JERUSALEM (JTA )—
Eleven of the 66 Vietnam-

leave soon to settle in Iran,
Uzi Narkiss ; the head of the
World Zionist Organization
immigration department, re-

Narkiss said the Vietnam-

ing Hebrew at the absorp-
tion center at Ofakim, near
. Beersheba.
He noted that the group
was divided into three
units, one Christian and two
different Bhuddist sects.
The religious differences
were apparently the cause
of the disputes which had
broken out within the
group, Narkiss observed.

Callaghan First British Premier
to Address Jews on Balfour Day

LONDON (JTA)—For the
first time, a British Prime,
Minister has agreed to ad-
dress the Board of Deputies
of British Jews. James Cal-
laghan will appear at a spe-
cial session of the -Board on
Oce. 23 to mark the 60th an-
niversary of the Balfour
Declaration in which Brit-
ain undertook to support
the Jewish claim to a na-
tional home in Palestine.
It is also believed to be
the first time that a serving
British Prime Minister has
agreed to appear on a pub-
lic platform to corn-
memorate an event which
still stirs anger in the Arab
world.

Former Labor Justice Hits
New Israeli E xtradition Law

JERUSALEM (JTA)—
The Knesset approved a
measure last week that
would forbid the extradition
of an Israeli citizen for
crimes committed abroad.
The legislation, which pro-
- vides for trial in Israel of
such persons, passed its
first reading and was re-
ferred to the. Law Com-
mittee. But it encountered
strong opposition from for-
mer Justice Minister
Hayim Zadok of the Labor
Alignment, who said the
proposed law would turn Is-
rael into an asylum for Jew-
ish criminals.
The amendment to the ex-
tradition law, introduced
for the government by
Yoram Aridor of Likud,
was originally proposed by
Premier Menahem Begin
when he was -leader of the
opposition in the last Knes-

set. It would have Israel
repudiate the extradition
treaties it now has with
many countries.
Aridor replied to Zadok's
objections by stressing that
Israel would try citizens ac-
cused of offenses by a for-
eign power. But Zadok ob-
served that "We can try the
man here but it would not
prevent him from coming
to Israel." He said the law
would encourage Jews with
criminal records to immi-
grate to Israel.

"A Jewish criminal will
always prefer to immigrate
to Israel, receive citizen-
ship by power of the Law of
Return and become im-
mune to extradition,"
Zadok said.

Zadok proposed that the
law draw a distinction be-
tween a suspect who was a
citizen of Israel before he
committed an offense
abroad and a non-citizen
who sought refuse from
legal prosecution in Israel.
Aridor insisted that the
state could not make any
distinction between the two
kinds of citizens.
The measure is expected
to be returned to the ple-
num for its second and
third readings shortly. Its
progress is followed with
great interest by Shmuel
Flatto-Sharon, a one-man
Knesset faction ., who faces
possible extradition to
France.
Flatto, a millionaire busi-
ness, fled to Israel in 1972
and became a citizen. He
was elected to the Knesset
on May 17 but France's ex-
tradition request, on
charges of tax evasion • and
fraud is still being process-
ed by ISraeli courts.
Although the law provides
immunity for an MK, there
are circumstances under
which a Knesset member
could be extradited and
Flatto apparently would
feel safer if the govern-
ment-sponsored amendment
is adopted. Since entering
the Knesset he has usually
added his single vote to
Likud's narrow coalition
majority.

dress the community in re-
sponse to a personal in-
vitation from Lord Fisher
of Camden, president of the
Board, who will preside at
the meeting.

Some observers in Britain
are speculating that Callag-
han may use the occasion
to seek Angelo-Jewry's un-
derstanding for this new Pa-
lestinian policy despite its
unpopularity in Israel. The
Board of Deputies has itself
- voiced its dimay at this pol-
icy.

Greville Janner, vice pres-
ident of the Board and a
Labor Party MP, said that
by accepting the invitation,
the Prime Minister would
be "paying .a compliment of
the highest order" to the
community and to the state
of Israel.

A
memoration of the Balfour
Declaration anniversary
will be staged by the Zion-

original historic document
was addressed. It will hold
a dinner to be addressed by

Callaghan's decision to at-
tend the Balfour Declara-
tion event , is also note-
worthy because-, at - past Bal- -
four anniversary celebra-
tions, in Britain and in
Israel, British governments
have usually preferred to
be represented by second-
