Church Seeks Cappucci's Release

By MOSHE RON

Jewish News Special Israel
Correspondent

Every few weeks Greek-
Catholic personalities ap-
peal to the Israeli Govern-
ment to free Archbishop
Hilarion Cappucci, who was
sentenced to 12 years in
prison for smuggling arms
for the Palestinian terror-
ists.
The Patriarch of the
Greek-Catholic Church in
the Middle East, George
Hakim, is doing everything
to obtain a release of Cap-
pucci from prison. He an-
nounced recently that the

private doctor of Cappucci,
Dr. Anton Torozi, has exam-
ined the Archbishop in
prison and found out that he
is ill and that a further stay
in prison could endanger his
health.
Hakim appealed to the
Vatican and to the Interna-
tional Red Cross to induce
the Israeli government to
free Cappucci.

Cappucci has com-
plained that he does not
wish to be in a special soli-
tary cell in Ramle prison.

His private doctor pub-
lished an announcement
that if the Archbishop
would continue to be iso-
lated his health would be
endangered.
Cappucci was examined
by the prison's Dr. Cohen
Hadad and he said the
Archbishop could continue
to,be in a solitary cell.
Members of the Greek
Catholic Church who visited

Cappucci report that he is
full of complaints. He de-
mands transfer to a bigger
cell, that he be allowed to be
each Sunday among Chris-
tian prisoners and that the
warden should address him
as "Archbishop".

'They said the Arch-
bishop was in a small cell
but had the necessary
comforts. He does not
work like his fellow pris-
oners.

The leaders of the Greek-
Catholic Church in Eastern
Jerusalem and Haifa are
convinced that Cappucci will
be freed during the next six
months. They are ready to
express to the Israeli au-
thorities their regrets for
the deeds of the Archbishop
but they are not ready to
issue a public statement
about it. The Israel authori-
ties deny the reports.

Armenian and Jewish Roles in M.E.
Art Studied at New York Symposium

NEW YORK — Prof. Ri-
chard Dekmejian of the
State University of New
York at Bingamton told a
seminar recently, that the
Armenian community in
the Middle East has to pre-
sent itself as a religious and
not a national minority to
ensure its physical survival
in the Islamic Middle East.
Speaking at a seminar on
minorities in the Middle
East, sponsored by the aca-
demic committee of the
World Jewish Congress
(American Section) in con-
junction with the program
in Southwest Asian and
North African Studies
(SWANA) of the State Uni-
versity of New York at Bin-
ghamton, Prof. Dekmejian
continued that it was when
the Armenians in the Otto-
man Empire were perceived
as a national group fighting
for an independent Armen-
ian state that the first ex-
ample of genocide, the mas-
sacre of up to 2,000,000 Ar-
menians by the Turks, oc-
curred.
Prof. Hayirfi J. Cohen of
the Hebrew University,

JNF Official in U.S.
for Forestry Talks

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Shimon Benshemesh, direc-
tor general of the Jewish
National Fund in Jerusa-
lem, and chairman of the
Land Use Research Insti-
tute in Israel, has just con-
cluded a 14-day visit to the
United States. He discussed
problems of land use with
faculty and students of
Princeton, Syracuse, Boston
and the University of Wis-
consin.
While in Washington, he
consulted with officials of
the Forest and National
Parks Service regarding the
implementation of the
American Bicentennial Na-
tional Park in Israel, the
project of the JNF of Amer-
ica, marking the 200th anni-
versary of the American
Revolution, to be estab-
lished southwest of Jerusa-
lem.

presently at Brooklyn Col-
lege, who spoke on the
"Political Situation of Jews
in the Middle East," empha-
sized that Zionism had
never become a significant
factor among Arab Jews. "It
was," he said, "persecution
and not Zionist idealism
that brought them to Israel.
They left not because of
European ideology, but be-
cause of intolerablecondi-
tions in the Arab countries
in which they lived."

Prof. Matti Moosa of
Gannon College, Erie, Pa.,
took issue with Prof.
Cohen. Referring to the
latter's interpretation of
the pogrom in Baghdad in
1941, Prof. Moosa said the
reason was not anti-Semi-
tism, but that the Jews of
the city had organized
public demonstrations in
favor of the British at the
same time that the Iraqis
themselves were demon-
strating in favor of the
Germans.

Prof. Ellen Joyce of the
Armenian University,
Washington, said that the
Arabs in Israel were experi-
encing an identity crisis,
attempting to be good Is-
raeli citizens enjoying one of
the highest standards of liv-
ing in the Middle East, and
at the same time knowing
that they were Arabs, sym-
pathizing and often identi-
fying with the Pan-Arabism
of their Arab brethren out-
side Israel.

Prof. Cohen pointed out
that throughout the centu-
ries Jews had been assigned
tolerated minority status so
that they could exist as a
religious minority, but their

lot was never a happy one.
