Community Council Lobbies for Genocide Convention

The Jewish Community,
Council of Metropolitan De-
troit has reaffirmed its sup-
port, first voiced in 1965, of
U.S. Senate ratification of
the United Nations
Genocide Convention.
The action 'was taken in
response to correspondence

with the Ad Hoc Committee
on the Human Rights and
Genocide Treaties. The Ad
Hoc Committee, a national
coalition of organizations
concerned with human
rights, informed the Coun-
cil of a more favorable cli-
mate for passage in this ses-
sion of Congress based on
President Carter's strong
human rights stand and his
public statements support-
ing the treaties' ratifica-
tion.

committee drafted a revised
and updated resolution in
which its concerns are
communicated to U.S. Sen-
ators Donald Riegle and
Carl Levin, as well as the
leaders of Michigan's state
legislative bodies.

The Convention, which
has been before tie Se-
nate for over 30 years,
was drafted by the UN
following World War II.
The Convention obli-
gates ratifying govern-
ments to punish those
who act against or at-
tempt to destroy a na-
tional ethnic, religious or
racial group.

In other action, commu-
nity council is sending a let-
ter to area radio and televi-
sion stations about the need
for community and media
sensitivity to the separation
of church and state.
At the December meeting
of the council's community
relations committee, mem-
bers discussed their concern
over the content and tone of
a WYYZ-TV News com
mentary by Bill Bonds. The
commentary supported the

singing of Christmas carols
in public school.
Annually during the
holiday season, the council
receives complaints about
public school holiday pro-
grams with religious con-
tent as well as other reports
of violations of the church-
state separation doctrine.
The council's letter
charges the media "to ac-
cept the responsibility
for impartial and objec-
tive reporting and bal-
anced coverage."
The letter goes on to ex-
plain opposition to religious
observance in the public
schools, and concludes with
an invitation to station
management to meet with
council representatives.
A group of council mem-
bers met last week in Lans-
ing with state legislators
and officials of the Milliken
administration to hear
about pending legislation.
The group included Zelda
Robinson, Esther Fealk,
Leona Kutlov, Harriet Ar-
nowitz, Matilda Rubin,
Claudia Gold, Gerald Cook,
Norman Naimark and
council staffer Allan Gale.
