CHICAGO (JTA) —
Uganda's President Idi
Amin has diverted world
attention from the mur-
der of thousands of Black
Christians by creating
artificial crises — a tech-
nique similar to that
being used by Arab states
to cloud the real issues in
the Middle East, accord-
ing. to Chaim Herzog, Is-
rael's Ambassador to the
United Nations.
In a luncheon address
before the Jewish United
Fund of Metropolitan
Chicago, Herzog also said
that the degree, of Ameri-
can Jewry's support for
humantarian programs
in Israel is considered an
important indicator of Is-
rael's strength by gov-
ernments both friepdly
•and unfriendly to Israel.

munity responded en-
thusiastically to Herzog's
call to let the "echoes of
our voices and our con-
cern resound so that gen-
erations to come will re-
member us with pride."
Special Gifts chairman
Edgar L. Cadden reported
substantial giving incre-
ments that brought the
1977 Jewish United Fund-
Israel Emergency Fund
campaign total to $11.5
million.
Herzog was introduced
by Jewish United Fund
general chairman
William Levine who told
the gathering that be-
cause of inflation, con-
tributions would have to
be increased 30 percent in
order to maintain the
level of local and overseas
services provided by JUF
locally, nationally and
overseas in 1976.
In his' address, Herzog
charged that Amin used
American citizens to
draw attention from the
"slaughter of tens of
thousands of Africans."
He pointed out that Amin
used the same technique

Constraint of Amin

NEW YORK — A call
upon the African nations
to "constrain and isolate"
Idi Amin, president of
Uganda, was made by
Rabbi Joseph P. Sterns-
tein, president of the
120,000-member Zionist
Organization of America.
In a letter addressed to
the Organization of Afri-
can Unity, the ZOA presi-
dent .noted that Amin's
antics reflect on all black
nations. "It weakens the
liberation movement of
the African people and
contributes to the insta- -
bility of the area."
He added, "As Zionists,
we are concerned that Idi
Amin has become the
spokesman for the Arab
nations and of the Soviet
Union, spreading hate
against Israel and the'
Jewish people. The si-
lence of the African na-
tions on Idi Amin gives
aid and comfort to the
enemies of Israel — the
Arab states which have
no concept of human
rights and liberty."

Nuclear Plant
Building Delayed

JERUSALEM (JTA)
The Knesset's Interior
Committee has recom-
mended that the govern-
ment postpone plans to
construct a nuclear
poWer plant at Nitzanim
on the Mediterranean
coast south of Ashdod.
The decision followed
an intensive campaign
waged against the pro-
ject by residents of the
area and environmen-
talists.
The National Power Co.
which had hoped to start
preparatory work
shortly, will have to await
the resUltS of further
studies.

A liar is not believed even
when he speaks the truth.
—The Talmud

authorized the murder of
73-year-old Mrs. Dora
Block, a hostage at En-
tebbe who reportedly had
been in a Ugandan hospi-
tal at the time of the Is-
raeli rescue. In that in-
stal-ice Amin created the
illusion of an impending
war with Kenya, Herzog
said.
In the Middle East, the
Arabs have attempted to
parallel this technique by
posing Arab-Israel strife
as the barrier to peace,
whereas the real problem
is "the inherent immatur-
ity and instability of Arab
governments," Herzog
said . - As evidence, he
pointed to recent inter-
Arab wars in Lebanon,
Yemen, Iraq, Sudan and
Jordan.
Herzog cited other hos-
tilities, such as those be-
tween Egypt and Libya,
between the PLO and var-
ious Arab states, and in a
post-luncheon press con-
ference he enumerated a
total of 70 revolutions in
Arab lands (25 of them
successful) since Jsrael
was established in 1948. -
This instability makes
it difficult for 'Israel to
