ANTI-JEWISH SURPRISES: The Bicentennial, cele-
brated joyfully all over the country on July 4, was marred
with anti-Jewish "surprises" presented a few days earlier to
the American people by two men of influence — Father An-
drew Greely, a scholarly leader in the American Catholic
Church, and Gen. George S. Brown, chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff.
Gen Brown's "surprise" was in a way no surprise at all.
Some time ago he had made an anti-Jewish statement
which provoked strong criticism on the part of Jews as well
as non-Jews. He was then reprimanded by President Ford.
Despite this uproar, he nevertheless reiterated before a Sen-
ate committee that he still is of the opinion that American
Jews exert undue influence on the U. S. Congress.
It was the arrogance of his answer that came as a sur-
prise. It was thought that after Ford's criticism of his pre-
vious anti-Jewish public utterances he had changed his posi-
tion. He made it clear to the Senate committee that this is
not the case. Nevertheless the Senate approved his nomina-
tion by a vote of 57-34.
Fr. Greely's "surprise" came in the form of an article
by him in the New York Times in which he charged that
"there is a strong and powerful anti-Catholic feeling in the
Jewish community" in this country. This shocking and in-
citing allegation has provoked no little indignation not only
among Jews but also among Catholics.
JEWISH ANGER: The anger of Jewish leadership
over the anti-Jewish views expressed by F. Greely and Gen.
Brown was overshadowed by the Bicentennial celebration
and the news of the daring and courageous raid of Israeli
paratroops on the Uganda airport.
The article by Fr. Greely worries Jewish leaders. Their
organizations have for years been promoting Jewish-Catho-
lic amity. Some of them maintain interreligious depart-
ments for this purpose. The National Conference of Chris-
tians and Jews has been engaged since 1928 in developing a
spirit of understanding and cooperation between Catholics,
Protestants and Jews. Local Jewish community relations
councils in about 100 cities are working hand-in-hand with
local Catholic and Protestant clergymen. One anti-Jewish
statement from a respected Catholic spiritual leader like
Fr. Greely can undo much of the Catholic goodwill towards
Jews built up laboriously during decades.
Catholic-Jewish friendship reached a high point several
years ago when the Ecumenical Council at the Vatican
adopted its historic declaration absolving the Jewish people
from the centuries-old charge of crucifying Jesus. However,
cool winds are now blowing in the ranks of the Catholic
clergy in this country. Sympathy for Israel has conspi-
ciously diminished among Catholic church leaders since the
Dissatisfaction is developing among Catholic clergy-
men with the Jewish support of abortion legislation which
the Catholic church opposes; also with the fact that leading
Jewish organizations in this country are opposing state
funding for parochial schools when the Catholic school
system is now in dire need.
INTERRELIGIOUS ACTION: Aware of the develop-
ing weak spots in Catholic-Jewish relations, the American
Jewish Committee and other leading Jewish groups are con-
centrating more and more on their activities of cementing
stronger Christian-Jewish relations through Catholic and
Protestant churches and Jewish community organizations.
One of the recent projects which the AJCommittee has in-
troduced is ecumenical and inter-religious study tours to
Israel at moderate costs.
The tours combine meetings with Christian, Jewish
and Moslem leaders in interreligious dialogue with visits to
the archeological and religious sites marking the origins of
Christianity and Judaism.
The Christian clergymen participating in the tours are
overwhelmed by their freedom t6 see and speak to a wide
group of people of divergent backgrounds. They return to
the United States enriched with their new knowledge of Is-
rael and disseminate their impressions to their congrega-
Stimulated by the AJCommittee experience, the Israel
government is now planning conferences in Jerusalem of
Christians and Israelis to cement their common religious
heritage and explore new avenues of communication. The
first such conference will take place..‘at the end of Novem-
