NEW YORK—"The proph-

in the Jew a will to live
which no disaster could

wing deputies insulted each

Andreotti also rejected

tacit support of the neo-

Italy's fourth largest political

the main motivation for his
decision to become a Jew was
"the prophetic ideals of so-
cial justice and human broth-
erhood, beyond race and
creed" that Judaism repre-
sents. He added:
"For many years I have
seen an affinity between the
Jews and the Negro. The
Jews have been oppressed
for 3,000 years and the Ne-
groes for 300, but the rest
was very much the same.
"I have read the history of
the Jews rather thoroughly,
and what I found was quite
familiar to me: oppressed
and enslaved for centuries,
despised and rejected;
searching for a home, for
equality and human dignity,
and suffering the loneliness
of being unwanted—but sur-
viving even the destruction of
their homes and the burning
of their temples; hanging on
to the faith and enduring the
scorn, the intolerance, the
abuses against them be-
cause they were `different';
time and again losing eves y-
thing, but never their belief
in themselves and in their
right to have rights, asking
for nothing but to be left
alone — and I found myself
saying to the author — it

by Abram Sachar — 'I know
exactly how you feel'."
