Freedom Is Everybody's Business

By RABBI MARC
TANENBAUM

Why have the Jews
marched again up Fifth
Avenue? A few weeks ago it
was for Israel's 35th an-
niversary. A week after, it
was for the three million
Jews suffering oppression
in the Soviet Union.
Doesn't anyone else suffer
oppression in Russia and
elsewhere? Why aren't
people marching for the
persecuted Baptists and
Pentecostals in Russia? The
Catholics in Lithuania and
Poland?
These are interesting
questions that people must
be asking themselves and
they deserve a straight an-
swer.
In mid-April, six Sibe-
rian Pentecostal Chris-
tians were released from
the American Embassy in
Moscow. They took ref-

uge in the American Em-
bassy in 1978 to escape
terrible persecution by
the Soviet Union. They
vowed to remain in the
Embassy until they and
their families were
allowed to emigrate to a
country where they could
practice freely their reli-
gion.
On April 10, one of the
Pentecostals was finally
given a Soviet exist visa.
She went to Israel and is
sending invitations to the
newly-released members of
her family to join her in the
Jewish state.
Among the groupswho
agitated for release of the
persecuted Christians were
the National Interreligious
Task Force for Soviet Jewry
headed by Sister Ann Gil-
len, the American Jewish
Committee and the Chris-
tian Legal Society.
The moral experience is

Arab Prisoner Claims Abuse

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A
West Bank Arab arrested
last month for alleged in-
citement, has complained to
the Supreme Court that he
was tortured while under-
going interrogation by his
Israeli jailers and asked the
court to order his transfer to
a different prison.
The complainant, Walid
Mahmoud Al Arda, is the
son of the Mayor of Arrabe,
a village in the northern
region of the West Bank. It
was at Arrabe last month
that a mysterious illness
broke out among local high
school girls, provoking
charges by local Arabs of
mass poisoning by Israelis.
Al Arda was accused of
trying to generate public
panic by reviving the poison
scare. He denied the charge
but claimed in his petition
to the Supreme Court that
one of his interrogators beat
him and tortured him with
electric shock.
In an unrelated develop-
ment, police last week re-
leased a suspect arrested in
connection with the gre-

Secret Jews'

JERUSALEM .(JNI) —
The issue of aliya for
3,000-5,000 "secret Jews"
reportedly still living in
northern Portugal and
Spain reached the Israeli
headlines last week, as
Labor Party delegates Aha-
ron Nahmias and Rabbi
Menahem Hacohen com-
pleted their mission to
southern Europe for absorp-
tion Minister Aharon Uzan.
"We found Jews who have
never abandoned their reli-
gion since the days of the
Inquisition."
Later, in response to an
appeal by two members of
the Zionist Executive to dis-
cuss the possible aliya of
Marranos and "secret Jews"
in other countries like Af-
ghanistan, Chairman Arye
Dulzin set off debate re-
miniscent of the "Who is a
Jew" controversy by declar-
ing that the World Zionist
Organization and Jewish
Agency deal "with the aliya
of Jews only."

nade murder of Peace Now
activist Emil Grunzweig
last February. The suspect,
who was not identified by
name, had been in custody
for 15 days.

clear — while Jews march
for the liberation of their
brothers and sisters in Rus-
sia, the effects of that
Jewish campaign is in the
end beneficial to all people
who are denied their human
rights. That's why the re-
cent Solidarity Day
marches are everybody's
business, not just Jewish
business.
