Jerusalem (JTA) — Rabbi
Moshe Levinger, the Gush
Emunim militant who led the
Jewish settlement movement
in the West Bank, finally
went on trial in Jerusalem
District Court Monday for
killing one Arab and woun-
ding another during a
shooting spree in Hebron last
Levinger, 54, pleaded not
guilty to a manslaughter
charge that carries a max-
imum penalty of 20 years
His trial was to have open-
ed in April, but it was
postponed three times as a
result of delaying tactics. Lev-
inger first said he couldn't
find a lawyer. Then the one he
did find, Ya'acov Nehoshtan,
challenged the Jerusalem
Court's jurisdiction over the
incident, which occurred in
the West Bank. Then he ask-
ed for more time to study the
On Monday, when
Nehoshtan claimed the
charge sheet was unclear,
Judge Ezra Hadaya lost his
temper and ordered the trial
to begin forthwith.
Levinger insists that Jews
and Arabs can coexist
peacefully provided the Arabs
recognize that the land
belongs to Jews who are there
to stay.
He is accused of firing shots,
first into the air near and
then toward the local
marketplace, after his car was
stoned near his home in the
Jewish quarter of Hebron
almost a year ago.

One of the bullets killed a
42-year-old Arab shoe vendor.
Another Arab was wounded.
Levinger, who is free on
bail, told reporters after leav-
ing the courtroom that "they
should try the real criminals,"
who he identified as "the
leaders of the intifada," the
Palestinian uprising.
Before appearing in court,
Levinger and six supporters
marched to the East
Jerusalem home of Palesti-
nian activist Faisal Husseini,
followed by a troupe of
Husseini, 49, is one of the
most prominent leaders of
Palestinians in the West
Bank and East Jerusalem,
and a supporter of the
Palestine Liberation
Organization and a two-state
As Husseini emerged from
his home, Levinger shouted,
"You are here to kill Jews.
You are the biggest terrorist
in Israel."

While the reporters scribbl-
ed their notes, Husseini
replied, "Was it I who killed
someone with a pistol?"
Levinger often has been in
the news for his actions. He
led a group of Jewish squat-
ters to Hebron during the
Passover holiday in 1968, less
than a year after the Israel
Defense Force occupied the
Although their presence
was contrary to Israeli policy
at the time, no effort was
made to remove the squatters,
who established themselves
in a local hotel.
Eventually, Moshe Dayan,
who was then defense
minister, allowed the'group to
move into the IDF military
compound in Hebron.
Within a few years, the
group built the new township
of Kiryat Arba on high
ground overlooking Hebron.
Levinger subsequently led
another group of squatters to
occupy buildings in Hebron's
old Jewish quarter, vacant
since Jews fled the town dur-
ing the Arab uprising of Aug.
24, 1929, 60 years ago last
Levinger is the acknowledg-
ed leader of the Jewish
enclave in the heart of Arab
Hebron, protected by the IDF.

Uris Returns
To Poland

New York — Best-selling
author Leon Uris will return
to Poland this fall for the first
time since writing Mila 18 as

United Jewish Appeal's Dor
L'Dor Major Gifts Mission. In
Warsaw, Uris will describe
the events and circumstances
of the ghetto uprising at the
site of Mila 18, the head-
quarters of the Jewish
resistance command in 1943.

Circumcision Is
Seminar Topic

New York — The legal,
medical and religious aspects
of ritual circumcision were ex-
plored by 45 men and women
from the Reform movement
during the first-ever con-
ference of the National
Organization of American
Participants in the three-
day conference, held in Lake
Tahoe, Calif., discussed such
subjects as outreach to inter-
married and unaffiliated
families, post-circumcision
medical concerns and the
techniques of circumcision.
