China Is A Conduit
For PLO Message

WOLF BLITZER

Special to The Jewish News

Washington — Secretary of State
George Shultz and his top aides were
clearly surprised during their recent
visit to China when a Foreign
Ministry official handed Shultz a
diplomatic note from PLO Chairman

United Nations Security Council. The
note also said the PLO would be will-

tions 242 and 338 provided that all
other UN General Assembly resolu-
tions on the Palestinian question
were also cited.

would lead to renewed dialogues and

denominations.

Holocaust," Rabbi Greenberg asked a
United Jewish Appeal young leader-
ship breakfast meeting, can Jewish
groups ignore each other and foster
hatred for other Jewish groups or
denominations?
He said he was shaken by the
"Who is a Jew?" question in Israel.
The issue of diversity within Judaism
has led Greenberg to the formation of
CLAL — The National Jewish Center
for Learning and Leadership and his
award-winning article last year,
published in The Jewish News.
Greenberg wants Jews to do for
themselves what Jews and Catholics
have accomplished for each other.
"Fifty years ago, the two religions
were at each other's throats. Jews
were accused of killing Christ.
Judaism was described as a hateful
