Right-Wing , Neo-Nazi Focus of the U.S. Labor Party Unveiled

Party (USLP) have been

hate-monger who advocates
the 'Final Solution' against
American Jews."
King and Our Town
publisher Ed Kayatt have
been sued by LaRouche
and USLP for $20 million
as a result of the series.
They are also being sued
by Computron, a com-
puter software corpora-
tion that is connected
with LaRouchites. Attor-
ney David Heller is han-
dling both suits, as well
as a slander suit against
the Anti-Defamation
League of Bnai Brith.
King says that LaRouche,
who is a candidate for
President of the United
States in 1980, uses code
words such as "British" and
"Zionist" for "Jew," and
"humanist republic" for
"Nazi-totalitarian state."
According to the King
series, on Feb. 17, 1978
LaRouche "took the big
plunge and wrote of the
necessity for a Final Solu-
tion against world Jewry,"
using code words.

nacy, to force its way into
the national electoral
arena," King states. He
quotes sources close to
NCLC saying that
LaRouche does not expect to
win, but hopes to "emerge
from the Presidential cam-
paign as a major figure on
the ultra-right in this coun-
try — a Nazified version of
George Wallace."

While on campaign tours,
however, LaRouche "suc-
cessfully concealed his
anti-Semitic ideas" and
"managed to avoid the
image of a fanatic," King
reports.

A two-part series by
Howard Blum and Paul
L. Montgomery in the
New York Times on Oct. 7
and 8 states that the
USLP has already raised
over $100,600 for the 1980
elections. Through air-
port sales of its publica-
tions, fund-raising drives
among members and in-
come from computer and
printing- companies, the
USLP is expected to raise
more than $4 million this
year.

The Times articles report
that USLP members have a
"dominant role" in three
Manhattan companies that
have total revenues of $5
million per year. These are

BONN (JTA) — Erik
Blumenfeld, a member of
the Bundestag who is
president of the German-
Israel Association, has
called on Chancellor Hel-
mut Schmidt to make his
long postponed visit to Is-
rael as demonstration of the
Bonn government's rejec-
tion of oil blackmail and its
support of a negotiated solu-
tion of the Middle East con-
flict.
He also urged all Western
governments and political
figures to stop pressuring
Israel to negotiate with the
Palestine Liberation
Organization.
Schmidt was invited to Is-
rael in 1975 by the then
Premier Yitzhak Rabin.
The invitation was renewed
by Premier Menahem Be-
gin's government in 1977.
But the chancellor has held
back, saying he would go to
Israel at a time when such a
visit would be most appro-
priate to the peace efforts in
the area.
Blumenfeld, who is also
a member of the Parlia-
ment of Europe, said the
1980 will be a year of
"special significance" for
German-Israeli relations
and called on West Ger-
I many to support Israel at
I every stage of the dif-
ficult peace process with
Egypt.

He also urged that Israel
and Egypt receive massive
economic and financial sup-
port in a European
framework. In that connec-
tion, he proposed legislation
that would make it impossi-
ble to apply the Arab
boycott to trade between Is-
raeli and European firms.
"The Federal Republic
should do everything it can
in order to promote Israel's
trade with West Europe and
at the same time encourage
German firms to invest in
Israel," he said.
Blumenfeld was critical
of the media in both Ger-
many and Israel. He said
inaccurate and one-sided
reports were largely re-
sponsible for the deteriora-
tion of relations between
the two countries. Finally,
he said the Federal Repub-,
lic should strongly support
the preservation of
Jerusalem as a united city,
noting that Berlin is an
example of the difficulties
encountered in a divided
city.

Meanwhile, different
viewpoints on the Middle
East were expressed by two
members of a German dele-
gation that just returned
from Beirut where they met
PLO chief Yasir Arafat.
Dieter Schinzel, a So-
cial Democrat member of
the Bundestag and the

European Parliament,
called on the Common
Market countries to rec-
ognize the PLO as the of-
ficial representative of
the Palestinian people, to
support the establish-
ment of a Palestinian
state, to condemn Israel's
settlement policy in the
occupied territories and
"to put on diplomatic
pressure in order to
create the basis for peace
talks."
Another member of the
delegation, Lenelotte von
Bothmer, also a Social
Democrat, claimed to have
gotten the impression that
Arafat "recognizes Israel's
right to exist." But none of
the delegation members
was able to quote Arafat di-
rectly in a way that could be
interpreted as a deviation
from the PLO covenant's
demand for the liquidation
of the Jewish state.
The German delegation
was originally announced
as a Bundestag delegation
with participants from all
three parties in Parliament.
In the end, however, it was
composed only of Social
Democrats.

Those who honestly mean
to be true contradict them-
selves more rarely than
those who try to be consis-
tent.
— O.W. Holmes
