high Soviet officials and
members of the Jewish
WJC secretary general Is-
rael Singer and executive
director Elan Steinberg
reported on their trip last
week, a visit that included
the first open meetings bet-

government and a Jewish
organization in recent
memory. So unabashed were
the Soviets about dealing
with the Jewish group that
the meeting between Soviet
Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze and WJCon-
gress leaders was broadcast
on Soviet television.
Tass, the Soviet news agen-

proceedings within 45
minutes after completion of
the two-hour meeting, fol-

Izvestia. The reports included
direct mention of talks on the
question of Soviet Jewish
emigration and religious
"The phones were ringing
off the hook in Moscow," said
Singer, who said refuseniks

previously unknown group
calling itself "Duty and
Faith?' A message, written in
English, said the fruit was
poisoned "to punish those
who help Israel by buying its
The message told police
where to find the fruit, but
warned that "next time it will
be distributed throughout the
various supermarkets?'
A poisoned fruit scare in-

panicked consumers in Italy

Civil Servants
On Strike

Tel Aviv (JTA) — About
60,000 civil servants went on
strike Tuesday in the first of
a series of walkouts and work
stoppages expected to involve
more than 100,000 public sec-
