Paranoia

Continued from Page 7

From my perspective,
however, I see Jewish-
Christian social interactions
— really intimate non-
business interactions —
declining; Jewish-black in-
teractions are declining; in-
deed, my suspicion is that
anything but Jewish-Jewish
interactions declining.

lb be sure, there is a risk
with relationships with non-
Jews because we never know

in advance who, under stress,
will surprise us and hurt us,
and ultimately make us
doubt Christians. The risk is
worth taking, because
without the risk we 'become
isolated, and with that isola-
tion, self-destructive. In the
final analysis, risk not-
withstanding, it is only
through the risk-taking that
we can affirm our own par-
ticipation in - the human
endeavor. ❑

Israel Cited For Legal
Rights Violations

Geneva (JTA) — Israel has
been cited by the Interna-
tional Commission of Jurists
for violating the civil rights of
eight Palestinian attorneys
who were held in ad-
ministrative detention last
year.

Israel was among the coun-
tries named by the Center for
the Independence of Judges
and Lawyers, which the
Geneva-based- Commission of
Jurists set up to promote an
independent judiciary and
legal profession all over the
world.

In releasing the report to a
U.N. subcommission on
human rights, the Center
called on the United Nations
to monitor the protection of
practicing lawyers.
The report said "the ad-
ministrative detention of
Palestinian lawyers at a time
when. over 18,000 Palesti-
nians were arrested and de-

United Nations (JTA) —
Israel criticized the Security
Council last week for failing
to pass a formal resolution
calling for an end to the
bloodshed in Beirut.
The Foreign Ministry said
it was "regrettable" that the
Security Council limited
itself only to an "expression of
sorrow" by the its current
president, Hucine Djoudi of
Algeria.
The Security Council con-
sulted at the request of
Secretary-General Javier
Perez de Cuellar, who asked
for a "concerted effort" by the
Security Council to work
toward a cease-fire in
Lebanon, where fighting
betweeen Christian and
Syrian-backed forces has been
intense.

tained in a 12-month period is
a cause for great concern."
It noted that the Israeli
authorities brought no
specific charges of illegal ac-
tivity against these lawyers
nor did they disclose any
evidence against them.
The lawyers, from the West
Bank and Gaza Strip, were
engaged in a "strike against
the military court system in
Gaza and legal defense work
on behalf of Palestinians ac-
cused of security offenses,"
the report said.
It concluded that "in the
absence of specific charges
and disclosed evidence, the in-
ternment of these lawyers
was precipitated by their pro-
fessional advocacy activities."
A list presented here this
week contains the names of
34 lawyers and judges killed,
37 detained and 38 who were
attacked or threatened with
violence in the last 18 months
in various countries.

The consultation did not
result in a formal resolution.
Instead, Djoudi's statement
"deplored the intensification"
of fighting in Lebanon, ex-
pressed "great disquiet at the
loss of human lives" and call-
ed for a cease-fire on the part
of "all parties."
"The statement does not
even mention Syria by name,"
said the Foreign Ministry in
a statement. "Surely the
tragic situation in Lebanon
warrants more decisive action
by the Security Council."
Barukh Binah, spokesman
for the Israeli mission, said
the Council never hesitates in
trying to condemn Israel
when there is disapproval of
its actions.
Fighting in Lebanon has
left an estimated 700 dead.
