NEW YORK (JTA) —
The Leadership Conference
of National Jewish
Women's Organizations
said in a message to
President Carter that it was
"deeply gratified" that the
U.S. had voted against a
resolution in the Third
Committee of the United
Nations General Assembly
endorsing the "Program of
Action" adopted at the
world conference of the
United Nations Decade for
Women in Copenhagen last
July.
There had been reports
earlier that the U.S. was
under pressure to reverse
its rejection of the program
when it comes before the
UN General Assembly for
official adoption.
Despite the many positive
aspects of the program, the
U.S. along with Canada,
Australia and Israel voted
against it in Copenhagen
for its equation of Zionism
with racism and its

legitimization of the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion. The program calls for
the eradication of the
"evils" of Zionism, racism,
imperialism and neo-
colonialism, and for eco-
nomic assistance to Palesti-
nian women inside and out-
side territories occupied by
Israel in cooperation and
consultation with the PLO.
In a letter to the White
House, Leona Chanin,
chairwoman of the Lead-
ership Conference, de-
clared that in Copenha-
gen the U.S. "properly
opposed the action pro-
gram because it reflected
the infamous Zionism-is-
racism equation adopted
by the General Assembly

five years ago this month.
The cynical politicization
and flagrant abuse of
United Nations agencies
and conferences by the
Arab-Soviet-Third World
bloc in behalf of th ter-
rorist PLO continues to
erode the already di-
minishing credibility of
the United Nations sys-
tem.

"We commend you foi r
Administration's leads
ship role in opposing this
latest abuse of the United
Nations and for recognizing
that the true needs of
women are subverted by the
effort to exploit the United
Nations Decade for Women
for partisan purposes."

Next Narrow No-Confidence
Vote May See Begin Resign

, JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Premier Menahem Begin
would be inclined to resign
and call early elections if his
government is once again
reduced to a slender major-
ity of three, as happened
when it barely survived a
no-confidence vote in the
Knesset last week.
This was made clear by a
source close to Begin follow-
ing the 57-54 vote on mo-
tions of no-confidence in the
government's economic
policies.
The source said Begin
would have resigned had
the vote been tied, even
though there would have
been no strict necessity for
him to do so. Similarly, he
would consider his position
untenable if a future no-
confidence motion results
once again in his govern-
ment being saved by the
tiny breakaway factions, as
was the case last week.
The government was
saved, in effect, by the
last minute decision of
two members of the
three-member Ahva fac-
tion, a split off from the
Democratic Movement
for Change, not to vote
against the government,
and a similar move by in-
dependent Knesseter
Shmuel Flatto-Sharon.
There were recrimina-
tions after the vote in coali-
tion ranks after the vote
against the failure of the co-
alition whips in recent
weeks to woo the Ahva
members. Coalition sources
said there would be an as-
siduous effort to "talk to"
Ahva and make certain it
voted with the government
in any future test of
strength.
The Ahva faction com-
prises three distinct per-
sonalities: insurance mil-
lionaire Shlomo Eliahu,
who voted against the gov-
ernment; Shawfiq Assad,
who at the very last minute
mysteriously absented him-
self from the Knesset
chamber; and Akiva Nof,
who decided at the last
minute to abstain.
Eliahu, Ahva's chairman,
said he had no explanation
frIr A QQa /Ts hPha vim'. after

the three faction members
decided unanimously to
vote against the govern-
ment.
Meanwhile, the Labor
Party opposition is pre-
paring to topple Begin's
government. Shimon
Peres, the party's leader,
said that it is urgent to
bring Israel 'back under
proper economic man-
agement." He stated that
"we intend to introduce a
planned economy, an
economy where work is
as profitable as specula-
tion."
Peres added that, for his
own part, he will do every-
thing in his power to build
on last week's relative suc-
cess by harassing the gov-
ernment with no-confidence
motions at every opportu-
nity.
Some observers believe
that next month's inflation
figures, expected to be as
high as this month's be-
cause the oil price hike will
make itself felt, would pre-
sent an appropriate basis
for the opposition to try..
again.

Schmidt Visits
Baeck Institute

NEW YORK — West
German Chancellor Helmut
Schmidt paid tribute to the
accomplishments of Ger-
man Jews last week with a
visit to the Leo Baeck Insti-
tute.
The institute, which has
been visited by two IF
German presidents, (Th.
dore Heuss in 1958 and
Walter Schell in 1978) but
never before by a chancel-
lor, serves as a repository of
research material on
German-speaking Jews.
The Baeck Institute has sis-
ter institutions in London
and Jerusalem and includes
a library of some 60,000
volumes and several
hundred thousand docu-
ments.
Gruenewald,
Max
president of the institute,
presented the West German
leader with two publica-
tions produced by the insti-
t ute.
