Begin to undergo
prostate surgery

Jerusalem (JTA) — Former
Premier Menachem Begin was
scheduled to undergo surgery this
week for prostate gland trouble. A
spokesman for Shaare Zedek
Hospital in Jerusalem, where he
has been undergoing tests for sev-
eral days, announced officially
that Begin is not suffering from
any malignant illness, and that
the hospital was recommending
the surgery.
As is common practice, the hos-
pital did not formally specify the
nature of the case, beyond deny-
ing categorically the reports —
especially in the tabloidHadashot
— that Begin has cancer.
But reliable Israeli sources say
Begin has prostate problems and
the operation recommended
would be carried out under local_
anesthetic. The hospital said
Begin is spending his time there
with members of his family or
reading.

Washington (JTA) — The Se-
nate has approved a resolution
calling on President Hafez Assad
of Syria immediately to "permit
all members of the Syrian Jewish
community to emigrate from
Syria to the United States."
The concurrent resolution, ap-
proved unanimously last week,
introduced by Sen. Daniel Moyni-
han (D-NY), noted that Assad
stated in an interview in 1976
that he would allow the members
of the Syrian Jewish community
to emigrate to the U.S.
The resolution also noted Sy-
rian restrictions on travel abroad
by Syrian Jews, as well as laws
requiring that all Jews bear spe-
cial identification cards, and re-
strictions on Jewish rights of in-
heritance. The Syrian govern-
ment forbids all members of the
Syrian Jewish community the
right to emigrate.
International attention focused
on the estimated 4,000-member
Syrian Jewish community when
last December, Lillian Antabi
Abadi, a 25-year-old Syrian
Jewish woman, was found brut.:
ally murdered in Aleppo along
with her 6-year-old son, Joseph,
and her 3-year-old daughter,
Sandy.
If the authorities in Syria de-
sire to improve the currently poor
relationship with this country,"
Moynihan said, "then one way to
do it would be to permit those
members of the Syrian Jewish
community who desire to do so to
emigrate to the United States."
Meanwhile, the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee last week
also approved a resolution spon-
sored by Committee chairman
Charles Percy and
Claiborne Pell (D-RI) condemning
the infringement of religious
freedom by Warsaw Pact coun-
tries. The resolution charges the
Soviet Union with having "se-
verely curtailed the right of Jews
to study and practice their reli-
gion and to adhere to their reli-
gious traditions" and urges their
right to emigrate.
