During the Moscow
Olympic Games, Newsweek
sports columnist Pete Ax-
thelm found time to visit the
home. of Soviet refusnik
Mikhail Kremin.
Kremin, according to Ax-
thelm, has been trying to
join his parents in Israel for
nearly seven years. Al-
though his father is now
dead, Kremin keeps push-
ing to emigrate so that his
sons, Sasha, 15, and Genya,
10, will not have to serve in
the army.
• The following are some of
Axthelm's observations:
"The Olympics have
not been a good thing for
the refusniks. For one
thing, Soviet visa officials
have been so preoccu-
pied with processing
Olympic visitors that the
issuing of visas to
would-be emigres has
virtually ground to a halt.
"Last year, Jewish emig-
ration reached( a peak of
50,000. This month the
number is likely to fall
below 1,000. And in a par-
ticularly cruel insult, the
Soviets last week welcomed
Palestine Liberation
Organization leader Yasir
Arafat. Eight years after 11
Israelis were murdered at
Munich by Black Sep-
tember, the Arab 'terrorist
group condoned if not di-
rectly sanctioned by Arafat,
he was even' invited to tour
the village.
'A bandit state welcom-
ing a bandit terrorist,' said
Kremin, it saddens me but
it does not surprise me.'
"Mikhail ,himself has
served two 15-day jail terms
. . . The second time oc-
curred two years ago, when
Mikhail's wife, Galena took
Sasha (his daughter) to a
`mother's and children's'
"Mikhail soon received
word that both might be
sent to Lubyanka prison.
He rushed out to try and-
help, only to be met by
A KGB agents who told him
to stay home until further

back upstairs and unfurled

placed his tape deck in the

"Kremin is a quiet man.
He speaks haltingly in

High Court Asks
for Explanation
in 'Objector' Case

Israel's Supreme Court has
given the Defense Ministry
one week to explain why a
soldier who is a conscien-
tious objector was ordered to
serve beyond Israel's "green
An attorney for Gadi El-
gazi, a member of Rakah,
told the court that his client
had made his conscientious
objector's status clear before
he enlisted and said he
would be willing to serve
within Israel's pre-June
1967 borders but not beyond
them. Elgazi's attorney said
that such requests were
granted in the past in the
cases of conscientious objec-
tors but that his client was
turned down.

Lansky Seeks to Visit Israel

The Israeli Supreme Court
has given the Interior
Ministry 30 days to explain
why it has refused to grant a
tourist visa to Meyer
Lansky. The 80-year-old
Lansky appealed to the
court to help him obtain a
one-month visa, claiming
that two months ago Inter-
ior Minister Yosef Burg had
agreed to a visa but then re-
versed himself.
Lansky was in Israel 10
years ago but was deported
after several months be-
cause of his reputed associa-
tion with organized crime in
the United States.
His deportation followed
requests by the American
government. He was sought
by U.S. authorities for al-
leged tax evasion. His ap-

peal against the deportation
was rejected and the Inter-
ior Ministry refused to
allow him to return, even
for a visit.
Lansky's attorney told
the court Aug. 5 that his
client "is an old Jew, suf-
fering from cancer and
other serious ailments.
He has a strong Jewish
conscience and would
like with all his heart to
visit Israel before his
The attorney also said
that it was inconceivable
that a one-month visit could
cause harm to the state or to
the public welfare of Israel.

According to the Bible,
Jews are to think about the
Torah every waking mo-
ment. ,

Adding Bitter to Bitter


Adding bitter to bitter
God sweetened the waters of Marah
With a branch of the bitter laurel tree
And saved our people
From dying of thirst irk the desert.
Is this the divine formula
For our redemption?
If so, let our heroes and martyrs
Wear crowns of laurel
In token of ambiguous victory
In Roman Games.
When the bloody games are over
And the Messiah comes
Bitter will turn sweet
And the Torah will be
Our everlasting crown.

Dayan to Star in BBC Series


(World Zionist Press)

Moshe Dayan is a born ac-
tor, says Roy Davis, director
of the new BBC documen-
tary series in which Dayan
stars, along with Israel. "He
will go through a scene as
many times as is necessary
to get it right," said the
British born director.
The series will be named
"Living with the Bible,"
after Dayan's book of the
same name. It will be in
three parts, each one hour
long. The series tells Day-, winter.

Similarly, when Dayan

founded in 1921 by a group

The second part is Dayan

politics of Dayan, and his
comments on relations with
the Arabs."
