Petition Campaign Seeking to End Helsinki Violations

LOS ANGELES (JTA) —
A petition campaign, seek-
ing human rights for Soviet
Jews, was launched by the
Community Relations Com-
mittee's Commission on So-
viet Jewry when Dr. Alex-
ander -Luntz, one of the
activists who initiated the
petition in Moscow, visited
Los Angeles in April. The
campaign is part of a world-
wide movement to stop So-
viet violations of the Hel-
sinki accord.
Luntz, a distinguished
scientist and a key spokes-
man for activists when he
was in the Soviet Union,
was released last February
and is currently touring key
cities in the U.S. to mobilize
support for the "refu-
seniks."
The petition campaign
was signed by Sen. John
Tunney (D-Calif.), Mayor
Tom Bradley, and members
of the Los Angeles City
Council, led by Councilmen
John Ferraro and Zev Ya-
roslaysky. Leading mem-

Your thirst will tell you—
iced Tetley Tea is iced tea
at its best. Because Tetley
stands up to ice. Its flavor
just won't melt! Tetley is
made with tiny tea leaves
for big flavor. Deep rich
color, too. Since Tetley
starts out stronger it lasts
longer. No wonder the fa-
vorite in Jewish homes has
been Tetley since 1875—now
beginning a second century!

bers of the Christian clergy,
who met with Dr. Luntz at a
meeting arranged by the
American Jewish Commit-
tee, also signed the petition
and indicated they would
seek support from the
Christian community.

The petition, addressed
to Soviet Communist
Party Secretary Leonid
Brezhnev, calls on the
USSR to carry out specific
positive actions with re-
gard to the human rights
of Soviet Jews. One mil-
lion signatures are being
sought nationwide.

The Brussels Conference
presidium, meanwhile, will
establish a special center in
Paris to coordinate and ex-
change information on the
status of Soviet Jews, ac-
cording to Jewish Agency
chairman Yosef Almogi.
Almogi, who returned
from a presidium meeting
in Zurich, said that the pre-
sidium has been receiving
reports of increased anti-

Dayan Is Willing to Return
Kunitra Hills for Peace Pact

JERUSALEM — Israel's
former Defense Minister
Moshe Dayan said that if
Syria were ready to resettle
Kunitra, he would support
the return of the hills sur-
rounding the town.
For Syrian readiness to
sign an agreement on the
cessation of hostilities, he
even would advocate the re-

moval of two settlements in
the Golan.
Dayan, who was address-
ing members of Evron, a
Mapam kibutz near Naha-
riya, said he believed Presi-
dent Assad was beginning
to understand that he could
not simply tell Israel to get
out of the Golan, and not
make peace in return.

Meanwhile, on Sunday
in London, Dayan electri-
fied a crowd of nearly 20,-
000 who gathered at Earl's
Court amphitheater in a
powerful demonstration of
solidarity with Israel. The
rally, the largest of its
kind ever held in Britain,
was preceded by a parade
of Jewish and Zionist
youth groups from Albert
Hall in West London
where Dayan had released
a flock of pigeons as a
symbol of Israel's quest of
peace.

Dayan told the assem-
blage that their display of
solidarity was gratifying.
But, he added, "You are
here not in solidarity with
Israel but in solidarity with
yourselves as members of
the Jewish people and their
2,000 years-old prayers for
the return to Israel and the
creation of their own Jewish
State."
He said that above all,
Jewish solidarity meant set-
'fling in Israel, learning the
Hebrew language and serv-
ing in Israel's armed forces.

PARIS, (JTA) — More
than 50,000 Jews and others
from all over France at-
tended a marathon "Twelve
Hours For Israel" fair and
rally Sunday at the central
fair grounds. The event, or-
ganized by the French
United Jewish Appeal and
the French Jewish Central
Welfare Fund (FSJU), was
described as the largest
demonstration of solidarity
with Israel ever held in this
country at a time when Is-
rael was not at war.

Semitism in the USSR and
the intensification of har-
assment of Jews who have
applied for exit visas. He
said taxes have been im-
posed on Jews receiving gift
packages from abroad and
on those getting financial
aid. Many of the Jews who
have applied for exit visas
are now jobless because
they were immediately fired
from their posts, he said.
Meanwhile, after a sepa-
ration of 31/2 years, Edward
Gorin has been reunited
with his wife and two
daughters. The family was
brought to the United
States under the auspices of
HIAS, the worldwide Jew
ish migration agency.
Gorin, a world renowned
musician, is first violinist
with the Baltimore Sym-
phony.

Russian immigration to
the U.S. is about to be
stepped up as more than
2,000 Russian Jews in
transit outside Rome re-
ceive their visas for entry
to the U.S., according to
New York Association for
New Americans.

At least 350 Russian im-
migrants per month are ex-
pected in New York alone
over the next few months.
This is more than double the

average monthly migration
rate of Russians to this city
in the past. About one half
the Russian immigrants
coming to the U.S. settle in
New York.
The increased flow is the
result of the processing out
of a human bottleneck that
developed recently in Ostia,
a Roman suburb used as a
transit station for Russians
wanting to settle in coun-
tries other than Israel. The
bottleneck was mainly due
to a sudden rise in the num-
ber of Russians deciding to
settle in the U.S. and other
western countries rathe
than Israel.
