Witnesses Describe
Hate Groups' Goals

New York (JTA) — Two pros-
ecution wittnesses testifying
at the Fort Smith, Ark., trial
of 14 hate group leaders de-
scribed a coalition of anti-
Semitic, racist paramilitary
groups that planned a series
of crimes in 1983 intended to
lead to the overthrow of the
federal government. The wit-
nesses, James Ellison and
Kerry Noble, are former lead-
ers of the survivalist group
The Covenant, the Sword and
the Arm of the Lord.
They told the jury in federal
district court of a 1983 plan to
initiate murders and rob-
beries intended to cause dis-
ruption and chaos in large
cities, race riots and a "chain
reaction" that would end in
the ultimate overthrow of the
federal government and its
replacement with an all-
white "Aryan Nation."

Their testimony is central
to the government's case
against the 14 defendants,
ten of whom are charged with
"seditious conspiracy." All 14
have pleaded not guilty. Elli-
son and Noble are unindicted
co-conspirators testifying

Christ-Christian of the Aryan
Nations; Robert Miles, former

United Nations (JTA) —
Citing an escalation of ter-
rorist attacks against Israeli
civilians and an attempt on
the life of Secretary of State
George Shultz in Jerusalem
last week, Israel accused the
Palestine Liberation
Organization Tuesday of try-
ing "to murder the idea of
peace" in the Middle East.
The acusation was contain-
ed in a letter from Irael's am-
bassador to the United Na-
tions, Benjamin Netanyahu,
to U.N. Secretary General
Javier Perez de Cuellar.
Netanyahu said that the
terrorist hijacking Monday of
a bus in the Negev, which
resulted in the deaths of three
Israelis and the wounding of
10 others, and other recent at-
tacks were part of a PLO cam-
paign "not only to kill Israelis
and to annihilate Israel, but
to murder the idea of peace
He noted that all of the at-
tacks were carried out by Al
Fatah, the main branch of the
PLO headed by Yasir Arafat;
"all were directed against
civilians in the heart of
Israel; all were timed to scut-

tie progress toward peace
negotiations, as is readily ap-
parent by the attempt to
murder Secretary Shultz."
Netanyahu was referring to
a booby-trapped car
discovered last Friday near
Shultz's hotel in Jerusalem.
It was safely dismantled.
