MICHIGAN'S LARGEST SELECTION OF

maintains that such activities
are not undetaken in countries,
like Israel, where they are
prohibited.
But Knesset members, under
severe pressure from their Or-
thodox colleagues and the Chief
Rabbinate as well as from Or-
thodox groups in the U.S., had
become nervous. The letters
from the U.S. legislators — a
form of counter pressure — may
have put their doubts to rest.
The signatories included
Reps. Lee Hamilton (D. Ind),
chairman of the House Foreign
Affairs Committee's Subcom-
mittee on Europe and the Mid-
dle East; Tom Lantos (D. Calif),
a member of the Foreign Affairs
Committee; Morris Udall (D.
Ariz); and Jack Kemp (R. N.Y.)
They acknowledged that they
are "aware of the sensitivity
which many Jews feel regarding
proselytizing," but added, "It is
our undertaking that the of-
ficials of BYU have signed an
undertaking in which (BYU)
pledges that the center will not
be used for missionary _ activ-
ities." •
BYU representatives in
Jerusalem hired a prominent
public relations firm to help
their appeal to local opinion.
They took out double page
advertisements in the leading
dailies, reprinting the Con-
gressmens' letter with all 150
signatures attached.
Bar-Sela's opinion took care of

the legal objections. It stated in
part: "The grant of the site to
the BYU accords with the terms
of its expropriation from its
original owners. The original
owners reconciled themselves
with the expropriation (for
which compensation was paid)
and with the use to which the
land is to be put. The valuation
made at the time of the ex-
propriation by government
evaluators was fair and reason-
able. The earthworks and foun-
dation-laying was done under
due statutory supervision by
archaeologists. No ancient
graves or other valuable ruins
were found. There is no confu-
sion about the size of the
original parcel of land."
All of those points had been
contested by Orthodox activists
as reasons why the government
should revoke its permit. Bar-
Sela stated that the university
campus itself — adjacent to the
Hebrew University campus — is
of no cause for concern, given
the repeated written and solemn
assurances by BYU and Mor-
mon leaders that it will not
serve for any missionary activ-
ities.
Bar-Sela found the Visitors'
Center adjacent to the campus,
more questionable. But he in-
clined to the view that adequate
assurances from BYU can be in-
cluded in the land-lease contract
with the Israel Lands Authority.
