E. German Failure to Atone Condemed

to place on record its oppo-
sition to the admission of
the German Democratic Re-
public," Tekoah said.
Tekoah's address to the
General Assembly was fol-
lowed by attacks on Israel
by the Egyptian delegate,
Ahmed Esmat Abdel Meguid.
U. S. delegate John A.
Scali said West Germany had
recognized its obligation as
a result of the Nazi years
and expressed the hope that
East Germany would "also
recognize the just claims of
those who suffered as a re-
sult of the crimes of the
Nazis."
The 72 sponsors feared that
pressing the matter of a
separate vote "might open
up a Pandora's Box," the Is-
raeli delegation said. It said
that the result might have
been that more states . would
vote for the East German re-
gime than for West Germany,
"a development which is ob-
viously undesirable, as the
objective of Israel's move is
to highlight the fact that it is
East, and not West Germany,
that is unworthy of admis-
sion."

(Continued from Page 1)

At the same time, however,
Tekoah said, "Israel notes
with regret and repugnance
that the other German state
has ignored and continues to
ignore Germany's historical
responsibility for the Holo-
caust and the moral obliga-
tions arising from it, it has
compounded the gravity of
this attitude by giving sup-
port and practical assistance
to the campaign of violence
and murder waged against
Israel and the Jewish people
by Arab terror organiza-
tions.
"The government of Israel
has always favored the prin-
ciple of universality of the
United Nations. It has always
welcomed and attached great
importance to international
detente . . . it cannot, how-
ever, pass in silence over the
policy of the German Demo-
cratic Republic . . . accord-
ingly, Israel supports the ad-
mission of the Federal Re-
public of Germany to the
United Nations, but desires

Keeping Observant Difficult
for Israeli at Moscow Games

RAMAT-GAN — Trying to
remain observant in the face
of Russian harassment was
the major problem of the
Bar-Ilan University represen-
tative at the World Univer-
sity Games in Moscow.
Abraham Zuchman, a sec-
ond-year education student
at Bar-Ilan University who
represented Israel in volley-
ball at the games, was the
only religious member of the
Israeli team.
He took with him a large
quantity of canned foods,
which supplemented by fruit
and vegetables, provided him
with an ample diet during his
two-week stay. On the El Al
plane to Zurich he was given
utensils for use in Russia,
and on the Aeroflot (Rus-
sian) aircraft to Moscow he
was even given a kosher
meal.
Before leaving Israel, a
rabbi gave him advice on
getting to the main syna-
gogue in Moscow on the Sab-
bath.
At the USSR customs ex-
amination Abraham's food
was seized together with
pa m p h l e t s and key-rings
from Bar-Ilan University.
These were only returned
when the Russian interpreter
s u c c e e d e d in explaining
Abraham's plight.

ing Bar-Ilan University mem-
entos.
The Israelis attended the
Moscow synagogue on the
first Friday evening and on
the two Sabbath mornings.
Generally there is a small
congregation present on Fri-
day evenings, but this time
there were 1,000 people. On
the second Sabbath morning
there were 3,000 people, in-
side and outside. During the
service the Russians divert-
ed traffic past the synagogue
to disturb the worshipers.
Abraham was given the
honor of reading the Torah.
The team also met the rabbi.
On all occasions in the syna-
gogue members of the KGB
were present and were rec-
ognized by the Jews.
This was the fifth time
Abraham has represented Is-
rael overseas. He attended
the World University Games
in Turin, Italy, and has been
a member of the Israeli na-
tional basketball team on
three occasions.

Throughout their stay, the
Israelis were harassed by
Russians. B e f or e games
there were songs in Arabic;
then there were incidents
which reached the world
press.

"The Russians even tried
to prevent us from making
itact with local Jews,"
Abraham. "You could
not speak freely, even on the
telephone, as you felt they
were listening. You did not
even want to walk in the
street because you knew they
were following."
The Israelis sometimes
tried to "trick" the KGB
(Russian Secret Police).
Once they went up the es-
calator at an underground
station and immediately went
down again. Two people be-
hind them immediately did
the same.
The Israelis found it dif-
ficult to give local Jews any-
thing because the police im-
mediately took it. Neverthe-
less, Abraham and his team
mates succeeded in distribut-

Israel's intention in re-
questing a separate vote was
to place on record its specific
objections to the admission
of the East German Demo-
cratic Republic. According to
informed sources here, Israel
came under severe pressure,
notably from the United
States, to withdraw its re-
quest. It was feared by the
U. S. and other sponsors of
the two Germanys "pack-
age" that votes for East Ger-
many by the Arab and Soviet
blocs and by many non-
aligned nations, particularly
the African states, would
greatly outnumber the votes
cast for the Bonn regime,
the sources said. Moreover,
they pointed out that the two
Germanys "package" was a
major element in moves tow-
ard East-West detente.
