has been critical of the new
anti-Semitism is that
published by the Young
Communist League (YCL).
An op-ed in the Times by
William Korey, the B'nai
B'rith director of interna-
tional policy that appeared
three days before Keller's
piece in the magazine stated
that an article in the YCL
paper by a Jewish member of
the Congress of People's
Deputies had described
"clouds of pogroms .. .
gathering over our heads."
Grigory Kanovich was
aghast that "this incitement
to murder takes place before
the eyes of all" as au-
thorities "ignore the thugs
and inciters."
According to Korey,
Kanovich has "conferred
briefly" with Mikhail Gor-
bachev about Russian anti-
Semitism, urging him to
assure that a petition con-
demning signed by 200
members of the Congress of
People's Deputies be sub-
mitted to that body's
presidium. When the peti-
tion was submitted to the
presidium last year, writes
Korey, it was burned. Even
after Kanovich met with
Gorbachev, the petition was
stricken from the list of such
documents that would be
forwarded to the presidium.
Korey implored Gorbachev
to "now forcefully express
humane concern. It could
even prove helpful to his
program of perestroika."

In the New Republic,
Walter Laquer observed that
Soviet authorities "turned a
blind eye" to Pamyat when
it was formed in the early
1980s. "But when they real-
ized that Pamyat was not
just fanatically anti-
Jewish," he wrote, "but also
that it would dearly love to
hang the Communists and a
great many other 'anti-
patriotic elements,' the offi-
cial attitude became less
benevolent."
And the Washington Post
has concluded that "the
pogrom has returned to
Europe." Although written
specifically about the anti-
Armenian violence in the
Soviet republic of Azerbai-
jan, the Post's conclusion has
ominous repercussions for
Jews throughout the USSR:
"One of the aspects of
the anti-Armenian pogrom
was its dispassion. These
were not the acts of a mob;
they were apparently
planned. Addresses had been
carefully collected in ad-
vance, local police made
little effort to curtail the
violence, the potential vic-
tims had been told to leave."
