ing reactions in the Jewish

community.
Archie Shandling, outgo-
ing chairman of the South
African Jewish Board of
Deputies in Cape" Town,
said he did not intend to be
an alarmist in voicing that
view. He observed, how-
ever, "Many South Africans
are concerned about the
sluggishness of the gov-
ernment's attempts at re-
form and would like to see
more done to allay their
fears."
Shandling," 58, a lawyer,
is widely respected in the
Jewish community. Many
who disagreed with his
prognostication neverthe-
less shared his concern.
Frank Bradlow, national
vice president of the Jewish
Board of Deputies and a
noted historian, said he was
disturbed by the situation
but added:

"I don't believe the
Jews will leave in any
greater numbers than
any other section of the

community. However, I
do agree that South Afri-
cans should take note of
the growing signs of fas-
cism."

Shandling, who said he
has no intention of leaving
the country, said, "The
question for us, as always, is
. . . how long? My own pri-
vate feeling is that there
will not be a Jew left in
South Africa by the year
2000. I am driven to this
conclusion because of the
increasing growth of the
right wing in this country.
"Jews have always been a
target for this sort of thing.
The strength of these people
cannot be ignored especially
in times of political uncer-
tainty."
He urged the government
to look to the future care-
fully and to be wary of creat-
ing an irreversible situa-
tion.

especially abroad. The
group, led by Eugene
Terreblanche, maintains
that only whites should
be citizens of South Af-
rica and that the Jews,
British, Indians and
Chinese must not be
allowed to get political
power.

Its members dress in
Nazi-type uniforms and
display Nazi emblems.
Their main immediate
target are prominent indus-
trialists and financiers in
this country who, the group
claims, are working "hand
in hand with the interna-
tional money power."

WASHINGTON — A
splinter Palestinian ter-
rorist group has been
formed as an apparent chal-
lenge to the leadership of
Yasir Arafat and the PLO's
main organization, Al
Fatah, according to Reagan
Administration officials
and sources in the Middle
East. The splinter group is
said to be the recipient of
secret backing from Syria.
The group, which has
taken the name Abu Nidal,
is believed to be responsible
for several terrorist actions
including the assassination
of Heinz Nittel, a Vienna
city councilor and chairman
of the Austro-Israel Society.
Authorities believe that
the group has targeted Au-
strian Chancellor Bruno
Kreisky for assassination.
They feel that Kreisky's
closeness to mainstream
Palestinians has put him on
the Abu Nidal hit-list.
