Five JDL'ers Demonstrate at Senator Ribicoff's Office

WASHINGTON (JTA)
— Five members of the
Jewish Defense League
staged a five-hour sit-in
at the office of Sen. Ab-
raham Ribicoff (D.-Conn.)
last week.
The JDL is protesting a
suggestion made by
Ribicoff while he was in
Israel recently that the
Carter Administration
appoint Secretary of

State Henry A. Kissinger
as a special peace envoy
to the Middle East.

The JDL also objected
to the request by Ribicoff
and the 12 other Senators
who accompanied him, to
visit Israel's nuclear in-
stallations at Dimona.
The request was rejected
by the Israeli govern-
ment.

IDL'ers Enter Guilty Pleas
in 11-Count Federal Indictment

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Five members of the
Jewish Defense League
have entered guilty
pleas to charges in an
11-count federal indict-
ment charging conspi-
racy stemming from
shootings and pipe-
bombings against targets
in the Bronx and Man-
hattan, according to a
transcript of their pleas
in the United States At-
torney's office made av-
ailable to the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency.
The five defendants are
Thomas MacIntosh, 36, of
Woodbury, N.J.; Steven
Ehrlich, 21, San Fran-
cisco; Russel Kelner, 35,
and Jeffrey Weingarten,
21, both df Brooklyn; and
Steven Rambam, 18, who
was a juvenile at the time
of his arrest by the FBI
and whose arrest was not
reported at the time.
MacIntosh, described
by the JDL as a convert,
reportedly had been pre-
pared to turn state's evi-
dence and be a witness for
the prosecution. How-
ever, there was no trial

because all five pleaded
guilty.
According to the trans-
cript, bail was fixed for
MacIntosh and the bail
was posted. All five are at
liberty on bail, pending
appearance for sentenc-
ing. Ehrlich will appear
for sentencing Nov. 29.
Kelner and Weingarten
will be sentenced Dec. 7.
Rambam and MacIntosh
will be sentenced Dec. 15.
The fact that limited
pleas were entered on the
11-count indictment indi-
cated that Judge Mac-
Mahon may dismiss the
other counts on which the
five JDL members were
arrested but this is.a mat-
ter for Judge MacMahon
to decide.
The
indictment
charged a conspiracy
which included charges of
shooting into the Soviet
Mission to the United Na-
tions and into the Soviet
residence in the Bronx;
and alleged pipe-bombing
attempt at the Iraqi Mis-
sion to the UN; and an al-
leged pipe-bombing of a
Gulf Oil service station.

that fact the paper's circu-
lation in recent years has
fallen from 700,000 to
517,000.
Murdoch's newspapers
in Australia, England
and the United States
have been said to appeal
to a mass market, em-
phasizing crime, sex and
other sensational news.
Mrs. Schiff, 73, will stay
on at the paper for five
years as a consultant. She
was the daughter of Mor-
timer L. and Adele Neus-
tadt Schiff and the
granddaughter of banker
Jacob H. Schiff, head of
Kuhn, Loeb and Co. The
Schiffs were among the
first Jews to be admitted
into the Social Register.
