Soviets Undermining Rights

setting fire to synagogues in
order to settle in Israel.
In addition, anti-
Jewish material has been
distributed to recruits of
the Red Army and pub-
lished in official journals
of the Soviet armed
The Soviets also export
anti-Semitism to Arab, Af-
rican and other Third World
countries. Writings of out-
spoken Soviet anti-Semites
have been widely distrib-
uted by the Palestine Liber-
on Organization and dis-
in English
throughout the English-
speaking world.
"Jewish history is deleted
from Soviet elementary and
secondary schools," Kam-
pelman stated. "Indeed, the
Russian pogroms of the late
19th Century against the
Jews are justified in a
Soviet publication as part of
the class struggle."
Kampelman stressed that
"the Soviet Union — with
the third largest Jewish
populatioain the world — is
the only country with a
Jewish population in which
there is not a single ap-
proved Jewish school and no
means for teaching Jewish
history and tradition." In
recent weeks, over 80
teachers of Hebrew in Mos-
cow alone were threatened
with prosecution and
banishment if they contin-
ued teaching, he said.
"Invasion Without
Arms," a book by Vla-
dimir Begun published in
150,000 copies in 1977 and
republished in 1979,
characterized the Torah
as "an unsurpassed
textbook (of) hypocrisy,
treachery, perfidy and
moral degeneracy — all
the base human qual-
ities." Begun writes,



"Jewish and Christian
hypocrites alike keep si-
lent over this."

Another book, "Judaism
and Zionism," by Trofim
Kichko, soon to be pub-
lished, pretends to "unmask
the criminal activities of
various Zionist organiza-
tions and Zionist-oriented
Judaism." A previous
Kichko book written in
1964 was so virulently
anti-Semitic it provoked in-
ternational protests, includ-
ing some from major West-
ern Communist parties. The
soviets were forced to with-
draw it for "erroneous
Kampelman also singled
out the "White Book," is-
sued by Soviet authorities
in 1979, subtitled, "Espion-
age and Deception in the
Name of Defense for Human
Rights." This book is filled
with preposterous accusa-
tions and anti-Semitic at-
tacks on Soviet Jewish ac-
tivities and Western corre-
spondents of Jewish origin.
"Even after this despicable
work received worldwide
condemnation," Kampel-
man said, "a second edition
was released in December
Meanwhile, an official of
the World Zionist Organiza-
tion has warned Israeli
leaders that the Soviet
Union has embarked on a
new anti-Zionist offensive
which will attempt to use
the words of prominent
world Jewish leaders to dis-
credit Zionism and Israel.

At the same time, El-
liott Abrams, U.S. Assis-
tant Secretary of State
for Human Rights and
Humanitarian Affairs,
said at a Geneva press
conference that the issue
of Soviet Jewry will be
brought up by the Ameri-

Education Boom in Mideast

The total number of stu-
dents enrolled at all levels
of education in Israel now
stands at 1,360,000, of
whom 1,164,000 are Jews
and 196,500 are Arabs. This
year the educational system
is staffed with 65,000
On the West Bank (and
excluding the Arabs in -the
Gaza Strip and the Golan
Heights) there are now
280,000 students, compared
with 260,000 last year, and
137,000 in 1967, when Is-
rael took over control of
those areas. There are now
9,271 Arab teachers on the
West Bank.
In this connection the
President of the University
of the Negev, Shlomo Gazit,
pointed out that the number
of university students in the
Arab world continues to
grow at a remarkable rate.
There are now 1,400,000
students at the university
level in Arab countries
compared with only 55,000
in the state of Israel.
Gazit went on to say
that only 10 years ago
Israel had 13,000 stu-
technological fields corn-

pared with only 15,000 in
all of the Arab world.
However, within the last
decade the number of
students in technological
training in Israel in-
creased by 57 percent
and there are now 20,000
of them in the country.
By contrast, the rate of
_increase in that field for the
Arab world was 600 percent
and there are now 90,000
students training in
technological fields in all of
the Arab countries.

NCJW Program

NEW YORK — For more
than a decade, the Home In-
struction Program for
Preschool Youngsters
(HIPPY) of the NCJW Re-

thousands of disadvantaged

This program is described
in a new book, "Success Be-
