Aguda Leadership
Challenges the UN

UNITED NATIONS —
"Jews the world over re-
main united in their con-
cern for the security of Is-
rael and the welfare of Jews
in lands of peril, despite any
ideological issues which di-
vide them," was the central
theme of a leadership mis-
sion of Agudath Israel of
America at United Nations
headquarters in New York
last week.
The tone for the unprece-
dented dialogue session of
Orthodox Jewish leaders
with UN officials was set by
Rabbi Moshe Sherer,
president of Agudath Israel
of America and chairman of
the Agudath Israel World
Organization, who intro-
duced the 125 Orthodox
Jewish leaders from 10
states to Secretary General
Kurt Waldheim and other
UN officers. He said the
goal of the mission was "to
see and be seen and to hear
and be heard."
Rabbi Sherer said that
Agudath Israel's "intensive
involvement on behalf of
Jews internationally made
the dialogue with UN offi-
cials essential, especially
since the views of Orthodox
Jews are so often misun-
derstood." He told the UN
officials, "Please do not mis-
interpret the fact that
Agudath Israel has basic
ideological disagreements
with the Israeli govern-
ment; on the safety and se-
curity of Israel, we are
united and speak with one
voice with all of the Jewish

people."

Speaking to the group
in the United Nation's
Economic and Social-
Council chamber, the
Secretary General rec-
ognized Agudath Israel's
33-year membership as a
non-governmental
member of the interna-
tional body. Dr. Wal-
dheim mentioned the
Holocaust as a reason for
the UN's existence which
prompted one of the
delegates to wonder why
the UN does not give any
recognition to
memorializing the tragic
events of less than four
decades ago.
The Secretary's discus-
sion of UN successes in
human rights was also chal-
lenged by the Agudath Is-
rael delegation. One delgate

quhart, for special political
affairs, who discussed UN
Middle East policy.

Joining in the criticism of
the UN was Ambassador
Charles M. Lichenstein, the
alternate U.S. representa-
tive, who said that the world
body "instead of putting out
fires, often helps fuel them."
Representing Ambassador
Jeane Kirkpatrick who par-
ticipated in the Washington
talks with Prime Minister
Begin, Lichenstein spoke of
the "special friendship be-
tween the US. and Israel."
Several Agudath Israel
representatives chal-
lenged the "effectiveness
of the UN peace forces"
stressing that they were
there at the whim of the
Arab countries. Their in-
ability to halt PLO infilt-
ration in southern Leba-
non was cited as an
example of their inept-
ness.
Urquhart defended ac-
cusations that the UN
Secretariant was selective
in the issues it chooses to
raise, while hiding behind
so-called UN resolutions to
support its prejudices. He
also rejected contentions
that the Secretariat was not
"evenhanded" in its Middle
East policies.
The sharpest criticism of
the day was levelled by Is-
rael's permanent represen-
tative, Ambassador Yehuda

Blum. Calling UN head-
quarters "the building of
anti-Semitism," he cited
examples of blatant anti-
Semitism in recent General
Assembly debates. The Is-
raeli diplomat said, "After
the Holocaust, it still isn't
'in' to attack the Jew so in-
stead it. is 'Zionism,' but
they mean Jews."
Speaking about the up-
coming 36th session of the
General Assembly, Blum
said that Islamic, Third
World and eastern bloc na-
tions will attempt "to con-
tinue the process of de-
ligitimization of the 'Jewish
people." In response to a
question, he said that an
'Israeli withdrawal from
the UN would merely play
into the -hands of those
forces who seek to render Is-
rael illegitimate."

called UN rhetoric "pure
anti-Semitism," while an-

other asked why no UN
commission was ever ap-
pointed to investigate the
plight of Jews in Soviet
Russia and in Arab lands.
In the continued ex-
change between Waldheim
and the Orthodox Jewish
group, the Secretary Gen-
eral said that the "anti-
Semitism in the UN reflects
its existence on the world
scene." The Agudath Israel
leaders particularly
criticized the "one-sided"
justice meted out by the UN.
Waldheim was accom-
panied by both under-
secretaries: William Buf-
fum, for General Assembly
affairs, and Brian Ur-
