N.Y. Jews Ask Equal Time to Rebut Carmichael Bias

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Three major national Jew-
ish organizations have
sharply condemned anti-
Zionist remarks made by
black activist Stokely Car-
michael during an interview
on the WABC-TV "Like It
Is" program Sunday. Two
of them have asked for

equal time to rebut Carmi-
chael's statements.
Naomi Levine, executive
director of the American
Jewish Congress, who re-
quested the right to appear
on "Like It Is" "to respond
to Carmichael's vicious lies,"
declared that it was "deeply
regrettable" that WABC-

TV "has seen fit to have as
its guest on June 20 Stokely
Carmichael, an incendiary
revolutionary with anti-
Semitic and anti-American
views."

Haskell L. Lazere, exec-
utive director of the New
York chapter of the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee,

Vatican Backs Habitat Statement

TORONTO (JTA) — A
member of the Vatican dele-
gation to the recent
"Habitat" conference in
Vancouver said last Thurs-
day that the Holy See sup-
ported "Habitat's" Declara-
tion of Principals adopted at
the closing session last week
even though it was rejected
15 Western countries,
eluding the United States,
ecause of its anti-Israel
political implications.
The Declaration did not
refer to Israel or the Middle
East conflict directly. But it
contained a reference to "all

forms of racial discrimina-
tion" mentioned in resolu-
tions adopted by the United
Nations General Assembly.
This obviously included the
Assembly's resolution of
last November defining
Zionism as a form of rac-
ism.

But Molly Boucher, vice-
president of the Board of
Canadian Catholic Organi-
zations for Development

and Peace, who was a mem-
ber of the Vatican delega-
tion at the "Habitat" confer-
ence, told newsmen, "We
did not agree with the inter-
pretation that some place on
that paragraph. It could be
construed as being anti-
Zionist or anti-Jewish but
was not specifically so."
Therefore, she said, the
Holy See did not consider it
was anti-Jewish by support-
ing the Declaration.

Queen, vice president and
general manager of
WABC-TV requesting that
"equal time should 'be

spokesmen."

announces Saturday

According to transcripts
of the interview, Carmi-
chael, who chairman of
the All African People's
Revolutionary Party, said
"It is totally improper that
the (U.S.) government
should continue to send our
tax dollars to Israel" and
that "Zionists remain the
primary supporters of the
repressive South African
regime and unjustly occupy
land belonging to Egypt."

U.S. Jews Favor Criticism
of Israel, But Not in Public

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Representative members of
the American Jewish com-
munity overwhelmingly
support "free expression of
the widest variety of views
and opinions on Israel's poli-
cies." At the same time,
they believe such expres-
sions should be confined to
the Jewish community lest
they "give aid and comfort"
to Israel's enemies.
That consensus was re-
ported by Rabbi Alexander
M. Schindler, chairman of
the Conference of Presi-
dents of Major American
Jewish Organizations.
Rabbi Schindler disclosed
at a press conference at
Jewish Agency headquart-
ers in New York that the
Presidents Conference held
a meeting with more than
100 representatives of Jew-
ish groups, including
"hawks" and "doves," in an
effort to ascertain the atti-

tude within the American
Jewish community with re-
spect to Israel's policies.

According to Rabbi
Schindler, "The over-
whelming opinion of the
more than 100.representa-
fives who attended was to
support free expression of
the widest variety of views
and opinions on Israel's
policies — provided that
such views were voiced
within the Jewish commu-
nity."

Rabbi Schindler said,
however, that "the near
unanimous" opinion at the
meeting was that when Jew-
ish dissent is made public in
the daily press or in the
halls of government, the re-
sult is "to give aid and com-
fort to the enemy and to
weaken that Jewish unity
which is essential for the se-
curity of Israel and, indeed,
of the Jewish community in
America."

Assad Sees Show
Performed by Jews

PARIS (JTA) — Syrian
President Hafez Assad at-
tended a special ballet per-
formance last week in his
honor at the Elysee Palace.
If he knew what he and his
group saw, it must have
been a strange experience.
The show was the ballet
"Gisele," based on a ballad
by a German Jew, Heinrich
Heine; with music by a
French Jew, Adolphe Adam;
the choreography by Jean
Sinelli, an Italian Jew, and
danced in the main role by
Paris Opera star dancer
Dominique Khalfouni, an
Algerian born Jew.
