Israeli Jurist Tells Rights Assembly of E. European Bigots
tr,

MONTREAL (JTA) — Justice
Haim Cohn of Israel told the
World Assembly for Human Rights
here Tuesday that ethnic and reli-
gious minorities were suffering
persecution in the Soviet Union
and certain other Eastern Euro-
pean countries.
He urged the assembly, a group
of experts in the field of human
rights participating in their indi-
vidual capacities rather than as
representatives of governments or
organizations, to seek action to
safeguard the rights of ethnic
groups. The Israeli Supreme Court
justice stressed the need to find
means of enforcing respect for
human rights.

FOR A

PROUD

Commitment to Their

JEWISH HERITAGE

Sidney Liskofsky of the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee supported
the position taken by Justice Cohn
and urged the assembly to work
for adoption by the United Nations
of the pending convention on the
elimination of all forms of religious
intolerance in as close to its pre-
sent form as possible.
Dr. William Korey, director of
the United Nations office of Bnai
Brith, raised before the assembly
the threat to the Subcommission
on Prevention of Discrimination
and Protection of Minorities of
loss of autonomy under pending
proposals to modify the form of
the body of experts. He proposed
that the assembly call upon the
forthcoming human rights con-
ference in Teheran to protect the
integrity, autonomy and indepen-
dence of this agency.
Rev, M. L. Perlzweig of the
World Jewish Congress presented
a detailed proposal for a sv -l- m
under which individuals could sub-
mit petitions to the United Nations.
Recognized nongovernmental or-
ganizations would be authorized to
present complaints and petitions
to a committee of jurists who
would seek satisfaction for the
complaint or, failing that, pass the
problem on to the appropriate UN
agency.

ATTORNEY AT LAW

"I do," says Mr. Kelman
"because I want Judaism
to survive. Because I want
my children to develop
into committed Jews, who
will insure the continua-
tion of Judaism, I believe
in giving them the intens-
ive Jewish education sup-
plied only by the Day
School or Yeshiva. Be-
cause I want the best in
both secular and religious
training for my children,
I am sending them to the
Akiva Hebrew Day School."

WASHINGTON, D.C. (JTA) —
Officials of the Defense and State
departments were in agreement
that the shipment of United States
arms to Jordan would proceed in
"the very near future" despite the
activities of Jordanian-based ter-
rorists and Israel's push into , Jor-
dan March 21 to smash the terror-
ist bases. State Department spokes-
man Robert J. McCloskey said
that arms negotiations with Jordan
"have reached an advanced state
but there is no final agreement
yet."
McCloskey said that eruption of
fighting between Jordan and Israel
did not affect U.S. policy toward.
Jordan in connection with its corn-
mitment to maintain a military bal-
ance. His view was sustained by
authoritative sources which said
that the American weapons repre-
sented no real threat to Israel but
could prevent the overthrow of
King Hussein and the emergence
of a radical Arab regime in Jordan.
The United States, Britain and
the Soviet Union were in accord
this week in their condemnation of
the Israeli military action to elimi-
nate bases on the east bank of
the Jordan River from which Arab
guerrillas have been conducting
terrorist activities against Israel
and Israeli-held territories, but the
three powers differed in the de-
gree of their condemnation.
A group of 24 Democratic and
Republican Representatives joined
with Rep. Seymour Halpern, New
York Republican, in co-sponsoring
a resolution to withhold resump-
tion of diplomatic relations and
economic aid from Egypt until
President Nasser entered into
peace talks with Israel and also
met other conditions.

Goldmann Sees Hope
Fading for M.E. Peace

NEW YORK (JTA) — Dr.
Nahum Goldmann, president of the
World Jewish Congress, told the
Conference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations
Tuesday that hopes 2or an early
Israeli-Arab settlement were fading
and that the Mideast problem
might be back on the United Na-
tions Security Council agenda next
month.
He added that world Jewry
"must remain mobilized in the face
of an international political situa-
tion fraught with difficulty for Is-
rael."
In a review of European prob-
lems, he said little improvement
could be expected in regard to
maintenance of Jewish identity
and development of a Jewish cul-
tural and religious life by Soviet
Jews as long as present Soviet-
Israel relations remained un-
changed.

He declared that the "anti-
Semitic" propaganda drive in
Poland must be condemned
though the Polish Jewish popula-
tion was small and the danger of
physical attack against the Jew-
ish community was minimal. In
other East European countries,
he added, the position of the
Jewish communities remained
unchanged, although some liber-
alization of government policy
could now be expected in Czecho-
slovakia.
He also urged that "everything
should be done to rescue" the few
thousand Jews left in Egypt, Syria
and Lebanon, saying those Jews
were in "permanent danger" as
long as the Arab-Israel conflict
continued.

TEL AVIV — The sum of 8,000,-

(CC pounds ($2,300,000) may pre-
vent classes from resuming at Tel
Aviv University after the Pass-
over recess.
The sum represents the differ-
ence between the 20,000,000 pounds
($5,700,000) that the government
is willing to allocate to the uni-
versity and the 28,000,000 pounds
($8,000,000) that the university has
asked. The university's govern-
ing board Monday night authorized
the rector to suspend classes after
Passover unless the government
increases its allocation. The uni-
versity's total budget for the year
is 40,000,000 pounds ($11,000,000).
