that he supported the Camp
David peace accords be-

that he had opposed com-
mercial boycotts of Israel
and that he believed the

Paris' Jewish community
took place over the weekend
when an arson fire damaged
the Beth Rosh Pinah syna-
gogue. No one was injured
in the incident.
In a related development,
Shimon Peres, Israel's
Labor Party leader, said
after a meeting with Mit-
terrand that he did not be-
live France was a center of
rampant anti-Semitism.
"I myself believe that
there may be anti-
Semi.tes in France but
France herself is not
anti-Semitic, neither by
culture, neither by phi-
losophy, nor by tradi-
tion," Peres said after a
90-minute meeting with
the president.
Peres is in France in an
effort to relieve the strains
developing between Paris
and Jerusalem in the wake
of several terrorist attacks
against Israeli and Jewish-
owned installations.
