additional grant of $210,000 over
the next three years to continue
research into the nature of the liv-
A previous grant from the Na-

buted toward the work in that

NEW YORK (JTA) — The 10
Arabic newspapers published in the
United States and Canada have
very little in common except dis-
like of Israel.

of freedom of the press, a condition
they acknowledge does not exist in

ing in Editor and Publisher, the
American newspaper trade journal.
A typical paper, according to the
writer, is Al Islaah, established
in 1931 and published by an Iraqi-
born Christian, Dr. Alphonse Chau-
rize, which claims that "the crea-
tion of Israel was a satanic plot
of the Communists to drive the
Arabs into the Soviet embrace."
The newest of the Arabic weeklies
is Action, edited by Dr. M. T.
Mehdi, an active propagandist for
Arab causes in the U.S. He told
Granitsas that the Arabic press re-
flects all of the divisions that exist
in the Arab world. However, Dr.
Mebdi's newspaper endorsed Ar-
thur J. Goldberg in this year's New
York gubernatorial race because it
thought his election would "make
the Jews more secure in New York
and they would bother less in the
Dr. Mehdi predicted that in 10-15
years the Arab world will have a
free press. "The fact that Israel
has more freedom of the press—
even during crisis—is mainly due
• to Western influences while the
Jews lived in the West. What we
need now is some of the same ideas
in the Arab world," Mehdi said.
According to Granitsas, _most
Arab editors believe Jews or Is-
raelis control the American press
which, they claim accounts for the
alleged one-sideness of news ac-
counts from the Middle East and
distortion of the Arab image.
NEW YORK (JTA) — Mayor
John V. Lindsay urged all Amer-
icans—Jews and non-Jews alike—
to heed the lesson of Hanuka.
"Just as a single lamp had the
resources of fuel to burn for eight
nights, so we can draw from our-
selves the inner resources to keep
going in the struggle against ig-
norance, poverty, intolerance and
injustice," declared the mayor.
"Speaking to a large crowd
gathered to witness the kindling of
the menora which stands in the
lobby of city hall, the mayor also
recalled the tale of the Macabees
and their valiant struggle to defeat
oppression and reaffirm their spir-
itual heritage. "In the birth and

The captain, Uri Bar Lev, said
that after unsuccessful efforts by
other airlines to subdue 362 prev-
ious hijacking tries. "we proved
it could be done." He added that
"this was not done out of heroism
or patriotism or any other-ism-
all of us believe in something
for which we strive together."
Israeli Consul General. Rehea-
t/earn Amh• told the crew: "We
Israelis are proud of you. We Jews
love you. We people of the world
rely on you."
The Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Organi-
zations sponsored the reception.
The crew, in adding(' to Capt.
Bar Lev, included flight engineer
Uri Zack parsers Abraham Eis-
enberg and Shlomo Vider, stew-
ard Moshe Epstein and steward-
esses Janet Demirjan, Ntuith
Dominski sad Michelle Eder.
Vider, 40. who was in critical
condition after being shot during
the hijacking attempt and who still
carries three of the bullets in his
body, told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency he felt as well as he had
before the fateful flight. He has
been with El Al six years.
Capt. Bar Lev, 39, who has been
14 years with El Al and three
years a captain, told the gather-
ing that he still endorsed airline-
pilot efforts to stymie hijacking,
even without government support,
but that such a plan has been
"boycotted by some airlines."
He told the JTA later that he
was not related to Israel's chief
of staff, Gen. Haim Bar-Lev, but
had given him flying instructions
and found him an apt student.
El Al spokesman J. Peter Bruns-
wick said the eight-member crew
was scheduled as a unit when-
ever possible. "A crew that avoids
a hijacking together should stay
together," he explained.
