Hatred, Apartheid
And Late Lessons

Concerning your editorial, "A
Late Lesson," of Aug. 14. Before
the tragic date of Sept. 1, 1939,
the invasion of Poland, it is be-
yond my imagination to con-
ceive of a comparable situation
regarding South Africa.
First, a majority of the people
in the world, including South
African, are against the idiotic
nonsense of apartheid. They are
able to travel abroad and to
fight physically and politically.
The German apparatus was
used to destroy and murder
many minority people, including
six million Jews, of which one
million were children. The Nazi
criminals scientifically, method-
ically, and systematically gassed
most of European Jewry.
Historically, many observant
Jews and Zionists didn't claim
equal rights in the Diaspora, in
spite of the Emancipation by
Napoleon, in order to avoid as-
similation.

Norman Horowitz

Anti-Semitism
And The Farmers

On the night of Aug. 15, the
ABC News "20/20" program

broadcast nationally a segment
designed to promote the notion
that desperate American far-
mers are being attracted in
large and increasing numbers
(numbers never indicated) to the
neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic ideology

of the Identity churches, the
Aryan Nations and other hate
groups. We found the report,
"Seeds of Hate," no matter good
intentions, to be sensationalistic
and thusly, misleading.
ADL Fact Finding has closely
monitored and continues to in-
vestigate the extremists' efforts
to recruit support among far-
mers. We have found that thus
far this campaign has been
largely unsuccessful — a far cry
from the "20/20" implications.
We aren't alone in this con-
cern. I enclose copies of several
leading television critics' judge-
ments
The Anti-Defamation League
will continue its conscientious
monitoring and responsible
evaluation of neo-Nazi and other
extremist activities in the farm
belt as anywhere else.

Nathan Perlmutter,

National Director,
Anti-Defamation League
of Ynai !Trial

This writer has tried hard to
follow Irving Greenberg in the
issue of Aug. 16, but without
success. Greenberg starts out
fair enough by referring to
Jewish unity as being a cor-
nerstone of our nation, and then
he goes out on a limb, so that it
is difficult to make out what he
is driving after and where he
stands with respect to the is-
sues, such as Who is a Jew, the
importance of Halachic adher-
ence for the purity of our people
and the admixtures of non-Jews
through the leniency of the so-
called liberals, which would
tend to dilute our racial quality.
Those who are the liberals in
our adherences may well be
asked, liberal at whose expense?
Assimilation has as often as not
been the ultimate development
of those who would criticize the
traditional branch of our people.
At any rate, Mr. Greenberg
left me somewhat at sea as to
both his thesis and position.

Meir Kahane is considered a
Jewish Hitler by a large part of
the world: a racist hate-monger
t who's not only testing the limits
of his own people but the appli-
cation of "democracy" in Israel
also. Two statements in your
Aug. 23 front-page article, "The
World of Meir Kahane," beg the
logical responses.:
Kahane's statement, "Judaism
is not compatible with Western
humanism and democracy,"
should be counteracted with the
outlawing of racism by all the
world's democracies to prevent
followers of Kahane's racist phi-
losophy from spreading their
hatred.
Secondly, the statement
"Media coverage, no matter how
negative, gives (Kahane) an air
of respectability" should be
counteracted with an extension
of the definition of "freedom of
the press" to include freedom
from racism, sexism and war
propaganda to protect all the
peoples of the world.
Giving this person and his
anti-human beliefs such front-
page prominence in your paper,
no matter how negative the ar-
ticle, challenges the very con-
cept of "democracy," "freedom of
the press" and your own motiva-
tion for raising this person's "air
of respectability."
