of Art not to display a pro-
posed archeological exhibit
from Israel is "purely politi-
cal" and that "there can be
no dispute" that the ar-
cheological artifacts that
were meant to be displayed
at the museum originated
"in the Land of the Bible —
the Land of Israel."
Metropolitan
The
Museum of Art said that it
decided against the Israeli
exhibit because some of the
artifacts came from the
West Bank, captured by Is-
rael in the 1967 Six-Day
War, and would, therefore,
pose security risk for the

museum.

Philippe de Montebello,
director of the Metropoli-
tan, said: "We're very sorry,
because we wanted to do the
show, particularly in view
of the fact that our own col-
ections contain so little of
this material (ranging from
earliest times to the
Crusades). But we finally
decided that besides the se-

curity risk from radical
elements, it would be in-
appropriate; that the
museum would be taking a
de facto stand in showing
this material as the heri-
tagel of the state of Israel."
Israeli officials said
that they do not rule out
the possibility that the
Metropolitan caved in to
Arab pressure. However,
in a statement issued
here by Shmuel Moyal,
spokesman for the Israel
Consulate in New York,
Israel said that it was
"deeply disturbing" that
the museum has allowed
"considerations of purely
political nature to deter-
mine its policy of plan-
ning archeological and
scientific exhibits."

can be found for drawing
arbitrary lines between the
numerous archeological
sites that together consti-
tute a land dating back
thousands of years. The
museum itself has acknowl-
edged that the nature of its
decision to draw such lines
was entirely political, relat-
ing to what it calls the 'dis-
pute' over the area from
which the artifacts origi-
nated."

Political Parties

JERUSALEM (JNI) —
Exactly 201 different party
lists have run in the Knes-
set elections since the
founding of Israel — and 80
of them never won a single
seat, 21 of them in the last
elections.
According to a new Gov-
ernment Information Cen-
ter booklet, voter turnout
dropped to a low of 75.1 per-
cent in 1951 from a high of
86.9 percent in 1949, the
first Knesset elections.

An Undiplomatic Response

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Some 80 Bnai Brith youth
from the United States,
Canada and England,
standing vigil across the
street from the Soviet Em-
bassy, came face to face with
the ugly side of world
reality when a member of
the embassy staff called one
of the teenagers a "dirty
Jew."
The youngsters were in
Washington to attend a
Bnai Brith Youth Organ-
ization executive --board
meeting and briefings by
Congressional and State
Department officials.
They braved a heavy
rainstorm to participate in
the demonstration for
Soviet Jewry. In a spur-of-
the-moment display of emo-
tion, the teenagers formed a
circle, sang songs and
chanted slogans calling for
the release of Jewish refus-
niks by the Soviet Union.

Over
Award to Reagan

.Debate

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The decision of the National
Conference of Christians
and Jews (NCCJ) to present
President Reagan, during a
dinner here March 23, a
humanitarian award is fac-
ing growing opposition by
members of the NCCJ.
President Reagan is to re-
ceive the Charles Evans
Hughes Gold Medal for
"courageous leadership in
governmental, civic and
humanitarian affairs." The
medal is named after the
Chief Justice of the U.S.
from 1930 to 1941, who was
co-founder of the NCCJ. Re-
agan agreed to receive the
award.
The growing controversy
within the NCCJ is whether
the President should be pre-
sented with the award in
view of his economic and so-
cial policies. The New York
Times quoted a confidential
memorandum of the NCCJ
staff workers which said:
"Because of the effect of
these (Reagan's) policies
and prevailing perceptions
as to their intent and out-
come, intergroup relations
are being severely
strained." The memoran-
dum suggests that the deci-
sion to honor Reagan "is in
clear violation of published
selection procedures."

Unlawful desires are
punished after the effect of
enjoying; but impossible de-
sires are punished in the de-
sire itself.
—Sir P. Sidney

sonnel began leaving the
building for lunch, Andy
Shavel of Buffalo ran
over to hand out leaflets.
As he approached them
one of the Rusisians
called out, "Watch your-
self, you ditry Jew."
Shavel, a high school
junior, was stunned for a
moment. "I tried to reason
with him," he said later. "I
asked, 'What had our people
ever done to hurt you?' "
Shavel said the man re-
sponded by "yelling at me in
Russian. As he got into his
car, he stuck his tongue out
at me," the teenager added.
"I never expected that from
a diplomat."
The youngsters were in
Washington 41/2 days, most
of the time discussing issues
concerning Jewish teena-
gers and formulating policy
for the 35,000-member
BBYO, the largest Jewish
youth group in the world.
They also met with an
aide to BBYO alumnus Rep.
Martin Frost (D-Tex.), with
officials of the Israeli Em-
bassy, the American Is/ ael
Public Affairs Committee
and State Department, and
with Bnai Brith President
Jack Spitzer and Executive
Vice President Dr. Daniel
Thursz.
