at a news conference in the
Jordanian capital of Amman,
also said he might convene the
Palestine National Council to

hasn't worked so far. He also
expressed disappointment
with the lack of progress in the
U.S.- PLO dialogue that began
eight months ago.
The PNC is the PLO's so-
called parliament in exile.
Arafat described Palestini-
ans who collaborate with
Israel as "quislings" and said
actions taken against them by
the leadership of the Palestin-
ian uprising were justified.
But Israeli Defense Minister
Yitzhak Rabin maintained that
60 to 70 percent of the Arabs
murdered by fellow Arabs in
the West Bank and Gaza Strip
recently had nothing whatever
to do with the Israeli authorit-
Those killings were crimin-
ally or personally motivated,

Rabin expressed concern
over the mounting wave of
murders. He said Israel consid-
ered itself responsible for the
safety of all residents of terri-
tories, Jews and Arabs alike.
The defense minister also
reiterated that Israel is not
presently conducting negotia-
tions for the return of Israeli
soldiers and Western hostages
held by Shiite extremist
groups in Lebanon.

Klein contended that the

Klein has been appearing in
radio and television interviews
since he returned to Israel
from abroad Thursday.
Israel Television identified
him last Wednesday as the
man alleged by NBC News to
be a mercenary employed by
the drug cartel.
A videotape purported to be
made by the Colombian drug
syndicate was aired by NBC
News on August 22. It showed
uniformed men undergoing
training from instructors the
newscast identified as Israeli
and South African.
State Department Satisfied
One of them spoke Hebrew
on the videotape, which was
translated to Spanish. The film
was shown the next night by
Israel Television, which identi-
fied the speaker as Klein.
Klein said the film clip was
taken from a videotape his
firm made 18 months ago to
advertise its services.
Klein said he had declined to
renew his contract in Colom-
bia, but revisited that country
briefly four months ago to col-
lect money still owed him by
the ranchers.
He said the Defense Ministry
questioned him at that time
about rumors of drug involve-
ment, which he denied. Klein
admitted, however, that drug
interests could have become
involved in the training pro-
gram after his departure from

A Test Of Glasnost
Much has changed in the Soviet Union since
Mikhail Gorbachev came to power. Official
Anti-Semitism is no longer tolerated, and
more Jews than ever are being permitted to
leave the country. But behind the silver cloud
there is a dark lining. A recent statement by
the 'Anti-Zionist Committee of the Soviet
Public' provides a chilling reminder that all is
not well in the Soviet Union.
The statement, distributed by the Tass news
agency, attacked efforts by Soviet Jews to
establish a Zionist movement and to 'Israelize'
While Soviet officials have claimed that the
Committee has no official standing, the Tass
report gives the Anti-Zionists a public forum
for its racial slander.
The true test of Gorbachev's reforms will be
how far he distances the Soviet government
from the repression and overt anti-Semitism
of the past. We would welcome a public
repudiation by Gorbachev of the 'Anti-Zionist
Committee' and any other anti-Semitic activi-
80 Years Young
The nation's oldest Zionist youth group
celebrated its 80th birthday last month, but it
shows no signs of slowing down. Young Judea,
which was formed in immigrant neighbor-
hoods throughout the United States at the
turn of the century, has served for eight
decades as a training ground for young leader-
At a time when the forces of secularism and
assimilation exert a powerful grip on our
youth, Young Judea provides a welcome anti-
dote. The group, which is sponsored by Hadas-
sah, conducts educational and leadership
development programs through local clubs
and summer camps across the country. Best
wishes, Young Judea.

Rights Panel Targets Israel
GENEVA, (JTA) Arab countries have mounted an
all-out diplomatic attack against Israel here during the
annual session of the U.N. Human Rights Subcommission
on the Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of
The Arab nations accuse Israel of violating the human
rights of Palestinians and of even exterminating them.
Although human-rights violations in Lebanon and China
also have been discussed, Israel remains the principal
target of the proceedings.
The subcommission studies human-rights violations and
recommends action to the U.N. Commission on Human
Rights. Its annual session opened Aug. 7 and will continue
to Sept. 1.
The level of discourse was exemplified by a Syrian
representative's bold assertion last week that "everybody
knows" that "Zionism is closely related to neo-Nazism."
The Auschwitz Convent: An Update
(Copyright 1989.
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.)
NEW YORK The latest
statement by Cardinal Fran-
ciszek Macharski, archbishop
of Krakow, seemed ominous.
He said that in light of the
"aggression" against the Car-
melite nuns in the Auschwitz
convent, it has become an
"impossibility" to move for-
ward in building the new con-
vent in the planned interreligi-
ous center some 500 yards
away from the grounds of Aus-
If that were the case, that
would constitute a serious
violation of the written agree-
ment signed by Cardinal
Macharski and three other car-
dinals in Geneva in 1987.
That agreement, joined in by
several European Jewish lead-
ers, provided for the removal
of the Carmelite convent away
from Auschwitz and the build-
ing of a new convent in 1990
on land already purchased for
the new center.
Troubled by this reversal, I
spoke last week with Cardinal
Macharski's personal aide,
Father Stanislav Musial, in
Warm and friendly, he went
out of his way to assure me
that the cardinal's statement
did not constitute a "break" or
a "rupture" with the Jewish
"It was a temporary inter-
ruption," he said, provoked by
the "invasion" of the convent
by several self-appointed Jew-
ish representatives from New
That incident, involving the
climbing over the fence and
onto the porch of the convent,
violated the Catholic feeling
about the sanctity of their con-
vents and was perceived as a
threat to the lives of their
contemplative nuns.
Carmelites, an order that
practices silence, do not
engage in dialogue with outsid-
ers, and speak when they have
to only through an iron grill.
Jews have justifiably reacted
with anger over the insensitiv-
ity of the Carmelite in building
their convent on the grounds
of Auschwitz. At the same
time, Polish Catholics have
reacted fiercely to the Jewish
entry into their holy convent.
That insensitivity on both
sides far more serious on the
part of the Polish violation of
Auschwitz' meaning to Jews
must come to an end before we
are locked into a cycle of
"reciprocal hostility." We are
now heavily engaged in trying
to break that cycle on all sides.

In Honor Of Mickey Leland
To the Editor:
America lost a fine man
when it lost Congressman Mic-
key Leland. As one privileged
to be touched by his intelli-
gence and charisma. I sense
the loss more than intuitively.
Embodying the highest prin-
ciples America has to teach,
this man was dedicated to his
fellow human beings. Nothing
mattered but doing right by
The bonds between Blacks
and Jews held a keen interest
and high place on Mr. Leland's
agenda. Blacks and Jews lost a
special friend.
We grieve with his widow,
his little child, and his soon to
be born child. We pledge to
carry on his work.

Friedman Is A Veteran Israel-Basher
To the Editor:
It appears that Thomas
Friedman, The New York
Times correspondent, has
pulled the wool over the eyes
of Abraham Foxman of the
Anti-Defamation League.
Foxman (Floridian, July 28)
describes Friedman's new
book From Beirut to Jerusa-
lem, as "the story of a young
American Jew coming to
terms with the reality of Israel
and the Mideast as he experi-
ences it and as contrasted with
the idealistic image and beliefs
of his adolescence." It is noth-
ing of the sort.
Thomas Friedman would
like Foxman and the rest of
the reading public to believe
that he was pro-Israel until he
went to the Mideast as a repor-
ter and suddenly "discovered"
the "reality" that Israel has
blemishes. Thus Friedman
manages to blame Israel for
his own anti-Israel reporting.
But the truth is that Thomas
Friedman was an outspoken
critic of Israel many years
before he went off to Beirut
and Jerusalem as a journalist.
Back in 1974-1975, as a stu-
dent at Brandeis University,
Friedman as one of the leaders
of a far-left, anti-Israel campus
organization called the "Mid-
east Peace Group." He and
other leaders of the group
signed an "open letter,'7 pub-
lished in The Brandeis Justice
on November 12, 1974, which
demanded that Israel make
concessions to the PLO and
blasted American Jewry for
opposing Yasser Arafat's
speech at the UN.
In other words, Friedman
was not a supporter of Israel
who went to the Middle East
and became disillusioned; he is
a veteran Israel-basher who
uses the columns of The New
York Times to puruse the
same anti-Israel agenda that
he was promoting back in the

Sofaer were the status of the
8-month-old U.S. dialogue
with the PLO and the anti-
Israel political program
adopted earlier this month by
Arafat's Al Fatah branch of
the PLO.
Prior to the State Depart-
ment session, the Jewish rep-
resentatives met at the Swiss
Embassy with the deputy chief
of mission, Christian Blicken-
storfer, and legal counselor
Kurt Hoechner to discuss
Switzerland's handling of an
application filed by the PLO
last month to sign onto the
Geneva Conventions.
Switzerland is the adminis-
tering country for the Geneva
Conventions, which are a ser-
ies of international treaties
first signed in 1864 that cover,
among other things, the treat-
ment of prisoners of war,
those wounded or killed in
battle, as well as civilians
under military occupation.
Switzerland is required to
inform all signatory nations in
writing when a state asks to
adhere to the conventions.
Normally, states seeking to
sign on are automatically
In May, Switzerland rejected
the PLO's first application,
arguing that it was incorrectly
filed. But the latest one, filed
n July, has been deemed
Nevertheless, Blickenstorfer
said Tuesday that Switzerland

cannot" become a party to the
accords, because it is not a
U.S. Jews Denounce PLO Bid
The Geneva-based Interna-
tional Committee of the Red
Cross, which helps implement
the treaty and which receives
U.S. funds, is supporting the
PLO's bid.
While U.S. officials have not
said they would reduce U.S.
contributions to the ICRC
should the PLO become a
party to the treaty, there may
be an "implicit" threat, said
Jess Hordes, Washington rep-
resentative of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
A well-placed State Depart-
ment official denied any
implicit or explicit threat to
cut off funds, but added, "Peo-
ple can't help be aware" of the
possible consequences of
including the PLO.
The U.S. government has
actively fought the PLO's
efforts to join several other
international bodies, including
the World Health Organization
and the United Nations Educa-
tional, Scientific and Cultural
Organization. Its threat to cut
off funds to the health body is
credited with pressuring the
agency to postpone considera-
tion of admitting the PLO this

No application has yet been
filed, and administration offi-
cials will not publicly discuss
visa cases until an application
has been granted or denied.
The American Jewish offi-
cials expressed concern that if
Arafat were allowed to enter
the country, he would be able
to go on a speaking tour
around the United States or
even be invited to meet with
President Bush or Secretary of
State James Baker.
Two weeks ago, Jewish lead-
ers told Bush that they oppose
"in principle" granting a visa
for Arafat to speak at the
United Nations, one of six
Jewish leaders at that White
House meeting has confirmed.
Arafat lat received a U.S.
visa in 1974, when he
addressed the U.N. General
Assembly, reportedly with a
pistol strapped to his side.
Last year, George Shultz,
who was secretary of state at
the time, rejected Arafat's
application to make a return
appearance to the world body,
on the grounds that Arafat has
overseen PLO elements that

Reports Of Death Exaggerated
JERUSALEM (JTA) Shimon Agranat, former presi-
dent of Israel's High Court of Justice, woke up Thursday
morning to read in Ha'aretz that he was dead at age 83.
Agranat himself took the news fairly well. Borrowing the
famous Mark Twain line, he said, "The news of my death is
premature." By then, Ha'aretz's managing editor had
telephoned with profuse apologies.

Women Of The
Wall Suffer
Legal Setback
group of women that has been
trying to conduct prayer ser-
vices at the Western Wall suf-
fered a legal setback Monday.
Israel's High Court of Jus-
tice ruled that the group,
known as Women of the Wall,
cannot chant prayers aloud at
the holy site until the court
holds a final hearing on the
case on Dec. 27.
In the ruling, the court
rejected the women's applica-
tion for an order instructing
the Ministry of Religious
Affairs and the rabbi in charge
of the Wall to allow the women
to pray together undisturbed.
Instead, the court ordered
that they pray "according to
the customs of the site" as
determined by Rabbi Yehuda
Getz, the rabbi in charge there.
Getz strongly opposes the
women's activities and had
petitioned the court, contend-
ing that the women's chanting
of prayers was disruptive to
worship at the site.
Following Orthodox religi-
ous tradition, the plaza in front
of the Wall is divided into
separate men's and women's
sections. While men conduct
group prayer services in their
section, prayer in the women's
section customarily is private
and silent.
The women's prayer group
was formed last December, ft
began holding monthly prayer
sessions on Rosh Hodesh, com-
plete with Torah readings and
vocal chantings of the Hallel
and other musical sections of
the service.
The prayer sessions trig-
gered vociferous and violent
opposition from the ultra-
Orthodox, both male and
female. On more than one
occasion, the women were bod-
ily removed from the site by
female ushers hired by the
Religious Affairs Ministry.
