THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Academic, Government Leaders
Find Hope for Peace in Treaty

.

Reactions from univer-
sity and government offi-
cials interviewed by The
Jewish News on Monday's
peace treaty signing be-
tween Israel and Egypt in
Washington were favorable
and hopeful.
Dr. Thomas Bonner,
president of Wayne State
University, who was in
Washington for the cere-
mony said:
"It was a thrill for me as a
historian to be at one of the
historic turning points in
history. I am more optimis-
tic than most observers in
thinking that this is a long-
term peace settlement In
particular, I admire the
courage of the three partici-
pants who made this his-
toric settlement possible."
Michigan Gov. William
G. Milliken was pleased
by the results of Mon-
day's peace pact signing.
According to his assistant
press secretary, Paul
Holmes, "the Governor is
extremely pleased that
Egypt and Israel could come
to an agreement. He said he
believes that this is an im-
portant step to worldwide
peace and understanding.
"He said he believes that
the people of Michigan are
proud and pleased as are the
people of the rest of the
world in this first step

Commendations
President Carter's courage-
ous leadership came from
many 'Detroit groups and
individuals.
Community
Jewish
Council President John
Shepherd sent a message of
cheer to the President.
At a specially convened
meeting of the Jewish Wel-
fare Federation, the follow-
ing resolution was adopted
and sent to Carter:
"The Board of Gover-
nors of Detroit's Jewish
Welfare Federation, con-
vened in formal session
one day following the
momentous and historic
treaty ending the
generation-long
Egyptian-Israeli conflict,
extends to you, Mr.
President, our sincerest
congratulations in
recognition of your in-
dispensable participa-
tion.
"Your skill, courage and
patience has now brought
true peace much nearer to
eventual fulfillment. Our
entire Jewish community
shares your hope that elu-
sive goal may be realized in
time, as each difficult obsta-
cle is overcome. True peace
will benefit our country as
well as the Mid-East."
Jewish leaders through-
out the U.S. sent messages
of congratulation and held
special meetings to com-
memorate the peace treaty.
A special prayer service was
held at the national conven-
tion of the Central Confer-
ence of American Rabbis
(Reform) meeting in
Phoenix.

towards peace."
Michigan Sen. Carl Levin
was hopeful about the new
development.
"The signing of a treaty
between-Israel and Egypt
is hopefully the begin-
ning of peace. I had the
opportunity this week to
be a part of the cere-
monies surrounding this
momentous event. It was
a moving experience, of-
fering hope to all of us
who want peace in the
Middle East so badly.
"I am sobered, however,
by the reality that the
treaty does not close the
door on war. It means the
door to peace is open. (Yasir)
Arafat and the PLO (Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion) are using the treaty as
an emotional issue with
which to fire their fight
against Israel. The treaty is

a needed first step, despite
that fact. But we have a long
way to go."
Congressman William
Brodhead also voiced a
hopeful sentiment.
"I believe that the sign-
ing of the peace treaty be-
tween Israel and Egypt
demonstrates to the
world that long and
deep-seated conflicts and
rivalries between nations
and peoples can be re-
solved if strong, diligent,
intelligent leaders of
good will are truly com-
mitted to do so."
Detroiters who attended
the ceremonies in Washing-
ton Monday included Paul
Zuckerman, former
president of the United
Jewish Appeal, and Frieda
Leemon, national president
of Pioneer Women. Zuc-
kerman was invited by the

White House to attend the
dinner following the cere-
monies.

Italian Jewish observers
are upset that the occa-
sional newspaper articles
bear the worn-out marks of
the insidious anti-Semitism
of the past.
A recent example is a
pseudo-scholarly article on
Karl Marx's views on
Shylock, published last
Thursday by the interna-
tionally circulated "Cor-
riere Della Sera," in the
context of a coming TV
production of Shakespeare's
"Merchant of Venice."

Italian Incidents Spread Bias

. ROME (JTA) — After the
neo-Nazi demonstrations
March 8 by 100 teenagers at
the Israel-Italy basketball
match in the northern city
of Varese, and a counter-
demonstration by Roman-
Jewish youths at a match by
the same Italian team a few
days ago in the town of Reiti
in which a large number of
local people supported the
Jewish - demonstrators,
flare-ups of anti-Semitism
have been' noted all over
Italy.
Signs range from Nazi
graffiti on the walls —
"Jews to the ovens" — to
anonymous messages to
newspapers and schools. In
the past week, Jewish nur-
sery and elementary schools
in Rome, housing about
1,000 children, have had to
interrupt classes and take
the children on walks while
the police seahed the
buildings for bombs an-
nounced by telephone 'calls.
No bombs were found.
A popular afternoon
paper, "Paese Sera," (Com-
munist), printed an an-
nouncement last Thursday,
phoned in by a frightened
citizen who related that an
anonymous phone caller
had threatened "an atroci-
ous vendetta" if the mes-
sage he dictated to her was
not printed the next day.
The message an-
nounced "a month of
anti-Semitic guard duty,"
adding, "We defy citizens
