"I want to say to the
Arabs — your fathers
helped put us (American
blacks) in this condition.
"I say to the Jews — your
fathers helped put black
people in this condition.
"I say to Africa — some of
our own people helped put
us in this condition.
"Europe and America —
they were all in a conspiracy
to destroy a people."
"I am saying to the
Jewish people, God chose
you to be a light to the Gen-
tiles and you failed your re-
sponsibility. (And) God took
the sceptre away from the
children of Israel and gave
it to the children of the pro-
phet Ishmael."
But according to Far-
rakhan, even the Arabs
fumbled the job. And now it
is someone else's turn, be-
cause "God has always cho-
sen a people."

S.

David
Lebenbom,
president, and Alvin Kush-
ner of the Jewish Commu-
nity Council of Metropoli-
tan Detroit, and Richard
Lobenthal, Michigan
regional director of the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith, were asked by
The Jewish News to com-
ment on Farrakhan's
speech.
Lebenbom said, "The
(Jewish Community) Coun-
cil had hoped that the Rev.
Farrakhan would follow in
the footsteps of the Rev.
Jesse Jackson so as to con-
tinue the national healing
process to mend the rift be-
tween blacks and Jews.
"Fortunately, the spirit of
cooperation between the
black and Jewish com-
munities in Detroit, which
has existed for many years,
remains strong and
healthy. We would hope
that the Detroit spirit will

serve as a model for those
who would seek to do other
than strengthen our na-
tion's commitment to reli-
gious
freedom
and
tolerance."
Asked how he felt the De-
troit Jewish community
should respond to Far-
rakhan's remarks, Council
Executive Director Al
Kushner said, "You can
never ignore
anti-
Semitism. It has to be dealt
with and it has to be re-
sponded to," adding, "The
response lies in establishing
better relations in the
inter-ethnic community so
that Farrakhan and his
bigotry will carry little or no
weight.
"It is a case of reminding
the public, the general pub-
lic as well as the Jewish
community, that such forces
have to be dealt with."
Lobenthal said, "Far-
rakhan distinguished him-
self once again as a premier
anti-Semite."
Ih response to Far-
rakhan's charge that Jews
were responsible for out-
rages ranging from high
rents to blacks, to Vanessa
Williams losing her Miss
America crown, Lobenthal
said the Black Muslim
leader "engaged in patently
absurd and anti-Semitic
rhetoric before an all-black
audience. He singled out
Jews for criticism he didn't
dare level at Christians or
Moslems."
Before the Jewish com-
munity reacts to such re-
marks,
Lobenthal
cautioned, they must re-
member that "the guy (Far-
rakhan) only has about
10,000 followers out of 20
million blacks in the United
States and he doesn't repre-
sent anything but a splinter
faction, who before Jesse
Jackson's (Presidential)
candidacy, wasn't even
heard of in the black com-
munity."

Chasidic Jews determined
eligible for SBA loans

New York — The Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith hailed proposed regu-
lations issued last month by
the U.S. Department of
Commerce that include
Chasidic Jews as eligible for
small-business loans to dis-
advantaged groups. The
regulations formalize pro-
cedures for determining
eligibility.
Nathan Perlmutter,
ADL's national director,
said the new regulations
"correct an inequity in
which Chasidic jews had
been discriminated against,

despite their difficult eco-
circumstances
nomic
stemming from religious be-
liefs and customs."
The proposed regulations
reaffirm a 1974 finding by
the Commerce Department
that Chasidic Jews are so-
cially and economically dis-
advantaged and as such are
eligible for assistance to
minority businesses.
The proposed regulations
will be finalized ^ger the
Commerce Depa, ant has
the opportunity to hear and
evaluate comments from in-
terested groups.
