Gush Settle in Army Camp
in Newest Settlement Drive

TEL AVIV (JTA)—About
30 Gush Emunim settlers
established themselves at
the Shomron army camp on
the Nablus-Tulkarem high-
way on the West Bank this
week.
They are the vanguard of
a group that will remain at
the camp indefinitely as
civilian employes of the
army.

The army camp settle-
nt was authorized by the
binet after proposals that
the Gush men be enlisted in
the army were dropped. As
employes of the military,
their presence in occupied
territory is presumably
sanctioned by international
law.

Meanwhile, the govern-
. ment attempted to dis-
sociate itself from the storm
of criticism raised by the
announcement last week
that Gush settlers would be
mobilized into the army
reserve as the legal pretext

for occupying six unused
army camps on the West
Bank.
That idea was a com-
promise reached between
Premier Menahem Begin
and the Gush leaders after
the government prevented
several settler groups from
establishing new settle-
ments in the Samaria and
Judea regions after the Suk-
kot holiday.
Minister of Agriculture
Ariel Sharon, a strong sup-
porter of West Bank settle-
ments, said the government
never promised to enlist the
Gush in the reserve. The
defense ministry said offi-
cially that there would be no
call-up of the settlers-
because such a move was
not permitted by law. But
the Gush leaders insisted
that the suggestion had been
made by Begin and said
they accepted it reluctantly
as the only way to -.remain
on the West Bank with -gov-
ernment approval.

New York Missionary Group
Aims at Jews, Warning issued

NEW YORK (JTA)—Rep-
resentatives of the "Chris-
tian Brothers Carpet Clean-
ing Service" are blanketing
Jewish communities in the
metropolitan area soliciting
business.
This company is, in fact,
a part of the "Church of
Bible Understanding"
(COBU) and operates out of
the missionary-cult group's
headquarters. according to
the Jewish Community
Relations Council's Task
Force on Missionary Activ-
ity.(JCRC).
The COBU is considered
one of the more extreme
groups and has been the
subject of a number of
investigations and exposes.
the JCRC said.
Malcohn Hoenlein, JCRC
executive director, warned
that the cleaning service
offers COBU members

opportunities to gain entry
into people's homes.
While performing their
service. they are reported
to engage in religious dis-
cussions especially when
young people are present.
Moreover. the income from
the business is said to fund
COBU's other con-
versionary activities. he
said.
In November. 1976.
COBU, formerly known as
"Forever Family," was
ordered by the New York
City Health. Fire and Build-
ings Departments to vacate
lofts in downtown New York
where 159 members were
living in "unsafe, unsani-
tary and illegal" conditions.
The group is headed by
Stewart Traill and a consid-
erable number of its mem-
bers are from Jewish fami-
lies. Hoenlein said.
