Author of Brutality Charges in Detroit Ann Arbor Talks

,

Lea Tsemel, one of two
Communist lawyers who
have accused Israel of tor-
turing Palestinian terror-
ists, will speak at Wayne
State University, the Uni-
versity of Michigan and at
Detroit's Central Methodist
Church this weekend.
Mrs. Tsemel and Mrs.
Felicia Langer were the
source of charges of bruta-

lity against Israel which
were printed in the London
Sunday Times this year.
The articles were chal-
lenged by Israel, and Brit-
ish author David Pryce-
Jones pointed out dis-
crepancies in the charges
and similarities between the
cases cited with those of
similar charges printed in
the Times eight years ago.
The two women attorneys
were the sources for the
earlier charges as well.

After the latest series of
articles, in June, the Israel

Embassy in London gave a
lengthy reply (The Jewish
News, July 8, 1977, Page 1)
stating that Arab prisoners
often claimed brutality
after talking to Israeli
authorities because they
were afraid of retaliation
from other prisoners.

The embassy said that
Mrs. Langer and Mrs. Tse-
inel "make a practice of
claiming that every client of
theirs who makes a state-
• ment to the police does so
under pressure." However,

whenever the police open
inquiries into the allegations
and request people to pro-
vide statements or to sub-
mit evidence "the two law-
yers simply fail to reply."
Mrs. Tsemel's campus
talks are being sponsored
by the Arab student organi-
zations at WSU and U-M.
The title of her Central
Methodist Church talk, at
7:30 p.m. Saturday, is
"Political Repression in
Israel: An Israeli Jew
Speaks Out for Human
Rights."

Rain in Israel Creates Problems

TEL AVIV, (JTA)—A
total of 11 persons have
been killed and about 60
injured this week in road•

accidents attributed to the
heavy rainfall• that has blan-
keted large areas of the
country.
Police reported nearly 300
accidetns on highways
where flooding made many
sections hazardous. The
heavy downpour knocked
out traffic lights causing
bottlenecks and long lines of
stalled vehicles for miles on
roads leading in and-out of
cities.
The rainy season began
early. Rain spread over the
Gaza Strip and Ashkelon
regions, moving "north to Tel
Aviv, the Sharon plain and
western Galilee. Work was
suspended at Haifa port.
Thousands of workers were
late getting–to their jobs

and school children were an
hour or more late for
classes.
The Gush Emunim set-
tlers in makeshift camps
were hard hit as cold rains
drenched the West Bank.

"Take time to deliberate:
but when the time for ac-
tion arrives, stop thinking
and go in."
