Sanctions To Continue
Against Syrians

Washington (JTA) — The
Reagan administration will
not remove current sanctions
against Syria as long as ter-
rorist groups, most notably
Abu Nidal's militant Palesti-
nian organization, are
allowed to operate from
Lebanon's Bekaa Valley,
State Department officials
said last week.
The possibility of repealing
the sanctions was raised after
the department's 1987 ter-
rorism report, released last
week linked Syria to just one
major terrorism incident in
1987, as compared to three in

Although there are no
plans to remove the sanctions
a State Department source
said that some "could be lifted
at some point."
State Department spokes-
woman Phyllis Oakley prais-
ed the reduction in direct
Syrian involvement in ter-
rorism, but said the reduction
would not lead to Syria's
removal from the depart-
ment's list of state sponsors of
Syria has been on the list
since it was first drawn up in
1979. Listed countries cannot
receive U.S. foreign aid or
goods and technology that
would improve their military
or terrorist support capa-
Oakley said that as long as
terrorist groups train in
Syrian-controlled territories,
sanctions will be maintained
against Syria.
Yosef Gal, spokesman for
the Israeli Embassy in
Washington, refused to praise

Syria for any recent improve-
ment in its stance on ter-
"We have not seen anything
to indicate that Syria has
changed its policy on support
for terrorism," he said.
Sanctions against Syria
were imposed in 1986 after a
British court implicated
Syria in the attempted bomb-
ing of an El Al Airlines plane
in London, which had more
than 230 U.S. citizens aboard.
Great Britain severed its
ties to Syria after the verdict,
and maintains only an in-
terest section in Damascus.
The United States, Canada
and West Germany also re-
called their ambassadors, but
returned them in 1987.
The sanctions include bar-
ring Syria from participating
in export-import bank loans
or programs and from receiv-
ing subsidized wheat from the
Department of Agri-
They also bar Syrian Arab
Airlines from selling airline
tickets in the United States.
In a related development,
while Syria has not had an
ambassador to the United
States since 1986, a new U.S.
Ambassador to Syria, Edward
Djerejian, was sworn in last
Wednesday, replacing Wil-
liam Eagleton Jr.
Djerejian previously served
as senior deputy assistant
secretary of state for Near
Eastern and South Asian Af-
fairs. He has also been depu-
ty spokesman for the State
Department, and has served
in Jordan and Lebanon.

Justice Department Files
Papers Against Nazi

Washington (JTA) — The
Justice Department filed
denaturalization papers in a
federal court in Minneapolis
last week against of an alleg-
ed Nazi guard during World
War II.
The action in U.S. District
Court is the first by the
federal government against
Edgars Inde, 79. If the lawsuit
is successful, the Justice
Department can then begin
deportation proceedings.
Inde is accused of serving in
the Arajs Kommando, which
Office of Special Investiga-
tions Director Neal Sher call-
ed a "notorious unit which
had as its principle objective
the murder of unarmed Jews
and other civilians."
The group, based in Latvia
where Inde was born, aided in

the persecution and murder
of those persons considered by
the Nazis to be racially
undesirables or enemies of
the Third Reich, the com-
plaint said.
The U.S. Attorney's office
and the Office of Special In-
vestigations, which searches
for and prosecutes Nazi war
criminals, charged that Inde
lied and concealed hit past
when he entered the United
States in 1949 and became a
U.S. citizen in June 1955.
Inde, who has 20 days to
answer the charges, is a
retired factory worker the
Washington Post reported
Tuesday. The Post reported
that the proceedings, Inde
denied that he participated in
killing unarmed Jews and
other civilians.
