JIM. 'Applauds' Attack on Soviet Mission, Denies Responsibility

Jewish Defense League has
issued a statement saying
that "we heartily applaud"
the firing of several bullets
into an apartment building
in the Soviet UN Mission's
residence • in the Riverdale
section of New York last
week but denied any connec-
tion with the Jewish Armed
Resistance, the group that
claimed responsibility for
the shootings.
At the same time, the
Soviet Mission to the UN
complained to the world
body about the incident
which it termed "a terrorist
act." In a letter to the U.S.
Mission to the UN, the So-
'Os demanded that the

U.S. identify and punish
those responsible for firing
two to four shots into the
lobby _of-the apartment
building in the Soviet com-
pound and pay the Soviet
Mission for damages.
Police who investigated
said that two to four bullets
were fired into the lobby of
the compound's apartment
building. There were no in-
juries. The Soviet letter,
however, noted that one of
the bullets passed very
close to a mission employe
who was in the lobby.
Shortly after the firings
a woman telephoned the
press to say that the Jeiv-
ish Armed Resistance took
responsibility for the act.

an active member of the
Nazi Party in 1933, wrote a
book on the Nazi movement
in Switzerland and served as
Commissar for Nazi indus-

War II.
Zeidel has urged Israeli
Rotarians to protest his
nomination and to threaten
to quit the world-wide fra-
ternity of businessmen if
Wick is elected.
Lucien Harris, gcATernor
`of the Israeli Rotary Club,
has already cabled Rotary
International headquart-
ers in Evanston, Ill. that
Wick's Nazi past disquali-
fies him from office. Zeidel
has also asked the Weiz-

to withdraw an invitation
sent to Wick to attend the
dedication of the new
French House at the Insti-
tute in Rehovot. The invi-
tation apparently was sent
before the information on
Wick's alleged Nazi activi-
ties was disclosed here.
Israelis are not the only
ones protesting. Dutch Ro-
tarians have reportedly
threatened to bre-ak away
from the international or-
ganization if Wick is elected
and Belgian and Swiss Ro-
tarians are said to be ac-
tively opposed to his nomi-

Canada to Stop
Entry of Terrorists

Canadian House of Com-
mons has passed a tempo-
rary but tough new measure
aimed at preventing the en-
try of terrorists into Canada
this year. The Temporary
Immigration Security Act
was adopted at the urging of
Immigration Minister Rob-
ert Andres who warned that
"time is of the essence" and
"we need this and we need it
The law will permit Cana-
dian officials to bar admis-
sion to any visitors "likely to
engage in acts of violence
that would or might endan-
ger the lives or safety of per-
sons in Canada."
The measure will expire
Dec. 31 but it will be in force
during the Olympic games
in Montreal this summer
and the United Nations
Habitat Conference in Van-
couver in June.

bigail Minis was the matriarch of a dis-
t inguished family in the early history
of Georgia, and was a Revolutionary
patriot of classical note. Born in Eng-
land in 1711, Abigail at age 22, left the security
of London to settle in the new colony of Georgia.
She came with her husband, Abraham, two
daughters, Leah and Esther, and a brother
Abraham was a man of means and followed
mercantile pursuits in the new world. His
name is on the first real estate deed recorded
in Georgia, and his son Phillip was the first
European child born in that colony. Abraham
died in 1757 leaving his estate and business to
the capable Abigail who increased the inheri-
tance manifold during her long and fruitful
life of 96 years.
In 1779, the American high command decided
to recapture Savannah from the British. Gen-
eral Lincoln selected Phillip Minis and Levi

was launched, supplies were sorely needed and

Army to be a poor credit risk, but her beloved

leaving Abigail in a very precarious position.

they acted against her she Managed to leave

Her son, Phillip, early in the Revolution, was
branded a "vile rebel" and'blacklisted; he could
never hold office under any Royal governor.
Phillip Minis acted as Pay Master and Com-
missary General of the Continental Army in
1776. He personally advanced $11,000 for sup-
plies to Virginia and North Carolina troops.
He later served as President of.Mikvah Israel
