Yemeni Indicted as Plotters on Nixon's Life

Teens in Poll Favor Interdating
. hness
but Assert Their Jewts


(Copyright 1968, JTA Inc.)

More than 75 per cent of teen-
age members of a Pittsburgh Jew-
ish Y polled in a comprehensive
study of their Jewish views felt it
was all right to date non-Jews,
and two-thirds reported they had
had such dates.
Of those parents who knew about
such interdating by their children,
the survey found nearly '70 per
- cent disapproved strongly and 16
per cent disapproved mildly.
The questionnaires were filled
out by 326 teen members of the
e Kaufman Center, repre-
senting about one-third of all teen
members of the Y. The data was
summarized by Earl Yaillen, Y-
IKC supervisor of staff develop-
About 12 per cent of the teen-
agers identified themselves as Or-
thodox, about 30 per cent Reform,
46 per cent Conservative, and the
rest listed themselves as not af-
filiated with any synagogue or in
the "don't know" category.
The majority of the young re-
spondents reported that they at-
tended religious services less than
once a month and that most of
their parents did not attend regu-
About 65 per cent of the teen-
agers listed High Holy Day at-
tendance as one of the practices
they considered essential to being
"a good Jew."
In a list of such practices, the
largest vote of approval — 84
per cent — was given to the
proposition that one must accept _
being a Jew and not try to hide
it. Almost 72 per cent voted for
the proposal that one must be-

lieve in a Divine Being, and al-
most two-thirds agreed that
one must know the fundament-
als of Judaism.
Leading a moral and ethical life
was cited by 62 per cent.
Orthodox teen-age support for
these proposals was substantially
above the averages for all of the
teen-agers, and Reform endorse-
ment was below the averages.
Slightly more than half agreed
that to be a good Jew, one should
gain respect of one's Christian
neighbors, and about the same
number 'listed membership in a
synagogue as essential. But marry-
ing within the faith was listed by
only 40 per cent.
Three-fourths of the Orthodox
teenagers regarded marriage with-
in the faith as essential, compared
with slightly more than half of the
Conservative youth and about 15
per cent of the Reform youngsters.
Proposals which received the
least support from the teen-agers
as being essential to being a good
Jew included working for equality
for all minority groups (24 per
cent); promoting general civic im-
provement, and support of all hu-
manitarian causes (about 20 per
cent each); observing the Jewish
dietary laws (10 per cent); and
contributing to Jewish philanthro-
pies (about 9 per cent).
A conflict emerged from find-
ings on attitudes toward Israel.
Less than 15 per cent listed
support of Israel as essential to
being a good Jew. When asked
to indicate what areas of Jew-
ish knowledge they would like
to learn more about, they listed
Israel and Zionism last.
But specifics indicated very dif-
ferent attitudes. Nearly 85 per
cent agreed that American Jews
should help to raise funds for Is-
rael, two-thirds agreed that Amer-
ican Jews should try to influence
the United States government to
help Israel, and nearly half agreed
that all American Jews should visit
Israel at least once.
Less than 2 per cent, however,
agreed that American Jews should
plan to settle in Israel.


The three Yemenis indicted in a plot to kill President-elect Nixon are shown ha custody in New Vitt.
They are 43-year-old Ahmad Namer (right, with policeman) and two sons, Abdo, 19, and (middle) Has-
sein, - 20. They're held on $25,000 bond each.

LONDON (JTA)—Egyptian news-
papers claimed Monday that the
arrest of three Yemeni Arabs in
New York Saturday night for al-
legedly plotting to assassinate
President-elect Richard M. Nixon
was part of a "Zionist" plot to dis-
credit the Arabs and turn Nixon
against them.
Cairo's semi-official newspaper
Al Abram alleged that the police
account was -"full of holes." The
newspaper Al Gumhoriya said the
charges against Ahmed Rageh
Namer, and his sons, Abdo and
Hussein, were brought by the po-
lice of New York which is "a den
of Zionism in America."
Al Abram said the alleged plot
against Nixon may have been de-
vised to hint to the next President
that "perhaps New York's 5,000,000
Jews denied you their votes but the
Arabs tried to murder you."
Al Ahram said that Yemen was
not directly involved in the Pales-
tine issue and that a plot against
Nixon was unlikely because he has
not taken office and his exact
Middle East policy was not as yet
known despite its generally pro-
Israel slant.
The three men were indicted on
four counts by a Brooklyn grand
jury Wednesday after two days of
testimony, chiefly by an informant
who told police he was asked to be
the trigger man in the assassina-
The trio was charged with con-
spiracy, criminal solicitation and
two counts of possession of dan-
gerous weapons. They pleaded in-
•nocent. Their defense attorney is
Joseph Levine.
