internal reinforcement of
the communities, the
maintenance of Jewish
identity and spiritual life,
and continuity between the
generations. Among other
specific subjects, the dele-
gates underlined the need to
overcome divisiveness
within the communities and
to make more of their mem-
bers active.
The government of
Guatemala was represented
at the opening and closing
sessions of the convention
by two of its ministers.
Minister of Agriculture
Rodolfo Perdomo spoke
at the opening, praising
his country's friendship
with Israel. At the clos-
ing, Foreign Minister
Fernando Andrade Diaz
Duran presented a full
political overview of his
country.
He stressed that guerril-
las in Guatemala are under
control and lack popular
support; U.S. policy toward
Guatemala is not equitable;
friendship and cooperation
with Israel; Guatemala
opened its doors to Jews who
succeeded in leaving Cuba;
and Guatemala is ready to
receive Jewish immigrants
from any part of the world.
At this convention, Pin-
kos Rubinstein of Costa
Rica completed his term as
president of FEDECO, and
Marcel Ruff of Guatemala
was elected as its new
president. The convention
honored two people for their
contribution to the success
of FEDECO's activities:
within the region, former
FEDECO president Moises
Mizrachi of Panama, and
outside the region, Manuel
Tenenbaum, director of the
Latin American Branch of
WJC.

UNIFIL Clash With Shiites

SAVE,

J

the WJC here, concluded its
three-day session last week.
There were 100 delegates
and guests, with represen-
tatives from the Jewish
communities of Guatemala,
El Salvador, Honduras,
Costa Rica and Panama, as
well as representatives
from the Israeli Foreign
Ministry, Jewish Agency,
HIAS and the Anti-
Defamation League of Bnai
Brith.
The convention took place
against the backdrop of the
explosive situation reigning
in Central America and the
uncertainty regarding the
future of the region. Among
the Jewish leadership there
was the conviction that if
the "Nicaraguan process"
were to extend to other
countries, the possibilities
for the survival of the
Jewish communities would
disappear.
An analysis of the
Jewish situation in the
region showed two stable
and dynamic com-
munities: Panama
(5,000-6,000) and Costa
Rica (2,000-3,000). In
addition, Guatemala
(some 1,000 Jews) is a
community reduced by
emigration but organized
and active. El Salvador
and Honduras have some
40 Jewish families each.
Despite the potential
dangers arising from the
general political situation,
the Jews of Central
America did not see them-
selves as being on the eve of
a massive exodus or the ex-
tinction of their com-
munities.
On the contrary, a great
part of the discussions at the
FEDECO convention and of
the resolutions that were
adopted had to do with the

between members of the
United Nations Interim
Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL)
and Shiite militias, com-
plicating Israel's efforts to
improve relations with the
Shiites.
There has been a series of
confrontations between UN
troops and Shiite
militiamen in the region
south of the Awali River.
The latest occurred last
week when Shiites blocked
a road to halt a UNIFIL
supply convoy manned by
Ghanaian soldiers. In the
ensuing . clash, one
militiaman was wounded
and three were captured.
Timor Goksell, a
spokesman for UNIFIL,
has called on Israel to re-
strain local elements
operating in territory
occupied and controlled
by the Israel Defense
Force.
Shimon Peres, chairman
of the opposition Labor
Party, warned that an im-
mediate danger exists that
Shiite Moslem fundamen-
talists might seize power in
Lebanon and turn that
country into a new "con-
frontation state" with Is-
rael.

Patrol Shoots Two Civilians

TEL AVIV (JTA) — An
Israel army patrol inadver-
tently killed one Israeli civi-
lian and wounded another
in the Gaza Strip last week,
apparently having mis-
taken them for terrorists. A
soldier was also wounded,
reportedly by a richocheting
bullet.
The shooting occurred
near Beth Lahiya in the
northern end of the Gaza
Strip. The two civilians
were inspectors of the Israel
Nature Preserves
Authority who were riding
in a jeep carrying arms to
shoot stray dogs to prevent
rabies.
One inspector was killed
instantly when the patrol
opened fire and the other
suffered a shoulder wound.
It was uncertain who fired
the bullet that struck the
soldier.

The army and the Nature
Preserves Authority are in-
vestigating the incident.

Fanatic faith, once wed-
ded fast to some dear false-
hood, hugs it to the last.
