Reward Posted in Yeshiva U. Shooting

NEW YORK (JTA) — A
total of $15,000 in reward
money has been offered by
New York City and a major
Jewish organization for in-
formation leading to the ap-
prehension of the person or
persons responsible for a
series of sniper attacks on
Yeshiva University stu-
dents.
The announcement of the

reward followed the wound-
ing last Sunday afternoon of
a Yeshiva University High
School student who was rid-
ing in a car on an express-
way in the vicinity of the
school after having left the
Manhattan west side cam-
pus; and the killing of a
woman in another car that
was travelling ahead of the
student's car.

.

Police Commissioner
Robert McGuire linked
Sunday's shooting to three
shooting incidents last June
of which Yeshiva Univer-
sity students were the appa-
rent targets.
In the earlier shoot-
ings, which took place in
and around the campus
of Yeshiva University,
shots were fired on June

Anti-Israelism Is Predicted
Again at Central Assembly

By YITZHAK RABI

UNITED
NATIONS
(JTA) — The 38th session of
the United Nations General
Assembly, which opened
here Tuesday, promises to
be as anti-Israeli as previ-
ous sessions, diplomats and
observers here agree.
But, they also agree, the
Arabs have no prospects of
gaining any meaningful
diplomatic victories against
Israel, apart from the usual
anti-Israel votes in the as-
sembly and the various UN
committees.
In the view of diplomats
here, the first few weeks of
the 12-week assembly will
be overshadowed- by two

which, in effect, would

result in the suspension
of Israel from the 38th
session.
So far, all previous Arab
attempts in that direction
were thwarted by firm
American opposition. The
United States made it clear
that any attempt to suspend
Israel would be met by se-
. vere American retaliation,
including the suspension of
its dues — which amount to
25 percent of the UN
budget.
The explosive situation in
Lebanon and the continuing
war between Iran and Iraq
— going well into its fourth
year — will clearly stand
between any attempts by
the Arabs and their suppor-
ters to create a meaningful
and effective anti-Israeli
campaign during the 38th
session of the assembly, the
diplomats said.
They added that the
Arabs are not certain to ob-
tain this year the automatic
support they enjoyed in the
last 10 years from Black Af-
rican nations in view of the
new' inroads Israel has
made among various Black
African nations, some of
whom have restored their
diplomatic ties with Israel
and reopened their embas-
sies in Jerusalem. .
The Arabs, however,
will continue what has
become the cornerstone
of their anti-Israel dip-
lomacy at the UN, one
senior Israeli diplomat
explained.
"The Arabs will try again
to delegitimize the exis-
tence of Israel, by passing
more and more anti-Israel
resolutions," the Israeli of-
ficial said, contending that
this has been their unde-
clared aim since the 1967
Six-Day War.

Plight of Soviet
Jews Is Focus
of SF Sculpture

SAN FRANCISCO (JTA)
— A sculpture demanding
freedom for Soviet Jews re-
cently appeared off High-
way 80 in the Emeryville
mudflats outside of San
Francisco. The anonymous
sculpture, entitled "Let My
People Go" in four-foot-high
letters, is viewed daily by
thousands of Bay Area
commuters.
According to Morey
Schapira, president of the
Bay Area Council on Soviet
Jewry, the sculpture repre-
sents a growing concern for
the 2.5 million Soviet Jews
"now being held as pawns
by an increasingly anti-
Semitic Soviet regime."
Meanwhile, in New York,
city council adopted a resol-
ution affirming its com-
mitment to speak out for
Soviet Jewry at every op-
portunity and to work un-
ceasingly to open the gates
for those -Jews who wish to
leave the Soviet Union. The
resolution was introduced
by Councilman Robert
Dryfoos (D. Man.).
