Defamation League of Bnai
Brith by an extremist polit-
ical organization and up-
held ADL's right to label the
group "anti-Semitic."
Judge Michael Dontzin
granted ADL summary
judgment and dismissed the
lawsuit filed by the U.S.
Labor Party in April 1979.
The suit, following ADL's
denunciation of the anti-
Jewish philosophies and
associations of the USLP
and its leader, Lyndon
LaRouche, charged the
ADL with defamation, in-
vasion of privacy and as-
sault.
Seymour Reich, chair-
man of ADL's National
Civil Rights Committee,
said Judge Dontzin agreed
with ADL's position that
USLP spokesmen were pub-
lic figures whose positions
were openly disseminated.
The court said that "by cal-
ling attention to them-
selves," LaRouche and his
associates had "exposed
themselves to challenge,
and even to ridicule or de-
nunciation.'
Dontzin, in a 22-page
opinion, said that ADL's
characterization of the
USLP as anti-Semitic
constitutes "fair com-
ment" in view of the
group's "highly critical
views about prominent
Jewish figures, families
and organizations such
as ADL and Bnai Brith."

Taking note also of the
USLP's linking of Jews and
Jewish organizations with
Nazism, fascism, the inter-
national drugs trade "and a
myriad of purported con-
spiracies," Dontzin con-
cluded "the facts of this case
reasonably give rise to an
inference upon which the
ADL can form an honest
opinion that the plaintiffs
(USLP) are anti-Semitic."
In upholding continued
ADL vigilance against
anti-Semitism and other
forms of bigotry, the judge
observed that "ADL did no
more than act in accordance
with its historic and organ-
izational purpose; that is, to
express its opinion and con-
cerns when anti-Semitism
appeared and to identify
and confront it as such."
In light of the Holocaust,
as well as the history of
anti-Semitism, according to
the judge, "it was reason-
able to point out what it
(ADL) perceived to be anti-
Semitic overtones" in USLP
pronouncements.
In commenting on the de-
cision, Reich said that ADL
"will pursue what the court
referred to as the League's
`historic and organizational
purpose' of identifying and
confronting anti-Semitism,
and it will continue to
monitor the activities of the
LaRouche groups and all
other organizations which
indulge in such activity."

Neo-Nazi Rally Protested

BONN (JTA) — West
German authorities are
being urged to ban the con-
vention of the neo-Nazi Na-
tional Democratic Party
(NPD) scheduled to be held
in Augsburg Nov. 22. Scores
of trade unions, public offi-
cials and organizations of
Holocaust survivors have
joined the call, warning that
the convention-will arouse a
wave of protests and anti-
Nazi demonstrations in that
south German city.
The attitude of tolerance
of the neo-Nazi movement
in West Germany was shar-
ply attacked at a meeting in
Augsburg of a national
trade union representing
workers in the printing in-
dustry.
The umbrella organiza-
tion of trade unions in the
Federal Republic, DGB, and
Augsburg's Mayor Hans
Breuer called on the public
to participate in an Anti-
Fascist Action Week being
organized to coincide with
the NPD convention. It will
be highlighted by a mass
demonstration against
neo-Nazi activities.
Meanwhile, Interior
Minister Gerhard Baum
said in an interview in the
mass circulation news-
paper Bild that anti-
Semitic violence is on the
rise. He cited the recent
desecration of the Jewish
cemetery in Frankfurt,

the city with Germany's
second largest Jewish
community, where van-
dals splashed paint and
scrawled anti-Semitic
slogans on gravestones.
Baum observed that
while the number of neo-
Nazis is small, their readi-
ness to commit violent acts
has increased dramatically.
He suggested as one re-
medy that the Hitler era
should be discussed in Ger-
man schools much more in-
tensively and thoroughly.

Israel Honors
Costa Rican

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Costa Rica's envoy to the
United Nations in the late
1940s, Ricardo Fournier,
played a key role in helping
the Zionist movement win a
majority for sovereignty.
His memory was honored
by the Jewish National
Fund in a ceremony at the
Peace Forest near
Jerusalem, attended by
Costa Rican Ambassador
Ronald Fernandez-Pinto
and senior Foreign Ministry
and JNF officials. Four-
nier's daughter spoke of her
father's love of the Zionist
cause, and planted a tree in
his memory.

Be the master of your
will, and the slave of your
conscience.
