JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTER with NANCY GURWIN PRODUCTIONS

presents

tion in the Israel daily
Haaretz, where Ofra Banjo of
Tel Aviv University wrote:
As the world's attention
has been riveted to the
Palestinian uprising,
another intifada — that of
the Iraqi Kurds — is being
suppressed with great
brutality. The Kurds' upris-
ing antedates that of the
Palestinians, but it never
succeeded in penetrating
the world's consciousness.
The Iraqi government was
completely successful in
covering it up, and the
Kurds never developed a
campaign to disseminate
their message to the world.
Could it be that the biased
attitude of the media has
kept this national struggle
out of the headlines?
Iraqi President Saddam
Hussein placed his cousin
Hassan Ali Majid, the head
of security services, in
command of the operation
to suppress the Kurds, and
he carries out the task as
systematically and as
brutally as Saddam Hus-
sein carries out his. He
made use of the air force,
the elite Presidential
Guards and two divisions
(out of eight) which are per-
manently posted in the
Kurdish region. In the
course of the battle, scores,
if not hundreds of Kurdish
towns and villages which
were located on strategic
roads or near the border,
were totally wiped out.
Hundreds of thousands
of Kurds were exiled to
remote areas near the Jor-
danian or Saudi Arabian
borders. And worst of all,
poison gas was used as a
deterrent and punitive
weapon against a civilian
population. The Baghdad
regime's aim is clearly to
use the respite afforded by
the cease-fire in the war
with Iran to put an end,
once and for all, to the Kur-
dish problem.
it can be expected that in
the short term, Iraq will
succeed in delivering a
heavy blow to the Kurdish
national movement. But it
is not likely that it will suc-
ceed in ending the pro-
blem. Baghdad is also
operating within limita-
tions of its own, and there
is a Gordian knot tying her
internal Kurdish problem
to Iraq's foreign problems.
As long as Iraq's dispute
with Iran and Syria (and
even with Turkey) con-
tinues, one can expect that
each of them will fan the
flames of Kurdish rebellion
for their own purposes.
The uninhibited means
used by the Baghdad

&Idler
°bathe
Roof

regime against the Kurds,
will not bring their goal of
creating a unified Iraqi
people, which would in-
clude the Kurds, any closer
to fruition. On the con-
trary, they will act as a
boomerang and will only
succeed in fanning the
flames of Kurdish na-
tionalism and making the
Kurds more determined
than ever to achieve their
aims.
Despite Baghdad's pre-
sent show of force, it seems
likely that, in the long run,
the regime will have to pay
for the criminal acts it is
perpetrating against its
own citizens. In the mean-
time, as in all the previous
uprisings, the innocent
civilian population is pay-
ing the price for the
mistakes of its own Kur-
dish leadership, for its
abandonment by Iran, and
for the silence of the
enlightened world.
Sufficient public opinion
sentiments must be mobiliz-
ed to rescue Kurds whose
lives have been under cons-
tant threat. The example set
by Israel is a necessity for
mankind.

Vandals Torch
Manhattan
Synagogue

New York (JTA) — Vandals
set fire to the entrance of Cen-
tral Synagogue in midtown
Manhattan early last Thurs-
day morning, charring a pair
of newly refurbished doors
which had been unveiled on-
ly the day before in honor of
the synagogue's 150th anni-
versary.
Flammable liquid was
poured on the doors before
they were set on fire shortly
before five in the morning,
police said. No messages or
slogans were found at the
scene, but police have called
the fire "suspicious."
The fire struck as the
historic Reform temple
prepares to celebrate its foun-
ding 150 years ago this
month, according to Rabbi
Stanley David.
"One wonders whether this
person noted this develop-
ment and waited for (the
doors) to be completed," David
said. "It leaves me with a
sense of sorrow that someone
was so filled with anger and
hate that he would move
against a sanctuary."
The attack follows by a
month the burning and dese-
cration of a Brooklyn
synagogue. Two minors have
been charged in the case.
