Churches Ask Unconditional U.S. Talks With the PLO

WSU Holocaust Volume Praised

The new volume on the
Holocaust by Alice and A.
Roy Eckardt has received
critical acclaim from Rev.
Franklin H. Littell, founder
and honorary chairman of
the National Institute on
the Holocaust.
Dr. Littell wrote the fol-
lowing congratulatory let-
ter to Dr. Bernard Goldman
of the Wayne State Univer-
sity Press, publisher of the
Eckardts' "Long Night's
Journey Into Day":
"I have received a copy of
the book by the Eckardts
and I want to compliment
you on it.
"In the first place the
book is very important,
reaching a new high
point in the work of the
Eckardts, which has for
years been outstanding

in terms of the Christian
relationship to the
Jewish people.
"In the second place, it is
artistically one of the most
beautiful books that I have
seen put out in recent years.
"I lecture two or three
times a week some place in
the United States or abroad,
and I am usually involved in
some issue that affects
Christian/Jewish relations.
I am referring constantly to
the Eckhardts book and
hope that both publishers
and authors get the finan-
cial as well as moral satis-
faction out of its production
which they_ deserve."

charge of the New York City
police department from
1802 to 1849.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.
(JTA) — The American
Jewish Committee has
strongly criticized a section
of a Middle East resolution
adopted by the governing
board of the National Coun-
cil of Churches which called
upon the United States gov-
ernment to "undertake an
open dialogue ) with the
PLO" without requiring the
PLO to repudiate its an-
nounced aims for the violent
destruction of Israel.
AJC reaction was issued
here by Rabbi Marc Tanen-
baum, AJC's national inter-
religious affairs director,
and Rabbi A. James Rudin,
assistant director. Rudin
represented the AJC at the
NCC government board as

an official fraternal ob-
server.
While acknowledging
that the NCC resolution
contains a number of posit-
ive affirmations about Is-
rael and Egypt and the
Camp David peace process,
the two AJC spokesmen de-
plored the fact that "this
latest resolution fails to
urge two preconditions for
any governmental dialogue
with the PLO, namely, the
PLO's recognizing Israel's
right to exist as a sovereign
state and the cessation of all
hostile acts carried out
against Israel.

.

"This resolution can
only lend legitimacy to
the PLO, the pivotal

body."
Such unqualified support
for the PLO in peace negoti-
ations, the AJC officials
said, will only contribute to
the hardening of positions
and will inhibit the cause of
Middle 'East peace rai,her
than advance it.
The NCC resolution,
Tanenbaum and Rudin
said, is at the same time
constructive in a number of
respects. They welcome the
NCC's commendation of Is-
