14 Kt. GOLD AND DIAMOND BRACELETS

The virus of hate

BY DON McEVOY

I recently wrote about the
appearance in Memphis of
anti-Catholic posters, plas-
tered on walls and windows
of empty buildings.
Following that column, I
received a letter with a Van
Nuys, Calif. postmark, tak-
ing me to task. The writer
did not sign his name, but
did indicate an affiliation
with the Jews for Jesus. He
suggested that the whole
thing was "as queer as a
three dollar bill . . . and was
probably done by the Jews,"
presumably to divert the
American public from the
real truth" that they were
the ones who controlled the
media and were plotting to
use it for world domination.
Enclosed with his letter
were a series of pamphlets
which the writer said
"should open your blinded
eyes and closed mind, but I
doubt it."
The stuff he sent was one
of the worst collections of
anti-Semitic garbage that I
have ever seen. The pam-
phlets were printed and dis-
tributed by such outfits as
the Christian Nationalist
Crusade, Los Angeles;
Lord's Covenant Church,
Phoenix; Western Front,
Hollywood, Calif.; and a
couple of others which had
the identification blacked
out.
I wish I could laugh about
it, but I cannot. On the one
hand it is rather nice to
know that the professional
bigots and peddlers of prej-
udice are squabbling among
themselves. But on the
other hand, to know that
they are still around pollut-
ing the atmosphere is dis-

tressing.
The presence of these
kinds of anti-social atti-
tudes, circulating in the
mails, on placards and on
the airwaves, is as danger-
ous to the health of oliv
society as the free-float:
virus of any deadly diseat,
The people who circulate
this kind of hate are as
threatening to our health as
the carriers of typhoid or the
bubonic plague in earlier
eras.
What to do about them is
beyond me. I do not claim to
know what is right in oppos-
ing them. But I sure do rec-
ognize the bad when I see it.
And this is demonic.

U.S. rejects
Benvenisti ,
views on WB

Washington (JTA) — The
State Departinent rejected
last week the view of former
Jerusalem Deputy Mayor
Meron Benvenisti that Is-
rael's occupation of the
West Bank is nearly ir-
reversable.
"We do not believe it is too
late for a negotiated resolu-
tion of the conflict based on
Israel's return of territory
in exchange for a just and
durable peace," the depart-
ment said.
The State Department
said that it was aware of
Benvenisti's views which he
had discussed with De-
partment officials several
times.
