French Intelligence Accused
of Hiring Nazis After War

PARIS (JTA) — Nazi-
hunters Serge and Beate
Klarsfeld accused French
Intelligence organizations
of having employed notori-
ous former Gestapo and
Nazi officials in the post-
war years.
In an interview with Le
Monde, the Klarsfelds said
that America "was not the
only country to have used
former Nazis" and said that
several French intelligence
outfits, including one inves-
tigating _wartime Nazi
crimes, had employed
former Nazi officials.
The Klarsfelds called on
France to follow America's
example and appoint an in-
vestigating commission to
throw all possible light on
these practices.
Using secret docu-
ments obtained from the
files of the D.S.T., a major
French intelligence serv-
ice which Was responsi-
ble for investigating war-
time Nazi crimes, the
Klarsfelds named a
former high-ranking

Misselwitz, as one of the

New Israeli
Rocket Launcher,
Gun Unveiled

Israel military industries,
now marking the 50th an-
niversary of their estab-
lishment, have disclosed
two of their latest products,
both the result of local Is-
rael research and develop-
One is a 60-mm gun
mounted on a swivel which
can be attached to a
standard armored person-
nel carrier or other vehicle.
The gun has a high muzzle
velocity which its producers
say enables it to put out of
commission the heavy
Soviet-made T-72 tanks
now in use by the Syrians.
The other product is a
multi-barrel Katyusha-like
rocket launcher which can
fire either 18 to 36 rockets
simultaneously or in close
sequence. The 160-mm roc-
kets have a range of 30
kilometers. The multi-
barrel launchers are at pre-
sent intended only for ex-


war criminals employed
by the French.
Misselwitz served during
the war in the Paris in the
Paris Gestapo headquarters
and in 1952 was found
guilty of having tortured
French resistance fighters
during interrogation.
The court said he prob-
ably drove to suicide a
prominent resistance
leader, Pierre Brossolette.
The documents published
by the Klarsfelds show that
the French secret service
spirited Misselwitz out of
the country at the time of
his trial and hid him in
Germany to ensure his pro-
Misselwitz and the other
former Nazis were mainly
employed in investigating
wartime Nazi crimes and

The Klarsfelds' revela-
tions were front-paged
by Le Monde which also
called on the government
to open post war intelli-
gence files. The paper
said "France can and
should do what America
has done with Allan
Ryan's investigation."

— A dispute within the
Golan Druze community
ended last month when the
ban placed by religious
leaders upon those Golan
Druze who had accepted or
refused to return Israeli
identity cards was lifted at
the request of Druze nota-
bles from Israel and Leba-
non. At the same time, the
card holders agreed to ac-
cept "the advice" of their
spiritual leaders.
The two-year-old ban
prohibited card carrying
Druze from entering houses
of worship and denied them
religious services such as
marriage and burial.
