Disturbance of Democracies Terrorist Aim: French Rabbi

Li

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Chief Rabbi Rene Sirat of
France, in the United States
for the first time since the
recent wave of terrorist at-
tacks on Jewish and Israeli
installations in France, said
that the elements responsi-
ble for these actions are part
of an organized effort to "de-
stabilize Western democ-
racies."
"The Jewish community
of France has been singled
out for attack," Sirat, speak-
ing in French, said through
an interpreter at a news
conference held under the
auspices of the World
Jewish Congress-American
Section. "I am not sure of
the reason but probably be-
cause . . . it is a community
that affirms its Jewish-
ness."
Sirat pointed out that
France's Jewish commu-
nity, numbering between
650,000-700,000, is char-
acterized by its "profound
sense of attachment and sol-
idarity" with Israel and
Soviet Jewry. The French
Jewish community is the
largest in the free world
outside the U.S., he said.

Addressing the issue of
anti-Semitism in France
and the terrorist attacks
which culminated earlier
last month when six
people were killed and 22
wounded by terrorists'
who opened fire in Jo
Goldenberg's restaurant
in the heart of Paris'
Jewish quarter, the
Marais, Sirat would not
attribute these actions
directly to a climate of in-
citement which may have
been created in France,
as some' have suggested,
nor .would he blame the
media for its coverage of
Israel's Peace for Galilee
operation.
Sirat said sincere concern
has been expressed by the
administration of President
Francois Mitterrand over
the wave of terrorism. He
said this was underscored
by the appearance of Mit-
terrand and Interior Minis-
ter Gaston Defferre at a
memorial service following
the attack on Goldenberg's
restaurant.
He said the entire reli-

'

gious leadership in France
— Protestant, Catholic and
Moslem — sent condolences
after the attack on the res-
taurant and that he also re-
ceived a "very warm" mes-
sage from former President
Valery Giscard d' Estaing.
The chief rabbi noted
that there were distinct
differences in condo-
lences expressed by the
Mitterrand Administra-
tion and those offered by
Chancellor Bruno
Kreisky of Austria after a
, terrorist attack on a Vie-
nna synagogue last year.
. Sirat said that Kerisky
not only did not attend the
memorial service for the
victims of that attack, but
he released a statement
charging that the incident
was partically a result of Is-
rael's policies in the Middle
East.
Sirat suggested that time
was needed to see if the
plans outlined by Mitter-
rand two weeks ago to com-
bat terrorism will have an
effect.
He said that while steps

lished to deal with the man-
power shortage in Israel
during the recent mass
call-up of civilian reservists
into active military duty in
Lebanon.
/ Five-hundred American
volunteers are presently
working on moshavim and
military installations in Is-
rael and and 15Q left last
week. Volunteers are har-
vesting crops or doing civi-
lian guard duty.
Volunteers are desper-
ately needed to salvage
this season's crops. Cap-
tain Meir Indor of the Is-
rael Defense Forces,
heading the recruitment
drive in New York, said
that part of the group of
volunteers leaving last
week will be used to help
in this emergency.
Captain Indor says the
recruitment drive will con-
tinue on a permanent basis.
"We received thousands of
inquiries," he said. "More
than our small group can
handle." Because the re-
sponse was so great, the
organization and funding
for the continued operation
of the recruitment drive is
being set up in Israel by the
committee of moshavim and
the Israel Defense Forces.
He said that all volunteers
will not be placed im-
mediately in Israel, but will
join a pool of volunteers that
Israel can rely on when
needed.
Volunteers are invited to
call the Israel Recruitment
Drive, (212) 988-2121, or
write them at the Jewish
Agency, 515 Park Ave.,
