Reagan to End Financial Aid to Israel
for Resettlement of Jews From Russia

The Reagan Administra-
tion has decided to elimi-
nate financial assistance to
Israel for the resettlement
there- of Jewish immigrants
from the Soviet Union and
other Eastern European
countries, Rep. Jonathan
Bingham (D-N.Y.) said.
According to Bingham,
the Administration will re-
scind half of the $25 million
allocated for this purpose
for fiscal year 1981 which
ends next Sept. 30. This
would mean that funding
for the program will end on
March 31, with the expendi-
ture up to that time of $12.5
"We of course are going to
fight it," Bingham said.
Bingham and former
Sen. Edmund Muskie
(D-Me.) initiated legisla-
tion in 1972 providing for
such U.S. assistance to
Israel. In the past eight
years, from fiscal year
1973 to fiscal year 1981,
$251 million has been
appropriated of which
. $239 million will have
been provided by next
March 31.
Meanwhile, more than
500 students from some 25
campuses contacted 378 of
the 535 members of the U.S.
Senate and House with ap-
peals for continuation by
Congress of its support for
programs helpful to Soviet
In a related development,
Soviet President Leonid
Brezhnev was ready to
allow Jewish emigrants
from the Soviet Union to fly
directly from Moscow to Is-
rael, but was dissuaded by
one of his aides, it was dis-
- closed last weekend in a
radio interview with Leon
Dulzin, chairman of the
World Zionist Organization
He said that at the re-
quest of Premier Menahem
Begin, a "prominent Jewish
personality with contacts
with Brezhnev" discussed
the matter of Jewish emig-
ration with him and pro-
posed that Jews be allowed
to fly direct from the USSR
to Israel, without an inter-
mediate stop in Vienna.
According to Dulzin,

Brezhnev replied, "Why
not?" But a senior Soviet
official sitting with him
intervened and the pro-
posal and favorable re-
sponse has never been
implemented. Dulzin de-

Avital Shcharansky, wife of
prisoner of conscience
Anatoly Shcharansky, said
that she placed little cre-
dence in press reports from
South Africa that her hus-
band is to be freed shortly in
exchange for an alleged
Soviet spy, Alexei, Kozlov,
captured in South Africa
last year.
She said rumors of his re-

lease had been frequent, but
he was still in a Soviet labor
camp serving the fourth
year of a 13-year term on
charges of treason, spying
and anti-Soviet subversion.
Meanwhile, Avital has
received the first informa-
tion in weeks about her
husband from his mother,
Ida Milgrom. In a telephone
call from Moscow where
Mrs. Milgrom resides, she
told Avital that Anatoly
stated in a letter to his
brother Leonid that he
could not have any visits
from either his mother or
brother for the remainder of
1981 since all meetings
scheduled for this year have
been cancelled.
Mrs. Milgrom said that
his food allotment has

been cut in half and that
his correspondence has
been limited.
The National Conference
on Soviet Jewry reported
that Soviet police in Moscow
halted an exhibition by
eight Jewish artists by
blocking the entrance to a
private home where the ex-
hibition was being held last
Many people had already
viewed the paintings, which
consisted of about 40
abstract and symbolic re-
nderings of the Holocaust
and of Jewish life in the
Soviet Union.
Meanwhile, the number
of Jews who left the USSR
in February totaled 1,407,
the Student Struggle for
Soviet Jewry reported.

Members of the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry and the Jewish Identity

proved to be the final rally for prisoner of conscience Joseph Mendelevich. A few
days later, Mendelevich was released, and was flown to Israel.

IDF Deserters

Reverse Boycott

Israel Defense Forces are
now experiencing a phe-
nomenon unheard of in the
early years of the state —
desertion. Since the Yom
Kippur War in 1973, the
IDF has had 6,000 cases of
desertion each year.
Analysts link the des-
erters to a change in policy
after 1973. The IDF now ac-
cepts illiterates and persons
with criminal records.
Most of the deserters
come from development
towns and have police re-
cords, a report said.

A Jewish group headed by
Leonard Strelitz, a former
national United Jewish Ap-
peal chairman, has under-
taken to match any com-
mitment made by the Chris-
tian group. The Bibleland
Park, planned as a tourist
attraction, will be estab-
lished on the lines of Dis-
neyland but with the Bible
as its theme.

non-Jewish swimming pool
manufacturer in Switzer-
land has cancelled an order
placed by a Saudi Arabian
firm after its directors read
a Saudi-inspired article
about Jerusalem in a Ger-
man language magazine.
The management of the
Hartman firm wrote the
Saudi company that it sup-
ported Israel and Jerusalem
as its indivisible capital.
"We will not make deals
with sworn enemies of Is-
rael," they wrote.

More WB Land
Taken by Israel

The West Bank Military
Government is declaring
several thousand acres of
land east of Jerusalem to be
"state land" and therefore
available for the expansion
of Jewish settlements, in
this case the new town of
Maale Adumim on the
Jerusalem-Jericho road.
Military government offi-
cers have notified the
Mukhtars (heads of local
government) of two
neighboring Arab villages
of this intention. Under law,
the villagers have 21 days to
appeal in the courts against
the seizure.
The expansion of
Maale Adumim would
cut off the Arab villages
east of Jerusalem from
the Judean desert.
In recent months, the
Military Government has
declared thousands of acres
on the West Bank to be
"state land" on grounds that
it is unused and untitled.
The effect is to expand
Jewish settlements while
precluding the growth of
nearby Arab villages and
denying them use of the
land for grazing or other
