U.S. liberalism analyzed

New York (JTA) — A leading
Labor Zionist said last week that
the liberal community in the
United States "have not deserted
the Jewish cause" and rejected the
accusation that the liberals will
abandon Israel in favor of sup-
porting the Third World. Dr. Ezra
Spicehandler, president of the
Labor Zionist Alliance (LZA), also
called upon American Jews not to
play down their liberalism just
beause there is a Republican Ad-
ministration in the White House.
In remarks prepared for deliv-
ery the opening session of 26th
triennial convention of the LZA
last week, Spicehandler said,
"Liberals in Congress have a bet-
ter record on Israel than conser-
vatives. This holds true for the
vast majority of black con-
gressmen; they do support Israel."
He pointed out that the anti-
Semitic and anti-Israel state-
ments by Louis Farrakhan, a
black Muslim leader, do not re-
present the vast majority of
blacks.
Commenting on last year's
presidential election, the LZA
leader said, "Appeals to Jews by
neo-conservatives such as Irving
Kristol and others went almost
unheeded. The vast majority of
American Jews voted liberal. The
neo-conservatives failed to de-
liver the Jewish vote." According
to a number of exit polls, includ-
ing those conducted by , ABC-TV,
CBS-TV and the American
Jewish Congress, 67-70 percent of
the Jewish electorate voted for
Democratic presidential candi-
date Walter Mondale.
Regarding President Reagan,
Spicehandler said that "to his cre-
dit, the President, though he is a
conservative, is not going to at-
tempt to bribe the American
Jewish community with aid to Is-
rael. He supports Israel because
he likes Israei a.iiu uelieves it is an
ally of the U.S." But he added,
"Jews have the right to applaud
the Administration when it is
right and attack it when it is
wrong."
He called on the LZA to "con-
tinue its belief that the federal
government should not cut wel-
fare or education funds in a period

Exiled Czech
author cited

Jerusalem (JTA) — The exiled
Czech writer, Milan Konderra,
was named the winner of this
year's Jerusalem Prize for uphold-
ing individual freedom in society.
The award will be presented to
him by Jerusalem Mayor Teddy
Kollek during the annual book
fair in May.
Konderra, who left Czechos-
lovakia ten years ago and now
lives in Paris, was selected, ac-
cording to Prof. Natan
Rotenstreich, chairman of the
award committee, because his
books uphold the rights of indi-
viduals in society.
The judges noted that Konder-
ra's exile and his eschewal of any
political identity enabled him to
observe the power of the totalita-
rian regime and the powers of the
affluent Westem sagieties a§ wgil.

of time in which the income of an
increasing number of fellow citi-
zens has fallen below the poverty
line."
Spicehandler also urged the
LZA to be in the vanguard of sup-
porting liberal forces in the U.S.
and in Israel. He contended that
reports of the demise of liberalism
are highly exaggerated both in
the U.S. and in Israel.
Spicehandler is a professor of
Hebrew literature at Hebrew
Union College-Jewish Institute of
Religion (HUC-JIR), and a
member of the Council of the
World Zionist Organization. He
was a Visiting Fellow at the Ox-
ford Center for Post-Graduate
Hebrew Studies at Oxford Uni-
versity in England. He served as
director and then as dean of the
Jerusalem school of HUC-JIR.

Man disputes
Holocaust in
Canada trial

Toronto — A German-born
commercial artist is using his
trial here on charges of "publish-
ing false news" to publicize his
claim that the Holocaust never
happened.
Ernst Zundel, 46, described by
the Canadian Jewish Congress
and other Jewish groups as a
major distributor of anti-Semitic
literature, went on trial last week
in York County Court on charges
stemming from a 32-page pam-
phlet titled "Did Six Million
Really Die?" and a letter urging
Moslems to be aware of what he
claimed was a conspiracy among
Zionists, communists and
Freemasons. Both do6uments
were published by Zundel and dis-
tributed throughout Canada. If
convicted, he faces the possibility
of a two-year prison sentence.
Zundel reportedly turned the
breaks in his trial into mini-press
conferences in which he contin-
ually advanced his Holocaust-
revisionist theories. "The pillars
of the Holocaust legend are fal-
ling," he told reporters outside the
courtroom Friday.
Zundel, who has lived in
Canada for nearly 30 years but is
still a West German citizen,
claims that fewer than one mil-
lion Jews, and not the generally
accepted six million, died under
the Nazis. No Jews were sys-
tematically exterminated during
World War II, according to the de-
fendant.
