Wiese! Accepts 1986
Nobel Peace Prize

Oslo (JTA) — Elie Wiesel,
the author, lecturer and
humanitarian who has
devoted most of his life's work
to bearing witness to the
Holocaust, received the 1986
Nobel Peace Prize here last
week and, in his acceptance
speech, urged help for the
Palestinian people, for whom
terrorism was no answer.
He also linked the internal
exile of Soviet dissident An-
drei Sakharov, the denial of
Polish Solidarity leader Lech
Walesa's right to dissent, and
the imprisonment of Black
South African civil rights
leader Nelson Mandela as
"disgraces" of identical
magnitude.
"Human rights are being
violated on every continent.
More people are oppressed
than free," the 58-year-old
Wiesel, a survivor of Ausch-
witz, told the assembled
dignitaries from all parts of
the world. "And then, too,
there are the Palestinians to
whose plight I am sensitive
but whose methods I de-
plore," Wiesel said.
"Violence and terrorism are
not the answer. Something
must be done about their suf-
fering and soon," he said. "I
trust Israel, for I have faith in
the Jewish people. Let Israel
be given a chance, let hatred
and danger be removed from
her horizons, and there will be
peace in and around the Holy
Land."
Wiesel added, "It would be
unnatural for me not to make
Jewish priorities my own:
Israel, Soviet Jewry, Jews in
the Arab lands. But there are
others as important . . . Apar-
theid is, in my view, as abhor-
rent as anti-Semitism .. .
Wherever men or women are
persecuted because of their
race, religion of political
views, that place must — at
that moment — become the
center of the universe."
Wiesel, born in Rumania
and now a U.S. citizen, is a
member and former head of
the United State Holocaust
Memorial Council. He is
credited with being the first
to use the term "Holocaust"
to describe the Nazi exter-
mination of six million Jews.
Wiesel spoke of the Holo-
caust in his acceptance
speech. He was invited to
bring his 14-year old son,
Shlomo-Elisha, to the podium
as a demonstration of Jewish
survival. Wiesel put his hand
on his son's shoulder, then
donned a yarmulke for a brief,
simple prayer before begin-
ning his acceptance speech.
Ibuching on the Holocaust
victims, Weisel asked, "Do I
have the right to represent
the multitudes who have per-
ished? Do I have the right to
accept this great honor on
their behalf? I do not. That
would be presumptuous. No

one may speak for the dead,
no one may interpret their
mutilitated drams and vi-
sions."
Instead, said Wiesel who,
according to news reports,
fought back tears as he ac-
cepted the Novel Peace Prize,
he spoke "as one who has
emerged from that kingdom
of the night . . . This honor
belongs to all the survivors,
to their children and, through
us, to the Jewish people with
whose destiny I have always
identified."
Wiesel said he plans to use
the US $250,000 Nobel Prize
money to establish a Human
Rights Foundation, the first
act of which would be to
organize a conference on com-
batting hatred.
Egil Aarvik, chairman of
the Norwegian Nobel Corn-
mittee, said in presenting the
Peace Prize to Wiesel that it
was given "In recognition of
this particular human spirit's
victory over the power of
death and degradation and as
a support to the rebellion of
good against evil in the
world."
Wiesel said at a press con-
ference before the award
ceremonies that he was op-
timistic about his forthcom-
ing meeting with Soviet
leader Mikhail Gorbachev to
discuss easing restrictions on
the emigration of Jews and
non-Jews from the USSR.

Israel Sets Up
Diplomatic Office
In Greece

Athens (JTA) — Israel
established its first full-
fledged diplomatic mission in
Greece last week, headed by
Moshe Gilboa, a senior For-
eign Ministry official from
Jerusalem with the rank of
Ambassador.
Gilboa, 56, presented his
credentials to Greek Foreign
Minister Karolos Papoulias at
a private meeting. Greece has
never extended de jure recog-
nition to Israel. For that
reason, the Israeli envoy
presented his letter of ac-
creditation to the Foreign
Minister rather than to the
President of the republic.
Greece, moreover, has taken
a consistently pro-Arab stand
in the Middle East conflict
and has, in fact, refused to go
along with its European Corn-
munity (EEC) partners' deci-
sion to impose sanctions
against Syria for its involve-
ment in recent international
terrorist acts.
The upgrading of Israel's
representation in Athens
from consular level to diplo-
matic mission, coupled with
other recent manifestations
of Greek-Israeli cooperation
represents a substantial ad-
vance in their relations.
