Pan Am Defends Iran Ties, Flights to Damascus

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Pan American World Air-
ways declared Tuesday it
would not allow its "Jewish
market to slide down be-
cause of misunderstand-
ings" on the part of Jews
about the airline's financial
dealings with Israel and its
flights to Syria.
Addressing a press con-
ference for Jewish media,
Stanley Gewirtz, vice presi-
dent of Pan_Am's public af-
fairs department, said the
meeting was arranged be-
cause Jews had cancelled
bookings with Pan Am after
the government of Iran of-
fered a loan of $200 million
to the airline and purchased
50 percent of the airline's
hotel company stock.

Gewirtz said that Jews,

States, but also in Western

tomers" and that the air-
line was not "involved in
anything anti-Jewish or
anti-Israel."

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Is-
raeli maritime circles are
pondering the effects that
the reopening of the Suez
Canal will have on Israel's
merchant marine and the
port of Eilat, Israel's outlet
on the Red Sea.
In the wake of President
Anwar Sadat's announce-
ment Saturday that Egypt
will reopen its waterway on
June 5, though denying ac-
cess to Israeli ships or Is-
raeli cargoes, directors of
the Zim Lines, Israel's na-
tional shipping company,
will meet with political ex-
perts next week.
The growth of Eilat,
which expanded as a seaport
during the eight years the
Suez Canal was shut down,
may be affected by the loss
their resumption because
of foreign trade that passed

to a new Middle East war
and a possible confronta-
tion with the U.S.

The envoys reportedly
tried to convince the Israeli
leaders that Secretary of
State Henry A. Kissinger's
step-by-step approach had
definitely failed and there-
fore Geneva offered the only
opportunity to reach a set-
tlement in the Mideast;
sought to allay Israeli fears
by suggesting Soviet guar-
antees of Israel's pre-June 4,
1967 borders and the re-
sumption of diplomatic rela-
tions between Israel and the
USSR; and reportedly said
Moscow would not insist on
the participation of the Pa-
lestine Liberation Organiza-
tion in Geneva if Israel
agreed that PLO represent-
atives could be included as
members of other Arab de-
legations.

Holocaust Film
Made Available

TEL AVIV — A documen-
tary film on the Holocaust
has been produced by Yit-
zhak Katznelson Ghetto
Fighters Museum in Israel.
It is based on original film
and photographs made by
the Nazis in the 1930s and
1940s.

Entitled "The 81st Blow,"
the two-hour movie is avail-
able in 16mm and 35mm
versions in English, French
or Spanish. For informa-
tion, write the Ghetto

rael.

believe the canal fees
charged by Egypt may be a
factor in reducing the
amount of traffic diverted
from Eilat, they agree that
steps will have to be taken
to provide Eilat with mod-
ern transportation links to
the Mediterranean.

These may include im-
proving' the existing 'high-
way connections and possi-
bly the construction of an -
Eilat-Mediterranean rail-
road. Experts are also ex-
pected to recommend -
speedy establishmen
container services and facili-
ties at Eilat to make that
port an attractive alterfi-a-
tive to the Suez Canal.

,

Foreign - Minister Yigal
Allon said that the reopen-
ing of the canal was not a
gesture toward Israel but an
economic decision that
would bring Egypt $1 billion
a year.
