Jerusalem (JTA) — Benyamin
Netanyahu, the Minister, or No. 2
official at the Israeli Embassy in
Washington, has been appointed
Israel's permanent representa-
tive to the United Nations and
will head the Israeli delegation at
the General Assembly under De-
puty Premier and Foreign Minis-
ter Yitzhak Shamir. (Netanyahu
was featured in an article in the
June 1 Jewish News.)
Netanyahu will succeed
Yehuda Blum, who last June con-
cluded six years as Israeli repre-
sentative to the world body. The
appointment of Netanyahu was
announced officially Sunday,
after the first weekly Cabinet
meeting of the newly installed
unity government. Acting
Cabinet Secretary Michael Nir
said the appointment was
endorsed unanimously, having
been submitted by Yitzhak
Shamir.
In political circles, it is believed
that Shamir was prompted to ap-
point Netanyahu by the young
diplomat's political patron and
mentor, Minister-Without-
Portfolio Moshe Arens. It was
Arens who brought Netanyahu,
then 33-years old, from an execu-
tive position in industry into state
service as Minister in Washing-
ton when Arens was named Am-
bassador there in 1982.
News of Netanyahu's pending
appointment to the UN was made
public, unofficially, in the wake of
private conversations between
Shamir and Arens 10 days ago in
which Shamir persuaded Arens,
against Arens' original inclina-
tion, to serve in the unity gov-
ernment as Minister-Without-
Portfolio. Arens had been Minis-
ter of Defense in the Likud gov-
ernment.
Born in Israel in 1949 and edu-
cated in the United States,
Netanyahu is the younger brother
of Yonatan Netanyahu, the Israel
Defense Force commander who

U.N. Ambassador
Benyamin Netanyahu

led and was killed in the Entebbe
rescue operation in 1976. Be-
nyamin has been the organizer of
subsequet conferences and publi-
cations on international ter-
rorism in memory of his late
brother.
Netanyahu is considered a ris-
ing star in the Herut firmament,
with a future in politics if he
chooses to go into political life.
According to informed sources,
though, he has carefully de-
veloped contacts over recent
months with Labor leaders — now
top ministers — in the hope of at-
taining the UN post.
One disappointed hopeful was
Foreign Minister legal adviser
and a former confidant of the late
Moshe Dayan, Elyakim Rubins-
tein. He claimed that he was
promised the UN position by
Shamir earlier this year. Last
week, Rubinstein, in a demon-
strative act, formally submitted
his candidacy to the Ministry's
appointments committee.
But the committee's decisions
are merely recommendations.
Shamir pushed the appointment
through the Cabinet before the
Ministry committee dealt with
the matter.

Neo-Nazi denies murder guilt
in death of publisher Levin

Bonn (JTA) — Prominent
neo-Nazi leader Karl-Heinz
Hoffmann has denied that he was
involved in the murder of Jewish
publisher Shlomo Levin and his
female companion Frida Poes-
chke on Dec. 19, 1980. He also said
he would soon make a statement
on his views about the Jewish
people, which he said, would pro-
vide evidence that he is not a
"Jew-hater."
Hoffman, the head of an ex-
tremist neo-Nazi para-military
group that called itself a sports
organization until it was out-
lawed by the authorities in 1980,
is on trial for having plotted the
murders of Levin and Poeschke,
killed in Levin's home in Er-
langen, southern Germany.
The prosecution, on the opening
day of the trial in Nuremberg last
week, claimed that the actual kil-
ling was carried out by 29-year-
old Uwe Behrendt, a member of
the Hoffmann group who commit-
ted suicide in September 1981

while in a military training camp
run by the Palestine Liberation
Organization in Lebanon.
Hoffmann admitted that he
provided Behrendt with a plane
ticket for his escape from West
Germany. But he added that the
ticket was not purchased prior to
the killing and that it was not
prearranged. Hoffmann's female
companion, Franziska Birkmann,
is accused of aiding and abetting
in the murders.
State Prosecutor Otto Horn as-
serted that Hoffmann and more
than a dozen of his supporters fled
to Lebanon to a PLO-run training
camp where they were taught to
use military hardware.
The camp was the Bir Hassan
PLO camp near Beirut, Horn
claimed. He said that while at the
camp, Hoffmann planned a series
of attacks in West Germany and
that he also wanted to "impress
the PLO leadership." The PLO
denies it has any links to the
Hoffmann or his neo-Nazi group.
