Arab Financing Bars Israel
from December Asian Games

Stollmans Give $1 Million
to Bar-Ilan Lookstein Center

NEW YORK (JTA) — A Joseph H. Lookstein Institute
for Diaspora Education at Bar-Ran University in Israel
was announced Monday night at a dinner honoring Rabbi
Lookstein, chancellor of the university, for more than 50
years of service to the Jewish community both in America
and Israel.
More than 500 persons attended the event at which Dr.
Lookstein was presented with an honorary doctorate of
philosophy by Rabbi Emanuel Backman, president of Bar-
Ilan.
Phillip Stollman of Detroit, chairman of the university's
board of trustees, announced a gift of $1 million from the
Stollman family to the university. Stollman said that the
Lookstein Institute will seek to alleviate the shortage of
teachers and mark "a fitting tribute to one of Jewry's out-
standing educators and leaders.

BANGKOK, Thailand —The council of the Asian Games Federation on Tuesday unanimously approved
a resolution to exclude Israel from the Eighth Asian Games in Bangkok in December.
The move was opposed by three uninvited representatives of teh Israeli Olympic Committee who
attended the meeting. The three were members of the Asian Sport Federation. In December 1976 the
federation voted in Montreal not to invite Israel to the games to avoid complicated security arrangements.
The Israelis issued a statement which said:
"The security issue was a totally unacceptable reasoning and Lord Killanin, president of the
International Olympic Committee, had stated that such reasoning used against Israel's partici-
pation opened the door to usage against any other country as well. Israel is part of the Asian
continent, a fact which no force in the world, and no amount of money can change."
Thailand agreed to be the host on condition that member countries put up $2.5 million. Five Arab
countries — Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates — pledged a total of $2
million, and a spokesman said the Arab nations would not compete with Israel.
The International Olympic Committee and two international sports groups, athletics and archery, have
informed the Asian Games Federation that they will not recognize the events.

NCCJ May Boycott
1980 `Passion Play'

NEW YORK — The president of the National Confer-
ence of Christians and Jews has declared that his or-
ganization will launch a significant effort to discourage
American Christians from attending the 1980 Passion
Play at Oberammergau, West Germany if the anti-
Semitic 1860 script is used.
Dr. David Hyatt, NCCJ president, said that the deci-
sion of the town council to keep the 1860 text which
portrays Jews as shylocks and Christ killers would re-
sult in boycotts and protest demonstrations in the town.
Dr. Hyatt, who was elected president of the Interna-
tional Council of Christians and Jews at its recent 25th
annual meeting and will assume office next January,
said that the ICCJ also would mobilize a campaign in
Europe to conduct protest demonstrations.
"There is absolutely no reason to use that anti-
Semitic script," said Dr. Hyatt, a Catholic, of
Bavaria's decennial Catholic folk pageant. "The
Second Vatican Council denounced anti-Semitism
and absolved Jews of any blame for the crucifixion
of Jesus.
"We hope the town council
realizes its error and instead uses
its 1750 version which makes
Satan the heavy and like the New
Testament, portrays the Jews as
divided over Jesus.

"But if it appears that the 1980

two-day festival of weeks, celebrating the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people, begins at
Shavuot, Saturday.

play will use the anti-Semitic script
which the murderous Adolph Hi-
tler praised in the 1930s, we will do
whatever we can to create an inter-
national boycott and significantly
reduce the 1970 attendance of
530,000," concluded Dr. Hyatt. DAVID HYATT
