled Vietnam
combat veteran, first proposed
special readjustment services for
Vietnam veterans a decade ago.
He said the heart of the program
"will be counseling to give
assistance without what some
people regard as the stigma of a
psychiatric diagnosis.
"If we find it is advisable, and
the veteran requests it, we can
supplement our own services
with private psychological care or
by admission to the Veterans
Administration's regular mental
health program."
The St. Petersburg counseling
center is staffed by a small team
of experts specially trained to
counsel Vietnam era veterans and
their families on problems
resulting from the veteran's
service. In addition to individual,
group and family counseling,
team members will assist
veterans in career and
educational development.
"Basically," Gelsomino said,
"The program is a no-frills, low-
key approach to helping that
group of young Vietnam era
Veterans who have failed to get
the help they need because they
are turned off by bureaucratic red
tape and long waiting lines.
"We will be trying to give help
to a bunch of veterans who, for
many reasons, have not been able
to put their Vietnam experiences
behind them. They gave much
and lost much in service to our
nation. It is right that we should
extend ourselves to help them
help themselves."

Oriental Dance Class Offered at JCC
Oriental dance, known
variously as Danse du Venture,
abdominal dancing, Raks al
Sharoi. and belly dance, is a
tradition which reaches so far
into antiquity that its founda-
tions are lost in time.
Presumed to have arisen in
pagan Mesopotamia (modem-day
Iraq), the dance is still found in
its most unadulterated form as a
childbirth ritual among the
nomadic Berber tribes of North
Africa and the Middle East.
The process goes on today. As
the oldest recognizable woman-
dominated dance form, the art
has a new meaning for modem-
day women, as they embrace
more and more the uniqueness of
woman's existence.
More than ever, concerned
with their bodies, their
traditions, their abilities and
their self-expression, women the
world over are reawakening to
the mother of dances.
Professional dancers, male and
female, have brought the dance
nearer the mainstream of artistic
development by their infusions of
talent and discipline, while
hobbyists maintain the dance's
long and healthy tradition as a
popular art, near to and reflective
of the people's energy, travail,
strength, and joy.
The JCC offers a class in the
fundamentals of dance move-
ment. It is also an introduction to
the subtle beauty of oriental
dance. Since this class will need
to re-discover the body's
potential will for strength and
suppleness, participants will
want to be comfortably and
suitably dressed.
The class will begin Monday
evening, April 14, 6:30-7:30 p.m.

argue that Elnecave is a captive,
like Timerman was, of Argen-
tinian fascism that refuses to
suffer a free press? That he was
embarrassed by the American
Jewish community's aggressive
pursuit of Timerman *s rights as a
journalist? That the Argentinian
Jewish community was also
embarrassed by American
Jewry's outspoken demands and
that Elnecave is simply covering

La Luz article on Timerman
The La Luz piece exists pre-
cisely as the Review describes it,
and the AOL reacted angrily to it
for two reasons. One is that the
ADL helped play a role in Timer-
man's release, which it regards as
a positive achievement, not as an
"abuse" of the "anti-Semitic
THE OTHER is that Elnecave
single* out the ADL for par-
ticularly venomous attacks in the
Timerman case which, he
charges, "was decisively in-
due need, although in a veiled
manner, by the abuse of the
argument of anti-Semitism, an
argument often suspected sub-
consciously by many gentiles.
Precisely this is the technique
that the ADL of North American
B'nai B'rith put to use."
In particular, Elnecave was
angered that "Last June (19791,
it (the ADD committed a big
mistake by awarding a well-
recognized prize to Timerman
without consulting or even
asking for the least necessary
information from the local Jewish
organizations. Immediately, the
ADL launched a feverish cam-
paign to enlarge Timerman's
image, which it succeeded in
doing in great measure. That
caused great displeasure in many
circles of the Jewish community,
in addition to the excellent article
by Manfred Schonfeld in I.u
Prensa of June 16, 1979 titled.

United Slates and the Timerman

not let their sense ol outrage at
being by-passed rest there
Acting the total patriotic Argen-
tinian, they declare, "As if this
unconsulted initiative of the

man, having hardly been freed,

larations that are clearly in-

edil ion of La Prensa, they cite the
ADL's Morton Rosenthal as
having stated. "The Timerman
case has unfinished agenda
items. In expelling him, the
government stripped him of his
Argentine citizenship without
basis in law. Previously, the
government had illegally con-
fiscated his propery. These issues
must be resolved."
Elnecave concludes
categorically. "What is it that
the ADL proposes with these
unusual, impertinent manifes-
tations? To question the right of
our government to take away the
acquired citizenship of a person
of dubious morality that has
declared urbi et orbi from Tel
Aviv that this was not his home
(or country)?"
The La Luz case against
Timerman seems tenuous in the
extreme. Editor Elnecave argues
that "Timerman was a partner
with David Graiver in La
Opinion. Under Timerman's
direction, La Opinion had
journalists who were linked with

Military 'Jew-Burners'
Go on Trial in Munich
BONN (JTA) A gross
anti-Semitic incident at the
Munich military college three
years ago is the subject of a trial
that has opened there of two
senior officers on the college
staff. Col. Edgar Muenx, 47, and
Maj. Hans-Joachim Stabenau,
40, are accused of failure to report
the incident in February, 1977 in
which a group of cadets burned a
"Jew" in effigy, sang Nazi songs
and shouted "Throw another Jew
on the fire."
The incident was characterized
as the worst manifestation of
anti-Semitism in the German
armed forces. Eleven cadets who
participated were suspended. A
number of them have since
Reds Aim to Drive Visa
Applicants From 5 Cities,
Soviet Jewish Body Says
Reports of new regulations
that would drive Jewish
exit applicants out from the
five Soviet Olympic cities
for two and a half months
during the summer have
reached the Student Strug-
gle for Soviet Jewry and
the Union of Councils for
Soviet Jews. A spokesman
for the SSSJ explained that
while the major Olympic
Games will be held in Mos-
cow, auxiliary Games will
be held in four other cities.
According to the information
first seen posted at a MOSCOW
emigration office, exit applicants
living in the capital, Leningrad.
Kiev. Minsk and Tallin will be
barred from these cities from
June 19, a month before the
Olympics begin, through Sept. 3,
a month after the Games, the two
groups reported. Applicants
residing in other cities will not be
permitted to enter any of these
cities during this period.
THE SSSJ and UCSJ said new
regulations have taken effect in
Moscow which legally allow
authorities to exile from the
capital anyone considered drunk.
This is not only aimed at the
USSR's chronic and embarras-
sing alcoholism problem.
In the past, scores of Jewish
activists have been hauled off
from demonstrations and placed
in drunk tanks. This may now
provide the "record" needed to
banish them.
Reports which reached the
West several months ago also
asserted that Moscow parents,
.Jew and non-Jew alike, were
being pressured to remove their
children and teenagers from the
capital during the Games to
avoid "contamination" from

Shamir Says He'll Take Active
Role in Autonomy Talks
Foreign Minister Yitz-
hak Shamir said that he
intended to take an active
part in the autonomy nego-
tiations with Egypt and the
U.S. He also said that May
2G is not the final date for
completion of the talks but
merely a desired date.
Shamir's remarks echoed
those of Prime Minister
Menachem Begin who stressed m
;i speech in \laalot vcsterda>
that the Ma\ 26 target date set in
the Camp l>a\ id accords was not
a deadline Begin noted that it
had taken six months rather than
the targeted three, to negotiate
the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty
and similarly the autonomy talks
could proceed for as long as it
takes to reach agreement.
Shamir and Begin appreared
intended to prepare the public for
the all but certain prospect that
the autonomy talks will not be
completed by May 26. Reports
from Washington indicated that
the U.S. also realizes that the
chance for a successful conclusion
by that date is exceedingly slim.
Nevertheless, the U.S. is
urging Israel to make the most of
the time available until May 26.

News in Brief
India First to Recognize PLO
LONDON The government
of India became the first
government to extend full
diplomatic recognition to the
Palestine Liberation
Organization. According to
reports, PLO Chief Yasir Arafat
was in New Delhi Saturday for a
two-day visit at the invitation of
Prime Minister Indira Ghandi.
Foreign Minister Narasimha
Rao, in announcing the decision,
which upgrades the PLO office in
New Delhi to the status of an
embassy, said no comprehensive
settlement of the Middle East
deadlock was possible without
participation of the PLO as an
equal partner in peace talks.
The Foreign Minister also said
the visit by Arafat symbolized
not only lndo-Palestinian friend
ship but also Indo-Arab solid-
arity. India, which extended
formal recognition to Israel in
1950. has allowed the PLO to
maintain an office in New Delhi
since 1975.
JERUSALEM The latest
round in the autonomy talks was
held in Alexandria at the top
negotiating level amid charges by
Israeli ministers that the
Egyptians were deliberately
blocking progress. Israel's
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir
was scheduled to have his first
meeting with Prime Minister
Mustapha Khalil, head of the
Egyptian negotiating team.
Interior Minister Yosef Burg,
head of the Israeli delegation,
met with U.S. special
Ambassador Sol Linowitz. But a
three-party meeting scheduled
was postponed.
Government sources in Cairo
predicted that little or no
progress would be made. Israeli
ministers were quoted as saying
that the Egyptians were holding
back the talks and that the recent
attacks on Israel in the Egyptian
media were an attempt to conceal
this. According to the Israelis,
the Egyptian tactic ever since the
autonomy talks began was to
bring up subjects for discussion
but then switch to other issues as
soon as some progress was made
on the first subjects.
GENEVA The board of the
United Nations Conference on
Trade and Development adopted
a resolution that would provide
financial help for the Palestine
Liberation Organization. It was
promptly denounced by the
Israeli delegate to UNCTAD.
Israel Eliashiv.
The resolution, adopted by a
vote of 63-13 with 14 abstentions,
was submitted on behalf of the
Group of 77, an alignment of
Third World nations. A similar
resolution was adopted at the
Manila conference last summer
when it was opposed by
Australia. New Zealand and
Norway. This time, those
countries abstained.
Eliashiv said: "It is no secret
that parts of that resolution as
well as of the resolution before us
were initiated and inspired by the
so-called PLO We strongly
oppose any kind of assistance
which might be implied to the
PLO, an organization which
makes no secret of its avowed
objectives, set forth in its
covenant, of destroying Israel, a
member state of the United

against accused Nazi war
criminal Vilis Hazners.
According to Allan Ryan Jr.,

notice of appeal has been filed
