San Francisco (JTA) —
Safeway Stores Inc. has
agreed to pay $995,000 to the
U.S. Commerce Department
to settle charges that the
supermarket chain coop-
erated with the Arab boycott
against Israel.
Peter Magowan, board
chairman and chief executive
officer of Safeway, based in
Oakland, Calif., said last
week's cash settlement, a
fraction of the one originally
levied, "is a victory for us and
in no way constitutes an ad-
mission by the company that
we violated the law."
Moreover, he said, Safe-
way's conduct has been vin-
dicated by the fact "that its
practices did not merit the
harsh penalties the govern-
ment previously sought."
The Commerce Department
had charged Safeway with
449 violations of the Export
Administration Act of 1977,
imposed a $4.5 million fine on
the supermarket chain and
sought a two-year suspension
of the company's export

privileges. Besides reducing
the fine in the settlement, the
government dropped its de-
mand to keep Safeway from
doing business overseas.
But Will Maslow, AJCon-
gress legal counsel and an ex-
pert on the Arab boycott,
called the agreement "a vic-
tory for the OAC (Office of
Anti-boycott Compliance) and
shows how strong its case was
from the very beginning."
The Commerce Department
originally charged Safeway
with supplying approximate-
ly 10 stores in Kuwait and
Saudi Arabia between 1981
and 1986 with a list of the
company's suppliers, some of
whom were Israeli. According
to the OAC, that list subse-
quently enabled the Arab-run
grocery stores to boycott cer-
tain Israeli-manufactured
products.
The Arab stores were li-
censed to operate under the
Safeway name, but were not
owned by the company. Safe-
way claims it no longer sells
products to the Arab stores.

Left-Wing Italian Jews
Voice Mixed Feelings

Rome (JTA) — Left-wing
Italian Jews are trying to sort
out their mixed feelings
about Israel's current policy
toward the Palestinians and
the way it impinges on them
as members of the broader
left in Europe.
These issues were brought
into the open at a crowded,
emotionally charged con-
ference in Milan over the
weekend. It was held in the
context of past and present
relations between the Jewish
community and other Italians
in social, political and other
areas.
There was general agree-
ment that the last 20 years
have seen a shift of the Euro-
pean left from sympathy with
Israel to a sometimes radical
pro-Arabism.
This is in many ways a wor-
risome development, said
ederico Steinhaus, president
I f the Jewish community of
I erano, in northern Italy.
Non-Israeli Jews are in-
reasingly a target of the
hange in European leftist at-
itudes that stem from the
967 Six-Day War, he said. He
oted that since then, Jews
ave been accused of
quating criticism of Zionists
ith anti-Semitism.
Federico Coen, a socialist

activist, told the Milan
meeting that since the 1967
war there has been a weaken-
ing of the links between the
ideals of Zionism and the
ideals of socialism.
Israel began to be
stigmatized as the avant-
garde of imperialism in the
Third World. "One person
killed by Israel counted the
same as 100 deaths caused by
the Arabs," he said.

Gun License
Applications Up

Jerusalem (JTA) — There
has been an upsurge in ap-
plications for gun licenses by
the general public, a develop-
ment linked directly to the
continuing unrest in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip and the
escalation of terrorist incur-
sions against Israel.
The head of the Interior
Ministry's firearms licensing
department, Moshe Weiss,
said Monday that the
ministry's strict licensing
policy is under review and
may be relaxed. It has
generally favored Jewish set-
tlers in the administered ter-
ritories, while residents of
Israel proper have a tough
time obtaining a license.
