El Fatah Fund Raisers a Flop

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Two
members of El Fatah, the Pales-
tinian commando organization, are
touring the United States and Can-
ada in an effort to raise money
from Arab-Americans aild sym-
pathy for their cause among the
general population, Washington
Post correspondent George Lard-
ner Jr. reported from Los Angeles.
They are having scant success
obtaining funds from sympathetic
but generally tight-fisted Arab-
Americans, most of whom are of
Lebanese or Syrian descent, Lard-
ner wrote. Arab-Americans are

`Babi Yar' Manuscript
in Jerusalem Library

JERUSALEM (JTA) — The ori-
ginal manuscript of the famed
poem "Babi Yar" by Yevgeni
Yevtushenko has been deposited
for safe-keeping with the Jewish
National and University Library
here by the man who purchased it
recently from a London gallery for
$7,600.
The poem described the murder
of Russian Jews in the Babi Yar
ravine in the Ukraine by the Nazis
during World War II and protested
the manner in which"their deaths
were subsequently ignored and for-
gotten by their fellow countrymen.
The poem bought fame to its
author when it was first published
in a Soviet literary magazine in
1967.
It will be put on public display
shortly.

quarters of the Lebanese-Syrian-
American Society in Los Ange-
les. It was addressed by two El
Fatah emissaries, Akram Abdul
Majeed and Yousef Hanafi, both
Palestinians and both 28. Their
audience consisted of doctors,
students, priests and assorted
businessmen.
Their theme was that guerrilla
warfare was the only way to wrest
Palestine from the Israelis. Dona-
tions were solicited by George E.
Shibley, general counsel for the
United American Arab Congress.
"At length, between $400 and $500
is raised from an audience of some
75 of the Arabic community's big-
gest spenders," Lardner reported.
He said a "Night of Artists"
sponsored by the United Arab
American Congress last August to
raise funds for Sirhan B. Sirhan,
the Jordanian immigrant on trial
for the assassination of Sen. Rob-
ert F. Kennedy, raised only $1,500
toward its goal of $5,000.
Lardner estimated the Arab-
American population at about
1,000,000, the Syrians and Leban-
ese being the old-timers with a
sprinkling of Palestinians and Jor-
danians who arrived since 1948.
He noted that the Jewish popula-
tion of New York City alone is
more than twice the Arabs' num-
bers.
He said the Lebanese and Sy-
rians, most of whom started out
as peddlers and eventually built
small businesses, are conservative
by nature and tend to vote Repub-
lican.
