European Sigh of Relief
At Rudolph Hess' Death

Paris (JTA) — Western
Europe, with a few rare excep-
tions, heaved a sigh of relief
at the death of Rudolf Hess,
Hitler's former deputy, who
died Monday at the age of 93
in the British military
hospital near the four-power
Spandau war crimes prison
where he had been serving a
life term. Reports say Hess
probably committed suicide
with an electrical cord.
Many West European
leaders had given in to. West
German requests and backed
a demand for Hess' release;
others who had not gone that
far feared that his continued
detention risked turning him
into a martyr strengthening
the neo-Nazis and other ex-
treme right-wing movements.
The three Western powers,
America, France and Britain,
had been in favor of his
release on humanitarian
reasons because of his age.
The Soviet Union had always
opposed such a move. Moscow
released a statement Tuesday
reiterating its position: no
pardon and no forgetfulness
for Nazi crimes.
After the announcement of
his death, neo-Nazis and
members of right-wing
organizations demonstrated
in several West German
cities. Skin heads, young
toughs with close cropped
hair, placed a wreath of red
and white carnations at the
foot of the Spandau prison
wall in West Berlin.
In Hamburg, demonstrators
marched Monday night on
the British and American
Consulates carrying torches
and posters reading "Rudolf
Hess — a Martyr for Peace."
In Frankfurt, , two men in
their early twenties threw
gasoline bombs on U.S.
military vehicles. No one was
injured and there were no
damages.
The French press and
television stressed Tuesday,
in the words of Le Monde,
that "40 years after the war
many in West Germany feel
that the time has come for the
world to take into considera-
tion the new Germany and
often considered (Hess con-
tinued imprisonment) as a
form of relentless revenge."
Nazi-hunter Serge Klars-
feld said he was glad Hess
died behind bars. Klarsfeld,
who spoke on television, said
"Hess played an effective role
in the rise of Nazism and in
measures taken against the
Jews. He was a close aide to
Hitler and sought to help him
by trying to negotiate a

separate peace treaty with
Britain. Had he died free, he
would probably have been
surrounded by the media and
editors.

Israel Updates
Phantom Jet

Tel Aviv (JTA) — An up-
dated version of the Phantom
aircraft, which has been in
service with the Israel Air
Force for some 16 years, was
presented to the press last
week.
The updated version of the
plane, with new Israeli-
developed electronic systems
said to equal those on Amer-
ican F-16s just delivered in
Israel, is intended to extend
the Phantom's operational
life by 15 to 20 years.
The first model of the up-
dated Phantom was test-
flown by its Israeli Air Force
designers for the first time
Tuesday. A second prototype
will be flown by next March.
The first squadron of improv-
ed Phantom 2000s are due for
delivery to the Air Force by
the early 1990s.
Several foreign air forces
are reported to be interested
in the updated Phantom.
About 2,000 original versions
of the Phantoms are still fly-
ing around the world. Up-
grading them may be a
cheaper alternative for many
countries than buying the
next generation of sophis-
ticated fighter aircraft.

Judge Resigns

Fort Lauderdale (JTA) — A
state appellate court judge
said he will not renew his
membership in B'nai B'rith
because the organization is
technically discriminatory in
admitting only Jews.
Judge Hugh Glickstein will
resign from the Jewish ser-
vice organization after 25
years in order to meet the
guidelines he 'promoted that
the state's judges be screened
for membership in
discriminatory clubs.
Glickstein said he hadn't
considered that his B'nai
B'rith membership was pro-
blematic until a reporter ask-
ed him- about the Jews-only
membership. "It hit me like a
ton of bricks," he commented.
But Louise Shure, regional
director of the Palm Beach
County Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, said
B'nai B'rith membership
restrictions are constitutional
and that Glickstein need not
resign.
