Status Quo Sought on Soviet Jewish Dropouts

NEW YORK (JTA) — A
statement intended to
guide the National
Jewish Community Rela-
tions Advisory Council in
responding to the issue of
Soviet Jewish immigra-
tion and noshrim (drop-
outs) was read to dele-
gates at a closed 'session
of the NJCRAC plenary
meeting in Miami Beach
two weeks ago.
The statement noted
that the problem "has
been under careful
examination by an ad
hoc Inter-Organizational
Committee - which "care-
fully examined the prob-
lems and alternative op-
tions - and concluded that
"one thing is clear: there
is agreement by leaders
in Israel and the United
States that Jews desiring
to leave the Soviet Union
genuinely should have
freedom of choice as to
where they wish to go. -

"The consensus, which
was virtually unanimous
among NJCRAC national
agencies, was that any de-
cision to modify existing
procedures should be
postponed.

"The feeling was that
such action would be
premature in light of an-
ticipated discussions be-
tween the United States
government and the
Soviet Union and our
hope that the plight or
Soviet Jews will figure
prominently in those
negotiations.
"The group ! recom-
mended to the NJCRAC
chairman and executive
vice chairman, as mem-
bers of these committees,
that they encourage the
Inter-Organizational
Committee and its Com-
mittee of Ten to defer ac-
tion on any of the propos-
als now before them.
"It was recognized that
the effect of this position

is to maintain the status
quo at the present time

Meanwhile, Uzi Narkis,
director general of the
Jewish Agency's immig-
ration department, last
week withdrew an earlier
statement in which he
said the Committee of
Ten had not yet reached a
conclusion because of
"sharp disagreement -

The tone of the-joint
communique issued by
the two leaders and the
matters covered in their
3 1/2 hour meeting were
• cause for optimism even
before the premier
briefed the Cabinet at its
weekly session.

They spoke of the need
for a political solution of
the Middle East conflict
through negotiations, of
the mutual interests of
Israel and the African
states and of the need to
oppose Communist influ-
ence in Africa.

Despite the/fact that
most Black African na-
tions broke with Israel
after the Yom Kippur War
and have generally voted
with the Arab bloc at the
United Nations and other
world forums, Israeli dip-
lomats have kept contact
with key African leaders,
sometimes secretly.

A significant facto't in
Rabin's meeting with
Houphouet-Boigny is
that the latter has met
recently with representa-
- tives of the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization, a
matter which, according
to reports, was frankly
discussed between them.
It was learned that the
Geneva meeting was ar-
ranged at Houphouet-
Boigny's initiative and- at
his request was kept sec-
ret until it was over.

. According to reports of
their talks, the Ivory
Coast President told
Rabin "It hurts me that
