THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
Black Panther Issue
Disturbs Quebec Jews
JERUSALEM (JTA)—A Jewish
Agency spokesman conceded
Wednesday that the phenomenon
of the Black Panther movement
in Israel has adversely affected
immigration prospects among
French-speaking Jews from Can-
Many who had planned to settle
in Israel this summer are now
waiting for the report of a 50-man
mission of Jews from Quebec sent
to investigate aliya prospects, the
spokesman said. The group is pay-
ing special attention to the ques-
tion of social unrest in the wake
of Black Panther demonstrations
in recent weeks.
The Panthers, Jerusalem slum
youths of North African and Asian
origin, have been protesting against
squalid living conditions and al-
leged discrimination against Jews
of oriental origin in housing, edu-
cation and employment. They
have adopted the name of the
militant American Black Panther
party but have no known connec-
tion with that organization.

WASHINGTON (JTA) — The
ultimate decision as to whether
the Voice of America will beam
Yiddish language broadcasts to
the Soviet Union will be made by
President Nixon, the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency has learned from
well informed sources here.
The VOA, which is part of the
U.S. Information Agency headed
by Frank Shakespeare, is on rec-
ord as opposed to Yiddish broad-
casts on technical grounds and
because it believes that its pres-
ent broadcasts to the USSR in
various languages reaches a suf-
ficient number of Russian Jews
with news of Jewish affairs.
Bipartisan pressure for spe-
cial VOA Yiddish programing
is building up in Congress,
where Senators Clifford Case
(R-N.J.) and John V. Tunney
(D-Calif.), have sponsored a
resolution calling on the USIA
to inaugurate it.
The USIA Advisory Commission,
headed by Frank Stanton, presi-
dent of the Columbia Broadcast-
ing System, will announce a deci-
sion on the matter next month.

to 6 Months for
Extortion in Israel
TEL AVIV (JTA—An American
and a Canadian student at Bar-
Ilan University who admitted to
membership in the Jewish De-
fense League, were sentenced to
six months in jail by a Tel Aviv
district court on charges of having
extorted money from fellow stu-
dents for the JDL.
The accused, Robert Fine, 25,
an American, and Seymour Laker,
23, of Canada, denied the charges.
In New York, federal Judge
Jack B. Weinstein imposed a five-
year suspended sentence and
$5,000 fine on JDL National Chair-
man Rabbi Meir Kahane in U.S.
District Court in Brooklyn. Ka-
hane was convicted of making
bombs at the JDL's Camp Jedel
in Woodburne, N.Y. Two co-defen-
dants, Chaim Bieber and Stewart
Cohen, were given three-year sus-
pended sentences and three years'
probation. Bieber was fined $2,500
and Cohen $500.
Meanwhile, the Jewish Defense
League refused to comment on
any aspect of Sunday's fire-
bombing of a Soviet attache's
car, even as to how it feels about
anonymous persons calling news
bureaus to report such incidents
and using JDL slogans.
The car of Michael Globenko
was hit by a Molotov cocktail at
3:50 a.m. outside the Soviet staff's
bungalow in Far Rockaway. Half
an hour earlier, a caller speaking
in English and Hebrew announced
the impending incident and used
the phrases "in reprisal for the
oppression of the Jews in the
Soviet Union," "Let my people
go" and "Never again."
