ing chairman of National Ac-
tion for Soviet Jewry.
Franklin said there is a
future for Jews in a democra-
tic non-racial South Africa.
He denied that Jews were
fleeing that country. He said
that while many are leaving,
it is not "a wave."
South Africa has about
110,000 Jews, down from
about 125,000 ten years ago,
he said. He stressed that most
Jews see their future in that
country and won't leave,
either because of the curren-
cy regulations which allow an
emigrant to take only
$30,000 or, more importantly,
"people have got at-

the community has a false
sense of "complacency" and
does not realize majority rule
will eventually be achieved,
either peacefully through
pressure from the West or a
change of public opinion
among whites, or as he fears,
through violent means.
Franklin said that black
leaders "categorically state"
that "the situation will not

rule is achieved.
South African Jews who
fear of majority rule, as many
do, should visit neighboring
Zimbabwe, where a "radical
government" is in power,
Franklin said. He visited the
country, which had a Jewish
population of some 1,000 last
"I can truthfully say that
Jews are functioning as a
community," Franklin said.
"Some said to me they don't
know why they went through
all that turmoil." Zimbabwe
has had a majority black
government since 1979.

ly against the "illusion" that
one powerful blow could solve
the Middle East conflict or
eradicate terrorism.
Addressing high school
students in Ramat Gan,
Rabin said, "We have never
had a war which ended all
wars, and we can never have
such a war. There can be no
single war or operational bat-

to think so, to create expecta-
