Saxbe's Clarification Fails to End
Widespread DemandsThat He Resin

(Continued from Page 1)
priest, declared that "noth-
ing less than a complete re-
pudiation will suffice." Mrs.
Holtzman termed Saxbe's re-
marks "grossly inaccurate"
and "brutally insensitive of
the history of anti-Semitism
throughout the world." The
congresswoman, in a tele-
gram to Saxbe, stated: "It is
genuinely appalling to me
that you, as the highest legal
officer in this country, could
so easily adopt the concept
of 'Jewish Communist,' a
catch phrase that has been
a chief tool of anti-Semites
since Nazi Germany."
Howard M. Squadron,
chairman of the American
Jewish Congress national
governing council, urged
President Nixon to remove
Saxbe from office if the Jus-
tice Deparement chief does
not himself resign and ac-
cused Saxbe of "group li-
bel" for "repeating an old
and discredited c a l u m n y
against the Jewish commu-
nity." Squadron added that
Saxbe's original statement
and his "clarification" that
followed "demonstrate a way
of thinking that classifies
people by ethnic stereotype."
Earlier, Rabbi Alexander
Schindler, president of the
Union of- American Hebrew
Congregations, also called
for Saxbe's resignation or
public apology.
Other Jewish organizations
that assailed Saxbe were the
Anti-Defamation League of
Bnai Brith, the Jewish Labor
Committee and the Jewish
War Veterans.
Mr. Saxbe's Myths:
NYTimes Editorial
In an editorial, "Mr. Sax-
be's Myths," the New York
Times stated on Wednesday:
The Attorney General's list
of subversive organizations
is, like all punitive rosters
drawn up by fearful govern-

ments, a shameful page in
the nation's annals. An At-
torney General with the good
sense to scrap that useless
and vindictive document need
offer no explanation or apol-
ogy. How, then, is one to
explain the thought process,
if any, that prompted At-
torney General William B.
Saxbe to justify his sensible
w.Fe

that the perpetrators of
Watergate ought merely to
be given "clown suits" for
their "ridiculous" actions. At
another time, he chose to dis-
associate himself from the
call by Elliot Richardson, his
predecessor, for a de-politi-
cized Justice Department.
Most recently, in a highly
untimely get-tough response
to Patricia Hearst's kidnap-
pers, he was called "damn
near irresponsible" by the
victim's father, in a gross
understatement.
It is fair to say that there
has been no sign of malice
in Mr. Saxbe's utterances —
only a consistent show of
hairbrain obtuseness, mixed
with ignorance. But his un-
thinking statements suggest
strongly the limitations of
mind that Mr. Saxbe brings
to a once-revered post that
demands judgement, balance,
discernment — and common
sense.

action by suggesting that the
list had been rendered obso-
lete because Communism has
lost its attractiveness to "the
Jewish intellectual, who was
in those (McCarthy) days
very enamored of the Com-
munist party"?
This and subsequent non
sequiturs, while explaining
nothing whatsoever about the
need for the lists in question,
offer - some insight—however
blurred — into Mr. Saxbe's
mind. The picture that
emerges is one of judgments
formed of a jumble of stereo-
types and ill.cligested myths.
The discovery of Mr. Sax-
be's lack of perception can
come as no surprise. He is
the man who once thought

Police immediately round-

vicinity but all but two were
released by noon. The blast
was the fi • terrorist act in
West Jerusalem in many
months.
There have been several re-
cent cases of sabotage in the
Arab areas of East Jerusa-
lem. Police are taking pre-
cautionary measures against
a possible upsurge of terorist
activity here during the Pass-
over holiday.

Terrorist Bomb on Egged Bus to Relate His
Kills Child, Injures 4 Others Israel Views

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Ter-
rorist acts took the life of an
11-year-old boy on,,an Egged
bus, injured four other pas-
sengers and did serious dam-
age to a citrus packing plant
near Gaza and an electric
power station in Nablus. A
homemade bomb exploded in
the crowded Hamishbar de-
partment store on Allenby
Rd., causing minor damage
but no casualties.
The bus bomb victim was
Ronny Kosnitzky of Eilat who
was fatally injured while
traveling from Eilat to Zigh-
ron Yaacov to attend a seder
at his grandparent's home.
His mother, Dina, 32 and
sister, Orly, 12 were injured
as were two other passengers
when the bomb exploded in
the baggage compartment
shortly before the bus reach-
ed Zichron Yaacov.
Police are trying to as-
semble composite pictures of
three Arab passengers who
left the this when it stopped
at Hadera. They were sus-
pected of leaving behind the
bomb concealed in a valise.
Earlier, a group of masked
terrorists attacked two

guards at an Israeli-owned
citrus rocking plant near
_Gaza, placed explosives and
set fire to the building de-
stroying its machinery. Dam-
age was estimated at 2,000,-
000 (about $500,000). The ter-
rorist scrawled a message
on the walls saying that they
had acted on behalf of the
Palestinian liberation forces.
Part of Nablus on the West
Bank was blacked out last
night after a barrel of fuel
exploded setting fire to the
local , power station. Police
are -t r y i n g to determine
whether the explosion was
the work of terrorists.
In Jerusalem a time bomb
that could have done severe
damage in the city's down-
town district was dismantled
by police bomb squad ex-
perts four hours before it
was • set to explode.

JNF Buys Arab-Owned Land
in Occupied Areas of Israel

JERUSALEM (JTA)—The
director general of the Jew-
ish National Fund disclosed
to the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency that the JNF is and
has been buying land from
Arab owners in the adminis-
tered territories near Jeru-
salem and is assisting indi-
vidual Jews "who wish to
buy land" there.
According to Shimon Ben
Shemesh, this activity of the
land reclamation and de-
velopment agency is inde-
pendent of any cabinet
resolutions and is undertaken
in the knowledge that some
of the land could conceivably
be returned to Jordan — or
to Palestinians — in the
framework of a final peace
settlement.
Asked what would happen
in that eventuality, Ben She-
mesh replied that "exchange
bargains will then take
place." He indicated that
some of the Arab owners
want to sell their land pre-
cisely because they think it
_ will be returned to them

Judd Arnett, Free Press
columnist, will present "An-
other Look at Israel" 8:30
p.m. Wednesday at the Bir-
mingham Community House.
Arnett will tell of his experi-
ences and insights from a re-
cent trip to Israel. The public
is invited. A native of Ohio,
Arnett began his newspaper
career at age 12, when he
worked as a printer's devil
on the Liberty Center, O.,
Press. He has since owned
three weekly newspapers and
worked for two other dailies.
Arnett has been with the
Free Press since 1959 and
figures he writes 250,000
words a year, "the equiva-
lent of three novels."

some day as a result of a
political settlement.
He said the JNF purchases
were mainly in the regions
near Bethlehem and Ramal-
lah occupied by Israel in the
1967 Six-Day War. He stressed
that these purchases have
nothing to do with possible
annexation of the areas.

The winds and waves are
always on the side of the
ablest navigators.
