ADL Assails Federal Govt. Grant
Which Would Aid Anti-Semitic Army

NEW YORK (JTA)—The Anti-
Defamation League of Bnai Brith
has condemned the U.S. govern-
ment for a $500,000 grant to an
organization it charges is headed
by a professional anti-Semite who
is seeking to establish an anti-
Semitic mercenary army.
ADL's general counsel, Arnold
Forster, made that charge Wednes-
day in reference to the so-called

Israel Medical Services
Neglected by Government,
Journal Davar Charges

TEL AVIV (ZINS)—Sharply criti-
cizing the Israel government for
neglecting the country's hospitals,
the leading journal of the labor
movement, Davar, has called at-
tention to a crisis in which thou-
sands of the aged and poor cannot
obtain required services in a hos-
pital or clinic. In many cases, no
hospital beds are available even
when it is a matter of life or death.
Admittedly the nation is in a
serious financial . bind, but why,
asks Davar. is there money for va-
cation centers, many of which are
subsidized by voluntary contribu-
tions from abroad, while at the
same time there is a lack of funds
for these essential medical facili-
ties?

Gentile Interest in Jews
Is Called 'Phenomenal'

EAST ST. LOUIS. Ill. (JTA)—A
St. Louis Jewish communal leader
has expressed the view that "the
non-Jewish world has a mystique
about the Jew which is nothing
short of phenomenal, when -com-
pared with the attitudeS toward
Jews years ago."
The reason, in the view of Al
Fleishman, is that the gentile
world cannot understand how the
Jew has survived his unparalleled
persecution.
Speaking at a meeting of the
Young Leadership Group of the
Jewish Federation of Southern
Illinois, he cited "the spate of
the new books and best sellers
today with Jewish themes" as
evidence both of non-Jewish in-
terest in Jews and in growing
knowledgability about Jews.
He described as a parallel de-
velopment widespread and grow-
ing affirmation among Jews of
their Jewish identity. He declared
that "something has happened that
is bigger than any of our organiza-
tional efforts to make this change
come about."

Black Man's Volunteer Army of
Liberation, headed by Col Hassan
Jeru Ahmed, 47, director of the
Blackman's Development Center
in Washington. Forster told the
JTA that Jeru Ahmed had a back-
ground of racism, bigotry and anti-
Semitism and that it was totally
inappropriate for him to be given
federal funds for his narcotics re-
habilitation programs in Washing-
ton and Spottsylvania County, Va.
The ADL's fact-finding direc-
tor, Justin Finger, added that
Jeru Ahmed has been involved
with known anti-S e m i t e s and
racists, such as Willis Carto, head
of the right-wing Liberty Lobby.
Finger said the ADL has pro-
tested the grant to the Depart-
ment of Health, Education and
Welfare. Jeru Ahmed, who calls
himself the head of the Provi-
sional Government of the United
Moorish Republic, also gets
S169,000 from Narcotics Treat-
ment Administration, also for
work with drug addicts.
Last year, it received $23,000
from the Department of Human
Resources and last month $25,000
from the Teamsters Alliance for
Labor Action. The organization's
total income last year was $193.-
343 after expenditures it had
$1,500.
The Black Man's Volunteer Army
of Liberation is run in paramilitary
style, with members wearing uni-
forms and participating in drills.
Jeru Ahmed's right-hand and. a
Maj. Jamal, was sentenced earlier
this year to 30 days for carrying
a concealed pistol in Washington
while distributing leaflets.

Labor Dept. Aide Sees

Executive Suite Bias

ST. LOUIS (JTA) A- deputy as-
sistant secretary of labor said here
that discrimination against hiring
Jews to fill top corporate execu-
tive positions persists . although
the exclusions come in many '-
cases as a great shock to the-
corporations themselves."
The situation was discussed at
length by John L. WilkeS, who
oversees contract compliance in
the Department of Labor.
Wilkes addressed a luncheon for
45 local corporation presidents and
principals representing 22 St. Louis-
based major corporations. It was
arranged by the executive em-
ployment opportunity com mittee
of the American Jewish Commit-
tee and the Jewish Employment
and Vocational Service.
Wilkes said that for some time
four or five Jews have served on
the boards of directors of banks
and major corporations apart from
several originally founded by Jews.
But, he said, in many cases, the
appearance of Jews as presidents,
vice presidents or in other execu-
tive positions was the result of the
acquisition of smaller Jewish-own-
ed companies by major corpora-
tions.
