a statement by the
demonstration's organizers,
was filled with distortions,
generalizations and sen-
sationalism."
"The New York Times
has repeatedly reported
only one side of the con-
flict. They neglect to re-
port antagonism by Arab
residents against the
Jewish residents in Is-
rael," according to
Moshe Pack, a Yeshiva
University student who
spoke at the demonstra-
tion.
In the statement explain-
ing their grievances against
The Times, the organizers of
the demonstration pointed
out that The Times devoted
a full page of coverage to Eli
Hazeev, who was one of the
fatalities in the May 2 Heb-
ron attack, while ignoring
the others.
"They deliberately chose
a victim that was an excep-
tion rather than a represen-
tative of the group," the
statement said. "The group
was composed of peaceful
students, many of whom
were in Hebron only for that
weekend. They deliberately
printed an anti-Israel pic-
ture."
"We demand that The
New York Times report the
news objectively," Pack said
to the applause of the
demonstrators, many of
whom carried copies of The
Times dyed yellow, to
dramatize their opposition
to "yellow journalism."
According to Green,
The Times has refused to
print "over 100" letters to
the editors sent by
Jewish students demand-
ing The Times "correct its
earlier errors." The
Times also refused to
print an obituary about
the Hebron victims in the
death notices, Pack
charged.
Tuvyah Gross, head of
Bnei Akiva, and Dr, Moshe
Koppel of Princeton Uni-
versity, called for "economic
sanctions" against The
Times until it changes its
"biased reporting" on Israel.
At the end of the rally a
petition demanding "objec-
tivity" in reporting was sent
by the leaders of the demon-
strators to the editorial

Film Spurred Neo-Nazism
W. German Official Claims

BONN (JTA) — Interior
Minister Gerold Tandler of
Bavaria raised a heated
controversy when he stated
in Munich last week that
the screening of the Ameri-
can television film
"Holocaust" in West Ger-
many last year was largely
responsible for a dramatic
rise in neo-Nazi activity.
He attributed neo-
Nazism to anti-Semitism,
denial of Nazi war crimes
and glorification of the Hit-
ler era.
The number of anti-
Semitic incidents reported
in Bavaria in 1979 was 279
compared to 127 in the prev-
ious year. One-third of the

Munich and Nuremberg,
the minister said. However,
he observed that despite the
increase of violence and in-
citement, the influence of
the extremist groups on th
public, remains small.
"Holocaust" was screene-'
on national television
January 1979 and accorct
ing to polls had a dramatic
influence on the estimated
25 million viewers. But
while the film ended West
Germans' silence and indif-
ference toward the Nazi
persecution of Jews, later
polls showed that the effects
quickly wore off.
