1,000 Students Condemn 'UN Passivity'

NEW YORK (JTA) — Approxi-
mately 1,000 Jewish students dem-
onstrated outside UN headquarters
for more than an hour Monday in
protest against what they termed
UN passivity in the face of Arab
They scored last Friday's am-
bush of an Israeli school bus and
the earlier Security Council reso-
lution condemning Israeli militar-
ism but not that of Arab guerril-
The participants included mem-
bers of Betar Students for Peace
in the Middle East, the Youth
Committee for Peace and Demo-
cracy in the Middle East, Student
Struggle for Soviet Jewry, the
young peoples socialist league and
groups from Brooklyn College and
City College.
Among the speakers were Rabbi
Avi Weiss of Yeshiva University,
Dennis Prager of Student Struggle
and Josh Muravchik of YPSL and
the Youth Committee, whose fath-
er, Emanuel Muravchik, is execu-
tive director of the Jewish Labor
One of the signs displayed read:
"El Fatah Is Unhealthy for Chil-
dren and Other Living Things."
This was a play on the peace slo-
gan "War is unhealthy . . ."
The secretary of the Palestine
Liberation Organization observed
the demonstration in the company
of police, apparently in an attempt
to identify participants as among
those who beat three Arab nation-
als here in reprisal for the bus
The militant Jewish Defense
League, which has been accused
of the beatings, had been invited
to join in Monday's demonstration,
but did not officially, according to
Israel Winkelman, the Betar rep-
resentative on the American Zion-
ist Youth Council. He said one JDL
member was present.
(One of the three Arabs beaten
here said Tuesday night that the
terrorist attack against the Israeli
bus, however deplorable the re-
sultant deaths, was no more hein-
ous than the Israeli attack on a
school near Cairo that killed 30
children. He was Gazi Khankann,
features editor of Action, an Arab
American newspaper, and host of
a radio program of Arabic music.
Israel has maintained that the
Egyptian school was within a mili-
tary compound and was not known
to its air force.)
Mayor John V. Lindsay, UN
Secretary General U Thant, and
the American Jewish Congress

and said: "This is the Palestine
Liberation Front. We have avenged
the death of our Arab children.•'
The caller hung up without answer-
ing any questions.
Mayor Lindsay called the beat-
ings of the three Arabs "intoler-
able." Police here reported they
found no evidence to identify the
attackers despite assertions by the ,
victims that members of the JDL I
were responsible.
Police details were posted out-
side Arab UN mission offices,
Arab consulates and business of-
fices. One of the victims, Dr. M. T.
Mehdi, secretary general of the
Action Committee on American-
Arab Relations, called on the New



York district attorney's office to
launch a full-scale probe into the
JDL. He also warned that the next
time anyone tries to assault him
he will. shoot the assailant.
Last Friday afternoon six per-
sons forced their way into the
office of the Palestine Liberation
Organization in mid-town Man-
hattan and beat Saddat Hasan. A
few minutes later, six men forc-
ed their way into Dr. Meluirs
office a few blocks away and
beat him and Ghazi Khankan, a
staff member. All three men
were hospitalized.
Hasan was reported in satisfac-
tory condition. The other two were
not seriously injured.
A spokesman at the PLO office
said that the intruders left behind
mimeographed papers saying in
Hebrew and English: "An eye for
an eye. The Bible. For murdered
Jewish children. Never Again."
The JDL uses the phrase "Never

Thant deplored "the brutal as-
saults" on the three Arabs. A UN

of the beatings, "immediately ap-

been assured by the mission that
prompt measures have been taken

Indifference Worse
Than Alienation,
Israeli Says of Youth

BOSTON—Declaring that if he
had to choose between indifference
and alienation among American
Jewish youth that he would choose
alienation, Col. Mordecai Bar-On,
member of the Jewish Agency Ex-
ecutive in Jerusalem and head of
its youth and hehalutz depart-
ment, said that the "moment youth
begins to demand and challenge
the existing attitude towards Jew-
ish communal li"e it also means
that the youth begins to get in-
volved, and the adult leadership
of the community ought to under-
stand this".
Col. Bar-On, who served for
more than five years as chief edu-
cational officer of the Israel
Armed Forces, spoke here at a
luncheon held in connection with
the annual meeting of the National
Conference of Jewish Communal
"Although much can he criti-
cized in youth's attitude toward
Jewish life," Col. Bar-On contin-
ued, "we should be pleased with
such symptoms of youth involve-
ment in Jewish life even when
they embarrass us occasionally in
the short run".
A world conference on Sew-
ish education will be convened
in Jerusalem within the next
year under the auspices of the
education and culture depart-
ment of th4 Jewish Agency, it
was diclosed by Chaim Finkel-
stein, world head of the Jewish
Agency's department of educa-
tion and culture.
Finkelstein, in the United States
on his first official visit since his
appointment as head of the de-
partment, made this disclosure at
a press conference.
The educator said that the
planned conference will be on an
international scope similar to the
world conference on economics
convened by Prime Minister Esh-
kol shortly before his death. In-
vited will be Jewish educators,
writers, and intellectuals from
throughout the world.
