year of Japanese. That ex-
perience, his previous YFU
participation and academic
excellence qualified him for
the exchange study program.
However, he did have to make
formal application and sub-
mit to an interview.
One of six children of
David and Micki Berg of Hun-
tington Woods, Berg said the
cost of his stay abroad totals
more than $4,000. He is being
supplemented with scholar-
ships, and his cousins, Lisa
and Hannan Lis, have
spearheaded a fund-raising
drive on his behalf. The Lises
began the drive "because we

feel it's an important cause,"
Mrs. Lis said, adding "and it's
family." More than 160 letters
have been sent to private in-
dividuals and many more to
civic groups and corporations
seeking help for Berg.
Mrs. Lis said she hopes
the letter-writing campaign
will bring enough results to
meet Berg's expenses by the
time he leaves, but if the goal
isn't met, the campaign will
continue until it is. She didn't
want him to be prevented
from going on the trip due to
lack of funds. "He's a very
bright individual. I'd like to
see him go to Japan."

Fisher said the program
would commence in the
spring. The Fresh Air Socie-
ty's goal in both projects is to
reach out to as wide a span of
Jews as possible, both
geographically and religious-
ly. FAS has hired a full-time

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The in-
filtration of three Palestinian
terrorists into Israel from Jor-
dan last week has raised
questions about security
along the normally quiescent
Israeli-Jordanian border.
Israeli authorities still
believe King Hussein is doing
his best to prevent terrorist
activity from Jordanian soil,
according to a report in
Hadashot. Terrorist leaders
are exerting pressure on him,
but the king is standing fast.
He has informed the United
States that while Palestine
Liberation Organization of-
fices are open in Amman,
their activity is restricted,
Hadashot reported.
Nevertheless, the infiltra-
tion, though short-lived, was
unnerving. The three ter-
rorists were captured alive
after a brief shoot-out with
security forces, shortly after
they crossed the Jordan River
near Maoz Chaim and Bet
Shean, south of the Sea of
Galilee. One of the three was
wounded.
It was the first infiltration

since Nov. 25, when a lone
Palestinian riding a motor-
ized hang glider, crossed the
Lebanese border into upper
Galilee and killed six Israel
Defense Force soldiers at a
military base and wounded
seven, before he was shot to
death.
Maariv reported that the
three terrorists belong to the
Palestine Liberation Front, a
group headed by Mohammed
(Abul) Abbas, who master-
minded the October 1985 hi-
jacking of the Italian cruise
ship Achille Laura
The infiltrators reportedly
traveled from Iraq to Amman,
where they were given
Kalachnikov assault rifles
and other equipment and
briefed on their mission. The
head of the PLO military
staff, Khalil Al-Wazir, also
known as Abu Jihad, was in
Jordan at the time.
Gen. Amram Mitzna, IDF
commander of the central sec-
tor, told reporters after the in-
filtration that the Jordanians
are working to prevent ter-
rorist activity aimed at Israel.
