ers of the Kiryat Arba com-
munity called upon the gov-
ernment to confiscate 12
Arab houses which were
owned by Jews in the past,
and move Jews into them.
Meanwhile, women from
Kiryat Arba are still oc-
cupying the old Hadassah
building in Hebron. Last
week, the military govern-
ment allowed them free
passage to and from the
building. The ban on entry

of others — including
newsmen — is still in force.
The women want the
building to be the first to be
resettled with Jews.
Last week, the military
government banned a
political rally by Arabs in
Hebron but at the same
time lifted some of the re-
strictions imposed over a
month ago on the West
Bank college town of Bir
Zeit, north of Ramallah.

ZOA's Novick
Hits LZA Head

The leader of 'the Zionist
Organization of America
has accused the leader of the
Labor Zionist Alliance of
acting contrary to the de-
sired goal of a "united
Jewish community" in sup-
port of Israel.
Ivan J. Novick, president
of the ZOA, took LZA
president Prof. Allen Pol-

statement issued by Pollack
a week ago criticizing Is-

Ariel Sharon's recent call
for intensive Jewish settle-
ments on the West Bank
and Gaza Strip over the
next 20-30 years.
In a letter to Pollack,
Novick wrote: "You state
your concern for the need of
a 'united Jewish commu-_

issued a public statement

Mayor Fahed Kawassme
of Hebron said the rally was

residents of Kiryat Arba."

rael 98-76 last week to win
the European basketball
championship in _Turin,
Italy. But Israelis were still
excited that their team was
the runnerup, the highest
finish ever achieved by an
Israeli quintet.
The Israeli team's sur-
prise showing in the finals
came after it beat Czechos-
