NEW YORK (JTA) — The
Rev. Daniel Berrigan's re-
cent vituperative attacks on
Israel stem possibly from his
total lack of first-hand knowl-
edge of that country, which
he has never visited, and the
strong influence of anti-Is-
rael elements in the Third
World liberation movement,
particularly one individual
closely associated with ex-
tremists in the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization (PLO).
That was the assessment of
the anti-Vietnam war ac-
tivist given to the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency by Rabbi
•rc Tanenbaum, director
the interreligious affairs
uepartment of the American
Jewish Committee.
Tanenbaum warned that
"It is not sufficient simply
to repudiate Father Berrigan
for the simple reason that he
is a major influence on uni-
versity campuses and a
heroic figure to many young
Jews in the peace move-

ment." He must be re-edu-
cated, Rabbi Tanenbaum
said.

The 52-year-old J e suit
priest, who served 27 months
in Danbury Federal Peniten-
tiary for burning draft rec-
ords in Catonsville, Md. in
1968, attacked Israel as an
"imperialist nation" and a
"settler state" which is "the
creation of an elite of mil-
lionaires, generals and en-
trepreneurs."

He delivered his attack two
months ago to the Associa-
tion of Arab University Grad-
uates. His remarks were pub-
lished in American Report, a
publication of Clergy and
Laity Concerned.

Tanenbaum, who is active
in the ecumenical movement,
said he has encountered other
Christian clergy and laymen
who have exhibited similar
attitudes. "We simply have
to start with their total re-
education, make them recog-
nize their ignorance and
bring them to responsibility,"
he said. He told the JTA that
he was "involved in efforts
to establish some sort of
effective communication with
Father Berrigan."

Berrigan's anti-Israel re-
marks have cast doubt on
plans to present him with the
Gandhi Peace Award Jan. 9
at the Community Church
here. The Rev. Donald S.
Harrington, pastor of the
church who was to make the
presentation, has said that
he would not do so.
Promoting Enduring Peace,
the group which was plan-
ning to present the award,
now is taking a mail poll of
its board of directors to re-
evaluate the award to Fr.
Berrigan.
Tanenbaum, describing Ber-
rigan as "a mystic and poet
who is carried away by his
own rhetoric and influenced
by the audience he is addres-
sing," attributed much of his
anti-Israel bias to a Pakis-
tani political science student,
surnamed Achmed, at the
Adlai Stevenson Institute in
Chicago.
According to Tanenbaum,
the Pakistani has been one
of the closest associates of
Berrigan and his brother,

"The indiscriminate mur-
der of 32 innocent persons
by five Arab hijackers at the
Rome and Athens airports is
a crime that must not be al-
lowed to go unpunished—des-
pite the miserable history of
past attempts to bring ter-
rorists to trial or to penalize
their protectors.
"This latest crime against
humanity does not even have
the political excuse some-
times advanced in defense of
terrorism. To shoot up inno-
cent bystanders in an airport
lounge, to toss incendiary
bombs into a passenger
plane, then to hijack another
plane and murder an inno-
cent 'hostage' in cold blood
is savage barbarism.
"Not one of the persons
murdered was a known op-
ponent of the Palestinian
cause the terrorists and their
leaders presumably believe
they are serving. Four were
fellow Arabs, Moroccan of-
ficials whose government is
among those demanding pun-
ishment of the criminals.
Even the Palestinian guerril-
la leader Yasir Arafat report-
edly is asking their trial by
a 'Palestinian revolutionary
court.'
"The government of Ku-
wait has an obligation before
mankind to see that justice
is done. Whether it tries the
terrorists itself or cooperates
with Italy's extradition re-
quest, it must move to put
them before a duly constitut-
ed court. To release them or
to turn them over to the
guerrilla Palestine Libera-
tion Organization — even if
the P.L.O. proposes to under-
take punishment—would be a
travesty of governmental re-
sponsibility."

TEL AVIV (ZINS) — An

Letter From Front

Berrigan's Anti-Israel Bias Due to Iomorance, Tanenbaum Says

Father Philip Berrigan, in
the peace and civil rights
movements. He is associated
with the PLO and has also
been one of the most vocifer-
ous anti-Israel propagandists,
Tanenbaum said.

Michael Novak, a promin-
ent Catholic thinker and con-
tributor to the liberal Catho-
lic magazine Commonweal,
attacked Fr. Berrigan for his
words about "Zionists in our
midst."

Israeli father, who survived
Auschwitz, received the fol-
lowing letter from his soldier-
son at the Suez fro n t:
"Father, when I was at the
Suez Canal facing the huge
tank assault of the enemy,
all I could see before my
eyes at that time was the
concentration camp number
tatooed on your arm. It was
that vision which gave me
strength and enabled me to
survive."
