Each organization will
benefit from its own sales -ef-

State Department OK's
Sale to Iraq, Not Baghdad

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Without giving explicit rea-
sons, the State Department
confirmed today that while
it has allowed the sale of
eight Marine engines to out-
fit warships for Iraq, it has
blocked the sale of five Boe-
ing aircraft designed for
civilian passenger use by
the government of
Baghdad.
When State Department
Spokesman John Trattner
was asked about this "terri-
bly perplexing" situation,
where the U.S. approves a
military contract but sup-
presses a civilian sale, he
replied that the two matters
were made "on the basis of
determination" in the de-
partment.

Congressional critics
hailed the decision against
the sale of the Boeings as a
major victory. Rep. Milli-
cent Fenwick (R-N.J.) and
Sen. Richard Stone (D.-Fla.)
led the efforts to stop the
sale. These Boeings can be
converted into military
transports. The engines for
the warships were sold to
Italy which has the contract
to build four frieghters for
Iraq. While the Carter Ad-
ministration has softened
its position against Iraq in
recent months, Iraq is still
identified as a "terrorist na-
tion."

Leon Dulzin
Lauds HIAS

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Amid reports here that the
Jewish Agency and HIAS
have reached an under-
standing on the vexed 'prob-
lem of the Soviet "noshrim"
(dropouts), Leon Dulzin,
Jewish Agency Executive
chairman, this week pub-
lished a warmly laudatory
cable he had sent to HIAS
president Edwin Shapiro.
"I look forward," Dulzin
wrote, "to even closer col
aboration between. us" (on
the Soviet Jewry issue).

swer and a further ap-
peal to the Israel gov-
ernment.
As examples of the kind of
allegations which Israeli
authorities have been un-
able to refute, the
memorandum cites four
"typical testimonies." In
them, former prisoners tes-
tified to various kinds of ill-
treatment, including being

repeatedly beaten or kicked
and in a number of cases
being forced to stand for
days at a time, sometimes
tied to a water pipe. Pris-
oners said the aim was to
force them to make confes-
sions demanded by their in-
terrogators.
Amnesty International
said it "was not able to judge
the facts in these particular
cases," but was citing them
as typical of persistent com-
plaints to which the Israeli

Our founders were imbued

Arab Terrorist
Gang Uncovered

TEL AVIV (JTA) — An
army spokesman an-
nounced last week that an
Arab terrorist gang had
been uncovered in Nablus.
The gang was responsible
for planting two lethal
bombs in the Carmel mar-
ket two years ago and last
year which caused fatalities
and scores of injuries to
shoppers and may have
played a part in an Aug. 25
incident at the market in
which a bomb was dis-
covered and dismantled be-
fore it could explode„
According to reliable
sources, the man who placed
the bombs is among Mose
the security forces rounded
up in Nablus. The terrorist
cell there is part of the El
Fatah, it was reported. The
first bomb, in August 1978,
killed one person and in-
jured 50. The second bomb,
in April 1979, killed two
persons and injured 29.

provide any convincing an-

As background to its
recommendations, Am-

For all those times you wish you could be there—but you're here—
pick up the phone and share your feelings.
DIAL DIRECT. If your area has International Dialing, you can tell it to
Tel Aviv as easy as dialing:

INTERNATIONAL COUNTRY
ACCESS CODE
CODE
011 + 972

CITY
CODE

+ 3 + LOCAL NUMBER
That love and closeness are so important. And so affordable.
Just think, you can talk 3 minutes far $7.80 when you dial direct.
So save the handy codes, and use them soon.
ALMOST DIRECT. Until your area has International Dialing, calling is
still easy and economical. On station calls not requiring special operator
assistance, you get the same low rate as dialing direct. Just tell
the Operator the country, city name and local number you want, and get
ready to wish them "hazel Toy."
P. S. Nearly everyone can dial direct to most telephones in Canada,
the Caribbean, Alaska, Hawaii and parts of Mexico—just as you dial direct
to cities inside the continental U.S.
