were involved in the pre-
liminary preparations of
the Arab terrorists who at-
tacked Kibutz Misgav Am
in April.
Ibrahim al Tawil, 21, who
says he was a cook employed
by the Norwegian battalion,
made the charge in a televi-
sion interview.
He claimed that two
Norwegian soldiers met
with representatives of the
Arab Liberation Front at
his home in Hirbet el-Salm
village to discuss the possi-
bility of obtaining permits
from the Norwegian force
for the terrorists to pass
through the area it controls
to the Israeli border.
Tawil was arrested by
Maj. Saad Haddad's
Christian militia in south
Lebanon and turned over
to Israeli authorities. He
admitted to serving as a
guide for the terrorists.
He said on the television
program that he was
selected because he is a na-
tive of the area and knows
its topography. He said he
made a prelimiriary tour of
the route chosen by the ter-
rorists and acted as their
scout on the night of the at-
tack on Misgav Am. He said
he saw them safely up to the
Israeli border.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. —
Joseph E. Seagrams and
Sons Inc., the world's
largest producer of alcohol
and wine, has awarded a
$5.8 million research grant
to Harvard Medical School
to study why some people
are more susceptible to the
alcoholism than others.
The grant is the largest
amount ever given for basic
research by private indus-
try, 'according to Harvard
President Derek Bok.
Edgar M. Bronfman,
chairman of Seagrams, be-
lieves that the research
might lead to greater
understanding of the causes
of alcoholism.

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The U.S. Department of
Commerce has accused the
Kintetsu World Express
Inc., of Houston, Tex., of
26 violations of federal laws
prohibiting support for the
Arab boycott of Israel by
discriminating against
American companies doing
business with Israel or
managed by American
Jews.
Kintetsu is an air freight
forwarder and a wholly-
owned subsidiary of Kin-
tetsu World Express Inc., of
Tokyo. A copy of the charges
was made available to the
Jewish Telegraphic
Agency.
Specifically, the company
is alleged to have supplied
negative statements of ori-
gin" in making 19 ship-
ments of U.S. manufactured

vided capital of Israel," and
called upon the Carter Ad-
ministration to recognize
that fact by relocating the
U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem,
and to reaffirm the right of
Jews to settle in any part of
their historic homeland, in-
cluding Judea and Samaria.
The delegates urged the
United States not to bow to
the pressures being exerted
by Arab and European
states, and to refuse recog-

less and until they clearly
and publicly renounce their
hostilities and recognize the
right of Israel to exist peace-
fully."
Delegates also called
for a halt in arms ship-
ments to Saudi Arabia,
Syria and all other states
opposing the peace proc-
ess, and asked for an im-
mediate increase in mili-
tary and economic aid to
Israel and assurances
that the U.S. will abide by
its agreement which
guarantees Israel's oil
supply.

Israel Politicians Urged
to Set Good Example

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The Zionist General Coun-
cil, at its annual meeting
last week, heard a plea from
President Yitzhak Navon
for the nation's political
leaders to provide "vision"
and a better "personal
example."
It also learned from
World Zionist Orgnaniza-
tion Treasurer Akiva
Levinsky that the WZO's
budget this year has been
reduced some 15 percent by
inflation although in dollar
terms it is the same as last
year.
Another sober note was
sounded by Avraham
Shenker, a member of the
WZO Executive and head of
its community services sec-
tion, who reported a decline
in the WZO's standing
abroad despite its increased
efforts to play an active role
in Jewish communities
overseas.
Navon said that the
growth in numbers of the
WZO in recent years, with
the accretion to it of
synagogual bodies, did
not necessarily increase
its strength.
That comment seemed to
some observers to offer ob-
lique support to a draft reso-
lution strongly promoted by
the younger leadership
which would oblige Zionist
leaders abroad to immig-
rate to Israel after two
terms in office — or step
down.
The

National Council of Young
Israel, at the Echo Hotel in
Ellenville, N.Y., com-
mended Israeli Prime
Minister Menahem Begin
for his courage in moving
the prime minister's offices
to the Old City of
Jerusalem.
The Young Israel Dele-
gates, representing more
than 160 branches and
250,000 members across the
United States, reaffirmed

goods, principally oil-
drilling equipment, from
Houston to Egypt and
Kuwait and also to have
failed to report to the de-
partment seven boycott re-
quests that it is required by
law to make known.
In connection with
these shipments, the de-
partment said, Kintetsu
certified to recipients in
Egypt and Kuwait that
the goods originated in
the U.S. and not Israel,
nor did the raw materials
used in their manufac-
ture originate in Israel."
U.S. administrative sanc-
tions against Kintetsu in-
clude a civil penalty up to
$10,000 for each violation;
revocation of export
licenses, denial of export
privileges, and exclusion
from practice before de-
partment agencies.

encountered vigorous resis-
tance from veteran Dias-
pora leaders and is there-
fore unlikely to be sup-
ported by the Israeli dele-
gates who are linked by
party bonds to the Diaspora
leaders.
Levinsky, in his financial
report, noted that the
budget for this year is frozen
at $50.8 million, the same
as last year, though with 15
percent less buying power
because of inflation.
Levinsky noted that
some $23 million is ear-
marked for immigration
and absorption this year
from Western countries.
The WZO deals only with
voluntary immigration
while the Jewish Agency
is concerned with immi-
gration from areas of
Jewish hardship.
Shenker told the council
that the WZO has not been
entirely successful in coun-
tering the effects of anti-
Zionist resolutions at the
United Nations among
some Jews, particularly
young Jews. He said the
state of Israel radiated "con-
fused and confusing rays" to
the Diaspora.

Reacting to the market
decrease in Jewish emigre
tion from the USSR, and the
plight of the "refuseniks"
who are kept in limbo, the
Young Israel delegates de-
manded that the USSR im-
mediately release all imp-
risoned activists, prisoners
of conscience, particularly
Iosif Mendelevich and the
other activists convicted at
the infamous 1970 Lenin-
grad Trials.
The Young Israel dele-
gates unanimously elected
Nathaniel Saperstein as
president of the organiza-
tion and elected Harold M.
Jacobs, first vice president;
David Love was elected as
second vice president; Bert
Weichselbaum as treasurer;
Ben Frohlich as recording
secretary; and Morris Sole,
financial secretary.
Among the newly elected
regional vice presidents, are
Milton Duchan and Sam
Novetsky of Detroit.
