WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The development of an
agreement for a multina-
tional force and observers
(MFO) to patrol the Sinai
after Israel's final with-
drawal in April 1982 was
seen as evidence of U.S.
commitment to work for
peace in the Middle East.
But the commitment was
viewed differently by the
parties involved — the
United States, Egypt and
Israel.
This was evident at a
State Department cere-
mony Monday_ afternoon
when Secretary of State
Alexander Haig witnessed

the signing of the MFO
agreement by Israel's Am-
bassador Ephraim Evron
and Egyptian Ambassador
Ashraf Ghorbal. Haig also
signed identical letters to
the Foreign Ministers of Is-
rael and Egypt outlining
U.S. commitments to the
agreement, including pro-
viding more than 1,000
troops for the MFO and get-
ting other nations to make
up the rest of the 2,500-
member force.
Haig, noting the "pleas-
ure" the agreement has
given both President Re-
agan and himself, said the
agreement was a "reflection
of a new confidence in the
Middle East in America's
leadership, its willingness
to meet its commitments
and obligations to the peace
process."
He said a first step in
the peace process would
be moving toward the au-
tonomy talks, a step
which he said will begin
with the visits of Egyp-
tian President Anwar
Sadat this week and Is-
raeli Premier Menahem
Begin in September.
Ghorbal, in his remarks,
also called for progress
toward a Palestinian au-

13 Nazi Cases
Being Tried
in W. Germany

BONN (JTA) — Thirteen
former Nazi officials are
presently on trial in West
Germany and four more
cases are expected to go to
trial before the end of the
year, according to Adalbert
Rueckerl, head of the war
crimes investigation center
at Ludwigsburg. He said
2,251 other suspected Nazis
are under investigation.
Two of the most impor-
tant ex-Nazis now facing
trial are Gustav Richter,
who was Adolf Eichmann's
deputy in Bucharest, and
Heinz-Guenther Wisner,
accused of killing inmates of
the Riga-Kaiserwald con-
centration camp. Rueckerl
stressed that the prosecu-
tion in these cases will de-
pend heavily on witnesses.
He called on survivors whc
knew the accused to testify
in court.

Canada Pushed
on War Crimes

TORONTO (JTA) — A
delegation from the Cana -
dian Holocaust Remembr-
ance Association met with
Justice Minister John Chre-
tien and presented him with
a petition containing 30,000
names urging the govern-
ment to prosecute war crim-
inals residing in Canada
and to take action against
white supremacy groups.
A brief accompanying the
petition stated that the gov-
ernment has the legal
means to act and should im-
plement the relevant laws.
Sabina Citron, a leading
member of the Association,
said Canada is obligated
under international
treaties to prosecute war
criminals.

agan Administration's first
efforts in the Middle East,
as evidenced by the Sinai
agreement and the "cease-
fire" across the Israel-
Lebanon border, "augurs
well for the future."
Evron stressed that the
agreement signed today
was the "implementation of
President Carter's com-
mitment on this issue. We
should all remember that
the credibility of an Ameri-
can commitment, on any is-
sue, is essential to keeping
the momentum of the Camp
David accords." The Israeli
envoy stressed that the
Israeli-Egyptian peace
agreement "does not mean
Israeli withdrawals only"
but also "full normalization
and friendly relations and
cooperation between our

countries and peoples."
Meanwhile, only Fiji

willing to send troops to

ment spoke., Dean
Fischer said that the U.5•
expects to have the
"components" of the
MFO ready soon, but he
said it will not announce
individual acceptance by
countries until the entire
force is complete.
The U.S. has agreed to al-
locate $125 million for the
fiscal_year beginning Oct. 1,
to pay for the Sinai forces
and the construction costs
involved in creating the
MFO by next March. Start-
ing in the 1983 fiscal year,
Israel, Egypt and the U.S.
will each pay one-third of
the costs of MFO or $35 mid

JWV Investigating the Sale
of Philly Post to Missionaries

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Letters and telephone calls
of protest against a decision
of a Philadelphia Jewish
War Veterans post to sell its
building to a Christian mis-
sionary group has prompted
the national JWV head-
quarters in Washington to
start an investigation of the
transaction.
Harris Stone, JWV na-
tional director, confirmed
that he had received a letter
from Paul Small, a member
of the Lt. Milton Kelkey
Post No. 575 in Northeast
Philadelphia, reporting on
the projected sale of the
building to the Messiah
Missions Assembly of God.
Ed Ramov, head of the
local Jewish Defense
League, is publicly protest-
ing the projected sale. He
and several other JDL
members have been picket-
ing the Kelkey Post build-
ing daily.

Russians Smear
A. Solzhenitsyn

LONDON (JTA) — A
Russian-language publish-
ing house operating here is-
sued a long two-volume
book about Russian novelist
Alexander Solzhenitsyn
which depicts him as being
of Jewish origin and a per,
son of doubtful sexual mor-
als.
The book, "Vokrug Sol-
zhenitsyna" ("About Sol-
zhenitsyn"), is written and
published by A. Flegon,
head of the Flegon Press.
Although ostensibly cater-`
ing to anti-Soviet Russians
in the West, the lurid attack
on Solzhenitsyn, with its
blend of pornography and
anti-Jewish smears, resem-
bles some of the latest, offi-
cially inspired popular writ-
ing in the Soviet Union.
Long before Solzhenitsyn
was expelled from the
Soviet Union in 1974, the
Soviet authorities had
sought to discredit him by
anti-Jewish smears even
though he has no Jewish
ancestry.

currently, has joined
with several members in
seeking an injunction to
halt the planned sale.
Confirming that the rea-
son given for sale of the
building is high mainte-
nance costs, he asked
whether it was wise to
sell one place and buy
another likely to have
comparable s mainte-
nance costs.
Rabbi Gil Marks, associ-
ate director of interreligious
concerns at the Philadel-
phia Jewish Community
Relations Council, said the
propsective purchaser is a
"Hebrew-Christian" group
involved in "unethical"
methods of missionizing.
Rev. Mark Alterman,
spiritual leader of Messiah
Missions Assembly of God,
denied that charge and said
his group was interested in
saving all people, not just
Jews.

U.S. Files
Nazi Case

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The U.S. government has
charged in Federal District
Court in Newark, N.J. that
65-year-old Juoza Kungys
had falsified information in
his visa and citizenship ap-
plications to conceal his
participation with German
forces in the firing squad
murders of 2,000 Jews near
the village of Kedainiai
around August 1941.
The complaint against
Kungys, a Clifton, N.J. de-
ntist, also said that he had
not revealed that around
July 1941 he participated in
the killing of approximately
100 unarmed civilians near
Babences, Lithuania.
Kungys vehemently de-
nied the charges to report-
ers last week, adding, "This
is slander — it's the Rus-
sians who are doing this."
He said he knew of no mass
slayings.

A real patriot is the fellow
who gets a parking ticket
and rejoices that the system
works.
