moral support of the Palesti-
nians," she said. "This way,
they don't feel isolated and
that nobody cares."
Moral support has brought
a great deal of help to the
Palestinians. According to a
brochure, among the PAS ac-
complishments are building
in 1981 a bomb shelter for the
Burj al-Shamali refugee camp
in south Lebanon; providing
funds for the Prisoners
Defense Committee in the
West Bank and Gaza; and
selling more than $250,000
worth of embroidery made by
Palestinian women.
In 1988, the PAS also
"directed all efforts —
political and financial — sup-
porting the uprising."
"They don't go in and buy
firebombs or sharp stones," an
observer at the Israeli Con-

Zip

sulate in Chicago said. "But
they support those involved in
the intifada."
Ameri agrees the PAS sup-
ports those involved in the
uprising, but only by "helping
organizations that give jobs to
women and helping families
of political prisoners. From
our perspective, that is help-
ing the intifada."
That's what the PAS has
done. Ameri is equally ada-
mant about what it has not
done — fund the PLO.
Rumors to that effect
erupted into a full-scale
dispute when, during a recent
CNN broadcast, a disguised
figure said the PAS diverts
funds to the PLO. Ameri is
considering taking legal
action.
"The PLO doesn't need our
money, believe me," Ameri

The Palestine Aid Society.
The Arab American Anti-
Discrimination Committee.
The United Holy Land
Fund. Add them all up and
what does it spell?
It spells bad news for
Israel, according to Irwin
Suall, fact-finding director
for the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith in
New York.
"The Palestine Aid Socie-
ty is part of a broad move-
ment that is dedicated to do-
ing in the State of Israel and
alienating the American
people from the Jewish
state," he said.
Suall, who has researched
numerous Arab-American
groups in the United States,
is-not impressed by PAS pro-
nouncements that it sup-
ports a two-state solution in
the Middle East. Its actions
indicate otherwise, he said.
He cited PAS backing of the
establishment of a Palesti-
nian state; its continued op-
position to American aid to
Israel; its support for the
Arabs in every war with
Israel; and the fact that the
PAS never opposed acts of
terrorism committed
against Israel by the
Palestine Liberation
Organization.
He noted several PAS
pamphlets circulated in
1983, one called Zionism Is

a Form of Racism and
Racial Discrimination. He

termed this "characteristic
of their propaganda."
To prove the PAS has
backed its words through
support of the PLO is
another matter, Suall said.

The difficulty in tracing
whether funds generated by
groups like the PAS go to
the PLO is that no "I Sup-
port the PLO" campaign ex-
ists. Instead, Suall explain-
ed, these groups send money
to places controlled by the
PLO.
He pointed to the PAS's
donations, beginning in
1980, to Association Najdeh,
which provides training in
such areas as typing, sewing
and English language for
Palestinian women and
children in refugee camps.
Palestinian refugee camps
were, in the early 1980s,
controlled by the PLO, Suall
said.
"And from the early 1980s
through the mid-1980s,
there was no dispute about
the terrorist nature of the
PLO," he said.
While the group most fre-
quently mentioned in the
same breath as the PAS is
the PLO, the Detroit
organization also has had
numerous contacts with
communists. Guest speakers
at recent PAS conventions
have included Rob Prince,
leader of the Communist
Party in Colorado and now
a full-time member with the
World Peace Council, which
Suall described as "a Soviet-
front organization"; Tawfiq
Zayyad, a member of the
Communist Party in Israel
and former mayor of
Nazareth; and Gus
Newport, a former mayor of
Berkely, Calif., whom Suall
described as "an extreme lef-
tist."
