procedure. He said he regular-
ly consults with rabbis and
other clergymen for input on
the matter.
If the bills are signed into
law, Michigan would become
the fifth state that would
allow religious objections to
halt autopsies. New York,
Ohio, New Jersey and Califor-
nia have implemented
similar laws.
The law would obligate
medical examiners to consult
with family members or other
survivors. before performing
autopsies unless the death
was a homicide or a possible
threat to public health. If the
medical examiner is not
satisfied with a survivor's ob-
jection, the doctor could ap-
peal the decision in the cir-
cuit courts.
Regulations for doctors are
more strict. Michigan physi-
cians need written consent
from the surviving spouse,
next of kin, parent or guar-
dian before performing an
autopsy. Officials for Sinai,
Beaumont and Providence
hospitals said their respective
policies on performing autop-
sies are consistent with the
state law.

'IDF Violated
Tear Gas Rules'

rIbl Aviv (JTA) — A team of
doctors made public a report
accusing the Israel Defense
Forces of flagrant violations
of its own regulations gover-
ning the use of tear gas to
disperse rioters in the Gaza
Strip.
The doctors charged that
many of the Palestinian
casualties from the beginning
of the uprising, last
December, until April were
the result of tear gas fired in
closed areas. It caused at least
30 pregnant women to
miscarry, the doctors claimed.
The team of six doctors was
organized by Knesset
Member Dedi Zucker of the
left-of-center Citizens Rights
Movement to investigate
medical conditions in the
Gaza Strip. They had the full
cooperation of the IDF.

Arab Exports
Israeli Products

Tel Aviv (JTA) — An enter-
prising Lebanese living in
Israel is operating a regular
oceangoing cargo service bet-
ween Haifa and the Beirut
area, the newspaper Davar
reported.
The three small vessels
owned by Amin Haj, a Shiite
merchant who makes his
home in Nahariya, carry

Israeli agricultural products
to Lebanon. From there, some
of them reach other Arab
countries that officially
boycott Israel, Davar said.
About 90 percent of the
cargo carried originates in
Israel and has an estimated
value of several 'million
dollars annually. Lebanese
produce accounts for 10 per-
cent of the freight.

'Israeli Police
Assault Press'

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The
Foreign Press Association has
accused the Israeli police of
physically assaulting jour-
nalists performing their
duties and has demanded a
stop to it.
The press association held a
news conference in Jerusalem
Tuesday — an unusual step
for reporters — and gave
details of incidents of physical
assaults by police on its
members. They called on
Police Minister Haim Barley
to investigate and punish
those responsible.
Association chairman Bob
Slater of Time magazine said
there were between 100 and
150 incidents of physical at-
tacks on foreign journalists
reported between last
December, when the Palesti-
nian uprising in the West
Bank and Gaza Strip began,
and early April.
Other association members
complained of public hostili-
ty toward foreign cor-
respondents. They cited
bumper stickers popular with
Jewish settlers in the ad-
ministered territories which
say "Country United Against
A Hostile Press:'

U.N. Mideast
Mission Ends

Geneva (JTA) — A special
U.N. committee investigating
Israeli human rights prac-
tices toward Palestinians
returned from a 12-day fact-
finding mission to the Middle
East with damning informa-
tion, all of it obtained from
Palestinians.
Since the committee was
set up by the U.N. General
Assembly in December 1968,
Israel has refused to allow it
access to the West Bank,
Gaza Strip and Golan
Heights, territories captured
by Israel in the 1967 Six-Day
War.
The Israelis accuse the com-
mittee of a built-in anti-Israel
bias. As a result, the commit-
tee takes testimony from
Palestinians in Arab coun-
tries where no refutation is
offered.
