immunity Relations Council to Hold 6th Annual Mideast Conference
-Now that the war in Lebanon
over, the hard political
pvering begins," stated
_j Gold, chairman of the Is-
. Task Force of the Com-
nity Relations Council.
"United States-Israel relations
rthe last several months have
strained. President Rea-
l's Peace Plan rejected by the
government continues to
i subject of much debate
b within Israel and among the
aican Jewish community,"
i recent days there have been
ts of a decline of congres-
J and public support for Is-

coverage of the war. Many

tempting to rebuild the homes of
the refugees before the onset of
winter. Unfortunately, the Leba-
nese government, who desires
that the refugees leave their
country, and UNRWA, responsi-
ble for the rebuilding and having
many PLO sympathizers, have
refused to cooperate. If this
situation is not resolved, is Israel
in for another negative public re-
lations campaign when the tele-
vision cameras focus on the
shivering Palestinian children?
To address these issues from
both the Israeli and American
perspectives the Israel Task
Force of the Community Rela-
tions Council will present the
Minister of Information of the
State of Israel, the Honorable
Harry Hurwitz, and Mr. Gordon
B. Zacks, nationally recognized
Jewish leader, to keynote the
Sixth Annual Mideast Con-
ference. The Conference will be
held on Sunday evening, Nov. 21,
7:30 p.m., at Temple Beth El's
Freed Sanctuary; 2815 North
Flagler Drive. West Palm Beach.
The entire community is invited
to attend and there is no charge
for admission.
Harry Hurwitz formally served
as Adviser to Prime Minister
Menachem Begin in Jerusalem.
In 1978 he made aliyah from
South Africa, where he was for
many years one of the leaders of
the South African Jewish com-
munity, editor of a leading week-
ly publication "The Jewish
Herald," and a TV commentator
on International Affairs.
Mr. Gordon Zacks presently
serves on the national boards of
the American Israel Public Af-
fairs Committee (AIPAC), Cen-
ter for Strategic and Interna-
tional Studies, American Jewish
Committee, and the Zionist Or-
ganization of America.

News in Brief
Arens Questions U.S.'Jump'
On Settlement Issue
fly JTA Report
dor Moshe Arena of Israel, in an
hour-long meeting with Secretary
of State George Shultz, ques-
tioned the timing of a Reagan
Administration public denuncia-
tion of Israel's West Bank Settle-
ment policy.
Arena, who met with Shultz
last Thursday afternoon, asked
him why the State Department
had issued a statement earlier in
the day based on remarks by Is-
raeli Deputy Premier and Hous-
ing Minister David Levy that
five to eight new settlements
would be set up soon. Levy made
the remarks during a visit to the
West Bank.
The U.S. statement called the
announcement "unwelcome" and
charged that "Israel persists in a
pattern of activity which erodes
the confidence of all and most
particularly the Palestinians of
the West Bank and Gaza in the
possibilities for a just and fairly
negotiated outcome to the peace
process." President Reagan, in
the peace proposals for the Mid-
dle East he announced Sept. 1,
called for a freeze on settlements.
Arens pointed out that only
the Israeli Cabinet can decide on
new settlements and that no de-
cision has yet been made. The
Shultz-Arens meeting was chiefly
devoted to a discussion of the
situation in Lebanon and Egyp-
tian-Israeli rela'ions. the Israeli
envoy said.
Israeli Soldiers On
Trial for Assault
TEL AVIV Seven Israeli
soldiers went on trial before a
military court Monday on
charges of beating, assaulting
and humiliating Arab residents
of the West Bank last spring.
The defendants included an of-
ficer with the rank of Major,
three Sergeant-Majors the
highest rank of non-commis-
sioned officers and three en-
listed men. The charges against
them are based on depositions by
several members of the Peace
Now movement who were on re-
serve duty at the time.
According to the charge
sheets, four of the soldiers were
accused of clubbing, kicking and
punching Arab students who re-
quired hospital ization.

Arab Attempt to Oust
Israel Fails
PARIS An Arab-sponsored
attempt to oust Israel from the
International Telecommunica-
tions Union for its actions in
Lebanon this summer failed as
the sue-week meeting of the ITU
in Nairobi, Kenya concluded with
Israel remaining a member of the
United Nations technical agency.
The Arab-inspired resolution,
which sought to exclude Israel
from the UN agency "as long as
Israel does not fulfill its interna-
tional obligations," was thwarted
in part by the efforts of the Rea-
gan Administration.
New Rumania Rules
Make Exit Difficult
Agency Chairman Leon Dulzin
vowed to "fight with all our
strength" against newly promul-
gated regulations in Rumania
that threaten drastically to cur-
tail Jewish emigration from
there. "As we succeeded in the
past against the Russians, so too
we will succeed again," Dulzin
said in a sharp statement issued
in Jerusalem.
The new Rumanian rules re-
quire would-be emigrants to pay
back to the state, in hard cur-
rency, everything spent on them
over the years for health, educa-
tion and other state welfare cares.
According to top Israeli experts,
the regulation will mean in prac-
tice a very substantial sum in
dollars to be paid by each and
every Rumanian seeking to leave
the country.
Socialists Can't Agree
On Mideast Resolution
GENEVA The Socialist In-
ternational wound up a three-day
meeting in Basel unable to agree
on a final declaration on the Mid-
dle East. It decided, however, to
continue the discussion at its
next conference, scheduled to be
held in Sydney, Australia in
April, 1983.
The Basel meeting, neverthe-
less, adopted a report prepared
by former Prime Minister Mario
Soares of Portugal which was
considered balanced and likely to
be the basis for the discussions in
Australia next spring. The
Soares report, which stemmed
from visits by a Socialist Inter-
national delegation to Israel,
Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt last
summer, was accepted by the
Israeli delegation, headed by
Labor Party chairman Shimon
Peres, with minor modifications.

The Women's Division Board of Directors recently held an Open
Board Meeting. Participating in a panel presentation on the objectives
and goals of Women's Division were, seated left to right,Cynnie List,

French Anti-Semitic
Incidents Reported
PARIS Swastikas and anti-
Semitic slogans were daubed on
Jewish-owned stores in the Paris
suburb of Garges-les-Gonesse
last week. Police said that nine
Jewish store owners filed com-
plaints last Friday after they
found their shop windows
marked with anti-Semitic slo-
gans. At the same time, a three-
foot-high swastika and the slo-
gan, "France for Frenchmen
only," were drawn on the walls of
the small city's underground
parking garage.
Several non-Jewish local po-
litical personalities also had then-
walls daubed with hostile slogans
and a workshop belonging to the
city's Socialist mayor was burned
down as a result of criminal
arson. There have been no arrests
up till now and police say they
have few clues in their investiga-
Accused Murderer Ordered
Back to Germany
TORONTO An order for the
extradition to West Germany of a
former gestapo officer accused of
the wartime murder of more than
11,000 Jews in occupied
Lithuania, the first Canadian ac-
tion to extradite a war criminal,
was issued here last Thursday
against Albert Helmut Rauca by
Chief Justice Gregory Evans of
the Ontario Supreme Court.
The reading of the order, to
send Rauca, 74, back to West
Germany to face trial on the war
crimes charges, took 30 minutes.
Justice Evans dismissed argu-
ments of Rauca's defense counsel
that Canada's new Charter of
Rights has a section which
guarantees that "every citizen of
Canada (has) the right to enter,
remain in and leave Canada."
The defense counsel did not, at
a hearing three weeks ago, chal-
lenge the evidence presented of
the killings of the Jews in Kovno,
relying on the contention that
trials of Canadian citizens should
be held not abroad but in Canada
under the War Crimes Act and
Geneva Convention.
Mitterrand Will Intercede
For Sharansky
PARIS President Francois
Mitterrand has promised to in-

behalf of Jewish Prisoner of Con-
science Anatoly Sharansky who

Government sources said that
Mitterrand was "deeply moved"
by the plea of Sharansky's
friends in France and also fully
realized the "symbolic im-

Gemayel wants to be well

formally recognize Israel. But
even without a peace treaty there
is no insuperable problem about
the security guarantees that
Israel has a right to expect. Even
Syria has signed a "disengage-
ment" agreement with Israel.
The main issue in Lebanon is
whether its private armies can
nowl be formed into an effective
national army serving national
purposes. If so, then the
American, French and Italian
troops, perhaps joined by others,
could remain for a time to lend a
hand. If not, no international
force can be effective; none will
put itself in the path of battling
warlords, and Israel will never

of Americans or Italians to take
So what the Lebanese do is
vastly more important than what
they have the courage to say. But

time for other moderate Arabs to

ment of the Middle East.
Members of the Jewish Federation board of dkec-

No Parade
Israel Cools Military
Display Plan Slated For
Independence Day
JERUSALEM (JTA) The government has
dropped the idea of a military parade to mark the 35th an-
niversary of Israel's independence next April 18. The min-
isterial ceremonials committee decided against one, and
the full Cabinet is certain to agree.
THE MATTER generated controversy recently when
Haaretz published a report that Premier Menachem Begin
wanted a parade as a tribute to the armed forces and to
boost public morale. But sources close to Begin are letting
it be known that the Premier does not particularly favor
the idea. Critics in the opposition Labor Party warned
that a diplay of armed might would make Israel vulnera-
ble to charges of militarism.
Treasury officials cited the huge cost about a half
billion Shekels. But government sources insisted that the
idea of a parade was not dropped because of political
pressure. They admitted that a parade had been consider-
ed and the army orderred to make a preliminary survey of
possible routes through Jerusalem.
BUT THIS WAS only because the Labor-led govern-
ment in 1968 had decided to hold an Independence Day
Parade every five years and 1983 would be the fifth year in
the cycle, they said.
Begin had suggested a parade five years ago but re-
treated in face of public criticism. He was quoted recently
as blaming the Labor opposition for creating "an atmos-
phere" in which "love and admiration" for the armed

France for Frenchmen
Believe it or not, new anti-Semitic incidents axe
being reported in Paris. As if they haven't had
enough of them, and as if the French police don't
seem to be sufficiently baffled so as not to be able to
apprehend anybody, now Jewish Parisians in the
suburb of Garges-les-Gonesse are finding their shops
marked with huge hate-filled slogans, among them,
" France for Frenchmen only."
We've got an idea. Next war the French
1 quit fighting for their freedom, why don't we
| Americans just let them lose their liberte, egatite,
| fraternite instead of rescuing them from their own
I philosophical malaise and returning them to the
| undisputed ownership of gay Paree so that they can
j start lecturing us forever more about food, wine,
I morality and the like?
(That'll really leave France for Frenchmen only
or for any other country that just happens along
and invades.
A Forgotten Fact
You'd have to be hard-pressed to recall any
polite inquiries made of that great libertarian,
President Amin Gemayel of Lebanon, when he was
here visiting the other week, telling everybody that
Israel better get out first and fast.
No one asked Gemayel, for starters if nothing
else, hey how come his Christian Phalangists went
into those Palestinian camps and massacred all those
innocent Palestinians?
Hey, Mr. President, how come you don't have
an official Commission of Inquiry in which you hold
an honest investigation into this massacre where all
those lives were lost in the name of revenge for the
assassination of your dear departed brother, who was
also a great libertarian?
Fact is, no one in Washington did anything but
listen in an aura of being bewitched to all of the items
he brought along on a shopping list of assistance for
his country.
The hypocrites on Capitol Hill and in the White
House wouldn't, just for the heck of it, remember an
eentsy, weentsy fact, now would they? And that is
that both Gemayels would still be fighting Yasir
Arafat Wild West style on the streets of Beirut (and
losing) if Israel hadn't come by to give them back
their country in the first place.
Our Readers Write
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
About the middle of Septem-
ber, an unusual event took place
at the Vatican that sent shock
waves throughout the civilized
world. Pope Paul granted a spe-
cial audience to Yasir Arafat
equating him as a head of state,
giving him dignity and respect
that is generally bestowed on a
man of peace and honor.
Yasir Arafat, as chairman of
the PLO, is well known to the
world as a brutal terrorist. Under
his guidance, a great many inno-
cent men, women, and children
have been slaughtered. He has
the audacity to call his indis-
criminate killing of innocent peo-
ple a battle for a Palestinian
The real fact is that his method
has harmed the Palestinian'peo-
ple, rather than helped then?
1 hate to question the Pope's
motives. I always had the highest
regard and admiration for him. I
do hope that this is not a carry-
over of his childhood training in
Poland where anti-Semitism was
the motivating spirit.
With about 20 Arab nations
and over a million square miles of
territory, many of the nations
sparsely-populated, with billions
of dollars in their treasury, would
it not be the human thing to set-
tle the 400,000 refugees in the
countries, instead of letting them

Evangelical Support for Israel Urged
Dr. Harold M. Jacobs, president of the
National Council of Young Israel, is continuing
his effort to elicit support for Israel from
Christian Evangelical leaders, while pressing
Catholic representatives for a response to
criticism of Pope John Paul's recent meeting with
Yasir Arafat in Rome.
As a result of the contacts of the Young Israel
movement, strong positive statements in support
of Israel have been forthcoming from such Evan-
gical Christian leaders as Albert H. Chubb, presi-
dent and general manager of a central Florida re-
ligious radio'station, and other prominent reli-
gious broadcasters from across the country.
At a recent meeting of Young Israel national
delegates, Doug Krieger, of the TAV Evangelical
ministries, issued a blistering statement con-
demning Pope John Paul's meeting with Arafat
on religious and moral grounds.

Ben Gurion Airport. The chil-
dren cling to their elders, over-
awed and overwhelmed, their
eyes bright and curious. The
adults move slowly forward,
glowing with messianic fervor,
and half-blinded by tears of
joy and thanksgiving they
kneel down to kiss the soil of Is-
There is something achingly
familiar about the scene. Israel is
gathering her exiles. Refugees are
coming home, clutching all they
possess in tightly-wrapped
It is not 1948 or 1951 or even
1956. It is now. The Jews arriv-
ing are from Ethiopia. They are
called Falashas, and they are
"This is a different kind of
aliyah," points out a Jewish
Agency official. "These olim need
to compensate for a gap of
several centuries, in terms of
modern living standards. They
have lived until now in simple
huts with earthen floors, in 490
scattered villages. Most have
never seen a telephone, a super-
market, or a bank. Most have
never used a refrigerator, a stove,
a toilet or even a faucet. Their
children have never even played
with toys before .
"Yes, they are willing, even
eager to learn, to adapt. It is a
slower process than with most
olim, and more costly, but we feel
it is working. And while we guide
them, we're very careful to be
sure that, in the process, they
don't abandon their own customs
and culture."
The leap into the 20th century,
aided and cushioned by the Jew-
ish Agency's years of experience
in helping new immigrants ad-
just, is one last hurdle for the
Falashas. Their first was a 110-
year battle to be accepted as
Jews among Jews.
When they were "discovered"
by European Jewish travelers in
ten 18608, and their contact with
the modern world began, Jewish
scholars embarked on a century-
long debate over the Jewishness
of the Falashas.
One tradition traces their
origins back to Menelik, the re-
puted son of King Solomon and
the Queen of Sheba. Other
theories see them as descended
from the tribe of Dan, or as an
African tribe converted by Jews
arriving in the area from south-
ern Arabia.
Falashas consider that they
have always been Jews. While
the controversy continued, they
dreamed of returning to Eretz Is-
rael, believing their return would
be followed by the coming of the
Messiah. In 1862, for example,
there was the largest of a series of
attempts to reach Jerusalem a
journey made by foot, on which
many of the pilgrams died.
In the 1950s, while their status
had still not been clarified, the

Jewish Agency, supported by the
United Jewish Appeal, was
working to help the Falashas. In
1954, the agency's Torah Educa-
tion Department began to organ-
ize Jewish schooling in Ethiopia.
Falasha youngsters were also
brought to Youth Aliyah villages
in Israel for two years to be
trained as teachers.
The Falashas' status question
was finally resolved only in 1973
when Israel's Chief Rabbis
Ovadia Yosef and Shlomo Goren
declared that they are indis-
putably Jews.
However, emigration was
strictly forbidden both during the
reign of Emperor Haile Selassie
and under the current Marxist
regime, which seized power in
1974. But Falashas yearn to live
in Israel, and despite the difficul-
ties, some of them are succeed-
For those who make it, arrival
in Israel brings to an end years of
being caught in the middle of
revolution, warfare, and chaos in
Ethiopia. Some have spent
months in vast soulless refugee
camps in areas around Ethiopia,
after their villages were des-
troyed and their crops burned in
the fighting. They come to Israel
hungry, frightened, and often ill
but in joy, with gratitude, and
an eagerness to be part of their
new country.
One family, for example, final-
ly reached Israel late one night
more than a year ago. They were
met by Jewish Agency staff, who
took them to an absorption cen-
ter in Beersheba. Veteran
Falasha immigrants who speak
their native Amharic welcomed
them; they ate a light meal and
were then shown into a large
store room full of clothing of all
sizes, styles and colors, gifts from
the people of Beersheba.
They chose what they wanted
to wear. Their four-year-old took

The Ten L,ost CJarts of Israel?
The Highland Scots, so the story goes, have laid claim to being
dependents of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. Whether they really are or
we II never know. But one thing we do know for sure is that the first
Jews of modern times came to Scotland in the 1600's, found it much
to their liking, and settled there.
Once established, the settlers undoubtedly discovered one of
bcotland s most famous pleasures, J&B Rare Scotch. Carefully
blended from a selection of the finest scotches, J&B has such a
smoothness and subtlety that it can truly be said to whisper. No
wonder it s become the favorite scotch here in America. Serve
J<*b to your tribe, clan or mishpocha. One delightful sip will see
the start of a tradition that will never be lost.

Browsing in Books
In his autobiography, Mark
Twain wrote that humur had a
life expectancy of only thirty
years. Yet Sholom Aleichem's
writing have retained their
vitality to such an extent that
even a minor work like
Marienbad continues to sparkle
with wit and comic situations.
Orginally serialized in the
Yiddish press in 1911, it com-
prises part of the volume of the
author's collected workes entitled
Zumer-Lebn (Summer Life).
. Sholom Aleichem was obliged
for health reasons to spend a
good deal of time at various spas
and health resorts. Here he ob-
served the goings-on of nouveau
riche urban Jews and their social
climbing vines. In Marienbad he
chose the epistolary medium a
literary form which he had per-
fected in his celebrated Mena-
ehew Mendi stories to depict
the antics of Warsaw Jews from
the Nalevkis, the central Jewish
business thoroughfare of
Warsaw. Marienbad, of course, is
the resort town famous for its
mineral waters.
"You think Marienbad is just
Marienbad?" asks Belzi
Kurlander in her letter to her
husband who has stayed home to
mind his business on the
Nalevkis. "Marienbad is Ber-
dichev, Marienbad is Warsaw,
Marienbad is the Nalevkis." or,
as Belti's husband Sholom puts
it: "Should someone in
Marienbad' sneeze, someone in
the Nalevkis will say "God bless

the Lebanese position that nego-
tiations with Israel should be
conducted at the liaison officers
level comprising military com-
missions, with the U.S. acting as
mediator. Israel insists on direct
talks by a joint political-military
that the end of belligerency
between the two countries must
be the first topic on the agenda.
The Israelis intend to raise other
political issues of principle which
they insist must be discussed at a
senior political level, not between
military officers.
Those issues would include the
ways and means to ensure that
total withdrawal of all foreign
forces from Lebanon and security
arrangements to prevent them
from ever returning. Israel would
leave details of security arrange-
ments in south Lebanon to the
end of the negotiating process.
In Lebanon, meanwhile, op-
position appears to be growing to
Israel's continued presence in the
country. Prime Minister Shafiq
al-Wazzan accused the Israelis of
"paralyzing government func-
tions" in the areas of Lebanon its
troops occupy. He also threat-
ened to strip the citizenship of
Lebanese officials and civilians in
cases of "collaboration with
from Beirut, al-Wazzan said the
Israeli occupying force was
trying "to subvert the local
administration and impose
normalization by interfering in
public affairs." He warned that
"People who deal with Israel and
thus harm the country could lose
their nationality."
Israelis are also upset with
Gemayel who returned to Beirut
from Morocco where he discussed
the possibility of enlarging the

to include Moroccan units. The

Italian and French troops and

not question "the honorable and
pacific intentions of the Pope."
"The Pope's hope," Wishner
continued, "for an 'equitable and
tasting solution of the Middle
East conflict' as his stated posi-
tion that such a solution should
'exclude recourse to arms and
violence of all kinds, especially
terrorism and reprisals,' are
shared by all persons of good will
seeking peace in that troubled re-
HOWEVER, Wishner added,
"We do strongly disagree regard-
ing the impact of the audience
with Mr. Arafat on popular
opinion and its widespread inter-
pretation as an act of legitimiza-
tion for the organization which he
heads an organization which
has claimed credit for the murder
of innocent civilians, including
Christians, Muslims, and Jews,
and which has never departed
from its stated aim of destroying
the sovereign State of Israel."
Wishner took the occasion of
his letter to Willeb rands to repeat
calls for recognition of the State
of Israel both by the Arabs
and by the Holy See. "We fer-
vently share the Pope's hope,"
Wishner wrote, "that an equita-
ble and lasting solution of the
Middle East conflict will soon be
reached and his affirmation that
the recognition of Israel by the
Arabs is a basic condition for the
construction of that peace.
"The logic of that important f*
affirmation by the Pope does i
argue, in our judgment, that the T
recognition of Israel by the Holy k
See would constitute a model of
moral courage and leadership k
that would advance the cause of
peace and coexistence between A
the Arab nations and Israel.
"We sincerely hope that such
Vatican recognition of Israel A
would be forthcoming in the not
too distant future." k

Balfour Declaration Party Stunned
The anniversary of the Bal
four Declaration usually
on occasion for warm frat-
ernization by Britain and
Israel, was marked here
. by a scalding Is-
rael riposte to the way
Britain has treated Israel
over recent events in. Leba-
A distinguished audience, in-
cluding several former British
Ambassadors and colonial offi-
cials, sat in stunned silence while
David Kimche, the British-born
director general of the Foreign
Ministry of Israel, described a
forgotten series of anti-Jewish
atrocities which had been carried
out 40 years ago in Arab coun-
tries ruled by Britain and in some
of which British forces had taken
KIMCHE, addressing the
Royal Institute of International
Affairs, made only a passing ref-
erence to Lord Balfour's famouu
promise in 1917 of a Jewish na-
tional home in Palestine. Instead,
he concentrated on Britain's
subsequent colonial presence in
the Middle East to highlight the
"double standards" which a post-
colonial Britain and its media
were applying to the State of Is-
While emphasizing Israel's
horror over the Beirut refugee
camps massacres and her com-
mission of inquiry into them, he
noted that no such inquiries had
been made, and there had been no
wave of outrage, when Jews had
been massacred four decades
earlier in British-ruled Arab
The impact of his remarks was
reinforced by the scholarly and
mild manner in which they were
delivered Kimche is co-author
of one of the best accounts of the
1948 Israeli War of Indepen
dence. His older brother, Jon
Kimche, former editor of the
London Jewish Observer and
Middle East Review, was in the
audience, which also included Sir
Harold Beeley, former British
Ambassador to Egypt and one-
time adviser to Foreign Secretary
Ernest Bevin, as well as Lord
Marcus Sieff, present head of
Anglo-Jewry's leading Zionist
KIMCHE subsequently went
on to justify Israel's operations
in Lebanon saying that by
restoring that country's sover-
eignty and breaking the military
power of the Palestine Liberation
Organization, Israel had
strengthened the prospects of a
Middle East settlement.
Reaffirming Israel's commit-
ment to peace, he said the only
condition was that the next stage
of talks should be within the
framework of the Camp David
accords, and that Tarael would
welcome the inclusion of the Jor-
danians within the framework.
"Once the negotiations for the
withdrawal of foreign troops from
Lebanon come to an end, the test
will come for the future of the
peace process. We shall call for a
resumption of the autonomy
talks, we shall extend a hand to
Jordan to join them with no pre-
conditions," he said.
THE WARM applause which
greeted the end of this tense and
uncomfortable lecture seemed to
signify not merely the presence of
several sympathetic Jewish
listeners but that the speaker had
scored an important point with
the audience as a whole.
Kimche prefaced his reminders
about some British moments in
the Middle East by deploring
"the cascade of venom" which
had been directed towards Israel
after the Sabra and Shatila
camps massacres, regardless of
Israel's own horror of them and
the judicial inquiry which she es-
tablished. He then went on:
"Let me recall to you some'
comparatively recent incidents
which were received not only
without such feelings of outrage
(in Britain) but were not consid-
ered to be worthy (except in one
case) of even a cursory investiga-
tion while the press barely noted
THE FIRST example, he said,
"deals with the British army in
Iraq. In 1941, two British
columns advanced on Baghdad
from the south and from the
north. They entered Basra on
May 14 when Arab youths and
members of the Gurkha regime
embarked on a two-day rampage
of looting and sacking Jewish
shops and homes. Five days
later, Assyrian Christian Levies
attached to the British force did
likewise in Falluja.
"Meanwhile, the northern force
under General Clark had reached
the outskirts of Baghdad. The
pro-German regent fled, and an
armistice was concluded with the
Iraqi mayor of the city. The
regent returned on June 1. and
the British force remained en-
camped on the outskirts despite
warnings of troubles about to
"Geoffrey Warner, the most
recent historian of that cam-
paign, noted that instructions
from the Foreign Office had
halted the troops on the outskirts
while Iraqi troops and police
helped in the three-day massacre
which left some 500 Jewish men,
women and children dead, over a
thousand injured and some 1,300
Jewish shops and homes ran-
sacked and destroyed.
"THE KILLING was going on
within earshot of the British. We
have evidence that the Oriental
secretary at the Embassy begged
the Ambassador to intervene, but
he refused. Indeed, the full facts
were not reported by the British
Embassy to the Foreign Office
until seven weeks after the event.
There was no sense of outrage in
any non-Jewish quarter, and
there were no demands of an in-
quiry or for punishment of those
"The pattern was repeated in
Aden in December, 1947, when
some 70 Jews were slaughtered
and their homes and shops
looted, Kimche continued. "A
one-man inquiry appointed by
the Colonial Office evinced the
somewhat embarrassing evidence
that local Levies attached to the
British forces had directed their
fire almost exclusively on the
Jews who were under attack.
"Needless to say, no one sug-
gested that any responsibility
rested with any British official,
let alone the Labor government
which was the ultimate authority
that had sanctioned the use of the
Levies. The matter was hardly
reported, and there was no sign of
more than formalized distress
that Jews should have allowed
themselves to be killed."
said, a similar attack had taken
place two years previously, in
November, 1945, in Trinolitania
which was under British,
administration. Bhi
