political science which
opens in Moscow on Aug. 12.
Prof. Asher Arian of
Tel Aviv University, head
of the Israeli chapter of
the Political Science
Association, reported
that only 30 of the 40
applicants have been
notified that they will re-
ceive 'visas. The others
have received no notifi-
cation. Moreover, none of
the applicants has been
notified about accommo-
dations and it appears
that no reservations have
been made for them.
Unless the full delegation
receives visas and - accom-
modations, Israel may have
to cancel its participation in
the forum. According to
Arian, the American and
French 'political science
associations have promised
that if all 40 Israelis are not
allowed to attend, they
would cancel their partici-
pation.
It was pointed out, how-
ever, that a decision by Is-
rael to boycott the congress-
would be collective. The
academicians with visas
could go to Moscow on an
individual basis if they
chose to but would not be
part of an Israeli delegation.

NY Rallylor Boat People
Draws a Diverse Crowd

NEW YORK (JTA)
Some
10,000 people
gathered at the United Na-
tions last Sunday for a rally
on behalf of the "boat
people." The rally, or-
ganized by the Committee
Against Genocide by Viet-
nam, was co-sponsored by a
coalition of more than 100
Chinese-American, Jewish,
Christian and civic groups.
The Jewish community
was represented by Martin
Begun, a national officer of
the American Jewish Con-
gress and -vice president of

Olympic Committee was op-
timistic about Israel's ap-
peararice at the Moscow
Olympics.
Addressing a luncheon
for him by the U.S. Com-
mittee Sports for Israel,
Lalkin said, "Our rela-
tionship with the Rus-
sians has improved
steadily and all indica-
tions are that we should
have smooth sailing with
the Russian Olympic of-
ficials."
Soviet sports authorities
"invited our yachting
people to participate in the
Games in Tallinin this
summer and requested that
our four-man and four-
woman crews in rowing join
the competition which will
be held in August in Mos-
cow."
Lalkin, who toured the
United States for a month
under the auspices of the
U.S. Committee Sports for
Israel, noted that Israeli
athletes are preparing for
the 1980 Games. One of the
top possibilities for a medal
in the Games is Amir
Ganiel who is training
under swimming coach
Don Lamont on the West
Coast. He is one of Israel's
brightest stars and together
with Esther Roth plus the
seven or so American
athletes who made aliya, Is-
rael will have strong repre-
sentation next year.

the Jewish Community Re-
lations Council of • New
York. Begun referred to the
thousands of Jewish refu-
gees during World War II
who were refused haven
from the death- camps of
Nazi Germany:. "They were
forced to return to the
Holocaust in Europe, and
death," Begun said. "It
seems incredible that the
world -has such a short
memory."
Analogies
the
to
Holocaust were the theme of
the rally. Speakers such as
Donald McAvoy, vice
president of the National
Conference of Christians
and Jews, and Reps.
William Green (R-NY) and
Ted Weiss (D-NY) recalled
the similarities between the
genocide committed by
Germany to that of the Vie-
tnamese actions today.
McAvoy noted, "We failed
the test of humanity during
World War II..This is a sec-
ond chance for humanity
and we dare not fail again."
Meanwhile, Bnai Brith
announced that it will
actively participate in the
assistance of helping to
resettle the Vietnamese
boat people in Canada.
Louis R. Ronson,
president of the Canadian
Bnai Brith, -advised that
"all lodges and members are
encouraged to send dona-
tions to Bnai Brith ear-
marking their contribu-
tions for Project Rescue
Boat People.'
