Bonn (JTA) — Two Ger-
man companies that alleged-
ly supplied Iraq with soph-
isticated equipment and
know-how to produce
biological weapons were
named in several newspaper
reports earlier this month.
The reports alleged that
although the export of the
materiel and technology was
illegal, the Bonn govern-
ment not only tolerated it
but provided state guar-
antees to back the
multimillion dollar deals the
companies had with Iraq.
The companies named are
Water Engineering Trading
(WET), based in Hamburg,
and the Laboratory Supply
Co. (Labsco). Several WET
employees are still in Iraq
working on the project, the
reports said.

The Frankfurter Rund-
schau warned Jan. 12 that
biological weapons in the
hands of terrorists were a
greater threat to European
and American cities than
their use on the battlefield
by Iraq. .
According to the news-
paper, the Iraqis in fact have
little experience and insuffi-
cient equipment and raw
materials to produce effec-
tive biological weapons.
But Saddam Hussein
might provide small quan-
tities of biological agents to
terrorists to contaminate the
water resources of Europe
and America.
The ensuing panic could
pressure the various
governments to make con-
cessions to Iraq, the news-
paper speculated.

Diet Powder Being Sent
As Food For Ethiopians

New York (JTA) — A high-
protein food supplement
widely used in weight reduc-
tion programs is being sent
to Ethiopia to enrich the
meager diets of an estimated
12,000 Jewish children who
are waiting with their
parents to emigrate.
About 48,000 portions of
Slim-Fast, a chocolate-
flavored, water soluble
powder, has been donated by
the manufacturer, the
Thompson Medical Co., it
was announced here by Bar-
bara Ribakove Gordon, na-
tional director of the North
American Conference on E-
thiopian Jewry.
"Although Slim-Fast is
best known for its use in
weight reduction diets, the
food is very nutritious and
contains a substantial
percentage of the required

protein, vitamins and min-
erals," Ms. Gordon said, ad-
ding, "it is also kosher."
The powder will be shipped
to Ethiopia and distributed
there by the American Jew-
ish Joint Distribution Com-
mittee, which maintains a
medical and health program
for Jews in Addis Ababa, the
Ethiopian capital, Ms. Gor-
don said.
"We expect this food
supplement to make a
significant difference in pro-
tecting the health of the
children who, together with
their parents, are forced to
live in terrible, make-shift
housing in the slums in
Addis Ababa."
She thanked Dr. Edward
Steinberg of Thompson
Medical for "his concern and
involvement in making this
food available."

USSR To Import Israeli
Medical System For Elite

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The
Soviet Union will import a
sophisticated emergency
medical system developed by
Magen David Adom, Israel's
equivalent of the Red Cross,
to serve the estimated
125,000 foreign residents
and senior government offi-
cials in Moscow..
The system, known as
"Keshev," was recently in-
troduced by the Red Magen
David's paramedical service

.

in Ramat Gan, a suburb of
Tel Aviv.
The decision to establish
such a service for the
Moscow elite was reached
last week by Valeri Bikov,
the minister of medical and
microbiological industries,
who heads a Soviet medical
mission currently visiting
Israel.
The system includes a
Keshev emergency beeper to
summon police.
