Jews Protest Washington Post
Publicity Given to Hanafis

WASHINGTON (JTA )—
The Jewish Community
Council of Greater Washing-
ton expressed its "shock"
to the Washington Post last
Friday after that news-
paper had published an ar-
ticle April 14 sympathetic
to the Hanafi Moslems
under two eight-column ban-
ner lines that read "The Ha-
nafis See Themselves as Op-
pressed and Isolated" and
"Hanafi Muslim Blames 'Zi-
onist' Jews for Group's
Plight."
Criticizing the Post's edi-
torial judgement, the Coun-
cil said it is "ironic" that
the "Hanafi anti-Jewish ca-
nard and distortions of his-
tory and fact reminiscent of
Nazi statements" appeared
on the day Jews observe
"Heroes and Martyrs Day"
in memory of the millions
of victims of the Nazi
holocaust.
The Post carried the
Council's protest of approx-
imately 160 words on page
two of its third news sec-
tion Friday under a one-col-
umn head, "Jews Score
Post Story on Hanafi."
The Post's story of ap-
proximately 2,000 words by
a staff writer, Joseph D.
Whitaker, was almost total-
ly devoted to his interview
with Reginald A. Hawkins
Jr. a brother-in-law of Ha-
nafi Moslem leader Khalifa
Hamaas Abdul Khaalis
who, with a dozen gunmen
on March 9, took over three
Washington buildings, in-
cluding the Bnai Brith head-
quarters, and held 134 hos-
tages for 39 hours'

The Whitaker story that
featured the Post's . third
section, reported Hawkin's
view that "the quest of Zion-
ist Jews throughout history
has been to destroy the Is-
lamic faith and enslave its
believers." Hawkins was
quoted as saying, "The Zion-
ists teach that anyone who
is not Jewish is a beast. In
fact if was the Zionists that
were the cause of us being
brought into this country."
The Post's account did
not attempt to challenge or
contradict or refute Hawk-
ins' statements which Whita-
ker reported. Whitaker also
wrote that Hawkins left
Christianity eight years ago
to embrace the Moslem
faith and took the name of
Abdul Salim.
Leaders of the Jewish
Community Council, which
represents 180 organizations
and agencies in the Wash-
ington area, sought a meet-
ing with the Post's manage.-
ment. Benjamin Bradlee,
its executive editor, met
with Ernest Shalowitz, the
Council's vice-president,
and Daniel Mann, the execu-
tive director. They left
their statement with
Bradlee which the Post pub-
lished.

Holocaust History
Drive Began in U.K.

LONDON (JTA)—Lead-
ers of Anglo-Jewry are
about to begin a long-term
campaign to spread knowl-
edge of the Nazi attempt to
wipe out the Jewish people.
The campaign, sponsored
by the Board of Deputies of
British Jews, is intended to
counteract ignorance about
the Holocaust and the at-
tempts of present-day anti-
Semites to minimize it or
claim that it never hap-
pened.
A two-tier working party
has been set up to supple-
ment the educational work
carried out in Israel by Yad
Vashem, the Holocaust Me-
morial Foundation in Je-
rusalem. One committee,
headed by Prof. Chimen
Abramsky, head of the
Hebrew and Jewish Studies
Department at University
College, London, will work
in the universities. The
other, headed by Henry
Lewis, an executive of
Marks and Spencer, will op-
erate within the Jewish
community.
