KKK Grand Dragon
In Mississippi Is A Jew

ARTHUR J. MAGIDA

Special to The Jewish News

T

he new Grand Dragon
of the Realm of Miss-
issippi, Christian
Knights of the Ku Klux Klan,
is a Jew, according to Klan-
watch Intelligence Report,
the monthly newsletter of the
Southern Poverty Law
Center.
This is the second time Jor-
dan Gollub, 29, has been a
state leader in the Christian
Knights of the Ku Klux Klan
(CKKKK), according to the
newsletter. He was formerly
the Grand Dragon of
Virginia, an organization
from which he was banished
in 1985 after his Jewish roots
were revealed.
Upon resigning from the
Virginia group, Gollub told a
newspaper reporter, "I am
really concerned about what
their reaction will be. I'm
really scared they might con-
sider having me killed. There
are some bad people in the
organization, in my opinion."
The Klanwatch Intelligence
Report was not certain why
Gollub, who resides in Poplar- -
ville, Miss., was reinstated in
the CKKKK. But the publi-
cation reported that the hate
group "apparently sees
Mississippi as a prime re-
cruiting area, as there has
been little organized activity
in the state for quite some
time. Gollub, always an active
member, has recently ini-
tiated several marches in the
state, with several more
planned for the future."

`Who Is Jew'
Question Realigns
U.S. Jewry

The "Who Is A Jew" ques-
tion may be off Jerusalem's
political agenda — at least,
for the moment — but it has
"fundamentally" altered the
relations of U.S. Jews with
Israel and with each other, ac-
cording to New York Times
reporter Ari L. Goldman.
In the Times article,
Goldman reported that the
"Who Is A Jew" dispute has
led to these developments
among American Jews:
• "A greater readiness" to
intervene in internal Israeli
affairs.
• A "more selective ap-
proach" to giving to Jewish
causes. One supporter of
Jewish' groups said he had
withheld funds until Israel's
current coalition government
was formed because he would
"not give my money to in-

stitutions that will declare
my grandchildren non-Jew-
ish."
• A "renewed effort" to
standardize conversion prac-
tices so "that the religious
parties in Israel will stop
pressing the issue."

A New York Orthodox rab-
'bi, Irving Greenberg, head of
the Center for Learning and
Leadership (CLAL), said the
"only hope" of rebuilding a
reunified Americdn Jewry
was to find ways for joint con-
version practices between the
major Jewish denominations.
But Rabbi Yehudah Krin-
sky, a high official in the
Lubavitch Chasidic group
based in Brooklyn, said he
saw no need for such pro-
cedures. He asserted non-
Orthodox rabbis are being
told by those they have con-
verted that the rabbis had
"deceived" them by telling
them they had been properly
converted to Judaism. Now,
"by the thousands," said
Krinsky, these people are
seeking Orthodox conver-
sions.
But Wolfe Kelman, ex-
ecutive director of the Conser-
vative Rabbinical Assembly,
said the Lubavitcher's con-
tention was "wishful think-
ing" accompanied by "no
evidence whatsoever."

Palestinians
To Offer
End To Intifada?

In an editorial, the Israeli
newspaper Ha'aretz, inter-
preted two recent statements
by West Bank Palestinians as
offering a possible political
solution to the yearlong up-
rising in the West Bank and
Gaza.
One statement came from
Bethlehem Mayor Elias Freij,
who called to stop the intifada
for a year in exchange for the
release of Arabs being held in
"administrative detention" by
the Israeli government.
Freij's offer, said Ha'aretz,
"is likely to be interpreted
not only as the expression of
a single individual's yearning
for -a cessation of the blood-
shed, but also as testimony by
a shrewd Arab public figure
who senses the masses'
fatigue over manifestations of
youths, which is bringing
them more suffering than
satisfaction."
The other statement came
from a jailed uprising ac-
tivist, Faisal Husseini, when
he was visited in prison by
Israeli parliament member
Yair Tzaban. Husseini said
