French Jews Plan to Act
Independently in Election

PARIS (JTA) — The
representative Council of
French Jewish Organiza-
tions (CRIF) announced
that it will take no active
political role in the forth-
coming French elections.
CRIF released a docu-
ment defining the role of
the Jewish community
within the "political
commonwealth" which
stresses the right of indi-
vidual Jews to fight their
political battles, but
stresses th'at "-no one has
the right to claim the
backing of the organized
Jewish community."
This document was re-
leased six weeks before
the forthcoming munici-
pal elections and several
months before the par-
liamentary ones.
The CRIF document re-
calls the community's at-
tachment to Isiael and
warns that "any threat to
the existence of Israel will



be regarded by the French
Jewish community as an
attack on its integrity, its
collective 'spirit, its faith,
hope and dignity."
The document also calls
on "the present govern-
ment and all future gov-
ernments to - remain
faithful to France's moral
vocation which should,
not be sacrificed for the
sake of immediate mate-
rial advantages and- in-
terests."
