DeBorchgrave Backs Israel
Israelis Urge Olympic Boycott
to - Avert Reprisals Against Jews On Anti-PLO W.B. Stance

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A
group of Israeli activists on
behalf of Soviet Jewry has
urged the International
Olympic Committee (IOC)
to boycott the 1980 Olympic
Games in Moscow.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Prof. Andrei Sakharov,
center, now banished to Gorky, spoke up strongly and
fearlessly for the rights of Jews in the USSR. In a
photo obtained by the Student Struggle for Soviet
Jewry, he is shown at an unofficial Jewish seminar in
Moscow, flanked by refusniks Ilya Essas and Jacob
Alpert.

The group, which calls it-
self "I Am My Brother's
Keeper," cabled the IOC in
Lake Placid, N.Y., saying
they have evidence that
Soviet authorities will take
new steps against Soviet
Jews. (The IOC voted this
week to keep the Games in
Moscow.)
A spokeswoman for the
group said that it had re-
ceived a telephone call from
one Jewish activist in the
USSR and a letter from an-
other warning of dangers
facing Jews.
She quoted the letter as
saying: "We are living in
hard times. We are ques-
tioned by the KGB and
are afraid they plan to
throw us out of Moscow
before the Olympic
Games."
Meanwhile, 25 Knesset
members of various factions
signed a petition calling for
a boycott of the Games.
The petition was initiated
by Geula Cohen, a former
Herut MK who has joined
the ultra-nationalist

Tehiya faction. The petition
cites several reasons for
boycotting the Games in
Moscow — the Soviet inter-
vention in Afghanistan; the
treatment of Andrei
Sakharov; and foremost, the
treatment of Soviet Jews
seeking to emigrate.

In New York, the critical
problems of the plight of
Soviet Jews, the U.S. re-
sponse to these problems,
the present state of East-
West relations, anti-
Semitism in the USSR, im-
plications of recent emigra-
tion trends, the 1980
Presidential campaign and
the Olympics are among the
subjects to be covered by the
National Conference on
Soviet Jewry at a national
leadership policy confer-
ence April 13-15 at the In-
ternational Inn in Wash-
ington, D.C.
Donald Lefton of
Miami is conference
chairman. Co-chairmen
are Joel Sprayregen of
Chicago and Nan Wood
of the National Council of
Jewish Women (New
York).
A highlight of the confer-
ence will be an awards
dinner at which Mrs.
Rosalynn Carter, who has
been nominated to receive
the NCSJ Solidarity Award
"for her support to the Con-
gressional Wives for Soviet
Jewry, an NCSJ affiliate,
and for her expressed con-
cern on behalf of POC Ida
Nudel," will be honored. Ms.
Nudel is serving a four-year
term in exile in Siberia.
Among the speakers
scheduled to address the
conference are Lev
Ulanovsky, a former He-
brew teacher and physicist
from Moscow who arrived in
Israel last October, and
Eduard Kuznetsov, one of
five prisoners who were ex-
changed by Moscow and
Washington for two Soviet
spies last April.
In addition to the
scheduled sessions and
workshops, attendees will
have the opportunity to par-
ticipate in the vigil for
Soviet Jews, held daily in
front of the So iet Embassy
since 1970.

Ability involves respon-
sibility; power, to its last
particle, is duty.

Newsweek foreign corre-
spondent Arnaud deBor-
chgrave spoke to the Eco-
nomic Club of Detroit on
Tuesday at Cobo Hall.
He stated in his address
that Isreal cannot turn over
the West Bank to the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion because the PLO is
influenced by the KGB —
the Soviet secret police.
He told Alvin Kushner,
Jewish Community Council
executive director, follow-
ing his speech, "I am finally
and thoroughly convinced
that the KGB controls the
PLO."
De Borchgrave, who has
been unsympathetic to Is-
rael, stated in his speech
that George Habash, leader
of the Popular Front for the
Liberation of Palestine, is a
terrorist.

Al Change
Brings Protest

El

NEW YORK — El Al, Is-
rael's national airline, re-
cently decided to change its
turquoise-colored, first-
class stewardess uniforms
in favor of a new style.
The woman's division of
Histadrut registered a pro-
test after hearing rumors
that the new outfits were to
be slinky, tight-fitting dres-
ses. After El Al published
some of the designs under
consideration, which were
along the lines of modestly
cut, formal gowns, the
Palestinian Society for
Preservation of the Family
charged that the designs
were stolen from Palesti-
nian folk art.
Despite the protests, the
airline intends to go ahead
with the changes.

Yearbook Report
Details Action
Against Nazis

NEW YORK — Increased
neo-Nazi activities in the
United States in recent
years have been met by a
Jewish communal response
involving mass action,
widespread educational ef-
forts, and increased rejec-
tion by Jews of the ab-
solutist concept of free
speech for Nazis espoused
by the American Civil
Liberties Union, according
to a report in the 1980
American Jewish. Year-
book.
This change by the
Jewish community from a
previous history of attempt-
ing to counter Nazi activi-
ties through the quarantine
approach — ignoring most
Nazi incidents in the hope
that the Nazis, bereft of
publicity and media atten-
tion, would disappear — is
detailed in the report, titled
"Jews, Nazis and Civil
Liberties."

More than 4,000 Jews left
the Soviet Union every
month in 1979. Allied
Jewish Campaign funds
helped them settle in Israel
and elsewhere in the West.

about peace in the Middle
East, saying that peace
between Israel and Egypt
would have come in spite
of the Camp David ac-
cords, but that the key to
peace was solution of the
Palestinian problem on
the West Bank.
He said that King Hus-
sein of Jordan was the key
to this problem and the U.S.
missed an opportunity to
solve it by not pushing for a
solution before the Arab
summit in 1974 tied Hus-
sein's hands on the West
Bank.
