Terror suspect's release diminishes
hope for justice in Rome incident

Rome (JTA) — The re-
lease from an Athens prison
last month of a 24-year-old
Palestinian terrorist sus-
pect, Abael Osama Al
Zomar, diminished hope
that any of the killers re-
sponsible for the 1982 gre-
nade and machinegun at-
tack on Rome's main syna-
gogue will be brought tojus-
tice.
Osama is a prime suspect
in the Oct. 9, 1982, attack
that resulted in the death of
a child, Stefano Tache, and
wounded 37 other persons,
most of them Jewish wor-
shippers outside the syna-
gogue. He was arrested on
Nov. 22, 1982, at Kipio on
the Greek-Turkish frontier
for smuggling explosives
which included 60 kilos of
dynamite, time bombs and
other lethal material.
Osama was imprisoned
with an accomplice,
Mohammed al Fayez, who
was not implicated in the
Rome attack. Both were
sentenced on Feb. 27, 1983
to 20 month terms at
Korydallos prison in
Athens. The two were re-
leased on June 22, nearly a
month before_ their sen-
tences were up. Their pre-
sent whereabouts are un-
known, although some
Greek officials believe
Osama is still in Greece.
The Italian government
filed an official request for
Osama's extradition in
January 1983 and it was
approved by a 4-1 vote in the
Assizes court in Praeus on
April 29, 1983. But the
Greek Supreme Court

hedged on the -lower court's
decision and deferred a final
ruling until after the sus-
pect completed sentence for
his offenses on Greek soil.
The Italian authorities
are clearly embarrassed
and the Italian press has
termed the affair "strange"
and "unusual." Two Italian
magistrates, Luigi Gennaro
and Pasquale Lapadura,
were sent to Athens on Feb.
10, 1983, to interrogate
Osama. But they were not
able to do so, in one instance
because of what was de-
scribed as "an incredible er-
ror" by an Athens court

Former MK Flatto-Sharon
gets 3-month prison term

Jerusalem (JTA) —
Former Knesset member
Shmuel Flatto-Sharon was
sentenced to three months
in prison last week after the
Supreme Court rejected his
appeal against his convic-
tion by a lower court for
bribery irothe 1977 Knesset
election campaign.
Flatto-Sharon, who is
again running for the Knes-
set, was warned by the high
court that he would get an
additional 15 months if he
resorted to the same tactics.
Nevertheless, the three-
month term imposed by the
Supreme Court is a mild
penalty compared to the
three years to which he was
originally sentenced by a
lower court. The justices re-

Washington (JTA) — El-
liOtt Abrams, Assistant
Secretary of State for
Human Rights and
Humanitarian Affairs, has
called upon American Jews
to support the Reagan Ad-
ministration's effort to stop
the spread of Communism
by Cuba and the Sandinista
government in Nicaragua.
"The small Jewish com-
munities through Central
America understand that
Communism poses a real
threat to their very survival
as Jews," Abrams told the
United Jewish Appeal Fed-
eration of Washington.
"They understand that the
Nicaraguans and Cubans
must be stopped from ex-
porting revolution.
Abrams reviewed the
anti-Semitic campaign
which the Administration
claims has been waged
against Nicaragua's Jews
since the Sandinistas began
their revolution; from at-
tacks on synagogues to
anti-Zionist propaganda

clerk and later because the
suspect's lawyer, Spyros
Fitrakis, managed to have
the interrogation date post-
poned. When the magis-
trates finally saw Osama,
he refused to say a word, re-
ndering their mission moot.
The Italian media have
accused the Greeks of un-
precedented obstruction.
They note furthermore
that Osama and his ac-
complice received "surpris-
ing mild" sentences on the
explosives smuggling
charges in a country with
very harsh laws for such of-
fenses.

which had led so many
Nicaraguan Jews to flee.

"I think there are two ex-
planations for Sandinista
anti-Semitism — a general
explanation, and a specific
explanation," he said. "The
general explanation is that
the Sandinistas — as they
themselves have frequently
proclaimed — are Com-
munists, and, as such share
the general Communist an-
tipathy toward Jews. The
specific explanation is that
the Sandinistas have long
enjoyed a close relationship
with the PLO, from whom
they have undoubtedly
picked up anti-Jewish be-
liefs and attitudes."

Abrams
endorsed
President Reagan's state-
ment on Nicaraguan Jewry
last year when Reagan said,
"Please share the truth that
Communism in Central
America means not only the
' loss of political freedom but
of religious freedom- as
well."

Flatto-Sharon: appeal

turned down

duced his sentence to bring
it in line with the sentences
imposed on his aides for the
same offense.
Flatto-Sharon, described
as a multi-millionaire, ar-
rived in Israel in the mid
1970s as a fugitive from jus-
tice in France. He was
wanted there for alleged
fraud and illegal financial
transactions but Israel de-
clined to extradite him.
He ran for the Knesset in
1977 on a platform promis-
ing better housing for the
poor. To the surprise of
political analysts, he won
enough votes for two Knes-
set mandates and nearly
enough for a third. But he
sat in the House as a one-
man faction which he called
the "Development and
Peace" list..
Evidence of bribery and
other illegal campaign ac-
tivities by Flatto-Sharon

and his aides surfaced after
the elections. Flatto-Sharon
was stripped of his immun-
ity to stand trial. He did not
participate in the 1981 elec-
tions.
In pronouncing sentence,
the high court declared: "It
is mandatory to make sure
that the elections will be
free and independent of any
coercion, improper influ-
ence and corruption."
