Dingell Calls on World Opinion as 3,New Executions Take Place in Iraq


LONDON (JTA)—Iraq executed
three more of its nationals—none
of them Jews—Monday as alleged
spies for Israel and the United
States. According to Baghdad
radio, the latest victims were Pri-
vate Mohammed Rabah Haidar of
the Iraqi Army, who was shot by
a firing squad, and Ambarkhud
Al-Karam and Amis Abbas, civil-
ians, who were hanged.
The broadcast gave no details
of the charges nor was there any
indication that the three had stood
trial. Their execution brought to
54 the number of alleged spies
executed by Iraq this year, among
them 11 Jews. Fifteen civilians and
soldiers including two Jews were
executed in Baghdad on Aug. 15.

(In Washington. State Depart-
ment officials Monday voiced
shock and dismay over the execu
tions. They said that the additional
executions were a source of grave
concern following the recent critic-
ism by Secretary of State William
P. Rogers that earlier killings
were repugnant to the conscience
of mankind. The State Department
had officially described previous
executions as "blood baths.")
Congressman John D. Dingell.
Democrat from the 16th District
(Dearborn). issued a statement in
which he called the Iraqi "spy'
executions "outrageous."
"It is too bad the world has
been too busy to pay much atten-
tion to the recent execution of
al!eged spies in Iraq," Rep. Din-
gell said.
"Moslems. Christians and Jews
have been the victims of sham
trials and secret purges which out-
rage Western notions of justice.
The United Nations would do well
to focus international attention on
the medieval tyranny which passes
or government in Baghdad," he


"The United Nations has
chosen to inquire into the status
of Arab peoples under Israeli
control, but as yet it hasn't
