Critics Blast U.S.-
Soviet Lawyers' Link

New York (JTA) — Efforts
to break off an agreement be-
tween the American Bar
Association (ABA) and a gov-
ernmentguided Soviet
lawyers group were defeated
last week at its convention
here. This followed a vigorous
debate in which the Soviet
organization was denounced
by supporters and opponents
of the agreement alike for
fostering anti-Semitism and
human rights abuses.
The cooperation agreement
between the ABA and the
Association of Soviet
Lawyers (ASL) had been
strongly criticized by ABA
members and Jewish organi-
zations because of the Soviet
group's reputation as a pro-
paganda tool of the Kremlin.
The ASL has been involved
most notably in the publica-
tion of anti-Zionist and anti-
Semitic writings.
The ASL recently pub=
lished, together with the
Anti-Zionist Committee Of
the Soviet Public, The White
Book, which bitterly de-
nounces Soviet Jews who
seek emigrate.
Delegates to the convention
defeated a resolution to
abrogate the accord in a voice
vote after the ABA's policy-
setting body, the House of
Delegates, had recommended
that the agreement be main-
tained. But the 433-member
House is still scheduled to .
vote on two resolutions pro-
viding that "appropriate op-
portunities" be taken to raise
human rights issues in dis-
cussions with the ASL.
The vote in the House of
Delegates to maintain the ac-
cord came after its propon-
ents acknowledged that the
ASL had a poor record on
human rights.
"I don't think that any of
us are under any illusions
about the ASL, " said Judge
Frank Kaufman, a member of
the steering committee on
ABA-Soviet relations, to the
433-member body. "If there's
anything in the world that is
close to or even maybe worse
than the Goebbels propagan-
da ministry, it's the ASL."
But Kaufman maintained
that "if you're going to talk
on an organized basis with
Soviet lawyers, you're going
to have to talk with the ASL."
At an earlier forum, ABA
president William Falsgraf
said it would be " 'unthinka-
ble" and "morally reprehensi-
ble" for the American lawyers
organization to "pass up the
opportunity to bring atten-
tion to human rights issues"
in talks, made possible by the
agreement, with "the top
leadership of the Soviet
Government."
The controversial agree-
ment, called a "Declaration of
Cooperation," was adopted by
the ABA Board of Governors

two months ago to replace a
much criticized accord con-
cluded in May, 1985. The new
version includes statements
on the commitment of both
lawyers organizations to the
rule of law. The agreement
provides exchanges of visits,
joint seminars, an exchange
of publications and other
cooperative activities.

Jerusalem (JTA) — The
Inner Cabinet's approval of a
draft agreement with Egypt
increased prospects that a
summit meeting will take
place soon between Israeli
Premier Shimon Peres and
Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak.
The Inner Cabinet voted
8-2 to accept an agreement
hammered out over several
months by delegations from
the two countries. It would
send the dispute between the
two nations over ownership of
Taba, a 25-acre strip of Sinai
beachfront, to international
arbitration.
At the end of the eight-
hour session, Peres tele-
phoned Mubarak to inform
him of the - approval. "We
shall see you soon," he said.
Mubarak was reported to re-
spond, "Inshallah" (God Will-
ing).
According to Arab press
reports, Egypt already has
designated Izzat Abdul Latif,
former ambassador to Sudan,
as its new ambassador to Is-
rael. Egypt withdrew its
envoy to Tel Aviv in 1982
during Israel's war in Leba-
non.

New York (JTA) — Kurt
Waldheim's handwritten in-
telligence notations are con-
tained in a secret wartime
German document that pin-
points the vulnerability of
anti-Nazi forces in Greece. It
is the first Nazi intelligence
document located bearing
Waldheim's own handwritten
jottings and directly con-
tradicts his repeated asser-
tions that he never was a
German intelligence officer.
The document, found by
World Jewish Congress re-
searchers at the U.S. Na-
tional Archives, shows Wal-
dheim — in handwritten
entries — modifying a secret
intelligence report so as to
challenge its assessment of
the strength of the Greek
anti-Nazi resistance. Wal-
dheim asserted, in this docu-
ment for his army's com-
mand, that the Greeks were
significantly weaker than the
intelligence report indicated.
