ADL Is Told Hate Groups in U.S. Are Becoming More Violent

The ADL was also told
that a wave of terrorist at-
tacks aimed at Jews and Is-
raelis in Western Europe
has killed at least 25 per-
sons and wounded 373
others during the past two

against a Vienna syna-
gogue, in which two per-
sons died and 19 were
wounded — were the
perpetrators ap-
prehended, Foxman
pointed out.
PLO operatives or sym-
pathizers, he went on, were
believed responsible for
most of the attacks. "Unfor-
tunately there has been a
tendency on the part of West
European law enforcement
authorities to view anti-
Semitic terror as part of the
Arab-Israeli conflict and, in
effect, extra-territorial.

This has weakened inves-
tigative efforts."

Last week, representa-
tives of 16 European.Jewish
communities were briefed
in London by anti-
Terrorism officials from
England, France and the
United States.
The meeting was held
under the auspices of the
World Jewish Congress.
Closer cooperation between
the communities and their
national governments and
self-protection measures
were discussed. No details
were announced.

The second by-product,
according to the analyst,
was that the PLO has lost
its independent base which
it had in Lebanon and is now
subject to host countries. He
said while the PLO is now
enjoying popularity because
of Western feelings for the
underdog, it will eventually
realize it has lost' stature
and influence.

voiced in the United States
that the Israeli victory in
Lebanon proved the
superiority of American
weapons over Soviet arms.
