Terrorist Activity in Isr6e1
Increases in Raid Reprisal

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Ter-
rorists are stepping up their
activities in what is seen as
an effort "to save face" after
the Israeli raids on their
strongholds in south Leba-
non last week.
A disaster was averted
here Monday when a bomb
was discovered on top of a
vendor's cart in the main

fruit and vegetable market
just off Allenby Street, the
city's main thoroughfare.
Local workers who dis-
covered a suspicious-
looking object called the
police and a police sapper
dismantled the bomb before
it could go off.
Meanwhile, the Israeli
who was killed Sunday by a
bomb explosion at a
gasoline service station just
off the main Jerusalem-Tel
Aviv highway near Kibutz
Neve Ilan and the Arab vil-
lage of Abu Gosh was iden-
tified as Aharon Ephraim
from Nahariya, the father of
three small children, who
happened to be in the sta-
tion when the bomb
exploded.
About 12 persons,
seven of them foreign
tourists, were injured in
Sunday's incident.
The bomb was placed in a
garbage can between two
fuel pumps and it went off as
vehicles were lined up at the
pump waiting for service.
Some 200 American and
Spanish tourists, from sev-
eral tour buses, were mil-
ling around the station at
the time of the explosion.
Miraculously, the large
underground gasoline
tanks did not explode.
Those injured had
shrapnel woulds or
burns from the blast and
the fire it caused.
In another incident, a
bomb was discovered in a
park in Herzliya but dis-
mantled before it could
explode. Also, a born', went
off at a soldier's hitch-hike
station on the Tel Aviv-
Jerusalem highway.

Carter Greets Jewish Group,
Republicans Woo Rabbis

By JOSEPH POLAKOFF

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Responding to invitations
from President Carter, 20
Jewish citizens met with
him and Vice President
Walter Mondale at the
White House for almost an
hour Tuesday and later sev-
eral told reporters they
were endorsing the
president for re-election.
(Detroiters attending the
session included Rabbis
Richard Hertz and Irwin
Groner, and George Zeltzer,
Paul Zuckerman and
Robert Nederlander. After
the meeting, Zeltzer and
Zuckerman were among
those who said they would
work actively for President
Carter's re-election.)
The gathering reportedly
is one of several being ar-
ranged by the White House
to bolster support within
the Jewish community for
the Carter-Mondale ticket.
Among those who spoke
with reporters were Howard
Gittis and William Batoff,
both of Philadelphia; Sig-
mund Strochiltz of New
London, Conn., and David
Chase of West Hartford,
Conn.
Batoff said he has "no
idea" why he was invited,
but he denied that the
White House intention
was to circumvent the
leadership of the or-
ganized Jewish commu-
nity. "I believe they in-
vited people who are
strong in their com-
munities and interested
in the Jewish relation-
ship with the President
and we would like it to
continue," he said.
Asked if the "traditional
Jewish leaders" would back
the President, Batoff re-
plied, "Oh, yes, quite a few
will be coming out very
shortly in support of
President Carter."
Gittis said the purpose of
the meeting was to be "filled
in by the President, Vice
President and other officials
of the Administration on
their positions which would
be of interest to the Jewish
community, which they did
very effectively, very intel-
ligently."
Gittis said he was not
affiliated with an organiza-
tion and was not a spokes-
man but came as an indi-
vidual. Asked if he endorsed
the President, he replied,
"most of us here_ endorsed
the President before this"
and are "actively working
for his re-election which is
important to the American
Jewish community."
Strochlitz said that "we
were very upset" about
the United States absten-
tion on the United Na-
tions Security Council
resolution last Wednes-
day against Israel's
Jerusalem law. "The
United States should not
have abstained, but vet-
oed it," he said. "This is
the first time the United
States accepted some
kind of punishment for
Israel. President Carter
explained it. I am not at

liberty to explain how he
explained it."
Batoff then said Carter's
explanation for the absten-
tion was that "an undivided
Jerusalem was exactly
what the Camp David Ac-
cord had suggested and the
President felt he was in
keeping with that accord."
He said he was "absolutely,
totally satisfied" with the
President's explanation.
When a reporter asked
"why the Jewish people
were supporting President
Carter when the govern-
ment of Israel makes clear
this Administration is not a-
friend of Israel," Batoff
noted that Israeli Premier
Menahem Begin had "al-
luded" to the abstention but
"it was not a statement. He
expected a veto and instead
he got an abstention."
Chase said "20 doubtful
people with reservations
came to see the President
this morning and we are
leaving 20 very satisfied
and happy people. This Ad-
ministration is doing a
great job for me as an
American and for me of
religious belief, being
Jewish." He said "many

Jewish people do not under-
stand the true policy of this
Administration and the
dedication of this Adminis-
tration to Jews and Israel."
In New York, members
of national Republican
Party headed by its
Presidential standard
bearer Ronald Reagan*
and his Vice Presidential
running mate George
Bush met Wednesday for
a discussion-reception
with many prominent
rabbis from across the
country.
Rabbi Seymour Siegel of
the Jewish Theological
Seminary of America said
the rabbis are gathering in
New York for a series of
leadership meetings. It was
suggested by Siegel and a
member of the advisory
committee of the Reagan-
Bush organization to invite
the rabbis and the
Reagan-Bush national
leadership group to share in
these discussions.
The national Reagan-
Bush leadership at the
meeting included Max
Fisher, Richard Rosenbaum
and Maxwell Raab, Siegel.

NY 'Jewish' Senate Seat
Remark by Carey Criticized

NEW YORK — Bess
Myerson and the other can-
didates seeking the Demo-
cratic Senate nomination in
New York criticized Gover-
nor Carey this week for say-
ing that he regarded the
post held by Senator Jacob
K. Javits as "a Jewish seat."
Miss Myerson said, "I
think that if you went along
with that reasoning you
would have to say it was
also a male seat and there-
fore I should not be running
at all."
The Anti-Defamation
League of Bnai Brith also
took exception to the idea of
"a Jewish seat."
Senator Daniel Patrick
Moynihan, who has
endorsed Miss Myerson,
said: "This is a New York
seat and everybody
knows that."
Gov. Carey had men-
tioned the post as a
"Jewish seat" on Saturday
in an interview while
reiterating his support for
Miss Myerson, who is
Jewish.
Senator Javits and his
predecessor, Herbert H.
Lehman, were both Jewish,
though their immediate
predecessors — John Foster
Dulles and Robert F.
Wagner — were not.
In that interview, Carey
said, "You might recall that
I said some time back, not as

Israel Downs
Syrian MIG

TEL AVIV (JTA) — A Sy-
rian MIG 21 was downed
Sunday in an air battle be-
tween Israeli and Syrian
planes over south Lebanon.
An Israeli army spokes-

were on a routine recon-
naissance flight over south
Lebanon when they
encountered Syrian planes
which tried to intercept the
Israelis. All Israeli planes
returned safely to their
base, the spokesman said.
