Arab Supporters Pressure Bonn to Invite Qaddafi

BONN (JTA) —The Bonn
government is coming
under increasing pressure
from pro-Arab members of
the Bundestag and the rul-
ing Social Democratic Party
• (SPD) to issue an official in-
vitation to Libya's leader
Col. Muammar Qaddafi to
visit West Germany.
However, in spite of this
pressure, Chancellor Hel-
mut Schmidt is said to be
opposed to such a move.
The campaign to invite
Qaddafi is being led by
member
destag
.rgen Moellemann, one
of the most outspoken anti-
Israeli politicians in Bonn.
Moellemann, a chair-
man of the German-Arab
Friendship Association,
- has publicly denied the
charge that the Libyan
ruler is enhancing inter-
national terrorism. The
— Bundestag deputy, who
is close to Foreign Minis-
-- ter Hans-Dietrich
Genscher, has often ful-
filled delicate missions
with which the Foreign
Ministry did not want to
be publicly associated.
Meanwhile, the German
_ . weekly, Der Spiegel, re-
ported that Genscher

himself has taken a
strong position in favor
of inviting Qaddafi to
Germany, In private con-
sultations, he is reported
to have told Schmidt that
West Germany would
benefit politically, dip-
lomatically and eco-
nomically from such a
move.
Another supporter of an
invitation to Qaddafi is
Hans-Juergen Wis-
chnewski, a long-time spon-
sor of the Arab cause in
Bonn and a top aide of
Schmidt.
Wischnewski, nicknamed
"Ben-Wisch" for his Arab
connections, has argued
that West Germany could
easily fill the vacuum left in
Libya by the United States
and draw major economic
and political benefits.
Still another supporter
of the controversial invi-
tation is Interior Minister
Gerhart Baum of the Free
Democratic Party, the
junior coalition party. He
has expressed hope that
improved relations with
Libya would convince
Qaddafi to stop his logis-
tical aid to West German
neo-Nazi groups, to the

Chancellor
Bruno
Kreisky of Austria is also
involved in lobbying for the
invitation, according to

sources in Bonn. They note
that since the Austrian
leader is still being
criticized for having re-
cently invited Qaddafi to
Vienna, a similar visit by
Libya's ruler to Bonn would
take him off the hook.

Fewer Soviet Jews Coming
to Vienna, NCSJ Reports

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The National Conference on
Soviet Jewry (NCSJ) an-
nounced that only 289
Soviet Jews reached Vienna
in March.
During the first quarter
of this year, 862 exit visas
were granted to Soviet
Jews, a 75 percent drop from
1981's first quarter figure of
3,506; a 90 percent fall from
the 8,875 Soviet Jews who
emigrated during the first
quarter in 1980, and a 93
percent dip from 1979's first
quarter peak of 11,977.
A monthly emigration
comparison further demon-
strates the deteriorated
situation. In March 1979,
when emigration was at a
high point, 4,418 Jews left
the Soviet Union. In the
same month, this year,
since only 289 Jews arrived
in Vienna, emigration had
fallen 93.5 percent.
Meanwhile, Ida Nudel,
back in Moscow after
four years of exile in
Siberia, told relatives

Arabists Seek
Begin's Nobel
Price Revocation

BONN (JTA) — The
German-Arab Friendship
Association has called on
the Nobel Committee in
Stockholm to revoke the
Nobel Peace Prize awarded
to Israeli Premier
Menahem Begin in 1979 for
his role in negotiating the
peace treaty with Egypt.
Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat was the co-recipient.
The pro-Arab group said
in a cable to Stockholm that
Begin forfeited the prize be-
cause he was responsible for
the fatal shooting of Arab
demonstrators during re-
cent clashes with Israeli se-
curity forces on the West
Bank and Gaza Strip.
The Friendship Associa-
tion, which includes mem-
bers of all three political
factions in the Bundestag,
also attacked the Reagan
Administration for support-
ing Israel.
In a press release pub-
lished here, the association
said Israel could not have
carried out its policies with-
out American consent.

"Don't be so optimistic"
that she will be allowed to
leave the Soviet Union
soon.
In a telephone conversa-
tion with her sister in Is-
rael, Ilana Friedman, Nudel
said "It won't happen
quickly, as you would wish.
She said an "ovir" (Sovet
Visa Office) official had told
her that her suffering in
exile did not automatically
give her preferential rights
in her application — now
resubmitted — to emigrate.
She was told first to get a
formal permit to resume liv-
ing in Moscow, and then a
formal affidavit from her
relatives in Israel, part of
the bureaucratic process.

Study Claims Arab Lobby
in England Losing Ground

LONDON (JTA) — A new
study finds that "the pro-
Arab lobby in Britain has
not achieved much in terms
of influencing British public
opinion" and that the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion "has been unable to
enlist a broad-based
grassroots movement.
The study, published by
the Institute of Jewish Af-
fairs, the research arm of
the World Jewish Congress,
examines 10 anti-Israel
/pro-Arab organizations
which are active in Britain.
Among the groups covered
by the survey are the Gen-
eral Union of Palestine Stu-
dents, the British Anti-
Zionist Organization, and
the Council for the Ad-
vancement of Arab-British
Understanding.
The study warns that it
would be false to conclude
that "there exists a
monolithic pro-Arab lobby
,in Britain." What the sur-
vey shows, "is that the
groups which currently
promote an anti-Israel /

pro-Arab policy are danger-
ous far beyond their actual
size."
