Implications Seen in Arab
Mayor's Snub of Anderson

WASHINGTON (JTA)
— Bethlehem Arab Mayor
Elias Freij's refusal to meet
Congressman John Ander-
son during his four-day visit
to Israel this month is seen
here as casting political im-
plications far beyond the
West Bank as the president-
ial election campaign ad-
vances.
Freij spurned an inter-
view requested for Ander-
son, the first candidate to
visit Israel during a
presidential campaign. A
wily politician touted as a
moderate Arab, Freij
charged Anderson with
being "prejudiced" for Israel
and "against Arab inter-
ests" although Anderson
has not yet said anything
that President Carter or
former Governor Ronald
Reagan has not espoused or
could not generally declare
as their own views towards
Israel, its neighbors and the

The Freij snub followed
two unique developments in
Washington. One was the
Carter-Mondale Campaign
Committee's appointment
of Richard Shadyac, a
Washington lawyer, to head
the Arab-American Com-
mittee to reelect Carter and
Vice President Walter
Mondale. Never before have
U.S. citizens of Arab des-
cent been established as a
minority group with politi-
cal influence.
Another development
was the reaction to
Shadyac by the Ameri-
can Lebanese League's
head, Robert Basil, a
physicist and former
Pentagon official who
was graduated from West
Point. Basil charged
Shadyac had distorted
facts about Americans of
Middle East origin and
the importance of his
organization with which,
Basil said, he will have no
part whatever.
Shadyac, who is a Maro-
nite Christian and whose
father is Lebanese, formerly
was president of the Na-
tional Association of
Arab-Americans (NAAA),
whose leaders have been in
the fore-front against Israel
and supportive of the Arab
states opposed to the Camp
David agreements.

LOS ANGELES (JTA) —
Max Kampelman, the co-
chairman of the Committee
on Security and Coopera-
tion in Europe, has prom-
ised that Soviet Jewry will
be on the American delega-
tion's agenda at the Madrid
Conference in November
where the Helsinki Accords
will be reviewed.
Kampelman, a Washing-
ton attorney who was re-
cently appointed to his post
by President Carter, told a
regional meeting of the
Committee at UCLA:
"We intend to emphasize
human rights and we intend
to name names. This means
naming the names of coun-
tries that, in our opinion,
have violated the Helsinki
Accords. It also means nam-
ing the victims of Soviet op-
pression." Former U.S. At-
torney General Griffin Bell
will chair the U.S. delega-
tion to the Madrid meeting.
Signed by 35 nations,
the Helsinki Accords rest
on a number of principles
including the inviolabil-
ity of national borders,
the sovereign equality of
nations, free exchange of
information, and the
right of individuals to
leave the countries of
their births. Built into the
Accords were a series of
follow-up meetings to
evaluate their implemen-

Passion Play

BONN (JTA) — The 1980
Passion Play at Oberam-
mergau has become West
Germany's run-away hit
this summer, a windfall for
ticket scalpers and black
marketeers and an appar-
ent vindication of Oberam-
mergau's Mayor Ernst
Zwink who opposed changes
in the text to remove anti-
Semitic material on
grounds that the play in its
present form was a commer-
cial success.

LONDON — A recent
immigrant to Russia from
Czechoslovakia told the In-
ternational Council of Jews
from Czechoslovakia that
the Communist country has
been increasingly exporting
arms and ideology" to the
Arab world.
The immigrant said arms

in Belgrade, Yugoslavia
in 1977.
The Los Angeles meeting
was one of a series of
regional conferences Kam-
pelman is attending seek-
ing input from various
groups with interests in the
Accords' implementation. It
was attended by represen-
tatives of the Commission
on Soviet Jewry of Jewish
Federation Council's Com-
munity Relations Commit-
tee, the Women's Campaign
for Soviet Jewry-35's, and
the Concerned Lawyers
Committee for Soviet
Jewry.
Meanwhile, the Anti-
Defamation League, of Bnai
Brith has prepared three
newspaper advertisements
protesting the Moscow
Olympic games.
The ads, which were
created by the ADL's Ad-
vertising Task Force, will
appear in local newspapers
throughout the country for
the duration of the games,
which began last Saturday.
In a related develop-
ment, Grigory Geishus of
Leningrad was arrested
by Soviet authorities last
week and charged with
"evasion of military serv-
ice."
According to the Student
Struggle for Soviet Jewry,
Geishus, who applied for
permission to emigrate
nearly two years ago, is
being held in Leningrad's
Kresty Isolation Prison.

forced homosexual rela-
tions and would regard
such relations with chil-
dren or youths as rape,
punishable by up to 20
years imprisonment.
Burg, a leauer of the Na-
tional Religious Party, said
his objections were on moral
and social rather than reli-
gious grounds. He said the
existing law should remain
in force, even if not invoked,

as a deterrent and to uphold
the social norm. He claimed
that if the bill was passed
"Israel would become a
world center for homosexu-
als."
