Trifa's Citizenship in Jeopardy; Rabbi Rosen Calls for Justice

NEW YORK — The chief a leader of the fascist Iron the United States.
rabbi of Romania, Dr_ Moses Guard in Romania in 1941, is

Rosen, termed as "unbeliev-- today a bishop of the Ortho- Jew to bring Trifa to jus-
able" that Valerian Trifa, dox Romanian Episcopate in tice," Rabbi Rosen stated.
Speaking before the Euro-
pean affairs committee of the
Anti-Defamation League of
Bnai Brith, Rabbi Rosen re-
called how he witnessed the
pogrom in Bucharest in Jan-
uary 1941. The rabbi said it
was instigated by Trifa, who
was reported to be a leader
of the Legion of the Arch-
angel Michael—a youth wing
of the Iron Guard.
Rabbi Rosen said he was

Aliyah Month 1974
February 10th to March 10th

The time is now.

"Something is beginning to
move" concerning Trifa's
case in the U.S.A., the rabbi
noted. He referred to a 20-
year effort on the part of
the ADL and other Jewish
groups to institute a re-
evaluation of Trifa's status
as a naturalized U.S. citizen.
Currently the Immigration
and Naturalization Services
of the Justice Department is
deciding if a full-scale inves-
tigation of the case should
be made.

The Yom Kippur War brought home to us more than
ever how few we are and how vital it is for us to grow
and to grow quickly.
In those days of bloody fighting and of isolation, we
drew courage and strength from the stand of the Jew-
ish people, which demonstrated in its acts of identi-
fication with us that we are indeed one people. It is
hard to express in words how much this strengthened
our spirit.
But that is not enough. The meaning of a Jewish
State is first and foremost an aliyah-oriented State,

a State to which thousands of our brethren will im-
migrate and in which they will be absorbed.
A strong Israel, an Israel whose future and fate are
in her own hands—means an Israel in which many
millions of Jews are building their homes. For us,
aliyah is our life-blood.
Confident in our own stand, convinced of our in-=
herent ability to overcome all difficulties, believing in
the Jewish people, I call upon you: Come to Israel
and build the Land.

Prime Minister Melt.


Today, more than ever, Israel needs Jews who will come on Aliyah and join us—with their talent, energy,
professional skills, experience and devotion—in building a free Jewish society, a commonwealth founded
on values and deeds that shall attract every Jew.
Therefore, Israel today ap .ieals to Jews everywhere: Let all those whose hearts are attuned to the call of
Jewish history and who are prepared to back Israel without fear or hesitation—let them and their families
emigrate to Israel now.
Come and join us in the thousands.
Stand with us in the most fateful struggle in the history of the Jewish people.
Immigration to Israel today means: Jewish self-realization in its highest form: the-practice of Zionism
to the highest degree. Respond to the challenge and come to build Israel—a superb edifice for future

Acting Chairman, World Zionist Organization


In answer to Prime Minister Meir's plea for increased
aliyah, as well as that of Mr. Leon Duizin of the World
Zionist Organization, we call upon American Jews
throughout our land to participate in all the activities

tional effort in behalf of aliyah will be observed by
over 2,000 educational meetings in some 300 Amer-
ican communities. Aliyah Month will be officially

5 Convicted in Boushicki Trial
to Appeal to Norway High Court

Let us play the free man's
part in the modern organiza- 'Children of God' Sect
tion of freedom.—Horace M. Peddles Hate Paper;



Semitic literature is now be-
ing distributed in Latin
American capitals by mem-
bers of the Children of God
Founded in 1968 in Hun-
tington BeBach, Calif., by
David Berg (alias Moses
David), the sect has recently
expanded its activities
throughout Latin America.
The Anti-Defamation League
of Bnai Brith reports that
the controversial group now
has centers in Mexico City,
Guatemala, Caracas, Bogota,
Quito, Lima, Buenos Aires
and Rio de Janeiro.
The Children of God, who
preach an ultra-fundamental-
ist theology and live in corn-
munes, distribute in Spanish
translation the same anti-Is-
rael and anti-Semitic litera-
ture which it also distributes
in the U.S., including several
pamphlets which laud Presi-
dent Muammar Qaddafi of
Arnold Forster, the ADL
associate director and gen-
eral counsel, said the militant
cult has recently published
and begun distributing such
anti-Jewish a n d anti-Israel
pamphlets as "The A r a b
Wall" and "Israel Invaded."
He said "The Arab Wall"
is "saturated with raw anti-
Semitism," falsely describe
the United States as being
"Jewish-controlled and Jew-
ish-operated," and calls on
God to "help the Arabs" and
"punish the Jews."
New York State Atty. Gen.
Louis J. Lefkowitz, after a
10-month investigation by the
charity frauds bureau, said
in an interim report that ac-
tions of the group "should
not be permitted to be hidden
behind the facade of religion
. . . they should come under
the umbrella of state regula-
tion and scrutiny."
He accused the Children of
God of brainwashing, forced
membership, begging a n d
personality distortion and said
the group is breaking state
secular laws.

This is the way of gossip-
ers: They commence with
praise and end with deroga-

to five years to five of the
six defendants in the so-
called Boushicki murder trial
here last weekend.
Three of the defendants,
Abraham Gehmer, 36, a for-
mer Israeli diplomat, South
African-born Sylvia Rafael,
36, and Danish-born Dan Aer-
bel, 27, were all found guilty
of conspiring to murder Mor-
occan waiter Ahmed Bou-
shicki last summer in Lille-
hammer in eastern Norway.
Aerbel was sentenced to
five years' imprisonment,
while Gehmer and Rafael,
who have admitted entering
Norway on false passports,
received 51/2 year terms.

Swedish - born Marianne
Gladnikoff, 27, was sentenced
to 2 1/2 years' imprisonment
for being an accomplice to
the crime and for carrying
out espionage activities, while
Zwi Steinberg, 30, got a one-
year term for handling com-
munications for the liquida-
tion group. A sixth defendant
in the case, Michael Dorf, 30,
was acquitted.
In its judgment, the special
jury, consisting of three
judges and four laymen, con-
eluded that Mossad was be-
hind the espionage operation
and liquidation of Boushicki,
believed by the defendants to
have been associated with
Black September.
Attorneys for the five con-
victed Jews have two weeks
in which to file their appeals.
