Farrakhan, Kahane Hit

New York (JTA) — Calling
both Louis Farrakhan and Rabbi
Meir Kahane "cancers on the body
politic," the Washington repre-
sentative of the American Jewish
Committee today urged Black
leaders to denounce Farrakhan in
much the same way that Jewish
leaders have denounced Kahane.
Speaking before the Hadassah
national convention, Hyman
Bookbinder said that Farrakhan
and Kahane had no common goals
but had "much in common in their
basic intolerance and their basic
rejection of the democratic proc-
Meanwhile, the Jewish Defense
Organization denied responsibil-
ity for the fatal bombing of alleged
nazi war criminal Tom Soob-
zokov. Soobzokov, who according
to the Simon Wiesenthal Center
in Los Angeles, was a lieutenant
in the Waffen SS during the war
in a division that committed at-
rocities against Jews in Russia is
responsible for the death of nearly
100,000 Jews.

Galilee Attack

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Three
Katyusha rockets were fired
into the Galilee panhandle from
south Lebanon in two separate
incidents last weekend. There
were no casualties, but some
damage as one of the rockets
landed in a field and started a
brush fire.
Three Katyusha rockets have
landed in the Galilee since the Is-
rael Defense Force withdrew from
Lebanon earlier this year. Also,
Katyushas aimed toward Israel
have been discovered by the
Israel-backed South Lebanon
Army (SLA) inside the security
zone in south Lebanon. SLA
soldiers dismantled them before
they were used.
One of the Katyusha rockets
that landed in the Galilee
panhandle Sunday was reported
at first to have been aimed from
within the security zone in south
Lebanon. But the IDF northern
command revised that report and
said it had been fired from outside
the zone, from an area in which
both the Shiite Amal organization
and the United Nations forces
were active.

Rift Growing

Jerusalem (JTA) — Premier
Shimon Peres, and Vice Premier
Yitzhak Shamir met Friday in
Jerusalem to discuss the bitter
exchanges between Likud and
Labor ministers over the past
Much of the discussion, which
took place at Peres' private resi-
dence, was devoted to the espe-
cially harsh criticism voiced by
Minister Ariel Sharon against
Labor. Peres said he could not
think of any other example of a
minister who talked that way
about his own government.
This latest deterioration in the
relations between the two main
partners , in the national unity

Paid Up Membership Luncheon

government began earlier this
month at an Inner Cabinet ses-
sion, which discussed the flat pur-
chased by Jews in the Hebron
Casba. At the height of the argu-
ment, Shamir told Peres: "Noth-
ing makes you more angry than a
Jewish settlement," adding, "you
are conducting a white paper pol-

Bar Mitzvah

New York (JTA) — On Sep-
tember 7, the Jews of Cracow, Po-
land, will celebrate their first Bar
Mitzvah in 35 years. The Bar
Mitzvah boy will be Eric Strom,
an eighth-grader from Stamford,
Conn. Eric, his family, and their
rabbi will make the journey to
Cracow because of a request from
the leader of the Jewish commu-
nity there: "Send us a Bar
Mitzvah. Send us life," the
Cracow Jewish leader said.

Cable Car

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Interior
Minister Yitzhak Peretz, of the
religious Shas Party, has ordered
Haifa Labor Party's Mayor Arye
Gurel to halt the planned opera-
tion of the new Mount Carmel
cable car from Stella Maris to the
seashore on Saturdays and holi-
But Gerul insisted this week
that eliminating the operation on
the Sabbath and holiday would
render the enterprise uneco-
nomical and would make it dif-
ficult to find investors for the
project. Peretz contended, how-
ever, during a visit to Haifa, that
economic considerations pale into
insignificance in the face of Sab-
bath observance.
He said that "that effect of a
week-day only operation should
have been taken into considera-
tion when the plans were first
drawn up" for the Swigs-made,
ball-like gondolas to take tourists
and local residents up and down
the mountainside.


Washington (JTA) — Rabbi Ar-
thur Schneier, president of the
Appeal of Conscience Foundation,
proposed a summit conference of
religious leaders from throughout
the world to help stem the spread
of religious fanaticism which is
causing intolerance, terror and
"The purpose of such a confer-
ence would be not to discuss theol-
ogy but rather tolerance and re-
spect for differences — how to
seek it, how to teach it, how by
precept an example, to practice
it," he told reporters at the Na-
tional Press Club.
Rabbi Schneier said that the
Appeal of Conscience Foundation,
which seeks to promote religious
freedom throughout the world,
would set up a 12-member steer-
ing committee by the end of the
year to organize the. conference
which he hopes would be held in
