for Improved Polish-Jewish Relations

Kahane Jailed

TEL AVIV — Rabbi Meir
Kahane, founder of the
Jewish Defense League, has
begun a three-month jail
term in Israel for failing to
obey a court order to stag
out of the city of Hebron.
Kahane was ordered to
silty out of Hebron after he
began a campaign to drive
Arabs out of Israel and the
West Bank.

NEW YORK — Follow-
ing an interethnic dialogue
in Orchard Lake, Mich.,
that was stimulated by the
forthcoming visit of Pope
John Paul II to the United
States, national leaders
from the Polish--American
and Jewish communities
have announced plans for a
joint study of the origins of
anti-Polish and anti-Jewish
atittudes in some segments
of American society.
In a statement issued fol-
lowing a day-long consulta-
tion two weeks ago at St.
Mary's College in Orchard
Lake, both groups ex-
pressed deep concern over
the persistent manifesta-
tions in American society of
anti-Polish and anti-
Semitic slurs expressed in
popular culture. The
dialogue participants as-
serted that these slurs do
psychological damage,
especially to young people,
who are the victims of such
defamation.
The dialogue was or-

communities in their corn-
mon pursuit of objective
truth.
It was hoped that such
joint scholarly publications
and conferences would
eventually help both com-
munities to modify polemi-
cal tendencies and contrib-
ute to a deeper and more
empathetic relationship in
the future, especially
among young people.
Both groups also ex-
pressed the hope that such
increased sensitivity and
knowledge would be incor-
porated in Holocaust
studies in our nation's reli-
gious and public schools.
The Polish and Jewish
leaders also discussed the
condition of human rights
in various parts of the
world, and the need to join
hands in standing together
against the epidemic of de-
humanization in the world,
such as in Asia, Africa,
Latin America, Eastern
Europe and elsewhere.

In particular, both groups
agreed to cooperate in
studying and acting to-
gether to oppose denial of
religious liberty, religious
education, and freedom to
emigrate from Poland, the
Soviet Union, and other
eastern European coutries.
A subsequent consultation
of Polish and Jewish leaders
was agreed upon in order to
give more systematic con-
sideration of these shared
human rights concerns.
The Polish and Jewish
leaders also agreed to ar-
range in the coming months
for a high-level delegation
of Polish and Jewish reli-
gious and ethnic leaders to
visit Poland and Israel in
order to promote deepened
understanding of "spiritual
homelands" in both com-
munities.
Finally, the Polish and
Jewish leaders viewed the
elevation of "the Polish
Pope," Pope John Paul II, as
a development of unprece-
dented symbolic and social
significance to both com-
munities. They said, "There
is a need to seize this mo-
ment as an occasion-to try to
build a new, creative rela-
tionship between the Polish
and Jewish peoples that
would strengthen common
solidarity and fraternal re-
spect."

Official Claims U.S. Public
Is Souring on Aid to Israel

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
American public opinion is
growing increasingly anti-
Israel because of Israel's in-
creased requests for eco-
nomic aid, Douglas Bennet,
head of the U.S. Agency for
International Development
(AID) told Adi Amorai,
coordinator of the Labor
Alignment faction in the
Knesset Finance Commit-
tee. Bennet is in Israel to
review Israel's economic re-
quests for 1981.
He met last week with
Finance Minister Simha
Ehrlich, who outlined Is-

rael's economic needs.
Ehrlich told Bennet that the
peace agreement with
Egypt paradoxically made
it necessary for Israel to in-
crease its defense spending.
But Bennet maintained
that Israel had chosen a dif-
ficult time to make her in-
creased request.
Inflation and growing
unemployment in the U.S.
made it difficult to raise the
aid, he said.

One way' to stop a
runaway horse is to bet on
him.
