Among those assisting in
the case is Joseph Pome-
rant of Toronto, a leading
Canadian lawyer. Pome-
rant, who has been refused
a visa to enter the Soviet
Union, was in Washington
to meet Mrs. Sharansky. A
curious circumstance in the
current Moscow pro-
ceedings is that Sharansky,
his two alleged accomplices
in the American Embassy,
and his chief accuser are
all Jewish. So is Toth's
Several weekend rallies

were held as part of Nation-
al Solidarity Month for So-
viet Jews, and Sharansky
was the major focus.
Rep. Robert F. Drinan
(D-Mass.) said in Boston
that Sharansky's arrest was
"an outrageious abuse of hu-
man rights" for which the
Soviets must answer in the
court of world opinion.
Sen. William Brock (R-
Tenn. ), who is the GOP
chairman, told 3,000 people
in Washington, "Our pres-
ence here today is a demon-
stration to Soviet Jews that
they are not alone in their
struggle for dignity and
freedom. As I have said in
the past and repeat again,
we can deal successfully

am not a member of the
President's party, I can as-
sure him here tonight that
the cause of human rights
is not a Democratic or Re-
publican cause, it is an
American cause."
Another speaker, Sen.
Birch Bayh (D-Ind.), said
that the Soviet Union has it-
self called attention to its
"inability and unwilling-
ness' to "accommodate the
desire of its own citizens
for freedom."
Sharing the platform with
Eugene Gold, re-elected
NCSJ chairman, was Na-
talya Sharansky.
Similar statements were
made Tuesday at the NCSJ
meetings in Washington by
Sens. Henry Jackson (D-
Wash. ), Charles Mathias
(R-Md.) and Charles Percy
(R-Ill. ). •
Guerrilla theater, free-
dom songs, Yiddish poems,
art sketches and speeches
were part of the "Free Ana-
tol y Sharansky" demonstra-
tion Friday in New York in
front of Aeroflot, Soviet air-
line office and outside the
New York Public Library
on Fifth Ave.
Earlier in the week, 700
students picketed New
York's Metropolitan Mu-
seum to demand that its di-
rector, Thomas Hoving, in-
tercede with Soviet officials
on behalf of Sharansky. The
museum is featuring an his-
toric exhibit of Russian art
as part of a cultural ex-
change program.

Mnyukh has already left

Azbel is one of the most
prominent Moscow "refuse-

a visa, unsuccessfully,' for
the past six years. He Pre-
sided over an unofficial
weekly seminar of Jewish
scientists who were dis-
missed from their jobs af-
ter applying for visas.

Yugoslays Arrest
Jewish Women

slavia on Wednesday ex-
pelled an international
group of 15 Jewish women
who had planned to demon-
strate at the opening in Bel-
grade of the prepatory ses-
sion of the 35-nation Hel-
sinki Review Conference.
Three of those seized by
Yogoslav police are from
Britian—Doreen Gainsford
and Linda Isaccs of London
and Pat Allin of South-
ampton. Another—Estelle
Stern Eilers—is from Dues-
seldorf, West Germany.
They had been joined in
Belgrade by women from
11 other Western countries
who are all members of the
Women's Campaign for So-
viet Jewry, also- known as
the 35 Group.
The "35 Group" said it
had no information about
the other women who had
arrived in Belgrade from
Belguim, France, Canada,
Denmark, Holland, Italy,
Norway, Sweden, Switzer-
land and the U.S. Mrs. Gain-
sford, chairman of the "35
Group," and her associates
were seized by Yogoslav po-
lice as they were preparing
to demonstrate. But they
managed to distribute some
leaflets accusing the Soviet
Union of failing to observe
the Helsinki Agreement on
Human Rights.
Before leaving Britain,
Mrs. Gainsford had told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that she recognized that she
risked being arrested. She
was arrested in Helsinki
two years ago.

Carey Blasts Begin's Critics

York Governor Hugh L.
Carey castigated early crit-
ics of Israeli Premier-desig-
nate Menahem Begin,
charging that their "short-
sightedness" in labeling the
Likud leader an extremist
"enhances arguments for
imposed solutions to the
Middle East crisis."
In an address to an Israel
Bond dinner at the Essex
House here, Carey asserted
"we certainly should not
criticize Begin now," stat-
ing "there is no indication
that the new government of
Israel will swerve from the
pursuit of a negotiated set-
tlement" in the Middle
He called for "intelligent
and informed approaches to
the elected leadership of Is-
rael" and said that "we
must encourage in both pri-
vate and officialcircles in
this country a clear-headed

understanding and patience
as Menahem Begin and the
Likud Party build the parlia-
mentary and democratic
coalition necessary to gov-
ern the country."
The governor was guest
speaker at a testimonial din-
ner for former New York
Stae Assembly Majority
Leader Albert H. Blumen-
thal that was sponsored by
the Manhattan Lawyers Di-
vision of State of Israel
Bonds. Attorney • Louis
Nizer, chairman of the din-
ner, announced that it pro-
duced more than $560,000 in
Israel Bond purchases.
Carey said it was "iron-
ic" that Mr. Begin, "whose
election is evidence of the
workings of democracy
under pressure, should be
criticized as an extremist,
while the non-democratic
leadership of some of the
forces most threatening to
Israel is described as mod-
