French Spare Parts Going to Israel
Despite Old deGaulle Embargo

PARIS (JTA)—Israel is quietly
receiving military spare parts from
France, although the embargo laid
down by the late president, Charles
deGaulle, is still in effect, accord-
ing to the French weekly Nouvelle
Observateur.
The magazine cited this report as
further evidence that Franco-
Israeli relations have improved
considerably in the last few months.
It said that spare parts were
being sent to Tel Aviv "discreetly,
just as they were before the "Cher
bourg Affair."
The "Cherbourg Affair" oc-
curred on Christmas Day 1969,
when five unarmed gunboats
built for Israel in France but
under embargo, were spirited
away from Cherbourg by IsTaeli
crews.

The incident aroused the French
government's anger and reportedly
led to a tightening of the arms em-
bargo against Israel which had
been in effect since the June 1967
Arab-Israeli war.
But Israeli circles here claimed
that the embargo on spare parts
was enforced even before the gun-
boats left Cherbourg. They had no
comment on the report that spare
parts were now being delivered to
Israel.

GENEVA (JTA)—Aaron Vergelis,
editor of Sovietish Heimland, the
only Yiddish magazine' published
in the Soviet Union, contended to-
day that the Leningrad trial of nine
Jews and two non-Jews had been
held in secret session "in order
not to stir up anti-Semitic feelings
among certain parts of the popula
flan." Anti-Semitism, he said at a
news conference, exists in the
USSR today "as it does anywhere
in the world where Jews live."
He predicted ibat:alt Soviet Jews
who want to—emigrate to IsraeL
would be allowed to in due course,
"but this a slow process,
for administrative and bureau
cratie'reasons." He noted that the
Kremlin preferred not to let Soviet
citizens go, but- added that none
toeless it was not in the Kremlin'r,
interest to hold , back "those ele-
ments who refuse to integrate."
Vergelis estimated that 1,000 Soviet
Jews had left for Israel in 1970—

"a considerable number consider-

ing the non-existence of diplomatic
relations between the two countries
as well as the fact that Russia's
planned economy precludes emi-
gration."
But he stated that there was a
continuing process of Soviet Jewish
assimilation within the USSR and
that it should not be interfered
with. He said the average Russian
was not interested in the trials.

The Soviet Jewish editor as-
serted that Yiddish was still a
living language in the USSR,
noting that Sovietish Heimland
was published In 25,000-copy
runs and that it reflected "the
cultural, literary and social life
of Soviet Jews."
(According to information reach-
ing London, the authorities in Biro-
bidjan have, after three decades,
begun making their library there
look "Jewish."

only a few dilapidated copies of
Yiddish classics, but now, It is re-

TEL AVIV (ZINS)—A popularity
poll recently conducted by the In-
stitute for Public Opinion Research

Meir are the most popular politi-
cal figures in the country.
First place was won by Moshe
Dayan, who received 88.3 per cent
of the vote, with Golda Meir a
close second, having 83.3 per cent.
In third spot, was Yigal Alton with
27.3 per cent, and running be-
hind him was Abba Eban with 25.7
per cent.
Gen. Chaim Bar-Lev was fifth
with 14.9 per cent.
Others named were: Menahem
Begin, with 11.7 per cent; Shimon
Peres, 5.1 per cent; U.S. Ambas-
sador Itzak Rabin, 3.4 per cent;
Pinhas Sapir, 3A per cent; Ezer
Weizman, 3.4 per cent, and David
Ben-Gurion, 1.7 per cent.
A few votes were cast for the
Lubavitcher Rebbe. Scattered votes

a mere 3.1 per cent of the vote in
a comparable popularity poll.
