Dutch Anti-Israel Movie
A Statue of Albert Einstein Joins
Draws Angry Jewish Protest Washington's Jewish Monuments

AMSTERDAM (JTA) —
A documentary film with a
strong anti-Israel bias, due
to be screened on Dutch na-
tional television Sunday,
has aroused angry protests
from the organized Dutch
Jewish community and the
three congregational
branches of Judaism in Hol-
land.
The 90-minute film, titled
"The Place of the Stranger,"
was previewed for the press
under the auspices of The
Netherlarvis Ministry of
Culture which had sub-
, sidized its production.
The film was made by a
young Dutch Jew, Rudolph
Van Dan Berg. Demands
that it be banned or that the
most controversial se-
quences be deleted were re-
jected by the ministry on
grounds that the protesters
had not even seen the film.
• But the Ashkenazic
congregation in Amster-
dam may seek a court-
order to delete a se-
quence that was made in
its synagogue last May at

services celebrating the
30th anniversary of Is-
rael's independence and
the synagogue building's
50th anniversary.
The congregation says it
was not aware of the anti-
Israel nature of the
documentary • when it
granted permission to film
the services.
The synagogue sequence
focuses on the sermon deliv-
ered by Ashkenazic Chief
Rabbi Meir Just which it in-
terprets as fiercely
nationalistic and anti-
Palestinian.
Earlier, a Dutch court
rejected an appeal by a
Jewish journalist, Her-
mann Bleich, to order de-
letion of .a sequence in
which he was inter-
viewed without knowl-
edge, he says, 6f the film's
nature.
The documentary depicts
Israel as a strongly
militaristic state that
created the Palestiniadref-
ugee problem and has
caused great suffering to
Palestinians on the -West
Bank, Gaza and in south
Lebanon.

BEIRUT — Israeli jet
fighters reportedly buzzed
Beirut on Monday, causing
sonic booms to buffet the
city.
At the same time, the
Moslem market town of
Nabatiyeh which is con-
trolled by Palestinians, a
Palestinian camp near Tyre
and the Druze town of Has-
baya were shelled by heavy
artillery.
Druze sources in Lebanon
believe the Druze town was
shelled because it is the
home of a Lebanese general
who signed an order cutting
off payment to the Lebanese
Christian forces in south
Lebanon. Israel will repor-
tedly pay the 400 troops.
Their salaries reportedly
total $100,000 per month.

years of the American Fed-
eration of Labor, is the only
other Jew honored with a
statue in-Washington, a city
with more than 80 monu-
ments.
President Franklin D.
Roosevelt dedicated the
Gompers statue off Massa-
chusetts Ave. in 1933, nine
years after the death of the
London-born leader of the
American labor movement.
In a related matter, the
U.S: Capitol Historical
Society has confirmed
research by former Re-
nsselaer Polytechnic In-
stitute Prof. Samuel Re-
zneck that a Jewish
American naval officer
commissioned the statue
of Thomas Jefferson that
has 'stood in the Capitol
Rotunda for more than a
-
century.
According to Prof. Re-
zneck, Lt. Uriah Phillips
Levy commissioned a
French sculptor to produce
the statue in 1833. The
statue first was displayed
cin the White House lawn for
many years before Levy
convinced Congress to move
it to the Capitol in the mid-
1,870s.
The monument to Eins-
tein was commissioned by
the National Academy of
Sciences last November for
permanent display on the
academy's grounds. It is
scheduled to be unveiled to
coincide with the world-
wide celebrations of the
100th anniversary of Eins-
tein's birth, March 14. The
academy elected Einstein to
- the professional organiza-
tion in 1942.
"Rarely do we undertake
to honor a specific scientist
other than by election to
membership or td office or
by award of one of the med-
als we administer," said
Philip Handler, president of
the academy.

In announcing-the plans
for the monument, Handler
said 'that while it is iri-
tended to serve as a tribute
to the -sciences, it also will
"remind observers that .
Einstein found in this coun-
try refuge from a monstrous"
tyranny, that he embraced
American citizenship and,
repaid his obligation to
America many times over."
