Skokie Nazis: 'Up Against the Wall, Scum'

Outraged by the latest Nazi manifestations, in De-
troit, in Skokie, other communities, a young Michigan
State student expressed his resentment in an article in
the Michigan State News, East Lansing. Detroiter
Harry Kirsbaum, whose article appeared under the
title, "Swastikas in Skokie: 'Up Against the Wall,
Scum' ... Revenge Vowed," identified himself as a
grandson of victims of Nazism who were murdered
with other members of the family, his father bearing
the Auschwitz tattoo on his arm and his mother re-
taining the scars from a Nazi-whip in Dachau. Since
this article was written, a court ruling has delayed the
Nazi march. In his expression of outrage, Kirsbaum
wrote:

American Evangelists Report
Settlements Bother Sadat

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
President Sadat of Egypt is
concerned over Israeli set-
tlements in Sinai, he told a
group of evangelist priests
with whom he met a few
days ago, and who met with
Premier Menahem Begin in
Jerusalem Tuesday.
Sadat warned Israel's
security in the Sinai could
not be based on these set-
tlements, which he said
were erected on "his soil"
and violated "his sover-
eignty."
The 10-member fact-
finding and good will
mission of these top level
American evangelist
leaders arrived in
Jerusalem Monday via
Allenby Bridge over the
Jordan River after a visit
to Amman and to Cairo.
The delegation, headed
by Rev. Billy Zeoli and
Pastor Jerry Falwell, met
Saturday with Sadat and
Sunday with Crown Pr-
ince Hassan and leading
members of the Jorda-
nian government.
Delegates handed Begin a
special verbal message from
Sadat.
Following the meeting
with Begin, Falwell told
newsmen Sadat had told
them Israeli 'settlements in
the Sinai would not be ac-
ceptable "for it was a viola-
tion of his land and his sov-
ereignty." -
"Secondly, he said there
must be a solution to the
Palestinian problem before
there can be a lasting
peace."
However, the delega-
tion members noted,
Sadat had been careful

not to make any demands
that could be construed
as hardline or prescript-
ive, "something that Is-
rael could not live with."
The delegation conveyed
to Begin another wish ex-
pressed by Sadat — to build
"a church, a synagogue and
a mosque" on top of Mt.
Sinai.
In response, Begin as-
sured his guests that "ev-
erything is negotiable. Let's
keep talking, let's keep the
doors open."

Atherton Visits
Egypt and Israel

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Assistant Secretary of State
Alfred L. Atherton left for
the Middle East on Wed-
nesday. He visited Egypt for
several days and then Is-
rael. Department spokes-
man Tom Reston said, "we
are presently in consulta-
tion with the parties to de-
termine how we can best
move the peace process for-
ward." But Atherton "will
not be carrying any specific
new proposals with him on
his journey," Reston said.
Atherton's return to the
Middle East where had been
on special assignment last
month as President Carter's
ambassador-at-large, is
viewed as a renewal of
American efforts to break
the four-month Israeli-
Egyptian negotiating im-
passe. He was asked to
make the trip by Secretary
of State Cyrus Vance who
was in Cairo briefly Tues-
day to meet with Egyptian
Foreign Minister Moham-
med Kaamel.
