Kurds Ask U.S. Jews for 'Support

UNITED NATIONS (JTA)
—Two representatives of the
Kurdistan Democratic Party
in Iraq, headed by Mustafa
Barzani, who came to UN
headquarters last week to
present Secretary General
Kurt Waldheim with a mem-
orandum on the Kurds, were
to meet with two Jewish lead-
ers in New York.
Interviewed by the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency the two
Kurds—one identified as Cha-
lak Jewanroyee, a teacher
presently living in the U.S.,
and the other, a dentist, who

declined to be identified by
name—said they were seek-
ing through their meeting
with the Jewish leaders to
bring "the plight of the Kurds
in Iraq to the attention of the
public in this country."
The two said that any at-
tempt to draw the attention
of the UN Commission on
Human Rights to the oppres-
sion of the Kurds in Iraq has
been automatically "blocked
by the Arab states and their
friends from the African
bloc."
"The Jews in Iraq received
a lot of help from the Kurds,"
the two contended, pointing
out that Iraqi Jews were as-
sisted in leaving Iraq.
According to the two Kurd
representatives, Israel and
the Kurds have 'a lot in com-
mon. Both have the same
"enemy" who tries to deprive
them of independence and
self-fulfillment, they said.

CHICAGO (JTA) - Special the women were attempting trial for the two Jewish men land, chairman of the CCAR's

memorial prayers for six
Syrian Jews four women
and two men — murdered
last month were offered Sun-
day by Chicago-area congre-
gations during traditional
Yizkor services, at the urging
of the Chicago Board of
Rabbis and the Chicago Rab-
binical Council.
Prayers were also said for
the welfare of 4,500 Jews in
Syria, remnants of a com-
munity of 40,000 in 1947, most
of whom have fled to other
lands.
The services were part of
a national effort to call atten-
tion to the plight of Syrian
Jewry.
The four dead women were
murdered in a peaceful
Christian-Jewish demonstra-
tion against government anti-
Semitism. The bodies of the
men were found a week later.
Syria claims the women's
bodies were found near the
Lebanon border and implied

to cross the border — a right
denied Syrian Jews. The
French daily, Figaro, said
the bodies were found in
Damascus.
Syrian authorities allege
that two Jews, now held
prisoner, responsible mem-
bers of the local Jewish com-
munity, are part of a band
of assassins responsible for
the slayings of the four
women.
On Wednesday, an emer-
gency rally for Syrian Jews
was held in front of the Syr-
ian Mission to the United
Nations. It was conducted as
a memorial services for the
four murdered Jewish
women.
Rabbi Israel Miller, chair-
man of the Conference of
Presidents of Major Ameri-
can Jewish Organizations,
and chairman of the event,
said that in addition to me-
morializing the four women,
they are seeking: "a fair

small bomb exploded at the
Lebanese consulate her e
April 13 causing little dam-
age. The consulate, on the
seventh floor of a Hollywood
Boulevard building, was un-
occupied at the time.
Just before the explosion
an anonymous caller to the
Los Angeles news agency;
City News Service, claimed
the bomb was a reprisal for
Thursday's terrorist attack
on Kiryat Shemona. The call-
er concluded with "Never
Again," the slogan of the
Jewish Defense League.
On Friday, five masked
men entered the Arab in-
formation center in down-
town San Francisco shortly
before noon, emptied filing
cabinets and desks and then
fled without harming either
the information center direc-
tor, Inraham Tawasha, or
his secretary, according to
police. Later, a news media
office received an anony-
mous call declaring that the
raid was in protest against
the massacre of civilians at
Kiryat Shemona. According
to one report, the caller con-
cluded with the words
"Never Again."
The Jewish Community Re-
lations Council of San Fran-
cisco and the Bay Area is-
sued a statement, in response
to requests from local media,
declaring that "up to this
time the police have not
identified the perpetrators of
this inexcusable act. We
hope they will be appre-
hended. Until that time, it
would be irresponsible to
conjecture wildly about their

identity. Whoever did it, the
organized Jewish community
abhors such criminal acts of
violence and condemns any
group or individuals who
may commit them. That has
been our constantly and pub-
licly reiterated position."

30 Arab Prisoners
Returned to Egypt

TEL AVIV (JTA) — About
30 Arab civilian prisoners
serving prison terms for
sabotage or subversive ac-
tivities were released and
handed over to Egyptian au-
thorities at a UN checkpoint
on the Balooza-Kantara road.
They were the second
group of civilians returned
to Egypt since the Yom Kip-
pur War. A third group is
expected to be released
shortly.
The operation w a s con-
ducted under the auspices of
the Red Cross whose repre-
sentatives had ascertained
previously that the prisoners
wanted to go to Egypt with
their families.
Meanwhile, in Cairo, the
newspaper Akhbar el Youm
reported Egyptian intelli-
gence assisted in the escape
last month of two Palestin-
ians imprisoned in Israel on
charges of spying for Egypt.

accused by the Syrian au-
thorities of killing the women
— an obviously trumped-up
charge — and, the right of
the remaining 4,500 Jews to
leave Syria, where they live
under harsh, restrictive reg-
ulations tantamount to house-
arrest."

W. Thac her Longstretb,

president of the Greater Phil-
adelphia Chamber of Cotn-
merce and chairman of the
Committee of Concern, stated
in a letter to Haissam Kelani,
Syrian ambassador to the
United Nations, that the right
of Jews to leave Syria "is a
fundamental humanitarian
question and should not be
confused with political issues
in the Middle East."
Rabbi Joseph B. Glaser,
executive vice president of
the CCAR, and Rabbi
Stephen S. Goldrich of Cleve.

Committee on Jews in Arab
Lands, called for an inter-
national campaign to f r e e
Syrian Jews and noted that
the 1,100 Reform rabbis of
the CCAR and their 715 syn-
agogues in North America
were being mobilized to join
with like-minded groups in
their communities in an all-
out campaign "until Syrian
Jews are permitted their
human rights of free emigra-
tion."

police, ,Karel Bacilek, likened
to Stalin's Beria since the
Communist takeover of
Czechoslovakia in 1948, died
last month at age 77.

ity, Bacilek was responsible
for the Slansky political show
trials in Prague during the
Stalin period in the 1950s.
Members of the Communist
Party of Czechoslovakia,
most of them of Jewish ex-
traction, were branded as
"Zionists" and members of
a Jewish conspiracy against
the Communist regime in
Czechoslovakia, and were
eventually hanged.
