THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

PLO's Friend Is Picketed

Members of the Detroit Zionist Federation, the
Zionist Organization of Detroit and other groups are
shown picketing the Illinois delegation at the
Sheraton-Southfield Hotel during the Republican Na-
tional Convention in Detroit. The picketers protesting
Illinois Congressman Paul Findley's support of the
Palestine Liberation Organization.

Does 'Peace Now' Movement
Present a Hopeless Case?

By EZEKIEL LEIKEN
Philadelphia Zionist
Organization

The Peace Now move-
ment is projecting a
scenario for Arab-Israel re-
lations, which is as un-
realistic as it is selfdefeat-
ing.
For years the "peaceniks"
have been scouring the
globe in search of moderate
Palestinians. They met and
conferred with members of
the PLO, and from time to
time issued statements
foreshadowing an Israeli-
Arab "undeistanding" and -
suggesting, that not-
withstanding the Palesti-
nian Covenant of 1964 and
the explosive PLO rhetoric,
there was an undercurrent
of moderation and recon-
= ciliation running through
PLO ranks.
Time and again, their
glimmering hope was shat-
tered by extreme PLO pro-
nouncements, showing no
deviation from the classical
terrorist document of 1964
— calling for "the elimina-
tion of the Zionist entity,"
the state of Israel. The
Breira movement, a
forerunner of Peace Now,
had reached a dead-end and
quietly expired.
The reason for its demise?
I could evoke no correspond-
ing echo from the other side.
Some Palestinian Arabs
who did meet with Breira
and Peace Now emissaries
\ave been assassinated.
Jthers have been re-
pudiated by acknowledged
PLO spokesmen.
it The inescapable conclu-
' ,ion is that the Palestinian
Arabs are, once again, mis-
sing the opportunity to co-
exist with Israel and shape
their own destiny within a
framework of autonomy and
self-rule. Once again they
insist oil exercising their
right of self-determination
upon the ruins of the state of
Israel.
But the Peace Now
movement is not to be deter-
red. Finding no moderate
Palestinians to participate
in a dialogue with, they now

seek a dialogue with Ameri-
can Jews and solicit their
financial and moral support
for their platform, which,
thus far, has been nothing
but a mirage.
In advertisements pub-
lished in Anglo-Jerish pap-
ers coast-to-coast, Ameri-
can Friends of Peace Now
call for a halt to the settle-
ments on the West Bank
and urge the Israel Gov-
ernment, via the American
media, to negotiate with
any Palestinian body that
renounces terrorism.
Our guess is that if
Peace Now can produce
that body, the Israel Gov-
ernment would hasten to
explore every avenue of
cooperation with it. The
fact is that no such Pales-
tinian body currently
exists, nor is it likely to
surface if the settlement
policy is terminated.
American friends of the
Peace Now movement
should seriously reflect
upon the divisive and de-
featist effect of their pro-
nouncements. Israel and its
American friends have
nothing to apologize for.

AJCongress Intervenes
on Behalf of Jewish Activist

NEW YORK — The
American Jewish Congress
has called on the Reverend
William Sloane Coffin to
withdraw charges of tres-
passing against a Jewish
activist who peacefully
sought admission to a public
hearing at the Riverside
Church on June 15 ad-
dressed by Mohammed
Milhilm, former mayor of
Halhoul.
In a letter to Rev. Coffin,
Harriet Pilpel, co-chair of
the Commission on Law and
Societ Action of the AJCon-
gress, declared:
"Your church recently
hosted a gathering, spon-
sored by the Palestine Sol-
idarity Committee, at
which Mohammed Milhelm
formerly the Mayor of
Halhoul on the West Bank,
spoke about the rights of
Palestinians. The public
was invited by posters dis-
played prominently around
the city to attend this meet-
ing.
"Apparently, however,
the invitation to the pub-
lic did not extend to those

BB Museum
Receives Grant
for Expansion

WASHINGTON — The
National Endowment of the
Humanities has awarded a
$175,000 grant to the Bnai
Brith Klutznick Museum
for a project to expand and
modernize the display of
Bnai Brith's permanent col-
lection of Jewish ceremo-
nial and folk art.
Sheldon S. Cohen, chair-
man of the Bnai Brith
Museum and Arts Commit-
tee, said the funds will be
used for construction of ex-
hibit space to present the
permanent collection ac-
cording to festival and life
cycle.

Jews who were thought
likely to challenge some
of Mr. Wilhelm's views.
When Tuvya Gross,
whom we represent,
peacefully attempted to
attend the meeting, he
was denied admittance to
the church because those
at the door suspected
that he was Jewish, and
asked to leave.
"When he refused to do so,
again peacefully, he was ar-
rested and charged with
trespassing. Representa-
tives of the church, present
at the arrest, not only re-
fused to defend Mr. Gross'
right to attend the meeting,
but refused to intervene to
prevent his arrest."

About one-third of Is-
rael's Jewish population is
considered strictly reli-
gious, while about half the
Jewish population observe
some of the religious tradi-
tions.
