ized generosity, is that one has
the impression that each per-
son defends only a single part
of our wounded humanity —
his own. A filmmaker from the
Philippines spoke only of the
tragic situation in his country,
while a Polish dissident re-
counted the moral misery that
the Polish people endure under
the regime of Jaruzelsld. A
Chilean spoke of Chile, and
Argentinian of Argentina, a
feminist protested against
anti-feminist discrimination; a
Palestinian accused Israel and
the Jewish people of the pres-
ent massacre in Lebanon.
It is painful because we
have the right to expect from
these organizations a more
universal outlook. While fight-
ing for Russian Jews, I am
determined to take the side of
all the dissidents in the Soviet
Union. Sakharov is my hero as
much as Anatol Shcharansky;
Slepak is my brother and
Walesa my companion. In our
days, we no longer have the
right to separate victims,
favoring some at the expense
of others. All need us —for all
•we must show our solidarity,
The Boat People like the
Afghans, the starving Ethic,-
plans like the frightened
Mashes, the political pri-
soners in Siberia like the un-
fortunate Lebanese whose
agony never ceases, the
refugees from Latin-American
countries like the Palestinians
whom everyone, from West to
East, manipulates and
exploits.
It is in this sense that I tried
to make my voice heard at the
Paris symposium. I am
against violence and hatred
wherever they may originate,
but I am for the victims
wherever they are found, I
believe in Israel, I pray for an

end to the suffering of the
Palestinians, but I am against
the terrorism of the PLO. Ad-
dressing myself to the Palesti-
nian woman seated near me, I
publicly told her my hope: that
one day our two peoples will
live in peace; one day the
Jewish people will live in peace
with all peoples, including the
German people.
Alone, former prisoners
have the courage to denounce
prison everywhere; alone,
political refugees feel the need
to combat injustice in all its
forms. Alone, those who have
experienced the horrors of war
know to what extent it is ug-
ly, dangerous, and inhumane.
That is why the violation of
human rights touches us
especially: my generation
knows that any attack on
human liberty is contagious.
The enemy begins by a group
and then, from one day_to the
next, all are targeted. The op-
pressor smothers the indepen-
dence of a community and
then, without anyone's notic-
ing, all humanity risks being
swept away.
The lesson behind all that?
We are forbidden to stand
aside, Let's dare to become in-
volved in affairs which, in ap-
pearance, are not ours; they
are. As long as one man or one
woman is persecuted, some-
where on the planet, that con-
cerns us. If we turn our heads,
we admit by that our guilt.
Albert Camus was right;
between the jailor and the
prisoner, it is our duty to
choose, Not to choose is also
a choice,
A bad one,

Jerusalem (JTA) Israel has

efforts to strengthen relations
