Algerian Jews Visit Their Homeland Without Incident

PARIS (JTA) — M'ore
than 100 Algerian Jews re-
turned to Paris last week
from a 10-day pilgrimage to
their former home. It is the
first time since the Euro-
pean mass exodus from
Algeria in 1962 that Jews

have returned, even if only
for a brief visit, to what is
one of the most extremist
Arab states.
The visit was organized
by a Jewish organization of
Jews from Oran which said
the Algerian authorities
"asked no questions" about
the participants and "wel-
comed us all."
The Algerian govern-
ment extended to the vis-
itors all possible facilities
and several of the Algerian
Jews said upon their return

that they were "surprised
by the warm and even en-
thusiastic welcome" they
received.
The Jews, most of
whom stem from the pro-
vince of Orttn, spent most
of their time at the tomb
of Rabbi Ephraim Aln-
Kaua in Tlemcen. They
also visited Oran, Siddi
El Abbes and other major
cities. They said that the
former Tlemcen
synagogue had been
converted into an Alge-
rian cultural club after
the Jewish mass exodus
16 years ago, but that the
rabbi's tomb has
mained unchanged and
seemed to be well taken
care of.
The Algerian authorities
set up a temporary
synagogue for the pilgrims
in the city's main hotel,
"The Zianides," where they
also found a strictly kosher
kitchen and accommoda-
tions.
The Jews said they were
surprised by the warm wel-
come they received. They
said upon their return to
Paris that literally hun-
dreds of their former Mos-
lem neighbors showed up at
the hotel in the hope of

U.S. Arms Sales
to Arabs Blasted

LONDON (JTA) — Is-
raeli Minister of Agricul-
ture Ariel Sharon accused
the United States of being
the main arms supplier to
the Arab states and said Is-
rael did not take seriously
pledges by the Arab states
that the American arms
would not be used against
Israel.
Sharon, the most outspo-
ken "hawk" in the Israeli
Cabinet, said his govern-
ment intended to rally its
supporters throughout the
world to protest growing
arms sales by Western pow-
ers to the Middle East.

meeting former friends.
"People kept inviting us to
their homes and arranging
festive meals and receptions
for us. Dozens of Moslems
walked with us up to the
rabbi's tomb to show their
good sentiments and their
friendship," the pilgrims
said.
Local AFabs said and
kept repeating to the vis-
itors: "We (the Arabs)
even want peace with Is-
rael. What more can you
expect after (President
Anwar) Sadat's visit to
Jerusalem? Now it is up
to Israel to show its good
will and peaceful inters
lions. As for us (Algerian
Jews and Arabs) let us be
brothers like in the old
days."
Most of the visitors said
they were told that if Alge-
rian Jews now living in Is-
rael want to return on a
visit to Algeria they will be
allowed in, on condition
that they travel with a col-
lective passport delivered in
France "so that we don't
have to know officially who
they are — this is, until
peace with Israel is signed."
Jews have traditionally
been able to visit Tunisia
and Morocco where many
continue to operate
businesses while officially
living in France.

Journalists Blast
Israel Secrecy

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
Journalists representing
three major organizations of
their profession met at Beth
Sokolow here last week to
consider measures that will
ensure the free flow of polit-
ical information.
The subject has become a
matter of concern since the
Likud government took of-
fice a year ago because it
has made greater use than
its predecessors of the law
that allows the Cabinet to
meet in the guise of a
ministerial security com-
mittee, the deliberations of
which are classified and
may be withheld from the
media.
A deputation of editors
raised the matter with
Premier Menahem Begin
last February. He acknow-
ledged the problem and
promised to limit Cabinet
security meetings as much
as possible. But the jour-
nalists assembled here
charged that the promise
was not kept.
They 'represented the
Committee of Daily News-
paper Editors, the National
Journalists Association and
the Press Council.
Meanwhile, the pres-
idium of the National Fed-
eration of Israeli Jour-
nalists has protested
against the suppression of
press freedom in Egypt.
