U.S. Interference is Denied
in Israel's Kadum Decision

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Foreign Minister Yigal Al-
Ion strongly rebutted
charges Wednesday that the
government had been influ-
enced by American interfer-
ence when it decided, 10
days ago, to move the Kad-
um settlement elsewhere.
Replying to a motion in
the Knesset by Likud's Yit-
zhak Shamir, Allon said
there was no U.S. "inter-
ference." The Israel Cabinet

Allon stressed that the

Kadum decision was
"unequivocal." An alter-

to the settlers "within a

Arabs Sponsoring
Anti-Israel Chess

NEW YORK (JTA) — The
United States Chess Federa-
tion, which originally in-
tended to not participate in
the fall International Chess
Olympiad in Israel, reversed
its decision after the Arabs
announced that they would
sponsor an "Against Israel
Chess Olympic" in Tripoli,
Libya, to coincide with the
Olympiad in Israel Oct.
24-Nov. 15.
At the same time, the
USCF said it would not par-
ticipate in the Arab games.
Both decisions were taken
Sunday during the USCF
board meeting in Windsor
Locks, Conn.

E. B. Edmondson, the
USCF director, said the
Arab-sponsored games
pose "the greatest poten-
tial danger to the goals
and existence of the Inter-
national Chess Federa-
tion."

Sheik•

According to USCF offi-
cials, the Arab Libyan
Chess Federation would pay
the travel costs of partici-
pants to Tripoli plus $8 ex-
penses daily during the
23-day event.

AJCongress Helps
Change Exam Date
for Shomrei Shabat

UNITED NATIONS
(JTA) — Israeli delegates at
the UN said that the Arabs
suffered a "great defeat"
when Black African dele-
gates blocked a move by the
Arabs to include statements
equating Zionism with rac-
ism in two resolutions
adopted by the United Na-
tions Economic and Social
Council (ECOSOC). The
move by the African states
indicated a widening rift
between them and the Ar-
abs.

NEW YORK — The
American Jewish Congress
announced success in its ef-
forts to persuade the Ameri-
can Board of Ophthalmol-
ogy to re-schedule a certifi-
cation examination so that
it is not held on a Saturday.
The nationwide test had
originally been scheduled to
be held Friday through
Tuesday, May 7-10. The
next examination that did
not include a Saturday was
scheduled for October 1977
— an 18-month delay that
would have caused consider-
able hardship to physicians
awaiting certification as
ophthalmologists.
As a result of protests by
the American Jewish Con-
gress in behalf of a group of
Orthodox Jewish physi-
cians, the board agreed to
change the dates of its De-
cember examination in Chi-
cago to Wednesday through
Friday, Dec. 1-3.

Black African Delegates Block
Anti-Zionist Move in the UN

The two resolutions, how-
ever, do contain anti-Zionist
statements by implication.
One endorsed all UN deci-
sions "bearing on racism,
racial discrimination, apar-
theid, decolonialization and
self-determination" which
in effect includes last year's
General Assembly resolu-
tion equating Zionism with
racism.

This is also true of the
second resolution which, in
approving a request from
Ghana for funds for a con-
ference on racism. said the

meeting would take steps to
secure the "full and univer-
sal implementation of
United Nations decisions
and resolutions on racism."

Algeria wanted to
strengthen the connection
between anti-Zionism and
the two resolutions. But it
was opposed at a private
meeting by African na-
tions who feared the anti-
Zionist move would ham-
per efforts aimed at south-
ern Africa, according to
sources.

The two resolutions were
adopted by a 40-1 vote with
Canada casting the lone
negative ballot. The U.S. did
not participate and eight
West European countries in
the 54-member body ab-
stained.

Meanwhile, in Istanbul,
foreign ministers from 40
Moslem nations, winding up
the seventh Islamic Confer-
ence, called for Israel's ex-
pulsion from the UN and
equated Zionism with rac-
ism.
