Israel Tourism Ministry Seeks
Increase of Tourists For 1975

Israel Minister of Tourism
Moshe Kol said here MondAy
that the biggest problem his
ministry faces is "enlarging
tourism."
Speaking at a press con-
ference at the Shiawassee
Hotel, Kol said one way this
problem will be solved is by
encouraging non-Jewish pil-
grims to visit Israel during
1975, which was declared a
holy year by the Pope.
"Despite the terrorism,
Christian pilgrims continued
to come to Israel," Kol said.
"Last Christmas the largest
number ever of Christian
pilgrims visited I s r a e 1."
About 45 percent of all tour-
ists to Israel are non-Jews.
Kol, who had an audience
with the Pope to discuss trav-
el to the two holy cities,
Rome and Jerusalem, said
that Israel and Italy formed
an' agreement to "encourage

people of the world to visit
Rome and Jerusalem during
the holy year."
The agreement, made by
Alitalia (Italian) Airlines and
Israel's El Al Airlines, of-
fers a roundtrip package at
a reduced price for tourists
who visit the two cities.
Kol said that despite the
steady rate of tourism by
non-Jews from the U.S., the
biggest decline in tourism
worldwide was from the U.S.
— 10 percent. Europe showed
a small decline in tourism to
Israel, while Canada and
South Africa showed increas-
es.
In Detroit to address the
Prime Minister's Club for
State of Israel Bonds, Kol
also spoke to John Cardinal
Dearden in an effort to en-
courage non-Jewsish tourism.
Kol is in the U.S. for 10 days
to address various Israel
Bond events. Twenty Bond
subscriptions were received
at the Prime Minister's Club
dinner.
In New York last week Kol
charged the New York Board
of Rabbis with specific re-
sponsibility for encouraging
Jewish pilgrimage to the
Holy Land.
The minister noted that the
decrease in the U.S. traffic
to Israel seemed to be pri-
marily among the Jewish
market. Noting that only 15-
20 per cent of American Jews
have thus far visited Israel,
he called upon the rabbis to
"work hard in 1975 as it will
be a difficult year from a
number of standpoints."

It is not external rites that
win forgiveness, but inward
sincerity.—Talmud.

every on die Air

Rabbi Jonathan Plaut of
Temple Beth El, Windsor, is
capturing a good percentage
of the late Sunday night view-
ing audience there with his
program, "Religious Scope."
Rabbi at Beth El since
1970, Rabbi Plaut has con-
ducted the program, aired
11:15 p.m. Sundays on Chan-
nel 9 (CKLW-TV), for about
three years. He also has an
information pr o g r a m on
CKWW Radio at 9:05 a.m.
Sundays.
The son of the noted Rabbi
Gunther Plaut of Toronto, the
younger Rabbi Plaut is cap-
turing about 12 percent of the
viewing audience, according
to Canada's Bureau of Broad-
cast Measurement Rating.
He gets more viewers in
Windsor at that time than
Detroit's news programs and
the Lou Gordon Show, the
Windsor Star reported.
What is the reaction to his
show?
"I would have been un-
happy if the audience had
been very low, but the re-
sponse has been far better
than I expected. I get a very
good feedback from the com-
munity and the station has
received very few anti-
Semitic comments," he said.
Rabbi Plaut said he'd like
to expand in broadcasting
and is working on a history
of Windsor Jews.

W. German Leader Says Special
Re'ations With Israel 'Obsolete'

BONN (JTA)—The Secret-
ary General of the Free
Democratic Party believes
that West Germany's "spec-
ial relationship" with Israel
'las become obsolete and
should be replaced by a re-
lationship based on the dem-
ocratic institutions the two
countries hold in common.
Bangemann also said that
West Germany "should take
a more realistic attitude to-
ward the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization."
He said that while Israel
was justified in rejecting any
international recognition of
the PLO as long as Yasir
Arafat refuses to recognize
Israel, "a word of clarifica-
tion from Arafat" on this
subject would ensure the
PLO of observer status at
the planned European-Arab
dialogue on future relations
with Israel.
Regarding West Germany's
special relationship with the
Jewish state, stemming from
the Nazi past, Bangemann
said that "a moral obligation
to maintain a special rela-
tionship based on the past"
was "inadequate and frag-
ile."
He said efforts should be
made to put German-Israeli
policy on the basis of what

NEW YORK — India has
barred Israel and South Afri-
ca from attending a major
international table-ten-
nis tournament next month in
Calcutta.
The move accompanies In-
dia's decision to allow the
Palestine Liberation Organi-
zation to open an office in
New Delhi.
Roy Evans, president of
the Table Tennis Federation,
protested the action, but said
the tournament would be held
because it was too late to
change the site.
India has no relations with
South Africa but maintains
trade links with Israel. A
foreign ministry spokesman
said that the move was "in
accordance with the policy of
the government."
The Indian press, which has
generally applauded the gov-
ernment's action on the PLO,
disapproved of the move
against Israel.
Meanwhile, Israeli sports
authorities have called on the
Table Tennis Federation to
take steps to assure Israel's
participation. Israel pointed
out that the Indian decision
violated the international
sports 'agreement whereby a
country is allowed to host an
event only if 'all participants
are admitted.

the two countries had in com•
mon, such as similar demo
cratic constitutions and sup!
port for Israel's right to
exist.
The maintenance of spec-,
ial relations was "correct
and reasonable" in the past
but in the future this could
become merely 'a "hollow
phrase," Bangemann said.
