"The people there went
on a rampage and burned
the police station," the
Israeli officer said. "They
were throwing everything
they could find — stones,
bottles, even slingshots. I
had to go in with six men
and restore order?'
It is not a pretty picture and
the Friedman report must be
judged as unprejudiced. It is
the evidence of the grave dif-

ficulties confronted by Israel.
It is part of the agonized road
to peace for Israel, and it
must be travelled on a way
that should eventually lead to
peace. It must be a peace that
will affirm that Israel will not
submit to a suicidal status.
The obligation to labor for
peace rests upon the
statesmanship of the world's
diplomatic leaders. The pre-
judices accumulated against
Israel in the process will sure-
ly be condemned in the world
records as the most
deplorable of the current
experiences.

West Germany Trial Of
Terrorist Closely Watched

Bonn (JTA) — Israeli and
Western observers are closely
watching the trial that
opened in Dusseldorf last
week of Abbas Hamadei, a
Lebanese-born West German
national accused of a key role
in the kidnapping of two Ger-
man businessmen in Beirut
early last year.
Their interest stems from
questions raised about the
West German government's
resolve to deal firmly with
terrorists in hostage situa-
tions. Hamadei, 29, is the
brother of Mohammed Ali
Hamadei, who is serving a
prison term in Frankfurt.
The prosecution alleges
that Abbas arranged the ab-
ductions of Rudolf Cordes,
Middle East representative of
the Hoechst Chemical Co.,
and Alfred Schmidt, an
employee of Siemens Indus-
tries, to be released in ex-
change for his brother. The
kidnappers freed Schmidt last
September but continue to
hold Cordes. They have
threatened to kill him if Ab-
bas is convicted and warned
of retaliation in West
Germany.
They are also demanding
the release of Mohammed, 23,
who is accused by the United
States of the June 14, 1985
hijack of a TWA airliner
enroute from Athens to
Beirut and the murder of an
American passenger, U.S.
Navy diver Robert Stethem.
Mohammed was arrested in
Frankfurt on Jan. 13, 1987
for illegal possession of ex-
plosives. Bonn rejected U.S.
requests for extradition. He
was tried in West Germany,
but not charged with the hi-
jack and murder because they
were committed against an
American aircraft and an
American citizen.
At the opening of proceed-
ings in the packed district

court, heavily guarded by
armed police, Abbas appealed
to the kidnappers to release
Cordes. His lawyers insisted
he had nothing to do with the
kidnappings.

Jews Supported
Mayor Goode

Philadelphia, Dec. 21 —
While a substantial majority
of Philadelphia's Jewish
voters voted for Frank L. Riz-
zo — a white — in their city's
recent mayoral election, Jews
nevertheless gave a far larger
percentage of their votes to
incumbent Mayor W. Wilson
Goode — a black — than did
other white ethnic voters.
This was one of the key fin-
dings of a study of the elec-
tion sponsored by the
Philadelphia Chapter of the
American Jewish Committee.
"While Jews for the most
part did vote like other
whites," stressed Dr. Sandra
Featherman, "nevertheless,
in Philadelphia and in many
other cities across the nation,
Jews have apparently been
more supportive of black
mayoral candidates than
other whites have been."

Jewish Grants
Fight Hunger

New York — In an effort to
help relieve the widespread
hunger and malnutrition in
the black "homelands" of
South Africa, the American
Jewish Committee and the
American Jewish World Ser-
vice recently announced a
grant of $60,000 earmarked
for eight villages in Lebowa,
South Africa.
The joint grant of the
Jewish agencies will help pro-
vide local residents with
tools, supplies and expertise
to grow food.
