Greek Jews
Reported OK

Washington — Members of the
Greek Jewish community "live in
peace and as full members of soci-
ety," according to Joseph
Lovinger, president of the Central
Board of Jewish Communities of
Greece.
Lovinger, who has headed the
6,000-member Greek Jewish
community since 1967, was in
Washington last month for talks
with members of Congress and
American- Jewish officials.

who ignore censorship require-
ments.
Moshe Zak, a member of the
editorial board of Ma'ariu, ex-
plains why the Israeli press is so
acquiescent towards the censor's
demands. "We are not talking
about a distant war," he says.
"Here we are in our homes, de-
fending our existence and sur-
roundedby enemies. For this
reason we appreciate and we
obey the censorship rules.
Enemy flying time to our popu-
lation centers is a few minutes.
So we still have to take precau-
tions. We started with the
danger and with the need for
censorship in the cradle and
even before our birth."
The foreign press voluntarily
agrees to censorship control be-
cause it realizes that should it
riase the anger of the IDF it
will be barred access to poten-
tial stories. Formal punishment
for ignoring the censor is not
harsh for first offenders. In the
midst of the Lebanese War in
1982, ABC transmitted an
interview with PLO chairman
Yasir Arafat from Tel Aviv be-
cause satellite links were not
available from Beirut. The
transmission was made even
though the censor had forbidden
it on the grounds that Israel did
not have to help its enemy to
prime TV time. As a result,
ABC had its satellite links sus-
pended for several weeks.
The Arab press operating
from East Jerusalem is obvi-
ously less cooperative than the
Hebrew press. All materials
must be submitted to the censor
and items which incite hatred of
Israel are frequently censored.
One censor in the Jerusalem
office defies incitement. "There
will perhaps be a report of a
road accident involving an army
truck and an Arab vehicle," he
says. "That's fine. But then an
editorial will falsely assert that
it was no accident but a deliber-
ate act to let Arabs know that
the army is around. That's in-
citement and will be censored."
Despite the tensions in the
region, Israel's press remains
relatively free. Perhaps the ul-
timate guarantee of Israel's
freedom is not so much the legal
conventions but the fact that Is-
raelis are not a discreet breed.
They enjoy talking even when it
is advisable to stay silent. This
may be a virtue or a vice, but it
makes for a lively press.
