enticement to get the
Jordanians to the peace
"These excesses will
make peace impossible,"
Levin declared, adding that
he was afraid "the stick, in-
stead of the carrot," is being
leveled against the Israelis.
The Senator also charged
that the State Department
has never disclosed publicly
that armed PLO members
remained in west Beirut
after all of them were sup-
posed to have been

ing financial hardship as a
result of years of high infla-
tion.' The facts are consid-
erably at odds with those
"Unemployment in Israel
is among the lowest of the
industrial nations, consid-
erably lower than the rate
in the U.S., Canada, U.K.,
Germany, Belgium and
Holland among others.
"In 1980 unemployment
stood . at 4.8 percent; in
1981 it was 5.1 percent; in
1982 it was an estimated
4.9 percent. It hardly
seems likely that people
are seeking to escape un-
employment in Israel by
emigrating to the U.S.,
where the jobless rate is
twice as high.
"That Israel boasts the
closest thing to full em-
ployment in the Western
world is the result of a policy
set by the government and
carried out by Finance
Minister Yoram Aridor.
That policy is based on a re-
fusal to fight inflation with
unemployment, as appears
to be the case in the U.S.
"It is true that Israel has
high inflation, but its effect
on the individual is minor.
Indexation provides the in-
dividual full compensation
for inflation to protect pur-
chasing power. .
"Israel's 'high inflation,'
therefore, is a misnomer.
That is why private con-

sumption among Israelis
increased by 8.4 percent in
1981. Even in 1982, a year
marked by the Lebanese
war, consumption rose 3.5
percent. These statistics
belie the charge of 'growing
financial hardship' as a
cause of emigration.
"Emigration is always
present in countries of
high immigration, as
American history
demonstrates. In Israel,
emigration has existed
from long before the
founding of the state, as
your reporter observed.
There are no indications
of an increase in emigra-
tion in recent years;
rather, the opposite is
true. Government statis-
tics show a decline to less
than 10,000 emigrants per
year during the past two
"It remains true, never-
theless, that high motiva-
tion and genuine dedication
are needed to live in a coun-
try that has fought five
major wars in 35 years
against enemies sworn to
destroy it.
"The fact that Israel's
Jewish population has in-
creased some sixfold since
the nation achieved inde-
pendence, and that 11 out of
every 12 immigrants to Is-
rael stayed on, testifies to
the existence of such high

Veil 'Tired of Nazi Trials'

PARIS (JTA) — Simone
Veil, former president of
the European Parliament
and a survivor of Au-
schwitz, said she has "had
enough" of trials of former
Nazis or Nazi collaborators.
In an interview with Le
Monde, Veil said: "My views
on this subject might shock
some and might be misun-
derstood by others but 40
years after the war, I have
had enough of these trials."
Mrs. Veil, a former
magistrate, was questioned
about the "Papon affair,"
the case of former Budget
Minister Maurice Papon
who was charged last week
with "crimes against hu-
manity" for his alleged role
in.the deportation of 1,690
Jews from Bordeaux when
he was an official of the
Vichy regime during World
War II.
Mrs. Veil, who takes an
active interest in Jewish af-
fairs, also said she was
adamantly opposed to re-
troactive laws. She stressed
that Papon was being

charged 40 years after the
alleged events, after
France's Parliament lifted
the statue of limitations for
war crimes or crimes
against humanity.
Mrs. Veil, who lost her
family in Auschwitz, said:
"(Adolf) Eichmann was a
case apart. He had become a
symbol. I also think that
(Josef) Mengele (the Au-
schwitz doctor), were he to
be found, would justify some
special measures. As for the
rest, I have had enough of
these trials."
Mrs. Veil said that people
who committed war crimes
or crimes against humanity
and are only now being
found out "should not be
permitted to continue lead-
ing normal, quiet, everyday
She explained that the
public revelation of their
former acts would be suffi-
cient punishment, but ruled
out any legal proceedings.

Let the end try the man.
