`Selective Morality'

GENEVA (JTA) — A
battle shaped up in the
United Nations Commission
on Human Rights meeting
here recently over the issue
of "selective morality" in
focussing on alleged viola-
tions of human rights in cer-
tain countries while ignor-
ing them in others.
The commission opened a
five-week session with an
agenda topped by "human
rights violations" in Arab
territories occuped by Israel
nd in Chile.
The U.S. representative,
'1,eonard Garment, declared,
"If we care only- about some
human rights and violations
in some countries, then we
do not care about human
rights anywhere."
He said "We must reject
the temptation to submit
to one political bias or an-
other in expressing con-
cern for human rights . . .
The way this commission
addresses the question of
torture and the issue of
political prisoners is a cen-
tral test of selective moral-
ity."
Garment, an adviser to
Daniel P. Moynihan, who
submitted his resignation
recently as U.S. Ambassa-
dor to the UN, urged top
priority for a declaration
against religious intolerance
which, he said, would prove
the commission's concern
with all aspects of human
rights rather than those
"which serve the interests or
satisfy the aims of disparate
voting coalitions."

Mixed Marriage
Study Undertaken

NEW YORK — The
American Jewish Commit-
tee announced plans for the
first nationwide study of
marriages between Jews
and non-Jews, which will
try to uncover the psycho-
logical and social effects of
such marriages on the part-
ners, on the children, and on
the Jewish community.
The study is being in-
stituted on a pilot basis
in six communities: New
York City, Westchester,
Nassau-Suffolk, Philadel-
phia, Cleveland and San
Francisco.
Plans for the study were
made public by Mervin H.
Riseman, chairman of the
Committee's Jewish com-
munal affairs commission.
Outlining its objectives, he
explained that "in the con-
text of the future of the
Jewish community and its
e-.hanging needs, the study
will develop a core of infor-
mation on the experiences
of intermarried couples
with Jewish institutions
and agencies in their corn-
munities and their attitudes
toward them. It will also ex-
plore how children of such
marriages are being raised,
the children's attitudes, the
unmet needs of such fami-
lies, and how the agencies
and institutions of the Jew-
ish community might meet
those needs."

One should always be one
of the persecuted rather
than of the persecutors.
—Talmud

Be modest and lovable,
when thou are compelled to
oppose thy friend, and be
humble before everybody,
particularly before mem-
bers of thy household.
—Derech Eretz Zuta
