During the past three months, the following individuals have made
contributions to Jewish Family Service and Resettlement Service.
With sincere appreciation and gratitude, we would like to thank:

old Nazis have lost their
power to harm us in every
way except one, namely in
their ability to force us to
twist and distort our system
of justice in order to catch
The green light for the
trials was given last month
when members of Parlia-
ment, in a rare "free vote,"
overwhelmingly supported a
proposal to allow war crimes
suspects to be indicted in
British courts.
Home Secretary David
Waddington, who strenuous-
ly supported the parliamen-
tary proposal, is now press-
ing for a swift amendment to
the law which will remove
the procedural obstacles that
now stand in the path of
such trials.
Under existing laws,
British courts do not have
the power to indict suspects
who were not British at the
time of their alleged
offenses, whose crimes were
not committed on British
soil and whose victims were
not British.
In addition, it is expected
that the laws of evidence
will have to be amended to
allow the admission of
testimony by satellite or
taken on video from
eyewitnesses in Eastern
Europe who are unwilling or
unable to travel to Britain to

give evidence in person.
During the parliamentary
debate, Waddington paid
tribute to the contribution
made by the Los Angeles-
based Simon Wiesenthal
Center, whose Israel direc-
tor, Efraim Zuroff, produced
many of the names being in-
vestigated by British au-
The list of suspects handed
to the British government by
officials of the center
prompted a commission of
inquiry, headed by Sir
Thomas Hetherington, a
highly respected former di-
rector of public prosecutions,
who investigated allegations
against a small sample of
the alleged war criminals.
The commission noted that
"the crimes committed are
so monstrous that they
cannot be condoned" and
found sufficient evidence to
justify prosecutions of at
least four of the suspects.
One has since died.
"The cases we investigated
disclose horrific instances of
mass murder," the report
said, "and we do not consider
the lapse of time since the
offenses were committed, or
the age of the offenders, pro-
vides sufficient reason for
taking no action. To take no
action would taint [Britain]
with the slur of being a
haven for war criminals."

New York (JTA) — The

Gruff") Griffin gave a news-
paper interview in which he
made outrageously anti-
Semitic statements, among
them that the Jews "were
responsible for the majority
of wickedness in the world."
After Griffin's statements,
the band's lead singer,
Chuck ("Chuck D")
Ridenhour briefly suspended
Griffin from Public Enemy
and then temporarily
dissolved the group. But less
than a month later, the
group reassembled and
Griffin was reinstated.
In an interview on MTV
last month, Ridenhour ad-
dressed the issue of the up-
coming record's revival of
the canard of the Jews hav-
ing killed Jesus. He said the
idea "was based on Chris-
tian belief, but not my own."

Chiropractic Health Hints



If you are the victim of sciatica, you know what "shooting pains"
are all about. The sometimes excruciating pain of sciatica frequent-
ly affects the hip, thighs, and back of the leg. The ankle and foot
are sometimes affected, too. But, that is not where the problem is
The sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the body, extends from
the lower spine to the back of the thigh and knee. Then it divides.
One nerve goes down the front of the lower leg; the other travels
down the back of the leg.
It is the inflammation of the sciatic nerve that causes the pain.
The pain can be triggered by an irritated nerve root. The cause may be
traced to a misalignment of the spinal column that is placing abnormal pressure on the
roots of the sciatic nerves as they pass between the vertebrae.
Through X-rays and other procedures, the Doctor of Chiropractic can locate misaligned
vertebrae. Using gentle adjustment, the doctor can align it properly again to help eliminate
the cause and the pain.
