Israel Rejects EEC Settlement Statement

Israel has "totally rejected"
last week's Mideast state-
ment by the nine European
Economic Community


If the tradition of including the Jewish
National Fund in, the Will of every Jew were
wed, sufficient - resources would
be accumulated to ensure the future of the •
young Je wish State on a sound basis of land
development., social welfare, and justice. -

A bequest to the Jewish National Fund -
should be as traditional as having a Blue Box
in one's home.

You may want your bequest to be

(EEC) foreign ministers. A
letter sent by Foreign
Minister Moshe Dayan to
his European colleagues,
which Dayan read out from
the Knesset podium, termed
the EEC statement "injuri-
ous to the entire process of
The EEC ministers, in
their statement, criticized
"certain positions and ac-
tions" of the Israeli gov-
ernment as detrimental to
the peace process and speci-
fically criticized Israeli set-
tlements in the adminis-
tered areas as illegal.
Dayan's reply said, "The
position taken by the EEC
can only discourage the
negotiations between the
parties on all the various is-
sues involved in autonomy
and the future of Judaea,
Samaria and the Gaza dis-
trict. It had been our expec-
tation that the EEC would
give its full support to the
historic achievement of the
Israel-Egypt peace treaty

"I can only ask you to
weigh most carefully the
grave responsibility and
consequences of attempts to
prejudice and dictate from
without the course of
negotiations, strengthening
the forces committed to
their failure," Dayan's let-
ter said.
He claimed that, "The

Release of Ida Nudel Sought
on Anniversary of Her Exile

The outgoing chairman and
chairman-elect of the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry (NCSJ) urged Soviet
President Leonid Brezhnev
to release Ida Nudel from
exile and allow her to emi-
grate to Israel.
Eugene Gold, who will
end his- three-year chair-
manship on Aug. 15, and
Los Angeles attorney Bur-
ton Levinson, declared "In
the spirit of good will and
cooperation of the SALT II
accords, we urge the Soviet
Union to release Ida Nudel
and allow her to join her sis-
ter in Israel."
June 21 was the first an-
niversary of Nudel's exile to
a small colony a few
kilometers from the tiny
Siberian village of
Krivosheyno. Known as the
"Guardian Angel" of other
Jewish prisoners of con-
science in the Soviet Union,
Nudel first applied to emi-
grate to Israel in 1971.
Repeatedly detained and
interrogated by the secret
police, she placed on her
apartment balcony a sign
that read, "KGB, give me
my visa." That defiant act
precipitated her four-year
exile for "malicious
Meanwhile, the Long Is-
land Committee for Soviet
Jewry commemorated the
first anniversary of Nuclei's
exile by dedicating two
benches on the grounds of
the Nassau County Sup-
reme Court building in
Mineola in her name.
In a related event, a spe-
cial vigil was held outside
the Soviet Consulate in San
Francisco. The Bay Areas
Council on Soviet Jewry,
which sponsored the event,
declared the week of June
14-21 as Ida Nudel Week, as
part of the international
campaign to gain her re-

lease. In Israel, a group of
women demonstrated in
front of the Finnish Em-
bassy, which handles Soviet
affairs, urging Nudel's re-
In a related development,
officials in Washington
speculate that the Russians
will release JeWish dissi-
dent Anatoly Shcharansky
within a few months.
A 31-year-old computer
'technician, Shcharansky is
serving a 13-year term fol-
lowing his conviction last
summer on what Western
observers regard as
trumped-up charges of
treason and espionage.

Freedom Asked
for Wallenberg

United States has asked the
Soviet -Union to free Raoul
Wallenberg, the Swedish
diplomat missing since
1945 who is credited with
saving 25,000 Hungarian
Jews from deportation to
the Auschwitz death camp.
According to Simon Wie-
senthal, head of the Nazi
War Crimes Documenta-
tion Center in Vienna, Wal-
lenberg's name was on a list
of Soviet dissidents which
U.S. Secretary of State
Cyrus Vance handed to the
Soviet delegation at the Salt
II summit talks in Vienna
last week.

NY Film Maker Cites Problems

• All Utilities

Earle Shulman, a 25-
year-old New York Or-
thodox Jew who makes
films when he can get finan-
cial backing, has expressed
the belief that American
films generally stereotype
Jews and blames Jewish
movie-goers to some degree_
for that situation.
Shulman, who has a
major in mathematics and
works at odd jobs between
film-making, spelled out his
views in an analysis in the
December 1978 issue of
"Network," the publication

of the North American
Jewish Students Network.
Shulman listed some
foreign-made films dealing
with the Holocaust involv-
ing Jews in support of his
goal of putting into perspec-
tive "the lack of quality in
American Jewish movies."
By contrast, he said, in
the United States "we did
everything in our power" to
ignore the Holocaust. He
contended that this "is why
the rare movie that comes
along in America concern-
ing the Holocaust is trivial."
He cited "Voyage of the
Damned" as an example.

Israel-Egypt peace process.
Immediately after the is-
suance of the EEC state-
ment, West Germany's
Foreign Minister Hans-
Dietrich Genscher left for a
visit to Libya.
In Paris, Alain Poher,
president of the French Se-
nate said that many Fren-
chmen understand Israel's
attitude in the autonomy
talks. Poher, a friend of Is-
rael, did not, however, ex-
press support for Israel's
policy or its creation of.new
settlements in the occupied
Poher spoke at a
farewell lunch tendered
by the Parliamentary
Friendship Group with
Israel to departing Israeli
Ambassador Mordechai
Gazit. In spite of the
presence at the lunch of
Israel's staunchest
friends in France, none of
the speakers endorsed
the current settlement

Several members of the
French Parliament told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that they "understand but
not necessarily approve"
the Israeli position. Gazit is
due to leave France next
month. He will be replaced
by Meir Rosenne, legal ad-
visor to Israel's Foreign
Ministry, who is due to take
over his new post in the

Israelis Flee
Nicaragua War

Tahal, Israel's water re-
sources planning company
announced that it has pul-
led all of its personnel and
their families out of Man-
agua, - the capital of
Nicaragua which is now a
battlefield between the
Sandinista rebels and the
Somoza government.
The move means aban-
donment of an eight-year ir-
rigation and water systems
contract granted the Israeli
firm by the Somoza regime
three years ago.
The contract brought
Tahal revenue of more
than $1.5 million a year
and still had five years to
go. The company has also
abandoned its heavy
machinery and other
equipment in Nicaragua,
but that loss is insured.
What it fears most is that
the revolt in Nicaragua may
spark similar uprisings in
other Central and South
American countries where
Tahal is-working under con-

Merkava Rolling

Israel's armaments indus-
try is expected to export
$600 million worth of mate-
riel in 1980, including the
new Merkava tank.
The Merkava has 100,000
parts grouped in 131 series.
Israel manufactures 98 of
the series, imports 16 and
produces the rest under
cooperative production
rights. Some 200 factories
are involved in producing
the Merkava.
