54 Are Sentenced to Prison in Tunisia for Joining in Anti-Jewish Rioting

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

PARIS—One man was sentenced
to a prison term of 20 years at
forced hard labor, and 53 others ,
received terms ranging up to 151
years at the conclusion of a four-
day trial in Tunis Monday on ,
charges of participating in anti-
Jewish riots June 5, the day war
broke out between the Arab states
and Israel.

The 20-year sentence was given
Mohamed ben Janet, 20, a theo-
logical student whom the police
charged with leading the riot. In
the disturbances, a synagogue was
burned down in the capital of
Tunis and many shops owned by
Jews were looted. The rioters also
set fire to the British Embassy m
Tunis and smashed windows in the
United States Embassy.

for tourism, the Times also repor-
ted. People came to the middle
East mainly to see Damascus and

Jerusalem, and now can go directly
to the latter without going through
Lebanon. Lebanon needed a quiet
period to deal with economic prob-
lems before the June war, which
has proved to be a great "blow to
Lebanons
economy,
the Times
reported.
Meanwhile, in Geneva, the
World Jewish Congress appealed
to United Nations Secretary-
General U Thant to take steps,
under a Security Council resolu-
tion regarding wartime treat-
ment of civilians, to help im-
prove the situation of Jews in

All of the defendants pleaded
guilty, but defense counsel main-
tained there was no proof of their
participation in or leadership of
the
riots. However,
they were
judged by the court on the basis
of police reports. Ben Janet was
described by the prosecution as a
man "known for his political ideas
and his opposition to the Tunisian
regime." He insisted that he had
been only an "observer" during
the rioting. All of the defendants
were under :10 years of age, and
five were under 17.
A 54)-year-old . Jewish woman,
Mrs. Anna Zafrani, was killed in
Casablanca last week, in the third
such killing in Morocco since the
Arab-Israel war in June. The in-
cident increased the anxiety of
Moroccan Jews, who have been
departing in greater frequency to
France. The opposition Istiolzil
Party has been continuing its anti-
Jcwish campaign.
The London times reported
today from Beirut that armored
cars are still posted on the street
corners of the Jewish quarter
where Jews have been largely
unaffected during the June war
and the Arab bitterness at Israel's
victory-, "much to the credit of the
Lebanese authorities." Armored
cars also are still posted at the
British and American Embassies.
The Arab loss of old Jerusalem
was a "staggering setback" to
Lebanon's attraction as a center

N.Y. Court Upholds
Showman Rose's Will

NEW YORK — New York surro-
gate court ruled that the late show-
man, Billy Rose, was within his
rights to leave the bulk of his
estate, estimated at between $25-
and $50,000,000,000 to a founda-
tion hearing his name in an effort
to avoid taxes on his estate.
The will was contested by Rose's
sister, Mrs. Miriam Stern, who
claimed that Rose's attempt to in-
sure the tax deductability of chari-
table bequests was against public
policy.
Surrogate Judge S. Samuel
DiFalco, in his opinion, said that
the Billy Rose Foundation was
established in 1958 as a trust
with religious, charitable and
educational purposes, and that
the New York attorney general
has raised no question as to the
validity of the gifts made in the
will.
Billy Rose died in 1966.

The appeal was sent by Dr.
Maurice L. Perlzweig, the WJC's
director of international affairs. He
called attention to a previous letter
on the same issue sent last June
16. Since then, Dr. Perlzweig
noted, there has been no improve-
ment in the situation affecting the
Jewish communities in the three
Arab countries.
"Ancient Jewish communities
are being subjected to terror and

intimidation," the WJC reported.

"There have been many Jewish
victims' of physical violence and
assault, and hundreds have been •
imprisoned without any charge
under conditions of revolting bar-
barism."
All humanitarian efforts to amel-
iorate the situation, Dr. Perlzweig
informed Thant, have been frus-
trated, including efforts to visit
prisoners and evacuate them from
the Arab lands. "These defenseless
people," the WJC representative

efforts by the Canadian govern-
ment to do anything about the
plight of Jewish nationals of Arab
countries.
He cited previous efforts "to al-
leviate the conditions of other Jew-
ish communities which have come
under pressure" and added he
would "not hestitate to take such
action if it appears to be desirable
and useful. I wish to assure you
that if any opportunity arises for
me to raise this matter in a con-
structive context, perhaps through
contacts at the United Nations, I
shall certainly do what I can."
