Jewish Candidate for Thant's Job Says
He Couldn't Use Office to Aid Soviet Jews

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (JTA)
—Dr. Max Jakobson—the Finnish
ambassador to the United Nations,
a declared candidate for secre-
tary general, and a Jew—said
Monday that he considered the
question of Jewish emigration from
the Soviet Union to be an internal
Soviet matter.
Dr. Jakobson did not elaborate
in response to a formal question
by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency
correspondent at a press lunch-
eon of the UN Correspondents
Association.
Afterward, however, he agre0
that his position meant that So-
viet Jewry could not look to him
as secretary general for emigra-
tion aid'. Asked if as secretary
general he could use his office to
aid Soviet Jewish emigration by
means of quiet diplomacy or
moral persuasion, Dr. Jakobson

said no, because "it would be
very difficult."
He thus took the same position
as U Thant, the secretary general
since 1961, who has indicated his
unwillingness to serve another
term.
In reply to another question, the
Finnish diplomat criticized the
religious overtones of the reported
Arab agreement to ask Thant to
serve another term after Dec. 31
and failing that, to oppose Dr.
Jakobson because of his "vulner-
ability to outside pressure"—be-
lieved to be a euphemistic refer-
ence to his religion and thus, by
implication, his relationship with
Israel.
If he had such vulnerability, the
envoy said, he would not have
been allowed to serve his country
for 20 years, would not have been
given "sensitive" posts and would
not have been nominated by his
government for the UN leader-
ship.
As to his heritage, he asked
rhetorically if any secretary gen-
eral could possibly be "of no
religion, of no race . . . a man who
casts no shadow."
Dr. Jakobson declined to discuss

specific Middle East issues, but
reported that the world leaders he
had met on his recent interna-
tional tour were "intensely inter-
ested" in the Mid East.
Most of the 45-minute press
conference was devoted to the
issue of the People's Republic of
China, whose entry into the UN
Jakobson favors; but he did not
discuss the impact Red China
would have on the Mid East
crisis as a member of the UN
and as a member of the Security
Council.
(A secret meeting reportedly
held March 30 ended with 13 of
the 14 Arab delegations to the UN
making a joint recommendation
that their governments oppose
Jakobson for the UN post. Only
Egypt was absent.
(Diplomats generally believe that
a solid Arab front against Jakob-
son would kill his chances of elec-
tion because the Soviet Union,
which has veto power in the Se-
curity Council, would adopt the
position of the Arabs.)
Jakobson's father has been chair-
man since 1935 of the• Zionist Fed-
eration of Finland and his mother
has been honorary president since
1958 of the Women's International
Zionist Organization in Helsinki.

Brandeis U. Rabbi
and Scholar Differ
on Black Panthers

An appeal
by a Hillel rabbi for Jewish sup-
port of U.S. Black Panthers on
grounds of Jewish concern for the
oppressed, has been severely criti-
cized by a Brandeis University
scholar.
The appeal was made by Rabbi
Sidney Axelrad, Hillel director at
the university. The critic was Prof.
Leonard Fein.
Rabbi Axelrad had asserted that,
"as an often despised and perse-
cuted people ourselves, with whose
history Black tribulations are pro-.
foundly parallel, who better than
we Jews can or should identify
more closely with oppressed
Blacks?" He added that there were
elements of the Black Panther out-
look and actions which he opposed
but contended that this did not
justify Jewish rejection of the
Panther movement.
Rabbi Axelrad outlined his
views in a letter reprinted in the
fall 1970 issue of Response, an
independent journal of Jewish
opinion. Prof. Fein responded in
a letter in the current issue of
Response.
Dr. Fein disputed Rabbi Axel-
rad's argument that the Panthers
deserved special consideration
from Jews on grounds of con-
science. Jews, as Jews, Dr. Fein
declared, do not "owe equal sym-
pathy to all the oppressed."
Dr. Fein declared that one of
his reasons for opposing the Black
Panthers was his belief that the
Panthers "postpone, rather than
hasten the day" when the "more
serious and more general oppres-
sion" of American Blacks Will be
ended.

WALTHAM (JTA) —

Grenade Injures 18;
Population Swap at Suez

TEL AVIV, (JTA) — Eighteen
Arabs were injured April 27 when
a hand grenade thrown into a
crowded street in the Gaza Strip
exploded. Security forces launched
a search for the terrorists respon-
sible for the action.
Civilian populations were ex-
changed across the Suez Canal.
The movement saw 144 Egyp-
tian nationals from the Gaza Strip
transfer to Egypt while 27 for-
mer Gaza Strip residents in Egypt
returned to their homes. The trans-
fer was conducted under auspices
of the International Red Cross.

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Angels Fly El Al

Zahava Angel, an El Al stew-
ardess for 12 years, pins wings
on a new stewardess, her daugh-
ter Rachel.
* * *
There's a new twist to the "My
Son the Doctor" story; it's hap-
pening on El Al. Zahava Angel,
the mother, has been flying with
El Al for 12 years and now serves
the airline's first-class passengers.
She also is an instructor of air-
hostess courses and is a check
hostess, under whom young trainee
stewardesses take their final
checkingout flights.
This year, when 19-year-old
Rachel Angel, a Tel Aviv-born Is-
raeli, finished her military ser-
vice, she asked her mother if she
could follow in her footsteps. She
received her mother's blessing.
Rachel is taking special courses
to prepare her for service on the
747, the first of which will be fly-
ing under El Al colors in June.
Mother and daughter are flying
for the same airline, though never
aboard the same flight.

Tel Aviv Hilton to Be
Largest Hotel in Mid East

NEW YORK — A 196-room ad-
dition to the 426-room Tel Aviv
Hilton is now under construction.
When completed in 1973, it will
make the Tel Aviv Hilton the lar-
gest hotel in the Middle East and
the third largest hotel operated by
Hilton International.
The new rooms include 13 lux-
ury suites offering a view both of
the city and of the Mediterranean
Sea. The other rooms will be
added to each of the upper 14 of
20 total stories, designed to match
the existing rooms both in size and
decor.
Owned by Israel Hotels Interna-
tional, Inc., of which the govern-
ment of Israel is a major stock-
holder, the Tel Aviv Hilton reached
a record occupancy rate in 1970.

Tourists Left Cold

TEL AVIV (ZINS)—The pleas-
ure of visiting Israel which thou-
sands of tourists anticipated dur-
ing Passover soured when hotels
failed to honor "confirmed" reser-
vations, according to reports ap-
pearing in the Israel press.
The situation reached such
alarming proportions that the min-
ister of tourism found it necessary
to publish an "open apology" to
all tourists affected.

The local press was quick to
point out that a public apology did
little to console the disgusted visi-
tors. It would have been more ef-
fective, the papers say, had the
tourist ministry imposed heavy
fines on these hotels, hitting them
where it hurts, and compelling
them to pay closer attention to
this matter in the future.
