Bomb Blast Injures 22
in Busy Jerusalem Market

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A
bomb exploded in the
crowded Mahane Yehuda
market last week causing
slight injuries to 22 people,
most of whom were treated
at Shaare Zedek Hospital
and sent home.
The market place has
been a frequent target of
terrorist attacks, especially
on Fridays when house-
wives do their Sabbath
shopping. The explosive de-
vice was concealed in a can
deposited under a vegetable
stand. El Fatah, the mili-
tary arm of the Palestine
Liberation Organization,
claimed credit for the out-
rage. -
The police were red-faced
over the apparent laxity on
their part which might' ave
resulted in a tragedy of
major proportions in
Jerusalem last week.
A special police hives-
tigating panel found a
police sapper guilty of
negligence when he
failed to make a thorough
inspection of a car
parked on a busy
Jerusalem street Tues-
day morning with a pow-
erful explosive device
concealed in its trunk.
The sapper was sum-
moned by local shopkeepers
who became suspicious of a

silver Mercedes parked just
off Ben Yehuda St. in front
of a crowded cafe during the
early morning rush hour.
The sapper and other police
officers made a perfunctory.
inspection of the vehicle and
left. Almost three hours
passed before another police
team, summoned by
alarmed civilians, pried
open the trunk and dis-
covered a large bomb
primed to explode within a
short time. It was safely
dismantled.
The heroine of Ben
Yehuda St., meanwhile,
was presented an IL 10,000
reward by a citizens group
promoting security. She is
Helen Stettner, a news-
paper vendor who was the
first to report the parked car
to police. Her first customer
was Mayor Teddy Kollek
who turned up at the news-
stand with a kiss, a
Jerusalem City Medal and
warm words of appreciation
for her vigilance.

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The American Jewish Con-
gress has hailed the deci-
sion of two banks — both
subsidiaries of American
corporations — to withdraw
from a syndicate organE
a $3 million loan to Algeria
after the Bank Rothschild of
Zurich was excluded be-
cause of its Jewish owner-
ship.
The two banks that with-
drew from the syndicate
were Citicorp International
Finance of Geneva and the
Dow Banking Corp. of
Geneva.
Shortly after the syndi-
cate's blacklisting of Bank
Rothschild was disclosed,
Will Maslow, general coun-
sel of the AJCongress, wrote
to the subsidiaries' parent
corporations, Citicorp and
Dow Chemical Co.
Noting that Treasury
Department guidelines
expressly forbade par-
ticipation by American
firms in syndicates that
excluded banks on the
basis of race, religion or
national origin, Maslow
