Anti-Semitism

Continued from Page 4

When blacks picket and with-
hold their business from an
organization charged with dis-
crimination, it is a civil rights
protest. When Jews act simi-
larly, it is called economic
blackmail.
The point is Jews have not
created a political environment
in which protests against anti-
Semitism are politically or
psychologically acceptable. And
it is time to change that politi-
cal atmosphere. Jews need not
fear increasing anti-Semitism by
confronting it. Unfortunately,
anti-Semites need no additional
fodder for their hatred.
Anti-Semitism has lived
through the ages and will con-
tinue to do so. The statistics re-
leased annually by the Anti-
Defamation League on van-
dalism of Jewish institutions as
indicators of the rise or decrease
of anti-Semitism are at best
superficial barometers. They do
not reveal the deep-seated
bigotry and hatred of Jews
which is not easily measured.
The most effective fertilizer of
anti-Semitism is not activism
but benign neglect. Confronta-
tion brings the disease into the
public limelight where it can be
dealt with. Exposure creates de-

bate and forces public officials to
take positions. If blacks had not
forced the issue, the schools in
the South might still be segre-
gated today. And even assuming
that some progress would have
been made regardless of the
civil rights movement, it cer-
tainly would not have been as
rapid.
The concept of assimilation to
pacify anti-Semites is self-
defeating at best and degrading
at worst. It gives support to the
anti-Semites who then can add
the lack of self-respect to their
liturgy of charges.
The question is not whether
confrontation is effective. The
question is not whether Jews
should assume a more aggres-
sive posture in exposing anti-
Semitism as forcefully as they
can.
The question is: will Jews
ever understand the need for a
loud and sustained voice which
constantly reminds the world in
the most forceful way possible
that anti-Semitism is, unfortu-
nately, alive and well and must
be defeated.
And finally, if Jews come to
understand the moral impera-
tive of outright confrontation,
the question is when?

Soviet Jewry Group
Responds To Visa Report

New York (JTA) — The Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry was scheduled last week
to adopt a statement advocating
a quicker response to support
relaxed trade restrictions with
the Soviet Union in the case of
"significant shifts" in Jewish
emigration from that country.
The decision came amid official
reports that about half the 117
persons slated for emigration
from the Soviet Union shortly
are Jewish.
Executive Director Jerry
Goodman said the NVSJ is in no
way changing its policy which
supports trade restrictions
linked to Jewish emigration
under the terms of Jackson-
Vanik amendment.
NCSJ will support relaxing
trade restrictions only if Jewish
emigration increases singnif-
icantly, continues to ncrease,
and if obstacles to emigration,
such as arbitrary arrests, are
removed, Goodman asserted.
The State Department an-
nounced that about half of the
117 people on a list of those who
will be permitted to join family
members in America are Jews.
The 117 are members of 36
divided families with some
relatives already living in the
U.S.
Glenn Richter of the Student
Struggle for Soviet Jew (SSSJ)
here said he has not seen the list
of names but received word that
at least one Jewish family is a
well known Leningrad refusenik
family.
Relatives of the family in the
United States asked SSSJ not

to release the family's name.
But Richter described one as a
former Hebrew teacher and
Jewish activist. He said the
family is "Baal Tshuvah" or
newly observant Jews. One
Soviet Jewry activist who saw
the list said the names are not
recognizable or well-known
refuseniks, Richter said.
The announcement that
another prominent family of
Jewish activits will be permitted
to emigrate to Israel came at the
same time the State Depart-
ment released information on
the 36 divided families.
Although the case is not con-
nected to the 36 families, the
Soviet Union has granted exit
visas for Boris and Anna Gulko,
both former chess champions of
the Soviet Union, and their son,
David. The couple first re-
quested exit visas in 1978 and
staged demonstrations in down-
town Moscow where they live.
In 1984, 1,140 Jews left the
Soviet Union, according to
SSSJ. In the first five months of
1986, 329 Jews left.

Soviet Emigres
At Record Low

New York (JTA) — The Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry reported Monday that a
total of 49 Jews emigrated from
the Soviet Union during May,
believed to be among the lowest
monthly totals since the Soviet
Union began restricting Jewish
emigration. Seventeen of the 49
Jews went to Israel.
