Visiting Israel Lawyers Report Rep. Chisholm's Aide Is Biased

Palestine Jewish Legion Gets Speaker

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Twelve Israeli lawyers visit-
ing Washington have re-
ported to Rep. Shirley Chis-
holm (D.NY) that her chief
assistant in her congression-
al office, Thaddeus- Garrett,
"upset and saddened us deep-
ly" by his "ideas, views and
opinions'' about Jews, Arabs
and the Holocaust.
The lawyers, who came
here as guests .of the Ameri-
can Bar Association's ex-
change program with the Is-
raeli Bar Association, asked
the congresswoman whether
ideas expressed by Garrett
"are shared by you, and if
not, whether you are aware
that Garrett expresses such
views, in your office, al-
leged in your behalf." The
letter was signed by E. Ru-
beinstein of Tel Aviv for him-
self and his colleagues.
In their letter to the con-
gresswoman, the Israelis
said that Garrett had "ac-
cused Israel of inhumane
acts toward the Arab refu-

guerrilla activities come up
in the press and TV because
the press and the media are
governed by Jews who are
on the boards of directors of
NBC, CBS, ABC and the
major newspapers," and re-
ferred to the 6,000,000 Jews
who were killed in the Hobo-

caust "as a fact which be-
longs to the past and should

NY Hadassah Moves Dance
From Hotel Because of PLO

NEW YORK (JTA)—The
New York chapter of Ha-
dassah moved its Sunday
dinner-dance at the Waldorf-
Astoria to the Hilton be-
cause of security problems
to the guests- due to the pres-
ence of Palestine Liberation
Organization representatives
at the hotel.
A letter to the hotel man-
agement signed by Olga L.
Mack, president, and Barba-
ra -Traub, dinner chairman,
stated:
"At the very time an im-
portant Jewish event-is to be
held in support of a medical
institution in Israel devoted
to the care and welfare of all
peoples in that area—be they
Jew or Arab—a set of turbu-
lent conditions have been
created which threaten the

security of our distinguished
guests and the large number
of people expected to attend.
"Such conditions w e r e
hardly contemplated as a per-
missible ambience for our
function. They are, in fact,
distinctly antithetical to that
function — a circumstance
which must be and should
have been known to you. We
deem this a serious and re-
grettable situation, particu-
larly in view of our past good
working relationship."
The event, honoring Dr.
Gisella Perl and Dr. Howard
A. Rusk was for the benefit
of the Hadassah Medical Or-
ganization. Over 800 people
attended. •

domestic affairs," the Ru-
beinstein letter said.
When the Israelis did not
receive a reply to their letter
dated Aug. 8, a Washington
lawyer, Martin Lobel, sent a
copy Sept. 4 to Rep. Chis-
holm. Answering Lobel's let-
ter, she replied Oct. 10 with
a copy of her "Presidential
Campaign Position Paper No.
2" on "the Middle East
Crisis," which she had dis-
tributed in her quest for the
Democratic nomination for
President in 1972.
The paper, she said, "de-
lineates my humanitarian
attitudes" towards the crisis.
"The human misery and un-
told suffering of the people
in that part of the world re-
quires a more sensitive and
sensible approach than a pro=
Arab, pro-Israel or anti-Arab,
anti-Israel rigid doctrinaire
position."
Without mentioning Gar-
rett's views, she declared:
"No one speaks for me with
respect to this touchy issue
except insofar as to commu-
nicate my humanitarian ap-
proach to problems in the
political arena which I un-
derstand is not always, po-
litiCally popular."
In another part of her re-
sponse, Rep. Chisholm said
that Garrett was "specifical-
ly called and invited by the
American Bar. Association to
speak to the visiting group,"
and that "he, himself, has
traveled extensively through-
out the Middle East on a
number of fact-finding mis-
sions."
