Polish Anti-Semitism a Prelude
to Repetition of Czechoslovakia?

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
A lecturer at Warsaw Uni-
versity believes that the
anti-Zionist campaign
being conducted in Poland
is an attempt `.`to legitimize
Soviet intervention" in that
troubled nation.
Pawel Spiewak, who is
also a member of the edito-
rial staff of Wiez, a promi-
nent Catholic publication in
Poland, reminded a Bnai
Brith audience last week
that the Soviets conducted a
similar campaign before in-
vading Czechoslovakia in
the 1960s.
Spiewak, in the U.S. on a
six-week visit under the
sponsorship of the Interna-
tional Communications
Agency, said that the anti-
Semitic posters placed
around Warsaw recently
were the work of the secret
police. He explained that al-
though there are only about
7,000 Jews remaining in Po-
land, some are members of
the labor group, Solidarity,
which the government
seeks to discredit.
"Many people in Po-
land think that Jews are
responsible for the estab-
lishment of Communist
rule in Poland," Spiewak
said. "Many Communists
were Jews and many
Jews were in 'the secret
pOlice" in the Stalinist era.
So now (some Polish
people) want to say the
responsibility for all the

Spiewak added that the
Poles can speak freely today
and that "it is very impor-
tant to discuss" anti-
Semitism in terms of under-
standing and coming to
grips with their past and to
avoid making Jews the
scapegoat again.

crimes of the Stalinist
period is with the Jews.
They want to say that the
Communist Party is not
responsible, mainly
Jews, by some Jewish
plot."
Spiewak said that until
recently there were rio re-
corded accounts of anti-
Semitism in Poland and
that most Poles did not
know that it existed. The
Holocaust was written in
terms of Poles being killed,
he explained. The new wave
of anti-Semitism is "espe-
cially troublesome because
the Jewish community
doesn't exist in Poland," he
declared.

He said that an effort to
thwart that likelihood i
volves a number of Cathol.
intellectuals who are writ-
ing books and other publica-
tions about anti-Semitism
in their country. In addi-
tion, he said, they are pub-
licizing cultural activities of
Polish Jews prior to World
War II.

U.S. Defends Cable to Syria

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The White House and the
State Department continue
to assert that the cable sent
by President Reagan to
President Hafez Assad of
Syria two weeks ago did not
reflect any change in U.S.
Middle East policy and was
not meant to soften the
criticism of Syria's military.
actions in Lebanon voiced
by Secretary of State Ale-
xander Haig when he vis-
ited Israel as part of his
Mideast tour.
A White House spokes-
man told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that the
cable was nothing more
than a normal message sent

by the President to another
head of state on the occasion
of that country's National
Day of Independence. Syria
observed its Independence
Day on April 16.

Reagan's cable noted that
"central role the Syrian
people and their leaders can
play, not only in the service
of their own nation and its
independence but in the
search for a just Middle East
peace . ." It expressed
Reagan's strong hope that
the two countries could
work together during the
next year in search of
"peace, justice and security"
in the -Middle East, the
White House said.
