Israel Wants Mandatory
Soviet Jewish Emigration

Washington (JTA) — Israel
has begun issuing the invita-
tions Soviet Jews need to ap-
ply for exit visas with the re-
quirement that emigrants go
directly to Israel through
Romania. The requirement is
an attempt to stop most of
them from going to other
countries, including the Uni-
ted States.
However, an Israel Embassy
source, who last week con-
firmed that new invitations
have been issued, stressed
that so far, there is no change
in how Soviet Jews leave the
They can go to Bucharest,
as a small number of immi-
grants have done for the last
six-to-eight months, or to
Vienna as most emigrants do,
and then on to either Israel or
another country. If the Israeli
requirement were to become
mandatory, those who receive
an invitation would not
receive their exit visas until
they reached Bucharest and
would thus have no choice but
to go on to Israel.

Karl Zukerman, executive
vice president of HIAS, sug-
gested that this mandatory
policy would not go into effect
until Israel is allowed to open
a mission or consulate in the
Soviet Union. Negotiations
are being conducted on this
beween Israel and the Soviet
Union, which broke diplo-
matic relations with Israel
after the 1967 Six Day War.
Meanwhile, the Dutch Em-
bassy in Moscow continues to
handle the invitations from
Israel and no changes have
been made despite the new

The new requirement
would not prevent Soviet Jews
who have relatives in the
United States, Britain,
Canada or other countries
from seeking to join them.
Since last July, the Soviets
have permitted persons with
relatives in the United States
and other countries from
receiving invitations from
them and not just from Israel,
as was the previous practice.

New York (JTA) — The
awarding of the Templeton
Prize, a religous prize, to Dr.
Inamullah Khan, secretary-
general of the World Muslim
Congress, has been indef-
initely postponed after
charges of anti-Semitism
were raised by the American
Jewish Committee and the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith.
Both groups charged last
week that Khan had long
promulgated anti-Semitism.
The sponsors of the Temple-
ton Prize postponed the
award's presentation in order
to investigate the Jewish
groups' accusation.
In addition, an independent
investigation by New York
Times reporter Peter Stein-
fels has uncovered additional
damaging material on Khan
and the World Muslim Con-
Rabbi A. James Rudin, in-
terreligious affairs director
for the AJCommittee, said he
had enough evidence of
"hostility toward Jews" to
cause him to send a cable to
Sir John Templeton, founder
of the prize, protesting the
Abraham Foxman, national
director of the ADL, sent a
letter to Templeton saying
Khan heads "an openly anti-

Jewish organization" that
has espoused the revisionist
theory that the Holocaust
never occurred.
Khan, 73, lives-in Karachi,
Pakistan, headquarters of the
Saudi-financed organization
that claims to promote Mos-
lem unity and defend the
rights of Moslem minorities.
