home, but when they asked
where his wife lived and he
replied Brooklyn, "They
said she should be in Tel
Aviv and they called me a
dirty Zionist," he was
quoted as saying.
While at the U.S. military
hospital in Weisbaden, the
three hostages were greeted
by U.S. Air Force chaplain

flew in from Ramstein
Force Base. He gave
them Jewish Welfare Board

the Peace Corps in Iran in
the 1960s. The Iranian
militants had referred to
him as "a famous spy and

Knesset OKs
Plane Purchase

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The
Knesset Finance Commit-
tee has approved the gov-
ernment purchase of six
new Boeing aircraft — four
767s and two 737s with four
spare Pratt and Whitney
engines — for a total of $260
million.
The planes were origi-
nally ordered by El Al, but
the government refused to
help with financing until
the airline overcame its fi-
nancial and personnel prob-
lems which have brought it
to the verge of forced clo-
sure.
The aircraft will be held
by the government after de-
livery begins in 1982,
handing them over to El Al
only after the government's
conditions have been met.
The government stands no
chance of financial loss by
e purchase as the aircraft,
hich use less fuel than
aircraft presently in use,
are in brisk demand
throughout the world.

as a dangerous precedent
for other would-be kidnap-

governments," he said.
Merari said that for the
past five or six years there
had been a decline in the in-.
cidence of hijacking, mainly
because countries refused to
grant asylum to the hijac-
kers from fear of interna-

He said the Iranian gov-

the seizure and holding of
the hostages, had succeeded
in its operation "or at least
had escaped • without
