Egyptian group
Sues Columbia
Over `Sadat'

New York (JTA) — The
Egyptian Movie Syndicate
is suing Columbia Pictures
on grounds that the televi-
sion movie "Sadat," shown
on independent television
channels throughout the
U.S. last year, was "damag-
ing and distorting" to Egyp-
tian history, according to
reports from Cairo.
The film, purporting to be
a biography of the late
President Anwar Sadat of
Egypt, dealt at length with
the events that led to his de-
cision to make peace with
Israel. Shawki el-Sayed, a
lawyer representing the
syndicate, was quoted as
telling a judge in Cairo last
week that Columbia Pic-
tures was "a group of
Zionists." He called the film
"a crime."
The suit seeks two-year
prison terms for six indi-
viduals, including Colum-
bia president Patrick
Williamson and the pro-
ducers, director and writers.
The film has been banned in
Egypt. President Hosni
Mubarak said on a televi-
sion interview recently that
it contained factual errors
and was disrespectful of
Egyptian history.
There was reportedly re-
sentment in Egypt that the
title role in "Sadat" was
played by a black American
actor, Louis Gosset, Jr. The
late Egyptian President
was said to have been "sen-
sitive" of his dark complex-
ion inherited from
Sudanese ancestors.

Bonn (JTA) — A ranking
official of the United Na-
tions Relief and Work
Agency (UNRWA) has pub-
licly praised Israel for its
treatment of Palestinian
refugees in areas under its
control, including parts of
Lebanon.
The remarks by Olof
Rydbeck, a commissioner of
UNRWA, at a press confer-
ence here Monday surprised
observers inasmuch as the
UN agency often has been
accused of anti-Israel bias.
Rydbeck, who met with
Bonn government officials
and members of the German
Parliament, is trying to
raise money for UNRWA
work.
He said the Arab contri-
bution to the budget of the
organization set up to care
for Palestinian refugees has
been dwindling lately. It
amounted to $17 million in
1981, $14 million in 1982,
but only $4 million in 1983,
he claimed.
Rydbeck said the Israeli
authorities are cooperating
with UNRWA in spite of oc-
casional friction. He said
the Israelis are contributing
to the free movement of
UNRWA "at least" as much
as Jordan and Egypt had
done or are doing in areas w
ich were formerly or are still
under their control where
UNRWA facilities are lo-
cated.
