In a letter to Argentina's
Ambassador to the United
States, Jorge A. Aja Espil,
the three human rights
leaders noted your
government's pledge to
President Carter that the
human rights situation in
Argentina would show
marked improvement by
Christmas."
The statement, further
observing that the spirit of
Hanuka and Christmas was
a time of freedom and good
will to all, was issued by
Thomas E. Quigley, adviser
for Latin America,
international justice and
peace, U.S. Catholic
Conference; Rev. William
L. Wipfler, human rights
director, National Council
of Churches; and Rabbi
Morton M. Rosenthal,,
director of the Latin
American affairs
department,
Anti-Defamation ,League of
Bnai Brith. .
Human rights groups in
New York have expressed
growing concern over the
unexplained disappearance
of thousands of Argentine
citizens.
Reports tell of men
dressed in civilian clothes,
reputed to be security
agents, taking people out of
their homes in the middle
of the night. Some are
never seen again,
according to these reports,
others are detained,
frequently for long periods
of time, without
explanation.
The joint communication
asked the Argentine
government "to make

prisoners held on political
charges so that the anguish
of uncertainty may . be
lifted from thousands of
Argentine homes."
While the total number of
such incarcerations is
unclear at present, it is
known that during the visit
by Secretary of State Cyrus
Vance to Argentina in
November, a computerized
list containing some 7.500
names was delivered to the
Foreign Ministry.
In a related development,
the American Jewish
Committee has urged
Argentine President Jorge
R. Videla to release Jacob°
Timerman from- prison and
to ifermit him and his
family to leave the country.
Timerman, editor of the
liberal, pro-Zionist
Argentine newspaper, La
Opinion, and one of the
most prominent men in his
country, was dragged from
his home before dawn last
April 15 by armed men in
civilian clothes, who turned
out to be army officers. He
has been held in jail for the
past eight months, and
deprived of his civil rights

and property, although no
formal charges have been
made against him.
In Buenos Aires, the
Arabic daily As Salam
wrote that the Argentine
Arab community, which it
claimed, numbers over two
million, has contributed
much to build Argentina
and should not import
overseas differences. Peace
and work should replace
hate and conflicts, the
paper said.
In an apparent reference
to the Mideast peace
momentum launched by the
"impossible
between Egypt and Isra
As Salam said the Arabs
must recognize that Israel
exists, that 'Jews have their
country and nobody can
deny their right to it. But
Jews must equally admit
that they—appropriated part
of other peoples' country
and must return it, As
Salam wrote. Palestinians
also exist and have their
rights.
Accepting both realities
will ease the way to peace
and hatred will diminish,
the paper said.

Republican Group Advocates
West Bank Free Trade Zone

• WASHINGTON
(JTA).—The Ripon Society,
a national Republican
Party research and policy
organization, in a policy
paper issued here,
recommended that the
parties involved in seeking
peace in the Middle East
consider establishment of
all or part of the West
Bank and Gaza Strip as a
free trade zone.
The paper declared that
the status of the West Bank
remains the most difficult
problem to be faced in
reaching a settlement.
However, it suggested
that by setting,the problem
in the proper economic
context, the intensity of the
political dispute might be
lessened.
Questions of sovereignty
and authority could be
negotiated in an
atmosphere where the'
focus would not be on "the
all or nothing question or
whether the West Bank
should immediately be set
up as a sovereign nation,"
the society declared.

The paper, issued last
Friday, cited the existence
of 30 jurisdictions having
free ports or free trade
zones, including Aqaba in
Jordan; and Suez Canal
cities in Egypt; Bierut, and
Bahrain in the Middle East.

Such areas generally
provide for removal of
taxes, tariffs and other
controls that are barriers
to free trade. They allow
industries which are
located there to operate
with minimal taxes and
restrictions on investment.
The society suggested
that such a zone on the
West Bank could become a
trade and investment

gateway to surrounding
countries and perhaps to
the entire Middle East,
replacing war-torn Beirut,
and provide employment to
the present Palestinian
residents of the West Bank,
and thus assure stability to
the area as a whole.
"The free-market
orientation of such a zone
would ensure the
permanent exclusion of the
Soviet Union from the area,
and pre-empt the possibility
of a radical socialist
-.Palestinian state of the
model of Cuba," the society
said.
The paper also declared
that the establishment of a
free trade zone would
provide an opportunity for
self-determination for the
Palestinians while
protecting the security
interests of surrounding -
states.
Elected West Bank
representatives — might
exercise merely local
government functionis or
agreed-upon kinds of
international
representation," the paper
stated. "However, because
of minimal taxing
authority, the authority
would be unable to suppo
a military buildup
threatening to Israel or
Jordan."

A policy of the authority
to protect existing residents
of the West Bank from the
loss of their land •I-Tough
sale as well as force would
allow the Palestinians to
benefit more from the
economic expansion, the
society asserted, adding
that such a
"non-alienation" policy
would create—in a literal -
sense—a Palestinian
homeland.
