Navon Decries Gap in Israel Between Religious, Secular

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
President Yitzhak Navon
warned Sunday that the di-
visions between religious
and secular elements is the
most dangerous internal
threat to Israeli society to-
day. The two groups are
growing further apart, he
said.

Navon, who will retire
when his five-year term
ends next month, expressed
his views in radio and tele-
vision interviews on the oc-
casion of Independence Day.
He said he wondered why
education had to be segre-
gated from kindergarten on
between religious and non-

Arens Concerned by Syria

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Defense Minister Moshe
Arens contended last week
that there is "cause for con-
cern" that Syria might at-
tack Israeli forces in Leba-
non. He said this does not
mean that war is imminent
but that Israel has to be on
guard on that front.
Arens said Israel does not
want hostilities with Syria
but warned that Damascus
has always been so hostile
toward Israel that its policy
could, with justification, be
called "wild," especially as
the Syrians may be embol-
dened by the installation of
Soviet SAM-5 anti-aircraft
missiles on their soil.
Arens made his remarks
on a television interview,
his first since taking office
as defense minister six
weeks ago. The former Is-
raeli ambassador to Wash-
ington castigated President
Reagan for delaying the
sale of 75 F-16 jet fighter-
bombers to Israel until Is-

rael pulls its forces out of
Lebanon.
"I'm afraid there is no
precedent to such a
statement in relations be-
tween Israel and the
United States during 35
years," Arens declared.
"It never happened that
an American President
has said that the supply
of aid to which the United
States obligated itself is
conditioned on conces-
sions on policy. Today in
Lebanon, tomorrow on
another front," Arens
said.
In that connection he
urged greater stress on the
development of Israel's
domestic arms industry to
reduce its dependence on
American weaponry. Arens
also denounced Reagan's
recent promise to King
Hussein that the U.S. would
prevail upon Israel to freeze
its settlement activities on
the West Bank if Jordan
joined the peace process.

religious Jews. Such sub-
jects as mathematics or
geography need not be
taught separately. "There is
no such thing as religious
mathematics," he said.

Navon said the ethnic
gap — between Sephar-
dic and Ashkenazic Jews
— is narrowing percepti-
bly thanks, among other
things, to intermarriage
between the two groups.
He predicted that the gap
will disappear in a rela-

tively short time. The
President urged greater
political tolerance.
Premier Menahem Begin
also called for "mutural re-
spect . . . among friends and
rivals" in his Independence
Day message. But he de-
voted much of his address to
ruling out a freeze on set-
tlements on the West Bank
as urged by President Re-
agan. He claimed the set-
tlements were not only legal
but a vital element of Is-
rael's security.

1,500 Attend Montreal Fest
on Israel's 35th Anniversary

MONTREAL (JTA) —
About 1,500 persons
attended festivities mark-
ing the 35th anniversary of
Israel's Independence at the
Expo Theater.
David Azieli, chairman of
the Canadian Zionist Fed-
eration's Eastern Region,
saluted the people of Israel
and assured them of the
unanimous support of of the
Jewish community of
Montreal.
In Washington, some
1,000 persons attended a re-
ception at the Israeli Em-
bassy marking the 35th an-
niversary of the indepen-
dence of the Jewish state.
Members of the Reagan
Administration, Senators
and Congressmen and
representatives of the
Washington area Jewish
community were among
the guests.
The event was hosted by
Acting Ambassador Benja-
min Netanyahu and his
wife, Fleur. Netanyahu is
expected to stay on in Wash-
ington as charge d'affaires,
the number two spot at the
embassy, when Meir
Rosenne takes over as am-
bassador sometime in
mid-May.
Rosenne was hosting his
last Independence Day cel-
ebration at the Israel Em-
bassy in Paris where he has
been the ambassador for
four years.
Meanwhile, Washington
Mayor Marion Barry has
sent an Independence Day
greeting to his counterpart
in the Israeli capital,
Jerusalem Mayor Teddy
Kollek. "May our prayers

Appeal Possible
in Extradition
of Albert Rauca

MOST POPULAR MEMBERS ONLY
TYPE JACKET

TORONTO (JTA) — At-
torneys for. Albert Helmut
Rauca, a_naturalized Cana-
dian charged with the war-
time murders of thousands
of Jews in Lithuania, said
last week they may appeal a
ruling by the Ontario Sup-
reme Court ordering his ex-
tradition to West Germany
to stand trial.
The unanimous decision
-upheld a lower court ruling
that Rauca, 74, should be
extradited to face trial on
five indictments charging
he murdered 11,864
Lithuanian Jews in a Nazi
camp in Kauntas. Rauca
came to Canada legally in
1950, became a citizen in
1956 and was arrested last
June after witnesses iden-
tified him as a former Nazi
enforcer in Lithuania.
The Ontario Supreme
Court agreed that Rauca's
constitutional rights, under
Canada's new charter,
would be violated by extrad-
ition but held that the pros-
ecution had succeeded in
demonstrating that such a
violation was justifiable in a
democratic society on such
charges.
