Warning issued at Flint meeting
on church-state separation
According to Marc A. Pearl, the
American Jewish Congress

of secular teachers in parochial
schools, and an Alabama statute
providing for vocal daily prayer in
In addition, Pearl • notes that
legislation due to come up for dis-
cussion in the coming Congres-
sional term includes a plan for
tuition tax credits for private or
parochial schools and a Constitu-
tional amendment permitting
Both Pearl and Paslov warned
that some conservative religious
groups in the United States are
attempting to erode the separa-
tion of church and state in order to
impose Christian beliefs upon
The program was sponsored by
the Flint Jewish Federation and
the University of Michigan-Flint,
in cooperation with the Jewish
Community Council of Metropoli-
tan Detroit, the Michigan Council
of Churches, and the Greater De-

ference of Christians and Jews.

A West German faction will defend charges
of anti-Semitism in its choice of candidates
Bonn (JTA) - A spokesman for
the opposition Green Party an-
nounced that its Bundestag fac-
tion will hold a special debate on
Israel and the Middle East next
month at which charges that his
party has anti-Semitic tendencies
will be throughly aired.
The Greens, at the moment, are
embarrassed by their choice of
author Luise Rinser as their can-
didate for President of the Federal
Republic, a symbolic rather than
political office. Key members of
the party's Bundestag faction
have said privately that they had
not read Rinser's books, particu-
larly one titled Mirjam which is
said to contain anti-Semitic over-
Her negative views about Jews
and Judaism became an issue in
the Israeli media and the Israel
embassy in Bonn is taking a closer
look at alleged anti-Semitism
within the Green Party, which
grew out of a movement of
pacifists and ecologists in recent
The Greens apparently were
impressed by "Rinser's record of
opposition to the Nazi regime and
brushed aside evidence that she
was initially pro-Nazi. During the
Nazi era her writings expressed
admiration for Hitler. But she had
a falling out with the Nazisand
Rinser gained prominenq.e in
post-war Germany as a left-wing
author who stressed feminist is-
sues, the search for peace and the
need to protect the environment.
But left-wing intellectuals de-
tected anti-Semitism in her writ-
ing, for example her claim that
her studies of the origins of
Jewish thought revealed some of
the-worst evils- of-modern society. -
The Greens apparently missed
this, or preferred to disregard it
when they selected her as their
candidate for the presidency.
The party is also involved in a_
bitter controversy over its delega-
tion, now visiting the Middle
East, which the Israelis have
One member of the delegation,
Brigitte Heinrich, who is also a
member of the Parliament of
Europe, was refused entry into Is-
rael when the delegation arrived
there Tuesday via Jordan. Ac-
cording to a report from Tel Aviv,
Heinrich was stopped at the Al-
lenby Bridge- and returned to
According to Israel's Deputy
Foreign Minister Roni Milo,
Heinrich was banned because she
served a 21-month prison sen-
tence for aiding Palestinian and
German terrorists. She was con-
victed by the high court in Kar-
sruhe of smuggling arms to ter-
rorists in West Germany.

Jerusalem - The Knesset
voted Tuesday to limit the par-
liamentary immunity and free-
dom of movement of MK Rabbi
The controversial, anti-Arab
MK denounced the action, which
will allow police to bar the
American-born politician from
entering potential trouble spots.
It is the first time that the Knes-
set has pre-emptively stripped a
member of his preferential rights
as an -Israeli. - . - . .
