New tactics pushed for the PLO?

Italy urges diplomatic approach

Rome (JTA) — Italy will
encourage the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization whenever it
employs diplomatic means to
achieve the Palestinian right to
self-determination but will con-
demn it when it resorts to "unac-
ceptable methods," Foreign
Minister Giuglio Andreotti told
the foreign affairs committee of
the Italian house of representa-
tives last week.
Andreotti spoke in reply to
sharp criticism from opposition
members of Parliament, notably
Republican Giorgio La Malfa who
presided over the session. They
objected vigorously to the meeting
Andreotti and Premier Bettino
Craxi had with PLO chief Yasir
Arafat in Tunis earlier this month
— at the initiative of the Italian

La Malfa noted that Arafat is
"not the heaad of a government
but a representative of a political
movement for many years con-
nected with acts of armed battle in
the territory of a State friendly to
us (Israel) and above all he has not
yet completely abandoned his use
of the language of arms — if it is
true that in a declaration pub-
lished the day after Arafat's meet-
ing with 'Italian government
representatives, he declared that
the rifle remains the only means
for obtaining the liberation of
Andreotti was called before the
committee to explain his conten-
tion that the PLO, in the past
year, has shown definite signs of
moderation. He said that the

meeting of the Palestine National
Council (PNC) in Amman Jordan
last month — convened by Arafat
— was "a politically important
though not a decisive turn in the
history of the PLO."
Andreotti added that his and
Craxi's "meeting with Arafat
convinced us that the fulfillment
of the Palestinian right to self-
determination must be
encouraged every time the PLO
makes an effort to use diplomacy,
while it must be condemned when

these aspirations are defended by
unacceptable methods.
"The foundations of diplomacy
that lead. to cooperation between
Israelis and Palestinians are
based on reciprocal recognition,
evacuation from the occupied ter-
ritories and creation of confedera-
tive ties between Palestinians
and Jordanians," Andreotti said.
The latter is similar to one of the
points of President Reagan's Sept.
1, 1982 Middle East peace pro-

Improved ties urged

Rome (JTA) — An "absolutely
privileged" position must be given
the Jewish community and tradi-
tion in interreligious dialogue,
Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini of
Milan told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency here last week.
He also spoke of how interpreta-
tions of Biblical text injurious to
Jews can be removed from Chris-
tian teaching.
Cardinal Martini was inter-
viewed after releasing to the press
a new Papal dialogue, a "post-
synodal apostolic exhortation on
reconciliation and penance"
which examines conflict in
human society on all levels.
He explained to the JTA that
three of the four Biblical passages
claimed as basic source material
for the Papal document — Genesis
3, Genesis 11 and Psalm 50 — are
passages from the Jewish scrip-
tures, clear evidence, he said, of
Christianity's Jewish heritage.
The Cardinal recalled the
statement he made last July at a
meeting of the International Con-
ference for Christians and Jews at
Vallombrosa, on the necessity "to
remove tendentious or injurious
interpretations of Biblical texts
from Christian teaching." Asked
how, in light of the new Papal
document's stated aim of "promot-
ing sincere ecumenical dialogue"
this could be implemented, Mar-
tini said he believed it must be
done on two levels.
One was "the idea of dialogue
. . . the capacity to understand the
other's values and point of view.
And this is true — a fortiori — in a
sense of absolute privilege for the
Jewish community and for the
Jewish roots of Christian his-
He pointed out that "passages of
the Old Testament are at the basis
of this vision of man." The second
level, according to Cardinal Mar-
tini, is centered around the

"It is within catechistical
(teaching) that we must work at
the enlightenment . . . Catechism
must be presented with care, with
attention, with precision, bound
to the word of God. As guidelines
we already have, for example, the
norms laid down by the
Secretariat for Christian Unity
which are an invitation to this
type of catechism, and which can
be applied through the indica-
tions in this document of apostolic
exhortation," the Cardinal said.
"It seems to me," he added,
"that these are the two lines we
must emphasize in our progress

toward knowledge, throwing light
on ambiguities — if only in ter-
minology — and then in giving
full value to the Jewish heritage,
to Jewish culture, to Jewish com-
passion and piety."
The Papal document examines
conflicts between peoples, be-
tween religions and social classes.
It emphasizes individual respon-
sibility as opposed to the passive
acceptance of evils by shifting the
blame on abstractions such as
"society" or "class.'
While the document admits
that injustice everywhere and in
every form must be fought, it does
not consider hate or violence as

Israel bars
German's entry

Jerusalem (JTA) — Israel has
barred entry to Brigitte Heinrich,
member of a delegation of the
West German Green Party, plan-
ning to visit Israel during their
tour of the Middle East. Heinrich
reportedly had been convicted in
Germany for cooperating with the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
The Green Party, which won
representation in the Bundestag
for the first time last year, is re-
garded as pro-Arab and un-
friendly to Israel. Its delegation is
due here next week but the
Foreign Ministry plans to keep
the visit as low key as possible.

Three injured
in bus bombing

Tel Aviv (JTA) — A hand gre-
nade tossed at a bus near a veget-
able market early Monday eve-
ning sent three people to the hos-
pital for treatment of slight
wounds and shock. Police cor-
doned off the area in central Tel
Aviv to search for the assailants.
The bus was waiting at a stop on
Hashmonayim Street outside the
wholesale vegetable market at 7
p.m. local time when a grenade
flew over the wall that surrounds
the market. Eyewitnesses said
they saw several men running
from the scene. All the bus win-
dows were shattered, littering a
wide area with broken glass.
