THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Demonstrators Mark Grunzweig Murder

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
An estimated 40,000 people
marched and massed in the
heart of Jerusalem Satur-
day night to commemorate
the first anniversary of the
grenade murder of Peace
Now activist Emil
Grunzweig. There were no
incidents.
The demonstration, or-
ganized by the Peace Now
movement, was the largest
ever held in the city. In
addition to demands that
the killers of Grunzweig be
brought to justice, the
demonstrators called for the
complete withdrawal of Is-
raeli troops from Lebanon
and urged the Likud gov-
ernment to step down.
Grunzweig, a 33-year-old
teacher, was killed when a
hand grenade of Israel army
issue was thrown into a
crowd of Peace Now demon-
strators on the night of Feb.
10, 1983, outside the Prime
Minister's Office.
Saturday night, the
marchers bearing
torches formed a human
chain along Ben-Yehuda
Street, one of
Jerusalem's main
thoroughfares and as-
cended the hill to the
government offices. It
was the same route fol-
lowed by the Peace Now
group, Grunzweig among
them, almost a year ago.
The memorial rally began
with a minute of silence for
Grunzweig. Speakers in-
cluded Mayor Teddy Kollek
of Jerusalem. He said the
grenade which killed
Grunzweig was a warning
that terrorism had infil-
trated the Jewish commu-
nity and was being used by
Jews against Jews. The
warning was not heeded
and terror continued and
was even strengthened, the
mayor said.
He was referring, appar-
ently, to the recent grenade
and bomb incidents at
Christian and Moslem reli-
gious shrines -- most re-
cently on the Temple Mount
— attributed to Jewish ex-
tremists. "Either we control
terror or terror will control
us," Kollek warned.
Tzaly Reshef, a Peace
Now leader, declared that
the memory of Grunzweig
can be honored by continu-
ing in his path and demand-
ing that those in responsible
positions be held accounta-
ble for their actions. He
cited mounting demands for
a withdrawal from Leba-
non. "More and more people
support Peace Now, fewer
and fewer are willing to

WB Construction

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Asher Wiener, director -
general of the Construction
and Housing Ministry, said
last Thursday that con-
struction activities will con-
tinue in Judea and
Samaria, although cuts in
the ministry's budget might
slow down the pace of ac-
tivity.
He said that deliberations
on budget cuts have not yet
been concluded, but that
whatever the outcome, con-
struction will not be inter-
rupted.

support a failing policy such
as that of the government,"
he said.
Shaul Friedlander, a
professor at the Hebrew
University, aimed his re-
marks at the Likud gov-
ernment. "You have been
here too long for the too
little good you have done.
In the name of God, go,"
he demanded. Yitzhak
Ben-Aharon, a veteran
Laborite, accused the
Likud government of up-
setting the norms which

had prevailed in Israeli
society for 40 years. It is
high time for a change, he
said.
Earlier, Premier Yitzhak
Shamir condemned in-
tolerance and lack of
mutual respect in Israel and
said that this atmosphere
led to the kind of violence
that culminated in the
Grunzweig murder and the
recent attacks against
Christian and Moslem holy
places.
Shamir, who attended a

memorial meeting for
Grunzweig, said that politi-
cal leaders who failed to
condemn verbal violence
shared the blame for the
conditions that have led to
physical violence.
He stated that such at-
tacks indicate that the civil
laws of the country are
being endangered by cow-
ardice and intolerance.
"The danger to our society
today is internal, not exter-
nal, and only we can uproot
it," he declared.
