NEW YORK (JTA) —
The American Zionist
Federation and the Un-
ited Zionists Revisionists
of America are embroiled
in a bitter dispute over
the decision last July by
the Zionist General
Council not to hold elec-
tions for delegates to the
29th World Zionist Con-
gress opening in
Jerusalem next January.
The AZF adopted a
strong resolution of cen-
sure against the UZRA
for taking its case to the
New York civil courts be-
fore exhausting internal
Zionist legal machinery.
The UZRA, in a state-
ment issued Tuesday,
blasted the AZF for al-
legedly trying to deny
750,000 American
Zionists their democratic
rights.
The AZF's resolution,
adopted by the umbrella
organization of the
American Zionist move-
ment at its convention at
Grossing.ers last week by
a iibte of 122-13 "deplored,
condemned and cen-
sured" the UZRA for
their breach of Zionist
morality and organiza-
tional discipline that "in
bypassing the internal
procedures, the - UZRA
have delivered a pernici-
ous blow to the Zionist
movement and provided
aid and comfort to those
who are all too ready to
gloat over any weakening
of our movement."
It called on all con-
stituent organizations of
the AZF to "close ranks"
against the UZRA unless
the court proceedings,
commenced by its presi-
dent, Prof. Howard L.
Adelson are promptly
withdrawn.
Adelson responded in a
statement saying "We
have tried repeatedly to
negotiate our differences

with major parties of the
AZF. Our demands for
democracy and our at-
tempt to have a delega-
tion from the United
States at the World
Zionist Congress which
accurately reflects the
political views of Ameri-
can Jews, have met the
crudest attempts at sup-
pression."
Adelson contended that
the major Zionist groups
comprising the AZF had
no desire "to allow the
Zionist masses to be
heard and to maintain
the democratic Zionist
tradition . . . the result of
the AZF is simply further
confirmation of the at-
tempt to suppress dis-
sension."
Abraham Silverstein,
UZRA treasurer, said in a
separate statement that
"it is our firm intention to
see this matter through
to a successful conclu-
sion."
Last week the Zionist
Executive in Jerusalem
expressed displeasure
with the UZRA's resort to
a U.S. court in the dispute
and urged it to refrain
from trying to solve an in-
ternal controversy
through an external legal
system.
The Zionist Executive
took up the issue after re-
ceiving a cable from Mrs.
Faye Schenk, president of
the AZF, protesting the
UZRA's action.
Earlier, Mrs. Schenk
told nearly 500 delegates
attending the fourth AZF
biennial convention that
"from our Zionist
perspective, it would be
correct to state that the
two-year period since the
last AZF convention has

Young Israelis
Target-of Zionists

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The
forthcoming World
Zionist Congress will be
asked 'to approve a pro-
ject aimed at strengthen-
ing Zionist sentiments
among young Israelis as
well as among Jewish
youths from abroad.
The plan, drafted by
Aryeh Zimouki, chairman
of the Zionist Council in
Israel, calls among other
things for the establish-
ment of student com-
munes on all Israeli
campuses which would be
dedicated to Zionist ac-
tivities by both Israeli
and foreign students.
Another facet of the
program is to involve Is-
raeli high school students
and youth movement
members in Zionism.
Zimouki said that a
mini-Zionist Congress to
be attended by delegates
from Israel's secondary
schools would precede the
World Zionist Congress
due to open in Jerusalem
next January.
Zimouki also wants to
establish a settlement in
Galilee for Israeli and
foreign students to com-
bine farming with Zionist
education and to hold
Zionist seminars for
youth from abroad.

witnessed an intensifica-
tion of the American
Jew's identification with
Israel's cause and plight
and a new receptivity to
Zionism."
Due to the infamous
Zionism equals racism re-
solution adopted by the
United Nations General
Assembly of Nov. 10, 1975,
"which had as its end goal
the destruction of the
Jewish State and the
Jewish people, the Zionist
cause has gained greater
interest and support,"
she added.

adult children have set-

The Women's League
has built and maintains
girls homes in Israel and
has contributed a number .4
of projects, including a
scholarship endowment
fund and dormitories t oI
the Hebrew University in
Jerusalem.
Among the 500 dele-
gates representing vari- 4
ous Zionist groups and
local Federations at the
American Zionist Federa- w 4
tion Convention were the
following delegates from
the Detroit Zionist Feder-
ation:
Steve Goldin, president
of the Zionist-Revisionists
of America, Ben Harold,
president of Labor Zionist
Alliance, Elsie Harold of
Pioneer Women, Gordon
Silverman, director of
Labor Zionist Alliance,
Rabbi Gerald Shuster of
Temple Beth-El, Flint, and
Renee Wohl, executive di-
rector of the Detroit
Zionist Federation.

Also addressing the
convention, Ambassador
Simcha Dinitz, Israel's
envoy to the United States,
warned that the Soviet
Union must be excluded
from the diplomatic pro-
cess in the Middle East ex-
cept for "a ceremonial
function." Dinitz also said
Israel did not fear any
peace initiative.
But, he said, "a danger"
that must be avoided is
"the incorporation" of the
Soviet Union into the dip-
lomatic process in the
Middle East. "The Soviet-
Union must be relegated Mr. Cornfield
to a ceremonial function" Celebrates 75th
in any peace negotiations
and not the function "of
good offices or arbitra-
tion," he said.
The AZF convention
received messages of
greetings from President
Ford and Democratic
Presidential candidate
Jimmy Carter. Ford said
that "Under my Ad-
ministration, the United
States will remain firm in
its pledge to provide polit-
ical calm, economic. calm
