"I suddenly realized Israel's people are alone except for us.
I guess this is my way of saying, 'You're not alone'. "

'Funeral'

Continued from Page 5

a rally and a procession of
more than 100 cars marked
with the names of Palesti-
nians killed during the recent
uprisings in the Gaza Strip
and West Bank.
Conyers, D-Detroit, was a
featured speaker at the event,
and letters of support were
submitted by Reps. David
Bonior, D-Mt. Clemens, and
George Crockett, Jr.,
D-Detroit.
Other politicians, including
Detroit and Dearborn Mayors
Coleman Young and Michael
Guido, were contacted about
the event but did not respond,
Santi said.
Local reports also listed Ed-
ward McNamara as lending
support to the procession — a
claim spokesmen for the
Wayne County Executive
would neither confirm nor
deny. The only statement
McNamara issued in
response to questions on the
matter was "I support any
cause that opposes the killing
of children and women!'
Repeated attempts to speak
with Bonior and Conyers
were unsuccessful. However,
Julian Epstein, ad-
ministrative aide and
spokesman for Conyers, said
the representative's participa-
tion in the event was an ex-
pression of his concern for the
recent wave of violence in the
Middle East and for the Israel
Defense Forces' use of "heavy-
handed tactics" against the
Palestinians.
According to Epstein, Con-
yers' presence at the proces-
sion was a protest against the
"clear and repeated violations
of the human rights of the
Palestinian civilians living in
the West Bank and Gaza.
There has been an unjustified
use of violence to suppress
uprisings whose roots are in
quest for freedoms that are
fundamentally American."
Asked if Conyers' state-
ment at the rally, calling for
recognition of "the legitimate
representatives of the Palesti-
nian people," translated to the
Liberation
Palestine
Epstein
Organization,
replied: "We don't get hung
up on semantics!'
Later, Conyers said through
Epstein that the Palestinians
and no one else should be
given the right of deciding
who will represent them at
the negotiating table.
Epstein acknowledged that
incidents of antagonism have
been committed by both sides,
but he said there has been
"disproportionate force used
by the Israeli army."
In his letter of support,
Bonior labeled recent in-
cidents of violence in the ter-
ritories "yet another
manifestation of the grave in-

Rep. John Conyers:
Heavy-handed tactics.

justice being done to the
Palestinian people by being
denied self-determination
and a homeland."
He added that "The Palesti-
nian people have legitimate
claims that must be address-
ed over a negotiating table
and not with tear gas and
bullets and beatings and
bulldozers!'
Crockett, in a telephone in-
terview from his Washington
office, said he issued a state-
ment in support of the proces-
sion, beginning with his
declaration of "deep regret"
that he could not attend "this
sad but important event!'
He condemned what he
termed Israel's "iron-fist"
policy and mourned those
Palestinians whom he said
were killed not only by Israeli
soldiers, but by settlers and
civilians as well.
In his letter, Crockett said
he hoped the procession
would bring to the attention
of the Reagan Administra-
tion, the Congress and Israel
that "it's time for a change in
the Middle East!' As part of
this, he recommended that
Israel relinquish the
territories.
Crockett also said that no
fair settlement in the region
can be achieved without the
participation of the
"legitimate representative of
the Palestinian people."
Although not mentioned in
his statement, Crockett said
this refers to the PLO.
Crockett said he does not
feel the Palestinians have
played any role in instigating
violence in the territories, but
rather "Israel has done
everything wrong and the
Palestinians are just fighting
back!'
Last week's procession was
organized by 14 local Palesti-
nian groups including the
Palestine Aid Society, which
Santi described as a non-
profit organization dedicated
